Hello Tungfa :)

I don't know anything about that site but as I'm trying to research everything about Darkcoin from all sources, I'm just looking at what they're saying and trying to come to an informed opinion. All the points they've listed does sound reasonable, and I'm just hoping people here who are directly connected to the founders of Darkcoin can confirm/deny what that post says.

Is this technology really anonymous and could they demonstrate that? Perhaps a youtube video demonstrating sending/buying a coin? I'm sure after that everyone will rush into this.

Take care

you could have a look here
https://darkcointalk.org/forums/darkcoin-news.16/
this should give you a good overview

Edit: the page you quoted writes any story for 1 BTC, go figure how honest that piece of 'journalism' will be ... paid FUD and nothing else.

New members normaly do NOT rush in here with a FUD Aticle under their arm !
I will keep an eye out for you
:)

The Crow just get into testnet with recent version and anonymise, lets say 100 coins and after that try to find the oryginal tx after denominating coins :)
Do the good research before you`ll invest hard in it.
Cheers and welcome.

Hi Dudes,

I'm seriously considering investing a lot of money into buying Darkcoins and presently am conducting a lot of due diligence. Out of all the alternate currencies out there, this one seems the most promising after Bitcoin because of privacy. When block chain technologies become available, everyone will go to them because they will offer genuine security/privacy. This of course will need discreet currency and so I'm certain all the sites will accept darkcoin coins and this will help shoot up the value.

I did come across an article however from cryptobang, and I'm hoping someone from here can answer it before I start buying darkcoins. Unfortunately I've just registered so I'm unable to provide the link here.

Many thanks!
You don't get all the devoted followers that Darkcoin has by having an inferior product!

There are plenty of crypto alternatives that we could be involved in, but we choose Darkcoin.

Why?

Darkcoin has overcome it's rocky beginnings to become a technological powerhouse. The development team, which used to comprise of just Evan Duffield, has grown into a team of six developers that contribute regularly.

Seriously, while anonymity is important, it is now but one aspect of what we are about. InstantX will make us the only crypto with instant transactions.
With Bitcoin, you can have 1 fully confirmed transaction per hour. With Darkcoin, assuming a conservative 20 second confirmation time, you can do 180 Darkcoin transactions in the same time span.

And those are completely private transactions.

Don't even get me started about the possibilities of Masternodes...

Can I welcome you to the Dark, yet?

Tao

Hey new here,

I've been pretty dismissive of cryptocurrencies simply because I believed they were too transparent. I feel like Bitcoin is actually the tax-man's wet dream, but darkcoin is a very different story. So I recently bought 10 DRK just to get an idea of how it works.

I'm from Alberta, Canada. I'm self taught when it comes to economics, and I believe the petrodollar system is just one big unintentional ponzi scheme.

Hey guys, just a short heads up about me, I'm in Crypto since 2011, mostly active on bitcointalk.org and i'm running Suprnova Pools since a bit longer than a year, Darkcoin raised my interest since the instant tx features and masternodes, so i'm quite new here, but enjoying it already. I've also setup a pool for Darkcoin (dark.suprnova.cc) and hope everyone enjoys it. Its great to see such a strong community and I hope I can be part of it :)

Thanks !

Hello. Great to be here. I've been in the crypto scene since 4/13. I have no special skills in programming. I'm a trader into new things. Privacy well to me there is no privacy any more so this coin is interesting. I live in the us, a father of 2. Just a normal dude with a bit of a crazy streak. Nice to meet you all.

Howdy. Im a darkcoin investor and a masternode operator here. I consider myself to still be learning when it comes to the cryptocurrency scene. Having observed all the other alt coins on the market, darkcoin to me offers the best of all worlds. A POS system that actually enhances the network, combined with a good POW side, and soon to have instantaneous transactions. No one else seems to offer the quality that darkcoin does. Glad to be a part of the dark scene.

Hi all, I'm humbled to be a part of the Darkcoin Forum. I am definitely a "newbee" as far as the software is concerned and some things are very difficult to understand. but I am a electrical engineer and i am catching on fast as a miner. I got my first 'rig' to work in Jan 1st, and I been hooked on this stuff ever since (2 more added now but just CPU), wife does not like it at all though, so it's hard to make the time to keep working on it, I actually sneek out at 1am, and work on all this stuff til 2:30am - 3am every night, then go to work at 5am, I've got plans to fill up my entire basement with rigs, i have a huge basement....DRK is the best though, huge learning curve for me, but I'm getting there I wish it was easy, but if it was easy, everyone would be doing it!...hope all is well, warm wishes to everyone.....
