TomoChain AMA with DAppBird: Public blockchain applications for businesses.

TomoChain AMA with DAppBird: Public blockchain applications for businesses.

https://preview.redd.it/a07hgl4am5t41.png?width=690&format=png&auto=webp&s=df718220bddfbeb6e3790328177769859df08874
Hi everyone. Pleased to be here! Thank you for taking your time to join me.
I’m the Chief Business Development Officer for TomoChain.
Educationally I graduated university with degrees in both Industrial Engineering and Economics from Georgia Tech, and later earned an MBA from the Wharton School of Business.
I grew up as a gaming addict and have a video game collection that is a bit unwieldy. Dozens of consoles and, at one point, over 13 classic arcade machines.
So, before crypto, I spent much of my profession in the gaming space. I was a Game Designer, Game Producer, and eventually Studio Head for a major games studio that was recently purchased by Rockstar Games. I have run my own game-related tech businesses as well.
I fell into crypto back in 2014, and over time it became a second passion of mine as I began to truly understand the value of decentralization. True ownership of data was not possible until Bitcoin came along and that is simply a powerful and game-changing message to a world structure built on an opposing foundation.
Brief Introduction

https://preview.redd.it/8p7jm15ul5t41.png?width=739&format=png&auto=webp&s=8b572bdee2c56ffa29a1d628dda7332fac0fac50
TomoChain is a Public Blockchain powered by Proof-of-Stake Voting. TomoChain launched into Mainnet 1 year ago in December 2018. It is secured by 150 Masternodes, of which I’m proud to be an operator myself. TomoChain is EVM Compatible and runs at a speedy 2000 TPS with a 2 Sec Blocktime. Gas fees are almost zero too.
Based out of Vietnam, TomoChain is Southeast Asia’s largest public blockchain. We are focusing on developing a full suite of DeFi products. We also have commercial and enterprise clients. TomoChain has a number of major crypto-partnerships including notables like Neo Blockchain, Chainlink and Crypto.com. Our Masternode network is run by some of the most recognizable players in the space as well, including Neo Global Capital, CoinGecko, HashQuark, KuCoin, and more large players are on the way.
TomoChain earned its place onto Binance.com with a fee-free listing last year by winning the BinanceDEX community vote in August 2019. Binance has written us up in a detailed Binance Research Report and awarded us the V-Label. We have also been in a number of their reports, including those related to Dapps and DeFi. We have been interviewed by Forbes.com official and had an in-person interview at NASDAQ, in the heart of Times Square, about TomoChain and our upcoming TomoX Protocol.
In China, specifically, we have been integrated into and have solid relationships with various blockchain players including HashQuark, HashKey, CoboWallet, Conflux, and many others. We launched an Ecosystem Development partnership with Neo Blockchain last December and co-hosted a meetup + workshop with them as well.

GEARED FOR REAL WORLD USE
Now, let’s talk about how TomoChain has been built for real-world use.
We’re looking at Payments & DeFi as low hanging fruit when it comes to user adoption and TomoChain is developing a suite of tools to support this. The biggest challenge for having users benefit from Blockchain on a day-to-day basis is how much friction is involved to acquire, store and use it. Even stable coins are dual currency systems. The Stablecoin and then the Native Token to pay gas fees. Blockchain is simply not user-friendly.
Our view is that the true solution for Blockchain adoption by the world is end-users shouldn’t need to know they are using blockchain technology at all. It should be a hidden technology layer, similar to payment processor settlements or even the internet distribution centers/routers that power this very AMA we’re all participating in right now. Do we need to know the underlying technology infrastructure to use them? Nope.
We are developing a system to hide this friction, so the TomoChain blockchain can be integrated into real-world applications that you use every day on mobile or web.
There are 3 protocols that we are building to enable this future: (1) TomoZ: Zero Friction (2) TomoX: The DEX Protocol (3) TomoP: The Privacy Suite.

https://preview.redd.it/irwduto4m5t41.png?width=741&format=png&auto=webp&s=56e21c8e56b86af197344d7a043d073456c53181
TomoZ: Zero Friction - Our TomoZ protocol is a core starting point to the solution for mass market use of blockchain technology. TomoZ: Zero Friction allows for token issuance and use by having gas fees paid by the token itself. That means you don’t need TOMO to send transactions. You don’t even need to know you’re using the TomoChain blockchain.
So you could buy a cup of coffee at a café using loyalty points that are TomoZ tokens. The customers redeem for their coffee or earn it, but they don’t even have to know it’s a blockchain token which they actually own.
This approach is structured to enable the next million-plus users to utilize blockchain as a technology layer. After all, the real value of any Blockchain is in its utilization of high-quality transactions.
Now, TomoZ transactions aren’t FREE. It actually does use TOMO, but that’s hidden from the end-user. The way it works is that the token issuer deposits a small amount of TOMO into a pool. Every time the token is sent, TOMO is taken from this pool to pay the Masternodes.
The key is that the end-user doesn’t need to get involved with internal workings, which is why we call it the Zero Friction protocol
Now let’s talk about TomoX: The DEX Protocol
TomoX is an upcoming DEX Protocol that allows anyone to launch their on permissionless Decentralized Exchange in minutes. It requires very little technical knowledge making it a near turn-key solution.
TomoX is the fastest DEX experience since it’s a Layer 1 protocol. This means it’s run and secured by the entire TomoChain network. Our Masternodes manage the DEX instructions directly, rather than other DEXs that operate as a Layer 2 protocol. What this means is TomoX DEXs will operate at about 50x faster than a typical 0x exchange. That significantly improves the end-user experience.
TomoX DEX operators have access to a shared liquidity pool across all DEXs. That means a user buying on one DEX can be matched with a user selling on another DEX. Of course, Operators can customize and choose which tokens to include.
TomoX is fully decentralized since the Order Book is on-chain. Many other semi-decentralized exchanges store the OB on a centralized service in order to speed up the execution. That means there is a centralized point of weakness for them. TomoX minimizes custody and security challenges that centralized exchanges have too since all users are always in possession of their assets.
TomoX is currently in testnet and you can checkout TomoChain’s own DEX, aptly called TomoDEX, here: https://dex.testnet.tomochain.com/
Here is a link to get some free Testnet TOMO that can be used on the testnet version of TomoDEX: https://faucet.testnet.tomochain.com/
And finally, there is TomoP: Privacy Suite - TomoP is currently in testnet and is going to be the FASTEST way to send tokens privately. 2-4 seconds fast!
Any token issued on TomoChain will be able to utilize TomoP to send privately and anonymously. And that’s not all. We are including access to wrapped BTC, ETH, USDT, and other tokens that can also utilize the blazing speed and privacy that TomoP will offer.
Dapp privacy is a major part of TomoP. It is going to allow for the creation of Dapps to be built to handle customer data with true privacy, including from the Dapp operators themselves. This can jumpstart a new wave of applications geared towards hiding user information, transactions, assets owned, etc.
We are issuing a new token standard (TRC21p) which will be purely private. The only data available will be on its token supply. Token issuers can optionally provide auditing access to enforcement authorities to meet regulatory compliance. What this means is if the next Global PayPal/Skrill/Alipay competitor can build their service right on TomoChain and meet the most basic criteria required to stay above board in many jurisdictions.

