1  Economy / Economics / Re: Bitcoin is not a bubble on: April 15, 2015, 06:23:19 AM
A simple answer is marketing and maturity.

When a huge corporation officially backs Bitcoin and publicly makes it obvious that Bitcoin is a big player (for example, placing a Bitcoin symbol or "Bitcoin accepted here" banner on the main site or checkout area), I have no doubt it will become way more publicized and used than it is now. I'm annoyed by companies saying they support Bitcoin, but it ends up being something that's just left hidden someplace that no one can seem to find. Just look at sites like Newegg (I think they support Bitcoin? I'm not even sure. Maybe, it was just allowed once at a promotion.). If only they place the Bitcoin amount along with the USD, just imagine the amount of interest generated for Bitcoin. People will then find out through their research or through other people including friends and family who did their research or got their info somewhere else that there are a load of benefits to using Bitcoin. Three particular attractive benefits are instant transactions, very low fees, and immediate and easy usage.

For most people, Bitcoin is interesting, but it's boring, and no one really cares for it. People are comfortable already using cash and their credit cards. Why would they even consider this when they are already happy using what they already have? The way to break this mindset is to make it the next hip thing. That means famous youtubers and large companies promoting it as well as respected and known writers/columnists writing big and continuous stories for it. By doing this, people will begin to recognize and accept the benefits it provides over fiat money.

Bitcoin shows that it is not yet mature enough. It seems most people who hear of Bitcoin read stories about how someone hacked and stole a large amount of Bitcoin that is worth thousands of dollars. People don't yet trust it because it hasn't been around long enough and hasn't really been seriously supported by big players. Everyone is comfortable using fiat money because they have been exposed to it their entire lives. They trust it and feel comfortable around it. National currencies have been around for generations. It's their way of life.
2  Economy / Economics / Re: Is Bitcoin Money or Currency on: April 15, 2015, 05:46:01 AM
Bitcoin is a form of money, just like the USD, that can be used to exchange for things like goods and products. The difference is that currencies like the USD is affiliated to a particular state (for USD, it would be the United States), while Bitcoin has no official affiliation to a particular state. Bitcoin is in the family of digital currency or more appropriately crypto-currency that is controlled by cryptography, allowing it to be untouched and unregulated by a particular political or financial entity.

So yes, Bitcoin is a currency which is a form of money.

@meowball I appreciate all the work you have put in thus far, and I hope we do see the web wallet / hypergg fully operational sometime soon.

Can the HYPERGG with the game servers go back up soon? That was a nice service.

Also please post the link here of the GitHub with the open source HYPER projects on it so everyone can see what is there.

I really appreciate your contributions to the community meowball!

Yes, that is the plan!

The HYPERGG site that shows the live statuses of the various game servers will be back up soon. The plan is for it to be up by the end of the weekend. I will be making some changes before it is re-deployed. I will also re-deploy the simplehyper.info offline paper wallet as well.

The open source projects other than simplehyper.info have been discontinued due to lack of activity. I will be re-starting more open-source projects when I have more time or if more ppl are interested in helping out.

Everything looks excellent! I love everything that is happening right now.  Smiley The twitch stream is awesome, Ignatius!

OK well here is the first big announcement!

HYPER is working with the Coin2 dev team and is going to be integrated into their FPS shooter game Chain of Conflict they are developing from scratch.

You can learn more about Coin2 and their game here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=824499.0

And you can see their indiegogo campaign here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/chain-of-conflict

There is much more to this partnership to be announced soon!

Glad to be working with the HYPER team, we are also looking for more Unity3D developers as well if anyone is experienced in that area. Can't pay much(reason for the crowd funding for the game) but can offer a percentage of the profits on a weekly basis. I'm gonna try to design a logo to represent the business partnership when there is a joint effort happening between the 2 dev teams, the original logos will be kept in tact for use in all other areas.

HYPERfuture, care to say a few words on our thread.



KingArbinV is thinking of paying Unity developers 5% of all monthly profits of the game as a reward for helping with the dev work.

