CoinPot: 7 Faucet sites to earn free cryptocurrencies

A group of top-of-the-range Faucet sites that will make you earn free cryptocurrencies quickly: Bitcoin, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, Dogecoin and Dash. In this article we would like to describe in detail how this small group of faucet sites that rely on a single online microWallet: Coinpot. In our opinion, by far the most practical and famous of all the sites in the category for earning free cryptocurrencies.
Before reading, we recommend reading the introductory article of our blog in order to better understand some terms and already own an indispensable personal multi-currency wallet.
To earn cryptocurrencies, the first thing to do is sign up at the following link: https://coinpot.co No personal data is required, only the email address.
As for the first 5 "Moon" sites, it will be sufficient to log in with the same email with which you signed up for Coinpot and you can immediately make the claim (always alternate reCaptcha and SolveMediaCaptcha). You will be free to choose whether to make a daily claim or several claims throughout the day. The minimum waiting time between one claim and the next is 5 minutes.
Once you have made the first claims you will be able to see the crypto earned automatically credited to your Coinpot wallet. We will explain its functions in detail below.
Follow this advice to Earn even more Cryptocurrencies ... And these are the top 5 Coinpot-related faucet sites. Always remember to log in by following the links we have reported. The greater the number of referrals you will bring, the greater your earnings. The "Moon" sites in addition to guaranteeing you a 25% of the amount of each claim made by your referrals, will give a 1% bonus (up to a maximum of 100%) to the claims you make with your account. Our advice is to create a main desktop account and a secondary mobile account in order to personally verify the real functioning of the system. Your personal referral link will be shown to you by clicking on the refer link located at the top of the page.
2 more Faucets join the Moon galaxy! In addition to the 5 sites mentioned above, there are 2 others that offer almost identical efficiency and functions: BonusBitcoin and BitFun. To earn free cryptocurrencies in this case you will need to sign up using the email address as done previously on Coinpot. Use the same credentials.
The referrals program is exceptionally profitable as it offers a 50% bonus of every claim made by your subscribers. Even with a few subscribers, you will notice a steady increase in the cryptocurrencies you earn.
BonusBitcoin can occasionally be annoying but still offers a daily bonus on the total claims made. The waiting time on this site is 15 minutes and the link to the personal Referral is available in the center of the page. Under the "Claim Now" button there is also another option: "Change your claim setting".
Selecting it will open a small window: putting the check mark on "Always receive the average claim amount" you will always earn the same number of Satoshi for each claim while leaving it empty you will have the opportunity to earn 5,000 Satoshi with a single claim. The downside is that in the meantime you will get a lower average prize.
Bitfun is by far our favorite Faucet site because it rewards with relatively high amounts and requires very little time to make the claim. The time interval on Bitfun is identical to that of the "Moon" sites: 5 minutes. You will find the Personal Refer link under Account.
Brief explanation on how the Coinpot MicroWallet works. After this roundup of sites we want to quickly explain how the Coinpot microWallet works. In the main interface you will be shown the 5 cryptocurrencies that you can earn: BitCoin, BitCoin Cash, Dash, DogeCoin and LiteCoin. As you may have noticed, Tokens are not supported.
In the drop-down menu of each Coin you can decide whether to deposit crypto in the microWallet, transfer them from the microWallet to your personal wallet, convert them all into a single crypto (to more quickly reach the minimum transfer amount on the personal wallet), undermine them with your PC or view the latest transfers confirmed by Coinpot.
As for the Coinpot Tokens, the menu offers the possibility to convert them into other crypto, mine them with the PC or participate in 2 games of luck. Coinpot Tokens will be given to you in the order of 3 at a time for each of your claims made or 1 for each claim made by your referrals.
A very useful section of news and updates is also available and fortunately there are very few banners.
Last in terms of innovation, the Challenges, which you can select on the left in the summary menu. In practice, following a certain number of shares (claim, conversion of crypto, purchase of lottery tickets, etc ...) you will be given stars. The Challenges can be daily, monthly or linked to the achievement of a specific goal.
Each star will guarantee you an additional 100 Coinpot Tokens.
At the end of the challenges / Challenges period, lasting 30 days, those who have collected the highest number of stars will receive an additional maxi-prize in Coinpot Tokens.
Finally, we remind you that for each transfer to the outside you will be sent an email requesting confirmation that will be valid for 30 minutes. After this period of time you will have to carry out the operation again and no amount will be lost.
Keep following us! All the articles will always be dedicated to cryptocurrency faucets other than the previous ones that will allow you to quickly increase your earnings.

CRYPTOPUZZLER INFO (Also found on the wiki)

This information explains the information regarding the puzzles that could be helpful to those trying to solve them. It also explains how you can support the puzzles. It will be updated regularly.
How do the puzzles work?
The idea is I write short stories/themes that contain all the seed words. These are hidden in the story in a variety of ways (codes, numbers, plain sight, riddles, clues, etc etc), this is likely to get more complicated as time goes on but for now is remaining relatively simple. I think I will also be adding brain teasers that will be significantly easier with much lower prizes. For these rather than making a wallet, I will operate by sending dogecoins to the first correct comment (with a bonus if the winner explains their method to find the answer)
How often will you post puzzles?
I'll be posting these as soon as they've been created and checked. Even if the previous one has not been solved I will be posting new ones. I will leave about a month between posting, so people don't find themselves flicking between puzzles but after a month if its ready, a new one will be uploaded. By having multiple puzzles here to be attempted, I am hoping people will be encouraged as theres more opportunities to win. I think I might post easier brain teasers with small prizes (around the 50 doge mark) just to encourage participation.
This all seems a bit chaotic, is there no organisation system? I have used flairs to organise, 'puzzle', 'clue' and eventually 'solution' once they're solved. I'm still learning how to organise things on reddit but I assure you, it will be done.
How will puzzles be funded?
The first one has been funded through /dogecoinbeg and my own private funds, I am hoping for donations once I've published a few puzzles to help me fund future ones. I also use faucets to fund them. If you want to support my puzzles without donating, I would highly appreciate you using my referral links which I will publish below.
How do we know this isn't a scam?
Part of the reason I'm planning on keeping puzzle prizes low for the time being is so people aren't afraid to donate ie the value is too low to be worth scamming for. Also, creative writing is the highest effort way of scamming I can possibly think of.
Can I support without donating?
Absolutely yes! Liking, commenting and sharing are the best ways to show support. I want to grow a puzzle community on here and the only way I can do that is with the support of you guys! Also, feedback. Whether in comments or private messages I will respond to any feedback and suggestions. Another way to support these puzzles is using the referral links below! Instead of donating, that enables you to earn and me to fund my puzzles with the referral earnings, win win! The more people using the referral links, the higher the potential prizes so if anything, I hugely encourage you to use them.
How do you decide how much the prize is?
It will be based on difficulty level, once I've worked out how to gauge that.
Will prizes always be in dogecoin?
No, probably not. I am planning on a puzzle with a bitcoin prize but that will be significantly more difficult. Dogecoin puzzles I am creating because I enjoy it and I think dogecoin is painfully underrated (Lets be real, its v fast and its got doge in the name, says it all really)
Referral links to fund doge puzzles (All of these are linked to my personal doge wallet which will fund puzzles):
Cointiply - this is a website and android app faucet. You earn coins through the hourly free coin spin, watching ads and completing surveys and can withdraw in either doge or bitcoin.

Mobile referral link https://cointiply.mobi/21muWebsite referral link http://cointiply.com/kVPK6
Moondoge - the moon faucets are pretty popular, you just click whenever you want and the coins go to you coinpot wallet, I get a 1% referral bonus per person that signs up so thats again, pretty good to earn to fund my puzzles Referral link http://moondoge.co.in/?ref=D941AC8F3D5A
The rest of the moon faucets: All referral earnings from these will be converted to dogecoin and put into the prize wallet when the faucet reaches 100 dogecoins as this is the minimum withdrawal amount.

The crypto faucet - one click a day earns between 0.3 to 600 dogecoins and can withdraw at 10 dogecoins. Using my referral earns the prize fund 50% of whatever you earn. https://www.thecryptofaucet.com/?r=67361 The balance from this faucet will be added to whatever prize wallet is in use every time it surpasses 200.
Referral links to support me (Obviously it's good fun creating puzzles which is a reward in itself but if you do enjoy these puzzles please use these links to support me): Freebitco.in - this is a faucet that also has a highelower game, betting and interest over 30,000 satoshis. I currently use it to grow interest on past faucet earnings so if you want to help me grow my holding please sign up and use https://freebitco.in/?r=38129961
Publish0x - Basically here I'm currently publishing articles on the faucets I use to try and gain more income from referrals to fund the puzzles. If you sign up to the site and tip authors, I receive a 5% referral bonus from the tip. This is greatly appreciated and eventually I will be using this site to explain different codes I've used in these puzzles https://www.publish0x.com?a=5xe73yQje7
Resources to help you crack puzzles:
This list will basically contain sites that I've either used to help code things and sites I've used when trying to break my codes from scratch (when trying to think like someone who hasn't seen it before).

Best Bitcoin Faucets

Best Bitcoin Faucets
Bitcoin faucets are websites or applications that offer you a small amount of bitcoin as a reward for making easy tasks. Depending on the selected faucet, users can earn coins for completing various tasks, such as viewing certain websites, watching ads, entering a captcha, or playing a game.
by StealthEX
At the beginning of the cryptocurrency’s existence, when the stakes were not so high, the creators of faucets gave 5 bitcoins for each claim — back then it was their way to promote digital money among newcomers. Now faucets operate with much smaller amounts and give out some part of the Bitcoin, which is measured in Satoshi(named after the creator of Bitcoin). Satoshi is the smallest possible fractional number of Bitcoin — one BTC is equal to 100 million Satoshi.
If you have ever left a water tap not completely closed, you probably noticed that water was dripping into it, and if you put a bowl under it, sooner or later it will be filled. Even though one-time payments on faucets are scanty, many advise not to neglect the opportunity to earn on them, because, with the right approach, faucets can bring a tangible profit with a minimum of effort.
There are plenty of sites offering free bitcoins. Unfortunately, most of them are not trustworthy, do not live long, or are simply overflowed with annoying flashing ads. However, there are some that work for many years, used by thousands of users and considered reliable.
Here is the list of them:

Freebitcoin

This faucet is probably the most well-known one. It was created in 2013 on the territory of the British Virgin Islands. Payouts are not fixed and vary for each claim. You can get cryptocurrency every hour, and for each claim you get from 0.00000030 to 0.03 BTC. In addition to the faucet, Freebitcoin allows you to earn in other ways — save interest on your deposit, play the lottery, invite new users via referral links.
It supports several withdrawal methods: you can set up automatic withdrawal every Sunday, slow withdrawal every 6–24 hours, or use the fastest instant withdrawal that takes 15 minutes. The last one, of course, has the highest fee.

