    BITCOIN SCRYPT - BTCS
     
    Bitcoin sCrypt is the decentralized alternative to Bitcoin-core and is the first cryptographic currency to utilize CryptoVoter's decentralized blockchain voting to decide development issues and shift power away from developers and mining pools to coinholders themselves.

    I just fired it up and mined a few blocks and everything seems to be running smooth.  I'm not using the pool but the new version seems to be running fine.

    I highly doubt any of the mainstream exchanges are looking to add Bitcoin Scrypt.  Maybe some of the minor ones who are looking to get publicity might be thinking about adding it.  

     

    Think about it... how much of an exchange support department pain in the butt would it be when people send Bitcoin Scrypt BCT to Bitcoin SHA addresses (or vice versa) then not getting credited for their coins and complaining... "I just sent X amount of Bitcoins to my address and they didn't show up?"  Support response:  "You sent Bitcoin SHA coins to your Bitcoin Scrypt address and there is nothing we can do.  Sorry you lost your 100 BTC SHA".  

     

    It would be a support nightmare for the exchange that decides to list Bitcoin Scrypt.  Then add the people who exchange some cryptocoins for Bitcoin Scrypt, thinking it's Bitcoin SHA, and then crying that they were scammed.  Any exchange bold enough to want to trade Bitcoin Scrypt is truly taking on a challenge from a support standpoint.  

     

    The above is the prime reason why I said that Bitcoin Scrypt should be traded against the USD.  Same way Bitcoin SHA started out.

    I think people have to learn to understand and differentiate that there are two kinds of bitcoin one produced by ASIC (Bitcoin SHA-256) and another produced by GPU (Bitcoin Scrypt) with rereferente the exchange rate against the dollar should start and once starting differential SHA bitcoin exchange.

    I'm relatively new to the whole cryptocoin world. Even being a noob I can see how confusing this is going to be for people. Just change the name. ScryptBit or something.

    You cannot just change the name for a coin that has a blockchain already running. It means that new users would have to download the old name client blockchain and move it into the newly named client appdata directory just to use it. Now that is a nightmare.

     

    Bitcoin SHA-256 and Bitcoin Scrypt can be used on the same machine with no problems to wallets or blockchains at all.

    The addnode=217.8.255.62 is back again. So now there are two seed nodes for this coin, see the OP for both of them.

    What a high difficulty!  I just checked the client and there was 398 Mh/s on the last block.  That's what sent the difficulty so high.  The last block was found several hours ago.
