A Python Script for Live Bitcoin Price Ticker (Using Coinbase Pro Websockets)

Hi Everyone!
I've seen that people in this group have been interested in scripting and building simple things to interact with the cryptocurrency markets.
To help everyone out, I wrote up a brief script which will connect to the websocket for any major exchange and start streaming price data from the exchange.
It's so easy to do anyone could do it. All you need is Python and the ability to copy and paste code. Let's quickly walk through how we can get started.
Install Library
We will need to install the following library.
pip install shrimpy-python 
Once the library has finished installing, you can run this simple script to begin streaming live Bitcoin ticker data.
# import the Shrimpy library for free crypto exchange websockets import shrimpy # create the Shrimpy websocket client client = shrimpy.ShrimpyWsClient() # define the handler to manage the output stream def handler(msg): # multiple trades can be returned in each message, so take the last one ticker = msg['content'][len(msg['content']) - 1]['price'] print(ticker) # construct the subscription object subscribe_data = { "type": "subscribe", "exchange": "coinbasepro", "pair": "btc-usd", "channel": "trade" } # connect to the Shrimpy websocket and subscribe client.connect() client.subscribe(subscribe_data, handler) # disconnect from the websocket once data collection is complete client.disconnect() 
That's it! Let me know if you have any questions. You can find the documentation for these APIs here. I also wrote up a few example articles to provide more information:

WARNING: Don't use the "BTC-e Bitcoin (BTC) Live Ticker" extension from the Chrome Web Store, it hijacks BTC transactions from Coinbase (maybe more?)

Maybe this is old news to most of you, but I had the "BTC-e Bitcoin (BTC) Live Ticker" Chrome extension installed and it hijacked a Bitcoin transaction that I processed using Coinbase. I've already reported it for abuse with the Google Web Store and after talking with Coinbase support they say they've known about it for a week or so and have been reporting it, but Google has yet to take it down.
This is the extension to avoid:
There are similar extensions for other cryptos, not sure if they are malicious or not but I'm avoiding those as well.

Blockchain Bites: Dorsey Challenges Coinbase, Nasdaq Lists Diginex, Ethereum Miners Profit - CoinDesk

Blockchain Bites: Dorsey Challenges Coinbase, Nasdaq Lists Diginex, Ethereum Miners Profit
The Australian government is investing big in modern technology, Nasdaq saw its first crypto exchange operator listing and revenues are surging for Ethereum miners amid increased network activity.
Australia modernizes Australia will commit A$800 million (US$575 million) to invest in digital technologies as part of its coronavirus recovery plan, Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced Tuesday. The federal plan will see US$256.6 million for a digital identity solution, $419.9 million to fully implement the Modernising Business Registers (MBR) program, $22.2 million for small businesses training to utilize digital technologies and two blockchain pilot programs totalling $6.9 million. “The Plan supports Australia’s economic recovery by removing out-dated regulatory barriers, boosting the capability of small businesses and backs the uptake of technology across the economy,” Morrison said in the announcement.
Nasdaq launch Blockchain services firm Diginex has become the first crypto exchange operator to list on Nasdaq. The stock went live Thursday morning under the EQOS ticker symbol, a nod to the firm’s trading platform. CoinDesk’s Nathan DiCamillo reports Diginex’s back-door listing came through a merger with a special-purpose acquisition company (SPAC). Diginex CEO Richard Byworth said he expects a mix of global retail and institutional investors to buy shares. Over time, he expects the majority of Diginex shareholders to be U.S. investors because of the Nasdaq listing.
Dorsey responds Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted his disapproval of Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong’s mission statement to keep his company free and clear of politics. Dorsey argued that by the very act of being a crypto exchange, Coinbase was always already engaged in politics. “Bitcoin (aka ‘crypto’) is direct activism against an unverifiable and exclusionary financial system which negatively affects so much of our society. Important to at least acknowledge and connect the related societal issues your customers face daily. This leaves people behind,” Dorsey tweeted. Armstrong made waves this week – in and out of crypto – when saying Coinbase, and its employees, should keep work and activism separate.
Election predictions Putting stake to their claims, many crypto-political gamblers have cast their vote predicting who might win the contentious U.S. presidential election. CoinDesk markets editor Lawrence Lewitinn looked at the data following this week’s first presidential debate and found many are betting incumbent President Donald Trump will lose in November. While bettors on decentralized betting platforms like Augur and futures markets on FTX aren’t as bullish on the challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden, he does have the odds. “Thus what’s true at the time of publication can change on a dime. It is now fewer than five weeks until Election Day. Buckle up!” Lewitinn warns.
Mining profits HIVE Blockchain has reported its best-ever quarter, as the mining firm raked in record fees from the frenzied activity in decentralized finance (DeFi) over the summer. The Toronto-listed mining company released its unaudited results Thursday, saying it mined a total of 32,000 ether (ETH) and 121,000 ethereum classic (ETC) in the second fiscal quarter ending Sept. 30. Per CoinDesk’s price data, that comes to nearly $11.8 million for mining ether, and a further $664,000 for ethereum classic – approximately $12.4 million at time of writing. The figures represent a near 30% increase from the 25,000 ETH that HIVE mined in the first quarter and a 50% increase in the same quarter in 2019.
Stealth launch In the latest effort to smooth a path for buttoned-up investors, Talos, an institutional-grade conduit to the crypto ecosystem, is emerging from stealth mode to serve brokers, custodians, exchanges and over-the-counter (OTC) trading desks. The platform started out in 2018 and is backed by an impressive list of investors including Autonomous Partners, Castle Island Ventures, Coinbase Ventures and Initialized Capital. Over the past year or so, Talos has been quietly onboarding a core group of capital market participants, so that the platform can make its debut in a revenue-generating state.

What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin (₿) (ticker BTC)is an open source cryptocurrency. It is a decentralized cryptographic currency without a central bank or single administrator in control that can be sent from user to user on the peer-to-peer bitcoin network without the need for 3rd person in between like bank, or payment processor or institution all transaction processing and verification is carried out collectively by the network.

Why Bitcoin is the future?

Bitcoin emerged in 2009 as more economies across the world started losing trust in the current banking model. Institutions that have been around longer than ourselves have changed very little throughout our lifetime. Not only does the lack of trust, and stagnant change of banks allow Bitcoin to thrive, but also the possibility of eliminating inflation. Bitcoin saw the opportunity to take the power out of the institutions and provide a better service, and the people responded. Bitcoin operates universally, meaning for the first time, there is a possibility of a global currency. With truly international currency possibilities for global economic growth, social equality, self-sovereignty is endless.