Moon Bitcoin

Founded in 2015, the Moon Bitcoin has a certain user base and is considered by many to be one of the best faucets in existence.
There are many appealing bonus offers. For example, the site gives you a reward for consistency — if you enter a captcha at least once every day, you will accumulate a bonus +1% to earnings daily. Like most other faucets, Moon Bitcoin offers a bonus for bringing new users.
Earned funds are instantly transferred to the linked Coinpot wallet. The minimum withdrawal amount is 10,000 Satoshi if you agree to pay the fee. Or wait until it’s going to be over 50,000 Satoshi on your account and withdrawal money for free. It is worth saying that Coinpot has its own bonus program. For example, for one captcha entry, you get 3 Coinpot tokens that can also be converted to cryptocurrency.
There are also Moon faucets for Litecoin, Dash, Bitcoin Cash and DogeCoin. All payments are concentrated in one Coinpot account.

Bonus Bitcoin

Bonus Bitcoin is one of the oldest services and is considered one of the best bitcoin faucets. You can request a new portion of free coins every 15 minutes, getting an average of 10 Satoshi per claim. You can also gain more coins completing tasks in the offers and surveys section.
Users who regularly stay active for a number of days receive an additional 5% of their daily rewards. The site also gives 50% of all fees of users you invited using referral links.
Bonus Bitcoin accounts are also connected to Coinpot, a micro-earnings wallet that accumulates your payouts. The site also provides the opportunity to earn Litecoin and Dogecoin.

Bitfun

This is one more faucet associated with Coinpot wallet. Bitfun started its work in January 2017. In addition to the faucet itself, which allows you to request free Satoshi every 3 minutes, the site has a large number of browser games of various genres. Progress in these games gives you additional earnings. You can also earn coins by completing offers.
As with Bonus Bitcoin, the user receives 50% of the fees of their referrals.

Cointiply

The service was launched in 2018 and has become known as one of the best free bitcoin generators. There are several ways to claim Satoshi. In addition to the faucet, you can also earn bitcoins by watching videos, clicking on ads, and playing browser games.
Here you can make claims once every 12 hours and get a certain number of Coins to your account. Coins are the inner currency of this service, 10000 Coins worth 1$. It converted to Satoshi at the time of withdrawal.
Rewards can be collected at FaucetHub, another web wallet for micropayments, in this case, the withdrawal limit is 35,000 Coins. For amounts over 100,000 Coins, withdrawals can be made directly to your bitcoin wallet. Or you can keep Coins at the site and earn 5% interest.
Users can earn a loyalty bonus, by claiming rewards every day. Bringing another user via referral link gives you 25% of their claims and 10% of their offer earnings.

Pentafaucet

PentaFaucet is one of the oldest and most stable bitcoin faucets today. The main difference from similar websites is that the site uses double protection: captcha and anti-bot. You can collect from 5 to 25 Satoshi every 5 minutes. A reasonable amount of advertising and a simple interface make working with the faucet comfortable.
The faucet does not allow you to earn money from games, surveys, and other sponsorship services. In addition to the main method, it offers only a referral program, giving 10% from earnings of each new user.
Earned Satoshi are instantly transferred to the FaucetHub wallet. You can withdraw your funds from FaucetHub to your bitcoin wallet once a week on Sundays.

FireFaucet

FireFaucet is a multi-currency automatic faucet, perhaps the best of its kind. This resource allows you to earn 9 cryptocurrencies at the same time, as well as instantly withdraw the accumulated funds to the Faucet Hub.
The Auto Claim function allows for collecting currency automatically. You can change the number of currencies to get and the time between collections.
FireFaucet affords many different ways to earn money: in addition to the faucet itself, there are also offers, a referral system that gives 20% from newcomer’s income, and browser mining. FireFaucet also has its own unique level system: getting XP for various actions on the site and raising their level, users receive a reward in Satoshi.
As a pleasant addition, FireFaucet has a nice-looking design and does not use pop-up ads.

DailyFreeBits

This bitcoin faucet does not require registration. All you need is the public address of your BTC wallet. Users can claim Satoshi every hour, getting from 5 to 1200 each time.
At the moment DailyFreeBits is using the FaucetHub wallet we are already familiar with. The resource offers a referral reward. By inviting new users to the website, you can regularly receive 10% of their earnings.
These are probably the best bitcoin faucets at this point. Do not expect that you will earn loads of money just using faucets, but it is with no doubt an interesting and easy way to get a certain portion of free Satoshi and learn how the cryptocurrency and various wallets work.
Always be careful and study every site that is claimed to be a Bitcoin faucet with some scepticism. Always be critical of your choice and read reviews.

How to accept Dogecoin with your business, and why. A few pointers.

THE UPDATED VERSION OF THIS POST CAN BE FOUND HERE.
You are a business owner and sell goods or services. You heard about Dogecoin. You wonder how you can use it in your business. This thread is for you.
If you have no idea what Dogecoin is, read up on it here (click). In short, it is a digital currency that is perfect for everyday use. Read on if you want to know why it would be good for your enterprise.
Why should I accept payments in Dogecoin? 
Dogecoin offers you:
Dogecoin can be exchanged to national currencies. You can do this easily by yourself or use the automatic conversion offered by some payment processors (all is explained further down). You can also just keep your Dogecoin and spend it or offer it to your employees! :)
Dogecoin is fun and it gets ever more useful the more people like you use and accept it. There are other merchants who have gone this path before you - you can read interviews about them and their experiences on this blog. You can also talk with other merchants in /dogevendors, check out these testimonials ([1, 2], 3), search this subreddit and post any questions you have right here!
I want to accept donations. What are my options? 
Just download the client and put up the wallet address up on your page with donation info. Done! That's it! If you want something snazzy, check out this widget or this one (or this one) (or this one).
If you need to track who sent you how much money (for goodies and that), you could ask that donators tell you that they're sending you a very specific amount of coins (e.g. 100.424242), and match it to their name. However, this can be abused as your transaction history is public. If you're actually selling stuff, check out the next section instead.
I sell stuff online. What are my options? 
You have a lot! It boils down to one of these:
The last option can be interesting if you don't have your own web store, are selling digital goods and/or are just selling on as a side business. If your business is your main income, handling payment yourself is probably better.
1) Manually processing transactions
All you need for this is a Dogecoin wallet. You simply generate a payment address for each of your customers, send it to them and confirm that your coins arrived at the address. This is super fast to set up and there is absolutely no commitment.
If you just want to try it out before investing a lot of effort, just set up a wallet (either with the Dogecoin desktop client or an online wallet (listed under Browser "here") and let your customers know that they can now pay with Dogecoin. You can use some of these buttons if you wish( 1 2 3 4 5) and browse this asset repository of useful artwork. The graphical interface is still being developed, but you can browse the files and find license information already :)
2) Automatically processing transactions
Check out the section on APIs and payment processors further down!
3) Selling stuff through a 3rd-party site
There are a number of sites that function a lot like eBay, Etsy and Xmart. You enter your products and they handle the payment and web store stuff. This is most convenient if you have digital goods to sell (music, books...) and want to send them out automatically.
If you are an Etsy user who wants to accept Dogecoin, click here.
I sell from a physical store or location. What are my options? 
All you need is an internet connection in your store and a web-capable device, such as a mobile phone, cheap tablet or a nearby PC. On-site, your customers can send you coins using their phone, or you can sell coupons for your goods online in advance.
DogePos is a point-of-sales app that is open source and Koupah announced that they will accept Doge as well. You can use or apply for all of these tools right now! Either way, all you need is a way to 1) convert a USD price into Doge, and to 2) check that the coins have arrived in your wallet.
To check your wallet balance and Doge prices, you can use the app MyDOGE oniPhones and iPads, and this app on Android devices. This is one of many useful price converter websites you can bookmark. Checking your balance on the PC can be done with the wallet client.
If you want to sell your goods or coupons for them online, it might be easiest use a ready-made stores capable of digital distribution. Check point "3)" in the above section for some options.
Dogecoin payment processors, APIs, checkouts 
Currently, the established platforms accepting Dogecoin seem to be these:
I'm trying a tentative summary here to save you some research, but I'd appreciate comments a lot. None of the three have setup or monthly fees (except some optional subscriptions).
GoCoin:
Coinpayments:
You can probably find people who have used one of these in this thread. This guy volunteered his code for automatic currency conversion and his help setting up the plugin for OpenCart, for example!
If you are tech-inclined, you could run your own payment server with dogecoind and an API like this. This is not yet ready for laypeople though, so don't do that unless you want to get messy.
Exchanging Doge to USD/EUGBP/other national currencies 
If you don't have your payment processor do it for you, at some point you will want to get your Doge converted to your currency of choice, which you should do at an exchange. Keep in mind that you will have to get registered and verified at the exchange, which can take up to a week.
Transfers to and from national currency can take a few days, but trading and transferring digital currencies is very fast and usually near-instant. The following exchanges let you trade your Doge for national currency directly (last updated Sep 17):
If your currency is not listed above, you can either sell your Doge here, or exchange them to Bitcoin and then sell those. I find Kraken (EUR, KRW, USD) to be the best option for EUR, but you can sell Doge for BTC on all of the exchanges mentioned above, or choose one from this list. To sell BTC for national currency, you can also go to Justcoin or LocalBitcoins. There are many similar sites - just pick the one you like best!
Things get developed incredibly fast and Dogecoin is not even a year old. This will only get easier, so keep checking back! Justcoin is looking to trade Dogecoin to national currency, and others are sure to follow.
Alright! How do I promote my business now that I accept Dogecoin? 
Note that there's a collection of Dogecoin artwork and assets for you to use in this repository, complete with license information so you can design your promotions and website with it.
1) Submit your business to these directories:
2) If you are a brick-and-mortar store, mark your business on these maps [1, 2]. Post if you have problems!
3) Make a promotion post in one of these subreddits:
You will get views, especially if you offer an interesting product or a Doge-related promotion. Hint: the best promotion is to offer a few % off for all Dogecoin purchases. Also post and comment to this just to discuss your plans and ask your questions. Come talk to us here and in /dogevendors, we are a fun community :)
This post is not updated anymore. Check the thread linked at the top of this post for the newest version. The last big edits were on Aug 4 (DogeAPI, Prelude) and Sep 17 (Updates on exchanges and websites) and Oct 22 (Moolah).

