Hey!

I thought this may be the best place in the forums to share my new project. I'd be grateful for any feedback that ya'll have!  Grin

www.bitcoinmaximalism.com

Your website is very nice,but this post belongs to the "Project developement" sub-forum.

Thanks! Maybe so, but I thought I would get more valuable feedback in this subforum... I guess that I was wrong, lol!

I'll move it now if the settings allow for it.

Edit: It won't allow me to move it- sorry!

3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Is Ethereum a bubble? on: September 09, 2018, 03:51:55 PM
Personally, I still see a lot of promise in Ethereum. The reasons that I changed my mind about it being a bubble are still true:

- Big Network Effect
- Large smart contract developer community
- Solid team of core developers

Everyone likes shiny new toys, so EOS has recently taken some market share, but I think that Ethereum will take some of this back if given enough time to implement things like sharding, PoS, and other scalability features.

Larimer's blockchains have a history of getting hyped up upon release, then fading away into irrelevancy due to many missteps. Personally, I think having developers pay for fees is a terrible model that most developers will want to avoid. I certainly wouldn't like the headache of planning my dApp in a way to make sure it doesn't go broke and need to be injected with extra cash later.

IMO, the recent price decline (to BTC) is mostly due to an overral cryptocurrency paradigm where ALTs perform exeptionally poorly in bear markets. Now noobs are starting to panic in their first bear market. Most noobs that I know were investing in ETH last year because Bitcoin was "old" and "boring".

I'm sorry to see this turned into a trainwreck. I hope this doesn't harm the participant's will to support DEX projects. They will be an essential cornerstone of the crypto economy.

anyone interetsed in a 1st-gen (iirc) coin? i think i have some whith holos attached and some with the sticker still unapplied (included)

I might be interested depending on price. I only have a few regular edition coind left. Empty Special Edition coins seem to be going for about $100 FWIW. PM me if you want to offer me a price. 😁

A Ukrainian hacker group dubbed Coinhoarder

Just popping in to say that I obviously have nothing to do with this, because I don't know any Ukranians....

Well... as long as you don't count the random Ukranian couple I met while staying at a hostel in Amsterdam, with whom I have not had any contact ever since. 😂

I like Bitshares best. Unless you're looking for ERC20 coins... then maybe ForkDelta
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Your favorite stablecoin?? on: April 11, 2018, 03:45:26 AM
Bitshares' bitUSD has been holding its decentralized and autonomous peg since 2014. It operates on free market dynamics, is collateralized >1.5x by the BTS token, and trades on its own decentralized exchange.

So whats this look like one year later?
Hi!

I almost forgot about this thread. Smiley

IMO... not bad considering I didn't make any adjustments. I think I could have done better with active management.



Some commentary:

- I think this bear market will be much shorter than the previous year+ long bear markets due to the amount of $$$ waiting on the sidelines that's chomping at the bit to get in. This money will see the large correction and assume (correctly) that now is the best time to get into the game.
- I think I focused too much on diversification. If I would have stuck to a smaller number of quality projects, then I think I would have fared better (something like BTC/LTC/ETH/XMR/BTS... which have been my top 5 for a long time now). The VC-like "spray and pray" approach is probably not optimal for forming a crypto portfolio because the mid/low caps have a high amount of risk/uncertainty.
- It is no surprise that the coins that appreciated the most have a working product, decent network effect, are generally accepted as being legit on a technical basis, started out as medium/large caps, and they all have good reputations on Bitcointalk... which is still where I think the most knowledgeable alt coiners conversate most (you just have to filter through a lot of B.S., but it is more organized than Twitter- with the same amount of B.S.)
- If I were to remake the CH Index now, then I would leave a majority of these coins off the list and replace them with newer more promising coins (things move fast in cryptoland).

Some have come up. The likes of IDEX, Forkdelta, Token Market are some good ones. I'm particularly impressed by IDEX's UI and hitchfree trading although the minimum withdraw funds are higher than most I've seen in other dexs

Thanks for the recommendations. Those names have come up before up-thread, but I just haven't had time to check them out... hopefully I can soon.

I just added Bancor too. TBH, I am pretty impressed with the simple and straightforward approach of it. It also provides a novel solution to the liquidity problem most DEXs and decentralized/autonomous stablecoins face.

Bancor
- Status: Released
- Website: https://www.bancor.network/
- BCT Thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1789222.0
Strengths:
- Working implementation
- Fully autonomous and decentralized
- Allows straightforward and simple (Shapeshift-like) exchanges
- A novel and elegant solution to the liquidity problem most DEXs and decentralized/autonomous stablecoins face
Weaknesses:
- Only compatible with Ethereum and/or ERC-20 tokens
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: The DEX (Decentralized Exchange) Thread on: March 25, 2018, 06:45:49 PM
0x has been added to the list:

0x Protocol
- Status: Released
- Website: https://0xproject.com/
- Exchange: https://0xproject.com/portal
- Whitepaper: https://0xproject.com/pdfs/0x_white_paper.pdf
Strengths:
- Working implementation
- Fully autonomous and decentralized
- 0x is a DEX "fat protocol" that other projects are building on top of, thus liquidity will be shared among multiple exchanges
Weaknesses:
- Only compatible with Ethereum and/or ERC-20 tokens

Multisig (both N/N and N-1/N) will be included in the next release (0.12), which is targeted to be released next week.

When is the release date? Next week at 28th March 2018 or week after next week at 6th April 2018?
Here both are mentioned.

How far along are multi-signature addresses in Monero? Judging by this pull request, I would assume they are already operational by using the CLI wallet? https://github.com/monero-project/monero/pull/3489

Multi-sig will enable Monero p2p FIAT on/off ramps and DEXs, and I think it is important to enable developers to create such (seeing as though regulators are stepping up their enforcement efforts and authoritative bravado.)
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Where have all the cypherpunks gone? on: March 10, 2018, 04:45:22 PM
You sound a lot like the people who lamented that the internet, which was supposed to level the playing field and allow the little guy as much power as a big corporation, got taken over by bigger and bigger corporations, to the point that the old style small blogger with their own lovingly tended domain, has just disappeared.

This is how adoption looks...

Perhaps you are right that I am naive to assume decentralized technologies and cryptography can change the world. I'd like to still remain hopeful that they can do so in the long run due to their decentralized nature, despite the challenges adoption brings, and change the world for the better.

I think it is naive to not understand (and proactively combat) the risk that such profiteers introduce. They can perform a hostile takeover, and make drastic changes to Bitcoin that go against the cypherpunk ethoses. Things such as blacklists, kyc, confiscation, whitelists, surveillance, regulations, laws, accredited investor advantages, etc. will likely become commonplace if cypherpunks underestimate the threat profiteers pose.

They are currently in the majority but i don't think they have any influence about the matter at all.
I hope this is correct. I am not so certain though- doubtful even.
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Where have all the cypherpunks gone? on: March 10, 2018, 04:34:42 PM
What do you guys think? Is the movement doomed, or is it just becoming harder to notice support for the cypherpunk cause due to the influx of the profiteers? These profiteers are seemingly a large majority now, can Bitcoin fight them off and remain true to the cypherpunk ethos?

We do not need to fight them off, we need to have them with us and consider them as assets.

That is a good point. Perhaps I worded that question poorly.

I am just worried about the profiteers lobbying for more regulations or for changes to the Bitcoin's and other cryptocurrencies' protocols that go against cypherpunk ethos. Almost like a hostile takeover. This is what I mean by fight them off.... fight them off from changing things for the worse.

I don't have a problem with their participation or profiteering, as long as core cypherpunk ethoses are able to be maintained despite their participation.

We cannot expect the cypherpunks to go public, conduct seminars, post video tutorials on youtube, etc about Crypto.
Good point. I hope more work is being done behind the scenes than I realize. It is hard to tell without really digging for it due to all the "lambo" noise on cryptocurrency social media and forums.
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Where have all the cypherpunks gone? on: March 10, 2018, 03:41:39 PM
The only people that seem to want cryptocurrencies regulated are the people that simply want to leave with more FIAT than they came with. I still have faith that the cypherpunks will beat out regulators and profiteers and that decentralized & private technologies will win out in the long run, but it seems like an uphill battle- now more than ever.

The problem is that the cryptocurrency community has slowly become a large majority of profiteers rather than cypherpunks. The community ethos has changed dramatically for the worse since I joined in 2012, when most Bitcoiners seemed to be of similar cypherpunk-like mentality. How can we ensure the cypherpunk movement is not stifled by regulators and profiteers?