Why Bitcoin and not others?

It is a very good question, there at the moment of writing over 2000 projects and “coins” that emerged after Bitcoin. Many of them claim to be faster, better and more flexible than Bitcoin however very few have withstood the test of time or delivered their proposed product. The basic fundamentals of Bitcoin’s principle monetary policy are unprecedented, and by now, it is impossible to replicate its level of decentralization or network security, which is powered by a computer network as powerful as almost 12 trillion Intel Core i7 processors. Bitcoin also has the largest social / community strength. I would HIGHLY advise against investing or getting dragged into any project that claims superiority, I have single rule : if it says it's better than Bitcoin then its what we call “scam-coin” you will only get pulled in and lose your bitcoin/usd value causing a lot of pain and sadness . Sit down, read, learn and be patient, you will not miss out on anything over night and if something is rising in price quickly most likely it will crash as fast.

Does bitcoin have an applicable use in daily life or is it only for holding for future gains?

Bitcoin has taken over the cryptocurrency market. It’s the largest and most well-known digital currency today. Many large companies are accepting Bitcoin as a legitimate source of funds, you can use your Bitcoin at but not limited to : KFC, Burger King, Microsoft, AT&T , Expedia, Subway, Twitch, Virgin Galactic and many more just look it up. You can look up merc and services at So if you are living abroad, you can use your bitcoin just like any other known currency in addition there are Debit cards in collaboration with VISA network offers that are backed by Bitcoin making you able to pay with it anywhere in the world just with a swipe or tap.

As Lebanese in Lebanon, how can I buy or sell bitcoin ?

In Lebanon unfortunately we can not use our banking system to purchase bitcoin, there was a time where an UAE based exchange was accepting Lebanese Cards, till it was stopped but give it a try we weren’t able to confirm all cards.
Therefore most common way to buy bitcoin in lebanon is using P2P which is person to person exchange, this can be through an international website such as or , all you gotta do is find a sell offer initiate transaction with seller , send him his payment using WesterUnion or Moneygram and once the seller receives payment your bitcoins will be released but make sure you use escrow service which ensures safety of your transaction therefore bitcoins you are buying are frozen for the seller and he can not retrieve them unless you fail to pay or run out of time window to pay. Another p2p way is through local bitcoin communities , there are plenty of traders willing to exchange with you however always ask for the reputation of the seller inside a group and never respond to private messages unless it is a confirmed reliable trader just to avoid losing and being scammed. Feel free to find out more about how to buy in Lebanon at

If I have a bank account outside Lebanon, can I use bitcoin to transfer money from Lebanon to my bank account outside?

It is possible to transfer Bitcoin to an international account in the USA or EU for example, you would need to use recognized exchanges such as and many others. It would be as simple as sending BTC to your coinbase account, converting to USD and withdrawing it to your account. However you must take few precautions, if you are sending a significant amount of BTC and converting it to USD you will need some kind of proof that these funds are yours otherwise you might get investigated for money laundering. So is it convenient to send ? I do not think so, if you managed to get what we call now in Lebanon “ Fresh USD” it would be much less of a hassle to simply initiate an international transaction.

Why would I want to send Bitcoin to my family or friends in Lebanon ?

This is where I believe BTC can shine for us, you can use exchanges as coinbase,kraken or any prefered place to purchase some bitcoin that can be transferred to your family wallet within minutes. Your family or friends can exchange bitcoin or part that is needed with local traders to LBP at desired exchange rate therefore you are not forced to exchange at rates given by WesterUnion, after which they will be able to do their daily purchases and mitigate inflation rates to some extent. You can send as little as $1 and the transaction costs less than $1 for any amount.

Why is the Bitcoin price so volatile ?

Indeed it can be, sudden swings of 20% both ways are considered normal if you look at daily data, however bitcoin since 2009 had only one trend which is upward, 80% chance is if you bought BTC at any moment in past 2 years is that you are on break even or positive not loss. Feel free to try this exercise by going to

Should I invest?

NO. Now since we got the short version of this, let me elaborate. By the end of the day it is a new class of an asset, the price is still in the discovery phase and it could cause a lot of pain and sleepless nights if you invest more than you can chew to possibly lose. No one can advice you what to do with your money and how to position them, however i highly encourage to read, educate yourself on money before investing in BTC a good start would be Please ask more knowledgeable bitcoin users and double check sources , once you feel confident enough that you understand this monetary system you can try dipping your toes with small amounts and build your position from there. Just stay away from quick gains schemes such as “online mining” “cloud mining” and anything that offers 100% returns in a very short time, if it's too good to be true then it's a scam.

Scams, BE AWARE.

Due to our difficult situation we are being targeted by constant advertisement of potential new solutions using “newly developed cryptocurrencies“ , unfortunately such new technology does not exist and they are trying to take advantage of us by promising fake solutions.
Even Bitcoin can not provide you with a solution to your hard worked money being inaccessible in any Lebanese bank.
Here are few typical scam msgs:

Will you collude with your boyfriends at Kraken, Coinbase and Binance and steal the ticker from Amaury?

Happy Tipping Tuesday! Now that this sub is the main Bitcoin sub in terms of activity, it's time for everyone to get some Education and some free Bitcoin. Post here and get free bits! Bitcoin Cash will defeat the legacy banking oligarch system!

