Trade volume on Poloniex was not this high for almost a year, at 1 day interval!  Shocked

Trade volume of almost all cryptocoins is going crazy in China, just check http://coinmarketcap.com/exchanges/btc38/ even coins that had almost no trade volume anywhere like a month ago are now traded for 10+ BTC. Does anyone have some conections with chinese exchanges, preferably BTC38 or some other that deals with altcoins?


90% of all the top 12 volume coins are coins which have been added recently to Shapeshift.io.

Huge profits have been made on these alts so a lot of that is spilling over into other alts.

I keep hearing that Chinese investors are doing this but I really see no proof of this.  It's possible but you can ignore this shapeshift effect where people can trade alts with no name, no email, zero identity so it's a money laundering dream.  That has a lot to do with this alt boom which I think is gonna explode later this summer, probably next month on July.

Explode like "bubble burst" or "to the Moon"?

Whatever the reasons are behind altcoin frenzy at China it is Huntercoin losing big time because of no presence there. Not really smart to ignore China, ingame they were fun and I'm so missing "Go" spammed at chat every damn block by chinese players.

alright. well. you need to rebroadcast your transactions to the network because they were never packed into a block... but this wallet doesnt have an rpc command to do that... so i can code one up today. theres probably also some other small fixes i could make to have the wallet run better. i post something before i go to sleep tonight. i am updating a website right now so it probably wont be until a little later in the day

Any update on this? I tried a transaction to myself and it went through and went to send another sendmany command and it froze the transaction like the others.

No working wallet = people can't get their coins from DK or the faucet and its making me look bad as they aren't getting what I promised them.

Wallet v4.0 has issue with too low fee when sending coins to 3rd-party (outside of wallet).

https://i.imgur.com/EnQgsgz.png

Both unconfirmed transactions are in mempool and were broadcasted to other nodes but I can't tell if other nodes accepted them or not.

Fix please.

I've polished the look a bit more but there should be more text at first paragraph (above Features). No clue what more to add so if anyone feels like helping there - you're welcomed!

I have posted just a quick thoughts on the matter so they are not perfect but unless a total noobie can start playing Huntercoin in few minutes without a need to have some cryptocoins then I think Huntercoin will never reach mainstream. We can go much more radical when it comes to free generals, like "Free to create, dies upon 6 blocks of inactivity or once it collects 10 HUC". Point here is to let people play for free at start and then if they like the game most will go through trouble of making Cryptsy or Poloniex or wharever account to buy HUC with BTC or whatever else. Many games today are freemium (free to play with premium features) and gaming industry is going that direction big time.
566  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][HUC] Huntercoin - Human Mining / Merge Minable Dual Algo / P2P MMO on: June 16, 2015, 02:50:09 PM
You will start with 200 Life (the cost of your hunter). And if you hit someone with destruct it will do 200 Damage and you will gain 200 Health. They will die and you will have 400 health, and so on.

With current price of HUC and BTC the cost of general is roughly 1 USD but imagine if HUC goes up 10x or more (very realistic scenario), general would cost 10+ USD. Very high price to just start playing the game, not for everyone but some players would have problem with that. So how about the following deal:

1. There are 2 types of generals, normal (paid one, works exactly as ones ingame now) and free one.
2. The only thing free generals can do is collect coins until they cash-out let's say 1,000 HUC where those coins go to game fund, faucet, miners or something like that.
3. Once step 2. is complete free general turns into normal general.

Free general could not use destruct and could not be a target of destruct. That way it can not be used to pump-up other's general life (by same player) nor it can be used to ruin the gameplay of players who are using normal generals.

Not sure how to prevent mass-creation of free generals for the sake of spamming blockchain and mempool though (no playing), need to think more on the matter.

Thanks mate.

The issue with low general cost (free ones) is the mass creation and spam of the chain (they need to cost something though, as your player is a "locked coin").

