Re: Nicehash allowing block withholding and 51% attacks through its services

So, the problem is with nicehash, but they are not going to stop it because they make money off of it. Assume they fess up, admit its all on them and they allow it and they have no plans to stop it. Before the CEO stepped down after the hack in 2017 it was a Slovenia-run business. I am not sure who...

Re: Nicehash allowing block withholding and 51% attacks through its services

So a bank lets a person take out a loan. They use the money from the loan to do bad things. And you want to blame the bank who lent them the money. Nicehash is a business. They provide a service, cloudmining, what the people do with that should not be held against that company--I am SOO not a fan o...

Re: Interested in other assets?

I would really love to see XLM or Stellar added to the payout list for sure!!! That's great, and we have plans to add those, but that's not the question I asked. I'm referring to third-level coins, where distributed apps create and trade assets that represent probabilities or real-world assets like...

Nicehash allowing block withholding and 51% attacks through its services

Whenever a bug has occurred over the past few years, it seems as if it always involves Nicehash rentals in some way or another. Until now, however, we never had any convincing evidence that Nicehash was negligent in any of these issues. Today, I'm finally able to detail a number of areas in which Ni...

Interested in other assets?

I wanted to gauge payout interest in third layer assets like the Augur prediction market. After Vance has added the remaining six top 20 coins, is anyone interested in being paid in items that represent other assets? For example, it should be possible to earn shares of "Andrew Yang wins the 202...

Status as of Friday, March 22, 2019

Good morning! ⋅  We're ready to talk more about what occurred with Nicehash. I'll be writing a more detailed post later today in a different thread. ⋅  Vance is happy to announce that he just completed NEM integration, and that NEM is currently downloading its blocks. Once its bl...

Re: Software upate service

That's a great idea. But doesn't it provide those as a string, and since every daemon has a different string, there's no way to easily compare them?

Re: Bitcoin Question

Bitcoin does not pay dividends But when you sell your bitcoins and turn them into fiat currency, it could trigger a dividends like sell short/long term capital gains event. Depending on which country you live in you would then be responsible for paying the taxes on the money you get when you sell t...

Re: List of Cryptonight (ASIC) coins for olkah.

The problem with Cryptonight is that it requires a lot of effort to get the coins operating. For example, Electroneum can only be used with manual payouts because it corrupts its wallet sending transactions. Bytecoin is the anchor coin for CryptonightV1 but has a different block template format I ne...