As someone who cares about Liberty and freedom, I have instinctively understood the importance of Bitcoin for spreading economic freedom across the globe. Being sick of the legacy too-big-to-fail central bank fiat bailout scam systems where they print the money from thin air, I saw Bitcoin as a tool that can really liberate humanity and help us reach our ultimate potential. The fact is economic freedom improves this world, and the stakes are very large. We are fighting an oligarch banking system that prints money out of thin air, holding back humanity's potential with their scam system that only works to enslave and not liberate humanity. In the past people fought for liberty and gave their lives on bloody battlefields. Today we fight troll wars on social media, but the stakes are quite similar, if not multiplied in this new technological age. By supporting Bitcoin and Satoshi's vision of a worldwide honest cash system, its one of the only ways to help lift humanity up to our ultimate limitless potential. The oligarch's saw this threat which is why we are under heavy attacks. They stole Bitcoin and the ticker, and crippled the system with high fees, unreliable transactions, and Trojan horse tech, but Bitcoin Cash adapted, survived, and lives on as the common sense continuation of the money ledger. It turns out that its not so easy to stop an idea whose time has come.
Bitcoin Cash is the true Bitcoin that follows Satoshi's vision of common sense and on-chain scaling. BCH is The Manifestation of the Honey Badger. Trolls will point to market cap and say BCH is losing and not the real Bitcoin. However they fail to understand the nature of the war we are fighting. Bitcoin is all about breaking oligarchy, as nChain's paper explains. We are fighting against a banker oligarch takeover of Bitcoin. Since they print money from thin air, they have us outgunned when it comes to market capitalization/price. This is what the trolls do not understand. To think that the oligarch bankers that control the money monopoly would not try to attack the Bitcoin system would be naive. It appears they have pumped the BTC-Core price to outrun Bitcoin Cash the real Bitcoin as soon as their trojan segwit tech was deployed. They likely will use segwit, strangled blocks, and Lightning Network as the strangler fig to usurp the system changing it to fiat legacy banking system 2.0. What they don't want people to realize is that Bitcoin was always the underdog against fiat systems. Just because they usurped the name and BTC ticker for their fiat 2.0 system it does not mean they are winning the war. Its a clever tactic sure, but BCH is still the #1 cryptocurrency by market cap in the world, they have shifted some shells around in trickery, but Bitcoin-BCH is still fighting as the underdog against the oligarchs as it always has.
Not only this but the numerous problems in Lightning are acting as a bottleneck for development on Core. All this while BCH development is soaring with things like,, cashshuffle protocol, chainbet protocol, SLP token protocol, colored coins, tokeda, and much more. Now that we have solved the scaling issue we can finally build again. All this while numerous services like Dell, Steam, Reddit, Rakuten, Stripe, Circle, Microsoft, Fiverr, Satoshidice, Changetip, Expedia, and many more stopped accepting Bitcoin Core, while Coinbase, Bitpay,, satoshidice, tippr,, dark web all are adding BCH support.
They thought they could use censorship to shut us up. But now we are seeing that free speech is more popular than censored cult subreddits. We are battling some powerful oligarch interests. But they have vastly underestimated the spirit of the Honey Badger. There is a reason there is so much COINTELPRO trolling and dirty tricks being done to Bitcoin Cash and its supporters. There is a reason they need to use vote manipulation, shaming and bullying tactics, censorship, and dirty tricks to try to get us to shut our mouths. The truth is they are terrified of Bitcoin Cash and Satoshi's vision, which is why they need to use such tactics. They are doing whatever they can to pen the Honey Badger up in sheer desperation and terror that it will soon break loose ripping them limb from limb and devouring them whole.
I would like to mention that the recent turmoil in the BCH community over a November fork with different factions fighting each other is on a lot of people's minds. Some newbs may also be wondering about what is going on. They may be falling into the Fear Uncertainty and Doubt that is being pushed by a lot of Core trolls, as well as some genuine members of the BCH community. I would like to point out that these disputes are actually healthy. We don't want a system where one person or group controls things. We want a system where people are fighting for control. Its an economic incentive system with different factions competing. This is what keeps Bitcoin robust and was the genius of Satoshi's design. We don't need to worry about the troll wars because we have Nakamoto consensus as the whitepaper says:
They vote with their CPU power, expressing their acceptance of valid blocks by working on extending them and rejecting invalid blocks by refusing to work on them. Any needed rules and incentives can be enforced with this consensus mechanism"
Miners will decide what to support and the community should respect it. Many prominent BCH miners are also meeting in the next days to have a discussion on how to proceed with the protocol in November. The miners have put in their work and investment and have earned their right to vote on new rules. Most of us trolls have not, we are simply picketing outside the polling booth trying to influence how miners vote. They may care what the community thinks, but at the end of the day, Bitcoin is about self-interest, so they may also not necessarily care what the community thinks. Bitcoin was never designed as a democracy 1user 1 vote system as people like Core and Andreas Antonopoulos think. We should celebrate the fact that BCH has many competing implementations, compared to Core's centralized coin with BlockStream Gatekeepers. We also have miner groups challenging developers. Since the system was designed for miners to vote, this is obviously much healthier than developer dictatorships. Miners have much more skin in the game and are incentivized economically to make the right decision. Often times people forget Bitcoin is an economic incentive system.
So after getting a little bit of education, the point of this thread is to post and get free bits, especially for newbs that want to try Bitcoin for the first time. BlockStream admits BTC-Core is not for everyone. But we have news for them, BCH is for everyone!.
Post here and get some free bits. Bits is the historical unit for Bitcoin, but it also went extinct from the high fees on BTC-Legacy. Bits can only be feasible on BCH the real Bitcoin with low fees, it just doesn't work on Bitcoin-Legacy anymore. Coinbase and Bitpay had adopted bits before the fees killed it and my hope is they will embrace it for BCH again. There are 1 million bits in a BCH. If newbs have any questions please feel free to ask in the thread as well and get advice on anything, from potential coin splits, to how to use the tip bot, and withdraw to your own wallet, or other aspects about why Bitcoin-BCH is good, and why Bitcoin-BTC is so bad.
Reddit usage for tippr directions are here:
Information on chaintip the other tip bot is here:
I suggest using the wallet for withdrawing BCH because they have BCH as default. You may also want to try the Bitpay wallet, which has some added features like a shapeshift button to change your btc-segwits into Bitcoin-BCH ( has this as well), as well as an amazon button to purchase amazon gift cards instantly in the BitPay app using Bitcoin. And there is a bitcoin BitPay debit card option in the app as well.
In the BitPay wallet you will need to add the BCH wallet as a second wallet as its not there by default. So press the + symbol and create new personal wallet, then choose coin BCH and back it up.
If you need to change between legacy and the new cashaddr format then use this tool:

I'm wondering if anyone else would be interested in this?

