Coins with PoW that waste a ton of electricity sure are the future right? Nothing gets investors excited like a coin that requires ever expanding resources in order to secure the network.

Money must be expensive to create.  That's what gives it value.  
  
A rock that came from a planet a thousand light years away is more valuable than a child's macaroni art.  
  
A coin that was forged through millions of computers all competing using a network measured in zettahashes (PoW) is more valuable than a coin given out to someone for sitting on a large stack of already minted coins (PoS).  
  
You may not understand money as well as you think.  It's not a bug that Bitcoin or Monero is so hard to create - it's a feature.  

If you waste all available energy on mining some PoW coin you will end up with zeroes and ones stored somewhere (HDDs or whatever) that are useless because you have no energy to start the show. Or if we go hardcore physics, since everything is energy, you would end up with nothing, literary. Right there you should see a big difference BTC vs anything physical. BTC is immaterial and requires so many things to function in order to be of some use while everything material stands on it's own. Gold and diamonds are pretty much indestructable and you don't have to use any energy or whatever else to maintain their qualities and properties. Hence all cryptocoins suck in a grand scheme of things.

If it is not up to human greed and a need to secure the network (so failed specie we are) one could run the show with average computer.

Get your altcoins out of Cryptsy, now! Withdrawals are already not working for 10+ biggest altcoins trade-volume-wise. Nor Bitcoin. If you fail to react to current situation you might lose double because not only you might lose your altcoins but Cryptsy demise might result in altcoin available total supply dropping massively hence price increase due to all lost coins.

Interesting what you said about Cryptsy demise resulting in altcoin supply drop...do you have any idea how significant it could be.  Any particular alt coins it would happen to most?  I am seriously surprised people still have coins in there.  There have been countless warnings on this forum.

Cryptsy was the major or even the only one exchange for many altcoins.

I wouldn't worry about it until there's actual evidence of something of the sort being implemented.

How much more evidence you need beside stuff provided in this thread?

The way to lose money this days = pump START to 0.00018+ BTC in order to get out of fucking defunct and broken Cryptsy! Yes, I did that today. Now hoping to see some Max or Stacy or Carl tricks that would increase START to 0.00018+ BTC so cmon UK bastards, just do it. Don't pretend you have no aces in your sleeves, I know you have many. Pump START else ...

Conclusion, as for now = Satoshi is an alien (or a group of) not working for the true benefit of the mankind. All this 21s are soul-sold bitches contributing to the cause just to make more money. Like the amount of it will matter in the end, stupids.

Guis there's 21 in agenda 21, 21 in 21 Inc. and there can be a maximum of 21 million bitcoins ever.

Hmm, so how exactly did I missed 21 million total coins? I should stop drinking this Macedonian black vine, immidiately, else I might come up with epic conclusions based on a single bit of data.  Grin

Seriously, there is something fishy with all those 21s.
308  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Is Bitcoin Unlimited another Bitcoin XT? on: January 13, 2016, 12:21:05 AM
I am so confused. First came Bitcoin XT which tried to solve Bitcoin's block size cap (and apparently it failed) but now there is something new called Bitcoin Unlimited? I just read a few things about it and as far as I understood you can choose any block size right? What is this? Another alt coin or a fork?  Huh

Due to astronomical Bitcoin mining difficulty it is pointless to talk about real Bitcoin and Bitcoin altcoin. Wallet that gets the majority of hashrate will win, it is as easy as that. All Bitcoin services will be forced to switch to it else they'll be at real and high risk of ending up as victims of double-spends. And Bitcoin altcoin would not live even for a day because no new blocks would be mined for that period of time, or ever. Do not count on Bitcoiners actualy waiting the next block for very long.

With PoW coins, the amount of hashrate equals the amount of votes.

The first Bitcoin wallet that starts paying extras to miners will win. Economics which Satoshi either failed to include in equation or bet on.

Am I the only one around here so easily connecting the dots between Agenda 21 and 21 Inc. Bitcoin mining company, praised by pretty much everyone at the highest levels of Bitcoin scene?

Many people here are bashing PoS coins because of one (1) stupid article where author calculated that if the biggest NXT forger continues forging for like 1000 years he will get 51% of total coins. Absolutely laughable. Like, he is that stupid to compromise his enormous wealth by actualy performing 51% attack. Just like Satoshi is stupid and will one day dump his incredibly massive BTC bags down to zero USD.

In the other news, Factom (FCT) is +70% for the day with 2,500+ BTC volume.

Withdrew my last 1 BTC through a few altcoins, not coming back under any circumstances. So long and thanks for all the fish, Cryptsy!

315  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] [PXC] Phoenixcoin v0.6.6.0 ~ NeoScrypt on: January 12, 2016, 10:55:52 PM
Well at least critical upgrades to DDoS protection, OpenSSL and such stuff should be added to PXC, you can skip the cosmetics. As for CC, I absolutely love it and use it so thanks for that! As a sidenote, it seems to me it is about the right time to withdraw all PXC from Cryptsy and to start working on PXC addition to some Chinese exchange.

316  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [SXC][NSFW] Sexcoin - Crypto for the Adult Entertainment Industry on: January 12, 2016, 10:51:20 PM
Better remove all your coins from Cryptsy (not just SXC) else you might end up without them, forever. We are at similar stage as with MtGox, when there were many signs of inevitable shutdown yet many ignored them and later lost all BTC they had at that exchange. Either learn the easy way from their mistake or you might learn the hard way from your own.

Any chance for PXC wallet to get some upgrades? Build date is Jul 26. 2014. I mean there were at least few hundred upgrades added to Bitcoin code since then, it can't be all of them are garbage.

I'm very glad that I started this thread because now it is more clear to me that most people who are bearish on altcoins are clueless and inexperienced. Which makes me bullish on altcoins even more.

You're the only one who thinks like that and the rest; the 99,9% off this forum disagrees with you. You still dont realize that you are the biggest clueless noob here!

The most of Bitcoin community are fanatics, highly unrealistic and not thinking with clear heads, which of course leads to results like one linked bellow, where 50 "experts" or whatever were asked to predict BTC price at around 01.01.2015. an essential reading for anyone interested in realisation of how a majority can be very wrong. That means even a majority of this forum, even right now.

I invested in monero and nxt and look at them now.

"I Invested in Bitcoin at 1200 USD and look at it now. Bitcoin sux!" - Noobish trader and investor, at the time Bitcoin was at 200 USD.

Investing in altcoins requires lots of research if you want to profit unless your investing in the top altcoins.

It is actualy the oppossite of what you stated. The higher on marketcap list some altcoin is placed, the more time you'd need to research it and stay up to date. For other altcoins, in a single day you can quick-check hundreds of them for at least basics like community activity (forum thread), existence of main website and explorer, trade volume at exchanges and all-time charts simply by using http://coinmarketcap.com/ data. After discarding what looks like shit to you keep on learning more about altcoins that you like. In under a week you'll have a clear picture of situation and then just occassionaly check for any updates.
