Hm, are there connections between Maxcoin and Quark Huh
I thought those 2 coins didn't like each other very much Cheesy

Since Maok joined it looks like Quark copies some projects from Maxcoin:

1.
The cryptobullion project at startcoin:
http://www.reddit.com/r/maxcoin/comments/29ebpl/maxcoin_silver_cryptobullion_startjoin_project/
(initiated by mako (or better known as mr solomon at maxcoin:P) http://forums.silverstackers.com/topic-57342-startcoin-silver-cryptobullion.html
And Quark also did an attempt:
http://quarktalk.org/threads/cryptobullion-minted-coins.236/

2.
And a new forum for Maxcoin; MaxTalk.org
http://www.reddit.com/r/maxcoin/comments/220xsd/ann_opening_of_the_official_maxcoin_community/
Didn't Quark also have its own forum what was the name.... QuarkTalk.org Cheesy


C'mon, I know you can come up with better conspiracy theories than this, I've heard some of them before.

Silvermetal, sorry, I think you´re getting lost in conspiracy theories here. Point is, there are dozens of forums that called themself fancycoinametalk.org, because btctalk. Same with the silly cryptobullion stuff. If you want to criticise, you should better focus on facts that you can prove. What you present here are anything but correlations -  and they are very very loose.

The points in low hashrate has been the subject from as long as I found out about Quark, back in June last year people were worried, now again you are worried(why I wonder as you're not involved in anything anymore)

I answered that question several times. I put some money and a lot of time into Quark, I helped building up the community, that´s why I am still related to it in a way. When I look back at what happened in this time, it is obvious that issues were silenced by a cheering fanboys and people were listening to charlatans like DigitalIndustry. This way newcomers like me had the impression that everything was fine when actually anything happened in terms of development and community building. With recreating the Foundation we tried to work against that. We used time, brain and money to bring stuff forward and to be honest with the weaknesses that Quark has due to is centralization and low hashrate. Unfortunately this endeavor failed for several reasons, including tricking the community with B9/Mimiccoin by DigitalIndustry, McPhervi but also the active and trustful developers MaxGuevara and Shakezula. This alone should be enough to be sceptical when it comes to Quark. I prefer to talk about those weaknesses, so newcomers will now what they are buying than not talking about any of this stuff at all. Anyway, same as you, I am a free human being and I am not spreading false information, so I should ask you in reverse, why are you bothering?


Quote
if you bother to read I said I am concerned but thing is that, the coin pool or anyone who gathers sufficient mining power can only do as much harm as delay transactions.

If the network is down e.g. because the pool went offline it is really easy to find the checkpointing node. Once you know which one it is, you can DDOS it and there you go automatic checkpointing. So, no, delaying is NOT the only thing that can be done - and there are many people outside who like to do this stuff just for fun. Just look at the Auroracoin fork. It doesn´t make sense at all, but yeah, someone did it.


Quote
an army of thousands of botnets (...) that pool has a solid majority, more than 50% which is enough (not 99% like you exagerate )

Thousands of botnets? You don´t need thousands of botnets. Please check out the numbers, I also linked some on Reddit. The Top10 miners at coinmine.pl own more than 50% of the global hashrate. You can compare the daily Hashrate with the pool hashrate and will find that most of the time it is at 98-99%. Why do you think Max is asking Quarkers to spread their Hashrate to other pools?

Quote
Once quark or any crypto currency gathers more adopters you will see or have seen in other crypto currencies that the hashrate will also raise because the value will raise and so on.

That really doesn´t matter as long as it is centralised at one pool.

Quote
Thing is once Quark is a worthy currency for real use, if ever, will be strongly protected by the decentralization in mining power.

Yeah, sure...why? Even Bitcoin was centralized at GHash.io with over 50%. There is no incentive not to mine at GHash - there is only a high incentive in telling others not to mine there. Your mining results will always be better at the largest pool and that´s particularly why there is no reason to believe that real decentralization will ever take place, because solo-miners are always in large-slight disadvantage. Quark is not the only currency who deals with this issue. Most PoW coins do and there have been LOTs of discussion how this problem can be solved, but none as far as I can see with Quark but your mining contest (a fancy thing for the moment, but doesn´t solve the issue longterm).

Thanks! The 3D Printer we are showcasing on the website right now is a very early prototype of the ISG 11 that we are releasing in 2 weeks.

