Qbundle Guide (Step by step setup & Bootstrap) https://burstwiki.org/wiki/QBundle
1( I want to mine or activate My account. Where do find the multiple coins?
You only need 1, an outgoing transaction or reward reassignment will set the public key. Get them from:
https://www.reddit.com/burstcoinmining/comments/7q8zve/initial_burstcoin_requests/

2( I bought coins on Bittrex and want to move to my new wallet, but can't. Why?
Bittrex will only send to accounts with a public key (not a Burst requirement) so see number 1 and either set the name on the account (IF you will not mine) or set the reward recipient to the pool. Either action will enable the account and allow for transfers from Bittrex.
3( I sent coins from Poloniex/anywhere to Bittrex and they don’t show up after a considerable time. Why?
You need to set an unencrypted message on the transaction, informing Bittrex which account to send the funds to (this is in the directions on Bittrex). Did you do this? Contact Bittrex support with all the details and eventually you will get your funds.
4( How much can I make on Burst?
https://explore.burst.cryptoguru.org/tool/calculate
Gives you an average over time assuming a few things like: Average luck/100% uptime/no overlapping/fees on pool/good plot scan time (<20 seconds) if you do not have all of these, you may not see that number.
5( If I use SSD’s would I make more money?
No, it’s 95% capacity and 5% scan time that determine success. More plot area = better deadlines = better chance of forging a block, or better rates from a pool.
6( What is ‘solo’ and ‘pool’ (wasn’t his name Chewbacca?)
Solo is where you attempt to ‘forge’ (mine) a block by yourself; you get 100% of the block reward and fees. But you only receive funds if you forge, no burst for coming in second place.
Pools allow a group of miners to ‘pool’ together their resources and when a miner wins, they give the pool the winnings (this is done by the reward assignment you completed earlier), it is then divided according to different percentages and methods and burst is sent out according to pool rules (minimum pay-out, time, etc.)
7( I have been mining for 2 days and my wallet doesn’t show any Burst WHY?
Mining solo: it is win-or-lose, nothing in between, and wining is luck and plot size. Pool mining: because it costs 1 burst to send burst, the pools have either a time requirement (every X days) or a minimum amount (100 burst +) so you need to research your pool. Some pools allow for you to set the limit (cryptoGuru and similar) to be met before sending
8( How do I see what I have pending?
On CryptoGuru, based pools, it’s the ‘Pending (burst)’ column, other pools, look for the numbers next to your burst ID. One is Paid and the other pending.
9( I’m part of a pool and I forged a block, but I didn’t recieve the total value of the block, why?
A pool has 2 basic numbers that denote the pay-out method, in the format ‘XX-XX’ (i.e. 50-50) The first number is the % paid to the block forger (miner) and the second is the retained value, which is paid to historic ‘shares’ (or, past blocks that the pool didn’t win, but had a miner that was ‘close’ to winning with a good submitted deadline)
Examples of pools:
0-100 (good for <40TB)
20-80 (30-80TB)
50-50 (60-200TB)
80-20 (150-250)
100-0 (solo mine, 150+ TB)
Please note that there is an overlap as this is personal preference and just guidance; a higher historical share value means a smoother pay-out regime, which some people prefer. If fees are not factored in, or are the same on different pools, the pay-out value will be the same over a long enough period.
10( Is XXX model of hard drive good? Which one do you recommend?
CHEAP is best. If you have 2 new hard drives, both covered by warranty, get the one with the lowest cost per TB (expressed as $/TB , calculated by dividing the cost by the number of terabytes) because plot size is KING,
11( How many drives can I have on my machine?
For best performance, you can have up to 2 drives per thread (3 on a new fast AVX2 CPU). So that quad-core core-2-quad can have up to 8 drives, but a more modern i7 with 4 cores + hyper threading can squeeze 8 * 3 or 24 drives. (Performance while scanning will suffer)
12( Can I game while I mine?
Some people have done so, but you cannot have the ‘maximum’ number of drives and play games generally.
13( Can I mine Burst and GPU mine other coins?
Yes, if you CPU Mine Burst.
14( I’m GPU plotting Burst and GPU mining another coin, my plots are being corrupted, why?
My advice is dedicating a GPU to either mining or plotting, don’t try to do both.
15( What is a ‘plot’?
A plot is a file that contains Hashes, these hashes are used to mine burst. A plot is tied to an account, but they can be created (with the same account ID) on other machines and connected back to your miner(s).
16( Where can I trade/buy/sell Burst?
A list of exchanges is maintained on https://www.reddit.com/burstcoin/ (on the right, ‘Exchanges’ tab) the biggest at the moment are Bittrex and Poloniex, some offer direct Fiat-to-Burst purchase (https://indacoin.com for example)
17( Do I have to store my Burst off the exchange?
No, but it’s safer from hackers who target exchanges, if you cannot guarantee the safety or security of your home computer from Trojans etc, then it might be best to leave on an exchange (but enable 2FA security on your account PLEASE!)
18( What security measures can I take to keep my coin safe?
When you create an account, sign out and back in to your wallet (to make sure you have copied the pass phrase correctly) and keep multiple copies of the key (at least one physically printed or written down and in a safe place, better in 2 places) do not disclose the passphrase to anyone. Finally use either a local wallet or a trusted web wallet (please research before using any web wallet)
19( How can I help Burst?
Run a wallet, which will act as a node (or if you’re a programmer, contact the Dev team Bring attention to burst (without ‘shilling’ or trying to get people to buy) And help translate into your local language
Be a productive member of the community and contribute experience and knowledge if you can, or help others get into Burst.
20( Will I get coins on the fork(s) and where will they be?
There will be no new coin, and no new coins to be given/air dropped etc, the forks are upgrades to burst and there will not be a ‘classic’ or ‘new’ burst.
21( Will I need to move my Burst off of the exchange for the fork?
No, your transactions are on the block chain, which will be used on the fork, they will be visible after the move; nothing will need to be done on your side.
22( Where can I read about the progress of Burst and news in general on the community?
There is no finer place than https://www.burstcoin.ist/
23( What are the communities for Burst and the central website?
Main website: https://www.burst-coin.org/

