Also consider this:

Is Apple going to want to co-brand with something like bitcoin or blackcoin? No it will refuse to allow that but something that energy efficient and trendy goes hand in hand with the target demographic that Apple markets to.

We are talking about basic commercial viability here. MINT has that image, the others simply do not.

Accordingly, MINT is going places.

How can anyone not love the name "Mint"? Green is beautiful. Trees are beautiful.

I love to gaze at my Mint wallet. The green, the minting, the profit, so nice. It gives me inner peace.

Everyone should experience "inner peace". Buy some Mint.

I didn't ask how it was funded, I said what's the difference in regard to
the buy pressure you posted about BC? Same as question 2, see answer.

I'm sure it was the same idea after seeing BC planned/setup one. To help
with buy pressure! Yep, I never said it was a bad idea, but an independent pool operator is going to buy at the best market price. So we don't have quite the same advantage.

And the other PoS coins I mentioned, many have a higher interest rate
than Mint! Uhh, which one?

So what's the reason people would jump from BC for Mint instead of
looking at other PoS coins? Answered many times, look up.

You were specific in stating BC to Mint, not other coins. So I'm curious
to know why you think it's either BC or Mint. BC is the only Mintclone still alive. It cannot be mined any longer, and there is no reason for it to have value. 74 million coins that are better than btc because....?? 


Aurora is on Vault of Satoshi , I think you were saying something about
that coin the other day too!  Roll Eyes Yep, I highly doubt Auracoin will be used by the population of Iceland. Still it was an original idea and time will tell. What's your point?




The aurora point, was the fact it's on VOS but you were also badmouthing
the coin!

It's a mint clone? really? billions of coins, high interest rate. Yep sure is a
clone. Or is ECC a better comparison? oh and look it's got a higher interest
rate too!

neilh, you should realize it's mainly me who trashes BC. The rest of the community mainly focuses on Mint development.

So even though you didn't direct your question of "why trash blackcoin" at me I will answer:

Blackcoin came out 10 days after Mintcoin with a 10 day distribution. A complete copy cat that only had one way to ride the success of Mintcoin wave: Instamine the coin in 10 days. They claim to be original because of this different distribution method. They also differentiate themselves by paying a measly 1% interest on their instamined coin.

Blackcoin then came up with a good idea. The BC multipool. Again, not an original idea as we have seen multipools selling alts for BTC for years now.

It's a good idea for a coin with a small marketcap, because even a small 2 BTC buy at a price above current market price can artificially increase the price by a 300-500 satoshi margin. This is a great way to trick gullible investors into buying high. Then they get dumped on by the people who know what's happening. Then the process repeats. What is happening now is that only true believers are holding the coin. No one is buying anymore, and so the volume is dying as manipulators set their sights elsewhere.

The truth about blackcoin is that it holds no real value. It's literally as if someone put 74 million coins on the market and then said "Buy our wonderful coin, it's better than bitcoin!"

That evocative image is a superficial feature really, but at the same time it is invaluable in creating brand consciousness. This marketability and image is a critical component to mass adoption that most other coins don't seem to take into consideration at.

Add to that the revolutionary "green" mining process that anyone with a regular device can participate in and it is easy to see why not only is the MINT community strong, but it is easy for that community to grow in a way not available to other coin schemes.

Just had another thought regarding marketing.

When the MINT Fund comes online we should do a press release to announce it.

What do you guys think?

I'll agree you are the main person, but there are others that do
it, or at least post little snide remarks regularly.


The fact BC is a low interest rate is a plus, and also the total PoW
coins millions, not billions is also a plus for me.

I actually had Mint when it was at 4 sat. Made a very nice profit
and moved to BC. I still like to read this thread to see how Mint is
progressing. So I see your posts and others all time, but for the
most part ignore it.


ECC is much more similar to Mint, but that hasn't had the price
increase like BC has it, which I personally think is why you have
a problem with BC!  Roll Eyes

Hey. How come Mintcoin is doing so well right now?

I am curious about that too. Bitcoin was falling like a stone yesterday but mint was actually rising at the same time. It looks like mint was a better bet than bitcoin yesterday and it's the last thing I expected.
The reality is more complex (IMHO):
  • Short-term: Pump. Second, there was a pump on mintcoin, yesterday. Some people, at least on the French forum, believe it is still occuring. I made my best to inform them that this is not the case, that the current price is the normal price, but the only thing I can say is that for some people, the price is inflated => they are ready to dump. That's why it is very important to not rest on our laurels and continue to propagate mintcoins ideals and actions. Dump occurs when we rest on our laurels (I am not saying that not resting on our laurels will prevent a dump, but at least it will be much less damaging).

Please keep in mind this is just my point of view as a human being. This is not an official statement from the team.

It all sounds really positive and I believe mint has a great future I only wonder about that what you said above marked in bold about the current price being the normal price. You're very active in the mint community, do you really believe around 20 satoshi is the normal price, what about increase in value?

The PoS feature of mint is a real benefit above the cost and power intensive bitcoin protocol. I would love to see mintcoin being mentioned as a strong alternative to bitcoin.

You could go to the correct thread if you would like to talk about a coin other than MINT.

That last post was completely off-topic.

These guys see their coin at 5000 sat and feel it's worth more. The marketcaps are near identical at the moment.

I've never mentioned that coin specifically so I don't know what you are saying that in reference to.

My concern is how is MINT going to compete with BTC, not a mintclone.

In that regard I have to say that the ability to mine on a regular computer, and maybe an android device before too long, is the main selling point.

You can do it on a laptop or mini device and it doesn't waste a ton of energy. Perfect for the "Whole Foods" crowd.

That is a reasonable target demographic if you are going for mass adoption.

Anyhoo, moving on: I think these are excellent points.

You are so articulate. Thankyou.

I was, in around about way, trying to say that ... lol.  And I did not want to point fingers at coins with depressing names.

Regarding marketing and mass mint adoption. I believe one of the best ways to promote mint is buy products with mint.

Even a small purchase like 500 mint or $2 makes a difference.

See the first post for mint merchants.

The more I read this thread, the more I like the coin. THAT tells me it has a great community, or FANTASTIC marketing. Either way, a good foundational start to a good investment.

The name is great, the color scheme and logo is great and is very flexible, the dev team communicates and is actively promoting the coin in the right places...I see a lot of potential here for long term growth, and possible unforeseen short-term explosive growth depending on luck and marketing windfalls.

Glad I invested a good chunk of my total portfolio back at 14-16! Might buy even more if it goes back to the basement again. This coin, and CleanWaterCoin are my two current favorites for growth potential and sustainability (if CleanWaterCoin chooses a more efficient mining method in the near future, which the dev team is currently looking in to).