Questions from the host
1. It’s been stated that TomoChain was on track to be a cash flow positive business, is it currently cash flow positive? What services or products is it offering to bring in this revenue?
Yes, absolutely. Our plan is to be cash flow positive this year. This really goes back to the level of experience our executive team has. Everyone is seasoned, having come from different fields, in big business and startups. Before the crazy boom of ICOs and IEOs, raising funding for traditional startups required considerable proof that there was market fit, that there were actual customers to drive revenue, and a model for growth.
We knew that TomoChain’s funds raised during the ICO were for a space that has yet to prove itself so the company had to be smart in budgeting for an uncertain future. And part of that initial preparation was selling much of the ICO proceeds into fiat. Something MANY blockchain startups did not do, largely due to ambitious teams that are also headed by very inexperienced leaders. So while the bubble burst, we had capital to continue operations and to even scale it.
And, we ARE running a business. A sustainable business requires us to identifying areas to generate income in order to minimize risk and to sustain the business in the long term. So we do both consulting and services work by helping clients to develop wallets, launch tokens (Orbyt), build exchanges (AIS), and of course enterprise solutions on the blockchain of which we have clients based out of Japan and in the Middle East using blockchain for traceability solutions across various industries from automotive, healthcare, and food.
2. What is the most strategical step TOMO is doing to bring adoption of TOMO coin to our daily lives?
Empowering businesses with a truly scalable blockchain that can be used by thousands and millions of users. We see user adoption of blockchain coming from businesses that base their solutions on blockchain technology. And, TomoChain has a number of real income-generating companies that have built on us, from exchanges to payment services to enterprise clients. Not bad for 1 year I say, especially during a stagnant market. Here are some examples.
UcarPac – A Top 10 User Car company in Japan is building traceability solutions on the blockchain. We completed a POC at the end of last year. After the assessment, the client decided it was solid and commissioned Phase 2 to expand the development of the project for commercialization purposes
Triip Protocol – Triip is a destination service for travelers to book vacations powered by Blockchain. Triip is a Shark Tank Vietnam alumnus, and the first ICO on TomoChain. Users can book tours and staycations using Triip or TOMO tokens.
WisePass – A service that sells subscription services to get discounted Starbucks, Singha Beer, and even makeup (of all things) integrated TomoChain as a payment solution
“Undisclosed Vendor” – Soon to be announced, a large player in the corporate gift giving business is also launching a Dapp on TomoChain to allow for them to make purchases with TOMO across thousands of items.
Maka - A peer-to-peer marketplace to conveniently buy/sell TOMO and other blockchain tokens using standard payment gateways, including e-wallets and bank transfers.
Coin98 – A local Vietnam crypto media company launched an App to allow for their community to earn their TomoChain token called C98 and use it for products and services geared around investors and gamers. The reception has been HUGE. 95,000 users and generating 500K+ transactions on our blockchain within 3 months of their launch! They are proving that innovative new business models can be adopted relying on and being blockchain specific.

3. Do you have any plans to collaborate with developers or attract more Dapps built on TomoChain?
We are today. Our founders run the largest Blockchain Developer community in Vietnam and we work with a number of them to help develop solutions on the blockchain.
Our team has held Hackathons a few times over the last couple years and we have done developer workshops too, including one with Neo Blockchain. And this year we are working closely with educational institutions to launch blockchain courses in Vietnam.
Every Dapp developer we work with is a partner. We try to provide as much support as possible, both technical and marketing. A number of Dapps are games on TomoChain and we hold contests regularly to promote the developers and their titles.
Since we are focusing on alleviating the friction of blockchain technology, we are building out an API that will make it even easier for developers to integrate blockchain into standard applications. This is intended to allow standard non-blockchain application developers to operate in an environment they are accustomed to while also having the benefit of blockchain technology accessible.
Onboarding more developers will take time. However, I’m confident we’re on the cusp of something wonderful in the coming years that will change the relationship between users and applications enabled by blockchain. Entirely new economic structures can be set up since it’ll be the users owning all of their data for the first time in digital history. And true ownership is a powerful motivator that can be harnessed by innovative blockchain businesses.

A Hefty Apology..

