Aurora Files: Lockdown continues

Despite the low trading volumes due to Corona pandemic in Q1 of 2020 crypto currencies have held onto gains from the previous year outperforming most stocks and commodities that are about to give up more ground as the next wave of the virus hits Asia and western centers enter the eye of the storm.
Auroracoin has maintained value against bitcoin and has climbed up into the top 200 mineable coins. During the month of April lockdowns have been extended around the world and traders are preferring to park capital in bitcoin as a safe haven even over gold as cash dries up and money printing becomes ever more desperate.
We hope to be renewing auroracoin purchases in May 2020.

Auroracoin (AUR) — Briefly the Number Two Cryptocurrency — Destroyed On Airdrop Impact

Auroracoin (AUR) — Briefly the Number Two Cryptocurrency — Destroyed On Airdrop Impact

The War On Shitcoins Episode 3: Auroracoin (AUR). The war on shitcoins is a Crypto.IQ series that targets and shoots down cryptocurrencies that are not worth investing in either due to their being scams, having serious design flaws, being centralized, or in general just being worthless copies of other cryptocurrencies. There are thousands of shitcoins that are ruining the markets, and Crypto.IQ intends to expose all of them. The crypto space needs an exorcism, and we are happy to provide it.
Back in the early days of crypto when there were less than 140 cryptocurrencies listed on CoinMarketCap versus nearly 2,100 cryptocurrencies today, Auroracoin (AUR) briefly became the second most valuable cryptocurrency on March 4, 2014, when its price peaked at $98.
This corresponded to a market cap in excess of $1 billion at a time when Bitcoin’s (BTC) market cap was only $7 billion. But this ended up being one of the most vicious pump and dumps in the early days of altcoins since a mere two days later AUR’s price was already more than 80 percent lower.
The reason AUR gained such a high market cap, if only briefly, is that it brought forth the original concept of national airdrops. It could also be considered the first attempt at a national cryptocurrency. The idea was that AUR would be distributed for free to all citizens of Iceland who signed up and that this would drastically increase cryptocurrency adoption in Iceland.
AUR was mineable via Scrypt Proof of Work (PoW), and the mining community believed in AUR’s potential for becoming the national cryptocurrency of Iceland. Also, AUR was very scarce before the airdrop. Only 2.5 AUR were being distributed per minute via mining, and this scarcity automatically increased its value.
There was a time when AUR was increasing beyond anyone’s expectations just before the airdrop, and numerous speculators jumped into the market only to experience catastrophic losses. But the extremely rapid price peak and subsequent crash is an excellent example of a pump and dump.
Ultimately the citizens of Iceland who signed up likely dumped their AUR immediately for cash profits versus using or adopting AUR. Thus, the original purpose for which Auroracoin was built ended up being its biggest weakness, making Auroracoin a prime example of why national airdrops — and perhaps airdrops in general — do not work. At the point the airdrop occurs, the market becomes saturated, creating strong selling pressure.
The Auroracoin airdrop occurred in 3 phases. On March 24, 2014, 31.8 AUR were given to each Icelandic citizen who signed up. Right before the airdrop started, the Auroracoin market cap was $163 million, and less than a week later it had crashed to $20 million. The earliest Icelanders who received their share of 31.8 AUR got an impressive $400, which explains why they immediately cashed out. By the time phase 1 of the airdrop ended in late July, 1.127 million AUR had been distributed across Iceland, and AUR’s market cap had been completely plundered to less than $170,000.
Phase 2 of the airdrop immediately began when phase 1 ended, and the share per citizen drastically increased to 318 AUR to account for the fall in price. This amounted to about $30, however. By the time phase 2 ended, 1.6 million AUR were distributed, and AUR’s market cap was solidly less than $100,000. Phase 3 of the airdrop then began, and the reward was doubled to 636 AUR per citizen. 1.7 million AUR were distributed by the time the airdrop ended in late March 2015, and the AUR market cap had declined to less than $40,000.
Essentially, speculators and miners worldwide invested heavily into AUR during early 2014 in the hopes that a national airdrop would make AUR a strong cryptocurrency long term. In the end, the airdrop sucked all of the money out of the AUR market. This represented a redistribution of wealth from people in the crypto space who cared about Auroracoin to about 45,000 citizens in Iceland who didn’t.
With the airdrop completed and no more purpose left for Auroracoin, the developers pulled one final trick in April 2015 and burned 5.3 million unclaimed AUR. This led to a speculative rally that increased the Auroracoin market cap back to $450,000.
Shockingly, in March 2018, AUR’s market cap increased to $20 million on strong buying pressure. This showed the tremendous disconnect between the crypto rally and reality. AUR had already been proven to be a failure more than three years earlier.
Currently, Auroracoin has a market cap of $1.6 million despite the fact that AUR has practically no community and no purpose. The trading volume is less than 0.2 Bitcoins (BTC) per day, and confined to the small exchanges Cryptopia and YoBit. This shows how shitcoins with no real trading activity or value can have a market cap in excess of $1 million, proving how meaningless market cap can be at measuring a cryptocurrency’s investment worthiness.

