Bullish on BitCoins

No, I'm NOT taking the five minutes it takes to copy and paste a new coin together and say it will rule the world.

I'm just wondering if there's uses not yet addressed?

KarmaCoin

(Not the game purchasing stored value card)

The board (and Reddit) has "Karma", and I saw where people trade their Karma for coin via a conversion. I got to thinking about whether a plugin for board software could be created to award "coins" like "Karma" is now, but somehow the distributed portion of this breaks down.

For example, you have boards like NamePros.com (discussion about domain name speculation). The current value of an "NP$" (earned through posting, clicking links, etc.) is $0.014

Would a plugin for SMF or vBulletin (etc.) to either allow local "Karma" to be converted to BTC, or have the karma be a coin in and of itself that can be on exchanges?

SETICoin

I used to have SETI@Home on my PC for years. I never looked at what it actually is processing, but I know it did work and reported that work. Is there any way to piggyback a coin on a USEFUL distributed computing project, whether SETI or cancer research or some other "donate your time" project, where the POW for the project can somehow also be a POW for the blockchain?



I think the Karma-Bitcoin board plugin is a possibility (where bulletin board karma is already traded for fiat), a board-specific coin may be a bit complicated.

The SETICoin (or any project on this list http://volnet.utk.edu/p2p/res_main.html ) is an honest question about using mining as a means to serve a humanistic "real" use.

The @home and BOINC utilization has been done twice now that I am aware of.  Not quite sure how they are doing so far.

As for the giving points away on a site.  This is totally possible as well, but you would probably need to pre-mine the entire amount, or pre-mine half or something so you had enough coins to give away.  I think TAG coin might work in this way, but I am not positive.  It is a rewards coin.

Just wanted to note the idea of Steemit.com I basically laid out above...

I like redcoin, not sure that is the best one, but I liked concept. It is related to social networks, so I think it will have future.
