Digibyte (DGB) kaufen und investieren - Bitcoin Generator

Let's push DigiByte to the next level together

Hi, awesome DGB community :) I hope everyone is having a great day, just like Bitcoin does.
I am in a DigiByte community for a long time now, I think for about 4 years. First I was just investing (buying) DGB coins, later I joined Telegram channels and now I promote it all over the place. I have been following DGB very close and I must say that this is one of the most amazing open source projects. And being open source project has a lot of benefits, everyone can contribute to it. That is one of the reasons I believe DGB will explode in coming years. And dont forget how large some of the open source projects are today, just do a quick google search and you will be surprised what all is open source.
At some point I was running a donation campaign, where I collected I think 10k DGB coins and distributed them to a couple of core members and devs, and I know thats not much but I just feel that they deserve more then what they currently get for all their effort. Then I was running a DGB related Twitter account that I started from scratch and grew it to about 2k followers in a little over year. I was just posting interesting stuff and benefits of the DGB blockchain and used good tags. I didnt even compare DGB to any other coin on my account.
There are so many amazing people in the community that are really able to see the long term picture of the project. Just look at the Josiah (Chilling Silence) for an example. He works hard on the project every day, he is making really quality YouTube videos daily, and he helps people on Telegram. He alone does so much great stuff for the project that its really unbelievable. And then think how many other amazing people are working on the project (mobile wallet, twitter, core wallet, explorers, translations, promotion, DGBAT, and I could go on for a long time). We have so much amazing tech, that projects with insane budgets cant achieve, we just lack in spreading the word about all that.
So if we want to push DGB to the next level, I think we all need to contribute a little bit more. Dont get me wrong tho, I dont mean take an hour every day to post everywhere about DigiByte. No, because DGB community is so large, every little thing will make an impact in the long term. Like and Retweet DGB tweets on Twitter, leave a friendly comment on twitter, there are a lot of Crypto related twitters, and if you leave 1 positive commend about DGB when and where it makes sense, this can have a huge impact. Watch Josiah videos on YouTube (LINK), leave a thumbs up and a comment under a video, which takes a minute. Subscribe to his and other DigiByte related channels on YT, all those little things will make a huge impact. The videos will have more likes, views and comments and will rank better, show more often under recommended videos to other people, and some people will see a friendly approach in comments and join the community. They will then do the same after learning how awesome DigiByte project as a whole is and it will turn into a snowball effect.
And we are currently not receiving the support we deserve from the outer world like some of the "top" exchanges, projects, etc. We must do it on our own.
Maybe there will be an amazing developer that will see YOUR comment about DigiByte on Twitter, YouTube or anywhere else, and they will decide to join us, code an amazing app that will be used by thousands of people, and that means so many new people get introducted to the DGB. Maybe you are active in crypto related forums? When there is the right chance, leave a comment about DGB. I remember someone asking if there is a faster way of sending Bitcoins on bitcointalk forum, I told them about DigiByte transaction speed and fees and they started using DGB then. They are now an active member on Telegram and are using DigiByte for paying their web hosting.
When the whole crypto gains more traction and bull market comes back, we must be positioned better. If we are still some relatively unknown project, the bull marked will have much less effect as if we do as much as we can right now.
The DigiByte community has been know to be the friendliest community around, lets bring that back. We have so large community that if everyone spent like 5 minutes per day, we could achieve so much more. And other YouTube channels will notice that DigiByte related videos are getting a lot of attention, and they would make DigiByte related videos too. And it would go on and on.
Like I said, we have so much amazing tech that solves real life problems. The developers are constantly working on more amazing things. Let us all step in and help by spreading the word about everything that we have.
And remember, every little action helps. Maybe it will be your comment that will make someone join our community, maybe it will be your retweet that will make someone see that tweet, maybe it will be your view that will help push the videos higher.
Thanks for taking your time to read through that, please let me know what you all think :) I think we are an amazing community, and that we can push the project so much further if we join our strengths a little bit.

I started crypto exactly 1 year ago, this is how I feel now

Well, I actually first heard about Bitcoin in the news, in May 2017. Companies were getting hacked and needed to pay with Bitcoin in order to get all their data back. This was all over the news. So I started doing some searches, not research, because I found a site where I could pay with fiat and bought literally random coins. I bought all the cheap ones thinking they would one day reach the same level as BTC. I bought Myriad, Reddcoin, Doge, Gulden, Peercoin, Feathercoin, ArtByte, Stratis, Waves, … I had no idea what I was doing. Chased some silly pumps. I also bought some Litecoin, which turned out really good. Litecoin was about $25 back in May-June. On May 31, 2017 total marketcap was $80B.
I started to learn about different exchanges (Bittrex) and bought the shilled coins on Bitcointalk; Digibyte, Siacoin, ... Then things started to go down, some coins were crashing and I saw my numbers going in red, every single one of them expect Litecoin. Thought about selling but didn’t. Looking back at this “crash”, it is a joke compared to what is happening now (February-June 2018).
I also experienced the China FUD. Literally thought crypto was dead back in November 2017. Never seen so much FUD before on Reddit. Chinese exchanges had to close, volume was dropping, everyone was selling. Scary. Looking back at it now, this was a joke as well, as FUD started to clear and 2-3 days later, the market was already recovering and going up even more. We all know what happened in mid-December 2017 and some of us were lucky enough to cash out at the right moment, some people HODL. Before this, these were also the days were we didn’t get as much positive news as we do now. Watch this sub and show me negative FUD posts.
I sold all of my shit and started over in December, started doing actual research (not going to name the coins here because of shilling) and I have now invested in coins I really believe in. Some of them are up, some are not but that’s because the market is still down. The one I believe most in is 50% down and sure, it hurts a little bit to see my money disappear haha but I have good faith that this will bring me a lot of fortune in the future.
The crash right now doesn’t really affect me. I’m buying more batches whenever I can and sure, they can still go down and I might have invested a little more than I can afford to lose, but I am seeing this as a long term. Long term isn’t a year, it’s 5-10 years and it’s money I don’t need right now. You can sell now, and buy back in later if it drops more, or you can HODL and not care about this for a few months or years. We will continue to see these crashes, probably even worse than this one and that’s why it’s important to zoom out. Look back a year ago, look back 2-3 years ago ;-)

Why Verge Needs DigiShield NOW! And Why DigiByte Is SAFE!

Hello everyone, I’m back! Someone asked a question recently on what exactly happened to XVG – Verge and if this could be a problem for DGB – DigiByte - Here: DigiByte vs Verge It was a great question and there have been people stating that this cannot be a problem for us because of DigiShield etc… with not much explanation after that.
I was curious and did a bit more investigating to figure out what happened and why exactly it is that we are safe. So take a read.

