Lookin to make a small coin swap. 60 Devcoins for the first bitcoin tip I get.

I have no use for these devcoins.
I collected them from a faucet a while back. Not enough to bring into an exchange, so if anybody wants them, just tip me some bitcoin, and provide me with your DVC address.
Thanks, and sorry if this post is not appropriate :)

History of Bytecoin on www.coinmarketcap.com

Hello guys,
I want to show you something. Something I have in mind for a while. I don't know when it is time to show it, but maybe now when is quite. I very much regret that I don't have my first coinmarketcap printscreen when I started checking cryptocurrencies at 2012 but there are a lot of websites that do this :-)
https://web.archive.org/web/20130509235146/http://coinmarketcap.com/
It's for reflection. That where Bytecoin is after so many years :-) Bytecoin was created at 2012. It was listed in 2014 on coinmarketcap. The first printscreen available for domain www.coinmarketcap.com is 09.05.2013. I compared the ranking of the back then and the present. Interesting where Bytecoin is located back then and now.
I think Bytecoin is one of the most underrated projects in the whole cryptcurrencies world.

1. Bitcoin - Current Rank 1
2. Litecoin - Current Rank 6
  1. Namecoin - Current Rank 362
  2. PPCoin - Current Rank 440
  3. Feathercoin -Current Rank 607
  4. Terracoin - Current Rank 684
  5. Devcoin - not rank anymore
  6. Freicoin - Current Rank 1315
  7. Novacoin - Current Rank 960
  8. CHNcoin - not rank anymore
  9. BBQCoin - not rank anymore
  10. Ixcoin - Current Rank 1057
  11. Mincoin - Current Rank 1486
  12. BitBar - Current Rank 1469
15. Bytecoin - Current Rank 72

A brief history of the 2013 market peak; why some alts really do die; and what would've happened if you'd given in to FOMO

