Vertcoin / DarkCoin
Be prepared for a long-ish post. Over the last few months since vertcoin's inception, I have seen coins come and go, and some of them gain more audience - but none of these coins have the following, the developmental support, or the background that vertcoin has. Nontheless, as people come and go and tout the latest fad, I feel its about time that these points were addressed in one single post, rather than spread across various replies. Maybe a constructive debate can be had out of it - we shall see. Darkcoin - Personally, I think that Mr Duffield has done a lot of great work in this coin, and indeed deserves to benefit financially from his endeavours - he clearly is a skilled and dedicated developer. That being said, I'm amazed at the value of darkcoin lately - namely because of what I see is it's achilles heel - anonymity. Being able to send coins to another party without either party being able to trace the transaction is cool, and has so many people all gleeful over the possibilities. But I would argue that anonymity for a currency is not only pointless, it is counter-productive. What I would argue for instead is Privacy. They are different. Take darksend, and the soon-to-be-implemented SX Stealth Addresses. One is about anonymity, and the other is about Privacy. An anonymous transaction in theory should be untraceable - from both ends. There is no way for someone at a later date based on the information in the blockchain and private keys of the addresses to discover what was sent or received from where. The regulatory and legal implications of this ability are mindblowing, but not very useful for all intents and purposes. They are however highly conducive for illicit usage, and consequently, favour such operations. A private transaction by contrast is one where only the person who holds the private key can trace the transaction. To anyone else without this information, it is untraceable. The regulatory and legal implications of this by comparison are far more realistic. One can regulate, and also defend, provide sensitive disclosure of information, to the appropriate third parties - investigations can be done, and people can be held as complicit based on their actions. Of course people can choose to destroy their private key and with it the link is removed - however that is an implicit action on their part - and such actions have a legal basis for legislation, at least in modern society. (ie "Why did you destroy your private key? As opposed to your private key is useless for us anyway") What this means is that given the two options, a regulatory body would never choose the anonymous option. Given the two options, a business, an investor, a broker, and so forth - may like the idea of the anonymous option, but realise the message it sends - it opens them up to further scrutiny that is totally un-necessary and avoidable by the use of SX Addresses. Businesses can operate in private without people analysing the blockchain for their transactions, but at the same time, records can be kept or discovered if the business so chooses. Consequently, on this point - This is why I am amazed at the current value of DarkCoin - anonymity can never win over privacy when it comes to the real world. And the anonymity factor is just a pr nightmare waiting to happen. It may not have happened yet much, but it will - when the next dark-web site gets busted, or drug cartel, or something happens - and its discovered that they used DarkCoin to finance the operations - What legitimate business or Investor is going to want to touch it over Bitcoin, or Vertcoin or the others? It doesn't have first mover advantages, only a potential future for the underground - and of course that may be a big future for it. But its not one I want to associate with. Vertcoin on the other hand, by supporting SX Stealth Addresses, actually enhances Businesses, Investors, and even the average user. SX Stealth is less useful for hiding your trails from discovery, but better at hiding your information from the public - so far more suited to the day-to-day business and merchant world that Vertcoin aims to reach. To those of you who are not convinced of Vertcoin's (IMO) Superiority in this regard to Darkcoin ask yourself this - Why would someone involved in business choose an anonymous and potentially "murky" currency when it has very little if anything of use to offer that Vertcoin with its SX Stealth Addresses couldn't?
