The Man Who Really Built Bitcoin | MIT Technology Review
A portal opened in front of my car today and I hit a time traveler. I cradled him in my arms and he gave me some pages from a journal. His dying words: “take this and publish it to r/Buttcoin. The world must know what awaits it. I fear, however, trying to change the future is futile.” Here it is.
Thursday, July 27, 2023 5:30 am -My alarm goes off blaring random Leo Wolf clips. When he says “I want you to deal with your problems by becoming rich!” I roll out of bed and fill my kitty’s bowl until it overflows. I watch his obese body slide out from under the bed and make its way toward the bowl. I return to sleep. 5:53 am - I awake to Mr. Fats barfing up his food along with a tiny baggie containing a small slip of paper with one-time codes to unlock my trading computers. Not safe to just leave them laying around at night where they could be stolen while I sleep or photographed by a drone through a window. 6:15 am - I enter my sonically shielded (so no one can record my typing patterns) and EMF shielded (obvious reasons) trading room I built out of the closet next to the front door of my 200 square foot apartment. I unlock my machines and get the new random passwords for tomorrow. Time to start trading during my self-imposed two hour trading schedule. Things are looking good. HomeCoin is up 10% - yes! - one step closer to being out of the apartment and into my own house. PottyCoin went down the tubes last night, so to speak, but I knew it was coming and I hedged with 10x margin shorts. Someone will be personally wiping my butt clean in a luxurious stall today! WaterCoin down - no wonder my faucet wasn’t working this morning - but CoffeeCoin up. One of my exchanges exit scammed last night but like most people I have at least ten different exchange accounts with balances at any given time. 8:15 am - I’m done trading. I wipe the sweat from my brow and take my pulse. 137. Not bad! Who needs exercise when you spend each morning with your life savings one click away from being decimated? Suddenly I remember that my paycheck came in last night and it’s time to do some bitcoin cost averaging to my altcoin portfolio. The bitcoin transaction fee eats up half my paycheck, as usual, but I’m not too worried. Lightning Network is only about 18 months from being production-ready and high fees will soon be a thing of the past. 8:33 am - I make it to my favorite coffee shop a little late and order my favorite latte. The cashier frowns, however. Turns out that five minutes ago CoffeeCoin pulled a bart and I can’t even pay for half a cup. I shrug, “I guess I’ll have to trade for more tomorrow!” I tell the cashier as I leave. Oh crypto market you big silly animal - big gains mean sometimes you take little losses. 8:59 am - I squeeze into work just before the door traps me inside. Phew. Wouldn’t want to be docked a week’s pay. Ever since the government collapsed when fiat became worthless, businesses have become way more efficient and profitable due to not being restrained by oppressive labor laws. I may work twelve hours a day, six days a week, but being locked in the building motivates me to strive toward that eight-year promotion where I’ll only work ten hours a day and I can leave the building for thirty minutes at lunch. 9:15 am - I settle into my desk at Kodak Corp. We specialize in ICOs, our most successful being a coin for tracking food coloring from production to consumption. My job is to find photos of random people on the internet that look important and make the images suitable for our ICO prospectuses. 11:37 am - I’m fatigued so I pop a few amphetamines. Weird to think I once had to buy these on the dark web but now they sell them at the company pharmacy. 12:18 pm - Watch a bunch of new hires in a conference room for orientation. KodakCoin has really been up since last Monday and we’ve been hiring like crazy. Hope they all aren’t canned by next Friday if the market drops. 12:47 pm - Eat a quick lunch and then “drop the kids off at the pool”. It’s everything I dreamed it would be. 7:17 pm - Finish a lot of photos. Stretch. Pop more amphetamines. 9:25 pm - Get out of work a little late and then head home. 9:55 pm - Arrive at my apartment only to find a repo team taking my stuff away. After a frantic two hours I discover what happened. Turns out I was dumb enough to buy a laptop from a non-Intel approved computer store. It had a hidden chip on the motherboard waiting for the right moment to steal my private keys and then move my crypto out of my wallets. At first I’m distraught, but then at the lowest point of my despair I realize that I’m one of the few people that could afford to learn a lesson this expensive. I’m truly lucky. 11:58 pm - After dealing with the fiasco at my former apartment, I find out hackers discovered KodakCoin was using SHA1 for their block hashes and the entire coin collapsed. So I’m out of a job, too. I head to my local HomelessShelterPlus. In the past, I would have been ashamed, but now that homeless shelters are all private companies, I have the satisfaction of knowing I won’t be getting a handout. Only five years of indentured servitude until I’m back in the voluntary work force. I smile as I step forward to wait in line for a cardboard box and an allocated spot on a nearby street.
I've spent the last couple months figuring out a good strategy to generate some passive cryptocurrency without investing money before a big bull-run starts. As Bitcoin is still fairly low, but cryptos have been risen again in the last weeks, it's best to get in now. I don't have very much time, so I examinated the best-working websites with the littlest time investment and the highest result possible. Disclaimer: This will be a long post and I'll tell you all the sites I use and how my strategy works. Use it as an inspiration and develop your own working strategy. Skip stuff that doesn't seem to be worth your time or websites you don't like. If you don't like to use a referral-link, just remove the last part of the link. Most websites will give you a bonus when signing up with a ref-link, though and I would appreciate it for the effort I put in this guide. I assume you have some basic knowledge on cryptocurrencies, a wallet and accounts on Faucethub and Coinpot. So, let's get started. Step 1: Claim once a day from stacking up faucets If you're familiar with faucets, you probably know the moon-faucets that pay directly to Coinpot. They keep stacking up until your next claim, so they are the best and highest-paying faucets if you want to keep your time claiming as little as possible. I suggest you use them at least once a day to accumulate the daily bonus that will really change your game. I do a quick claiming round once in the morning and once in the evening. If you have more time, they are also really worth being claimed more often. For the sake of completion I will include them here: Moonbitcoin for Bitcoin Moonlitecoin for Litecoin Moonbitcoincash for Bitcoin Cash Moondash for Dash Moondogecoin for Dogecoin Bitfun stacking up Bitcoin-faucet that pays instantly to Coinpot Two new exact clones of the Moonfaucets that pay instantly to Faucethub with no minimum. They also have daily bonus: Getcoin Bitcoin for Bitcoin Getcoin Litecoin for Litecoin And the last stacking up faucet for BTC: Yannik.biz So yeah, try to claim them at least once a day to maintain your daily bonus. The bonus can really be a game changer on these ones. Claiming them all will take no more than 5-10 minutes every day. Step 2: Receive daily interest on your faucet claims! Send your Bitcoin to Freebitcoin and receive daily interest on your balance once you have more than 30000 Satoshis (shouldn't take too long if you put in some effort in the beginning). You can also use the website as a faucet once a hour. It is actually paying well. If you use my link to sign up a new account you will receive life-long +12,5% on your daily interest and +25% on all your claims. If you already have an account, just create a new one with this link and delete your old one as this ref-back-bonus will give you a decent boost on your earnings. Freebitcoin is one of the oldest and most trusted website in the crypto scene! Step 3: Claim even more cryptos once you have some spare time Highest-paying sites I found where you can claim every hour along with Freebitcoin are these: Cointiply: very high paying and they also give you daily interest, but are tied to USD-rates, so you're better off withdrawing your satoshis to Freebitcoin once you reached minimum withdrawal as you would lose satoshis if BTC price continues to rise. Freedogecoin: Same as Freebitcoin, but with less functions. Bitsfree: New website with cool design where you can claim once a hour and withdraw to Faucethub at a fairly low amount. Pays pretty well. Claimbits: Same script as Bitsfree, but pays a bit less and you have to solve three shortlinks once in a while to be able to claim. It's still worth participating in. Remember: On every claim on these websites you have the chance to win a big amount of cash. So try to use them as often as possible. Unlike the stacking up faucets, with the exception of Cointiply, they don't have a daily bonus, so it's no problem if you ignore them for a while. Bonusbitcoin: Claim a good amount of satoshis every 15 minutes. Instant payments to Coinpot again. Click high-paying ads on AdBtc and Dogeads. Another good website for high-paying BTC-ads is Bits-Pays. Use websites where you can do surveys and all kinds of stuff to earn money that also pay in cryptocurrency. The best website I found that is similar to Swagbucks and has the option to pay cryptos is probably Grindabuck. Claim your daily bonus at Firefaucet, collect some Autoclaims during the week and run it during the happy hours on the weekend to get most of it. Instant payments to Faucethub. Step 4: Use semi-passive methods with crypto farming games There are some crypto games out there that have the ability to build you a decent chunk of passive income after a while. The sites require small tasks you do to earn crypto or credits which you can re-invest in stuff that will generate passive income for you. It takes some effort upfront, but once set up they will passively pay you with no additional effort.Here are my favorites: Satoshi-Labs: Claim from a faucet every 5 minutes, do surveys and shortlinks and re-invest your earnings in buildings that will generate satoshis for you every hour. Cryptomininggame: Play a simulated mining game and do missions to level up. As you level up, your earnings increase. This site has a high stacking up daily bonus and can be very profitable once you get to a high level. Bits-Pays: Has several options to earn passive income. You can play their mining game or buy company shares that will give you dividends. It has a lot of attractive offers for advertisers and very high paying ads and daily bonus, too! Bitcoinfun: This is a new website that works the exact same as satoshilabs. Once you're into satoshilabs you will also get Bitcoinfun. I see a lot of potential for this website. Step 5: Fully passive methods So yeah, let's come to the best part. There are options that require no effort at all! Let's go. I've already written about sending my satoshis to Freebitcoin for daily interest, but what you can also do is sending some cryptos to Eobot. They are probably the only legit Cloudmining platform out there that has been paying since 2013. You can also claim some GHS there every 24 hours if you set Mining to GHS 5.0. first, which is cool. I like to send some of my altcoins like Doge and Bitcoin Cash to them and convert them in GHS to earn passive Satoshis. You have probably heart it a thousand times on this sub, but you can also earn Bitcoin by using the two legit autosurfers that pay in Bitcoin by now. This is a fully passive method, just run them whenever you're online. Getcashfree and Fastcashmining. Another fully passive website planning to add crypto-payments soon is Radioearn. Use browser extensions that will automatically generate money for you just for using them: Presearch: This is probably the best search engine I've ever seen. After installing it will be opened every time you open a new tab. You can customize it, so you can choose from searching via Google, Amazon, Reddit, Wikipedia and much more without accessing the websites first. This is very comfortably and the best part about it: You earn Pre-Tokens for every search, which you can later exchange for BTC. Surfe.be: A browser extension that shows you some Banners while surfing the web and pays you some money for it. You can disable it at any time and it isn't over-present at all when surfing (I barely notice the banners). Claim every 24 hours from Mellowads and use it to advertise your ref-links. You can also promote your ref-links on AdBTC, Bits-Pays and DogeAds. Having referrals is another good way to generate some passive income. Sign up for Mannabase. This is a cool project that aims to create some sort of crypto Universal Basic Income for everyone. After signing up you will need to verify your identity and once they accept you, you'll receive free Manna every week. You can then exchange Manna for BTC or USD. As they have a lot of pending approvals, expect it to take 1-2 months before they accept you. Conclusion So yeah, that's basically my main sources and my strategy and I treat it as some sort of site-business. If I am lazy, I spend no more than 10-15 minutes a day to claim the stacking up faucets and daily bonuses on websites and receive my daily interest, payments from Eobot, crypto games and browser extensions anyway. It's really cool to watch your balances, bonus and interest grow over time and who knows? 1$ in Crypto could be 30$ of Crypto in the future. Use this guide as an inspiration to develop your own strategy of acquiring as many Cryptos for free as you can. For me these websites work the best. And I tested a lot of websites. Additional tips: Use different passwords on the websites and write them all down. It can be a hassle memorizing several passwords. Also create a separate e-mail-address for all the crypto websites. To make it easier handling all the websites, group them in a document e.q. all 1 hour faucets, all stacking up faucets and add links, so you can quickly access them when you want to use this particular group of websites. Be patient at first, your earnings will increase over time. Feel free to ask me anything, have fun and happy claiming! :)
How to make some free money with cryptos for beginners (almost passive!)
