    I still do not see enough evidence in this documentary, that supports your claim that restrictions of the Litecoin code were not responsible and therefore warrants a correction of our official Dash instamine history here : https://dashpay.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/OC/pages/19759164/Dash+Instamine+Issue+Clarification

    I am aware that Evan used code examples from Quark and Primecoin, but in the end he did fork Xcoin from the Litecoin codebase, which means in my view that the code changes he implemented
    to correct the instamine (as described here : https://dashdot.io/alpha/?page_id=118), were indeed fixes to the Litecoin codebase.
    Which means point 1. in my eyes is still correct.

    Also Litecoin founder Charlie Lee publicly announced 2 months ago there was a Litecoin fastmine that ocurred in Litecoin first few days, resulting in a fastmine of 500.000 LTC.

    I have difficulty believing the Litecoin fastmine only occurred due to the amount of people and hashrate, and not due to some difficulty bug in Litecoin's code base.
    The same bug that then also showed up in Xcoin, when it forked from Litecoin.

    Just because Charlie Lee states that there was no difficulty bug in Litecoin codebase (eventhough Litecoin got hit with a fastmine just like Dash), does not mean we have to believe this at face value.
