Why don't you limit posts in Altcoin section to > Sr. Members ?

That would be quite extreme. Especially given that the majority of "new" devs wouldn't even be able to post about their own coins.
The majority of new coins are scams anyways.
Something has to be done, I used to post and read a lot in the alt section but now it's not worth anyone's time, there is too much garbage. Too many bots and new users are in there trying to scam..Even though I have more value in alts than in bitcoin, I'd gladly support forcing the change.

I believe that this is the most visited forum on this site. Killing the alt sections can likely kill this website dramatically reduce the number of visitors. This is something that seem to be aiming for nowadays. So maybe they will.

Bitcoins have become too expensive. Most people aren't into cryptocurrencies because they think it's the future. They're into them because they think they'll make money. The BTC boat has sailed- there is still room for growth, in fact quite a bit- but most people are looking into altcoins to make the money they could have made as early adopters of Bitcoins.

Still do not see a single reason why a Home Miner should mine Bitcoins. It is not profitable any more. What's in it for him?
On the other hand big corporations with huge amount of Hashing power receive the BIG bucks.

The alt coins are more decentrallized than ever, affordable and could give you ROI.

Why would Betacoin dethone BTC? Looks like just another coin to me.

This is exactly what is wrong with people who mine and deal with these crapcoins. Cryptocurrencies are meant to be a revolutionary idea as a currency, not a get rich quick scheme.  How are Bitcoins too expensive? You can but $10 worth of Bitcoin if you want. You don't need a whole one. Do you really need millions of worthless shitcoins? And how is it too late to get into Bitcoins? If Bitcoin becomes even semi-mainstream those who buy Bitcoins today will probably become pretty well off.

Doge coin?




One thing I noticed recently, is the mass-spam of a coin here at the forums,
and amazingly, people seem to be supporting it and buying it.
Defied my logic and reasoning, and many other peoples too I think
it seems to be a corporate internet company with perhaps at least 100 staff that released that coin.
I cannot imagine how else it might have done what it has done otherwise.
I imagine a telemarketing office with over 100 dialers, except these people
are all on computers, and then there are programmers who pre-program everything
for the 'telemarketers', and they just sit there and the screen changes and up pops
some topic that they have to post in, within a certain amount of time,
and then they click the post button, but the program at this 'call centre' delay the output,
and randomize the timing of the postings, so that the posts come out randomly and throughout the day and
night, and these telemarketers do that for 8 hour shifts posting whatever pops onto their screen,
as the programmers have set up for them. I know, I used to work at a telemarketing office that was kind
of like that.
I think this internet company also has graphics people who work fulltime on pics for the coin,
and programmers and cleaning staff etc....

And they can just pump out the spam, 24/7 like that, and its all in a days work.
There isn't any way that other coins without the 100 person telemarketing office might ever compete with that kind of marketing. And the level of preparation and timing, indicates an organized company doing it.
Not only that, but I see they use subtlety and guile pretending to be something other than a coin, almost
like chinese people who pretend they don't know how to speak english when you tell them they owe you more money for the coffee they just bought off of you.

Anyways, I think that it may be upsetting some people that this coin, also has been trading millions of dollars in coins every day, and has a marketing campaign perhaps larger than bitcoin. In addition, I am thinking they have the techies working for them, to create every possible type of tech site that they want, in order to continue to mass spam.

you know the coin I am talking about. notice i didn't mention the name.

I think the original poster is actually most upset with that one coin. just ask him if I am telling the truth.

Now wtf ? Are you going to allow this to continue or what?

Its not fair to punish all the altcoins because of the mass spamming of only one coin.
Therefore, do something about that one offending coin, and leave the rest be.

I don't know everything  Smiley

Because you need profits in order to drive interest. That is not hard to understand. You think people would invest in stocks to not make any money? In a way cryptos needs to be kinda like the stock market in order to keep interest going. Without profits no one would mine, and without the mining you have the possibility of broken chains due to attack when someone gets thier panties in a bundle.

Cryptocurrencies may be a revolutionary idea, but the blind greed of humanity can crush even the most revolutionary ideas. People today just want to get stinking rich. People want to live like movie stars. Bitcoin may be a revolutionary idea, but we still don't know who will win, Bitcoin or greed.

This Alt Sub Forum has out lived its usefulness and needs to go.

Just look at the seriously unappreciative threads trashing Theymos and BCT for banning "Give Away" threads.

Hint:They want Alt coin people to go elsewhere!

It's time for Theymos to give them the nudge out the door by shutting down this section.

No-one needs your opinion. STFU.

I really like the altcoin subforum.  Having this subform with experienced bitcoin users means at least someone is around to call bullshit on totally bogus alts.  I think there is a lot to be said for having a good crypto community.

I hope Theymos does not destroy the altcoin forum, but his forum, his rules.

Yes this might indeed happen. Am I afraid? No. Why?
Because if a coin such as "Sexcoin", "DOGE", or something similiar dethrones BTC, then the crypto world is over.
If we keep this pace up, there will be hundreds and thousands of coins to go to, there won't be enough fiat for the right ones. Keep supporting crap GJ (Y).
