Also love the fact that the FUD posters ignore the simple reason why it was not a choice but a necessity to fork to protect the community.

1 entity controlling 8 million coins that decided to stake them all would have had well over the 51% needed of the STAKING coins.

They will continue to ignore it.

This has the potential to ruin the coin or result in it coming back stronger than ever. We still hold the remaining 70% so as long as vericoin holders continue to be so active, we're just fine here. Also keep in mind that exchanges will definitely update to the new wallet, and quite a bit was being held in exchanges, so it's not quite as difficult as it appears to reach 51%.

Of course the exchanges are going to update it is their ass on the line and the devs are literally giving them a hand out by supporting the hard fork idea.

whats your problem ?? you are here saying bullshit for more than 3 hours..
do you want to open ppl eye? hmm no.. you just want ppl to dump so you can buy it cheap


trust me... lol.. no one wants to buy.

I would. If this fork is successful and coins go back to their rightful owners.

You are just a bag holder trying to retain value in a coin that is obviously dead. The rightful owners of the coins are whoever used a security flaw to steal them, it's their reward.  


You sir are a FUD spewing idiot please do humanity a favor and remove yourself from the genepool and stop wasting our precious resources in the most expedient fashion, I'll even buy you the bullet to do it with.

"fud" is just a buzzword that people use as a way of discrediting others when no other means are available.

Wow theres really no reason to answer you anymore as you have proven beyond any doubt how fucking stupid you really are.

How bout this PM me your address and at some indeterminate point in the future I'll come hold you and your family hostage, steal everything you own, and maybe knock off your wife/gf/mom/daughter/husband/boyfriend/whatever. by your logic it isnt criminal I am exposing security flaws in your personal home defense systems. Therefore I am providing a service and bettering everything. What do ya say, sound good?

How many rolls back in the future is the question?

The clear answer: As many as situations grant. Any and all thefts will be reversed. How's that for assurance, transparency and honesty?

Ultimately VRC will be worth what its community determines and supports. What's with all these familiar names (all associated one way or5 another with BC and The Black Hand, by the way) that never ever posted here and now come to post shit against hard forking and leaving the thieves with nothing? People add two plu two, come on!

Just so I understand correctly:
Are you saying that Mintpal (forgetting about the hack at the moment) already had the power to do a majority attack against the VRC network?
How is it different from the hacker owning the coin or Mintpal owning it?
Isn't the whole problem that it is just one entity owning the coin and able to attack the system?
If it isn't dangerous if Mintpal holds it, how is it suddenly dangerous now?

Welcome to the clueless club.  8 million coins staking would be well over the 51% of staking coins.  So doing nothing would be better?  It is what it is and many small individual coin holders will be saved instead of 1 hack thief making a lot of money.  Yeah I see your logic.

Again, the clueless club is rampant tonight led by smoothie.  Ask him for your membership card, you earned it.

Are you really that dense? Um, mintpal didn't steal anyone's coins. They are holding them. The hackers stole the coins.

Quite different ways of obtaining them and one that's quite hostile don't you think?  Or I should ask do you think?

BTC was forked 100 times
LTC  forked many times
DRK forked twice last month

.........................ETC ................


VRC FORKED NOW  . SO WHAT ?

BTC and LTC were never forked due to a hack or scam of a business.

Get your facts straight.



They have been forked because dev where drunk ? we don't care why they got forked . The thing is : we are waiting our coins to came back and trusting patrick more and more after this attack ! You didn't answer to my question , how much they pay you to spread fud and stay here for at least 3 hours ? or can i say KHOW MUCH (with an east european prostitute accent ) . Your life is ok ? lol . I hope = i will never have a life like yours = spreading FUD on a coin where people are suffering from major losses . So my second question was = what coin you want to promote with your FUD ? = what Boobs-coin you want us to invest in?

The great thing about cryptocurrency is that it's impossible to short it.
You like it, you buy it.
You don't like it? Do you have some? No? Ops... sorry, gfy
This is a good logic flow for you fudders.. Guess what? you end up in the longest path, right into the gfy statement  Wink

Rollback will be the death of the scammers dreams of making out with 2 million dollars, thats about it.

I love people getting mad that criminals will not be getting paid this evening!

to bad, so sad. Poor criminals.



And you want to know what makes it worse for the criminals, and they know this. Is this could backfire on those hoping for a drop, after a initial panic (or maybe not depending on outcome) I bet you see the price rise as MEDIA will take this over.

For everybody in crypto some like this some don't, lets say half like it, half don't. Well, with all this media, we may be getting after this. I bet you the half that don't like it will be drowned out with the new wave of investors, just a thought. Those BC scammers aren't happy about this.


Not mad at all. Please don't put words in my mouth since you want to put "everybody" into this category.

I just like calling out the BS that is going on.