As a STEM-student time is rare and money is tight, so I always look for opportunities to create some passive income, even if it is just a couple dollars a month. First let me say: If you haven't done anything with crypto yet and you are confused, don't let it stop you and just follow this guide. Money is money after all and you'll get used to it very fast. Well, I've recently started looking into options to earn beermoney with cryptos and at first sight I was a bit disappointed about the possibilities. Let me explain faucets. A faucet is basically a website with a lot of advertisment where the owner shares some of the revenue they get from the ads with you. All you have to do is click a claim button and you will recieve a small amount of crypto upon clicking a captcha to prove you're a human. The problem here is: The amount these faucets pay is really really low and absolutely not worth the time to click a captcha. You can claim in set periods of time e.q. every 15 minutes, every hour, whereas the amount of crypto you receive stays the same. The amount you need to payout is also very high and not worth the headache. You could easily earn more doing some surveys lol. But then I found another attempt, which seems to be pretty unique. Faucets that are stacking up and you can claim whenever you want to claim. So the money you get for clicking after 24 hours will be way higher than the amount you get when you click after 1 hour. So, I used this to my advantage and now I mainly just claim from these faucets 1-4x a day and I pull in around 0,10-0,30$ a day for 2 minutes of work each time I claim them. It sums up. Especially when you're on your laptop anyway and click more often. But even if you just click them once a day it is still a decent passive money maker that requires no effort. They also reward you with some bonuses which is really cool. For example you get +1% for every day you claim in a row and are always rewarded with a random bonus ranging from 0-100%. So don't let go and aim for that daily bonus to stack up. So, here's what you do to set it all up: 1) Get a Wallet A wallet is the basic tool to do anything with cryptocurrency. Just search the internet, it is full with information. Personally, I use Atomic Wallet on my Laptop. Use any free wallet you want. 2) Register oncoinpot.co This is a microwallet from which you can keep track of your faucet-earnings and can later transfer your money to your wallet. There are no fees, the design is pretty nice and the amount to withdraw to your wallet is fairly low (about 3,6$) and easily reached in like 10-15 days. It is required to access the following faucets. The big bonus here is that all your faucet claims are directly paid to coinpot.co whereas other faucets need a minimum amount to withdraw to a microwallet and an even higher minimum amount to withdraw to your wallet. You receive coins for every claim you do which is really cool, because you can later exchange them into any cryptocurrency the site offers. You can also exchange one cryptocurrency for another with no fee. I always exchange all my coins and cryptos for Bitcoin and withdraw them once I reach the amount. Cryptos you will earn: Bitcoin, Bitcoincash, Litecoin, Dogecoin and Dash. 3) Register on the faucets There are 7 faucets linked to coinpot of which I mainly use 6, because the 7th isn't stacking up. Here you can claim every 15 minutes and it is only worth it if you have some extra time. Moondoge for Dogecoin Moonbitcoin for Bitcoin Moonlitecoin for Litecoin Moondash for Dash Moonbitcoincash for Bitcoincash Bitfun another one for Bitcoin And the last one, which is the only one that doesn't stack up, but also pays directly to your coinpot and can be claimed every 15 minutes (would only use if you got a lot of free time, but then it can be quite lucrative): Bonusbitcoin So, all you do is set it all up and then leave it open in a tab or login once a day and claim your stacked up cryptos. It's really easy and very quickly done. If you forget them one day, they will still stack up, but you lose your daily bonus which is why I really recommend you to at least claim once every 24 hours. If you claim more often you will get more. You can claim every 5 minutes. They will directly transfer into your coinpot wallet where you can transform them into one another. I would recommend you to stick to one crypto of your choice to withdraw faster. No fees. BIG EDIT: Okay, for this one you register on faucethub.io, which is another microwallet similar to coinpot. You can mine there if you want or do some minitasks, but basically you need it to receive money just like coinpot. Then you register on satoshilabs. This website is awesome. You can claim coins from their faucet every 5 minutes and invest them in "buildings" which will produce you even more coins. You need to do some grinding at first to get your farm going (I highly recommend saving for Generators instead of Bunkers because the payout is way higher for them, you can complete some surveys to get your first Generators up quickly) and then you can watch your money grow passively. It's a really fun game and definitely worth participating in. Some other sites working with faucethub, where you can claim a decent amount once per hour are: cointiply.com and freebitcoin They need some grinding to get to the withdrawal amount, but they pay decently and can also earn you interest after some time. They are currently the best faucets you can link to your faucethub-account and if you have one, there's no harm in checking them out and see if they work for you. EDIT DONE Bonus: If you're fixed with crypto stuff now, I can recommend you another site to generate passive crypto income. It's called Mannabase and will give you Manna, which is their own cryptocurrency, every week. The project is made up very nice and their vision is to create something like a Universal Basic Income. You just need to register, validate your ID and get free Manna which you can exchange for Dollars or other Cryptos. You should check them out. These tips should work from any country and I really hope I could help someone. Happy earnings and keep grinding!
Community Request: Help Venezuela & Network Stress Test together
Hi, I wanted to ask, what are people's ideas and opinions on the following and should we go ahead with this? TL;DR We raise $12,500 as a community, request if Devs can match it. With $25,000, we open the original Raiblocks faucet for 24 hours paying out 0.01, aimed at Venezuela. That will lead to 2,500,000 transactions. All the techies/node holders etc on the same day, run scripts and do further stress testing on live network. Why and When: Current situation in Venezuela, how Crypto can help them and prompt adoption, $2-4 is thier MONTHLY wage. They can earn $1.8 per HOUR. Lead to boost in marketing. Bitcoin Cash is doing thier stress testing on 1st September, we can use thier marketing and awareness they've built and show how Nano did more than BCH, is faster, had zero fees cost and helped real life people and the real life Venezuela situation Summary and background Given the current Venezuelan crisis, and how crypto can have a positive impact on people living there, with some peoples monthly wages are around $2-$4. As a community and for crypto adoption, how do we move forward in order to make a real difference and generate awareness? While, there were previous talks about a community stress tests for our network, this did not happen due to other events. However Bitcoin Cash, are planning to do a community stress test on the 1st September, and when they do this, there will be big news on their achievement. My idea/proposal As we have a fantastic opportunity and a chance to gain significant marketing and awareness, if we can do a community stress test on the same day and help people in Venezuela. This will be a massive boost in marketing and awareness of NANO, and when we beat BitcoinCash at the same day, and can help real life people and promote adoption. We can effectively, use all their marketing and build up and on the same day, when the news and stories come out, we would be on top. In effect the old saying of "kill two birds with 1 stone". Steps required 1) We as a community and u/TheNanoCenter create a request to raise $12,500. Given the success of the previously fund raising of $5,000 in less than a week. It does seem possible, to raise this in a 2-3 weeks time. 2) We ask useTroy, to request if the Devs could match this amount and support the idea, If yes, we move on 3) We will then have a total of $25,000 or a total of 2,500,000 cents. 4) We then ask Colin, if he could Resurrect the orignal Raiblocks faucet and relaunch this with Nano. If we take $25,000 and pay out 0.01 cent for the faucet. The person in Venezuela can earn around $1.8 per HOUR (in comparison their monthly wages are around 2-4$). We can assume or cap the faucet, so it pays out every 20 seconds. I have contacted a few people from Venezuela and they said earning 10$ would be great and significant for them. This faucet would be online and live only for 24 hours on 1st September and paying out, every 20 seconds per user.l, we can educate people on crypto and what NANO is and other general things, our goals and missions. It will give a chance to a wide range of people to equally obtain funds and learn more about Nano and crypto. Currently - User ChocolateFudCake, can confirm the amount of people from Venezuela, If people are happy, we can create a discord and start to promote this and we can teach people how to set up their wallets in advance. Based on my maths, if a person can do 3 faucets per minute, that means 180 per hour, on average lets say they do this for 15 hours, they can do 2,700 faucets, which is around $27 in total. With the $25,000 we can effectlty help and equally share this out to a total of 925 to 1,000 people. 5) This should give us a total of 2,500,000 transactions on out network and based on my calculations put the Tx per second to around 29 on average. 2,500,000 / total 86,400 seconds per day (Wrong calculation?) 6) While this is happening, user jaydubs, Kritainji, all node holders, techies and everyone else (too many people to name, who always help out) who can help, and can use their scripts/skills to send more transactions in the background and stress test the network. Final outcome This will really help a range of people more directly and equally and give them a chance to potentially earning around 4-5 months of wages in a day. As well as give us a massive boost in marketing and have the chance to tag this story on how cryoto is helping real life people and how we managed to beat BCH, and how the fact the news stories will highlight how there was zero transaction costs and highlight everything Nano and the Nano community can do over BCH and our vision. I have wrote UseXYZ as I wanted ideas and opinions first and if people would want this, then I will tag the users. Will update formats and tidy up later tomorrow, just want some initial ideas and thoughts, is it possible or any risks? Ill share the posts abot the wages information too
jl777 informal Telegram chat 9/AUG/18. Topics include Crypto Condition smart contracts, ERC20 token migration, scaling, and marketing.