So a little background here. I am a programmer by trade (I also own an arcade called 1984, but that isn’t overly relevant). I decided to jump into the whole cryptocurrency thing since 1) I just enjoy reading about things, 2) I keep hearing the phrase “blockchain” and it was time to get up to speed on that, and 3) some outfit in the same building as my office has put together some crypto coin offering.
Obviously I’m fascinated with bitcoin now, not only as a currency but as a technology, and I bought in, a little, at about 9400. As it turns out it’s fun to check the current asking price and see how things are going and so on…. Except that I began to get a little nervous about leaving my balance just sitting there in Coinbase, so I moved it to Electrum on my desktop. Then I got a little nervous about THAT and ordered a hardware wallet, which should show up in a day or so. But this causes a problem!
Without my balance sitting in Coinbase, there’s no easy way to check what my bitcoin is actually WORTH. I can watch the trade numbers go up and down, that’s fun, but I have to pull out my calculator and type in a bunch of numbers to get what my USD value equates to. And being the greedy bastard that I am, I want to know that amount.
I found a link to an online calculator ( that lets you type in your amount and it automagically shows you what your current USD value is, but you have to type the numbers in every time you want to check. There’s no instant gratification to it.
What I wanted was an app that I could type my current bitcoin amount into, and it would pull down the latest trading numbers and show me on the fly what my current USD value is. The next time I launched the app I wanted it to remember what my bitcoin amount is. I did NOT want it connected to any kind of wallet, for security reasons and lazy reasons. Better still if I could watch the fluctuations, like a ticker.
I looked around for an app, and while I found a number of ticker apps, there didn’t seem to be anything that did what I wanted. So I wrote one. The screen shot is it running on Xcode’s iPhone simulator.
My questions are: would anyone else be interested in this? Should I take the time to submit it to the Apple Store, move the code over to Android, etc, or should I just slap a development provisioning profile on it and let it only live on my phone? I also have a desktop version running, both in OS X and Windows. Would anyone be interested in that?

Bitcoin encourages actual saving, something most of the population desperately needs. For the first time, I'm actually enjoying saving my money.

For the first time in my life, I'm excited about saving.
I bought another two bitcoins today: It felt good. I've never felt that way about transferring money to a savings account or buying shares of a stock. Why?
Putting money in a savings account has always felt wrong to me, even before I understood the stupidity of the math behind it. Those dollars are earning the interest equivalent of being inside a mattress, and are getting weaker each year through inflation. And if/when hyper inflation shows up, forget about your pathetic savings accounts.
Real estate is out. I'm still laughing about my ex getting the house in the divorce, only to have her get wallet raped when they immediately tripled her property taxes (nearly doubling the mortgage).
The stock market or funds then seems the only logical choice for someone who wants to save. But you know what's not exciting? Buying stocks at all time market highs. Even if it turns out to be the mathematically correct decision down the line, the threat of losing your investment or the worry of the ticker destroys any feel good feelings you have. Buy and hold (for forty years) is dead. If you don't believe me, invest in the railroads, like daddy always did. And we're not even addressing concerns about the underlying currency the market is built off of.
After all of my financial study, until bitcoin, I determined the only reasonably viable 'fire-and-forget' way to save funds in our modern world was technology ETFs. That's a pretty good way to save money, but bitcoin is even better.
We have already reached the tipping point. In a matter where faith is the principal behind which value rises, faith in bitcoin has surpassed the critical amount needed for superadoption. Now we just need time.
When I buy a piece of bitcoin, I feel like I'm buying land or a hot dot com domain in the nineties. Something precious that they're not making more of. Bitcoin is that and more, because it could reasonably scale to the space age and beyond. Dollars, gold, and land won't do that.
In 200 years, when you need to send money to Mars colony, what will you do? Send bitcoin. It's a reasonable future, and it's the only currency we have that has that promise and potential.
When space mining ramps up, all precious metals will rapidly become worthless. The 6000 year old bubble will come crashing down. When the next plot to save the value of fiat comes about (because they will inevitably need to raise interest rates or face QE infinity) then there is a good chance that people will look to put their assets in something that can't be created out of thin air. We already know what that something is.
The blockchain 🔗 is here to stay, and will be used to store information for thousands of years. It can't be expanded, no matter how far consciousness or the economy expands. It is limited to 21 million bitcoins, which then can be broken down to individual satoshis, but that's it. If you own a bitcoin, you own a piece of the future.
To the paid trolls who will invade my topic, go right ahead. I just hope you take some of what your masters are paying you and buy some bitcoins with it. Because deep down, we both know the truth.
And for the trolls that aren't being paid, I truly feel sorry for you. Because you are the ones who are dedicating your life to proving the world is flat, and crying for those who claim otherwise to be burnt at the stake. And the world will eventually eat your dust, and life will go on without your resistance to change. Because that's how the universe works.
I was already one of 21 million by owning a whole coin (the concept of which will seem ridiculous in fifty years... An average person controlling an entire bitcoin? You could only wish!). The next step? Becoming one of 2.1 million, by hitting ten coins.
I'm saving my money. And it feels good. I wish the same feeling to everyone else.
edit: Just put my money where philosophy is: Sent 0.10 bitcoins through Coinbase as gifts to my five best friends/family. Now five more people are part of the future, before it even arrives.
2nd edit: My brother just accepted the 0.10 bitcoins and set up a Coinbase account. Now he is excited about buying and dealing in bitcoin. Not a big deal? I love my brother, but he lives in small town America and refinishes furniture for a living. He is in his forties. He is not technologically savvy. But he is learning about bitcoin, and is excited about it. All the Fox News he has watched has primed him not to trust the government, and he just found something he can rally behind. News Corp just shot itself in the foot. He won't be refinishing furniture for too many more years at this rate. Now he is saving his money, something he has never done before.

Hello Vertans! Here is my instructive tale about my first 'green' steps.

So hello fellows!
*Long story short: * I started to use Crypto currency in the mid '13. Bitcoin was around 200€. Tried mining (CPU, GPU), setting up a full node on a company server :) Lived trough the hype with the BTC rising around 900€ in November 2013. Then after it becomes falling. I lost interest in the crypto world. Fast forward to now:
*I have purchased my first Vertcoins! Yeeeeah! *
Im working for a laarge IT companywith full of geeks. Started to talk about BTC and it was all over the news. So i was back in the business :) Looked at BTC... Holly SSs... After a while started researching and found out that lots of Altcoins are wort nothing. I mean value, not m00ney! I ended up here.
My reasons are:
How i brought my coins: Opened a Coinbase account some time ago and purchased BTC via SEPA transfer. I saw how “bad” is the BTC situation I decided to use some altcoin, and my research took me here!
1st try: the big loss: Open shapeshift web > Select BTC – VTC in precise mode. There is a ticker with time, starting from 5 minutes and counts down. So I send my BTC to the given address, specify my VTC and returning address. Then wait…. The time was Fucking over, no VTC, transfer pending somewhere in the network. Later that day: I received my money back to coinbase account. I payed 2X the fee, so was short in around 18€
2th try: Did research on the BTC network load. At the 1st try it was overloaded then newer before. So I looked it today early morning. The chart was low, transactions fee was kinda ok. So I did coinbase > shapeshift (quick) > VTC!
My todo for the Vertcoin community:
See ya!