Some Information on Verge

Verge was founded in 2014 with code based on DogeCoin, it was initially named DogeCoinDark, it later was renamed Verge XVG in 2016. Verge has 5 mining algorithms as does DigiByte. Those being:
However, unlike DigiByte those algorithms do not run side by side. On Verge one block can only be mined by a single algorithm at any time. This means that each algorithm takes turns mining the chain.
Prior to the latest fork there was not a single line of code that forced any algo rotation. They all run in parallel but of course in the end only one block can be accepted at given height which is obvious. After the fork algo rotation is forced so only 6 blocks with the same algo out of any 10 blocks can be accepted. - srgn_

Mining Verge and The Exploit

What happened then was not a 51% attack per say, but the attacker did end up mining 99% of all new blocks so in fact he did have power of over 51% of the chain. The way that Verge is mined allowed for a timestamp exploit. Every block that is mined is dependent on the previous blocks for determining the algorithm to be used (this is part of the exploit). Also, their mining difficulty is adjusted every block (which last 30 seconds also part of the exploit). Algorithms are not picked but in fact as stated previously compete with one another. As for difficulty:
Difficulty is calculated by a version of DGW which is based on timestamps of last 12 blocks mined by the same algo. - srgn_
This kind of bug is very serious and at the foundation of Verge’s codebase. In fact, in order to fix it a fork is needed, either hard fork or soft fork!
What happened was that the hacker managed to change the time stamps on his blocks. He introduced a pair of false blocks. One which showed that the scrypt mining algorithm had been previously used, about 26 mins before, and then a second block which was mined with scrypt. The chain is set up so that it goes through the 5 different algorithms. So, the first false block shows the chain that the scrypt algorithm had been used in the recent past. This tricks it into thinking that the next algorithm to be used is scrypt. In this way, he was essentially able to mine 99% of all blocks.
Pairs of blocks are used to lower the difficulty but they need to be mined in certain order so they can pass the check of median timestamp of last 11 blocks which is performed in CBlock::AcceptBlock(). There is no tricking anything into thinking that the next algo should be x because there is no algo picking. They all just run and mine blocks constantly. There is only lowering the difficulty, passing the checks so the chain is valid and accepting this chain over chains mined by other algos. - segn_
Here is a snippet of code for what the time stamps on the blocks would look like:
SetBestChain: new best=00000000049c2d3329a3 height=2009406 trust=2009407 date=04/04/18 13:50:09 ProcessBlock: ACCEPTED (scrypt) SetBestChain: new best=000000000a307b54dfcf height=2009407 trust=2009408 date=04/04/18 12:16:51 ProcessBlock: ACCEPTED (scrypt) SetBestChain: new best=00000000196f03f5727e height=2009408 trust=2009409 date=04/04/18 13:50:10 ProcessBlock: ACCEPTED (scrypt) SetBestChain: new best=0000000010b42973b6ec height=2009409 trust=2009410 date=04/04/18 12:16:52 ProcessBlock: ACCEPTED (scrypt) SetBestChain: new best=000000000e0655294c73 height=2009410 trust=2009411 date=04/04/18 12:16:53 ProcessBlock: ACCEPTED (scrypt) 
Here’s the first falsified block that was introduced into the XVG chain – Verge-Blockchain.info
As you can see there is the first fake block with a time stamp of 13:50:09 for example and the next is set to 12:15:51, the following two blocks are also a fraudulent pair and note that the next block is set to 12:16:52. So essentially, he was able to mine whole blocks - 1 second per block!

The “Fix”

This exploit was brought to public attention by ocminer on the bitcointalk forums. It seems the person was a mining pool administrator and noticed the problem after miners on the pool started to complain about a potential bug.
What happened next was that Verge developers pushed out a “fix” but in fact did not really fix the issue. What they did was simply diminish the time frame in which the blocks can be mined. The attack still was exploitable and the attacker even went on to try it again!
“The background is that the "fix" promoted by the devs simply won't fix the problem. It will just make the timeframe smaller in which the blocks can be mined / spoofed and the attack will still work, just be a bit slower.” - ocminer
Ocminer then cited DigiShield as a real fix to the issue! Stating that the fix should also stipulate that a single algo can only be used X amount of times and not be dependent on when the algo was last used. He even said that DigiByte and Myriad had the same problems and we fixed them! He cited this github repo for DigiByte:

