perfectcoin: the quest for the perfect cryptocurrency

Many cryptocurrencies exist now, with more being launched all the time. This subreddit is not about any one cryptocurrency, but instead a place to exchange links and ideas about what makes the best altcoin and how to improve on features of current altcoins.

I started crypto exactly 1 year ago, this is how I feel now

Well, I actually first heard about Bitcoin in the news, in May 2017. Companies were getting hacked and needed to pay with Bitcoin in order to get all their data back. This was all over the news. So I started doing some searches, not research, because I found a site where I could pay with fiat and bought literally random coins. I bought all the cheap ones thinking they would one day reach the same level as BTC. I bought Myriad, Reddcoin, Doge, Gulden, Peercoin, Feathercoin, ArtByte, Stratis, Waves, … I had no idea what I was doing. Chased some silly pumps. I also bought some Litecoin, which turned out really good. Litecoin was about $25 back in May-June. On May 31, 2017 total marketcap was $80B.
I started to learn about different exchanges (Bittrex) and bought the shilled coins on Bitcointalk; Digibyte, Siacoin, ... Then things started to go down, some coins were crashing and I saw my numbers going in red, every single one of them expect Litecoin. Thought about selling but didn’t. Looking back at this “crash”, it is a joke compared to what is happening now (February-June 2018).
I also experienced the China FUD. Literally thought crypto was dead back in November 2017. Never seen so much FUD before on Reddit. Chinese exchanges had to close, volume was dropping, everyone was selling. Scary. Looking back at it now, this was a joke as well, as FUD started to clear and 2-3 days later, the market was already recovering and going up even more. We all know what happened in mid-December 2017 and some of us were lucky enough to cash out at the right moment, some people HODL. Before this, these were also the days were we didn’t get as much positive news as we do now. Watch this sub and show me negative FUD posts.
I sold all of my shit and started over in December, started doing actual research (not going to name the coins here because of shilling) and I have now invested in coins I really believe in. Some of them are up, some are not but that’s because the market is still down. The one I believe most in is 50% down and sure, it hurts a little bit to see my money disappear haha but I have good faith that this will bring me a lot of fortune in the future.
The crash right now doesn’t really affect me. I’m buying more batches whenever I can and sure, they can still go down and I might have invested a little more than I can afford to lose, but I am seeing this as a long term. Long term isn’t a year, it’s 5-10 years and it’s money I don’t need right now. You can sell now, and buy back in later if it drops more, or you can HODL and not care about this for a few months or years. We will continue to see these crashes, probably even worse than this one and that’s why it’s important to zoom out. Look back a year ago, look back 2-3 years ago ;-)

10 obscure altcoins that merit a closer look by investors, with descriptions and reasoning for each

