Where is there a source, from the Icelandic government, that this is actually happening? Because if they are not behind this or at least taking part in it, then I am seeing this setting up to another huge blow to crypto with news postings of, "Iceland rejects new crypto" or "New crypto does not take off as expected in Iceland" followed by the obvious "futures look grim for BitCoin" and etc.

If this concept was even remotely legit the developers would not be hiding behind Whois guards and unknown IDs.

If you buy into this be sure to invest only what you can afford to lose.

The database is public so there is no problem to know each Icelandic ID

I would also preferred to see baldur real name. but I understand his fear and preference of anonymity.
To me he looks trustworthy as he surely not interested in an increased value of the coin at all, and he would have dumped all the coins already if he wasnt waiting for the airdrop.
Its your call if to take the risk and join the train or stay behind. both choices are ok as the train might go to a dead end

As all of you are interested in the story behind Auroracoin, I thought I'd point out a new coin I just found (which has been out awhile) that is doing the same thing as Auroracoin but for the Lakota nation.  But this time, it is in PARTNERSHIP with the people and government.

I don't see how premining 50% of a coin and giving it to people in iceland is going to make it worth anything.  What can you do with Auroracoin in iceland?  Would you expect business owners to start accepting this 50% premined give away cryptocurrency?  What makes you think they will all of the sudden adopt an alt crypto when bitcoin has been there and is established globally.  

You can keep your scam coin, and anyone who buys it is deserves what happens when it gets dumped to zero.

what keeps anybody from registering fake accounts and claiming free auroracoin? great idea, but it needs real government backing instead of an anonymous dude copying code and pasting in a forum. 

has anybody thought that 500 male teenagers will be willing to work through the night and claim all 330,000 Icelandic stakes, so that actually nobody in Iceland will actually be able to use Aurora?

Are you sure it is conjunction with the "government"?  Lakota Nation has 30,000 extremely poor Indians, many without smart phones or internet.  Not sure why the tribe elders would officially back a coin.  They are more concerned with basic needs.   

This is the Lakota government website. http://www.oglalalakotanation.org/oln/Home.html

This is the newspaper http://www.lakotacountrytimes.com/

The radio station http://www.kiliradio.org/

No mention of Maza anywhere.  I am all for the Indians having a coin, I want them too.  I am all for Iceland having a coin.  I want them too.  But these pseudo official coins which aren't official at all to me just hurt cryptocurrencies more than they help.  Can anyone explain why it is not just another pump and dump by a creator, just with the sham of attaching a "people" to it.  Come on!

Also..... check the Icelandic papers.  No mention of Auroracoin there either.  It is getting more press outside of Iceland than in it.

I just don't see this getting past the part where they dump a lot of coins into the market, i think it'll mess with the value too much

Why is that a problem? Of course it will be as volatile as can be, but it'll settle down over time.

There you go.. that's an Icelandic newspaper - http://www.mbl.is/vidskipti/frettir/2014/03/01/rafraenir_gjaldmidlar_sla_i_gegn/
http://www.mbl.is/vidskipti/frettir/2014/02/06/gefa_islendingum_nyja_rafmynt_2/

We still have time to reach all of the Icelandic people, first of all we need to get recognition from the alternative cryptocurrency community only after we can build trading tools and publicity.
we still have 23 days

If any of you think this coin is dead, I am of the opinion you're wrong.  I think there is a LOT of story to play out yet...
