PoC detailled migration schedule

On July 18th 2017, at 10:00 CEST the new blockchain will start. Shortly after that chain admins can download the final release of the FairCoin2 wallet. The FairCoin2 wallet we've been using so far can not be used as it is beta software and does not work on the real blockchain.

Deflation in FairCoin: good or bad?

This weekend we had the opportunity to present FairCoin at the "Smart Country ThinkCamp" in the rural area Südburgenland in the village Bildein at the Austrian / Hungarian border. A question about deflation came up: If we stop coin supply with FC2, how could we also stop deflation? If there is (and hopefully will be) increasing demand for FairCoins, people will keep their FairCoins rather then spend it, as products will get cheaper in future.

FairCoin launching Proof-of-Cooperation on July 18th

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 open source experts and used on all continents for real purchases.

FairCoin is rising!

FairCoin Market demand in April2017

After almost 2 years, where all users of FairCoin, have been accustomed to an exchange rate of 0,05 € (20 Faircoin = 1 €), FairCoop' assembly has decided to raise that to 0,0667 € (15 FairCoin = 1 €) and after another market demand peak to 1:10 (10 FairCoin = 1 €).

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!

Stability in Blockchains with Cooperation

The race about next Bitcoin has started, and Faircoin is among the frontrunners. A recent analysis in TECHCRUNCH  is asking about how to get a new digital currency stable. 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:
