Good privacy is quite a relative term if you put it that way. Can you maybe let us know a little bit more about the degree of privacy users of your network can expect?
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] UniFox - 💎 Imagine MasterCard for cryptocurrencies 💎 on: August 06, 2018, 10:23:52 PM
How will this project differ from other ICO? I'm seeing the same functionality with other projects, what are you guys up to in this marketplace?

Hello, UniFox have an entire crypto-friendly ecosystem, 5 connected products that will helps with all crypto transactions. Thanks to our POS terminals you will be able to easily pay in crypto and the retailer receives fiat currency! Maybe there are similar projects, but you can not buy with their cryptocurrencies, and you can with Unicash.

What's the POS for in this context? Does it relate to your chain being proof of stake? How many terminals will be set up in the beginning or does that depend on how many merchants will order your terminal?

We need an airdrop to stimulate things on the waves platform, maybe to celebrate the release of the Client 1.0.0.

But why do you think that an airdrop will stimulate anything right now? Its giving away resources for free and who knows if anybody really becomes more active only because of an airdrop.

In fact waves just need adoption not airdrops lol. It will come with smart contracts on main net, I'm pretty sure.
And speaking about prices, every altcoin is going/went down, it's just the market right now! ICO price was around $0.19 btw

Yes not caring about the price right now as it's the same for every project, but as I said airdrops won't do anything for the price except for pushing it further down.
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][WHITELIST]WorkChain.io- Real Time Payroll on the Blockchain | Working App! on: August 06, 2018, 10:21:32 PM
So the objective is to have a daily payout instead of monthly or bi-monthly? There is also an advantage of having less paydays as it forces the receiver to manage the financials properly. If people tend to spend their money fast it might even be harder for them to save daily payouts if a big payment needs to be done for anything important.

So the objective is to have a daily payout instead of monthly or bi-monthly?

Yes.

There is also an advantage of having less paydays as it forces the receiver to manage the financials properly. If people tend to spend their money fast it might even be harder for them to save daily payouts if a big payment needs to be done for anything important.

If you take the position that consumer spending habits wouldn't change then you're right that it could have negative impacts.

Our team takes the position that it's not the job of the State / Employer to 'force people to save' and lock them into payroll cycles which if we're honest were never setup to help the employee. They were setup to allow businesses time to better manage their cash-flow and have time to process the payroll itself. We wrote about that recently here:

https://medium.com/workchain-io/blockchain-payroll-it-makes-zero-sense-that-youre-still-living-paycheck-to-paycheck-and-you-ac9dfdc4a0ef

--

We believe that an individual should be compensated the moment the job is done and can be verified. How they choose to spend or save their money is their business. Not ours.

While our initial goal is to liberate individuals from payroll cycles, we also want to help them put their money to work faster so they (not the business or bank) can earn from their savings before they need it for life's expenses: https://workchain.io/whitepaper/workpay%20advance

--

Here is how we see the future and what we're building at WorkChain.io:

An individual's savings are available and they alone choose how much they want to have available for withdrawal on a daily basis. They also choose how much they want to automatically put to work earning interest every single day they work! When they need to pay a rent, or a bill for example they can have those funds pre-programmed so be available on those specific dates.

--

The world is a pretty depressing place if we don't believe in people to evolve alongside technology / or that they need the state to manage their lives/finances for them. That's not the world our team chooses to believe in. At it's core, isn't this what Bitcoin is all about, and how it all started? Wink

I agree with you in most parts, but the state does have to intervene every now and then. Following your reasoning it would be ok to just allow anyone to drink alcohol and take drugs and then say that it's the citizens' own responsibility. I really think that more people will get into trouble if they get their money every day.

If you say that the process for granting credit takes less than 2 minutes why is your project called 7seconds?
Under 2 minutes if you count time using Earth's parameters, but we found systems with planets, where you can do the same operation in 7Seconds. That's why we called 7Seconds.

Wow that's some crazy thought process. Cheesy I would have never come up with that in a million years if I didn't decide to just ask you.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] [ART] Maecenas: First ever fine artwork to be auctioned on the blockchain! on: August 06, 2018, 10:14:29 PM
Is there a mechanism for a painting sold for ART to be resold to a single owner. Eg. someone buys shares in the Warhol but loses the private key, how can a future investor fully own the piece?

Yes this is covered in the terms of the SPV when it's created. They know the identity of everyone who co-owns the Warhol so you can never lose your investment due to technical problems because there is an offline old fashioned paper record of it in custody of an official agent.

Is it therefore not possible to anonymously own a piece of art if bought on Maecenas? There is always someone who has the information right?

They can. But they won't necessarily get a better deal if they want to, because by buying shares they would push the price up

Isn't that anyway the case that the price goes up if a lot of people want to buy? You could have zero knowledge proofs like someone who wants to buy and places an order is not known but the order and the piece of art or the share in that art is known.

A little news in the meantime: BitCloud is now listed on Coinlib

Great to see listing on new exchanges, but as always, I emphasis the decentralized Cryptobridge exchange for everyone. Use it! Control your keys while you still trade.
 Grin

Yes it is a very good thing that you keep control but decentralized exchanges have less volume and trading speed. It's a bit annoying sometimes but has the huge upside that they usually can't lose your funds.
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] Bonafi - Fights counterfeits using Blockchain and Crypto-Tag on: August 06, 2018, 10:05:12 PM

The extension for the browser is only one part of Bonafi right? You will also have a mobile and a desktop application?

