It’s going to happen. Not a single person, not a single thing, has ever managed to stay number-one indefinitely. History has proven this time and time again.

Just look at Muhammad Ali, Bill Cosby, or the once dominant search engine AltaVista. They each opened doors, and experienced the sweetness of conquest, but none of them were able to forever stay on top.

On November 29th, the first cryptocurrency conference ever held on the continent of Africa will focus on introducing Goldcoin (GLD) to the people of SA. In just 10 days, prominent South African businessman and investor, Jason Swart, will be hosting the first annual SA Goldcoin Conference in “The Friendly City” of Port Elizabeth.

Swart explains why he likes Goldcoin’s potential:

"As South Africans, I truly believe Goldcoin is something we as a nation could get behind, as South Africa has always been tied to Gold and in particular another Gold coin, the Krugerrand. So to say Goldcoin makes sense to us, well is an understatement."

Swart hopes to spark a new era in cryptocurrency. An era that will see the emergence of a new competitor to the Bitcoin throne. A currency with a name that tests number one with consumers worldwide. A currency with a developer that plans to show the world just how innovative an “alternative currency” can be when creative focus is combined with raw talent.

Landmark Client

Attendees of the event will get to witness the official premier of the new Goldcoin client. Goldcoin lead developer, Amir Eslampanah, explained over Skype:

"In terms of wallet functionality, modularity, security, and sheer performance, the Goldcoin wallet will be unrivaled. Block download times will also be decreased considerably thanks to on-the-fly compression and multi-threaded download capability."

After finding the standard Bitcoin codebase unsuitable as a cryptocurrency core, Akumaburn (as he is known on the forums), set out to create something bigger, something better, something he could call his very own.

The new client will make Goldcoin the first mineable cryptocurrency built on Java, the first to rewrite the Bitcoin codebase, and the first to support multiple cryptocurrencies. In an industry that awards innovation, this new application could be just what the doctor ordered.

Goldcoin (GLD) is a popular digital currency that allows consumers to make online purchases with little to no fee. Goldcoin is currently trading at just under one cent per coin with a market capitalization of $249,807.00, according to Coinmarketcap.com.

the question is how your scam coin going to do that?
how many merchant and/or store are accepting your scam coin so far, compare to bitcoin?
i think you come up with way to strong for a scam? lol

ethereum platform references ---- nick szabo - the father of smart contracts - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nick_Szabo
gav wood - the father and creator/coder of piece of shzit etherieum platform - http://gavwood.com
butterin vitalic - the little freak scammer left to take care of broken shzit platform which he is forking nonstop - he don't even believe in crypto so is gav wood before he made millions. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1979233.80

only Neutral control systems like :

Quark

Mooncoin

Caps

others etc.

I don't doubt that Goldcoin could be there in the future, however you disabled it by those massive reward blocks then human interaction in the reward.

this human disability is also humans feature for survival.

It is expected that Ethereum will be such a currency, but it is hard to say anything before it is launched.

I don't always like Microguy's style but I certainly wouldn't call goldcoin a scam; ie the devs, have put more time, effort and money into it then they have ever gotten in return and are still at it.

Challenge bitcoin maybe not, but has a strong dev team that's stuck around for the long haul, so I think it has more upside then 99% of the other coins around here.

Didn't panic and change to whatever algo, pos etc other coins from that era went, just went its own path and depending on what this new client brings, might even win above most in the features, innovative department.

Worth keeping an eye on imho.

I sure wish I could post an update everyday without getting it deleted. Hell, I wish I could post one post about our staking hardware without getting it deleted. But we get to see Goldcoin update threads every two days

Thanks mprep. Stellar job you're doing here

It would be the currency offering consumers unique use cases. By 'unique' I mean something that consumers can't use their fiat for to buy and would be forced to convert their fiat to that crypto. No, drugs don't qualify as a unique use case.

That must been 365/2 posts about GLD, if it is the same GLD coin that shows Market Cap data reaching back into 2013.

$ 150 of it changed hands last 24h, looking pretty much dead by now. I wounder how big the gold market is, down there in South Africa.

Yes. You can earn Goldcoin (GLD) by mining it or joining the Goldcoin Forum where newbies receive 50 FREE Goldcoins just for registering.

Why would coinmarketcap be any indication of a coins health? I'd say less then 5% of the coins trades I've ever done would show up on there.

There are lots of special things about Goldcoin. Maybe you could come participate in the project and learn more.

If you are truly interested, there is a wealth of information on the forum: https://www.gldtalk.org

Could we have a list of coins where the Developer has written a complete new client? O yeh, goldcoin has!

Remember read this also.

Landmark Client

Attendees of the event will get to witness the official premier of the new Goldcoin client. Goldcoin lead developer, Amir Eslampanah, explained over Skype:

"In terms of wallet functionality, modularity, security, and sheer performance, the Goldcoin wallet will be unrivaled. Block download times will also be decreased considerably thanks to on-the-fly compression and multi-threaded download capability."

After finding the standard Bitcoin codebase unsuitable as a cryptocurrency core, Akumaburn (as he is known on the forums), set out to create something bigger, something better, something he could call his very own.

The new client will make Goldcoin the first mineable cryptocurrency built on Java, the first to rewrite the Bitcoin codebase, and the first to support multiple cryptocurrencies. In an industry that awards innovation, this new application could be just what the doctor ordered.
