    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.

    Hi all,

     

    Sorry I have been away for a bit, got so much going on family wise and with the Extremecoin reward drop days away.

     

    Right then on with Bitcoin Scrypt.

     

    No exchange is going to take on this coin unless is has a name change and this causes massive problems. If you don't know what I mean, check out the Crimecoin to Communitycoin name change and you will see what I mean, if you can't be bothered to check I will tell you, it died.

     

    The problem is, is that if you change the coins name, then the appdata folder changes name aswell but all the previously mined blocks will still look for the old named folder.

     

    Basically it means a massive hard fork and that no new users will be able to download the blockchain from stratch and would have to download a chain.This is another problem, so exchange will take a coin that cannot download it own blockchain.

     

    At the moment I am stuck with what to do with this coin right now. It has support which is nice to see but right now it is probably 10% love it, 20% like that idea of it and 70% hate it and want it to die a painful death.If anyone knows of a way to change the name of the coin and not mess the chain etc up, then I am all ears.

     

    I am editing this as I have just checked out the Bitcoin Scrypt pool and I cannot believe so many people are mining it and with loads of hashing power too.

     

    I am guessing that the support for this coin is a lot larger than what I thought but just that a lot of those miners keep themselves on the down and low.

     

    Is it still banned to talk about this coin on Cryptsy chat?

    Hi CaptChadd ;)

     

    I suggest you to create a new coin for example B2C is would sound nice.I suppose that you are a developer, well take some time and create a new one, with the same settings.Than you premine the exact quantity of coins that people have mined till the killing of the BTC Scrypt crep. ;)

     

    You use all the premined new coins to change the OLD coins with ration of 1:1 coin, this can be done on your official site. 

    If I head your knowledge about coin developing well I'll do that ;)Simpler, maybe complex but you need to look olso at indirect marketing bonus thanks to lots of critics :)It's not important if people are talking good or bad, it's important that thay keep talking about LOL :)Maybe you lost a battle, but you are still running to win a war ;)Hope all that help you a bit ;).

    The goal of Bitcoin Scrypt is NOT to be some pump and dump altcoin.

     

    People who write about Bitcoin Scrypt wanting a name change don't have any idea why the coin was created... to replace BTC SHA.  The coin wasn't created to be another altcoin so miners could mine 1000 coins and sell them on cryptsy.  There are already 130 coins that can be mined and traded.

    I think that people who do not like the name, who choose other currency and fixed the problem, and people who believe in the name as we continue forward to the end.

    Welcome back Capt!

     

    If the goal of BTC Scrypt is to replace or force a decentralization-change upon BTC Sha, then a name change will probably defeat this purpose.

     

    Since the current BTC Scrypt user base does not desire to exchange the coins at this point anyway, getting on an exchange is probably not a big deal at the moment.

     

    Alternatively, some creative chap could create an exchange that only exchanges BTC Scrypt to BTC Sha using the same addresses.  Since a block-chain explorer exists for both BTC Sha and BTC Scrypt one could easily differentiate transactions between the two coins.

     

    As users continue to push-back against the ASIC centralization of BTC Scrypt, organic interest in BTC Scrypt will continue to grow.

     

    Indeed, once the initial block-chain download problem is fixed then the release of bitcoinq v.90 with BIP 70 for BTC sha may prove the perfect time for a coordinated publicity push of BTC scrypt.

    Hi everyone,

     

    Yeah had some family stuff to deal with but back now.

     

    I will be reorganizing the Bitcoin Scrypt section on here just to make it a little bit more easier to find information, we have a quiet a few random threads at the moment.

     

    The Google Doc's trading thread is going to be removed.I am going to talk with a few guys that I know to see if it could be viable to have an exchange website that is straight up Bitcoin Scrypt to for example US Dollars and Pounds Sterling using various payment processors. I am already a business level user for PayPal and also on a high level with another website that deals with Virtual gaming currencies.I am going to seek some help on the blockchain download situation, as I fixed the code the same as I did with Extremecoin but for some reason it will not work. I will get it fixed though.

     

    Thanks.

    The best advice I can give is use Bitcoin SHA as an example.  What are the services that are most used for Bitcoin SHA?  Make a list of the services that need to be created and work on those services.  Maybe create a thread asking for people to look at BTC SHA and help create a list of the most needed services for BTC Scrypt.

    • Obviously a BTC to USD / GBP website.  A site where people can trade fiat for BTC Scrypt.
    • A site like Bitpay.
    • Satoshi Dice Game.

    Use the existing 'most popular services' list from BTC SHA to start creating the BTC Scrypt Services.
     
    I also think the name clarification issue needs to be addressed.  I created those logos as a joke when the coin launched - they obviously say BTC2.  People are starting to use the name BTC2, BTCS, etc.  An official name should be chosen and used throughout.  Graphics, names, etc.  I should probably remove the "2" from the round logo.

    Yes! It will enhance or help public perception BTC Scrypt is definately worthy to buy. The idea of some BTC Buy Now trading site like that is cool. I am sure there are people who will purchase 250 coins, 500, etc. at some non-selfish amount in coming months.

    Hello guys new on the exchange BTC2?

     

    No Bitcoin Scrypt isn't currently on any exchange.

    Because I knew that. But there will be in the future?

     

    Who knows.  It's up to an exchange to list Bitcoin Scrypt.  Currently, I don't think any exchange will list Bitcoin Scrypt because of the pre-compiled blockchain.  Until that is hashed out, I don't think it will get listed anywhere.  I know of one service that wanted to integrate Bitcoin Scrypt but they won't do it with the blockchain in its current state.

     

    Hopefully the developer will take care of the situation.  Now would be the time.  IMHO the Chinese market it looking for new coins to invest in.

    The new SeedNode for Bitcoin Scrypt is live please add addnode=31.193.130.77 to your client config file.

     

    This week the other two VPS seed nodes will be going offline and this new more powerful cloud server will take over.
