I have no legitimate stake in the matter, I made a few edits that I hope remove POV and still embrace the idea of Tonal Bitcoin. This is Raize, I am sorry I am not familiar enough with wiki editing to provide my signature. --Raize
Proposal for deletion
I propose to delete this article on the following grounds.
- "Tonal bitcoin" is Bitcoin, but it uses a different representation of standard bitcoin balances. Instead of using decimal, the originator proposes using tonal units. If we follow this approach to the extreme, we could also use any base X system. Why not base 60?
- These is almost no information about tonal bitcoin available on the web. All information that is available seems to come from a single source (Luke-Jr). To make matters worse, the information that is available is extremely confusing and poorly written.
- No one, with the possible exception of one person, use "tonal bitcoin" units.
- Not one exchange or business uses Tonal bitcoin units (to my knowledge).
I quote the following introductory paragraph on the bitcointalk thread by Luke-jr describing tonal bitcoin, which demonstrates the nature of the problem. "Altcoin" is used incorrectly, and I would note that nothing was created. All that the author proposes is: If you have a bitcoin balance of X in decimal notation, you can convert this to a balance Y in tonal units. This is not very profound.
I created this altcoin in January 2011 immediately after discovering Bitcoin. While many altcoins have been created since, none come close to TBC's ideal design: Shares the same blockchain as BTC, so benefits from the full security and difficulty backing the Bitcoin blockchain. Mined together with BTC - unlike ordinary merged mining, you don't get BTC plus TBC, just one or the other at your choice. Completely compatible with all Bitcoin addresses: if you send BTC to a TBC client's address, it will automatically get converted and vice-versa.
