What is Bitcoin? - BBC News

Dogecoin is a joke coin.

doge is a joke coin. a meme made into a coin. a troll coin to legitimite alt coins
it has the life cycle of any normal meme. first hype, then people get bored with it and jump to the next.
e.g. earthcoin has a EAC/us-dollar-only exchange planned, a android wallet and has a huge dev team behind it.
doge has what? a meme? that is of no use. dev team? you mean one guy who thinks the doge meme is funny. tomorrow he'll think something else is funny.
doge is as good as dead. and so are the inevitable cat/nyancat/[enter any meme people might have heard of]coins
this business is about serious alternatives to litecoin and bitcoin. not about having a laugh

We're still here!
Disregard the naysayers!

EDIT: This post meant to be a little joke, but it blow up. Just like Dogecoin. such explosion. many happy. much doge. wow.

A List of Coins People Find Suspicious | Welcome to the Nigerian Scam 2.0: Mastercoin, Nxt, Ripple (December 25th 2013)

December 25th, 2013
Ripple, Mastercoin, and Nxt all claimed to be Bitcoin-2.0. All are ranked top immediately due to their total circulation numbers or inflated price. Ripple ranked #2, Mastercoin #4, and Nxt #6 as indicated on coinmarketcap.com . It is pretty hilarious to see each subreddit supporters for these coins calling one another scamcoin. Well, guess what, they are either being suspicious or outright scamcoins. Also, check out Mastercoin's pre-sale exodus address of of 5,120.6 BTC. http://blockchain.info/address/1EXoDusjGwvnjZUyKkxZ4UHEf77z6A5S4P
It is a sad day for crypocurrencies. Alternate source without those three: http://www.cryptmarketcap.com/ , however it still has scamcoins listed there (e.g. Quark, Protoshares, Mega, Novacoin, etc.). I will recommend a better listing if one comes around. Anyway I will change the format and will update the list daily/weekly and put it sticky. The full incomplete list is below:
Before going with the list, PLEASE READ THIS GUIDELINE I wrote to have an understanding about scamcoins' common traits: http://bit.ly/18fVFQr
1) Africoin discussion: http://www.reddit.com/scamcoin/comments/1rwetv/africoin/ assessment: http://www.reddit.com/scamcoin/comments/1s40s2/assessment_of_africoin/
2) Quarkcoin discussion: http://www.reddit.com/scamcoin/comments/1rvp62/any_opinions_on_quarkcoin/) /quarkcoin
Reason: 98% or more already mined or pre-mined. 245,673,985 already in circulation since July 21, 2013 based on www.coinmarketcap.com. Great for pump and dump. On bitcointalk's release page discussion: "Total of 247 million QRK will be mined in ~ 6 months, after that ~ 1 million QRK p.a. (~ 0.5% p.a inflation)"
Auditing reveals:30.26% of all Quarks owned by 27 wallets. Source: http://quark.freeforums.net/thread/368/auditing-block-chain https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=260031.0
Regarding Quarkcoin's development team:http://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/1su2aj/the_scam_behind_quarkcoin/ce1efux
3) Novacoin discussion: http://www.reddit.com/scamcoin/comments/1ru8ru/novacoin/
Reason: pre-mined /novacoin
Total shares: 504,839 NVC, price at $21.48 a share ! . Rumors has it the creators mined most of the coin and hold about 90% shares.
From here, https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=144047.0 check out this line "There have been claims that over 200.000 coins were premined by the developer. The developer has claimed that only 60.000 coins have been premined but apparently BTC-e admitted that they got 100.000 coins to accept this currency on their exchange"
4) Ripple /ripplers
Reasons: tokens/money without mining, centralized system. It goes against the ideas of most crypto currencies stood for.

Im sorry but this pool isnt going to mine it. The first block of mooncoin is at 1388427134 ( Mon, 30 Dec 2013 18:12:14 GMT ) , 30 minutes earlier than anyone got access to source and / or wallet. Multipool shouldve established block #1 and stopped mining and/or not have any downtime while the coin is launched. ITS A FUCKING PREMINE SCAM COIN"
30) VisaCoin: Barring legal threat from the real Visa company, It is pre-sale nearly 80BTC with outlandish claims and nonexistence source codes.
