The first CryptoVoter shareholder-style blockchain votes will happen in approximately 48-72 hours when we reach Bitcoin-sCrypt block 333,333 (the "voting deadline block").  As of this writing, the current Bitcoin-sCrypt block is 332,510 so the voting deadline block for the first vote is 823 blocks away and should happen sometime between Oct. 02 and Oct.04, 2015.
 
The first vote is whether or not to replace the current Bitcoin-sCrypt logo and replace it through a logo contest.  This vote was set up as an initial test vote, as it is widely expected that the community will vote to replace the old logo.
 
We also created an infographic to show how easy it is to vote in just three steps:
 (1) Download CryptoVoter-BTCS voting client v.1.10.1
 (2) Launch the voting client and cast your vote before Bitcoin-sCrypt voting block deadline 333,333
 (3) Wait until block 333,333 has been solved and added to the blockchain before moving your coins
     (*) Vote results can be found by using the voting client, the voting website or by searching with a Bitcoin-sCrypt blockchain explorer.
 
Remember, for votes to count users must send coins to their voting address before the voting deadline block 333,333 and keep them there until that block has been solved and added to the blockchain.
 
We will announce final voting results after voting deadline block 333,333 has been solved, and collect feedback to tweak the second Bitcoin-sCrypt blockchain vote scheduled for October 16, 2015, and repeat the process for the first Bitcoin-core blockchain vote scheduled for October 23, 2015.
 
Thanks and we are excited about holding the first official CryptoVoter shareholder-style blockchain vote to decentralize development by giving users a vote in development issues.
 
An explanatory infographic follows.

Thx,

Smokeasy

86  Economy / Economics / Re: Why has bitcoin had success in China? on: September 30, 2015, 08:19:47 AM
One of the reasons bitcoin has been relatively successful in China is that the Chinese already have experience of using virtual currency, such as Q coins, which were introduced in 2002.

Q coins are issued by Tencent QQ an instant messaging software service company with more than 800 million active users that offers a variety of services, such as online social games, music, shopping and microblogging.

From my experience, when asking Chinese people for their email address, around four out of 10 have an address on the QQ server.

Q coins can be purchased via a bank, telephone or Q card at an official price of 1 yuan per coin, and can be used for purchasing Tencent services, such as electronic greeting cards and online games.

On top of this existing exposure to virtual currency is the fact that bitcoin gives an opportunity for people to move money out of China and transact with international merchants/customers. This is important as there is currently a 350,000 yuan (around $50,000) limit on overseas investment.

Chinese exchange platforms, such as OKCoin, BTCC and Huobi, allow trading without charging a fee, thus, using bitcoin is faster and cheaper compared to traditional money transfer methods, such as Western Union.

This is important for the millions of Chinese who study and work abroad.

Zennon Kapron, financial technology expert and owner of the Shanghai-based consultancy Kapronasia, told CoinDesk that China's main experimentation in the bitcoin space is in trading and the manufacture and operation of mining equipment. He argues that, with this being the focus, bitcoin is unlikely to cause a financial revolution in China.

According to Kapron, to work in China, bitcoin has to become accessible and useful for the masses in daily transactions. This might be challenging. Merchant fees in China are lower than in the West and platforms such as Alipay and WeChat/Tenpay dominate the mobile and non-bank payment market.

While this might be true for the mainland, in greater China, and Taiwan, in particular, bitcoin seems to have a really kicked off.

Not trying to stereotype, but Bitcoins are backed by hard math which some peope appreciate more than others.

Does anyone know how to get python 2.7 and python 3.4 to recieve data from blockchain. I want to recieve data specifically on my own address.


<-------------------------------------------------- HERE!
Any suggestions, ideas or complete code

This should get you going for locally doing it:

The link is Part 1 but Part 2 can be found at the bottom of the page.

We should make a list of all the confirmed females.

To what end?  A catalog where bitcoin men can pick and choose?