Good luck with VRC as now it will be tarnished (in my view) on the trust aspect. VRC devs made a huge mistake here. This is called damage control but it will not change the inevitable.

Time will tell.

No no, you misunderstand.
People are saying a rollback is needed to save the coin because 8mil is too much for one person to hold (regardless of how they got it.)
Yet we are rolling back to a time when one person is holding this coin (Mintpal).
How is this different?
Is it because we are trusting Mintpal won't attack the network?

Mintpal I doubt would jeopardize their arguably decent business for vrc a coin you are trying to say is worthless.

I am 100% sure mintpal will not allow this to happen again.  Also the community will not let it happen.  No way will they trust a 3rd party entity that keeps 8 million in a hot wallet.

I can't imagine how much vrc will be moved off mp as this settles out.  Many will also realize that a coin that transacts as fast as vrc does is fine sitting in their wallets staking.  This will further strengthen the system after this educational experience.

Um.. what do you mean? Mintpal is a 3d party that kept 8mil in one hotwallet.
Hence our problem here.


Edit for clarity:
If 8mil belonging to one person is too dangerous, then Mintpal with or without the hack is dangerous.
A kindof ghash.io situation isn't it?

I guess I am clueless to call it as I see it.

Yup been here for over 3 years....look at my track record.

Vericoin will die a slow death. This is only damage control from the devs.

About 5 crypto stalkers posting 20 times a minute that think vrc is worthless.  Funny how a worthless coin attracts so much attention from people who want to buy it, no matter how much they deny.

You can't blame them either vrc devs have shown they can deliver.  They have further proven they are here to stay even when a 3rd party f's up in the most negligent of ways.

2. Fork the blockchain to block the stolen coins and effectively destroy them.
Vericoin will survive. Hacker has no coins. No threat to system. Coin amount reduced, value goes up.
Mintpal customers lose, this is Mintpal and the hackers fault. Mintpal needs to reimburse.
Mintpal could die.



Sorry, but I believe this option 2 doesn't exist at all.

How can you possibly admit that certain coins are invalid because they were stolen and not return them to their owners? It makes no sense whatsoever. You either ignore the crime or give them back to their owners.

It would be similar to Mintpal losing the keys to their wallet.
They made a mistake. Responsibility belongs to them,
if they admit the hack and there is fear that coins end up with an immoral entity that could harm the infrastructure, this would be a way to protect the infrastructure.

Intuitively it might feel wrong but think about it a bit more.
This option exists because it is a compromise.
In the compromise, people will not be able to call it a chargeback or a bailout hence the reputation of VRC will be spared.
VRC devs feel they have to act out of 51% attack fear. This will negate it.
The community will support this decision if it is either this or option 1, denying hacker the coin or letting the hacker have the coin.
The only people who will feel very strongly against this decision are not VRC holders in general, just those who left a lot of their money on an exchange. This will also be a lesson for them then.

Actually in my perfect world, all 3 options would be created by devs and then community can decide which blockchain to support and build on.

you can only "destroy" the coins by hard coding and blocking the address that holds them..

given that vericoin has its own inbuilt mixing service. I am not sure that all the coins would be stored in the one location for long or are even traceable.

if the coins get mixed and split up into numerous addresses then there is virtually no hope of "destroying" them.
what you would have to do is shut down the entire network and then block each address that has the coins.. you cannot do this while the network is running because the thief can simply keep moving the coins to different addresses

for all intents and purposes the devs probably went with option 3 .. roll back (effectively destroying every transaction that has happened since the hack) because option 2 was simply not practical.



Thank you very much for responding to my mental exercise of option 2.
If it is truly impractical or impossible and it was between option 1 and 3, if I was dev I would probably go with 3 as well.
Option 1, although more honest and safe for the ideology of cryptos would be too risky for devs.


It is clear that VRC devs didn't have better soluton other than rolling back the blockchain

Think about it, if someone robbed a bank in our real world, no one would even consider the Option 1 unless the Option 3 was not possible

It's funny that people can live with the Option 3 in real world, but cannot accept it happen in crypto world

This is another double standard that people should think more about it

How many rolls back in the future is the question?

The clear answer: As many as situations grant. Any and all thefts will be reversed. How's that for assurance, transparency and honesty?

Ultimately VRC will be worth what its community determines and supports. What's with all these familiar names (all associated one way or5 another with BC and The Black Hand, by the way) that never ever posted here and now come to post shit against hard forking and leaving the thieves with nothing? People add two plu two, come on!

"VRC, the PayPal of cryptos".  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
Glad to see smoothie stepping it up with the anti-FUDing while I was out enjoying some food, lol.

Much respect.

It's funny that people can live with the Option 3 in real world, but cannot accept it happen in crypto world

This is another double standard that people should think more about it
Fiat money and blockchain ledgers are two vastly different things.  Trying to make this function like reversible fiat money is exactly where the devs went wrong.
