@falconCoin hey it's my weekend I have no problem staying up and watching Burst (This is my life now... but I love it!)
@mr.x I think having more in the market will have a healthier effect on the price than most other things. with Falcon's market place and others offering items for burst I only seeing things getting better.
I love the term "shit coin". As if there is something tangible to all of this. I'm not a crypto expert... but you know what the biggest "shit coin" I've ever owned and used? Freaking can be looong delays to confirm, scammers and unsavory people surrounding it, hackers, wild fluctuations in price... it's something called Bitcoin. I guess that and it's 35 billion market cap make it the #1 "shit coin".
People need to step out of their world view every now and then. Imo... 99% of new money coming into crypto aren't coders, computer experts, people spending time reading white papers.... nor even looking for it to be a currency they can walk to the local drug store and use. They're looking at it as an investment, and store of value (short or long term), and that it's reliable (but necessarily lightning fast). You can't touch, feel, smell blockchain technology and I just think most people are seeing the foundation of most of these coins as similar.
Just my opinion, but I also think the AE tends to get overrated by some on here. I like it, it's important, and it will certainly play a part but if BURST gets huge it will not be the lead driving supply and demand.
On a slightly different topic. Can someone tell me how the AE on NXT has held up through significant growth? Does NEM have an AE?
@whateverUsayman : their website is stating these API's are only used to trade and the API cannot withdraw funds.
I have not used their services however, since the fact you have to pay for everything with bitcoin (no fiat options) is a showstopper for me.
was in my hometown all weekend wile this was going on ... i missed out riding the wave ... thou i did spend a fair amount of time in MicroCenter yesterday :) should see a small boost in my mining rewards in a few days
Just because Burst has more volume short term does not reflect long term potential. Many of the delisted coins had large amounts of value. BTM NXC OMNI BCY EMC2 RADS EXP FLDC NAUT are all big connected projects and not going away anytime soon. That leaves HUC NOTE XVC RIC FLO GRC XBC PINK XPM NEOS NMC BLK VER VIA BELA, 15 coins, lets say those 15 are the next delisted, because they are both 1) lower volume, and 2) arguably less advanced. Then there are just 9 coins left in that list with us, so 2 delists away. Its scary to think about but we were much safer 3 delists ago when there were like 50 coins definitely below us. 14 were just cut, we are in the bottom 25. There are many many new Etherum coins out there that will get listed, and will probably. I do not want to or enjoy being the devils advocate, but there needs to be some awareness of where we fit in to all of this. Many of the delistings that took place happened to make server room to support XRP, which has 7 BILLION in market cap, and crashed their entire website on April 1. They went down again when Stellar Lumens moved 400 MIL, and only moved less volume because the site crashed. They will cut the smaller coins if they think it will give them a greater chance of uptime when XRP ETH LTC ZEC XEM XMR or any big coin will be moving. We will definitely not be delisted tomorrow, but every altcoin cannot be around forever. We need to have a detailed plan for what will happen at the end of Q3 2017, Q1 of 2018, Q2 of 2018, Q3 of 2018, Q4 of 2018. If we do not have that we will not be around to start Q1 of 2019 because we will be passed off as going nowhere sometime in the middle of 2018. We need to look towards the long term future, and not at short term gains.
@PeterSkrzyniarz Or use localbitcoins.com but make sure to choose someone with a good reputation to trade with, there are some scammers in there, specially in gift cards and such ;D
I traded one time with one guy from my country for a bank transfer and all went well aswell as being pretty fast and actually i catched an offer where i was payed even a little more than what poloniex said my btc was worthed at that time... Good luck with it ;P
