It's Time to Let Everyone in on Litecoin's Biggest Secret

Fellow Consumers,
It's possible that you might be getting a little upset at the current BTC fees. Please assist me in sending, or editing as you see fit, this drafted outline and email to whichever business you feel would benefit from using Litecoin instead. Or you can make a video, or tweet the link, or 100 other things. Just help in bringing attention to Litecoin in BTC's mempool time of need. It's time they learned Litecoin's biggest secret .... It’s THE BEST payment method out there. Also, please support businesses that currently accept Litecoin. I've put together a list below the draft.
........................................................................................................................................
BEGIN EMAIL DRAFT
To whom it may concern,
Has your company ever considered receiving the alternative payment currency Litecoin?
To begin, you may already be accepting bitcoin and Litecoin is very similar to bitcoin. If you're unfamiliar with bitcoin as a currency then Litecoin is a great place to start. They are even built from the same Core coding. A benefit to Litecoin is that it has a 2.5 minute block time instead of bitcoin's 10 minutes. This makes Litecoin's transaction speed four times faster and much less expensive than bitcoin. In layman's terms, this just means payment is confirmed faster and less expensively with Litecoin.
For reference - you can see the average fee of both bitcoin and Litecoin in US Dollars compared here: https://bitinfocharts.com/comparison/transactionfees-btc-ltc.html#1y
This chart shows the average fee for Litecoin is staying around 10 to 20 cents, and bitcoin bouncing between a low of $1.50 and $8.00 recently. This means you would pay less in fees to convert the same total value into fiat or USD in this case.
If you were to compare this to the average credit card transaction fees, of say 2.5%, any transaction over $5.00 would be more profitable through Litecoin.
Reference of fees found here: https://www.cardfellow.com/average-fees-for-credit-card-processing/#Typical
If you've heard of Litecoin, I'm sure you have heard the saying "Litecoin is the silver to bitcoin's gold." But really, Litecoin should really be considered Platinum instead of silver. Platinum is stronger, more durable, and much more ductile. Over 20% of all consumer goods either contain platinum or are produced using platinum. Platinum is truly an enduring metal just as Litecoin is truly an enduring cryptocurrency. It will be 6 years old this October, bitcoin is 8 years old.
A few facts that demonstrate Litecoin's strength, durability, and ductility are listed below:
  1. Litecoin has a large economy and your current bitcoin technology should work on Litecoin with very little changes. If you don't use bitcoin, it is still easy to implement.
  2. Litecoin has the best combination of economic size and technical similarity to bitcoin than any other cryptocurrencies.
  3. Litecoin is capable of eight times as many transactions as bitcoin in a ten minute period.
  4. Litecoin has much faster confirmation times with blocks that are not full.
  5. Litecoin has proven its longevity compared to many other cryptocurrencies that have come and gone.
  6. Also, if changes ever need to be made to Litecoin, it doesn't take years to implement them. Litecoin implemented Segregated Witness before bitcoin, and will most likely run on the lightning network before bitcoin as well. If you don't deal with bitcoin, this all just means Litecoin is a front runner in implementing new technology and features.
  7. Litecoin is a limited supply coin, launched fairly, with no coins premined (no developer is hiding a majority somewhere), nor has it ever hard forked for any special interest groups. It is decentralized and no one person or group controls what happens to it and no one person or group can manipulate the market.
  8. Whole Litecoins are much more affordable than whole bitcoins. This helps eliminate some psychological barriers to entering the market.
In conclusion:
If your company was to accept Litecoin, I would be happy to start conducting my business with you.
If your company accepts bitcoin payments but not Litecoin, I hope I have helped shed some light on the benefits Litecoin could bring to your business.
If your business does not accept bitcoin payments, I hope I have introduced you to an alternative payment option that a large number of people transact with everyday who would love to add you to their list of merchants accepting Litecoin. It really is the currency of the future.
If you have any questions about Litecoin or need help in possibly implementing Litecoin into your business, please let us know. There are many of us here excited to help you transition into accepting Litecoin or to help you further and answer any questions you may have.

