 5501 Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: FreiCoin (FRC) discussion (was FreiCoin (FRC) for TRC, PPC, LTC or BTC) on: January 07, 2013, 02:54:09 PM Quote from: jjiimm_64 on January 06, 2013, 08:50:50 PMQuote from: galambo on January 06, 2013, 07:06:54 PMProposed Freicoin NotationsStandard Notation:Use the symbol ⌠ to represent Freicoin in everyday transactions. The symbol is a truncated 'long s'. It is a simple symbol to write by hand, has low ambiguity with other symbols in the alphabet, and can be used to replace the decimal mark.You can access this symbol by holding Alt and typing 244 on your numeric pad on Windows.Alt-244. Go ahead and try it.Examples:6⌠ = "six freicoin"6.001⌠ or 6⌠001 = "six and one thousanth freicoin"Scientific Notation:For large or small values we suggest scientific notation. For this purpose we use the German character 'Eszett,' or 'ß'. The eszett is a ligature of ⌠+s, which we intend to represent "freicoin, scientific."You can access this symbol by holding Alt and typing 225 on your numeric pad on Windows.The symbol uses following formula: xßy = x * 10 ^ yAlt-225. Go ahead and try it.Examples:6.001ß6 = 6001000⌠6.001ß-5 = 0⌠00006001 or 0.00006001⌠I'm not so sure about this idea. It may be controversial.I'm not a fan.I would rather just355.6 frcor355.6(with an F like the bitcoin  ฿)How about  24.9356╒ ╛  or 24.9356╒

 5506 Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: FreiCoin (FRC) Fork WITHOUT 80% Of Coins Given To FreiCoin Foundation on: January 06, 2013, 02:00:39 PM Quote from: giszmo on January 06, 2013, 01:55:02 PMQuote from: ArticMine on January 06, 2013, 01:59:24 AMSo I take this fork / 51% takeover of FreiCoin is now dead. Well, I don't get it. TF apparently doesn't want it to take off.What was his change to the code anyway? Why is it a problem that the foundation already has the coins? If moving these coins never makes it into a block there is no problem.Read the thread... the answers are all there. If you want your own coin that has none of these features... create it. Right? Since the topic is dead might as well lock it and have you start a new topic about your super duper new coin without the 80% trust.
 5508 Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Merge Mine FRC - Start a bounty? on: January 06, 2013, 01:25:51 PM Quote from: crazy_rabbit on January 03, 2013, 10:29:17 PMSo FRC requires every person using the currency to get anything done? Wow. That's horribly inefficient. Or Participatory Economics... or better yet PURE DEMOCRACY. Why would we want that? Imagine a world where you can have real representation about decisions that effect you? How about getting involved in the foundation and help with ideas as it seems you use FRC we need you to take part.

Then don't expect miners to give you 80% of their earnings when they could mine something else and keep 100%.Your message that miners should trust some faceless, and inevitably corrupt, foundation with their earnings more than they should trust themselves is delusional. You have fallen to uncontrolled greed.Those coins were never the miner's to begin with. Why do you feel entitled to them?If I mine coins I see them as mine. They were created with my equipment, my electricity, my time. If you plan to steal them before they are even created I'm going to avoid you like I'd avoid any other thief. No miner will gave away what he could otherwise keep no matter how pretty your reassurances are.But you are blinded by greed and can no longer see anything but dollar signs. Look at this from the miners viewpoint.Greed? I don't have mining rig... I am not part of the dev team or a FFoundation member. You are limiting the scope of what is possible. If you mine it you are accepting the 80% and the 5% and if you don't mine it you accept the 80% and 5% and if you trade it you accept the 80% and 5%. So now that we have settled that how about actually taking a leap of faith and get involved in DEMOCRATICALLY dispensing the trust? Rather than having a small foundation board decide why not the whole community? Isn't having an 80% stake initially of the currency for all better than a fraction of that in a few hands? I think you want to be a 1% and hold as many coins as you can compared with the alternative is having a currency that actually is useful and used for trade not accumulation of wealth. Very very limited view you have and ultimately very UN-democratic of you. Basically you want to screw over the users of the currency so you can mine and get rich... well Freicoin is not that kind of currency. The intent is there all you need to do now is get involved and ENSURE that the 80% is dispensed democratically. You are debating changing the Freicoin into something that it is not and that debate is over. It was over months and months and months ago. Move forward and find the best way possible to dispense the trust. What is so difficult about that concept? Furthering DEMOCRACY in currency not something that interests you? You would rather have a few pools of miners control it all right from day one and there would be little hope of reversing that. Look at Bitcoin now. Look at it very carefully. Freicoin is offering everyone a freedom to be part of the FFoundation and offer your suggestions. Much much more democratic.You are the one being blinded with greed... you want cryptocurrencies to be a way for you and your ilk to get rich at the expense of the currency community as a whole. Sad that you have no vision of the future of humanity, let alone the Freicoin.

And I really don't like the foundation.I am not a minority here, at least on the latter.It was posted in several place prior to it being launched as has been indicated many times already.
