A reminder that Auroracoin does have its own forum at http://www.auroraspjall.is/

Most people I've talked to here are very aware of the "Icelandic example" of how to rid finance of corruption but jailing bankers won't do that and iceland hasn't achieved that yet. the only thing that will do that is if each individual strives to contract with crypto currency in your day to day transactions. I now buy my clothes and pay for coffee at my favorite cafe in bit coin. This is one of the best things you can do for aurora coin, approach a retailer that you shop at regularly and give them a wallet that you can send auros to when you buy something. But the biggest opportunity I have found here for auroracoin and general crypto is solar Power. This entire festival is powered by one guys solar rig. I've introduced him to auroracoin and pointed out to him that he can monetize his surplus by mining auroracoin from his solar rig. He has enough surplus solar to power a mini mining warehouse. I've handed out a hundred wallets so far and have each person in a mailing list.

This is awesome grass roots work. Keep it up!

Great idea for the solar power guy too.

Maybe even being part of it somehow.

This is one of the things that got me interested in AUR.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2009_Icelandic_financial_crisis_protests

These particular words help me believe that Auroracoin could fit in well......

"its impact should not be under-estimated. One important development in its wake, and an important emerging theme for further research, is a series of experiments with direct democracy and social media"


There are a lot of things to be sad about the crash but what is most inspiring is that people woke up!

People wanted to change the system and honest efforts were made to implement ideas like direct democracy. For example we elected a constitutional council via direct democratic elections and this council wrote a new constitution for Iceland.

The sad part is that the government that was elected after the crash, the two socialists parties in Iceland, didn't have the guts to implement the new constitution nor the direct democratic process for parliamentary elections.

Now on the other hand there is hope for ideas such as direct democracy, since the Pirate party in Iceland has had this on it's primary agenda.

NB. the Pirate party is a new political force in Iceland still recent pools show them with up to 35% of the vote. My interpretation of this huge change in the political landscape in Iceland is that people have had enough. They thought things would change after the crash but now after seeing the old political parties take power again they are willing to try something completely new and different.

Not that I know what the Pirate party leaders are thinking but I have a feeling that Crypto currencies can play a role in how they see the financial future of Iceland.

It occurs to me that in a country of 330,000 it wouldn't be very difficult for the average citizen to get involved in a political party and make an impact. Is anyone here who a member of any Icelandic political party?

Is this a garage sale site, or just an AUR buy/sell site?

It's with great pleasure that we can say that ISX which is the first cryptocurrency exchange in Iceland will be opened next Monday 14. December for those that have registered for the beta test. Smiley

Fantastic! This is a big day in the history of Auroracoin.

Hi guys

 I'm proud to announce that I will be taking Auroracoin to the 2015 Learning Man New years Eve Festival in South Africa. http://learningman.co.za/

350 people will camp together for 8 days and use an alternative currency called talents to create a shared knowledge economy and an eco village at the same time.

I will be promoting auroracoin with an auroracoin tent, a daily educational workshop and 350 paper wallets ready to be loaded with auroracoin.

Congrats to everyone on the Auroracoin team for making it this far you guys deserve a merry festive season and a happy new year in 2016.

Auros to the moon!



Adam, what do you know about the remittance industry between South Africa and Mozambique? I see from this article that remittance channel has the 2nd highest fees in the world at 22%: http://www.theguardian.com/global-development/2014/aug/18/global-remittance-industry-choking-billions-developing-world

hi ltex

my question was: "what kind of accomodation can the auroracoin foundation give to an international representation for this coin?"

I interpret your answer to this as none at all?

Do you make no room for international representation for auroracoin and if this is so will that stance ever change given that if you successfully circulate auros throughout the icelandic population the focus of project should grow to include natural foreign exchange that will occur bewteen icelanders and foregin entities?

Another way to look at it is to compare the auroracoin algorithm as the central bank of iceland. The CBOI makes provision for foreign exchange, surely those representing auroracoin should make provision for foreign exchange?

What do you mean by accommodation? Do you mean subsidy, or salary or some such? We are all volunteers here. If you want to build something for Auroracoin, just build it. If you have programming skills there are any number of things you can do.

Ask coinmarketcap to add Cryptopia to their market cap calculation for Auroracoin using this form:

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1IZf5cBivam_93zENT_arFFuvWDidHGjWxoTMVmFSoWg/viewform

Or go to coinmarketcap.com and scroll to the very bottom for the Request Form link.