[H] Halycon 6, Mini Metro, Subterrain, Dead Rising 4, Kerbal Space & Giveaways [W] Crypto, PayPal, Games & Nothing

I HAVE:
BONUS: Giveaways
I WANT:
The offers should be generally based on the prices on the grey markets, on the full prices & all time-low prices on legit digital gaming platforms like Steam, as well as Humble Bundle, Fanatical, WinGameStore and so on.
Before making an offer, please check the prices mentioned above and don’t attempt to lowball. When I make an offer, I always check those prices and act accordingly. I’m not trying to make one-sided deals here; all I’m trying to do is reach an agreement that is profitable and fair for both sides. That is why I almost always set the $ price for my games under what you see on the grey markets or the all-time-lows on the legit platforms (whichever is lower). This way I hope to discourage purchasing games on those grey markets – the ‘businesses’ that run there are more often than not questionable in terms of how they acquired the game keys.
On the other hand, I can’t set the bar too low and undersell my games as resellers would take fully advantage of that and make a hefty profit on those grey markets. From my perspective, this isn’t a win-win situation, it’s a typical case of one-sided deal. And yes, LOWBALLING IS CONDEMNABLE IMHO.
For those who think your games are much more valuable than what you see on the grey markets and, at the same time, you consider your potential trading partner’s games being worth a lot less: I’m OK with that – it is what it is – but please do NOT bother commenting on this topic and adding me to your Steam friend list. You will be ignored in either case!
Not necessarily JUST Bitcoin although I would try to avoid BTC in some cases as the fees can fluctuate immensely and spike when the network is congested. There are other better options for micro-transactions like Ethereum (although Ethereum can suffer the same fate as BTC at times due to congestion), Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, Monero & even much less valuable cryptos like Doge. I’m open to pretty much any crypto offers.
Please note that I will stop accepting PayPal as a payment method starting from April 19, 2018. The reason is clearly stated here. Till then though, please make sure to send me the payment as Family & Friends (aka Make a Payment in A Few Seconds). And also the fees if any are on you (You have to insert the sum we agreed to in the ‘RECEIVES’ box). Do NOT attempt to use the Pay For Goods and Services option!!! By choosing Pay For Goods and Services you will lose money and cancel our agreement.
Just promise me to redeem the games for yourself or your friends and actually play them NOT use them in other trading topics. There aren't worth much anyways so please, have some common sense. Also only one game per account.
To redeem the giveaways & coupons just comment bellow. First come, first served.

Inside Monero’s ‘Last Ditch Effort’ to Block Crypto Mining ASICs

Developers behind the cryptocurrency monero are ramping up efforts to keep specialized mining hardware from dominating its race for rewards.
Of the coins that have a strong privacy focus, monero – launched in 2014 – possesses the largest market capitalization by far with an estimated $1.5 billion valuation. The annual mining rewards generated by the now 5-year-old blockchain total roughly $62 million, according to data site Messari.
But such rewards appear to be increasingly falling into the hands of ASIC operators, nudging out smaller, independent or hobbyist participants. To keep an even playing field, monero developers have conducted regular hard forks to stave off ASICs – but analysis suggests that this approach has proven ineffective as of late and that ASICs are keeping ahead of such efforts.
“ASIC manufacturers can make equipment far faster than we expected,” said monero contributor Justin Ehrenhofer. “It takes maybe a month for them to have chips designed and in production so they generally can still make a return on investment even within a six month period.”
Diego Salazar, another monero contributor, told CoinDesk:
“We [also] saw that this was very unsustainable. … It takes a lot to keep [hard forking] again and again for one. For two, it may decentralize mining but it centralizes in another area. It centralizes on the developers because now there’s a lot of trust in developers to keep hard forking.”
As such, monero developers are moving forward with activation of a new mining algorithm known as RandomX, designed to render ASICs non-competitive.
The new code is based off the work of Howard Chu – CTO and founder of computer software firm Symas Corporation – who also developed the database type the monero blockchain presently runs on. Four different audits of the RandomX code are now being completed for an expected code freeze date by July.
As it stands, the algorithm could go live in October.
“We’ve ultimately come to consensus in general that RandomX is what will be implemented. It’s our best shot to preserve monero as it was founded,” said Ehrenhofer. “If this fails then monero will probably move to an ASIC-friendly algorithm.”
According to Salazar, RandomX is monero’s “last ditch effort to keep ASIC’s out.”

