Also, unrelated, apparently halong had one too:

Dang, that makes at least 3? Grabbed the below from another thread. Network hash and difficulty will be very interesting to watch later this month.



Monero network hashrate distribution (stats on 8 february)
Roughly 70% of network hashare are on private pools.
Seems to be coinhive, js web miners, compromised pc/cpu instances botnets and Baikal, PinIdea and Bitmain ASICs/FPGAs

10x airdrop, >5% premine


so extrapolating, 5%*10=50% (it says greater than too  Shocked)

5.859375% of 256 million is exactly 15 million.  I dont believe there is currently, after 4 years of existence of Monero, more coins with access to it then 15 millions coins.   There should be 800k more coins but I bet number like that was lost in last 4 years from different reasons.

I really feel it shines a light on the issue being unlimited supply due to the tail emission.

That seemed a large part of their pitch. Easily debunked it would seem.

...so let me get this right.

The biggest claim with regards to monerov being a scam are that they are having people enter their private key in a closed source wallet?

Correct me if I'm wrong what what's the harm in waiting for an open source one?

Also, being given the option to sell/monetize personal transaction histories at will en masse seems like a major opportunity I would think?

Not that I'm recommending it, but you can attempt to claim your scamcoins with no risk to your own funds using a closed source wallet anyway. Just wait until snapshot date passes, transfer all XMR to new wallet, then import old private keys into closed source wallet that is on a different (unimportant) computer.

Also, unrelated, apparently halong had one too:
https://twitter.com/HalongMining/status/974189005712576512?s=19

You are still handing over your transaction history with those old keys.  No Thanks.

As to their 'unlimited supply' claim,  I think it will take more than a thousand years for XMR to overtake their 'fixed supply'.  I won't care as much by then.

If the ASIC miners were mining for quick profit they may have consumed a lot of buy pressure the last 6 months by selling as they mined it
If more "holder types" mine Monero after the fork  it could change the price a bit, less than 5 XMR reward for each block now. The asics could have been taking up to half of available mined coins

Or they hodled their monero with plan to pump it like bitmain did with bitcoin cash and then pasted their bags to others to keep them for long period of time...Really currious to know how many xmr was mined with those asics,anyone did the math already?

<5 XMR and dropping faster.  And faster.  I think a lot (most?) don't understand the XMR emission curve...

Without looking anything up,

100 days x 24 hours x 30 blocks/hr x 5 XMR=360 000

I'm on a boat, with too many distractions, so that may be fucked up...

Damn, there went my last paper wallet overboard!   Now see what you've done!

Monero is a cryptocurrency who really cares about privacy. I believe in the long term that it will be much more valuable than the present. It's the right time to buy Monero.

Brilliant.
Thanks for all the replies (and friendly PMs too...what a lovely bunch you are!).

So, does this airdrop thing mean I'm suddenly going to have a huge pile of coins appear from nowhere (ala BCH)...I imagine not since this would have pushed demand and the price wouldn't be going south.

Anyway, I'll keep HODLing and try not to get too depressed looking at teh charts.

Hey nano... good to see you back, and yep - keep the faith.  Hope it's not been too chilly up there for you?

Ok - with fears of a crypto winter possibly in force, alts are taking a beating all round, but a shakeout only means the cream will rise.

The airdrop was (temporarily?) pulled - got too much (justified) flak for looking decidedly iffy.  Sure, airdrop junkies probably did push things up and then drag it down, but XMR's fundamentals are as good as ever.  Keep calm and wait - Monero isn't going anywhere but up. 

It's a real coin, no ICO, no dev premine, real community, real use cases and as always... vastly superior tech.  Dash fared far worse, as you will probably have noted - Monero even pipped their market cap a week ago and I am sure will soon do so permanently.

And best of all - the real deal?  True privacy matters - it's precious.  You know it. So IMHO... hodl and be patient.  No one who has been around here for a while is remotely worried, nor should you be.