TL:DR will be in comments This is an informal discussion with jl777 and some Komodo team members and the community on Telegram. I've edited some of the grammar and structure, combined shorter messages into paragraphs to help readability, and removed messages that weren't relevant to the discussion or had already been answered. Full text is visible on Komodo telegram, or Komodo Discord (telegram channel) --- N 21: Mr. Please when smart contracts? jl777: first four reference contracts are pretty much working now, likely some bug fixes needed but assets, faucet, rewards and dice CC contracts are functional Firedragon: Ethereum start the year 2017 around 7 dollars, end the year x 200 times at around *1400*, user friendliness leads to giant expansion. jl777: Sure, no disagreement, but code snippets don’t seem very user friendly. Unless you mean having cartoon characters alongside the code snippets makes it user friendly? jl777: Having non-coders doing code is dangerous, no matter if it has cartoons. Firedragon: enables expansion at scale. jl777: Until you get an actual dApp that is popular and the entire chain bogs down and TX fees goes to $5+ Firedragon: it is dangerous, but once run into problem, will likely seek help, but important, easy to start. jl777: With the CC contracts, it is a matter to issue rpc calls to start a contract. So it doesn’t require coding, but if your use case isn’t covered by an existing CC contract, then a custom CC contract needs to be written. It is similar to ASIC mining vs CPU mining. More work to make the ASIC, but once created it can do all the related things much more efficiently. jl777: Assets with DEX, faucet, rewards and dice CC contracts I made in a month. We are in the process of hiring a dedicated CC contracts dev, they are not that much work to code but it does require to be coded and I only did the cli rpc calls, not GUI. Firedragon: komodo solve the scalability of Cryptokittens that Ethereum bog down with. I believe Ethereum solve the usability issues. if only combine the two. jl777: Yes, KMD solves the Cryptokitties scalability issue, but someone has to write the Cryptokitties CC contract which is mostly independent of the blockchain as it has the kitty’s DNA logic that seems to be most of it. Jakub Alex: Jl777 what is your opinion about future price after bear market? What price levels can we expect with komodo? 50-100? 100-200 or more? Are we able to be in top 15 m cap coins? jl777: Future KMD price depends on overall crypto market cap, if you can predict that, then I can predict a future KMD price. Historically KMD is a bit under 0.1% of overall crypto market cap. Assuming KMD price rises in CMC to top 10 level, then it would be closer to 1% of overall crypto market cap. jl777: So really, just 2 variables. What overall rank on CMC and the total crypto market cap. Chris Fray: Staking Is the best way u come back in a year collect your 5% and do it all over again don't panic sell. jl777: It will be monthly starting very soon. The Fonz: How many nodes are there currently? Running the network? is there a real time link to a list? jl777: There is no way to know for sure, I would estimate about 1000 Rubinho: How do you run a node on KMD? Just by staking tokens? jl777: Running a native wallet, runs a node. Rubinho: Who is the intended end user for KMD? b2c? b2b? both? what is the state of partnerships? The Fonz: Minimum KMD required? Regnar: To run a node? No minimum required, but to earn 5.1% rewards on your balance, you need a minimum of 10 KMD in an address, the simplest way to do this is to store funds in Agama (even the lite mode) and press the claim interest button. The Fonz: gotcha, thx. Regnar: Probably best to check out the discord marketing channel for updates and talks on that, telegram generally gets cluttered quickly with other conversations. There are definitely partnerships being worked on, but I think it would be better to wait for official announcements on them, so I won't disclose or help push any rumors there. Here's the link.https://discord.gg/5WtTNKX Regnar: jl777, I assume ERC20 projects who are looking to migrate off of Ethereum, or launch their main net, would be interested in Komodo as CC becomes more developed. Can you say what that migrating/main net process might look like for those projects? jl777c: the process would be to get a new chain spawned to test the custom contract with and when it is working,to just migrate the ERC20 snapshot to the new chain. The CC framework is ready to be coded to and devs can create a custom contract embedded in their chain. txfees in their chain, only tx from their dapp on their chain. Regnar: And I assume before they migrate to their new chain they can have all the features and things in place to be atomic swap capable, set up for dPoW, and would have the same scaling tech Komodo uses? jl777: yes, all can be put in place before doing the snapshot and migrating, and everything other than enabling dPoW can be done without our being involved, though we are happy to help. Regnar: Okay so the dPoW part requires Komodo involvement, and GameCredits, Kreds, Utrum, and some other coins have added dPoW to their chains for the extra security. Is this process getting easier to do for established coins that aren't looking to migrate? jl777: as far as if KMD will survive this bear market, I am confident KMD will survive the next bear market and even the one after that. We have funding for 10+ years of dPoW and while we do have end user deliverables, that is a very expensive marketing wise for customer acquisition. Our focus on enabling technologies allows us to run much leaner on the marketing side. and in any case, we don’t have millions of dollars to be throwing about left and right for paid placements and listings like many of the other projects do. It will take longer, but as more people learn about KMD, the mentions we will get will be based on KMD attributes and not due to paid placements. Rubinho: The main focus for many platforms is to attract devs.. i think the perception of the numbers of devs out is over estimated... what would you consider to be a "possible application" that can be built on KMD for the benefit of the end user? Again I own KMD, I just want to have a better grasp of KMD's competitive edge, is it only TPS? And if there isn't a lot of money for paid placements... which is understandable... how would KMD be better distributed in more hands? jl777: I wrote 4 reference contracts last month: assets with DEX, faucet, rewards and dice. Once written they can be configured without programming, each CC contract that is written becomes part of the baseline contracts available for all chains, and the rewards CC contract implements what seems to be what is most liked about masternodes. xRobeSx: Assetchains / dPoW / jumblr / 5% interest... the list goes on and on. The fact that anyone can spawn a new chain in seconds that has a built in faucet, is pretty damn cool. The Fonz: This link is helpful as well https://www.reddit.com/komodoplatform/comments/8gyajv/welcome_to_komodo_a_beginners_guide/ jl777: Assets/tokens are also pretty important and dice is a classic blockchain game, all these are blockchain enforced trustless implementations Steve Lee: I'd recommend reading https://komodoplatform.com/komodo-evolution-the-5-pillars-of-blockchain-tech/ and the 5 deep dive posts linked in the article. Rubinho: how would that be beneficial in a real life scenario? what would be your prediction for the future in terms of the numbers of chains or platforms? Many or few winners? xRobeSx: The first few years of bitcoin, was a lot of faucets and dice games :smiley: now anyone can do it in minutes ha. Steve Lee: We're working with https://www.ideasbynature.com/ for a full rebrand and also refreshing the UX/UI across our product portfolio. Ideas By Nature is the world’s leading agency focused solely on the design and development of blockchain products. Located in the heart of Denver, CO. jl777: these are just the reference CC contracts, the possibilities are endless as to what can be implemented. Basically anything you can describe coherently in detail can be made into a CC contract. Steve Lee: We've spent the last year building the most securely scalable and interoperable blockchain infrastructure. We find this was critical to first focus on building the right foundation for our ecosystem and ensuring it was future-proof and to address many of the limitations we're seeing today. Χαίρετε: UX/UI are better comparing with the old KMD apps, but it's still far from user friendly, the standards have to be much, much higher, otherwise I don't see much adoptions J: I want to see ethLend style CC system in KMD Rubinho: btw... I own KMD on ledger… will there be a way to gain the interest without having to move it to another wallet? I mean to claim. I don't want to take my private keys and put them into another wallet. Steve Lee: This is our current interim solution. We're exploring full wallet integration with the Ledger team. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKBdGI8pu7M&lc=z22audyhlvnrjpdwq04t1aokgbvrwe1nz2iz0sbmi0mnrk0h00410 Rubinho: thank u for that! Χαίρετε: average users access your infrastructure via apps, doesn't matter how good your underline techs are, if apps are hard to use, people will leave. google cloud has better tech than AWS, better engineering team, better talents, but it's losing big against AWS, internally google said it will only fund it 2 more years if things don't turn around, i know number of people who have left that team, so the infrastructure doesn't matter at the end. i think KMD team has this engineering mentality thinking that UX/UI is easy, but the opposite is true, designing a user friendly product is hard, even harder than engineering. Steve Lee: Agreed, that's why since we've finished building the foundational architecture, we're moving focuses on building out our developer community, documentation, training, and are moving towards development of a smart contract reference library. Siu: Mm1.0 is a proof of concept. As it is right now it still is ages ahead of similar concepts. It should be jaw dropping even as it currently is. The real problem bdex confronts is the prostitution of the "atomic swap" name by ETH tokens. Steve Lee: Also in plan is building a GUI frontend for blockchain creation, customization, etc. jl777: if everything was perfect already, we would be done and have nothing to do. it is a process of continuous improvement James: Ethereum has solidity. Is there equivalent for Komodo? jl777: CC contracts are native code running at full speed. Any language that can be compiled into a library can be used, but we are just getting started with making different language bindings and it would need to interface to the c/c++ functions inside the komodod. My thinking is that blockchain coding is difficult and not something end users or casual programmers should be doing, such can and have led to some very expensive errors, even experienced blockchain devs make errors. C++ is the easiest, but any language that compiles would be able to be used. James: OK. So it is c++ Rubinho: could you walk me thought how am I (the end user) going to use KMD in the system? is KMD like GAS for the platform? jl777: rust would likely not be too hard to interface to. The CC contracts tend to be configurable, so the user can determine the settings of the rewards and not have to code it, of course a full blockchain project creating their own dapp would need to still create their own dapp, but on their own chain, there is no crazy txfee, congestion, etc [End Chat]
Have you ever wanted to collect crypto to join the hype, but are not willing to invest real money? The good news is there are in fact methods to get them online for free. All it requires is some investment of time on your part to start your crypto journey! According to cnbc.com, $1,000 worth of bitcoin in 2013 would be worth $6,400 in October 2018. Freebitco.in / (non-ref) This is a well known faucet that pays users every hour. Each time you roll, there is a chance that you win a payout bigger than the base payout of 0.00000033 BTC. If you are very lucky, you might win the highest payout (worth $203.17 at the date of posting). Considering that you are doing nothing but clicking on a roll button, this seems to be a good site. Each roll also gives you 2 free lottery tickets and 2 reward points. Lottery tickets enter you into a weekly lottery draw. Reward points can be traded for benefits such as electronics, hardware wallets and gift certificates. If you are not interested in the prizes, you could very well trade for the free BTC bonus, which awards 10% to 1000% bonus to the base reward for the BTC faucet. I'm not a fan of gambling and firmly believe that you will lose money in the long run. If you would like to try your luck and have some fun, however, there is a Multiply BTC section featuring a provably HI-LO game which awards 1 free lottery ticket and 1 reward point for every 1000 satoshis that you wager. Freedoge.co.in / (non-ref) This is a very similar site to freebitco.in, albeit with fewer features. Use it along with freebitco.in! Cointiply.com / (non-ref) Hourly faucet which pays extra when you roll prime numbers. You can also earn by watching videos, completing offer walls (Tap Research, Adscend Media, AdGate Media, Minute Staff, Revenue Wall, Opinion Capital, Theorem Reach, Offer Toro, Persona.ly, Wannads, Kiwi Wall, Offer Daddy, PTC Wall, Pollfish, Clix Wall, Say So Rewards, Adwork Media, Super Rewards). Try your luck on the multiplier if you are feeling lucky! Moon Faucets These are a unique set of faucets - you decide how often to claim! Most faucets only allow you to claim at fixed intervals of time. With the Moon faucets, you can claim as little or often as you like. The faucet fills rapidly initially and slows down over time until you make a claim. You decide how often you want to claim, with the knowledge that the amount keeps building up! With these sites, there is an opportunity to increase claim amounts through the daily loyalty bonus, referral bonus, offer bonus, mystery bonus and mining bonus schemes. These faucets pay out to CoinPot.
Other Coinpot Faucets Bonusbitcoin.co / (non-ref) Claim up to 5000 satoshi every 15 minutes. This site also pays a 5% daily bonus. You can also use this site as a GPT site by doing offers and surveys (Super Rewards, Wannads, Offer Daddy, Offer Toro). Bitfun.co / (non-ref) Claim from this faucet every 3 minutes. You might be happy to know that this site allows you to earn by playing games. If you prefer to do offers and surveys, Super Rewards, Wannads and Offer Toro are available. Semi-passive Sites If you prefer something which earns by doing little work, the sites below may be of interest. While some of them may require more effort at the start, the results will soon pay off. Firefaucet.win / (non-ref) This is the closest thing to a true auto-faucet! Complete shortlinks, mine or complete offerwalls (AdGateMedia, Offer Toro, Offer Daddy, Pollfish, PTCWall, MinuteStaff, Wannads). A single shortlink gives 50 autoclaims as well as 50 activity points which help you level up. As your level increases, each claim gives you slightly greater value in crypto. You may decide whether payments are kept in the Fire Faucet account or directly to Faucet Hub. Funds within the Fire Faucet account can be withdrawn manually to Faucet Hub. Payments are fast and can be seen almost instantly. It should be noted that once you start the Auto Faucet, you have to leave it the tab open for it to continue claiming crypto. The tab itself does not have to be active and you can continue with your personal activities. Satoshilabs.net / (non-ref)A combination of GPT, autofaucet and game, all in one website. Tasks in the offerwalls (AdscendMedia, PTCWall, ShortLinks, AdGateMedia, AdWorkMedia, MinuteStaff, TheoremReach, Persona.ly) give you credits, while the faucet and mining game give you lab flasks. Both are exchangeable with one another. Purchase mining equipment from your hard work to start earning lab flasks passively! Note that Generators and Security are the best investments due to greater ROI. Energy decreases every hour and each energy point costs 3 points + 0.75 credits for every 5000 production. You may consider enabling Autorefill Energy (which consumes credits), as production decreases when energy goes down. According to the FAQ, the formula for satoshi earning rate is ((YourProduction/10)*0.14)*(YourCurrentEnergy/100). As you can tell, more work is required at the beginning, but it will all pay off. Referring to the current leaderboard the top person has a production power of 194797. Let's try calculating the amount of satoshi generated for this person.((194797/10)*0.14)*(100/100)= 2727 satoshi per hour. Cryptomininggame.com / (non-ref) Mine crypto either through the game, or for real! Missions allow you to level up as well as earn crystals, mining power and crypto at the cost of energy, which replenishes with time or by doing shortlinks. Each mission also gives you tickets for entry to a weekly Mega Jackpot. The site is also releasing a light version of the game Crypto Mining War very soon, which you can play using cards (earned through the website as well). The final version is still under development, but it is fun, multiplayer and crypto can be earned through it. Eobot.com / (non-ref) Before proceeding, it should be noted that this is a Cloud mining site. Majority of Cloud mining sites are ponzi scheme scams. It is uncertain if that is the case for this site. A crypto deposit is made as an investment, which gives mining power. It should be noted that 24 hour mining contracts will definitely give a loss on this site - you receive less than you invest. Only invest in 10 year contracts if possible. I generally only use crypto I gain from faucet and GPT sites to fund this account. NEVER use real money on Cloud mining sites. Thanks for reading and happy earning!

