FTC's future


  • Regular Member

    Ok guys and gals, I’m a little worried about my investment in FTC. With all these FTC pools shutting down, is this a warning sign? Need some input from you guys… Where is FTC headed?


  • Regular Member

    Ive thought about this too. Im trying to keep the mindset of “oh look, cheap coins!” but its hard to say. Id like to hear plans and opinions of others…



  • I m just buying more and consider all of that as a best investment ever made. So far I have about 150K with a plan to exchange some of them for BTC maybe in 2018 or later. Let’s face it if FTC die then complete crypto will die. I consider FTC as a member of top 5 coins list.


  • Regular Member

    Really top 5? I agree with that also, but it seems as if the rest of the world doesn’t…


  • Regular Member

    Personally, I only hold about 5 different coins (Bitcoin, Litecoin, Feathercoin, Primecoin and a few others that I lump together as less than 1% of my holdings). I Like Bitcoin because it was “the first”, Litecoin is nice because its much faster, Feathercoin is faster yet PLUS its GPU mineable now, and Primecoin does (slightly) more than just wasteful hashing.

    At the moment ALL crypto is in a slump and I think thats because people heard about others being able to run a program and make money, lots of it. Everyone thought it was their way to become rich over night but when they realized its not that easy or simple they sold and left which is where we are today.

    I think what Feathercoin needs is either the price to go up or difficulty to go down making it profitable to mine again. Watch the forums, people are hearing about bitcoin and with some quick searching findout that you can mine them with a computer. The come to the forums and soon realize that CPU/GPU mining is long past for Bitcoin. Its at that point they should be looking here…

    Hello friends,

    We are having live discussion in our team Slack.

    The next steps will be:

    A, eliminating APC

    B, switching officially to Lizhi’s core wallet

    C, add 0% POS to more secure the network

    D, add SX (anonymous transaction)

    This coin will not die.

    If you have any questions to proposed changes or another idea in mind, please speak now.



  • add 50% PoS



  • I agree the current price slump looks bad. But if you look across the board crypto price is down and ALTs are hit worse as worried holders swap back to the “safety” of the larger coin(BTC).

    So in my opinion this really isn’t anything we as a coin have done such as the switch to neoscrypt. This can be proved by looking at other coins that have made no recent changes such as woroldcoin who have historically has a similar price to us and they have been hit just as hard.
    Its simply reduced demand which has pushed down price. FTC is going know where.

    I know I keep banging on about it, but a roadmap would help. As a Dev team we look forward with our plans, but it’s easy to forget that everyone needs to see a clear vision for our future too. I’d like to make sure you you all see under the hood, it’s super important. :)

    Have you noticed how none of these responses offers any actual insight into the current situation? It’s all just opinion with no technical analysis, no justification, and statements without evidence.

    Hello friends,

    We are having live discussion in our team Slack.

    The next steps will be:

    A, eliminating APC

    B, switching officially to Lizhi’s core wallet

    C, add 0% POS to more secure the network

    D, add SX (anonymous transaction)

    You can’t do B unless you do A. And you can’t do A unless you do C. And you can’t do C because you have no one capable who’s willing to step up and do it. So this is, at best, a long way away, and at worst, never going to happen.

    This coin will not die.

    The tech, or the blockchain?

    The blockchain is dead in the water, and nothing you listed with revive it. The problems it faces are economic, so if you’re worried about the economics of the blockchain, then you have very little hope. If you’re interested in discussing the technical of why that is from an economic standpoint, we certainly can. This is not a matter of opinion, you can apply basic economic theory to highlight the problems with hyper-inflation coupled with centralization of wealth and a lack of appeal to a rapidly changing market brought about by a move away from investors.

    The tech is being re-purposed as we speak, as it has been tested, battle-hardened, and proven in the field. The coin technology won’t die, but the value in the existing blockchain has been destroyed by a number of factors and no amount of tech can hope to revive it, because the problems are economic, not technical in nature, and none of these guys are economists.

    Finally some criticism



  • That’s depressing kevlar.
    I always love your nuggets of clarity.

    That’s depressing kevlar.
    I always love your nuggets of clarity.

    I really don’t agree.

    I mean I suppose it is if you have some emotional attachment to the economic value of the blockchain. We have a word for when someone is emotionally invested in wealth: Greed.

    Personally I’m so much more excited by the understanding gained through the process, the trying and testing and evolution and resulting hardening of the technology, and the hard lessons learned efforts of the community to produce new technology to deal with the ongoing needs of a rapidly changing market. The experiment has been, and continues to be a GRAND success full of learning. It’s through these failure that we learn what does and does not work, and we have learned sooooo much in that regard.

    I just can’t wait to see what happens next with the technology, and the community. That has ALWAYS been where ALL the value lies, which is what I’ve always claimed.

    If you’re surprised by the economic state of the blockchain, then you’ve not been paying any attention for the past two years as to the direction the coin has been repeatedly taken. This should come as no surprise at this late stage of the game.

    Have you noticed how none of these responses offers any actual insight into the current situation? It’s all just opinion with no technical analysis, no justification, and statements without evidence.

    Looking forward to your analysis and outlook into feathercoins future.

    Unfortunately I didn’t see anything of it in your responses up to now. Is it work in progress?