If you are a Unity developer contact KingArbinV. This could become highly lucrative when the game is more popular.

This is a pre announcement of our partnership really. We will be making a more official announcement with a logo and more details soon!



Wow, this is pretty terrific! I love the initiative to get HYPER into more games. The game concept looks promising. I also love the text-based game screenshots from CryptoDatabase. As someone who have worked with Unity and alongside designers, artists, and musicians, I have a soft spot for game developers. Great job!

I also have some important news for everyone. See below:

The team behind the development for the anonymous web wallet have decided to put the project and any further announcements on hold for an indefinite time. Along with full-time jobs and other commitments, just two people without much free time working on this rather complex application is very tedious. I know for me, being part of the HYPER team is a passion of mine. I'm sure many of you share the same sentiment. This project is not a make-and-scrap project. It's a project that's in it for the long haul. What motivates me is what I believe HYPER can become and not so much on any profits (if any) that can be made.

We have come a very long way and learned a lot. While working on the app, things got pretty wild with the codebase and stylesheets. So, we will be starting a complete rewrite of the application using the best practices and a professional workflow. With just two of us working on this atm, we hope to bring the web wallet to you as soon as possible. But, I can't and will not make any promises (or make any big reveals) until I am sure that we can deliver. I will keep you all posted. I highly encourage any developers to join the HYPER team and help build the HYPER infrastructure. We seem to be lacking devs. I can't work on the open source projects (on top of the web wallet) by myself. There are many exciting projects that can be done for HYPER. I have the utmost respect for passionate devs who do what they do because they are passionate about their craft. If you are a dev, please message HYPERfuture and/or myself about what you can do to help. Here are a few selected screenshots from the latest private test app running. Thanks everyone!

When will Beta be ready? Or can I join close-beta? I am excited to be part of the Hyper community. I have been tracking this posts since 2014 yet I dont have a Hyper wallet.

It will be ready soon. I have a huge list of people who are interested in testing, and I put you on the list. It's getting really close. The only other person helping me with the development through design is away in another country at the moment. I may be able to release a testing version of the web wallet for internal transactions shortly. Just have to finish up a few issues. There are actually two separate applications that work in conjuction with each other. Wink Thanks for being patient!

Great! Here's my personal email in case you need it, intechplusplus@gmail.com.
I'm more interested in APIs to accept Hyper for web application. Any updates on APIs?
Why not just use normal wallet API?

There is nothing wrong with using the native wallet API via RPC. However, there are benefits to using the web wallet's API. Three reasons being better and easier usability, 0 txn fees when sending/receiving HYPER with other users, and obfuscation of external transactions. The API is in the timeline. I'll let you know more details as it gets started.

Also, the hypergg.com and simplehyper.info websites are currently down. I will put them back up with changes once the web wallet test version is ready which I hope will be ready within a month.

Great profile picture a HYPER fan has on twitter and wanted to share:



Fantastic


Haha nice! Glad to see you again HYPERfuture!

The web wallet development has been in a little bit of a stall because I have been very busy with some other things. I completely understand where HYPERfuture is coming from. Life can get quite busy.  Cry

I will release an update with the web wallet soon! By the way, if there are any devs out there, you should join the HYPER open-source github organization. Just PM and I can add you. There are a lot of great potential HYPER projects. If you want to flex your skills or just learn development, this may be a good opportunity for you.

Instead of waiting for the hyper multipool to auto convert to HYPER, is it easier (although more time consuming) Just to send to the bittrex wallets and then convert from there?

Absolutely clueless on how it works.

Help?

Yeah, you can do that if you want. I am guessing the multipool using an exchange like bittrex behind the scenes to convert your mined coins into HYPER. I'm not sure if doing the exchange manually is "easier (although more time consuming)". After all, you are proposing the manual exchange method to speed up the conversion in the first place. I would describe it as opposite. It's probably not as easy but less time consuming than waiting for the multipool to auto-convert. I haven't used the multipool, but it seems from what you are saying that the multipool takes a long time to convert your mined coins to HYPER.

