If so, why does the page point the litecoin.org for blockchain download? Miners are for BTC, may be LTC. I’m not aware about open-source miners especially for Windows? Especially download Zcash client from … litecoin.org
e-mail and password gathering? The email address to sign up doesn’t even require verification. There are better ways to gather emails and passwords than posting in a niche forum promoting a pool for an altcoin. @feeleep / coinmine.pl has rep in crypto
It seems that You have no experience in it. During registration process You should enter, exactly e-mail address, nick, password, wallet address. Taking into account technical level of people at this forum you can 80% confident that they use the same credentials on other forums or even e-mails. So, this the simple way to gather simply credential which you can use with slight modifications to get access to current of even future accounts. If this person want to run a pool and never compiled or generated wallet address by himself, how will he will going to do that. Simply re-transmitting hashing power to another pool (what seems another scammy option). At least he is very bad prepared for both legit and scam activity.
Your concerns are valid, however, you are coming across as fear mongering and counterproductive. Here ITT we have somebody contributing to the Zcash community, and you are calling it a “scam” with no basis.
I don’t know what part of thin air you’re pulling this metric from. Of course any third party tool is going to require a password, it’s redundant and patronizing to remind me people to use a unique password - especially on a public forum which is revolving around the idea of creating a more private cryptocurrency.
It’s worthless testnet coins for god’s sake. Save your accusations until this coin is actually worth something. Then you better know what your talking about before labeling. Otherwise you are the boy who cries wolf.