DigiShield

It seems that the reason that this exploit was so lucrative was because the difficulty adjustment parameters were not enough to reduce the rewards the attacker recieved. Had the rewards per block adjusted at reasonable rate like we do in DGB then at least the rewards would have dropped significantly per block.
The attacker was able to make off with around 60 million Verge which equals about 3.6 million dollars per today’s prices.
The exploit used by the attacker depended on the fact that time stamps could be falsified firstly and secondly that the difficulty retargeting parameters were inadequate.
Let’s cover how DigiShield works more in detail. One of the DigiByte devs gave us this post about 4 years ago now, and the topic deserves revisiting and updates! I had a hard time finding good new resources and information on the details of DigiShield so I hope you’ll appreciate this review! This is everything I found for now that I could understand hopefully I get more information later and I’ll update this post.
Let’s go over some stuff on difficulty first then I’ll try giving you a way to visualise the way these systems work.
First you have to understand that mining difficulty changes over time; it has to! Look at Bitcoin’s difficulty for example – Bitcoin difficulty over the past five months. As I covered in another post (An Introduction to DigiByte Difficulty in Bitcoin is readjusted every 2016 blocks which each last about 10 mins each. This can play out over a span of 2 weeks, and that’s why you see Bitcoin’s difficulty graph as a step graph. In general, the hash power in the network increases over time as more people want to mine Bitcoin and thus the difficulty must also increase so that rewards are proportional.
The problem with non-dynamic difficulty adjustment is that it allows for pools of miners and or single entities to come into smaller coins and mine them continuously, they essentially get “free” or easily mined coins as the difficulty has not had time to adjust. This is not really a problem for Bitcoin or other large coins as they always have a lot of miners running on their chains but for smaller coins and a few years ago in crypto basically any coin other than Bitcoin was vulnerable. Once the miners had gotten their “free coins” they could then dump the chain and go mine something else – because the difficulty had adjusted. Often chains were left frozen or with very high fees and slow processing times as there was not enough hash power to mine the transactions.
This was a big problem in the beginning with DigiByte and almost even killed DogeCoin. This is where our brilliant developers came in and created DigiShield (first known as MultiShield).
These three articles are where most of my information came from for DigiShield I had to reread a the first one a few times to understand so please correct me if I make any mistakes! They are in order from most recent to oldest and also in order of relevance.
DigiShield is a system whereby the difficulty for mining DigiByte is adjusted dynamically. Every single block each at 15 seconds has difficulty adjusted for the available hashing power. This means that difficulty in DigiByte is as close as we can get to real time! There are other methods for adjusting difficulty, the first being the Bitcoin/Litecoin method (a moving average calculated every X number of blocks) then the Kimoto Gravity Well is another. The reason that DigiShield is so great is because the parameters are just right for the difficulty to be able to rise and fall in proportion to the amount of hash power available.
Note that Verge used a difficulty adjustment protocol more similar to that of DigiByte than Bitcoin. Difficulty was adjusted every block at 30 seconds. So why was Verge vulnerable to this attack? As I stated before Verge had a bug that allowed for firstly the manipulation of time stamps, and secondly did not adjust difficulty ideally.
You have to try to imagine that difficulty adjustment chases hashing power. This is because the hashing power on a chain can be seen as the “input” and the difficulty adjustment as the corresponding output. The adjustment or output created is thus dependent on the amount of hashing power input.
DigiShield was designed so that increases in mining difficulty are slightly harder to result than decreases in mining difficulty. This asymmetrical approach allows for mining to be more stable on DigiByte than other coins who use a symmetrical approach. It is a very delicate balancing act which requires the right approach or else the system breaks! Either the chain may freeze if hash power increases and then dumps or mining rewards are too high because the difficulty is not set high enough!
If you’ve ever taken any physics courses maybe one way you can understand DigiShield is if I were to define it as a dynamic asymmetrical oscillation dampener. What does this mean? Let’s cover it in simple terms, it’s difficult to understand and for me it was easier to visualise. Imagine something like this, click on it it’s a video: Caravan Weight Distribution – made easy. This is not a perfect analogy to what DigiShield does but I’ll explain my idea.
The input (hashing power) and the output (difficulty adjustment) both result in oscillations of the mining reward. These two variables are what controls mining rewards! So that caravan shaking violently back and forth imagine those are mining rewards, the weights are the parameters used for difficulty adjustment and the man’s hand pushing on the system is the hashing power. Mining rewards move back and forth (up and down) depending on the weight distribution (difficulty adjustment parameters) and the strength of the push (the amount of hashing power input to the system).
Here is a quote from the dev’s article.
“The secret to DigiShield is an asymmetrical approach to difficulty re-targeting. With DigiShield, the difficulty is allowed to decrease in larger movements than it is allowed to increase from block to block. This keeps a blockchain from getting "stuck" i.e., not finding the next block for several hours following a major drop in the net hash of coin. It is all a balancing act. You need to allow the difficulty to increase enough between blocks to catch up to a sudden spike in net hash, but not enough to accidentally send the difficulty sky high when two miners get lucky and find blocks back to back.”
AND to top it all off the solution to Verge’s time stamp manipulation bug is RIGHT HERE in DigiShield again! This was patched and in Digishield v3 problems #7
Here’s a direct quote:
“Most DigiShield v3 implementations do not get data from the most recent blocks, but begin the averaging at the MTP, which is typically 6 blocks in the past. This is ostensibly done to prevent timestamp manipulation of the difficulty.”
Moreover, DigiShield does not allow for one algorithm to mine more than 5 blocks in a row. If the next block comes in on the same algorithm then it would be blocked and would be handed off to the next algorithm.
DigiShield is a beautiful delicate yet robust system designed to prevent abuse and allow stability in mining! Many coins have adopted out technology!

Verge Needs DigiShield NOW!

The attacker has been identified as IDCToken on the bitcointalk forums. He posted recently that there are two more exploits still available in Verge which would allow for similar attacks! He said this:
“Can confirm it is still exploitable, will not abuse it futher myself but fix this problem immediately I'll give Verge some hours to solve this otherwise I'll make this public and another unpatchable problem.” - IDCToken
DigiShield could have stopped the time stamp manipulation exploit, and stopped the attacker from getting unjust rewards! Maybe a look at Verge’s difficulty chart might give a good idea of what 1 single person was able to do to a coin worth about 1 billion dollars.
Here’s DigiByte’s difficulty steady, even and fair:
Maybe our developers could help Verge somehow – but for a fee? Or it might be a good way to get our name out there, and show people why DigiByte and DigiShield are so important!

SOURCES

Edit - Made a few mistakes in understanding how Verge is mined I've updated the post and left the mistakes visible. Nothing else is changed and my point still stands Verge could stand to gain something from adopting DigiShield!
Hi,
I hope you’ve enjoyed my article! I tried to learn as much as I could on DigiShield because I thought it was an interesting question and to help put together our DGB paper! hopefully I made no mistakes and if I did please let me know.

The stable coin with 52x upside in the next 4 - 6 months - BAY coin

I have spent A LOT of time researching BitBay over the past month or so. Few people kknow about this coin but it's actually one of the older altcoins in the space. Longevity is EXTREMELY important in this space cases in point BitShares, BlackCoin, digibyte, doge etc.. Once thought to potentially one day rival Bitcoin was, more or less, abandoned around 2015. What happened? The industry took off in 2017 and those who kept working hard that had similar momentum circa 2015, were paid off exponentially. Cases in point: DarkCoin (rebranded to DASH and had and still continues development), Monero, LiteCoin, Ethereum etc. etc. BitBay has been just as active as the LiteCoins and DASH's from that time period and this info is ascertainable by studying their Reddit and BitcoinTalk thread extensively. No gaps of a month or multi-month in info. Team growth the team has apparently grown from a few to nearly 2 dozen full time team members.
So okay there's an active dedicated team, but what about the dev and the core fundamentals of project?
The dev David Zimbeck is thought to be a top 20 dev in crypto (CoinGecko) and top 200 by commit volume (CryptoMiso) yet the marketcap ranks them currently at 228. Their should be somewhat of a convergence over time moving all 3 numbers more to an average. This is a metric I've used to identify value buy criteria since mid-2017 and there's no reason it should continue to be relevant.
Project fundamentals: Bitbay has several wallets, one employing a free trade market powered by BitHalo which is a legacy project that provides a mechanism to trade and interact in a trustless manner. The real value is in the dynamic peg that's been in development since late 2016 and set to unroll live on exchanges in the coming months. What's so important about this peg? The peg uses a voting system to constrict and expand the circulating supply of coins, which in turn affects price due to supply/demand. The peg is now active in their cold wallet system and the only hold up has been the need for at least one public exchange to enact this functionality on their exchange. Well from some snooping around I've found out they are in negotiations with exchange BTC-Alpha to enact their. Bittrex apparently wanted 25 bitcoin and that's okay and dandy but I understand shopping that around a bit to find a better rate. If the functionality is active on at least one exchange than arbitrage should fill in the gaps on the others. Worse case scenario, upside $.50 and project has trouble tying exactly to $1 but finds an equilibrium and peg somewhere below. Best case scenario fluctuation between $.95 and $1.05 which is thought to be more or less standard for stable coins. MAKR boasts it stays at a dollar and that's great but I'm not interested in BAY because if their stability. I'm interested in BAY because of the extreme upside. I believe economics are utilized far too little in cryptocurrency exchange & development. I believe that math is a trader or investors best friend in cryptocurrency still next to insider info and if you're not in the who's-who circle in crypto than legitimate insider info is extremely rare and hard to come by I imagine. I took time to write about this because I believe adoption will help move the project along faster and perhaps also help other exchanges adopt their protocol at a reasonable rate.
Current price of BAY now = $.0198, projection by mid-2019 $.44 - $1.05 and yes there's a wide margin of error in the price prediction but that's a quality problem when my worse case scenario is still 20x gain. Happy trading and I hope someone enjoyed this :)

