Hi Drak, are you maintaining https://www.transifex.com/viacoin/viacoin/ ? I already requested access for Dutch translation.



As you probably saw, I added you.

I think you definitely supported Truthful's high school metaphor (which was actually a simile),   Wink with the ending of your post. And you are not so respectful either.

In general, though, I agree with Truthful's sentiment; speaking for myself, I supported VIA as a bet on btcdrak and Peter doing things on VIA that Bitcoin would never do, in particular TreeChains.

Helped me either way, because I had way more value in BTC than VIA, but if I knew that VIA would not even be much of a test chain for BTC innovation, I would not have put any BTC in it.

And doing what Bitcoin wouldn't, was certainly how btcdrak presented VIA back then, especially regarding Peter's involvement. Maybe I just misunderstood his intentions, or something happened, but I doubt it. I think it's just that most people don't present their true intentions, especially where money is involved...

So, for what it's worth, I don't think as highly of VIA and btcdrak at this point, but I did bet on them freely, and lost the investment so far.

Lesson learned: don't bet on personalities and most of what they say they plan to do. Ultimately though, every investment requires some trust in its salespeople.
If none of us trusted Satoshi's vision and intent, (not to imply that anyone involved with VIA is Satoshi-grade) none of us would be here, or made the money we made in crypto. 

So, as someone else said here, I just hope that what goes around always comes around to all of us - good and otherwise.
Happy holidays!


CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY

REPLACEBYFEE


Here, I'll quote for you, because we all know clicking is hard for millennials.


I'm sure if early investors knew that VIA was becoming a glorified token to further development work on Bitcoin and Drak's OKCoin account they would have though twice about investing. Saying "well the code will be featured in Viacoin too!" is such a copout. If they wanted to beg for BTC to further develop Bitcoin then be upfront about it, but pitching us a new alt coin that claims to fix the problems of Bitcoin while taking these solutions to Bitcoin is deceptive.

The whole selling point of Viacoin was to do things on its chain that Bitcoin core devs supposedly refuse to implement. Yet suddenly every innovation produced for VIA is actually getting in the Bitcoin code, which makes the original argument for VIA's existence null and void.

Look I know Drak, Todd and you Icebreaker are a bunch of autists who don't think like normal human beings and you think it is perfectly acceptable to ask for almost half a million dollars for a few hundred lines of code but some of us live in the real world where such obscene salaries would normally command in the business world at the minimum a 50-60 hour work week for a whole year and personal cell phone access on the weekends.

This business of Drak getting on twitter everyday, yacking about what is going on in whaleclub, and accusing Gavin of driving people to suicide and then occasionally popping in once a month to write a line or two here and contributing little to the Viacoin github is unacceptable. I'd fired his ass a long time ago if he was on my staff.

The question is has he delivered 600 BTC worth of work and effort into Via? the answer is a solid NO.

What's funny is you got guys like Dave Zimbeck who himself alone built Bithalo, Nighttrader, a working decentralized marketplace with Bitbay, 2-party smart contracts and is in the process of finalizing pegging and all while managing to stay active with his community on an at-least weekly basis and yet he gets called the scammer!  

This whole place really is like high school made up of cliques.

Perhaps if you were more of an "autist" you would understand why some lines of code are vastly more valuable and difficult to produce than others.

We all knew PT's dev work would explicitly benefit both BTC and VIA; that was the deal all along.  It's only 'shocking' 'scandalous' news to you.

VIA got CLTV months before Bitcoin.  The market didn't care, but that's no excuse for you to whine about it.  The point is Via had (and still has) its chance to shine.

Your 20/20 hindsight is asinine and immature.  If VIA/XCH had gone to the moon thanks to their advanced features, 600 BTC would have been a small price to pay.

But unfortunately that hasn't happened yet, so now you feel entitled to retroactively pooh-pooh what has been accomplished, as if shepherding CLTV from concept to battle-tested code is some small thing?

IDC about your lame high school:cliques metaphor.  It has no value beyond providing a vent for your pouting.

You should please go sodomize yourself with retractable batons.

@Drak, I see that you are administrator of the viacoin project in transifex. We need some support setting up Transifex for the Dutch language and we also like to translate viacoin.org in several other languages. Please see PM.

Thanks! I have added a new project to translate viacoin.org in several languages.

Not sure if it is useful to translate QT Translation 0.10.x, because the languages are already available in the wallets. Whats the reason that this project is available?

Peter Todd on twitter today: 'BIP65 OP_CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY can now be used in production on Bitcoin mainnet. What are you going to build with it?'
What could be build on it?
It can be interesting for VIA to find out what devs will do with in on the BTC-blockchain. I'll watch it closely.

So if my math is right the hard fork / halving will happen in about 35 days ((1971001-1846500)/3600)=34.5. I can't wait to see if markets will react in one way or another...

r/btc is the xt troll mothership.  Which is why banning hellobitcoinworld from there was such EPIC FUNS.    Cheesy

drak was foolish to engage the toxic Gavinista malcontent community as if it held any potential for construction discussion.

Hey drak, how is the view from underneath the Bitcoin Judas bus?

Is the tread looking OK or does it need new tires?  What about the brake pads?   Wink

Is this coin abandoned? BTCDrak doesn't have time to dev anymore because he is busy moderating? What is happening with price. I have lost a lot of my investment from ICO. I put about 80% of my portfolio in via when it launched and then I put about 30% of that into XCH. I am very disappointed. Is development stopped?

No idea. Last Github entry was on 15 november https://github.com/viacoin

But seriously. If you hold a coin that long time you will lose money on every altcoin. I believe IPO was at 6k and the ATH was over 70k. You should at least selling a part in a pump to cover your investment and take some profit

this appears to be relevent.

https://www.zapchain.com/a/l/who-is-btcdrak-why-is-he-considered-a-core-developer-why-was-he-made-moderator-of-the-bitcoin-de/toSyK3lLbT

Who is 'BTCDrak'? Why is he considered a Core developer? Why was he made moderator of the bitcoin-dev mailing list? Is he a Blockstream investor?

BTCDrak shouldn't really be considered a core developer but perhaps the better term would be a Bitcoin Core weasel as he has weaseled his way into being thought of and considered a core developer through brown nosing.

Ironically his only contribution to the Bitcoin Core repository is a document entitled "Contributing to Bitcoin Core".

BTCDrak also managed to create an ICO for his altcoin Viacoin which is just a clone of Bitcoin and the accompanying project ClearingHouse which is just a clone of Counterparty. BTCDrak isn't a programmer but has enough coding knowledge to make a Bitcoin clone and enough technical doublespeak to swindle people out of 600 Bitcoins for the ICO.

At the time 600 Bitcoins had a value of around $380 thousand dollars.

BTCDrak paid a small portion of that money to Peter Todd to implement some features such as CLTV (Check Lock Time Verify) and uses that as a badge of honor. Essentially paying Peter Todd a portion of the $380k has allowed him to weasel his way into the Bitcoin Core developers team.  He also conned Peter Todd into assuming the role of "Chief Scientist".  Peter Todd in November wrote "I was previously getting paid by viacoin to do Bitcoin Core dev work - I never actually contributed to Viacoin directly".

The fact is that BTCDrak has nothing better to do with his life than to be a professional troll. The best way to be a troll is to weasel your way into being thought of as a respected Bitcoin developer which makes him on the same level as someone like Gavin Andresen or Mike Hearn (in his mind at least).

And what about 'development'? Should people assume, its not your role to develop a meaningful use for what you created?