I think the best way forward is to make sure of two things (even if it requires hard forks to maintain them):

1. Cryptocurrencies, and the surrounding infrastructure, need to be made to be as decentralized as possible (including exchanges, markets, social media, etc.)
2. Cryptocurrencies need to be made to be as private and fungible as possible (by leveraging tor, i2p, ring signatures, zk proofs, coin join, etc.)

What do you guys think? Is the movement doomed, or is it just becoming harder to notice support for the cypherpunk cause due to the influx of the profiteers? These profiteers are seemingly a large majority now, can Bitcoin fight them off and remain true to the cypherpunk ethos?

Didn't see barterdex anywhere, only for desktop at the moment and has atomic swaps active.

https://barterdex.supernet.org/

I haven't added it to the list yet, but it has certainly been discussed in this thread. I have not been able to see or use it yet. I am no longer adding vaporware DEXs to the list since enough DEXs are functional and exist already.


https://www.komodoplatform.com/en/barterdex

^^^ This says I can sign up to be notified when it is released. Ping me when it is so that I can evaluate it.

I love that this thread is so unpopular.  Probably means that it'll have good info, instead of the spam that's in most threads.   Does anyone have a full list of decentralized exchanges (including those that are announced, but not launched yet)?
Unfortunately, yes... this thread is unpopular. Everyone is having a hard time understanding why DEXs are so important. They are beginning to come around though. I have been seeing a lot more chatter around Crypto Twitter about DEXs recently. Sadly I haven't had much time to update this thread though. I will try to do better...

This is good topic, Here are what I got:

paradex.io - ERC20 token dex platform powered by the 0x protocol
dextroid - They claimed as the next generation dex, but it seems still beta phase

Thanks... I have not heard of either of these DEXs!

In my opinion, in the future decentralized exchanges will be superseded by ordinary ones.
Tech inevitably improves upon itself. I mostly agree with you, but you also need to consider that well-funded incumbent (such as already existing DEXs) can and will implement new technology.

One disadvantage of decentralized platform is the speed of trades compared to traditional platform. It is also much higher transaction fee than the normal trading platform. Even security is also an issue like what happened in Etherdelta. I like decentralize platform but I think it needs  more time before it is fully adopted.

I can agree with all of that. They are not optimal, and never will be, but they will be improved upon slowly. We need to still support the DEXs that currently exist even though they are not perfect. Liquidity will not move from centralized to decentralized if there is little/no liquidity on the DEXs.

IDex.market is a user-friendly exchange.

Never heard of it. I am glad there are so many DEXs I haven't heard of!!

I have been using ForkDelta lately which gives you access to the contracts that underpin EtherDelta but with a site that is better maintained.
Interesting, thanks for sharing. The Etherdelta phishing attack was certainly unfortunate. At least the Smart Contract itself has been resilient thus far!

20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: CryptoHunch: A tradable blockchain asset card game based on deceit on: February 03, 2018, 11:49:15 PM
There are a lot of updates to share, as I have made a lot of progress since my last post.  Smiley

The trading cards are essential to the game because obviously... it is a trading card game. I completed the Card Explorer. You can view the game cards, and filter them by owned/unowned cards, the different card packs, or individual cards. This code has been completed.


Deck building will be an essential part of the game's skill element. I completed the Deck Builder. You can create decks with custom labels, add and remove cards from each deck, change the deck's label, and delete the deck. The cards are filterable by the same filters the Card Explorer is (owned/unowned cards, the different card packs, or individual cards.) This code has been completed.


User Profiles where you can publish information about yourself, choose a username and avatar, and link to your social media profiles. Other than gameplay statistics, this code has been completed.





The User Profile is also where you will integrate the game server with the Bitshares blockchain. By signing a memo with a Secret Key generated by the server, it allows the server to ensure you own the Bitshares account in which you will store your card game assets. After the one time setup, the game can query the blockchain at the start of each game to see what cards and card packs you own. This code has been completed.


I am not moving on to programming the game itself and the gaming engine. I estimate that it will take a few weeks until the alpha version is ready for a *closed* alpha test. I will announce when and where to apply for the closed alpha test at that time.

Cheers  Smiley
