I don’t even hold Walton and this is getting old, lol

Thank you for your support. We're so glad to have you on board. Keep following us for more fully legit announcements and absolutely real competitions!

Edit: Oops we were so excited to reply we forgot to switch to the official Walton chain account.

I asked this before and didn't get much of a response:

Is there anywhere we can see any of Waltonchain's actual code? Their github is empty and there is nobody who can testify to the quality of their code. In fact, nobody can attest to the quality of ANY of their products except for a youtuber who visited them once and was shown some RFID chips.

It seems people assume they have "amazing tech", "solid fundamentals," etc, but it's all based on these open-to-interpretation partnerships. Nobody has seen any of their tech. Is this correct?

Well, considering that there are other projects that literally copy paste their model... I think open source at this point would be giving away the farm.

2 points · 4 months ago

sure, they can release their code whenever they want.

i only ask for honesty from the WTC community in not hyping up a product that neither they - nor anyone outside - has seen.

Fair enough. I've tried the beta. Mined on several different machines. Transferred tokens. It was fast and user friendly. Could be prettier and there was a couple quirks, but it seems to get the job done.

What does this show exactly... they were able to fork a blockchain? How is this impressive?

triggered

It's a serious question. So you were able to do some mining and transfer some tokens on a testnet. What does this show exactly? And why should we impressed?

Lol. You asked for experiences. I just shared mine.

It's a serious question. So you were able to do some mining and transfer some tokens on a testnet. What does this show exactly? And why should we impressed?

This part of it works. Is it impressive on its own? No.

The impressive part is the reward structure and the RFID chips which I trust are real.

Redditor for 11 months.

They've won countless awards for their innovative blockchain and RFID technologies, including a govt subsidy to mass produce their chips after receiving the highest award at the Jinjiang Competition alongside Huawei, China Telecom, ZTE, Sony Ericsson, etc. They've been held in high praise by several local chinese govts for their technology who have contracted them for different smart projects.

Their code will be open sourced when they release main net which has been recently confirmed from the team to be on track for March.

17 points · 4 months ago

How do you know those awards were for having a working product as opposed to having a great conceptual idea or plan? How do you know they weren't given out to best-in-blockchain and there weren't many other viable competitors out there?

Their mainnet isn't ready so by definition they don't have a fully working product, but how do you know those officials from a few local governments fully analyzed their test/betanet code and sensors and deemed it successful, of high quality, and with a lot of imminent potential rather than just shaking a few hands, talking to a few influential company executives, and praising what sounds like a good idea?

It just seems there's a huge range of possibilities here. I'm not saying 100% this thing is going to be bad. I'm just saying the amount of evidence that it's going to be good is still pretty sparse - and is enormously hindered by their dubious marketing practices which are proven.

And this isn't some small cap coin anymore. At half a billion dollars, if I were to take that risk and go long on "fundamentals," I would want more confirmations than what we have above. But instead, I suspect people are just in it to ride the short-term speculative wave. Which is fine. but when the team itself is in on pumping up the price, that's where they cross a line.

"brigaded"

They announced a partnership with one of the biggest coffee companies in China, I don't know what you expect. Walton was already a very well-known project before the giveaway, now it's even more on the radar. It's still going to be top 10. Very few projects have use cases as varied and legitimate as Walton.

Xiamen Ishijah Trading Co., Ltd. focuses on airport business services. It is the №1 coffee brand of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC). In 2011 it was officially authorized by the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse to become the first and only coffee brand in Fujian province, and the only coffee brand in airport service area to obtain distribution rights of Diaoyutai Coffee, a coffee brand especially served to heads of foreign states and VIPs during official visits.

Yeah I read that too but it doesn't answer my question.

Edit: from the limited details available about ishijah combined with the fact that China mostly prefers tea to coffee, makes me think this partnership is not as important as everyone is thinking it is

[deleted]
5 points · 4 months ago

It's just the start of IoT food and beverage management, and it's being rolled out to massive airports all over China. If you don't see what's coming then I don't know what else to tell you. These things snowball, just like their smart cities, smart manufacturing, and smart agriculture will.

"This partnership with ISHIJAH deals with the practical application of RFID and blockchain technologies in the catering industry. By adopting RFID tags bound to food ordered by clients, and utilizing the RFID smart billing platform, the brand-new chip-based smart billing model is established. Data is loaded to the chain automatically and the accurate integrated management of food and beverage services is achieved."

So happy I bought the dip...up 15% already!!! Love how ppl get so emotion when it comes to investing.

24 points · 4 months ago

It's such an emotion/psychological driven market, way too easy to take advantage.

I remember when Vitalik defended Childporn publicly on twitter. ETH went from $22 to $7. Which is when I bought.