IOTA is a centrally owned and controlled coin, here's why. (Posted here because it would be deleted elsewhere.)

After u/pyalot's IOTA Warning thread, I was motivated to dig a little bit.
Here's what others may not be aware of that I've found so far:
Excluding the funds of the foundation, the unclaimed Iota as well as the Finex cold store address yields the following distribution: (64.47% of IOTA is in the top 100 addresses) as of August 8th
"In fact, it can be shown that the strategy of one large double-spending transaction increases the attacker’s chances of being successful. In the “ideal” situation of this mathematical model, this attack always succeeds."
Like u/pyalot said "If your concept does not yet work 2 years in, it will never work."
If anyone has anything else, let me know and I'll add it.

HODLERs of Last resort

Hi all, I was listening to the Trace Mayer podcast and he was talking about the "HODLERs of last resort". You can listen here: https://www.bitcoin.kn/2018/03/the-bitcoin-hodler-of-last-resort/
I think it's relevant here in BTCP as well. I know things are down and we didn't get our exchange listings yet and coinmarketcap is not showing our market cap and maybe there's some problems on the dev team? But, I wanted to take the time to explain why I'm a hodler of last resort for BTCP. First off, blockchains don't die easy so even if all the devs for BTCP quit and this board dies off, as long as there is a way to sell BTCP and miners keep mining it, BTCP is going exactly no where. I mean Auroracoin and Bitconnect are still alive for crying out loud. The price may decline, maybe even to less than $1, but it's going to be around and it will always have the possibility of coming back to favor. I got into ZCL originally because I saw the potential in BTCP and none of that has changed. In fact, certain aspects of the value prop are even stronger than I would have thought when I first entered my position. I think the biggest thing we have going for us is our community. There's a lot of people here and I don't think we're going to let this thing die easy. Importantly, Bitcoin Private HAS A USE CASE and it's something that Bitcoin doesn't do well at the current time. It's also quite possible that Bitcoin doesn't ever adopt privacy features and even it does, it could take 5 years or more before it's implemented. Even Matt Corallo said he sees confidential transactions a ways out for Bitcoin as the research into how to implement it is still ongoing and they're not even close to consensus. You can also bet there will be a major fight about the best way to implement it just like there was for scaling. So, while things may have not gone our way price-wise, the opportunity for this coin is still exactly the same as it was before the fork.
So, all in all nothing has changed and the team has paid $600k to exchanges to be listed already. Do you think the exchanges want to return that money? I don't. Bitcoin private will be listed on larger exchanges, it will be traded, it will be mined. The (mostly volunteer) devs will implement segwit. More stuff will happen. So, I'm a hodler of last resort. Who's with me?

Yes, Litecoin is still here.

