DopeCoin celebrates 5 years! Announces drastic changes.

I am thrilled to announce that today is DopeCoin’s 5th year company anniversary!

I’d like to personally thank everyone who has joined us on this adventure. Without your enthusiasm and support, this project would simply not exist.

When DopeCoin launched on February 15th of 2014 we were naive with not only our choice of brand name but also our understanding of how to drive real-world use to our cryptocurrency.

Our original plan was to have DopeCoin accepted in several online shops, garner some mainstream media attention, and watch as the masses began buying marijuana-related purchases with our coin. Simultaneously we aimed to provide banking solutions for the marijuana industry which was, at that time, blacklisted from conventional business banking solutions.

The problem was….

Even after being featured on Fox News, Huffington Post, PC Mag, and others, the masses were not lining up and using crypto to make purchases and marijuana companies were showing zero interest in using any kind of marijuana-related crypto as a banking solution.

The reality of the situation is that we were too early.

In fact, not a single marijuana-related crypto has been successful at gaining any sort of meaningful traction with regards to real-world use.

Furthermore, the business model of trying to provide a banking solution for the marijuana industry has not happened and likely will never happen.

As legalization continues to spread across North America and beyond, we are already seeing banks who are opening their doors to this quickly emerging industry.

I will be the first to admit that our original business model has been a failure.

So where do we go from here?

The answer is simple, we innovate and adapt.

In order to achieve real-world use with our cryptocurrency two things need to happen:

1. We need to create a scenario where the benefit of using our crypto is so compelling that using fiat or another crypto would clearly be an inferior choice.
2. We need to rebrand.

In late 2017, we launched an ICO and successfully raised approximately 500 Ethereum to build Grow Advertising.

Grow Advertising is a pay-per-click advertising exchange, similar to Google Adwords, that provides a real-time auction-based marketplace for industries that are blacklisted from advertising on nearly all mainstream platforms.

Those industries include crypto, legal marijuana, CBD, vape/e-cig, pharmaceuticals and supplements, and more.

Our platform has been built from scratch and we have invested over 10,000 man hours into its development over the last year.

Some of the key features of the platform include:

- A self-serve portal that allows publishers and advertisers the ability to create advertisements and placements without any kind of third-party intervention.
- A built from scratch auction-based bidding system and delivery algorithm that allows for a real-time marketplace.
- Proprietary anti-fraud features to weed out bot traffic and account for unviewed impressions.
- Advanced targeting features including operating system, geolocation, device, browser and more.
- And most importantly, the platform accepts cryptocurrency and will provide users who pay with our coin with a massive 25% deposit bonus.

We will process crypto payments with our custom-built payment gateway Crypto Billings.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hGLFSxUHA4

Crypto Billings is completely free and allows merchants and customers to use our gateway for absolutely zero transaction fees.

Merchants have access to plugins for the most popular shopping cart software and can easily integrate Crypto Billings seamlessly into their existing e-commerce stores. Wordpress users can even download us directly from the Wordpress plugin store.

Merchants can also accept payments to any wallet address they want and do not need to download any software or use any third-party wallets to store funds.

Our P2P technology allows merchants to accept funds to desktop wallets, cold storage, exchanges, or wherever they like in as much time as it takes the blockchain to process two transactions.

Crypto Billings is already fully live and operational and Grow Advertising is scheduled to go live in North America by the third quarter of this year.

So what about the name DopeCoin?

Well, we are already in the process of forking and rebranding DopeCoin to GROW.

Our mission with GROW is to provide the above mentioned legal blacklisted industries with payment gateway and performance advertising solutions.

During the rebranding process, we will also be forking and upgrading our technology to the latest PIVX codebase.

This upgrade will include nearly instant transaction speeds, enhanced privacy and security features and master nodes.

Development is already underway and more details regarding release dates, a new whitepaper, updated roadmap, and upcoming partnerships will be revealed in the coming weeks.

The day has come for us to part ways with the DopeCoin brand and evolve into something more mainstream and investment friendly as we prepare to release our most impressive technology to date.

There was never a premine or any sort of development fund in place to create or push this project forward over the years. We have been completely self-funded and are still around due to the tremendous efforts of our team and community support.

I am very lucky to of had the opportunity to bring DopeCoin to life and I am thrilled and absolutely committed to taking the GROW project to a whole new level.

Happy Anniversary DopeCoin!

Regards,

Adam Howell
Founder

DopeCoin is available for use on several minor sites but the reality of the situation is that it is not being used for real-world purchases in any sort of relevant capacity.