First, I'd like to apologies for how long this is going to be, but I believe context is everything.
I'd like to apologize to the Nano community. Since before the re brand I've always cracked jokes about the project, primarily because I can't stand moonbois.. but I digress.
I guess you could say I was early on the Bitcoin chain. I was blown away by the white paper and mined coins before ASICs we're even a discussion. Never got rid of them or anything, just thought it was an amazing concept to me since I had been repeatedly jacked around by a few banks. However, as a recurring theme life happened and I fell out of it completely. A few years went by when someone brought it up to me and when I asked how much it was worth, I almost had a heart attack. Probably shouldn't have spilled beer on the laptop holding my address and key. It didn't even cross my mind when I threw it out..
So I was back, other projects were on the come up and I took interest. Thought they were great, still do.. But I couldn't wrap my head around a lot of it. I'm familiar with code like I am around the block of an engine, but I'm not a mechanic. I couldn't fathom having to use a calculator to figure out how much gas I needed to send 100 coins of X. Thought I did it right and boom... Dust. The rage. Made some good strides and learned from previous mistakes, but I was still somewhat upset with decisions made within these projects. Who would think that was okay? Life happened again and I dropped out for quite awhile again to return back to a colleague at work mentioning BTC at around 9K. I quietly (I don't mention to many people about how involved I've been) checked out my addresses and was blown away. So I was back.
Yeah I made gains (lost a lot too), but I was already well on my way in life and career and didn't need the rocket in some dream of a lambo (Masi's are better). I just wanted all of this to work. Again, it seemed like it was too hard to do anything, move things around... Dust here, dust there.. None the less, I learned more. Taught myself some code just so I could understand the githubs.. No desire to code, just wanted to learn. The dream I saw a few years ago was growing and I felt optimistic. Stuck around for a long run and then life happened again.
Came back at probably the best time in late summer 2017. You want to talk about diversification... I just (today) burned a stack of papers with private keys written down to projects I forgot even existed. The mayhem! Anyway, won some lost some yeah yeah everyone has those stories....
I was still frustrated because that image I had in my head when I was a bit younger was not really fulfilled. Man, these moonbois, let me tell you. At the time and shortly after cracking jokes and having fun was basically my MO (I'm very sarcastic, still am). But yet again, life happened and I let everything just sit where the chips were.. With the exception of those burned out GPUs and the S9's. They went into the trash.
Life gave me a nice little easy path more recently and I've been poking my head around again. The moonboi epidemic is definitely at an ATH. But where the hell was this image I had years back and now and why did it seem like it died? Too many scams? Too many hacks? Too much smoke and mirrors? The founding idea is/was so perfect?
But I wanted that image. The past couple weeks I've been being my sarcastic ass and ripping a bit on Nano. I saw an actual well thought out post on Reddit and thought “Alright, that's pretty well said. Let me hear this out.” So I took a look. Thought it was better put together than other projects so I lurked around.
Today in the daily general I asked for a laymen's approach. I didn't need it, but I wanted to see what would be thrown at me. I was impressed. I saw on another thread about Natrium and a faucet... DAMN, that was fast. Alright I thought, let's dabble. So I did what I always do.. Took a little BTC to the exchange, picked up some nano, set up the ledger and mobile app and tested some stuff out.
Do you know the feeling after everything I just said to send 10 Nano from the exchange (including fee) to a mobile wallet, to the ledger, back to the mobile wallet and then back to the exchange and in the end... still have 10 Nano? In under less than I don't even know.. as fast as I could copy and paste it?!
I called for my wife took her phone and sent myself 10 Nano back and forth. Man am I an asshole. I'm not “In” so to speak, because honestly, at this point. I don't care about prices. I just want to use the shit. Life happens, I want to be able to continue down life and use this shit. The last time I actually used BTC for anything was in 2014.
BTC is digital gold for me.. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah... Sounds like some WSJ headline, I know. But it's been a good hedge against inflation for what's it worth. But during that second to last time I was back.. the Tx fees were unbelievable. Store of value, all the way, buying a snickers bar? No thanks mate.
I'm actually late to meet a friend at the bar for our weekly pint, was gonna just send this, but he's a moonboi. One sec. Lol --- 45 min later --- Alright, at the pub. Got him to download Natrium. We're now gonna just buy eac hother drinks for the next few hours.
I have some questions regarding decentralization.. bottle necking, spam transactions, but I can ask them in discord I guess. My only fear is that this could be replicated by Chase/BofA etc, but then again, I kind of left them years ago for a reason.
I'm sorry, okay. I'm sorry I was a sarcastic asshole. This is by far the closest thing I've wanted in a very long time. Send 1 Nano.. Get 1 Nano. Who would have thought. I'm going back to darts, but before I go...
- Can someone send me something on how to set up a node? Walk through maybe?
- Mods should pin this. I don't care about worthless internet points. Truth is I'm on my 9th or 10th Reddit account. So, I'll retire this one as soon as I hit send. But I think there is a valuable lesson from my time in this crazy town.
I'm not getting rid of my BTC and “going all in for the moonbois”. But I'll definitely be using my Nano. Whenever or wherever I can.
Thank you.

Dogecoin (DOGE) Is One Of The Best Cryptocurrencies, GenesisBlockNews Would Not Exist Without It

Dogecoin (DOGE) Is One Of The Best Cryptocurrencies, GenesisBlockNews Would Not Exist Without It

https://preview.redd.it/zre7wvnp6j021.jpg?width=1200&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=feb2fd2170112de80ab6ba04ba1ed2e85afb2496
http://genesisblocknews.com/dogecoin-doge-is-one-of-the-best-cryptocurrencies-genesisblocknews-would-not-exist-without-it/
Dogecoin (DOGE) is one of the best cryptocurrencies out there, and if Dogecoin did not exist, GenesisBlockNews would not exist either. Without a shadow of a doubt, Dogecoin is what got me into the crypto space. Before I tell that story, let me explain the merits of Dogecoin.
Most cryptocurrencies nowadays launch with an initial coin offering (ICO) or pre-mine, and in both cases the developers take a large amount of coins for themselves out of greed. This ruins the coin supply and market long term. Dogecoin is one of the only cryptocurrencies to have zero premine. From the day Dogecoin launched it was an honest competition between miners, traders, investors, and workers to obtain Dogecoins. As far as I remember, the creator of Dogecoin, Jackson Palmer, does not have more Dogecoins than any other early adopter.
The fact that Dogecoin uses Scrypt proof of work (PoW) enabled people on personal computers to mine Dogecoin, versus Bitcoin which could not be mined on a personal computer, even way back when I started in 2014. Further, Dogecoin has always had a relatively low USD value per coin, so miners can earn entire Dogecoins, if not hundreds to thousands of Dogecoins, via mining and faucets. It feels a whole lot better to earn entire Dogecoins, versus minuscule fractions of Bitcoins, and this is the sort of thing that gets new crypto users excited enough to dive deeper into the space.
The lack of premine and favorable mining conditions allowed Dogecoin to develop one of the healthiest crypto communities; one of the community’s main hubs is dogecoin. The community on dogecoin, and other chat sites and waterbowls, has always been very friendly and generous. At least back when I started in 2014, Dogecoin was known as the crypto for tipping, and this fostered a healthy environment of content sharing and collaboration. Compare this to the Bitcoin community, which practically never tips and is often very aggressive to each other. Not talking down on Bitcoin, basically Bitcoin is aggressive like New York City, and there is a purpose for that and nothing wrong with it, while Dogecoin is like Wisconsin and very friendly.
All of these positive factors is why Dogecoin is sticking around as a major cryptocurrency long term, currently with a market cap of USD 250 million even in this ‘nuclear’ bear market. When the crypto market finally does go to the moon, Dogecoin will definitely be along for the ride.
When I was but a young shibe, Dogecoiners taught me how to mine my first Dogecoins, skills which I later used to mine dozens of different cryptos. Dogecoiners taught me how to exchange Dogecoins for fiat on dogemarket, which would later become a real enterprise for me as it expanded into Bitcoin dealing. Without the training and experience on dogemarket I would have never had a chance at being a Bitcoin dealer. Also, the tipping rewards for good content on dogecoin motivated me to become a crypto journalist, which is now my career, and allows me to provide a stable home for my wife.
Essentially, Dogecoin is a friendly gateway for the crypto space, and without Dogecoin I would probably be stuck working a physical labor job, instead of using my intellect to its maximum capabilities. Dogecoin and crypto in general provides the freedom to do any job or business you are capable of, and the friendly helping hand of the Dogecoin community is what made me realize that. For many people their crypto experience starts with the friendly shibes of the Dogecoin community, and then quickly becomes a serious career.