Always buy ideological dips. Because it has nothing to do with the product. The price of tokens/stock represents how viable of a business case they have not how ideologically sound the team members/employees are.

12 points · 4 months ago

he what

this is not the first and only time he did something like this. He has been defending childporn or alluring to childporn being ok or morally just almost a hundred times now. I'm honestly surprised it didn't became a meme over the years.

But honestly he is genuinely autistic and probably can't understand the nuance of why it is wrong so people are cutting him some slack.

Oh it is a meme on /biz/.

Redditor for 5 months.
5 points · 4 months ago

He argues simple possesion of childporn should not be a crime. Most people over react especially given the context of who he is. Someone theoretically could upload childporn to the blockchain, which would result in everyone running a node being in possesion of it. He will argue it further than than but essentially he considers child porn data and does not feel that possessing data no matter the content should be illegal.

But they can't design a website. Jk I'm a walton holder, but some of their decisions are just baffling.

[deleted]
9 points · 4 months ago

Not disagreeing with you, but the project is still very young compared to others, and their main focus from the beginning was to focus on the tech and b2b connections in their target markets. I would like to see improvements regarding the marketing aspect to casual (western) investors aswell, but i have faith in their decision to focus heavily on building the essential hard factors first

Not sure if you’ve been here since then, but did you see the old AntShares (now NEO) website? Or their first NEO website after the rebrand? They were just as bad as WTC’s, but in time they fixed it (took a while though).

Something about Chinese companies shows they have trouble with developing simple websites, even if everything else they have is golden. Maybe they don’t care enough about us English speakers for our website, but who knows.

差不多 (cha bu duo) basically means "close enough" in mandarin and it explains every aspect of business and their concepts of professionalism.

hence the trash websites, dishonest promotions and competitions, numerous typos, etc in most chinese-run companies.

its also why your electrician might accidentally leave a live wire touching the pipe to your kitchen sink.

Any idea why this is a common occurrence in China? Also, is this also common in South Korea? As WTC has a South Korean office as well.

Just curious

Redditor for 11 months.
1 point · 4 months ago

ive never been to south korea so i cant say, but based on stereotypes it doesnt seem like it.

in china its socially conditioned. Nobody cares about anyone that isnt a part of their family or direct social circle, so they feel no obligation to do a good job. couple that with the fact that almost no business promotes based on merit, but rather based on 关系 (guanxi), or roughly translated your connections. Why should i work hard or do a good job if the credit or promotion is going to go to the bosses nephew no matter how well i do. If im the bosses nephew then why should i take the trouble to do a good job when ill get the rewards no matter what.

on top of that you have an education system that intentionally doesnt teach critical thinking skills in order to protect their kleptocratic government. A side effect of that is that chinese people rarely think of novel solutions to problems or take risks. they simply do what they are told to do, or the first thing that comes to mind without considering logical conclusions.

for example, yesterday i watched my coworker try to drive the wrong way down a one way street. when she met oncoming traffic she backed up, circled the block, and tried to drive down the same one way street, because this was the route she was shown on a prior trip. She repeated this 4 more times before i got out of the car and walked the rest of the way in frustration. She had no idea why i was even upset.

and yes, we could have just turned up a block in the grid system and driven down the one way road going in the correct direction to arrive at our destination.

Crazy how the sentiment of reddit changed from "Walton is a scam" to "Walton is going to the top 10" in just 2 days. I was an early investor in WTC, but I personally lost my trust in them after the twitter fuck up. I don't care about the 2 WTC or whatever they gave to themselves. I care about integrity and honesty and this whole ordeal showed that they don't have it.

Someone explained that in China it's common for people in companies and business to take part in all sorts of competitions, exercises, etc

Yup they fucked up, but it looks more like a staff member fucked up - and in future they should absolutely close any competition (no matter how small) to any internal members

Something we in the West seem to do by default in most cases

Has that one instance utterly shattered and undone everything else the company has been doing? Personally I wouldn't think so

Also the conspiracy of them "fixing" a competition for a measly $50 seems a bit far-fetched (also other outsiders won). More implausible than an employee who won a prize screwing up and posting from the official twitter

Programmer
11 points · 4 months ago · edited 4 months ago

i honestly suspect this too. I was weirded out reading all the top comments speaking so glowingly after the nonstop flaming the past 2 days. They are all highly upvoted and there are so many of them.

