    Bitcoin Darkwallet being implemented. Thoughts?

    Could obviously be very disruptive, depending on how things work out. There are so many uncertainties that it's hard to make an informed judgment now though. Iif people can keep a transaction entirely in BTC it will probably remain the preferred option. However it may also turn out that...

    DarkSend BETA V6

    Congratulations on the great/steady progress!

    Stop killing darkcoin (and drktalk) please.

    This would have been a terrible idea that would have almost certainly have destroyed Darkcoin. People want something that is concrete and unchanging. As it is right now, you could by chance miss one day on a forum and come back the next to find out that the rules of the game have completely...

    sgminer 4.0 vs. 4.1?

    Thanks. I for some reason feel comfortable with 4.0 and was not really looking to rock the boat unless there was a clear reason to do so. Sounds like there isn't.

    What other altcoins are DRKcoiners into?

    True, hadn't thought of that. Well ambitious ideas are good. If nothing else there will certainly be lessons to learn for cryptocurrency as a whole.

    And now..?

    Very true, it's going to be interesting to see how things play out.

    And now..?

    In some ways Darksend might perversely benefit from this as it would make it that much harder for government snooping to follow transactions within China. It obviously would be preferable to have government support for crypto but if this is how it's going to be, it might put Darkcoin in a good...

    And now..?

    Agreed although their current movements are not encouraging. I can easily see why an autocratic, centralized government might fear something like cryptocurrency that would allow citizens to easily transfer money out of the country or hide it away.

    What's your theory?

    Evan has stated on the bitcoin forum that he would not try to prevent this if someone went to the trouble of doing this but that it is likely very far off given how big x11 would have to get before anyone would bother trying.

    sgminer 4.0 vs. 4.1?

    Hey, has anyone compared hashing rates between these two versions? I've seen varying accounts for other coins where people found that things were a bit slower with 4.1.

    What other altcoins are DRKcoiners into?

    Hmmm intriguing, will have to check it out when I have a free moment. I could see it being both very powerful if done well but also easily exploited depending on how much latitude a programmer would have when adding code. I'm interested to see how they will keep transaction sizes on the...

    Man I hope I haven't been getting screwed these last couple of years! Will definitely do more comparison shopping in the future.

    0% mining fees at drkpool.com

    Thanks this is a good idea as the coinmine majority has always made DRK a bit risky

    Question on Newest Beta Wallet

    Probably not unreasonable in the beta period while stuff is being sorted out... the last thing DRK needs in terms of publicity is someone losing thousands of coins in a Darksend transfer from a bug! Also the protocol needs a certain number of users to all do transfers of the same general size to...

    What other altcoins are DRKcoiners into?

    Primarily that they plan to implement the older Zerocoin anonymity protocol I think.

    Mining power requirements?

    Wow that's an amazing savings, even more than I had expected from the accounts online. Definitely puts X11 in a good light. Thanks for the real world numbers!

    Mining power requirements?

    Hey folks, has anybody actually tested power consumption of X11 versus Scrypt etc. on the same rig? I'm interested in doing some back of the envelope calculations but don't have one of those fancy watt-counting plugs that some miners have. Ideally I'd be interested in the power draw on different...

    Bitcoin to be taxed as property, not currency by IRS

    So for any crypto users in the US, today the IRS announced their approach to taxation of Bitcoin, which will presumably set the precedent for any other cryptocurrency, including Darkcoin: http://blogs.wsj.com/totalreturn/2014/03/25/qa-the-new-irs-rules-on-bitcoin/ Original document...

    Darkcoin to da moon!

    Hah I totally understand the mixed feelings. In the long run of course this is a positive thing as it reflects greater interest in the DRK currency, community, etc. which will help DRK reach the next level of development. Still it's hard to see a great opportunity coming to a close.

    Darkcoin to da moon!

    Don't get me wrong, I definitely agree that darkcoin is one of the few (if any) altcoins that have a chance of truly being disruptive in the crypto world. But when the volume quintuples and the hashrate adds 3 GH/s over the course of 24 h I get a bit taken aback! I hope that this is some kind of...

    Darkcoin to da moon!

    Volume is way way up too. I wonder if this is a pump and dump type situation. I haven't seen any market-moving type information in the last 24h. Any body else?

    Moolah

    Btw, they're fairly prominently involved with the doge community (e.g. acting as safekeeper for funds for their current fundraiser) so I think they're pretty legit. Their aim is more to facilitate the use of crypto on the web as a medium of commerce and hence they thankfully seem to be pursuing...

    Yeah should make it way more accessible both from an investment perspective and to the average user.

    Thoughts on Anoncoin?

    Ok that clarifies things a bit. My understanding is that they are aiming to introduce the zerocoin/zerocash protocol at some point correct? Does this theoretically address that issue (notwithstanding the issues of using an untested blackbox cryptography technique)?

    Thoughts on Anoncoin?

    The way I see it, Darkcoin's core strength is the anonymity it will offer. Its ASIC-resistance, relative friendliness to CPU miners (i.e. new users), and stability are also appealing, but may not be as attention-grabbing. Anonymity could make DRK truly disruptive. There are a variety of other...

    Moolah?

    They chose DRK along with several other alts (Dogecoin, Litecoin, Mintcoin and Vertcoin) but that's fairly good company to be keeping :)

    100 DRK active member lottery! - Winner drawn, congratulations DieCommieScum!

    Thanks for doing this. We really need to find some kind of incentive to encourage people off the bitcointalk thread as it's a total disaster to read through. Hope that this encourages migration!

    What other altcoins are DRKcoiners into?

    Yeah I think it's way too early to say that any cryptocurrency is the standard. That would be like saying Webcrawler won internet search in the 90s. Plus I remain unconvinced that a single currency is necessarily the right fit for every user anyway. I think there is still great opportunity for...