Disclaimer: I own varying small amounts of the currencies listed below, and as such it’s in my interest to see them gain in popularity. Keeping that in mind, you should examine these with a critical eye and decide for yourself whether they are good investments for you. If you disagree with my rationale for liking a particular currency, please say so and include your reasons. Likewise, if you think there are other obscure currencies I haven’t mentioned that also deserve consideration, please post them here. Please, no tokens in this discussion thread – currencies only.
At some point I got bored with hodling ether, and decided to dig deeper into altcoins in hopes of finding greater returns. My thinking is that if I can find a few promising projects that are on the verge of growth – not necessarily world domination, but just growth – and catch them early enough, I stand a greater chance of finding one that is going to grow 2x, 10x, or more. I figured, what the hell, I’ll put $10 on a bunch of long shots. If one fails then I lose $10, but if it succeeds and the price goes from $0.002 to $0.12 then I will achieve a 60x return on my initial investment.
With that goal in mind, over the past week I took a deep dive into the 800+ currencies that are ranked by market cap at http://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/views/all/ . I ignored the top 25 and kept digging deeper, mostly looking at those ranked 150 and higher. In evaluating each currency I used their market cap rank as a proxy for popularity. My thinking is that the list is not necessarily ordered correctly according to each project’s potential (because market knowledge isn't perfect). There are dead projects in the top 100 and more promising ones in the mid-300’s. I am looking to help reorder the list by investing in coins that are at, for example, rank 287 but deserve to be at 137 based on their fundamentals.
None of the currencies I found are on the verge of becoming the next Ethereum-killer. Again, I’m not looking for coins that will achieve world domination. I’m just looking for ones that deserve to be higher in the rankings than they are, so I can invest in them very early before others start to recognize their potential. They should have at least one fundamental quality that gives them a glimmer of promise for growth.
With all that out of the way, here are some of the obscure currencies I came to like, listed in order of their current market cap ranking (i.e. from least to most obscure):
GULDEN (currently #77)
Site: https://gulden.com/
Profile: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/gulden/
Reason: Gulden is a project based in the Netherlands that is focusing on user experience with a great level of attention to detail (including the intial sync time and onboarding experience). They are trying to make their apps very intuitive and easy for the average user. They have a large concentration of users in the Netherlands, dozens of Dutch merchants who already accept the currency, a strategic relationship with payment processor Nocks.co, and a program to airdrop starter currency to all Dutch citizens. They are starting to catch on in neighboring countries, and given their ease of use it’s possible they could end up becoming the WhatsApp of money transfer in Western Europe.
All of those things are promising but not earth-shattering by themselves. Here’s another reason I’m bullish on Gulden: they are one of only a handful of currencies that can be exchanged directly for fiat. One of the reasons that Bitcoin is so big is that it is the main on-ramp to the crypto world for most people. Gulden makes it easy too - you can purchase it from their home page using Euros. If Bitcoin becomes difficult to use around August 1, or if exchanges continue to be slow at verifying new accounts, I can see Gulden catching on among Europeans as a fast, easy way to initially convert fiat to crypto form.
VERTCOIN (currently #109)
Site: http://vertcoin.org/
Profile: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/vertcoin/
Reason: Like many currencies, Vertcoin is a direct fork of Bitcoin. The Vertcoin founders wanted to make it ASIC-resistant so it would remain more decentralized. I first discovered it in 2014 and was impressed by it then. Since then, it has been chugging along reliably, and the dev team has added stealth addresses, SegWit, and Lightning network. It’s arguably a better Bitcoin than Bitcoin at this point. I think of it as part of a family that consists of BTC, LTC, and VTC. Vertcoin is the lesser known cousin, but I think it’s about to become much more visible because cross-chain atomic swaps with Litecoin will soon be possible. The code is already done on the Vertcoin side and at this point is just waiting on Litecoin to reach that step in their roadmap. Surely with all these things going for it, Vertcoin will end up in the top 100.
FEATHERCOIN (currently #134)
Site: http://feathercoin.com/
Profile: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/feathercoin/
Reason: Another Bitcoin fork that uses a different algorithm. Has a decent infrastructure around it, and an active user base. Seems to have longevity as it’s been around since 2013. I can’t speak to whether the algorithm changes offer any long-term advantages over Bitcoin. All in all it seemed solid enough to drop $10 on. I’ll park it and check back in a few years.
RISE (currently #193)
Site: https://rise.vision/
Profile: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/rise/
Reason: Rise was launched in 2016 to much fanfare, with promise of GUI-based Dapp development tools (i.e. drag & drop dapps for end users) and well-documented SDKs for all of the popular programming languages (Ruby, Node, Python, etc.) plus a bunch of other goodies. It didn’t come to fruition. From what I can gather, there are accusations and rumors that someone scammed the project out of ICO funds and disappeared. In recent months, the project has been completely rebooted by some of the original community. It has adopted a new hybrid Ark-Shift blockchain, and is in the process of swapping over to that with the help of the Bittrex exchange. They’re also busy checking in SDKs to Github, and bringing social media back online. Is it going to be the next Ethereum killer? Who knows, but it definitely seems like it’s destined for a higher ranking than #193, and it definitely seems like a steal given the current low market cap and price. Like, the upside potential seems enormous on this if they see things through with the reboot. I’ve not bet the farm on Rise, but I’ve definitely put a couple extra cows on it compared to the other ones in this list.
ARTBYTE (currently #207)
Site: http://www.artbyte.me/
Profile: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/applebyte/
Reason: This is yet another currency that is designed for a specific market – in this case, the art world. I generally don’t see a future for sector-specific currencies as they offer no advantages over using a general-purpose currency. What caught my eye about this one is that the team’s social media game is on point. They are tirelessly reaching out to artists to promote the currency and build name recognition. I admire their tenacity and think it could result in them gaining a toehold and eventually pivoting to some specific use within the art world. Total long shot, but I figure it doesn’t hurt to put $10 on it and check back in 10 years to see if it’s still around.
MYRIAD (currently #220)
Site: http://myriadcoin.org
Profile: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/myriad/
Reason: Multi-algorithm coin with good visual branding and an active community around it. I am not in love with its fundamentals and don’t see it catching on in a huge way, but just the fact that the project is alive makes it deserving of a higher rank than #220 IMHO. There are far worse coins than this one in the top 200. So, I’m betting here on slight growth rather than world domination.
HUSH (currently #235)
Site: https://myhush.org/
Profile: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/hush/
Reason: Hush is a private implementation of the "Zerocash" protocol, and was forked from Zcash in spring 2017 by one of the contributors to that project. It has a decent web site, a small and dedicated team that seems technically competent, plenty of recent Github activity, and a relatively low current market cap. I’m betting that Hush will rise from #235 to somewhere in the mid-100s.
AUDIOCOIN (currently #239)
Site: http://www.audiocoin.eu/
Profile: http://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/audiocoin/
Reason: This team has at least made an attempt at developing a coherent business model. I’m not real convinced at this point that it’s viable, but they seem passionate about it and with some time may be able to refine it. I can see it someday being a backbone marketplace for musicians and listeners, based on audio streaming credits. Given that the price is so low, I’ll buy a tiny bit and check back in 10 years.
SMARTCOIN (currently #355)
Site: http://smartcoin.cc/
Profile: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/smartcoin/
Reason: Seems like a solid, functional coin with decent branding, infrastructure, and user base – at least, much moreso than other coins in the mid-350’s. I’m betting that it will eventually rise to the low 200’s.
SLIMCOIN (currently #862)
Site: http://slimco.in/
Profile: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/slimcoin/
Reason: Slimcoin is another project that was left for dead but recently revived. It uses a technique called Proof-of-Burn (PoB) and is designed for energy efficiency and use on small devices. This currency is easily more viable than at least 600 of the other defunct joke currencies above it in the list. I placed a bet that this one will rise from rank #862 to somewhere in the 200’s or 300’s.
Again, if you think I’m full of shit on these picks, please post below. If I’m making a bad investment on any of these, I definitely want to know about it. Similarly, if there are any other dark horse coins you think people should know about, list ‘em below and make sure to include reasons – not just the name of the coin.

Crypto Mining for Beginners. Is it really worth it?

Crypto Mining for Beginners. Is it really worth it?

Image from blokt.com
Mining cryptocoins is an arms race that rewards early adopters. You might have heard of Bitcoin, the first decentralized cryptocurrency that was released in early 2009. Similar digital currencies have crept into the worldwide market since then, including a spin-off from Bitcoin called Bitcoin Cash. You can get in on the cryptocurrency rush if you take the time to learn the basics properly.

Which Alt-Coins Should Be Mined?


