Just bought another modest amount. Traded a couple of good lots for small profit earlier too. We might be in a tight channel for a little while.

That's exactly what I was thinking. I remember him too. He was alright ol' coine.
talk about winding back the VRC clock their.

lol that just shows how long i've been around lmao
He started the topic on Dirac so maybe it's bryce and he's no longer interested in this coin?  Or someone close to him that has equal thoughts on the subject... that's my guess anyway

If it was Bryce, that would explain why he was sooooo vocal about Vericoin hack

I've got another idea to help spread Vericoin to new users. A referral program.

The fact of the matter is that people need incentives to actually actively tell people about Vericoin, and to encourage them to download the wallet, and BUY Vericoin.

What better way to do this than to reward people who actually get new users to start using Vercoin, than to reward them with Vericoin?

Now, for this to work it would go hand in hand with Verification, this would prevent exploitation, as only once a new user has been verified, would rewards be paid to the referrer.

Thoughts?

sounds like a government plan, how about for people that would not want their name on another database ? That wouldnt make it very fair. Sound like 2 separate ideas, 1 for verification/reward and another referral /reward

Interesting idea...I like it!

I like it but as a secondary step to verification. Much more secondary.

Truth is that VRC should not be desperate about new users/investors. That should be part of a general strategy of much, much wider proportions, but yes, why not, a referral program is advisable and quite interesting. But first we have to have VERY CLEAR, where VRC is going. Which are -if they remain- the primary objectives and what will be the path, regardless what the markets do.

That is not to say that flexibility should be abandoned, on the contrary. The coin will continue suffering growing pains for sure and devs should adapt to whatever new challenges/circumstances, but the general vision should remain above all. That's the anchor of the stakeholders. That's the support thjat will stay through thick and thin, regardless what the price of the coin is.

Or, maybe, people who don't want their names in another data base, should perhaps consider investing in Darkcoin instead. It would seem a more appropriate fitting... Or any of teh gazillion coins that offer anon features already.

I think we shouldn't get ahead of ourselves...

We should be sticking to the main idea of verified transactions and anonymous transactions

VeriSend = Verified transactions in the blockchain, one wallet linked to a Verified Identity and a Vericoin ID Number...maybe some kinda of rating system for trusted users. Maybe verified users would gain more interest, and incentive to be a trusted user.


VeriShield = Completely Decenterilized Anonymous transactions...can create as many wallets as needed.

Again ZERO transaction Fees...


Also Vericoin needs to be as secure as humanly possible...the wallet needs password to send, 2FA, multisig. Encryption up the wazzzoooo

Glad to hear it =)

I feel that currently the only people involved in Vericoin, are crypto traders. While that's to be expected currently as it is in its infancy, if it is to ever achieve its goal of being a mainstream currency, it needs to be pushed on to new users. Or even sooner, pushed on to current users of crypto!

For me, I'm not going to tell my fellow crypto enthusiast, that they should look at using Vericoin for their online payments because it is accepted anywhere Bitcoin is =/ That just wont fly. Faster transactions times are great (it is really great BTW), but people need an incentive to actually use things like Veribit and to encourage new users to do the same.

Now the tricky part is to balance the reward against the longevity of the coin. Obviously you don't want to be causing excessive inflation to the coin due to the reward program. So how could it be achieved?

As I said, it is optional. For those who don't want their names listed, don't get verified. Simple as that.

My point was that the verification system could be used to easily prevent exploitation of the referral program. If people are afraid of getting their names listed against their transactions for fear of government tracking, then they simply wont get any referral rewards.

Absolutely agree with the security necessity. passwords, 2FA, encryption, possibly even email verification for larger transactions. The more the better IMO.

The devs should also rename these options to make them more comprehensible to the average person and beginner.

Anonymous transactions should be called VeriAnon.

And the verified transactions should be called VeriFied.

This would add to the first time usage functionality of the wallet.

and if it's going to be called VeriAnon, it would have to have high standards in the anonymity department.

If Doug mentioned that he has ideas on how to make the best anon, then why hold that back? And when it's done, call it VeriAnon.

I like the names, and the referral program could be called VeriFerred!

Its a good idea bro I like it, when I think verification I start thinking utility bill, ID, blood samples lol. I am sure it will be as simple as possible

How bout a monthly bonus of extra interest for referrals?

Yeah I was thinking something along those lines. But perhaps people would prefer a more 'instant' type of reward? Perhaps a simple 10 VRC referral reward once a new user has been VeriFied and deposits a certain amount of VRC in their wallet?

