EVERY ONE THE NETWORK STAKE IS NOT THE SAME AS THE AMOUNT OF COINS STAKING THAT IS JUST THE "STAKE WEIGHT" OF THE NETWORK

I hope this cleared up any confusion.


Posting again

Nope, this doesn't clear anything. How many COINS are staking? Plain and simple. And what the heck is "stake weight" of the Network?

I have to completely agree with barabbas on this one. The two questions I have, that I think the public should get clear answers to are:

1. How is staking weight calculated.

2. How is interest calculated from a compounding point of view. What I mean by this is the fact ScottAllyn I believe it was today was explaining how there is actually an advantage to having your wallet connected to the network 24/7 vs. connecting to the network once a month or once a year due to compounding interest. Well what is the calculation we can follow to determine what that payout would be? For example if I started the year with 100,000 coins and simply connected my wallet to the network 1 year later at an average interest rate of 2.25% I would clearly have: 100,225 coins. How many coins I would end up with though if I connected my wallet once a month vs. once a week vs. 24/7. Obviously this is all written in the code somewhere so there is a reference point to all of this. I'm not asking Socal this (no offense) or any other BTCtalk supporters - I think this should be answered by the devs themselves.

*Edit: the reason I ask question #2 is because at some point the math would determine when it becomes worth while to compound your interest 24/7 vs. yearly. It would be nice as an investor to know these equations as well as the numbers involved so I can make an educated decision on what to do. The followup answer I got today in the IRC channel was "well if you have a lot of coins it's probably worth while". Instead of trying to guess what "a lot of coins" is, I would rather know the exact number.

1. NetworkStakeWeight (known in the code as netstakeweight, nNetworkWeight and GetPoSKernelPS depending on context) is calculated using a weighted sum of combined total coins staking multiplied by the coin age factor. Coin age is something that allows coins to accrue interest over time, so if that particular coin in your wallet didn't stake for a long time, the value of its stake increases proportionally to the amount of time since last staked or sent. The visible network stake weight is a factor that is a combined score of both the amount of coins staking as well as the coin age. So if everyone has their coins staking, and on average it takes a week to stake coins, the network stake will be somewhere around 30 M (total supply of 26.8M in this example). If someone has never staked for 3 months and starts staking, they will inflate the value slightly as their coin age will effectively cause them to stake more than normal until their coin age resets. So that could increase the network stake to ~32M for example.

2. Interest is compounded continuously with consideration of the 8 hour "cooldown" period after a successful stake. Essentially, it's compounded at every ~8 hours or so, on average.

Who is playing with VRC buy / sell? Some people really manipulating price.  Angry

Yes this has been happening the past two weeks or so either whales accumulating or a well funded attack trying to kill VRC by artificially suppressing the price either way all we have to do is buy out the manipulators and NOT DUMP and there will be a clear shot back up.


EDIT:

Just something to think about if you take the time to dig back through the posts and the market graphs you will see a well coordinated FUD attack that coincided with the drop in price and subsequent suppression. That tells me there's either some big whales that know this is a good coin and wanted in cheap OR bag holders from other coins that want to see VRC fail because we threaten them.

This, again, is your usual bullshit. The truth is that there's a lot of people willing to sell their coins -and actually selling them- for lower and lower prices. All the rest is simply bullshit, nothing else.

Now, considering that \the staking numbers are absolutely false, that explains a lot. I will be awaiting for Doug's CLEAR explanation of exactly how many real coins are staking... and, by the way,m since the numbers provided are false, what's the use of those sites that are supposed to tell us how many coins are staking at a given moment and what the max and min of the day are? What a whole ball of crap this is resulting to be!

And I don't want to hear ANY bullshit any more, ok? Oh and by the way, Patrick, there's a very specific question hanging since it happened that you have refused to answer (correctly): Exactly in what way would your transfer of 200,000 VRC to the exchange "help stabilizing" the price? Because, no matter how many turns you take at it, it sounds and actually is suspiciously like BULL SHIT. transferring BTC to buy VRC, would have helped, indeed. Transferring VRC would actually have the opposite effect,. so what was the purpose? And whatever happened to those 200,000 coins. These are very simple, straight6forward answers that would take less than 5 seconds to post... why are you refusing to do it? They are not going to go away...

Those numbers aren't false. You just have a misconception of what the numbers represent. False would imply there is inaccuracy within the numbers, which in fact there is not. No need to be a dick about it.

Opinions are just like assholes, as you know. I will repeat once again: The numbers are, indeed, FALSE. Period. Now, since this is the truth, lets get and understandable explanation as to how those FALSE numbers have come to happen.

