News from dev Igotspots regarding the future of “balls”

IGotSpots

 

Quoted from dev Igotspots, regarding balls on 2/17/15:

There is a sea of garabge which must be waded through daily. Why pick one coin over another? At this stage of the game, it’s a crap shoot. What many people consider the end game, mass adoption, as the ultimate goal, there is a growing number of investors that see the negatives of such exposure. Let’s use a company like Overstock. Now I know they just started offering employees salary in Bitcoin, which is exactly what needs to be done. Accepting Bitcoin as payment is a good thing, don’t get me wrong, but when large corporations simply take these profits and dump to fiat to pay employees, bills, and taxes, they start doing more harm than good. There are enough people focused on merchant and mass adoption. It’s a saturated market that only a few will thrive in. This is a very important step for the community as a whole or there will never be new cash flow into cryptos. I am not anti-adoption, but that is not the only channel for profit. This is where high staking chains come into play

While others grind to be the top merchant token, there is a new wave of coins, such as MMXIV, BALLS, and 10k, that aim to be a hedge against flailing Bitcoin prices. While Bitcoin struggles to find a true price, our coins have held steady. Even in a falling market, high stake combats the falling per coin price. Every day staking increases your personal holdings of the entire network by percentage. Network inflation will NEVER be higher than personal staking gains. Which brings me back to the original point. What to do with BALLS. The staking protocol switch obviously did not go over well. So do we ignore the problem and move on? Definitely not. Very soon we will be doing a coin swap for BALLS to a new chain. It will be a 1:1 swap on a reputable exchange (TBD where). The reason for not forking the current chain is simple; the changes are far too drastic and won’t work well with what we already have

Blocks will be extremely fast. I’ve already proven with MMXIV and 10k that these chains are both quick and unattackable. BALLS needs to be brought up to the same level of speed and security as the other two. So for that reason, there will be drastic changes to the fundamentals of the coin. I have for a while wanted to do a coin with random stake percentages each block. Like all other randomness in coins, this would have been built on a system using previous hash seeds, making it predictable and pseudorandom at best. Stake modifiers already proved shitty with BALLS, so what’s next? I’m not telling you yet

I will say the way we are doing stake has not been done before. It is the same basic system as many others, but instead of using personal stake modifiers, we will be adjusting the stake percentage on the fly for the network as a whole. The waves used in BALLS earlier proved extremely popular, so we are currently working on our own algorithm that will give rewards enough of an oscillating median to stay interesting. Our system will not pretend to be random when it is not, thus predictable if you really want to put the time in to math it out, stock up stake weight, and pray you hit that block, but I feel it will be more interesting than the previous hash seeded pseudorandom systems, that have been advertising themselves as truly random, already fucking up other coins

No ETA, yet, and all GorillaStake addresses will be on hold until the new fork is out, but I just wanted to let you guys know that I have a) not forgotten about you, or b) given up and moved on. I am the top address on all three Rich Lists and have more in smaller stacks I use for testing. I have not dumped; these drops are not me. I will lose much more than anyone else if these coins fail. I have more money invested in them than any of you do and I do not hand out my dollars easily. There is a reason I now only invest in coins that I am working on. I don’t trust others to make me profit, so I can’t blame you for not trusting me to have your best interest in mind, which I certainly do. If you guys don’t make money, neither do I

Bitbean (BITB) IS the new hotcoin.

Bitbean is all the rage right now, its very new, and is at the top of the charts on Bittrex. It still mineable using sha-256, however pow is near over.

Here are the vitals:

Launched 11:00 PM UTC Friday, February 13, 2015

Algo: SHA-256

Windows wallet: https://mega.co.nz/#!2QdwDa6b!D9J1n2r0qSEwrk99MqBYq82tWpjSGYc-_4QCee1keEA

Mining Pools:
Ipominer
Minerpools

Pow info: 10,000 blocks containing 100,000 coins each (YES, 100,000 coins PER BLOCK!!)

POS Info: (Innovative/New style of Proof of Stake:)
Its Proof of Stake is different from other coins. In addition to only giving all coins that have over 6 hours age only 6 hours of age in the PoS calculations, the blocks which are found are static blocks similar to PoW. Each PoS block is 1000 coins.
This is a much better form of proof of stake than giving % interest.
Coins are supposed to be a payment system. Bitbean’s PoS encourages people to actually process transactions instead of hoarding their coins and only process a transaction once in a blue moon to only collect their interest which is not a good method for making a payment system.

Ticker symbol: (BITB)

Exchanges: https://www.bittrex.com/Market/Index?MarketName=BTC-BITB

Misc notes: It just hit Bittrex today and already is at the top and has 19BTC in volume trading in less than 24 hours!

The decline of Hyperstake. What REALLY happend?

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousands words. The chart below will help you quickly understand why 750% interest is really only good for a short time, a VERY short time. At one point Hyperstake was creating 1 million HYP PER DAY!!! Holy Hyperinflation!!

Important note: This article is not intended to hurt Hyperstake coin or its holders or developers. Its to help the cryptocurrency community better manage high POS coins. In all fairness, when Hyperstake was released in July 2014, it was unique and like nothing else out there, and NOBODY knew what would happen, and many of us didnt take inflation seriously. We later learned its one of the top factors in determining a coins price. So the article really is about all high pos coins. I only used HYP because it has the longest history. Presstab is an amazing developer and the best there is. Hopefully we all learned from the Hyperstake experience.