Originally at 1 HUC (with less in circulation), the blockchain growth was "a lot". Since increasing the cost, adding disaster and adding fees for movement we have reduced the chain growth significantly.
By removing "loss of coins" upon disaster with the next update there will probably be more hunters on the map - if the price was very cheap, we'll probably see thousands of hunters just stood still on every coin spot like in the past.
Another reason is that automated players (bots) can play 247 with little worry, and if those players aren't worth anything to kill they will be left alone... so it's an advantage to them more than humans.
By increasing general cost (and adding lifesteal), every hunter will be worth killing.
Currently the bots are very good at auto harvesting but not good at PvP when competing against a human player (atm). If we shift the game more torwards pvp it should put botters more in direct competition with humans until they adapt further, and until we add some more complexity with combat - e.g. Reds do a Point Blank AoE, Blue do a cone shaped aoe, yellow do a direct line attack etc.. or maybe multiple attacks for each hunter - we have now implemented the ability to add fees for "actions" (destruct) and fees for creation which all go into the gamefund. So some attacks could cost X, others Y, and certain types of classes/colours could cost more to create.

I personally think the game/human mining part would be more desirable if you can kill someone for 10 $ or 100$ rather than 1$.. but i know not everyone shares that view.
Maybe 200 HUCs will need to be reduced though

some different priced hunters in the future is definitely a possibility.

There is no real incentive for botters to use free generals. They would waste a lot of time and get coins only after general turns from free to normal version. Given that botting is advanced operation and that it is highly likely botters already have either BTC or HUC it would be in their interest to create just normal generals (better ROI) but it is random player, a noobie to cryptocoins, who would have major issues starting to play Huntercoin. Just imagine situation where someone just downloaded mobile version and wants to play, where to get HUC? Even if HUC is added to Shapeshift.io or some similar exchanges player would still need BTC to buy HUC. What if he has no cryptocoins at all? No problem, play instantly but you'll pay 1,000 HUC to development fund before you get any coins for yourself. Development fund can afterwards pay some coins to miners or people running full-nodes as compensation for increased use of bandwidth and computer resources.

As for players just sitting at the same spot doing nothing, well, just kill them all after let's say 120 blocks of inactivity.  Grin

Huntercoin is a P2P cryptocurrency which incorporates human mining. A blockchain-based alternate reality, P2P decentralized cryptocurrency game - MMOCG. Huntercoin is a Namecoin (NMC) fork.

Features:

42 million coins, current supply is around 7 million coins.
1 minute block time.
10 coins per block 1 coin to miners, 8.75 coins onto the map and 0.25 coins for Crown of Fortune (see below).
Dual algorithm SHA256 + Scrypt - Each algorithm has separate difficulty, both are targeting 2 minute block time and are merge-mineable.
Difficulty retargets every block based on the last 2016 blocks (PPC style) for each algorithm separately.
Integrated chat Not realtime, newly broadcasted messages are published when a new block is mined. They stay recorded in blockchain permanently.
Includes all relevant features of other cryptocurrencies.

Human mining Control Hunters to harvest coins on a map using strategy, time and optionaly teamwork.
After a Hunter brings harvested coins them back to a spawn area they will materialize in player wallet. Miners will receive 10% of these "banked" coins (bank tax).
When a Hunter is killed, 4% of the coins it held will be taken by miners (death tax) and the rest will be dropped to the ground. Any player can pick them up afterwards.
Miners should receive in total (over time) 20% of block reward (2 coins) + all taxes.
Crown of Fortune Unique item on the map, player who picked it up will be getting 0.25 coins per newly mined block for as long as crown is in his possession.
Cost per new Hunter is 200 coins.

I would like to see this metal detector as well. Can we see some pictures of the device?  I live in Vegas (near where they make Minelabs Metal Detectors), and I have been metal detecting most of my life.  This idea, is it a one time 30 day expedition only? I have been considering doing metal detecting expeditions, sponsored like this by crypto users. Where are you located ?

At first, I tought this is about profits from expedition only. It took me another reading to realise that expedition is only a 30-day field test-run and that the main deal here are metal detectors.  Cheesy

You might want to move this thread to more appropriate subforum like Securities ...
You may right about correct category sisar..
I publish this thread also in Securities category, not sure can there be same ANN in two places.
So if this will get removed from here, thread will continue on Securities category:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1091246.0

I will post some images and details about device tomorrow.

Stay on line..

Any moderator can just move thread to some other subforum, no need to publish anything. It would be a waste to lose 3 pages of posts here.

Are there any pictures of metal detector you are about to test at Australia or at least a prototype? One of my friends is hardcore treasure hunter and would like to see the device, even a low quality photo would work.

You might want to move this thread to more appropriate subforum like Securities at https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=78.0 because this subforum is the most heavily spammed one on the whole website. It takes like 30 minutes of no new posts for any thread to end up on 2nd page, a day later thread will be on page 4 or worse. And to be true, this thread has absolutely nothing to do with altcoins.