Hello cryptocurrency lovers! Welcome to Coin-a-Year, the laziest series yet in the Coin-a-Day publishing empire. This year's coin is Nyancoin (NYAN). I originally covered Nyancoin in an article here in /cryptocurrency published January 4th, 2015. Without (much) further ado, I'm going to include the original report next, unmodified. This is unlike my Coin-a-Week series, where I use strikeout and update in-text. Because this is going to be a longer update, I'll just make all further comments and updates below, just realize that all information below is as of January 4th, 2015 and thus is more than a year out of date as of posting now, at the end of February 2016. Since I use horizontal rules as internal dividers in the original post, I'll use a double horizontal rule to divide the original text from this prelude and the following update. Coin-a-Day Jan 4th Welcome to the fourth installment of Coin-a-Day! To see convenient links to the introduction and the previous entries, please see /coinaday. Today's coin is Nyancoin (NYAN). Summary • ~173.6 million available currently ; 337 million limit  • All-time high: ~0.000024 BTC on February 16, 2014  • Current price: ~3 satoshi  • Current market cap: ~$1,275  • Block rate (average): 1 minute   • Transaction rate: ~25? / last 24 hours; estimated $3-4  • Transaction limit: 70 / second  • Transaction cost: 0 for most transactions  • Rich list: ???  • Exchanges: Cryptsy  • Processing method: Mining  • Distribution method: proof-of-work block rewards and 1% premine for "bounties, giveaways & dev support"   • Community: Comatose  • Code/development: https://github.com/nyancoin-release/nyancoin ; there hasn't been a released code change in 10 months. The new developer has talked about some changes, but has not made a new release. He has given advice about how to keep the network running and operate the client.  • Innovation or special feature: First officially licensed cryptocurrency (from Nyancat) ; "zombie"-coin  Description / Community: So you're probably wondering why in the world we're talking about a coin which has been declared dead and already written off. I actually first selected this coin to illustrate a "deadcoin", but the more I dug into it, the more I was amazed at the shambles I discovered. I am combining the description and community sections for this coin, because the community (or lack thereof) is the central issue for Nyancoin. Substantially all, if not literally all, of the original infrastructure is gone. From the announcement post, the original website has expired. The nyan.cat site itself survives, but has no reference to the coin. The github repo remains, but then there was never much changed from the bitcoin/litecoin original. In fact, the COPYING file doesn't even list "Nyancoin Developers". None of the original nodes seem to be running anymore. @Nyan_Coin hasn't tweeted since July 6th. And that was just to announce posting an admittedly cute picture to facebook which makes a claim for a future which seems never to have developed. Of the original 15 pools, I think all are dead except p2pool, for which at least one node still supports NYAN. The original blockchain explorer, nyancha.in, is still running. The faucet is dead or broken. The original exchanges no longer list it (two of the three having died; SwissCEX having ended its trading as of the first of this year). And so forth. And yet:
[Of course, that scene finishes with knocking out the "recovering" patient so he can be taken away...not to mention the absurdity of including Monty Python in a financial article, but moving right along.] There is still just enough left to Nyancoin to keep it twitching, even if it is on life-support. Whether it's an individual node or whether it's a pool, there are blocks being produced at a steady rate as intended. Transactions are being processed. There is still a market. There is still a block explorer. And there is a dev. It is like a case study in the absolute minimum necessary to keep a coin alive. The most likely outcome is almost certainly a final collapse when one critical piece or another of the infrastructure goes away. And yet in the meantime, a person can own a million NYAN for $8 , and then move this coin quickly and easy, albeit with no particular external demand. It's like the world's most hyped testnet. I think this case presents an interesting example of what happens to an altcoin when its initial support dries up. NYAN coin is more fortunate than some, actually, as there are some where there are no longer any nodes running it nor the original announcement thread (in fact, there was actually a second Nyancoin launched around the same time. But it died hard and its original announcement thread was deleted and at this point I would have no idea how to access it; so "Nyancoin" thus illustrates how hard a coin can die (Nyancoin 2) as well as how it can hang around despite being proclaimed dead, with far more justification behind that pronouncement than there has been for bitcoin (NYAN) ). Footnotes  http://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/nyancoin/  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=402085.0 Regarding the premine, it's unclear to me where this money is now, since the original poster hasn't been active on BCT since May and the original site is down. However, given that it's only 1%, and about $25 in value right now, there seem to be more significant concerns for NYAN.  http://nyancha.in/chain/Nyancoin - Nyan blockchain explorer; blocks are somewhat inconsistent but somewhere around the 1 minute average  There doesn't seem to be anything automatically doing these stats, so I did visual inspection on about 1500 blocks (about one day) excluding the block generation reward (~250k/day). Most blocks are otherwise empty. I counted about 24 transactions or so scrolling through, with an outlier around 300k NYAN and another around 100k NYAN. In total, about 500k NYAN, excluding the block rewards. This is very approximately $3-4.  Nyancoin is a basically unmodified, slightly out-of-date bitcoin as far as code goes, and ignoring the change in block rate and total coin supply, as well as the difficulty retarget after every block. So for purposes of estimating maximum possible transaction throughput, I start with bitcoin's estimated 7 transactions per second, and multiply by 10 for having a block on average every minute rather than every 10 minutes. In any event, this limit is not likely to be reached in the foreseeable future.  Like bitcoin, transaction fees appear to be optional in Nyancoin. Unlike bitcoin, there is almost no transaction volume, and coins tend to sit for a relatively long time before being moved. So zero-fee transactions appear to be the norm from looking at a couple transactions on the block explorer.  I couldn't find one. See the disclosure section of this article: your humble correspondent is likely represented in some way on a top 100 if one were to be made or if one exists, despite not holding it directly, depending on how the exchange holds it.  I could not find any other exchanges still listing Nyancoin. SwissCex appears to have disabled it as of a couple days ago. Cryptsy has a notice that the NYAN/BTC market will be closing, but its NYAN/LTC market appears strong.  Essentially all of the original sites, pools, faucets, etc. are dead and there has been very little to replace it. There is basically a single node, or perhaps a very few, which are running the blockchain. However, there is a developer still trying to hold things together, maxvall_dev, maxvall on BCT. He is the last hope for the NYAN.  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=597877.0 This is the thread where maxvall took over as dev, and it also discusses switching to PoS, which hasn't happened as far as I know.  "zombie"-coin: Not to be confused with ZMB (my god, does it ever end?). This is my term to describe a coin which is "undead": by rights it should be dead. And yet it's still walking around and acting like it's alive. What is it? What's going on? It's quite debatable whether this gives it any special value, but I find it an interesting state, and it's why this was chosen for early coverage. There are plenty of actually popular and successful coins, and we will go onto covering more normal selections; we're looking for variety rather than repetition. But I think this is an interesting example for what can go wrong, and yet in the midst of that, how little it takes for a coin to survive. In fact, it's almost like an alternate history bitcoin to me; this shows the concept that "it was run on one computer before; it can be run on one computer again" to some extent. And there are even some strange pragmatic benefits as well, like having no competition for getting a transaction into a block and thus zero transaction fees.  And, in fact, the author chose to do so today, spending about 0.03 BTC for about 1 million NYAN. Additional Reading • /nyancoins - Like NYAN: mostly dead, but not quite • http://nyan-coin.org/ - new official website • BCT thread listing nodes, xpool (p2pool), for mining information. • americanpegasus predicting in February that NYAN will hit $1; always an entertaining read Giveaway Instead of a challenge today, since NYAN has enough challenges, I decided I would give away 10,000 NYAN to at least the first ten people who ask for it. This still remains at my discretion, but honestly, if you really want, say, 50,000 NYAN and create four new accounts to do so, I'll probably be too amused to say no. I don't expect to get ten requests. If I get more, I'll probably still fulfill them, but as with everything else, this is left to my whim. Donations and Disclosure Okay, this is an important one today because of the tiny market here. I actually hold less USD value in NYAN than in BTC, DOGE, and PPC (although my value in PPC might be about equivalent actually), but I hold more of the total market in NYAN than any of those three. And I'll probably be buying more. So I have a conflict of interest in writing this article. I am not providing financial advice and I do not make any recommendations of any sort on any matters. Make your own decisions; do your own research. Please, I do not want to hear about anyone doing anything "on my advice." I am not offering advice. I personally hold just over 1 million NYAN on Cryptsy right now. Perhaps it would be better if I didn't write any articles about anything I were invested inspeculating on, but I started this series for my own education to further my speculation, so unfortunately, dear reader, your needs come second to my own. tanstaafl; you get what you pay for, and I'm giving you my thoughts. If by some strange quirk of fate you actually own NYAN and enjoyed this article and wished to donate some to me, K7Ho9HghBF6xWwS6JsepE6RAEPyAXbsQCV is mine (first non-empty account I've posted; transferred 1000 NYAN into here earlier from Cryptsy to test that the network and my wallet were actually working). Thank you all for reading and commenting! I've already learned a lot from this process and I look forward to more! Upcoming coins: • January 5th: Nxt • January 6th: Darkcoin • January 7th: Namecoin I'll use alphabetic labeling for footnotes in the updates to avoid any confusion with the footnotes in the original. For simplicity, unchanged items, like the 337 million limit and the 1 minute will not be mentioned, and we'll start with the summary changes. Updates: Summary
Community: We're not quite dead yet; in fact, I think we're getting better! [f]
Code/Development: I have an early draft of NYAN2, but I'm about six months past my initial goal for having it available to use. Life/work/lack of build machine/procrastination. NYAN2 will be a rebase onto a modern LTC codebase which will soft fork to fix a current vulnerability to a fork bug. For now, the network still runs on the same code that it did when I wrote the first article.