Burstforum.net: https://www.burstforum.net/
Getburst forum: https://forums.getburst.net/

24( When will Burst partner up with a company?
Burst is a currency, the USD does not ‘partner up’ with a company, the DEV team will not partner up and give over to special interests.
25( Why is the DEV team anonymous?
They prefer anonymity, as it allows them to work without constant scrutiny and questions unless they wish to engage, plus the aim is for Burst to become a major contender, and this brings issues with security. They will work and produce results, they owe you nothing and if you cannot see the vision they provide then please do not ‘invest’ for short term gain.
26( When moon/Lambo/$100/make me rich?
My crystal ball is still broken, come back to the FAQ later for answer (seriously, this is a coin to hold, if you want to day-trade, good luck to you)
27( How can I better educate myself and learn about Dymaxion?
Read about the Dymaxion here: https://www.reddit.com/burstcoin/wiki/dymaxion
28( My reads are slow, why?
There are many reasons for this, if your computer has a decent spec it’s likely due to USB3 hub issues, or plugging into a USB2 hub, but other reasons can be multiple plots in the same folder, but it’s best to visit the mining subreddit. They can help more than an simple FAQ https://www.reddit.com/burstcoinmining/
29( I have a great idea for Burst (not proof of stake related)?
Awesome! Please discuss with the DEV team on discord https://discordapp.com/invite/RPhpjVv
(Please be aware that this is a public forum, you need to find who to ask/tell)
30( I have a great idea for Burst (Proof of stake related)?
No. if you want a POS, find a POS coin. On the tangle which is being implemented a POS/POW/POC coin can be created, but BURST will always be POC mined. You are welcome to implement a proof of stake coin on this!
31( Will the Dev team burn any coins?
Burst is not an ICO, so any coins will need to be bought to be burnt. You are welcome to donate, but the DEV team have no intention of burning any coins, or increasing the coin cap.
32( When will there be an IOS wallet?
IOS wallet is completed; we are waiting for it to go on the app store. Apple is the delaying factor.
33( Why do overlapping plots matter?
Plots are like collections of lottery tickets (and if only one ticket could win). Having 2 copies is not useful, and it means that you have less coverage of ‘all’ the possible numbers. It’s not good, avoid.
34( My local wallet used to run, I synchronised it before and now it says ‘stopped’. when I start it, it stops after a few seconds, what should I do?
I suggest that you change the database type to portable MariaDB (on Qbundle, at the top, ‘Database’ select, ‘change database’) and then re-import the database from scratch (see 35)
35( Synchronising the block chain is slow and I have the patience of a goldfish. What can I do?
On Qbundle , ‘Database’ select ‘Bootstrap chain’ and make sure the CryptoGuru repository is selected, then ‘start Import’ this will download and quickly stuff the local database (I suggest Portable MariaDB, see 34) (lol, loop)
36( What will the block reward be next month/will the block rewards run out in 6 months?
https://www.ecomine.earth/burstblockreward/ Rewards will carry on into 2026, but transaction fees will be a bigger % by then, and so profitable mining will continue.
37( How can I get started with Burst (wallet/mining/everything) and I need it in a video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJLhw37Lh_8 Watch and be enlightened.
38( Can I mine on multiple machines with the same account?
Yes, if you want to pool mine this can be done (but be prepared for small issues like reported size being incorrect. Just be sure to keep question 33 in mind.)
39( Why do some of my drives take forever to plot?
Most likely they are SMR drives, it’s best to plot onto another SSD and then move the finished plot/part of a plot across to the SMR drive as this is much quicker. SMR drives are fine on the read, just random writes that are terrible.
So plot an SMR drive quickly, plot to a non SMR or better still SSD drive, in as big a chunk as possible (fewer files better) and move. a version of Xplotter, called Splotter, can do this easily.
https://github.com/NoParamedic/SPlotter
40( I have a great idea; why not get listed on more exchanges!!
Exchanges list coins because of 2 reasons:
  1. Clients email and REQUESTING Burst and provide details like:
    i. https://www.burst-coin.org/information-for-exchanges
  2. The coin pays (often A LOT, seriously we’ve been asked for 50 BTC)
I suggest you speak with your exchange and ask ‘when will they offer Burst?’
41( Do you have a roadmap?
https://www.burst-coin.org/roadmap
42( Why is the price of Burst going up/down/sideways/looping through time?