Image from btcwarp.com
If you had started mining Bitcoins back in 2009, you could have earned thousands of dollars by now. At the same time, there are plenty of ways you could have lost money, too. Bitcoins are not a good choice for beginning miners who work on a small scale. The current up-front investment and maintenance costs, not to mention the sheer mathematical difficulty of the process, just doesn't make it profitable for consumer-level hardware. Now, Bitcoin mining is reserved for large-scale operations only.
Litecoins, Dogecoins, and Feathercoins, on the other hand, are three Scrypt-based cryptocurrencies that are the best cost-benefit for beginners.
Dogecoins and Feathercoins would yield slightly less profit with the same mining hardware but are becoming more popular daily. Peercoins, too, can also be a reasonably decent return on your investment of time and energy.
As more people join the cryptocoin rush, your choice could get more difficult to mine because more expensive hardware will be required to discover coins. You will be forced to either invest heavily if you want to stay mining that coin, or you will want to take your earnings and switch to an easier cryptocoin. Understanding the top 3 bitcoin mining methods is probably where you need to begin; this article focuses on mining "scrypt" coins.
Also, be sure you are in a country where bitcoins and bitcoin mining is legal.

Is It Worth It to Mine Cryptocoins?

As a hobby venture, yes, cryptocoin mining can generate a small income of perhaps a dollar or two per day. In particular, the digital currencies mentioned above are very accessible for regular people to mine, and a person can recoup $1000 in hardware costs in about 18-24 months.
As a second income, no, cryptocoin mining is not a reliable way to make substantial money for most people. The profit from mining cryptocoins only becomes significant when someone is willing to invest $3000-$5000 in up-front hardware costs, at which time you could potentially earn $50 per day or more.

Set Reosonable Expectations

If your objective is to earn substantial money as a second income, then you are better off purchasing cryptocoins with cash instead of mining them, and then tucking them away in the hopes that they will jump in value like gold or silver bullion. If your objective is to make a few digital bucks and spend them somehow, then you just might have a slow way to do that with mining.
Smart miners need to keep electricity costs to under $0.11 per kilowatt-hour; mining with 4 GPU video cards can net you around $8.00 to $10.00 per day (depending upon the cryptocurrency you choose), or around $250-$300 per month.
The two catches are:
1) The up-front investment in purchasing 4 ASIC processors or 4 AMD Radeon graphic processing units
2) The market value of cryptocoins
Now, there is a small chance that your chosen digital currency will jump in value alongside Bitcoin at some point. Then, possibly, you could find yourself sitting on thousands of dollars in cryptocoins. The emphasis here is on "small chance," with small meaning "slightly better than winning the lottery."
If you do decide to try cryptocoin mining, definitely do so as a hobby with a very small income return. Think of it as "gathering gold dust" instead of collecting actual gold nuggets. And always, always, do your research to avoid a scam currency.

How Cryptocoin Mining Works

Let's focus on mining scrypt coins, namely Litecoins, Dogecoins, or Feathercoins. The whole focus of mining is to accomplish three things:
- Provide bookkeeping services to the coin network. Mining is essentially 24/7 computer accounting called "verifying transactions."
- Get paid a small reward for your accounting services by receiving fractions of coins every couple of days.
- Keep your personal costs down, including electricity and hardware.

The Laundry List: What You Will Need to Mine Cryptocoins


https://preview.redd.it/gx65tcz0ncg31.jpg?width=1280&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=f99b79d0ff96fe7d529dc20d52964b46306fb070
You will need ten things to mine Litecoins, Dogecoins, and/or Feathercoins.
1) A free private database called a coin wallet. This is a password-protected container that stores your earnings and keeps a network-wide ledger of transactions.
2) A free mining software package, like this one from AMD, typically made up of cgminer and stratum.
3) A membership in an online mining pool, which is a community of miners who combine their computers to increase profitability and income stability.
4) Membership at an online currency exchange, where you can exchange your virtual coins for conventional cash, and vice versa.
5) A reliable full-time internet connection, ideally 2 megabits per second or faster speed.
6) A hardware setup location in your basement or other cool and air-conditioned space.
7) A desktop or custom-built computer designed for mining. Yes, you may use your current computer to start, but you won't be able to use the computer while the miner is running. A separate dedicated computer is ideal. Do not use a laptop, gaming console or handheld device to mine. These devices just are not effective enough to generate income.
8) An ATI graphics processing unit (GPU) or a specialized processing device called a mining ASIC chip. The cost will be anywhere from $90 used to $3000 new for each GPU or ASIC chip. The GPU or ASIC will be the workhorse of providing the accounting services and mining work.
10) A house fan to blow cool air across your mining computer. Mining generates substantial heat, and cooling the hardware is critical for your success.
11) You absolutely need a strong appetite of personal curiosity for reading and constant learning, as there are ongoing technology changes and new techniques for optimizing coin mining results. The most successful coin miners spend hours every week studying the best ways to adjust and improve their coin mining performance.

Trolling Scammers in Telegram

I had some fun trolling this particular scammer, and figured I'd share.
This one really took quite a long time to figure out that I was stringing him along. I figured he'd have clued in way before he did.
I think he finally clued in at the bit about a Nigerian prince, which wasn't even the most ridiculous thing in there.

