Introducing FastCoin – The World’s Fastest Bitcoin Alternative Gaining Traction in The Cryptocurrency Ecosystem

 

FastCoin Badge

In late May 2013 FastCoin (FST) was launched; its primary innovation being to have the fastest transaction speeds of any digital currency currently in existence. Compared to Bitcoin’s 10 minute block times the FastCoin network has just a 12 second target block time with transactions fully confirming in 48 seconds. Based on the same fundamentals as the Bitcoin protocol FastCoin is a blockchain based, decentralized, peer 2 peer worldwide digital currency with no central issuing authority. FastCoin has seen a rapid rate of adoption, with the coin’s market cap briefly reaching $250 000 USD in early August, and the official website, http://FastCoin.ca, seeing constantly increasing traffic and serving thousands of unique hits every month. The coin is backed by a team of developers and FastCoin enthusiasts from all over the world; including the USA, Europe, Australia, UK, Russia, China, Brazil, Argentina, South Africa, India and more.

Marc Saltzman, a Canadian media journalist has contacted team FastCoin and is hosting one of the FastCoin members as a guest speaker on their popular radio show “Tech Talk” this Sunday, Sept 1 at 5pm EST. Marc is a well respected Canadian Journalist that specializes in technology segments and he has been featured on CNN, Fox news, CBC and more.

The official FastCoin website, http://FastCoin.ca is based in Toronto, Canada, but the core development team consists of 10 highly qualified individuals from all over the world. The majority of the core team are primarily system engineers: seasoned veterans of the IT ecosystem, with some possessing over 25 years experience in the industry. Some members of team FastCoin possess teaching backgrounds having taught computer science at the University and College Level. Others have held relatively key positions for high profile international IT companies such as Microsoft, Symantec and ATI. FastCoin also has professionals with MBA’s and global work experience; aiding the business analysis aspects of managing the FST project. All have been actively involved in the cryptocurrency space for years; enthusiastically mining Bitcoin and participating in the emerging digital currency economy. Christopher Tao is regarded as the head developer of FastCoin and the coin’s primary creator.

Reflecting the popularity of the coin, the official FastCoin twitter account has over 10 000 followers and this is rapidly growing month after month. With its fast transaction speeds the FastCoin team is also actively targeting the mobile space and to this end they have released an Android FastCoin wallet which is currently in Beta – but functional. Due to its lightning fast transaction speeds FastCoin offers tangible benefits for merchants who accept FST as a payment method; any website or business who reaches out to the FastCoin team looking to accept FST will be warmly received.

With its highly qualified and motivated core development team, strong social media presence, rising popularity and primary innovation of being the fastest transacting digital currency in the cryptocurrency ecosystem, FastCoin has a bright future ahead. With FST having reached a market cap of $250 000 USD in early August, this is no doubt a foreshadowing of bigger things to come.

Established Multinational Investment Firm Plunges Into Bitcoin Funding Next Generation ASICs and Global Digital Currency Supercomputer Centre

Next generation Bitcoin ASIC miners From Bitmine AG

CEX.io

In early 2013 Massive Luck Investments Limited, a Hong Kong based New Technology Investment Holding Group with offices in Manila, Philippines, Shanghai, China, and Dublin, Ireland, moved aggressively into the Bitcoin space by actively funding the development of next generation Bitcoin mining ASIC technology and establishing the first Global Digital Currency Supercomputer Center. The firm has a history of successfully investing in emerging disruptive technologies. The principals and their families were the first investors in Skype, before the ubiquitous VOIP software became a household name and was subsequently bought by Microsoft Corporation for $8.5 billion. Peter Nolan, head of PR for the Hong Kong based Investment Holding Group, explained how:

We began researching investment opportunities related to digital currencies in early 2012, and by the beginning of 2013 we made a strategic decision to aggressively move into the digital currency “Wild West”. Massive Luck Investments has identified digital currencies as a future growth area for the globally regulated traditional banking sector. Digital currencies provide traceable and expedient transfer protocols for consumers, governments, and banks, with the advantage of enabling users to conduct highly secure, low cost, instant transactions. As the world’s economies increasingly turn to e-commerce and non-physical cash transactions, the global marketplace will demand further integration of digital currencies with regulated infrastructure.