Did you guys realize that we are THE top thread in altcoin speculation? Take a look https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=224.0;sort=replies;desc Not just a little bit. By a fucking mile. 37k replies to 8k runner up. Shocked

It's easy to forget. Smiley

Meh, we all know the charts change with the wind. Tongue

I didn't hedge XMR specifically. I hedged my whole crypto portfolio in a way by selling my bitcoin when it started falling hard and putting in a stop order at the price that I sold it at. So worst case scenario, if it stops falling and going back up the exchange will automatically buy it back at the same price that I sold. No fancy contracts or anything. I cant even get on bitfinex being an american. Either way though it makes me feel so much less stressed about both the decline in bitcoin and monero.

Thanks for the precision. So if I understand correctly you simply:

1- hodl when you think it will go up
2- sell your coins and buy them back (if they return to previous level) when you think it will go down
advantage = you don't lose if the coin never recovers. You can still change your buy order if you think the coin bottomed
?

I thought you were opening short positions which is common on FOREX. I have searched for solutions but I never found a cheap/convenient way to do that with cryptocurrencies.

I would recommend to never short XMR, it's real easy way to lose, when it spikes it will smack you every time. In the long run you will do much better holding, even longing is dangerous.

10x airdrop, >5% premine


so extrapolating, 5%*10=50% (it says greater than too  Shocked)

a dev pre mine of half the size of monero in total.
[Garbage Image}


This sounds about right, excellent representation but I think this shot may be more representative (hint: where's waldo).



If the ASIC miners were mining for quick profit they may have consumed a lot of buy pressure the last 6 months by selling as they mined it
If more "holder types" mine Monero after the fork  it could change the price a bit, less than 5 XMR reward for each block now. The asics could have been taking up to half of available mined coins


2True, I think we all knew this was going on just from the hash rate increase.

Without looking anything up,

100 days x 24 hours x 30 blocks/hr x 5 XMR=360 000

I'm on a boat, with too many distractions, so that may be fucked up...

Damn, there went my last paper wallet overboard!   Now see what you've done!

Just Lol...

Next week the G20 is coming up and they will also talk about crypto. As stated in the public document of the G20(: https://back-g20.argentina.gob.ar/sites/default/files/media/finance_ministerial_highlights.pdf) they understand that crypto has the potential to promote financial inclusion but at the same time they will try to analyse implications to financial stability, tax evasion and financing illegal activities. These statements are nothing new and very similar to what was said previously at the US senate hearings.

Could this have implications on Monero?

...so let me get this right.

The biggest claim with regards to monerov being a scam are that they are having people enter their private key in a closed source wallet?

Correct me if I'm wrong what what's the harm in waiting for an open source one?

Also, being given the option to sell/monetize personal transaction histories at will en masse seems like a major opportunity I would think?

The biggest concern for Monero is the potential damage of privacy via an on chain fork that requires private key use to claim an airdrop. Private key reuse is a new-ish attack vector on the network.

My guess is that they could care less whether or not its a scam.
However, claims regarding a scam revolve around the unknown team, closed source software, 10x airdrop, >5% premine, questionable claims on finite supply, coin serves a duplicate or unknown purpose and despite being made aware how their on chain fork damages the privacy of both networks they're moving forward.

It will be interesting to see who or if any exchange supports them.

Wouldn't the potential 'damage to privacy' claim necessarily be dependent on whether or not the pk is actually shared publicly, or rather with someone collecting many? Is it being implied that a closed source wallet would automatically upload your private keys to some tla database is a little much I think. Especially if anyone is running Windows, operating over a WiFi connection, etc... I mean chances are they already got the data if they want it.

So aside from that, the concern i can discern would be more toward an unaffiliated third party (utp) like a marketing agency having the ability to monetize transaction data, if they obtained the private key of a wallet through this means. Alternatively, the tax man could also purchase such data from the utp. For one - there are a series of legal precedents that need to be considered before that could happen which I haven't had much thought on, and have not read much.

Over the next few months, monerov and it's affilitates (provided this isn't some elaborate scalping) will be filling this role. From there onwards, others may likely do the same.

My point here is that regardless of what monerov is doing now - years down the line what's stopping literally anyone from forking monero and actually releasing a closed source wallet with published capacity to add your pk to a database and use said information for whatever purpose they wish? What if some utp decides to put up a market peg of a million dollars bid in exchange for as many pk's as will fill the order?

Just finished Reading my Financial magazine ( same magazine that advised me to buy Monero ) said we could see higher usd prices but if we keep going down, we could see 80 , even 16 usd by year end... this actually scares me a bit.
