The whole kidnapping thing is super weird. I guess it could be legit. I just don't see why Synth would theoretically pull of a scam. There were thousands of scam coins last bull run, which delievered nothing and made many anaymous devs very rich. Skycoin is a pretty old project, Synth's real identity is pretty easy to find online, and the project actually sounds really cool and has at least a preliminary, functioning project. I just don't see how this could be a scam, there are so many easier and safer ways to pull off a scam than to do what Synth and his team are doing.

It doesn't need to be decentralized, I agree.

However, take a look at pic related. The problem they're facing right now is alleviated by using a decentralized oracle, or one created internally (which would require a stupid amount of... synergy...to accomplish).

Why NOT use ye 'glorified web scraper' in this instance?

Hire two different companies to scrape the same data and cross reference the results. Done. Hire a third if needed. All cheaper and faster than farming it out to the third world on eth's blockchain.

Just like Juicero was ridiculously overengineered and completely pointless, costing close to $1000 per unit and requiring a minimum juice subscription compared to what an already existing $100 juicers could do with ease.

Even if Chainlink's model was commercially viable, it'd be better run on Skycoin's Fiber as its own blockchain. It could also utilize the full programming language of CX and the computational and data resources of Skywire to better pull data rather than the limited scope of smart contracts.

The scam is they’re selling you ‘hardware’ at an absurd mark up that they’ve convinced you will be useful on the future. You bought the miner, you’ll buy the satellite, the hardware wallet etc. They’ll keep pumping this shit out until people stop buying it. None of it is connected to the currency Skycoin because it isn’t a crypto. There’s no consensus. It’s all centralised.

To ease you in they told you that you can build your own miner. Fine. Try building your own satellite or hardware wallet. Even if you can build your own there are plenty of gullible idiots who will buy the real thing.

>> No.11552896

Also it’s not an old project at all. Check the git hub. The first commit may have been a long time ago but basically nothing happened for years and it’s only recently started coming to life. And even then most of the commits are bullshit. There’s no consensus and there never will be. They’re just going to keep selling their ‘hardware’ to idiots.

>> No.11552919

Kcups are modestly priced, and you do not need to buy Keurig (tm) cups to use the machine. It is "decentralized" and thus has been successful.

Juicero packets you can squeeze by hand, without ever buying the machine. This it has been unsuccessful.

Why don't you get this? We all have blind spots but Jesus...

>> No.11552943

What's the absurd markup? $600 is pretty reasonable for the specs on their official miner.

You're confused on what a cryptocurrency is or isn't. Skycoin definitely has cryptographic properties. It uses a masternode until they're finished working on consensus after they release the primary user of said consensus, Skywire.
From a development standpoint, it's much more organized to easily create all these pieces and tie them together with consensus once satisfied.

Kcups have a vast markup for someone to spoon it into a little plastic cup for you, on top of the normal markup that any coffee would have. Don't be disingenuous when trying to argue a side, anon.

You're better off trying to appeal to ease of use or one of those gay reusable cups that were mentioned.

Or just buy a fucking $20 coffee maker and use what you would have spent on a Juicero or a Keurig or a Chainlink on some Skycoin.

>> No.11555412

Get this: noone will bother

Skycoin has barely 1000 people interested in it, 80% of which will be pajeets

That leaves 200 people max to build a wireless internet
Of these 200, 50% of them will be bagholders or NEETs with no money or skill to do anything

So that leaves 100 people in theory to build a global internet

Another 50% of these will be synths coke buddies

So that leaves 50 people in total with any skills to do something. These people will all have jobs since they arent hopeless skill less NEETs or pajeets. They wont bother because there is literally no incentive to put an eyesaw legally questionable pajeet antenna on their roof to forward some packets to nobody

Your math is wrong.
1500 actual users is more than most of the top 20 coins can say, lol. (there's several DIYs and other miners with only 4 nodes, etc)

They actually made sure that the current distribution is evenly done. What you see online now are an evenly spread global selection of operators for the testnet.
Once mainnet is ready, even if millions of pajeets pile on to the network, they won't get paid unless somehow someone needs to route traffic through India.

The people vested in Skycoin are definitely vested. Maybe everyone but you, who was too lazy to get their official miner working and earning.

My miner is DIY. I'll probably buy an antenna from them as long as it costs less than $150 and build some DIY antennas as well.