We operate a node that allows older wallets to communicate with the newer wallets.  The newer wallets block connections to from the old wallet via the minimum protocol version.  The US West node still allows the connections, effectively bridging the old clients with the new ones.  It's necessary to not cause a fork between the two versions while we get everyone updated.

Bridge node isn't necessarily the technical term(not sure if their is one), but it was about the best phrase I could come up with.  I guess you could call it the transitional node too.

-Fuse

We want to get rid of the old wallets (so we can push notifications in the future when people need to update), we don't have the keys for the old wallets to do this. There will always be a few nodes that will never upgrade. We decided to restrict the connections between the old and new wallets to facilitate this and have a smoother chain fork in the future.

So this is a 'hostile takeover' of sorts?

No, this 'takeover' has the blessing of baldur who has pointed his auroracoin.org site to the new team's forum

I would say no except for the text he embedded in the genesis block about bank bailouts second round. Seems there may have been a political agenda from the beginning, given this technology is such a powerful tool for seizing power from government/banks/other tyrannical entities that enforce monopolies with threat of violence.

Sorry if I missed it earlier. It was too painful to read the entire thread.

But how do you intend to impose your social "justice" (really social equality - there's nothing just about it) if you plan to taking power away from government?

As far as I can see, the weapons of social justice warriors are the court system, the education system, and an assortment of tribunals, commissions and agencies.

Rather keep posts like this off the ANN, for a coin that is meant to be almost half a million in marketcap should not be asking this questions. I can understand a coin that is $20k in marketcap needing help. This is why the price has fallen overnight.



i'm sorry, are you asking for LESS communication? That would be a first for a crypto community.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] Auroracoin - A new chapter in the history of Iceland! on: May 18, 2015, 02:28:44 AM
A brief status update:

Code for the new wallets is more or less finished. Except for a character encoding problem with the version name. Some styling work also needs to be done.

The porting of Breadwallet for Auroracoin is also coming along nicely. Testing is underway and some graphics work being done there too.

Help wanted:

-QT code styling
-OSX compiling

If you can assist in either of these areas PM me.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] Auroracoin - A new chapter in the history of Iceland! on: May 16, 2015, 05:11:56 PM
the plan is to lobby government to adopt auroracoin, this is an obvious target for the foundation

Not a chance. What government would want the accountability and responsibility that goes with operating in a non-inflating currency environment?

16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] Auroracoin - A new chapter in the history of Iceland! on: May 01, 2015, 07:22:34 PM
Who is Baldur Odinsen? Tell me who he is and I walk away from this conversation and never return and wish you all the best. I don't know any Icelandic coin developers, most are from China,India,Netherlands and US. I think dev was not from Iceland and use fake Iceland name.

I found him, my mistake.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balder_%28comics%29

At this point in time, does it matter who he is though?  I can assure you that I personally know 5 members of the new team, and have been acquainted with the rest, and they are most certainly not Balduro.

If the coin is in new hands, and the premine was burned, does Balduro matter?  That's like trying to continue the hunt for satoshi.

-Fuse

It wouldn't matter if there wasn't a premine, there is a lot of issues surrounding the other 25% of the premine, he has a lot of explaining to do.

Please GTFO a few of us are holding a fair amount of coins and you fucking with our investment. 
I'm holding a ton myself but frankly these allegations don't bother me too much. Most people in Iceland haven't heard of bitcointalk, let alone this thread. Auroracoin will succeed or fail on the ground in Iceland regardless of what FUDers say here.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][AUR] Auroracoin - a cryptocurrency for Iceland on: April 25, 2015, 04:04:26 PM

question: where are you pulling the price from?
and: is displaying 2 decimal places on the EUR price really enough?




Now changed to 4 decimal places, thanks for the suggestion.

Price is coming from  https://www.cryptonator.com.  Cryptonator uses an average of the AUR/BTC market price from Cryptsy and Bter, which is then converted to AUR/USD using the BTC-e price, and then to other fiat currencies using the rates from http://www.sedlabanki.is and http://www.ecb.int.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][AUR] Auroracoin - a cryptocurrency for Iceland on: April 25, 2015, 04:03:01 PM

I registered but got some strange problems. Username apcoins. Also some translation issues on site (icelandic)

Thanks apcoins. If you could detail the strange problems on the support forum here (http://auroraspjall.is/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=60&p=319#p319) that would be helpful.

And I can definitely use help with translation. I paid someone I found at bland.is, but I didn't get everything done. Maybe you could shoot me a PM?