Let's kick of with the Whitepaper of the Week: EUNO
What is EUNO? EUNO is a currency based on privacy of the end user. It is a currency that has Proof of Stake (POS) as well as Proof of Work (POW). EUNO has a relatively low max supply and an extremely fast transaction time. Using the privacy aspect of the coin to make transactions(Darksend), users can anonymously send EUNO without any tracing of the sender. Darksend transactions are facilitated by the EUNO Masternodes. EUNO Masternodes help with the network as well as create a means to receive new EUNO Whitepaper abstract
The upsurge in the number of cryptocurrency projects since the inception of Bitcoin in 2009 has brought tremendous technological innovation and utility models into the decentralized digital currency space. Despite that, cryptocurrencies are still to date mostly viewed as speculative investment and store of value instruments. This notion has devalued the potential benefit of their use in resolving real logistic, economic and societal bottlenecks, and has necessitated a sober approach in addressing obstacles to their wide public acceptance. Indeed, mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies continues to be hindered by polarized perceptions between different actors – public entities, the financial sector, merchants and consumers. As a result, the overall market remains extremely niche, highly volatile and susceptible to confidence shocks. At face value, this divide can be traced to (i) a wide misconception of use in illicit activities that has suspended the process of public recognition, (ii) perceived risks to traditional financial and monetary structures, (iii) overstated weaknesses in terms of scalability, speed of transactions and network vulnerabilities, (iv) price volatility, and (v) perceived complexity of use. While those concerns are to some extent valid, we view that their influence is overemphasized due to a much more rudimentary cause, which we identify as the status quo bias. As well as adhering to basic requisites of security and usability, diffusion of technologies that potentially carry broad economic and social implications compel the presence of a system that promotes active use and curbs early adopter risk. Short of such a design, potential users would more likely retain their preference for prevalent payment methods, barring the few for which the status quo already imposes greater risks. Building on that, we assess obstacles to cryptocurrency mainstream adoption within the context of a behavioral approach from which we derive key lessons for the development of EUNO coin. EUNO coin was created with the aim of tapping into the core attributes that have hindered wide public acceptance while not compromising the key features that make cryptocurrencies a revolutionary technology: decentralized, trustless, immutable and incorruptible. EUNO combines solid security features building on previously developed cryptocurrencies that have succeeded in addressing network vulnerabilities and minimizing incentives for malicious attacks. From a user’s perspective, EUNO is a privacy-by-choice coin focused on accessibility and usability through platforms and tools that aim to support commercial exchange with minimal requirements of operational knowledge and merchant infrastructure. Furthermore, EUNO is built with an aim to survive independently of its founders in the longer run. It embraces a community-driven governance structure that promotes transparency and flexibility, and facilitates adaptation to the needs of the market. In terms of exposure and user acceptance, we introduce into the cryptocurrency space the Adoption and Convergence Incentivized Distribution (ACID) protocol, the function of which is to incentivize the use of EUNO in commercial transactions, and promote a wider and more equitable coin distribution. The ultimate vision of EUNO is a widely accepted and extensively distributed digital currency to be used by consumers over the air (OTA) in near field communication (NFC), point of sale (POS) transactions, with minimal requirements for technical expertise by users and integration processes by merchants.
Hey DarkCoiners, I was honored to be selected by Evan as a third party outside of the development team to review the DarkSend source code. Announcement here. Unfortunately I'm not bit-rich enough to work on just any project that strikes my fancy, so I generally have to prioritize the projects that pay over the ones that don't. I'm throwing up a donation address for anyone willing to send a few DRK my way. Even if I receive 0 donations, I'll still be reviewing the code, so no worries about that; donations will just enable me to put more concentrated effort into the review, which is especially important in meeting the deadlines that Evan has set to release new versions of the client. Why fund my code review?
The last several years I've been a security researcher and consultant. The majority of my time has been spent on code review in particular, and a good chunk of that analyzing C/C++ code, which is what DarkSend is written in.
Recently I've been researching the CoinJoin technology that DarkSend is based on, and released an advisory about flaws in a popular mixing service provided by Blockchain.info based on CoinJoin. I'm sufficiently technical that I was able to produce proof-of-concept code exploiting the weakness (soon to be released open source).
I have many years of experience in computer science and security, including (for what little it's worth) a graduate degree in said topics.
Let me know if you have any other questions about the project. Donations: XqHt831rFj5tr4PVjqEcJmh6VKvHP62QiM Regards, Kristov Edit July 19: I hugely appreciate everyone's generous support this project. It will be a big help in allowing me to focus my time on it. I wanted to provide a little update to give you an idea of what will be taking place, and soliciting your feedback. The last few days, I've been corresponding with Evan discussing the design of DarkSend+. We're covering both topics of privacy and practicality. I think we'll continue this back-and-forth until Evan feels settled on the next DarkSend+ design. When I receive code from Evan, I'll be doing the following:
Examining the code for typical C/C++ bugs: buffer overflows, format string vulns, heap-based vulns, data value errors (e.g. integer overflows, integer comparison bugs). I don't expect to find much in this department, since Darkcoin was forked from a carefully written codebase that has already been heavily audited (Bitcoin/Litecoin). Depending on what's going on in the code, I may also look for less common issues such as environment variable abuse, Time-of-check-time-of-use vulns, multithreaded/re-entrant code issues, error handling, character encoding, and so on. I won't be fuzzing or otherwise dynamically interacting with binaries. I'll be sticking to manual review of the code, with the exception of a few static analysis scripts that I've written myself (but haven't gotten around to open sourcing yet). I'll pay particularly close attention to areas of the code that handle outside sources of data, since those are usually the focus of attackers.
