kinda pleased i never even looked into Rucoin.... sounded fishy and Ru-bish if there was premining and code that doesn't complie or avaliable in the github.... take note on Crazy Rabbits advice and only run on separate machines not containing your important wallet.dat files for other coins

Kind of amusing that it has trading to BTC-E built in.  Wonder just how many people will be dumb enough to allow a coin that was admitted to be a scam have access to trade on their BTC-E accounts.

Looking in my crystal ball I foresee some highly amusing "told you so" posts in a few months time - probably just after some new version of the client is released (binary only) and installed by gullible idiots who have let their guard down afer a few months of it not doing anything nasty to them.

Sooo you are telling us that you trust btc-e to trade your coins, and nothing makes you think who is behind RUC-(the coin you do not trust)? I do not fully trust it either... Who admitted that this coin is a scam? Balthazar (or sth like that), right? Isnt he a mod on btc-e? I think he is Wink

I cannot accept that this is a scam, as from the first day exchange re-opened there i made bitcoins from it. It may be some crazy malware or has a backport or something but wouldn't some antivirus detect it? or a firewall wouldnt detect weird net action from it?

NO one says it is a scam. It could be one though.

Translation of your post: "Please scam me"  Cheesy

what I understand is:

they still did NOT show a code.

- RUC client is not complying to licence of open source code, using some of it and not providing source.
- RUC client can do weird things to your PC without you even know it.

well, should'n we make a sticky warning : "do not launch rucoin client" ?

RUC Devs:  SHOW THE CODE !!!  and prove us wrong.

sure, like???

Post proof too Wink

Either you are stocked up on litecoin and you are afraid, or you simply want to mine RUC alone Wink

Me, personally, have had no problems with "rucoin client" ever, as many others would tell the same

It IS profitable and it IS better than other altcoins, get over it mr "sticky warning".

That's not true, because BSDL allows distribution of binary forms without source code.

Not publishing the source code violates the MIT license I had thought, as LukeJr. used it to DMCA takedown solidcoin back in the day

It also violates the Berkeley DB license

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=57437.0

RuCoin binaries are thus liable for DMCA takedown at any time

Please read this articles on wiki before believing someone.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BSD_licenses
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIT_License

Quote
It is a permissive free software license, meaning that it permits reuse within proprietary software provided all copies of the licensed software include a copy of the MIT License terms.

If someone says another about BSDL, MIT or other permissive licenses, he's wrong or lying. Roll Eyes

And this also may be helpful:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permissive_free_software_licence

It also violates the Berkeley DB license
Yes, that's correct. So, there are reasons to remove BDB from bitcoin, and migration to BSD-licensed LevelDB currently in progress.

P.S. DMCA supporters are enemies of your freedom. I'm glad to see that European governments did not have any such laws at that time.

Solidcoin removed the copyright notice of the original Bitcoin devleopers and changed the license. That was the objection from LukeJr IIRC.