Does anyone send ETH to them ?

Arcade Token ($ARCD) sale is now live. Pre-sale rate ends tomorrow Nov 30 @ 11:59pm PST.
Hello folks, last update before our public token sale "officially" begins December 1st. The announcement post with full details goes live early on December 1st. As one of our earliest mailing list subscribers, we wanted to give you one last chance to participate in our Arcade Token pre-sale if you haven't already.
Last night we deployed our live token sale contract to the Ethereum mainnet. It's tested and works great. You can see initial transactions here. Video of the deployment here. Code on GitHub here and verified on Etherscan here. Blog post introducing the token economics is here.
The pre-sale ratio is 285,000 Arcade Tokens per 1 ETH. Compare to 200,000 for the public sale.
As we also said on Twitter here, we have decided out of an abundance of caution to switch the planned ticker symbol of the Arcade Token from ATX to ARCD. There is a barely-used coin called Artex ($ATX) that may cause issues with some exchanges with strict policies about ensuring no conflicts in ticker symbols. We have selected the ARCD symbol, which is unused by any other crypto project.
You have one last opportunity for pre-sale rates, expiring November 30th at 11:59pm PST:
Make sure your wallet can handle ERC-20 tokens (NOT Coinbase or similar exchange). We recommend MyEtherWallet or MetaMask.
Any ETH you send to our token sale address (again, ONLY from a wallet like MEW or MetaMask that supports ERC-20 tokens), you will receive Arcade Tokens immediately to the same address you sent from.
Any transactions received to the sale address (0x7ef8873220958Ea400d505a9C92D6ae24F34D55E) before November 30 at 11:59pm PT will receive Arcade Tokens at the pre-sale rate. TOKEN SALE ADDRESS: 0x7ef8873220958ea400d505a9c92d6ae24f34d55e From the smart contract you will automatically receive tokens at a ratio of 200,000 Arcade Tokens per 1 ETH to the same address you sent the ETH from.
Separately we will manually transfer you this week an additional 85,000 Arcade Tokens per 1 ETH, to bring you to the pre-sale rate of 285,000 Arcade Tokens per ETH. (For simplicity's sake, the smart contract has one rate for the entire sale.)
If you do not send your transaction before the pre-sale cutoff time, you will only receive the public (non-presale) rate of 200K tokens per 1 ETH.
To see the balance of your Arcade Tokens, just add to your wallet the token address (not the above sale address) 0xb581e3a7db80fbaa821ab39342e9cbfd2ce33c23, symbol ARCD, and 18 decimals, and you will see the ARCD in your account. (Screenshot below of ARCD in my MetaMask wallet -- the first live test transaction.)
I hope all that is clear. If anything is unclear, you can post any questions in our global community Facebook group Arcade City Square, or just wait until our new blog post and token sale webpage go live on Friday, as those will include more detailed instructions.
Best regards,
P.S. Check out what early Bitcoin investor and hedge fund legend Michael Novogratz said at yesterday's Consensus: Invest conference about how to value a decentralized ridesharing token.
P.P.S. We have begun organizing our Arcade City "Builders" in a new invite-only Slack channel. If you want to join, respond to this email for an invitation. Please tell us your background with Arcade City and how you can contribute to building Arcade City in the future.

Interview with Inventor about PoWH3D

Hello Internet,
So I am basically completely new to this whole crypto thing. I set out to learn a little about it and one project I stumbled upon seemed very interesting to me. After joining their discord, I got a chance to PM with someone on their dev team and do a little interview. I thought I would share it with everyone here, as I'm sure they have similar questions.
The project is called PoWH. It stands for Proof of Weak Hands. It grabbed my attention at first because it kinda has this whole meme-speak kinda feel, which made me think of Dogecoin. Reading on their page and watching the chats in their discord made me intrigued as to what it all means. They talk about simulated markets, pyramids, 3D currency, PoS and Masternodes, hybrid economic systems, self inflating and deflating currency, and all sorts of things I know nothing about.
I recommend looking at it for yourself and forming your own opinions. At the bottom of this interview I'll post my link to their site. Check it out. Without further adieu, here's my interview with a person from their team who goes by the discord handle "Inventor"

--1) What is a "3D Cryptocurrency"--

3D = 3 dimensions of economic product distribution, PoWH3D is a simulated economic model. All economies have an output, let's call this economic product. In our system, this product is distributed in three ways. That creates a hybrid model, and that's where the 3D part comes from.
So the first dimension or form of distribution follows the socialist economic model. We call this our passive income. In socialism, everyone in an economic system has invested to create the whole system, and so everyone deserves some of the economic product derived from that system. When a user buys P3D tokens, even if they never do anything with them, they receive passive income in the form of dividends.
The next layer or second dimension or second form of distribution follows a labor based economic model. In a labor based economy a person only receives a portion of economic product based on the amount of work they do. We call this our active income. So in PoWH3D, to earn active income someone performs the work of marketing, aka putting their referral link out there on the internet. Since they are performing work that's bringing new economic product into the system, they are directly paid a portion of that product.
The 3rd dimension or layer of distribution follows the capitalist economic model. Capitalism is the idea that you make or lose capital off of investments. We call this our investment income. P3D can be played just like any other cryptocurrency in a capitalist sense by trying to earn profit via buying low and selling high.
So I think it's really exciting being part of a project that's trying to bring something new to the cryptosphere. Right now virtually every cryptocurrency out there only has 1 dimension of play, the capitalist aspect. Which creates a system very dependent on hype and fud. Usually centralized around a single body, that currencies development team. Part of the whole purpose of crypto is to create decentralized systems, where the success of each one of those systems is in the hands of its users (decentralized). By adding in two extra dimensions we really incentivize growth based on the actions of users.

--2) What is P3D?--

So the name of our product in long hand is Proof of Weak Hands 3D. Short of that would be PoWH3D. Now in crypto everyone needs a ticker symbol. So P3D is our ticker symbol, or the name of our coin. Proof of Weak Hands 3D = the name of the project. P3D = name of coin.