This piece is a follow-up to my earlier piece, which looked at what would’ve happened if you’d purchased alt-coins shortly after the bottom of the 2013-2015 bear market. A lot of the constructive criticism that I received was that I was too bullish on alt-coins, and that the timing was too convenient. Although it’s fair to say that I am bullish on crypto in general and alt-coins in particular (with several major caveats for both), I agree that it’s important to not just focus on historical analyses where it’s fairly clear that you could have earned money. So, today’s research question is whether you’d still be underwater if you’d bought in to the market at or near the 2013 all-time high. All information cited herein comes from the historical charts available at CoinMarketCap.
TL;DR: This worst-case scenario analysis shows that $300 invested equally across 15 of the 40 coins in existence near the market’s peak in 2013 would be worth only $429.95 today—gains which are entirely attributable to Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ripple. This is basic, but it can be dangerous to buy high. This is especially true of alt-coins, but even the top three coins in our sample saw fairly lackluster results when bought at the top of the market. Finally, nothing in this post should be taken as investment advice. This is only intended as historical analysis. Past performance does not guarantee future returns.
A Brief History of the 2013 Market Peak
According to CoinMarketCap, the 2013 bull market peaked on December 4, 2013, at ~$15.87 billion in market capitalization.* Thereafter, the market crashed dramatically not once, but twice. In the first crash, which occurred between December 5-8, 2013, overall market cap fell by ~39% to ~$9.66 billion. Then, after a brief recovery to ~$13.57 billion on December 10th, the market fell precipitously, to ~$5.7 billion on December 18, 2013. Thus, over the course of only two weeks, from December 4-18, 2013, the market lost ~64% of its value. Although this was by no means the end of the 2013-2015 bear market--which lasted for approximately 17 months and saw an additional decline of ~45% from the December 18, 2013 low--this was the end of the beginning.
What If I Bought Crypto Right as the 2013 Market Peaked?
Generally, the first rule of trading is** that you want to buy low and sell high. As a result of their fear of missing out (“FOMO”), however, many people find themselves accidentally buying high. Today, I’m going to look at what would have happened to someone who bought their crypto right as the market was peaking. Ideally, I would run this experiment from December 4, 2013, but due to the limited data available from CoinMarketCap, I’m forced to choose between November 24th, December 1st, December 8th, and December 15th. Of those dates, I have selected December 1, 2013, because it represents the worst possible scenario for which I have data. On that date, total crypto market cap, which had hit a new high of ~$15.4 billion the day before, swung wildly between a high of ~$14.83 billion and a low of ~$12.18 billion. Unfortunately, it’s unclear exactly when CoinMarketCap’s snapshot was taken. That said, it’s clear that our hypothetical FOMO trader is about to lose his shirt over the next few weeks, so let’s dive into the specifics.
On December 1, 2013, there were 40 coins listed on CoinMarketCap. I won’t list them all here, but of those 40, all but 11 are still listed as active on CoinMarketCap. The truly dead (or “inactive”) coins are BBQCoin (BQC; rank 16), Devcoin (DVC; rank 19), Tickets (TIX; rank 22), Copperlark (CLR; rank 24), StableCoin (SBC; rank 25), Luckycoin (LKY—ironic, I realize; rank 31), Franko (FRK; rank 34), Bytecoin (BTE; rank 35), Junkcoin (JKE—how apt; rank 36), CraftCoin (CRC; rank 39), and Colossuscoin (COL; rank 40).***
Now, since this post is already incredibly long, instead of testing all 40 coins, let’s take a decently-sized sample of five coins each from the top, middle, and bottom of the stack, and look at what happens. For the middle, although the temptation is to take decent alts, let’s fight that and take the group with the highest failure rate: ranks 21-25. So, here’s out pool:
Now, here are how our sample of coins has performed as of when I write this:****
So, if our hypothetical FOMO trader had invested $100 in our top-five sample near the 2013 peak, it would currently be worth $411.80 (the profitable coins) + $3.06 (PPC) + $4.27 (NMC) = $419.13—a 4.19x increase.
Now for the two coins in the middle five that didn’t completely die:
So, if our hypothetical FOMO trader had invested $100 in our middle-five sample near the 2013 peak, it would currently be worth ~$15.19—an ~84.8% loss.
Finally, here are the two coins from the bottom five that didn’t completely die:
So, excluding everything buy Argentum, if our hypothetical FOMO trader had invested $100 in our bottom-five sample near the 2013 peak, it would currently be worth ~$2.96—a ~97% loss. Putting it all together, $300 invested in this sample of 15 coins as close to the peak of the 2013 market as the data will let me get, would be worth $429.95—a disappointing, but not-unexpected ~30.2% increase over five years. That said, I’m honestly somewhat amazed our FOMO trader made anything at all on this basket of coins, considering how many of them failed. In any case, all of his gains came from the top-three coins from 2013: Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ripple.
Conclusions
What’s the lesson here, what’s the takeaway?***** Most importantly, I think the above analysis shows that it can be very dangerous to buy alt-coins when the market is at or near an all-time high—a conclusion that appears to be true regardless of where the alt is positioned in the market. That said, there are a few caveats: (1) this sample was intentionally bad, in order to reflect a worst-case scenario; (2) even buying the top-three coins at the all-time high didn’t net our FOMO trader particularly large gains when compared to someone who bought these same coins after the crash. Therefore, I think that the most important lesson here is not to buy high in the first place. Investing solely because of FOMO will probably cause you to lose money, unless you have invested equally in a broad range of cryptocurrencies, like the trader in our hypothetical. Even then, however, our FOMO trader probably would have done better investing in an S&P Index fund over the same period.
Endnotes
*This is a correction to my earlier piece, in which I stated that the cryptocurrency market peaked on November 30, 2013, at a total market capitalization of ~$15.2 billion. I made this error due to having failed to narrow the date range of the chart so I could properly zoon in. That said, the exact details of the market peak don’t affect the conclusions from my last piece, which considered trades made after the market had bottomed out.
** …you do not talk about trading. Wait, that’s the wrong rulebook.
*** Since I already typed it out, here’s the list of remaining active coins, in descending order: Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Ripple (XRP), Peercoin (PPC), Namecoin (NMC), Megacoin (MEC), Feathercoin (FTC), WorldCoin (WDC), Primecoin (XPM), Freicoin (FRC), Novacoin (NVC), Zetacoin (ZET), Infinitecoin (IFC), Terracoin (TRC), Crypto Bullion (CBX), Anoncoin (ANC), Digitalcoin (DGC), GoldCoin (GLD), Yacoin (YAC), Ixcoin (IXC), Fastcoin (FST), BitBar (BTB), Mincoin (MNC), Tagcoin (TAG), FlorinCoin (FLO), I0Coin (I0C), Phoenixcoin (PXC), Argentum (ARG), Elacoin (ELC)
**** I know that we could have sold them sooner, and probably for more money, but let’s just assume that our hypothetical FOMO trader was a founding member of the #hodlgang. ;-)
***** Don’t mess with Maui when he’s on a breakaway! You’re welcome. ;-)
Disclosures: I have previous held Litecoin, and currently hold approximately $140 of Ripple. I do not believe this influenced my analysis in any way. I have never bought or held any of the other coins discussed in this analysis.