Double-checking the design of DarkSend+ to see if any issues surface while examining the implementation that didn't come up while discussing the design.
Ensuring that the implementation complies with the design.
All of my findings will first and foremost go to Evan. I'll discuss with him what options make sense to report back the findings to the community once they have been addressed -- I'd like to disclose the details of my review as much as possible so people can see what they have donated toward, but that's really Evan's call.
Atlas a liar, Duffield a scammer, Coinjoin broken, Darkcoin not anonymous?
I keep reading about this again and again and again and again. Right now after I linked the deepdotweb article, some guy (Nekomata, he loves another coin which claims pure anonymity.) on bitcointalk totally lost his mind and started calling Atlas a liar, Duffield a scammer and Darkcoin totally broken. If you guys came across such accusations, here are some arguments based on facts that could help you to turn the discussion to your favour. Is Duffield a scammer?No! Darkcoin is one of the few coins with devs which do not hide behind new forum accounts or pseudonyms. He also keeps developing innovation which is of high value for all cryptos, including bitcoin. darkcoin.io/meetteam.html Did Duffield create that instamine on purpose to rip us off?No! It's proven (and can be looked up at the blockchain anytime) that the instamine was fast and fairly distributed and not collected by the devs or other insiders. bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=778616 Why is it closed source then? Will Duffield hack my computer?No! Darksend is closed source during the development phase to avoid publishing vulnerable code. Nobody is forced to use the closed RC-clients as there is a fully working open source version on github available. In addition, the source code will be release after careful security and code review on Sept/29/29014. github.com/darkcoinproject/darkcoin Is Atlas a liar and Darkcoin pumper?No! Kristov Atlas is a well known privacy and security researcher who was one of the first guys proving coinjoin vulnerable. Saying he does not know what he does mainly shows people have no idea what they type. coinjoinsudoku.com/advisory CoinJoin, as used in Darkcoin, does NOT bring full Anonymity!!1No! The linked 3 pages PDF (outdated by 4 months of development by the way) is a joke. It concludes from "let's try", "very likely", "very likely", "very likely", to "strong evidence" and "it has been shown". This paper was at the time of writing (May/31/2014) not proving anything and is today not relevant anymore as the analysed code was removed from the darkcoin core client on Aug/13/2014 with RC4. For serious weaknesses in Darksend it's worth to look at the research by Atlas. darkcointalk.org/threads/reply-to-kristovs-paper.2325 But masternodes are centralized, FAIL!!!!11ßNo! Masternodes are nodes connected via peer-to-peer-protocol and everyone is able to create his own masternode. That's pure decentralization by definition. A centralized node would be a single point of failure and could be taken down by an ISP, government, etc. That's not the case here though. wikipedia.org/wiki/Peer-to-peer If you come across anything else, please let me know and we get the facts straight. With the upcoming source code release we should start cleaning up the fears, certainties and doubts.
BTG is in top 10 in CoinMarket Cap! Here is why it should be in the top 5.
How I see the top 10 currencies on CoinMarketCap.com
1 Bitcoin is the number one cryptocurrency, with all the hype and all the press. I do not see any coin overtaking it in the near future. Probably never.
Bitcoin Gold IS better than bitcoin in MANY ways.
A) Bitcoin Gold allows for GPU mining on people’s home computers and it is ASIC resistant, which makes for a more decentralized coin. (One of the founding principles of bitcoin, which has fallen by the wayside with Chinese asic (such as BITMAIN) controlling most of the mining market and allowing it to pull all sorts of shenanigans. B) Bitcoin transactions have become slooooooooow! (Bitcoin GOLD is much faster) C) Bitcoin transactions are PRICEY! You can't even send someone $10 worth of bitcoin because the fees would eat the entire transaction. This is why STEAM dropped bitcoin. The fees have become ridiculously high (see miners controlling the market above as to reasons for this) Bitcoin Gold has lower fees. D) The network for bitcoin can be VERY unstable. Whenever Bitmain wants to move the miners over to it's own fraud coin, bitcoin cash, they slow the market and delay transactions. This should be seen for what it is: an ATTACK on bitcoin. With all that said, bitcoin still carries on and the price continues to climb! It remains #1 in marketcap.
