Hello, friend. I guess the notice you put up in the Chinese division is google translated. A shame that I didn't do it myself. Hah
Actually, that brings up a good point.
I don't suppose it would be too much to ask for people using machine translation to also include an untranslated copy of their post? Machine translation is imperfect, moreso on some translations than others, and this would allow the reader to double-check the translation in the event that (like me) they know enough of the original language to get the gist even without being fluent.
Oh, yes! Automated translation is frightening!
That's a good point! A link to the original will also work. People who don't know the original language will not be disturbed and people who are not satisfied can contribute to make it better.
I don't remember which language it was, but at one point there was one language on Google Translate that would actually reverse the meaning of a phrase translated into it. ("not"s were added or removed in inappropriate ways)
Today airdrop sign-up statistics will be made public (100 %) and testnet will launch within this week (99.9%) ..... adrenaline is increasing at fast levels.
An airdrop rundown is absolutely being posted today. It'll be in the Announcements section.
Can't wait! This is a big step!
That's great news, thanks for the update guys
And none too soon. Apparently Zcash must be quite worried, as they jumped ahead in their schedule
Thanks for the hard work and effort you have all put forth, and look forward to prospering with you all. One step closer to success.
Haha, never heard of Zcash. I wonder why they got an article in Wired, might be worth pursuing. Decentralization is a big issue with Bitcoin, after all.
Also, Zcash is a really annoying name.
I saw them pitched on CCN, but checking their website revealed *all* they have currently is the anonymizing system, which they just open-sourced.
Bold strategic move. Not wise, but bold.
It was zerocoin, now zerocash,Zcash for short, I think. I was just checking on what was happening around ,and found a link to there homepage and checked it out.
I found it a while back. They were talking in their forum about Decred, and seemed pretty worried imo. Things like. "What are we gonna do about Decred? They're almost ready to launch and we still have six months to go"
That is not an exact quote, but something close. They do, admittedly, have nice features on the coin, but their backers have a less than stellar history, in the eyes of John Q. Public, thanks to the media. It will make things much more difficult to achieve " mainstream" acceptance. Zcash opted for money now from whoever they could get it from, rather than maintain integrity. Also, in case you didn't read through the whole thing, or if it was in a different article than the link I posted, Zcash plans on taxing the currency at a rate of 11% to reimburse the team, etc,
That definitely will not boost desire for it.
Decred has been professional on all levels, and always maintained integrity, and that's probably THE most important thing.
Nice anonymity, yes, but WOW that tax. My jaw literally dropped. 11% is just a mind-numbingly dumb idea. Maybe they're just banking on darknet markets using it, tolerating the tax for the anonymity. Either way, that high of a tax is probably a deal breaker for most people.
My sentiments exactly.
The decision to make that move, which(pure speculation here, no basis of fact known to me) was most likely the brainchild of Barry Silbert, and company. No particular reason for his name, just the one I remembered along with Ulbricht.
And I don't believe the latter will be much benefit having his name tied to the coin, either
Being worried about other cryptocoins pretty much turns me off of them completely. Capitalism is not a zero-sum game. What benefits one person benefits everyone.(And if it doesn't benefit everyone, then it doesn't benefit anyone.)
Decred supporters should not think of other coins as "rivals." They are other economies which can benefit and grow alongside this one.
