@Eggert sæll/hi

The only scham connected to the distribution that I know of is also explained by Baldur him self on reddit http://www.reddit.com/r/auroracoin/comments/33iogi/aurburnaurburnaurburnaurburn7es4rf_balduro_a_man/. What happened was that someone created a fake Facebook game to get icelandic social id and facebook authentification on the airdrop and schamed out coins from the airdrop.

Nb. Baldur admits to this and this is the reason Facebook claims were stopped.

I also know a lot of highschool kids that gathered hundreds of claims for a fee which were delivered to the same address, i.e. someone bought the coins from them. This is not a scham but a trade.

Some offered to buy coins on Facebook groups and I know people who claimed and sold their coins to those traders, often many claims at a time, i.e. someone bought the coins from them. This is not a scham but a trade.

The airdrop was not perfect but I think Baldur distributed the coins as fairly as possible. Just think about how the icelandic krona is distributed...

QUOTE:



"My name is Pétur Árnason and I'm one of the founders of the Auroracoin foundation and am a part of the new dev team.

I want to state this now so we are all clear on this.

We are not trying to hype the coin nor get any of you here to buy the coin. We are taking over this project because we believe in it's potential here in Iceland and we will be working towards that goal not to get a few traders on BCT to buy a few coins. So I think I can't make it more plan than this. Do not buy the coin if you are not from Iceland. If you are however and you have your doubt's then you can send me a PM here or at auroraspjall.is and I would be more than willing to meet you face to face to discuss what we are doing here and why.

If you are however interested in this project and it's potential, then feel free to join us in this experiment and help us get this coin adopted by the Icelandic public. We are a determined group that fully understand that this project will take some years of dedication before it can be called a success and all of us are ready to take on that work.

If you are asking why then it's because of Auroracoins huge distribution in Iceland. I think most here don't realise what that means. This coin has more chance of getting public adoption in the next years than any coin around, including Bitcoin. That is for two reasons and for those who are interested, I'll explain.

First is Iceland.
Iceland has all the perfect conditions to adopt a cryptocurrency.
We had a crash here in 2008 that is the result of the flawed monetary system we have today and people here are unhappy with this system and are still angry at the system.
People here know that the króna is a zombie currency that has been inflated many times beyond it's capacity and they know it will fail again.
Iceland has capital control in place which greatly limits the foreign currency that the public can get.
We have a very high rate of technology adoption in Iceland and one of the highest Internet usage per capita in the world.

The second being the success of the first airdrop stage.
There were claims for over 10% of the nation and there are still over 20.000 of these that are still holding their original claims. No matter how you put it the exposure Auroracoin got in Iceland at that time is unparallelled anywhere in the world. In no other country in the world does as high percentage of the public been exposed to a cryptocurrency and nowhere else do more people own a cryptocurrency. The amount of claims does not even come close to showing the the amount of exposure the coin got here at this time. This is what makes Auroracoin special and is far more valuable than any market cap can tell you.

What this all means is that Iceland is the perfect environment to get people to adopt a cryptocurrency. If we succeed in that all of the crypto community will benefit from it as Auroracoin would hit all the possible obstacles on the way, be it social, legal or technical. It would demonstrate all the benefits and disadvantage of cryptocurrency adoption which other coins can learn from. Auroracoins adoption in Iceland would be a small scale simulation of how adoption would likely play out in larger economy's and it would benefit our crypto community as a whole.

This is why we dedicate ourselves to this project. Our goal is general adoption of cryptocurrencies in general, not just Auroracoins.

So just to be clear on this. If you are not from Iceland, do not buy the coin. There is a plethora of other coins out there much better for general trading."


I love this.

Somehow i believe, after bitcoin and together with a hand full of altcoins is this a one of the important and most interesting cryptocurrency projects ever.

Even if we assume Balduro laundered some of the airdrop coins for himself, aren't the ones in dispute about 40k in total? That is .66% of the coin supply as it stands today and is neglible in the grand scheme of things.

I just want to post this here because there are people here claiming otherwise.

Auroracoin did get a lot of publicity in Iceland. To proof my case I just want to post a few links that I managed to gather and post here in less than 20 minutes so you can be certain this only gives you a glimpse of the exposure that Auroracoin got here in Iceland.

mbl.is - the biggest news site in Iceland
http://www.mbl.is/frettir/search/?period=0&category=&sort=1&qs=auroracoin&submit=Leita

https://www.google.com/search?q=auroracoin+site:bland.is%2Fmessageboard#q=auroracoin+site:bland.is&start=0

There are of course many other Facebook groups. If you check the members list on these groups you can see these are mostly Icelandic people.

There can be said many things about Auroracoin but saying that it didn't get a lot of exposure in Iceland is not one of them.

It does not matter that the dev stole some coin, it been said many time by others that Icelanders don't know about btctalk. I won't be much on for next month to follow this thread but I advise everyone not to sell coins cheap. I have built up close to 1% of the total supply just by trading and will sell in small quantity when time is right not to crash market. Good luck to team if it fails I don't care if it succeeds I make some extra money and become rich off teams hard work. bye for now.

strange transactions:


(click for link to block if image broken, imgur troubles?)


there are loads of these happening in recent blocks (roughly 118455 until now).

any ideas what these are?

looks like someone is collecting 0.0001 AUR repeatedly from a faucet or something.

seems funds are collected here: https://chainz.cryptoid.info/aur/address.dws?AKuy6EURgcwwEQc1c8oMiZC78yhQQpboqP.htm

Looks like a dust collection script.

Not sure why one would have so much dust in a single address,but it could be possible.

Mate if this coin goes to 100 usd can I come Polish your ferrari's in China. I have under 10k coins which I hope to pocket for some serious amount of btc when the people start  buying.

When you guys expect to share a gameplan for Aurorad Foundation ?

I already shared an idea i think is worth discussing - being targetting some merchands selling ''exportable'' stuff, so foreigners would be able to spend AUR to get goods in Iceland. A good opportinity imo. Iceland merchands would bring back AUR home, while sharing Icelandic culture - traditional stuff, etc (clothes, artwork, music, books). So getting officials involved would not be that difficult - everybody would win. Good for image, good for Aur, good for businesses. 

I think that it would be a good starting point (after few conferences, booklets, mailers, etc).

Months ago I saw something similar in the cryptsy orderbook. I thought it would be some kind of trading script.

Sure - but wanted to see first if this was something making sense to others here. I, for sure, would spend AUR in iceland with pleasure !   ''Export goods, import AUR!''

someone put up a 35kAUR ask wall today...

someone else might have figured such an amount was hard to get without too much slippage and took the offer:

Ryan Pumpers pick for the week incoming. This coin could be the greatest pump and dump coin to exist if things go well or someone with loads of AUR and BTC to balance the trades. It's going to take a mammoth effort to keep this coin stable.
