About TAG

Tagcoin was created originally in November 2013 as a better way for merchants to offer rewards to customers for purchases or other actions, but the stable TAG Blockchain is also now used in applications where the distributed ledger can provide proof and trust, and a way to mine TAG currency for use within the multi asset TAG Blockchain in use at Tagcash.com and Proofcore.com, which is running on multichain open source software

Launched in November 2013, there was no premine - Tagcash and other merchants trade Tagcoin via exchanges or customers.

Tagcoin is mined and was traded mostly in China (btc38.com) untill the closure of Exchanges. It is still traded privately and we have a core of dedicated CHinese investors and traders.

Technical Specifications

We designed TagCoin with the following objectives in mind:

A little bit about the parameters we've chosen. 4 minutes between blocks is a happy medium between speed and sustainability. Faster coins will run into many problems down the line, the least of which is blockchain bloat. As we intend to support TagCoin for many years to come, these are big issues.

Subsidy reduction has been rethought. Halving every X amount of blocks, like Bitcoin, is very unnatural and "shocks" the market every halving. Accordingly, we've decided to introduce a more natural reduction formula for Tagcoin. The subsidy will reduce by 1% every 3 months for the life of the coin. Additionally, there is a minimum block reward of 3 set in place, as to always encourage mining. Sustaining mining solely on fees is problematic; Bitcoin will have to deal with this somewhere down the line, but Tagcoin will not. Less than 100 million coins will be generated in the first 30 years before this minimum block reward has been reached.

PoW/PoS hybrid
POS Interest Paid per year: 5%
Algorithm: Scrypt
Coins per block: 24.8
PoW Subsidy reduction: 1% every 3 months, minimum reward of 3 coins
Time between blocks: 4 minutes
Retarget: The same algorithm that PPCoin uses; exponential easing towards the target spacing time.

Network Port: 8623
RPC Port: 18334

Currently there are just over 6 million coins in circulation and a price of about 8 US cents. This is expected to rise with the launch and ICO of the new TAG Blockchain, as there will be a 1 for 1 swap for new TAG currency for the next 10 years. (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2218399.msg22383126#msg22383126). Approximately 130,000 coins are mined per month

I think this is the only [ANN] that has not included these details. Sounds like a carbon-copy coin. All of the features listed don't actually require a new coin, but could be built upon existing coin.
"Fairness - Difficulty will start out at a reasonable value so no one can get an unfair advantage" i.e. Pre-mined a bunch before launch?

This might be totally legit, but I'll take tech specs over a fancy bio anyday.

If you have reviewed the site http://tagbond.com/ you could see additional information, including a full staff.

He is trying to build a complete business with the coin as a supplement and a way to IMO access funding thru other digital currencies.  I like how they are including RFID along with QR Codes as things are headed sensor based.  This interests me a lot, and not just as a alt coin but as a business.


Which is why I find it quite interesting. Also that you have a coin that is developed by a company which means you have a multiple developers to fix problems that seems to come up with new coins. Also creates a point of centralization for the coin. If a company controls all the major products, services, and exchanges for a coin, are they going to provide coin support for other people with competing products and services they may or may not be better. Also allows for easy price fixing and premining.

More than 2 days pre-announcement it's nice!  Smiley

If you have problems with TagCoin network discovery add node 168.63.12.227 to params of the wallet, example:
Code:
tagcoin-qt.exe -addnode=168.63.12.227
or to tagcoin.conf, example:

Code:
addnode=168.63.12.227

@Eli0t @super3 - the full specs will be released on Sunday, not before. All I can say is that it will be a fair coin, with a new twist. We are not going to try and control it, but we do want some branding on it, which is the main reason for doing it.

We don't need to fund further growth using the coin itself, but it is part of the overall plan for growing awareness of the TAG brand. We would like the coin to be used as a stable currency and not just for speculation, we have no plans to manipulate pricing or to control it. It is in our interest to make it grow but also to keep it stable. Anyone who knows me, knows that I don't do these things for the money, I do it to change things that I think could be done better. If they make a little profit as well, that just helps me create more.

Within Tagcash we will be adding only Bitcoin and TagCoin as crypto wallets

My original idea at start in February this year was to create a centralized rewards currency that could be shared and used everywhere, but that had several disadvantages - that was before I learned more about Crypto, and this seems to fit the bill much better. I could have used an existing currency, but nothing really suited what we needed, hence the creation of TagCoin.

It is a grand experiment, but our business model does not depend on it. The Tagcash model is based on Google Adsense and Groupon, and to make that work we need fluid use of currencies, with no friction, no credit cards no chargebacks etc. A business creates a marketing "tagvert" (coupon, loyalty card, tickets, shopping cart etc), which is free and then has an option to reward anyone for sharing that on facebook, blog sites, via email, in person etc, but ONLY when that is redeemed at the merchant. So it is in effect an affiliate system that is much fairer than paying for clicks. A business only pays on results, and we take 30% of that referral income. That's the revenue model.

For example, vtc.com creates discount coupons, and gives out Tagcash Credits when they are shared on Facebook and when someone buys a subscription with VTC. Tagcash then pay out these rewards using Tagcoin. It's a better system that Google adwords, at least for VTC

This looks like a really interesting coin/business model that has been really well thought out. BUT, I can't understand why the method of coin generation can not be revealed before the launch?  The coin launches 4am Monday my local time and I'll be really annoyed if I set the alarm only to find out that I need an ASIC to mine it...   Shocked

As an aside, if the coin/business model is as successful as you hope, there might be a certain watch company that might claim intellectual rights to the name Tag??
