@haitch the message saying under maintenance should be there for sure...
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?
Great to hear. Despite everything I actually think the coin is in a good spot and still has big upside.
I hope the team.us side can come up with marketer of our own... a more professional Adam if you will.
I also think everyone should be diligent in spreading the message that Adam is not BURST, etc. He is one man in the community. The sad part is, he actually has some good ideas... but the selfishness and greed unfortunately win out.
I think most (all?) on here know what Adam (and therefore Focus) represents and what he's doing. And MANY saw it months ago prior to BN. So the current sh!t storm is partially due to the fact many Devs agreed to partner/work with Adam... and as far as I can tell a "partnership" poorly conceived and defined.
I'll reserve final judgment until the announcement... but if it is a hard fork creating a new coin I will be BEYOND pissed off. That's not how you complete with BN and move forward past a situation the Devs helped create themselves. I'll leave it at that for now... but I sincerely hope this is not the case.
This is less of a scam than MTM gaming in my opinion lol.
And yes, I'm serious.
@burst1 Im no Insider to the dev Team so cannot provide any Information about that Topic. As an Investor I would like to see a more professional Team. Everyone who gets more into that Topic sees more of phuck.
As an Investor I would like to see the community - devs and investors talking about the real stuff, and there is plenty of stuff to talk about:
Android Wallets, remember there is dunno 2 Billion Androids out there just the mobiles. AE - dead. Crowdfund Feature, doesnt load at all and so on.
Blockchain Problems, pools getting raided, ddosing each other.
But all I see is fraud. People blocking their assets by buying at 1 and selling at two. People misusing their escrow Held Money. The same People that already crashed another coin qora to name it. The Casino mug.
I found Burstcoin and liked it for the idea the way its mining, great potential.
I dug deeper and found a Freak Show.
The fraud you speak about is one or two people currently. I think it's important to point that out. There are thousands of good people associated with BURST. Certainly the time you joined was the height of confusion though.
@burst1 If you would read what I am talking about then youd know thats it not about a snapshot of the current market cap but the coin to be a top 50 used in the future, and thats what im seriously doubting.
Market Cap currently is 15 or 20 Million $ who cares- and to be fair thats Micky Mouse Money no matter how youd look at it worldwide while plenty of other coins doing half/ Billions in the meantime offering much more.
Market Cap has been around 1$ Million or less for a loong time during the last 3 years since the coin was introduced, I could raise that if Id really want to, not by myself of course. Donald Duck.
Dev Team is struggling left right and center and fighting each others. Pools overtaking, DDos, mugs, Neonazis, Gamblers and Romanians running the Show. (Sorry for that, Vlad the Impaler was a great guy of yours imo..)
Imagine a new Investor coming willing to Invest lets say 1 Million $. Lol
I understand the current situation... with the current drama, not exactly a high point for BURST. I'm hopeful both sides move on and keep plugging away... things tend to get heated, crescendo and die down. What is the Dev team struggling with btw... info you can share?
How many cryptos are Mickey Mouse money (as you said)? Dodgecoin started as a complete joke, it has an unlimited supply... it has also exceed a 400 million dollar market cap and is firmly a top 15 crypto coin. BURST is based on NXT (a top 50 coin)... BURST can't have similar results? Could give many other examples...
We'll agree to disagree I guess. But if you don't think BURST has some solid potential not sure why you're wasting your time here?
There is /has been early tries and assets out there to secure BURST (mining/investing/assets etc) against Price changes rise or fall BURST against the $ for example with the silver asset. Basically buying Hardware to mine BURST then using that BURSTs to buy Silver.
Just to state I dont know anything about silver or any commodieties and also dont hold a single share in the silver asset currently, just wanted to give an example.
There is other tries I see to get out of the currency of BURST, because just to be honest who really believes BURST will make it to the top?
There is maybe a 1- more likely 0,001% Chance that BURST will make it to the top 50 coins used one day, so People have to think about what to make with their BURST, as they are currently:
. easy and cheap to mine
.but to no real use in the real world, any other than convert it to other coins and/or fiat
. only usable to gamble them on the phat phucks Casino for the sake of it or to use it for the AE to fund People mining more coins which will be used to be converted into other coins and/or fiat or gambled on the phat phucks Casino ad infinitum, u see the Point.
On a side note, I see that the gipsy without a Name hired and promoting Lexicon as a Trader?
I think thats the wrong place for him, he should be doing 18-19/7 what hes good at doing and commited to - which is coding, at least thats how I understood it.
There is enough mug Gamblers/Traders out there already for a cheaper Price available than him and not enough coders bringing the BURST developing to new highs.
Hes already talking about heart attacks he feels because of overworking, and adding another Task to his schedule..?
I understand that hes Lex is interested in some new Investments in his pool/asset by the Gipsy w/o Name to get started again, not sure if his day suddenly got 48 hours instead of 24 though.
But then again, what do i know..
1- more likely 0,001% for BURST to be in the top 50 of cryptos?
Not sure about that since it's already appeared in the top 50 based on market value.
Idk @Lexicon ... I feel for you. I just hope you stand up for yourself appropriately.
In no way to support Adam/Focus ...but just looking at the big picture. It was agreed upon that Focus was running/in control of the mobile pool right? And I have no idea how you guys had things structured (partnership agreements, etc)... but just as though you guys are working to lock down your pools etc separating from Nation... maybe Focus sees the mobile pool similarly as it is/was his responsibility? Obviously if he's just liquidating BURST and putting it in his pocket he's stealing and that's UNACCEPTABLE ... but there's always another side of the coin (no pun intended)?
Seems like a mess... I just hope everything can be separated and both sides move on.