Ryan Smyth, [26.03.18 16:39] Let me check if anyone has any BCH left for marketing. Is BCH ok? We had some of that.
DataDash, [26.03.18 16:39] I will wait
Ryan Smyth, [26.03.18 16:39] Like, BCH is the real Bitcoin.
Ryan Smyth, [26.03.18 16:39] It follows Satoshi's vision, don't you think?
Ryan Smyth, [26.03.18 16:40] Probably the best coin out there right now is Ripple though. XRP is awesome. Do you have any?
DataDash, [26.03.18 16:40] Not right now
Ryan Smyth, [26.03.18 16:40] You should get some. XRP is the future.
Ryan Smyth, [26.03.18 16:41] Oh, should I trade to give you XRP?
Ryan Smyth, [26.03.18 16:41] Just looking in the exchange right now.
Ryan Smyth, [26.03.18 16:41] Lots of $DOGE there.
Ryan Smyth, [26.03.18 16:41] Should I buy XRP? or BCH. BCH is the real Bitcoin.
DataDash, [26.03.18 16:45] Send me the following 1. The whitepaper of the ICO
Ryan Smyth, [26.03.18 16:45] It's on the website.
DataDash, [26.03.18 16:45] FAQ'S
DataDash, [26.03.18 16:45] Why do you think the ico is unique
DataDash, [26.03.18 16:45] A detailed information of the ceo
Ryan Smyth, [26.03.18 16:46] Should I buy XRP or BCH for you now? I'm on the exchange.
Ryan Smyth, [26.03.18 16:46] Oh, $REDD! That's a great coin.
DataDash, [26.03.18 16:46] Give me a few minutes
DataDash, [26.03.18 16:46] What's your official website
Ryan Smyth, [26.03.18 16:46] Want me to buy that?
Ryan Smyth, [26.03.18 16:46] https://chimaera.io/

Ryan Smyth, [26.03.18 16:47] Yeah, but XRP is better, and everyone knows BCH is the REAL Bitcoin. It follows Satoshi's vision.
Ryan Smyth, [26.03.18 16:47] You can save on transfer fees if I just buy that for you.

Trolling Scammers in Telegram

I had some fun trolling this particular scammer, and figured I'd share.
This one really took quite a long time to figure out that I was stringing him along. I figured he'd have clued in way before he did.
I think he finally clued in at the bit about a Nigerian prince, which wasn't even the most ridiculous thing in there.

Ryan Smyth, [26.03.18 16:38] Oh, I have an old Feathercoin wallet. I'm sure I've got some $FTC. Will that do?

Ryan Smyth, [26.03.18 16:39] It follows Satoshi's vision, don't you think?

Nyancoins Megapost - Central Link Collection

Edit: Going to finally start an overhaul on this (April 23rd, 2016); it's been six months since the last edit. I'm going to go from current back, so there's going to be a gap between this top, new stuff and what's below until I finish the update.
I'm just going to have the last six months all shoved together into one large update here. There's weak categorization, but basically just think of it as a huge list. In general, the newer items will be higher within a given category than the older items. I apologize if I left anything out which people would like to see included. Some things I considered more of a temporary update than something relevant months later, but just PM me and I'll add anything requested!
We're currently in a quiet low point. Nothing catastrophic is happening, but we are relatively weak. I call it "the best nadir" because if this is as bad as it gets, we're doing alright. The price is down to 4 satoshi now, which is the lowest sustained price since the beginning of the revival. I'm going on a year behind my original goal for releasing NYAN2, still stuck on a new build computer (alternately time and energy to cripple together a build system out of what I have available).
One major new element: I've set a goal for us to have a mission to visit the site of Apollo 17 in twenty years. This is basically a new dimension. For the first ten years, I envision this as a purely "paper program", doing research on past space programs, in particular Mercury through Apollo, but any and all launch platforms and spacecraft which have been done. We may additionally seek to gain additional education (for instance, I would like aerospace engineering and material science undergraduate degrees at a minimum; we also are going to need experienced test pilots).
Space Program Initial Vision: [NYAN 2035] We must send a mission to visit the site of the Apollo 17 plaque on the Moon
Also, I've replaced the previous "Nekonauts of the Month" competition with a "Who Wants to be a Nillionaire?". The major difference is that rather than relying upon me to track everything, the expectation is that Nekonauts will sign up and self-report accomplishments.

The faucet is down temporarily at time of this writing, but it'll be back up before I update this section likely. The price offered there is low (mailing list mentioning 200-300 satoshi currently; my offer is worth about 2 satoshi currently); I would consider higher, but probably wouldn't pay those apparent market rates (no actual exchange yet).

General
Catch-all category. Okay, this category got out of hand. I should do a second round later and break this out into a few different ones.
The best argument I've heard so far for keeping the 1MB cap in Bitcoin - I still think it would have been better for Bitcoin to grow, but this is the strongest argument for its stagnation in capacity that I've seen.
[conceptual design] How we should expect 100,000 transactions in a minute (or second?) to be handled - This is about the idea that we should expect to be able to handle large loads without crashing. Pretty basic. Related to an /cryptocurrency post I'd made: 100,000 Transactions Per Second: How Do We Get There?, which gives a very high-level overview of one way to reach high throughput capacity using blockchains.
Interesting cryptocurrency to try: raiblocks, protocol without transaction fees or block rewards - I think Raiblocks will be a valuable "companion coin" to Nyancoins ultimately. I don't know how exactly that'll work, but I believe that good cryptocurrency communities should make alliances. If nothing else, we can be valuable to each other as the "loyal opposition", critics who want to see success.

Hodling Update: 30% - I haven't done the math recently. I'm probably within 5% of this, but I don't know if I've gone up or down. I haven't given away a whole lot, but I have put no new money into Nyancoins for months from being so broke. I've still gained some millions more from when my 5 satoshi bids got hit though.
[finance] Up? Down? Horizontal? - Considering 30 - It's pretty sad how far we are from 30 satoshi now (4 satoshi at the moment). I believe we'll get it back ultimately, but the revival certainly hasn't had the financial success I'd hoped.