--3) Why should I be interested in this?--

I think that really depends on the motivations of the individual. For the vast majority of people, I think it could act as stable and safe place to park their crypto. For others that are looking for a more aggressive return on investment this could be attractive due to the potential for active income. And last for investment speculators (capitalist) that realize the potential growth of this due to psychological factors created by our PoS/Masternode system, this would be a great thing to get in on. Lets elaborate for the mass majority first.
The speed of crypto moves insanely quick. A lot of people have lives and jobs and can't be bothered to check news on their crypto investments every 30 minutes. For people looking for a long term place to park their coins, this would be a great project. This is mostly due to the passive income earned. It's kind of like having a savings account. If you were saving up your fiat currency, you wouldn't keep it in a checking account that earns no interest. Instead you would stick it into a savings account, or CD, or something that offers a return. Although the earnings off this are not of a guaranteed or constant rate, but instead dependent on volume and activity, they are still likely to exceed what you would get from a traditional savings or CD account.
For the second category of people there is not a whole lot to elaborate on. The marketing system of referral links offers them, the ability to control their own income based on the amount of labor they do getting their referral link out there. I think what makes our system more interesting for marketers like that, is that they can withdraw their ETH earned at anytime. The pay is instant. The moment someone uses their reflink and buys in, they receive their referral bonus (ETH).
Our last group, the investors, so people who like to make their money off trading crypto (capitalist/traders) currently in the cryptosphere kind of live in a nightmare of extreme volatility. There are rapid swings up and down, and the market is open 24/7. This makes something like taking a shower, eating dinner, or spending time with your family, let alone sleeping for 6-10 hours, kind of a nightmare cause your worried about your crypto holdings. Also they trade on exchanges where price is controlled by an order book. Such a system is very easy for whales (very rich people) or group market psychology, to manipulate with buy and sell walls. Our system mechanics change all this, and I think capitalist (traders) would find our it attractive because our price is controlled by an algorithm, making planning entry and exit of a position more predictable.
Any traders worst nightmare is buying at an All Time High (ATH) and then experiencing a crash afterwards. Although that could happen in our system, instead of being stuck holding bags (holding coins that are no longer worth what you paid for them), until a new ATH is attained, a person playing this from the trader aspect could shift focus to marketing. This would allow them to receive active income to offset/recoup losses from the crash. It also could help the currency value grow back up to or above the ATH they entered their position in. So for traders, this has a built in security blanket, in that fashion.
Ultimately I will just close this part by reminding people that this is just a simulated economic model. To be played as a game. There is no promise that your going to earn off this. It's a system where, yes, that is possible, but it all depends on how you play it. Like any closed loop economic model, some players win, and some players lose. This is just more attractive than other models, because it gives you more ways to play.

--4) Why not just start with Bitcoin or another established cryptocurrency?--

2017 and before were the years of Bitcoin. All the huge gains to made off BTC have likely already happened. The world media and global consensus, based on analysis of cryptocurrency trends, have decided that 2018 is "The Year of The Altcoin" (so coins other than Bitcoin). So these are the trends and patterns that everyone knows about. In the back channels of the internet are places where technology is being developed that will be the trends of the future. In many of those back channels people believe that 2019 will be the year of the "Smart Contract" and the rise of Crypto Gaming products governed by smart contract. PoWH3D is a smart contract.

--5) Is this friendly to new investors with zero crypto experience and experienced alike?--

So for people with absolutely zero crypto experience, this will be a lot easier than most exchanges, or other ways of getting into crypto. By that I mean that the technical knowledge that someone needs to learn to interact with our system is very low. Basically they just have to install metamask and visit our website ( Our UI/front end (website) design, is pretty clean, straightforward and simple. We wanted it to be easy for people to interact with. For experienced players in the crypto sphere, this is a breeze.

--6) What do you need to participate in this? What's it cost?--

Step 1) You'll need Ethereum (ETH), which you can get through popular services like CoinBase ( Currently we are working on building a system to add other types of crypto you could use though.
Step 2) Install the MetaMask Plugin for your browser, which can be done on a computer or mobile device. (
Step 3) Visit our page> click "exchange"> and click buy. (
As far as cost? As much or as little as someone wants to put into it. There are no minimums or maximums.

--7) How is this profitable? How does this work?--

Profit comes from the Proof of Weak Hands concept. And from fees the system charges to use it. When a user buys into the system, a 10% fee is taken and distributed to all other players who are holding P3D coin. There is also a fee on trades and sells, all of this constitutes volume (activity). So any amount of volume will generate a distribution of the fees to holders. If a player holds until either (A) the price goes up to where they can sell at a profit, or (B) they have earned enough passive or active dividends, to have generated a profit, then they "win". We call this having "Strong Hands". Where as having "Weak Hands" would be someone who enters and exits the system at a loss. So strong hands profit from weak hand's loss. In the simplest form, value is only being exchanged from one hand to another, depending on how a player plays.

--8) How do I know this isn't a scam?--

Our system is governed by Smart Contract. For people new to crypto, a smart contract is a piece of programming code that is uploaded to the blockchain. Once uploaded it can never be modified or destroyed. We chose to publish our code open source, so that it is 100% transparent. So for as long as computers, electricity, and the blockchain exist, PoWH3D will exist. And the rules that govern it (the smart contract) can never be changed. Our smart contract has been audited and peer reviewed to ensure that there are no code errors, logic flow errors, underflow or overflow exploits, exit scams, pre-mines, self destruct codes, or administrator back doors. Being opens source, anyone can read the code, and verify all this for themselves.
Although this product is young, there have already been people who have copied our code and website, with modifications that make those variants a scam, and published them elsewhere. To try and trick people. That is something that is obviously outside our control. That said, we always do everything within our power, to keep everyone informed about scams that try to look like us. I recommend joining our discord server to keep up to date with that stuff. ( Since I have this opportunity here, I want to say, do not use the websites powhcoin dot com, or powh3d dot com. Those are not us. But lookalike scams. Our official website is powh dot io. I recommend only interacting with the smart contract through that site, or better yet, learning how to directly interact via the blockchain through tools like metamask. This would ensure that you are always interacting with the right smart contract.

--9) So how can this cryptocurrency be used?--

As covered in question number 3, it’s mostly a buy/sell/trade/hold type of use case at the moment. However part of this projects philosophy and system encourages autonomous community based development. Which means that other dapps (cryptocurrency based applications and software) can build systems that utilize this. Sure, that's true for almost any crypto. Nothing new there. It's a promise that experienced crypto players hear from every ICO out there. But what makes our product different, is the fact that usage/volume generates profit for everyone. Effectively this system creates community based ownership of ALL products built upon it. I think that is going to be a huge marketing tool for developers moving into the future.
I had a lot more typed up on this that I wanted to say, but due to the competitive nature and speed at which the crypto sphere evolves, I'm not going to say too much more. There's already a few exciting projects along those lines in the works. Albeit in the small scale experimental phase.

