An exploit existed [in PIVX], and it was patched. [PIVX's] handling of this (i.e., denying it had any potential payload) is VERY telling about the calibre of project you're involved in. And, thusly, PIVX went down several notches in my eyes tonight.

PIVX master nodes are unwinding – people losing faith. If they start to liquidate (already happening on PIVX)... the cascade will be something to behold.

I think PIVX is better [than Zcoin] for Zerocoin implementation. It uses the same libraries, but with Proof-of-Stake. But industrial-strength privacy is still Zcash and Monero.