MOON MISSION - How to Expand the Dogecoin Community!

Hello fellow Shibes,

I decided to make a post regarding the expansion of the Dogecoin community. As a very passionate enthusiast I want to see it reach the moon! This post will be focusing on two main aspects of Dogecoin which I think if cherished or improved will directly corelate with more people joining the Dogecoin community; also discussing how we can promulgate the great things and give attention to areas that need work. The two aspects are:
-The community
-The currencies technical fundamentals (what they are and how to get people investing)
 
Let’s start off with the community, WOW! It’s awesome! Unlike other crypto-currency communities whose members are nearly 100% of the time only concerned about financial gains, or what potential criminal use cases are possible (this is truly why the original bitcoin boom occurred). The dogecoin community is completely different, one only has to look at this reddit forum to notice. Or, what this relatively small (in the grand scheme of things) community has funded. $50k for athletes in the 2014 Olympics, sponsoring NASCAR drivers, the Doge4water program etc etc.
 
So how can we the community continue to spread the word in effective ways? I’ve heard many ideas such as advertisement via posters, social media accounts, charity programs. All of these things are I great if we want to appeal to the masses, but I think the most effective and practical way to encourage people to join the Dogecoin community is by telling our friends who might be interested in why we use it (That’s certainly how I joined the community). I heard someone state something simple yet very true, “if everyone assisted just ONE friend in setting up a doge wallet and got them hooked on the community the population would double!” I personally think that verbal explanation to friends and family is the most simple and effective way of expanding the Dogecoin community, have you guys any other ideas? Let me know.
 
The issue is unless you’re (generally) in the crypto know-how your most likely not going to take any action if left to your own devices, why? There’s no real incentive to join the community and or to invest in the currency for most people (I’ll address this later). Which leads me to my next point, the technical aspects of Dogecoin.
 
When talking about any crypto-currency there is usually 5 things to take into consideration to determine if the currency is going to succeed or be useable. Important to note this is done BEFORE the investment, so if the currency doesn’t address these issues well, you’ve lost potential Dogecoin investors.
1) Is it small cap or large cap
2) The blockchain technology
3) Transaction fees
4) It’s White papers (overall goals / roadmap by the engineers of the currency)
5) Ease of purchase / use cases
 
Let’s test Dogecoin against these 5 points.
 
1) WOW! 1 Billion dollar market cap! If anyone says Dogecoin is a silly meme currency make them explain that! This means that Dogecoin has been tested against scrutiny and has come out strong, especially since it’s been around since 2013. This is the mark of a truly successful project.
2) Dogecoins blockchain is great, providing ultra-fast transaction times of under a minute, compared to 2.5 minutes on Litecoin and 10 minutes with Bitcoin (this varies depending on 24-hour currency volumes). Also, Dogecoins hashing power is merged with Litecoin which provides a safety net for the proof-of-work system.
3) Transaction fees is another awesome benefit of Dogecoin, because it’s 1 Doge! Which is miniscule compared to many other cryptos.
4) White paper goals? TO THE MOON!
5) Ease of purchase / use cases; this is where I think Dogecoin lacks a bit, so I’ll dedicate the next part of this post to this issue.
 
Since we have identified that the Dogecoin currency has a great community which can help spread the word, great technology and huge potential what could be stopping people from joining? Well as I mentioned before from research and experience with friends I believe it has to do with the ease of purchase and use cases (hard to buy / hard to spend). When purchasing any crypto-currency you want to buy from a exchange with high volume, the higher the volume the more reputable and safe the exchange is generally speaking. What are the top 5 Dogecoin exchangers ranked by Doge volume?
1) Bittrex @ 20.27%
2) Poloniex @ 17.72%
3) Gate.io @ 10.28%
4) CoinExchange @ 5.96%
5) HitBTC @ 4.92%
 
What do these reputable exchanges that support Dogecoin have in common? They are all US based, which means if you’re not in the US, unless you want to use a exchange with un-verified reputation that supports a (your countries currency / DOGE) conversion you need to buy Bitcoin or Litcoin first. Then after purchasing your Bitcoin / Litcoin from your countries most reputable exchanges, convert BTC/DOGE or LTC/DOGE. For a crypto-currency novice, buying Dogecoin isn’t too user friendly and might seem like a daunting task.
 
What does this mean? What can we do about it? I’m 16 years old so I don’t really have the expertise to answer this question but here are some ideas I came up with, feel free to respond and tell me yours.
 
Dogecoin ATMs: These could be funded by the community and produced in small quantities, but strategically placed where as many people as possible will see such as near tourist attractions. Bitcoin has had major success with this program, it shows to the general public that this is a legitimate usable currency. Also, it provides the convenience of placing loose change into Dogecoin.
Ultimate Dogecoin Exchange: This could be an exchange aimed at making purchasing Dogecoin online simple, automating the (your currency / BTC) > (BTC / DOGE) process.
 
