I was thinking about investing in Ethereum but I couldn't be bothered, although I'm pretty disappointed that I didn't buy BTC while it was in the 300ish range.

2. I'm up over $10,000 now Prices change cause me heart attacks in the morning so I wrote this to wake me up in case of sudden price changes. Simba Code: program New;var S: String;constwarningprice ='0.0124284';function Get: String;begin S := GetPage('https://api.coinmarketcap.com/v1/ticker/siacoin/'); S := Between('price_usd": "', '", ', S); Result := S;end;procedure loop;begin WriteLn(Get); if S < warningprice then PlaySound('C:\Alert\krs.wav')end;beginrepeatcleardebug;loop;wait(10000);until falseend. 3. wth had no clue you could use larger/lesser than operator for strings :O @Kave; 4.

But for numbers that have different length, you need to pad the smallest number with 0s to work '009' < '100'. The best thing is to just convert it to a float pre-comparison to be safe.

An acquaintance that owns a bitcoin casino made well over a million dollars in May from bitcoin influxuation alone. I don't like to sit on large wallets overnight though, pump and dump baby. 6.

Can't he just use strToInt or strToIntDef? 7. Originally Posted by Thomas Can't he just use strToInt or strToIntDef? Since when is '0.0124284' an int? StrToFloat is a thing 8. Yep that wasn't tested I have been price watching for so long now.

If you've got an android phone, there's a cool app called boilr on f-droid that'll let you do the same!

11. I think dash has the best changes to reach mass adoption because it is self funding and the masternode network will allow superior on-chain scaling compared to other cryptos. It also has instantly confirmed transactions enabled by masternode locking. Siacoin I believe has the best changes to dominate the decentralized file hosting/sharing market.

Smart contract coins are also interesting but as far as I know people are developing applications that don't necessarily even benefit from smart contracts and people are throwing millions at them.

Even if it's not a scam, having most of the coins already mined is a bit disconcerting. Like Ethereum, I'm staying away!

I know that the instamine happened and I would prefer if it didn't. However the other claims about privacy etc are lacking evidence.

Check these out if you are into monero:

Most of the Monero community might be non-toxic as you said but the people who keep spreading baseless FUD about Dash kind of makes me not want to get involved.

Hmm, I didn't actually know that about monero, thanks for posting it (that's still a big IF, which is representative of any cc, but the more you know)...

QC cryptography is on the roadmap and I have a fair bit of faith it'll be implemented properly.
I've been hanging out on the IRC for a while now and they seem like a decent bunch; and there's no major hiccups so to speak of XMR - apart from https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comm...did_is_not_ok/ (who knows if it's trolling or profiting)...

Whilst Ethereum has had its hacking problems, Bitcoin its forking ones, Dash for the instamining seems disconcerting; to me they seem like big flags to stay away. Just a personal opinion anyways, I could be wrong

Yeah no cryptocurrency is perfect. If you are going to invest you just got to do your own research and invest in what you think has most potential.

Aye. Dash/XMR aside, what do you think is good?

I don't currently have interest in other cryptocurrencies than those that I have already mentioned and bitcoin.

How about you? And what you think is better: limited max coin supply vs unlimited? I'm starting to think that unlimited coin supply would be better for better wealth distribution in the (very) long run. Also the network security wouldn't completely rely on fees. I don't mean % inflation but a static block reward that would be produced forever like in Siacoin and Ethereum. Those two coins obviously require it because both have features that require burning coins to prevent spam or sybil attacks.

Fair enough. I've been casually eyeing siacoin (gone up 3-4x in the past month), nem/xem, iconomi, stratis, and factom (backed by Microsoft if I'm not mistaken). iota also looks interesting...

EDIT: Also regarding slacky's earlier quote these seem good ones:

Yep. I'm no economist but I agree with unlimited - with a tail emission as described here: https://monero.stackexchange.com/que...-tail-emission

Glad to hear about the developers. I feel XMR is what Bitcoin was thought to be by most people (anonymous) but due to the blockchain it isn't really that way.. Bitcoin development seems to have some internal disputes on the way forward so I'm hoping Bitcoin users starts to trickle down into altcoins so I'm holding my XMR There was also the issue of Bitcoin crackdown in China.. LTC definitely saw a price increase due to the announcement of SegWit.

I think Lisk is a good altcoin as well. The altcoins I'm watching closely at the moment are ETH, XMR & SC (SIACOIN).

I also think ETH will see an increase of usage/value with the development of the raiden network.

I'll keep an eye on it

Hopefully just short-term instability - has been sitting around the 20$for a little while now. Actually finally finished hodling at$186, and no, it doesn't bother me that it broke \$250 barrier soon after, as it was already in the NXT which also made substantial gains recently.

As for me, I am pretty optimistic about bitcoin, whether or not it will reach the high value it previously did.. who knows... I am staying enthusiastic. I would regret not investing in bitcoin at all if i had no. I'm reading the cryptocurrency blogs to read News and Tips and tricks related Cryptocurrencies.
