Here’s a a little script I wrote to send me alerts when the prices of certain alt coins pass defined points. I have it running on a cron job and it creates a log file instead of using sessions in order to limit repeat alerts to once an hour. The directory will need to be writable for the log file. Obviously you have to set the alert points by hand in the PHP but if anyone is interested I can set this up as a service with a web interface. It also sends an alert when fresh markets are added to Bittrex, never miss a pump and dump again!

Unluckily this is not a screenplay from their upcoming online space strategy game, this one was on Bittrex, and not the very first from what I can gather…,

Yesterday I noticed there was an over 40% spread for BTC-HYPER (Hyper) and the price had gone very low, under 8200, well under the 10K floor I identified last week. Upon analysis of the market history I found a series of puny incremental sell orders that ramped the price down from about 14K to 8100 along with a few larger conditional and funk sells. All those orders came in at 12:56 and it wasn’t until 13:17 that someone stepped in and cleaned up the low sells then I was able to pick up a few fright sells myself at 13:26 and later bought a little more at the ask price to attempt to make the market look normal again.

Who did this and why? It doesn’t look like the attackers used the attack to get cheap HYPER. I guess HyperCrypto has enemies and while it seems like all these alt coins have their fair share of haters it also seems like David Seaman‘,s attempts to promote (not pump) this coin have annoyed some, maybe they don’t like the competition.

And where were the Hyper team and David Seaman during all this? It was Labor Day but I’d have some alert bot setup to let me know when things like this happen. Or maybe they’re responsible for the buy back at 13:17? No comment since either. I suppose they feel like it would be counter productive to even acknowledge this kind of attack, that and the fact that many coins like Hyper are vulnerable when there just aren’t enough buy orders with enough volume to prevent an attack or spontaneous collapse like this.

I’m not dumping my HYPER yet, I love watching my wallet balance increase daily with their proof of stake mining. I sure hope they come out with some Hyper coin games soon tho’, even just retrofitting existing games. It’s cool that they’ve already revived the classic game “Zandagort” (I know nothing about computer games) but they announced on July 24 that the ETA for integrating Hyper Coin into it was just Two weeks away. It seems like you have to multiply any promised time line for altcoin implementations by a factor of Trio or more

In any case this has been an incredible learning practice for a noob trader like me to see how markets are manipulated and how I can even manipulate them myself tho’ I also see that it takes constant vigilance to keep propping up a coin like this. Looking at other coins it seems that there are bots in place to help stabilize them, however I’m still not 100% sure about what I’m observing. I don’t know if you would call it disingenuous or just a wise stir to give your team some breathing room, you can’t have spectacular fresh announcements every week just to keep interest alive.

Disclaimer: I’m not an authority on any of this, I’ve just looked into certain coins and observed the markets closely for the last few days.

So I’ve made my very first big mistake as a noob alt coin investor: I had a sell order on BTC-XDQ (Dirac) for .00049 which made me something like 23% profit, not bad, right? Well right after that it shot up to well over .0007 and resumes at over .0006, evidently due to the announcement that Dirac will be integral to BlockTech‘,s fresh exchange AltMarket.

BTC-HYPER (Hyper) seems to be doing fairly well also, hovering around .00014. I had a sell order at that point but canceled it before it got there, instead my Hyper has gone into my Hyper wallet to earn interest. I’ll get more if the price dips again.

After some gains last week, BTC-RZR (Razor) seems to be lodging back into it’s floor level of around .0003 and I’ve already acquired more.

It seems like cryptic remarks by Bryce Weiner precede some spikes

Are there any other coins I should be looking at besides these and Pink and Nautilus? Let me know!

Disclaimer: I’m not an authority on any of this, I’ve just looked into certain coins and observed the markets closely for the last few days.

This past week on the Bittrex exchange it seems like BTC-HYPER (Hyper) has found it’s floor around .0001, with BTC-XDQ (Dirac) at around .0004 however both coins proceed to exhibit higher spikes for day traders.

BTC-RZR (Razor) had a very stable floor around .0003 with a much narrower spread tho’ it has had some bumps which seem to be resulting in solid gains, only time will tell. I also looked at BTC-PINK (Pink) but am not so sure it looks to have an established floor yet.

On David Seaman’s podcast Bryce Weiner of BlockTech mentioned this kind of flooring with certain alt coins that have strong dev teams and plausible use case scripts Witness. This is in contrast to the “pump and dump” that had been seen with other alt coins that were hyped and then crashed because ultimately they have no reason to exist, unlike the coins mentioned above that are attempting to do useful things that Bitcoin doesn’t do and doesn’t want to do. On the other palm no one knows yet if the teams behind these coins will actually realize their ambitions. Only Razor seems like it’s close with a fresh online marketplace which is supposed to launch any day now.

I very recommend the Two other latest interviews with Bryce also: See Witness.

Eventually here’s a ordinary angular.js web app I created to demonstrate numerous Bittrex tickers on one page. My old Macbook Pro can’t treat all those Bittrex tabs at once and stream movie at the same time

Today I’d like to describe a elaborate web application that I built from scrape over a year ago and proceed to update on a regular basis. It was created for a live music company here in Fresh York City that provides bands for weddings and other events. They are in high request and have dates scheduled years in to the future.

I’ve just ended a project for the NYU Tisch School of Acting Graduate program Alumni Association or GAAA: I built a custom-made social networking application using the Symfony framework. I also created a plugin for WordPress that makes it user authentication system rely on the Symfony user login control.

I have just finished a project that involved the integration of the Trio.

When somebody hires a graphic designer they expect to get their money’s worth. Sometimes this translates into a desire to create something unique and out of the ordinary. After all web design should be creative, right?

While there is a little technical jargon here I think that anybody who is at all involved with the development, or expansion of a web application needs to read this. I know exactly the kind of situation he is talking about…,

“The problem is that PHP is just too effortless. It tempts you to attempt out your ideas, and flatters you with good results. You write much of your code straight into your Web pages, because PHP is designed to support that. You add the stronger code to functions in library files, and before you know it you have a working Web application.

I am often asked to create a “basic” or “simple” pic gallery that the site possessor can update themselves. There are a number of front end options to consider when creating this kind of gallery.