I think I'm done with this update (at least getting the new content in; I have not changed the old text and content, which is everything below).
Since I can only have one thing stickied at a time, but there are a lot of different things going on, I've switched over to having one main link collection post. And this is it.
I'll update this periodically (I'll try to do a major update once a month) and might replace it at some point. It'll have general discussion of the context behind why these various threads are significant.
I'm doing August and September together for Nekonaut awards and updates here since I got a bit busy at work. NYAN2 is released as a first-draft, but I haven't built it yet (nor done final changes and fixes). I need a computer with more RAM than what I have available to me now. However, I'm quite satisfied with the performance of NYAN1.2, ancient though it may be, so I'm not treating it as an emergency.
The biggest news is that we are now listed on cryptopia.co.nz ! They are a great community and provide better ecosystem support than most exchanges: they include a pool and explorer along with the exchange. And their exchange has a lot of basepairs, with NYAN/BTC, NYAN/UNO, NYAN/DOGE, and NYAN/DOT being relatively active, NYAN/LTC being quiet, and the other two (popularcoin and feathercoin) being unfamiliar to me and generally unused.
Oh, also, when I've taken a look at it, the Nyanchain seems to be running smoothly. I haven't been watching too closely, but the status page is usually showing all green. I especially like seeing the high number of connections (generally close to 30). [Comment from July version; still accurate. I should get automated metrics on the Nyanchain someday, but in the meantime, it seems to be moving pretty smoothly anecdotally.]
Top stories from August and Septemberish
Nekonauts of the Months, August and September 2015 - Combined awards, three awards for 1M as a result, and such. Just check it out. :-)

Classic Posts
Why Nyancoin will hit $1/NYAN (and much more). We're going to space, and you're invited! - This is an infamous post by americanpegasus. I believe it was actually someone mocking him in /bitcoin by linking to this which first made me aware that Nyancoins existed, and got the idea in my head that it was a deadcoin (from seeing a post/comments on the sub at the time which claimed that). So the dream of this post was actually so bold that it brought it back from the grave, because it was bold enough to be mocked, and that mockery eventually led me to investigate it, and that investigation led me to fall in love.
1Ɲ >= 1Đ - This is a vision I have, that we shall rise above DOGE. This is not a dig against DOGE but merely a statement about the growth I expect to see us have. There are about 500x as many Dogecoins as there are Nyancoins, so even if we remain significantly smaller we can easily pass their unit price. We've done so briefly previously but are currently below this mark.
We choose to go to the Moon - This is my manifesto about why I am doing this. Cribbed from JFK's moon speech, it is meant to express that it is because of, not in spite of, the challenges that we face that I am here. This started out as a personal challenge. While I certainly would like to get rich off of this, the reason I chose to pursue this is because if we do then, then we're awesome badasses that people can be impressed by.
The original Nyancoins intro video - wasn't really sure where to categorize this
Older stories
I'll move stories down here as they get older. For now it's the block stoppage stuff as that seems to have stabilized.
Holy shit, 22 hours since the last block. At this rate, I'm going to have to start solving hashes by hand... - This was my post about the block stoppage.
Difficulty has spiked again; if we hit another stall I'll try the transaction fee trick again - Another block stoppage, and a record of my attempt to use the same trick to break it loose again (transaction fee incentive).
I'm ready to give up on life; in which coinaday finally has his full-blown mental breakdown. So long, and thanks for all the rainbows! - My personal mental breakdown. Just listed here because it made an impact. Also, it was an amazing response from the community which meant a lot to me.
Fuck it; encore une fois - My reaction afterward, saying that I'll give things another shot.
GFS
Disregard the below: GFS has been down for a few months and probably won't be back. At one point, this project had been offered to me, and perhaps I should have taken it, but I felt like I was already heavily committed here and couldn't take that on as well. It's a shame that no one managed to keep it running though. I really liked the idea.
Disregard the below: it's back down again, last I checked. Not sure what to link on that. The new bot got mildly political again / referenced being a shadowbanned user, and bam. I'm not sure where this is going to go now, if anywhere. Although I suppose the on-blockchain stuff isn't affected, and I'd wager go1dfish will do something again.
/GetFairShare will be attempting another distribution today; go try it out! - GetFairShare is back! Go get free money!
I don't really understand what's going on, but apparently the bot used for /GetFairShare got banned - Some background on GFS having gone down
I think that this will continue to be useful as we gain a larger and larger volume of posts and help me not have to worry about burying something significant posted a couple weeks back or something.
Also, right now I'm just gleaning from the frontpage, but I'll add in some great classic posts too.
Let me know in the comments if there are other posts you'd like to see added here.

