What is the point of doxxing someone? Do you really need to post his personal information here for everyone to see? What if someone did that to you? Please be considerate of others and remove this.

Now it all makes sense. No wonder why the original SolidCoin announcement thread seem to be written by a very level-headed person, and yet RealSolid banned me on #solidcoin on IRC when I started asking some hard questions. And no wonder some of CoinHunter's recent posts are well written, and some of them seem to be written by a psychotic, arrogant, idiot. I'm glad the SolidCoin supporters have started to reign in RealSolid.

You on the other hand can't go one day without an intelligent thought. Ooo burn. Get back to studying for your highschool stuff and forget about adult conversations until you are one.

CoinHunter, please read your the above sentence again. I guess you can go many days without an intelligent thought. Maybe you are the one that shoud "get back to studying for your highschool stuff and forget about adult conversations until you are one."

So that is why you shut down the mined block rewards, to prevent any one else from getting enforcer nodes. BWT, web of trust isn't a slogan or keyword. It is in fact what PGP authentication was originally based on and you could have just cut and paste that code (after removing all the licenses and claiming it as your own work of course). No wonder the Bitcoin devs didn't give you the time of day.

Haha, "dude there is like this code that is open source, simple copy-paste job". Well you just outed yourself as NOT A PROGRAMMER. Let's keep listening to you the moron about programming should we? No let's not.

You can force changes on the Solidcoin network with code updates and people have to upgrade or your enforcer nodes shut them out of the network. That is what the enforcer nodes are there for, to "protect" the solidcoin blockchain from undesirables. Bitcoin has no such capability, they require the community support to make protocol changes. If the community doesn't use the new version, the changes cannot be forced on them by a single meglo-maniacal agent.

If a theoretical forceful change did harm the network then other people could easily resume the network from a prior point WITH NEW KEYS. It's hilarious to think that you believe RealSolid could scam other people and simultaneously claim a license hold over the project! hint: it's only one or the other.

Bitcoin devs could easily change whatever they wanted and force the people that matter onto that route. You believing otherwise is what we call delusion.

The Soiledcoin "devs" (and I used that word loosely) are on the same page because you hold all the keys and they know it. They have 1.2 million coins, they just keep their mouths shut and wait for the pump and hope they get in on the dump. No shit they don't disagree with anything you say. Plus, anyone who ever disagreed with you has already been run off anyway.

Look what you did there you made a pun, "soiled coin devs use it loosely". Real mature kid. Idiots like you with the brain the size of a pea and the damaged self image of columbine loner are what is helping bring Bitcoin down. Thanks for making our job easier.
And the 12 million spendable coins hovering over everyone's heads is whats holding Solidcoin back...

No matter how you slice it, there are 12 million coins that can be used at any time to scam the entire user base.

I guess the answer is:

Quote
2) He's stupid and chooses to do the implementation this way and not realize that 12 million pre-mined coins will turn off a lot of users.

He thinks that this solution is better because it doesn't require a code change to eliminate the 10 trusted nodes when they are no longer needed. Oh no! Not a code change. There's no way RealSolid can force that on everyone!
645  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Does RealSolid manipulate the vote that could make him step down? on: February 20, 2012, 08:16:16 AM
What we can trust is RealSolid is a good coder, has developed custom solutions...

LOL. I don't even know who I'm talking to anymore. CoinHunter is either lying now and lying before when he claimed he was RealSolid. I'd rather not deal with liars.
646  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Does RealSolid manipulate the vote that could make him step down? on: February 20, 2012, 04:42:45 AM
Coinhunter I still don't get why the 12 million coins are needed to protect the network.

Can you please explain it to me in explicable detail?

I think you owe me at-least that much.

P.S This is a serious question RS. Don't dodge it like you always do.

Lets do this 1-1 WHY ARE THE 12 MILLION COINS NEEDED TO PROTECT THE NETWORK?

LOL, FlipPro. You already know that there's no reason he needs 12 million coins to protect the network. Since it's just hardcoded into the system, he could have easily hardcoded 10 private keys into the software that can act as the trusted nodes without needing 1.2 million coins each. It will just be a special case for those 10 special trusted nodes until a real account has 1 million sc in it. So you won't get a straightforward answer from RealSolid/CoinHunter (although these 2 personalities seems to have split recently!), because it means one of three things:

1) He's incompetent and can't figure out that he can special case those 10 trusted nodes for the time being.

2) He's stupid and chooses to do the implementation this way and not realize that 12 million pre-mined coins will turn off a lot of users.

3) He's a scammer and plan to steal 12 millions coins when the time is right.

So yeah, good luck getting RS/CH to respond to your very valid question.

I talked to Ahimoth about his specs. Here they are:

Quote
Mainboard: MSI 890FXA-GD70
Processor: AMD Sempron 140
Memory: 2x1GB Corsair DDR3 1333mhz
GPUs: 4x XFX 6950 1GB stock shaders, watercooled, and clocked at 1000mhz core and 1250mhz memory
Power: Corsair AX1200

Hashspeeds:
LTC - 998kh/s (reaper)
BTC - 1624mh/s (cgminer)

Wattage (at the wall):
LTC - 920 watts average
BTC - 950 watts average

The machine makes 1.35 btc every day mining bitcoins.
And it makes 630 ltc every day mining litecoins. At the .0024 exchange rate, that comes out to be 1.51 btc.
So it makes about 10% more mining litecoins as oppose to bitcoins.
648  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Thread about GPU-mining and Litecoin on: February 17, 2012, 08:03:52 PM
@Coblee

There's no GPU miner for LTC and they know it. Nothing more than FUD and if Ahimoth wants to throw his reputation on a grenade for Coinhunter then so be it.

