961  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Blockchain with high speed and zero transfer fee on: January 11, 2018, 07:28:23 PM
As far as i know, blockchain don't have capability to do that since all blockchain based cryptocurrency have block generation time to prevent double-spending (unless the merchant/receiver accept 0-conf) and fee is needed to combat spam which could bloat the blockchain itself (even though some cryptocurrency which block isn't full still allow zero tx fee).

Unless you can find blockchain based cryptocurrency which allow zero tx fee and their block isn't full (which means 0-conf is safe), i suggest you to use DAG based cryptocurrency such as IOTA, byteball and RaiBlocks.
962  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: What GPU to choose? on: January 11, 2018, 07:11:50 PM
That depends on the algorithm on cryptocurrency that you will mine, but i wouldn't recommend mine with high-end GPU since the price/performance isn't that good with mid-end GPU unless you couldn't find mid-end GPU which have better price/performance.
But most cryptocurrency these days uses algorithm which better mined with AMD GPU, so i'd suggest AMD GPU if you're not sure which cryptocurrency you'll mine.
963  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: ICO - Getting Expensive than ever on: January 11, 2018, 07:00:08 PM
The key to solve the problem is research, especially since may people don't bother do research about the ICO that they're gonna invest or fooled by news/hyped.
Some basic stuff to research including :
1. Whitepaper. Most scam ICO usually have don't have or have bad quality whitepaper which can be spotted easily.
2. Roadmap.
3. Goal/Vision.
4. ICO's team.
5. How they promote. I've seen some obvious scam ICO which promote fast profit or return, and obviously it's fake.

But, even they have solid goal with competent team, doesn't mean the ICO will be success though. If those entrepreneurs don't bother to do research or don't want to take risk, they shouldn't invest in ICO.
964  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Why even holding your bitcoins? on: January 11, 2018, 05:54:08 PM
Only people who don't see bitcoin potential or future bitcoin plans who said that bitcoin is overhyped/overvalued/will die.
While it's true that many cryptocurrency have advance technology, bitcoin also have upcoming technology such as LN, MAST, Schnorr signature and other technology. Bitcoin also have biggest community with many active developer or development.
Also, most altcoin are bitcoin clone unless they have smart contract, DAG, Block-Lattices or other uniqueness which really useful.

But, investor don't care about cryptocurrency technology and only think about how much profit they could get anyway Tongue

Very interesting website, this could help many people help claim their free money and dump the useless altcoin forks Smiley
If you don't mind, maybe you should list wallet and exchanges for these forks so people have easier time claim and dump Roll Eyes
966  Other / Serious discussion / Re: The scaling solution on: January 10, 2018, 07:02:39 PM
Actually, we already have scaling solution such as SegWit which can solve current bitcoin problem if everyone use SegWit. Subhan Nadeem mentioned all pending transaction in mempool will be confirmed and mempool will empty if everyone use SegWit which is possible because we no longer use block size, but block weight and SegWit has lower weight size (about 75% lower compared with weight size in legacy address).
Bitcoin also have future scaling solution for long term such as LN, MAST, Schnorr signature and other proposal.

In short, we already have the solution, all we need to do is adopt the solutions.

Hi, i just wonder if you'll count messages in Development & Technical Discussion section in future?
Also, it would be great if there's spreadsheet with details such as total eligible posts/notes.
968  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Mining Rig Setup -- Problem with OEM Windows 10 Pro I bought off ebay on: January 10, 2018, 06:47:40 PM
You shouldn't buy any Microsoft product outside their official website/store since usually they sell either fake, hacked or OEM product which shouldn't be sold to regular customer.

I strongly advice you to use Linux distro if you only use your PC for mining. Furthermore, there are many Linux distro which specialized for cryptocurrency (such as Simple Mining), user-friendly (or at least there's user-friendly guide/documentation) and obviously you don't need spend money for OS Smiley
969  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is Bitcoin Core, EVER going to release Lightning? Or Is Scaling Dead w/Inaction? on: January 10, 2018, 06:31:46 PM
Yet another bitcoiner who don't bother do research and blame Bitcoin Developer.
In case you don't know, LN is available now in Bitcoin network (not testnet), but only very few services such as TorGuard which use LN since LN isn't production ready. LN fees is extremely low, but the only problem is transaction fees when opening LN channel.
But i'm sure LN adoption is extremely slow just like SegWit and there aren't any newbie/user-friendly LN wallet Sad

SegWit also can reduce the problem, but SegWit adoption is very slow even though people know SegWit have lower weight and tx size which means they can pay lower fees and help reduce mempool/pending transaction.