The future of Dogecoin: My perspective

Hi. I'm new to Reddit. This is my first post submission. That being said, I thought I'd say my opinion about where I think Doge is heading.
I've been on BTC-e for a month. Not a long time if I do say myself, but I've seen the highs and now the new lows, as well as the ridiculous troll box at work. Fontas is gone(or is he?) and the moon seems farther away than ever before because China recently travelled there.
I think we all know what is holding Bitcoin back, and likewise Dogecoin. I will list them off:
[b]1.) China is cracking down on Bitcoin's mainstream usage in China. It doesn't want their banks involved and it certainly doesn't want people using it as a means to avoid paying taxes. Yet, they have not banned it. Other than China not liking how Bitcoin may take away from their tax revnues and their attempts to clamp down on corruption and money laundering, China actually is fine with Bitcoin. It is fine with Bitcoin because it competes with the US dollar and will help, as a device, medium, or what have you, to upsurp the position of the USD as the international currency reserve. China has made calls for the USD to be replaced with a new international reserve currency. As it stands, the pump and jumps, volatility of the "currency", and how it has no centralized control will prevent it from becoming an international currency any time soon. This is a catch22. My point is as long as it doesn't fuck with China's tax dollars and encourage corruption, then it is here to stay with China.
2.) Christmas and New Years. It is that time of season. People are withdrawing their volumes in order to take their profits for obvious reasons and personal gain. If you got rich from Bitcoin, why wouldn't you treat yourself, significant other, or someone with a present, or nice celebration, or whatever using the profits from Bitcoin a person has made?
3.) Crash. It happened, and people followed by selling off and others cut their loses. But the "currency" currently remains between $600-700. Confidence will slowly return as people buy back into it in the New Year. Volumes will increase. And then it will return to it's previous high of of $1300-ish and even go beyond as many speculate.
4.) Speculation. And Altcurrencies. As well as Pump and Dumps.
This all affects Dogecoin and drives down it's worth and volume. The worth of Dogecoin is pegged to Bitcoin just like any altcoin is. And as more Dogecoin is produced using methods of quantative easing, the value of the currency will also go down. So then, how can it go up?
1.) Demand. Volumes of dogecoin must go up on the exchanges. Reddit and 4chan is doing a good thing by distributing the currency, and as it receives more mainstream media attention, it will entice others to pick up this awesome currency too. Demand will increase as it becomes more popular and widespread.
2.) Marketplace - If dogecoin can go the way of bitcoin in that it becomes widely accepted, then people can use Dogecoin to buy things. We are starting to see this now on Reddit as well as other places, which will increase demand for Dogecoin. The problem is that it will be competing against Bitcoin and Litecoin primarily.
3.) Competition and marketing - Dogecoin will be competing with the other altcurrencies, primarily Bitcoin and Litecoin, so why should people buy Dogecoin over Litecoin, or Dogecoin over Bitcoin? What does Doge have that those two don't? Or what makes it a better investment? Dogecoin should be more than just a memecoin that is a joke, which is now it, but how do we convey this idea to the populace on a greater scale where it can be more widely accepted? As it gains wider acceptance, the value of it will go up and we may even find it on popular exchanges such as BTC-e. If it were to be on BTC-e, I'm speculating that it would be at least $1 per Doge since everything there is at least $1. That would be a big milestone for us, and it goes back to demand and marketing for Dogecoin. It can't just be a meme coin. It has to be more than that.
4.) Confidence. As I've seen on this forum, people are asking "Why is Dogecoin going down in value." Pump and dumps, christmas, and the crash of Bitcoin have shaken the confidence of the coin, not of the core supporters and believers, but of investors. I have never mined one single Dogecoin. I went all in and now my investment has decreased by 3x. That really sucks for me, but luckily I can afford to lose that money. What about serious investors(such as China and those with Bitcoin) who may want to trade BTC and LTC for Dogecoin. There should also be feature to buy Dogecoin with USD instead of bitcoin. As it stands, Dogecoin has gone down. I think 200 BTC in volume has disappeared from the currency since yesterday. It seems more people are going back into BTC or Litecoin. People choosing BTC and LTC over Doge devalues the currency and lowers its value. This is why USD feature to buy and sell Dogecoin is important, so it isn't entirely pegged to LTC and BTC. Pegging Dogecoin to actual currency, such as USD, Euro, RMB would help to improve the value and worth of the currency, which could help to improve confidence as a serious investment. As it stands, Dogecoin seems like feathercoin except with a Dogeface, and I hate to say it. The reason is that there is much volume but it doesn't go up because people prefer other currencies over Dogecoin. People aren't confident in investing profits into the currency as much as they could be. So what is left is with an ever increasing volume and people are just trying to earn a profit by going into BTC rather than keep Dogecoin and trade in USD or Euros.
Dogecoin definately has a future, and it needs to have options to trade with fiat currencies as well as other cryptocurrencies. It needs to be accepted on respected exchanges such as BTC-e. Perhaps it would be a good idea for some of us Doge supporters to start up our own exchanges that trade Dogecoin in fiat and cryptocurrencies so it isn't one of many other cryptocurrencies pegged and at the mercy of BTC and LTC's many ups and downs. Confidence has to increase in the currency as well as trust, if it is to be seen as a serious investment. And it has to become more mainstream and more trusted as a currency than bitcoin, or at least as respected and trusted as LTC and BTC. It can't just be a joke and a memecoin.
I see a bright future with Dogecoin because of how much people like it, as a memecoin or not. It has a great logo, and already has captured the hearts and minds of people. So lets take it to the next level and make it into something really great, like maybe the google of cryptocurrencies. Reddit and 4chan made Bitcoin great and what it is today, and if that is the case, then we can replace bitcoin with Dogecoin and make it something even greater. I see the value of Dogecoin going up to at least 0.000003 BTC, or even 0.00002 or even 0.005. But for it to happen, it must stop being pegged entirely to BTC and have options to trade with other currencies and fiat as well.

