TAXICOIN (TAXI) : An Alternate Cryptocurrency for Taxis Worldwide

Launch Time : 6:00PM EST 2/20/2014 [Apologies to those who bore with us for the minor problems at launch.]

Technical Details:

Core: Litecoin v0,8 [Scrypt, AMD GPU Suggested]

Coins issued: 56 Million

Block Time: 90 seconds

Block Reward:

50% of TAXICOINS will be mined in 8 months, During these 8 months the block reward is reduced 3 times, starting at 250, then 125, next 65, and finally 35. The remaining 50% of TAXICOINS will be mined in 12 years, with a block reward reduction every 350,000 blocks (1 year), starting at 20 and reducing by 25%.

SuperBlocks:

There will be superblocks 3 times a day for a 2 week period before and after every block reward reduction, and during the beginning of the coin. The closer to the halving block, the greater the superblock multiplier is, starting at 1x all the way to 18x, and conversely, the further the block halving gets the lesser the superblock multiplier.

Annoucement:

What if there was a better way to pay for your taxi, limo or car service? Imagine never thinking about having cab fare or having your credit card information compromised again…

Welcome to the future of taxi payments - TAXICOIN.

Featuring instantaneous service, security and low fees, TAXICOIN is the most reliable method of payment for any taxicab travel. TAXICOIN aims to position itself as the cryptocurrency of choice for taxi operators.

We believe that Bitcoin (and by extension other cryptocurrencies) are exceptional for storing wealth long term, however as they naturally appreciate in value over time they will be used less and less for day to day transactions. Instead, we envision a future in which TAXICOIN can be quickly and easily purchased with BTC, fiat, or other cryptocurrencies for those who wish to specifically use it for taxi transportation.

Mobile phone usage is quickly outpacing traditional landlines, thus doing away with the need for a proprietary hardware device for both driver and passenger. As in the Bitcoin protocol, double spending and charge backs are impossible thereby providing the driver with the security of knowing once sent, TAXICOINS cannot be reverse-charged or withdrawn by a bank.


The Present: TaxiCoin is currently up and running, please join our pool or contact us for help starting your own.


The Future:


Parents and friends will be able to load TAXICOIN securely onto smartphones for easy payment from rider to drivers.

Hosts of events large or small may transfer TAXICOIN to their guests to facilitate transportation to and from their venues.

Using TAXICOIN as a driver means more security and dramatically lower fees as there is no third party facilitating payment.

Use your TAXICOIN for gift cards with qualified partners to get gas, food, movies, and much more by converting your TAXICOIN into redeemable gift cards and passes.

I actually like the 6 hour retarget. It makes it so the it's not too long of a wait when a large hashrate leaves the network, and at the same time gives a padding for when a large hashrate comes in to the network.

It also balances nicely with the super block period. Ensures that for the 2 week period, people won't just come and go.

I would imagine you could convert your breadcoins to milkcoins, or perhaps convert your trollcoins for whatever you wanted!

Something I worked up while I was waiting for your response. Actually looks pretty similar to the ones you posted.

Wow, that is one great looking design. Would you mind if we added it to a community poll to choose the official logo?