Seizing the unprecedented emerging opportunities in the Bitcoin space, Massive Luck Investments currently owns a major stake in leading cryptocurrency research and ASIC hardware construction corporation Bitmine AG formerly known as Exion Networks SA and registered in Switzerland. Massive Luck Investments seeks to transfer this Swiss engineered machinery and Intellectual Property to its manufacturing and hosting facilities in Asia. Its major partners in this venture will be world leading microchip design groups Synapse, Innosilicon, and Verisilicon, and the top global microchip manufacturer, Global Foundry. Massive Luck Investments is currently in the final stages of making pre-production arrangements of ASIC chip sets, based on the most advanced existing 28-nanometre technology, with both power consumption and hashing power characteristics significantly outperforming any existing or publicly announced Bitcoin mining ASIC technology. Some of these next generation ASICs may be made available to the public, but the great majority will be utilized in their own datacenters, for industrial scale mining.

Beyond its significant investment in next generation Bitcoin mining ASIC technology, Massive Luck Investments is also presently cooperating with the Shanghai Supercomputer Center in China in conducting digital modeling and research to optimize its future digital currency research Supercomputer design. To this end the company employs a highly qualified team of software engineers, mathematicians, network security experts, and gaming industry professionals. The aim is to design and build a world-class Supercomputing digital processing center of the same caliber found in the most advanced projects in Shanghai, Switzerland, and USA. However, this will be the world’s first Supercomputer exclusively applied to the field of cryptocurrency research. The Global Digital Currency Supercomputer Center will serve as a dedicated backbone to cryptocurrency transactions and customer service worldwide.

As a side project in its foray into the world of cryptocurrency, Massive Luck Investments has designed and developed BetCoin™ Dice – a high payout online Bitcoin dice game platform. The first phase was unveiled on August 2nd, 2013 by launching the website BetCoin ™ Dice which can be found at www.betcoindice.tm. Based on the same technology behind Satoshi Dice which sold this past June for $11.5 Million USD, BetCoin ™ Dice is unique in featuring the highest instant Bitcoin payouts in the world, the highest accepted wagers and a very low house edge. The equivalent in Bitcoin of up to $1 Million USD can be won from a $15 wager. Players can win up to several thousand Bitcoin in a single bet, becoming instant millionaires. The platform operates using an embedded algorithm, which is provably fair. Utilizing the unprecedented qualities of Bitcoin, website visitors can play from anywhere worldwide as long as they have saved the list of the betting addresses, even if the website is blocked or can’t be accessed. The service offers unrivalled anonymity, transparency, and efficiency in the Bitcoin gaming sphere. The next million dollar-grade product launch is planned for the second week of August: www.betcoincircle.tm, and shortly thereafter – BetCoin ™ Dice is launching a full high-definition gaming suite that has no analogies in the Bitcoin industry which can be found at www.betcoin.tm.

The last few months have seen a number of big players aggressively enter the rapidly evolving and growing global Bitcoin space. Massive Luck Investments’ ambitious development of next generation ASICs, a Global Digital Currency Supercomputer Center, and launching the unrivalled BetCoin ™ Dice platform is no exception. It could be argued that the scope, scale and vision of Massive Luck Investments has no rival at the present time in the global Bitcoin ecosystem, as the firm moves to take advantage of the unprecedented emerging opportunities the disruptive cryptocurrency Bitcoin has made available to risk takers and visionaries worldwide.

‘The Idiot’s Guide to Bitcoin’ Book Released – Bitcoin Explained For Beginners

The Idiots Guide To Bitcoin

 

Sydney suburbanite and freelance illustrator, Gustaf van Wyk, has taken it upon himself to spread the love of digital currency by creating The Idiot’s Guide to Bitcoin: announcing its unofficial launch yesterday. It’s been a long overdue development in the Bitcoin world and represents an activist’s effort to promote and explain Bitcoin to the everyday man and his dog. The book is squarely aimed at Bitcoin beginners; covering everything they need to know to get to grips with the fundamentally disruptive technology which is Bitcoin. The Idiot’s Guide to Bitcoin comes with a 100% satisfaction money back guarantee and is currently available for the very reasonable price of 0.07 BTC or $7.77.