This is the same situation for every marijuana-related currency and for nearly every crypto in existence at the moment.

The cold hard truth is that the only way to force real-world use of a cryptocurrency is to provide a massive benefit over using crypto vs fiat or credit card. I personally feel that the only way this can be accomplished is by providing a significant discount if a digital currency is used.

It is in my opinion that cryptocurrency developers need to also create a marketplace or service that provides a monetary incentive for using their coin.

That is what we have planned for Grow Advertising.

Grow Advertising will provide a massive 25% bonus for advertisers if they fund their account using DopeCoin/GROW.

When we take a look at an industry like pay-per-click advertising and performance marketing a 25% bonus can mean the difference between having a break-even campaign or achieving profit.

Combine that with our absolutely free payment gateway www.cryptobillings.com and we could potentially be one of the first cryptos to provide a strong enough incentive to actually use our coin over fiat.

absolutely impressed with the direction this project development is headed in. it takes a lot of gumption to admit that the early business model was wrong, but things looked much different five years ago when everyone thot ubiquitous crypto-adoption was right around the corner. crypto billings turned out to be a very simple integration and ive already set it up on my own ecommerce store (the leafy cauldron apothecary) as we prepare to open its doors. i honestly prefer crypto payments over paypal considering the issues ive had with that transnational over the years regarding cryptocurrency. what are the plans to improve the number of usable currencies?

ive been working on the development of my own cannabis related blockchain, PUFFScoin, for the last two years. our core focus is dApp development for the cannabis industry and consumer, coupled with a number of ancillary web services that will be integrated into the blockchain where appropriate as the year progresses. we plan on supporting the other cryptocannabis projects that are extant and have active development or communities. this july we will be launching weedEX, a centralized exchange with a specific focus on trading cryptocannabis assets and other "green crypto", and im hoping we'll be able to include DopeCoin (or GROW if the rebrand is finished y then..) there as well as work with the DopeCoin community and developer to construct a bridge between DOPE and PUFFS allowing for cross-chain operability thru token burn contracts.

will be running a test transaction thru the apothecary this weekend to see how expedient the transaction of DOPE to my desktop wallet is.(just waiting for it to finish syncing the last year of the blockchain) with only a single connected node, it is syncing incredibly well, which is impressive for a blockchain project thats now over 5 years old.

if theres a bounty for merchants accepting DOPE at their business, or for promotion of CryptoBillings, my wallet address is DC71GiYq4i3viq4AZsnS5Eu8D7wtPNDKvp

looking forward to seeing Grow Advertising in action. (we have plans to deploy a smart contract suite MarijuanAds on the blockchain network and am interested in your approach to the platform.)

Due to the recent vulnerabilities discovered with the ZeroCoin protocol, we have decided to postpone our rebrand and tech upgrade to the PIVX codebase indefinitely.

Our team is actively looking for alternative options as we aim to provide our users with the latest and safest blockchain technology.

In the meantime, we are preparing for the imminent beta release of the Grow Advertising platform are scheduled to go live with our first partner on June 5th.

The DopeCoin development team has successfully integrated device targeting into the Grow Advertising platform and we are scheduled to go live with our official beta release on June 5th.

After 2 years of very hard work, we are very close to revealing an outstanding piece of technology desperately needed by the legal marijuana industry and we have several large volume publishers lined up to try our new service.

Stay tuned for more info in the weeks to come.

While this sucks its the best decision regarding security of the chain. Does dash suffer from the fake MN exploit? Dope or whatever it becomes doesn't need a secondary layer of privacy such as zcoin or whatever is next for pivx.

It's also time to start brainstorming new names and brand ideas for dope to transform into.

This is already in the pipeline.   Rebrand is imminent and it will allow us to cater to several more industries which is huge.  I operate a business that caters to the Forex markets and already have plans and budget allocation to expand our advertising efforts onto the Grow platform once it goes live.

Very Excited for the future of this project and I'm personally invested and adding to my holdings accordingly.

Outstanding sir!  We are looking forward for Grow Advertising to go live as we are in one of the industries that badly need a solution like this.  Facebook is a horrid non communicative pile of dung to have to deal with advertising on, and Google is not much better.

Hey Adam that's great news!
 Looking forward to the new platform and the contribution Dope and its community will add. Its great to see real use case for our coin. This is sadly lacking in so many other tokens, coins and assets in the crypto hemisphere.
 As usual Dope is leading the way in diversity and evolving to keep up with the times. Perhaps indicative of why such an old ambassador is still around to this day and shall be for years to come!
 Well done to the Team and Community!
