Bitcoin is looking like a failed hashcash fork.

Needs a ranking list.
Ixcoin or SC, which failed more?

It's a tough call, Ixcoin failed from the start, while SC looked pretty promising for a while but got ground into said ground by the originators actions.

Or is btc the largest fail because people think it works and will actually become a useful currency?

Then create the thread "Howto: create a failed hashcash fork" in the Alternate cryptocurrencies subforum of hashcashtalk.org

I don't know whether any of you guys have noticed but the only thing that gives any of these cryptocurrencies ANY value is FAITH. Every silly argument on forums or IRC is reflected in the respective exchanges.

Bitcoin is a great idea.
Solidcoin had some changes i enjoyed.

How about a truce and a little bit of co operation?

and most importantly

- change the license to your own proprietary one

(this goes for any failed FOSS fork)

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

sooner bury, xcoin will do little more convulsions before death a few day (after 20055 block).

but solidcoin devs gracefully shoot yourself in the foot.

If the creator made a ton of (real) money, is it actually a failure?

Was the graceful part the trolling/taunting the users or the "license" terms he put into his latest release?

lol

Here's a good way:

1. Post new cryptocurrency idea
2. Tell miners and speculators they have no control of the currency
3. Huh?
4. Obscurity.

After it fails, you can call it a asspenny and trade it for nothing in asspenny-exchange

While reading what I wrote, use the most friendliest and relaxing voice in your head.

The graceful part was provoking ArtForz into proving the chain had a flaw. Smiley

1. Pre-mine coins
2. Be uber arrogant
3. Say you are way better at coding than the entire Bitcoin dev team
4. Say your new fork will kill Bitcoin because it fixes several Bitcoin bugs
5. Spread some good Bitcoin FUD


Winrar so far:
  • Ixcoin
  • Solidcoin
I just look forward to less Solidcoin astroturfing on the forums until the next pseudo currency scam captures everyone's attention.
Huzzah!

A. Create a bitcoin copycat fork, with just parameter altered - no need to use this, can just use Bitcoin itself.

Not helping either, but mostly irrelevant as long as (A) is met:
1. Pre-mine coins
2. Be uber arrogant
3. Say you are way better at coding than the entire Bitcoin dev team
4. Say your new fork will kill Bitcoin because it fixes several Bitcoin bugs
5. Spread some good Bitcoin FUD
Fixed that for you