--10) As this coin gains popularity, what kind of outlook are you expecting your users to see?--

If you mean a price target, in the smart contract world, we don't use traditional price targets. A normal price target you would talk about a price per coin at a certain point in the future. In smart contracts, we instead talk about the total amount put into the smart contact. With our product, neither of these really matter. Instead it's all about volume. Like I started this interview with, this product is a simulated market and hybrid economic system. It purpose is distribution of economic product. That distribution is instantaneous, with any type of transaction (buy/sell/trade). So the focus for measure of success is all about volume. The more active the economic system, the more successful it is. Players who hold P3D coin, generally shouldn't care wither it's going up or down, but more care about the volume.
But if you want an estimate about total amount of ETH in the contract, say in 1 month, 6 months, or 12 months, I honestly don't know. This is uncharted territory here. Nothing like this has been created before. So trying to guess it's popularity, is unpredictable. My focus is more on developing this product into something with further use cases. So I take the standpoint of make a quality product/system, and let it speak for itself. I would 100% be willing to trade my house for ETH, and if anyone takes me up on that offer, I would be putting a large chunk of that into buying P3D, if that says anything about my personal outlook. Remember though, that rule number 1 in crypto, is never put in more than you can afford to lose.

--11) Can I be as risky or safe with this, and still profit?--

Any typical investment into crypto is a risk due to volatility of the whole cryptosphere. It’s all grey area. All unknowns. With our hybrid economic model, leverage against risk is built into the system. For example, say you bought 100 P3D coins for 0.02 ETH a piece. And then the price dropped shortly afterwards to just 0.01 ETH a piece. Because of our fee and dividend distribution you would of earned some returns off of the volume that lead to that price drop. If you continue to hold (have strong hands) even if the price per coin stays hovering around the 0.01 ETH point, you will keep earning passive dividends off of the volume. Over a long enough period of holding, this would produce a ROI, even without any labor or effort on your behalf. But say that's not quick enough for you. And you want to expedite the actualization of ROI, you could use your referral link to increase your dividend earnings. This puts more control in your hands of getting to a break even or profit point. Even after experiencing a large crash.
In one dimensional crypto currencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple, etc... if you bought at 0.02 ETH per coin, and it dropped per 0.01 ETH per coin value and stayed there, you are just fucked. The only entities that are making money off of that situation, are the exchanges, which make their profit off of volume. With our product, its like you own the exchange. So your leveraging the risk with your ownership in the system, and mostly only care about volume. Like I said though. Rule number one in crypto is never put in what you can't afford to lose. And ultimately, I cannot emphasize enough to your readers, that our system we have built is intended as an experiment. A game. A test of a hybrid economic model, and alternative market system. It's an experiment that seeks to study what would happen if we had a self inflating/deflating currency, what would the market effects be of getting rid of the order book trading system, and replaced it with one where price is based on volume, and an experiment of how to hybridize the distribution of economic product in a way that offers multiple layers of incentive and multiple modes of play. It asks the question of, can we build a system that solves the real world's problems related to these aspects of our global economic system. And can we do it with mechanics that in their own nature, incentivise perpetual sustainability and continuous autonomous community development. It's not intended to be looked at as an investment. But as an experiment or a game. This is why our page is made up of meme-speak and treats it like a meme-coin. Do with it what you will. But do so at your own risk and always do your own research.
Well, internet, that's all we had time for, and is already a lot to digest. If this makes you as intrigued about the PoWH3D project like it has me, then please use my reflink below as a "thanks" for the time I put into writing this up. (autonomous community development in action?).

Approval of the Winklevoss Bitcoin ETF is expected before the end of the year, according to this article on Gemini....

Get your moon suits ready! From the paywalled mondaymorning article:
The Gemini Bitcoin exchange, one of several Bitcoin-related projects that the Winklevoss twins have in the pipeline, has obtained two key approvals from New York regulators.
The New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) has granted the Gemini Trust Co. approval for its Articles of Organization. The NYDFS also granted Gemini an exemption from the FDIC deposit insurance requirements of New York's banking laws.
It's all been part of an arduous process to gain the solid regulatory backing needed to make Gemini the top choice for institutional investors.
The Winklevoss twinsThe Winklevoss twins, Tyler and Cameron, set up the Gemini exchange as a trust company under New York regulations. It gives the Bitcoin exchange many of the same privileges as a bank, including the ability to take deposits.
But as a banking trust, Gemini can't lend money. Lending isn't necessary for Gemini to function as a Bitcoin exchange, and it would have lengthened the approval process even more.
The new approvals make the Gemini Trust Co. an "established entity," which means it can now pursue the formal relationships with banks and vendors that will allow it to actually launch the exchange.
The approvals have Gemini on the "one-yard line," Cameron Winklevoss told CoinDesk, although it still needs a few more approvals from the NYDFS.
The Winklevoss twins have pursued the banking charter path rather than apply to the NYDFS for a BitLicense specifically because they wanted to serve institutional investors.
"I don't know if anyone has made this distinction enough. If you want to service institutional customers in New York, the BitLicense is not sufficient," Cameron Winklevoss told CoinDesk. "There's a good chance that when you get one you'll have to curtail or stop actually servicing NY institutions."
The charter also means the Winklevoss Bitcoin exchange will have the option to offer derivatives, swaps, and futures, although that will require further approval from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). The CFTC ruled last month that Bitcoin is a commodity, and so such trading falls under its jurisdiction.
Gemini will not be the first U.S.-based Bitcoin exchange – Coinbase and ItBit went live earlier this year. ItBit, like Gemini, operates as a trust company with NYDFS approval.
But here's why institutional investors are likely to prefer the Gemini Bitcoin exchange
What Sets the Gemini Bitcoin Exchange Apart Part of the appeal of the Gemini Bitcoin exchange is the painstaking effort the Winklevoss twins have made to ensure it's fully compliant with all regulations. That goes a long way to building confidence in an institution – particularly a new one based on a digital currency that itself is only six years old.
But the Winklevoss twins also believe Gemini has features that will make it more appealing to institutional traders.
"We describe Gemini as an E-Trade, because we'll have a web interface, like Nasdaq, because we have a matching engine order book, and like DTC [Depository Trust Company] because we are also a clearing and settlement house. We are basically all three functions collapsed into one," Tyler Winklevoss told Modern Trader. "When we discuss what we're doing with the institutional crowd, they get really excited about the clearing and settlement aspects of what we're doing, and the reduction in costs. Bringing that friction down is a massive opportunity."
The Gemini Bitcoin exchange also fits into a larger trend of rapidly increasing Wall Street interest in the digital currency. Last month, for instance, nine major world banks announced they had formed a partnership to study ways to incorporate Bitcoin into the global financial markets, an alliance that since has grown to 22.
The Gemini exchange is just one Bitcoin investing initiative the Winklevoss twins have undertaken.
They also are awaiting U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission approval of the Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust, a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) that will trade under the ticker Nasdaq: COIN. Approval of the Winklevoss Bitcoin ETF is expected before the end of the year.
The Winklevoss twins also created their own Bitcoin price index, the Winkdex, which uses a weighted formula based on trading at the top three Bitcoin exchanges. But for now, they're very much focused on launching the Gemini Bitcoin exchange.
"Our days are focused on building what we consider a pure-play Bitcoin exchange," Tyler Winklevoss told Modern Trader. "We need to make sure it's an active, healthy market with the right participants, so that when people show up, there's liquidity, a full order book and everything works as expected and advertised. We're trying to do this one thing really right, in a way that the community hasn't seen yet."

