You can buy keys off of, for ~69% US price (71% for EUR price, which is equiv to 2.43 USD). Even greater savings if you are in state with income tax (they cost me $2.71 each), since Valve charges US sales tax.  They like to subsidize EU country, like Sweden and 25% VAT.

They are $1.72/ea there.

Why not just use this?

I always have some bitcoin I could trade for Paypal.  I lose some 3% in this process currently.

But, how does one guarantee such a thing with 6 month Paypal chargeback policy?
3  Economy / Currency exchange / Re: HAVE BTC WANT PAYPAL on: November 11, 2018, 10:07:05 PM

Yeah?  I'd buy up to $1000 if you send first.

I wouldn't pay a 5% premium, though.

Maybe 2%.

I guess it'd depend on your definition of 'scam'.

I'd be shocked if they aren't getting some kickbacks from adding all these shitcoins.  There is a disturbing amount of them now on Cryptopia.

Yet other "legit" stuff is strangely absent -- like the WAX tokens that Opskins has been pushing for 1/2 a year.

other stuff -- the support has always been slow, but i've never had issues with withdrawal and deposit.  sometimes it takes longer than it should.  a couple days at most, for me.  

the bitcoin fee was adjusted upward for reasons unknown a bit ago, despite bitcoin blocks not being (regularly) full for some time.  the fee could be 50 cents and they'd still profit more than 50% off of t hat.  instead, it's over $4. 

some nominal fee of 5 satoshi or something would be nice for sell orders.  maybe cut down a bit on the bots.

We have more than one block explorer being worked on. The old one at blockexperts should also be re enabled. Few other explores we tried are at max capacity. There should be a backup soon. As of right this moment is not reporting 100% correctly on the website it's a few days outdated. The XCO wallet in SSH is correct however, we are in contact with and wallet support and listing teams. We never had issues with XCoin blockchain. Our wallets have never been put in maintenance. Hoping due to this slight issue they might let us fix our explorer. We are still hopeful that we can change there minds.

I have sent email with screen shots showing year long communication with blockexperts still delays to solve issues.
Maybe they can give us little more time. In any case msgs have been sent in discord lastnight and today, mainly to update them on our progress. Our project is not dead our blockchain works fine. Many of our long time supporters have also voiced their concerns and the recent delisting notice. We have since applied to be listed on more exchanges.

All is not lost yet. We have come back from serious issues such as this few times before. Most recently year ago when bittrex removed XCO after 3 years of trading. In the end they pulled us off due to lack of volume and to add newer coins the community wants. Since we are community focused and have major goals to make crypto easier and safer and in used for everyday life thus plans for upcoming XCO Security Hard Fork are still underway. Yet we do need a working explorer first before any exchanges will list us.

Lack of volume?   Seems some bit curious to me.  The chart looked like some fairly typical ASICBanditry pump & dumpery, re; 1) have acquired enough coins on said exchange to make it worthwhile, via mining or purchases, 2) mine coin for a bit to raise difficulty to excessive level, 3) begin the pump, knowing that you won't have to deal with some massive influx of sellers (I learned my lesson on this from 'VERSION', laugh), 4) profit.   Not possible with this coin though, is it?  Or are these block explorers wrong, and it's not all proof of stake?

It actually concerned me some bit that Cryptopia delisted this coin, during what seems to have been a pump that was still ongoing.  'Volume' was the reason cited?

My interest in XCO?

From what I was seeing it looked like the pump was going to continue higher (as it apparently did), but I had sold most of what I had earlier at ~200-225, I just dumped the last 20k or so under this big obnoxious sell order at 300 satoshi (it was pretty obvious, if the person behind that is reading this, laugh).

It makes me concerned for some of these other scamcoin/shitcoin/'innovative new coin that I created by changing a few integers' (i should have released my mr. t coin years ago, damnit!) that I have in enough quantity to cause some damage if they were delisted (two examples: wayawolf and flaxscript, and a third that has a pump currently in progress, that being ZSE -- very similar to XCO, this one).

I think Cryptopia probably just isn't telling the full truth here -- don't see how volume could be the reason in the case of XCO.

Delisting notice from Cryptopia :

Xcoin (XCO)  gets delisted on Cryptopia !

Please withdraw your coins !
Prior to withdrawing, we recommend checking the CoinInfo page as to the status of the coin!

The coin will be fully delisted one month from 7th April
(the last day for all these delisted coins on the exchange being June 7th).
Any issues or questions regarding these delistings should be sent directly to the developers of the respective coins.

Regards Lafu

ed:  oh!  I see now.  There was a notice about the delisting.  Jesus.  I need to pay more attention to these things.  What a perfect opportunity for a pump & dump.

Where are these notices?  *boggle*

6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [V] Version [V] | 60% PoS | Personal Storage Vault v2.2.0.0 on: April 22, 2018, 05:48:19 PM
Oh, is looking better than expected, so I guess today is the day, have some 18-20 hours left for the 24 hr moving avg to remain in the huge positive.

Volume needs to be about 5-10 BTC to start attracting random casuals.  It's sad to see someone is selling out for so little already, this ASK at 48 or 49 satoshi or whatever it is.  I will clear it if it's still there in a few hrs.

