Who hosts the Rimbit nodes?
#1
This is something we never got around to ask the liar Marcelo Karlsson about before he shut us out of his dictatorship, but reading his FB post it seems like he's in charge: https://www.facebook.com/Rimbitcoin/phot...=3&theater

I don't understand this nodes thingy on a technical level. If he's in control (or several other individuals) then how can Rimbit ever become a decentralized currency? I don't understand how this can ever work if someone has to pay a bill for Rimbit to stay online.

I think he is bluffing and scamming users again.

He also said in the old forum that now Rimbit is out it can not be stopped as long as the wallets are running.

He is running out of money and tries every dirty trick he can to get some to buy his by now worthless Rimbit....
Cardano is the most promising 3 gen. crypto right now.

So you think he's lying when he claims that the network went down once?

CH told a lie?????? No way!!!

As I understand it, if we all switch off our wallets then there may be not enough processing power to confirm transactions - that is why we get interest - it is really a payment for us to keep our wallets on line and so help transaction complete in a quick manner. I guess that these nodes have many times the power of our wallets and this action means that even if we all switched our wallets offline, the rimbit network would still work fine.

No, CH won't tell a lie... Never! It is ByreStraits who is doing his magic against the node with one hand while dumping Rimbits with the other... Multitasking. lol

Yeah but Rimbit is premined and don't require the power of a Bitcoin miner. Our wallets do the validation. 

Tw0t took a backup of the blockchain. I will talk to him tomorrow.

Sadly because of lack of time I haven't looked at the code behind the Rimbit system and therefore don't understand all the details. Maybe there could be a surprise hidden in the code.

I hope your conversation with Tw0t will shine some light on the situation.
I plan having a conversation whit him too. Via skype or maybe it would be worth the ride to a place closer where he is.
Have to think about it.

As I said, I am also only an amateur regarding cryptos. As far as I understand, we can't take over the network with a number of miners as in a negotiation over the right to sign a transaction always the one having the most coins has the better chance of winning. So you still have the lottery system in minting, just using the age of the coins you possess instead of doing some actual cpu-intensive work.

So, this is where PoS coins actually claim to be more secure than mining coins.

This means however too, that I will not be able to rewrite the blockchain even if I woudl be using it on my own network. Therefore, my copy has only archival value. It allows us though to see, who had owned how much and artificially re-create this specific distribution.

I assume the code is sound as it has barely any changes in comparison to the novacoin code. There are only some small renamings and initial values, which have been changed as well as updates propagated from other coins. It could be a thought to contact the original person who adapted the coin and ask his opinion, what would be the easiest way for us to derive a community coin. He claimed an hourly rate on guru of $30 per hour. So maybe we could get this info from him fairly cheap.

Thanks, Hugues!

Doesn't the liar Marcelo Karlsson contradict himself when he says that the Rimbit network is 100% in the hands of the community (a lie, but let's assume it's true for this example) so no individual(s) can take it down, but then on the other hand the network's survival is dependent on whether he pays a bill to a centralized hosting company? He's never been great at explaining what goes on inside his 180 IQ brain, but who does he think should pay this bill for all eternity? This simply can't be a part of a decentralized network.
