Title: [WHY] WHYCOIN OFFICIAL ANN | Non-Profit | 10% PoS
Post by: whycointeam on October 27, 2015, 04:20:46 PM
OFFICIAL WHYCOIN THREAD

NOTICE: We intend to begin starting the distribution of the free coins for Founding members.
11/21/15 at 8 am central time....wallets at http://whycoin.info/....the distribution will be made at   ...https://www.reddit.com/r/whycoin/

Careful screening will take place.

MISSION STATEMENT

Develop and make available Reading, Writing, Arithmetic and Reasoning programs based upon the Principles established by "The Radix Endeavor" funded by The Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Gates Foundation. The use of computer-based gaming in education is not a new phenomenon. Many educators nostalgically remember green Apple II monitors displaying the games Lemonade Stand and Oregon Trail in the early 1980s. Technology in schools has evolved considerably since then, and gaming has become pervasive within all demographic subgroups. Gaming within education is currently a fragmented value proposition. Education games are inherently engaging to students because they present novel situations and are immersive. The authors argue that video games often do a better job of teaching than decontextualized, skill-and-drill instruction. Students can use educational games to engage in difficult tasks without embarrassment when they fail, and teachers can use educational games to build problem-solving skills and help students see the meaning in their lessons.


Statement from the founder:


It is my personal dream that one day a nine year old girl in deepest Africa can dial in on her cell phone and learn to read and write in her own language...and receive coins for her achievement. Thereby being able to purchase goods and services...and gain economic inclusion in her world.

This project will introduce AltCoins as rewards for achievement that are readily transferrable into fiat. Thereby, giving the student a financial incentive to move forward in the learning process.

WhyCoin was developed to reward students for "PROOF OF KNOWLEDGE", when they complete a course of study.  It will be a way of keeping score!

The coin is being distributed to people who have indicated their interest in the gamification of education and agree to participate in the goals of Why Fund Inc.

The initial distribution is up to five million coins based upon a strict criteria of quality participation on REDDIT and thereafter spontaneous awards for quality participation on https://www.reddit.com/r/whycoin/.

300 million coins were premined to establish a treasury of coins for future use.  275 million coins are in a cold storage treasury wallet...not staking.


Thank You,

Walter J. Ridge

Trusted Advisors

In the Bylaws of Why Fund Inc. there is a section setting up a group called "Trusted Advisors", they are allowed to only be identified by their user name (if they wish) and will be a nonvoting group. They may meet and formulate proposed actions by the fund and submit them for consideration.

They will be compensated with whycoins for their efforts.

They will be selected by the Moderators and only by the moderators. Their role is advisory.

The Moderators will have access to coins to dispense to those persons who they deem to have furthered the interests of the coin, or the fund.

A Brief History of Events:

I am Dusty Ridge the Founder of Why Fund Inc. (a 501 C 3 NonProfit Educational Institution) and WhyCoin an altcoin formed to be a tool to be used to further the goals of the Fund.

I spent the last year or so, trying to get established coins to move into the field of computerizing education.  I invested thousands of dollars in various coins and supported them vigorously.  However in each case I was used and abused, and lied to.  I finally reached the conclusion...it had to be done right.

I am 78 years old, and have a background in Ranching, Farming, Military, Police, Stockbroker, IBM Systems Analyst, Commercial Fishing, and Real Estate Developer.  I had the good fortune of dropping dead at 49, and being brought back to life.  That tends to focus ones mind!  I have been happily divorced for 46 years and have 4 children, three living.  I have A BS Degree from San Jose State and had the misfortune of studying law at Berkeley (I learned I didn't want to be a lawyer).  I formed a company in the beginning days of internet and modified the search engine (University of San Diego software) to use.  I owned 400 domains and averaged $30,000 a month in profit.  I sent business to a bunch of kids who were trying to do the same thing....YAHOO.I got wiped out of the business by them and Google...along with Alta Vista who was the king of the search engines at that time.  That was the "wild west" period of the internet.

The fund is presently controlled by the incorporators and we are searching for five directors with knowledge and a fire in their belly to take control!