The price of burst is still quite dependent upon Bitcoin, meaning that if Bitcoin gains, the value of Burst gains, if Bitcoin drops then Burst also drops. If there is news for Burst then we will see something independent of Bitcoin moving. Variations can be because of people buying in bulk or selling in bulk. There are also ‘pump and dump’ schemes that we detest, that can cause spikes in price that have nothing to do with news or Bitcoin, just sad people taking advantage of others.
43( Where is the best place to go with my mining questions?
https://www.reddit.com/burstcoinmining/
or https://t.me/BurstCoinMining
44( What hardware do you advise me to buy, is this computer good?
See question 43 for specific questions on hardware, it depends on so many variables. The ‘best’ in my opinion is a 36 bay Supermicro storage server, usually they have dual 6-core CPU’s and space for 36 drives. No USB cables, plotting and mining monster, anything else, DYOR.
45( Where do you buy your hard drives?
I have bought most from EBay in job lots, and some refurbished drives with short warranties. Everything else I have bought, from Amazon.
46( Can I mine on my Google drive/cloud based storage?
In short: no. If you want to try, and get to maybe 1 TB and then find that your local connection isn’t fast enough, or that shortly after, your account is blocked for various reasons. Please be my guest.
47( Can I mine on my NAS?
Some you can mine with the NAS (if it can run the miner, it can scan locally) but generally they’re not very fast. good for maybe 16 TB? Having a plot on a NAS and mining from another computer depends on the network speed between the NAS and scanning computer. I believe you can scan about 8 TB (maybe a bit more) and keep the scan times to within acceptable, but YMMV.
48( How can I set up a node?
No need to set up a node, just set up a wallet (version 2.0.4) or Qbundle (2.2) and it will do the rest
49( Are the passphrases secured?
I’ll leave the effort to a few people to show how secure a 12-word passphrase is: https://burstforum.net/topic/4766/the-canary-burst-early-warning-system Key point: brute forcing it will be around 13,537,856,339,904,134,474,012,675,034 years.
50( I logged into my account (maybe with a different burst ID) and see no balance!!
I have dealt with this very issue multiple times, and there are only 3 options:
  1. You have typed in the password incorrectly
  2. You have copy-pasted the password incorrectly
  3. You are trying to log into a ‘local wallet’ which the block chain has not finished updating
The last one generally leaves the burst ID the same, but old balances will show. No, this is not a security problem, and yes, windows loves to add spaces after the phrase you enter when copied, and that space is important in getting to your account.
51( Are there channels for my language?
Telegram:
Spanish: https://t.me/burstcoin_es
German: https://t.me/Burstcoinde
Italian: https://t.me/BurstCoinItalia
Forum:
Spanish: https://burst-coin.es/index.php/forum/index
Discord:
Spanish: https://discordapp.com/invite/RaaGna9
Bulgarian: https://discord.gg/r4uzTd
(there are others, please contact me to put up)
52( I am mining in a pool, and it says that my effective capacity is lower than I actually have, why?
  1. If you've not been mining for >48 hours, or just added additional capacity, it will take time.
  2. The value fluctuates (normally, +-5% but can be up to 10% at times)
  3. Read on the ‘Quick info’ tab about adjusting your deadline to compensate for changes i. revisit once a month for best results
  4. If you have overlapping plots it will also be lower so be aware of this (see question 33)
53( What pool should I join?
First of all, read question 9, after you have understood that it depends on the size (and how patient you are) select from the following list: https://www.ecomine.earth/burstpools/
54( What miner to use?
I use Blago’s miner, there are many out there but Blago’s works for me on CPU mining, it can be found in Qbundle.
55( What Wallet to use (I use windows)?
Qbundle: https://github.com/PoC-Consortium/Qbundle/releases/ guide: https://burstwiki.org/wiki/QBundle
56( What Wallet to use (Linux)?
https://package.cryptoguru.org/ for Debian and Ubuntu, for Mac. read:
https://www.ecomine.earth/macoswalletinstallguide/
57( Will i need to 'replot' after POC2 (second fork) happens?
No, there will be a tool which will optimise, but it is not CPU intensive (it basically re-shuffles your plot) and is just IO intensive. You do not need to replot.
TurboPlotter and https://github.com/PoC-Consortium/Utilities/tree/mastepoc1to2.pl are tools that will/can be used to actuate optimization, but PLEASE wait with optimization until after the hard fork.
58( Will the transaction fee always be 1 burst?
No, dynamic fees are coming in the next fork.

