  Holochain - Like Blockchain, but faster and more scalable
Posted by: Jacob - 2018-01-15, 06:25 AM - Forum: Bitcoin and Altcoin - Replies (13)

Holo everyone. I have been following on and off a project called "Holochain" which aims to be much faster and scalable than blockchain technology.

I first came across Arthur Brock and the Holochain concept while reading this article:
https://medium.com/metacurrency-project/...223154d783

He then mentioned he was working on a technology called Holochain in the comments. I have read his writings for a few months now.

They are currently having an ICO whitelist registration for Holo fuel.

Here are a few links from their site to more information:
https://holo.host/
https://holo.host/greenpaper
https://holochain.org/
https://holochain.org/whitepaper
https://holo.host/faq

From the FAQ:

Q: What is Holochain?
A: Holochain is an alternative to blockchain which is faster and more scalable designed for running distributed applications
Q: Why use Holochain instead of blockchain?
A:

  1. It’s faster: Since Holochain apps don’t have to sync everyone on the network for every little change that happens, they can run much faster than apps that use blockchains.
  2. It’s more efficient: Not needing to have everyone make a copy of every change makes Holochain exponentially more efficient and affordable. This means Holochain can be used for things that blockchain cannot address, such as accounting for microtransactions.2
  3. It’s scalable: Holochain can support applications with billions of simultaneous users thanks to its parallel architecture.
  4. It’s adaptable: Users can adapt apps and protocols to meet their needs.
  5. It’s extendable: Users can extend applications by linking them to other applications.  Anything a user can read out of one app, they can write into another.
Q: When will Holo go on the Blockchain?
A: Never. Holo is built on Holochain, an alternative approach to blockchain which is faster and more scalable.

Except for maybe Hashgraph, which is a closed source project, Holochain is the most promising project that I have come across so far, but is still in Alpha, so we have to wait and see if they can deliver what they have promised and then even if they do, there is no guarantee that Holo Fuel will go up greatly in price like Ether or NEO Gas. This is because Holo Fuel is generated on a system of mutual credit, which as far as I l know hasn't been done with cryptos before, so I don't know how much this asset can go up.

I am going to be joining the ICO, one of the reasons being because I would like to develop on this platform. They have already said Holo is going to be a stable value at all times without too many fluctuations. Also they can exchange Holo Fuel for Blockchain Cryptos at anytime.

I am not sure of the returns, because this is not an inherently deflationary currency like Bitcoin or Ethereum. It could be the technology that the next Facebook is written on, or it could be something that is ignored. There is not much hype surrounding this project, so it is hard to tell if it will come to anything.

It would be great if the people from this forum could let me know their opinions about Holo and investing in its ICO. I am currently weighing up how much to put into the ICO, so that would be a great help.

  Rimbit user on Github?
Posted by: Carsten - 2018-01-13, 03:20 PM - Forum: Rimbit Talk - Replies (9)

Junior told me that on Github a user signed up with the name Rimbit yesterday. https://github.com/Rimbit. Note that the user is linking to this forum.

Some days ago we saw the RimbitWhaleScam user on Twitter.

It's really something after 2 years of nothing.

Come forward and tell your story!

  Uphold.com - Simple, Cheap, Convenient way to buy Cryptos with Fiat
Posted by: Jacob - 2018-01-13, 06:36 AM - Forum: Bitcoin and Altcoin - Replies (4)

Uphold.com is useful for buying Cryptos like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, BAT.

This is my go-to option these days for buying with fiat. Unfortunately, I need to make a SWIFT bank deposit each time, because I'm in Australia, but it's still a lot cheaper than buying locally.

European and American Crypto buyers are set, because they recently reactivated Credit Card purchases (which cost an extra 4%) , but it still works out a lot cheaper than Coinbase.

You don't hear much about this company in the Crypto world, mainly because they don't have an affiliate program, unlike Changelly and Coinbase.

Lightbulb Simple method to pick undervalued coins
Posted by: Jacob - 2018-01-12, 08:40 PM - Forum: Bitcoin and Altcoin - Replies (4)

This is a method I use to see which coins are undervalued

Visit Coingecko.com
Click on "Developer" column heading to sort by developer activity score
This shows the developer activity for open source projects on github
Coins with more developer activity, less public interest and less market cap are the most undervalued coins.
Coins with less developer activity, more public interest and more market cap are the ones with less room to grow.

I wish someone would have told me about this technique six months ago.

They can ban trading, but it will never stop. We need crypto as alternative to the banking system.
