  • Re: It's Expensive Using Bitcoin!

    @cmason

    @crimsonroze I believe this problem will soon manifest itself in a different manner, as bitcoin core will release an updated client with a dynamic fee model that might make the problem become irrelevant, just as well as it could make the problem become very urgent.

    Yes, I have read about that, but so far as I understand it, it's just an attempt to make fee calculation/estimation more accurate so that users don't inadvertently send out a transtion that will take 2 hours to confirm. I have had this happen myself, I assume Bitcoin-QT will pick the right fee, yet often it sends my transaction out for no fee. Great, except I have to wait longer than I expect.

    I don't believe the new floating fees will make much difference with respect to Counterparty, or, if anything, it might actually increase fees.

    We are not trapped, we have lots of options. I agree with you the new fee structure will cause tx fees to go up broadly

  • Re: LTBCOIN now trading on Melotic.com exchange

    Melotic is a new exchange that will be focusing on user created assets. They don't have a track record, but their lead (Jack Wang) came highly recommended, and after a few conversations with him about user created assets I was happy to endorse them as the first exchange to carry ltb

    Note that even if I didn't like them, I couldn't stop them.

  • Re: I just bought 1 LTBCOIN

    Yep, you can see the weekly inflation (most right column) here

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1GzytNblMx8xBmUczX7sPC8QitkJrrRirNrh2AJtjy1Q/edit?usp=sharing

    also, we're still waiting to give out a substantial portion of the LTBC created in the first 10% because people have not signed up with counterwallet addresses. Thats been sorta on my plate but I need to hand it off because I don't have time to track down everybody.

  • Re: why is there 0.000055 btc in my LTB account?

    Yep, you're right on Rob. You need a little bitcoin envelope to place your LTBCOIN change order.

  • Re: Display Ads on LetsTalkBitcoin.com!

    @robmitchell @steven on the list for today :) Yesterday got away from me, the term is a week and it'll start once you're up.

  • Re: It's Expensive Using Bitcoin!

    @doogy

    @william Seems like this is a tradeoff for using counterparty on the BitCoin blockchain... If these fees can't be controlled it could really make this project difficult in the long run. Theoretically, could LTBcoin be migrated away from counterparty to a different protocol, if needed at some point in the future?

    I was also going to suggest the delivery tax thing until I saw this idea which got me thinking. Do you mean you would move it to litecoin blockchain lets say for the sake of this argument? or where you thinking a different platform on the bitcoin blockchain?

    Not litecoin... But there is another

    [1:51:50 PM] :Matt: say i want to use swarm as a founder located in the us. is that possible? what limitations do i have as a us resident? how is the legal stuff handled, is swarm or the founding team responsible for it?

    [1:52:40 PM] Ben Ingram (SWARM Agent Wolverine): @adam… google cryptoequity

    you might be suprised

    [1:53:09 PM] Adam B. Levine: why does google have anything to do with it?

    [1:53:16 PM] Ben Ingram (SWARM Agent Wolverine): …just because a term makes sense and feels familiar, doesn’t mean it’s not new

    [1:53:18 PM] Adam B. Levine: being the first to market the term does not mean you invented the concept lol

    [1:53:36 PM] Ben Ingram (SWARM Agent Wolverine): see who brought the word into use

    [1:53:52 PM] Adam B. Levine: who cares?

    [1:54:02 PM] Adam B. Levine: the word has been used extensively

    [1:54:05 PM] Adam B. Levine: you did not invent it

    [1:54:23 PM] Adam B. Levine: You can say whatever you want though :)

    [1:54:30 PM] Ben Ingram (SWARM Agent Wolverine): oh really… try google… and show me

    [1:54:32 PM] Adam B. Levine: I just thought it was funny

    [1:54:54 PM] Adam B. Levine: try going to a bitcoin conference since december

    [1:55:07 PM] Adam B. Levine: what exactly do you think counterparty is supposed to do?

    [1:55:36 PM] Adam B. Levine: again, you can say whatever you want but are you really claiming you invented the concept?

    [1:56:44 PM] Adam B. Levine: I take it from the length of the posts, yes :)

    [1:56:50 PM | Edited 1:56:55 PM] Adam B. Levine: here comes the reason!