Why is getting Doge so frustrating!

I have followed the community here for the last few months and I believe in Doge, it's real, it's going to happen, and you wonderful shibes are making it happen!
Here's my dilemma. I only have a tablet, no desktop so no mining. Tried to get a friend to help me set up amazon computing time to mine, but again, I only have a tablet and can't install the software. (also, it's above my expertise level). I want to buy some then but after registering and verifying with sites like satoshi I have to send a certified money order to Canada, and without a car and the closest bank 20 mikes away that's not likely till I can get a ride to town and to thatbthen the post office, then wait a week or two... UGH!
Why is getting Doge so hard for ordinary people like me? Aftervtalking with friends, they all said the same thing, the hurdles to get involved (and mining is waaaay over their heads) are too too much and they will simply not mess with it.
If there was a way that a Dogeless Shibe like myself can get some Doge with just a bank card?
Please help! I would love to go to the moon with you all, but I'd at least like to help push the rocket off the launch pad if nothing else.

Earn Bitcoin with an app (Simple, fast, and not a Bitcoin Faucet)

So for the past month I have been using an app on the play store called Bitit.
It gives you credits in exchange for downloading apps. Those credits can be redeemed for bitcoin directly into your bitcoin. wallet.
Unlike other apps that give you credits in exchange for downloading apps, this one immediately gives you the credits after the download, and so you don't have to go through the bullshit of having to register yourself or completing a task. Just download, open, and get credits. To redeem for bitcoin, you need 500 credits, and most apps give you well over 100 credits for a download.
You can also get credits everyday just for using the app and getting your daily reward. You also get loyalty credits from the apps that you install and keep on your phone. You just go to loyalty rewards, click the apps you have installed, and you get credits just for opening them.
You can also get credits for referring people. If you refer someone, you get 50 credits when they install it, and 10% of all the credits they earn. If your referred person refers another person for themselves, you get 10% of the other referred person's credits.
This app does not require any personal information of you and there is no signup. To use the app, it asks for you phone number and that is it. It is supposed to call you to confirm its your number (it never calls you) and you can use the app.
Now, if you are like me, I use my mom's phone number as well as my own. But, I don't have the app installed on her phone. Instead, I have an old phone, and put her number into the app, it will say the call failed and it will text a code instead. I get the code from her phone, and type it in to the old broken phone that is connected to wifi. This means her actual phone has nothing to do with the app, and the other old phone can download credits. I tried using my own personal phone number on 3 devices to see if I can get triple the credits for downloading the same apps, but your phone number is used to remember your credits and apps, so if you install an app on one device, the offer disappears as well on the other devices. So maybe if you want to save memory on your phone, install the app on an old phone no one uses, and put in your phone number, wait for it to say call is unavailable, get the code from your phone, and put it in the old phone. Now you can just download apps on and old phone and get bitcoin direct to your bitcoin wallet.
Through this app, you can realistically make 4 to five dollars a week if you download every single day and chack at all times of day to see apps that give you tons of credits.
The apps offered are usually games, and apps from actual companies like Walgreens, McDonalds, Rhapsody, Paypal, Ebay, etc.
I personally love downloading Rhapsody because they always give you more than 500 credits when you download it. (remember you get points for merely opening the app, you dont have to register for anything).
Although Loyalty rewards are nice, I uninstall every app because my phone is only 8gb. Besides that, the same app will likely be offered tomorrow, and you get more credits for installing it again, than keeping it in your phone and getting the loyalty Credits.
Now you might ask, well what do I use Bitcoin for, and what is this wallet you are telling me about?
Ok so a bitcoin wallet is self explanatory as it is a wallet for your bitcoins. You can get a wallet online, or in the app store. I highly recommend using BitX on the google play store. You register with your email, it tells you how much money you have in USD and in Bitcoin, and it tells you the value of Bitcoin.
Notice that this is unlike other Beer money, because the Price of Bitcoin goes up and down, so if it goes up to like 1200 like it was last year, and you had 20 dollars worth when it is 400, you will now have 60 USD. That is why I haven't bought anything yet with my bitcoin as I am waiting for the price to go up, so I get more money.
