Voting on Mintpal continues, we're almost clearing 10,000 votes!
https://www.mintpal.com/voting

Look for all your BTC dust and send it to Mintpal votes!
https://blockchain.info/address/1EXSWesguttFaz5MjeD5DZbvEWZPXuXiVJ

It looks like Mintpal re-adjusted their voting. EduCoin is still at ~60th position and moving up. Voting with BTC dust is a very good idea!

Developer Update: News Interview

Pleased to announce recent coverage with CryptoCoinsNews. Journalist Alyssa Hertig interviews pseudonymous developer Satoshi Edumoto. This is the most definitive look at what EduCoin is about and what we, as a community, are doing with regards to sponsorships at hackathons as well as a long-term strategy for adoption at schools, universities, and startups around the world.

Link: http://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/news/educoin-digital-currency-makes-us-smarter/2014/05/09

Why does our current education system need EduCoin and why can’t Bitcoin fulfill this need?

In the U.S., college students have passed $1.2 trillion in student loan debt, and education as an institution has not changed in a century. EduCoin is a rallying point for students, educators, and startups to re-think how we pay for education, including whether the $400 billion we spend annually on higher education even makes any sense. As the cryptocurrency ecosystem takes shape, EduCoin reminds us of the dawn of the internet’s top-level domains in 1985. We can make the comparison that Bitcoin is the dot com network of digital currency, whereas EduCoin is the dot edu network of digital currency for education.

Great work!

I was wondering if anyone else is having issues syncing their wallets currently? I've had 0 active connections and tried changing the config to all the various versions. If someone could help me figure this issue out, I'd really appreciate it! I'm trying to get Edu prepared for the twitter giveaway but cannot get it to sync sadly.

Hi Adatrader,

Have you had a state when the wallet did sync, or is this the first time you are starting up the wallet?  The trickiest part is the .config file. Make sure it didn't save accidentally as a .config.txt file. This happens in the Windows platform quite frequently.

If you want to re-install, make sure you have backed up your wallet and secured the wallet.dat file somewhere else. Then delete the root folder and the application data folder. Restart and re-install.

If the problem is still active, please share more details here like what actions were taken, which platform your are using (Win/Mac/Linux), etc. Good luck!

Hi Adatrader,

To sync my wallet I use this config file:

addnode=54.202.48.202

I'm actually experiencing the same problem as the other poster. I attempted to add the forkpool/multipool pools as nodes previously after not establishing a connection through the official nodes after a solid day of idling as well, but not working. Firewall disabled, no antivirus, cleared appdata after wallet backup, multiple config edit attempts, no success. In addition, I tried the same steps at a local internet cafe on their computer to verify my computer/firewall isn't causing the issue, but same result. I'm quite capable of dealing with various wallet issues but can't manage to establish a connection. Any technical assistance would be greatly appreciated, and tipped generously.

Thanks

Forgot to mention, I think the concept of incentivizing people to educational games by using an educoin reward would be outstanding. I personally have a 15% of my Educoins set aside for these purposes and would definitely donate to keep the affiliate educational game site wallets full. I also can't imagine it being a negative aspect of their website to utilize this reward system, as it would be donated for free and provide them a marketable differentiation strategy (paying kids for learning). It's just a matter of implementation and I personally have no insight in that department but hopefully our hard-working devs do!

One website in particular that seemed interesting is http://www.arcademics.com/

If the developers could reach out to those individuals, I'm sure our great community will continue to be as supportive and gracious towards donating as they've done so up to this point. Would really help bring awareness to Educoin and might potentially get us some media slot time.

Something similar http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/education/2008-01-27-grades_N.htm?csp=usat.me (obviously larger scale) was done to incentivize the younger generation to work harder in school, this could be an after school addition to their studies.

