The Satoshi code base is pretty awful, I think most would agree.

Given that bitcoin has been at 5-10bn marketcap and that it's not yet "broken" by some catastrophic flaw after 5 years running, most would say it's pretty good at what it set out to do.

Bytecoin's code base though has yet to pass the test of time.

It's open source though and thus anyone can vet it, unlike DRK's anonymous components, correct? Or is all of DRK's source code 100% available and online for anyone to check?

is there something wrong with the pools? I mined yesterday with 10 hash each core, 4 cores=40 hash steadily, but today(more like tonight), its getting really though I think... is diff changing, getting harder to mine? Or just some config? I had 4 cores running at 20 h/s some point instead of 40

btw, for fr pool, i5 3350p should be considered medium cpu I guess?

welcome to yesterday's tomorrow, hashrate doubled  Lips sealed

well yeah I get that, but something doesnt feel right: I restarted all my daemon/bats w/e, including gpu miner(ccminer), and I am currently running 2 instances of simpleminer:



I have steady rate of 50h/s(dropped to 43 actually) now with just 2 instances, I had 25 with 3 before I did this. Currently mining in fr pool. I am showing you this picture, most times simpleminer gives me these lines, some times it submits shares successfully. I have also noticed that I havent received any reward today(I did receive ysterday). whats going on :/

edit: h/r fluctuating idk rly

So the price of these has gone up 5 times higher than a couple of days ago when I bought in.

Do you think these are worth holding onto or not?

Debating whether to sell for profit or to hold. My gut says this could be the next DRK meaning this coin is heavily undervalued right now.

Can I ask a non-troll question? If this tech is 2 years old, why is it only surfacing now? Was it kept hidden intenionally and if so, why? Surely it must have been beneficial to have it surface 2 years ago?

If it is 2 years old, it was kept hidden intentionally. But, It is unlikely that it is 2 years old.

Cloning it is easier than vetting it and I doubt many have done these checks since it's been under wraps.

Darkcoin is based on Bitcoin code base, so in the sense of monetary integrity it should be as sound as Bitcoin. If Bitcoin fails, so will all Bitcoin-based clones.

In terms of anonymity, DarkSend is not yet opensourced but it'll be open after V1 is finalized. Then it goes for V2, which I suspect will again be closed source until finalized.

You can come up with a few answers. I don't think you'd be surprised to hear that some of them venture quite far into the conspiracy theory realm -- essentially plans focused mainly on enriching a few entities. The answer you might get from Monero developers is they wished to put a fair cryptonote based currency in the spotlight for everyone to enjoy, because the technology has promise.

polish a turd


There are few things funnier than a non-entity calling names on the event of the century.

When 2101 rolls around, here are the stories from the previous 100 years  that may eclipse bitcoin:

proof of extraterrestiral life
a female president
a black president
a nuclear war
an human ectogestation
quantum computing
matter from energy
10,000 deaths from an accident at a nuclear generating station
the emergence of China, Cuba, and North Korea from communist gangsterism


Some nobody dumbass saying "polish a turd" about bitcoin will not be one of those stories.  It will be a forgotten laughable post on a forgotten forum populated by self-important dumbasses who say things like "polish a turd".

Yeah, altruism is always the main motive of clone coins...

With the exception of Bitcoin (and DOGE which was made for the lulz), I don't think many people created coins for the good of humanity.

Regardless of motivations, a cryptocurrency with privacy protections is essential to the survival of any kind of human dignity and freedom.  BCN premine was indecent.  Monero fixed that crime.  I am glad of it, for myself, and for my progeny.

[RPC1][sock 764] some problems at write: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host:10054

is the message I get when I run the save_bc command. the "save" command works fine.

I wonder, is this because I already saved the blockchain once?

Is there anything unique about Monero? It seems to have just added cryptonote and that's it. What's to stop 50 coins doing the same and having better marketing?

There are already 4 Cryptonote coins: https://cryptonote.org/coins.php

There seems to be a big danger of dilution without some unique developments.