Informative post about Feathercoin

Seeing how this Subreddit is lacking any sort of info on Feathercoins and the lack of community support we have, I have decided to start a post that would inform newbies about Feathercoin and seasoned vets on the best places to trade.
Feathercoin:
It is a Crypto Currency that was started by Peter Bushnell. It is a clone of Litecoin (This coin was inspired by Bitcoin). The Feathercoin network generates coins at a decreasing rate. It will generate about 336 million coins which is 16 times more than that of Bitcoin and 4 times more than that of Litecoin. Currently about 25 million coins have been generated.
Network hashrates, Pools, Solo mining:
Currently a mid end system comprising of 7870 or 7970 will get you abot 400 to 700 kh/s. That means that in a given day you will be mining about 7 to 13 Feathercoins on current difficulty level. However If you mine alone that is solo mining, the probability of you finding a block is hard and it may take a while before you make a coin. To counter this people have started making pools to increase the chances of finding blocks. There are many pools that allow you to have multiple workers so you can setup multiple systems and mine at your leisure. Currently some of the popular pools are:
http://www.fcpool.com/
http://give-me-coins.com/
http://www.wemineftc.com/
http://fc.ltcoin.net/
https://ftc.d2.cc/
For a full list of mining pools: http://coinpools.sdfg.org/ftc
It is highly recommended to join a pool to make mining profitable. Look at the pools posted above, look at their fee structure, their payout and make an informed decision on which pool to join.
Hardware and Mining:
Feathercoin utilizes scrypt based mining that is you can use your GPU (the Graphics card inside your system) to mine them. AMD Cards are highly recommended as they output higher hashrates as compared to Nvidia. To give you an idea of the difference a 7870 ghz edition mines at about 375 kh/s whereas a Nvidia 780ti would mine at about 224 to 300 kh/s. If you are seriously considering in investing in this venture it would be best to buy a rig that supports 6 GPU's and buy either the 7950 or the 280x as they have considerably higher hash rates and are affordable to say the least. Something one should be aware of is that mining produces a lot of heat as your system is basically running at full capacity and therefore needs a lot of cooling. People usually build rigs in the open (no case) and use household fans to cool them. Also another thing that is common is to use PCIe risers as they allow greater spacing between GPU cards and effectively help in dissipating heat. Mining uses a lot of electricity so it is best to use a schedule to mine or if electricity is cheap then 6 7950's running 24 hours a day would cost you about 12 to 18 dollars in electricity a month, maybe more depending on where you live. The software to use for mining are Cgminer (https://litecointalk.org/index.php?topic=6925.0), guiminer scrypt (http://forum.feathercoin.com/index.php?topic=961.0) and cudaminer for Nvidia cards. I would advise against Cpu mining as that is not profitable and will simply weigh you down. Invest 250 to 350 dollars in a good AMD GPU and you will be mining much more effectively.
Trading:
There are many places where one can trade Feathercoins but only a few of them offer FTC/USD exchange. Btc-e (https://btc-e.com/exchange/ftc_btc). Is one of the biggest cryptocoin trading exchanges, it does not offer USD exchange for Feathercoins as of yet but allows you to exchange for Bitcoins. Crypto-trade (https://www.crypto-trade.com/trade/ftc_btc), this trading exchange allows you to trade against the USD making it more favourable to miners however there is currently a lack of volume for FTC as of writing. Other exchanges like Cryptsy, Bter and coins-e are all good but they are heavily dependent on Bitcoins and Litecoins for now.
My thoughts
Feathercoin is fairly new and its gaining momentum, once big exchanges start listing it against the USD, the venture will become more profitable. For now it is advisable to mine as many as you can and sit on them till value improves or if you have a mining rig that is mining at 22000 kh/s (this will get you about 500 feathercoins a day) then mine the shit out of them and trade them for Btc for profit although I would recommend against this as it it reduces the value of feathercoin. Many exchanges allow you to deposit money via international wire transfers however the minimum is 2000 dollars so keep that in mind before investing real money into this venture. There are alternatives like paypal and okpay that are also accepted but not a lot of people have accounts on those so signup for a website that suits your situation.
One last ting we all need to do is spread awareness about Feathercoin, It is a miners coin and the difficulty right now makes it so much more interesting to mine. I will update this page with more information and will answer questions if any to the best of my knowledge. Happy mining

EDIT : I realized some of you might have NVIDIA GPU's and are hesitant on getting AMD. Never fear for there is a solution. If you have a motherboard that supports two or more GPU's that is you have more than one PCIe slots than follow these instructions:
If you intend to game on your system while you are mining then put the NVIDIA card in PCI slot one and buy an AMD card and put it in slot 2. Now install the drivers in the order Nvidia first reboot and then Amd second reboot. You do not need to plug in HDMI to your AMD card just leave it as it is. Now download gpu miner scrypt and select from the list your AMD card and start mining, its that easy. At night if you want to squeeze in more kh/s then run cudaminer and let it mine alongside your AMD. The best part about this is that you can be mining 24/7 on your AMD card and you will not experience any system slow down while gaming or watching movies. Remember to have atleast two workers workers created so you can mine parallel. If you already have an NVIDIA card then just install your AMD card and install AMD drivers and reboot and run guiminer scrypt. At times you might run into the issue of guiminer not starting, just delete it and re install it and it should work fine in 98% of the cases. This is for those who do not want to invest in a completely new system and would rather use their existing system. You can use cgminer as well but remember the order in cgminer starts from 0 not 1 so if NVIDIA is in slot 1 then it is -d0 -g0 and AMD will be -d1 -g1

1st BTC/Altcoin Mining Guide, Feedback Welcome!

