DRK - Darkcoin Discussion


#1

Read some interesting news about darkcoin enabling instant confirmations via the nodes today, never managed to re-find the original article I read, but dug this one out for reference:

What are peoples thoughts? Personally I like their take on privacy rights and while I can see the appeal to criminals (both street level, corporate and government) I can imagine this sort of thing being very popular. I’ve kept an eye on Dark from a distance for a long while now and this is the first time I’ve read a good news update on them for a while. Also wondering if this was the reason behind the recent pump.


#2

Interesting it may be involving sapience?


#3

I got a few DRK, I like the coin and it has been good to me trading wise. Value has nicely increased too.


#4

I was looking at the possibility of running a darkcoin node but given the price of gathering the coins to create one just near enough doubled recently I’m not too sure.

I can;t see the price continuing to climb but I can imagine, given my luck, that the value would crash as soon as I’ve brought all those coins.


#5

How many coins does it take to get the node up?


#6

1000, unless they’ve changed anything. Can’t remember what fee structure they settled on either, at one point it was supposed to be a cut of the block reward for mining plus the fees, then it was something else, as far as I can remember reading now it’s just the fees in a block that go to the node owners now :slight_smile:

So… Since today, Darkcoin is known as Dash - Digital Cash. Interesting. Far less dark;)
It explains the bump in price from last week…


#8

Interesting, I missed that. Ty!


#9

let see if mainstream can relate


#10

Price still seems to be doing well, so at least the market can relate.

What would be a possible downside of this name change? I quite like it, really… Except maybe this: dash

And similarly, what’s the story behind the name Blackcoin? Also very ‘cheerful’ and dark.

EDIT: actually, I can see how having ‘-’ as a currency symbol could be confusing.


#11

Price is still alright https://www.coingecko.com/en/price_charts/darkcoin/btc althought trending down since rebranding to Dash

Blackcoin wanted to do a rebrand in China, not sure if it went happen


#12

Down? I’d say up, really: name change was announced more than a week ago.
In fact, the chart is quite impressive: https://www.coingecko.com/en/price_charts/darkcoin/btc/max_days
Hope it’s not a pump that’s going to be followed by a huge dump… Though letting some air out could be healthy… Easy does it…

Mainstream is overrated. The mainstream doesn’t even understand BTC yet let alone an altcoin. DRK/DASH has it’s own niche market which is great.

Really? I hope not. That’s the thing. the coin name needs to be considered before you ever launch your coin. Obviously Darkcoin and Blackcoin have a certain touch to their name.
