Explorah.net/opal seems to be working now

Explorah still needs to fix their rich list calculations. :/

we have contacted BlockExperts to update the wallet, so we expect it to be running again shortly.

we recommend using our official explorer as we have no affiliation with "explorah" anymore and have stopped using them completely due to communication problems.

Looks like the giveaway coins dumped in public got sold. Price is down to 582 sats right now.

Also, whoever is naming the main ANN thread is doing a terrible job. If you type in "opal coin" into the bitcointalk thread, you get a bunch of 1 or 2 post junk threads with similar names for opal

If you go on google and type "ann opalcoin" you get nothing.

This is like ANTI-seo practices.. 

Instead of this:

[ANN] OPAL /14,9M/BITTREX/CRYPTSY/POD/WALLET TRADING/OPACITY+/OPAQUE ADDRESSES

Try something more meaningful:

Looks like sell walls on bittrex and cryptsy to keep the price down.

Been watching it all morning and the same guy it seems put up a 7btc wall originally then started spreading the coins out to manipulate the market.

He quickly buys up sells from people under his amounts to accumulate more for himself.

This is a good sign.

Also notice not many 50 sells recently, or even numbered sells which is what was given away at cryptsy.

These were big sales in chunks that triggered this downtrend.  No one coulda gotten that many in the giveaway.

You make some good points, although.. we are technically called Opal and not Opalcoin. Unfortunately we were limited with domain name choice and so had to buy opal-coin.com, which sucks a bit. It's not so bad because it is a "coin" - it's just the coin is not named OpalCoin.

How about remove the 14,9M and use those letters for "(Coin)"

I don't know what wallet trading means (I know, it's linked to Bittrex's API) but it isn't really self explanatory. It makes it sound like you can move coins from one wallet to another person's wallet.

Having about 4-5 main keywords in the subject is plenty. Anything more than that, gets confusing to read, to comprehend, and is counter productive after awhile, especially to new people.

When a new person looks at a message subject, they take about 2 seconds or less to decide if it is interesting enough to click on. It should be worded in simple but important terms. Don't keyword stuff.

[ANN] OPAL OFFICIAL THREAD - Trading on Exchanges. New! ANON MSG + TRANS (OPACITY+)

Sure. That can work too, although you could probably spell out the world TRANSACTIONS

Has anyone watched the Opal video at www.opal-coin.com ?

All the music, thunder and lightning does very little to convince someone to invest in the coin.  Unless of course, you're under 23 years old and at a rave party.

Instead, an instructional video showing how to use the wallet's features and messaging would be great. I hope someone does that..  (and keep the music low or off)

Oh, and having the video title "Opaque Trailer Final" isn't going to get a lot of youtube hits.  Unless of course you expect people searching cryptocoins on youtube to search for "opaque trailer final" in the search box.  There is also no youtube video description either (which helps you get more views)

The video doesn't even mention opal-coin.com on it or anything.  No screenshots of the wallet.

Very disappointing.  I sound negative, but I am really trying to help point out the weak spots.

i kinda like the music in the movie Smiley

but perhaps after that movie you could like the previous person mentioned perhaps add a tutorial to it to use all wallets features for people that need it Smiley
that is not a bad idea to be honest and a video tutorial is always nicer to follow then a written one, but perhaps other ppl will think differently about this.
either way, if you do that then you satisfy both groups Smiley

The movie was just meant to be a Theatrical Announcement trailer. There are plans in the works of having an instructional video in the future, after we polish up the features to make them more user friendly. The info on the video will be updated soon.

I am glad you enjoyed the video and I do appreciate the constructive criticism. It help a lot with improving the quality and direction of future work. We've all been pushing really hard to get things out a quickly as we can, I know that's not really an excuse, but it is better then doing nothing at all.

Just thought it was a good idea, no need to rush things instead take the time to make it perfect
we now know its in the making, thats enough for me  Smiley