It's Time to Let Everyone in on Litecoin's Biggest Secret

Fellow Consumers,
It's possible that you might be getting a little upset at the current BTC fees. Please assist me in sending, or editing as you see fit, this drafted outline and email to whichever business you feel would benefit from using Litecoin instead. Or you can make a video, or tweet the link, or 100 other things. Just help in bringing attention to Litecoin in BTC's mempool time of need. It's time they learned Litecoin's biggest secret .... It’s THE BEST payment method out there. Also, please support businesses that currently accept Litecoin. I've put together a list below the draft.
........................................................................................................................................
BEGIN EMAIL DRAFT
To whom it may concern,
Has your company ever considered receiving the alternative payment currency Litecoin?
To begin, you may already be accepting bitcoin and Litecoin is very similar to bitcoin. If you're unfamiliar with bitcoin as a currency then Litecoin is a great place to start. They are even built from the same Core coding. A benefit to Litecoin is that it has a 2.5 minute block time instead of bitcoin's 10 minutes. This makes Litecoin's transaction speed four times faster and much less expensive than bitcoin. In layman's terms, this just means payment is confirmed faster and less expensively with Litecoin.
For reference - you can see the average fee of both bitcoin and Litecoin in US Dollars compared here: https://bitinfocharts.com/comparison/transactionfees-btc-ltc.html#1y
This chart shows the average fee for Litecoin is staying around 10 to 20 cents, and bitcoin bouncing between a low of $1.50 and $8.00 recently. This means you would pay less in fees to convert the same total value into fiat or USD in this case.
If you were to compare this to the average credit card transaction fees, of say 2.5%, any transaction over $5.00 would be more profitable through Litecoin.
Reference of fees found here: https://www.cardfellow.com/average-fees-for-credit-card-processing/#Typical
If you've heard of Litecoin, I'm sure you have heard the saying "Litecoin is the silver to bitcoin's gold." But really, Litecoin should really be considered Platinum instead of silver. Platinum is stronger, more durable, and much more ductile. Over 20% of all consumer goods either contain platinum or are produced using platinum. Platinum is truly an enduring metal just as Litecoin is truly an enduring cryptocurrency. It will be 6 years old this October, bitcoin is 8 years old.
A few facts that demonstrate Litecoin's strength, durability, and ductility are listed below:
  1. Litecoin has a large economy and your current bitcoin technology should work on Litecoin with very little changes. If you don't use bitcoin, it is still easy to implement.
  2. Litecoin has the best combination of economic size and technical similarity to bitcoin than any other cryptocurrencies.
  3. Litecoin is capable of eight times as many transactions as bitcoin in a ten minute period.
  4. Litecoin has much faster confirmation times with blocks that are not full.
  5. Litecoin has proven its longevity compared to many other cryptocurrencies that have come and gone.
  6. Also, if changes ever need to be made to Litecoin, it doesn't take years to implement them. Litecoin implemented Segregated Witness before bitcoin, and will most likely run on the lightning network before bitcoin as well. If you don't deal with bitcoin, this all just means Litecoin is a front runner in implementing new technology and features.
  7. Litecoin is a limited supply coin, launched fairly, with no coins premined (no developer is hiding a majority somewhere), nor has it ever hard forked for any special interest groups. It is decentralized and no one person or group controls what happens to it and no one person or group can manipulate the market.
  8. Whole Litecoins are much more affordable than whole bitcoins. This helps eliminate some psychological barriers to entering the market.
In conclusion:
If your company was to accept Litecoin, I would be happy to start conducting my business with you.
If your company accepts bitcoin payments but not Litecoin, I hope I have helped shed some light on the benefits Litecoin could bring to your business.
If your business does not accept bitcoin payments, I hope I have introduced you to an alternative payment option that a large number of people transact with everyday who would love to add you to their list of merchants accepting Litecoin. It really is the currency of the future.
If you have any questions about Litecoin or need help in possibly implementing Litecoin into your business, please let us know. There are many of us here excited to help you transition into accepting Litecoin or to help you further and answer any questions you may have.

Slack log for Ark token's value proposition discussion 16-07-18

Please find below a log of the discussion we had in slack regarding the ark token's value proposition. Some of the community members who happen to be long term holders of ark feel that the ark token's value proposition isn't clearly communicated by the team so they asked about it. I'm posting the entire discussion it here to make a permanent record since slack wipes messages after a while.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
arigard [7:21 PM]
Hey team, so I'm curious. Is there any update on a new white paper at all that was being mentioned? I've been holding Ark since it hit Bittrex and I personally don't really have a clear idea about how the token is going to work in the overall picture, or what really the direction is for the project once v2 is out. It feels like things have gone a bit flat recently, are there any updates on direction and what the plan is once V2 is live? Is there any idea about when it might go live? Or how the Ark token will fit into the economy (will it be a gas?). I see a lot of other projects i'm invested in coming up with very clear roadmaps/dates and direction about what they want to be and I still personally feel Ark's message is a little confused and hard to read especially for people who are not coders/developers.
rob [ Ark Labs ] [7:22 PM]
the roadmap is on the site, arkdirectory.com/kits has nice presentations and other goodies
roks0n (deadlock) [7:23 PM]
@Matthew_DC mentioned a couple of days ago that he’s preparing several blog posts which should explain most of these @arigard
rob [ Ark Labs ] [7:23 PM]
the Blog also goes into lots of v2 details
Djenny Floro (Ark Tribe) [7:24 PM]
Hi everyone.
rob [ Ark Labs ] [7:24 PM]
Ark is Ark, not like Eth with gas, hence no gas.
Hey @Djenny Floro (Ark Tribe) welcome back
Djenny Floro (Ark Tribe) [7:24 PM]
Hey rob, hi Rok :slightly_smiling_face:
roks0n (deadlock) [7:25 PM]
Rob, I think he means how everything will be connected with ArkVM etc.
similar conversation as the one few days ago (edited)
Djenny Floro (Ark Tribe) [7:25 PM]
It's been a while, but I was head on in the project, sorry for not showing more often.
arigard [7:25 PM]
Yeah my main question is really I still don't know what will give the actual Ark token value .
goldenpepe [7:25 PM]
we dont know how the arkvm will work
All we can do is wait

roks0n (deadlock)
definitely, I’m not blaming anyone :slightly_smiling_face: Was just curious if there were any developments in terms of the updated whitepaper because I was reading one of the threads on reddit from 6 months ago where it was mentioned you’re looking to hire someone write it up.
Posted in #generalJul 12th
arigard [7:26 PM]
And I kind of feel this is such a big elephant in the room for people in the long run.
roks0n (deadlock) [7:26 PM]
click on the link and read from that post on (edited)
arigard [7:26 PM]
ok
Djenny Floro (Ark Tribe) [7:27 PM]
I saw that there has been some drawbacks with the V2 ?
(Not sure if it's exact, I only came a few times and seemed to understand it was so)
goldenpepe [7:28 PM]
There are just some incompatibilities between v1 and v2 in devnet
which is why devnet is currently down
rob [ Ark Labs ] [7:28 PM]
ArkVM may be unnecessary as more modern approaches to handling contracts are available, one of the main issue is having them be distributed just like the tokens.
goldenpepe [7:28 PM]
There's a community run v2-only devnet though #devnet_unofficial
rob [ Ark Labs ] [7:28 PM]
it's more like drawback with v1
arigard [7:30 PM]
I mean I've seen a lot of stuff in that discussion discussed over the past year and there still seems to be no concrete answers coming out and that is a bit of worry to me personally. It makes it look like the team doesn't even know. I think most that know of Ark understand it wants to create an easy way to deploy blockchains and work as a platform and have some inoperability options. But the fundamentals of how that work right now seems to be up in the air. In other projects I know what gives those tokens value, but in Ark I don't, so it's hard for me as an investor to really sell to someone else the benefits of the token when there is a big question mark still on it.
rob [ Ark Labs ] [7:33 PM]
do you know that Ark Deployer has been available for quite some time?
arigard [7:34 PM]
Yes, that doesn't really answer any questions though.
mak [7:34 PM]
Ark deployer helps the main chain's business case somehow?
arigard [7:35 PM]
What gives Ark token actual value? Like what is the reason people need to buy and hold the Ark token? That is my question.
Djenny Floro (Ark Tribe) [7:36 PM]
@mak what you're saying is kinda like answering you can use a hammer when asked what a nail do.
arigard [7:36 PM]
You don't need to buy the Ark token to deploy a chain. You can just do it.
Djenny Floro (Ark Tribe) [7:36 PM]
I mean, the Ark Deployer doesn't answer what's the Ark.
mak [7:36 PM]
@Djenny Floro (Ark Tribe) my point was directed towards rob's comment. I think you misunderstood it.
Djenny Floro (Ark Tribe) [7:37 PM]
@mak My bad then. I apologize.
Blockhunter [7:38 PM]

