Someone want to explain the winner names telling me to ditch burstcoin then a few mins later, the exact opposite?


#1

Someone want to explain to me why on blago the name of one winner comes up telling us to ditch our burstcoins because BTCHD are going to 51% it?

Then a few blocks later this sort of thing comes up as the winner:

07:09:24 Winner: 255s by HCWM-AUMD-L5PF-8DYBF (KEEP YOUR BURST - They have nothing to offer but threats - I AM WAITING FOR YOU!)


#2

Here’s the other one: 07:18:20 Winner: 549s by PVKK-NC68-R885-3Y9ME (Sell your BURST immediately,B
HD Team will 51% attack Burst in next month)


#3

It’s nothing. These are just what people named their miners.


#4

Yeah I know that but it seems strange to me that you go around naming your miner something like that if there isn’t something going on in the background.


#5

You do know that the PoCC left Burst yes?

#6

I heard about that yeah - something to do with dual mining without consent?


#7

By the way, what’s that going to mean for Qbundle, is that not made by POCC?


#8

Qbundle is maintained by Heos who isn’t in the PoCC. He is also working on a successor to Qbundle called Easy2Burst.


#9

Oh awesome. I don’t suppose you know where the development thread is per chance? I have a few daft little ideas I tried to float for qbundle a while back which would be awesome to put to Heos if he is developing it anyway.

Here is his github. https://github.com/HeosSacer

Here is the new apps team github too. https://github.com/burst-apps-team/

Awesome, Thanks Ryan.

When it comes to Burst I am a complete noob, however I have been pottering around for months just feeling my way around and learning. I am looking to get much more heavily involved though and hopefully the guys on the forum can educate me a fair bit. I’m doing this for learning, not so much for money if that makes sense. Simply because I am interested in it all.

What I will say though is that as a noob, I am hoping to document my experiences as I go and then feed that back to guys like Heos, the hope being that I can help to maybe give some constructive criticism to the experts on how to make things easier for noobs and experts alike to adopt and interact with burst. Which I think, having read a lot about Satoshi Nakamoto is something he would approve of, I mean ultimately blockchain is supposed to liberate the people and ease of understanding, I think is a big part of it.

I missed the whole BTC etc but I think there is massive potential in burst to become the leader and if I can contribute to that I am all for it and I would hope the burst community would be cool with that too. Lifes for learning as they say.

Welcome to Burst then @spontaneocus !

Things are quite slower in crypto land these days, so I’ll give you some links to look around Burst sites.

First, join the Discord https://discord.gg/42NsFEh Development team is there, you can help with the testnet, etc.

Burst Wiki has a lot of information https://burstwiki.org

And lastly, reddit is a good place as well. https://www.reddit.com/r/burstcoin
