A few hints for the OP:
The forum was also reachable under forum.bitcoin.org for some time before it moved to bitcointalk.org IIRC.
The "name" of the forum is actually "Bitcoin Forum", not "Bitcointalk" (see upper left corner of this page).

Also, it might be noteworthy that for some time, DDOSing this forum coincided with dumps on then dominant Bitcoin exchange MtGox. I.e., you could DDOS this forum, which in turn made the price of Bitcoin drop. Market manipulation wild Wild West Cool

I've edited the OP to include some of your comments and used part of your post as a quote on the Bitcointalk history of hacks and vandalism and Bitcointalk history of MtGox and how a Bitcointalk post caught the MtGox hacker. threads. It is great to have this type of input from people that were actually there when some of this history was being made.

We are surrounded by legends on this forum. Phenomenal successes and catastrophic failures. Then there are the scams. This forum is a digital museum.

You named that one wrongly.

Litecoin is a [SCAM]

He created it with claims it was GPU resistant and you will also find me posting in there about it
saying he used scrypt settings low enough to fit in a GPU.

The truth was the coin creator was GPU mining for a VERY long time while everyone else was CPU mining, until he released the GPU code
(if my memory serves me correctly - though it may not - it may have been as long as a year?)

I haven't been around long enough to know all the scandals and accusations. I tried to look for the post but haven't found it yet.

This is why threads like this are so cool. Some of the Legendaries like yourself share their knowledge.

I suppose the same happened with ASIC mining. Some of the ASIC resistant coins like Monero experieced unusually high hashrates months before the ASICs were announced.

Scrypt was also supposed to be ASIC resistant too but eventually they figured out how to build a chip for it. Some of the early ASICs were horrendously expensive but also were current for a long time (Unlike sha256 which seem to outdate quite quickly)

Nearly all Algos now have ASICs with bitcoin leading the way for the fastest and most frequent improvements. All predicted by Satoshi. The next stage is embedded chips in devices like routers (already happening)

Personally I think ASICs are a good thing for coin networks that can maintain a decent hashrate to secure it.

Wow, what an archive of knowledge, definitely going to get lost in this for the next few hours.

Wish I had some +merit left for you as I know this must have taken a long time to collate.

He paid 9BTC. That is, today it would cost almost 60k USD. This is cool as a curiosity, but it should never discourage using BTC for transactions like this. On the contrary, it should stimulate. But often cases like this or that pizza make us think several times before spending any BTC we own. This is sad

1 GRAM RHODIUM COIN = US $162,95