And, while we are at it, lets get a measure that is very simple and very clear that tells everyone EXACTLY how many coins are staking are any given moment and what the highs and lows of the 24-hour period are. REAL, not bullshit numbers, ok. Bullshit numbers only create confusion and suspicion, no matter that they maybe somehow "explainable". So let's get it from the horse's mouth, first how those FALSE NUMBERS occur and then, which are the REAL numbers and how we can look at them. We should be able to see, at any given moment, the BULLSHIT numbers and the REAL numbers.

So I will be waiting for those answers whether you consider that I am a dick or I consider you are an asshole, ok?

Manipulation, but like all things it too will pass and we will be back on the uptrend, as long as we stay positive as a community, continue to spread the word about VRC, don't dump and the Devs keep on delivering like they have been.

Not good enough. In several fronts Patrick.

First of all, your explanation of the BULLSHIT staking numbers, may or may not be academically correct who gives a shit. What counts here is the simple question: How many REAL coins are staking, whether they have been staking for months or just 2 seconds ago. Simple, isn't it.

Now, that shorted out (when it is, and when there's a real tracking site, device, whatever that keeps it up to date instead of the BULLSHIT numbers), how many coins are staking right now? Real coins, that is? How many were the max and min in the last 24 hours?

And Patrick, one more time: What was the purpose of that 200,000 VRC transferred to the exchange and whatever happened to them?

Not answering, just won't do.

How do you stay positive -rhetorical question, of course, I wouldn't expect any intelligent answer from you just like I wouldn't expect from a rock- when you see that the coins you are supporting all of a sudden seem to magically have multiplied?

to any of you with questions or concerns about the multipool check out this kickass payout I just got running at only 3 MH/s Scrypt (this is my first payout since yesterday and if I stopped mining now I would continue to get payouts for another day or two)




EDIT:

I misspoke I didn't "Just" get it I got it about 9 hours ago but I just now checked my wallet lol

Barabbas, Patrick just answered your question...the stake can not be calculated without the coin weight included.

Excuse me?? What you say is that, in reality, it is impossible to know how many coins are staking, REAL COINS, at any and all times? Is that it?. Because if that is it, I can't think of any bigger bullshit I have heard in my entire -and quite long- life so far...

So, that is to say that for a coin with 26.8 million coins presently, -which, according to you, are impossible to account for, so it will be an arbitrary, perhaps approximate number-, it is OK to have 30 million or even more coins staking at any given moment? All of that while the exchanges are loaded with MILLIONS of coins available for trading, which are NOT staking? Is that what you are saying? Let me get it from the horse's mouth because my fingers are really itching to type what I am coming with if this bullshit position is even pretended to be maintained...

Now, since you seem to be answering for Patrick (crickets), what is your answer to the transfer of 200,000 VRC to the exchange "to help stabilize the price"? and whatever happened to them? I'm sure you will have abundant answers for those two floaters also...

Hey, thanks for the quick reply! So from my understanding if one was to stake 24/7 the compounding period would be every 8 hours. So the difference between staking once a year vs. 24/7 would be as follows?

Staking once a year: (FV) = 100,000*(1+0.0225) = 102,250 VRC
Staking 24/7 (FV) = 100,000*(1+(0.0225/(365*3)))^(365*3))= 102,275.5

So you basically get an extra 0.02% of interest  Cheesy

Dude if you think it's buillshit just move on, sell your coins, and go find a coin where you can find the answer and be happy. No one is making you hold this coin. So please stop playing the victim card.

I'm also going to sleep, so no need to reply back to me.

From a literal sense I can see where Barabbas is coming from but it simply doesn't work that way. Every coin staking will have a different weight attached to it so it would not be possible to count every single coin staking.

Patrick can ring in on the maximum weight per coin and you can do some math to come to an average range of  amount of coins staking.

So you basically get an extra 0.02% of interest  Cheesy

Yes this on average would be correct. Also however if you have your wallet open 24/7 you would also earn the transaction fees for every stake block you get. So the transaction fees earned will be more numerous if open 24/7 as the coinage will be more continuous.

Yes, it is impossible to know exactly how many coins are staking at one moment. This is the case for every PoS coin. It's not possible to stake more than 26.8M but the "effective" stake could be higher due to coin age.

As for the coins during the hack, I have all of them. I put up both buy and sell walls to ensure that if anyone lost anything, it would be me. I didn't gain or lose any VRC or BTC. I'm not sure how many more times I'll have to answer this, but the only exchange I did anything on was Bittrex and you are free to ask them whether my balance now is the same as before.

See Doug's answer re: transaction fees. More importantly, if few are staking, the interest rate will be quite low for you (and others) causing you to have a much lower effective rate.