Getting DigiByte listed on Binance - Progress update

There’s been a bunch of requests lately to get DigiByte listed on Binance. I’m here to confirm today that the hold-up in doing-so is not due to anything in our control.
Let me set the scene for you: We have been listed on approx 2x exchanges per week, every week, for the last few months. This has been in part due to some of the Foundation and some incredibly dedicated community members, again keeping in mind none of this is paid work. I want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the many hours that these people put in, filling out forms, chasing exchanges, getting information and technical details to them.
Then, we find out there are other exchanges that we’re listed on, without our knowledge. Again, that’s fantastic, and because we are a decentralized blockchain with the source-code open and freely available on Github, this means there’s nothing preventing Exchanges from doing this. Because the DigiByte Core Wallet has it’s basis on the Bitcoin Core Wallet, if an Exchange has integrated Bitcoin or Litecoin, they have the technical know-how to integrate DigiByte, and it’s not a difficult task.
Back to Binance.
There is a form that Binance request new sign-ups complete. A pretty standard practice, basically to weed out the time-wasters and brand new ICO’s that aren’t worth anything at all. Totally cool, and so this was filled out earlier last year, and again just one day after Christmas. No problems there.
Since then, Binance have requested the completion of a NDA form. Unfortunately this NDA form is completely not applicable to DigiByte, as we are not a central company, we're not an ICO that raised funds, nor do we take any percentage of each newly minted block as other coins do.
I’m sure you’re all well aware that DigiByte relies on the donation of time of all its Foundation Members, as none of us have been given any DigiByte by anybody to survive on, and once the Foundation has been fully established then down the line decisions will be made regarding how those funds are best spent. For now though, everything is done from the generosity of the hearts of those in the Foundation and community, because we believe in this project, it’s merits, and what it stands for.
So this NDA form, we can’t in good faith sign it, as it’s not applicable to us and legally there’s no point in putting ourselves into a situation where things aren’t clear. However, it begs the question: Why is there an NDA form required at all? Anybody can list DigiByte on their own Exchange, and it doesn’t require us to be made privy to any technical or financial details about a company. They basically download the wallet, as you and I would, integrate it into their Exchange through RPC calls to the digibyted, and that’s about it. The RPC / P2P port details are all in the BitcoinTalk thread. No NDA required, and the listing can be completely done without any input / help from the DigiByte Foundation, community or developers.
It gets better though:
On the application form (Keep in mind this has been completed twice now), there are a number of things such as:
You accept that Binance reserves the right to de-list your coin at any time, for any reason, solely at Binance's discretion. * With the answer options being: - Yes, I agree. - No, no need to hit the submit button.
That’s fair, there is no problem with them de-listing DigiByte if they want, Exchanges do it all the time for coins and ICO’s that have a very small volume. DigiByte however has done a few thousand BTC daily volume just on Bittrex alone (Just using them for comparison). Even with the admirable 0.1% fees that Binance charges, that’s still a few BTC every single day in trading-fees alone, which makes it seem like DigiByte would be a worthwhile investment for them to add on their own accord.
So the problem with us accepting donations from the community as an attempt to pay a listing fee to get on to Binance, they could still de-list DigiByte at any time for no good reason, we have to agree to that before they’ll actually accept the submission. On top of this even if we do pay the “Listing fee”, DigiBytes acceptance on to the Exchange is not guaranteed. We would have no come-back for that, no repercussions, nothing that we can do to prevent it. The CEO even states in his “Tips for getting listed”:
High fee does not guarantee listing, but it may increase your review priority. If you don't want to pay a listing fee, simply put 0. Free market will determine the rest.
It gets better,
On top of the NDA requirement, there is no TOS or similar at Binance. While in my eyes this doesn’t prevent DigiByte from being listed (DigiByte is on a few Exchanges without terms of service thanks to their own initiative), it does mean that this isn’t an ideal scenario. Why is this not an ideal scenario? Because there is no legal recourse for any of the users, no obligation to help them, and if they were to take the “Listing fee”, they can literally just take it and run.
I don’t think it would be very responsible of the DigiByte Foundation to arrange crowd-sourcing the funding, for a venture such as this, where there are absolutely no guarantees at all.
While we admire the enthusiasm of the community and your willingness to assist, the last thing we want is for it to all be for nothing. If the community is really keen on donating to a project, we would recommend donating to the recent development that has been undertaken on the iOS wallet, headed up by a community members company. This will be a big step forwards for DigiByte and fills a gaping hole in our arsenal (See: https://github.com/Racecraft/digibytewallet-ios for donation link at the bottom of the page)
In the mean time, we are still pursuing avenues to get us listed, while maintaining true to our honor and integrity, and doing all that we can to look out for the community.
Besides, Binance would make more than this within a few days worth of listing us, based on trading-fees alone, so the "requirement" of a listing fee just does not make sense.
Edit: Made a poor attempt at fixing the formatting coz apparently I still suck at the markup required here to make it look pretty

ATOMIC WALLET: IT'S USUAGE AND CREDIBILITY.

Often times, I hear people lament about their ugly experiences encountered using original exploring a project. Some with some good reviews and majority with bad reviews. I got to know about this atomic wallet through a friend. My first time experience was indeed amazing and wondrous. All thanks to the team behind this project. They are incredible team!
In the light of this note, I shall explore my experience through writing in this content.
Much the same as each different undertakings, Atomic Wallet is a structured and well designed and composed application, with astounding highlights installed in it. The magnificence of the application is the seen in the fact that it is downloadable on Android gadget and different gadgets.
Atomic wallet is a Universal Multi-Assets Wallet that takes into consideration different resources/coins in it with assortments of capacities that can be performed in it. Clients of this application can,
These assets can be traded on different digital forms of money.
The of Atomic Wallet, is a general non-custodial answer for more than 300 digital forms of money. The wallet APP Secures, oversees and trades cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, XRP (Ripple), Ethereum thus numerous different coins and tokens directly in your grasp, anyplace anytime,anyday as long as you have the wallet application on your gadget.
WHAT MAKES ATOMIC WALLET EXCEPTIONAL
The security of crypto assets is of paramount to every investor. Hence, atomic Wallet has all these at fore front. They include:
In the Atomic wallet application, client's private keys are encoded on the cell phone. These keys are ensured with a 12-word memory helper passphrase known just the client.
Another captivating element of the Atomic wallet application is the way that client can trade a scope of digital forms of money to some other just in a couple of snaps.
With Atomic WALLET's application, clients obscurity is ensured as in the application doesn't store any information on clients installments, it doesn't require any verification,it doesn't have any entrance to your wallet addresses, and doesn't follow your exchange. Just the client can control his/her assets.