Discussion I'm going to consider the community first, since I pointed it out as the weakness and central topic in the last one, then talk about the technical situation briefly, and then review the financial results. The community has been excellent, if I do say so myself. We've got working infrastructure going thanks to the contributions of many Nekonauts (see [f]). Some original Nekonauts have returned or at least popped in from time to time, and new ones like myself have found Nyancoin (I would say given what I wrote in the original, I was still a skeptic of it at that point. Not that skeptics can't be Nekonauts, but I think I'd put my conversion to the cult of nyan shortly after writing that, even though I was already a nillionaire then for the heck of it.) While I do look forward to seeing the community continue to grow in future years and consider that important, I don't think the community is our weakest point any longer; I think it's now our strongest point. I've tried to encourage the community's revival as best I could, including giving away tens of nillions in total, and lots of long rambling articles on my views on ethics and philosophy and frankly it's worked better than I would've really expected (or at least it has coincided with an effective recovery of the community). The community also helped me through at least a couple hard times personally in there as well. The technical situation in Nyancoin is mostly unchanged but slightly improved, although with two additional known vulnerabilities. It's unchanged in that it's the same client. It's improved in that we have an active nyanchain explorer host (nyan.space), and we have a public draft of a plan for a soft forking security fix update in the near future (hopefully by the end of March (although I've slipped these deadlines before and may well miss March for release by a bit, I do think I'm inching closer now and then)). The most serious vulnerability is to forking. This is the bug which hit Peercoin if I recall correctly. NYAN2 is intended to solve this through its soft fork from the LTC fix upstream (from the BTC fix upstream). In the meantime, we've been lucky we haven't been attacked. The tiny marketcap probably helps with not being a particularly attractive attack target. We're not exactly about to pay ransom to move faucet outputs. But that's no excuse; we want this fixed and should have it finally done "soon" (tm). The less serious vulnerability is to a time warp attack in the difficulty function (Kimoto Gravity Well), which relates to general weaknesses it has and issues we've had with large gaps in the block chain because of spikes in the difficulty function causing it to be unprofitable and driving away most of the hash, and then low difficulty and price rise making it attractive to more hash, creating a spike and causing it again. While this is irritating, the chain still works, even if there are fits and starts at times. An important part of the reason I can get away with this is because there is at least one Nekonaut-supporting miner, CartmanSPC, who rescues us from time to time, and did so during the course of this article being written. We have a bunch of pools, but sometimes the hash just isn't there to get us unstuck when the difficulty goes high enough. Another part of the reason I consider it not an especially serious issue is because there's a workaround which works for me (classic bad developer logic): I use a large transaction fee (generally 337 NYAN, although I might have halved it after the most recent halving, I'll probably use 337 again) on my personal wallet by default. If necessary, I use a couple of them. It can make NYAN profitable to mine again despite the higher difficulty and "unstick" the chain. The difficulty function can go back down again in the next block if the gap has been long enough, so that can be enough to keep it going again for a while (although it can also get stuck again irritatingly fast at times). A fix for this will be putting in a better difficulty function for NYAN3, which will require a hard fork. This is tentatively scheduled for feature freeze around the middle of this year, coding to follow, activation sometime early 2017. Financial has been our most disappointing performance. A graph of the 1 year performance right now on coinmarketcap looks pretty sad, showing our fall from a little over 60 satoshi down to around 7 satoshi now. We rose too high, too fast, and I didn't stick with the safe high paying job like a sane person. Instead I hit the road, went to jail, and worked minimum wage. That doesn't sound like a sentence from a cryptocurrency financial review, does it? But the performance of NYAN since the article has been the story of my personal finances, which is the story of my life since then. So, autobiographical coinaday interlude, trying to keep it generally to the most salient points. Well, in 2014 I had been on my way home to Minnesota from California when I was pulled over leaving Eureka, Nevada for speeding (got sloppy and went 45 approaching the 45 sign and thus technically still in the 35; bored cop seeing out-of-state plates). My vehicle reeked of weed, what with having been in Mendocino County previously with no intention of traveling out of the county much less state anytime soon but family emergency brought me back, and the end result was a citation for possession of cannabis and paraphernalia along with the speeding. Fast forward to the beginning of 2015, I'm settled into a good software position and start looking more at cryptocurrency in my spare time. I write the coin-a-day series for a bit and then got annoyed and quit after a while when trying to do one a day on top of an actual job was too much for me (along with some annoyance over criticism; I can be rather thin-skinned at times). But I had gotten interested in Nyancoin, and started buying it up more and more with extra money I was making. And then comes the crash. I had to stop putting as much in as I realized that where I was living and what I was working on wasn't going to work out for me and I needed to figure something else out. So, as I seem wont to do, I went on a roadtrip. I quit my job. And I went back for the court date for my citations and refused to pay, instead spending 10 days in jail rather than pay ~$1400 (I actually had the money in cash available to me if I chose to pay as a backup if I chickened out, but the judge annoyed me enough that I really preferred to be jailed instead of paying, as stupid as that sounds since I'm quite sure the judge didn't care in the least one way or another). After that, I went back to roadtrip lifestyle for a while. It was a nice period. A lot of beautiful scenery; a lot of reading. Eventually, I busted up my car pretty badly...a couple times actually, the second time for good. Fast forwarding through the rest of the year, I worked a couple minimum wage jobs to pay bills and avoid cubicle life and kill some time until I figured out what I was going to do next. Just recently I quit as delivery boy after getting a speeding ticket (I swear, I'm not as horrible of a driver as this makes me sounds, although I have had a bad tendency to speed in the past, which I really have curbed to almost nothing; but I'm clearly not good enough) and am currently writing a Coin-a-Year article with a friend's incentive and applying to do documentation and development with the Nu project. Okay, so what did any of that have to do with NYAN? Well, it's the mess of a life that has led to the fall of the price from 60 satoshi to 7 satoshi. If instead my life history for the time since the article had been simply "I was happily employed writing software", then I don't believe we would have dropped below 20 satoshi. It's easy to see in hindsight. If anyone can lend me a time machine, I'm sure I can get some condensed instructions which should improve performance significantly. Otherwise, just going to have more chalked up for the "character building" tally. So, lessons learned if you are the major buy support for your coin: you need long-term reserves. Whatever you put in bids can be taken out in a moment by a dump for no apparent reason. This is particularly true if you may be quitting your cushy, high-paying job and wandering around without income for an extended period of time. Rather obvious, but hey, maybe someone else can learn from my mistakes. If I'd been bidding as cautiously as I am now from the beginning, I think the price would probably be somewhere from 10-20 satoshi now instead of around 7 satoshi. It's especially unfortunate given that I wanted to be able to demonstrate the more consistent growth possible building a stable store of value, as opposed to the pump and dumps common in altcoins. And instead we had a pump-and-dump looking graph ourselves after I bid up higher than I was able to sustain, and a large (10+ nillion) instadump crashed the market all the way back down to 1 satoshi momentarily. We've had a few large (2+ nillion) dumps since, but nothing that large. We haven't generally had that large of bids though either. It's hard to know when I've exhausted the supply at a price level, when it sometimes waits for a couple weeks or even more and then fills all the bids at once. But I want to maximize the minimum price paid because I think that's important for building confidence in a store of value long-term, which is one of my core goals for NYAN. At the same time, we're still up from the lowest parts of the floor and where I found it. Since I own about 30% [g], the very cheapest supply has been taken off the market. I plan to keep on buying up "cheap NYAN" as much as I can. I've bought up to 60 satoshi before, I'll probably buy up that high this time around. I've got a token 100,000 NYAN ask at 300 satoshi; I hope never to sell lower. Conclusions Now I try to wrap it all together as if I saw this all coming and am the wise expert, despite having had about 90% drop in price in the last year after bidding too high. My original concept was taking the "minimum viable coin" and reviving it to a powerhouse as a textbook example in how to do it. Part of my core concept in this is the arbitrariness of value: throughout history, humans have chosen any number of things as a store of value for the time: salt, large rocks, certain metals, disks, marked sticks, and so forth. While there has generally been a certain logic in the choice, in that there is a locally restricted supply in one way or another, and so forth, from the perspective of other centuries or cultures the choices can seem quite strange. Growing up, I was always struck by how strange the notion of salt being limited and valuable seemed in a world where people were trying to reduce intake and large amounts could be bought for trivial sums. And yet, a key nutrient necessary for life fundamentally makes more sense as being valuable than notched sticks or printed paper or a piece of plastic with some encoded information. Humans have perpetually come up with stranger and stranger ways of storing and transferring value. Each new step, as always, comes with its own disadvantages and, frankly, has generally appeared nonsensical at best and fraudulent at worst to the status quo. Which doesn't mean that each new attempt is valuable. The gold bugs always like to point out that every fiat currency ultimately returns to its true value of zero. And the skeptics of cryptocurrency argue that all cryptocurrencies will eventually return to their true value of zero. It's certainly possible. And it's possible the USD will hyperinflate someday. I tend to try the moderate view for a plausible guess of the future. By that type of logic, I would guess that over the course of decades, USD will in general lose value, and cryptocurrency will tend to slowly gain value. That might not seem the moderate view, but USD not losing value over decades would be truly shocking. And hyperinflation has been predicted since the USD went off the gold standard, or before. So some amount of inflation less than hyperinflation seems like the safe guess (but then, the Titanic arriving would also have seemed like the safe guess to me). And with cryptocurrency, I think it's clear by now the technology will continue to survive. So my first question is with what overall value as a market? It could go down, of course, but that seems unlikely in an already small, young market. Even if all the current crop die off and are replaced, whatever cryptocurrencies are around should be able to do better than a handful of billion in market cap in my view. I believe that cryptocurrency has a bright future ahead of it. The best coins should ultimately survive and thrive. But I've been wrong on most of my major calls so far, like for instance when I thought BTC was over-priced around $5-$10. I think Nyancoin can have an important role to play in the future of cryptocurrency in the years and decades to come, but it's a massively speculative long-shot. See also Nyancoin risks document. But like Linus Torvalds' autobiography, I try to keep "Just for Fun" as a core motto and principle. It's makes for a good hobby project because there will always be more to work on, with a core community motto of TO INFINITY AND BEYOND! Disclaimers / Sponsorship: As I said before:

And I'll reiterate that I own about 30% [g] of the current supply of NYAN, which makes me by definition maximally biased. Also, I'm not sure what's up with the address from the first post. It doesn't show up in my current wallet as a recognized address. So, anyhow, don't send there. :-) If you'd like to donate, please consider sponsoring a coin-a-day or coin-a-week article. This is the first sponsored article. This Coin-a-Year article has been brought to you by spydud22 's generous patronage. I'd been meaning to do a Coin-a-Week article on Nyancoin for a while, but between wanting to "wait until the price recovered a bit" and general procrastination, then it seemed like it would make a good Coin-a-Year article, and then I wanted to wait until the price recovered a bit more...anyhow, so thank you spydud22, for causing me to finally do this. :-) Footnotes
[a] nyan.space/chain/Nyancoin ; as of block 1091430, 263738786.71890615 NYAN outstanding. This is slightly over 50% more than the last report, which is what we would expect, since it had existed for about a year then, and has approximately annual halvings. The first year generated about 50% of total supply; the second year generated about 25% of total supply. We should expect in a year to have about 17% (one-sixth) more than we have now.
[b] https://www.cryptopia.co.nz/Exchange?market=NYAN_BTC ; this is the only market reflected in coinmarketcap and it is the primary one on which I trade. Cryptopia also has other base pairs which operate at significantly higher spreads (lower bids; higher asks) and have minimal volume. In the time since the last report, NYAN has traded as high as 60 satoshi (and briefly a little higher at times), but over the last almost twelve months since a peak about a year ago, the price has been generally declining overall, as a gross oversimplification of a lot of movements. This has been an effect of me not being able to keep buying as much and there being large dumps I wasn't expecting from time-to-time. Now I'm taking the approach of building large (one or more nillion (million NYAN)) bids on each price as I slowly work my way back up again in order to be able to handle possible dumps with less price shock.
