Official FTC Newsletter 36

    actually i didn’t say much about doing anything about neoscrypt, i merely asked two question on comments said in the official FTC newsletter (ie on topic).

    "so apart from almost completely killing any market for ftc how is Neoscrypt better?

    now why the disconnection from litecoin and the switch to deriving the wallet from btc?"

    The question ‘is Neoscrypt better’ is not the right one.

    I my opinion all algorithm have advantages and disadvantages and we had reasons to change FTC’s algorithm to Neoscrypt.

    I think I explained these reasons to you here

    To answer your second question, the direct connection to Bitcoin wallets and disconnect from the Litecoin development is mainly to increase the speed of developement, and bug fixing as we know can apply patches made to the Bitcoin wallets and daemon by pulling directly from the bitcoin master, while before the way was:

    • Bitcoin created a patch or new feature
    • Litecoin adapted and applied the fix or feature
    • Feathercoin adapted and applied the Litecoin fix/feature

    This took time and complicated the developemend and testing process, so with a wallet and daemon directly derivered from Bitcon we are in a much better position.

    You can see, that this decision was purely driven by technical thoughts and not by any politics or likes/dislikes toward Litecoin.

    @Wellenreiter To be more political correct I would say absolute majority of FTC team hate LTC to death because it is complete clone shitcoin. I know at least 20 coins that deserve bigger marketcap than Litecoin and will eventually reach it.


  • Moderators

    I don’t hate Litecoin. I follow their developments with interest and their users and developers have contributed to a number of bugs and issues back to Bitcoin.
    Whilst I agree on the reasons to go more upstream, it is still worth noting where Litecoin handles those differently.


  • Moderators

    @mirrax I see this totally different.

    Feathercoin has it’s roots in Litecoin and Peter had reasons to use Litecoin as the basis and roots for Feathercoin.

    The step to move directly to Bitcoin as upstream source for code was a logical step to keep our development smooth and going.

    That’s all, nothing more and nothing less.

    @Wellenreiter I am very sad from what I see, as hate and trolling towards Litecoin was the very essence on which FTC was build.

    Well, did LTC show much love to FTC in those early days? Quite the opposite actually.

    honestly i think thats a very bad attitude (and counterproductive) for any of the ftc team to have. the current litecoin team certainly has no hate towards feathercoin.

    tbh agree or not with me, and its nothing to do with starting a fight here, todate i cetainly believe litecoin (while not perfect) is the best cryptocurrency to date, and if you followed it its far from simply a bitcoin clone.

    i certainly feel feathercoin can be right up there as a major crypto (tis why I am here).

    however if we are truly honest early in its history it had alot more going for it then it does now, this now shows on many levels (adoption, market price, how many people currently even notice it, feathercoin community participation), its why i see clearly for success it must return to its roots.

    that certainly doesn’t mean necessarily algo roots.

    I have to agree with this. While I dont know what the best direction to take is, its pretty obvious that things were better for FTC in the past than now. I started following Litecoin because it had improved on a few things I didnt like about Bitcoin. I then started following Feathercoin because it did the same for Litecoin plus the community was active and creative. I honestly think FTC can be a big player in crypto

    Reading your responses I have to say:
    We need to hate LTC more. Each of us. There is nothing wrong at trolling that coin.
    If there is one coin to be ridiculed to death than it is litecoin!

    MORE HATE!



  • think theres some jelly here (and a few alt communities) over how successful litecoin is.
    instead of the hate and the trolling why not learn from its success?