Putting CPUs at the fore

RandomX according to Chu is designed to be “CPU-centric.”
As opposed to application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), central processing units (CPUs) are a type of computer hardware designed for multi-purpose use.
Calling it a “spectrum of computing power,” Salazar explained:
“On one end, where computers are a jack of all trades are the CPUs… On the other end, computers which does only one thing but extremely well are ASICs.”
CPU’s are the most widely distributed computing resource in the world, according to Chu.
“Practically everyone in the world now has a smart phone in their pocket with a CPU and memory that’s capable of mining RandomX,” highlighted Chu.
With maximum miner decentralization as the goal, Chu predicts that RandomX will preserve an advantageous lead favoring CPU miners over ASICs for at least the next three to five years.

Leaving GPUs behind

At the same time, estimates suggest the RandomX algorithm favors CPU miners over not only ASIC miners but GPU miners as well.
Graphics processing units (GPUs) are optimized for what Chu calls a “graphics workload which tends to be very sequential.”
“Data goes in at the head of the pipeline and you do some munching on it and it all spits out at the end of the pipeline,” Chu said. “The main emphasis there is fast transfers of data from the input to the output, pretty much in a straight line.”
For monero’s current mining algorithm, called CryptoNight, GPU miners take the lead over CPUs in terms of computation and energy efficiency. Originally, however, even CryptoNight was intended to boost CPU performance over other types of hardware.
“It’s really again kind of an accident of fate that [CryptoNight] turned out to work fairly well on GPUs. Nobody expected CryptoNight to be good on GPUs and it was anyways,” explained Chu. “The fact is today GPUs have so much memory and so much massive memory bandwidth that it’s not very much of an obstacle when it comes to CryptoNight, which was designed back in 2013 or so.”
Soon, with the activation of RandomX, Chu predicts CPUs to be “at least three times better than GPUs” at mining on the monero blockchain.
And while this has disgruntled “a very vocal but extremely small minority” of GPU miners, Ehrenhofer maintains that “people with GPUs can always either resell or repurpose their hardware.”
“If I have a monero ASIC, I don’t have that same economic option available,” said Ehrenhofer.
As such, despite the impact RandomX will have on not only ASIC miners but also GPU miners on the monero network, Ehrenhofer maintains:
“I’m not concerned about a community split here because RandomX is the closest algorithm that we can pick that retains a vast majority of monero’s ideals.”

Lingering concerns

Perhaps a more realistic concern in the mind of Ehrenhofer and others is the proliferation of botnets on the monero network as a result of a CPU-friendly mining algorithm like RandomX.
“The basic concern is there’s millions or hundreds of millions of computers that are out there that are poorly secured,” explained Chu. “It’s very easy for malware to invade these computers and take them over to do whatever a particular network operator wants to do.”
Such botnets, infected by malware, have always been somewhat of an issue on monero, according to Ehrenhofer.
“Monero is by far the most illicitly mined cryptocurrency at the moment and it has been for several years,” Ehrenhofer said. “RandomX does not prevent people from crypto-jacking and other nefarious versions of malware.”
Indeed, given that monero’s present mining algorithm – CryptoNight – has always favored CPU and GPU mining, Ehrenhofer notes that there are resources in place on the monero website and other related forums to help users who’s devices are impacted.