[c] coinmarketcap.com/currencies/nyancoin/ ; as noted in [b], this only reflects the /BTC basepair on Cryptopia but that's where most of the volume is anyhow. Of course, the market is also not particularly liquid since I'm the primary buyer and have rather limited means currently.
[d] I haven't setup a script to count this yet, among many things on my to-do list for someday, so I went through by hand from what was the then-latest block of 1091430 on nyan.space back to 1089766 which was the first block generated less than 24 hours before. There was actually a three and a half hour block gap at that point, such that the next prior block was about 24 hours and 15 minutes before 1091430 while 1089766 was only about 20 hours and 45 minutes prior, and has a disproportionate number of transactions and value compared to a typical block (8 and ~313,000 NYAN respectively) from the build-up during the gap. But since that gap conveniently started right about at the start of the 24 hour period, doesn't really skew our results here.
Note that there are often times where the UTXO created during one transaction during the day is spent during a later transaction in the day. This can be considered the "same" Nyancoin being "spent" twice in the same day in our total. But in practice, I believe what's happening here is the faucet is breaking off small (10-50 NYAN) pieces from a larger (~40,000 NYAN) chunk, and so that pops up a bunch of times. So the total NYAN blockchain volume as counted for this topline number should not be interpreted as "NYAN spent in the day" but "NYAN moved on the chain", where the "same coin" can move many times. So it's a very easily gamed metric and not a strong / resistant metric like the market price tends to be (at least relatively speaking), but it's a fun number to calculate and provides a little bit of information. The transaction count can also be easily inflated and certainly, for instance, having the faucet does generate transactions which are a very common transaction. And this is also just an arbitrary 24 hour period compared to a previous arbitrary 24 hour period. Nonetheless, I do think there's clearly a bit more activity on the Nyanchain, even though the typical block is still empty and the number of transactions and volume is still tiny compared to the major cryptocurrencies. Here's an arbitrary example of the faucet transactions Note the zero transaction fee, which I love that the miners support (the defaults are all quite low as well). Here's an example of what may be the smallest transaction by NYAN volume of the day; but no, I followed its small, spent output, and it led to this gem which also links to this. I have no idea what's going on here, but it's hilarious and I love it. How's that for microtransaction support? :-)
[e] Obviously Cryptsy went down. We had had more than enough red flags with Cryptsy (including one time where I was able to withdraw 6 nillion more than I had in my balance) and got onto Cryptopia. spydud22 basically accomplished that for us, although I helped out in the tail end of the campaigning.
[f] Our community is still small (I wish there were literally dozens of us!) but we've had valuable activity from multiple people, including, just as highlights, vmp32k who hosts nyan.space, a clone of the original nyancha.in, jwflame who created the excellent nyancoin.info intro site, with the awesome status page (which currently notes that "the last 500 blocks actually took 111 minutes, which is approaching the speed of light, causing the universe to become unstable"), KojoSlayer who runs the faucet and dice, spydud22 who got us on Cryptopia, and many other Nekonauts have made worthy contributions, and the Nekonauts mentioned have done more than just that listed. So while we are small, we are active at least from time to time and technically capable.
A Non-Comprehensive List of some Passive Beermoney Sites
Non-Comprehensive because it's certainly not a complete list; I'm sure there are more I don't know about! Hello fellow Beermoney earners! For the past few months I've been searching for ways to earn money passively (or as passively as possible). This guide will not cover any kind of Bitcoin/Dogecoin/etc. Mining, faucets, etc. Thus far, I would say I've been pretty successful. I'm not rich and I'm not making hundreds, but the methods I'll outline below are pretty much little/no effort beyond getting set up. I'll provide payment proofs to any of the methods below if you ask for them, if available. I will mention but not elaborate on the common/already well known methods, as we already get enough of that and I won't contribute to the spam. The following sites are in no particular order. I'll also happily answer any questions, but I ask that you at least explore the site and try to find things before asking me what to do. NOTE: I know I'm going to get at least one person saying "Not worth it, power bills, electricity, global warming, illuminati, etc. etc. etc.". I'd like to stop that person right here and tell them that yes, in theory, this could cost you more in power than it could make you. If you don't pay for your power, then it's irrelevant. If you DO pay for your power, then you can use these methods only when your computer would normally be on and the problem pretty much goes away. If your computer is always on anyways, only the CPU-renting methods will likely have any impact on your power bills (if any). I would rather not debate this. If you feel that it's not worth it, you're welcome to not try any of these. INTERNATIONAL NOTE: I believe that all of these except for Qmee, Perk TV and Bing Rewards, are international, at least partially. I could be wrong, and if anybody knows I'm wrong please let me know and I will make edits as necessary. eBesucher ---- Non-ref is a passive surfbar site, and one I've been using the longest. Simply open a surfbar tab and let it go. eBesucher also created a small program called the "Restarter" that will monitor your surfbar tab in whatever browser you choose and restart the browser if the surfbar stops (due to frambreakers, shitty site scripts, etc.). Other than that, it requires no input. Run this in whatever browser you don't use; it works in Firefox, Chrome, IE, and Safari. If you use Firefox, it also comes with an extension that will monitor your surfbar and give you double points when you hit a framebreaker site, but I've found it doesn't work as well as the Restarter at fixing the surfbar when you run over faulty scripts. eBesucher requires no attention checks and is 100% automated. You can also get a few cents for reading mails sent to your in-site Inbox (or actual email inbox if you choose). Minimum payout is 2 Euro, PayPal (and some others) accepted. Payout is manual. 4PTP ---- Non-ref is a Pay-to-Promote site, one of the only ones I've found that pays anything worthwhile. Simply send traffic to your link (however you'd like to do that, such as HitLeap (which I will mention below)) and you'll rack up points which convert to cash every 6 hours. Note that this site DOES accept traffic from traffic exchanges, etc., but be aware that your promote link is a very "intense" site; there's a lot of frames of activity and some traffic exchanges may not like that. Beyond Hitleap, it might take a few tries to find one that works. Minimum payout is $2, to PayPal and others. Payout is manual. NOTE: It is normal for a large amount of your traffic to not be counted. I don't know why this is, but it might be a side effect of traffic exchanges (or things like AdBlock, no java, etc.). Also NOTE: 4PTP might be rejected by Hitleap. If this happens, just wait a little while and try again. I had it rejected after working fine for almost a month, and I just resubmitted it a day later and it was fine. Ysear.ch ---- Non-refEDIT: They WILL eventually ban you if you don't use HitLeap premium, so if you don't have it, I wouldn't recommend this anymore. is a link monetizer (like Adf.ly). Shorten links, have people click those links, get money. Normally that would be a very slow process, but Ysear.ch works with Hitleap (again, I'll explain below). I want to note that while I and some others have been paid, you might end up banned, especially if you don't have a Premium Hitleap account so you can use randomized or directed traffic. Be aware of this. When using Ysear.ch for Hitleap, make sure your shortened ads are "Framed Banner", not "Interstitial" (under More Options, when shrinking your link). Payouts are automatic on the 6th of each month. I think the minimum is $2.50. Hitleap ---- Non-ref is a pretty well-known traffic exchange site, so I won't go too much into it (PM me if you need more info, though). Submit your link(s) from sites like 4PTP and Ysear.ch and run the Hitleap Viewer as often as possible to rack up minutes, which will automatically be spent on directing traffic to your links. I personally use 15 seconds for all of my links, but I imagine you could get away with 11 or 12; adding a few seconds helps make sure the site loads. Upgrading to Premium can be worth it, and lets you add more links and spoof the traffic source. Your choice. LinkCollider is another traffic exchange site. (Note: I didn't include a referral link because I don't think it matters unless someone buys something.) This one is a bit different from Hitleap, but works in pretty much the same way. Submit your links (up to 3), and then do activities such as autosurf, manual surf, "Like" FB pages, Retweet things, etc. to build up coins which are automatically spent on having your sites viewed, Liked, Shared, etc.. I personally turn off all social media for my links, since I'm pretty sure it will be wasted compared to just getting raw views to your website. The interface might be a little confusing at first, but it only takes a little exploring to get the hang of it. Qmee ---- Non-ref is very well known in this subreddit so I'll be very brief for the couple of people who might not know- Download extension, click ads that show up when you search on Google, Amazon, eBay, and Bing, and cashout to Paypal. No minimum amount. I have found that your earnings decrease over time if you click the ads and do not interact with them, and/or click a lot of ads for the same search. Try not to abuse the system by obviously searching for things you have no interest in, as I think the system is actually kind of smart and might pick up on that. I could be wrong though. This method is not 100% passive but requires very little effort. Slicify ---- Non-ref is a CPU rental service. Download their control panel (and Oracle VMBox, which comes with it) and your computer will automatically have its processing rented out. Save yourself the time and check that your computer can operate virtual machines (Slicify can help you determine this). You get paid for every hour your computer is being rented, from .01/hr and up. When your computer is being rented, it will likely take up a lot of memory and processing (though you can customize how much of your system's resources you're renting out) so if you want to do stuff like play games, turn this off while you're doing it. You can also set up a schedule so it will only run when you wouldn't be using your computer anyways. Minimum payout is $5, manually to PayPal. If you have access to multiple computers (I strongly recommend desktop only unless your laptop has excellent cooling/ventilation), you can run this on multiple machines. GomezPeerZone ---- Non-ref is another CPU renting application. You can run it concurrently with Slicify, though if both are going at once it will probably eat a lot of resources. A major note here is that you are not earning with GomezPeer from day 1. You