A New York Coin Development Vision: How BTC could be 'powered by NYC' via Lightning Network

Preface
Lightning network offers slow congested chains, like Bitcoin, some scaling relief, so it's become known as a scaling solution. It may end up becoming far more famous as the best supported atomic swap technology to come into being. A big chain like Bitcoin has little incentive to help its users move to smaller faster chains smoothly, so Lightning is almost a trojan horse that can dramatically improve accessibility of all altcoins that also implement lightning networks.
Atomic swaps will let you trade from one chain, say bitcoin, to another with lightning network, let's say litecoin, without using any centralized repository like an exchange full of arbitrary rules and limits and fees that capture your money in their insecure coffers that are a big centralized target for hackers. But atomic swaps won't always be just a less frustrating way to move between chains, as they streamline, they'll transform the way we think about chains and shrink the space between them.
Imagine pre-exchange crypto as pre oceanic shipping earth. Different chains might as well be different continents, only occasionally connected by land bridges. Then came sailing (exchanges). You could move back and forth, but it was slow, restrictive and expensive, and sunken ships took a lot of gold to the bottom of the ocean (mt.gox, nicehack). Imagine atomic swaps, be they Lightning network swaps or some other solution like blocksnet or barterdex, as mail and parcel delivery by air and rail, time and costs shrink again.
My vision is of a later version of Lightning network that's basically the internet itself. You don't even need to package your letter, you can communicate right to the computer in someone's pocket a world away. The ease of moving between chains will increase dramatically, and the first chain to position to take advantage of that, to not merely be exchanged through swaps, but to power another chain using them, will prosper enormously.
Vision
Once upon a time around the late '90s or early '00s, there was dominate search directory called Yahoo!, recently defunct, that was most people's first stop when looking for new websites. Yahoo! decided to outsource their site's search engine to an unknown little company named Google, and many people's first experience with Google in those days was a little tagline by the Yahoo! search box that read: 'powered by Google'. In just a few years, everyone's first stop to the internet was Google itself. Powering Yahoo! was Google's platform to a direct connection with web users, and they used that platform to take over the world.
New York Coin can power Bitcoin with the same intent, using an ever more streamlined Lightning Network, and essentially operating as a lightning network and scaling solution for Bitcoin by pitching to payment processors and large retailers to move their received bitcoin transactions through lightning channels out onto the NYC chain. Rather than off chain transactions that traditional LN scaling offers, we'd be offering cross chain transactions that retain the benefits of the public ledger. Off bitcoin's chain, on ours.
As payment processors and retailers began to use us, our accessibility and visibility to ordinary users would grow just as Google's did, as those payment processors would already be primed and ready to receive NYC directly, rather than trading to it only in the background. The whole vision dovetails nicely with NYC's local penetration as well, as you can ask local retailers whether they want to accept BTC at great cost and slow speed, or cut out the middle man and use the coin that powers the fastest BTC transactions directly: NYC.
The vision also works with NYC's branding. The way New York City powers the world's economy, New York Coin can power the world's blockchains. A nimble, low maintenance blockchain like NYC can take BTC's overflow and fee avoidance traffic and use it to grow into a serious competitor in its own right.
Step 1 We probably need to deal with NYC coin supply issues. First bitcointalk thread says max supply = 10B, first github says it's 100B, and current supply according to website is 130+B, so something is amiss. A fork has already been imagined to deal with this, and it's probably an important step.
Step 2 Segwit and Lightning. I would personally donate 50,000NYC to a credible developer who could update NYC to support the lightning network, test it on a testnet and implement it as Lightning develops further. I know that isn't much, but I'll also do all I can to encourage others to donate and I expect the value of NYC to rise greatly not merely on implementing the tech, but doing so with a vision of how to use it, so a dev that hodls could do quite well.
As long as we'd be getting segwit addresses and need a new prefix, may I recommend 'NYC' as the prefix instead of 'R'? It's an opportunity to extend the branding.
Step 3 Support as many decentralized exchanges as possible. I know blocksnet requires OP_CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY and I don't know if NYC has that. I don't know what Barterdex will require. These solutions seem to require using a 3rd blockchain as intermediary, which is not ideal, but right now NYC can build a brand of accessibility while waiting for Lightning Network to develop into a more universal atomic swap option, and early adopters at the new decentralized exchanges can build brand awareness by showing up before there are too many coins there.
Step 4 Increase NYC security. We'll get more miner simply by having some success and growing in price, but you want to be at the top of your algorithm or else you are vulnerable to attack. One tiny litecoin pool could 51% attack NYC right now, and fairly recently Bitconnect coin on Scrypt was successfully attacked on scrypt while it held an enormous hashrate, so only the top dog per algorithm is secure if you only use one algorithm. Digibyte has a 5 algorithm solution that requires 51% of 4, and 93% of a 5th in order to pull off the same attack, and so they're able to get a lot more security per hash than most coins.
If payment processors, large retailers, maybe even banks are going to rely on us, we can't get taken down by attacks like that. We should seriously consider importing digibyte's multi algoritm security.
Step 5 Be an early leader in Bitcoin fee avoidance. People already avoid fees by moving to litecoin in exchanges, sending litecoin to new location and then sometimes even converting back to bitcoin. Early lightning network won't be much less inconvenient than exchanges are now, but the more we brand NYC as a faster alternative, and to avoid fees in between various stops, the easier it is to position it once moving from one chain to another is more like changing lanes on the interstate than parking at an airport getting on a plane and flying over an ocean.
We should also invest as much as possible, in the far future (late 2018, 2019) in helping to smooth out how easily lightning channels let users go back and forth between congested chains like BTC and NYC.
Conclusion
I've pitched this before, to Digibyte, both because they're a fast nimble chain, and because of their 5 algorithm security. But they want to do digusign and Internet of Things. NYC seems like a coin in need of a long term mission, and I believe acting as Bitcoin's backbone can provide that purpose while complementing NYC's more short term goals of local New York adoption. Given New York City's status as backbone of the world financial system, NYC's branding is compatible with being Bitcoin's backbone.
So I offer this vision to you. I'm willing to donate to a credible developer who shares this vision and seems capable of implementing segwit and lightning, I'm also willing to try to persuade other users to donate as well and help them understand the importance, for whatever that's worth. I don't really expect you guys to adopt this, or probably even read my wall of text, but I wanted to take a shot. I've encouraged others to contribute as they can, and this idea is the most valuable contribution I can make. It's a good idea and someone is going to do it. Might as well be us.
TL;DR As lightning network develops and atomic swaps get smoother, it could become smooth enough so that one chain like NYC could power another slower more congested chain like Bitcoin, and we could grab their overflow very smoothly while building our own profile greatly. Bitcoin wants Lightning Network for scaling, we could use it to have easier accessibility to Bitcoin users and payment processors and retailers. All bitcoin's successes could become partly ours as well. There's no sense in refighting every battle bitcoin has already fought when we could use lightning atomic swaps to reach everyone they can reach instantly.