rob [ Ark Labs ] [7:38 PM]
" I think most that know of Ark understand it wants to create an easy way to deploy blockchains and work as a platform and have some inoperability options. But the fundamentals of how that work right now seems to be up in the air."
This is why I wrote that.. there is no mystery of how that works. You are mistaken or uninformed.
arkenstone [7:38 PM]
That's the problem here because team is programming orientated but there hasn't been alot done on business aspect of the token and marketing investor point big view
mak [7:38 PM]
That only explains the value of the ark codebase not the blockchain though
arigard [7:38 PM]
I think you seem to be trying to turn the argument in a seperate direction.
It's a simple question.
What gives the Ark token value.
rob [ Ark Labs ] [7:39 PM]
The market does. It's on 19 different exchanges.
arigard [7:39 PM]
Seems like you are being unhelpfully obtuse. I'll rephrase.
roks0n (deadlock) [7:39 PM]
so one thing that is clear to me is interoperability using ACES, where ARK is used as a “middleman” between two different chains, so if there’s high volume between those chains, it means the volume of ark increases as well .. what I’d like to know is how things will work with arkvm and how it will all work with sidechains (on eth, all the side chains will basically link back to the main chain which will be the one responsible for security afaik?)
arigard [7:39 PM]
What gives the Ark token value in the Ark ecosystem.
Blockhunter [7:40 PM]
Vote for Pedro he will make all your dreams come true
arigard [7:40 PM]
Eth is a gas, Waves is a gas. Ark is... what?
mak [7:40 PM]
ACES can work with any chains though. Doesn't have to be ark main chain. So I guess tomorrow persona can become the settlement layer for the Ark ecosystem and there's no incentive to stop it from happening.
arigard [7:40 PM]
^
roks0n (deadlock) [7:41 PM]
Mak, correct but if there are already lots of chains connected between ARK, it will be more appealing to link it through ARK directly
Djenny Floro (Ark Tribe) [7:41 PM]
As I understand it, ACES could be using any given blockchain as the middle man...
roks0n (deadlock) [7:41 PM]
it doesn’t mean that it can’t be copied tho
arigard [7:41 PM]
But there are no chains connected through Ark atm
That have any real value anyway
roks0n (deadlock) [7:41 PM]
eth and btc are
arigard [7:41 PM]
And they can be connected through any Ark clone.
bangomatic [7:41 PM]
I'd love to hear the Ark team chime in on this discussion
arigard [7:42 PM]
So anyone can come along and make another chain that can instantly overtake Ark at this present time if there isn't a failsafe reason for Ark to be the defacto currency.
rob [ Ark Labs ] [7:42 PM]
https://arkecosystem.slack.com/archives/C2ABRLZB8/p1531762883000422 you can't keep saying things like this as if they are true.
arigard
That have any real value anyway
Posted in #generalToday at 7:41 PM
Blockhunter [7:42 PM]
Interoperability to the moon
mak [7:42 PM]
"it will be more appealing to link it through ARK directly"
Currently Ark is the only mature chain because it's been around longer but the moment persona or some other bridge chain gets listed on an exchange that dynamic is no longer there. So why would you prefer Ark over persona when that happens. That's the question as far as I understand it. (edited)
rob [ Ark Labs ] [7:43 PM]
Persona has other goals, not duplicating Ark goals
Djenny Floro (Ark Tribe) [7:43 PM]
@bangomatic Hi!
arigard [7:43 PM]
What current sidechain of Ark has real value/position in the crypto market? Persona?
bangomatic [7:43 PM]
hey @Djenny Floro (Ark Tribe)!
mak [7:43 PM]
The blockchain as a transaction medium doesn't care about secondary goals.
It still has all the capabilities that Ark has.
Colby [7:43 PM]
What has value right now? :thinking_face:
rob [ Ark Labs ]

Ark's ecosystem at present is not big enough to be a reason not to just take the tech and start your own.
To think otherwise is ludicrous.
rob [ Ark Labs ] [7:44 PM]
that's a fine opinion
Jarunik [7:44 PM]
it is harder than you think :slightly_smiling_face:
arigard [7:44 PM]
We aren't Eth with multi $100mn + start ups and even if we were, what's currently to stop one of those just overtaking Ark and leaving it behind?
Jarunik [7:45 PM]
i hope some ark clones get really sucessful to be honest :slightly_smiling_face:
Colby [7:45 PM]