Cost effective for whom, Vericoin or the referrer? It needs to be a nice balance between keeping the inflation low with VRC, which isn't much of a problem since 2.3% is already very low. Anything below 3.5% is acceptable IMO.

It would really only cause extra inflation during the expansion phase of the coin anyways. 5-10 years down the track, once it has been established, it could be abolished.

cost effective for Vericoin maybe give like one day of double Interest per refferal that would keep the overall inflation rate in line with original projections and give the added incentive

I personally think it shouldn't necessarily be tied to interest, as that only rewards big bag holders.

You want the little guys, with little wallets, to be sharing it to their friends too. Which is why I think a fixed reward of 5-10 VRC per referral would be good.

I think the interest incentive would be better for merchants, as they could then be given an incentive to hold their VRC, rather than dumping straight back in to BTC or FIAT.

For example, a merchant that conducts a lot of transactions could be given double interest for a set period of time for each transaction, or something similar.

Keeping the perspective (2)

Mostly for those new bagholders, the crying ones, that were counting in quickly trading for a profit of 6-10,000  sat and are now holding a significant bag with a 1/3 deficit and the shout continuously on the forum for devs to perform magic and take the price back to 35+:

--1, Pinkcoin lost 50% of its value in the same period even after announcing the names of ALL their devs and, especially, the leader of them, a star of the       World Poker Tour.

--2, Blackcoin has suffered -and continue suffering, still at the lows of many, many months- even worse dumping than VRC, with no rebound yet -as opposed to the 50% rebound, already, on VRC. In spite of a slew of announcements, including additional "members of the team", a very successful appearance at the Chicago convention -where they were "... by far the both more visited"-; direct contacts about integration with PayPal, actual offer of minimal investment by Intel (all of this according to the propaganda of BC, it could be exaggerated), Black Halo launching, Market announcement -everyone under the sun is announcing decentralized exchanges... that's why the investment community doesn't put any real value on any of that- AND an investment in PR of at least $32,000 with the Max Borgess Agency that so far, 60 of the 90 days it's bound to last, has only [produces a press release, a small article somewhere and a Q&A with an employee of the MBA--- if they would have directly bought media with those $32k, they could have had dozens of full page articles printed by tens of publications around the globe--- IF they would invest those $32k today in Blackcoin, they could probably buy the entire sell book up to 35k sat or higher--- no wonder the hiring of the MBA is widely considered to have made BC the laughing stock of the crypto community.

--3, Nautiluscoin, the coin with a built-in Stabilization Fund, by Wall Street eagle and deep crypto currencies connosieur, Brian Kelly, has lost, for no apparent reason whatsoever, 2/3s of its value in less than the same period -actually in MUCH less-.

There could be several macro-economic considerations made about the slump on these coins, VRC and several others I have not listed because they are less established, or prominent. Take your pick about what you feel could be the cause. But it is not because those coins have had any kind of news or circumstances that in any remote way could be the cause of the sell offs. It's simply not what has happened. Therefore, the only thing that has changed in those coins, is the price in the markets, nothing else. If you believed in them at double or even triple the price, there's not a single reason for you not to believe in them not at the probable bargain-basement price. And, needless to say, the devs have nothing to do with the slump either.

Like it or don't like it. Buy it or sell it. But your VRC is the same that was a few weeks ago when the price was in the high 40s. If anything, way stronger. If you want to make a point of reference of the rollback date, the coin reached the mid 30s, so no reason at all to not trust what you trusted and more than 60% above the current price. If anything, VRC is way stronger now than it ever was, tested as it has been, against a relentless dump and a clear panic phase.

As everyone knows, I have many criticisms and a considerable hub of ideas as to many things I would like to be done/implemented in VRC. But that doesn't hinder, not one bit, my confidence in the potential of this coin due to the main assets that have been solidified during the recent crisis: The dev team, in spite of their considerable shortcomings, and the community and especially the main stakeholders, those who keep the staking above 10 million VRC and the exchanges filled with 4-6 million or more that they will not sell under 20, under 25 and maybe even under 30, 35 or 40. Those are fucking solid assets that I'd be willing to bet against any other project in cryptoland, with similar distribution %wise. Nothing, as long as those assets remain committed, can stop this coin from success. Nothing.

And if the flow of ideas is followed by implementation of the best ones, and a clear path towards the main objective, this will indeed be the first altcoin to reach mainstream, no question about it.

And that is why, at the moment, I am  invested in VRC way more heavily than I ever thought I would be.
