Altcoins[edit]

Litecoin, Dogecoin, etc. are designed to support faster transaction times than Bitcoin. However, I acknowledge that they aren't relevant to this page because:

  • The centralization of hashing power in China is an issue for many cryptocurrencies (especially Litecoin), not just Bitcoin. This may not be the case for Gridcoin, which is mined in association with the credit system of existing BOINC projects, but Gridcoin isn't anywhere near popular enough.
  • Bitcoin will always be more popular (well-known) just because it came first. This is the whole reason the term "altcoin" exists.

In summary, I have no specific suggestions on the article content. --Eighty5cacao (talk) 22:32, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

Ad blocking[edit]

I do not actually have Adblock Plus; I use extensions such as Greasemonkey, Stylish (an old version before spyware was added), Rewrite HTTP Headers (JS), Policeman, and userChromeJS, which block ads and do many other stuff too; I also normally browse with document scripts disabled. But what I would like to have is the ability to put in extensions for specific URLs to override the entire DOM with my own implementation (as well as the JavaScript Date and Math.random objects), as well as the meaning of HTML elements, and to block or replace individual inline scripts (e.g. to replace jQuery with my own version). I have the right to not download all of the files if I do not want them. --24.207.47.161 21:46, 10 August 2018 (UTC)
