    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 started up the BTC2 client for the first time about 15 minutes ago ( i've included the current seednode in my .conf), but I haven't had any active connections.  I am stuck out of sync.

    don't get me wrong, i think using scrypt might be a good idea, but THIS is ridiculous and confusing and i feel like it's either a failure, or a scam. why aren't you working with the bitcoin dev team? it's not like they're just leaving it as is.... if you want to improve bitcoin, then help improve bitcoin. don't create another clone that's so much of a clone that it even has the same name... that's quite confusing to someone who has trouble understanding english, as well as people who are new to the crypto game. this reeks of something fishy.

    That is probably not a constructive statement. Have you
    downloaded the client app? Are you mining? Do you
    have a knowledge-base of information, not just on this
    site ... but others too about BITCOIN SCRYPT?

    Some people confuse BITCOIN SHA-256 with
    BITCOIN SCRYPT. But the development team I
    personally think ... in my humble opinion, has the
    issue at hand.

    It's helpful to some extent to see more of these
    messages pop up. It only helps to reinforce the
    next roll-out, before it happens. To some people
    this might be a threat ... to some, it's a cool
    thing. So, of course, if you support BITCOIN SHA-256,
    there is a forum for that. If you have questions
    or concerns about BITCOIN SCRYPT, please
    articulate those out. What scam? Did you get
    scammed? Or are you just thinking about it?

    What other issues do you have with the coin?
    Did you mine any or thinking about it?

    Stuff like this ... resolving those questions
    faithfully or just putting your
    opinion out there helps. If anyone else
    wants to ding in on this, please go for it.


    Good luck & may the coins be ever in your
    future.

    I would highly recommend before anyone dives into
    any coin, to spend at least 3 days studying all
    the messages. Come on people, it does not take that
    much effort.

    At any rate, I believe ... unless I am mistaken,
    you need to download the blockchain update to
    kick start things. You'll notice the updates in
    this thread talk about the problem & I'm sure
    you'll get it going.

    i'm simply stating that making such a confusing altcoin release raises some suspicions. there are many flaws in the bitcoin design, which many will agree.... but to put out something with a pretty much identical name, seems well, dishonest. either that or poorly planned. frankly, i believe that if bitcoin DOESN'T change it's hashing algorithm, it WILL fail. this realm of thinking is what birthed many altcoins. it's a good thing, because it causes the bitcoin community to strengthen the preexisting system to improve or stand aside. this is what the free market needs. we are on the verge of freedom from banker oppression. however, doing this independently from the original dev team and branding it with THE SAME NAME seems counterproductive and/or manipulative. why not pick a name that isn't riding bitcoin's coattails?

    i'm wary of everything crypto. there are a ton of scams. hell, bitcoin itself could be an elaborate pyramid scheme. blocks were premined and satoshi took some for himself. if he had a large portion of the market share, he could get one over on EVERYONE. ;)

    so can you please tell me why the wallet path by default goes into the REAL bitcoin wallet? and also how this isn't a problem or anything? this really isn't adding any merit to your case. i understand that it's an easy fix... which makes me wonder why YOU didn't fix this out of the gate. you know, like EVERY other altcoin....

    and now deep scanning for malware.

    To be clear, both Bitcoin SHA256 and Bitcoin sCrypt were developed under the MIT/X11 License (Open Source Initiative) which provides:

    Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining a copy
    of this software and associated documentation files (the "Software"), to deal
    in the Software without restriction, including without limitation the rights
    to use, copy, modify, merge, publish, distribute, sublicense, and/or sell
    copies of the Software, and to permit persons to whom the Software is
    furnished to do so, subject to the following conditions:

      

    The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in
    all copies or substantial portions of the Software.

     

    See http://opensource.org/licenses/MIT

     

    As such, not only are other alt-coins free to use the Bitcoin SHA256 source-code, Bitcoin SHA256 is prohibited from restricting or limiting any alt-coin from calling themselves Bitcoin and thus violating the MIT/X11 license itself. Indeed, to claim that there can be only "one" Bitcoin would be a direct violation of the MIT/X11 Open Source License.  

     

    That is why the coin retains nearly the same name. That is why the wallet path goes to the same location. That is why your head just exploded. 

     

    As Bitcoin SHA256 mining continues to utilize smaller and smaller ASIC die sizes, only entities with sufficient capital will be able to develop the necessary mining equipment, resulting in increased centralization of the network. As that happens, some people suspect that Bitcoin SHA256 will leave its anarchist roots and become subservient to government regulators. We're already seeing talk of that now (e.g., failure to adopt Zerocoin; proposal to mark "clean" coins; adoption of BIP 70; etc...).

     

    And I suspect that is why Satoshi utilized the MIT/X11 license in the first place.  See http://www.bitcointrading.com/forum/bitcoin-clients/original-bitcoin-source-code-archives/

     

    Unless and until Bitcoin SHA256 actively works on changing their hashing algorithm to move away from centralization, Bitcoin sCrypt will actively force the issue.

     

    So while you talk about changing Bitcoin SHA256's hashing algorithm, we will be the change.

    i never said he wasn't ALLOWED to half-ass clone bitcoin. i'm just saying that all this poor planning or deceptive practice (it's one of those 2) is RIDICULOUS.

     

    look, i'm all for the destruction of mining farms. the corporate world getting big time crypto on lock is a very real concern. however, if this were an actual serious attempt at improving crypto, it wouldn't be so half-assed. i'm checking to make sure this doesn't have RobinHood or some other wallet jacker/keylogger combo. i'll be sure to update everyone in this laughable thread. LOL

     

    you can "be the change" all you want, but if the "change" is a tiny ripple, when what you really need is a wave, then your "change" is useless.

    This laughable thread breathlessly awaits your results, as we were too ridiculous to check the source code ourselves. XOXO

    we can quote other people all day. it's not going to actually sell anybody on this. i'm just trying to get a rational and direct explanation as to how somebody would think this would succeed UNLESS they were trying to deceive (or are some 12 yr old script kiddie). this is a litecoin clone in bitcoin's clothing.

    if this is such a change, what exchanges are taking it?

    There is no real question in there. It's a heated argument. What are you asking?