The coin was launched from the Reddit site because it was not seeking to sell coins, and a friend helped me give a way coins.  He kept warning me we had scammers by the dozens, but I determined that even a scammer would keep his wallet open and establish the network.  I didn't realize we had one scammer who had dozens of user names and wormed his way into our confidence...he ultimately held 30 million of the 80 million coins distributed.  He grabbed the WhyCoin user name on every possible site on the internet and attempted to extort 50 million coins.  He was able to block us from making an ANN site, and even had us banned.  I am happy to report he has sold his coins to four GREAT people for the price of a carton of cigarettes!

The base theory of the fund and the coin, is gather a thousand like minded people together, and use "Crowd Knowledge" of a thousand brains to achieve the goals.  It appears to be working!

Please join with us in this noble enterprise!  We need your thinking and knowledge.

I like to idea behind this new coin.  Not a push for monetary value but adding value to learning, not only marks and scores, but a collectable and tradable coin.

Is this the basic idea?

Its was a ANN started by a WHY adopter, who has caused more grief for the coins startup than you
can Imagine.
Used the WHYcoin name everywhere, on every forum, and has tried to extort coins from the founder, etc etc etc
 Has more accounts and names than you can shake a stick at, Its been incredible to watch, to the point of
Just abandoning, this coin and starting over !

All the real chatter is at ##whycoin irc because he took over #whycoin too.

@ROBERTO

Thanks again for clearing this for us,

On future cases it could  be better than only  Dev can be able of do announcements but as there is the possibility that some enthusiast can ruin the image going ahead more than dev, Maybe this is a bit to reflect and reinforce the theory that the advertisements main  should only be done in only on an forum instead off two or three, Etc...... If something happens who will say the rest will be the dates announced first, So no one will do Pre-Anns.

This type of hijacking of accounts and coins will probably happen more often than not in the future.

As with any Announcement / New Coin / Reborn Coin / Forum / etc....   do your research before commiting resources.

I have done a fair bit of reasearch on the coin since a lot of little red flags were going off when doing the research.  I have to say that the developers and the Non-Profit behind this coin are very open, and easy to contact.  A big contrast from most of the activity on these forums.

Things have been moving very rapidly...

We have started exploring Flash Card system to put on our server, and set up a reward system with WhyCoin.

The coin is supposed to be listed this week on an exchange.

People have been buying coins from each other.

The IRC site is a hot bed of positive activity.

We have a twitter account and it is going to roll soon.

Well I will keep everyone up to date!

So how do I get some?



And as I understand it 80 million have been given away free and 99.9 Billion are in cold storage. IS that right?
If so I take it when an exchange takes the coin that 80 million will be up for trading.
When do you start dipping in to the coins in cold storage?


EDIT:
It seems to get coins you have to do all that social twittering and facebook  Nah, not for me Ill wait until their on an exchange.

49.8 billion in cold storage...to provide a treasury for the future.  We will use some for software...how much depends on the value placed upon them.  We don't expect more that 100 million in the wild in the foreseeable future.

Cold Wallet-Hot Wallet Accounting

We have 49858906677.68959987 WHY as of this time in the Why Fund Treasury Wallet. This wallet does not stake and is in the deep freeze for future use.

We have Three Hot Wallets on three different computers for near future needs...they contain a total of 62.9 million coins.

It is getting difficult to determine the exact amount in the wild...but it is just under 100 million.

The giveaways and promotional coins will end when the coin goes on an exchange. We will reward for achievement and participation in projects.


The budget plans for up to 250 million coins to be used over the coming year to purchase software...however this could be very much lower, depending on the value the market places on the coin and how much work is done by volunteers.

We have a group at this time testing Flash Card learning systems.  See:http://www.virtualsalt.com/learn10.html

We should be on an exchange within a few days.

They won't be distributed for many many years...the bulk of them are a treasury for rewarding students a few coins at a time.

We may have a hundred million in the wild at this moment and our budget calls for up to 250 million over the next year.

I think we are approaching 100 million out...the budget anticipates being as high as 250 million in a year.  But that is considerable dependent on value.

In any case the treasury is in cold storage not staking, for years of future use to reward students.

