I have listened to Doug on the "radio" basically mumbling for an hour (enough of the bio details, we already know them like the palm of our hand, ok?) without saying anything of any significance that hasn't been said, posted and commented ad infinitum. And a bunch of the usual common places: "Get the word out", "VRC will make their (people) lives easier"....

And that stayed in my mind: In what way/s will VRC possibly make anyone life easier? I have answer number one, of course, and the reason why I bought in in the first place. But it is... funny,m for lack of a better word, at this stage in the game, to want to sell on the idea of VRC as something that in any way can make anyone's life "easier". Much as I try to avoid it, it is just BULL SHIT!

Truth is no crypto currency, not Bitcoin not any other alto can make anyone's life easier that just ignoring they exist and continue using the credit cards or the cold hard cash. Why this idiotic euphemism by which using VRC would make anyone's life easier? Is it assuming people are complete idiots and they don't immediately realize that, among many other things, -all negative and/or dangerous, from fraud to outright robbery, not to mention the lack of warranties, instability and easy to lose-, they will have to endure an extremely steep learning curve before they get any use of digital currencies and, WHEN THEY DO, they will practically not get any advantages compared to fiat?

How are you going to sell the idea of VRC to anyone if you approach it to begin with under the falsest  of premises? Digiotal currencies don't make anyone's lives easier. Digital currencies are a number of things, none of which c an have the word "easy" attached to it. They are, on the other hand, quite complicated. Exceptionally volatile and dangerous. You can lose your money, all of it, at any given moment just because. Of you can lose all of it because if someone steals your last model android, or you dump it in the pool, or the toilet, you just lost your money, right there... unless you have copies on other devices, which is ANYTHING but easy or uncomplicated. Your bank, on the other hand, has your money quite accessible and you dont even need to remember your password, it can be reset in the simplest of ways. And it is safe and it is insured by the government. How you compare those for "easy"? Come on!

But who cares, right? Prepare a radio interview? Nah, I'll improvise. I'll nail it anyway. Mumbling a bit? so did Marlon Brando, repeating myself and boring people to the brink of suicide, hey how can they not get the vibe, the underground energy, the excitement...?

You know what makes people invested in VRC presently turn their lives to be easier? To push in that sell button. Which they are doing massively and probably prompted by your absolutely unfounded "enthusiasm".

Sheeeeesh!

i am going to do my best to read through this.

1) never tell a dev he is mumbling, kinda disrespectful don't you think ? The man clearly is addressing concerns, upcoming ideas

2) Would VRC / Crypto make anyone's life easier??? Did you really just ask that ? ok get this, ever since you and I were born, there was a monetary system established. Unless you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth, or seriously busted your ass to be fortunate to go to school, pay off your debts, get a decent gig you will still carry massive debts. Now look at it globally, we are lucky to live in the States or in some modern countries, now think how hard it is for a working person sending money back home to their family in some 3rd world place. They get hit with massive fees, ( insert your fav money transfer company here ) Yes to you  2/5 bucks might not be anything but in some parts of the world that is their salary for One day !  Crypto would make it easier indeed, little or no fee, fast transfer using cell phones, computers etc. I won't get political about the feds. You can research on that yourself.- as for people just using credit cards, yes they see the convenience however we all know most people are not responsible with money..they buy thing they don't need or can afford, more debts, more problems....But credit cards are very convenient and practical.

3) it is not about selling the idea, it is about educating the public. As of now crypto currency is hardly known to the general public, i would not call them idiots as you put it, they simply lack the knowledge. Before they can trust this crypto system, they must see the value, in this case speed, convenience, lifestyle, security and benefits ( read above how one can send money to family) Btw this is not just a VRC issue, it is crypto as a whole that has this image issue. Now toss in the dozens of pump and dump coins, hacks, theft, fud etc. It does not help to get anyone new to come into crypto. We are too busy attacking this coin, or that coin and missing the big picture.  Yet once in a while you get a team of smart folks who actually show their faces, chat with people, upfront and have great ideas and have delivered on most.. however there is work to be done, I agree with you on that.

4) Everything you mentioned about the banks is convenience, infrastructure which as i said has already been in place before you were born. however it is not perfect, look at it as whole system, it is flawed.. again i wont get political.

