Seems like the ETH / DAO crisis has fuelled a trip down memory lane for a lot of folks on Polonibox, linking a possible ETH rollback with VRC's rollback and the following crash. Could you guy explain what happened then, how did you make that decision and how are you preventing it from happening again? I think this is the best way to avoid rumours and false information from spreading in this veri sensible period.

Your questions have answers, but it is best you go here to ask and reply https://twitter.com/VeriCoin/status/743812040377139201   as Vericoin devs have made statements it seems, like this from Douglas Pike https://twitter.com/effectsToCause/status/743890800048750592

ICO?Huh??  yay!!!!!!

 come on everybody hop up on the band wagon.

Yes.  Master.   

Remember folks, BTCtalk has trolls, try not to feed them or get caught in their vortex of false truths.      We all do not have to agree, just be careful how you reply to others and when it is best to just ignore.    A good way to tell a troll from a real genuine discussion is when someone disagrees based on assumed "facts" and runs with it.

It was really amazing at the time, because Vericoin was a much bigger deal then.  I can't recall the exact amount stolen, but I believe it was a large percentage of all the VRC in existence.  So much that if VRC hadn't forked it would be effectively dead.  So in that sense I think it was a little different than the ETH situation, where ETH would be hurt badly but probably could survive even without a fork.  The VRC fork was a big enough deal though that I remember LTC dev Coblee arguing angrily against it (seemed like kind of a dick about it to be honest).  Anyway you're right; VRC is sort of the fork-to-prevent-theft trailblazer.

To be honest I don't see a big issue with projects hard forking in their infancy. However billion dollar chains hard forking to cater for their founder's investment... I do have an issue with that.

8 million coins were stolen. Also a big difference is the coins were stolen through no fault of the Vericoin developers.  From everything I have read the faulty code in ETH was known for about a year so if that was the case it wasn't a matter of if but when. After the rollback the team took a yea but cause with PoST so if something like the mental hacked ever happen again the coin couldn't be controlled. So it was a bad situation with people on both sides of the fence BUT they took that opportunity to improve the protocol for the better and that to be commended!!

In these crazy times for BTC, from altcoins I only feel comfortable holding Vericoin and DigyByte. I am pretty sure we will see more people turn again to crypto as a currency and not crypto as tokens. Especially with BTC flying past $1k until the end of 2016.

HI guys

Great to see that you have reopened this thread..... however it just looks so suspicious that the first thing you do is announce another ICO. Everybody wants there own little sand box to play in until they want to raise

cash, then it's lets get a thread running on Bitcointalk  Grin. It will be interesting to see how long this thread stays open. Anyway I hope you are here long term and good luck with your new venture.

Cheers Jon  Wink

We won't be closing this thread again.  We actually waited till we were presenting something new to open this thread so it was a more interesting discussion and to address a larger audience. While working on PoST, I realized we can improve PoW by making time variable as well. This was the beginning of Verium because variable block time is good for security and efficiency of mining, but not so great for transactions. That's when I realized PoW is inherently more of a commodity and PoS is inherently more of a currency. An optimal system requires both with separate protocols.

The developers didn't really want an ICO.  But people myself included from the vericoin forum wanted to get some Verium, since I and other don't mine coins.  Thats why one of the ideas for raising money is putting 50% of the funds stored cold and use the money off of the interest.

And when you put them both together, you have something that works veri well together.

The shills, sockpuppets, cheerleaders who want to revitalize their investment with a new scam and support these two clowns effectsToCause and pnosker to roll out this new scam must understand: this scam is not going to be successful.

The two developer clowns have been demonstrated in last two years that they are perfectly incapable to build anything substantial and useful, and therefore, what we are talking about here?