The staking is working fine...small holders always have a problem because they have to compete for blocks...but people with several thousand seem to getting their stake.  Some people in other coins have formed pools and increase there competing size...sort of like mining pools.

Hang in!

The staking is working fine...small holders always have a problem because they have to compete for blocks...but people with several thousand seem to getting their stake.  Some people in other coins have formed pools and increase there competing size...sort of like mining pools.

Hang in!

when you stake, the input is generally halved, you dont really see it.
and if you look at the explorer it's not obvious either (my pet peeve with inquidus based explorers)

basically, your wallet wants to make x amount of stakes in y amount of time, if you dont it makes your inputs smaller, so you end up with increasing amounts of inputs (staking potential) but they get smaller, so it takes longer for each one to stake.

i really dont know the math behind it, but .. it results in yr stakes getting smaller
unless you are a major staker. ideally i imagine whats' supposed to happen is you end up with an infinite amount of inputs all staking at an approved time apart.

which seems like a great idea.


edit.
if you go into yr wallet, and using coin control, go into send, then click on the "inputs" button. you can see each deposit against yr address.
i have deposited twice into my wallet, yet there are 16 inputs. this is because of the stake splitting. if i was not staking, there would be only two inputs (one for each deposit).

Still only two inputs...two deposits and two inputs.  My wallet has been encrypted, unlocked, and staking with 15K whycoin (non-stop) for a week, but it just isn't collecting stake for some reason.  Are big wallets getting everything?  Something doesn't seem right....keep watching and waiting???

i guess make sure you're in sync too.

after a fresh restart
go into debug console
help > debug > console
enter :
getpeerinfo

this lists other wallets in the network.
you can see amongst their info their relative "startingheight", just compare with your own to see if in sync
- if you did this 3 hours after you started your wallet, the "startingheight" would be from 3 hours ago as it gives the value from when you started connecting.

also
in the qt you can see a little lightning bolt, it gives you some minor info on your staking ability.

go into debug console
help > debug > console

enter :
getstakinginfo

mine gives
{
"enabled" : true,
"staking" : true,
"errors" : "",
"currentblocksize" : 1000,
"currentblocktx" : 0,
"pooledtx" : 0,
"difficulty" : 3374246.50853616,
"search-interval" : 16,
"weight" : 158362422575713,
"netstakeweight" : 4529885007033340,
"expectedtime" : 2574
}

the lightning bolt is based on teh "expectetime" result.
a value to look at here is "weight", it will get bigger over time as the inputs age and grow in weight.

tbh i'm not entirely sure wether this is the biggest input, or the total combined weights.
or for that matter whether expected time is based on a single input or combined weights,
even at their best they are still no more than guesstimates anyway

(after 10 minutes or so, my "expectedtime" had decreased by 38)

--


i just looked at the explorer.
and did a small amount of digging and came across a staking input of 2450 coins that staked in roughly 3 days.

so it certainly seems you should have staked by now.
do you mind posting yr address?

both of those addresses are empty. the coins have moved around a bit from them.
here are the tx where those address get emptied.

try going into debug console again and type :
listaddressgroupings

this should give you a run down of what balances against what address are in yr wallet.
i followed the coins a few tx, but have no idea how many addressess you might now own.
this is where some of them ended up. in groups of 100. all against different addresses
http://whyexplorer.infernopool.com/tx/032f0ce8d78363cc368ddd01576daadc92dae14b8a1e3fe4e37cd5cbfa533cff



it might be worth sending them all in one tx back to a single address.

--edit
oh i see those tx happened yesterday.
it is really much more likely for you to stake with a larger input than 100 coins. and you also dont need to send them to different addresses, you could use coincontrol and send them all to a single address


according to your getstakinginfo you should be staking at some point.

Yes, I just split my coin up a few hours ago.  I had all my coin in two addresses and they haven't been staking....it's been way too long so something was wrong.  I decided to try something new as an experiment....I read an article that described a procedure similar to what you see me doing on the chain....I will keep you posted as to the results of my experiment.

