This ETC shitshow is gonna be another excuse for dumping BTC. Isn't it. Just because BTC rhymes with ETC.

I don't know why ETC is not closer to zero than $5 right now.

I do not understand why you are quoting me > (BCH) ??

Are you kidding ??

The only thing that interests me is BTC.

bcash was for jbreher and the other goonies, not you.
there was a 51% attack on ETC, a shitcoin. no one even knew because they none of them run nodes

There once lived a bitcoin in Brasse
then Ver pulled Bcash out of it's ass
now Bcash is two
and no one knows who's who
but bitcoin will always have class

... flows a bit better IMO.

I sometimes trade BTC for other coins because they know how to party.
But i always return in Bitcoin's bed (sometimes broke and with a headache).

Well NiceHash attacks could well (should, even?) increase. It might not be too pretty, either - especially as it's POW coins that will take the brunt of it.  

OK, I was wondering how shitcoins might be pruned as, in a Darwinian way, it seems sort of inevitable when there are obviously way too many with no real use case, or any likely long-term value.  But the minimal money to wreck some fairly big name coins, rattles me a tad. It will not exactly be good news if it is widely perceived that POW itself is not safe.

I know BTC is a way bigger deal to attack and almost impossible, but...

I wonder if there's anything in Nicehash's terms about using their equipment for nefarious ends.

If you go after BTC you're going to get a ton of idle mining thrown at you rather like the end of Ready Player One plus killing a shitcoin means nothing. Attacking the foundation of it all would be very suicidal/ballsy.

In all honesty, I hope I am over-reacting.  NiceHash can't rent you enough for 51% on most coins (and certainly not BTC) and an hour wouldn't work, i would need to be sutained.  So it could just be the smaller shitcoins unable to respond (and lacking nodes) that are vulnerable...  Bigger coins can presumably rent or mobilse fan-hash to defend themselves, or adapt POW algos, too.

But big coins need to not fail - you can imagine the media scrum and the wailing and gnashing of teeth on the wires of the scammed.

If it's possible and there's money to be made, or grudges or perversions to be serviced, then someone somewhere will do it.

Yep, almost certainly.  The 'short and attack' might work profitably on rumour alone.

I think a cull is needed to pull resources towards the best projects, but that a gradual extermination of minor coins and a slower death for middling ones would be better than a general sudden carnage.

Too many pissy, crap coins is obviously an issue, but a feeding frenzy of bad, large rogue actors getting richer and bigger in a slaughter-fest might not be pretty.  

Or maybe I just need my medicine.  Nurse...?