Top Stories, Price Movements, Quotes and FUD of the Week

Top Stories, Price Movements, Quotes and FUD of the Week
Fractional Reserve Stablecoin Tether Only 74% Backed by Fiat Currency, Say Lawyers

According to documents released by USD stablecoin tether’s (USDT) lawyers, the company behind the stablecoin only has enough fiat reserves to back a little less than three-quarters of its existing supply — 74%. Tether executives had previously publicly promised that each tether was backed one-to-one to the USD, a claim that has been disproven by the lawyers’ document release. The need to release the figures comes from the recent claims by the U.S. attorney general in New York that cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex, which shares its CEO with Tether, used reserves to plug holes left from a problematic outsourcing agreement earlier in 2018. The document notes that the funds are invested, and the arrangement mimics a fractional reserve system.

WSJ: Facebook Seeks Reported $1 Billion for FB Coin Amid Talks With Visa, MasterCard

According to a report from the Wall Street Journal this week, social media giant Facebook is seeking investments worth $1 billion for its rumored cryptocurrency stablecoin. Citing unnamed sources, the WSJ writes that Facebook is currently talking with payment networks Visa and MasterCard about potential support for the plan. The project, known as FB Coin, has already been rumored for about a year, with various options for its form, including an option for payments on a combination of WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Instagram. As Cointelegraph has previously reported, interest in a fiat-centric FB Coin has already reportedly come from within cryptocurrency circles, specifically in the form of VC investment mogul Tim Draper. The WSJ notes that a large fiat backing is necessary in order to avoid volatility.

Vitalik Buterin Tweets ETH Development Proposals After Elon Musk’s “Ethereum” Tweet Bait

Elon Musk, tech entrepreneur and Tesla CEO, and Ethereum’s co-founder Vitalik Buterin engaged in a relatively one-sided Twitter discussion this week after Musk tweeted one word: “Ethereum.” In response, Buterin extended an invitation for Musk to attend Ethereum’s DevCoin in October, with Musk parrying back with a question concerning future Ethereum network development. Buterin then laid out a five-point list of his top picks for the network’s development: the creation of a “globally accessible financial system, including payments, store of value [...] insurance,” as well as a disintermediated ETH-powered digital identity infrastructure. He also proposed the creation of registries and certificates that would be digitally signed, certified and even revoked on-chain.

Someone explain to me the point of the bajillion coins out there?

I see all these coins like TRON, devcoin, Eos, etc. and I for the life of me can't understand what in the hell is the point of them. What do you use them for? Why are they nearly worthless? Why on Earth do some coins have billions of coins and are worth $0.00001?? There is a Forbes article saying
TRON has already transcended Bitcoin and Ethereum to become the first smart contract blockchain protocol with over 10 million (m) wallet users in the world.
How on Earth does TRON coin have over 10 million wallet users? Who is using it and why??

