I have been trying to explain but whenever i say something someone will try to pick a fight.
Does it have major differences to Bitcoin atm except the mining algo? No.
Will it have in the future? Yes.
Why not implement them now instead of at a later stage? You have to start from somewhere familiar and there are also numerous applications, clients, functions and addons that have popped up lately (for example Electrum) that its really hard to select one and go with it. Also time plays an important role in this. To fully develop a working client like i and others would like it to be, might even take a year or more.
Why dont you just use Bitcoin or build on top of it? I do like Bitcoin a lot but i dont see it fulfill some very important needs. Right now i can only use it to speculate and you can see that it is a speculative tool on your own. No need for me to tell you that.
Lets all think of PayPal. Why is PP accepted everywhere? Because it is user-friendly and simple to use both from the merchant's side and the consumer's.
Now Bitcoin could become a decentralized PP in terms of having all the advantages (or most of them) of PP but also being decentralized which is great.
Now ask yourself.
Has it become something like this or at least get close to it? No.
Will it become? I dont know.
Who decides what it will become? The core team who is developing it. Dont tell me that you actually have a say in what the client is or is not.
Is it user-friendly? Hmmm. Somewhere in the middle between Yes and No.
Could it be more user-friendly? Sure.
Would a regular average user benefit from a very simple tool that works like PP but is also under his own control? Definitely.
Would a merchant or a consumer or a business owner benefit? Of course.
Why doesnt Bitcoin fulfill this need? Probably because it might do it in the future but right not is focusing on other stuff.
Are there numerous functions on top of Bitcoin that make it better than just the client itself? Yes. Numerous.
Why are they not implemented into the client (apart from the technical side)? Maybe different goals.
Does Bitcoin has a Paper where the next steps that will be taken are clearly outlined? I am not aware of one.
There are numerous other questions.
The important thing is that the more alt coins fail the more stronger Bitcoin gets. So whenever someone like me or someone else posts an announcement on a new coin dont go crazy.
Lastly as i said in the beginning of this thread, why not be friends? Maybe in the future there is a function, utility, service developed in the RLC network that is good for BTC use and is adopted.
Also as you might have understood although the client might be really close to the BTC client, the economics behind RLC are different and there are some new ideas implemented. So look at this project as a way to research the side of economics rather than the pure source code and i am pretty sure that there will be important things that will come out of this.
Closing, i would like to say for once more that a DIFFERENT target/goal/aspiration/etc makes a DIFFERENT coin since the approach as well as the execution will be different.
2. The mining algorithm is CPU-friendly for now. GPU will be available at a later stage. Also mining is done only through the official client at least for the initial stages.
What!?! You are going to change the algorithm after
you launch? Why?! Just write it correctly before you launch.
How is this different from Bitcoin? How is this any different from Solidcoin? Does Realcoin have any advantages
over either of those other two?
You keep saying "average internet user" and "user friendly" but I do not see anything backing this up? How is it user-friendly? Instead of average, do you really mean "naive chumps"? That is what it sounds like to me.
You still have not said anything that demonstrates any value for this new coin over the dozen of other alt-chain attempts. Except you have wasted/spent $10,000 developing it.