Not this 1 bitcoin amount at 200 satoshi, though.  That would take some really great momentum.  Though, gotta say, this coin is actually 'legit', vs. these others I've messed with, bitbean, ooo, ladacoin, ...  Maybe that does help some?  LOL.

ed:  Aborting -- some active seller that is dumb (?) and putting up huge sell amounts on ask side.  I only have this ? because it's possible that it may just be someone accumulating some more before their own pump.  Who knows.  Not gonna spend 0.05 bitcoins to get it to 50 btc volume with someone putting a million at 100.  If the guy is actually trying to profit off the coin, that is one hell of a cockblock. 

I guess it's flax script,

Aha.  Finally was able to get a bunch sold to me & grabbed some more earlier today, after having to raildump my 'Elements' on Friday -- some random guy with an ASIC.  Bad news for Elements.

This coin doesn't have quite as good an orderbook as OOO (the wondercoin Om), but coin supply isn't terribly high and there's not a whole lot on Yobit, so seems like a nice, relatively safe bet (ofc if the value of bitcoin plummets, you know how it is  with the sh... altcoins!).

This coin is a bit more flashy than Om (the coin for Christianity) and there are a few updates to the client, but it's mostly just some variable changes and then lifted commits from bitcoin core?  At least the dev seems to be active.  The best news is that it really doesn't matter so much!

After additional thought, it might be best to work on increasing our volume on the current exchanges. SouthXchange or other small exchanges doesn't ensure that we will get any more volume. Even if we get it listed on there, it might just sit there and that would be more negative than positive. Noise plans to update the website within the next few weeks and once that's done, we should launch a marketing campaign on CMC and other popular sources in order to get more volume. That in itself should put this coin on a path to doubling or more within the next few months. There's no way that this coin should be worth less than 10 cents. IMO, we might be able to hit 10 cents by the end of the year, if we can get a more active community and attract new investments.

I've got some errands to run today, so not sure what I'll do on Cryptopia, is a bit of a dilemma.  I sold to myself at 29 satoshi to try to keep the daily avg low, but I guess there's more trading going on now.   It's not best time for me for active pump, but maybe in some hours.  Today may need to be the day, after all.

I had some 50-500% estimate gain for Om, but I think V will max out at some 300%, unless this knob removes the huge sell order at 100 satoshi.   So my prediction for Version?   50-300% gain within the next several days, and then back to 30 satoshi within a month or two.

Viva la revolución!

(ps - keep up the good work with the activity posts)

This coin is cool, like OOO.   I wish I had more & I think someone is trying to pump it a bit too early here, but ...  when 0.10 takes you up 300%, it's pretty good.

That being said, nothing new here ... move along, now

You ether need more peers (to activate more than defal which is 8 I do believe) and/or get faster storage using RAID with HDD or use SSD.

Connection to more peers won't help in syncing the blockchain.
The speed is mostly limited through CPU and Hard Drive, not amount of connections or internet speed.

A RAID is for redundat storage (done for reliability). It does NOT increase the speed in any way.

Only SSD do give a distinct advantage in speed.

Sort of.

Connecting to a single fast peer is the best way. 

Modern computer & SSD -- from blocks ~100,000 to ~250,000, can sync fast enough to do something like 20-50MB/s.

re: RAID, this is untrue, but I won't go into length about it, can do a simple google search.  I always set my RAID up as striped.

ed: the distribution chart is quite different from when I bought in and became #2 holder.  there is someone showing at 800k.  it still has the possibility to go up a bit more, if this 800k holder is 'friendly'.

it was 860k, now this person has started selling, & you can see the result.   a few trades back and forth to himself, &  the large bid at 400 satoshi is this same person

but, anyway,  if you are not this person, you should sell.  to his or her bid.  just sayin'.

jesus weeps

i have picked new currency.  but i have to get some first.  it may take a while.   keep an eye out!

I sold mine at 700 satoshi or so.  Will give update on next coin, thanks.

You can reference my post on April 4th for more info on this coin,

Hi! Devs, what kind of programming language do you plan to use? Is there some code of this project already exist?


It is written in C++, of course.  I decided to do another minute or so of research and found that it is based off of bitcoind v0.8.2.  A couple of variables are changed and a few copyright violations are made -- that is the extent of the changes.  The developer likely has no knowledge of C++ whatsoever.

full disclosure:   I am #2 holder on Cryptopia.  My short term outlook is over the top bullish, I expect 40-500% gains within the next month (to be wiped out over the course of the next week or two) -- or whenever buying more would induce maximum benefit (need a favorable one day moving average to achieve maximum +%).  Long term?  It's not worth a single satoshi.

I never looked at 'Bitgem' since it was priced outside of my typical viewing range.  Sigh.

The project looks quite interesting. I think these services will be in demand on the market. Say me when the ICO start?

I am not sure what the project is & I doubt the services will be in demand... ever.

I don't think there are any innovative ideas here.

... but, gotta say, this coin has a beautiful orderbook and distribution graph on Cryptopia.

It is on my shortlist of coins to pu.... watch.   I think it could be even better than Ladacoin.

Bandwidth (or even CPU processing power) will become a limiter way before HDD space.

I know the client allows you to set outgoing limits now, but I ended up killing the public node I had going after some sustained 1Gbps upstream for over 12 hrs.  Not sure if it was legit block downloads or just someone being a meanie.  Couldn't say it's a DDoS since it wasn't a lot of diff streams.  I guess it's also possible I got to the top of that seed list.

The one thing that this big blockchain does cause is make it hard to find some VPS out there that have enough space for it =)

Speaking of which, dacentec has some $20 and $25 servers right now.   alas, they broke my affiliate link.  so i'm not even making anything from this.  jaja.
