    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.

    Why is my BTC2 wallet staying out of sync?

    Go into Roaming folder but typing %appdata% and open bitcoin folder. Open the bitcoin.conf in notepad, and change it to this.

     

    rpcuser=username

    rpcpassword=password

    rpallowip=localhost

    rpcport=30201

    addnode=212.48.67.126

    addnode=217.8.255.62

    addnode=31.193.130.77

    server=1

    gen=0

     

    This config worked for me, hope it works for you.

    I've been working on the fix to the blockchain issue and am trying to coordinate with CaptChadd on the release.

     

    Once the blockchain fix is distributed in the next client then exchanges would be more apt to include it.

    It's going to be really hard to get BTC2 on an exchange.  Having the code the same as the SHA Bitcoin will be an issue.  I've stated a couple of places that maybe a Chinese exchange would list BTC2 because those exchanges generally trade against CNY.  All the other main alternative exchanges trade against BTC.

    All this coin needs for now is 2 things...

     

    1) fix the data folder

    - for windows it can simply be done with winrar sfx or something like that where it will extract all QT files to program files or whatever and create a shortcut on desktop with "-datadir=c:\btc2"

     

    2) fix the syncing problems

    - make it sync normaly

     

    and it will fly to havens!

    I agree and fixing those two issues can be done in the version update that I am working on releasing.

     

    However, I'm trying to tread between keeping Omega6's initial vision intact and evolving the coin to make it more market friendly...as a purist coin that dies is useless.

     

    Omega6's last communication to me was that he wanted the coin to go in the direction that its users want it to go.  On that note, I've been looking at coming up with a "proof of stake voting system" that could guide the coin's evolutionary development.

     

    More details to follow...

     

    Laters,

    :);) thats good!

     

    If i only have some free time or at least some money to buy time!

     

    i would love to make this coin go to top, even above btc

    Will we be looking at a different Algo? Scrypt Miner are due to ship in 2-4 months time frame. So what are our plan for the future of this coin. I am for whatever it takes to keep this coin from being centralized mined.

    为了保证网站品质,比特时代山寨币资料库有3不收录原则,敬请见谅:

    In order to ensure the quality of the site, bit era cottage currency is not included in the database has three principles, please forgive me:

    1、不收录发布不足10日的山寨币,新币风险较高,死亡概率大,不宜推荐。

    1, collection released not less than 10 days cottage currency, the new currency higher risk of death probability of large, not recommended.

    2、不收录sha256难度低于10000,scrypt难度低于2的山寨币,难度较低的山寨币意味着用户数量较少,运营品质欠佳,不推荐大家参与。

    Sha256 difficulty not included below 10000, scrypt cottage difficulty than 2 altcoins, currency implies a lower degree of difficulty of the cottage small number of users, the poor quality of operations is not recommended for everyone to participate.

    3、不收录有预挖矿行为或初期区块奖励过高的山寨币,这类山寨币缺乏基本操守,用户不宜介入。

    3, not included with pre-mining behavior or reward excessive initial block cottage coins, coins lack of basic ethics of such cottage, the user should not intervene.

    what a hell is that???

     

    I believe it is btc38.com's standards/warnings regarding the listing of alt-coins.  Could be interesting if the poster 'greentea' is affiliated with btc38.com.

    edit:  I see a 'greentea' as a miner on the cryptominer pool and don't think he/she's affiliated.

    Hey all.

     

    So glad to hear that the sync issue is on the way to be fixed. It's not a good start for a regular computer user to find that downloading and buying into the idea of BitCoin V2 - The second gen coin that has a relentless policy of NO ASICS!!

     

    An active development roadmap policy to constantly move the target away from mega-miners. Does not work straight out of the box.  But as BitCoin V2 fans we must also think about mega-miners with super GPU setups.

     

    Are they an asset? Or part of the problem ? In my view 3Mh Scrypt  Algo with a GPU setup is a pretty serous commitment that enters the realm of Pro Miner. Should Block reward be lower for big Hash Miners? What is fair 'regular Jack & Jill' mining.

    Let me just say that, from the lessons of BitCoin 1. We may learn much to take BitCoinV2 to the true second gen status.

     

    The idea of BTC being a currency is not working out in the short term, it could well turn into a 'heaven currency for any future financial crisis. For now, It has turned into a commodity. Same as gold, oil, wheat or any other.  

    The dynamic is an offset for the digital context, Where people who have computer knowledge / skills become inside traders / players.

     

    Let's not forget and understand how things really are, BitCoin got its real start when Cyprus Banks were going bust, bank depositors wanted there money back, but government restrictions forbid international transfers. So the upshot was semi-exotic Bitcoin niche activity at the time, became the platform of choice to transport 'value' through wires.

     

    So its a store of value, that is easily transferred. That why China Saver looked to buy it. FOR BTC V2, We need to UNDERSTAND THIS, AND ENBLE IT!

     

    This rocketing in price started the phenomena we seen since. The insane speculative force of GREED / MISSED THE BOAT has consumed the crypto currency scene. Over and Over new coins, Ever rising ASIC's speeds to capture every last cent of BITCOIN profit, and soon SCRYPT ASIC's. Will HI JACK the possibilities.

     

    This SCRPYT ASIC thing is an opportunity for BITCOIN V2 to show its commitment to NO ASICS and shine as a coin that will fight large speculative players, but hold on, most of the players are speculative players anyhow? To a lesser or greater extent. So we seem to stand for a message ' Hyper GREED' that kills the concept, is what we are really against.

      

    This means that for now. At this point, BITCOIN V2 can learn from the past and improve it for the future.

     

    My view-  What's Important is USEFULNESS  & ENGAGMENT

     

    My 10c to future wallets version,

     

    1. Why can't I have a visual representation of the network, See the hashing when I am mining, See transactions pass through my client?

    WHY BOTHER ADD THIS FEATURE DUDE ?? - It's important to buy into not just the concept, but how it works with a twist of entertainment / engagement. That way, cool factor is a driver to leaving it on.

     

    2. The WALLET is a P2P Client, It's a PRIVATE PLATFORM for world citizens to opt-in, it should have utility beyond sending units of value.

     

    So,

     

    Have a inbuilt  alterative to email / message / photo sharing and related uses that is End to End Super-Secure using the take-up argument; 'the more ppl that leave it on, the better the service becomes' to help drive up usage and utility!!

     

    Add a Screensaver feature that mines to the BitCoin V2 central pool and pays back the share to user automatically. One click Button, no around the houses to put off the 'regular Jack and Jill user'.

     

    Other vital areas for BitCoin 2 is branding. But I shall leave it for now.

     

    Feel free to contact me on [email protected]

     

    Thanks for you time.

    I am not affiliated with btc38.com. just reading about btc.38 standards/warnings and translation.

     

    Chinese market is good place, but there are many persons do short-term, especially by Chinese aunty.
     
    I have been here for several days of mining, Synchronization wallet is a big problem to me in the early, I think the designers have been working to improve.
     
    I tried for several days finally resolved. But how many people because of the wallet out of sync problem, I think a lot of people into the mining area a few minutes
     
    and then give up. Then forget this mine and Bitcoin scrypt. many people do not understand computers and how to path file to improve wallet sync.
     
    may be able can use the graphic way to give more people can be improved wallet sync. in new version not yet issue period.
     
    refer to SCRYPT BTC POOL BTC2 pond closed since version of the client can not synchronize.