You can use bitcoins to buy reddit gold, and other things. You can sell bitcoins directly to people, or you can buy gift cards for amazon, and other places if you just google it.
I have made 25 dollars so far in USD, but as the price fluctuates, I sometimes have 23 and other times 29.
There are other apps exactly the same format as this Bitit app, and are from the same company. The other apps are TidBit, and TopitApp. They work the exact same way, look the same, but they sometimes have different offers, so you can use all 3 apps on your phone and have 3 different amounts of credits for the apps. Not only that, but you can claim your daily reward for each app every single day.
To further clarify, these are not bitcoin faucets. You get credits for downloading apps and opening them. You can immediately uninstall those apps after you open them. (that is what I do). 500 credits are about 30 cents, but you can easily make that and can redeem once or twice a day, and remember you can use the 3 apps.
Here is a picture of the app http://i.imgur.com/krd3cEz.png I know it says 0 credits earned, but that id because I just redeemed over 1000 credits that I earned today, and it can be seen from my Bitcoin Wallet Transactions from BitX here: http://i.imgur.com/HVbvRT3.png
Here is proof that I have made 25 dollars so far: http://i.imgur.com/GKrzfhf.png
Here are the links to the app (I dont think its available for IOS)
Bitit Ref NonRef
Tidbit Ref NonRef
TopitApp Ref NonRef
Thanks for reading. I just thought I'd share because I love reading the posts here. I personally use bing rewards, my coke rewards, and perk TV and can say that although I have made 45 bucks in amazon gift cards, I have made 25 dollars apart from the 45 even quicker with this bitcoin app.
(also quick note), yes you can click the links, and it'll take you to the play store even if you are on your computer. You can download the app to your phone from your computer.
EDIT: I just remembered something that I need to mention. When you download apps, they say "Up to___ credits" meaning it is not an exact amount. If they tell you they'll give you 430, they'll probably give you from 200 to 390 credits and not exactly 430
EDIT 2: For those wondering, i use an lg stylo from cricket and I have android 5.1.1 but the app has worked on every single android device.ive tried the app on. Even the really old cheap made in china phones
EDIT 3: the app will crash the first time you open it everyday. If you open it again, it sorks like a charm

I can afford to lose

I first learned of Bitcoin in 2010, installed the client and got my first bitcoin from The Bitcoin Faucet. Thank you Gavin, I assume it was your property.
I fell down the rabbit hole after reading Satoshi's paper (read it about 10 times so far. It gets better each time). I enabled bitcoind's mining feature on my home CPU (and possibly my work machine) and managed to solo mine a block. At the time, they were worth about $0.50 ea. A few months later, and zero blocks found, I compiled some code that allowed me to mine using my nVidia GPU. Still no blocks. Welcome slush pool! Bitcoins were flowing again (about 1/week). At this point, I figured I could make some money at this (price ~$1.00), so I spent $170 on an ATI GPU (about 10 times faster than the nVidia).
Difficulty was increasing, people were building huge GPU rigs - I wasn't one of them. I bought a few coins through MtGox and a few more with paypal. But for the most part, I was happy getting about 1BTC/week on my ATI card. I wasn't ready to spend my "real" money just yet.
I "invested" some assets on GLBSE and put it into a mining company called BITBOND. Was feeling pretty good until GLBSE was shut down and lost 50% of what I invested. I guess Bitcoin Savings and Trust (BST) was a bad idea. But, hey we're just playing around with digital tokens. No worries, I could afford to lose it - maybe $200 worth at the time. Live and learn.
Bitcoin velocity started to increase with Eric's Satoshi Dice and Charlie's BitInstant. Up to $28... Have to buy more. Crash! Back to $2.00 and bailed. Lost another $200.00.
In 2012, I made some paper wallets and gifted all my family members some BTC for x-mas. They were worth about $13/BTC. I still keep an eye on the accounts with watch only addresses on Blockchain.info. Paper wallets were created with Diceware and Amir's sx/libbitcoin, pen and paper.
GPU mining was puttering out, so I spent $300 on a BFL 5GHz ASIC with paypal. I received mine in July of 2013, mined 2 BTC over two weeks, then sold it for $350 on ebay. The mined coins were worth about $300, so I doubled my money. The difficulty increases went lunar, and that BFL miner never mined another full bitcoin. Sorry e-bay buyer.
My mining days were over and Coinbase came online. Since then, I've been lazily buying $50/week using Coinbase's recurring buy feature. All the way up to $1200 and all the way back down to $170. I've been here before. Each time though, I have more coins than I had before - and that's all that matters to me.
Bitcoin's not made me rich. I'm not driving a Ferrari with BITCOIN plates... yet. I'm only in as much as I can afford to lose. It's been a fun ride.
To all the people and companies mentioned, and to all of you building the future, Thank You.

