Awesome for a dead coin if I can say so myself! Cheesy

Looks good! I'm down for one too. Is this a physical litecoin with a private key behind the hologram with litecoins on it? Or just a pretty coin?
145  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Litecoin implementing confidential transactions on: September 22, 2016, 07:13:55 AM
This is taken out of context and the time that happened was during a different phase in the cryptosphere. I believe during that time the cryptosphere was crazy about NXT and all the other platforms that had similar features like the ability to make your own token and have it traded in the exchange in the platform. Counterparty was also new and it had its own exchange. Then there was Dogeparty which was a flop. I speculate that there were a lot of people who felt that litecoin was going behind the times because it was not following that trend.

But the statement by Charlie Lee that said that LTC does not need more development is what he really felt at that time and it is true. Then now seeing how XMR is going forward and in front of the rest in all of altcoins and also became accepted by the darknet, who would not have a change of heart? XMR could be the nail in the coffin of LTC if it does not have those features of XMR integrated.

I guess I can better tell you what I was thinking at that time. Litecoin gets all the Bitcoin developer's work practically for free. I did not think that adding the latest fad would help Litecoin much at all. Litecoin, like Bitcoin, was already by far a much better form of money than anything else. We just needed more exchanges, merchants, and user adoption. Other coins need these gimmicks to pump their value, but Litecoin did not.

That said, I've know all along that fungibility was the one feature that keeps Bitcoin/Litecoin from being perfect money. And this is something Bitcoin will solve eventually I believe. But Litecoin can help out. It's much easier to get a soft fork (or even a hard fork) pushed through for Litecoin. And with a much smaller market cap, I think it's a perfect place to test out something like confidential transactions. (Of course, Blockstream might disagree and think that Elements Alpha is a fine test network for CT.) So, I've decided that it's time for me to do something to help move us towards this goal.

It is going to be an uphill battle if LTC is trying to implement and match the privacy features that of monero.

Somehow I don't think that is the goal, based on recent statements, but it remains to be seen what is true.

Not even close. I don't think that's the idea and imho, it would be a huge mistake. I honestly believe that the anon coins would be targeted by the authorities at some point.

P.S. Don't take this like I am a XMR hater.  

We are still figuring this out. Of course, doing a hard fork is a high barrier and would require a very good reason.

What do you mean by "targeted by the authorities"? Do you think anon makes Litecoin less valuable because of this?

Litecoin shitiest coin of them all.

This coin has no future. I don't expect it will be able to hold $3.8 before end of September. Big crash coming soon.

This shit coin just needs to fucking DIE already.

Hmm, maybe you should try to change your username bitcoinlitcoinbtcltc. Tongue

I've posted my thoughts on this as a reply to a reddit thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/litecoin/comments/53lqq3/litecoin_confidential_transactions_philosophically/

If anyone has questions for me, I will try to answer them. Post it either here, on reddit, on telegram, or even twitter.

Please stop spreading lies. Coinbase is very healthy and we have a long runway.

Charlie Lee
Director of Engineering @ Coinbase

its up to your insurer to decide that now

public opinion is growing that ur funds have run out

Our insurer decides nothing. I don't think you understand how our insurance works.

Luckily public opinion can't change a lie to be the truth. Otherwise, we would be in trouble!

Sadly, people will just keep posting FUD.

I've tried almost all permutaions of [...] No luck.
I tried that too. Still no luck.

A bit off topic, but very interesting. How are you doing that? Are you using your video to calculate key pairs? How many keys/second approximately can you check?

Well. only this is confirmed: 5Juu2CkB3-----EcyH9dypNhDZ8fXgh6RQwwbo5------------

Are you found this yourself? Can not find message with confirmation.

Confirmed by Sakarias-Corporation. He/she should confirm it in this thread also.
152  Economy / Games and rounds / Re: Bitcoin Cipher/puzzle - 0.56 Prize ! Bitcoins on: August 18, 2015, 08:43:22 PM
Well then now I have:

5Juu2CkB3EAhBpEcyH9dypNhPetergh6RQwwbo5ueBa6------E



I bruteforced all keys associated with this pattern.  This is not correct.  I suspect the Peter needs to be changed to something else.

Change it to "DZ8fX"

Changed it to DZ8fX and no luck.

Well. only this is confirmed:

I got this PM from OP:

here's some clues. these are the ones i've seen on the document which are currently Right
1 5Juu2
2 2CkB3
4 EcyH9
5 dypNh
7 gh6RQ
8 wwbo5


Also here's a Clue ''sometimes going back will refresh your memory''

Not sure if there's any significance of him using two single quotes (') instead of a double quote (") to quote that clue.
156  Economy / Games and rounds / Re: Bitcoin Cipher/puzzle - 0.56 Prize ! Bitcoins on: August 11, 2015, 06:57:11 AM
To be honest, without any error checking, I am not able to go further. As any answer could be totally wrong. And we could just be barking up the wrong tree trying to think of another solution when we already have the right one.

OP, I think it would be useful for you to confirm when we have found the right solution for any question.
157  Economy / Games and rounds / Re: Bitcoin Cipher/puzzle - 0.56 Prize ! Bitcoins on: August 10, 2015, 04:48:28 PM
This puzzle is especially tough because private keys are a bunch of random letters and numbers. There’s no error checking in the solution, so you can easily come up with multiple answers to each part and you wouldn’t know which is correct.

then we get
Quote
5hee2
which looks like the beginning of a private key.
The second character in an uncompressed private key has to be one of H,J,K. If we use 'XoXo' from the hint to indicate case, we get 5HeE2.
If you decode 5hee2 with the same shift cipher as the hint, it comes out as 5juu2, and 5Juu2 would also be a valid start for a private key. Also, part of the hint was "UU EqUAl SmAll lETTErS", which further points in this direction.

Bingo. I think that's it. the hint is actually all upper case "UU EQUAL SMALL LETTERS"