Anyway, yes, you have the option to manually convert your coins into HYPER. I think it also gives you a little more power and flexibility to choose when and how much to convert to get the best bang from the market.

I reckon it just takes a while to find enough coins to convert to HYPER.

Yeah, that makes sense. I forgot that pools set a limit.  Wink

Do you have any idea what the limit is?

It depends on the pool. You can probably find the info somewhere on their site. If not, get a hold of the pool admins.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] HYPER ~ Game Currency ~ Sponsors Indie Games ~Many Games ~5% PoS on: March 06, 2015, 10:27:38 PM
Haha, yeah, I experienced a similar scenario kernik. I think the amount of coins in a single output definitely matters. I am actively experimenting, now that I have a better understanding of staking from ranlo.

I will separate my larger PoS wallets into multiple addresses, each with single outputs as not to clog things up, like you mentioned kernik. Let's see what happens..... Smiley

clovis

that's the way to clog everything really fast Smiley every input splits in about half everytime it stakes. The recommended way is to have everything in one address in ~200 size chunks

I would agree with kernik. Don't focus too much on trying to merge all your inputs together. Just make sure to do some housekeeping maybe once a month or so. If you constantly try to merge and send yourself coins daily or a weekly basis, I think you may lose out more than just leaving your coins alone from the fees. Also if you merge inputs that have good age, you will lose all that age when you have merged them, thus making you lose out even more. I would just honestly leave your coins alone. After every month or so, combine all your small HYPER with low age together.

Hey guys. I'm pretty new to both mining and PoS staking, so I'm not sure if I'm doing everything right with HYPER at the moment.

So I got a few hundred coins in my HYPER wallet. I encrypted the wallet, it restarted, then I clicked the "unlock wallet" button. Now it shows me a green lock in the bottom, if I hover the cursor over it it says "wallet is encrypted and currently unlocked". However, it's been 2 days now, and there has been zero activity - amount of coins is the same, and the "stake" field remains at 0.00
Now, am I doing something wrong, or does it simply take longer to stake the coins?  Huh

Thanks in advance for any help, it's very much appreciated!  Smiley

What's your "expected time to earn reward" and "your weight" say BigDaddy?

Hi BigDaddy0790,

Make sure to leave your wallet on to be eligible to receive stakes, although your coins do gain age even if your wallet is off. You should at least receive one stake daily (one stake per block/input of HYPER you own). Also if you have 1 HYPER, you may not earn a stake b/c you just don't have enough to increase your coin age over time to warrant a stake to "compete" with other stakers. If you leave your wallet off, make sure to turn on your wallet once every 30 days, since 30 days should guarantee a stake no matter how much HYPER you have. It's also possible you may need to combine your HYPERs into one block by sending all your HYPER to yourself, but that's something you probably don't need to do unless you've been receiving really tiny amount of HYPER at a time from someone.

Make sure to leave your wallet on and update the blockchain and see if you have received a stake after you are up-to-date with the blockchain. If that doesn't work, then we probably have a problem.

Thanks.

HYPER is still going strong! Keep hanging on!!



Awesome progress! Is the staking already working as well?

Thanks ranlo.

Staking works yes. It's part of an entirely different system that I'm holding off working on further until we finish the web application and all the logic associated with it (both front and back ends).

Cool glad to hear that you're still working on features for these servers it's great! And on the topic of new features I fear I have strayed from my personal philosophy of being a dedicated lurker and have strayed into the role of just a lurker and have not been so dedicated lately :O Is there any updates on all the things happening in the HYPER space? How's the whitepaper doing? The online wallet? And the game for mobile? These are just some of the many projects that I was looking very much forward to seeing the development of, and haven't seen much the few times that I have been on lately. Any

No major updates that I am aware of but I am out of the loop. I didn't know a mobile game was in the works, that would be an excellent addition.

Hello Ignatius!