5) The devs getting on radio, hang outs etc is to stay in touch with us, let us know hey we are not running off, we are still working with you guys. They give hints on what they are up to, considering this is after all a competitive market with a moving target as deadline, it is not fair to expect them to tell you hey we will deliver XYZ on this date and when /if they miss it...here comes the FUD squad with pitch forks. Do know they are working on new features.

I can see at times you mean well, hell you even give good ideas at times. You have the right to be concerned as you mentioned you have purchased some VRC, so as an investor I respect you. Likewise I ask of you the same toward the Devs and other members here..

Man this is my longest post..similar to your style hehe  Cheesy. Seriously, just be respectful and help out if you can, contribute ideas etc.

Good fucking points. Why would someone want to go through the effort to acquire VRC and then make a purchase. Most people don't care about being even somewhat anonymous. And you can easily lose all your money and it isn't even your fault since all it takes it a large hack and they dump it all.

Right now just BTC because so many people are deep in it will last. It's up to the devs to add on to BTC but they gotta go slow to not mess anything up or make it worse.

For another coin to take over 2nd place needs to be really good. Coins like Ethereum and VIA may have a shot. It gives people a purpose to check it out and invest and use and not just gimmicks.

Spread the word of VRC!!

So as I briefly mentioned in my post above - I was able to get Vericoin a booth at the Minnesota State Fair coming up on 8/30/2014. For those east coaster/west coasters (people outside of US) that think "well that's pretty lame" - I gotta say; our state fair is one of the biggest events in the Midwest. On any single day they will have 100,000-200,000 people come through with really solid days hitting 225,000+. The fair goes on for 2 weeks and the most popular days statistically are always the final Saturday/Sunday. So with that in mind I made sure to lock down the booth for the final Saturday from 11am-4pm. It's 100% locked down. We have the booth, we have the day/time.

The booth will be part of what's call "MN World Fair 2023". Which is an organization that is trying to raise money/awareness to win the bid to have Minnesota host the 2023 World Fair (I had no idea that was still a thing). So in having the 2023 Expo they are looking for tech-related companies and groups to help sponsor the event. In order to get the booth, I either had to fork over $1,000 or get 6 people to help volunteer a shift during the day for the Expo group itself. So at the end of the day I made some quick phone calls and got 7 of my friends to all join in and help out. Why 7 you ask? Well we need to throw the Expo booth itself 6 people to work for them plus we need another 2 of us at the event actually representing Vericoin. So all in all there are 8 of us that are going to volunteer our afternoons to help support the cause.

With that being said, while my other 6 friends are all helping the 2023 Expo people my buddy and I will do whatever we can to help spread the word about Vericoin. We're going to be there for 5 hours with literally tens of thousands of people walking by. And yeah... I guess at this point we're open for ideas.

My B job in life is to represent large companies and big events as a brand ambassador, so fortunately I do this kind of thing all the time. I love talking to people and I love being social - so I think this is going to work out well.

At this point my initial thought is to hopefully raise some VRC from the community, so we can hand out whatever we are able to raise. Possibly get some VRC stickers (which I know PNosker mentioned he would send over) maybe even some VRC t-shirts. To be honest, for the dev team - I would say this would fall into the category of possibly a big enough event 1 of 2 of you would be interested in flying out here? I mean no joke - there will literally be a quarter million people there throughout the day.

So at this point I'm 100% open to any suggestions/ideas/comments. I have that VRC donation address below, which a few of you have been kind enough to donate to. Its unfortunately an old bittrex account that I don't really use (i'm more of a mintpal kind of guy) but I don't like the fact keeping the coins hot. I would have given out my personal wallet address but I don't want to co-mingle funds. So any thoughts on that would be great too.

Last thought real quick. Over the next few days I will be getting the VRC logo and website up on the official Expo 2023 website. Not only to spread the word but to hopefully instill trust within the community that I'm not just pulling some quick BS move *cough coughWizrig cough*. 100% of what gets donated will get passed out that day. I won't take a penny. All together my friends and I will be donating about 40 hours of our time - and I'm really just happy to do this because aside from owning a lot of VRC, I think it will be a fun day Smiley

tl;dr - Vericoin booth at MN State Fair in a couple weeks.