WhyCoin was discovered to contain a "staking exploit" and attempts to remove it were too late.  So...the coin was BURNED!  There will be a "do-over"...a complete redistribution with a strict criteria.  A new coin is being tested and when Why Fund Inc. receives a clean, functional coin...we will announce the distribution and it's criteria.  I have updated the original ANN to include the foregoing.  I appreciate your interest in our noble endeavor.

NO!  However the plan is to have a 300 million premine...with up to 5 million distributed to people who participate in the project.

I have updated the original ANN, and http://whycoin.info...and http://whyfund.info

I don't want a 1000 people with dollar signs flashing in their brain...I would rather have 100 people with a fire in their belly to get the project on track.  This coin may be a high dollar coin...but it will be because it honestly is worth it's value.  It will have meaning and purpose!

Nice!  I'm glad we didn't give up on the project.  The crypto currency community needs some positive projects to succeed so that the legitimacy of the overall crypto-experiment can be brought to the forefront of peoples minds, instead of being overshadowed by motivations of a deceitful few.  The value of the technology is overwhelming....we just need to highlight its virtues.  I downloaded the wallet and it's synced and ready to start moving the chain!

Exciting things happening!

First...I have distributed aprox 200,000 coins...to about 75 people!  I would like to find another 100 "smart" people who will support our cause.

Second:

I have in my hot little hands the source code and complete documentation for a Flash Card System! The system was developed over a 4 year period and won an award for technical excellence. I just purchased for the fund a full year on a server and will be implementing the system. WE will be starting off with 153 complete lessons! Quizlets gave me access to their source code for their thousands of flash card modules. Our system allows the creation of sets through simple software. If I were a programmer, I would automate the conversions. These lessons are in 5 different languages and have audio and pictures!

I am also adapting 100 children's learning games to pay coins and will be implementing them also. These games are for children 5 to 10. The games are in 10 or more languages with audio.

I would certainly like some help...but it will get done!

It seems like your heart is in the right place but I don't understand this project at all.

It is my personal dream that one day a nine year old girl in deepest Africa can dial in on her cell phone and learn to read and write in her own language...and receive coins for her achievement. Thereby being able to purchase goods and services...and gain economic inclusion in her world.

This project will introduce AltCoins as rewards for achievement that are readily transferrable into fiat. Thereby, giving the student a financial incentive to move forward in the learning process.

WhyCoin was developed to reward students for "PROOF OF KNOWLEDGE", when they complete a course of study.  It will be a way of keeping score!

The coin is being distributed to people who have indicated their interest in the gamification of education and agree to participate in the goals of Why Fund Inc.

The initial distribution is up to five million coins based upon a strict criteria of quality participation on REDDIT and thereafter spontaneous awards for quality participation on https://www.reddit.com/r/whycoin/.

300 million coins were premined to establish a treasury of coins for future use.  275 million coins are in a cold storage treasury wallet...not staking.

It seems like your heart is in the right place but I don't understand this project at all.

It is my personal dream that one day a nine year old girl in deepest Africa can dial in on her cell phone and learn to read and write in her own language...and receive coins for her achievement. Thereby being able to purchase goods and services...and gain economic inclusion in her world.

This project will introduce AltCoins as rewards for achievement that are readily transferrable into fiat. Thereby, giving the student a financial incentive to move forward in the learning process.

WhyCoin was developed to reward students for "PROOF OF KNOWLEDGE", when they complete a course of study.  It will be a way of keeping score!

The coin is being distributed to people who have indicated their interest in the gamification of education and agree to participate in the goals of Why Fund Inc.

The initial distribution is up to five million coins based upon a strict criteria of quality participation on REDDIT and thereafter spontaneous awards for quality participation on https://www.reddit.com/r/whycoin/.

300 million coins were premined to establish a treasury of coins for future use.  275 million coins are in a cold storage treasury wallet...not staking.

Who in there right mind is going to pay children to get an education?  Knowledge for it's own sake will do fuck all to help any 9 year old African girls.  The point to the 9 year old girl getting an education is so she can put her knowledge to use and contribute to society one day, and then be economically rewarded for said contribution.

No thanks.