Can you add else one cs 1.6 server, please? As cs go... Because my ping on this cs 1.6 server is very high, delay about 0.3-0.6 sec...
And cs go have multiple servers and I have to choose it where my ping is low Smiley

I will try to setup a 1.6 EU server and see how it goes. We are running low on server resources. I disabled a map you requested be disabled, but have not added all of the csgo maps you requested. If you can include the id number associated with any maps you would like added that would help. For example de_dust_se has an ID of 125498851. You can see a maps id in the URL when viewing the corresponding steam workshop page: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=125498851

Monthly Blitz ending in ~2 hours.

EU CS 1.6: 84.200.17.247:47045

meowballs can you please add that to the hypergg, as well as
84.200.17.247:27045
167.160.36.188:57019
167.160.36.188:57015

Thanks 

I will be posting some new screenshots shortly.  Smiley

@Ignatius, I will add those in as soon as I can. What games are the last 3 servers?

I've been playing "hyperzanda" (after going through the zandagort tutorial) and... what a ginormous waste of my time and life! Angry It seems
I can't get any hyper by first making some sort of "deposit" (spending money)  - It looks like all hyper games are set up this way! You have to fork-up
cash first (which probably goes to the devs) before you can "start playing" which means hyper is a RIP-OFF/SCAM coin! I can't believe so many people (including myself) fell/support for this con!

Quite an accusation, considering the success of HYPER thus far....

@CryptoGelus, I think you are jumping the gun here. To my understanding, there is only one dev that is working on hyperzanda, and I haven't even met or talked with that person. I'm not sure what the state of that particular game is. But to assume that the money that you put in goes to the devs is a complete and utter false accusation. As a dev myself, I haven't earned any HYPER from that game or any other game. I encourage you to discuss this issue you had in a healthy manner. Feel free to message HYPERfuture. He is away at the moment, but when he is back, he should be able to work it out with you. You are also welcome to PM me anytime with any questions you have.

I recommend that you take a look at the following:
1) Hasty generalization - the act of generalizing something based on one's limited experience and viewpoint
2) Negativity bias - the impact of one's negative experience being much greater than one's positive experience
3) Confirmation bias - the tendency to find information that confirms one's beliefs

I'm not sure what HYPER games you've played (I'd like to know what they were besides hyperzanda), but please give me a PM, and we can talk about this. Although I have no control over hyperzanda nor do I have access to its sourcecode, I can do my best to answer your questions or just talk about anything until HYPERfuture comes back. Thanks!

Alteast you could tell people the truth, that you disabled Rust server and are not planning resuming it what so ever.

Due fact that there were always delays.

The Rust server has been down for some time. This is a bit odd. I would think Falc0n would let the community know that the server is offline. Falc0n manages the Rust server and the payouts. When Falc0n gets back, I'm sure he will be able to explain.


I missed smth or deposits still dont work at http://hyperpoker.pw/?

After clicking on "My wallet" i see this message:
"ERROR Deposit Temporary disabled"

and at the top of the site there is a message:
"The Daemon for the crypto currency is not running, please contact admin!"

Maser0, the dev of Hyperpoker, is currently updating the site from the last time we talked. If you go to the registration page, you will notice that registration has been disabled. I'm not sure where he is at the moment.

Thanks for that.  

Since the last time we communicated the scope of the project has changed greatly although the core remains the same: 'an indiegogo clone integrated with CC'.  
I'm in discussion with one of the exchanges about a special relationship, if that goes anywhere they would be pulled into the CC integration conversation.  Aside from that there are very many customizations (not indicated above) in the plans that, depending on time and costs, would be part of the end product.  

I know you are extremely busy and that your schedule is packed, however as I told HYPERfuture I will certainly invite you to bid the project and give you preference for the project.  The preference would be in the form of a 'right of first refusal' -- if someone has a materially more attractive bid then yours you would be given the opportunity to match it, essentially if all things are equal you would get the contract.  

Nevertheless, we are a ways off from that, we have the registrations and qualifiers to graduate through, somewhere during the CF campaign a budget will be finalized then bids accepted.

Sounds good!


HYPERfuture can still always recruit anyone,
after all this is meant to be a joint effort thing

I completely agree, Small. I meant exactly what you just wrote. I'm sure HYPERfuture has ideas of other members, and he can help encourage them to join.