2 in marketcap is Etherium. People love to remind you that Microsoft is backing Etherium. Yeah, but guess what. Etherium's network is an absolute mess!!
Hundreds of millions of coins have been lost because of a "bug". WOW. The 44billion dollar Ether network was brought to its knees by Crypto Kittie, a digital cat child’s app that uses Etherium contracts to trade digital pussies. Etherium shouldn't be number 2. Not until they can create a stable network. Who knows what will bring it down next? Digital dogs?
3 Bitcoin Cash. This currency is a fraud. It merely exists to allow Bitmain to use asic boost, to give it an advantage mining coins. Once Segwit went into place on bitcoin they could no longer use asic boost and lost their advantage so they forked bitcoin for greed. They tried to take a bunch of miners with them and force everyone who wants to buy an antminer to pay for them in Bitcoin Cash, driving up BCC and trying to take down BTC. This is a fraud currency and everyone should ignore it, and let it die on the side of the road like the diseased rodent it is.
4 Litecoin This is a great coin. It is more stable than every coin above it. The network is reliable and the transactions are fast. As if that were not enough, the fees are ridiculously low. So low that they have attracted STEAM, who just dropped bitcoin, to allow people to purchase on their store with Litecoin.
This should be the number 2 coin, in my opinion. (only because nothing is going to dethrone Bitcoin.)
5 Ripple If you have ever invested in ripple, and thought the price was going to go up and was surprised how it suddenly came crashing down, well you are not imagining things and you are not alone. The price on this coin is manipulated.
Don’t be me wrong, Ripple is a useful coin with good tech behind it. Fast transactions, good scalability and low fees, but this coin is used by banks to transfer fund between them. They do not want to the value to go up because that would make the fees larger. This “global “token is mainly traded on Korean exchanges. This coin was not designed to be a holder of value, so if you are looking to invest, I would stay away from Ripple. Anything over 25 cents is risking a sudden plunge. I’m amazed to see it at 36 cents.
6 IOTA - I love IOTA. What a great coin with a great team behind it. The network (Tangle) is very advanced and they love to brag about how they are an improvement over bitcoin. The people involved in IOTA tend to be very passionate and haters of blockchain.
The problem? Well, their wallets don’t even work! You can buy it on Binance, but you can’t even withdraw it because they have so many problems trying to get a wallet to be stable. For a coin that suddenly shot up to $5 (I rode a lot of that up and jumped out) on the news that they were working with Samsung, Microsoft and others on an information sharing network, I would think they could get their transaction network up and running so people can keep coins reliably in their wallets and get them off exchanges.
7 DASH One of a kind. The network funds itself. Unheard of. It’d decentralized with Masternodes that vote on how to spend the budget. (masternodes controlling the future don’t sound decentralized to me, but I digress) They claim instant transactions and privatesend (wasn’t this darksend?) This used to be XCoin in Jan 2014. 10 days later the core dev team changed the name to Darkcoin. Later they changed the name to DASH (not to be confused with Dashcoin, which is exactly what many people do… get confused.)
Some people would say there is a dark side to Dash coin, but to each their own.
8 NEM My first question is if the currency is called NEM, why is the symbol XEM??? NEM codes its own blockchain making it efficient and stable. If you hold 10,000 XEM, you can harvest(?) which incentivizes people to hold, which will inflate the price. (HODLING is the main reason bitcoin goes up in price. If everyone were day trading it can you imagine the volatility? When you limit the supply and there is still a high demand the price must go up. Simple as that.) NEM (or XEM) is not discussed very much and is not widely known. This is odd considering its high market cap (top 10 baby) and its solid tech. NEM (like bitcoin gold) needs some good marketing.
#9 Monero This is a PRIVATE COIN, untraceable currency. This coin has a purpose, and that purpose is protecting the privacy of the users of it. You can send and receive Monero without knowing who you sent or received coin from. This coin will increase in value as demand for privacy will only continue to increase and this is the world’s number one privacy coin (sorry dash). Some people may have ethical reasons to not want to invest in a coin that may be used for all manner of shady dealings online. That’s up to you to decide. Are you against fiat cash? For the most part cash is untraceable too, and people use it for all sorts of shady things, but people also use it for plenty of good things.