OmniBazaar - Full review ICO

OmniBazaar - Full review ICO
OmniBazaar is a new type of e-commerce marketplace that removes the middlemen and bankers from e-commerce. OmniBazaar uses a patented “peer-to-peer-to-peer” architecture to remove the middlemen. It uses cryptocurrencies to eliminate the bankers. OmniBazaar fees are up to 100% lower than those of existing e-commerce sites like eBay and Amazon. OmniBazaar users deal directly with each other, rather than through a central site like Amazon or eBay.
.
With OmniBazaar, online buyers benefit from lower prices, and escape from "big data" tracking and "push" marketing. Social influencers enjoy a simple referral system that allows them to monetize their social networks. Users can make money by publishing listings for other user or providing escrow services in the marketplace.
.
OmniBazaar uses Bitcoin and OmniCoins for payment (instead of credit cards or PayPal). So, OmniBazaar provides a “gateway” for new cryptocurrency users to acquire their first bitcoins or OmniCoins. These new users can get coins by selling goods and services in the OmniBazaar Marketplace. This reduces the “barriers to entry” when first acquiring cryptocurrencies.

Looking at a marketplace where Buyers and sellers deal directly with each other, without an intermediary. With no central site or responsible authority monitoring the content of listings, such sites can become havens for criminal activities. E-Commerce market. OmniBazaar includes awards for the promotion of mode self-locking user (OmniCoin), efficient marketing system, social messages, tracking reputation, security agents, as well as the participation and growth of users

WHY OMNICOIN?

Fast Transactions

OmniCoin can process over 50,000 transactions per second – more than Visa and Mastercard combined. Confirmation of transactions occurs in less than 10 seconds. This gives OmniCoin the ability to serve the e-commerce market on a global scale.

Advanced Consensus System

Proof of Participation (PoP) is a new cryptocurrency security protocol. One component of PoP is the Distributed Proof of Stake (DPoS) protocol of Bitshares. We have extended and expanded DPoS by including four other metrics. The software uses these metrics to determine which group of users may process transactions. PoP entrusts the processing of transaction only to the most active marketplace users. These users would have the most to lose by trying to hack or attack the blockchain.

Utility in the Marketplace

OmniCoin tokens allow users to buy and sell quickly and easily in the OmniBazaar marketplace. They also facilitate the escrow process, registration of listings, and the reputation system in the marketplace. You can earn OmniCoins by performing services in the OmniBazaar marketplace, but they do not confer any ownership, dividends or control of the system. OmniCoins are designed to be a utility, not a security.

Decentralized Cryptocurrency Exchange

Trade cryptocurrencies without the need to trust a central site. Buy and sell cryptocurrencies locally, without a middle-man.

Distributed Escrow

OmniCoin has an escrow module to allow volunteer users to mediate between buyers and sellers who do not know or trust each other. We have implemented the OmniCoin escrow feature using 2-of-3 multi-signature transactions. It is easy to use and has a distributed network of escrow agents. Users pay a small fee to the chosen escrow agent when they choose to use the escrow feature.

  • Soft cap = $2,000,000.
  • Hard cap = $20,100,00.
  • Advisor, faucet and previous crowd-funding allocations are not included in hard cap or soft cap.

TIL the first real-world Bitcoin transaction was 10,000 BTC for 2 pizzas. In today's value, 10,000 BTC is worth $57 million USD.