Think about it, as bad as Coinhunter despises you  and envies Litecoin, do you think for a second he would sit on a GPU miner that would devestate it? Not a chance.

~BCX~

I've talked to mtrlt about. CoinHunter doesn't control him. And he's in it just for profit. He's making more money with his GPUs mining litecoin than bitcoin. So he won't release it without being compensated somehow.

It's true that this could all be FUD, but I respect Ahimoth enough to believe that he wouldn't be lying about this just to spread FUD.
649  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Thread about GPU-mining and Litecoin on: February 17, 2012, 07:52:27 PM
Please dial it down everyone. Ahimoth and mtrlt, if you can make a video that's great. And can you give me more details on hashrate and which video cards?
650  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Thread about GPU-mining and Litecoin on: February 17, 2012, 05:54:21 AM
Viper's solution is not without merit. It would make it harder to 51% a coin in the earpy stages because you'd need both a bitcoin farm and a botnet.

653  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Thread about GPU-mining and Litecoin on: February 17, 2012, 01:34:42 AM
The original purpose of Litecoin is to be a CPU coin where anybody with their computer can mine litecoins. What has happened with Bitcoin is that GPU mining on bitcoin was a lot more efficient, so a lot of people starting mining bitcoins with GPUs. This pumped up the difficulty and made CPU mining unprofitable and therefore pointless. I don't want this to happen to Litecoin and I think most people agree with me on this.

Recently, there has been some rumors that mtrlt has modified his GPU miner to work with Litecoin. And he claims to have been able to create a GPU miner that outperforms CPU miner by a lot. Of course, all this could be FUD thrown at Litecoin by Solidcoin supporters. But I have talked to mtrlt about this and he seems genuine. So I'd like to get to the bottom of this.

Here's what I'd like to accomplish:
1) Figure out if GPU mining litecoins is indeed more efficient. And if so how much better is it.
2) Do we want to switch to a new hashing algorithm that is more GPU-hostile.
3) If we do want to switch, there are a ton of other questions. Can we modify scrypt params or do we need something totally different. How far away do we do the algorithm switch? How do we get miners/pools/clients ready for the switch so that there's no downtime?

Everyone, please refrain from SolidCoin bashing in this thread. And SolidCoin supporters, please refrain from posting unless you have something constructive to say. Thanks.

I'd be interested in getting one. Are you able to ship to Australia? Smiley

Sorry, I don't plan to ship any more of these. If you want them, contact casascius. I think he can make some for you.
655  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Physical Litecoins on: February 16, 2012, 12:31:56 AM
It was sent out on Monday. Sorry for the delay. I gave each one of you an extra physical litecoin due to the extra wait. Let me know if you don't get it by next week.

I have 2 Icarus boards and after mining for a while, the stats start to look weird:

Code:
              Worker               │Accepted│Accepted│Stale shares│Invalid shares│Current│ Average │Temperature│Effi- │   Current                                            
                name                │  jobs  │ shares │ (rejected) │ (K not zero) │MHash/s│ MHash/s │(degrees C)│ciency│     pool  
Icarus board on /dev/tty.usbserial  │    4389│    2195│   23 (1.0%)│      2 (0.1%)│ 379.70│   373.31│  Unknown  │ 94.7%│   Eclipse                                            
Icarus board on /dev/tty.usbserial20│    4459│    2272│   23 (1.0%)│      7 (0.3%)│ 379.36│129609.80│  Unknown  │  0.3%│   Eclipse                                            

The accepted shares are about the same, but the 2nd board is shwoing a wrong average mhash/s and efficiency. In the logs I do notice a that the 2nd board had timed out a few times. TheSeven, any ideas?
Looks like something goes wrong with the total MHash counter for that worker. No idea what though, I've had a quick look at that code and can't spot any obvious reason for this. I also can't reproduce it by deliberately causing communication problems with the board.

This keeps happening to me. Let me know how I can help you fix this. I am running the latest code.
657  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Does RealSolid manipulate the vote that could make him step down? on: February 15, 2012, 07:07:11 PM
I totally have no proof except that he should be able to do this.. but the numbers look obvious: 52 aprove of him, 7 are against him (as of 2/15/2012 19:16CET). If this was a real Vote over there (http://solidcointalk.org/topic/186-do-you-want-realsolid-to-be-lead-developer/) we would see reversed figures.
It's selection bias, look it up. Those who don't approve of the current leaders, have never registered on the forum or left to do something more useful with their life.

Or were banned before the vote took place and never bothered to register another account.

Thanks everyone for helping to make Litecoin succeed.

Since I love poker and know python, let me know how I can help with the LTC poker site.
659  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: artforz and coblee gpu mining litecoin since the start? on: February 15, 2012, 10:20:37 AM
As far as I'm aware in my last talks with mtrlt the litecoin GPU miner is only 10-20x faster than CPUs. Which is less compared to a GPU mining bitcoin 100x faster than a CPU.

From what I gather (assuming the GPU miner is legit), it performs better than CPU per watt by a small amount. In other words, it's 10-20x faster than CPUs but also uses almost 10-20x more electricity. So even if the miner is released, it won't kill CPU mining like what happened with bitcoins. And currently, it's much more profitable to use your GPUs to mine bitcoins instead of litecoins with the current prices.

It's quite likely the "dark pool" everyone was talking about isn't actually a botnet, just 10-20 highend GPUs mining it hard. No proof on that claim, just my opinion.

So why would you assume that the unknown miners are GPU miners instead of a botnet? Wouldn't they be more profitable mining bitcoins instead?