It's so interesting that every time there's a big price move (up or down) the readership of this sub increases 3-4x its normal amount...and half of them are the "peanut gallery" coming from the Bitcoin sub or other altcoins with one tenth of Litecoin's capitalization and daily trade volume, declaring it dead.
Litecoin has a bigger target painted on its back than even Bitcoin. Most alt-coins don't aspire to match or outdo Bitcoin...they ALL aspire to dethrone Litecoin, and there are hundreds of them. They all fail miserably. The only time in recent memory Litecoin was threatened was Auroracoin (edit: in terms of its position on coinmarketcap.com)...and where is it, today? Probably the biggest pump and dump story in the history of crypto...a cautionary tale that nobody seems to heed.
Litecoin took a hit. It's taken quite a few, this year...but it's still standing, in spite of the boos from the peanut gallery, who are dying to see it fail.
Bitcoiners who want everyone to believe the world only needs one...because they perceive that any challenge to Bitcoin is damage to their coin's price. Thinking small...because they can't see that we haven't even touched 99.9% of the world's population, yet and there's plenty of people out there for more than one coin to service.
Altcoiners who think "features" are what the world wants...because they are so embroiled in the crypto subculture that "everyone" thinks this way. Not realizing that their coin's myriad of "features" will be utterly useless and completely pointless, to the average Joe. But those features are the reason their coin gets any attention at all, so they push them...hard.
Litecoin is far and away the ONLY coin that rivals Bitcoin in daily volume. Its economics are sound, even though the mining imbalance due to ASICs has had a negative influence on price. That is not going to last. The protocol is secure. Litecoin has had almost no issues. It is so strong that any other Scrypt alt that wants to survive has to merged mine with it, or switch algorithms.
Litecoin isn't going anywhere. Stop worrying...and don't listen to the peanut gallery, whose intentions are totally transparent in their attempts to spread FUD. If you bought high...don't sell low, if you don't absolutely need the money (and if you do, it shouldn't have been in a speculative investment, in the first place). Don't let the strong hands shake you. Think two or three years in the future...do you really think Litecoin will disappear, given its track record? If the undisputed strongest alternative to Bitcoin dies...everything but Bitcoin probably does, too.
That, of course, is what a lot of Bitcoiners are hoping for. That's why they are in here right now, trying their damndest to declare Litecoin dead. Again. But this isn't our first rodeo, is it?
Now...count the number of times they call me a desperate bagholder (or downvote this post), in response. Two weeks ago, not one of them would have been here to reply to it.

Suggestion: add BCH-AUR pair

Hi, great to see an exchange with BCH pairs.
It would be awesome if you´d consider adding Bitcoin Cash - Auroracoin pairs :)
Yes its a shitcoin, but Iḿ making big $ by using it for arbitrage trades. Iḿ currently using Bittrex.com and my national exchange Isx.is . It would be great if I could skip using BTC since I use all my profits to buy BCH :)

I live in Iceland, I have NO IDEA why anyone thinks AuroraCoin is going to be valuable

I'm not Icelandic but I've been living in Iceland for a year. I've bought, traded and mined BTC and ÐOGE coins. I have an Icelandic social security number (kennitala) but I'm not sure if I am eligible for the AUR airdrop or why ANYONE in the alt-coin world seems to find it interesting. Here are a few facts about the Iceland & crypto currency:
So WHY are people discussing, trading, and valuing AuroraCoin so highly?

Reddcoin economics

Everyday I read some reddheads comments about reddcoin price, reddcoin wall @ cryptsy and I sense some growing anxiety arround this comunity and I want to expose/discuss some of my personal views about it.
Reddcoin is pretty new so the mining rewards puts a lot of selling pressure in the exchanges. In the last 7 days, 1 billion reddcoins were mined we went from 17.3 billions to 18.3 billions, a 5.7% increase.
The selling pressure will ease as coin gets older. One week of mining will still produce 1 billion redds until the block halving (next year) but as the coin grows older, the weekly billion will represent a smaller and smaller fraction of it's total market
Bitcoin is in a lomgterm downtrend. No crypto market is independent of the bitcoin market when bitcoin value decreases, every altcoin prices folows. Only pumped coins gained value. We had auroracoin, mintcoin and now blackcoin prices following a bell shaped curve typical of pump and dump schemes.
While a pump and dump scheme can be a great financial deal those who manage to sell the coins near the all-time-high value (hard), it can destroy the coin.
The current reddcoin price reflects not only the current bitcoin downtrend but also it's perfectly adjusted by some kind of mining arbitrag . Mining redd with a gpu yealds virtually the same as mining doge or mining ( each day there's 144M redds mined and for the current 0.004 - 0.0044 BTC/day per MH/s , 105k redds per MH/s, each reddcoin would be valued arround 3.8 - 4.2 satoshi.).
Also the huge exchange walls are consequence of the number of reddcoins created on each block. Sellig reddcoin for 5 satoshi instead of 4 represents a 25% profit while selling at 3 , a 25% loss. Huge numbers for the daytrading world. If there was 14M redds created per day instead of the current 144M, the buy/sell gap would be smaller and trades more frequent. (IMO this is a risk for redd but only a medium one - can we halve the reddcoin mining rewards earlier ?)
Did I say that reddcoin is young ? Serious business takes lots of time to build. Software development is slow and expensive and important business actions are planned months ahead. The current state of reddcoin development is more or less what I expect to see for such young coin.
Reddcoin had a sucessful IPO the devs didn't run away with the money and are still building software for redd. IPO money is a huge asset for a coin so dev still arround after receiving IPO money is great news.
Every week there's posts about new projects from the devs and while the reddit activity does not reflect the number of subscribes, the activity is slowly growing. Some younger reddcoin brothers are already dead or dying,so reddcoin already survived some early life coin filters.
So .. let's relax and kepp reddcoin comunity growing.

