Peercoin Weekly Newsletter - Issue 5
November 28th

Introduction

Thank you for joining us once again for this issue of the Peercoin Weekly Newsletter.  As everyone is well aware, this week in crypto has been significant in terms of mainstream exposure. So much to talk about, let's get started.


Charity Campaign

One of the cornerstones of the Peercoin community is social responsibility. Please take a minute to help us support our upcoming Peercoin charity drive led by Okerlo:

http://www.peercointalk.org/index.php?topic=1152.msg9591#msg9591


Responsible Investing

As Sunny King said in our New York Times article, "We are not greedy. We think crypto-currency also needs moral character behind it.”

For many of you who are experiencing the fun of owning Peercoin for the first time, there will be a temptation to invest large sums of money with the expectation that the value can only go up. This is a friendly reminder that cryptocurrency is highly speculative in nature, and it will wildly fluctuate in the coming months. Please do not purchase more cryptocurrency than you can afford to lose. Peercoin prides itself on having a friendly, supportive community, and we feel it is irresponsible to not warn new Peercoin holders of the risks inherent in market speculation. Have fun Smiley


Jays Jerky and Goodies


We are proud to join Bitcoin and Litecoin as an official payment option for Jays Jerky and Goodies. Look for pictures and giveaways in the next newsletter.

Strategic Planning

The Peercoin community is grateful for all the participation we've seen in the past 2 months. Now that we've crossed the 100 volunpeer mark, it's time to take a look at all the different projects happening within the community, get feedback and start putting together a strategic plan for the next 30/60/90/180 days.

If you're interested in watching our progress or feel like getting your hands dirty yourself, please follow us here:

http://www.peercointalk.org/index.php?topic=1093.0


Additional Developer Resources

Peercoin is always looking for additional talented developer resources. If you are interested in joining us in Peercoin development, please PM PeercoinEnthusiast immediately. Take a peek at the strategic planning link above, there's plenty of interesting projects to keep all developers engaged.


Peerbet - Peercoin

We are proud to announce that Peercoin is now an accepted option for Bit777's Peerbet.org!!

"Peerbet.org - the first online gambling platform with zero house edge and without negative profit expected value for the players! It is really free: players compete against each other, not against the gambling site and there are no hidden costs or commissions. 100% of the revenue comes through ads.

In any casino or online gambling site like Just-Dice with non-zero house edge players will always lose playing long term, but in the truely zero-sum game (i.e. where no house edge or any other commission fees applied) players will NOT lose anything playing infinite long."

For more information about the announcement, please head on over to:

http://www.peercointalk.org/index.php?topic=1123.msg9526#msg9526

Have fun and please wager responsibly.


Website

If you haven't taken a look at the website lately, we recommend you take a look at the progress by Super3:

In case you missed the great article in the NYT:

http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2013/11/24/in-bitcoins-orbit-rival-virtual-currencies-vie-for-acceptance/?_r=0

There's been a number of mainstream interview requests trickling into Peercoin. Expect to see quite a bit more mainstream coverage in the coming weeks.

83 million? That's higher than Litecoin was a couple of weeks ago. I checked a couple days ago and it was somewhere around 60.

Exciting times for PPC.

Very nice logo/banner, I think it's the best-looking of all cryptos out there.

I've been running Reddit ad and Peercoin giveaway over at /r/Peercoin as well as here on Bitcointalk and things have been going great Smiley I've taken that opportunity to introduce newcomers to Proof-of-Stake and it has seemingly blown lots of peoples' minds.

Special thanks to /u/Bagog- and /u/0nederfoo1 for their PPC donations.

Some stats:

* $362.95 (210 tips) in PPC given out to date (details)
* Today r/Peercoin surpassed number of r/PPCoin (old subreddit) subscribers
* Peercoin market cap reached $166M or $8/coin as of now (details)

The giveaway thread is here, if anyone's interested in contributing their time or coins Smiley

It is a good news that BTC-E just added PPC/USD pair. I will have more options on trading with USD. :-)

I really love PPC and XPM because of the community and also the founder Sunny King who really cares about the community and focus on the values of the coins that will provide to the marketplace (In term of energy efficient, sustainability for long term)

A great community will determine the future value of the coins and I am glad that I am part of the this community and I can't wait to see it grows over time. We will definitely break records month after month. :-)

The Peercoin community is outstanding. Newcomers that poke their heads in to www.peercointalk.org are pleasantly surprised to see the depth of help resources available for getting started (both in terms of guides, and staff members to answer questions).

Combined with their security & energy-efficiency, I see big things in Peercoin's future.

Now that BTC-E added PPC/USD others like GOX will follow and the Peercoin can easily get at LTC or even BTC niveau.
