Great read. The thing that I can't get over is the media coverage. Over 20 of China's biggest media companies broadcasting the event. That is mind blowing.
Here's a list of many of those media companies mentioned in the meeting invite (thank you to /u/cubcaller for compiling it):
Give a man a fish, and he will eat for a day. Try to teach a man to fish, and he will insult the "outdated" boat that got you out into the lake, be frustrated that you aren't catching fish fast enough, and, after his second catch, proceed to act like he is a better fisherman than you.
This is the funniest thing I read today. Thank you.
Man, thinking about the rebrand, I feel kinda bad for the guy who tattooed waltons logo on them
There is a rebrand coming that we expect to be unveiled as part of the meeting on the 28th. We do not yet know what that rebrand entails.
RikkiTikki? I asked him about that when it first came up. He said he was prepared for this possibility - he wanted the nostalgia of the original. :)
There was a point this weekend where MOD, VEN, WABI, and WTC were all near the top of the Binance leader board. Great to see supply chain coins getting attention. There's room.
Yeah that makes a lot of sense I just don't know how to identify and value those instances into a dollar amount.
I was thinking one would start the valuation on the worst case scenario which is WTC only applies to places where RFID currently exists --> then you layer on other scenarios such as enabling RFID in situations where it is otherwise impossible and include the cost savings there.
I understand, and I apologize if this comes across as rude, but I just don't think it's fair to say "A safe assumption is WTC only adds value to places where RFID is currently used for asset tracking."
It's not rude, and I appreciate the comment.
If you're trying to value something, it's best business practice to start with a worst case scenario and see if it's still a good investment / value. Then add on other assumptions and consider those upside.
That's how I'd approach it at least and what I believe to be a safe assumption. Others are of course free to do a valuation however they see best, these are just my 2 cents.
I see! I think I misunderstood what you meant by safe assumption. I totally see how this is a useful "most conservative" base to start with. Thank you for bearing with me :)
guys one question relating Masternodes. I know you have to stack 5k coins but are already set up? where can I read about the rewards? I checked the website and FAQ but found nothing. thanks
There is some information about the MN reward structure in the GMN AMA.
We're still waiting for details (probably until main net launches?), but we did hear in the most recent AMA that the first year rewards for an MN are expected to beat the first year rewards for a Dash MN (>18%).
Edit: There are a couple ways to read that Q/A about Dash. Not sure if it's meant to only apply to GMN. Someone may be able to come along and help clarify.
Found this video on WTC tonight (video created right before red market).
One take away was his math. "If Walton 10x's , it barley cracks the Top 15 in MarketCap" . That, combined with the teams Top 4 prediction only means one thing... 20x+ ...
Thanks for sharing this. Walton got some great coverage by YouTubers a few months ago, but it's great to see new content that puts all of the recent progress in context. I hope YT publishers who already covered WTC will give it another shot as well. A lot has changed!
Well if Vechain can get a MC of 1.8 billion, we can be even higher. That would put WTC above 70 dollars. It is just a matter of time.
I love this attitude. There's room for both. Could even argue VEN is providing a slipstream effect for the category.
This is excellent advice. If I could add one thing - don't be surprised if you find some misinformation out there. Try to get a few sources for anything you are considering making an investment into.
For example, one of the top Google results for the coin I'm most invested in calls it a scam in bold letters. But the scam thread is old and a lie. If you read it, every argument made in it can/has been debunked. The author just refuses to take it down. Don't trust every piece of information out there. Scrutinize it and decide for yourself or you may be misled.
Not sure where 65k comes from. But the youtube video is someone who pulled it from the NIC trades facebook page which has over 10k followers on the FB page.
Yeah, that was me. Tried to link directly to her FB broadcast, but couldn't find a way to make it start at the right time (like an hour into it). The highlight clip seemed like the next best thing.
If you're going to input your private keys on a PC it really should be a totally clean fresh install with nothing else running on it. Just a fresh copy of windows with the latest patches and up to date chrome or firefox. The only add-on you really should be running is adblock plus since it prevents ads and pop-up which potentially could contain malicious code. Not that you should be visiting any sites where this should be an issue, but still.
Antivirus is good, my personal favorite is malwarebytes. And don't use a wifi-connection, especially not a public one.
You've got me genuinely considering getting a cheap, new netbook strictly for this purpose. Thanks for the insight.
Guys totally new to cryptocurrency and have been advised by two knowledge people to invest in Walton.
My issue is I cannot register for Binance as it's not taking any new registrations.
Can someone please advise me the best service to use? I have money sitting in my coinbase to spend!
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Ps by Money I mean ETH.
That might depend on where you are. For example, OKEx has a WTC/ETH pair, but does not service some areas of the world (including the US).
Have you seen one of these before? Lists (almost) all of the pairs out there for a given coin. Let us know generally where you are and we can recommend!
They announced in their AMA last week they are planning to launch the main net with an immediate 3 child chains. Interested to see if those three are companies from this list or altogether new endeavors.