The stronger Bitcoin gets the more of a threat it becomes to the very institutions that have the buying power to completely disrupt and destroy it. According to the author, the survival of the digital currency revolution lies fundamentally in its widespread use as a means of exchange, not in it as an investment.

In yesterday’s short interview he said, “by giving it (Bitcoin) objective value on the street we can take a significant stand against the fight that Bitcoin will have to inevitably endure before it can truly change the world. The book, if nothing else, is a gesture towards that end.”

Written for broader society The Idiot’s Guide to Bitcoin is beautifully illustrated in full colour by the author himself and effectively clarifies all the processes and technologies required to make the most of Bitcoin on a day to day level. It has already received positive feedback from readers; though it has yet to reach the larger audience which it so enthusiastically targets. The ebook is available at http://idiotsguidetobitcoin.com, a site which will also hosts the author’s blog, but it will be made available to affiliates within the coming weeks. The author described the project as a dynamic process that will evolve alongside Bitcoin and its counterparts and said that we can expect much more work from him in the Bitcoin space in the future.

The Idiot’s Guide to Bitcoin comes with a 100% satisfaction money back guarantee and is currently available for the very reasonable price of 0.07 BTC or $7.77.

Spend Bitcoin On Everything, Everywhere With All4BTC – Automatically Purchase From eBay, Amazon And Anywhere Else Online

Spend Bitcoin On Everything, Everywhere With All4BTC- Automatically Purchase From eBay, Amazon And Anywhere Else Online

 

Based in Berlin, Germany, All4BTC was launched in April 2013: a Bitcoin service allowing consumers to purchase anything from eBay, Amazon, and anywhere else online with Bitcoin, without needing to convert coins to fiat first. Originally conceived due to the lack of spending options available for Bitcoiners in Europe, All4BTC has rapidly grown into one of the largest Bitcoin proxy purchasing services available online: now processing over 400 orders every month from customers worldwide. Differentiating itself from similar services, All4BTC is the first Bitcoin proxy buying service to utilize a fully automated system for processing customers’ Amazon and eBay orders.

All4BTC aims to make purchasing items with Bitcoin as intuitive and user friendly as possible. Amazon and eBay purchases are fully automated with All4BTC’s innovative 3 step system: the customer simply pastes in the eBay or Amazon item URL, fills in their shipping details, and sends the Bitcoin to All4BTC via Bitpay. The customer’s order is then processed automatically by All4BTC’s state of the art automatic Amazon and eBay ordering system. All4BTC’s eBay and Amazon ordering can be seen at https://all4btc.com/

Beyond revolutionizing the ease with which anyone can now spend their Bitcoin on eBay and Amazon, it is also possible to order an item from any online store worldwide by simply filling in the web form at https://all4btc.com/buy-everywhere/ . To ensure speed of fulfillment for the end user these manual orders are processed 3 times every day, during Berlin business hours.

If safety is a concern, it is no more when dealing with All4BTC. All purchases are made using only a virtual Bitcoin and physical residential address. There is no need to include any other payment information, ensuring nobody can steal credit card numbers, bank account information or even worse, identities. All purchases are secure, safe and anonymous.

With All4BTC’s automatic Amazon and eBay ordering system and 3 times daily processing of all other orders, All4BTC gives Bitcoin enthusiasts the purchasing flexibility they have dreamed of since the inception of this unprecedented cryptocurrency. It is not surprising that All4BTC is now processing over 400 orders monthly, with order volume increasing month after month. As a whole, the global Bitcoin ecosystem itself is more robust and liquid due to the innovative services and purchasing flexibility All4BTC offers to Bitcoiners worldwide.
