XVG should hit an easy 1 cent. Bigger question is 10-25 cents.

With >13 billion coins in supply and >16 billion total cap I'd say those prices are extremely difficult. Source: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/verge/

where is wallet .conf  and .dat in mac os ?


In Finder, go to the Menu > Go > Go to Folder, the enter "~/Library/Application Support/VERGE/"

You can put verge.conf and wallet.date files in there.

I don't mind running a full node but I am only connected to one peer and it's taking quite a while even on a fast laptop. I am not using a VPN. Is this normal? I am using the GUI on OS X.

I just found out about Vergecoin, apparently it used to be Dogecoin Dark and is based on DASH: https://www.cryptocompare.com/coins/xvg/overview/BTC

Does that mean Vergecoin has masternodes or no? I haven't seen any mention of them?

no, we are not based on dash at all. we use i2p and tor (ip obfuscation), not masternodes (centralization),

and we're multi algorithm PoW (x17, scrypt, blake2s, lyra2rev2, myr-groestl), instead of just x11 Proof of Work.

Ah ok thanks very much for clearing that up. So was Vergecoin ever DogecoinDark? Was that website just way off? If so this project kind of looks cool. How is the privacy and anonymity compared to Monero?

I guess they thought twice after lawyers agreed their antics were CMA violations Wink

http://www.coindesk.com/bitcoin-spam-tests-could-violate-uk-law/

I suspect the reason they are releasing the keys is to give themselves plausible deniability. This way they can still go ahead with the attack and just claim it was greedy bitcoiners scrambling over the coins.

what you use for it ? for website gambling bitcoin or what ?
interested but im confused.

You can think of the block chain as global dialogue with a long memory. Up until now it has mostly been used to communicate transfer of value in the form of bitcoins. But Bitcoin's block chain can also be used to store human readable messages.

For example it could be used as a notary service and as an alternative to patenting inventions.

Instead of writing down and idea and posting it to yourself you can type the idea in to a file, create a SHA1 hash of it and put it in the block chain. If at a later stage someone tries to steal your idea you can prove that it originated with you, or at least that you recorded it first.

And what about passports and birth certificates?

In many parts of the world this is a real problem, especially for girls in certain parts of India. You can use the block chain to document your birth, maybe cross reference it with your heart's ECG signature.

You could also use it for rights management of art works and of course smart contracts which is what Ethereum and others are trying to do.

I think we are starting to discover the true value of this invention now. It's not about money, it's about communicating meaningful action over time.

I just want to say how much I love your product. I have started putting my git commits in the block chain as a proof of existence experiment and recently at the World Crypto Network we put a hash of our Town Hall Meeting in there.

This is a very powerful idea. Thanks so much. I hope there will be updates.

Thank you for the positive feedback. My service was dying a while ago because I did not get any feedback but then someone had written an instant message with a donation of 0.5$ worth of bitcoins attached. This combined with your reply makes me optimistic about the service.

Latest developments (thanks to donations and people showing interest):
* optimized the decoder's HTTP queries by initiating cURL only once instead doing it for every query
* fixed a minor bug which made a wrong time to be written in the log at 100% CPU occasions
* CG Decoder now decodes randomly chosen blocks from the beginning of Bitcoin on its "free time"
* added a timeout of 30 seconds for the Decoder's HTTP queries (this should keep the service online more persistently)

Already working on:
* fix a bug in the user interface that currently obstructs the interface from decoding more messages after some time

everyone is welcome to write me their ideas for new changes either personally or in this topic

Oh you mustn't stop doing this, it's important. I am starting to think that this aspect of block chains is more valuable than the currency. Because it's not really money that has value, it's the work/movement it represents. If people can prove their work and have individuals independently verify it by performing checksums over the course of their life, then over time it would build up a picture of person's contributions to their civilisation. And not just the result but the evolution of their thoughts and plans.

A friend of mine made something similar for the alt chains but it was for Bittorrents: http://blockchain-link.com/

Money fills the gap between our purchasing decisions; our measures of sacrifice. But it dances with time too. Time and energy.

I will think more about this. Thank-you for your time and energy  Smiley

I have cited and will be referring to some of the comments on this thread in my show tomorrow on WCN. To see show prep notes head over to the /r/worldcryptnetwork page. I would be keen for any of your thoughts and insights.

15  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: How to make Raw Public Keys from a Bitcoin Address on: July 23, 2014, 10:37:28 PM
This is not possible, by definition.  The Base58 string is the hash of the raw public key, and all hash functions are designed to be impossible [infeasible] to reverse.  This is why they are commonly referred to as "trap-door functions."

If you are going to create a lockbox, you will need to get the full public key from the wallet.  If you have an address string, it has already been hashed, but the wallet always maintains the full public key.  You can right-click on an address in your wallet properties, or simply use the address book within the "Create Lockbox" window to fetch the public key from one of your loaded wallets.

Thanks so much for the quick response, that makes a lot of sense. Really enjoying testing out this feature.
16  Bitcoin / Armory / How to make Raw Public Keys from a Bitcoin Address on: July 23, 2014, 10:04:37 PM
Hey everyone,

Simple question:

Is there a way to make a Raw Public Key from a Bitcoin Address.

The Raw Public Key is used to make a Lockbox but I can't find a conversion tool anywhere to do it without using Armory itself. All I can find are ways to create the Hash 160. The reason I am asking is that I am wondering if it's possible for anyone to create a Lockbox for two different people with only their public keys in Base58.

And thank-you for such a great open source product.  Smiley

So, which is the topic of CoinSummit? I've read that the bitcoin elites will be all in this conference  Roll Eyes

They are mostly talking about it from a financial perspective. They are trying to get entrepreneurs and VCs together in a room.