[Serious, long] My thoughts on what next for Dogecoin

There’s been a lot of discussion in recent days about the decreasing price of Dogecoin, as well as the risk of a 51% attack from Wafflepool or similar. I wanted to do a wrap-up of the discussions happening amongst the developers of the last few weeks, partly to illustrate that we are looking at options, but mostly to talk about what is happening. Please note that this is all rapidly changing. Dogecoin is actually moving at breakneck speed for a project of its size, especially as we still have a relatively limited core team. This is part of why we don’t write posts very often, as they become out of date so quickly as new arguments and facts are presented.
Lets talk about 51% attacks first. The theory is that if anyone has over 51% of the total hashing power of the network, they can form a blockchain of their own which is considered “more valid” than the blockchain most users are on. This is because cryptocurrency blockchains are secured through proof of work, and therefore more work on a chain makes it, in essence, more valid. This risks an attacker spending coins on one chain, then releasing their own private, longer, blockchain. That latter blockchain replaces the original blockchain, and the coins they spent on the original blockchain are effectively returned to them as if the transactions never happened.
It’s important to understand this because I hear suggestions that Wafflepool shouldn’t accept over 51% of the network hashrate, and unfortunately all this would do is hide the risk. Having one pool own over 51% of the network hashrate is not a problem if it’s actually being used to mine, but instead if it’s used to create a personal blockchain. The other issue raised is one of price; we’ve been steadily dropping since around early February. The core of my answers here is that you need to consider demand vs supply. What happened back in February was that we saw a surge in demand beyond sustainable levels, likely in a form of tulip mania. As supply continued (mining), and demand dropped-off, our price has dropped. This has been worsened by a succession of bad news affecting Bitcoin (MtGox and other exchanges struggling, uncertainty of China and Russia, etc.), which both directly brings down our price, as well as undermining confidence in the entire cryptocurrency ecosystem. It has been suggested (and I can believe this, but have not done my own analysis) that as multipools continue to dominate Dogecoin mining, and they tend to sell coins directly, that they are further reducing the price. Specifically, given that while there is demand for further coins from miners, as they have already expended resources on mining hardware they cannot then purchase the cheap coins the mining pools are producing.
Lastly, there’s the question of ASICs; these are specialised mining devices which are significantly faster than CPU/GPU mining hardware, and typically cheaper to run due to reduced power and space requirements. Their introduction into mining at the moment leaves vastly disproportionate mining power in the hands of a few (there’s one individual with a hashrate of around 20GH/s, for example), and in time is likely to make mining on commodity hardware infeasible.
We’ve had a lot of suggestions for what to do; change proof of work algorithm, add multiple proof of work algorithms, move to proof of stake, merge-mine with Litecoin, have DigiShield merge-mine with us. We’ve considered everything, and then some; I’m not sure how much discussion has happened in total, but I’ve spent over a dozen hours looking at these issues on IRC. In virtually all cases, the majority of people with the skills to implement these changes have rejected them as too high risk and/or having other significant drawbacks. In summary:
The best suggestion we have so far is to out-do the multipools directly, by working on open source multipool software which is more DOGE-friendly. As I understand it two key approaches are being considered for improving DOGE-friendliness; either by directly exchanging other coins to DOGE, or through improved trading algorithms which result in less sharp shocks to the price. For very large mining farms such as SFire’s, it’s hoped this will cause them to separate from the mining pools (which they pay fees to) and go solo. This reduces fees for the miner, as well as reducing the ability for DDoS attacks to be targeted at them, and for us it reduces risk of a 51% attack, improves confidence in the coin security, and enables us to better mitigate impact of people mining huge quantities to sell.
Meanwhile, the main focus is on making Dogecoin (and cryptocurrencies in general) a viable way of moving value around. The 1.7 client (beta release is imminent, and in fact if you’re comfortable compiling it yourself, the code is available from https://github.com/dogecoin/dogecoin/tree/v1.7.0-Beta-1 ) is a major re-write of Dogecoin Core to base it on the Bitcoin Core 0.9 client (with Scrypt added in, of course). This gives us significant performance improvements, as well as a better underlying architecture. To repeat; this will not be a required update, although it will be strongly encouraged as it’s a huge leap forward technologically. One of the features which is currently not working in 1.7, but will be for release, is the Bitcoin payment protocol, which massively improves the payment request/receiving process for merchants. Fundamentally 1.7 is intended to prove we have the technical skills to maintain a stable, useful coin, and help drive/support adoption.
Once 1.7 is done, my immediate priority is technical documentation; we have a security specialist currently working on a guide to cryptocurrency security (setup, risks, best practices, etc.), to help give merchants and exchanges an in-depth understanding of how to securely use cryptocurrency. I’ll be addressing the need for formal standards in Dogecoin, and preparing RFCs for the “dogecoin:” URI and relay network protocol for submission to the IETF (and IANA for the URI).
Lastly; there was a post recently about the need for multi-signature addresses; I’d like to add my own “hell yes!” to that, although obviously I have to prioritise. If anyone else can look at these, that would be fantastic.
For anyone wanting a more permanent link, there's a copy of this on my blog ( http://jrn.me.uk/wp/what-next-for-dogecoin-mid-april-2014/ ), however posting as full text here as probably easier for most people, and I'm not sure my server would survive a reddit hug!
Edit: It's been pointed out that there's no verification of the problems with Blackcoin, and the source alleging problems has a serious credibility issue. Have removed the reference now.

