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).

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!"

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

Neilh I appreciate you trying to bridge between the BC and MINT communities. I have done the same before in the past over on the BC forum, and well, it didn't go so well to say the least (I've been called a MINT f*ggot, a troll, etc) ... I have given up. You should look through the history. The amount of hostility between the two communities is rather unfortunate. But, I don't think there is any way to change this. Some people over there do not like MINT, some people over here do not like BC- this does not reflect upon the entirety on the communities, though. I still believe in working together or at least in peaceful co-existence. The bashing of other coins is not a good way to promote one's own coins, lets keep it classy. After all, talking about BC on here or MINT on the BC forum only gives greater visibility to the wrong coin.

I don't think it will stay low anymore. There are too many developments now.

I am launching a big/huge/gigantic/humongous/gargantuan marketing campaign, and that will push the coin up a lot more.

Some progress on the Mintcoin Fund
(crossposted on mintcointalk.com)

  • Yesterday, I received the premine. Mint was at 20 satoshi, I placed a buy order at sell order at 21, expecting people would buyt it (it could have been the opposite and the price going down to 19 satoshi; I am not sure I should do this again).
  • Today, I sent the BTC conversion to a fiat exchange (the beloved and most secure bitcoin-central.net). It should arrive in one hour and then I will place a sell order I don't know at which price yet (market price, I guess, since BTC is falling down)
  • Tomorrow, it will be converted in Euros and I will transfer it to my own account with SEPA transfer
  • On the second of April, I should receive the Euro equivalent
  • From then on, I will contact the French administration will all due papers. They will read the bylaws, hopefully say the bylaws are acceptable and will publish the creation on the Journal officiel (Official Registry).
  • At this moment, we will make a major announcement. I will announce it in advance so that you guys get prepared to a contextual pump (contextual pump = not a pump because of market manipulation but because of an external even, here the announcement). Those who wish could sell their MINT and buy them back once the pump has faded (there is the risk is doesn't fade away and so that it cost you money - i any case, it would cost you your coin age). The risk/reward ratio is pretty good IMHO, but the risk is not zero, anyway
  • Then I will initiate two things: First, opening up a bank account, probably in a bank which is crowdfunding-friendly (I have my sources on this). Second, I will send the fiscal administration a request for rescript, that is an written, compelling evidence that they will accept tax-reduction for the Fund. If they say "yes", great, we can start moving. If they say "no", we will be allowed some time to change the wording so that they agree with it.

So, this is the plan Smiley

Thank you for keeping us updated, David! Sounds like things are in motion Smiley

Friend, you are sitting in one of the ripest markets in the world for this coin.

I hope you realize that. I understand something about the economic history and conditions there.

Good luck!!!

The Android wallet represents an open field run through a wide open hole in the other teams line. If we get it MINT will become top dog.

The thing holding BTC back from mass adoption is specialized equipment. Imagine if anyone can MINT on their android device. Mass adoption!!!!

What's it going to take to get this initiative going?




Is there a bounty thread out there for the android wallet? I know the first post tells that there is a bounty for that but no exact figures or statements. I also think that such a wallet is the key for mass adoption! Anyone knows a guy who can build such a wallet? If there is a bounty thread for that please tell me about this. Otherwise let's start such a bounty thread! I'd throw 300k of mint in.

I'll commit a meager 5K if a public bounty is started. I wish it could be more.

I can commit to donate as well. I believe one is already in the works, although I have not seen an update lately. My understanding is that there is a bounty from the dev but it couldn't hurt to add more on top of that, an android wallet would certainly be worth it.

I'm currently working to collect the bounty on the Android wallet.  There is still some work to do in the mintcoinj library but the front-end is almost finished.  Here are the current screenshots:

https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0BwpkXqmxmdGScm9lb21pTXhuS00&usp=sharing


What is the percentage of completation of the gui? We could create some mockup based on that and let the community give opinionions...

The GUI as presented is already suitable. Could it be better? Probably. Would it need to be better to be successful? Probably not.

Let them focus on the back end. Without the back end the front end is just 4 pretty pictures.

IF a working Android wallet is actually implemented, this coin has hope. Without it, not so much.

Just yesterday I came across a retail business with "Mint" in their name. I wanted so bad to share some mint. From my phone to their phone.

The GUI is pretty much the same as the bitcoin wallet. It could use some improvement... Minor changes, nothing really complex. I proposed myself for this task (matter of the fact, I've sent a pm to mrqu1ck).
I was saying this because I worked with GUI, usability test and so on, and that would be my personal little contribution to the big project called mintcoin. That's all.
Is this the person working on the wallet?  mrqu1cky

I contacted Mintcointeam to see what's going on with the status of this and asked if they could add the bounty amount to page 1 of the thread. I agree this is an important issue for us to take care of and am willing to donate some too for us to make this happen.

yeah the screenshots of the android wallet look nice. yet the key feature has to be the ability to mint using the android phone. that would really bring us forward. not even NXT has implemented this feature yet.