mak [7:45 PM]
Same here but then there's no reason to hold Ark over something else
arigard [7:45 PM]
i hope so too if there is some reason for Ark to always be there at the top considering it's the Ark platform.
Colby [7:45 PM]
But the thing is that I am wondering, if ark clones get successful, what benefits does it give back to ark
Djenny Floro (Ark Tribe) [7:45 PM]
@Jarunik to create an ecosystem?
mak [7:45 PM]
Right now we have to consider Ark's value not the other bridge chains
arigard [7:45 PM]
But if there isn't a reason for Ark to exist at the top, why are we all holding it?
Colby [7:45 PM]
Haha I think we are all thinking the same :slightly_smiling_face:
arigard [7:45 PM]
It's a terrible business plan
rob [ Ark Labs ] [7:46 PM]
the point of BridgeChains is to allow new projects with no access the market a path to them through Ark, and hence gain value.
Other blockchains connections are through ACES, such as BTC, LTC, ETH, and more coming..
Persona has a way to trade Ark <> Prs
arigard [7:47 PM]
What is to stop them from getting their own exchanges in the future and just using Ark as a stepping stone to becoming their own platform operator?
mak [7:47 PM]
Sure rob, but there's now 10 different projects doing the same and they are faster in development than the ark team is
arigard [7:47 PM]
^
Blockhunter [7:47 PM]
Ark is the Yoda of blockchain and they need a better catchphrase. Better than ark gives no dates or point click blockchain
arigard [7:48 PM]
This attitude seems horribly naive if this is the value proposition.
mak [7:48 PM]
All of us believe in the vision that Ark brought us but I personally am not sure if Ark is the best option to execute that vision in time
arigard [7:48 PM]
The issue is, we don't know what the value proposition is.
mak [7:48 PM]
Other projects seem much faster
rob [ Ark Labs ] [7:48 PM]
if you are into speculation, which it seems you are, then on paper all of your projects with no code are better and have more value than Ark
arigard [7:48 PM]
That's not true at all. lol.
Matthew_DC [7:49 PM]
At the most base level, ARK is a common currency token that is essentially automatically compatible with every bridge chain that is built based on ARK and is optimized for transaction volume and throughput to avoid bloat of other mechanisms introduced by the other chains. That is at the most basic level. By holding the ARK token itself, you will be able to enact the functions of multiple bridged chains both issued by our team and others. You will also be able to utilize the ARK chain as a pegged token to many bridged chains but that process will be transparent to users as it will be done behind the scenes without the user needing to do any functions. To think that someone will fork the code and generate a more effective ARK main chain means you have no confidence in the ARK team as the primary developer of the technology itself. In this case, if we are not and someone pushes a better version of the network, then I would argue maybe they SHOULD be chosen. That is the point of a free and open market. Not to mention the potential for registering and providing snapshot hashes to the main ARK blockchain to provide added security measures to a bridge chain with lower security due to lower market share etc, those are just baseline reasons.
As I mentioned the other day, at face value, consider this. What brings value to Litecoin or Bitcoin or Doge? In essence, ARK is a more effective currency and base network than all of these aforementioned networks with all of the added benefits being added for additional use cases.
roks0n (deadlock) [7:50 PM]
will ark based chains be bridged via arkvm?
goldenpepe [7:50 PM]
They cant be
You'd need the VM on both sides
Matthew_DC [7:50 PM]
I am currently on a conference call and have a lot going on so I can't respond too much.
goldenpepe [7:50 PM]
You can use AIP11's new tx types to do a sort of escrow between chains though i think
mak [7:50 PM]
@Matthew_DC Are you saying that the bridgechains deployed by ark-deployer don't have the same features?
rob [ Ark Labs ] [7:50 PM]
ArkVM is not for bridging chains
goldenpepe [7:51 PM]
It can be
Coinme [7:51 PM]
And ICO's that will join Ark in the future will use it for buying their token.
goldenpepe [7:51 PM]
But both chains will need to be running the VM
Matthew_DC [7:51 PM]
The ARK main chain will have specific methods of allowing token transfer and utilization between chains to include quasi-centralized methods through aces, decentralized aces based intermediary networks, Time locked transfers, among custom built smart contract like logic built into the core technology itself that doesn't make the network susceptible to the bloat and mis-utilization an vulnerabilities of full VM use.
goldenpepe [7:51 PM]
(which the main ark chain wont be)
mak [7:51 PM]
"ICO's that will join Ark in the future will use it for buying their token"
Or any other bridgechain that's listed on exchanges
@Matthew_DC So will all of the bridgechains, no? I could start an ACES node today for persona and it will have no difference from what you describe.
Matthew_DC [7:52 PM]
@mak no, we promised ARK would be open source and everything we build for the core ARK blockchain will be open source.
arigard [7:53 PM]
You can be open source and still protect your value..
Matthew_DC [7:54 PM]
The point of ARK from day 1 has been to create a better base layer blockchain technology and protocol for everyone everywhere to be able to use to create anything they can dream up.
The ARK token is a core payment layer for the ecosystem including any applications we build ourselves, sponsor, partner with, or support.
mak [7:54 PM]
It seems like the team's vision for Ark is as a software product only and there's no business plan for the main chain. Which is fine but it's not explained as such. (edited)
Blockhunter [7:55 PM]
Great to see such active discussions
goldenpepe [7:55 PM]
I think what Matt is trying to portray is this:
A single universal Ark Ecosystem wallet holding ARK that has a nice UI with a list of dapps in the ecosystem
You select a dapp
You send a tx from the wallet using Ark
----------------Everything below this line is transparent to the user-----------------
The Ark transaction has instructions in the smartbridge field
The Ark gets converted to dappCoin via an intermediary like ACES (trustful) or a trustless escrow smart contract
The intermediary received Ark and uses the dappCoin on the dapp chain to do whatever it is the user wanted to do using the instructions in the smartbridge field
The dappchain responds to the request to the intermediary
Intermediary sends an Ark tx with the results of the dapp computation/action in the smartbridge field
---------------Everything above this line is transparent to the user-------------------
After 8+ seconds, user's wallet shows them the result of their interaction with the dapp bridgechain
That's where the value of Ark will come from
The Ark coin will be a universal "omni-coin"
Matthew_DC [7:56 PM]
:this: This
goldenpepe [7:56 PM]
That will instantly shapeshift into bridgechain coins to interact with the bridgechain dapp
mak [7:58 PM]
I understand what your point is and I agree it will work but only as long as none of the bridge chains are on an exchange
when for example persona gets listed on binance the scenario changes
and now either chain can become the backbone of the ark ecosystem
arigard [7:58 PM]
Yes. We see that. But hypothetically what is to stop a bridged Ark chain from becoming bigger than Ark and then going on to become that gateway? At this point it just seems to be hopium that the Ark network will always be the one people look to. But in one year, or two, or five, it might not be the case. What is to stop Ark being just sidelined if another team come along with develop on what Ark has built and propel it forward and take the mantle?
goldenpepe [7:58 PM]
What you say will be a problem only if the utility of the dapp coin is greater than the utility of the ark omnicoin
Would you rather hold a coin that can do one thing and is forever tied to a single chain
arigard [7:59 PM]
But in other crypto's an app becoming sucessfull is a benefit. In Ark's network it could be a negative.
goldenpepe [7:59 PM]
Or would you rather hold a coin that can interact with that single chain and 3232523432 others
arigard [7:59 PM]
But why can't another coin become an omnicoin?
If there are no limitations against it
goldenpepe [7:59 PM]
Why can't another coin become ethereum?
mak [7:59 PM]
"What you say will be a problem only if the utility of the dapp coin is greater than the utility of the ark omnicoin"
Or if it gives out better staking returns etc like persona because of higher inflation rate
goldenpepe [7:59 PM]
if there are no limitations against it
You can literally go on AWS right now and deploy an ethereum clone chain
arigard [7:59 PM]
It can, but an ETH token can't oust ETH
That's the difference. We are giving people an easy route here.
rob [ Ark Labs ] [7:59 PM]
do you often think your children should not surpass you? Or is that the hope?
Matthew_DC [8:00 PM]
Well it's about security, trust, potential vulnerabilities due to added functionality, the ability of the bridgechain team to create interactions and focus on use cases for their token outside of their core use, etc.
But that's the point of open and free markets
goldenpepe [8:00 PM]
There is a solution to your concern @arigard
Matthew_DC [8:00 PM]
What is to stop someone from being better than Bitcoin?
arigard [8:01 PM]
I think all these strawman arguments are fun, but they still aren't adressing the issuel
goldenpepe [8:01 PM]
Instead of having Ark Deployer literally cloning the ark codebase, have it be a turnkey solution to run a layer 2 chain
Matthew_DC [8:01 PM]
You could go fork Ethereum right now and have an exact copy of the capability of the main Eth chain.
goldenpepe [8:01 PM]
bridgechain dapps can be "colored coins"
that are forever tied to the main chain
arigard [8:01 PM]
Yeah but you wouldn't have those businesses on the chain.
goldenpepe [8:01 PM]
but that would introduce bloat
Matthew_DC [8:01 PM]
So you are saying the utility of Ethereum is adoption.
arigard [8:01 PM]
And those businesses won't have the potential to become the main ETH.
Matthew_DC [8:01 PM]
Which is the case for the value of any token.
goldenpepe [8:01 PM]
@arigard It sounds like you want ark to become Ethereum Plasma
arigard [8:02 PM]
I just want an answer.
Matthew_DC [8:02 PM]
How many companies are pulling their ERC20 tokens off of Ethereum because of the issues?
Colby [8:02 PM]
Yeah but correct me if im wrong
goldenpepe [8:02 PM]
There is no answer that will satisfy what you are asking
arigard [8:02 PM]
And i keep getting strawmanned.
Colby [8:02 PM]
Ethereum projects NEED eth for gas
Matthew_DC [8:02 PM]
We talk to people almost every day that are looking to leave Ethereum.
Colby [8:02 PM]
Ark is needed for?
arigard [8:02 PM]
^
Colby [8:02 PM]
This is all I am wondering, where does the ark coin fit into it
I love the idea
goldenpepe [8:02 PM]
@arigard You want ark-based coins to rely on Ark
The team wants the Ark chain to not be bloated
The solution to this is unironically ethereum plasma and sharding
Colby [8:02 PM]
but have been waiting for a while to know how the Ark coin will actually be used
goldenpepe [8:03 PM]
Shards in ethereum are basically "bridgechains"
arigard [8:03 PM]
Ok, and those teams might be big enough and clued up enough to eventually knock Ark from being the de facto omni coin. That's the worry.
If this is in fact the possibility.
Then it should be clear.
mak [8:03 PM]
"You could go fork Ethereum right now and have an exact copy of the capability of the main Eth chain."
@Matthew_DC Ethereum has value because all the dapps live on it which is not true for ark
arigard [8:03 PM]
Because as an investor it worries me, a lot.
I don't know where the value of Ark as an investment is 100% right now.
Jarunik [8:03 PM]
Ark is basically the inverse approach to Ethereum. Eth goes for big one-fits all first and tries to shard ... Ark is creating shards and then combines them
goldenpepe [8:03 PM]
There is no solution to what @arigard and @mak are saying right now
Literally no existing solution
Only proposals like sharding
arigard [8:04 PM]
And all this noise about defensiveness doesn't help. These are legit concerns.
Matthew_DC [8:04 PM]
When was it not clear that if a company comes along and builds a better more used product it could potentially take over market share?
That's how all free markets work.
You can't believe in open source and build and open source product without that risk.
arigard [8:04 PM]
But that isn't the same thing. Ark is literally building THE tools for people to then do that.
mak [8:04 PM]
@Matthew_DC Just to clarify I appreciate the work you guys are doing but I want to make an informed investment decision about holding the ark token
arigard [8:04 PM]
As a platform.
Jarunik [8:04 PM]
yes ... that is the idea how to grow
arigard [8:04 PM]
if you cloned Bitcoin back in the day you were a seperate currency.
Jarunik [8:04 PM]
provide good tools for others to create chains
arigard [8:04 PM]
This is a platform, its totally different.
And what we are discuswsing here is who runs that platform.
Matthew_DC [8:05 PM]
If someone launched an Ethereum chain right now and gained adoption there is a huge potential that all tokens decide to move their ERC20 tokens to the new chain and it becomes the new Ethereum and you have in essence lost all value because Ethereum is not capable of being used on the bridge chain as a currency.
ARK maintains it's value if for no other reason than the pegged value to any chain we personally create to include VM chain, token issuance chain, etc.
arigard [8:05 PM]
If it's built by Ark, does Ark always retain control? if not, why? What happens if Ark ends up building tools for a subsidary project that propels itself above them. Investors will just move to that coin.
Matthew_DC [8:05 PM]
Because it's an open decentralized system.
The problem is people don't actually believe in decentralization if it possibly harms their potential for monetary gain.
rob [ Ark Labs ] [8:06 PM]
we hope bridgechains get popular because that also means more for Ark in many ways.
arigard [8:06 PM]
You can be decentralized without being 100% altruistic. It's not mutually exclusive.
mak [8:06 PM]
@goldenpepe Since you guys claim that there's no solution for this how about I present one which @Matthew_DC can decide if it's useful or not. Make delegate voting for the ArkVM happen on the main chain. So anyone who wants to become a delegate for the VM needs to hold money on the main chain.
arigard [8:07 PM]
It just seems people are being dogmatic about this.
And if this isn't about investment. Why have an ICO?
Matthew_DC [8:07 PM]
Ethereum being the core chain for all ERC20 token based businesses centralizes the industry in a massive way. Not only is Ethereum itself centralized in the way it's mining structure was developed, but it also is centralized in that if the Ethereum network is compromised, thousands of companies assets and business are now compromised.
We don't believe that is the future.
mak [8:07 PM]
I'm not saying that this should be done for all sidechains. Just for the VM and it will be a special case.
Matthew_DC [8:07 PM]
We believe in a different business model.
That has been at the core of every description and explanation I have given from day 1.
arigard [8:07 PM]
Ok and that's fine, but my point is this should be made very clear if it's the case.
From the team officially.
goldenpepe [8:07 PM]
@mak now you're strawmanning me
Matthew_DC [8:07 PM]
Where is it not clear?
goldenpepe [8:08 PM]
I was addressing the fact that the idea that bridgechains shouldnt be independent and should be tied to Ark being in conflict with the Ark team's idea that the main chain should not be bloated with dapps
The only plausible solution to that right now
is Ethereum Plasma
Sharding
yokoama (thefoundry Delegate) [8:09 PM]
Sharting
mak [8:09 PM]
"We believe in a different business model."
I respect that. But it changes the ark's value proposition to just being a source of funding to the ark team and a means of speculation.
goldenpepe [8:09 PM]
Shards in ethereum are like bridgechains but the coins are all erc20s that rely on ethereum
Matthew_DC [8:09 PM]
People said ARK's DPoS mechanism would be a failure when we changed the voting structure because they said it wouldn't be secure enough. It has turned out to be massively secure compared to the centralized cartel run solutions of other DPoS chains. This is another fundamental issue where we believe we have a model that will work and will create value and thousands of use cases for the ARK token in a seamless way for the average user.
goldenpepe [8:09 PM]
and the shard blocks dont interfere or bloat up the "main" eth chain
mak [8:09 PM]
@goldenpepe I'm not suggesting deploying dapps on main chain. Just that the voting should take place there so there is always incentive to keep money on the main chain.
Matthew_DC [8:10 PM]
At no point did we say ARK was gas and have constantly made sure to outline the differences between ARK and Ethereum.
I believe the Eth model is flawed.
goldenpepe [8:11 PM]
The current ethereum model is flawed
If sharding works then it's going to solve a lot of its issues
(i dont hold any ethereum btw)
arigard [8:12 PM]
At no point have we actually had an updated white paper discussing this question in detail, clearly. It's not on the website and if it is it's buried somewhere in a blog post. The fact these discussions keep cropping up is proof of this.
nukacolaplease [8:12 PM]
I think we don't understand clearly what makes Ark important after the launch of the sidechains, Ark will be only an "exchange token"? The sidechain doesn't need Ark for operating
goldenpepe [8:12 PM]
+1 on needing a new whitepaper
Matthew_DC [8:12 PM]
replied to a thread:
This is a means of centralization of the network. Instead, by utilizing a form of pegged bridge chains, we can maintain a similar effect without creating centralization and reliance on 1 chain for others to properly function.
arkenstone [8:12 PM]
I think these things should be clearly written in a new WB and officially made public and promoted
goldenpepe [8:12 PM]
A new whitepaper would clear up so much FUD
pieface [8:13 PM]
Yeah I think a new WP is needed for sure
arigard [8:13 PM]
So don't start going "Oh everybody knows this, it's clear" Show me where on the front page of the website it tells you how the token mechanics will work in the ecosystem? It's not good it being on some powerpoint on a google drive, or hidden in comments in the slack.
mak [8:13 PM]
I though there wasn't going to be a new whitepaper.
arigard [8:13 PM]
It needs to be clear to investors how it works, exactly.
goldenpepe [8:13 PM]
I agree with arigard here
I only know what I know because I live on slack
Matthew_DC [8:13 PM]
The solutions are still in development and there are always opportunities to continue to adapt the model, that's why I have these conversations and ask for feedback regularly, but the core fundamental belief of how open and free decentralized markets should work most likely won't change.
arkenstone [8:13 PM]
Same here
goldenpepe [8:14 PM]
The vast majority of ark holders have no idea
they just bought bc of the cool red triangle
arigard [8:14 PM]
Stop playing cute, this is people's money you are asking for. So at least give them the benefit of being honest that there is no inherent business model reason why Ark will be necessary in the future.
And let them make their decisions.
roks0n (deadlock) [8:14 PM]
I agree, it took me months of following discussion on slack and digging around reddit to get information
arigard [8:14 PM]
With proper information.
mak [8:14 PM]
replied to a thread:
It's centralizing value onto one chain but doesn't bottleneck the ecosystem so I don't see anything being wrong with that.
Matthew_DC [8:15 PM]
replied to a thread:
I'm not arguing with you and I made a clear post here within the last 2 days that our website messaging is shit and needs completely redone.
If the ARK network is compromised or the consensus mechanism of the ARK main net is compromised then all subsequent networks reliant on that consensus would be compromised as well.
mad4thrash [8:15 PM]
In my opinion Ark's value come from (in the future) the fact that by holding one coin I can interact with every bridgechain plus any ACES services
Matthew_DC [8:16 PM]
So what I am saying is that we have to be cautious of these kinds of decisions and ensure that we aren't inadvertently creating attack vectors to take down partners, businesses, and other industries using the technology.
I'm sorry guys, I have to go, but I would love to continue this conversation on Reddit or here at a later time.
mak [8:16 PM]
"all subsequent networks reliant on that consensus would be compromised as well"
^ Correction: only the VM chain will be compromised since I'm not advocating that all bridgechains should vote on the main chain.
Matthew_DC [8:19 PM]
In an isolated case, if we can map it out and vet the concept, I'm more than happy to hear it out and have the conversation.
Solowatch [8:19 PM]
So I think we can all agree an updated Whitepaper is due
Matthew_DC [8:20 PM]
This is a community project and we are shaping pieces of it together as we continue to build. We have already made changes based on community feedback on many occasions.
So I would love to see someone post a proposal to reddit or even as an AIP at some point that we could discuss.
Jarunik [8:20 PM]
If you write a white paper it will be outdated soon :smile:
Solowatch [8:21 PM]
Well a V2 whitepaper shouldn’t be outdated soon
I don’t care about a V1 or V1.5 whitepaper lol
I want a whitepaper for V2 that’s clearly explaining all these concerns that the community has
arkenstone [8:22 PM]
:this:
Solowatch [8:23 PM]
I wrote a few questions down that I’ll post in here later today that @rob [ Ark Labs ] asked for. Please add to it if I missed anything once I do.
arkenstone [8:23 PM]
And I think now it's the time do it. Present it with full package on mainet launch.. (edited)
Solowatch [8:23 PM]
Or PM and I’ll add them before posting
mak [8:25 PM]
Anyways thanks for listening and responding @Matthew_DC. Some of us have been trying to discuss this with the ark team but didn't get much feedback until today.
arigard [8:25 PM]
Yeah +1

