I've noticed that the max coin supply (of 20 or 30 million coins) was never properly set, not even in Britcoin 1, so I plan to release a fix for that.

I can easily cap it at 30 million and have already written code to do that.

Does anyone have any thoughts about a "tail emission" to keep a smaller amount of coins being made for much longer after the 30 million limit is reached?  What form should such a tail emission take?  0.5% annual interest rate?  0.05%?

Monero has a tail emission, as does Dogecoin.  The reason tail emissions may be good is because:

- They encourage people to keep staking even after the main emission.  (Without a tail emission, stakers only get the transaction fees of transactions they include in the blocks they create.  But what happens if there are hours without any transactions?  One might give up and stake a different coin instead.)
- Perhaps they help to restrict transaction fee inflation.  ("I'm already getting money from staking so I guess I don't need to increase my fees  Smiley" )  Cash is one of the payment methods that Britcoin will compete with, which presently has zero fees (until cash machine operators decide to increase the fees).
- They can compensate for lost supply.  Some Britcoins are lost every year, on purpose or by accident.

It's going to take a long time before 30m available supply is reached.  So with that in mind I'm going to say 0.05%, unless you can think of a reason why that's too low/high Cheesy



Agreed. Nice work! We just need a better exchange now to possibly grab more attention Roll Eyes

Thanks Peter Cheesy

I'm hoping to get BRIT trading on livecoin.net soon, the listing fee is 2 BTC so I have to justify the cost before moving forward.  Hopefully if things go to plan it will be listed sometime next week, then I will get BRIT/GBP trading on Cryptomate.co.uk.  This will hopefully give Britcoin a bit more accessibility, since we'll have GBP/EUR/BTC deposit options, rather than just c-cex. Smiley

Sounds like a good plan. Is there a particular reason to get Brit listed on livecoin.net but not others?

I thought livecoin.net because they have different fiat deposit options - most importantly EUR, which would allow people to send SEPA deposits.

But last night I checked out what it takes to deposit EUR via SEPA and they really make it ridiculously difficult, they ask you for links to forum profiles and screen shots of trades on other exchanges etc. (https://ctrlv.cz/shots/2017/03/03/El5X.png)

So this is not really a viable option for people new to Britcoin and crypto in general, the reason I want an exchange that allows fiat deposits (GBP or EUR) is because when I tell people they need to buy Bitcoin to buy Britcoin it confuses them. Cheesy

I've been reaching out to different exchanges all week, we'll see what comes of it.  Do you have any in mind? Smiley

Great suggestion but sadly I think Changelly works in the same way shapeshift.io does, they fill orders directly from the sell order books on large exchanges such as Poloniex or Bittrex.  Without being on one of these two exchanges I don't think it can work, we'll get there one day though.

Once we do manage to get on an exchange with SEPA deposits I will get BRIT listed on Cryptomate.co.uk and see if the guys from Bitty and BitBargain will do so as well.  This would mean easy access for UK users, using UK instant bank transfer to directly purchase BRIT. Smiley

As promised the big day is here and the new official website is up and running;

Britcoin.com

There will be further development and new features added in the coming months, so any ideas on what you'd like to see would be much appreciated.

Thanks to everyone who helped (too many to list) getting the domain and website online, it has taken awhile but I think it was worth it..  Time will tell Smiley

All the best and go BRIT! Cheesy
Well done Will, it's nice to see Brit progressing, it wasn't that long ago that this coin was dead, now I see a bright future ahead.

Next stop Live coin.

There are only few coins found success  after failure. I hope BRIT will bounce back stronger than ever.

Yea there was a time when even I thought Britcoin was dead.  I think the main problem coins run in to is there's only so much time and work people are willing to for free, luckily for us we've secured development funding that's enabling us to move forward with things.

The future is bright for Brit, really looking forward to the coming months Smiley

Hmm,  that does change things.

Trex still a viable option? It will be interesting to see if they still have some Brit in their old wallet.

I was just thinking those bigger exchanges like Poloniex or Bittrex. Not sure what exchange allows easy fiat deposits tho

Yea Bittrex is still an option, although they only allow USD deposits from US customers if I remember correctly.  Not sure about Polo, I'm gonna assume they'll want to see some decent volume on other exchanges first.  Mo will prolly know the answer to that, as Piggy is traded on Polo.

I'm still waiting to hear back from some exchanges I emailed last week, if nothing comes of it I think Bittrex might be our best choice. Smiley

We're hoping to have BRIT trading on Cryptomate.co.uk by the end of the week, if not early next week.

This means users can buy and sell via instant bank transfer within the UK! Smiley