10 Bitcoin Gold Finally a version of bitcoin I can mine on my computer at home! YEAH!!! Bitcoin is SUPPOSED to be decentralized, and this is the ONLY flavor of bitcoin that lives up to that. It’s the same block interval and block size as bitcoin, but it updates difficulty on every block and prevents ASIC’s by using POW Equihash so people can mine on GPU’s at home.
As I mentioned above, Bitcoin Gold has faster transfers with lower fees and the network is not able to be manipulated by companies such as Bitmain, because large ASIC farms have no control over this network. Some mysterious forces (I wonder who?) attacked Bitcoin Gold when it first launched, with DDOS attacks and faking wallets. Despite the rough start, bitcoin gold has been widely accepted at 25 exchanges including Bittrex, HitBTC, Bitfinex, Binance and Yobit! It has even found a home in hardware wallets like Trezor and Ledger. You can use Coinomi on your phone too. http://amzn.to/2AeoyMI <----- Check Out Trezor Hardware Wallet! THE TOP 5 COINS FOR ME: 1) Bitcoin (obviously) 2) Litecoin 3) Etherium (Because of the hype) 4) Monero 5) Bitcoin Gold Honorable mentions: IOTA and NEM Find this post useful?

Airdropping masternodes — fair distribution & healthy economy of MTNC
One such worthwile project is Masternodecoin (MTNC), of which the first airdrop took place at the turn of August and September. Masternodecoin is a cryptocurrency based on DASH with 2MB block size, 60 blocks confirmation, and Proof of Stake (PoW SHA256d algorithm was only used to premine coins). Those lucky ones who supported this project from the beginning and participated in the first airdrop, got the amount needed to set up a masternode for free, but anyone who owns at least 50,000 coins can run a masternode. Masternodecoin rewards “connectivity age” instead of “coin age” thus eliminating the abuse from exchanges and users that do not actively contribute to the network. By having a static reward system, the rewards for participation are proportional to the work of each active node. Currently there are about 90 masternodes and the number is constantly increasing. These MTNC nodes allow instant transfers between addresses in a decentralized way, so even if several of them stop working, transactions are still validated without any problems. Masternodecoin also allows you to send funds using the DarkSend feature, which is fully anonymous, mixing coin transaction. Mixing removes any traces that would allow to discover the address or IP of sender. Imagine that you can transfer any amount of money to other side of the world in seconds, completely anonymously! With DarkSend, this is possible. MTNC on Coinmarketcap.com The total number of created coins is almost 104,000,000, with about half amount in circulation (locked in masternodes or on wallets and exchanges). MTNC is listed on two well-known crypto exchanges — Cryptopia and NovaExchange. Current price ranges between 1800–2200 satoshi per one MTNC, which allows to set up a masternode for about $ 10,000 (assuming present bitcoin price at around $ 10,000) and ROI may vary between 200%-300%. Considering the growing popularity of cryptocurrencies with masternodes for steady passive income, this is not an excessive price, especially since the MTNC has a lot of potential for growth thanks to the currency development plans we can see on the roadmap below. Masternodecoin roadmap The roadmap looks very appealing, thanks to the interesting features that dev plans to implement — search engine with private search or peer-to-peer chat with all messages after read, are just some of them. In addition, a very good idea for the whole currency ecosystem are the regular burnings of coins. By the end of November next year, half of the total supply of coins will be destroyed (50,000,000 MTNC). Thanks to this, as well as six rounds of airdrops, the distribution of coins is very fair, and anyone who sets up their masternode now should be happy with the future profits and growth of the MTNC value. With a huge amount of new blockchain projects and hundreds or even thousands of cryptcurrencies, it’s really hard to find such a remarkable project like Masternodecoin, with engaged dav and quickly growing community. If you are interested in Masternodecoin, you are most welcome to join the third round of airdrop, which is happening right now on the Bitcointalk forum. You can also join the discussion on the slack channel. Some useful links:
Why Reddcoin is going to the top, part 2 Yesterday I posted part 1 of my article, “Why Reddcoin is going to the top”: http://www.reddit.com/reddCoin/comments/2bspjm/why_reddcoin_is_going_to_the_top_part_1/ In the first part of the article, I separated the top 20 altcoins on coinmarketcap into three groups, and provided some argument as to why all the coins in the group “Decentralised something-or-other coins” are going to grow slower than Reddcoin. Today I am moving on to the reasons why coins in the category “Anon currency coins” are not going to be able to keep up with Reddcoin. Anon currency coins Ingenious, daring, mysterious... yes. Wanted and desired by your average everyday person? Not really. Anonymous cryptocurrency projects are and will remain at the fringe. But why? Who is interested in them?
