2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [ANN] BETACOIN EXPLORER PLATFORM on: January 31, 2014, 02:59:54 PM
Happy to announce, probably, the most advanced blockchain explorer platform on the scene, that makes Betacoin even more transparent. Active development, new features every day.

About is the most advanced blockchain explorer platform in the cryptocurrency scene made especially for Betacoin. It has tons of features, that elevate it above competitors. gives unprecedented abilities to explore and research Betacoin network. Besides statistics and user friendly blockchain data viewing, users can interact with by referencing any Betacoin address, transaction and block, as well as discuss it. That makes Betacoin itself even more transarent and gives an ability to any user to provide open information about addresses, transactions and blocks related to him. is unique self-moderating community platform around Betacoin network. is not a financial service, it is an info portal with information about Betacoin network. It is open and free, provided on "AS IS" terms, with no warranties.

You have never search on any blockchain, like you can do it here on You can search on any blockchain data parameter and use amazing faceted search! And we are not talking about filters here, that is Search, try it, explore it.

It is hard to imagine that you will not find something with Search, but if you want to explore blockchain data in another way here you can use Filters!
You can filter blocks, transactions and addresses data.

Perhaps, that feature should be first on the list. Just imagine that users  can reference their addresses, transactions and blocks. You can do it on, that makes Betacoin itself even more transparent compared with any other cryptocoins.
What is reference?
Reference is a link that every user can make to any address, block or transaction. In general Reference should note a relationship between users and blocks, transactions and addresses. Althrough, is "self moderating" platform, and those references and affiliations can be verified only by community of users. itself do not verify references information.

Transaction comments

Betacoin have transaction comments in core. Comments are public and stored in blockchain. provides transaction comments viewer, as well as search on any transaction data, including tx-comments. Betacoin Transaction comments can be used in number of ways:

  • Comments itself, means some notes about transaction. That is the first thing that comes to mind, but Betacoin tx-comments provides further more significant options. E.G.

Address: BSYWMuhEHydTyFqimRC4mwe7AK879xLoB3
Tx-comment: text:donation
Ammount: 1 BET

  • Link! E.G. Linking invoices. Betacoin transaction comments are stored in blockchain and avaliable via JSON. Merchants can use transaction comments for invoice linking. Imagine the situation, when company have only 1 Betacoin Address for receiving Betacoin, and do not whant to use any external software to receive Betacoin besides native Betacoin client compiled from source.  That company can provide only 2 things - Betacoin address and Invoice with Company invoice link. E.G.

Address: BSYWMuhEHydTyFqimRC4mwe7AK879xLoB3
Tx-comment: text:Companyname Invoice №1  
Ammount: 1 BET

  • Transaction comments are avaliable via JSON, so you can use it for any internal application API. E.G.

Address: BSYWMuhEHydTyFqimRC4mwe7AK879xLoB3
Tx-comment: text:0.5 to %UsernameAccount1, 0.5 to %UsernameAccount2
Ammount: 1 BET

6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / BETACOIN [GIVEAWAY] on: November 20, 2013, 09:47:42 PM
Today is the 4th week since Betacoin  launch and here is the resume for it

As it is described here ( - difficulty retarget algorithm count before 16000 block was made with parameters to give every miner (even with CPU) to mine Betacoin on low difficulty and to find some blocks. That was made to repel an accusation of unfair launch, any premine or instamine. Again and to be clear - at least for 4 weeks since start there were lots of chances to feel any difficulty you want from 1 to 80000 because difficulty chart was parabolic, the launch was "long" and fair.
Here is the chart of difficulty chart for 20000 blocks, where you can see everything that is written above.

Betacoin network overcome this difficult part before 16000 block with dignity and honor, with hashrates even more than 1TH at peaks and about 400GH on average.

Now the first Giveaway is started. It is 10 BET per person.

Additional options:

Mention Betacoin in forums signature +10 BET
Mention Betacoin on cryptocurrency related websites +10 BET
Betacoin related topic with some news or ideas +10 BET
Betacoin services up to 10000 BET

Please do not spam.

  • Please post your address below to receive free 10 betacoins
  • Payments will go out in bulk
  • Post some info about additional options if you want to get extra betacoins

P.S. Betacoin services are in work and will be public in the end of the November.

The difficulty now is >71000, in the same time the average block time with that difficulty is 4,5 min (based on last 10 blocks) and 5,1 min (based on last 20 blocks), so total network is above 1TH.