Well, there is genius behind the idea. In many under-privileged areas around the world, children have a choice they're required to make between getting an education and going to work to bring home food to their families.  Often times they have to walk long distances in precarious conditions to the schooling tents, and they go without the nourishment they need to function at an optimally cognitive level.  By providing a platform whereby these children wont have to sacrifice food for an education, or vice versa, we could feed the poor while we build a foundation of educated children who may be able to support themselves someday.  There are people who need a little help in the world to accomplish some of the goals most of us take for granted.  It doesn't take a lot, either, as long as there are enough of us who are willing to provide a little.  The genius in this idea lies within the self-perpetuating value of the crypto-currency.  If there's a community behind the project willing to provide some of their cognitive abilities, buy support for the coin, and  selfless motivations, then the project could take on a life of it's own.

Exciting things happening!

First...I have distributed aprox 200,000 coins...to about 75 people!  I would like to find another 100 "smart" people who will support our cause.

Second:

I have in my hot little hands the source code and complete documentation for a Flash Card System! The system was developed over a 4 year period and won an award for technical excellence. I just purchased for the fund a full year on a server and will be implementing the system. WE will be starting off with 153 complete lessons! Quizlets gave me access to their source code for their thousands of flash card modules. Our system allows the creation of sets through simple software. If I were a programmer, I would automate the conversions. These lessons are in 5 different languages and have audio and pictures!

I am also adapting 100 children's learning games to pay coins and will be implementing them also. These games are for children 5 to 10. The games are in 10 or more languages with audio.

I would certainly like some help...but it will get done!

Great news Dusty!

I have a question: Have you thought about a mechanism by which we could discourage those who don't necessarily need the education from taking advantage of the system just to profit?  For example, me, a University educated American who just wants to turn a buck because I'm a greedy bastard and don't have anything else to do with my life?

I have thought about that...and let's say an English speaker does a course on learning English...he would get paid!  At least he had to go through the course!  We might figure something clever out, but in the beginning it will be a manual payout from the admin pages of the app.

We can spot them doing it over and over.

In the 5 - 10 learning sets the pay outs will be pretty small, so if someone wanted to play all the games they could.  But, interesting the 5 - 10 games are in 50 languages and are an easy way to learn the language!

PROOF OF KNOWLEDGE is here!

The founder's distribution is over!

We now have several hundred learning modules at http://whycoin.net

Coins will be awarded for anyone who get's an "A" on any course of study!

The awards will range from 500 to 5000 ... depending on the difficulty of the course.

I will generally accept your word of honor on your grade...I can check the admin log of the course.

Here's how it works...first open the "study set" and study the subject! Then open either the corresponding "true or false" or "multiple choice" test or if you want you can take both tests. Click "check answers" at the bottom and it will mark your test with those you missed and tell you the correct answer. You can take the tests over and over...until you get an "A".

This a quick and dirty modification of several hundred Quizlet modules...mainly I disabled everything that used their resources! It is a work in progress...so comment below with suggestions. Also tell me your course and the grade if you want to be rewarded!!!!!!

Public Health Proposal Update:

My proposal on going online with Public Health Courses is going well! We will offer the courses FREE...with a donation block for those who wish to do a tax exempt donation. There is an immediate requirement of 25,000 food establishments in Oklahoma starting Jan.1, 2016 having to have a FOOD SAFETY MANAGER on the premises during all hours of operation. WE offer that course, along with the Food Handler course (which is required for every person working at a food establishment). The Oklahoma Public Health Department estimates we will receive $200,000 in donations for this endeavor and we intend going NATIONWIDE!

CHECK IT OUT: HTTP://WHYFUND.ORG/

Also:  We offer over 200 courses and reward 500 to 5000 coins for an "A"

The old coin was burned....there was an exploit in the old code and it had to be discarded.  That's why there is a new wallet...it's a different coin with the same name and new distribution.  Read thru the thread for a better explanation....it's in there somewhere.

I will start talking to exchanges tomorrow and get this coin listed.  We need to go on a promotion binge!

We are a one of a kind coin...the first "Proof of Knowledge" coin!  I have a number of people who have completed courses and received thousands of coins.