We will host the AMA for about 2 hours, we can go longer if needed.
Why use DigiByte?
1) Speed: DigiByte is Blazing fast! Much faster than Bitcoin & Litecoin, and fast enough to buy coffee from a merchant in just a few seconds with the press of a button on a smart phone!
2) Transactional Currency: With 21 billion coins, DigiByte will primarily become a worldwide currency traded for goods & services and not a volatile speculative commodity like Bitcoin. DigiByte has a natural ratio of 1BTC:1000DGB to Bitcoin. This means that if Bitcoin is worth $1,000 DigiByte should be worth $1 -$10. A Perfect price for buying goods & services. No one likes to look in their wallet and see that they have 0.001 coins; 1,000 DigiBytes are much more appealing.
3) DigiByte Name: You store data in megabytes & gigabytes. Why not store money in DigiBytes?

List of solutions we have against ASICs and 51% attacks. Which do you think is best?

  1. Merge Mining An brought up by the creator of Litecoin, one of the Doge devs brought up the idea of merge mining with Digibyte. Merged mining allows a miner to mine for more than one block chain at the same time. The benefit is that every hash the miner does contributes to the total hash rate of both (all) currencies, and as a result they are all more secure. You can learn more here
Pros: Potential of 51% attack decreases. Both communities are linked leading to a larger community. Low risk as merge mining has been successfully tried before. Increase hashing power. Miners would get both Litecoin/Digibyte and Doge when mining.
Cons: High likelihood that Litecoin or Digibyte miners will dump their Doge and vice versa. Still susceptible to a 51% attack by a large ASIC scrypt farm. All risk lies on Doge and not Litecoin when implementing the required fork.
  1. Change to Scrypt-N algorithm. Current coin used by Vertcoin you can read more about it here...ok you can in all seriousness look more into it here or here
Pros: Potential of 51% attack decreases. Benefits GPU miners (significant portion of the Doge community is made up of GPU miners).
Cons: Short term solution. Scrypt-n ASICs will probably be developed in the future leading us to where we are now. Scrypt-n can also damage GPU over time.
  1. Change to SHA-256 algorithm. SHA-256 is the mining algorithm that Bitcoin uses. Not much to say here.
Pros: Potential of 51% attack significantly decreases.
Cons: Little innovation. GPU miners can no longer mine Doge.
  1. Change Doge from pure PoW (proof of work) to PoW/PoS hybrid. Coins like Peercoin, Mintcoin and Blackcoin follow this system. You can learn a little more about the how the system works here or here
Pros: Attacker would need 51% of all Dogecoins to do a 51% attack. Significantly energy efficient. GPU mining is no longer necessary. Dogecoin owners will gain coins simply by leaving them in their wallet;.
Cons: Changing from pure PoW to PoW/PoS has (to my knowledge) never been tried before. Can encourage hoarding.
  1. Change to X11 algorithm. This algorithm was brought up in the comments. I don't know much about it but it is very interesting! I'm currently reading up on it here, here and in /hirocoin
Pros: Potential 51% attack decreases. Energy efficient. Lower GPU temperature for miners. More fair to laptop miners and people with lower end tech.
Cons: Risk in switching from Scypt to X11 as its never been done before. Higher risk of 51% attack by a botnet.
  1. Change to Multi-Algo algorithm. Also brought up in the comments. Multi-Algo uses SHA-256, Scrypt, Groestl, Skein and Qubit as one algorithm. In use by Myriadcoin. You can read more on it here and in /myriadcoin.
Pros: Potential of 51% attack significantly decreases (I don't even know if its possible).
Cons: Risk in switching from Scrypt to Multi-Algo as its never been done before.
  1. Change to HVC algorithm. Brought up in the comments. Similar to Multi-Algo in that it has multiple algorithms in one. Currently used by Heavycoin. You can read more here
Pros: Potential of 51% attack significantly decreases (Just like Multi-Algo, I am not sure if its even possible). More secure.
Cons: Risk in switching from Scrypt to HVC as its never been done before.
If you have any more solutions please let me know. If there is something you want to add to a con or pro or a correction let me know as well. I would like this post to drum up discussion. Thank you for participating.

A New York Coin Development Vision: How BTC could be 'powered by NYC' via Lightning Network

