The Chinese are taking notice of Ardor!

It's good that the Chinese are noticing it. The new ardorplatform website is only in English at the moment. If it had a Chinese version it could encourage greater adoption of Ardor by Chinese people. If they hear about it on wanbizu and want more information from ardorplatform.org they have to go through Google translate until there's a Chinese version of ardorplatform.org.

Is there a minimum amount of nxt a wallet must hold before it gets get Ardor tokens for the new project? Do wallets with 0.1 nxt get Ardor tokens or do they need to hold more nxt for that?

I read it's a 1:1 swap, but surely if there's only dust in a wallet that's less than the fee needed to send coins then that wallet won't get any Ardor tokens.


6. For the rest: yes, a 1:1 swap and you are in.

This is breaking down and BFX still does "investigate a platform issue"... Grrr... Angry

PS. Looks like it's holding for now, we'll see tomorrow morning...

BFX has investigated the platform issue, discovered an internal network issue, and is now working on recovering from it. The last issue was solved in about an hour. This one's taking a little longer to solve but BFX will probably be back online soon.

The price is breaking back up again.

I can't decide on what the price will do without more details.

Is there a minimum amount of nxt a wallet must hold before it gets get credit for the new project? Do wallets with 0.1 nxt get credit or do they need to hold more nxt for that?

WTF only BTC880 on Finex till $700  Huh and BTC785 till $850 where did the order book go?

trade has been halted for about 10m


no news yet....


pray china doesnt do anything in the meantime.

Bitfinex twitter: "We are experiencing platform issues. We are investigating and will resume normal operations as soon as possible."


Did the CEO of bitcoin just turn off bitcoin?

I thought that bitcoin could not be turned off?

 Wink


Edit:

Here, I found this statement from Bitfinex:

"Trading has been paused while we investigate an infrastructure issue impacting the trading engine. The issue does not involve funds or system security. We will resume normal operations as soon as possible.?

I noticed crazy walls getting put up in both directions immediately before trading halted. They looked like the walls on OKcoin where all you get is two almost vertical lines with no gap in-between them. I felt something was wrong because walls like that don't happen on bitfinex.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: ETH hardfork incoming. on: June 20, 2016, 08:08:44 PM
If I am a miner, I will support the soft fork and freeze the stolen funds. If the DAO holders offer us 50% of the stolen funds, we will do a hard fork.

If the miners can benefit from the hacking like this and the hacker does not benefit, he may think twice before his next hacking.

Other miners will mine more profitably by accepting his offer and thus have a greater hashrate.

Checkmate. Your vote has been economically overridden.

Andreas and Emin getting frantic and grasping for straws:

https://twitter.com/el33th4xor/status/744769932739624960

90% of the miners accepts the soft fork. You can see in the http://ethpool.org/stats/votes. But the result is not final yet.

Try again to understand what I wrote.

The set of miners is open and unbounded. Anyone can decide to become a miner today and accept the hacker's more lucrative offer.

Isn't the hashing power each miner has more important than the number of miners who support a fork? If a miner with a GPU farm comprising 100 GPUs rejects the fork he could have 100 times more influence than a miner with one GPU.

Truecrypt was recommended by Snowden but the devs stopped working on it after he recommended it.

i thought Linux viruses were very rare because you need to give them privileges to do anything. I have not heard of tails yet.

I think planet is dead... no listing on C-CEX, nobody is interesting in it. I have a few coins, pitty.

be patient

I don't think it will get on another exchange now.

Community will be there once we see that something is actually happening. We currently have nothing, not even twitter.
I did try to help out, but Dev looked like you had no interest to make it to a success, anyway I sold almost all my planet today what was still left.
Wish you all GL

Thanks for the person who bought up to 200+sat today

Same here. Gave 10k to the faucet and sold rest.
I can not be bothered with a coin where dev cant even do as much as open a twitter account or anything.

So same from here, good luck to you all.

I'm out too, planetcoin's not going to take off without an active dev.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN]PLANETCOIN - SCRYPT - Trading on YOBIT/ALCUREX on: March 30, 2015, 07:16:07 PM
I had a talk with C-CEX, they will not add PLANET unless it is the highest coin in the voting list, so it is up to community to decide if they want to put some little amount in this games or let it die.

How much BTC will it take to solidly out PLANET in first?

0.16 BTC and then it will be number 1 in the voting list on C-CEX.

What makes C-CEX better than Alcurex and YOBIT?

