1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [KOBO] Kobocoin - An African peer to peer payment/micropayment system on: May 15, 2019, 06:46:05 AM

 https://www.grantthornton.co.nz/press/press-releases-2019/cryptopia-limited-appoints-grant-thornton-as-liquidators/


 David Ruscoe and Russell Moore from Grant Thornton New Zealand were yesterday appointed liquidators of Cryptopia Limited, a New Zealand cryptocurrency exchange based in Christchurch.
The highly publicised hack of Cryptopia’s exchange in January 2019 had a severe impact on the company’s trade. Despite the efforts of management to reduce cost and return the business to profitability, it was decided the appointment of liquidators was in the best interests of customers, staff and other stakeholders.
The liquidators are focused on securing the assets for the benefit of all stakeholders. While this process and investigations take place, trading on the exchange is suspended

Never heard of this project, is it legit? What happened with the identity theft?

Kobocoin is a decentralised peer-to-peer digital currency and micro payment system. It was created by Felix Onyemechi Ugoji, a Nigerian entrepreneur and developer based in the UK.

 Thank you for the update Tribesman!.. I was actually moving some of my wallet coins to Coinomi when it got stuck. I already have some coins in Coinomi . The transaction speed in Coinomi is almost instantaneous. I am still keeping the bulk of my coins bought during the early days and staking, selling some only to provide liquidity
  To the lurkers, buy the lows .

Hi Tribesman,

  The wallet is stuck at block 1707968  .. When I try to send from the wallet.. a warning pops up:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Not Enough Available Coins: You're missing KOBO "_________   "   <------- amount to be sent here

 (KOBO "_____________________" waiting for confirmation  <-------- amount of balance here

 
Do you want to pay with all you have?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------



  No missing amount though because I checked the block explorer..

...."We are still involved with Bitsoko but KOBO will not be moving to the Ethereum blockchain. There were issues to do with speed (and also to do with ETH gas)+".....

I like the lighter color too.. New design but with a DNA of the soon to be old logo.. Psychologically, the lighter color is also more "cheerful" .
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [KOBO] Kobocoin - An African peer to peer payment/micropayment system on: February 10, 2018, 12:13:02 AM
My thoughts:

 Logo 1 is tricky. As a corporate logo, designwise, it is more sophisticated. Initially it confuses you, what is that shadow for?.. and then it hits you,  It's K and C .. and then it turns into an optical illusion because it shifts between K-C  and I-C.  You have to dig deep down and once it settles in  -----> Kobocoin = International/Internet Coin/Currency). I am not sure if that is what the designer was aiming for, but that is how I interpreted the logo.

 Logo 2.. it's simple and direct to point.. Kobocoin is a currency.. and then the image of a flying bird/plane swoops in,  it's fast. It doesn't hurt that it looks like a green and K version of the Bitcoin logo. Another point, when I asked my 6-year old daughter which logo she prefers, she pointed to Logo 2, because it looks like a money. If a 6-year old can get it .....
    
  If we are targetting for broader consumer adoption, I am voting for Logo 2

I'm posting this for the new and recent community members.

I believe this was the first  media coverage of Kobocoin, a year after the Feb 2015 launch of Kobocoin.

The African Bitcoin Ecosystem



Kobocoin (Payments)

Kobocoin is a London-based digital currency and payment system similar to bitcoin but with an African heritage. Kobocoin was launched by Nigerian developer and entrepreneur Felix Onyemechi Ugoji with the aim to facilitate remittances into Africa by delivering a fast and low-cost way of transferring money globally.


Bitsoko (Mobile Wallet)

Bitsoko is an Android mobile wallet that implements blockchain technology in a bid to both remove the cost of transferring money between two individuals and to increase access to payment services. BitSoko aims to integrate blockchain technology into current mobile money platforms in Africa and, thereby, allowing funds to be sent from the developed world through bitcoin to be received as mobile money.

Cryptopia is the best option for now... For the past few weeks, somebody or groups/trader(s)/investor(s) have been buying up Kobocoin to the point that it reached  0.00001 to 0.00002 BTC with volumes of 2 BTCs to 5 BTCs... (sweeping the floor in stock market parlance).. However,  the price usually returned to the base levels of 0.000006s to 0.0000070s after the buyups .

I was in this situation before.. My solution was to bite the bullet: sold all my Kobocoins in Yobit and moved my trading to Cryptopia

We  should post a warning here to all potential traders that they should avoid Yobit and trade instead at Cryptopia... This would put a downward pressure on Kobo's price @ Yobit but this would be negated by an upward move @ Cryptopia.. I am suggesting to Tribesman that the price being shown @ Kobocoin Twitter account should be those from Cryptopia.

We , as Kobocoin's trading/investing community, should get our act together now.  There is an emerging trend towards regional cryptocurrency, and Kobocoin has the first-mover advantage to take this role in Africa. Kobocoin is featured in the CryptoAfrica exchange despite the absence of PR campaign.  However , there are emerging rival African coins now like Nurucoin which might take the limelight away from Kobocoin..  Kobocoin, however, has the first-mover advantage, maturity (3 years),  the credibility/transparency of the dev, and real-world application with the co-development with Bitsoko (as funded by the Gates Foundation). Despite the online news, very few are aware of the connection with the Gates Foundation, which I think will send the speculators into frenzy once Kobocoin gets its highly-deserved broader recognition in the cryptocommunity.  The price is currently stabilizing at the 0.0000070s area, but I think it will break and stay above 0.00001 soon.

 Good luck!

glad to help.. you might also want to connect with https://twitter.com/xtiandela  .. I saw in one of his tweets that he was looking for an African cryptocurrency...Based on this 1M followers, I think he is one of the known African cryptocurrency influencers and might fit the role of Roger Ver of Kobocoin  Smiley

thank you for the update!!.. the guys from CryptoAfrica http://cryptoafrica.com/ can probably help in promoting Kobocoin... Kobocoin is featured on their main page together with the main cryptos..

I agree.. I noticed a spike in trading activity on Cryptopia in the last few days.. . Kobocoin's market cap ranges at around 1M-1.5M, with only 24M coins .. It is low considering it will be used in whole African region..  I think and firmly believe that it it will be soon discovered by crypto hedge funds looking for BTC alternatives. This coin will be 3 years old next year, showing its stability compared to other coins.