Alot of early investors are getting worried

#FAQ #WhatIsParJarWhat is ParJar?
ParJar is a Telegram wallet and tip bot that works with /tip messages. All tips happen off-chain. All deposits and withdrawals happen on-chain. The bot is entirely fee less. So ParJar takes no fees for tipping, depositing or withdrawing. Normal gas fees (on-chain mining/transaction fees) are charged by the blockchain for withdrawing crypto from ParJar to another wallet since they are on-chain transactions.
Make sure to PM @parjar_bot to check out your own wallet on Telegram. There will be buttons in there to check balance, to deposit crypto to your ParJar wallet, to withdraw to another wallet etc.
To tip someone, you simply reply to them with “/tip ” to tip them from your own ParJar wallet balance to theirs. For example, "/tip 100 ZOM".Please note, the tip command only works in groups that already have the ParJar bot added.
You can see the list of ParJar supported coins/tokens in PM with the bot (@parjar_bot)
You can also check price of ZOM in PM with the bot with the following commands: "/price ZOM" (for price in USD) OR "/price ZOM" followed by BTC/ETH/LTC/XLM/XRP/BCH/CAD/EUGBP/PLN/RUB (for price in one of these currencies and this feature is not available yet)
To find value of, say, 10000 ZOM in ETH, use the command: "/convert 10000 ZOM ETH" in PM with the botTo find value of, say, 10 USD in ZOM, use the command: "/convert 10 USD ZOM" in PM with the bot
When depositing ZOM to your ParJar wallet, make sure to initiate a deposit each time in your ParJar (@parjar_bot) and follow instructions. The ZOM should be sent from a wallet to which you own private keys and not from an exchange.

Javvy – Crypto wallet and decentralized crypto exchange

Javvy – Crypto wallet and decentralized crypto exchange
https://preview.redd.it/k0wc8p71tc721.png?width=400&format=png&auto=webp&s=502c17a2a999f88b3eba304b30500641a4ba3614
Development in the crypto world is also growing rapidly, with ongoing development crypto users are facing some problems too. Which requires the proper solution for the long term. Check below market challenges faced by users and their provided solutions by Javvy.
Exchange security: We all know, nowadays one of the biggest problems in the crypto world is of Exchanges sites. Most of them have some negative feedback about their site. Security of sites is getting the break. Crypto wallet: Since starting crypto wallets are developed to store and send & receive cryptocurrencies. It was a basic feature of any crypto wallet. Even still most of the wallets are doing the same. They are just very simple and added with some basic guides on how to use. Wallets are limited: Currently, most of the wallets are limited in numbers of cryptos supported on them. Most of the wallets have Bitcoin, Litcoin, Ethereum and doge wallets. Solutions provided by the Javvy team for the current problems. Solutions and Features are discussed below:
The Javvy team is developing crypto wallet and Decentralized crypto exchange which supports FIAT currencies for doing the trade of cryptos/tokens. ID verification (only when required) (KYC type). As mentioned in whitepaper Javvy will support crypto users from 170 countries will get the benefit of project/platform. This is not web based exchange or project so it will reduce the cost and time of team and users. Javvy supports Bitcoin, Ethereum and the Javvy tokens and moreover after ICO ends they will add top 500 coins and 50+ vetted tokens. Payment methods like the pre-paid debit card, eCheck or bank transfers are supported on a project.
Encrypted private keys foon exch device and backup method for Private Keys.
Enforce to add secure passwords.
Crypto hardwares like Trezor and Ledger are supported.
Authentication through mobile, SMS and 2FA available.
For some limited use you don’t need to register on Javvy’s site. You can send, receive, convert or manage the crypto’s without getting registered on site. ID verification or KYC is only required for some advanced features like Buy and sell of crypto though FIAT and to participate in ICO or STO’s within the platform. You can join your favorite ICO from Javvy APP.

Of Wolves and Weasels - Day 45 - Breadth and Scope

Hey all! GoodShibe here!
Yesterday I spoke about those off doing great work on our behalf, taking the lead or pushing the boundaries of what Dogecoin can do.
I think today is a great chance for everyone to get a real sense of what's going on here - what a group of 65,000+ Shibes has and is accomplishing as we speak (err... type).
So, please, if I've forgotten anyone, don't feel bad -- especially if you're doing something in another sub -- just let me know in the comments and I'll add it to the list, okay?
Here we go!

Have I missed something? I'm sure I've missed something! I can keep going but I'm already running late for work (got carried away)! Post in the comments and I'll add as I have time over the course of the day :D)
It's 9:14AM EST and we're at 52.53% of DOGEs found. Our Global Hashrate is spiking from ~68 to ~89 Gigahashes per second but our Difficulty is still riding low at ~1027!
Go! Mine! Have fun!

I met a Bitcoin Core person. He is my bitcoin Dealer

Syncing nodes.
His argument against big blocks is that if the chain becomes too large then it will become hard to sync nodes. He claims ethereum is having this problem already. I offered SSD as a solution, his reply didnt sound confident. He claimed ssd would have problems too. This is a real dude, whos been around forever, and has a very strong opinion on bitcoin scaling solution and believes in LN. He had a few other points as well, such as right now if he sends money home to his family in Venezuela that he sends bitcoin not bitcoin cash. even doge coin or dash. Also admitting the fees last year were CRAZY and shouldn't have happened. He claimed that a blocksize increase was attempting to be made (assuming he means segwit) and roger ver and people delayed this from happening, thus fees getting very high. basically he says BCASH is an altcoin and nobody uses it the transactions are dead. This man wants the money supply to be out of the hands of governments and banks. his heart is in the right place. I also pointed out roger ver seems to be acting in the same interests as him, and has motive to as well... after being wrongfully incarcerated by an oppressive government.
what do you guys think about what he is saying?
I hold BCH as my largest bet and had no BTC until last night when i bought some and didnt convert it to BCH.
As sure as i am about BCH i honestly dont know the technical well enough to make a 100% decision. What do you guys have for me here? talk to me.