New partnerships

Even still, efforts to bootstrap RandomX have seen support from those outside of the community, particularly by other crypto projects that might make use of CPU-friendly mining algorithm.
Arweave, which raised a reported $8.7 million in an initial coin offering (ICO), is teseting RandomX.
“An ASIC-resistant proof-of-work algorithm like RandomX will further enhance our permanent, low-cost, tamper-resistant storage network,” said Sam Williams, founder and CEO at Arweave, in a press releasefrom earlier this month. “RandomX helps us ensure that power over the decentralized content policies in the Arweave network remains well distributed across many globally distributed parties.”
To this, Arweave has funded one of the four audits over the RandomX code.
Completed officially on Friday, the audit cost a reported $80,000 and was conducted by security firm Trail of Bits. Speaking to CoinDesk in an interview, Williams explained:
“It was one of our hopes going into the audit process that by helping to fund it we could do a small public service by making sure other [crypto] projects can see there is a programmatic proof-of-work algorithm that is likely ASIC-resistant in practice without fear of security.”
The other three audits totaling $130,000 that are still to be finalized by security firms Kudelski Security, X41 D-Sec, and QuarksLab were funded through crowd-sourced donations from the monero community. They are expected to wrap up by July, according to Chu.
The next step after that is an eventual launch of the algorithm on a public monero test network before a tentatively scheduled mainnet activation this October.

Risky business

For all the discussion that has gone into preparing RandomX for a mainnet implementation, Ehrenhofer maintains that the true benefits of RandomX won’t be certain until it’s live on the network.
“We don’t know if RandomX will work yet even if all the audits come back and they say your cryptography is pretty good. We don’t know in practice how things will actually turnout,” warned Ehrenhofer.
But the worst-case scenario in Ehrenhofer’s mind if the algorithm proves to be unsuccessful is a switch to an ASIC-friendly mining algorithm similar to the one currently utilized by bitcoin.
“I think if RandomX does fail and monero switches to something more ASIC-friendly, many in the bitcoin community will tell us, ‘I told you so.'” Ehrenhofer joked.
Even so, Salazar maintains that monero should have the runway to try new things and fail at them.
“Isn’t the idea to see what’s going to work best so that one day we can have a good digital, private, fungible cryptocurrency?” Salazar asked. “If monero is not but a stepping stone to get to that good currency then by all means let monero be the lost leader.”
Salazar concluded:
“The monero people are nothing if not resilient nerds that decide to take on the man. So we said, ‘You know what? Let’s give this a go, one last ditch effort.'”

“It was one of our hopes going into the audit process that by helping to fund it we could do a small public service by making sure other [crypto] projects can see there is a programmatic proof-of-work algorithm that is likely ASIC-resistant in practice without fear of security.”
The other three audits totaling $130,000 that are still to be finalized by security firms Kudelski Security, X41 D-Sec, and QuarksLab were funded through crowd-sourced donations from the monero community. They are expected to wrap up by July, according to Chu.
The next step after that is an eventual launch of the algorithm on a public monero test network before a tentatively scheduled mainnet activation this October.
Risky business For all the discussion that has gone into preparing RandomX for a mainnet implementation, Ehrenhofer maintains that the true benefits of RandomX won’t be certain until it’s live on the network.
“We don’t know if RandomX will work yet even if all the audits come back and they say your cryptography is pretty good. We don’t know in practice how things will actually turnout,” warned Ehrenhofer.
But the worst-case scenario in Ehrenhofer’s mind if the algorithm proves to be unsuccessful is a switch to an ASIC-friendly mining algorithm similar to the one currently utilized by bitcoin.
“I think if RandomX does fail and monero switches to something more ASIC-friendly, many in the bitcoin community will tell us, ‘I told you so.'” Ehrenhofer joked.
Even so, Salazar maintains that monero should have the runway to try new things and fail at them.
“Isn’t the idea to see what’s going to work best so that one day we can have a good digital, private, fungible cryptocurrency?” Salazar asked. “If monero is not but a stepping stone to get to that good currency then by all means let monero be the lost leader.”
Salazar concluded:
“The monero people are nothing if not resilient nerds that decide to take on the man. So we said, ‘You know what? Let’s give this a go, one last ditch effort.'”

