    This is awesome! Thanks for sharing! What stack did you use to build it?

    1. 1

      In the backend: Finagle, Scala, AWS DynamoDB, EC2, In the frontend: React, Redux + Grommet :)

    1. 1

      This is interesting! Are you the developer?

          Greta stuff, do you have a slack channel maybe we can chat about on how to maybe get involved in the development and testing. Otherwise its being done at the right time, cheers. Would like to hear from you. amonxnye@gmail.com

          1. 1

            I would also be interested in a slack channel to chat about the project :)

          1. 1

            This is awesome! Thanks for sharing it. I was actually thinking of making something like this. Very cool.

            What stack did you use to build it? Is the project open source? What else are you working on crypto related?

            Also welcome to the community :)

            1. 2

              Thanks for your warm welcome.

              The stack is Python+Django+Nodejs+geth (and other wallets).

              We don’t release it open source right now, but maybe in the future.

              For now, we focus on ICOs and can provide the whole package, from legal&compliance, marketing, technology and online wallets/exchanges.

              Other services include Blockchain as a Service and individual smart contract development.

              Would be nice to talk to you more in detail. If you want, sign up at crowdsale.express and I’ll come back to you by email (I can’t find your contact details here)… ;)

              1. 1

                That’s awesome! For ICOs do you only write the smart contracts or do you build dApps for interacting with them as well? Also do you have any links to some of the projects you have done?

            1. 1

              Do you know of an exchange where you can deposit bitcoin cash and it is actively trading yet?

              1. 2

                bittrex

                1. 1

                  Bittrex says “BCC wallet is under maintenance” when attempting to deposit.

                  1. 2

                    Oh, deposit seems to be inactive. If you’ve had Bitcoins at bittrex before the fork, then you now have BTC and BCC in your account. At least, that’s what I’ve heard from friends.

                    1. 1

                      Yeah I can see a tiny bit of BCC on Bittrex from the BTC but the majority of my BTC is on a hardware wallet so I’m looking for an exchange to send it to.

              1. 1

                I saw this! I mine ETH on a small scale (12 GPUs) but the IRC channel I hang out in has people buying hundreds if not thousands of cards. I figure you must need some sort of wholesale connection. Does anyone here have experience with this that could share?

                1. 1

                  Where do all the seized digital assets (i.e. BTC) go? Are they returned to the owners? What is the process for that? These situations are why I keep my coins on a hardware wallet that I control the private key for.

                  1. 2

                    if change.org petition will be sucessfull usa goverment will release funds to there owners –

                    1. 1

                      Ahhh okay, are you not in the USA? Did you have funds on there?

                  1. 1

                    Nice! Thanks for this :) Do you have any other good resources you recommend?

                    1. 1

                      My guess is BTC price will fall as money flows back into alts. What do you think?

                      1. 2

                        Do you use zeppelin? I just started learning it as I’m trying to learn smart contract programming in Solidity. It seems like a good resources to leverage best practices considering the need for solid security when developing smart contracts.

                        1. 2

                          I’m actually not a developer, but I am part of the Zeppelin team so great to hear you are using OpenZeppelin!

                                      That worked, thank you!

                          1. 1

                            Someone mentioned this talk on another thread yesterday. Thanks for posting it! I’m going to watch it this evening :)

                            1. 1

                              This is fascinating. I wonder when crypto based investment vehicles will be available for non institutional investors. Similar to ETFs ?

                              1. 2

                                Oh it’s existing since 2013 https://grayscale.co/bitcoin-investment-trust/ but it’s expensive

                                1. 1

                                  I didn’t realize they were involved with BTC. I knew they were involved with Eth Classic. I wonder if they are supporting Eth Classic over Eth because they are involved with BTC.

                              1. 1

                                If he already has 1B USD he can already push markets to where he wants them, plus has access to publications like Bloomberg to help manipulate price.

                                1. 2

                                  Use the whales to your advantage

                                  1. 2

                                    This is actually cheaper to do than you’d think. Can’t blame those with the resources available to do this for taking advantage of a market largely populated by idiots who can’t form their own opinions.

                                    1. 1

                                      It really is cheaper than you’d think. I sold ~ $2,000 of PivX about a week ago and immediately saw signals reported by https://cryptoping.tech/

                                      1. 2

                                        I should’ve been a bit more specific. I was referring to how inexpensive it is to purchase biased press coverage from just about any major publication, especially if you identify as a “developer”.

                                        That said, a lot of crypto-publications (think Tech Crunch, but worse) have no understanding of basic economics or what liquidity means in the sense of crypto (which are all arguably purely fungible), they’re dumb enough to actually see price shifts as “news”. It’s insane.

                                        1. 1

                                          Yeah I understand what you’re saying. Reminds me of www.coindesk.com

                                          My goal was to try and avoid those types of sources on CryptoBuzz.

                                  1. 2

                                    I think their team has a compelling case. Do they need $200m to complete their project? No, but I think this is one of the “realest” projects the space has seen in quite some time.

                                    One of the big problems with ETH is pushing new features (SNARKS, casper, etc) through prototyping to actual implementation without introducing hoards of new unforeseen bugs. When it comes to people using ETH for applications more complex or important than online gambling, being able to prove correctness is huge (the lack of formal proofs for correctness have also been a big reason why large enterprises have dismissed ETH, it was also a huge point of disagreement in early EEA meetings). Tezos gets solves this by generalizing protocols and breaking them into their perspective applications, tying everything together with Ocaml, a provably correct functional language.

                                    Their white-paper, originally written in 2014, was definitely ahead of it’s time. The paper highlighted a number of governance and scaling issues that have only been fully realized within the last few months.

                                    Olaf Carlson-Wee spoke very highly of them in a podcast with YC on July 19th, seems like he was one of the first to invest heavily in their concept and support their vision.

                                    1. 1

                                      I didn’t realize they were leveraging Ocaml for that purpose. That’s fascinating.

                                      That’s a great point re: moving features from prototype to release without the introduction of unforeseen bugs and race conditions. Are there any other projects in this space tackling that issue?

                                      1. 2

                                        During preliminary meetings for the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance there was talk of establishing working groups to adapt certain opcodes in provable correct languages.

                                        1. 1

                                          Interesting! Yeah I’m a developer just starting to get into crypto / blockchain development. So a lot of the tech is very new for me.

                                      1. 1

                                        Do you think the volatility of BTC’s price will affect people’s willingness to use it as a currency? If both consumers and merchants aren’t confident if the value will increase or decrease day to day wouldn’t that be apprehensive to use it?

                                        1. 6

                                          This is awesome news for the Litecoin project. Hopefully this means we see lightning sooner rather than later.

                                          1. 5

                                            How will this affect the price of LTC?

                                            1. 2

                                              I could see the price of Litecoin pushing $100 by the end of the year.

                                              1. 1

                                                Last 72 hours have been bullish as hell…. LTC TO THE MOON

                                                    found the BTC maximalist

                                                    1. 1

                                                      The other cryptos are fine but there’s one obvious giant

                                                      1. 1

                                                        Flappening imminent.

                                                2. 1

                                                  This is probably tied to the price of Bitcoin and what happens Aug 1st with a possible hard fork.
