The volume is a joke honestly at the moment, having a new exchange would not really benefit, being on Bittrex is good enough for exposure from that perspective I think?

Can't hurt. But I see your point, at the moment it isn't needed. Though it may offer some additional markets in other countries that Bittrex can't service? Though that's just a guess.

Yes correct, why would asia market be on bittrex? they won't they all use binance/houbi/bifinex etc....so really not being on other exchanges is preventing most of the world from buying.

I found this on wikipedia:

Counting more than seven million real-time solar monitoring stations in fifty-six countries around the globe—estimated by UN projections to grow to more than 200M over the next decade—the program has been recognized by the United Nations and the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) as the lowest carbon currency, the largest environmental monitoring experiment, and the largest private renewable energy project in the world.

This basically means it's the first cryptocurrency to be recognized by an international organisation.

Wikipedia also mentions the partnership with Cloud Constellation, stating that satellite deployment is scheduled for 2018. Can anyone elaborate on that?

Also the price is awesome right now, i have been filling my bags with SLR lately since I believe the current SLR/BTC price is very cheap. Hope so see some positive action soon  Smiley

Is there any utility for people holding or buying SolarCoin rather than speculative purposes? If I understand correctly, Solarcoin rewards users for the amount of solar generated, which may increase selling pressure. I'm just wondering as someone who doesn't have access to renewable energy what the coins could be used for.

SolarCoin: Accelerating the Energy Transition
During this year’s highly successful Intersolar Europe, SolarCoin founder and self-confessed “recreational central banker” Nick Gogerty found time to sit down with Impact4All to discuss how “the first digital currency that rewards solar electricity generators” is helping accelerate the unstoppable transition to renewables. During the interview, Nick covers a wide range of topics detailing the philosophy behind the coin and its potential for impact in the energy transition.

If I understand correctly, Solarcoin rewards users for the amount of solar generated, which may increase selling pressure. I'm just wondering as someone who doesn't have access to renewable energy what the coins could be used for.

Read my past posts here, there are 33 Million PoW coin also which have effect on the market and I would think those holders have been paid off after the rise and fall last year. Which is why you see the price decline, that kind of profit taking has wiped out the incentive. Any new holders now have to support by hedging out of their positions. But again who would buy when all claims need to sell in order to support their investment in solar. It is the reason why they would claim.

If you could use the coin to buy something it would be different but there is little market. There are other alternatives... It is all in my past posts...

I think a new strategy would be to swap out the 98 Billion and start a new chain. You can pay off the investors and then do a masternode type scenario. This could also be done at the point of origin with a meter on the actual claim. It can't be gamed since the authority is the validator of the claim. You can also use Tokens for the claim which would be used to create the masternode. Could be a great comeback of SLR!

Those 33 mill PoW coins are quickly becoming dwarfed by claims.

more people claiming Solarcoin doesn't necessarily mean that the coins are dumped on the market. People who get involved with crypto tend to understand the potential in holding depending on the current market situation. I know people who used to mine bitcoin and altcoins back in the days who were very profitable because they were able to hold on to all the mining profits and dumped when the price increased tremendously.

In my opinion people claiming Solarcoins right now would be stupid to just dump them on the market. Small individual claimers wont receive significant amounts, so why dump when you're basically getting almost nothing now. It's not worth it and I think most people will hold on the their claimed coins for now...
Even if I had a large solar farm I wouldn't dump my claimed SLR for BTC anytime soon. again its just not worth it right now. Why not hold on to something you got for free anyway. That's what I think will be in most peoples heads hence I don't believe that the selling pressure has increased because there are more claimers.

More claimers is probably a good thing for Solarcoin because it just means that that coins are being more evenly distributed to new people who probably see the potential of holding rather than dumping in the long term. This can also lead to more nodes which also strengthens the network!

I tend to agree with this ... that more claiming SLR doesn't mean more coins are being dumped. The goal of the recent partnership with SMA is to get more individual or household-sized claimant's on board. And the typical house-sized solar install might generate 1 SLR per month, if lucky. Not worth dumping. Plus, people who own solar panels, tend to be really excited about the future of solar and I would expect them to want to support projects such as SLR which only serve to further the production of solar power.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but after years of studying this project I have to side with you in some ways...You make a good point that there are too many coins on the market from the POW phase of SLR, especially when you realize that each household can only claim so many. Someone who buys off a market could hold as many coins as would be generated by a whole city or state.

All this being said, at this point so many people want to make money off crypto and its obvious they will buy anything. In my opinion, at least the REASON each SLR exists make sense, or much more so than the other crap coins out there. People had to capture power to make these even if some were POW'd into existence easier than those who claim.

POW coins may slow down the growth of SLR, but over time those who claim (and those who speculate) will drive the price up and drown out the noise from the start of the project, it just may take a bit longer than some of us expected Wink

I think this is a good project, a clear direction, worth pursuing, hope the development team can go far in the future.
The main thing is not to stop and step by step to move towards the goal !!!
I wish that at the end of the journey you will be proud of the project you are doing !!

Correct, it is a 40 year long term project using a network effect. The PoW coin is what I am getting at. It was supposed to represent previous unclaimed solar. Yet it was gained by mining. So reduce the coinbase and the claimers can then make the market by holding their coin. Yes this would be smart for them to hold. It was free. But they also want to use the coin to pay for their Solar Installations. The coin is about creating incentive for solar. So we fall back on why people would buy... Speculation is the biggest reason but there was a trap of PoW coin.

I hope that SolarCoin will be a proof of digital currency substitution based on the shares. It exploits until complete phase pow. I was very impressed with this digital currency
