One last question.

If your coin is the winner, do you as the creator of the coin lose all rights to it?  I for one would feel real physical pain to give up all the rights.  I would like to keep just a token percentage, like 1%, just 1% ownership in the actual coin itself would be plenty to me.  I think back to people who sold amazing logos for nothing and never thought to keep something small just as a token of their creativity.  Like the Nike Logo Phil knight bought from one of his accounting students at PSU, for something like $5.  What was that guy thinking, did he need that $5 that badly.  Why not say, ok, $5, but Ill always wanna be attached to it by just a small tiny token 1%.  that's neither greedy nor unfair to ask for 1% ownership in the coin itself.

We would be using up people's electricity uselessly.

It would be cheaper to buy the coins than to pay the electric bill for pathetically trying to mine them.

Because the difficulty would always be too high for them.

It takes special equipment, expensive equipment, to do that kind of just plug it in and it goes mining.

Even without "the masses" mining already mining gets to hard too fast.

GPUs are heading toward being obsolete, some folks are only even selling anyone else ASICs because it would be bad public relations to control more than half the network's hashing power.

You have totally the wrong idea about this mining thing. Better for the masses to have would be point of sales systems that are really simple or something like that. SOmething that makes it really easy for their business to accept cryptocoins.

-MarkM-



the point of sale hardware is almost all ready, as NFC has been going full throttle for over 3 years now and even most smartphones can now store financial data like crypto coins.  so that's not a problem.  people getting coins is the hard part.  and most americans will not wire money to Poland to vircurex when they read they were hacked and taken down twice in less than 2 months.  so how will they get their coins.  if mining is not possible then ok, I didn't realize that.  perhaps a better hardware solution will come up like butterfly labs or maybe that phase is all over with and people will have to wait for coinbase to start selling and trading coins and at that point americans will definitely buy coins like they do stocks, there's millions of speculative stock buyers in the US and it would only take a fraction of them to add digitial coins to their portfolios to move all coins up fast.  but for that you need a credible exchange and one doesn't exist, not good enough to handle that kind of volume and to not get hacked or crashed.  but the $5 million coinbase got just in the last week will make a huge difference in 6 months.  I opened an account and in under 10 minutes I was all hooked up with my checking account online and a free app which generates a new key code every 20 seconds.  nobody offers anything like that.  coinbase will definitely be the first top, big and premier tier one digital exchange so I can't wait for them to be really up and running trading every coin out there.  So I'm sad to hear the mining possibility is over cause that was the best and easiest way to get one's coins in the hands of the masses.  But that's ok cause that was just the first phase from a business standpoint.   Thanks for the correction, I'm still learning and there's a lot I don't know from a tech point of view.

Thanks for the new logo. When you settle on your final logo, please make a post to that effect, which I'll link to from the gallery. In that post, also include all your logos as separate images so people can see and perhaps build off any of your past images.

The community will end up choosing one logo out of the first fifteen put forth:

Could the developer please post or message me, or could someone who knows him ask him to, so I can see how much of the bounty he qualifies for:
http://devtome.com/doku.php?id=devcoin_bounty_now#exchange

He gets at least four shares for the basic exchange, I want to know what requirements he's met:

1) Strong passwords are required.

2) If there are repeated attempts to login, login should be slowed or a captcha should be used if it's not already.

3) Passwords should be hashed at least 10,000 times.

4) There should be an off site backup, at least 100 kilometers away from the site.

5) Deposits need at least six confirmations before they can be exchanged.

Can someone explain why DVC hasn't taken off like Namecoin did? I think it's an awesome coin with a great concept. It's on 2 exchanges, but it's still worth almost nothing (read: cheap!)

I think there are WAY too many DVC is the issue.

Also, Unthinkingbit, the developer of MCXNow is the user "coinhunter" on here. He goes by "realsolid" on mcxnow.com and can be seen in the chatroom semi-frequently as well.

That's what digital coins are.  The entire planet will soon find out about them and will want them but there's no way to get them cause mining now requires very expensive hardware but that's not the problem, 10% of Americans would spend the money, I did and I'm not even working right now, but the software, that's the real problem, it's so difficult with all the varioius pools and all the various mining programs to get the right one and it never works until you mess with it for days and most people just aren't good enough with computers or software to do that.  So then the only thing left is to buy coins on the exhanges.  problem with that is americans are scared people - they don't like risk.  most would never buy off an exchange like vircurex that's been attacked and down twice in 45 days.  And most americans won't buy coins until they feel it's safe.  

What has you fixated on mining, and thinking it is just a matter of it being made easier?   Did you learn about bitcoin from the weusecoins site?  I noticed it has had this effect on a few people   I know.


Quote
So why don't a few of you smart guys who are obviously good programmers write some code for mining programs that will work with any PC or at least a higher end PC.  It can't be harder than hacking into NASA or the pentagon.  laborsome, perhaps, but not more difficult.  I guarantee you the flood gates will open and people will easily pay $50 for a download they can trust or a disk with a software that makes mining easy.  and once you do that you have done 2 HUGE things:  a) you have brought digital coins to the masses for free (while making a killing off selling a $50 DVD) and b) you will make yourselves crazy rich cause as 5 million or 10 million mine your coins that will make them more rare and as more people mine them successfully they will brag about it and it will catch fire and this will lead to a massive explosion in mass acceptance as well as the price in many of the coins being mined.


Mining used to be very simple.   You just checked a box in the client for it.   It was taken out though, becuase it has become a negative value to try and mine on the cpu and most gpus.  Soon it may be all gpus.

Take a look at this graph..   http://bitcoin.sipa.be/

getting miners has not been a problem, hence little value to improving the ease of it.

Quote
Cause I really don't understand, you guys have a product and you want everyone to get a piece of it because that kind of popularity will lead to mass acceptance but when a normal person off the street tries to find these coins, any coins, in just a few days they find out that's it's practically impossible.  If you guys are real programmers and it seems that you are and good ones at that why in the world don't you have a download somewhere on this site for a miner which downloads devcoins?  A simple download where any computer illiterate guy can just push a button and that's it.  Why not make devcoin the first easily mined coin cause right now there is no such thing.  you guys might think it's easy but in the real world in every job I've had I was considered computer literate and quite often I was the guy in charge of training the other teams on new proprietary software because I leanred it the quickest and let me tell you, it's been a month and this stuff is still confusing to me and out of all the coins I tried to mine I was only able to mine litecoin which was a failure.

Most people are going to have to find another way than mining to get their coins.   You said your litecoin mining was a failure, not because you could not mine, but because you did not get enough reward.  The reward is going to go down more as more people try and people invest in dedicated minters.

Quote
Devcoin's problem from a business standpoint is that it has too many coins and this kills the value and this is only going to get worse.  How long would it take to write a program for an easy to use miner and just put it out there.  once it gets popular you can even charge for it.  The more people own devcoins the less devcoins are floating around, and the more
It would take almost no time to reactive the option to mine.  It would be worthless though to the people who use it. They would see the same thing you did,  little return and a higher electric bill.

I have the same question: what is a share in round 23?
Thankx in advance for the answer!
293637-ish DVC
Which is 613 (613,000 words) divided into 180 million. So 180,000,000/613=293637
And I guarantee it'll be even smaller next round.

Here's the link:
http://devtome.com/doku.php?id=daily_script_results

This is what it said:
Original Word Count: 554,969 Total Word Count: 613,324 Total Weighted Word Count: 572,523

And I did the math for "worst case scenario".