Calling on the Core devs to change their PoW algorithm

Summary: I think that it is time for the small-blockian BitcoinCore developers (nullc, pwuille, adam3us, luke-jr, petertodd, etc.) to use their proposed defense against miner attacks: namely, change the PoW algorithm of BitcoinCore so that the ASIC mining hardware cannot be used to mine it.
Explanation: Over the last 2 years I have argued many times in the forums, including with several BitcoinCore developers, that a mining cartel with a majority of the total hashpower could force a change of the protocol rules -- such as postponing the next halving for 2 years -- even against the desires of the major holders.
After much debating, their arguments against that claim were two. Firstly, they claimed that any such attempt by miners to change the 'consensus rules' would cause all holders to dump their hoards; so that the price would crash, negating any profit that the miners expected to get from it.
To that, I counter-claimed that the miners could well get enough public support to sustain the price, to the point that it would be better for holders to openly support it too, rather than oppose it and see their holdings become worthless. However, since that discussion depended on predicting how people would react, neither side was ale to convince the other.
Anyway, they secondly argued that, even if the miners did carry out such an attack, the developers would defeat them by changing the PoW algorithm with a hard fork. That would create a DevCoin branch of the blockchain that could not be mined by the existing ASICs. Then all users and holders would shun the CartelCoin branch, and upgrade their client apps to use the DevCoin. The miners would then be left mining a worthless coin, while the DevCoin would prosper on a network of CPUs and GPU miners.
Again, I tried to counter-argue that most of the value would remain on the CartelCore branch, with the familiar PoW algorithm and the 1000 PH/s network, rather than on the DevCore branch. But, again, the question depended on predicting human behavior, and stopped there.
Well BitcoinClassic -- that, according to the Core devs, is a hostile fork -- already has the support of 70% of the miners.
The price did drop a little, but almost certainly because of Mike's pessimistic statements, not because of that "attack". So the first line of defense failed: it looks like the miners will not be "punished" financially for lifting the size limit -- quite the opposite.
So, isn't it time for you to deploy the second and ultimate defense?

Supercharging primecoin and this subreddit

Hey folks,
So this subreddit hasn't been that popular and so I have some projects on the pipeline right now specifically based on primecoin that might be helpful. I have been working on these for a while and hope to get this all pushed out by June-July. This subreddit has a lot of potential and I think we can use it to promote primecoin!
  1. First and foremost: We need to spread more awareness about what primecoin is and how is it different, this is not your usual scrypt coin and has significant scientific value. I was thinking about making a 5-6 video course, like khan academy did for bitcoin on what primecoin is and how it's different. It's not that difficult to do but I need to have a better understanding of the basics and for that I need to ask you guys to point me to where to go in terms of literature and reading. Don't worry I'm not a n00b so I can catch on fairly quick.
  2. Another thing is the android wallet, I think it might be doable by forking one of the popular android wallets, I'm starting to work on it and will report my progress soon on it.
  3. We need to specifically purpose this coin, I love dogecoin because of the value behind it being used for tipping, in a way it shows respect towards the authomakecreator for what they have done on the internet. Any coin is only as good as the infrastructure supporting it so I will make a subreddit primecoininfra/ for that. I think primecoin can be used to re-purpose almost anything scientific. There are many projects out there for instance at CERN and so on, that we can donate to. Another area really is research for non-profits for diseases and the like, so that's one way to go about it and get publicity, trust me fellows if we give primcoin the kickstart that it needs, it will rise very very easily.
  4. Going off what I mentioned in 3, I will be launching a primecoin startup support platform. What that means is, it will be just like a sort of kickstarter but for scientific projects only. These projects will require moderate amount of funding and thus can be launched with moderate community interest.
  5. Another thing from the kickstarter that I would like to do is to build a stocks-platform for lifescience (there can be other categories) ventures. The idea here would be to open up new venues for folks to propose their startup-ideas who already have some funding. Then to get more funding for development they can post a kickstarter backer reward type system, if you give us x amount, you'll get y amount of shares of this startup, if that makes any sense. This again is all to purpose primecoin sort of how devcoin is made to support open source porjects and so on.
Primecoin can be the backbone of promoting startups and the scientific economy. What do you guys think? Please let me know more about your thoughts and if you guys are working on similar projects. PM me if you're interested on working on some of this stuff with me, I'd love to get more ppl to work on these projects!

Which Cryptocurrencies do you own and why?

I own Bitcoin, Litecoin and Devcoin. Reasoning: all three have survived for several years and seem impervious to a 51% attack - so all they need is to develop some ecommerce features to make them valuable. (I think Devcoin has potential as a gambling currency as a lot of coins are generated which means people will only be betting whole coins - psychologically Devcoin is like a casino chip - I wouldn't want to gamble with Bitcoin, I'd hoard that).
What say you?

Coin Categories??

