I’m a big walton fan, but maybe a lot/most of the “fud” is well deserved. Two days after their twitter snafu, which put a bad taste in most everybody’s mouth, they announce a huge partnership. Then a day later, after hardcore Walton fans made a fool of themselves talking Walton up, they delete their partnership tweet possibly topping how bad they looked with the giveaway. I sold my Walton immediately after they deleted that tweet, I may or may not buy back in later.
It’s important to take off the rose tinted glasses and look at the project you are invested in. I still believe in the idea, but something funky is going on with their team, at least their PR team.
We now know that the Chinese Govt. are meeting on the 15th to discuss new regulations and Walton was told to remove it. They were also not allowed to say "the government told us to remove this tweet". As for the giveaway...that was made out to be something more than what it actually was. If you believe in the project invest. If you don't thats ok too.
Anyone have experience mining with an Intel i7-4770k on the testnet?
Its crazy how much of the CC general discussion is aimed at calling WTC "shady" or how its terrible. I dont get why there is so much hate toward walton chain.
The fact of the matter is, the Coinnest and Coinlink announcements are absolutely huge. I think people are confusing these exchange partnerships as simple listings.. Waltonchain has PARTNERED with these exchanges, which is different from a listing because this means WTC will receive special support and privileges.
This could very well mean free advertised Waltonchain ICOs, WTC being used as the medium of exchange (AKA WTC pairings) etc. This also goes on to highlight the true scope of the project. Exchanges don't just partner with any project. Coinnest and Coinlink obviously see something in WTC that the majority of us don't if they're willing to work this deeply with Waltonchain. The reason why I believe this post deserves more upvotes is because I don't think people have contemplated its true potential, regardless of Korean FUD. But then you take into account the fact Coinnest and Coinlink are already certified compliant exchanges in Korea (Coinlink being the first KOSDAQ bitcoin exchange), and you've got yourself a perfect storm brewing.
Thanks for the info.
