1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / What's with the Siacoin wallet on Poloniex? on: May 26, 2017, 08:38:53 AM
Hey guys,

Does anyone know why you cannot deposit/withdraw Sia on Poloniex? It appears that the issue is at least few days old, but didn't found explanation (other that they have some unspecified problems with the wallet).

Thanks,
Spartak

Imagine to have your entire fortune in some of the top coin/s: "My net worth is $50 Million". Ten minutes later: "My net worth is $35 Million". On the next day: "My net worth is $120 Million.". Funny, eh? Cheesy

Imo, margin bull slaughter fest... panic sellers burned, then the rise will come. Healthy correction / pullback if it holds. it's the 5th hour. Gandalf the White will soon come.

What if the sell walls yell: "You shall not pass!"? Cheesy

And, just for the record, I think it was yesterday when I looked on CoinMarketCap and saw that only 2 out of the top 100 coins had about 2.5% decline - all others were in green. See what happens now.

EDIT: Now I counted them again - 51 coins out of the top 100 are with -10% or more decline for the past 24 hours.

Read "A Random Walk Down Wallstreet" or "Fooled By Randomness". In fact, just read "Fooled By Randomness."

What I hear when I read comments about short term market moves is, "Noise just noise noise noise! White noise noise and also noise!"

And this comes from a guy who promotes ICO? I've been playing this "game" for quite some time now. Maybe you should read how I predicted the DAO failure a week before the attack? I'm not playing the smartass here, I'm just having some concerns (and it's not from today). Now try to be more constructive if you have opinion other than I'm being the dumb guy here.  

Ok, so it dropped 13 percent? Which is perfectly normal after the current rise? Who cares. It might even drop another 13 percent? And from there it will rise again. Why the fuzz? Remember when everybody sells it is the perfect time to buy.

I care for people who are overpricing coins. Personally I don't give a shit even if it drops down to $1200.

This doesn't surprise me and should surprise no one.   Things don't rise this fast without people taking their money off the table.   This whole market has me freaked out.  I've never seen this much of a bubble even in the stock market,  and I've been following stocks for many years.

I can just imagine what will happen in short term with billion coins like DOGE and SIA. If this dump continues (though it's a bit early to talk about real dump as Bitcoin is still up comparing to yesterday's price), then thousands of people will cry. Won't mention names of other coins (or whatever) on purpose. Cheesy

Current average price is $2470 and market cap $85 Billion. Let's see what happens in the coming hours/days and how it's going to affect alts...


8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / What if... on: May 25, 2017, 12:21:34 PM
Ethereum without question has a significant contribution for the current success of a lot of digital currencies (and, of course - current price of Bitcoin), but what if someone find another major flaw as they did with the DAO? Some of you may remember that about a week before DAO attack I've opened a thread (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1504662.0) and expressed some personal concerns. One of my statements was:

Technology is becoming more and more sophisticated. I'm kinda against that, because majority of the people are not "geeks". This could be a big problem for Bitcoin (and others), since it is cryptocurrencies against fiat money "thing" (i.e. people vs. banks). Making things more hard to understand will eventually interfere the adoption of the cryptocurrencies (at least in the way we see it now, because in the future, the banks can use the technology for themselves and the ordinary guy will be screwed... again). Maybe current technologies may find its use in 5-10-20 years (who knows...), but not now...  
 

I still think we're in a bubble (link to another thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1926969.0) and while I am very excited, I'm also extremely scared... Can you imagine what might happen with Bitcoin price and all these Ethereum based ICOs and crowdsales, which raised vast amount of money? Don't get me wrong - I will repeat that personally I don't care about BTC's price as long there is some stable growth. I am here for the long run (after at least next block reward halving) and I strongly believe that what we're seeing now is still nothing. Digital currencies are potential market for trillions of $ (or euro - whatever suits you). 

What do you guys think?

OK, got it - thanks!

P.S. Not our problem as long people are able to withdraw their coins. Wink

What's the reason?

I'm not sure about the real reasons.... On their main page there is a long message explaining that this month they will have a financial loss... and so they need to review their business type.

They are about to delist a lot of coins... for the ones with wallet in maintenance status, they are simply raking users coins without giving nothing back. Really bad behavior.

Just opened their website, but I fail to see any message. Can you please give me a ink?

We already had GoalCoin, which was a complete failure.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: We're in a bubble on: May 22, 2017, 07:43:43 PM
Personally I don't care if Bitcoin is $1k or $10k as long as everything goes smoothly. Last year I already tried to predict it will reach $2000 by this Summer and it did. And I also think it will be in the $5 - $10k range by 2019, but it's just scary as we have major problems and such growth is not justified... But that's just my opinion...

Great news, but nothing surprising... Smiley
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Ethereum enterprise alliance on: May 22, 2017, 10:11:34 AM
So, what does this mean for ethereum ? Well it means now these corporations who joined together with ethereum will put tons of their trillions$ into researching and developing ethereum

Like they did with The DAO? Grin Now log in with your other Mindlesscache account and agree with yourself. Wink

Not sure how/why you're missing this, but ANT is on Bittrex:

I'm not wrong and I'm not arguing, since last year I predicted BTC will reach $2k by this Summer, but I was also expecting some actions by core developers (and "hard fork supporters") to be made. But it looks like hard fork is probably inevitable and this can result in some huge financial losses.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: We're in a bubble on: May 21, 2017, 08:45:43 PM
This isnt a bubble, we are still the earliest of adopters. Golds market cap is over 110X larger than Crypto right now.

I think it's over 1%, but that's not important. You think that something valued at ~1% of the gold in existence in ~8 years is tiny...?
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: We're in a bubble on: May 21, 2017, 07:55:41 PM
Banks are sometime using a 50+ year old code.

I've seen computers in factories that are twenty years old and cant be upgraded because of some weird dependency.

I've done this already. Was supporting a mining quarry and factory, which has machines for 100s of thousands and sometime millions. Some of them are, of course, attached to computers. This is one example (took this picture probably 2 years ago):



This one (and like 3 others) was attached to a PC with a 700 MHz Duron CPU... The only difference was a port, which is a Siemens patent and the motherboard was like $1500. Bought few second hand computers for like $20 each, then found PCI cards with this port for ~$70-$80 and all was working again. Smiley

Doge last commit on github in 2015... Blackcoin same almost.

Your point is? BC is one of my favorites (and one of my huge "failures" (as I made like 4 BTC profit from it in 2 weeks, but it later reached such heights, that I've "lost" over $100k in potential profit)). Banks are sometime using a 50+ year old code.