Ok so I was an early adopter of bitcoin and it has been a fantastic ride but my love affair just ended today. With the continual rise of transaction costs and forks and the fact that I made a GREAT return on it....it just seemed time. So now I am thinking to invest in one of the many new coins BUT......wow....there are so many. I have been searching (to no avail) for a site that shows all (or at least a lot of) the coins broken down into some kind of categories. It would be nice to break all these down into some kind of categories so a person could do their own analysis as to who is best in class. As an example (at least from what I understand):
Category: Anonymous Coins - Monero, Verge, Dash, Zcash Public Good/Charity Type Coins - Curecoin, Devcoin, Safecoin
So that's pretty much it. I am just looking for a good place to get some basic information and to see who each coins' competitors are and then make my decisions. Appreciate any help! Thanks!

Introducing inuit - cold storage address generator for crypto-currency portfolios

I have a modest and mixed portfolio of crypto-currencies which I wanted to take off-line and put into cold storage. I found that to do this I would have to generate paper wallets for each currency using a different paper wallet generator each time. What I really wanted was a single application that could generate addresses and private keys for multiple currencies so that I could install it on a Raspberry Pi or Linux Live USB stick. This would allow me to cold store all my currencies in one place and with a small amount of effort.
To this end I have created inuit, cold storage address generator for crypto-currency portfolios.
For more information, take a look at the website http://inuit-wallet.co.uk
inuit is written in Python and the source code is available on github. It is still in active development and features will be added as time and demand allow.
I hope you find inuit as useful as I do. If you have any questions or suggestions, leave a comment on the website or email (details on the website)

Currently Circulating Cryptocurrencies

Pretty new to the scene. But, as far as I can tell, the list of current digital cryptocurrencies is as follows (Name/Abbreviation/target coin#):
Bitcoin, BTC, 21 million
Litecoin, LTC, 84 million
Feathercoin , FTC,~4xLTC
Terracoin, TRC, 42 million
Peer to Peer Coin, PPC, unlimited/undertermined
Namecoin, NMC,?
Devcoin, DVC, ? IxCoin, IXC, 21 million
Novacoin, NVC, 2 billion, but open
Ven, Ven, ? , http://www.vencurrency.com/
Liquidcoin, LQC, unlimited
I0coin, I0C, ? (maybe dead)
Freicoin, FRC, 100 million
Also: Yacoin and Chinacoin (CNC) are being sold on eBay as new "cryptocurrencies. First time I've seen them.
Missing any? Thoughts on the list? Thoughts on particular currencies? Which are rising, falling, dead, dying? Should we collect them all? A few? Which ones? How would you rank them from best to worst?
Right now, I just have a few BTC, LTC and PPC. Thinking about a couple others.
Note: I didn't rank them in any particular order. Just how they came to mind or as I researched them.

What's the deal with Devcoin these days?

So, I've been merge mining Devcoin and Namecoin alongside Bitcoin forever... but I haven't seen or heard any news or posts about Devcoin over the past year. There hasn't been any commit's to their Github repo in a year either. I see it's still available for trading on Cryptsy but at low volume. So what's the deal? Is it dead? Any sense in still merge mining it?

Just so you know, when mining at Elgius, it may take days (weeks even) to get the BTC you mined

I started off asking here http://www.reddit.com/BitcoinMining/comments/223w7e/i_am_a_new_miner_lots_of_ghashio_seems_real_good/ as a new miner, where I should mine. I read about the 51% attack thing and decided to change from GHAsh.io to someplace else.
I got some advice to try Eligius. I switched my miner to there and started mining.
The website to track your mining progress times out half the time. It is extremely annoying. At the evil pool (ghash.io) I get Namecoin and devcoin as a side-dish without trying. I saw that Eligius has a place to put a namecoin address so I thought at least that was cool. There is no place on the site that I could find that allows me to see how much Namecoin I am collecting.
The website itself was so slow and timed out half the time I decided to try another pool. I collected over .015 so the website said I could collect my BTC. I configured it to do so having to put in a digital signature manifested from my BTC wallet. All succeeded (after about 12 times timing out at the submit).
The message I got was I am #957 in a queue waiting for my BTC to be collected.
You can try to navigate here to see
http://eligius.st/~wizkid057/newstats/userstats.php/1Hgb3Z4VBmzhnyfRAHCrFGmVCWoftAmAsv
I just couldnt go to bed tonight thinking maybe another noobie miner like myself would get suckered into going to this site. It seems like such a scam.
When I mined with Slushpool and ghash.io, the payouts were in the range to seconds to minutes. Eligius may take weeks for .015.
I just feel like I got ripped off and needed to tell people.
