It is so futile to use reddit or ANY other means, besides this one, since only a very, very, extremely very few, reads any of it.... That would be number one. But even more importantly, what the fuck is going on with the inability to withdraw from the main exchanges? It's been MANY weeks and still no solution in sight? This is simply outrageous... Is the main developer going to answer this question and offer some kind of plausible explanation and, perhaps, a detailed what is being done to solve this of just continue avoiding it altogether?

This is a very interesting project going -was- in the right direction with the adoption of POSv... which is quickly becoming just another POS ... in the traditional meaning of the nomenclature...

This is a very interesting project going -was- in the right direction with the adoption of POSv... which is quickly becoming just another POS ... in the traditional meaning of the nomenclature...

Reddit is where the devs are posting, NOT here. If you had kept up on reddit you would know whats going on with the exchanges, you would know that poloniex is back on, bittrex is waiting for the upgrade error to go away and cryptsy, who the fuck knows. As far as I know there are other exchanges to buy/sell, your not stuck with only the top 3.

As far as pot becoming just another pos coin, I have to disagree on that one. The move to POSv2.0 was a smart one, despite the overall rate being 5-6%, the individual stake rate is looking to be about 15% while most coins are not staking. POSv2.0 splits the 5-6% of the total supply among the actively staking coins, the fewer coins active, the higher the stake rate for the coins that are.


TLDR; Reddit is the place to interact with the devs, we are waiting for cryptsy and bitt to get off their ass and the stake rate will likely always be higher than 5-6%, I estimate we bottom out and start averaging 7-8% minimum.

I know that Mintcoin had a much higher stake rate than stated as most were not staking, and eventually those that just were staking and waiting did *very* well with it.

This being the first Potcoin and having a good staking system like POSv, along with increasing legalization efforts make it a very strong contender long term, imho. Assuming they do well with marketing and making this a very stable functional coin over time.

(I am sure Cryptsy will get the wallet updated eventually, and asking them does help...)

PoS was meant to mean Piece of Shit... it seems you did not get it.

Other than that, I am probably thje staunchest supporter of PoSv in Pot Coin. Problem is that AGES continue going by, and the shit doesn't work because no one can stake since a huge portion of coins is stuck in the main exchanges and no one can withdraw them. This is just unthinkable. And even more so the no-explanation that has transpired either here -where EVERYONE is- of anywhere else, like reddit where half a dozen people or so visits. Devs should post where people go to know, which is HERE.

Then again, they should also come with ANTICIPATED solutions to clear to see problems, like this horrible transition but...

My understanding is that mintcoin started out with 20% or so as the rate and it declines every year. POSv2.0 is different than the POS algo that mintcoin is using, with POSv2.0 the stake rate is based on the money supply and shared with those actively staking and supporting the network, right now we have 30% of the supply actively staking, this means that we can expect earnings equaling about 15%/year before compounding which will bring it up to 16 or 17%. As more coins come online the stake rate for the active coins will drop but I doubt we will ever see more than 50-75% of the coins active at any given time.

Yes, I did get what you meant by POS. Did you not understand what "I disagree" means? It means I think your wrong. Where is this hostility coming from?
POTcoin is one of those times where you can either take a risk and be part of the revolution or lose big time, OR you can do nothing and be able to gloat if it crashes but be kicking yourself for not investing.

I will repeat, reddit IS where the discussion is happening. Maybe you haven't noticed but when someone from potlabs posts here they link to a reddit post. What does that tell you? Answer: The devs are active on reddit and not here. I will also repeat, its not the devs fault that cryptsy and bitt are being slow with bringing the wallet back online, they don't work for nor do they have any influence on how fast they get their wallets synced and back online. Bittrex should be up soon, they were told by the devs to resync from scratch to get rid of the upgrade error, that should have taken them a day or 2 so they should be back online sometime soon. As for cryptsy, who the hell knows, what I do know is that it is in the exchanges best interest to bring those wallets back online so that people can deposit/withdraw/trade and the exchanges can make their profit.

TLDR; Please calm the hell down and go smoke a bowl. Being angry with the world won't make things go the way you want them, you need to learn which battles to fight and which ones to just let go.

LOL, liking your TLDR's  Smiley

As far as resyncing to get rid of the error I am in the process of doing so myself. It has taken longer than expected. I'm on day 2 with about 14 weeks to go on a wallet in the top 200.

It didn't help that the bootstrap download on the potcoin web site was/is broken. I know you offered an alternative but I decided to just do without since I didn't have time to mess around with it any longer...just now almost back online due to a Windows 10 activation issue   Sad

Nowhere to be found in blockchain... gone to never never land?