Now let’s talk about the other issue I think could be improved, use cases / ease of spend. So how can we actually use Dogecoin? The ‘Shop with Dogecoins’ section on this forum list all the places that currently support Dogecoin as a payment system, let’s face it, there’s not much. In order for Dogecoin to be truly usable currency a few reputable stores will need to start adopting Dogecoin as a payment system, which is not something that we can really change.
 
What we can do it is continue to spread the word, and tell our friends and family how much of a great community Dogecoin has, what it has accomplished and what it continues to strive for. I personally have had success in collecting doge from faucets (currently my only supply of Doge because I’m underage to use exchanges), then making paper wallets for my friends. I’ve read about so many other cool projects people are working on to expand the community, in whatever capacity them may have. Just awesome :)
 
Thanks for listening to my ideas, TO THE MOON!
 
EDIT: Thank-you everyone for the support of this post, and to the generous Shibes that gave tips :))

recovered my wallet from 2014 with 120,000 doge in it!

I downloaded the Android doge wallet sometime in March 2014. I mainly used faucets and took tips on this sub. I remember back in the day it was easy to get a 1000 doge tip on here (don’t you just miss those days) I also bought around 90k+ coins from a user on this reddit for around $25 at the time! Such luck. I was smart to backup my keys and then upload the .DAT file to my email for safe keeping. I forgot about that wallet until the Bitcoin spike last month.
I was able to download the bitcoin wallet android app and restore my keys (they were back by 39 months -Mine synced for almost two weeks)
Now my mistake. I downloaded a bitcoin wallet and ShapeShifted 40,000 of my doge to bitcoin. I got around 0.004 or $37. I was so excited to see my BTC increase till it hit $70. In the meantime Dogecoin was having its own spike and to my utter dismay my 40,000 Dogecoin which is now worth $92 in BTC would’ve been worth almost $256 today!!!!!
Ah well if it’s any consolation my 79k doge is worth more than $500 all from faucets, tips and $25 spent on this sub Reddit. Much wow!!!
So my take away from this is Store your keys as a draft in your email or send between two emails.
Also I think it is time we did another charity run like we did back in the day with NASCAR or with the wells. It could help put us back on the news.

The Injustice of Cryptos

Hi fellow Shibes, Just want to tackle a big problem and that is the injustice of cryptocurrencies. Cryptos were supposed to change the world by saying:" screw centralized banks, they are the biggest robbers in the world!" and yet it's totally the same with cryptos like with the real money. Only the big players get rich. Only those who can buy couple of bitcoins can get rich. Only those who can buy million doge can get rich. Big players also move with the whole market and influence the prices. Imagine you have one million DOGE. If one Doge reaches 20 cents, you'll have 200 000 USD !!! That's something that can really help you become financially free. Then again, you'd have to have 3K+ USD to get 1 million doges and that is a lot of money especially when you live in a poor country and it's a gamble cause of the volatility of the crpytos. So again, only rich guys can throw a lot of money at the crpytos and then make huge profits. Only rich gets richer and poor gets poorer. Then there's faucets or websites like earncrypto.com - you click like a mule or type like an ass with data entry and they give you like 5 cents a day ! I thought it would be easier to earn cryptos online, especially when you're a student or somebody who's unemployed. So I think cryptos missed their goal and are unjust. It's the same with regular banks - you open an account, they trade stocks with your money and at the end of the year they will give you like 10 EUROS while they made thousands trading your money. What a bunch of fckn assholes. Even earning joke currencies like Doge should be way easier but it isn't ! Đ1 = Đ1 but back in 2014 Đ1 = Đ1 had a whole different meaning :-)

I'm ThePiachu, /r/Bitcoin moderator for 3 years today, AMA

So it looks like I've been a moderator of /Bitcoin for 3 years now. Seems like as good of a reason as any to do my first AMA, so please ask away.
Some conversation starters:
Since we're talking about moderation, this blog post might be of interest to some of you - "On /Bitcoin moderation - three years in review".
So please, ask me anything (and keep it civil ;) ).
EDIT: set Q&A as a suggested sort for the AMA.

[ELI5] Extracting Privkeys from QT/Core

We have a constant stream of people coming back after abandoning Dogecoin and the sub in 2014 when the price fell. These people all have old versions of QT and are now basically trying to recover their coins, presumably to cash out and abandon us again. This is causing strain for the network, as far more people are trying to leech blocks than seed them.
The thing is, none of this is necessary. Especially if you're just going to dump coins. With resources such as https://coinb.in/#settings all you need are your private keys, and you can create, sign and broadcast transactions yourself. No client required, let alone one as resource-hungry as QT.

"So, how do I get my keys?"

First of all, lets talk about data management. The overwhelming majority of coins are not lost through theft, especially direct theft of wallets (as distinct from wholesale thefts/scams/implosions like Moolah, GAW, MtGox, Cryptsy, and even our own beloved Dogetipbot). Most coins are lost because people forget about their wallets and do silly things like reformat hard drives, lose passwords and so on.
So, everyone should have a wallet list. Here is a sample bit of HTML that gives you a page with two columns of wallets, one for local wallets you would withdraw coins to, the other the third-party wallets you would deposit coins to third parties through (do note that many services use temporary addresses generated for deposits which expire after 24h or so). A page like this is how I manage my 100+ wallets, and I have copies on my network and hidden online. Such a page makes it easy to at least keep track of all your wallets, for a trivial amount of work to set up.
 
 Sample - Twitter Fr DFXXz9gq3WkgJaHn9tXRChMhFQcwm4Y251 To DByYgzd4ec5Ku9vPag8XqoBfyRpsoj8Xs3 @TipDoge Sample - Backslash Fr DSDyv83VC1QtEnmJ4ATKFn5Sw3iC12VLmX To D9MsxSyJe5Mq7fWFRpC7zQQt1gexHccN4w Backslash To DJ3GL68kw8vh99RvxnEmQKE8A3cWRoEEqo Backslash Faucet Sample - Block.io To DE5QamzWVnxK2HmCS61cUsrn9iwgTArunU Block.io 

"OK, great, so now I have a list of my wallets. Now what?"

