MARS - Marscoin

The Bitcoin for Mars



"...Marscoin proposes a public funding model for space colonization based on a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency network, built on the Bitcoin code. It tackles the largely unsolved funding hurdles for mankind's space exploration efforts by establishing a global, supra-national, voluntary currency that attempts to bootstrap future Mars colonies, incentivizing adoption of the digital currency as a stake in the colonies' future economy. Individuals that invest into this "joint-stock" colony funding model elevate the exchange rate of the currency, in effect providing the early stakeholders with the funding necessary for the construction of the future base.

A copy of Marscoin, which is in essence a cryptographically secured public ledger, can then be transferred to the new colony, where it becomes the backbone of the future settlement's financial system. This proposed physical transfer of all the investments made by the early adopters of Marscoin thus not only funds the new colony ahead of time, but becomes the bedrock of the planet's growing economy. By virtue of its intrinsic algorithmic scarcity and immunity to inflation, any economic growth in the future colony will be reflected in the rising value of the currency on the new planet. As mission milestones are met, adoption rates are expected to accelerate and therefore increase the value of Marscoin. The net effect of this increasing value allows mission funding to become increasingly effective as the launch date nears.

This model creates a financial incentive for the early stakeholders to achieve progress quickly and efficiently, and for an engaged and directly involved public. Marscoin is a proof-of-concept exploring financially viable private methods in dramatically lowering the threshold for funding colonies beyond planet Earth. It directly involves the general public in space exploration as it offers tangible ownership of the project with possible future financial benefits..." (Quote from the whitepaper "Marscoin - A cryptocurrency exploring private funding to bootstrap space colonization", abstract accepted by the Mars Society for the 17th annual international Mars convention)

the old link on bitcointalk was a guest thread - this official one will allow us to communicate updates more clearly on Bitcointalk - some users on the old thread did not find our updates because of that.

I know exactly how you feel :-) Who stole our childhood dreams? 1870-1970: from horse buggy to landing on the moon ... 1970-2010 space exploration is dead in the water, FED and inflation are growing, capital misallocated :-)

But now we got spacex, MarsOne, Bitcoin ... and Marscoin - things are looking up  Cheesy

great to see a good straight forward coin without promises that the dev never intends to deliver, in short, nice non-pump and dump.

new thread? good idea Smiley
wallet (windows version) works as intended Wink

now name.
when we started (january) marscoin was 'mrs'.
now wallet and exchange (one so far, with very bad terms) using 'mars' but pools still using 'mrs'.
this could be little confusing I think.

Thanks for pointing that out - we'll update all links/resources over time but haven't completed that yet. In general the community preferred "MARS" over "MRS" and as three letter abbreviations are not a must anymore MARS with its four characters makes it easier to find. Eventually on Mars, in 2025, it will simply be known as the crypto of Mars  Tongue . Smaller units might get great names like "1 zubrin" or "10 bas" :-)