The Food Establishment section is picking up steam and I added our Whycoin information to it.  27,000 food establishments in Oklahoma have just started discovering they have to have a Food Safety Manager on duty during business hours...we have the certification module!

Why Fund Inc. is well funded and receiving donations.  Now lets get this coin on the path to being a $1.00 coin!

Just Discovered the Potential of our Endeavor (Much to my Surprise)


I have achieved in two months with open source content and software what this man and many employees has been working on for years and many MILLIONS of dollars. We can make history here!!!!

Look at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duolingo

We can be bigger and better... and use the AltCoin theory to our advantage... ALL WE NEED IS PROMOTION! The method is developed!!!!!!

I can personally add EVERY LANGUAGE SPOKEN ON EARTH within a month! However with some help we could also add thousands of learning courses. We have a full year's server resource paid for...unlimited EVERYTHING!

Let's make WhyCoin a ten cent coin!

There is less than 300,000 WhyCoins out in the wild!!!  The FUND will not sell coins... With promotion of our potential the coin could make a RUN!  And, the only way to get the coin is to "LEARN" something or buy the coin on an exchange.

So far... there has never been a single person invest one penny in WhyCoin  (Except Me).

We need a person to be our TWITTER promoter!  I don't twit!

WE WILL HAVE EVERY SPOKEN LANGUAGE ON EARTH!

I intend doing this in 2 weeks!

Then I will get back to increasing our study sets for subject areas and adding several hundred learning games for children that are presented in 50 languages.

i only have 5000 conflicted WHY?? in my wallet????

try going into console and type
repairwallet

if that doesnt work, because the chain is still quite small you may as well just delete the blockchain in your datadir, then on restart it will reload the chain and get all transactions from the chain
that means pretty much deleting everything EXCEPT wallet.dat whycoin.conf peers.dat << wallet.dat holds all yr addresses and coins, whycoin.conf and peers.dat hold data re connecting to the network so they're handy to keep (although you probably don't have a whycoin.conf doesnt matter)

if you're in windows, in an explorer window, in the address bar type
%appdata%
then go into
roaming
then look for whycoin (or something similar).. this is the folder to delete the chain from


--
this suggests to me that should the code get any updates, adding -reindex might be useful :)

We Now Have EVERY Language Spoken on EARTH!

And KLINGON (just in case)! It took me 20 days of rather obsessive work to assemble and massage the Learning Modules. They are being uploaded at this time (8 gigs), when they are finished loading I will put the indexes in and they will be live. There are a few dying languages that did not have adequate study sets (400 words), so they were not included. These modules are not pretty, but they are functional...don't complain about my work unless you are prepared to fix it!

We now have THE ONLY place on the internet with every language spoken organized and available with a click! "EARN BY LEARNING!"

Yobits is jacking me around about listing the site...but they will list it. Please feel free to contact them and jack them around! I haven't heard back from the other exchnages.

I sent coins to everyone to celebrate our historic event!

I am looking into "How to become a twit!"  I have never used twitter and no one seems interested in volunteering...so I guess I will be a twit!

WhyCoin will be thriving long after most of the exchanges have crashed and burned!  WE have a purpose, We earn a living, We have a mission, WE are transparent, We are owned by a Corporation that will never die, We have a solid wallet that is a staking machine...and We have the possibility of UNIVERSAL ACCEPTANCE!

I started yesterday and have 40 followers already.  It's actually fun!  Follow me: WhyFund ‏@whyfund

Yobit is being non-responsive!  Going to apply to Polinex for listing.  Oh, by the way we have hundreds of people studying on our site...but few are asking for coins.  I don't think most of them know what an altcoin is!

I did a few but didn't wanna go thru the hassle of collecting.  Maybe they could use a tutorial on Whycoin in the main page....that might help.  I'm sure most of the visitors are just enjoying the free education....that's the sweetest part of the whole project!

I discovered an unlimited server has a limitation....250,000 files!  We are at 230,000 files now, so I bought another server account for a year.  I will move everything except the Languages...they will be bumping the limit themselves.  The next project is HOME SCHOOLING!  I will use the new server to load EVERY course between 1st grade and graduate school... also every profession that requires certification.