Now you're going to need the private keys for each of those wallets. Obviously you're not going to store these in a public place though. So you will need a separate file, which can just be plain text. Copy each of those addresses into it.
Now go ahead and fire up QT. If you haven't synced it in 3 years, its going to take forever, but that doesn't matter. You don't actually need the blockchain for this, so you don't have to wait for it to catch up.
Open up the console which is in the Help menu. Then give the command dumpprivkey with the wallet address you want the key to. Then use the up-arrow key to bring that command back, replace the address with the next one, and keep going until you have them all.
It will look something like this:
 13:05:18 Welcome to the Dogecoin RPC console. Use up and down arrows to navigate history, and Ctrl-L to clear screen. Type help for an overview of available commands. 13:11:06 dumpprivkey D9xDcRthB6XP4vRGqiyKdDfVJ7CWhYuBBi 13:11:06 6KEcssuq1wWUrFVmMF8yDxHuAdQMiRezz53zDxADLmyoXnix7iM 13:12:00 dumpprivkey DUDARNrGHVTFcCgriwRWgDQJPKDuDQr9jg 13:12:00 6JNk6NNFZcr49fbsD2jcTfTxFLjJKq9DHQ5JU8CYeZ2Cz6JdKMY 13:12:25 dumpprivkey DG6xnwCT6BXePaySqU85XocobZmhbJczQH 13:12:25 6JNXFv95Mp9SzehHw9jojjdxHRNPeh77qCsRbaNwJZMp9MKCAu3 
Yes, those are real wallets. But don't bother trying to steal my coins, I just generated them on https://walletgenerator.net/ and they're empty.
That's basically it. All you need to do is add some descriptions of what the wallets are, pretty up the format to your liking, and save copies in multiple, secure places, including printed out.

Remember, if you lose your keys, OR someone else sees them, you lose your coins!

If those were my real wallets above, you could use the keys and spend my coins. So obviously, don't let anyone else, especially annoying little brothers, get their grubby hands on them. But also make sure they can be discovered if anything happens to you. That's why the printed copies... nobody is going to go trolling through your porn or warez collection on the offchance there's something valuable in there. But they will look in your safe or wherever you store other important documents. Just be sure to leave a note as to what they are and how to use them. Remember the woman who came here a couple years ago who had found a USB stick with 110 BTC in a locked wallet.dat on it from her dead husband? I sometimes wonder if she ever got the money. Don't be her. Or him.

"OK, great. Now I have my keys. What now?"

Well, you can spend coins using https://coinb.in/#settings from any wallet you have the keys to. First step is to choose the network. Dogecoin (mainnet) obviously. Then go to Transaction in the +New menu. Enter your address and hit the Load button. It will pull in the first 100 transactions. Now enter the address to pay, and the amount.
Note the Transaction Fee box!
You want this amount to be zero. Depending on whether you're moving coins to another of your wallets to consolidate them (a very good idea.. go read the UTXO ELI5, which you will find a couple pages into https://www.reddit.com/dogecoin/comments/4yts6h/start_here_for_much_wallet_wow/ - Yes, I'm going to make you work for it, cos there's tons of useful stuff there you need to know), or paying someone else, you may want to select which inputs to use.
Once you're happy with the transaction, go ahead and submit it. You will now get a block of text, which is the raw, unsigned transaction. Copy this. Go to the Sign tab. Paste it. Add your private key and Submit to sign it.
After a little bit, you will get a signed transaction. Copy it. Go to the Broadcast tab, paste it and hit Submit.
That's it. It should go into the next block in a minute or two. Yes, even without paying a mining fee. Our network is so lightly loaded that there are no contention issues like the Bitcoin people have to put up with.

"That's it? So why do I need QT?"

You don't. The process above is all that's involved in spending coins. Everything else is window dressing. So there is no need to run QT, or any other client. Oh, and since you can download the site and run it locally (mostly offline), there is no security issue beyond the usual keyloggers/spyware that can compromise anything. And by knowing how to do this, you are much better protected from accidental loss than someone who blindly trusts black boxes they don't understand.
Oh, one final thing... if you really want to help the network by seeding rather than leeching, go ahead and run a full node. Instructions are in that link above. AND you may want to help seed the bootstrap file torrent from a couple of days ago. Just because YOU don't need it, doesn't mean others don't, right?

