I'm a new node in the LiteCoin Blockchain. I can mine LiteCoin now and contribute to the decentralized LiteCoin database known as the Blockchain. I am making the network broader, more accessible, and faster.

All that said, yes I am excited, since this is the first Blockchain I have contributed to. It's something new and interesting and that does bring me great joy.  :thumbs:

Cross-post but this might be having an impact on the cryptocurrencies market.  All those people in Ukraine rely on a centralized bank to handle their money.  With the banking systems hit hard people can't access their money.  In a decentralized system like the cryptos if a single point of network(blockchain) failure happens the whole system isn't brought to its knees.

everything that can possibly be said or done with normie money has already been covered.

keep partying on with the new age wackybucks.

make sure I get notified when a brand new cryptocurrency is launched so I can get in on the ground floor, all these other ones are stale

You want to create a PuniCrypto?  I can show you how!

Here you go Puni

Code: [Select]
pragma solidity ^0.4.0;

contract PuniCoin {
    // The keyword "public" makes those variables
    // readable from outside.
    address public minter;
    mapping (address => uint) public balances;

    // Events allow light clients to react on
    // changes efficiently.
    event Sent(address from, address to, uint amount);

    // This is the constructor whose code is
    // run only when the contract is created.
    function PuniCoin() {
        minter = msg.sender;
    }

    function mint(address receiver, uint amount) {
        if (msg.sender != minter) return;
        balances[receiver] += amount;
    }

    function send(address receiver, uint amount) {
        if (balances[msg.sender] < amount) return;
        balances[msg.sender] -= amount;
        balances[receiver] += amount;
        Sent(msg.sender, receiver, amount);
    }

    function minter() returns (address) { return minter; }

    function balances(address _account) returns (uint) {
    return balances[_account];

    PuniCoin.Sent().watch({}, '', function(error, result) {
        if (!error) {
            console.log("PuniCoin transfer: " + result.args.amount +
                " PuniCoins were sent from " + result.args.from +
                " to " + result.args.to + ".");
            console.log("Balances now:\n" +
                "Sender: " + PuniCoin.balances.call(result.args.from) +
                "Receiver: " + PuniCoin.balances.call(result.args.to));
        }
    })   
}

I want to get a new router.  I'm thinking I like what the Synology RT2600ac is all about.  Also, I'm thinking/hoping that when I pull the trigger on a NAS, Synology to Synology will be easier.

I don't know, though.  This decision is harder than I thought it would be because I've wanted the ASUS RT AC88u for a long time.  The 8 LAN ports really intrigue me because I do a lot of wired connections to push my gigabit internet to my devices with as little degradation as possible.

Anyone get either the ASUS or Synology?  They're roughly the same price, give or take twenty bucks.

I don't have any experience with either.  Need to get Saul or hF in here to give their  :th_twocents:

We do have that Trim needs a new router thread, I didn't really read much of it but there might be some discussion about them in there.

I don't know much about Synology.  I've always liked ASUS routers mainly because of the 8 ports and port-channel capabilities.  Also the tri band (one 2.4 radio and two 5 ghz radios) intrigues me.

The network guy in me gets torqued when I see the theoretical speeds being touted.  (1900, 2600,3200) They are advertising the theoretical capabilities of each radio and that number is a theoretical aggregate.  I usually tell folks to get a better understanding of their needs and the rf environment before investing in a router.  In my case the tri-band would be nice because I have a family of 7 all streaming something and that extra 5 ghz channel would free up some wireless airtime for the other devices.

There was a Linksys EA9300 Tri-Band on sale today for Prime Day.  I missed that sale b/c they sold out, but Best Buy was offering the same price, so I scooped it and will pick it up on the way home.

Pretty stoked.  Looks like a really nice device.  Great feedback in some customer reviews, and the Max Stream routers can be paired with Max Stream extenders for seamless wifi if I still need help upstairs.