We need to be listed so students can trade their coins!  I'll get us listed...  or perhaps you folks can!  I don't own any coins!


EDIT: If we were a scam coin, we would be on every exchange without asking!!!  CRAZY isn't it!

I have been working at understanding TWITTER...it is actually quite interesting and rewarding.  Our reception has been very good...in a week we have over 50 followers!  Follow us at Twitter  WhyFund-WhyCoin@whyfund

I am targeting about 100 "Shakers and Movers" who have an interest in our endeavor and offering them promotional coins.  And, I will be working on getting our coin on exchanges this week.  

I have completed the Language site!  Now working on Home Schooling.  

I have purchased another Hosted Server (Windows), for a year.  The Linux server will only allow 250,000 files and our language site has almost reached that...the windows server will allow 500,000 files.  I'll build the Home Schooling and Professional Certification site on it.

We're not just a coin with a pretty wallet...we do things!

We have MEANING AND PURPOSE!

I applied today to Bleutrade, Polienix, and Bittrex for listing...however we are looking at the legal implications of buying our coins directly from students for CASH.  We have the potential for sizable income streams and could establish a floating fund for outstanding coins.  We wouldn't sell coins...only buy them!  Possible using a debit card approach, and possible in any currency.  I would be interested in a discussion on this subject.

I don't own any coins...and the fund isn't going to sell any coins!  So...the fund is interested in gaining value in the coin so students will have an incentive to LEARN!

We need a math genius to figure this out...

Say we have an stable income stream of $500 per month, and we put into a pot!

Say we have 300,000 coins out, and each month we valued and offered to buy the coins at the per coin value.

How much is that?

Say we continue to award coins at 100,000 per month...

would the value grow?

WE can add advertising to our 300,000 files at anytime we choose and generate a growing income stream.

Can we discuss this?

Post by: whycointeam on March 03, 2016, 06:51:35 PM
Advertising will be on all 300,000 files tomorrow!  The ad revenue will determine the coin value.

If we go on an exchange...then the fund value would always be an underlying base, and people could speculate on the future value.

Are you a promoter?  I will pay you in coins to take charge of WhyCoins promotion!  Make the coin valuable and convert them for CASH!

Advertising Revenue will be PUBLISHED on WhyCoin.Info

submitted just now by okie78Founder

We will publish the pool of money that will accumulate for redeeming WhyCoins. Full Transparency!

The pool will used to value the coin on a pro rata basis, and the details of method will be published also. At this time we have approximately 300,000 coins out and about 100 holders.

The sites are increasing in users every day (I found a huge credit balance from 10 years ago on GOOGLE I forgot about) so I am buying ads!

It is in everyone's interest to promote the sites so the revenue will increase...also please keep your wallets open as much as possible for the network. Also, to get the 10% compound interest.

We are the first coin to redeem for CASH!

Very few users are requesting coins for learning...it appears they have no idea what an altcoin is and no interest in finding out.

When the coin goes on an exchange it will be an interesting speculation coin!

I am still here....I have been checking in but don't know what I can do without an exchange to peg a value.  What is "shaddobanned?"

Don't give up yet....all we need is a way to incentivize the community.  Without an exchange to provide a means to valuate the token it is hard to bootstrap interest.  There are avenues, other than exchanges, that provide a way to peg a value to the token: Games, market places, social clubs....etc.

Why is it a problem for someone to ask a question?







I invested thousands of dollars in various coins and supported them vigorously.  However in each case I was used and abused, and lied to.  I finally reached the conclusion...it had to be done right.




You admit that crypto is full of liars and scammers, and you say every coin you bought is run by thieves.

You've explained why no one should trust any altcoin devs.  You're an altcoin dev. 
You know perfectly well why no one should take your word for anything.   

Since you say you want to do it right, don't act like there's a problem backing up the biggest of your many wild claims.

Here's an example of how people here ask questions of each other, and they either provide good answers or come off looking dishonest:

No harm checking things out...
I am a little testy because of recent events...got shaddowbanned by the KURDS for requesting to be added to their site as a resource.  I went 8 days posting on the reddit site with no response from anyone!  Then discovered by accident I was only talking to myself!  No warning, no appeal, never get back...so whycoin has no mod!  And never can have one!  So much for REDDIT!