No, there will not be an application for the desktop, since it doesnt make sense.
There will be an application for iOS, Android, as well as a separate application for the same systems but for sellers.
Well, as you have noticed, the extensions for Chrome, Firefox and Explorer

Wow, I heard only about the expansion for Chrome. If they are for the mentioned browsers too, it's very good, because I'm used to Firefox.
Do you think the use of the extension will be paid?
Well, as I understand this it will have a purely symbolic value. Not so big to worry about it. We are looking forward to the launch of the extension!

Why symbolic value? There are also a lot of people using other browsers than Chrome and it's good to have as many potential users as possible covered.

I think it was about the cost of using the extension. It cant be too expensive, I think

What cost of using the extension? Oh you mean the amount of tokens someone has to pay to actually download and use it?

Nice, but still waiting for that killer dapp that brings Decent to the map and center of the attention. What could that even be?

Winning the hackathon is a good sign that the team behind Decent is able to create something big. You don't win those events if you are bad.

What are you talking about? Do you mean arranging the hackathon instead of winning it? Or do you think that Decent won it?

I didn't know they actually arranged the hackathon as the title of their article suggests that they won it. Anyway, it's good they increase visibility and involvement with the space as a whole by such actions.

Another useful project. I suppose that all bonuses are paid in tokens. Can all revived tokens from different stores be combined and spent on one thing.
of course, you can buy something in partner's store using these tokens. I suppose that there will be a lot of useful things.
and if I won't find the thing I want? What should I do in this case. The idea to buy unwanted rubbish doesn't brings me joy at all
his point is described in white paper. It will be possible to exchange WU tokens for fiat money. Anyway I t think that the list of partners will be enough for you
You know, because some loyalty programs offer only bonus points that can be applicable only special store. They are literary force us to buy more. Glad to find out that I can exchange received tokens for fiat money. Thank you for information.

That's not bad but I think that the tokens would probably trade at a tiny discount compared to the value that you could actually use them for if you buy a service or product from a merchant.

Whooo! #TheAbyss is now listed on #LATOKEN #exchange (@latokens)! Trading has already started. The following pairs are available:
Trade NOW: http://bit.ly/2n99cEp



It looks like LAtoken is a promising place to start exchanging tokens. They have listed a lot of relatively high profile projects in recent times and they are growing at a very fast speed.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: Vites platform on it's way! on: August 06, 2018, 09:52:10 PM
Will the swap be automatic or anything the holders need to do in advance to also get a part from the new blockchain.

The holders will need to send their tokens to a exchange which we will announce when everything is ready and set. It's a 1:1 swap. For each token they will receive a coin from the new blockchain.

For how long will it be possible to do the swap? A lot of people might miss it if the time is too short and they are not following the news here.

They will have approx 1 month to swap. In many other project it has been proven that 1 month is more then enough for people to swap. And pretty sure that people might miss it. It seem to happen with every project, even with 1 month swap time. But that's something we cannot do anything about.

Even with 2- or more months swapping time people still miss it. But that's simply they aren't keeping an eye on the projects which they are speculating (some people call it investing) in. We will be sharing the swapping announcement in 8 channels. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook etc. This should be more than enough.

And what about the people that miss it? You just abandon them from the network for missing a deadline? It sounds like a scam to me.

If we believe that the project has a lot of potential and that the market in general Bill be much more improved in there it is now in a couple of years it makes a great guest to hold on to this investment and project for a while
 what you’re saying is partnership with AT&T and Verizon will be announced?
though it is a good project.But there is a lot of uncertainty in the cryptocurrency market.There are too many factors related to its success, such as the attitude of the government, the market environment, etc.i don't know if we should hold it.

Until i see Verizon and AT&T actually come out with statements of a mutual cooperation, i will remain sceptical. Remember when iota claimed it had an official partnership with Microsoft? I dont care to see that happening again

That's a healthy opinion here. So many teams announce some cooperation or partnership and in rarely any case the actual partners step forward and confirm that there is actually a cooperation planned or already going on.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] NDL - The coin for Pastafarians - Flying Spaghetti Monster Cryptocurrency! on: August 06, 2018, 09:50:12 PM
trading: forum members do private trades using NDL or other currencies
goods: instant noodles for NDL (for example)

Instant noodles is intriguing... though I'm not sure how private trades would be done appropriately.  You up to applying any of those ideas for some NDL?

What does instant noodles in this context even stand for? Is it the real food that should me more quickly exchangeable with NDL?

I believe that was the premise, in the context of "real food" being anything containing and or associated with actual noodles.

This is a bit weird then. Is there really the need for a coin that is focussed on everything that has to do with noodles? Cheesy

The coin is not focused on noodles.  That was merely one idea that we could correlate with it.  Besides, pool noodles taste awful.

Ok but coin for pastafarians could very well suggest that this has at least some sort of focus on products that have to do with noodles. Wink