Inside Monero’s ‘Last Ditch Effort’ to Block Crypto Mining ASICs

Developers behind the cryptocurrency monero are ramping up efforts to keep specialized mining hardware from dominating its race for rewards.
Of the coins that have a strong privacy focus, monero – launched in 2014 – possesses the largest market capitalization by far with an estimated $1.5 billion valuation. The annual mining rewards generated by the now 5-year-old blockchain total roughly $62 million, according to data site Messari.
But such rewards appear to be increasingly falling into the hands of ASIC operators, nudging out smaller, independent or hobbyist participants. To keep an even playing field, monero developers have conducted regular hard forks to stave off ASICs – but analysis suggests that this approach has proven ineffective as of late and that ASICs are keeping ahead of such efforts.
“ASIC manufacturers can make equipment far faster than we expected,” said monero contributor Justin Ehrenhofer. “It takes maybe a month for them to have chips designed and in production so they generally can still make a return on investment even within a six month period.”
Diego Salazar, another monero contributor, told CoinDesk:
“We [also] saw that this was very unsustainable. … It takes a lot to keep [hard forking] again and again for one. For two, it may decentralize mining but it centralizes in another area. It centralizes on the developers because now there’s a lot of trust in developers to keep hard forking.”
As such, monero developers are moving forward with activation of a new mining algorithm known as RandomX, designed to render ASICs non-competitive.
The new code is based off the work of Howard Chu – CTO and founder of computer software firm Symas Corporation – who also developed the database type the monero blockchain presently runs on. Four different audits of the RandomX code are now being completed for an expected code freeze date by July.
As it stands, the algorithm could go live in October.
“We’ve ultimately come to consensus in general that RandomX is what will be implemented. It’s our best shot to preserve monero as it was founded,” said Ehrenhofer. “If this fails then monero will probably move to an ASIC-friendly algorithm.”
According to Salazar, RandomX is monero’s “last ditch effort to keep ASIC’s out.”

Putting CPUs at the fore

RandomX according to Chu is designed to be “CPU-centric.”
As opposed to application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), central processing units (CPUs) are a type of computer hardware designed for multi-purpose use.
Calling it a “spectrum of computing power,” Salazar explained:
“On one end, where computers are a jack of all trades are the CPUs… On the other end, computers which does only one thing but extremely well are ASICs.”
CPU’s are the most widely distributed computing resource in the world, according to Chu.
“Practically everyone in the world now has a smart phone in their pocket with a CPU and memory that’s capable of mining RandomX,” highlighted Chu.
With maximum miner decentralization as the goal, Chu predicts that RandomX will preserve an advantageous lead favoring CPU miners over ASICs for at least the next three to five years.

Leaving GPUs behind

At the same time, estimates suggest the RandomX algorithm favors CPU miners over not only ASIC miners but GPU miners as well.
Graphics processing units (GPUs) are optimized for what Chu calls a “graphics workload which tends to be very sequential.”
“Data goes in at the head of the pipeline and you do some munching on it and it all spits out at the end of the pipeline,” Chu said. “The main emphasis there is fast transfers of data from the input to the output, pretty much in a straight line.”
For monero’s current mining algorithm, called CryptoNight, GPU miners take the lead over CPUs in terms of computation and energy efficiency. Originally, however, even CryptoNight was intended to boost CPU performance over other types of hardware.
“It’s really again kind of an accident of fate that [CryptoNight] turned out to work fairly well on GPUs. Nobody expected CryptoNight to be good on GPUs and it was anyways,” explained Chu. “The fact is today GPUs have so much memory and so much massive memory bandwidth that it’s not very much of an obstacle when it comes to CryptoNight, which was designed back in 2013 or so.”
Soon, with the activation of RandomX, Chu predicts CPUs to be “at least three times better than GPUs” at mining on the monero blockchain.
And while this has disgruntled “a very vocal but extremely small minority” of GPU miners, Ehrenhofer maintains that “people with GPUs can always either resell or repurpose their hardware.”
“If I have a monero ASIC, I don’t have that same economic option available,” said Ehrenhofer.
As such, despite the impact RandomX will have on not only ASIC miners but also GPU miners on the monero network, Ehrenhofer maintains:
“I’m not concerned about a community split here because RandomX is the closest algorithm that we can pick that retains a vast majority of monero’s ideals.”