Do what rdyoung said and you should be fine, I just sent you the amount you lost incase you can't get it back though Smiley

Thank you for the coins. The posting was more to make aware that something amiss was happening during the transition from PoW to PoS.  The tranction was small for me, but I am not sure if others are lost in the blockchain.

Since I have not even received a responce from the mining pool, should I mention who is not responding to keeping the sanctity of the coin and the blockchain.

Do we expose the non-responding party, or just drop it as ancient history?

I understand what "disagree" means, when it is written, not before. Especially when I believe we are all in agreement and, somehow, looking for a solution. That the Potlabs people may choose to post in reddit rather than here is just an exercise in absurdity for, again, extremely few people goes there so it is a BIG MISTAKE

Do they have other methods for contact? I would exhaust every possible method before calling them out publicly. Do they have a twitter, google+, facebook, etc? Maybe making a public plea for them to contact you without giving any details would get you somewhere, if/when that fails, then call them out and start a thread here and on facebook, gethashing might be another place to post about it, your likely not the only one they are ignoring if indeed that is what they are doing.

It is so futile to use reddit or ANY other means, besides this one, since only a very, very, extremely very few, reads any of it.... That would be number one. But even more importantly, what the fuck is going on with the inability to withdraw from the main exchanges? It's been MANY weeks and still no solution in sight? This is simply outrageous... Is the main developer going to answer this question and offer some kind of plausible explanation and, perhaps, a detailed what is being done to solve this of just continue avoiding it altogether?

This is a very interesting project going -was- in the right direction with the adoption of POSv... which is quickly becoming just another POS ... in the traditional meaning of the nomenclature...

Reddit is where the devs are posting, NOT here. If you had kept up on reddit you would know whats going on with the exchanges, you would know that poloniex is back on, bittrex is waiting for the upgrade error to go away and cryptsy, who the fuck knows. As far as I know there are other exchanges to buy/sell, your not stuck with only the top 3.

As far as pot becoming just another pos coin, I have to disagree on that one. The move to POSv2.0 was a smart one, despite the overall rate being 5-6%, the individual stake rate is looking to be about 15% while most coins are not staking. POSv2.0 splits the 5-6% of the total supply among the actively staking coins, the fewer coins active, the higher the stake rate for the coins that are.


TLDR; Reddit is the place to interact with the devs, we are waiting for cryptsy and bitt to get off their ass and the stake rate will likely always be higher than 5-6%, I estimate we bottom out and start averaging 7-8% minimum.

PoS was meant to mean Piece of Shit... it seems you did not get it.

Other than that, I am probably thje staunchest supporter of PoSv in Pot Coin. Problem is that AGES continue going by, and the shit doesn't work because no one can stake since a huge portion of coins is stuck in the main exchanges and no one can withdraw them. This is just unthinkable. And even more so the no-explanation that has transpired either here -where EVERYONE is- of anywhere else, like reddit where half a dozen people or so visits. Devs should post where people go to know, which is HERE.

Then again, they should also come with ANTICIPATED solutions to clear to see problems, like this horrible transition but...

Yes, I did get what you meant by POS. Did you not understand what "I disagree" means? It means I think your wrong. Where is this hostility coming from?
POTcoin is one of those times where you can either take a risk and be part of the revolution or lose big time, OR you can do nothing and be able to gloat if it crashes but be kicking yourself for not investing.

I will repeat, reddit IS where the discussion is happening. Maybe you haven't noticed but when someone from potlabs posts here they link to a reddit post. What does that tell you? Answer: The devs are active on reddit and not here. I will also repeat, its not the devs fault that cryptsy and bitt are being slow with bringing the wallet back online, they don't work for nor do they have any influence on how fast they get their wallets synced and back online. Bittrex should be up soon, they were told by the devs to resync from scratch to get rid of the upgrade error, that should have taken them a day or 2 so they should be back online sometime soon. As for cryptsy, who the hell knows, what I do know is that it is in the exchanges best interest to bring those wallets back online so that people can deposit/withdraw/trade and the exchanges can make their profit.

TLDR; Please calm the hell down and go smoke a bowl. Being angry with the world won't make things go the way you want them, you need to learn which battles to fight and which ones to just let go.


I understand what "disagree" means, when it is written, not before. Especially when I believe we are all in agreement and, somehow, looking for a solution. That the Potlabs people may choose to post in reddit rather than here is just an exercise in absurdity for, again, extremely few people goes there so it is a BIG MISTAKE

Here is one more place where we DISAGREE. Some here see reddit as the armpit of the internet, to me BCT fills that role perfectly. The reason the discussion is happening at reddit is because questions/announcements/etc don't get drowned out by posts by angry people such as yourself, IE, you don't have to cover 500 pages to keep up with the conversation.

LOL, liking your TLDR's  Smiley

As far as resyncing to get rid of the error I am in the process of doing so myself. It has taken longer than expected. I'm on day 2 with about 14 weeks to go on a wallet in the top 200.