    [1:58:35 PM] Adam B. Levine: or not

    [1:58:43 PM] Ben Ingram (SWARM Agent Wolverine): did your mother not give you much love?

    [1:58:57 PM] Ben Ingram (SWARM Agent Wolverine): so hostile

    [1:59:01 PM] Adam B. Levine: no, I have a great relationship with my mother ;)

    [1:59:08 PM] Adam B. Levine: riight, thats the problem here :)

    [1:59:15 PM] Adam B. Levine: Ben you invented crypto-equity right?

    [1:59:24 PM] Ben Ingram (SWARM Agent Wolverine): no

    [1:59:26 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : Adam just spent a bit too much time on bitcointalk

    [1:59:28 PM] Adam B. Levine: your video made me think you did, so I'm trying to understand what you are saying

    [1:59:33 PM] Ben Ingram (SWARM Agent Wolverine): i did not

    [1:59:40 PM] Adam B. Levine: who on your team did?

    [1:59:46 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : I regularly claim to have invented cryptoequity

    [1:59:50 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : that's probably where Ben got it ;)

    [1:59:55 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : me me me me me

    [2:00:04 PM] Adam B. Levine: Cool, Joel - did you invent Crypto-equity?

    [2:00:11 PM] Adam B. Levine: Not do you claim, did you

    [2:00:31 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : yep, pretty much

    [2:00:32 PM] Ben Ingram (SWARM Agent Wolverine): no.. cryptoequity

    [2:00:33 PM] Ben Ingram (SWARM Agent Wolverine): one word

    [2:00:39 PM] Ben Ingram (SWARM Agent Wolverine): no fucking hyphen

    [2:00:53 PM] Adam B. Levine: Than you're good :)

    [2:01:04 PM] Adam B. Levine: Joel invented crypto-equity, and the world will know

    [2:01:19 PM] Adam B. Levine: why do you care about the hyphen? It's the way i've been typing it since november

    [2:01:23 PM] Ben Ingram (SWARM Agent Wolverine): no hyphen.

    [2:01:34 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : no no

    [2:01:38 PM] Ben Ingram (SWARM Agent Wolverine): whatever… thats two words

    [2:01:46 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : I invented "cryptoequity"

    [2:01:49 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : other people were doing crypto-equity

    [2:01:58 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : the difference is a mile wide and an ocean deep

    [2:02:00 PM] Adam B. Levine: who cares about the words

    [2:02:03 PM] Adam B. Levine: i'm talking about the concept

    [2:02:08 PM] Adam B. Levine: is that really your claim?

    [2:02:17 PM] Adam B. Levine: that you removed the hyphen and thus you INVENTED CRYPTOEQUITY

    [2:02:25 PM] Adam B. Levine: I dont think people are taking it to mean your removed the hyphen

    [2:02:32 PM] Adam B. Levine: it seems more like... You invented it

    [2:02:45 PM] Adam B. Levine: Why not say "We coined the term Cryptoequity"

    [2:02:59 PM] Adam B. Levine: Meet Cryptoequity: We made it up

    [2:02:59 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : yep

    [2:03:00 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : i did

    [2:03:02 PM] Adam B. Levine: ;)

    [2:03:23 PM] Ben Ingram (SWARM Agent Wolverine): who invented LTBcoin ?

    [2:03:27 PM] Adam B. Levine: cool, I misunderstood the video

    [2:03:27 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : pretty much

    [2:03:45 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : sometimes you fart out the exterior

    [2:03:49 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : and it turns into flame

    [2:03:56 PM] Adam B. Levine: I'm the catalyst for LTBCOIN, I wrote the papers, coined the phrase, designed the initial protocol and then welcomed a team to help me with it

    [2:04:08 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : at the very least it's good for a good laugh

    [2:04:12 PM] Adam B. Levine: but I dont claim to have invented cryptocurrency

    [2:04:17 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : but if there is something else flammable around...

    [2:04:18 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : watch out!