12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: IRC IMPERSONATION SCAMS on: March 30, 2015, 07:10:02 PM
There is a thread about a similar thing happening to digitalcoin. Here is the OP quoted.

Happened to Digitalcoin, Bittrex, and a few other coins from what I can follow so far.

Someone, or some group, is making the rounds on IRC with variations of trusted coin community members nicks and contacting people asking for coins (to pump, for some project, etc.) as a loan for a few hours.

In our specific case, someone used kenei (with capital i instead of L) to fraudulently obtain crypto property under false pretenses from our channel members (in arial font they look identical).

This is a Class H felony in the United States.

The funds are deposited directly to a Bittrex account, sold immediately for BTC and withdrawn before anyone realizes this is a scam. Bittrex seems unable to help us but is aware of the situation.

As a warning, I'd like to make sure everyone is (a) aware that this scam is going on, and (b) that members of our Digitalcoin Foundation will NEVER ask for any coins from any person as a loan

Be careful out there....it's easy to get caught up in this if you aren't paying attention. Verify before sending or doing anything. These people seem to know exactly who to impersonate and exactly who to contact that would be trustful of whom they are impersonating. They are even likely idling in your channel right now.

Not sure what else I can do other than warn people of this. Let me know if anyone has any ideas -- I take this personally as it was my name used in this fraudulent scheme.


13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] [IC] InvestCoin - first coin with stock market in wallet | Loan system on: March 16, 2015, 11:56:14 PM
Think and let me know. If you want to make it fair, of course... Otherwise I would not recommend to invest any BTC to newbie accounts. We saw enough scams.

The IPO address 14Kd3zY4WS8wX8NniBDGap2K71cGF5CS7B is still empty and it will probably stay empty until escrow is available.
14  Economy / Speculation / Re: The bears are losing their grip on: March 01, 2015, 03:51:29 PM
I dont think its the bears, its just simply returning to a reasonable price after the price was fraudulently manipulated to $1000+ by gox.

Its done this before when it crashed from $30 to $2.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: Public message to BTER on: February 15, 2015, 06:52:12 PM
I feel terrible for those who lost bitcoins, but if they return the alts it would be a good thing. I lost a few dollars worth of bitcoins there that I only deposited a few days ago. They were immediately moved to the cold wallet ater I sent them so I doubt I will ever get them back.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: In wallet trading almost finished by Griffith...watch this! on: February 15, 2015, 06:48:32 PM
How long will a trade take in this new wallet? What I don't like about trading in the NXT asset exchange is waiting ages for a trade to confirm. They say each confirmation should only take minutes, but in practice I found it sometimes takes half an hour for one cofirmation.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: For Dummies on: January 31, 2015, 04:39:19 PM

What is the downside of pre-mining? OneCoin has just started their closed source mining on Jan 20 and has already mined 550,000 of their own coins. They claim that this mining internal of their own network is only a way to make it "fair" for the network. They plan to mine the majority of their own coins prior to going public and are still not in an exchange.

Bottom line question: What is the best way for newbies to cut their teeth in cryptocurrency?

I don't know about others think about premining. For me, it creates a sense of feeling whereby there is an unfair advantage so it leads to a loss of confidence in the coin itself.

If the dev keeps all the premine for himself I agree it creates a sense of feeling whereby there is an unfair advantage. There are POS coins where the premine is distributed among many people, which seems OK to me, but that is not the case here.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Šogecoin on: January 31, 2015, 04:34:02 PM
I'm interested to see after the halving what would be the impact towards the coin price. And more interesting is when the 100 billion cap has been reached.

The miners still get a tiny amount to dump after the 100 billion cap but I'm hoping the price goes up afterwards. It's not a hard cap, technically the miners still get a tiny reward afterwards.
19  Economy / Speculation / Re: BTC holders are like that story of the boiling frog on: January 19, 2015, 03:49:47 PM
i hold more than 10, color me cultist

Will you hold them even if bitcoin fails? Is there a low price where you would sell?
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Paycoin (XPY) = Federal Reserve on: January 03, 2015, 01:11:15 AM
well i see paycoin is taking a massive crash course here in last 48 hours. I am not sure why seems like it went up good for some time then drop some to the 29 level and then took back off to 47 level. Now it is just like a dead fish in the water at 20 just doing nothing and nobody wanting it  Shocked

It bounced a few times on the way down. I think it will fall much further with more bounces.