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 96%. (I'm a bot)
Not only did bitcoin's public ledger seem to protect against fraud, but the predetermined release of the digital currency kept the bitcoin money supply growing at a predictable rate, immune to printing-press-happy central bankers and Weimar Republic-style hyperinflation.
Gavin Andresen, a coder in New England, bought 10,000 bitcoins for $50 and created a site called the Bitcoin Faucet, where he gave them away for the hell of it.
Laszlo Hanyecz, a Florida programmer, conducted what bitcoiners think of as the first real-world bitcoin transaction, paying 10,000 bitcoins to get two pizzas delivered from Papa John's.
On December 5, 2010, after bitcoiners started to call for Wikileaks to accept bitcoin donations, the normally terse and all-business Nakamoto weighed in with uncharacteristic vehemence.
While bitcoin is "The most exciting technology since the Internet," he says, eBay is "a giant bloodsucking corporation" and free speech "a popular myth." He is similarly excitable when predicting the future of bitcoin.
A young bitcoiner, The Real Plato, brought into the new millennium by video-blogging a cross-country car trip during which he spent only bitcoins.

Buying Gridcoin

Hello everyone
I've been participating for about two weeks now and I think I understand the mechanics of this system pretty well by now.
It's become clear to me that in order to stake within the 6 month payout window, you need either a very high magnitude, or a few thousand GRC.
In my case (~150mag, a generous GRC tip here and a few starter coins from faucets and such) I figure it'll take around 1.5 years for me to stake. That's one year too many.
I really believe in this coin and I'm willing to invest a bit of actual money to get the ball rolling, but I'd like to vest my options for doing so beforehand.
Now, I understand why sellers are weary of PayPal, as buyers might abuse their refund system, but at the same time it's the only payment option I'm really considering.
As I've so far learned, my only option would be to...
  1. Get a Bitcoin wallet
  2. Buy overpriced BTC on ebay
  3. Use a trading site to trade my BTC for the GRC I actually want
Is there an easier way? Does anyone know where I might find someone who'd be willing to sell me around 5k GRC via PayPal? I mention the amount because it might be too little to interest direct sellers.
Thanks in advance and have a great day.

Earn Bitcoin with an app (simple, quick, and not a bitcoin faucet)

So for the past month I have been using an app on the play store called Bitit. It gives you credits in exchange for downloading apps. Those credits can be redeemed for bitcoin directly into your bitcoin. wallet. Unlike other apps that give you credits in exchange for downloading apps, this one immediately gives you the credits after the download, and so you don't have to go through the bullshit of having to register yourself or completing a task. Just download, open, and get credits. To redeem for bitcoin, you need 500 credits, and most apps give you well over 100 credits for a download. You can also get credits everyday just for using the app and getting your daily reward. You also get loyalty credits from the apps that you install and keep on your phone. You just go to loyalty rewards, click the apps you have installed, and you get credits just for opening them. You can also get credits for referring people. If you refer someone, you get 50 credits when they install it, and 10% of all the credits they earn. If your referred person refers another person for themselves, you get 10% of the other referred person's credits. This app does not require any personal information of you and there is no signup. To use the app, it asks for you phone number and that is it. It is supposed to call you to confirm its your number (it never calls you) and you can use the app. Now, if you are like me, I use my mom's phone number as well as my own. But, I don't have the app installed on her phone. Instead, I have an old phone, and put her number into the app, it will say the call failed and it will text a code instead. I get the code from her phone, and type it in to the old broken phone that is connected to wifi. This means her actual phone has nothing to do with the app, and the other old phone can download credits. I tried using my own personal phone number on 3 devices to see if I can get triple the credits for downloading the same apps, but your phone number is used to remember your credits and apps, so if you install an app on one device, the offer disappears as well on the other devices. So maybe if you want to save memory on your phone, install the app on an old phone no one uses, and put in your phone number, wait for it to say call is unavailable, get the code from your phone, and put it in the old phone. Now you can just download apps on and old phone and get bitcoin direct to your bitcoin wallet. Through this app, you can realistically make 4 to five dollars a week if you download every single day and chack at all times of day to see apps that give you tons of credits. The apps offered are usually games, and apps from actual companies like Walgreens, McDonalds, Rhapsody, Paypal, Ebay, etc. I personally love downloading Rhapsody because they always give you more than 500 credits when you download it. (remember you get points for merely opening the app, you dont have to register for anything). Although Loyalty rewards are nice, I uninstall every app because my phone is only 8gb. Besides that, the same app will likely be offered tomorrow, and you get more credits for installing it again, than keeping it in your phone and getting the loyalty Credits. Now you might ask, well what do I use Bitcoin for, and what is this wallet you are telling me about? Ok so a bitcoin wallet is self explanatory as it is a wallet for your bitcoins. You can get a wallet online, or in the app store. I highly recommend using BitX on the google play store. You register with your email, it tells you how much money you have in USD and in Bitcoin, and it tells you the value of Bitcoin. Notice that this is unlike other Beer money, because the Price of Bitcoin goes up and down, so if it goes up to like 1200 like it was last year, and you had 20 dollars worth when it is 400, you will now have 60 USD. That is why I haven't bought anything yet with my bitcoin as I am waiting for the price to go up, so I get more money. You can use bitcoins to buy reddit gold, and other things. You can sell bitcoins directly to people, or you can buy gift cards for amazon, and other places if you just google it. I have made 25 dollars so far in USD, but as the price fluctuates, I sometimes have 23 and other times 29. There are other apps exactly the same format as this Bitit app, and are from the same company. The other apps are TidBit, and TopitApp. They work the exact same way, look the same, but they sometimes have different offers, so you can use all 3 apps on your phone and have 3 different amounts of credits for the apps. Not only that, but you can claim your daily reward for each app every single day. To further clarify, these are not bitcoin faucets. You get credits for downloading apps and opening them. You can immediately uninstall those apps after you open them. (that is what I do). 500 credits are about 30 cents, but you can easily make that and can redeem once or twice a day, and remember you can use the 3 apps. Here is a picture of the app http://i.imgur.com/krd3cEz.png I know it says 0 credits earned, but that id because I just redeemed over 1000 credits that I earned today, and it can be seen from my Bitcoin Wallet Transactions from BitX here: http://i.imgur.com/HVbvRT3.png Here is proof that I have made 25 dollars so far: http://i.imgur.com/GKrzfhf.png Here are the links to the app (I dont think its available for IOS) Bitit Ref Non Ref Tidbit Ref Non Ref TopitApp Ref Non Ref Thanks for reading. I just thought I'd share because I love reading the posts here. I personally use bing rewards, my coke rewards, and perk TV and can say that although I have made 45 bucks in amazon gift cards, I have made 25 dollars apart from the 45 even quicker with this bitcoin app. (also quick note), yes you can click the links, and it'll take you to the play store even if you are on your computer. You can download the app to your phone from your computer.

