** UPDATED, as of 3/2/12 **
*** I will be updating on a regular basis the status of projects listed below. There is progress, slowly but surely
I want to create a gathering of like-minded Litecoin "Angels" who want to see this coin succeed and become just as popular as Bitcoins.
Essentially, I would like to see discussions and promotion of ideas for LTC adoption in the greater Bitcoin community and/or beyond.
Along those lines, some ideas for consideration...
- Work on projects to increase the Litecoin Client Base, something like an LTC Faucet.
---- LTC Faucet
: volunteer(s) to code/design/host a 1 page front-end like BTC Faucet, appreciate LTC donors for faucet pool.
------ Update: the Litecoin Faucet is now up and running, check it out here: http://freelitecoins.appspot.com/
------ A great thanks to Bitcoinsarefun on this Forum, for taking the time and effort to make this happen!
------ If you want to donate the Faucet Pool, the LTC address is: LVjTGE71w5UQj5bedEQNoVoxcXidBAbJ1D
------ We have 61 Users who have downloaded from the Faucet, with 200+ LTC donated in the Faucet Pool. (as of 2-28-12)
- Develop online betting / gambling games that use LTC such as Poker, Blackjack (see the LiteJack21 thread)
---- LTC Poker Lounge has been started, ran into coding issues with the github poker script, on hold for while.
---- Renewed interest for LTC Poker has been shown on the this thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=66809.0 (3-2-12)
---- The LiteJack21 Blackjack game thread can be found here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=63043
- Create a better LTC/BTC/USD Exchange to encourage trading, volume, liquidity.
---- There's work being done on a P2P Crypto-Coin Exchange
, check it out: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=62879
is a decent working exchange for LTC; wonder if we could petition them to fix their slow/timing-out server issues?
- Find and develop niche markets online that could use LTCs unique currency and mining features
-------- This site provides code to embed on your web site so visitors can mine Litecoin for you with their spare CPU cycles:
Thanks to the Litecoinpool for making this available.
-------- How about a blog or forum where you give positive feedback to comments/users using cpu-mined LTC "Rewards" ?
- Develop Online / Flash Games that use LTC currency in innovative ways (revised 2-28-12)
---- There's been interesting discussion about this aspect of Litecoin, here are two LTC gaming ideas worth considering:
------- Pay-LTC-as-You-Play Online/Flash Game
------------ Put up a flash/online game on a web page, embed a javaminer script to create LTC income for the author of the game.
------------ Players of the flash game create the LTC with spare CPU cycles, with players permission.
------- LTC Reward / Treasure Online/Flash Game
------------ Create an online "mining/treasure" game where LTC is given as a reward for reaching a level, reaching your quest. Player has an
------------ LTC account while they are playing game, gaining/losing LTC as they play.
---- Building LTC-based games of this sort would go a long way to help build potential demand and prove the viability of Litecoin.
- Create Showcase online applications/businesses that use Litecoins for payment
- Incentive BTC-based businesses to adopt LTC as another form of payment
- (insert your ideas here.....)
Welcome any and all feedback.
If you gathered that I am an early adopter and have a vested interest in seeing LTC succeed, then you are correct.