Looking for people to do small projects with

Hi all,
Like some of you i`m not a professional cryptocurrency guru but I know enough to keep up the with markets and see all future potential (and also which ones not).
I quitted crypto's a while back. Part because of spending 2.1 bitcoin on 2 pizza's at the time and also because I've spent and traded it without any thoughts. Other part is because of a combination of tunnelvision by Auroracoin and Cryptsy. Cryptsy down, Aur's gone. Wished I could get by them by know since they are 50ct's a piece I saw rapidly a while ago.
Those few bucks i've put into the effort and mining because I had a good AMD gpu anyway felt fun but it didn't worked out for me. A lot of changed since those few years ago and now.
I`m very intrested it Verge due to several reasons (also have unconfirmed minor concerns).
Then I thought, what can I do to make money with Verge? I dare to say it without any hassle, more people should be more honest like that. That doesn't mean that making money is my only wish in life, I want to do that in a meaningfull way and share that with more people. Collaborate and work together for fun, to be in service for users and give them a reason to USE Verge. Whats more fun in life then make many people happy and being productive while doing what you like?
Sounds like a dream to me all of my life. I've never put those thoughts into practice. Without putting any effort other then thinking into thoughts nothing will change. I now can only hope that my 100 bucks worth of Verge go high sometimes because I really believe this coin has potential.
Somebody must feel someway the same like me, motivating each other and really start something usefull and productive. Not 40 hours a week productive, but spare-time without any duties but really is convinced of his/her own thoughts.
i`m full of ideas I would like to share,Shout out if you're intrested and we will all see :)

Can Litecoin (or cryptocurrencies in general) really replace fiat currency in the future?

Ever since I started buying a few years back, I rallied for Litecoin in particular not only for it's fast transaction speeds, but also because Charlie(coblee) has been nothing but incredibly open, transparent, and supportive to the community (something which can't be said for most other cryptocurrencies out there). I don't think I trust any other creator of a coin apart from Charlie at the moment.
However I have a few concerns which I really do think needs to be addressed before the ultimate goal of having a truly stable decentralised currency can be reached based on my personal experience of the last few years.
My Story: I was extremely lucky when I first bought bitcoin at MtGox that I immediately transferred out to buy litecoins at a different exchange before they stopped all withdrawals. I bought 3 bitcoins at the time and converted it to Litecoins. Together with a bit of arbitrage and mining I made up 90 Litecoins. At the time I encouraged some of my housemates to buy and try out Litecoins as well (one of my best friends now currently hold 30 LTC after losing the other half to Cryptsy). I held fast even as Litecoin went down to 1-2 USD. I even got out of the Auroracoin lies relatively unscathed.
I used some of my Litecoins for purchases such as on Namecheap for domain names and was left with 54 Litecoins. Unfortunately for me I used Cryptsy at one point and ended up losing all my 54 coins which really broke my heart. My wallet - (https://imgur.com/pQNwkju)
My Concerns:
Massive Fluctuations in Price - With the rapid rise in the values of these coins, is it really stable enough to purchase actual products using cryptocurrency? Let's say I buy a domain name for 5 litecoins one year, and now it's worth 1K. Although the fiat currencies have inflation as a disadvantage, it's relatively stable. You would definitely feel "robbed" if you ended up paying for a 8 USD domain name one year, only to regret using it at all when it is now worth several hundred USD the next year. Wouldn't this kill our goals of trying to use crypto as a currency rather than just a tool for trading and investments?
Safety - Whilst I agree that Wallets are the safest place for keeping money, exchanges really should be under a lot more scrutiny and we need a lot more stability.
We have no real choice currently but to use exchanges extremely frequently to change back and forth to fiat currency not only because of the limited marketplace for buying products directly in crypto, but also what I said about the massive fluctuation in pricing. In the fiat currency world, we can essentially trust the majority of the banks to hold our money safe one year to the next. We currently cannot trust exchanges to this extent (perhaps apart from coinbase, but even then the insurance/assurances have not been tested). Even BTC-e that has been there for years had a large amount of their assets seized recently.
The Fees - Coming to the above point about safety, the fees are definitely a lot higher than they were before. I don't disagree that fees are required for transactions to take place, but some of these fees are much higher than you would expect, again from a standard bank in Europe. This discourages people to put their money into a safe place (which is counter-intuitive of what the community advises anyone who wants to buy into crypto).
Final thoughts - I'm not trying to talk down on crypto, I remain a huge fan despite my heart break of losing my Litecoins. But these concerns highlight some limitations to our goal of making a true crypto society and I hope they can be addressed in the near future bfore crypto becoming a massive pyramid scam. I think Litecoin is way ahead of all other coins in this regard, but still a lot of work is needed.

