I'm not one who goes around criticizing coins but am just saying it's always been a mystery how Feathercoin has managed to survive on it's own blockchain for so long?!

It's got exactly the same genesis block, nonce, merkle root and magic bytes as Litecoin. Shouldn't this be causing catastrophic headaches for everyone involved?

There is a solution in the works for this.

Well, noone likes to give financial advice, because it's risky business. On the other hand, if you look current development on this thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=704588.0 you can make your own conclusions. Once NeoScrypt kicks in, and ASIC miners stop dumping, I guess there should be some differences in price...

I highly doubt that any existing ASIC miners are mining FTC in any meaningful amount.

Feathercoin has lacked on development on all fronts since its inception. I personally see no value in FTC currently.

....Feathercoin has lacked on development on all fronts since its inception....

Have a flick through our newsletters for the last 8 months.. https://www.feathercoin.com/category/Newsletter/

Or here's a copy and paste of something you might have missed on the other thread you've replied to..

Quote
From Point of sales equipment and ATM's to embedding magnet links in our blockchain, and even working with a local council to educate and help them establish their own localised crypto currency.
Feather ATM | Link/Flux | Hull City Council

We're sending a ftc wallet literally to the moon's surface, and raised a ton of money for cancer research.
Ftc to Moon | PCUK

We have created an open source solution for checkpointing and also diff re-targeting that puts all the gravity wells to shame.
ACP | eHRC.

These projects have all been achieved over roughly ftc's first 12 months of life, where we have survived multiple hardforks, a 51% attack and a forum hack.

Endlessly the Feathercoin community has worked with other coins to either help or even in some cases save their coin.

ftc's ethos is that we should all be working together to create the best open source solutions possible.

You just wait and see what else we have planned.. or, come on over to the forum and find out for yourself..

FTC always been perceived as a coin created simply for the missed the btc boat crowd. Tried to market itself as the something (I have no idea what) to LTC silver of BTC gold but yeah few ever bought that....

So think my question is, whats the point to feather coin?

Smothie,

FTC just evolved Scrypt in certain way (completely different from Scrypt-Jane or Scrypt-N), I don't see nothing wrong at it.
In fact Feathercoin just offered whole Scrypt ecosystem new direction.

We should all be happy somebody is trying to push the algo forward and is developing new aplications.
Especially todays when 90% of new coins are complete scam.
I was never biggest Litecoin fan, but I do like your LTC related products.

I will be very hapy to try my GPUs at this algorithm.

So think my question is, whats the point to feather coin?

99% of the coins out there are stuck in their ways. They have a niche and think that makes them special. Feathercoin takes the best idea's from these niche coins, and creates an open source solution which can be copied into any other coin.

In the coming months will have what's needed on github to implement ftc into http://projectskyhook.com/

Not that we don't all ready have an open source ATM for ftc that any other coin can copy, but more the better right?

We are one of the few coins who will continue to adapt and evolve. btc and ltc have found their place. They are somewhat set in stone and no longer have the true freedom to experiment with the blockchain technology..

tl:dr - So what is the point?

Feathercoin picks up from where Satoshi left off.

No thanks.

I've looked prior to this discussion and all I see is the same stuff that should have been done long ago. As I said, Feathercoin is irrelevant in the big picture. That is my opinion.

~A year ago I sold the last of my FTC and haven't looked back...sure enough the price (as on metric of confidence in FTC) is 95-98% down since in terms of Bitcoin.

1. the new algorithm has not stood the test of time. It is new code and very well may have side effects unforeseen. Who knows.

2. This stuff should have been done long before Feathercoin ever launched (over a year ago) as a copy-paste clone of Litecoin.

3. The direction Feathercoin is going is back into the GPU mining arena and will need to compete with 1000's of new coins that can be mined with GPUs/CPUs. What makes feathercoin so special that the majority of that market of miners will choose feathercoin over all the other options? My guess...they likely won't choos Feathercoin.

I am not saying that Feathercoin is a scam or that the FTC community are dishonest etc etc...what I am saying is that I believe Feathercoin is irrelevant. There is nothing that makes FTC stand out from the rest of the alt-coins out there that can be mined with GPU/CPU.
