ok, so its done... the same story every coin - devs going on vacations when tech seems to be to complicated to deliver. Gury not gonna fud but abandon the ship when its still time
My thoughts exactly, oooh it's summer, blame holiday season for lack of progress. This team must have been on holiday for 5 months.

Instead of whining why don't you put on your Dev hat and pitch in? Did you know you can develop on top of Opal? Oh you probably don't know how to develop anything other than a bad attitude. Gotcha!

Good post. A coin's success is not just about the dev. A good coin needs a strong community, who are willing to put in some effort of their own to help with side projects, promoting the coin etc.

Some of you expect the dev to work 24/7 on Opal and go without holidays just so you can buy a few thousand coins at 1500 sat and then sell them when it reaches 3k. If you really want the coin to succeed then chip in with some constructive suggestions or even help with the development... instead of just bitching about how the dev isn't making you enough profit.

Thanks for chiming in, I was short and in a hurry and your post does better justice. Of course we all wish the price would just skyrocket, but Day Trading coins only shows there are more people who just want to pull the rug out from under all the people supporting the coin. It is a mind bender trying to figure out how to solidify a value to a coin be it at 1500 or 3000 sats, there must be reasons to buy a coin. So to create a service is the real way to make it stable, so Opal has the right base to start with.

Did I mention price at all?HuhHuhHuh My comment was about the lack of progress. The fact that no development news has been made for a good length of time(maybe no development work we don't really know) and the lack of engagement from the dev team.



I didn't claim to be a developer or that I could do a better job, although at least I can communicate effectively.

Yeah that was my point, all you can do is develop a bad attitude. I was in a hurry. The progress that has been achieved is more than most coins can point out. If the devs told you a year ago that it would take 5 years, would you be happy at this point? Perception makes the glass look half empty to some, and yet to others it looks half full. But I look at the glass and instead of seeing half empty or full I want to know what is in the cup and is it Vodka or just plain Water. Take a swig and hope for the best!

Cheers!

Is there any plans to include a marketplace for opal. Not a black market but a white market.

I need crypto in my life and garbage out of it.

Yeah I would like to know about this too, it looks like whitj is either sarcastic or not drug-friendly Cheesy any implementation of white market without the actual censorship would be interesting, but I cant think of a way how to implement that.

People will always complain regardless  of how much time and effort the team puts in. It's simple is you don't like the coin its concept features or dev team there are 1000 other coins you can invest in.

Have a great weekend.

Ya know, the happy talk karma whores like dark can suck the Big One.

Half-baked crypto "markets" are a dime a dozen....
And while Tor dark markets are doing 7 figures in business (however you may feel about them)...
I don't know of any decentralized market that's not limping along at 4 figures/day...
Even the NXT AE had several days this week where TOTAL volume was about $2,500.

There are fundamental structural problems with decentralized markets that no one is willing to talk about...
It's all fairies and unicorns and gimme a another million $$$ for a Raspberry Pi mesh network Asset...
The only forum I see anything resembling critical analysis is BitShares... and they are always struggling due to massive overhead.

So, hey gang, let's tack on a "market" so people can hawk t-shirts and trinkets...
Because every other thing has gone wrong... or was a bad idea... or is in endless limbo... or on vacation.

Oh, BTW...
We are in the biggest Alt bull market in 12 months...
You gotta be really special bad and illiquid and irrelevant to be tanking in Jun-Jul 2015.

You're not allowed to make negative observations here. the bagholders will rubbish your opinions without actually giving any intelligent counter argument. I don't think they made the college debate team.

Any Alt Coin can create a Bull market, the devs just buy and sell to themselves. The smart devs don't give hints to you as to what is going on, they don't just dump on you and do their profiting over time, they trap your low buys and sell to themselves then buy up again to make you move your positions. Have fun in those BS markets! Only service oriented coins will survive, coins with service oriented functionality behind them. I always love when people don't get that the only thing stabilizing coins now are their hopes to get rich, since they hold and wait till the price goes up and put their buys in lower. The fact that the coin is at a low price means it is not manipulated by devs. Any Dev who wanted their coin to be substantial could do this easily and even manage it with bots. They make very cheap coin during PoW and then take some BTC and buy up to a good level to sustain, meanwhile they own the BTC in the other account that they bought the Alt Coin with and they also own the Alt Coin to place sells with and get your BTC.

When you see stagnation in a coin it most likely means the devs are honest, and these devs are hardworking, and deserve a vacation. I hope they put all the naysayers back into their place when they return!

I don't think we will hit 500 sat, this would happen only in case of serious unresolved blockchain issues (or 1 year of dropping prices). In my experience the price of the coin is determined primarily by distribution, which is directly related to blockchain age. Take a look at LTC. The price is low at start, because trust needs to be established.

I understand that some people may be disgruntled, but I think that the main reason is the disillusionment in terms of new feature implementations, so if there is any issue, it might be PR-related.

OPAL is a small coin and it will remain that way unless the new features are implemented or new processes put in place, but I can hardly see that as an issue.

It is not "run" by a 15 year old. He is a member of the team.

Now I am enjoying catching up on the fud fest going on, but I'm not sure how well it's working out for you.
Your wasting your time trying to scare out for cheap coins with these lame attempts at shaking opal holders..

Sorry, normally I don't pay attention to fud, but really I don't understand attacking a coin.

Especially, when one works to support it's users.

Everyone has to agree that the “Oh we have news! But we have vacation for June and July so wait until August" is total bullshit. Seriously all the devs are on a 2 month vacation? DO YOU SERIOUSLY EXPECT US JUST TO WAIT AND WATCH THIS COIN DROP IN PRICE WHILE YOU ARE GONE?!

Obviously, we're not all on vacation and there was an announcement, but I guess shapeshift.io isn't a big deal. It's not like  having more exchange acceptance helps use or commercial viability. As far as price goes, I really wonder if Bitcoin devs get yelled at about the price of there coin like the have control of it. If this were an ICO I would totally feel like price was a responsibility, but Opal was NEVER an ICO so we pay for development ourselves. We put in our own time and money and apparently if we don't do this 24/7 its "total bullshit". I'm sorry I let you down. I will set something up to keep you price hounds happy.

Please consider implementing what HBN and Clams have - staking to a different account (certain % perhaps)

This could make donations to a dev fund more streamlined. I dont dare move coins because I dont want to mess with stake weight

If you buy from the markets the price will move up. I always buy from the markets and I was going to pay in Opal for some graphics work to then go and buy a ton and boost up the price again. Most likely the person I send the Opal to would not sell either...

I couldn't sell at these prices anyways only buy more to hedge Smiley

I think the majority of Opal holders aren't really looking to sell at this price. I don't know for certain though, perhaps if there was enough volume on the buy side then maybe some larger holders would dump into them.
