Swiftcoin?

Does anyone have more information on this? Is it Solidcoin 3.fail?

I don't see anything open or in support of full disclosure.

Meh, prone to failure. It's not open source, and it's not backed by any government.

Yes, I discovered Swiftcoin after exploring FNIB from the trade wiki. From what I could find, it seems to be a private variant of Bitcoin based on promises with none of the openly verifiable benefits.

The FNIB service may be worth a try, but I wouldn't touch Swiftcoin; buyer beware.

I got an e-mail from them asking me, if I remember correctly, if I was interested in working on their wiki.  With all the spammers using the leaked MtGox e-mail list from June 2011 I got a quick trigger finger for the delete key, but I remember it being from BNAK / Swiftcoin.

So apparently it is a real company.

They got a trademark for SwiftCoin here:

 - http://www.trademarkia.com/swiftcoin-85427714.html


From their business registration:

 - http://www.business.govt.nz/companies/app/ui/pages/companies/3473593/documents

Is the director's name.  And from there, Google pulls his LinkedIn and shows owner for 20 years of a mailbox and mail/parcel forwarding service business in the UK.

So I've no clue what they are up to.  New Zealand sure pops up a lot around here.

[Edit:

They've been accepting Bitcoin for over a year now, apparently:

Though apparently there were some stumbles early on.  And hasn't logged in since 2011:

NZ is popular for setting up shell companies for some reason. The fact their company address is a mail forwarding business seems to point that way. Their business address isn't far from where I am. If I went to the building and looked do you think I'd see what they show in their company photo's, or just a shell company plaque?

If they have offices and aren't using them, why not invite your friends over and have a little party? Or move in for a while. No one would know and it would make for a great blog Wink

Their NZ phone number is a Skype purchased "online number" based on the first few digits (889 xxxx comes from Skype) so they could be anywhere in the world.
