smoothie is one of the most reputable users of all Bitcointalk.  

He confirms: BCX attack failed and BCX is just a drama queen at best:

It seems that Monero will not be able to fix the vulnerability in time.

I noticed today they added checkpoints in preparation for the attack: https://github.com/monero-project/bitmonero

So.. what does this mean? Will the checkpoints sufficiently defend against the attack?

It worked for Litecoin in 2012 when BCX claimed to be "attacking" Litecoin then failed and ended up creating drama via another means on these forums. Those back then who were around know what I am talking about.

I have very strong feeling, that couple of months from now, we will simply laugh about current situation. Another opportunity to make this (still fresh) currency more robust.

I am not selling under 0.01 XMR/BTC.

My prediction is very much the same.

We still laugh at how BCX claimed to be attacking Litecoin in 2012 then to fail miserably and create childish drama via another thread on this forum is something I still have not forgotten about.

If he performs a XMR attack....i suspect it wont be long before it is forgotten and the price rebounds and people go about their usual day.

...you couldn't just post in the original thread about this? You needed to make ANOTHER monero thread to say this?

...you really are a monero troll in disguise, aren't you?

I wouldn't call it a "confirmation". But I would say that I have my reasons why I think he doesn't have a supposed exploit he claims.

But even if I am wrong, XMR will come out of this stronger anyway.

As I've said, if there is a supposed attack, let it begin ...  Grin Grin Grin
