Hello,

I find these things very interesting so I can not help but create a poll as my previous poll has had an acceptable success.

Perhaps it may help shed some light as to why this is happening, or may otherwise yield at least somewhat interesting results. Smiley

The poll will run for only 7 days, so that the data collected will represent only the present time, and so that it will not get messed up in the future if opinions change.

There are more great coins in the pipeline...
Most of the top Devs are on their 3rd or 4th coin.

The coin that eventually gives LTC a run is not on the radar yet.

Nothing is happening with it. There is no interest anymore.

People may have realized that the search for sequences of prime numbers are as relevant as find sequences of zeros in a hash.

add the reason "it's a CPU coin".

It was a mixture of the fact that you had to look for new miner releases daily and had to tune arcane parameters all the time  the fact that you are basically competing with botnets and cpu server farms which are still more numerous than GPU farms and you have the reason why a cpu coin will have difficulties maintaining value.

Also, for parameter tuning, instead of collecting parameters for different CPUs somewhere (as is the case for GPUs in litecoin/bitcoin wikis, but probably took some time until those were available as well), it was every greedy man for himself. Mining primecoin was a lot more work than any other recent coin, while you were competing with botnets.

all botnets do is dump immediately, the same as ASIC miners do for bitcoin since their chips are worth their price in metal otherwise.

nothing to do with the coin once you have it really, gpuminer or not won't make any difference untill we can start using the coin for more things.

The poll option "The fact that Mtmlr's GPU Miner does not work" implies this.

"more sellers than buyers "

To the poll ?

That's what the question is about, though. Of course that is why it's gone down. But WHY are there more sellers than buyers? That is the question.