Auroracoin may surpass litecoin!

I was watching the exchanges closely today and was shocked to see auroracoin trading at 0.0190 to the bitcoin (litecoin currently trading at .0248). With the airdrop at just over 25 days away I am wondering if it will soon surpass the litecoin in value. There will be alot of speculation as to a. Will the Icelandic people actually receive the coins b. Will they use or sell the coins immediately All in all, I expect this coin to do extremely well.

The Nascar thing has me interested again

Of course like many saavy Redditors I heard of Bitcoin long ago, although I was stupid to miss the big December runup like many others. Dogecoin is what really got me into this stuff with mining and trading and blah blah blah like many others the past couple months.
Anyway the point is, I've been sliming my way through the seemy world of cryptos the past month or so and Dogecoin was obviously not where the big profits were the last month. Auroracoin was ridiculous and I got into Blackcoin early but fucked up a lot on trading. I'm not rich yet, but anyway...
The point of Dogecoin was to be fun and ridiculous and awesome and get more people into cryptos. The magic is back again.
I'm not a Nascar person (my stepdad is way into it so I've seen it though), but I can't wait to watch that silly ass car race around the track.
You guys are hilarious. I've been a shitty shiba the last month scumming my way around the other coins contributing nothing to this happening but I want to tip my hat to you guys for this. No other coins are putting their coin emblem on a Nascar hood that is fucking awesome. I'm interested again.

Every bear market ends after the last turd has been flushed down the toilet.

Quick buck con artists come with every bull market, the bear market bring out truth and tends to flush out the garbage.
Bull markets require a clean sheet before they can begin. Think of the US stock market after the 08-09 collapse. Deadweights have to be cut off before the ship can sail.
The bitcoin bear market is about 5months in. Many dubious characters have been outed, bankrupted, arrested.
Let's recap the 2014 BTC Bear Market:
Negativity is much higher then 4-5months ago. I would say we have either already hit bottom or are close to it. Since the damage to bitcoin reputation is immense and arising from a wide variety of individuals, I do not think an imminent bull market will occur.
The worst may be behind us at this point in time.

Does it strike anyone else as a little odd that for an cryptocurrency for the Icelandic people, Auroracoin's site only has a single short info page available in Icelandic, yet several and a forum in English?

And according to Google Translation of that page, there isn't even any info about the Airdrop except apparently that "information will be provided then"? Am I missing something here?
Link to the only page available in Icelandic
Clicking any button anywhere on that page returns you to the English site.
Full (bad) translation of the single Icelandic page:
"Aurora Coin , abbreviated AUR , is a coin that is designed to give people of Iceland have the option to use a different currency than the Icelandic krona .
History of the Icelandic krona is history inflation, devaluations , capital controls, and last but not least , crashed .
In Aurora Coin coin consists chance to escape such controls and dilution rate.
Aurora Coin is structured in a similar way as Bitcoin and Lite Coin. But the difference is that the Aurora Coin will begin with a so-called "gift " Airdrop in English , covering almost all Icelanders. Only one gift will occur and everyone gets the same amount. Thus created the conditions for the Icelanders know the coin and can start using it . After this gift will only be able to acquire coins by mining it and trade. As goes with cryptography currency , the code is open, decentralized processing and thus worked against fraud and abuse .
Programmers , domestic and foreign , are encouraged to provide a variety of programs to facilitate the use of Aurora Coin ordinary course of business in Iceland.
The gift will be provided from 25 March 2014 . For more information on how to view the 31.8 f per person will be published then ."

