FairCoin launching Proof-of-Cooperation on June 27th

After two years of preparation and a lot of testing, FairCoin is now ready to move from Proof-of-Stake to the Proof-of-Cooperation mechanism. 

Ever wondered why Bitcoin consumes so much electricity? And why it is controlled by only few huge mining farms? The blockchain hype is creating many new coin alternatives, but only few have a real user community. FairCoin is driven by more than 200 activists and used on all continents for real purchases.

FairCoin is rising!

FairCoin2 development update

Hi all!

This is an update about the latest development around FairCoin2.

The core wallet received some more fixes and further optimisations, the internal data structures and the RPC-API can be considered final, and it runs very stable on different kinds of hardware and operating systems. The CVN operators on the current test blockchain do a great job in managing and updating their systems to keep them up and running all the time. Thanks guys, you're awesome!

One approach is to start with a user base for which you would like to provide a service. The digital currency can then act as a crowdfunding tool and is transporting the brand.

Another approach is to be clear on values, such as cooperation. Here they mention FairCoin:

New FairCoin logo decided

It took nearly one year: The Fair.Coop community has been working on refreshing and aligning their visual identity. Many projects have arised, web pages were made and folders printed. However, they were not recognisable as one ecosystem due to a cluttered design.

FairCoins im Kiosk des Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein

Im Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein läuft die Ausstellung "Who Pays?" mit Werken von Joseph Beuys. Lokale Aktuere sind eingeladen, einen Raum zu bespielen, in dem alternatives Wirtschaften gezeigt wird. Da gibt es eine grosse Tauschbörse, einen Kiosk mit mehr oder wenigen unnötigen Dingen und einen Gast-Kiosk als Bühne für Workshops.

Am 23.2.2017 haben Roland Alton und Caroline Pfister den Kiosk als erste Ausgabestelle für FairCoins im "Ländle" ausgestattet. Nachdem Fastnacht ist, sind die Kioskbetreuer ausnahmsweise mit Perücken unterwegs.