I care enough to use anon, fuck the banks. I am done with this government good intentions. I believe many middle class people like me are also done with bullshit banks and taxes. So I have no Idea what you are saying when you say most people.
You talking FUD ?

tl;dr - Vericoin booth at MN State Fair in a couple weeks.

Very commendable and on behalf of the part of the community that really appreciate honest efforts, thank you. You should be getting paid for this -as well as your friends- but since there's no money and you guys are willing to do it, plas, plas, plas. kudos and , again, thank you.

If is a huge pity, though, that the timing could not possibly suck more: Any donation now will be at 5 cents of a dollar per VRC -while only a few weeks back it was 4 times as much. And yes, shirts costs 4 times as much too. And they are VERI needed for the event should look great with lots of giveaways... that I don't know if the community, and the devs, are willing to donate.

For visitor only handouts will work in terms of getting any attention. So I would suggest paper wallets -no time for electronic ones that should be massively available by now-, with at least 400-500 VRC to give away to visitors picked up at random, like 10 or 20 or whatever you can afford with the donations received. And hand outs, of course of printed information. You guys need to wear T-shirts with the logo and give away as many as available, as well as the wallets. And talk not just to random people but make some kind of brief (well prepared!) "intro to digital currency/VRC" to bunches of people, tens, hundreds if possible. In groups!

And, of course, video of as good quality as you can, and photos likewise so they are uploaded to the social networks and edited up in a fast paced youtube video on the fly. Beyond that, do as many local interviews as possible, maybe some press article in the local paper/radio/tv channel.

Now, this is an opp for the community to show the real strength by actually doing something practical, tangible and that, at the very least, is going to bring a bunch of new people interested in digital currencies and, hopefully, in VRC. You deserve kudos, again, for the effort and hopefully the response will be generous enough to make of the event a real hit after so many misses.

Best luck and thanks again!

I am going to propose an experiment to coincide with the Minnesota State Fair VRC day. It does appear the VRC now has leaders in 25 countries. And I am sure it has potential leaders in every major city in the US.

LETS MAKE SATURDAY, AUGUST 30th "WORLD VERICOIN DAY"

Lets have massive donations to an account established by the devs so every country's capital and every major city in the US will have similar amounts of paper wallets and Vericoin T-shirts so we will have a major worldwide event. From Manila to Rome, From Melbourne -or Sidney, or both, to Tokyo, Paris, London, Munich, Moscow... everywhere. And have those leaders manage the events and upload pictures of hundreds of thousands of people listening and learning about Vericoin and Vericoin World Day. Timing is tight but it can be done. It will not cost too much but it is worth it to be extra generous. IT HAS NEVER BEEN DONE before. Success, on a major scale, is quite possible. Press and other media at the local level, could be possible in many cases. Imagine, the Vericoin logo, wallets, T-shirts simultaneously in 30-40 biggest cities in the world. Let's do it! Lets have those leaders show leadership, initiative, dynamism and ACTION!.

Furthermore: Lets make the donations, actual purchases, that way we will have an added positive effect: Whatever you are going to donate, purchase it now. This is a very low price so it won't cost you that much, and if half the people that have wallets buy some coins, that will be more than 2500 buy orders.

If we are to support this idea, and it is worth supporting, lets do it all the way, Lets see how strong the community really is... What do we have to lose?

And we certainly have a lot, a whole lot to gain.

Give as generously as you feel the project deserves and you can.

Xosihc let me know if you need a specific web site up and running for any reason I can have it done in a weekend.

I appreciate that! I'm not sure if a website is needed - more than anything I was going to get something up on vericoinnews.info... If you think a 1 page site/landing page would be worth while. We can definitely work on something together.

I think that would be an awesome idea!! I know we are short on time, which doesn't help but if the community is ever going to be serious about doing something big we might as well do it now.

Hey guys,

It is sad to see such a low value for VRC.  However we are not just motivated by price and this is why we aren't anonymous and haven't walked away.  The most important part of being successful is not giving up and it is the thing most people do. This is a reset, if you must sell so be it.  If you want to build the future, we will be here with the community, working to build it!  If we don't give up, we have already beat most of the competition.  

Words mean very little. Let's see where you are and vericoin is in 1 year from now.

