Watching this with interest, great to see some altcoin activity in Brighton - will get something up on http://bitcoinbrighton.com/ . Flawless are doing great things with Bitcoin here, good to see them getting involved.

For some reason I get a message "Proxy access not allowed" when going to http://spacedrop.sterlingcoin.org.uk/ - any ideas? Running laetst Firefox.

Also is there any reward for a kid born on the launch day? ;-)

That's exactly as I expected but it needs to be clearly communicated on the web site.

Apart from the missing contact info and privacy statements expected of UK web sites, more attention to the wording is required. A moment's reflection will inform you that “UK” is inadequate unless you do actually intend to exclude residents of Northern Ireland.

Statements that are usefully accurate must somewhere use the mouthful: "United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland".

Elsewhere, the statement “UK citizens receive fifty Sterlingcoin” is incorrect, the checks are for residence not citizenship.

There’s two of us here, we can manage a phone number each but only one postcode - do we get 50 each or will one application be rejected? This information should be readily available and easy to comprehend.

Minors are also citizens of the UK, if there's a lower age limit for this offer, that should be clearly communicated.

“Sterlingcoin is a completely fair, transparent and a highly secure form of currency for all needs.” Provide some support for your claim of fairness. Use a spelling checker.

The OP advertises “575,000 Sterlingcoin (90% of Instamine) for the Spacedrop”. At 50 per application that's a grand total of 11500 applications. This  limit should be very clearly advertised.

Will applications from UK residents receive priority over applications from people outside the UK?

Cheers

Graham

Thank you for your input, all has been noted and we can make amendments prior to the Spacedrop going live on the 20th of September.

We are adding statistics to the Spacedrop and Faucet for all to see and can display more in depth info on how the coins are distributed.

There also is no priority on entries, they get paid instantly.

In response to your comment about me checking my spelling I believe that is actually a typo and I have amended my spelling, without a spell checker Wink

Also the Spacedrop could actually supply coins to more than 11500 people as it randomly distributes between 1 and 50 Sterlingcoin to Non-UK residents.

OK to clarify with the community and to stop people picking us up on the website having links that don't work and sections that seem incomplete.

We are in pre-launch. We are still working on the site and back-end systems prior to launch on the 20th of September.

You will see the website progress and services become active prior to the 20th.

The pre-launch was done to first secure the name as we have been working for months and are getting worried another group will release under this name.

Secondly, to listen to the community and any suggestions for the site, don't hold back, we are here to listen to you.

In terms of services, website and any other aspect to Sterlingcoin, nothing is set in stone until the 20th.

To elaborate on the fairness of Sterlingcoin, and in fact all cryptographic currencies:

A limited supply of money would allow for a better economy; where ‘better’ means ‘fairer’, more stable and devoid of government intervention.

Whatever, a spelling-checker would have prevented the error. Feel free to apply that same correction to the misspelling where it appears in the javascript “slide” presentation and above, in the OP.

You have a fair amount of text wrangling to do in order to e.g., address nonsensical statements such as “The Cryptocurrency of the UK & British Isles” by narrowing the scope of the referenced geopolitical boundaries to what's actually covered by Google's API.

Perhaps another example might help get across my point about support from a copywriter: “The price of Sterlingcoin is determined by supply & demand, usability, trading and mining” - that should be either “usage” or just “use”, not “usability”.

You can't say that it should be use or usage. Usability actually sums it up because the aim is for people to use the coin, but also describes the friendly nature and the ease it can be used with. - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usability

Thank you for your attention to detail as you were looking through our website and informing us of the error.

You obviously have an interest in the coin as you are a UK resident yourself. If you have any suggestions you can come to IRC and we can chat without a 320 second barrier.

How can UK accept this coin when HMRC realise its impact. If we buy these coins for trade why not use bitcoin instead? Limiting it to the UK market wont help it expand? This is just like Irishcoin, it never took off. If I buy this coin the donkey below would give you an idea about what he thinks.

With Sterlingcoin we are not limiting it to the UK market, it is targeted at the UK market.

We already have a merchant on board and are looking to add more prior to the wallets even being released.

Sterlingcoin is attending and giving a talk at the next Bitcoin Brighton meet up.

In terms of the HMRC you can find information on tax rulings here - http://sterlingcoin.org.uk/uk-tax-rulings/

This evening around 10/11pm UTC Matthew Langdon one of the Sterlingcoin developers will be posting.

This will outline the work we have completed and the work we are doing prior to launch.

There is a lot, so be prepared to have a lot to look over and read.

Also I cannot stress enough how important the input from the community is in the coming weeks, like I said previously, nothing is set in stone.

The website is down for free tshirts and the goolgle maps shows a market

Public info

This 3 bed freehold cottage is located at 20 Kensington Gardens, Brighton BN1 4AL. Kensington Gardens, BN1 has 18 houses and flats on it with a current average value of £249,389, compared to an average property value of £347,164 for BN1.

Yes I can, it's clear from the rest of the semantics what the semantics of the word in question should be. The semantics of English is very robust in the face of syntactic raggedness.

I'm very familiar with the term “usability” but thank you for assuming ignorance on my part and providing a wikipedia definition, that was most considerate. I'm not sure why you went to the trouble though, it is a technical term from the domain of cognitive ergonomics and is an inappropriate choice in the given semantic context of providing a non-technical explanation of possible causes of variation in the coin's price on currency exchanges.

This is a statement from the coin developers to citizens of the UK and the choice of wording should convey the semantics as intended, not some serendipitous meaning that has to be stretched beyond all plausibility in order to fit.

You're obviously highly versed in the English language and for this you must be commended. Everything you have said Graham has been duly noted and will be taken and put into effect.
I believe rather than you coming across as pointing the finger as such, you are rather being positive and trying to assist to prevent future similar concerns from the community and for this I thank you.

Just one more bit of proof that Flawless exists.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qap-IKCA680 - 56 seconds in you see the A-Board (the video is sped up and shaky)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCD-U08uQDw - 1 minute 50 seconds you see and hear Flawless and get a feel for the shopping experience down Kensington Gardens
