@afridylan sure will love to be added in developer group and learn from the community.
I have high hopes from Quarkchain because of his Founder (Qi Zhou), he has great experience in building high performance systems for Google and Facebook. So, yeah fingers crossed.
Invite sent, welcome to the group
If you are, there is a group here of other developers you can join. I'd be happy to invite you.
I use a Nano Ledger S. The only issue I have with it is that it doesn't support all coins, so for ones that aren't supported, I have to store in a different way. I would not store anything in the cloud (your friend learned this the hard way unfortunately).
I also use a nano s - I rate it an 8/10.
Sending tokens is rather scary since you don't really know the destination address or the number of tokens being sent. It just shows the ERC20 contract address and "data present".
Always check the URL before you login to an exchange and if something seems to good to be true, it probably is.
If you use a password manager you won't have this issue, plus you'd have the upside of having a much stronger password so in the event of a db breach the probability of your password being cracked is much lower.
Hey @jerryred069. Welcome to the forum; congrats on your first post.
I've moved your topic into the correct section.
I recently stumbled upon the 0xbitcoin project.
0xBitcoin is bitcoin built into an ethereum smart contract. It has all of bitcoin's properties, plus a few extras:
- It's a minable token with a finite supply, just like bitcoin
- It works well with decentralized exchanges (i.e. it's an ERC20 with some extra functions)
- It'll work with any wallet that supports ERC20s
- It has the stability and benefits that ethereum provides (higher tps, sharding, plasma, etc)
- Anyone can mine it by submitting your proof of work to the smart contract
- It's not subject to miner abuse because miners have no vote in how the software operates due to ethereum's immutability property
Given this - is there an incentive to use bitcoin? I think the only advantage is has going for it is that it's the first to market and the most widely known. Other than that, it seems to me that the benefits of a minable token far outweigh the functionality that bitcoin can provide.
What are your thoughts on the matter?