970  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: BTC and XRP in your body on: January 10, 2018, 06:20:46 PM
As long the firmware/software/OS isn't 100% open-source, i won't use this kind of chip which planted in my body. Who knows if they have my private key, collect transaction history or their software isn't secure.
Furthermore, this chip will risks the owner and i'm sure process to remove the chip safely is complicated.
971  Other / Serious discussion / Re: How to end the "BTC Civil War" before it gets worse? on: January 10, 2018, 10:10:11 AM
There's nothing we can do as long as people have different ideas, opinion or agenda. But we can fix bitcoin problem by adopting/promoting SegWit and LN (yes, very few services use LN now).
Increasing block weight also needed since people don't want pay high fees to open LN channel and more people will adopt Bitcoin in future.
972  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Telegram bot that allows u to be notified then coin price reaches desired value on: January 10, 2018, 08:33:25 AM
Looks interesting, but i'd rather use Bitcoin Checker which notify you real time, can select exchange and have specific notification option.
But, it's great for those who use Telegram Smiley
973  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Will there ever be an android miner? on: January 09, 2018, 07:18:52 PM
Theorically no, since android device's processing power is still small compared with desktop/server CPU/GPU and android device's price/performance is nothing compared with desktop/server. But, you can find mining application in Google Play Store even though everyone knows it's not profitable and will break your android device quickly.

However, it's possible and could be profitable if what you want is mining with ARM-based SoC which is more power efficient even thought the price/performance isn't that good.
974  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Harvard Professors Predict Bitcoin Collapse Due to Government Regulation on: January 09, 2018, 07:00:12 PM
Government only can disrupt bitcoin adoption, usage and popularity by ban/regulate bitcoin. Even if they ban/block all bitcoin exchange, services and websites, Bitcoin network still can run properly and some bitcoiners will move to dark net or decentralized exchange.
Maybe they're predict bitcoin price, not bitcoin itself Roll Eyes
975  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Anyone whose own some fair amount of bitcoins should also own a mining machine on: January 09, 2018, 06:54:41 PM
I totally disagree as long as bitcoin only can be mined with ASIC which isn't easy to obtain and usually expensive/low on stock.

But if mining algorithm changed to algorithm which only can be mined with CPU or GPU don't have much advantage compared with CPU, then i agree that people who have decent amount of bitcoin should have their own mining devices and run full nodes. And maybe one-cpu-one-vote idea could be realized.

Also, there's no correlation between higher hashrate or dominated mining with lots of unconfirmed transaction and high fees. Only SegWit/LN adoption, increase block weight and future proposal such as Schnorr signature which can solve unconfirmed transaction, high fees and smaller transaction size.
976  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: BTC must split into smaller units to survive on: January 09, 2018, 06:45:12 PM
That would make lots of confusion and extra works, i'd suggest everyone use mBTC (milli Bitcoin) or bits instead. Some altcoin such as Byteball already use matrix size for their coins anyway.
Furthermore, it's easier to see 1 mBTC or 1000 bits than 0.001BTC
977  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: A service to pay with bitcoin without a wallet on: January 08, 2018, 06:34:05 PM
I doubt there are any services which can offer what you need, but most services/business which accept BTC usually also accept Fiat. Even if such services exist, i'm sure the fee is big, so i think it's better to ask services/business if they also accept Fiat.
978  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Duecoin: Why You Need To Adopt It on: January 08, 2018, 06:27:47 PM
Looks shady and your explanation is extremely vague/don't have real meaning. Also SHA-256 isn't the most secure cryptographic hash function and what you offer (the technology) is outdated.
979  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Will TRENDIT be a famous social network ? on: January 08, 2018, 03:13:56 PM
Honestly, i think it's similar with STEEM/Steemit which already gain huge members and in top 50 based on market cap. But, STEEM/Steemit focus on blog/article and Trendit focus on social media.
I think it's a bit shady since their white paper don't have any technical explanation about how their social media works, but regardless it's interesting.
980  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: BitcoinWiki.org online encyclopedia about cryptocurrencies and blockchain on: January 08, 2018, 03:06:38 PM
Website looks nice and up-to-date with newest/upcoming bitcoin technology, but looks like some of the articles comes from https://en.bitcoin.it/ which is similar with your website. Is it mirror of that website?
Regardless, it's good website. But i suggest you to make the source more clear.