It didn't help that the bootstrap download on the potcoin web site was/is broken. I know you offered an alternative but I decided to just do without since I didn't have time to mess around with it any longer...just now almost back online due to a Windows 10 activation issue   Sad

I am going setup the bootstrap to sync to another service as well, have it upload to box or bitcasa, etc. Box is probably the better choice as I have several 50gig accounts with them Smiley

What activation issues did you have with win10? My POS server refused to activate until they had reenabled the activation servers and I upgraded it to RTM.

Exactly, worth the risk. The competition also has issues and this was the first. If this coin is solid by the time some next bit Marijuana related events come around, almost certain to have some nice gains. If they actually end up getting used in a bunch of dispensaries, then the sky is the limit long term.

We are at a point in time where everyone wishes they could be after the fact. My mother talks about not investing in msft, apple, etc. Even with a shotgun approach to investing in crypto, as long as you keep your investments diversified, either you or your kids/grandkids have a very good chance at doing very well from the revolution that is happening right now.

We also happen to be at a very unique spot with respect to potcoin. As you point out the analytics line up in favor of potcoin doing great things value wise, so long as the stars align like they should. For those just tuning in, those analytics in short are, POT was the first "POT"coin, legal marijuana for both recreational and medicinal use is a niche market that could be worth billions if not trillions worldwide in very short order as the laws open up to allow it. As cryptoclub says, a couple of decent marijuana events where potlabs or others are pushing potcoin and we could see some decent investment. A couple other points that are tied together are the money supply and the inflation rate, POSv sets the rate at 6% if you stake 24/7, 5% if you open your wallet once in awhile to take some profits, BUT, the code is also set to share that entire 5-6% with all actively staking coins, this is a very strong incentive, IMO, for people to pull their coins off exchanges as well as keep their wallets running as much as possible. As for the supply, I believe pot happens to sit at a sweet spot supply wise, its enough to help mitigate bad actors playing with the price but its not too much to keep the overall value down over the long term.

Aside from a few small changes the devs need to make the code, IE the split threshold and preventing older wallets/other coins from connecting to the network, this coin will no doubt be solid as a rock as soon as bitt and cryptsy allow withdrawals. We are still behind where we should be with the blockchain but when we get up to speed the law of averages will make itself known and we will catch up soon enough.

You probably staked and that reset your weight. Your weight is a combination of the # of coins you have and their age.

I understand "I disagree" fine. When stated. Point being that what is the disagreement? You seem to state that the impossibility of withdraw from bittrex and cryptsy is entirely the fault of bittrex and cryptsy and my point is -and hence the "hostility"- that it is not so and the the devs are significantly -if not totally- responsible for such a terrible, terrible situation. They knew what was potentially happening for months. They did nothing to clear things out for a seamless transition with bittrex and cryptsy, thus provoking this "limbo"-kind of situation that is extremely negative for POT, both on the market side and the network side. AND, to make things much worse, they don't say anything about the progress (Huh??) of contacts with both exchanges to solve the situation.

And, again, it is HERE, a BTCTalk that people come for info, not to reedit or anywhere else. HERE. You bet I am quite hostile, as any significant holder of this coin should be, with this perfectly preventable absurd situation.

Once again your misinformed and plain wrong. The devs have no control over how long it takes for the exchanges to get their wallets synced and brought back online, or in the case of cryptsy for them to review the code before the resync and turn the wallet back on.  Again, if you paid attention to reddit or contacted the devs yourself, like I have, you would know what the deal is. I will repeat, the devs told bittrex to resync the wallet to get rid of the upgrade error. Maybe you are unaware of how long it can take to sync a blockchain from scratch without a bootstrap? It should take a day or 2, but it could take even longer. As for cryptsy, they are sitting on their hands like usual. I still don't understand how whats going on NOW is the devs fault. Yes, they borked the transition and if you had been on reddit and here you would have noted that I and others took them to task for it. However, the network is up and running on POSv and its working like it should, so again, how is it the devs fault that cryptsy and bitt are taking their sweet time?

Where are you getting this "months" thing? The official transition was supposed to happen 8 days ago, due to some borking of the wallet by the devs that was delayed by 3 days.
How is it the devs fault if the exchanges want to be cautious and wait for the blockchain and network to be moving smoothly before they enable their wallets? Do you expect them to risk customer funds by enabling a wallet earlier than they should? Who would you be blaming them if coins got sent into a blackhole?

Not sure why your all worked up and angry about cryptsy and bitt being offline, you can buy and trade pot at many other exchanges. From what I know, trex, polo, bleutrade are all up and working just fine. How much pot did you buy at 570 or so? That is the only reason your busting at the seams about this.
