FlappyCoin(Huh) [FLP]

BECAUSE OF THE UNFORTUNATE RELEASE OF 'FAKE' FLAPPY COIN, WE DECIDED TO TRANSFORM OUR COIN COMPLETELY.
WE ARE STILL 100% FAITHFUL TO THE ORIGINAL IDEA, THE PLAN IS TO RELEASE SOMETHING EVEN BIGGER AND BETTER!

THIS POST IS NOT REALLY RELEVANT ANY MORE, STAY TUNED FOR THE MASSIVE UPDATE

A Flappy Bird inspired coin, designed to promote community, development and generosity.
Our goal is to provide stable, reliable cryptocurrency that can be trusted, with a great community around it.






The "Flappy Bird" reference in the coin name is to remind us that even a little, insignificant idea can take over the world.

We have got a big plans for developing services and platforms around the coin.




Parameters:

Algorithm: scrypt
Coins per block: 50
Block time: 60 seconds
Total number of coins: 100,000,000
Diff re-target: 90 blocks




This page will be updated with details about the coin, services and our vision. Proper website is under construction.

We encourage everyone interested in helping with the launch to get in touch - we will need YOUR help to make this coin a massive success!

FAQ:

  • Q: Who are you people?
  • A: We are a bunch of IT professional friends from London, experienced with crypto and disgruntled with the current state of the market: insane amount of spamcoins, failed launches, countless pump and dump schemes.

  • Q: Why such name?
  • A: The story of a single, unheard of developer taking over the world by simple yet extremely captivating game (Flappy Bird) was an inspiration for creation of this coin.

  • Q: This coin is shit, why do we need another alt?
  • A: The aim of the Flappy Coin is to make a fresh difference in the current market. We want to create a stable, reliable coin that can be trusted. We want to promote what we call "Flappy Bird" ethos - the concept that even a single person can make a massive impact to the world.  This coin is NOT another pathetic pump and dump scheme designed to benefit developers and a few early adopters - if that is what you are after, please look elsewhere. We are here for a long haul.

  • Q: What are the plans for the coin?
  • A: The core values around the coin are trust, community, promotion of generosity, innovation and development. We plan to cooperate with charities and have got some unique ideas in the pipeline - stay tuned!

    We DON'T want Flappy Coin to become some bizarre financial construct, a speculation vehicle existing only to trade on shady exchanges and benefit a few early adopters.

  • Q: Parameters?
  • A: It is a scrypt coin, 60 seconds block time, 50 coins per block, 100 millions coins in total. Difficulty retarget 90 minutes. We don't want to spam market with billions of worthless coins, but at the same time we want to provide all miners (not just early adopters) with constant flow of coins - it will take over 2 years for block reward to halve. Quick difficulty recalculation should ensure better mining stability of the coin, especially during the launch window.


  • Q: Premine?
  • A: Because we absolutely want this coin to succeed, a difficult decision was made to premine (yes, an ugly "p" word!) 1% of the coin. HOWEVER, all of the coins gathered that way will be used for bounties, faucets, giveaways, coin promotion etc - they will be distributed among the community. The premine will NOT serve as a way for developers to earn some quick buck, these coins will NOT be dumped on the market. We will do our best to engage community in the coin and make sure as many people as possible can benefit from the initial coin distribution.

  • Q: When will the coin be released?
  • A: We are only going to release the coin when it is fully ready and tested. No half-baked code, broken wallets, no half-measures. The rough timescale is by the end of this month.


WE AIM FOR A FAIR AND EQUAL LAUNCH



Bounties:

5000 FLP - Design a logo! The logo should somehow refer to Flappy Bird game, but it cannot contain original assets.
** Current logo courtesy of sowen69. We plan to resume logo contest once things stabilize a bit Smiley **
** Please send your submission to logo [at] flappycoin.org **


3500 FLP - Create a FLP pool! Limited number of pool bounties left.

This coin is crap.

If you want a true altcoin with real technological contributions, then checkout NXT, XCP and Darkcoin.

Recommend (based on innovation): NXT,  XCP, DarkCoin, HeavyCoin

Please don't be so negative - there are many plans for the coin in the pipe already. Please judge us when you see them.
I believe the strength of the coin lies not only in technological innovation, but mostly in the community around it.

So where is the coin? Also what is the difficulty retarget time? After the two fail launches of Dopecoin and Macrocoin today this detail is very important.

The diff retarget is 90 blocks - 1.5 hour. This is enough to prevent difficulty oscillation, at the same time keeping instamine scenario at bay.

This coin is an answer to the flood of so-called 'shitcoins'.
An honest coin, build with community in mind. This is a rarity nowadays.
Flappy Bird is just a symbol of the idea that people have got extraordinary power in shaping the reality.

No premine or other nonsense. We aim for fair launch, everyone interested will be able to participate.

I understand the skepticism, but this is NOT another spamcoin.
There is a lot of work put into the FBC at the moment, starting from the services around the coin to proper infrastructure for launch.

I am sure you are going to realize this very soon.

The launch will not happen sooner than next week. There is still a lot of development and testing to be done - we want a 100% successful start (not like in case of some other coins...). Thanks for pointing this out though - I made the announcement more clear.

In the meantime, we will keep this page updated with the details about the coin, services and out vision, so please keep watching! Smiley
