What a brilliant statement. You will not survive either.
Slow start is a positive thing.
This is much better than the previous versions of crypto currencies where you have had “pre-mined” coins. That is on day 1 when everyone start mine:ing the developers already have 10000000 coins that they can dump on the market. With 20% dev fee the developers slowly get zCash over 4 years time and this gives them more incentive to actually work and develop the currency during this time instead of just sell it directly in the beginning and fuck off with their money. Check the the founders fee’s on the blockchain explorer. None of that money have been moved. It is all still on one and the same account. So none of the founders have touched or sold any zCash so far. Even though the price for 1 ZEC was over 3000 BTC at one point.
Just because you have no talent does not mean that other people that are bright and have worked their ass off for a year on developing a miner should not be paid for their work. They can charge whatever they want. If people want to pay they have obviously done a good job worth that amount. Should you stop being paid for serving food at Burger King? “The problem with burger king is pre-made food that you have to pay a fee for!? Why not give it away?”…
Again, a fee for their work. If you don’t like make your own miner or don’t use theirs. Use the software that some people give a away for free. Like open source. The founders actually paid for an open source contest with $30 000 in prize money to get the general public to get a better chance against larger commercial miners.
closed source miner software with dev-fees
closed source miner software with hardcoded pools
I’ve been mining for over a week with open source miners and I guess I didn’t even realize that there were closed source ones.
I’ve noticed people coming out of the woodwork to attack Zcash. I think maybe they are large holders of something else, and want to maintain their priveleged position. ZEC is like gay marriage, if you don’t like it, then shut the fuck up and don’t get one.
At first I puzzled over ‘All coins are created equal’ but have since come to take it as a reference to fungibility. All coin are created equal but, thanks to ledger analysis techniques, most crypto currencies carry the concept of ‘tainted coin’ - which has harmed fungibility.
Re: Your other belly-aching - welcome to the free market. If you’re looking for a participation award, you’re in the wrong place.
That slogan was to help sell the idea of CPU mining to sucker in the crypto community to think ZEC mining and distribution would be fair. Reminds me of the sales pitch Vitalik used with ethereum and CPU mining, he would never mentioned the prospect of GPU miners taking over, least i never heard him give his genius thoughts on that prospect. It was all super fair CPU mining ignoring the potential for botnets, GPU’s rasing the difficulty and so on …
