Ty vm tungfa. That was very generous of you. As you can see in my previous post I am starting to learn that it will take a while to mine some DRK let alone 1000 for a mn. Does anyone know of any faucets that are actually working? I will hit those up each day in addition to mining.

little welcome gift

do not hit the faucets every day please as they are for 'total' newcomers to cryptos, you already know how it works and what you are doing !
keep the rigs on fire and they will pay eventually !

Hello guys, im new here. Iv been a crypto-lurker for a good whilst now on and off so I kinda understand some things. I have however, never mined coins so now that I got a good computer im going to give it a try! :) I dont plan on getting rich or whatever.... I just want to learn about some interesting technologies and maybe meet some friends along the way. I have posted a question in the mining sub so please take a look at that if possible. My wallet address is XwKtg3wPihGm6UQHj4sTeQcF446ip2sDTx if anyone is feeling generous (make me RICH!) jks haha :) Thanks guys, may this be an interesting experience.

Hi all. First day here. First thing, this forums UI is the best. Its clean, professional and quick and posts are mature.
I started with Dogecoin, then onto Bitcoin, Litecoin and Peercoin and have seen so much tweeted daily about DRK that I'm actually a bit hooked now and watching the markets hourly to whats happening. This is almost like starting over in crypto. I'm having new wallet dramas but I'm sure it will work out so I'm using EOBOT wallet for now until it gets sorted. I using my laptop with Windows 8.1 32. If anyone has advice that any dummy should now when running 8.1 with DRK so I don't have to go through the pain, it would be greatly appreciated.:)

Welcome :D, you should not have trouble with windows 8, I run a cold masternode wallet from it, make sure the usual firewalls are off or enabled on port 9999 and set port forwarding on your router if your going down the masternode path as router firewalls can block the remote procedure calls to masternodes. in your wallet, goto tools, debug console, and in the command window type masternode list, this will show every active masternode's ip and port.

Hey I'm new and thought I'd mention what a cool and user friendly website this is. Well done.
I am a huge fan of cryptocurrency, Darkcoin, Bitcoin, and just the alts as they emerge. I try to provide educational material on my website bitcoin macroeconomics . c
I have a lot of content on there, free crypto section, charities wall (some animal rescues, etc), even a METAL SHOP.
My first post was about Indexcoin and would like to hold the discussion on that.
Besides that just into economics, sound money, technology, politics, nature, rights, law reform......

Hi friends, I've been lurking for a few months and am finally coming out of the shadows into the dark. I've been working in tech and IT for a couple decades, and have been mining and investing in crypto for most of a year. I have always seen Darkcoin as the only viable alt. Happy to be here and anxious to become a part of the community.

Hi All,

I'm introducing myself. I'm a crypto currency newbie. I soon plan to purchase some Darkcoin. I'm now playing around with bitcoin, wallets, online exchanges, altcoin - USD transactions, etc to learn how all this crypto currency stuff works. Looks like a cool technology that has some potential to grow.

Thanks, Cheers,

Advait in India

Hello, to all new Darkcoiners!

We're glad you joined the Darkcoin community.

Just the fact that you're here reading this represents the interest that is out there for a privacy-centric alternative to Bitcoin and other digital currencies. On behalf of all Darkcoiners, I welcome you to the community, and look forward to your contributions to the development of this innovative coin.

Please take the time to browse around the forum, and use this thread to introduce yourself, and ask any questions you may have about Darkcoin! If you have any special skills (particularly QT or C++), let us know! If you would like to tag a particular member for a response, you need to put an "@" in front of their name (Example : @tonythetiger) When you do this, you will see their name in blue when you post.

We look forward to hearing from you, and welcome any comments, concerns, and suggestions you may have. Remember, the only stupid question is the one not asked.....

Once again, welcome to the community!

:D
I've made the thread sticky so it doesn't sink.

To all the new members:
  • You are all welcome. Most members are really nice, but there can always be someone who isn't. Don't worry about them.
  • Sometimes written communications may lead to miss interpretations. When in doubt, chose the most favourable interpretation.
  • Crypto in general, and Darkcoin in particular, are complex. Don't worry if you don't understand. Read. Ask. Repeat.
Enjoy, this should be fun!!!