Developer Note

First of all, thanks sp00lin9 for bringing this to our attention! Since you mentioned how much EDU you are willing to contribute to fund experiments and adoption strategies for EDU, I want to take this opportunity to put out some guidelines for miners. Considering there are more than a few miners who have several billions of EDU I sense their frustration of not being able to realize immediate profit. That is not what we were about from the beginning, so I apologize if large EDU holders feel they have been drawn into this real coin's mission.  But all is not lost, there is something more effective miners can do that offers everyone a win: Instead of holding and waiting, give some away.

The key challenge to increasing EDU value is the adoption of EDU by target end users (students). The current distribution of EDU looks like this (see illustration below).  Miners can change the situation by rapidly investing a percentage of their coins to fund students, schools, and education non-profits. When more coins from the top 60 billion+ go down toward students, the more things will start happening: from a markets standpoint, and most importantly, real changes can occur in education. That's something to feel really good about! Let us not sit on the sidelines, expecting someone else to do something that you can do for yourself. Look at the suggested guidelines below and please feel free to participate if it makes sense for you. For those investors who bought all their EDU, that is somewhat different and the choice is yours.

Developer Note Re: Syncing Issues (Nodes)

After hearing reports of spotty wallet syncing, we did some troubleshooting.  Please hold off trying to fix the issue at your end (there is nothing wrong with your QT-client). Some of the nodes are down. We'll update here when this has been resolved. Thank you!

The DNS is back up and running. Please report any syncing issues here.

Procedure to test:
1) Open QT client and see whether it syncs.
2) If it does not sync, build the default .conf and then try again.
3) If it still does not sync, build the .conf below. No need for addnodes anywhere in config, on startup commandline. (seed.educoin.cc)

澳洲虚拟币学驾照 创新方式吸引大众眼球



new media report!

I heard about this earlier but never saw this famous photo until now!  Congrats everyone, and thanks Aumarx!

Here is a rough translation via Google translate, about Jetson Driving School in Hurtsville Australia:

Today, accelerate the pace of social , novelty after another. Virtual currency seemed to be ahead of the world in the development process into the next century. Governments also continue to publish policy to guide its development. For the leading virtual currency , Bitcoin is experienced numerous storms . Still a strong presence in the public view and society. Thousands of policies implemented in different countries so that investors like the crossroads , the road can not tell which is good. But for the full swing of the economic chain of virtual currency overseas development , making it a virtual currency for a better tomorrow and cognitive understanding .

Australia has been one of the virtual currency has been supported by the country, its people welcome degree of enthusiasm for virtual currency . Support for virtual currency payment businesses , Bitcoin ATM and other fresh news always happen in this country.

Recently, reporters learned from the well-known website forum . You can use the virtual currency has been learning to drive at a local private driving school in Sydney, Australia .

This driving school is located in the center of Sydney HURSTVILLE a district office , HURSTVILLE Chinese residential area is densely populated areas of Sydney , with the reputation of a small Hong Kong. For the reporter went hastily visit , Driving boss does not exclude but very welcome .

Our schools have been opened for five years , during which trained hundreds of motorists in the RTA 's pass rate is very high. Proud boss said .

Reporter directly to the point , ask , and virtual currency payment . Boss said that the recent Sydney many newspapers are reporting virtual currency , although personally think is a more advanced concept, but willing to try . There are already four driving trainees interested in virtual currency payment fees , and there are already two participants paid virtual currency and signed a contract to start learning to drive.

Reporters saw eye-catching signs to the entrance asked why only supports Bitcoin and Educoin not support other virtual currency Wright such other currency and other currency dogs . Boss said , Bitcoin is the preferred name suggests , Educoin educational implications are , by definition you have to learn , I'll teach you to pay me Educoin, more innovative .

When a reporter asked to carefully study the specific number of virtual currency to pay the price and when the boss responded that involves commercial competition among peers disclose.

For virtual currency tomorrow , Driving boss optimistic attitude. She joked that the world continues to progress , and we have to catch up with the pace of the middle-aged , or will be eliminated , but oh !
