1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: The Future of Bitcoin Scalability: An Introduction to Lightning Network & Alter. on: May 23, 2019, 06:26:18 AM
IMO DPoS is a double-edged sword, it's better in decentralisation than PoW (this advantage may be more and more insignificant over time) and energy saving, but lack of supports from the mining industry, which is a problem for a bitcoin fork. LBTC may be regarded as a DPoS version of bitcoin, it's a very interesting experiment that no other bitcoin forks had done before or after. Time will tell us if this is a better approach.

And there's the rub of this whole story as we need the support of the miners in the implementation of LBTC. At any rate, we should welcome any development or innovation that can possibly address the problem of scalability while not compromising one of the main tenets of the blockchain which is decentralization. I am sure that soon the whole industry can be able to arrive at solutions acceptable to all stakeholders. Do you think what are the reasons why miners are not interested with DPos?

As a DPoS "miner", first you have to hold a certain amount of coins in your wallet, then you need to vote to one or more delegates (validators), a common PC or even a laptop would work fine, you don't need any ASIC or GPU mining rig at all. It's a totally different logic from PoW. Mining farms are very heavy assets, but they don't have any advantage in the PoS/DPoS consensus mechanism. I think this is why miners are not interested in DPoS.

I am so glad that I joined the airdrop. The wallet looks so cool, I believe SEM will be as successful as XEM Grin

By the way, I am wondering if there will be more rounds of airdrops in the future?

what if my account rank is upgraded during the airdrop? can I send a pm to the moderator to change my information?

There is a good chance the script reads the rank daily.


Thanks for your quick answer, which solves my doubt Wink

I have the backup file of wallet.dat, but the wallet I just downloaded (win64 version) doesn't seem to be working. Does anyone know how to sync the wallet? Many thanks!
I don't know exactly what happen but you try to copy/paste this code into conf file in ..\AppData\Roaming wallet folder.
dns=1
addnode=www.cryptounited.io
addnode=74.208.133.18
addnode=82.176.15.155
addnode=66.66.243.140
addnode=223.134.231.97
addnode=46.4.64.68

Many thanks for your help. The wallet is moving now, but the sync speed is too slow (8 connections in total), is there any way to accelerate?

quite surprised to learn that ECC is still alive, gonna check my wallet, I remember that I still have some coins remaining from 2014 Smiley
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Next 100x? on: October 09, 2017, 01:54:40 PM
I believe 0x definitely has the potential to be 100x, just need to be patient
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: red pulse ICO worth it? on: October 09, 2017, 01:52:36 PM
bought some at the first round, but failed at the 2nd round Sad
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Ethereum SCAM? on: June 14, 2017, 01:53:40 PM
I don't think Ethereum is a scam. IMO Ethereum is revolutionary and much better than Bitcoin in many ways.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: Where to buy ICOs on: June 14, 2017, 01:18:41 PM
the ROI of most recent ICOs are lower than ETH, so I think it's better to hold ETH.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Ethereum is about to take over Bitcoin on: June 14, 2017, 01:13:59 PM
It's already very close now, it's just a matter of time.

How can you say that, ETH is way behind BTC in terms of price and market capitalization and for ETH to take over BTC still a very long time needed.
Yes that's right ETH is far behind BTC, maybe ETH can take over btc in the next 10-20 years, it can happen if BTC continue to experience down and abandoned. Grin

It won't take that long. The gap in market cap is just 25%, maybe it will happen in a few months.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Ethereum in 5 years on: June 14, 2017, 01:07:46 PM
My prediction is $600 by the end of 2017, but hard to tell what it will be 5 years later.

It's amazing to see Catcoin is still alive. I once mined some Catcoin in 2015.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: | STRATIS | The first blockchain developed for businesses |Full POS on: June 14, 2017, 12:37:36 PM
STRATIS is better than ethereum classic.
ethereum classic price is 700k+ satoshi so expect STRATIS price more than ethereum classic.
Don't lose this opportunity to turn it to x10 or more

It's already 1100x against the ICO price, do you really believe it still has the potential of x10 or more?
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] [XEL] :: Elastic - The Decentralized Supercomputer :: on: June 14, 2017, 12:32:54 PM
is this project similar to Golem or iEx.ec?

Only one day left, don't miss the train guys. My ETH is ready Smiley
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: IOTA on: June 14, 2017, 12:07:50 PM
instantly top 6 in marketcap, this is insane, I don't think it will stay at the current price for long.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Marketplace (Altcoins) / Re: [BOUNTY] [ICO] PATIENTORY: Blockchain-Secured Medical Records on: June 14, 2017, 12:03:01 PM
anyone knows what is the exact time of releasing the signature bounty?