Of Wolves and Weasels - Day 33 - A Fun Way Forward

Hey all, GoodShibe here!
It started out simple enough. I'd first heard about Burger Bear here on the sub in this thread. It turned out that they were one of a few restaurants that seemed actively interested in accepting Dogecoin. It seemed like a really cool idea so I casually put forward an offer:
If anyone wanted a burger there, let me know and I'll buy them one.
And while that offer was still hanging in the air, I thought 'hey, why not do a solid for some hungry person in London?' So I hopped on twitter and sent 8K DOGE (the cost of a burger there) to @BurgerBearTom just to give to some random person.
As it turns out, my earlier offer had also been accepted, by elemesh. It was too late in the day to grab one, but I left the offer open, if he wanted one, just send me a PM anytime and we'd work it out.
Soelemesh did. At 6am EST the next day.
See, I'm not in London. I'm on a whole other continent.
And I'd just woken up. In fact, I was just starting to prep my Of Wolves and Weasels post for the day when I saw it - a casual PM about how I probably wasn't going to be awake anyway but if I was, he was going to be heading out for lunch in a couple of hours and figured he might as well head up that way. Well, since I was up, I shot back a PM... and that turned out into a whole flurry of PMs as he made his way there and got on site and such.
Again, I tipped the money to @BurgerBeartom via @tipdoge on Twitter. I thought it would just be a bit of a laugh, but the whole process - even though I'm a whole continent away - it turned out be an incredibly easy, really fun and, frankly, satisfying experience.
Needless to say, my laugh turned into a 'hmmm' after elemesh posted this thread.
And then felloutboy who'd also, apparently, stopped by there and had one, shared these:
http://imgur.com/a/HKbtp
And then he sent me this:
http://imgur.com/2TG7IUK
It was actually a really inspiring moment - so, thank you for that felloutboy!
I realized I still had a small chunk of change kicking around from moolah_'s and allthegoodunsaregone's massive tips/donations a while back. So I thought: I wonder if I put up for offer 10 free burgers at BurgerBear, paid for with Dogecoins, would there be any takers?
So I launched this thread.
And then realized, sadly, that by the time I'd had this little brainwave of mine, things were starting to close up proper over in the UK. Blarg.
Yesterday morning at 6am I got up extra early and put up this thread and cross-posted it to /London.
I wanted to know if it was possible, so I set aside 80,000 DOGE, had it ready to rip and went to see if anyone would take me up on the offer.
In the end, 7 out of the 10 burgers were claimed:
mitosan
shamess
imjustjoshing (and friends)
gargoylenz
Adjam
And it was a great deal of fun, coordinating with each of them as they made their way to BurgerBear - Adjam had trekked there from the other side of London to get his - and getting them all to the pub (@TheOldNunsHead) where - as it turns out - @BurgerBearTom was hosting his birthday bash.
It also turned out, as adjam later pointed out to me, to be Ðoge Day (02/08)!
In fact, if there's one theme to the whole day, it's that 'the timing ended up working out really well'.
Because there also ended up being a bit of a Dogecoin mini-meetup, as two groups actually got together and snapped this:
http://imgur.com/aJbVoyI
And This:
http://i.imgur.com/ELOBuBa.jpg
Inspired by how this was all playing out so well, I hopped on twitter and spread the news
Immediately, @Adult and @PeterOdeus chimed in on the conversation. Next thing I know, retweets and favorites are flying, lots of general cheer and merriment -- and then @Adult asked if they could kick in some Doge to help feed the locals.
Well, @BurgerBearTom posted his donation address
And then... yeah.
Donations
Donations everywhere
Which caught Tom a bit by surprise
Over 200K tipped!
Pics from what came next:
Mmmm!
Looks like
They had
Some fun!
And on his Birthday Bash, no less. I'm sure it was going to be a busy night... I like to think that maybe we helped push it over the top... a bit.
By the end of the night, outside of the 56k DOGE sent his way from the morning, he'd gotten another 250,000+ in random DOGE tips.
Tom seemed pleased
The funny thing about this is that I'd been wracking my skull trying to find ways to reach out - to get Dogecoin outside of this sub, how to make real connections with people.
It's food.
Good Food
Good food, great times, merriment - showing folks that this crazy, silly 'internet money' can turn into hot, delicious food -- or, as gargoylenz discovered, a tall frosty pint of beer -- before your very eyes.
Sharing in the merriment, creating memories together -- that's the next step. That's how we move Dogecoin forward - little by little. Winning hearts and minds as we go.
I now know what my next goal is and, I think you're all going to like it.
You see, I had a bit of a conversation with Tom - how he'd gotten into Bitcoin as sort of a marketing thing, to see if he couldn't drum up some more business. It worked, but he wasn't getting all that much. But DOGE... Doge had been, so far, a huge success. People were showing up and they were buying. And they were enthusiastic.
Now, if that doesn't describe my fellow Shibes, I don't know what will.
So, now that I'm all sorts of inspired by this whole thing, here's what I want to do:
I want to find more restaurants that will accept Dogecoin and give them our business.
I want restaurant owners to see that if they support us, we'll support them.
Get them to take a chance on us and have it pay off in a big way.
I don't have a TON of DOGE left, but here's what I'm going to do - we can think of this sort of like a DOGE FOOD faucet.
I've created /DogeFood
Right now, I have... 150,000 DOGE left.
If you can find a restaurant in your area that will let you pay in DOGE, I will buy you something to eat.
Much of this is going on the honor system - I'll try to vet everyone, but I'm trusting you all.
The rules are as follows:
  1. Set it up with me BEFORE you go. If you just show up with a bill and expect to have it paid, it will not happen.
  2. Put me in touch with the owner of said restaurant (website, twitter, etc).
  3. We'll put together a plan and make it happen.
  4. You must document the whole trip in photo and/or video and share it with the community.
  5. I'll pay the base check in DOGE, you pay the tip (in whatever currency you like).
  6. Not a 'rule' but: This sub will rely entirely on the generosity of the community. If you have a meal bought for you, thank the community and please pay it forward.
Sound fair?
I want to thank everyone involved in this whole crazy day, it seems like there've been some incredibly positive experiences made with Dogecoin, and I want to see more of them happen.
Let's use our DOGE to make some memories, fill some bellies and add just a touch more merriment and joy to the world.
It's 8:01AM EST and we're at 46.60% of DOGEs found. Our Global Hashrate is on a sharp rise from ~97 to ~100 Gigahashes per second and our Difficulty is spiking from ~1386 to ~1495.
Oh! Before I go I want to give a shout out to zimonitrome the winner of the Dogecoin Hype Video Contest - if you haven't yet seen it, it's a fantastic effort and 'Ð is for Dogecoin' definitely deserved the top spot. Check it out HERE
Also, in case you missed it, here's how Dogecoin is doing in the news:
Finally, if you're looking to spend some DOGEs, consider checking out:
As always, I appreciate your support!
GoodShibe
TL;DR: Bought some people on the other side of the world some free Burgers with Doge. It blew up into a big thing.
EDIT 2: That didn't take long! There's a donut drive on the go on Twitter for Strange Donuts right now! 40k raised already! Amazing!
EDIT: felloutboy just shared "I'll be back buying lunch there next week only this time I'll give him real cash. He's losing money on the dogecoin sales because he's saving up what he gets in doge and bitcoin to fund a local charitable project." -- can we maybe see about getting him some local news coverage? An article or something. Let's get him some good promotion to drive some cash sales as well! :D)

Overstock.com just started accepting bitcoins ahead of schedule

As the artice was released there was a quick crash on all markets, Don't know if it was a whale looking to crash before the news hit or what happened but either way I just changed flair.
http://www.wired.com/business/2014/01/overstock-bitcoin-live/
Overstock.com is now accepting payments in bitcoin, making it the first major online retailer to embrace the increasingly popular but controversial digital currency.
Since December, Overstock’s free-thinking CEO and chairman, Patrick Byrne, has been telling anyone who would listen that his company would adopt bitcoin sometime in the next six months. But Byrne is an impatient man. Last Tuesday, the company struck a deal to handle bitcoin payments through a service operated by the suddenly hot San Francisco startup Coinbase, and since then, a team of Overstock engineers has worked almost every waking hour to prepare the site for what is undeniably a key moment in the digital currency’s short history.
“I felt I had tipped my hand,” Byrne says. “I didn’t want someone else to beat us.” ‘I felt I had tipped my hand. I didn’t want someone else to beat us.’
— Patrick Byrne
So, just minutes ago, Overstock started accepting bitcoin payments for everything it sells, from laptops and TVs to faucets and bar stools. Byrne believes this can ultimately boost the company’s bottom line, but that’s not his only aim. For Byrne, a rather opinionated libertarian who’s unafraid to take his company places others fear to tread, embracing the cryptocurrency is as much a political statement as a business decision. Like so many others, he believes bitcoin can free the world from the control of big banks and big government. “It helps us fight the machine,” he says.