Lingering concerns

Perhaps a more realistic concern in the mind of Ehrenhofer and others is the proliferation of botnets on the monero network as a result of a CPU-friendly mining algorithm like RandomX.
“The basic concern is there’s millions or hundreds of millions of computers that are out there that are poorly secured,” explained Chu. “It’s very easy for malware to invade these computers and take them over to do whatever a particular network operator wants to do.”
Such botnets, infected by malware, have always been somewhat of an issue on monero, according to Ehrenhofer.
“Monero is by far the most illicitly mined cryptocurrency at the moment and it has been for several years,” Ehrenhofer said. “RandomX does not prevent people from crypto-jacking and other nefarious versions of malware.”
Indeed, given that monero’s present mining algorithm – CryptoNight – has always favored CPU and GPU mining, Ehrenhofer notes that there are resources in place on the monero website and other related forums to help users who’s devices are impacted.

New partnerships

Even still, efforts to bootstrap RandomX have seen support from those outside of the community, particularly by other crypto projects that might make use of CPU-friendly mining algorithm.
Arweave, which raised a reported $8.7 million in an initial coin offering (ICO), is teseting RandomX.
“An ASIC-resistant proof-of-work algorithm like RandomX will further enhance our permanent, low-cost, tamper-resistant storage network,” said Sam Williams, founder and CEO at Arweave, in a press releasefrom earlier this month. “RandomX helps us ensure that power over the decentralized content policies in the Arweave network remains well distributed across many globally distributed parties.”
To this, Arweave has funded one of the four audits over the RandomX code.
Completed officially on Friday, the audit cost a reported $80,000 and was conducted by security firm Trail of Bits. Speaking to CoinDesk in an interview, Williams explained:
“It was one of our hopes going into the audit process that by helping to fund it we could do a small public service by making sure other [crypto] projects can see there is a programmatic proof-of-work algorithm that is likely ASIC-resistant in practice without fear of security.”

I WANT:
The offers should be generally based on the prices on the grey markets, on the full prices & all time-low prices on legit digital gaming platforms like Steam, as well as Humble Bundle, Fanatical, WinGameStore and so on.
Before making an offer, please check the prices mentioned above and don’t attempt to lowball. When I make an offer, I always check those prices and act accordingly. I’m not trying to make one-sided deals here; all I’m trying to do is reach an agreement that is profitable and fair for both sides. That is why I almost always set the $ price for my games under what you see on the grey markets or the all-time-lows on the legit platforms (whichever is lower). This way I hope to discourage purchasing games on those grey markets – the ‘businesses’ that run there are more often than not questionable in terms of how they acquired the game keys.
On the other hand, I can’t set the bar too low and undersell my games as resellers would take fully advantage of that and make a hefty profit on those grey markets. From my perspective, this isn’t a win-win situation, it’s a typical case of one-sided deal. And yes, LOWBALLING IS CONDEMNABLE IMHO.
For those who think your games are much more valuable than what you see on the grey markets and, at the same time, you consider your potential trading partner’s games being worth a lot less: I’m OK with that – it is what it is – but please do NOT bother commenting on this topic and adding me to your Steam friend list. You will be ignored in either case!
Not necessarily JUST Bitcoin although I would try to avoid BTC in some cases as the fees can fluctuate immensely and spike when the network is congested. There are other better options for micro-transactions like Ethereum (although Ethereum can suffer the same fate as BTC at times due to congestion), Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, Monero & even much less valuable cryptos like Doge. I’m open to pretty much any crypto offers.
Please note that I will stop accepting PayPal as a payment method starting from April 19, 2018. The reason is clearly stated here. Till then though, please make sure to send me the payment as Family & Friends (aka Make a Payment in A Few Seconds). And also the fees if any are on you (You have to insert the sum we agreed to in the ‘RECEIVES’ box). Do NOT attempt to use the Pay For Goods and Services option!!! By choosing Pay For Goods and Services you will lose money and cancel our agreement.