10 Basic Cryptocurrency and Day Trading Tips From a Teenager

After seeing a lot of new people entering the cryptocurrency world, I decided to post a thread with some basic advice for newbies. I won’t claim to be an expert, but I’ve been involved with bitcoin and other cryptos since 2015. Sorry if some of this is super obvious, I just wanted to post some tips for noobs. I’ve definitely made a profit by day trading, but some prefer the “HODL” mentality.
1. Never invest more than you are willing to lose.
This is the most important rule and should be obvious, but some people are investing money that you can’t pay back. For example, if you took out a $20,000 loan to buy bitcoin when bitcoin almost hit $20,000, you would be more than $6,000 in debt. Only invest what you afford to lose and remember to take out profits when you original investment doubles or triples.
2. Always sell when you have made a profit. (don't sell too early)
It’s important to always sell when you are ahead. Preferable when up .+50%. Greed is what causes fortunes to be lost in daytrading.
3. Learn how to read all of the charts on the exchange you use.
They are invaluable to being successful at day trading. If you don’t understand the market, how can you know when to sell and buy?
4. Read and stay up to date on all cryptocurrency things.
I recommend watching CryptoCurrency and other crypto subs. It’s often best to watch a specific coin’s subreddit, because that is where news shows up first. Twitter is also a valuable resource of you follow the right people. Read Reddit, Twitter, news articles, company blogs, personal blogs, crypto sites, etc.
5. Get involved and be active in the community.
For example, participate in different subreddits, download Telegram and join some cryptocurrency groups, or check out discord or twitter.
6. You can still lose money if you buy CoinXX at $3 and sell at $3.20.
If you buy at 22,000 satoshis and sell at 23,500 satoshis, you still lose money if Bitcoin skyrockets while you hold CoinXX.
7. Know that no matter how talented you are, there is still a degree of luck involved.
No one can accurately predict the cryptocurrency markets. It’s partly skill and timing, but you need luck on your side.
*8. Don't panic sell if you made a poor choice or coin. *
This market is highly volatile and chances are you will at least be able to limit your loss if you have patience and wait a few days.
9. Diversify your portfolio.
“Don’t put all your eggs in one basket” is a popular saying that applies here too. If all of your money is in AltcoinXX and it crashes overnight, you just lost all of your crypto. I recommend always holding some BTC/ETH/LTC/XMDOGE and diversifying the rest.
10. Understand what you are buying.
You’d be surprised how many people go to Reddit and see a highly voted comment saying “Buy CoinXYZ” and they listen and buy it without doing any research. If you see a coin that is popular take that as the first step in researching the coin and then make an informed decision. What problems is the coin trying to solve? How active are the developers? Do they have a community online? How active is it? These are just the basic questions you should be asking.
If you have any constructive criticism, tips, or questions, feel free to comment below. I made this post to inform new users and provide some basic advice.
Good luck and Happy New Years!

Javvy – Crypto wallet and decentralized crypto exchange - https://javvy.com/

Development in the crypto world is also growing rapidly, with ongoing development crypto users are facing some problems too. Which requires the proper solution for the long term. Check below market challenges faced by users and their provided solutions by Javvy.
Exchange security: We all know, nowadays one of the biggest problems in the crypto world is of Exchanges sites. Most of them have some negative feedback about their site. Security of sites is getting the break. Crypto wallet: Since starting crypto wallets are developed to store and send & receive cryptocurrencies. It was a basic feature of any crypto wallet. Even still most of the wallets are doing the same. They are just very simple and added with some basic guides on how to use. Wallets are limited: Currently, most of the wallets are limited in numbers of cryptos supported on them. Most of the wallets have Bitcoin, Litcoin, Ethereum and doge wallets. Solutions provided by the Javvy team for the current problems. Solutions and Features are discussed below:
The Javvy team is developing crypto wallet and Decentralized crypto exchange which supports FIAT currencies for doing the trade of cryptos/tokens. ID verification (only when required) (KYC type). As mentioned in whitepaper Javvy will support crypto users from 170 countries will get the benefit of project/platform. This is not web based exchange or project so it will reduce the cost and time of team and users. Javvy supports Bitcoin, Ethereum and the Javvy tokens and moreover after ICO ends they will add top 500 coins and 50+ vetted tokens. Payment methods like the pre-paid debit card, eCheck or bank transfers are supported on a project.
Encrypted private keys foon exch device and backup method for Private Keys.
Enforce to add secure passwords.
Crypto hardwares like Trezor and Ledger are supported.
Authentication through mobile, SMS and 2FA available.
For some limited use you don’t need to register on Javvy’s site. You can send, receive, convert or manage the crypto’s without getting registered on site. ID verification or KYC is only required for some advanced features like Buy and sell of crypto though FIAT and to participate in ICO or STO’s within the platform. You can join your favorite ICO from Javvy APP.

Decision making for the team is likely super hard. Here's my thoughts on how to make it easy as possible if people aren't comfortable.

Missed the call yesterday unfortunately, but the first call (gov/risk) had a lot of good questions regarding the stability fee and how large the moves are when it moves. Velocity of changes wanting to be made, etc...
I think for the MakerDAO team, if they set a baseline of priorities over the short/medium/long term. Starting with those, and working backwards basically. These also may very well exist, but if not, here's some examples.
Protocol goals Categories involved Choose the optimal which will only amplified +EV the more that time goes on.
Protocol Goals
// Examples //
Short term (<18 months): "We are prioritizing new CDP creation from unique wallets, as opposed to growing the market cap of Dai. We feel that planting this groundwork while we're still early from McD, and collateral selection remains to be finalized, the most value is to bring more and more CDP's into the picture. In the future, this base has better changes to be more distributed in accessibility. Some markets can appreciate it much more, and the more knowledgable and active CDP users there are, the faster we get to reach these markets that can take advantage of it.
Medium term (3-5 years): "We wanted new CDP's at first, because that was to plant a base of educated users, that will help others understand faster, while also having a large count of CDP's can allow for a broad distribution where Dai can be drawn down.
Long term (5-7+ years): Create a global currency that is supported by the participants and not a select few. Ensuring stability, borderless distribution. Delivering much needed financial services, for underbanked in established economies and unbanked in 3rd world countries. Decentralized, distributed, borderless. Fair.
Verticals For Consideration
Dai market cap.
Given the size of the market today, the actual markets overall sentiment it seems like it's a great chance to stay methodical and diligent as we see an increase in the growth of the protocol. If there's another bull-run on the horizon, then doubling down on things that have been out in the wild for a period of time (ETH cdp's to generate Dai) doesn't seem like the correct play. Appreciate the "quiet" (crazy level of adoption for you guys even in the bear market) time to stay heads down crossing t's and dotting i's if you're given the time. Whenever the next bull run is, seems like late next year or the following year, then utilizing this time should be largely on things that you don't want to be putting into production a week before things start 10x'ing m/m and lasts about 12 months. Yikes!
McDai Asset Critera
Multi-Collateral Dai rollout
I'm ultra bullish in the team knowing best on these things. I feel like that's largely the sentiment of many other community members backing the core team. Collateral selection is not easy, but when it's coupled with a set of chronological priorities it can drastically reduce the risk of the (Maker) DAO drifting off it's initial trajectory. If it was all about Dai in circulation, then tokenizing the empire state building would be a quick path to that mark. That said, you'd want to be looking for what can carry the largest amount of value over the longest amount of time and (ideally) across the most diverse set of conditions.
Optimal Asset - Bitcoin. Why?
// Very specifically talking about Bitcoin in a trustless implementation, not in the IOU sense which would be closer to wBTC's implementation. Which btw, I'm thrilled to see, as progress is better than no progress. I'm thrilled. I'm not suggesting that an ERC-20 token is bad, this would be an ERC-20... But the security and trust mechanisms that surround it feel troubling to a lot of the core value that Dai drives to many of the users.
// wBTC introduces the most desirable honeypot, amongst a large number of participants operating in a DAO, and minting/burning etc... Not as a knock, but if something were to go wrong, it'd come back in spades from the users effected. In the world of stablecoins, the best thing you really have is reliability. This approach feels like a bigger risk than many are considering. It's awesome, but all the patience in execution, and years doing things insanely diligently it seems like this is a potential hand grenade!
The case for Bitcoin - (Category: Digitally Native).
Bitcoin has the lowest education barrier for acquiring new users.
Stability Fee / Savings Rate.
The cross-over between these two. Subsidizing from a higher stability fee to deliver on the Dai savings rate. going to incentivize capital from other assets into Dai (great, grows the market cap, right?) Well if the team believes that the single best thing that can be focused on to provide defensibility/scalability/etc... Then this wouldn't align with that obviously.
As the broader market evolves more aggressively with fiat-stablecoins, the competition to attract AUM is going to end up becoming a rev share game. More AUM means a better savings deposit rate from the bank partner, that means more incentives to subsidize users to choose [insertCoin].
This isn't a bad thing to any extent, though it's something to be considered with every decision. The threatened outlook says that someone could come along and take the market opportunity away from Dai to be the leading stablecoin. Maybe that's USDC, maybe that's GUSD, sUSD, who knows. The opportunity with those events unfolding is that the hardest leg of the adoption is now being outsourced and distributed. Getting a person to convert from GUSD to DAI is much much simpler than trying to get a PayPal user to go from PayPal to Dai. Worth keeping that in mind :)
Sorry for rambling!
I'm pretty much the biggest MakerDAO fan around, and just thought that I'd share how I evaluate things for myself (not that you asked hahaha) and if there's holes in my approach and/or if I'm overlooking/underestimating various pieces of this gnarly puzzle!
Also - Not sure if others consider the premise of a systemic level problem, but the premise of state backups every n blocks, or insurance contract, etc... Would be interested to know, or maybe I'm just being a little over-cautious?
Likely you didn't make it this far down the post. If you did..... /tip +0.1 Doge
All of the above is intended to be a way to spark some thoughts and discussion. My faith sits totally with the MakerDAO core team. They've demonstrated patience, and pragmatic decisions for maintaining their pace to market and scaling. Totally rad!
*Edit: FYI, this stuff has literally never been done before. So that means that there is going to be changes, there's going to be ambiguity and uncertainty at times. Which is 100% part of the process :) So if you're tough to stomach the rollercoaster (which is 100% understandable) then you're never far from pushing pause, and coming back into this ride at a later date! Either way, the team's probably not a fan of the unknown curve-ball/rollercoaster situations so they're doing their best to consider risks in the unknowns, strategy, speed, sustainability, and trying to come up with one that provides the highest level of confidence I'd imagine.
Thanks!