However we might use another site...

Also, I have to pay $800 and 20 hours work to file for a determination letter from the IRS...however...GOOGLE will grant us $10,000 in free advertising when we get it!  I'm paying for the advertising right now.

I am considering disbursing almost all the coins to the present holders and the fund retaining enough to use to reward students.  Probably 20 million, and distributing the remainder 280 million aprox. to those holders that respond to a reddit personal message.  My guess is probably around 50 will respond, so they will become the super holders, with around 5 million apiece...so what will they do?  Or, should I ask WHAT WILL YOU DO?  I am betting that the coin will become listed and a real boomer!

Let's discuss this!

UPDATE: If we use another site on REDDIT...I may require every super holder to accept being a MOD...because the mod mail feature would give them a way of meeting and discussing.

UPDATE2:

Google Grant!

 Share your cause with the world.

Imagine what you could do with $10,000 USD of in-kind advertising every month from AdWords, an online advertising solution from Google. You could recruit more volunteers. Attract more donations. And share your story with audiences all over the globe. Itís all possible with Google Ad Grants.

Yobits ripped us off "Fireman" said he couldn't make the wallet work...I raised hell with him and he said he would try it again.  Since then, he will not respond!

WhyCoin paid in October to have it's coin listed, but asked Yobit to hold up until notified.  We did a complete re-do of the coin (Wallet).  We would like to have the coin listed now!  We have about 100 wallets out, and they are all working like champs!  No issues what so ever.

Thanks for the request. Our policy is to not comment on whether we will launch coins but we only add coins under active development with high community demand.
Thanks,

I was banned from chat at c-cex within 5 minutes after I applied for listing...I asked for permission to promote whycoin and told it was ok!  I was banned for 60,000 minutes!

received this...but nothing on listing!

TRUSTED ADVISORS WILL RECEIVE MILLIONS OF COINS! self.WhyFund

submitted 8 minutes ago by whycointeam - stickied post

Shortly I will send out invitations to every user name that has received WhyCoins to become a limited moderator of WhyFund. Those that accept will become TRUSTED ADVISORS and pledge to support the coin. They will have 1 week to accept.

I will then send approximately 250,000,000 coins in a pro rata distribution to the wallets of those who become Trusted Advisors.

I would be surprised if there are over 30 people!

Please comment!

Post by: whycointeam on March 23, 2016, 02:23:33 PM
IF YOU HAVE A WALLET, but do not have the user name on REDDIT!  You will miss out on the distribution!  I will accept a new user name with proof you have a wallet with a balance that is submitted to me at https://www.reddit.com/r/WhyFund/

Do this soon!

You will have to have a valid reddit user name to participate!

To those scammers I have checked some suspects and see no activity for months...or name is dead!  If you can remember what user name you used you might have a chance to participate...contact me with new name and proof of wallet and balance.

This will all take place at https://www.reddit.com/r/WhyFund/

I suggest you visit and comment, or post!


You would have no duties as a mod... I only ask that you work with the other Trusted Advisors to further the interests of the coin. The reason for the mod status is the use of mod mail for a place to meet and discuss what the plans for the coin were and how they could be implemented. It appears about 40 or 50 people will control 250 million coins. If you want the coin to have value it would be in your interest to participate.

The first TRUSTED ADVISORS are receiving coins for their use (they are free to do with them as they see fit).  They are listed as MODs at https://www.reddit.com/r/WhyFund/

They will have access to over 200 million coins to use in their efforts!

Just submitted another request to have Whycoin listed on Yobit....It's all paid for and we're just waiting for a response.  It takes two days.  And for the record....there was miscommunication and Yobit did not take our money....they refunded it via a Yobit Code which got intercepted and that lead to some confusion.  Let's keep our fingers crossed that it will get listed this time.

The dev of WHYCOIN went away from bitcointalk long time ago, last time logged in was in June 2016. There was a reddit thread once but I think it died together with this coin.

Honestly, I can't imagine a revival of this would work unless the missing coins are recovered or a new blockchain is created.