Criminals or those looking for a digital fiscal paradise? I really don't think so, at least not yet and not for a long time to come. Why not? The unstable value of altcoins in general makes them extremely unreliable stores of value, rendering a supposed fiscal paradise a fiscal hell, and making for a dangerous way to store your godfather's money :). Also, in the long term, given the fact that law enforcement agencies are dedicated to tracking and confiscating the proceeds of crime in general, and given the recent Bitlicence regulations laid out by Ben Lawsky in particular, cryptocurrency projects that essentially offer ways to hide money are going to find themselves under intense scrutiny and pressure.
Tech geeks. Yes. There is a small but hardcore group of programmers who are obsessed with achieving anonymity for cryptocurrency transactions. This appears to be no mean feat, and my hat goes off to these people, as it goes off to anyone dedicating their intelligence to solving difficult problems. But can the combined support of these devs alone move markets? Not a chance.
Speculators. At the moment, yes, very much so. But make no mistake, bringing anonymity to cryptocurrency has been hyped beyond belief since the early days of Darkcoin. For the wider media there is a sense of nostalgia, harking back to Silk Road; it also reminds a few crypto-enthusiasts and the libertarian fringe why they loved Bitcoin back in the day. But the overwhelming force pumping Darkcoin and the swathe of anonymous coins is pure, unadulterated hype.
And there are strong indications that the hype bubble is now bursting. Look at the flagship of anonymous coins, Darkcoin. This project has a dedicated dev team and community. I applaud them for their tireless effort to get the complicated functionality of Masternode payments and Darksend working correctly. And it looks like their efforts have paid off. And the code is about to be vetted by a respected cryptographer. So why is the price not taking off? Why does it continue to stagnate and fall? Because Darksend and Masternode Payments have already been priced in, meaning that in the collective mind of investors Darkcoin should have already been fully functioning as planned for a while now. The reason then for the continued decline in prices is that the market is still returning to where it should be after an almighty hype pump. But there is another reason to doubt the long-term viability of anonymous coin projects: the Darkwallet project, set to launch very soon. Darkwallet will provide anonymising functionality to a Bitcoin wallet, and so as well as being considered short-term or fringe projects, anon currency coins look set to become obsolete in one fell swoop, when the main selling point of all these coins, the fact that Bitcoin transactions are not anonymous, is snuffed out with Darkwallet. When considering the above factors it is easy to see how Reddcoin has a target audience far, far greater than anonymous cryptocurrency, and also how anonymous coins are likely to face certain significant threats to their survival, threats that Reddcoin will not be subject to. Of course the above is a general overview of anonymous cryptocurrency. I respect the sincere efforts being undertaken for these projects and readers of this article may know of particular features offered by anonymous coins that they believe will gain traction over the long term. If so I would really appreciate your comments. The final part of this article comes tomorrow!
Discussion: Marketing and Darksend (anonymity/privacy)
Hello everyone, With the news that Darksend will be leaving Beta soon, and the recent spike in Darkcoin's price on exchanges, I believe it is time to discuss how best to begin marketing Darkcoin. Darkcoin is particularly valuable to those who value anonymity and privacy. This includes a vast potential user-base and the coin could provide a much needed service to certain communities by providing a secure method of exchanging currency. A service that was originally provided by the combination of Tor and Bitcoin. In my opinion it is time to reach out to these communities that value privacy and make them aware of Darkcoin's potential. I am not proposing spamming these communities encouraging them to adopt Darkcoin, however instead simply posting about Darkcoin's potential and the service this coin could provide these communities in the near future. I think the best course of action for Darkcoin right now is to make people aware of the coin, so that when Darksend is fully functional the adoption process will be quicker. tldr; reaching out to communities that value privacy and letting them know about Darkcoin's future potential is beneficial for the coin. Thoughts?
In only a month, the little-known bitcoin alternative known as Darkcoin has rocketed nearly tenfold in value--from around 75 cents a coin to almost seven dollars. Its selling point: Darkcoin ... Darksend, a technology that is now in beta testing, but will essentially become an anonymizer for your transactions. It is an implementation of CoinJoin and “obfuscates and provides a greater degree of anonymity to the transactions of the Darkcoin network”. This requires no extra work on the users end, they will just send Darkcoin to each other as usual.