I really don't buy their excuse that a walton employee, who also had access to their main twitter, won AND forgot to sign out. those events have a low likelihood of happening. all happening at the same time? thats a stretch. not impossible, but makes me suspicious enough to look deeper. Factor in they were banning people who were asking about it and WTC wasnt offering up any explanation. If they had stated that 'excuse' right away it might be slightly more believable. Now it comes off like a PR spin. The 'proof' video they provided wasnt proof at all, it could have just been spitting out hard coded names to match the published list. on top of that, nobody has seen the code since it isn't open source and we essentially take their word for its quality. Have you seen their site by the way? for a tech company it is absolutely unacceptable. basic web practices are not followed all over the place.

Sending reddit shills to try and impact sentiment on reddit is consistent with waltons character for what i'm seeing. I sold my small bags yesterday. I don't view it as 'silly twitter fud', i see it as a serious credibility issue, something that is paramount in the speculative crypto game

No bigger red flag than WTC knights leaving the project because of their claim of false partnerships. Then they got attacked by the community claiming that they took bribes to the tune of 5 million to start false rumors or relay information to V which is laughable. Couldn't believe the level of vitriol in that thread. The WTC team's response to this twitter fiasco affirms my beliefs that they are not completely honest with the community

As ridiculous as it was for people to be condemning WTC as a scam after what happened, it is still a major blow to their authenticity.

This is what he meant by "overblown". This "incident" doesn't even compare to the United Airlines employee literally dragging their paying customer off of the airplane. How long did that blow to their authenticity last?

Rule V - No Low-Quality Content

  • High-quality submissions are encouraged.

  • Baseless price speculation, shilling, duplicate posts of front page content, screencaps of CoinMarketCap, rumours, unknown sources etc. all qualify as low-quality content and will be removed.

  • Questions that belong in the daily discussion thread: rate my portfolio, "what coin should I buy?", shill me a coin, low-market cap coins, etc.

  • Low quality recycled memes or shill memes are removed.

  • Posts without attributed source are marked for deletion. Tweets or screenshots taken out of context are not allowed.

Original Poster9 points · 4 months ago

Good question, it was covered in an AMA.

Q4: Why Walton does not have a GitHub?

Answer: We will have a GitHub. We will provide the GitHub for our full node, light node, wallet, etc. We want everything to be thoroughly tested before public access. Also, our software rollout has to be aligned with hardware R&D.

They also later stated: Yes, we will update some code on Github, but not this time. Be patient.

5 points · 4 months ago

Ok I understand that - and it's quite reasonable for a start-up that is barely 6 months old to not release their code.

What I don't understand is the assumptions made and all the hype which purport to know that WTC has some unbelievable tech that is ready for real-world adoption and which change the world, blah blah.

Everything is behind closed doors and we have no idea the quality or progress of their tech. It may just be as crappy as their new website - it's certainly a possibility, right?

The only thing that outside investors have to go off of is "partnerships" which can mean anything from "woah this is legit - we've actually run tests on it and plan to use it" to "uh ok this looks interesting, let's set up a joint preliminary venture to see where this might go but no guarantees at all"

Does this situation justify people chanting cultishly about "amazing tech" and "solid fundamentals" and practically demanding multi-billion dollar valuations, as they were doing before the twitter scandal? Eh

Their code will be partially released on GitHub after mainnet. It will not be fully open source as they want to protect the novelty of their tech.

Ok - I'm just underlining the point that nobody knows if they have great tech or not, nobody can justifiably hype it up as having great tech because nobody has seen it. It could be a major dud just like their website. It's an important point to make because lots of people just ASSUME they have great tech because other people parrot it and nobody questions.

They have done numerous test flights already with a couple of their partners which were successful. Also there is a smart waste management pilot going on right now. And there is the experience and the numerous patents of the team.

7 points · 4 months ago

Do we have reports - by the partners - of how successful those "test flights" were? If not, again, we know nothing about the tech. I'm not saying it's going to be bad. I'm just saying we don't know. And since we don't know, it's irresponsible of everyone constantly touting the amazing tech, AS IF they knew, which they don't. We can only rely on the fact that certain partnerships (whatever that means) exist.

I see where you are coming from mate. We have no solid PROOF of the tech, no. However, by the time we actually can inspect and see the proof you are talking about the project will be valued much higher.

Its up to you if you want to take the risk and jump in early or you want to wait and audit and get in when the masses do.

6 points · 4 months ago

Fair enough, if WTC supporters admitted that they have no idea if the tech is actually good or not.

But 99% of the time they're getting hyped about "amazing tech" and "working product" when they have absolutely no idea. It's just hilarious

Redditor for 12 months.
5 points · 4 months ago

We do have an idea. We just haven't seen the proof yet. Numerous awards have been won due to the tech and its use cases. We've seen the numerous patents the team holds as they are public.

We do know what the tech is and the support it has received so far. This is why people state such things. Yes - there is no proof as public code yet, but you cannot expect that from a project which is yet to be launched.