  • Might I just add that we are now on Slack to streamline productivity. What you see below is a carefully selected snippet to not give to much away. But I can assure you. The team ain’t going anywhere…

  • WARNING what is stated below is my personal opinion and does not necessarily reflect the views and beliefs of the Feathercoin team or the Feathercoin community as a whole.

    The problem is that world has no idea what we are doing in the background.

    It is that simple.

    Feathercoin is an R and D coin. Like all coins they make mistakes but we are different in the sense that we learn from our mistakes.

    Sorry team for giving out some secrets without consulting you first but the world deserves a chance to have a peek at what is going on…

    The screen cap above is but the tip of the iceberg… No one has any idea what is in store for 2015…

    So do you wanna have some fun with speculation? Listen to this. (Do Not go and buy ftc based on this btw, if you are not a miner I personally couldn’t care less about you)

    With that said. We all needed a deserved break over the New Year / Christmas period so please forgive our stagnation.

    I’m not promising, I’m telling, everyone that while I am here, Feathercoin can’t die. Because Feathercoin is more then just a token. It is a group of passionate people searching for a better world… and money isn’t our incentive.

    After a long debate over many weeks with the team, I’m proud to report that, we have many new projects in the works… Including something that If we can successfully pull of, is bigger then any tech developed in cryptos, ever. This isn’t a tech I’m talking about, but the most organic voting method ever conceived. We are still divided on the subject, but one day, all cryptos will be faced with a cross road…

    So just to reiterate. We have been hard at work in the background this entire time and the grand social experiment of the 21st Century has not even BEGUN.

    Unfortunately I didn’t see anything of it in your responses up to now. Is it work in progress?

    Nope. I’m not here to do your job for you. I’m just trying to provide you with the facts, which are free from opinion, based on scientific method and economic theory. Any analysis of these facts is strictly left as an exercise to the reader.

    As I said in my initial post:

    If you’re interested in discussing the technical of why that is from an economic standpoint, we certainly can. This is not a matter of opinion, you can apply basic economic theory to highlight the problems with hyper-inflation coupled with centralization of wealth and a lack of appeal to a rapidly changing market brought about by a move away from investors.

    I’ve no interest in teaching everyone here economic theory; ya’ll can go to college for that. Those three factors I’ve listed are quantifiable facts which do not require opinion or emotion to be demonstrated beyond all reasonable doubt: The coin experienced hyper-inflation (too much supply, not enough demand), centralization of wealth (Kraken/BTC-e), and suffers from a serious lack of appeal to a rapidly changing market brought about by a move away from investors and towards centralization (NeoScrypt and ACP, but mostly NeoScrypt). The outcome of that is the price reaches new lows constantly, and the volume has drained out of the exchanges entirely.

    These are just facts. They’re not my opinion, and they’re not an analysis of the future of the coin, but the inescapable conclusion is that unless these factors which are impacting the price are mitigatedrumo, the direction of the price cannot change.

    It’s also an inescapable conclusion that no tech, current, suggested, or theorized to date, will address these economic pressures, since nothing current, suggested, or theorized to date has been designed to address these economic issues, only technology issues like the 51% attack vector. Often times these decisions are justified using entirely fallacious logic that might lead the gullible into the conclusion that these would in fact have a positive economic impact when really it’s simply about centralization of power and boosting ego.******[Edit: Text parital removed as it violated Forum Rule:Section1 rule 3] **Things like “ASICs are centralized, but CPU/GPU mining isn’t.” when exactly the opposite is true: Legit ASICs farms are in massive competition with each other, but CPU/GPU mining is entirely dominated by illegal Botnets; People can compete with ASICs on a free market, but Botnets are are available on the black market at a scale, and more to the point, at a price point that no hobbyist miner can hope to compete with, and are extremely illegal. Yet people bought this lie hook, line, and sinker. And by people, I mean the few left hanging around here, not the market at large. The market at large saw right through this lie and ignored it.

    If someone wants to bring up a specific point I’ve mentioned for further in-depth analysis, please do. I’ve given you three keywords to work from: hyper-inflation, centralization of wealth, and lack of appeal to a rapidly changing market brought about by a move away from investors.

    Which one don’t you understand or would like more information on?

    Because Feathercoin is more then just a token. It is a group of passionate people searching for a better world… and money isn’t our incentive.

    Feathercoin… wasn’t ever a ‘token’. A token is a placeholder for value, or something that you can exchange for value. Feathercoin has direct value without being a placeholder for anything. It was always a tech, a blockchain, and a community. The blockchain has all but died due to terrible mismanagement. The community is about the same as it ever was. The tech is slowly playing catch up with the state of the art, but it’s certainly not making any forrays into the future without some serious development effort.

    and money isn’t our incentive

    What if it was?

    Seriously, what if we were trying to make money doing this? I can assure you you’d attract a much higher caliber of coder, and a lot more attention to the project. All the good developers are searching for projects that pay, why aren’t we trying to find ways to attract them? Other organizations are making money doing this, why are we so afraid of profit?

    So, refresh my memory, why is that a good thing again? Seems to me things would be a lot more sunny if we were making money.


  • Regular Member

    I agree with Kevlar. We are money.

    So this quote, well, lets pretend it never happend…

    money isn’t our incentive



  • I’m greedy cos I thought you saying the FTC blockchain was dead was sad.

    I have no words.
