I own both mint and bc.
I think we should all get along and work with each other, not as concurrents but as partners.
Like bitcoin (black) and litecoin (mint)

I prefer black over mint tho because of the 0% premine and the 1% inflation.

Why did Hash choose MINT really
Because I asked Smiley Notice I could ask for BC too... I think MINT and BC should not fight at each other - I know several persons who are supporters of both MINT and BC. Still, I wonder how both currencies could walk hand in hand without being counter-productive. I welcome any suggestion (the "we don't destroy the environment' part could help, but won't suffice, I think).
And, no we did not bribe them. But you are free to disbelieve me.

(I don't remember someone at MINT ever accusing BC of bribing someone. How elegant from BC to accuse of felony)

Coins bribe exchanges and pools all the time, it isn't precedent setting.

As the owner of hashcows, mint came and asked.  I was thinking blackcoin might also be a fit, once any kinks were worked out with the process, but didn't realize it was such a one or the other decision from the blackcoin community.  

Fair enough, but its typically a safe bet people have gotten some kind of kickback. Its rare people do anything for free and I don't have any experience from mint or hashcows doing otherwise.

I also do not speak for anyone but myself.

To reference to your quote above, it's probably best to use the comparative analogy of gold (BC) and silver (MINT). Quite accurate given the parameters on both coins.

Once people become acquainted with alts via the press of national cryptos, this may end up leading them to discover the real virtual gold and silver in the crypto world (for POS coins, at least).

They naturally complement each other.

So as you say, 'its rate people do anything for free'...if the MINT crew paid me a bounty to add their coin, why would you consider such a payment a bribe, vs. paying for the work required to make it happen?  Its not like I had this feature ready to go and said 'pay me X coins to get yourself listed'. 

I thought of BC as I was building this feature, I was in at launch,  I've been idling in the irc channel since launch, have made some profits on personal trades with it.  Quickly losing interest in it though with such silliness.  oh well.

Hey, I'm all for hashcows offering BC & Mint payments. I have no Mint but don't have anything against it. I believe more in BC but the minute we start creating a little clique where we shout down everything else and think nothing else can compete is the moment we lose sight of how we started and the fact the fundamentals will eventually speak for themselves. Let the free market decide.

Edit: imo alot of people don't like the idea of billions and billions of coins
I believe this is more a matter of distribution. More coins means more potential for widespread adoption. I mean, if there are 100 000 people on the altcoin scene, that's the maximum. Compare with 7 billions (soon 9) inhabitant on this planet.

I agree with this fully, would I rather have a high value, low total number coin in the hands of a few, or a lower valued, high total number coin in the hands of the masses? I use the analogy of the American Gold Eagle coin versus the American dollar as my point. Which is used as the everyday currency? That's because it's in the hands of everybody and if the masses were to have a coin in their hands, this be the incentive for retailers, service providers and even workers to be paid in a digital currency. I was a BC miner and am still a BC holder and mining on the BlackCoin Pool beta, but my home coin is Nutcoin, and right now we are still very much in a distribution phase of the coin, it's been out for just under 3 months now and thankfully we've been flying low which is allowing for easy mining and a wider distribution of the coin before the whales take notice and try to grind it into the dirt. The wider the distribution of the coin, the harder it will be to manipulate the price and for the big holders to manufacture pump and dumps like we've been seeing with BC these past few days so the big boys can buy the coins the panic sellers are dumping at the bottom of the dumps at bargain prices. Hold your coins.

BC fundamentals did not change, the people you are arguing with are not BC ambassadors so you should not lose your interest in this coin because of it.

BC doesn't have the premine to bribe or pay or whatever you want to call it. I emailed multipool operators about the idea (maybe not hashcows, I don't remember now) before Radio even hit the scene.

What did I get? Zero responses.  Roll Eyes

Either way, BC and MINT can both succeed. All they have to do is keep ripping ideas off each other as we go and we can both become the BTC and LTC of the PoS market. Tongue

Business is business, coins want to be listed and added to pools and they pay in what they have. Bribe/payment/bounty, no reason to get caught in the silliness yourself.

BC will rub people the wrong way as that is the nature of this coin as it does not confirm to the "normal". BC can't be changed or stopped on any silliness or drama in forum threads.

BC will inevitably cause a lot of drama because of what is being set in motion will inevitably absorb many other alt currencies.

I have exactly this idea. Look for "project F" on mintcoin thread and you will have a teasing of what I am thinking about at the moment (hint: this is a bit different that what mintcoin holders think, I will announce it there later on).

Your implication was 'Why did hashcows add mint?  oh, they must have bribed them.'.  My only point is, all you had to do was ask, and I don't appreciate the implication.  Last I'll make any mention, as its not worthwhile.  

Happy Mining.

HE said he asked and got no answer.

Anyway, let us stop this. It will bing nothing good. We better stand together than tear each other apart.

I have nothing against Mintcoin but it just feels overpriced to me even at its bottom, for the same price I can buy a bigger stake of the total BC coin cap than I can MINT. Granted MINT does have the 20% interest but still, with BC taking off it made more economic sense to me to invest in BC.

Really doesn't matter if you are for or against, the market has spoken. BC has a larger market cap and greater volume, we are likely going to continue to grow bigger which will draw in more multipool miners.
