Considering Bitcoin literally just did a soft fork a day or two ago to implement CheckLockTimeVerify, which happens to be a technology from an altcoin, I think it's safe to say that yes, people are still interested in altcoins.

This might not be an issue at all, but gmaxwell seems to imply here that there might be a vulnerability in the way segregated witness is implemented in BBR:

I really want to see them go after him for Paycoin too. I hope this Hashlet case is just the first step.

if John decided to invest 100's of thousands of dollars of his time and wealth in the project I would still consider him an investor....  actually he is the best investor because that means the developer has a vested interest in the project succeeding...... 

but this is off topic.


the post is related to the whitepaper, hopefully Im not just answering another smooth/icebreaker puppet that I havent put on ignore yet.

You can call anyone an investor. But saying there's a secret angel investor is quite different: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angel_investor

That was a super sketchy move.

I'd say the final nail in the coffin of VNC was when John Connor revealed that the secret angel investor that was supposed to be supporting the project was a lie. And surprise! The 'angel investor' was John Connor all a long!

Lead people to believe that there was outside financial interest in the project to pump the price and then pull the 'it's just a prank bro!'.

Very ethical.

Many people over the past couple of years have mentioned that NXT has had it all in the tech department, but little to no marketing, thus holding its potential back. So it seems now the community is getting serious and putting some real money behind a marketing drive now. It's great to see that they were able to raise that amount of money, and it's going to be interesting to watch NXT over the next while.

What's going on in this thread?  Is this an article from The Onion?

http://www.theonion.com/

It was created as a parody, so I think that's probably a good comparison. Tongue

Anyway, if it's not Larimer as Spoetnik implied, then who is Freetrade?

Freetrade is this guy, who looks absolutely nothing like Larimer:



Who is he?

All the pieces are finally coming together.

Why sell alts for BTC when they're already priced in BTC? All else being equal any gains you make on BTC are already included.

If Bitcoin went from $250 to $10,000 tomorrow, would you keep your alts or sell all of them for BTC.

I see what you're saying. Last time though alts did really well so even with increased sell pressure from people wanting to cash some alts in to BTC to sell for fiat, the amount of new money coming in to BTC in an event like that can lead some people in to leveraging their positions by getting in to alts.

BTS could have just directly told exchanges about it a week or 3 before the swap/change/update.
Assuming that exchanges are keeping up with any particular projects development just makes everyones lives harder.

It's not that hard to just mail exchanges some info and offer support (if needed) for the update.



To be honest, update was coordinated with delegates and delegate participation rate drop to 30% right after the snapshot, but even at chain with so small delegate participation rate Bittrex and few other exchanges keep process deposit/withdraw.
Everybody was quite confident that if even some exchanges somehow miss 4 weeks notice, they will stop deposit/withdraw automatically and nothing bad will happened.

Who are these 71 delegates that are getting paid and doing nothing? How are they still voted in?

How much BTS do they get per month again? I remember at one point Nikolai quit Google(?) or something to be a delegate and I think I remember him saying he got around $2k in BTS per month, but that was a while ago and it's probably not a current number.

Do you have delegates that fulfill particular roles like a 'communications' delegate that does the job of communcating changes to the community and the business related to it(like exchanges)?

Probably you misunderstand my previous post, delegate participation rate drop from 100% to 30%.
For all other questions, welcome to https://bitsharestalk.org  Smiley

Oh, I just re-read it and I think I get it now. You meant the old version fork only had 30% delegate participation and if someone understood how Bitshares works it should have been obvious that it was the wrong chain. Is that closer?

I'll ask in slack about the node issue.

The original dev is no longer involved but there is currently active development going on from dbkeys and the developer he's hired to implement his ideas.

C# is much better these days about cross platform compatibility and open source. It's only going to get better too from what I can tell from observing Microsoft's path thus far. They've changed their strategy a lot.

It's part of SuperNET, yes. But the fact that it's new tech(Cryptonote) means it takes more work to integrate it into different things. Whereas most currencies are backwards compatible with Bitcoin.

People are working on the 2.0 stream of releases for the SuperNET software itself right now. So I'm not sure if it's better to just wait for that to get out of beta or whatever first, or have someone who can assist in integrating BBR in to the wallet part contact someone from that specific team(called the CPMT).

Thanks for explaining the reasoning why bbr integration is taking longer than other coins. Any idea on the eta for 2.0 coins?

Not sure. Someone will probably have to take the lead on integrating BBR in to the wallet part. I'm not sure how doing that with Cryptonote tech compares to other currencies.
