OK... from these first fork attempts we'd hit an almost 100% fail score.

Namecoin: Not a currency. Currencies are not attached to any particular service, they're meant to be neutral.

Solidcoin: its developing team just outscored all the possible fuck ups one can go against! From having the blockchain hacked, to input a proprietary license over a forked MIT licensed software, to do a sort of "restart" with 1 million pre-generated (why not generate 100 or 200 million instead? It's just a number.). Also trust-chain is broken. Who tells us if CoinHunter finds a bug in the future and jumps to "solidcoin 3" or "solidcoin 4"...? Impossible to have such postal developing projects! Solidcoin must be deemed a Russian Roulette.

i0coin: Dead on the way. It was just a joke about ixcoin. Returned but not much use.

IXCoin: 1 fuck up in the account with two "mandatory updates", still better than solidcoin but for how long?

Let's see what future brings and forget about those fails.

Sorry, I don't even give a F for your currency to even look at it. The previous 4 fuck ups were enough for me to stick to bitcoin ALONE for a (good) while.

You offend my feelings Smiley

Geist is notably more innovative than i0 (not a high standard to live up to, but still) and also the "old" solidcoin (also, more secure than old solidcoin Cheesy )

1) It's also a statement that the network can be started with X pre-mined coins. This X can then be arbitrary - let's say "the community" decided it should be 2 millions instead.

2) Listen to half-dozen of forumers is far from "a global Solicoin users' votecast".

3) If I get it right, the issue with ArtForz was that he said to found a bug, CH told him to "take a hike" and... well... he took.

4) Claims like "we decided to switch of the blockchain" is the same as saying that solidcoin has what bitcoin hasn't: A CENTRAL entity able to pull the plug on it. For that I will use Euros or USD, much more trustworthy than forumers with nicknames. Well... by making it proprietary CH already stated he "owns it", so let it run as his scam and let whoever wants to fall for it... but by such rules and capabilities, solidcoin becomes nothing but a utter scam.