Study StartCOIN last few days and have to say things looking real good here.

Nice network security to Wink

Will buy a few and see how it goes.

It will go like this:

1. Due to horrible low liquidity you idiots will easily keep on pushing price to sky, buying pathetic low amount of coins compared to premine.
2. The more you rise the price, the more premined coins (50% of total coin supply!) will be given out for free to projects or whatever. None of you have a say in that.
3. No one really accepts START so coins given out for free will be dumped at exchange for BTC > fiat money. That means massive and constant selling pressure.
4. In never-ending attempt to keep the price high you'll be providing liquidity to dumpers who will end with useful stuff (BTC or fiat money). You'll end with useless coins.

Max Keiser once said "Do not play the game, play the players". He and his scumbag friends are doing just that, here and earlier with Maxcoin.

You have been warned.

1. 10% of startcoin in one week on one exchange is not low liquidity.
2. There is not given out more coins, but the coins given out will be worth more.
3. Startcoin is going into some rather big funds and into cold storage now, and is not coming back anytime soon. Watch the supply on Bittrex.
4. Increasing price means more miners and higher difficulty, and therefore a safer network.

You people are so clueless, you might want to check some basic trading articles before you venture into trading. You even have no clue what liquidity means (it is not the same as trade volume, stupid). Other stuff you posted is just garbage. You don't even know how START works, how about go back to starting post here, maybe you'll notice "StartCOIN has been 50% pre-mined, 90% of which will be donated to projects and active users of StartJOIN". Mining, miners, difficulty, safer network, please just shut the hell up on matters you have no clues about. You are as stupid as guy on previous page who thinks 50% premine is good because it makes a chance for 51% attack lower. With PoW coin. Holy shit!

On a second thought, you ignorant people actualy deserve to be skinned alive by Max and other wolves.

Registered at your exchange but received no activation email for over an hour now, if I try to login it says I must first activate account. There is no "Resend activation email" button anywhere.
Hard to say why you have not got mail, but you can login now.
Yes, check spam folder also.

Nothing in spam folder or anywhere else but I was able to login and afterwards received PIN code to email main inbox. So there is somewhere a problem with sending first ever email (activation link or whatever it is), PIN code email works fine.
Thanks for info. I'll put this "resend" feature on my list.
We are updating site and will add many new features soon.
This one will be there.

Another useful thingy would be 2-factor authentication (2FA) for login and withdrawals, preferably by Google.

What happens if this heart shaped nugget is the size of a watermelon ?
Haha, thats what I'm afraid also  Roll Eyes
Well, I think we can take that risk.

No, we can't. There are many risks already when it comes to this project (or any other prescious metal extraction deal), to add one more and potentially remove major profit from shareholders is a bad deal. I don't see a room for smilies here. You should separate private deals from business ones especially when there is a chance your private deals might have huge effect on business ones.

Other than that, this project looks worth investing into.

Also please consider adding Huntercoin to your exchange, it is an awesome altcoin developed by known developers, with unique coin distribution scheme. It is pretty much a digital version of what you are about to do with your project, metal detectors excluded.

Anybody know why the difficulty in this coin is so high?  Who would mine this coin at such a big loss?

Thanks!

It's merge mined. F2pool aka Discus Fish mines (almost?) all the blocks I think.

Isn't HUC a sha coin?  HUC is not one of the merge mined coins with Bitcoin.  I'm certain of it.  So what are they merge mining it with?  

So you haven't read my lengthy reply to your questions?

With new wallet UPnP port mapping is unavailable, that is not good. It means guaranteed issues with conectivity (unable to accept incoming connections). Number of reachable nodes is already low and without UPnP enabled it will surely go down.

https://i.imgur.com/aElqmiV.jpg

that is incorrect, UPNP mapping is on, i compiled the wallets with upnp mapping enabled

Are you suggesting that I faked that screenshot?

No, absolutly not. What he means is that he enabled the upnp mapping when he compiled the wallets. So all the wallets have upnp enabled for better connectivity.
What you image shows is that we can't disable UPnP mapping

How many different Bitcoin-Qt-like wallets you have? I have a dozen and with none of them UPnP port mapping checkbox looks like one with a new Flappycoin wallet. So it must be that Bitcoin, Dash, Doge, Maxcoin and all other developers are wrong.