Create a Reddit currency

We have bitcoin, litecoin, dogecoin, dash and many others, but what we are missing is a reddit coin.
The reddit coin would be accessable to all and easy to get hold of, you could even buy it via debit card or ukash.
The reddit coin would have it's very own special website and it would look very cool and attractive.
The reddit coin would be used for reddit gold, advertising, donations, etc. A ebay style place where users could sell stuff and other users buy could also operate. There would also be reddit coin faucets. This wouldn't be all over the place as it would be all displayed on the reddit coin website.
I would be so proud as a reddior myself, if we could have our own currency.

Fun with Dogecoin

With bitcoin I well and truly missed the boat. I vaguely remember learning about the technology a few years ago and I downloaded the client tried a few faucets and the tried to get my head around actually mining some coin. I didn't have much success and after losing my coins in a computer breakdown I gave up on it.
Fast forward a few years and I start seeing bitcoin in blogs and then checked the price and was astonished to see that the value had sky rocketed, I think it was about $850 although I could be mistaken.
I was well and truly gutted that I had been so close to getting into this technology and missed my opportunity.
When a friend of mine mentioned that he had been mining some dogecoin I instantly started paying attention.
Not wanting to miss the boat this time I delved in deep and sussed out how download the wallet. The wallet took hours to sync but I stuck with it anyway. While the wallet synced I happened upon the community on reddit and I was hooked. What a great bunch of people all making it happen!
I got cgminer running on my main pc and pretty much said goodbye to playing games for the foreseeable future. I am getting roughly 350 kh/s on its 7850 ati radeon card. I joined suchcoins.com to take advantage of their mining pool and started to see the dogecoins flood in.
A friend of mine had donated his old pc without a graphics card and I decided to put this pc to use mining on the dogecoin rockface. I searched ebay and found a suitable 7750 graphics card and won the bid at £60. Will it make its money back? I hope so. Even if it doesn't I needed a card for this pc so that at some point it can be used as a minecraft box.
I started to investigate crypto currecny further and just recently have started to look at trading with cryptocoins on cryptsy. I feel like Gordon Gecko!
Just recently the dogecoin community help to get the Jamaican bob-sleigh team the funding they need to get to the olympics and its all been crazy from there!
Today I began printing out paper wallets so that I can spread the love and hand out coins to my beloved friends and family. I can't wait to see their faces as I try and explain what dogecoins are!
In short, i feel excited and proud to be part of such a great community and help move forward this technology. Dogecoins could make a massive positive change in our society and I hope you get on the rocket now as we head to the moon!
This is a post from my blog at http://dogecoina.com I hope you like it.