[GIVEAWAY] Para quem nunca ouviu falar de criptomoedas, ou quer experimentar uma versão mais soft das bitcoins - DOGECOINS!

EDIT: Wow tantos comentários
Olá a todos! Este tópico será para enviar dogecoins a todos aqueles que desejarem e também para testar o "bot das gorjetas" no portugal. Acho que fazermos uma pausa da conversa das praxes faz-nos bem a todos.
Mas antes, comecemos do início:
O QUE SÃO CRIPTOMOEDAS?!
As criptomoedas são um meio digital de troca, tendo começado com as Bitcoins em 2009. As informações a reter são:
Um exemplo desta volatilidade: No início de 2013 um bitcoin valia ~9.5€, e em dezembro um mesmo bitcoin já valia cerca de ~905€. Esta variação de valor pode parecer atractiva, mas também fez da comunidade uma comunidade mais séria, focada apenas no lucro e egoísmo.
É aqui que entram as Dogecoins
OK, BITCOINS SÃO FIXES, MAS O QUE SÃO DOGECOINS E O QUE TÊM DE ESPECIAL?
As Dogecoins são uma variação das Litecoins, que por sua vez são uma variação de Bitcoins. Como o código Bitcoin é open-source na teoria (e práctica) qualquer pessoa pode fazer a sua própria moeda. As Litecoins foram feitas como uma espécie de prata ao "ouro do bitcoin", e têm sido a base da maior parte de criptomoedas alternativas criadas.
As Dogecoins, criadas no início de Dezembro de 2013, começaram por ser uma forma de paródia de todas as outras criptomoedas alternativas que têm surgido (sexcoin, bbqcoin, etc), usando o meme Doge como inspiração.
Contudo, a paródia começou a tornar-se bem real, porque ao contrário de Bitcoins e Litecoins, que fomentam a acumulação das mesmas criptomoedas com o pensamento de que irão valer mais no futuro, as Dogecoins existem em muito maior quantidade, e têm sido usadas muito mais como moeda de troca do que como investimento (que é, afinal de contas, o objectivo inicial destas criptomoedas!)
As dogecoins também tornaram-se a criptomoeda de eleição para enviar gorjetas, através do reddit, twitter, imgur e até SMS.
Por último, a comunidade Dogecoin no reddit tem demonstrado ser a mais generosa, tendo doado dinheiro para a equipa da Jamaica poder ir às Olimpíadas, assim como o atleta da Índia e outras variadas doações.
E é por isso que estou aqui! Para partilhar com vocês algumas dogecoins de forma generosa!
RECEBI DOGECOINS ATRAVÉS DO BOT, O QUE FAÇO AGORA?!
Sigam as instrucções aqui. Basicamente: - Quando receberem a gorjeta (através de uma mensagem privada de confirmação), enviem uma mensagem com +accept para o bot - O bot têm andando bastante sobrecarregado por isso pode demorar algum tempo entre eu comentar e vocês receberem uma mensagem de confirmação! (Pode demorar mais de 16h :O ) - Se ainda não receberam nenhuma gorjeta mas já se querem registar com o bot, enviem uma mensagem com +register para o bot - Depois, saquem o cliente oficial dogecoin, esperem que sincronize com a rede, e cliquem em "Much Receive". Podem usar o endereço existente (uma série de números e letras) ou criar um novo. Esse será o vosso endereço público para receber dogecoins. Para enviar as dogecoins que receberam no reddit para esse endereço, enviem uma mensagem com withdraw, colocando o vosso endereço onde diz "ADDRESS".
E é tudo! O que podem fazer com dogecoins? Podem comprar produtos e serviços de forma rápida e segura! Alguns websites que listam empresas e serviços que aceitam dogecoins:
DESTE-ME BUÉ POUCAS DOGECOINS. COMO CONSIGO MAIS?
De muitas formas! Podes:

The prophesy of Raiblocks

Someone told me, Raiblocks would be #1 market cap on August 7th, He was told by a man long before him, and even Colin was whispered August 7th in his dreams in 2014.
The prophesy was, Raiblocks would start out equally distributed, The developers must never hoard Rai, they must give through faucets to the parts of the world which needed it most. And they did. They must give it out to the people whenever they help move Raiblocks along through technology, not through shilling. And they did. They must never advertise Raiblocks or push for it to be added to new exchanges, the community must back it. They did.
For this, one favor was granted to Raiblocks, a plague to wipe out all of the over-ambitious, bloated whitepaper, vaporware coins. Raiblocks would be immune to the plague, and other coins of merit would also survive, but Raiblocks would come out least beaten.
The plague would hit just a few days before Rai was put onto a new more popular exchange, Rai would rise from the ashes of the fallen alt-coin and sitteth on the right hand of Bitcoin, until Raiblocks and bitcoin were synonymous, and then we forgot bitcoin.
I believe this is the plague boys, The Korean market has been hit, but we aren't in the Korean market. Hodl strong.
Have faith.

Man, five years already!

I discovered crypto on New Years 2014 (saw an ad for a Bitcoin miner on a Chinese site and though "WTF is that!"), tried to get some Bitcoin from a faucet and saw that wasn't going anywhere, found about Dogecoin later that day and was very pleased that I was able to get a few Doge from a faucet that very same day. Started looking around for more info and opened this account after lurking for a few days, and the rest is, as they say, history.
Have a great 2019 fellow shibes, and keep being the great group you are, through thick and thin.

How did you get into bitcoin?

Just curious how you all ended up here. How did you find out about this technology?
I got here because of a bitcoin faucet site (I think in 2014) which started to sponsor twitch streamers and spend hours clicking through ads and doing surveys to make some free bucks. I had heard of the technology before but didn’t bother to check it out because it was to complicated for me until I found that faucet. Now I hodl for the fun of it.
What is your story?