    [2:04:19 PM] Adam B. Levine: Right, I was just unclear

    [2:04:34 PM] Adam B. Levine: I didnt think you were being funny, I thought you were claiming ownership of a rather big idea that has been around since before you got into bitcoin in the first place

    [2:04:34 PM] :Matt: after swarm cryptoequity kinda took on a different meaning. while they may not have thought of the word, certainly they changed what it is and how people think about it as well as the number of people who think about it.

    [2:04:41 PM] Adam B. Levine: which is what the video looks like

    [2:04:51 PM] Adam B. Levine: maybe i'm wrong - anybody else in the chat want to weigh in?

    [2:04:55 PM] Adam B. Levine: am I crazy?

    [2:05:00 PM] Ben Ingram (SWARM Agent Wolverine): how do you know when i got into bitcoin?

    [2:05:21 PM] :Matt: seems fair enough to say that in a marketing video...

    [2:05:30 PM] Adam B. Levine: Didn't you say you got in last fall?

    [2:05:35 PM] Adam B. Levine: Sorry, when did you get in?

    [2:05:37 PM] Adam B. Levine: I know it was before joel

    [2:05:42 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : but it sucked

    [2:05:42 PM] Ben Ingram (SWARM Agent Wolverine): we invented the term CRYPTOEQUITY. full stop

    [2:05:49 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : like palm os

    [2:05:50 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : fuck

    [2:05:53 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : it seems like you could say the smart phone existed before the iphone

    [2:06:07 PM] Adam B. Levine: Thanks for the clarification ben, I have no problem with that

    [2:06:12 PM] Adam B. Levine: but I think the video is unclear

    [2:06:16 PM] Adam B. Levine: and intentionally so :)

    [2:06:24 PM] Adam B. Levine: which is fine, its just a style choice.

    [2:06:27 PM] :Matt: adam, i don't think you're crazy, but i think you're being a bit too literal with regards to a 50 second marketing video.

    [2:06:30 PM] Ben Ingram (SWARM Agent Wolverine): if you spend long enough on google you may find the term in some obscure post where… they forgot to use a hyphen

    [2:07:12 PM] Adam B. Levine: Ben... Does it not strike you as confusing to say "WE INVENTED CRYPTOEQUITY" as a statement unto itself? Does that make you think "we invented the term"?

    [2:07:38 PM] Adam B. Levine: Anyhow, my point is made

    [2:07:46 PM] Adam B. Levine: Proceed as you will!

    [2:10:28 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) removed Adam B. Levine from this conversation.

    [7/7/14 5:15:21 PM] Ben Ingram (SWARM Agent Wolverine): joel walked away from his computer… always lock your computer when you are absent kids

    [7/7/14 5:15:25 PM] Dave Allen: Eat was a tad opassive aggressive, even for Adam.

    [7/7/14 5:15:57 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : oh shoot, we lost Adam

    [7/7/14 5:15:59 PM] Dave Allen: *That was a tad Passive Aggressive, even for Adam.

    [7/7/14 5:16:25 PM] Ben Ingram (SWARM Agent Wolverine): by the way - it was ME who kicked him - via joels machine… heh heh - that will teach him to say ‘proceed as you will’

    [7/7/14 5:17:14 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : from Adam

    [7/7/14 5:17:24 PM] Joel Dietz (SWARM Agent X) : [7/7/14, 10:12:50 PM] Adam B. Levine: haha!

    [7/7/14, 10:12:53 PM] Adam B. Levine: awesome :)

    [7/7/14, 10:13:05 PM] Adam B. Levine: First time i've ever been kicked from a room, ethereum guys didnt even do that

  • Re: SWARM.XCP - Swarm Coin.

    @doogy

    @adam I had a very disheartening conversation with the swarm guys today that I think is relevant to this conversation

    http://pastebin.com/GeqN7NJm

    Is it just me or did that look like the transcript of a lunch period conversation at a high school cafeteria? Chances are, I wouldn't have been sitting at that table :) edit: maybe I should explain myself a bit, after re-reading it I feel it may be misconstrued. I just thought it was pretty piss poor how these guys just couldn't deal with the question out right and had to resort to taking shots.

    That was my impression. If you can't answer easy questions that have obvious answers, how are you going to answer hard ones?