Preface
Lightning network offers slow congested chains, like Bitcoin, some scaling relief, so it's become known as a scaling solution. It may end up becoming far more famous as the best supported atomic swap technology to come into being. A big chain like Bitcoin has little incentive to help its users move to smaller faster chains smoothly, so Lightning is almost a trojan horse that can dramatically improve accessibility of all altcoins that also implement lightning networks.
Atomic swaps will let you trade from one chain, say bitcoin, to another with lightning network, let's say litecoin, without using any centralized repository like an exchange full of arbitrary rules and limits and fees that capture your money in their insecure coffers that are a big centralized target for hackers. But atomic swaps won't always be just a less frustrating way to move between chains, as they streamline, they'll transform the way we think about chains and shrink the space between them.
Imagine pre-exchange crypto as pre oceanic shipping earth. Different chains might as well be different continents, only occasionally connected by land bridges. Then came sailing (exchanges). You could move back and forth, but it was slow, restrictive and expensive, and sunken ships took a lot of gold to the bottom of the ocean (mt.gox, nicehack). Imagine atomic swaps, be they Lightning network swaps or some other solution like blocksnet or barterdex, as mail and parcel delivery by air and rail, time and costs shrink again.
My vision is of a later version of Lightning network that's basically the internet itself. You don't even need to package your letter, you can communicate right to the computer in someone's pocket a world away. The ease of moving between chains will increase dramatically, and the first chain to position to take advantage of that, to not merely be exchanged through swaps, but to power another chain using them, will prosper enormously.
Vision
Once upon a time around the late '90s or early '00s, there was dominate search directory called Yahoo!, recently defunct, that was most people's first stop when looking for new websites. Yahoo! decided to outsource their site's search engine to an unknown little company named Google, and many people's first experience with Google in those days was a little tagline by the Yahoo! search box that read: 'powered by Google'. In just a few years, everyone's first stop to the internet was Google itself. Powering Yahoo! was Google's platform to a direct connection with web users, and they used that platform to take over the world.
New York Coin can power Bitcoin with the same intent, using an ever more streamlined Lightning Network, and essentially operating as a lightning network and scaling solution for Bitcoin by pitching to payment processors and large retailers to move their received bitcoin transactions through lightning channels out onto the NYC chain. Rather than off chain transactions that traditional LN scaling offers, we'd be offering cross chain transactions that retain the benefits of the public ledger. Off bitcoin's chain, on ours.
As payment processors and retailers began to use us, our accessibility and visibility to ordinary users would grow just as Google's did, as those payment processors would already be primed and ready to receive NYC directly, rather than trading to it only in the background. The whole vision dovetails nicely with NYC's local penetration as well, as you can ask local retailers whether they want to accept BTC at great cost and slow speed, or cut out the middle man and use the coin that powers the fastest BTC transactions directly: NYC.
The vision also works with NYC's branding. The way New York City powers the world's economy, New York Coin can power the world's blockchains. A nimble, low maintenance blockchain like NYC can take BTC's overflow and fee avoidance traffic and use it to grow into a serious competitor in its own right.
Step 1 We probably need to deal with NYC coin supply issues. First bitcointalk thread says max supply = 10B, first github says it's 100B, and current supply according to website is 130+B, so something is amiss. A fork has already been imagined to deal with this, and it's probably an important step.
Step 2 Segwit and Lightning. I would personally donate 50,000NYC to a credible developer who could update NYC to support the lightning network, test it on a testnet and implement it as Lightning develops further. I know that isn't much, but I'll also do all I can to encourage others to donate and I expect the value of NYC to rise greatly not merely on implementing the tech, but doing so with a vision of how to use it, so a dev that hodls could do quite well.
As long as we'd be getting segwit addresses and need a new prefix, may I recommend 'NYC' as the prefix instead of 'R'? It's an opportunity to extend the branding.
Step 3 Support as many decentralized exchanges as possible. I know blocksnet requires OP_CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY and I don't know if NYC has that. I don't know what Barterdex will require. These solutions seem to require using a 3rd blockchain as intermediary, which is not ideal, but right now NYC can build a brand of accessibility while waiting for Lightning Network to develop into a more universal atomic swap option, and early adopters at the new decentralized exchanges can build brand awareness by showing up before there are too many coins there.
Step 4 Increase NYC security. We'll get more miner simply by having some success and growing in price, but you want to be at the top of your algorithm or else you are vulnerable to attack. One tiny litecoin pool could 51% attack NYC right now, and fairly recently Bitconnect coin on Scrypt was successfully attacked on scrypt while it held an enormous hashrate, so only the top dog per algorithm is secure if you only use one algorithm. Digibyte has a 5 algorithm solution that requires 51% of 4, and 93% of a 5th in order to pull off the same attack, and so they're able to get a lot more security per hash than most coins.
If payment processors, large retailers, maybe even banks are going to rely on us, we can't get taken down by attacks like that. We should seriously consider importing digibyte's multi algoritm security.
Step 5 Be an early leader in Bitcoin fee avoidance. People already avoid fees by moving to litecoin in exchanges, sending litecoin to new location and then sometimes even converting back to bitcoin. Early lightning network won't be much less inconvenient than exchanges are now, but the more we brand NYC as a faster alternative, and to avoid fees in between various stops, the easier it is to position it once moving from one chain to another is more like changing lanes on the interstate than parking at an airport getting on a plane and flying over an ocean.
We should also invest as much as possible, in the far future (late 2018, 2019) in helping to smooth out how easily lightning channels let users go back and forth between congested chains like BTC and NYC.
Conclusion
I've pitched this before, to Digibyte, both because they're a fast nimble chain, and because of their 5 algorithm security. But they want to do digusign and Internet of Things. NYC seems like a coin in need of a long term mission, and I believe acting as Bitcoin's backbone can provide that purpose while complementing NYC's more short term goals of local New York adoption. Given New York City's status as backbone of the world financial system, NYC's branding is compatible with being Bitcoin's backbone.
So I offer this vision to you. I'm willing to donate to a credible developer who shares this vision and seems capable of implementing segwit and lightning, I'm also willing to try to persuade other users to donate as well and help them understand the importance, for whatever that's worth. I don't really expect you guys to adopt this, or probably even read my wall of text, but I wanted to take a shot. I've encouraged others to contribute as they can, and this idea is the most valuable contribution I can make. It's a good idea and someone is going to do it. Might as well be us.
TL;DR As lightning network develops and atomic swaps get smoother, it could become smooth enough so that one chain like NYC could power another slower more congested chain like Bitcoin, and we could grab their overflow very smoothly while building our own profile greatly. Bitcoin wants Lightning Network for scaling, we could use it to have easier accessibility to Bitcoin users and payment processors and retailers. All bitcoin's successes could become partly ours as well. There's no sense in refighting every battle bitcoin has already fought when we could use lightning atomic swaps to reach everyone they can reach instantly.
Update: Segwit/lightning have been added to the NY Coin roadmap here: https://nycoin.community/roadmap.html
Donations: Over 3 million NYC has been donated to NYC's development team to help support the implementation of Segwit/lightning. See the donation thread here: https://www.reddit.com/NewYorkCoin/comments/7z256p/donation_address_for_segwit_bounty/

Digibyte & Cardano Talk With Crypto Currently And Bitcoin Price Predictions! #Podcast 63 DigiByte Bullrun Ready as Bitcoin Halving Nears We Discuss BTC And DGB LET'S TALK ABOUT THE BITCOIN HALVING!! REAL TALK.. BITCOIN, LITECOIN, ETHEREUM, DIGIBYTE UPDATE!! Bitcoin (BTC), Vechain (VET), Digibyte (DGB), Ethereum ... DigiTalk #4 - DigiByte 6.16.5 and the Bitcoin transaction bug

Digibyte – Was steckt hinter dem Altcoin? Nachdem Kryptowährungen in der Vergangenheit doch eher ein Schattendasein geführt haben, steigt das Interesse an Bitcoin, Ethereum und Co seit einigen Jahren deutlich an.. Dies hat dazu geführt, dass immer neue Coins das Licht der Welt erblickt haben. Compared to 21 million Bitcoin, 21 billion DigiByte (1000:1 ratio to BTC) have been designed to be ready for mass adoption. DigiByte block rewards reduces by 1% every month instead of halving every 4 years. All 21 billion DigiByte will be mined by the year 2035. After 2035 the miners will then rely on transaction fees alone. Learn more. Quick picks from the DigiByte Ecosystem. All exchanges ... DigiByte-Kurs für heute ist $0,02155306 mit einem 24-stündigen Handelsvolumen von $7.032.673. DGB-Kurs ist um 0.6% gestiegen in den letzten 24 Stunden.Es gibt derzeit eine Gesamtanzahl von 14 Milliarden Kryptowährungen und eine maximale Anzahl von 21 Milliarden Kryptowährungen.Binance ist der Markt mit dem aktuell aktivsten Handel. The DigiByte blockchain was developed in 2013 and released in January 2014 by Jared Tate (Creator & Founder of DigiByte) with an open-source protocol. Although based on Bitcoin, adjustments in the code allow for improved functionality, including 15-second block time, real-time difficulty adjustment and improved security. DGB war dabei mit Abstand der größte Gewinner und konnte im Vergleich mit Bitcoin sagenhafte 87,2% auf 204 Satoshis zulegen. Bereits in der letzten Woche konnte DGB punkten. Cardano profitiert von seiner Hochstufung im Weiss Technologieranking und legt +18,0% auf 590 Satoshis zu.. Stellar performte in der letzten Woche eher schwach, hat sich aber jetzt wieder deutlich erholt.