When I decided to write this guide, I was throwing cryptocurrencies around like they were nothing. I was foolish in the fact that I disregarded the exchange fees that are attached with the services that those exchanges provided. I'm in by no means a cryptocurrency genius, and I'm still not extremely seasoned at it, but I've learned enough about cryptocurrencies in the past month that I feel confident to pass on the knowledge I have learned and to help those who are overwhelmed on where to start.
So what exactly is a cryptocurrency? According to technopedia (n.d.) a Cryptocurrency is a type of digital currency that is based on cryptography. Cryptocurrency uses cryptography for security, making it difficult to counterfeit. Public and private keys are often used to transfer the currency from one person to another.
When mining cryptocurrencies, one important concept needs to be established, and that's hash rate. Hash rate is simply a unit of measurement of processing power. The more your hash rate is, the more profitable mining becomes.
This guide uses specific sites and software, chosen by myself, as a great springboard into the cryptocurrency world. These sites and software are extremely flexible, easy to use, and integrate very well together. The mining pools I've chosen are multiple currency pools, designed to consolidate a major of the cryptocurrencies together, and instead of using several mining pools, you use three.
These are the things you'll need to get started: MultiMiner
Accounts at Coinotron, The Mining Pool Co., and BitMinter
Accounts at Cryptsy and Coinbase
There are a few different ways to mine for cryptocurrencies, the common of which are using your Central Processing Unit (CPU), Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), and Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) devices. CPU based mining is not profitable any longer, and will cost you money in the end by increasing electricity costs. GPU based mining is still popular, but losing steam against ASIC based mining. If you choose to use your GPU for mining, AMD/ATI based graphics cards (especially the Radeon HD 79xx series of cards), are the most efficient. If you have an nVidia based graphics card, I'm sorry. You can still mine on nVidia cards, but your hash rates are going to be much slower when compared to their AMD/ATI counterparts. If you chose to use GPU mining, Black Friday or Cyber Monday are you best bets for upgrading your equipment. ASIC based mining is quickly losing value with the changing difficulty on all networks, but it's the most cost effective way to increase your hash rate, and see a positive return on any equipment purchases. If my math is correct, using the methods in this guide, in order for any ASIC device to yield a positive cash flow, you've got to get a device that has at least a 5Gh/s rate (such as the Butterfly Labs Jalapeno).
Now for the fun part, explaining how everything in this well greased machine is going to work. Patience plays a big part in the cryptocurrency world, and when I first started, I had none. I was so eager to see the amount of Bitcoin go up, regardless of how much I was getting penalized in fees from trading. So, that's the first step on your journey. PATIENCE. I CANNOT emphasize this enough. Sometimes, you've just got to hurry up and wait, the effects of waiting things out on the cryptocurrency market WILL PAY OFF.
Step one of this machine is signing up for all three pools (BitMinter, Coinotron, and Mining Pool Co.). This is so that you can actually get server addresses to plug into MultiMiner, after signing up for these services though, you've still got a ways to go.
Step two is sign up for Cryptsy. I chose Cryptsy because of the features they're going to offer at a later time, as well as support for 60 cryptocurrencies (which covers all but one of which we can mine). When your Cryptsy account is setup, you will need to go into the Balances portion of Cryptsy, and find all of the currencies in which you will be mining from the pools. Once Balances are loaded up, you will need to click on the Actions button next to the currency, and click Deposit / Autosell, and then Generate Address. There's a small clipboard near the address it generated, and that will copy the address for pasting in the mining pool websites. You will want to copy, and paste all of them to a text document, along with which currency it belongs to. Not only does this keep you from juggling back and forth trying to figure out things, but it helps for reference and setting up MultiMiner.
Once you have those accounts setup, you'll want to sign up for Coinbase. A WORD OF WARNING FOR THOSE WHO ARE PARANOID... Coinbase will want to link to a bank account, this is mandatory if you want to trade your currencies for cash. If you want to trade currencies, just for the sake of trading, then you can skip Coinbase altogether. You can transfer your Bitcoins from Cryptsy straight into Coinbase, and then sell the Bitcoins from Coinbase, and straight into your designated bank account.
MultiMiner, oh how amazing you are. For every cryptocurrency available in all pools, you will need to add these coins, along with server addresses, log-ins and passwords. To do so, click on the drop down next to the Settings button, and click Coins. From there, click on Add Coin, and choose each coin from a pool. This will list it in the box to the left, and give you the ability to add information on the right. You can add multiple servers as well, in case the current server you're mining on goes down. After all your coins are setup, you'll need to setup your Strategies. Click the drop down next to Settings, and chose Strategies. Check the Enable Strategies check box, choosing Straight Profitability from the drop down, and checking the Strategy every five minutes (that way you're not losing money by mining something that has dropped in price). This aggressive price checking makes it to where you're always on top with whatever you're mining. Also make sure you have Mine the Single Most Profitable Coin selected. Stick with CoinChoose as your price source (under Settings), as CoinWarz charges for there services beyond a certain point. Click Start, and take a vacation.
Reading the charts on Cryptsy can be a little tricky, and scary if you've never saw those types of graphs before. Those graphs are called Candlestick Charts, and are used primarily in the stock market. I won't go in to great detail on this, however, you can find a nice cheat sheet on the subject here.
I hope everyone enjoyed the guide, sorry for being punctual and brief, but there isn't anything too elaborate of complicated about searching for cryptocurrencies. I love mining as a hobby, mining's fun, and if there is any money to be made off of mining from my end, great, if not, I had fun mining.
While compiling a spreadsheet of the minable currencies in this guide, if everything is set up correctly (and assuming servers aren't down), you should be able to mine the following:
And while Mining Pool Co. offers ASICcoin and Unobtainium, ASICcoin isn't supported in MultiMiner, and Unobtanium isn't supported in Cryptsy. I still mine for Unobtanium in hopes that Cryptsy will include it one day.

Uptrenda whitepaper: a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency exchange - feedback requested

So I've been working on a new design for trading cryptocurrencies that significantly reduces the impact of a compromise as well as the economic incentive for an attacker. My design is peer-to-peer and based on using smart contracts to allow complete strangers to trade altcoins without relying on a centralised exchange. It is a peer-to-peer approach, although (as of yet) it's not completely decentralised because it also includes aspects of traditional exchanges to help make matching trades faster and more reliable.
The main benefits of my system:
I've written a white paper that describes my design and I'll be releasing a basic prototype in the coming weeks, just got to put in some finishing touches. If anyone has some spare time to read my paper (warning: it's a little technical) - I'd deeply appreciate some feedback.
The paper is available here: https://pdf.yt/d/KzFdlJWF3UTTlf_i
Edit: Fixed formatting. Sorry.

Feathercoin, as one of the oldest Altcoins, has proven the test of time. It is also still being actively developed by its founder and a small but strong open-source community contributing to the project. FOCUSED ON USER EXPERIENCE. Feathercoin is an upgraded and customized version of Bitcoin initially forked from Litecoin’s source code. Like most alt coins, feathercoin is simply a currency with a different set of parameters than bitcoin. In this particular case, they use scrypt for block generation (which is more ASIC resistant) and the block reward is higher at 200 coins per block. I also believe feathercoin follows litecoin's reward target of one block per 2.5 minutes. Altcurrency exchange Crypto Street converts bitcoin, litecoin and feathercoin Crypto St. is a new US digital currency exchange that recently launched into its beta testing phase. Feathercoin is shortened as FTC. Therefore, it is one of the secure and unique cryptocurrency that uses the proof of work system to facilitate transactions. Peter Bushnell launched in the year 2013 making it one of the traditional digital currencies. The infomation on this website is not fiancial advise. This website is for entertainment purposes only.