We will have the chance to keep you updated on that matter, but we are releasing a brand new line of printers with very high print quality.

i'll be interested and check it out for sure - i know many people around the free world are interested in 3D printing.  : )

Hey, quick update, we have officially launched at Shopify www.ISG3D.com and the ShapeShift Button is now working to pay using QRK on the 3D printing webstore! We are releasing a new 3D printer in 1-2 weeks and more products will be uploaded soon!


3D Printing and Bitcoin, that's pretty cool.

At the current hashrate of the coin , how many i7 processors it will take to do a 51%?

Few days ago you would have needed only 80M to perform a 51% attack, if someone had really been interested to knock down the network he could do that by temporarily ordering a few number of virtual machines. It would probably have costed less than 1000$. Even that was too much to perform an attack, noone cares.

The Hashrate hasn´t been that low since December 2013, still in December the situation was better because it wasn´t that centralized - even though it was really bad:

As you can read from this post the Hashrate of Coinmine in December 2013 was about 90%. Today it has 98.96% with 406M Hashrate (don´t believe it? click here). There is basically noone solo mining. Quark IS coinmine.pl.

Waiting for Digitalindustry or Hillux to come and claim that Quark is the best and most decentralized currency.

I´d be interested in an explanation how Quark could ever get away from being centralized at coinmine.pl



bump

congrats, looks like this coin has 2 full-power forks now:

https://www2.coinmine.pl/qrk/index.php?page=statistics&action=blocks

http://yaamp.com/site/block?id=305


Yaamp difficulty is 0.9, everybody else's difficulty is 900. Yaamp probably hasn't upgraded to the latest version.

yes they were on the same fork with the rest of us http://yaamp.com/explorer?id=305&height=1623695 before 11th january, right about when we first had our first report of this issue: http://quarktalk.org/threads/mining-drop.1059/

They need to upgrade to 0.9.2.3 version which is the most popular at the moment: https://bitinfocharts.com/quarkcoin/ with 40% nodes using it, or at least downgrade to 0.8.x version

Where are the pool owners of yaamp ??

There is a lot of petty nonsense on this thread but I want to update about my recent Quark testing on the 'Old' 0.8x client.

I bought some Quark on Cryptsy and sent to an android wallet on the 10th of Jan. At first I thought the wallet did not work but then I chose the option to 'Reset Blockchain' in the settings menu. After waiting a considerable time for this reset then the transaction went through. So the android wallet lists the compatibility at 0.8.3.15 and above, and as far as I know, resetting the block chain did not put the wallet on the new 'fork' and make it compatible with the new 0.9x client.

To check on this, I sent some Quarks just now from my Mac client (running 0.8.3.22) and the android wallet received them just fine.

So why would I update to the new client that is running a new fork? Cryptsy must still be on the 0.8x client, the android wallet works on this 0.8x client, as does my older Mac client, if the new 0.9x client is compatible with these then it isn't a hard fork?

If you look to the post history of hilux74 and willow it is not a surprise that they are sockpuppets.; zero contribution to any Quark related projects, only active when somebody post something "negative" about the coin (eg when I post something) to create confusion, and there is never anything wrong with the coin. not very realistic...It would be interesting if willow is Max Smiley.

Edit: Lol (see posts below).

hilux, hilux you'll never learn... https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=260031.msg9895334#msg9895334

And everybody knows who "digitalindustry" is : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=781954.0 Therefore it makes no sense to react on his message below.

And Max....he created at least the following coins: JouleCoin, Myriad, Zeta, Mimic, Quark, skeincoin, chaincoin and is involved with "woodcoin" (created the wallet).
with the following accounts: "WillowRosenberg", "JohnJoule", "Rolihlahla", "Red Kendra", "Giskard", "8bitcoder" and "MaxGuevara"

Actually my post history in Quark and many other coins speaks for itself, pretty obvious I'm nobodies sockpuppet, and your continued claims to the contrary always just continue to erode your own foundation to others.

A better and more valuable question one should ask themselves is: What positive influence has Silvermetal provided to Quark or any other coin?  The answer is NONE.  Look at his post history, all his posts are negative and involve conspiracies.  There is no personality in his posts at all...just an actor playing their scripted part.  All he is is a negative pest like a mosquito.

What's next for you silvermetal...discovering that both Bitcoin and Quark have a blockchain...therefore Satoshi is Adam who is DigitalIndustry who is Maok who is Me who is married to Coinmama who's midget 10ft tall lesbian son is Quarkfx...it all makes sense now!!!!!!!!!!!!1 

In this crazy world of unexpected things happening it is nice to know that we can all trust in one constant...that silvermetal gets stupider and stupider each day.



that is worth quoting. ha ha.
