What is/was grumpy?I consider BTC a reserve currency, DRK the only alt with any additional utility on the roadmap.... all else are crap. I'm helping the group behind Grumpy as it was profitable to mine for a little while and i'm still sitting on a bunch after the bottom fell out.
Tried Lite and Doge but wasn't impressed by either. Without anonymity, you have nothing. I know I'm preaching to the choir here. Don't see how Doge can keep things going, just by being 'meme' based lmao. Ridiculous how much attention it attracted.DRK seems to have a pretty savvy following, so I'm pretty sure few people here are getting caught up in too many of the fad coins (like Auroracoin). Wondering what this crowd is buying or mining besides DRK?
I used Worldcoin to test how quick it was. And yeah, it was speedy. Unfortunately you've got the orphans problem. It looks like the developers didn't think or didn't care about that. They went for a quick fix. And it's not enough on its own to justify using it IMO.Wondering what this crowd is buying or mining besides DRK?
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 things like Darkcoin to fit niches.Only in DRK. Nothing else captures my imagination in the way DRK has.
Also, I back TanteStefana's comments! For me it really grates how the crypto-community has already decided that BTC is (or should be) the de facto standard and that anything else is an altcoin. But this phenomenon has really been driven by mainstream media. BTC gets so much free attention from the corporate media, even though everything is on a public ledger. It's like there is an end-to-end corporate machine out there, promoting BTC. Who are these people, to demand that we regard BTC as the currency?
same with me and Doge, it was stupid profitable for like a week, I made like $200 off a single radeon 7850 in a matter of days.But small confession:
I mined about 2M Coinye coins when it first came out (before it collapsed). I don't know why... all the hubub just seemed hilarious.
It's 5 algorithm but it's not a complex hash like X11 the 5 algorithms are split into semi-autonomous pools with their own difficulty. So theoretically you could get the same amount of coins on a CPU on a CPU only algorithm as a guy using an ASIC on another algorithm.What's interesting about myriad? I've seen it mentioned somewhere before...
