About Gaelcoin

When was Gaelcoin created ?
Gaelcoin development started in early 2014 to provide an alternative electronic currency for Ireland.

How is Gaelcoin different to, for example, Spaincoin or Greececoin?
First of all, we only pre-mined 1% of the Gaelcoins leaving the remaining 99% of Gaelcoins available to be mined. This gives the ownership of the Gaelcoin currency to the early adopters and the miners and not the developers. Many other currencies pre-mine 50% of the total avaiable coins which creates an enourmous risk as the the majority of the currency will remain in the hands of a few developers. Secondly, Gaelcoin is not an easy coin to mine. Compared to 99% of all the other cryptocurrencies that have been launched, Gaelcoin has a much higher mining difficulty. This is to create a more stable Crypto-currency as many “pump & dump” miners looking to make a quick buck would stay away from mining the coin.

What is pre-mining?
Pre-mining is a process of awarding the initial miners a bonus, which can then be used for further development of the currency. Gaelcoin is 1% pre-mined, which is a very small percentage compared to many of the other alternative currencies out there

The first 100.000? There are a lot more people living in Ireland...
Correct, many of the other crytocurrencies go for the 50% pre-mine approach with the promise that they will give an amount of their currency free to each citizen of the country they are mining for. However, we strongly believe that this approach will create a highly unstable currency as the majority of the currency will always stay in the hands of a select few people. It is impossible and impractical to give each and every citizen their share of the 50% pre-mined coins leaving a large number of coins unclaimed. This large amount can then be used to heavily influence the market price of the currency by the currency developers leading to market crashes or artificial inflation.

Really? Make the announcement at diff 0.7 and 20 MH/s on the network?
Happy mining for you and your friend with the 20 MH/s rig.

1% of total was taken on first block similar to auroracoin.  Difficulty is climbing high due to many miners connecting.

How did you see the diff? There are no pools.

In SGMiner the diff is 44.6K..not sure how to interpret that, but it sure as hell ain't 0.7.

4 mins after the ann here diff was already 0.72, and you are claiming 2 days diff retarget time. Not even KGW can drive the diff up so fast