Proposal for Peaceable Bitcoin Ecosystem Scaling

Also on medium.
I’m a bigblocker.
Perhaps more importantly, I believe in free markets. I think there is a way both big block and small block camps get what they want, in a constructive way, as opposed to a more messy power struggle.
As of July 20, 2017 it appears chain-splits around August 1, 2017 will be avoided, because the consensus on the Bitcoin network will be to accept only SegWit signaling blocks. This means the UASF (which mandates SegWit activation) will not result in a chain-split, which means the counter UAHF, a contingency plan against a UASF chain-split, will also not go forward.
This doesn’t yet mean harmony in the community.
Members from each camp are chomping at the bit for assured action/resolution. If there is no UASF chain-split some smallblockers are prepared to fork away with a proof-of-work change, effectively “firing” existing Bitcoin miners. Likewise, even without a UASF chain-split some bigblockers want to activate the UAHF known as BitcoinABC or Bitcoin Cash on August 1st anyway.
It appears these are the most extreme of the camps, though, and there isn’t currently significant ecosystem support for such moves.
Mainstream Showdown
It appears most of the community (and hashpower) is on board with the New York Agreement, omitting the mandatory 2 MB hard-fork. It’s this 2 MB hard-fork, scheduled three months after SegWit activation, that is likely to produce a significant chain-split. While a supermajority of hashpower currently agrees to support the NYA, it may be the intent of some was only to avoid a chain-split — if only a little longer — and/or activate SegWit. Ongoing support for the 2 MB hard-fork is less clear, even with members that signed onto an agreement clearly made in such spirit. It appears certain a large portion of hashpower (e.g. Bitmain) will hard-fork per NYA as scheduled.
The curious thing about currencies is their value depends on the shared perception of them.
Hashpower doesn’t decide the value (or perception) of a cryptocurrency. What’s more likely to define what is perceived as “Bitcoin” shortly after the hard-fork are exchanges, wallets, ATMs and payment processors, because these are used by the bulk of ordinary users and it’s users that collectively define value in currency.
I believe most exchanges etc. are in wait and see mode. Here is a statement from Coinbase on July 19, 2017 (bold emphasis mine):
“Should UAHF to increase the Bitcoin block size activate on August 1, Coinbase will not be able to support the new blockchain or its associated coin since it is incompatible with the current Bitcoin ruleset and will create a separate blockchain.
Customers that desire access to UAHF coins should withdraw their bitcoin from Coinbase by July 31. Although we have no plans to support additional blockchains at this time, we will continue to monitor UAHF developments.
Nobody can define Bitcoin alone, rather its presence — or lack of a clear presence in favor of multiple coins— emerges collectively over time. That’s the disorganized and potentially confusing, harmful way to do it, though I do feel it would still work in the long run. (It’s the free market in action.)
Organized Proposal
Instead, let’s do an amicable divorce, something best for both parties. Agree to disagree. The market will be the arbiter of the winning vision, or support coexisting ones.
Folks, this is over branding. Someone asked why bigblockers don’t move to Litecoin; after all they now have effectively 16 MB max block capacity. Litecoin is the closest, and oldest alt to Bitcoin, except with what I believe to be an improvement in block time; but it’s not the #2 coin. Ethereum, which I believe may end up a victim of its own success via scaling issues, and where the slogan is “move fast and break things” (hardly ideal for a currency) is in that spot, not barely beating Litecoin but valued some nine times higher. Wise investors know markets can remain irrational longer than they can remain solvent; and for currency the network effect amplifies this problem.
Bigblockers feel a claim to Bitcoin (Satoshi is documented supporting big blocks), and conflict won’t cease until brand value is somehow resolved.
I propose smallblockers keep the Bitcoin brand, and continue being known as the original, and (for marketing purposes) immutable coin. They won’t compromise, even against losing everything. Hard-forks are an emergency only measure. These appear to be selling points for smallblockers. I say let the market value that. They’ll probably stick around, especially if the next coin I propose appears to approach unacceptable centralization.
Bigblockers should hard-fork per the NYA schedule, but seek to brand themselves as “Bitcoin Cash” with the distinguishable ticker BCC. Bigblockers believe hard-forks are a preferential way to upgrade, and the key word is upgrade. Embrace being a changed, upgraded Bitcoin. I further propose using the same Bitcoin logo for branding, but green, and with the hard-fork moving block time down to ~2.5 minutes to ensure competitiveness in the top few coins (instead of a 2 MB size change to be somewhat close to max effective size).
Markets love more not less options. I practically guarantee something like a stock split where the diverged coins end up with greater value combined soon after the split.
Neither camp, if they believe their vision truly valuable, should fear competition this way. Since the proof-of-work isn’t changed miners can merged mine both, meaning both have the similar security (smallblockers can even SPV mine big blocks). It’s really the ecosystem making these options available which determines later value. Users will automatically have (and probably keep) both.
So what will it be community? Organized and predictable? Or messy and harmful, with possibly confusing, ongoing power struggles over branding? Both will work in the long term because cryptocurrency will live on, but I know which I prefer. I’d prefer to work on and share good ideas again like improving latency with things like compact blocks, or user experience with software checkpoints. Bitcoin can use all hands on deck, not perpetual war.