No matter where he is, at least he will still have integrity and won't be burdened by the negative Karma that's associated with having to constantly spread FUD on other altcoin message boards (unlike some people, who many in the altcoin community seem to loathe).

On the other hand, it's pretty telling to me that this little VeriCoin team seems to be that great of a threat to the other altcoins that they have to send bashers over here to try and scare new investors away.  When you think about it though, it's actually kind of cool.  If VeriCoin was really as dead in the water as so many of the bashers try to say it is then why would they spend so much of their time here?   Huh Shocked

I agree, I've invested a good amount of my BTC into VRC and honestly I don't even care if I lose it all or most of it at this point, just because I like the dev team. I know that these guys actually work hard, put their faces on the internet, and do things in the real world to show that they want their crypto to succeed. You can't say that for most altcoins. Having said that, I still think VRC will bounce back up because it's been down before and the devs are showing no signs of abandoning us.

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us - Gandalf

Spread the word of VRC!!

So as I briefly mentioned in my post above - I was able to get Vericoin a booth at the Minnesota State Fair coming up on 8/30/2014. For those east coaster/west coasters (people outside of US) that think "well that's pretty lame" - I gotta say; our state fair is one of the biggest events in the Midwest. On any single day they will have 100,000-200,000 people come through with really solid days hitting 225,000+. The fair goes on for 2 weeks and the most popular days statistically are always the final Saturday/Sunday. So with that in mind I made sure to lock down the booth for the final Saturday from 11am-4pm. It's 100% locked down. We have the booth, we have the day/time.

The booth will be part of what's call "MN World Fair 2023". Which is an organization that is trying to raise money/awareness to win the bid to have Minnesota host the 2023 World Fair (I had no idea that was still a thing). So in having the 2023 Expo they are looking for tech-related companies and groups to help sponsor the event. In order to get the booth, I either had to fork over $1,000 or get 6 people to help volunteer a shift during the day for the Expo group itself. So at the end of the day I made some quick phone calls and got 7 of my friends to all join in and help out. Why 7 you ask? Well we need to throw the Expo booth itself 6 people to work for them plus we need another 2 of us at the event actually representing Vericoin. So all in all there are 8 of us that are going to volunteer our afternoons to help support the cause.

With that being said, while my other 6 friends are all helping the 2023 Expo people my buddy and I will do whatever we can to help spread the word about Vericoin. We're going to be there for 5 hours with literally tens of thousands of people walking by. And yeah... I guess at this point we're open for ideas.

My B job in life is to represent large companies and big events as a brand ambassador, so fortunately I do this kind of thing all the time. I love talking to people and I love being social - so I think this is going to work out well.

At this point my initial thought is to hopefully raise some VRC from the community, so we can hand out whatever we are able to raise. Possibly get some VRC stickers (which I know PNosker mentioned he would send over) maybe even some VRC t-shirts. To be honest, for the dev team - I would say this would fall into the category of possibly a big enough event 1 of 2 of you would be interested in flying out here? I mean no joke - there will literally be a quarter million people there throughout the day.

So at this point I'm 100% open to any suggestions/ideas/comments. I have that VRC donation address below, which a few of you have been kind enough to donate to. Its unfortunately an old bittrex account that I don't really use (i'm more of a mintpal kind of guy) but I don't like the fact keeping the coins hot. I would have given out my personal wallet address but I don't want to co-mingle funds. So any thoughts on that would be great too.

Last thought real quick. Over the next few days I will be getting the VRC logo and website up on the official Expo 2023 website. Not only to spread the word but to hopefully instill trust within the community that I'm not just pulling some quick BS move *cough coughWizrig cough*. 100% of what gets donated will get passed out that day. I won't take a penny. All together my friends and I will be donating about 40 hours of our time - and I'm really just happy to do this because aside from owning a lot of VRC, I think it will be a fun day Smiley

tl;dr - Vericoin booth at MN State Fair in a couple weeks.
hi.. put this up in vericoinnews so its easier to spread around….will send some donations mate

I just wanted to share my buying experience on MintPal during the last few days and how I've reacted to it.  Since the sell bots immediately move the price lower everytime I've made a small buy (maybe to paint the tape downwards?), when I want to buy at a lower price I just make a few small buys before I make a larger one at the Ask while also having one or two strategically placed below the highest Bid.

thanks!
