BLAZECOIN (BLZ)
 
Blazecoin is a mined and traded digital currency backed by the Blazecoin foundation that supports volunteer fire departments around the world.
 
BlazeCoin has an exciting future ahead of it. But before I go into the coin, let me tell you a little story. Did you know that a large majority of the fire departments in the United States and around the world are volunteer based. Some of those fire departments raise their operating expenses through bingo, door-to-door fundraising, "fill the boot" campaigns, and other creative ventures. But many fire departments are unable to raise the necessary funds due to zoning regulations and other roadblocks.
 
The average ambulance/medic unit starts at about $150,000 USD and goes up from there. The average fire engine starts at $400,000 and goes up... many times 3 to 4 times that cost. The Blazecoin foundation, which stands behind the Blazecoin, seeks to raise funds to assist these fire departments through grants for equipment and training opportunities. Blazecoin's launch included a premine of 1% which will be used for "matching-funds" during the fund drives.
 
Over the next few days, we will be opening up much more of the plan for Blazecoin. Blazecoin officially launched on May 23rd with a direct mailing to the International Fire Chief Association mailing list and was joined at launch with a number of local firefighters and volunteers.
 
So where does this 413 block reward come from? For many years, one of our developers worked as a volunteer firefighter out of station 413. This number is meaningful to him as a firefighter and we thought this would be the perfect way to honor fellow firefighters and volunteers who risk their lives on a daily basis to save others.

Thanks  Wink

They will be announced on Twitter @blazecoin - since I didn't think we were allowed to do giveaways on bitcointalk

And... all giveaways will be from my own personal account since the premine will be used just for fire department matching grants.

For those that sent me messages. (and this was posted on the other forum yesterday)  Yes, I'm the one who was the firefighter/medic for a number of years at http://dlvfrd.org - It's a hybrid station that staffs both career firefighters and volunteers 24/7 in northern Virginia.  I'll try and get clearance from the captain to post some photos of a bunch of the firefighters "mining" on their engine.
 
The main goal of this coin is to support firefighters and their stations that are NOT from my area.  Our station is in a location that has a lot of money flowing into the station.  But there are areas like in Oklahoma where a station house must get by with less than $9,000 for the entire year.  They are not allowed to have bingo or other fundraising opportunities because the casinos in the area have control of the zoning.  I'll be posting a lot more about these issues and what the coin will be working to advocate for in the coming days.  For now, I'm just finishing up some of the launch stuff.
 
But I wanted to quickly address those of you who were asking questions.  And just a few pics of me and my station...
 

(I'm the third one from the left... we're waiting around for the launch back in our Bingo hall.)
 

(And a bunch of us in front of one of our engines.... I'm the 5th one from the left/back row.)
 
Hopefully that gives a little more "reality" to just some guy talking about the fire department and crypto.

Did you know that Blazecoin has its own social network?  It is called "The Station"

http://station.blazeco.in

You can read a little bit about it before signing up.  http://station.blazeco.in/about.php

Integrated web wallets, tipping accounts, and a growing social network to help support the Blazecoin community.

You can still get all the news and important bits of information here on BitcoinTalk... but if you want to talk more fire stuff, this is a great way to do it.