7 points · 4 months ago

What awards? From what I read, the parent company (separate from walton the blockchain/rfid project) won an award for some waste management system. Ok.. so?

As for patents, ok, some members of the team hold patents from previous projects That means they should be competent or great engineers, so what?

No, that separate project is a wholly owned subsidiary of Waltonchain. And they have won awards. You're in here making a bunch of assumptions when its obvious you have not done any research.

lol the bot removed my comment because I shared another /r.

Please go to waltonchain reddit, click on the first stickied thread 'All-in-one Thread' and scroll down to 'News and Awards'. You can see there are plenty of awards :)

waltonchain CEO predicted walton to be top 4 crypto.

HEADLINE: Local CEO Says His Company Will Be Successful

People are still in shock, surprised that a CEO would have the audacity to claim that his company will be successful. No CEO in the history of business has ever said such bold words about his own company.

It was actually the Coinnest CEO who made this prediction about Walton first. And then there was the Manager of China Mobile who called Waltonchain "The next Alibaba".. which kinda goes into a similar direction.

Living in China for many many years. Never heard of this brand. 山寨 coffee place

Based on coin supply and Walton's ability to scale up with 10,000's of company side chains and more.. well, my target price for Walton starts at around $500 and up from there.

Thanks to the Twitter-gate dip yesterday I got a great position into WTC!!!! WOW the timing is excellent, can't believe I got the chance with this one.

All the math says this is going Global, best tech, best hardware, no silly API 3rd party security risk like the main competitor - $1000 per token within 18 months.

WTC has minor issues dealing with the Western world, but always comes through delivering results where it matters. Their partnerships and tech are going to blow the market up!!!!

Hey WTC team, you messed up with your shill bot. You've already posted this comment here with a different account:

https://reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/81gakh/_/dv2z5hd/?context=1

I hope your blockchain code goes through more rigorous testing than your shill bots.

Could be a bot made by an investor and not WTC. Fail anyway, I'm staying away from these guys.

Nice.

'they faked their $40 competition' 'its a scam'

GET A GRIP PEOPLE

People just sheepishly repeat what they hear. PR team fucked up, but has nothing to do with the core team and what they are accomplishing.

This was so obviously blown out of proportion it's not even funny.

It’s actually hilarious

it was actually really funny if you're in their slack - MEME-mania.

everyone's so confident there they can laugh about the situation

Yup, it was pretty funny overall and this is coming from a major walton holder. WTC was an inside job

Every positive comment about WTC = Paid shill

Can someone please hook me up with that deal? If i like WTC and get accused of being a paid shill every time i voice it I might as well get paid doing it lol

All indications are that Ishijah is a very small brand in the grand scheme of things. (still looking for more info if any Chinese people could weigh in)

Partnerships with reputable companies of any size are always good but this isn't exactly a blockbuster and not enough to wash the taste of that twitter faux pas out of my mouth.

Yeah they tiny, mom and pop lcations, and each one is also individually franchised, so could even just be one location, not entirety of the small brand.

How dare you spread that FUD!

But for real have you checked out their website? What a fucking joke. This entire subreddit is full of shills and morons.

Yeah, I was hoping it was just their English site that was bad and maybe the Chinese one is better.

If someone here has too much time: browse history of shillers and produce stats about them.. that could be very informative

$2.14 cup of coffee please ☕️

Oh, so sweet, only shillers top first 20+ comments. Nothing suspicious here, move along LE: ALL COMMENTS ARE SHILLERS :))) LE2: So, remember, it's about no1 (favorite) coffee of a small(?) institution in China!!!! And top comments are about REAL LIFE ADOPTION :))) $WTC lost all integrity with this reddit post

It's a chinese company, the GREED is great with them. I have worked in China for many years and never met such backstabbing lying bunch of people. Of course, they are not all that, but it is the CULTURE that is like that. Being back in the western world makes me enjoy challenge/conversation/honesty and doing the right thing. You can make money being honest... for many chinese it does not work that way. Look at the babymilk scandal, streetfood oil from sewage water, chicken soup which is actually cardboard paper soaked in chicken broth.

Think the coca cola kid is some mysterious guy that talks about /echain ? all local PR of shilling and pumping it up.

China. many great people, messed up culture

have you considered much of the sentiment saying "walton is a scam" was just manipulation of upvotes and comments?

i mean I find it interesting that the most popular Walton twitter thread had like 9k upvotes and over 1700 comments.

now compare that to the amount of participants in the most popular bitconnect scam thread. ~1.5k upvotes and only 600 comments.

if something about that doesn't seem off to you then you probably got manipulated and panic sold wtc on emotion.
