    I’ve used Link more than anyone outside Kevlar (most likely – let’s check the blockchain!) and that’s probably the reason I see things differently than those voicing opposition to a blockchain agnostic free market approach. There also was no opposition to the blockchain agnostic approach when it was announced prior to Link even becoming a reality.

    I would have liked feathercoin to have had a longer run before other coins were introduced, but that really wasn’t the point of my posts, I think that is quite clear.

    And another reality is, [b]this is Kevlar’s baby[/b] and he’s welcome to do with it what he likes.
    [/quote]

    of course he is, at what point did I suggest otherwise?

    [quote author=Tuck Fheman link=topic=6518.msg49686#msg49686 date=1388832823]
    It’s not cool to put Kevlar in a position where he feels anything but joy for doing this for humanity. No one else did, he did. So chill out, please.
    [/quote]

    This comment is ridiculous. I am saying the best way to promote feathercoin right now is by telling people about the product Kevlar created, so what ‘position’ am I putting him in? Also, if you had bothered to read my posts properly, you would realise that none of my comments were directed at him.

    Instead of complaining in this thread about “lack of promotion” for [s]a blockchain agnostic app[/s] FTC, why not go promote it?
    [/quote]

    Again, read the posts, you do like to make a lot of assumptions.

    Sorry for stupid question, but how to download the torrent in link?

    i.e. I click Liberator schematic, my Bittorrent launch, but then it end with white screen and nothing is happening.

    EDIT: it is working now

    When did you donated? Kevlar is real-life person so he can’t observe his wallet 24/7…

    Yeah I understand he’s hoarding cr*pcoins, but maybe he can exchange a few zoo-coins (dog,cat,horses, whatever) for FTC and then use Link? Is that more expensive?

    Also here’s my bitcointalk thread about this: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=398745.new#new

    I’m very sorry that’s happening for you. The code relies on socket.io to populate that area, is there something going on with your firewall that would prevent a websocket connection? What browser are you using?

    Status update:

    The CoinAccount code for doing multi currency wallets is at 80%. I’ve not run a single line of it yet, but I know it’ll all work as designed (yeah right!).

    I plan on finishing it today, and moving on to Streaming API, and refacotring the code for Doge and Cat coin support.

    I’ll probably post with another status update later today.

    vs USD : look at the price of FTC. Look at the price of DOGE. That’s why, and get this … it’s that price for everyone! 😉

    vs Supply : I have a lot more DOGE than FTC.

    so, soon dogecoin and catcoin will also be able to use link, all the while, feathercoin is getting zero publicity, i am shocked at how this is being handled, it should be shouted from the rooftops but at the moment it feels like a horse trapped in the starting gate.

    poor form guys.

    I understand you’re emotionally responding because you feel that your investment has somehow been threatened. The problem I have is [b]this is about Link, not Feathercoin[/b]. For me, it never was about Feathercoin, it’s about Link. This thread … it’s about Link, not Feathercoin.

    Again, I do understand your response and I fully understand from where it has risen. I disagree 100% with your sentiment however and I hope I’m never stranded somewhere with you while you hoard all of the food so others don’t get it first (and you’d be willing to overpay A LOT to hoard all that food – so economically speaking I couldn’t get along w/u either). lulz

    The point I was making about Kevlar is … he doesn’t need to have to deal w/these comments (so I am). Why come into his thread and start complaining about what he’s doing … because it’s not going the way [i]you[/i] wanted? Perhaps you missed out on the early discussion for Link, but this was all decided beforehand and Kevlar made it very clear up front and those who donated to get the project going got what they wanted, Link … a blockchain agnostic protocol.

    I’d also add that I and I’m assuming zerodrama did you guys a favor by donating (our FTC) for DogeCoin and Catcoin support. Now you won’t have to spend your FTC to post to Link, but you still can. If you want to destroy your FTC to possibly increase the price of FTC in the future … go for it! No one’s stopping you. I’d rather destroy my “worthless Dogecoin” to submit to Link and keep my precious FTC as an investment. But that’s just me.

    [sub]And let’s not forget the fact that “Feathercoin” openly wanted to ban Kevlar from this forum, yet [u]Kevlar still did this for Feathercoin first[/u]. He’s a better man than I.[/sub]

    I don’t think it would be appropriate for us to try and get disproportionate publicity over this. I have mentioned this project to two journalists including Danny at Coindesk. I would rather take this slow. The problem is if you jump up and down over a story like this with a catchy headline people end up buying on a rumour and hype and then get disapointed when the market wakes up and realises that it isn’t exclusive to feathercoin and the whale on BTCe milks it and accumulates more coins.

    If you insist on getting rich, do it slowly in a way that is sustainable.

    Sure, Kevlar can do what he wants with it.
    But you shouldn’t be advocating that worthless coin in this forum. I’m sure your dogcoin has a forum somewhere probably.
    Here it’s about Feathercoin.

    Dogecoin is best coin. Much love. Wow.

    [sup]Ok, I probably messed that up since I really have no clue on the meme… so I probably sound like an old guy trying to be cool and hip with the young kids…[/sup]

    Anyway - Tuck can talk and advocate for anything he likes on here. We are coin agnostic.
    In fact, trash talking other devs and coins is against our rules. Although constructive criticism is fine.

    As for Dogecoin - I support it. They’ve done a lot in a very short period of time for the crypto-community. Crap-coin or not, you cannot deny the fact that about 50% more neckbeards are now aware of what crypto-currency is and will consider it normal to pay in WhateverCoin three years from now when they’re finally able to sign up on porn websites without asking to use their mom’s credit card.

    +1 Everyone!

    [sup]PS. Yes anon, I said neckbeard. lulz![/sup]

    Here, right here, this thread right here … it’s about Link. Dogecoin is a coin supported by Link. Therefore I speak of Dogecoin because it and coins like it are the best solutions for publishing on Link.

    Try posting a few hundred links, hell a few thousand magnet links into Link (I doubt it takes that many) with FTC and let’s see how you feel about Link adoption for “crap coins”.

    To me, you guys are suffering from cognitive dissonance.

    want FTC, but want to destroy it.
    want cryptocurrency, but fighting against a free market.
    want a tool that is all about freedom and liberty, but want it all for yourself.
    can mine a coin considered “crap” and then use that “crap” to publish on Link for a tiny fraction of FTC … don’t want that because … “crap”.

    That does not compute for me, sorry.

    As long as CoinAccount supports Dogecoin and Catcoin first and does not allow another coins adoption for a specified time, I’ll be happy.

    [/quote]

    My comment was directed towards the general theme being expressed in this thread by several individuals.

    In regards to the “marketing team” … I’ve been promoting (and donating FTC to) Link since day 1. So, please forgive me if I take offense to the, “poor form” comments and others insinuating no one is promoting Link or Link’s use with Feathercoin. And btw, YOU and the rest of us are the Feathercoin marketing team … not “Chris”. Chris does what he does on his own (like you and I can) because that’s what Chris wants to do. No one assigned Chris a job and said, “you must promote Feathercoin and every idea that pops up on the forum”, Chris just does it because he believes in Feathercoin (like you, I assume).

    So, be more like Chris and just go promote Feathercoin if you think it’s lacking promotion. [b]I do it daily, do you?[/b] It’s easy to complain about a perceived lack, it’s a unique individual that can take it upon themselves to do something about it (see Chris, Kevlar, zerodrama, nutnut, Bush and a lot of others on this forum).