Parachute: A story about getting started in crypto and building things people actually use.

Parachute: A story about getting started in crypto and building things people actually use.

It’s winter 2017 and Bitcoin breaks 10k bucks…

I was at a cryptocurrency meetup with a buddy of mine, Alex Michelsen, in late 2017. We had worked together on a few traditional startups before and started poking around cryptocurrency. A few months earlier, crypto wasn’t something that came up in conversation. People didn’t ask you how much Bitcoin you had or if you saw what Litecoin did that day. But that night, everyone, including my barber told me they just bought “a little Bitcoin,” and that Litecoin had almost doubled, so I’d better jump on.” It was new and exciting and, like most people, we wanted to learn more about it.
At this particular meetup there were about 5 projects that were planning a token launch in the coming weeks — health tech solutions, real estate on the blockchain, gaming — you name it. The founders all had a hard time explaining what blockchain was or why it was a core part of their idea-stage company, yet were all pretty well versed on the regulatory structure of raising an insane amount of money through ICO sales of tokens that didn’t even exist yet.

Every project I saw was raising an insane amount of capital to build a product just to see if it was something people actually needed.

As a tested startup founder who had previously bootstrapped two companies, I couldn’t understand how or why these crypto projects were shuffling around the order of starting a company. Instead of testing an idea, building a product, getting market validation, then raising money — they seemed to do it in the reverse order. Every project I saw was raising an insane amount of capital to build a product just to see if it was something people actually needed.
Everyone was jumping in.

The flood of ICOs in late 2017 (left and centre); Parachute “launch” in early 2018 (right)

Around the same time, I started looking around the countless online crypto communities. The chats were dizzying. Reddit, Telegram and Discord were acting as these loud party rooms where ideas were flying, excitement was palpable, and projects were getting thousands of people listening to what they were doing. There was a buzz in these chats I hadn’t seen before.
After running companies for years and pushing to create a community around what I was building — I saw crypto projects doing something traditional startups just couldn’t — generating interest and getting people involved super early. They wanted to discuss ideas, learn, help, and participate. Projects that were still in their infancy had communities offering support at a critical time when it could really shape their direction and help build something that really makes an impact.
While a lot of people were seeing ICO customers, I saw real people who wanted to explore early stage ideas and get in on cool stuff at the ground floor. On the train ride home from that meetup, where we saw companies completely overlooking the moment they were in, Alex and I decided to start a project to help these early stage crypto companies get on their feet in what we believed was the right order: Community and users first to help drive their product and project evolution. It was going to be a time where we built community, explored ideas, and figured out what people who were into blockchain actually wanted to use.
I believed then, as I do now, that crypto projects have a potential for community that traditional startups can never capture. That’s a strength of the crypto space and though we didn’t have a final blueprint of what we wanted to become, we knew we had to be a place where people could make friends, explore early stage projects together, and learn about blockchain. With this idea in mind, we launched a community and called it Parachute.

Here is an image of the original Parachute home page Jan. 2018, built on an idea of letting people discover cool crypto projects.

To Infinity and Beyond

To start exploring ideas, we created a token for the community and picked a few projects we liked. The idea was that people could earn our native token, PAR, and the tokens from cool projects they liked by getting involved and supporting them as they launched. We picked projects that were willing to give out tokens over selling them, that had good ideas to explore, and valued community support.
Over that first year, our new community explored incredible projects and some total washouts. Some projects we partnered with continue to build amazing things. Through it all, we stuck with our core ideas and continued to build a community around them.

I’ve always believed that discovering what people don’t need is the fastest way to finding out what they do.

During this time, we also worked on our own ideas. I’ve always believed that discovering what people don’t need is the fastest way to finding out what they do. Over our first year, we shared ideas, tested them out, and learned a lot. Some things didn’t work because they didn’t really need blockchain; other things didn’t work because they didn’t actually do jobs for people or add value to their lives. In the end, we learned what people didn’t need, and had a few ideas around what they did.
In our first 18 months, we had also given out 250,000,000 PAR to the community for exploring ideas with us, being involved, and supporting the Parachute world as it grew. We also grew as a team, with the addition of an amazing technical co-founder who started out as a community member.
With a great team, a strong community, and a pretty good idea of what people wanted, we were ready to get to business.

Our early ideas centered around learning, hanging out with friends, and discovering products that could be impacted by blockchain

The Shift

By late 2018 we completed the first part of what we set out to do. We explored different areas of crypto; we saw what worked, what didn’t, what was hopeless, and what could be improved. We had crystalized exactly what we wanted to be, and the direction we wanted to take Parachute.
Every space we touched, every community we saw, every project in limbo illuminated a central theme that became our guiding light: Cryptocurrency as a whole was hard to interact with, not very fun, and isolating. This was the polar opposite of the people I spoke with everyday. We knew as we moved forward, our mission at Parachute was to make the world of cryptocurrency easy, fun, and social for everyone.

The Launch of ParJar


ParJar supports ETH, BTC, LTC, BCH, Doge, and select ERC20’s — making it super easy to send any coin to anyone you chat with.

In December, 2018, we launched ParJar. The idea was to make a crypto wallet that could live in group chats and let people swap crypto coins in a super easy way. We picked our first social media platform, Telegram, and launched a wallet that did a few big jobs:
  1. It made crypto fun.
  2. It made crypto easy.
  3. It made crypto social.
What made ParJar different, was that people didn’t have to completely understand how crypto worked in order to use it. People were getting coins without setting up a wallet, sending coins without understanding network fees, and slowly learning about cryptocurrency while having it in their hands. ParJar was launched to make crypto easy, and it was doing just that for anyone who used it.
Because ParJar has no network fees, you can send someone 10 cents of Bitcoin, or a dollar of Ether as you chat. As we saw people swapping coins over thousands of times in group chats, we were seeing that crypto was becoming social.

While I do believe the coolest concept I’ve learned over the last year is that cryptocurrency lets me instantly create my own personal bank anytime I want, I believe the strength of blockchain also acts as a barrier to making it fun.

I remember my first Bitcoin transfer. I waited almost an hour for my Bitcoin to move wallets as I kept hitting the refresh button on my browser. It was amazing, but I wouldn’t have used the word fun to describe it. While I do believe the coolest concept I’ve learned over the last year is that cryptocurrency lets me instantly create my own personal bank anytime I want, I believe the strength of blockchain also acts as a barrier to making it fun.
ParJar was not made to act as a bank but, as the name implies, as a place where you keep a few bucks of your favorite coins to swap around with friends, pay for a beer, or send someone a tip. It isn’t the end-all solution for cryptocurrency, but it does make it fun for people to use and fun is a good place to start.
Today, over 9,000 people use ParJar as a way to interact with their friends. We’ve had over 100,000 transactions in the last 6 months with 75% of those happening in the last two. We’ve seen ParJar do a job that people wanted to get done. Finally, we built the tool that made crypto a place that was fun, easy, and social. We would have never started out with something like this and only ended up here after the year we spent exploring ideas and ruling out the things people didn’t need.

PAR and the Parachute Products.

The idea of ParJar is to be a launchpad for the world of Parachute products. Next, we’re launching additional products that keep true to our core beliefs while expanding how people and businesses use crypto in their daily lives; and we’re making PAR the foundation of it all.
PAR has been the lifeblood of our community but it hasn’t always had a clear purpose. Like the ideas and directions we explored, we also explored how PAR could fit into our world in an organic way that wasn’t forced, and that pushed forward our ideas of how cryptocurrency should exist. With our new products, we’ve done this.
Within the month we’ll be launching a new feature on ParJar that gives the user an option to use PAR instead of ETH for Ethereum network fees related to withdrawals and transfers. As we’ve seen with people who enter the cryptocurrency space, a common UX barrier everyone has is that it instantly becomes complicated, time consuming, and frustrating to use once they have managed to purchase it.
Using PAR, you can send any supported erc20 token to another wallet, service provider, or Dapp without having to purchase or transfer Ether. Having created an ecosystem where people can enter our products and touch PAR as their first cryptocurrency, it places a higher value on interacting in our world over buying ETH to use as gas.

Within the month we’ll be launching a new feature on Parjar that gives the user an option to use PAR instead of ETH for Ethereum network fees related to withdrawals and transfers

We’ll be launching these products and features with over 9,000 users and a target to expand to over 1 million active users by 2021.

Here's an image of a prototype of the Parachute universal QR

PAR will continue to be a part of what we build — from launching a universal QR code for all your cryptocurrencies — to letting stores connect with people through our platform — PAR now is a core part of everything we build.
We gave out 250m PAR in the last year and a half. Going forward, we’re giving out 270m more PAR scheduled over the next three years. Keeping with our original mission, we’ll be giving it out to new users and existing members who want to learn about crypto, be a part of our world, and use the products we build.

We’ve learned a ton since that very first post on Reddit. From the start, we’ve listened to the community, converted ideas to products, and tested products around them. I think the opportunity to grow with a group of people and make friends along the way is what makes launching a crypto project different than any other type of company. We owe everything to the people who have supported Parachute and wake up every day to build awesome stuff that they like to use.
As we grow, the products we’re building will go way beyond our community and live as a foundational tool that other communities will build on throughout the evolution of cryptocurrency. With a native app, a way to connect people to the stores they love, and an ethos that’s been driving us since day one, we think we can build Parachute the way we wanted to when we first started out — having fun, fostering an amazing community, and building things that people actually use.

If you want to get involved in what we do. Join us.
We’re also in over 170 communities across Telegram :)
