Anyone ignorant enough to leave coins there after the June 2011 "Hack" deserves no sympathy.

Couldn't find the full thing, but this outlines how he can be replaced and the people who can vote on it.

Can anyone link to the other one which is signed and all instead of this draft.


Here you go.

If you're only shooting to make 3-5 Million USD that should be pretty simple.

Get a hold of a coin coder called r3wt aka Hydroponica.

He's done it a few times over.

"Dead" coins can be extremely lucrative. I made probably at least half my bitcoins simply by CPU-mining BBQcoin for a year or so while it was out of the public eye then selling it before it got on an exchange to people who wanted to revive it and get it onto an exchange. So I didn't even have to wait for it to get (back?) onto an exchange in order to rake in hundreds of bitcoins for a year of devoting one CPU-core to it.

So yeah there are fortunes to be made on coins so "dead" that you don't even need a GPU to mine them. Devote a CPU core each to them while preparing a shiny new version, hopefully with merged mining as a subchain included so that, unlike BBQcoin, it need not die again as soon as it comes back into the public eye due to rape and pillage miners who perforce have to jump from coin to coin because coins are so seldom able to all be mined at once with merged mining; and wait for some idiot to come along with a GPU driving the electricity costs up for everyone by needlessly driving the difficulty up instead of quietly mining with just a CPU core like everyone else; at that point go public with the shiny new version, having hopefully accumulated far far more coins than the idiot who prematurely unleashed a GPU on it will make now that he "forced" you to go public so (s)he now has to compete with gosh knows how many other GPU-miners or even ASIC-miners instead of co-operating quielty with the CPU-mining/dev team...

EDIT: Lolcust IS Art? Wow I didn't know that. Lolcust always gave the impression of not being any kind of coder type at all.



Lolcust, not a coder, are you effen serious???

I think your memory is going bad on you Mate.

Instead of jumping on the "lets make yet another shitcoin" bandwagon how about instead a team of legends and heroes sets out to update, in chronological order by launch date, all the existing coins, fix all their bugs, see to it all relevant BIPs are applied and so on?

Since a given size/efficiency of team would have some given finite number of coins they could bring up to date before the oldest is out of date again, this approach will probably only be able to deal wit the first so many months or years worth of coins before finding it needs to forget the more-recent ones for now and go back to the start again, maybe this time being able tp update more coins in less time.

So maybe eventually, especially if the team grows, each time through the chronological list they would be able to update more coins before the oldest needs updating again.

Hopefully they will be unlikely to get so fast at this that shitcoins being launched today will ever be reached, but who cares about shitcoins being launched today when there are so many coins launched years ago that not only have not been kept up to date but also have not even been worked on at all but the "developers" (as they like apparently to call themselves) who are ptting out shitcoins today.

Consider for example Tenebrix and Fairbrix, the first and second scrypt coins. Even by the time the third scrypt coin, Litecoin, came out we already were seeing this bullshit of people putting out some new piece of crap of their own instead of fixing the piece of crap the end-users were already invested into.

This Coblee fellow some of you seem to like is actually one of the early perpetrators of spamming out a new scam instead of fixing the ones end-users were already using.

Instead of updating the (really old, horrible) code of Tenebrix and Fairbrix, he just stole their idea and rendered a clone based on newer code (Litecoin), leaving the user-base already invested into the scrypt concept to rot.

Not a nice guy. Did anyone suspect he might just up and abandon Litecoin at some point? Seems like a no-brainer.

So, chronology. Somewhere there was a thread.

Bitcoin, namecoin, ixcoin, i0coin, tenebrix, fairbrix, was it? Or what, exactly? Lets get launch dates in sequence and see what real heroes of the people can accomplish...

Note that Tenebrix's pre-mine, which was the excuse for creating fairbrix and naming it fair, is still out there, so might well be available for bounties for getting Tenebrix out of the stoneage.

-MarkM-



Lolcust aka ArtForz created Tenebrix as an experiment only.

Coblee created Fairbrix 1 and Fairbrix 2 and then created Litecoin.

Kind of hard to steal your own code.

Like Tenebrix, Both Fairbrix chains were experiments only.

Art still holds about 7.7 million Tenebrix.

Why is it that Vegans care so much about saving animals from being eaten but hate people so much?


@Crestington

The correct question is....

If Vegans love animals so much then why do they eat all of their food?


Back on topic

So what's the progress on this legends coin?


~BCX~




Are your tracking pixels legendary aswell ?

How many have abandoned cryptos thanks to assholes like you ?

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=341146.0

@Psy

Hella good catch mate.

One of my fav all time tricks.

Just glad they aren't that smart in the alt section LOL


~BCX~


That wasn't "Legendary" per se it was just a cool little trick that worked like a charm.

I didn't do anything illegal, nefarious or unethical as that is not in the spirit of "crypto"

But I was able to tie IP's listed in many clients peer list to a visit on a pic I hosted here in Bitcointalk before the image proxy.

Tracking pixels on images hosted on my server is 100% legal.

Just harmless research back in 2010/2011 Mate and nothing more.

I saw that within hours of it being posted.

I am seeing this theymos as the high lord of bitcoin discussions round here. Many say that theymos has this or that opinion.

What is theymos's opinion on altcoins?

Is there a successor to theymos?, should heaven forbid, something happen to him.

Are there other royal bitcoin families seeking to take the iron throne of btt and reddit bitcoin?

And what is your opinion of how theymos treats his subjects?

Just when you think you've heard it all.

That is the best nugget from a Monero thread I've seen in along time.

I'm in the process of writing a research paper for my night school in regard to cryptocurrencies, their capacity to be an alternative to the fiat banking paradigm and the various pros and cons of anonymity and fungibility.


Creative Writing and Fiction were also one of my favorite classes in school.

Good luck!

Added: The fact that this is a blatant Monero spam thread wasn't missed. One of the better ones I might add.

Nothing wrong with a good infomercial. Just imagine what Tony Robins could do with XMR between 11pm and 1am on the TV.

Seriously, what newbie user of crypto is going to wade through hundreds of pages of old threads trying to find the good oil on all the alt coins available now? None, it's just too hard now so they all start from the latest posts and start trying to piece stuff together. There's just too many coins now to track, so these 'infomercial' threads are actually very useful.

Keep up the good work monerians Smiley



Just one problem.

Mprep tends to trashcan Infomercial threads.

Well it's been a couple of months.  
  
Things are slow on the Monero development front, but the price has remained stable.  
  
I'm still plugging along, buying what Monero I can with my extra income and encouraging crypto-enthusaists to do the same.  In an image that will surely be historic one day, we sit in 6th place behind a few unworthy opponents with some shining exceptions:  
  
 
  



Bragging about being in sixth place crypto marketwise is equivalent to bragging about your site ranking top of page 8 in the Google index.