have to be approved, and this takes an undetermined amount of time, during which you need to run the software and you lose your earnings each month. Once you do get approved, you'll earn automatically and get any earnings you made in the month you were approved. I believe payouts are automatic, to PayPal. You can also run this on multiple machines at once. MQL5 Cloud Strategy Testing Agent (no referrals as far as I know) is a minor CPU "renting" service. Download their program, sign up with MQL5, and then open up some testing agents (the download site will provide instructions). You won't make much with this, maybe up to 60 cents a month, but it is 100% passive, non-invasive, and takes up little/no resources. Payout is to Paypal, no minimum but it does take a small commission. You can run this on multiple machines. ScreenwiseTrends Panel (no referrals) is similar to Synapster in that it tracks your browser usage; this one is run by Google who is already monitoring everything you do and every piss you take anyways. You get $1 per week your computer is active (plus $.50 for a tablet and $.50 for a smartphone, if applicable) with the Chrome extension. Payout is at $25, so this is a slow earner. Like above, if you're not cool with being monitored like this, feel free to skip over it. Perk TV ---- Non-ref is a video-watching app similar to Swagbucks TV available on iOS and Android; Perk also has other apps you can use for rewards. This has gotten the rounds on the subreddit recently, so I'll be brief: Watch app trailers and earn points. PerkTV automatically loops the videos endlessly, no attention checks needed. Minimum payout is a $2 Amazon giftcard at 2500 points. There's a lot of other gift cards at the $5 level if you so choose. You can get $5 to PayPal for 9000 points but it is really not worth it. At all. Some would consider Apptrailers (iOS, Android) to be passive, if you don't mind pressing "OK" and "Play" every 30-45 seconds for half a cent each. I did do this for a while, like when watching Netflix, but I prefer the video apps like Perk TV and SBTV now. You're welcome to do this. Peko (iOS) is also passive, kinda-sorta. It's a weird little app that pays you to play a silly little game with people. You can idly spam the "Peko me!" emote in the Scramble Match room until you get "Peko'd", play the games, and then cash out at the minimum of $10. I did this a lot; cashed out about 6 times, and then got absolutely sick of it and stopped. I might pick it up again, but it's what I would consider passive in theory. Bing Rewards I also do Bing Rewards using a bot. If you don't know about Bing Rewards, check out the "Most Commonly Posted Beermoney Sites" sticky and sign up from there. It's not 100% passive, but it's close. The bot I use and recommend is "The BingR", made by a reddit user whose name escapes me, but it's an excellent bot that acts very human-like and even automates the daily bonus activities and mobile searches. Swagbucks I also also use the SBTV app and do the auto-running Swagbucks Activities on a second computer or browser (with Chrome, you can run the activity and then minimize out of the browser and it will still run; this doesn't seem to work with Firefox). If you don't know about Swagbucks, also check out the Sticky. This is also not 100% passive, but it pays pretty well. The auto-run activities have a white circle with a blue arrow and play button in the lower left-hand corner of the picture. These will run on their own and require no input beyond clicking. If you can't get them to run while minimized, you'll need to keep the window open with your mouse in the active part of the screen. I'm always looking for new passive income streams; the less work, the better! If you're going to recommend a surfbar, it can't require any attention checks and preferably it should run in-browser and not on top of windows like some require.
I've been trying to find an effective way to profit from small amounts of cryptocurrencies. I am a student and as such, don't have a lot of extra money to throw around and get into cryptos. I assume there many people who are just like me, want in but simply can't afford it. To that end, I began digging. I watched a lot of videos, read numerous posts and web pages and got bogged down in useless information. There was a lot of do this or that and you will find it easy to get into. Obviously most of it was just talk, or worse someone trying to make a quick buck off of someone else. Then I stumbled onto a video on YouTube. It was a way of using faucets and eobot to begin building enough to truly work with, without it taking years. The idea was solid, but I tweaked it a little so it could easily work for me and others. Basically, I use the faucets connected to coinpot. I have found 5 so far. 3 for bitcoin, 1 for litecoin, 1 for doge and one for dash. bonusbitcoin http://bonusbitcoin.co/?ref=59471E47569E bitfun http://bitfun.co/?ref=98A930B3CDF7 moonbit http://moonbit.co.in/?ref=b394c805326c moonlite http://moonliteco.in/?ref=b8aa0daa2e20 moondoge http://moondoge.co.in/?ref=f212df0fae11 moondash http://moondash.co.in/?ref=84DCF8C99A9A eobot https://www.eobot.com/new.aspx?referid=910461 Make sure you use the same email for all of them; this is important. The trick is, use the first one (bonus bitcoin) every 15 minutes. Under the claim button there is a link that says "change your claim settings". Check the box that says "always receive the average claim amount". If you do this, you won't get the 5000 but you will also get more that 45. As for the other 4, those build over time. But the longer you wait the slower it adds up. So I check those every 30 minutes. However, the moon faucets you can claim every 5 minutes and bit fun you can claim every 3. If I keep to this scheduled, I make 13,000 satoshi everyday. Then I send it to eobot. (there is a 1000 satoshi fee for withdraws under 50,000 satoshi.) It can take up to 48 hours to transfer, but once it does I exchange the satoshis for Cloud SHA-256 4.0 24 HOUR RENTAL. Mine your GHS. Every 2 days or so (depending on bonuses) you can withdraw your litoshi and doge. On days that all 3 hit my eobot account at roughly the same time, I convert everything over to the same currency (usually doge) and buy the 24 hour rental. Eobot also has its own faucet. Whatever you are mining when you claim it, is what it pays out. You will also get 1 doge everyday you log in. I have also put some of my earnings into cloud folding and cloud seti. These also work like a mining tool, though they only pay in cure coin and gridcoin. Both of which I can exchange for different coins, invest in GHS or simply let build. Well that's about the gist of it. If anyone has any questions feel free to ask.

I've compiled a list of faucets that I have been cycling over the past week, I wanted to confirm that they pay out before sharing and I have done quite well with them. They are all referral links but it took me bloody ages to put this list together so if you don't want to use them just don't click them. This list is actually more for my own benefit so its easier for me to cycle them in the minimum amount of time. I have a request though, if you have any faucets that I haven't included please add them below (use your referral link) and i will click them at least once daily None of these require you to make an account, just put in your wallet address, fill out the captcha and away you go. IMPORTANT: please make sure you use the same wallet address for every link or your satoshi will not stack. These 3 top ones go to an epay account which pay to your wallet address once a week if the balance is above 5800 (I think), these three alone seem to make me the most because they reset every 15 mins and I do them from my phone. Golds day CoinCollecting Starsbit Now below is the full list of other faucets that reset in the time given, I have added the minimum they pay out, usually the pay varies from 50 satoshi to 10000 satoshi depending on your luck.

Both of these require you to make an account. Put all of these together and you will have regular top ups to your bitcoin wallet.

Please add your own faucet links below, as long as it doesn't spam pop up ads at me i will click them regularly. Enjoy!
Allow any item to be used as currency (just means that any item can be traded between players for any other item)
Same universe for all players (like Eve Online)
Here's where things get difficult: Resource gathering and innovation. I was thinking that a certain resource, maybe gold could be mined, like Bitcoin. Now I'm off to eat supper and I'll be back with more ideas of how to spawn some type of innovation and how to design resource gathering of other types.
Interface to allow for bank creation.
Interface to allow for contracts (but allow for the breaching of contracts, players can form their own police organizations).
Destruction of others' real estate is permitted.
Most natural resources do not respawn.
Trees can be planted.
When a crafted item is destroyed, it's finite building blocks respawn somewhere in the universe. Say an axe that cost 5 iron to create gets broken, then 5 iron gets respawned inside the earth.
Food & water are resources that are required to be consumed regularly; otherwise, the player dies.
The penalty for dying is the following:
The player gets teleported to limbo for a fixed amount of time, say, 10 minutes. So as not to be too boring, he may fight other players who are also in limbo, and keep track of score e.g. how many kills he has in limbo. I think this is a pretty original idea I've come up with here and am pretty proud of it, tell me what you think :D While the player is dead, all items he carried on his person can be robbed.
NPCs may drop loot, but the loot may never be something that cannot be crafted.
The ability to innovate ways to gather resources. Skills can be "innovated," meaning, different ways to do a task such as gather water can be done in different ways. Hard to explain, so let me describe:
Skill that can be innovated: Gathering water. Attributes of skill that have the potential to be changed: Water carrying capacity ?/100 Quickness of transportation: ?/100 Chance of breaking down and spilling water over time: ?/100 The sum of these attributes total may never exceed 100. This is so that it's harder to achieve a monopoly. I may craft a small bucket out of iron with the attributes: Capacity: 50/100 Speed: 0/100 Chance of spilling: 10/100 Then I could place my bucket of water into the back of a truck to make up for the speed, else I'd be walking around with my bucket of water at a snail's space. Using different amounts of different resources such as plastic or wood would alter different attributes of the bucket. Apply this (very raw) concept to every craftable item. I think this works as innovation as players can to a certain extend innovate ways to gather the resource of water.
I've compiled a list of faucets that I have been cycling over the past week, I wanted to confirm that they pay out before sharing and I have done quite well with them. They are all referral links but it took me bloody ages to put this list together so if you don't want to use them just don't click them. This list is actually more for my own benefit so its easier for me to cycle them in the minimum amount of time. I have a request though, if you have any faucets that I haven't included please add them below (use your referral link) and i will click them at least once daily None of these require you to make an account, just put in your wallet address, fill out the captcha and away you go. IMPORTANT: please make sure you use the same wallet address for every link or your satoshi will not stack.