Indeed.  The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
89  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Need Help Mining on: September 30, 2015, 07:58:17 AM
Rent a miner and mine one of these pools:

Feathercoin https://ftc.theblocksfactory.com/
Vertcoin https://pool.verters.com/
Karmacoin https://www.multipool.us/
GroestlCoin https://grs.suprnova.cc/

Check http://www.coinwarz.com/ to see what coins are hot!
please suggest me some easy to mine and profitable coin that can be exchanged for bitcoin..i want to earn like 0.005BTC per day via mining

whatever "the" profitable coin is, is constantly changing so you need to keep up mining profitability calculators and could also use coin market cap type sites to quickly see trends.

Questions:  Is once-a-month voting too frequent or not frequent enough?  Should Bitcoin-sCrypt coordinate with Bitcoin-core re voting?

I thought voting every two weeks was too often.  Once a month might be ok but we should not vote just to vote.  We should have things worth voting for.

Besides the first set of votes, voting every other week would be too much.
92  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][BTCS][CRYPTOVOTER LAUNCH] Bitcoin-sCrypt | in techcrunch on: September 30, 2015, 05:23:59 AM
This mine is eagerly awaited

And the hashrate has jumped around a lot too.

Hi all,

Have put some DOT votes on https://www.cryptopia.co.nz/Home/Voting
I hope we get onto this exchange.

Cheers,

Mike

Very nice.  Thx Mike.

Forgot to answer second question.  Yes we should coordinate with Bitcoin core because it could give Bitcoin Scrypt more publicity.

It could.

How about doing a pre-voting for a few names as a poll using this thread and take the finalists to the actual block-chain based vote?

BTW- I have 200 BTCs buried on Minpal for 18 months now (Blast from the past Smiley)
http://45.55.216.92:3001/tx/0f03ed6ff1c8bb373d0ccb272d041c5fea2f60e8c3d5b756d5dbd0119e7775b0


That's a good idea.  We will look into a pre-poll.

hello smokeasy, how to be:
Bitcoin Scrypt (BTCS) or correct name be Bitcoin sCrypt (BTCS)?

on site http://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/bitcoin-scrypt/ full coin name is Bitcoin Scrypt...

It is the same?

It is mostly referred to as Bitcoin sCrypt but it is not required and some refer to it as Bitcoin Scrypt. 
97  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][BTCS][CRYPTOVOTER LAUNCH] Bitcoin-sCrypt | in techcrunch on: September 29, 2015, 05:31:58 AM
Vote to get Bitcoin-sCrypt listed on Cryptopia.  There are over 100 coins listed for voting and Bitcoin-sCrypt is one of the top coins (#1 in weekly user votes).  We only get one user vote per day so log in and vote when you get a chance.

Also, I agree with the idea but I think most people would want one person = one vote instead of your system?

tbh, after learning how it works most people support the idea of one coin = one vote instead of one person = one vote.

We chose the one coin = one vote for two important reasons:
1.  We believe that those who have a bigger stake in the outcome should have a bigger voice in any decision, just like shareholders in a corporation.
2.  Creating a one person = one vote voting system defeats the purpose and technology behind decentralization because a trusted-third-party is required to make sure that one person get one, and only one, vote, which would inherently centralize the voting.



Thanks for answering questions.

I see you guys make the Bitcoin Scrypt votes before the Bitcoin votes.  The vote about changing Bitcoin Scrypt coin name before Bitcoin could be good for Bitcoin Scrypt.

I just sent you PM.

Got it.  Just responded.  Thx for offer to help.

Interesting voting.  I think I understand it but have question.

I don't think it can but has your team evaluated if the voting can be manipulated like signature voting?

It cannot be manipulated like signature voting because voting coins must be confirmed in a voting address at the voting block deadline.  Since one coin cannot be in two places at the same time, users cannot manipulate voting.

Make sense?
