BitShares PTS / Re: Why is ypool destroying PTS? (70% mined by ypool)
« on: January 17, 2014, 10:01:15 am »
Oh no thanks. No longer interested in Protoshares as i lost faith and do not trust the devs anymore. If that is no alarm to anyone of you then im even more glad that im out before the big crash.

oh yea, above 70% of the Pts are mined by your pool and you and your compadres earn 5% of that at minimum, plus the share from your miner binaries. Bias much?

Sounds like 100% secure...

There is no problem with ypool having 70% of the hash power because they are very limited in what they can do with that hash power.  They can do a Denial of Service or they can attempt a double spend...

...

Consider this a case study in the reality that the 51% attack is not really a concern.

Are you completely out of your mind?
Yet here you are, lead developer of a company who wrote decentralization all over its awful designed websites. You fail to deliver on your own invention stating the day it should be released that Poland was too slow. And now you say Oh its cool that people just use one pool... This will kill all other pools leaving PTS to 100% to ypool making it the bottleneck of a coin that was supposed to be a share of future Decentralized Autonomous Corporations, promoted by a company that screams Decentralization but actually does not give a fuck about it.

Tomorrow i will get complaints by my neighbours for the loud noise emitted by this epic facepalm.

so, stating the brutal truth, whats left to do, other than to abandon pts and move on? If the other pools shut down and drive ypools miningshare to 100%, maybe they let go if there is no more value in pts for them...

You can easily check on their site under stats > blocks found
When you choose to display the last 50 blocks found, the difference between the first and the last block shown should be at least 100

According to http://ypool.net/pts/stats_blocks
over the last 71 Blocks (Block 42202 to 42131) 50 of them were mined by ypool which is 70%
This is far beyond the feared 51% attack...
This leads to other pools drying out and the network getting centralized around the ypool entity.
Which in turn makes them currently the owners of protoshares and this results in difficulty and price drops.
srsly folks. y are you doing that?

Too greedy to switch to http://ptsweb.beeeeer.org/
or http://pts.1gh.net ?

I assume there are alot of frustrated miners that missed the bitcoin boom, who dont give a damn about decentralization/I3 and just want easy and quick profitz profitz profitz.
Well congratulations. You are ruining your profitz yourself...

MemoryCoin / Re: Not doing very well on cryptsy are we
« on: January 13, 2014, 07:08:35 pm »
Maybe too honest?
I do not like that kind of marketing but other coins probably start a giveaway to get people to vote or comment for them.
You should promote that voting feature better like, go to cryptsy, like, get a free coin and vote for CEO/CTO/etc

(also im still waiting for my 200$ bonus from super3 ^^)

Yes the vote of the people counts. But believe me, people are trained to be diluted. They fall for the simplest lies just in order to keep a dream alive. If something has been claimed to be a threat to security and/or their dreams by officials, people will follow the officials, even if those officials kicked the people in their ... what ever.
They rather keep up the illusion of safety and what they worked for oh so hard through all their lives instead of listening to the guys labelled as fishy, who, in return, don’t have a dream for them prepared to cling to. Which is a perfectly rational decision.
There are always revolutionary people, but they are a minority.
You might think of human beings as enlightened in the days of the internet but that has changed drastically.
Plus that from within the filter bubble you can not see that there are many many people still living without the internet. And as you stated yourself, the vote of people counts. Not the vote of internet people.

As for the giant machine that is almost impossible to stop. There still is a possibility to stop it. And there will be an attempt to stop it. So we need to be prepared, which is the intention of this thread :)

Oh hai na, auch hier?  :o

My intention was not to get you to explain crypto currency to other folks (which would be even better) i was rather thinking of something like stating that and why Clean Crypto Currencies are better than the Dirty Dollar.
Especially those triggerwords with an alliteration are extremely sticky to human brains or maybe invent a rhyme about that topic.

General Discussion / Clean Currency Campaigning
« on: January 11, 2014, 11:41:49 pm »
Dear crypto folks.

The government of the United States of America are attempting to regulate bitcoin and cryptocoins in general in any way possible.
They will, if they haven't already, realize that decentralized currencies are by design resistant to regulations.
Which in turn will lead to other approaches like deeming cryptos as a criminal instrument and/or a danger to everyone’s security and safety. I tell you, by looking deeply into my glass ball, that they will try to license the use of crypto currencies and deem any unlicensed use as illegal activity, thus posing a real threat to all your newly acquired wealth.
This will happen big time with media around the globe tooting into the same horn and ruining the image of cryptocurrencies to the average joe. They will be successful with that because many many people still dont use the internet.
I was in politics and this is the standard procedure for any unwanted developments by the reigning governments.
You can expect at least North America, Europe and Russia to be involved in this movement, plus all the satellite installations currently echoing the call of the Dollar. China already stepped back from bitcoins.

We all need to do something.

Spread the word about the Dirty Dollar and Clean Crypto Currencies and spread to your offline friends, your parents and the people you deal with every day.
We need to announce it to the real world. Print flyers, make an index of currencies involved in criminal activities to show, who the real criminals are and what currency they prefer.
We need to convince those who just feed their thirst of information off the mass media like television, newspaper and radio.
Do it now, before the regulators and banksters take actions.
Create logos and images that stick to the peoples brains so their minds are fortified against this gigantic delusion.

This is a serious threat, because all our internet activities are under surveillance and there is one bottleneck to crypto currencies, which is the internet itself.

I do not have the money nor the influence to get this done, but if we all stick our heads together and toot into our horn, then we have a real chance this spin will evaporate.
People don’t trust the banksters anymore and bitcoins are a serious threat for currencies under governmental regulation.
But if the bitcoin falls, all other crypto currencies will fall with it and all your dreams of freedom and decentralization have to be delayed.

but please, don't panic :)

Id like to see some brainstorming in this thread as to how this can be achieved.
I will try to spread the word to other nodes and you should too.

Maybe we can come up with some claims here.
I will create a flyer and post it here when its done, maybe you can do something like that too.

Sorry for stirring up all that dust, but i myself was victim of weird CIA influence because my words were too convincing and too liberal, having a whole political party be diluted into a pliant steerable mass as a result.
Also good day to any agents trying to derail this thread.

No that was no guide for profitable mining.
At least not profitable today :D
But it still is the easiest way to buy bitcoin via credit card *cough* :o

Set up your AWS instance:
In order to create a spot instance you need to get one on demand instance up, set everything up and create an AMI from it.
GPU instances only accept hvm AMIs (scroll down a bit on the Quick Start AMI selection)
This guide was written for Ubuntu 12.04.
Create a key pair if you dont have one already and download it.
When using putty on windows you need puttygen http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html to create a ppk file and select that ppk file under SSH > Auth in the putty menu
User for EC2 instances is ubuntu (on ubuntu instances)
From linux you connect via

On coinmarketcap.com protoshares are unreachable... again.
This just scares people away. Please stop that. Trust is essential.