[SMT] Python script that will display my mining stats onto a RPi Char LCD Plate

I am sorry if this isn't the right subreddit to ask this. I did do a search but I only found C programmers for hire and a general for hire. If this isn't the right place, any point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
I have always and still do have an interest in Python and would love to learn how to write said language. Usually, with the help of google I can make small projects happen by my lonesome. However, this time I cannot and I'd like to leave it to an expert because I'd like this working soon.
So heres what I'm looking for; I need a script to run my 16x2 Character LCD plate that I have on my RPi B+ which is running Minera. Which if you're not familiar it is a BTC/LTC mining interface that keeps stats and such. I'd like the LCD to be able to show certain sections of criteria (hashrate, temp, rejected, accepted, runtime, etc) and be able to cycle through screens using the direction pad on the Pi's LCD plate. If I'm not completely wrong, that should all be able to be pulled from a local JSON file that displays every strings(?) value. So I'd like to think this wouldn't be a very challenging task for someone who knows a thing or two about Python.
I have tried to use other scripts as references but I have yet to find anything familiar enough or anybody generous enough to help. I have analysed the PiMiner cgminer script that displays stats but its completely different as far as I can tell. I also don't want stats from just one mining script I need the stats as a whole that Minera shows.
The JSON looks like:
Below is the format I suppose would be needed. I hope it makes sense, haha. I hope I'm somewhat close to accurately conveying what is in my mind.
Hope this "format" makes sense :|
Left/Right scroll below:
Screen 1:
Screen 2:
Screen 3:
Also, the up/down on the directional pad to display/cycle through;
Up/Down Scroll Loop: * Top: Litecoin Balance * Bottom: #Balance#
Down/Up Scroll Loop: * Top: Dogecoin Balance * Bottom: #Balance#
I hope I'm making sense but if you need me to be more specific, ask me. If could maybe afford to pay a little to get this done so if its something you think you could help me out with please give me a shout! :)

4/14/14 - China, BTC-e, Side Chains, Blockchain 1.5M wallets, Isracoin, Neo & Bee

Start off your week with today's top news updates in Money & Tech:
Chinese exchanges aren't letting the threat of bank closures slow them down. OKCoin and BTC China are both now planning to introduce bitcoin ATMs soon, as they and other exchanges in China adjust their business models and services to work around the central bank's restrictions. Huobi even went so far as to include a warning to the PBOC in its recent statement, saying “If online trading platforms that are following the rules have to stop services, bitcoin transactions will go offline where they will be unmonitored, and will result in even more difficulty regulating.”
Digital currency exchange BTC-e was down briefly on Sunday, following a powerful DDoS (or distributed denial of service) attack against its servers. BTC-e was quick to confirm the attack and dispel fears, assuring users that it was just a minor problem, with no security breach, and would be fixed quickly. True to their word, the exchange now appears to be back up and running.
Developer Adam Back and Canadian entrepreneur and investor Austin Hill have come up with a way to expand bitcoin’s functionality with "two-way pegging". With this concept, bitcoins could be moved back and forth between the bitcoin block chain and another block chain called a side chain. But they will need the support of the open source community to make changes to the Bitcoin protocol. Some developers are skeptical, but Back and Hill are confident they will have the support they need, and more official plans by mid-May.
Blockchain.info has now surpassed the 1.5M mark for downloads of its web wallet, just three months after hitting 1M in January. We spoke with CEO Nicholas Cary, who told us that "The team at Blockchain would like to thank the bitcoin community for its trust and support. We firmly believe that putting users first is the way to go. It is our mission to provide tools and services that build upon bitcoins core strengths and we look forward to building a better world through better money."
Beginning on midnight of May 6th, Israel's new cryptocurrency Isracoin will launch into the first of its four phases, with an airdrop of 500 coins to interested businesses, and an ultimate goal of sending 50,000 coins. Iceland attempted something similar last month with the airdrop of their own national altcoin Auroracoin. However, it suffered a 51% attack and the ledger was forked into multiple versions, essentially rendering the cryptocurrency valueless.
Cyprus police issued a warrant for the arrest of Neo & Bee CEO Danny Brewster on Friday, formally charging him with fraud in his failure to deliver £70,000 worth of Bitcoins to investors, as well as his employees, many of whom were never paid for March.

Auroracoin discussed by Icelandic Parliamentary Committee (and they don't like it)

The following is a rough translation of a news article on the Parliamentary Committee meeting.
Auroracoin discussed by Parliamentary Committee
The auroracoin medium of exchange was discussed by the Economic and Trade Committee of Parliament this morning, where an emphasis was put on educating and warning consumers of the risks of the phenomenon may pose. This is according to Pétur Blöndal, Member of Parliament for the Independence Party and vice-chairman of the Committee, but he says that there was consensus regarding the fact that using the medium of exchange could entail great risk.
Concerns about protecting property rights
Pétur says that multiple issues regarding auroracoin had been discussed by the Committee, including how the medium of exchange would work regarding taxation.
He then noted that those that were behind the medium of exchange had promised that a limited supply would be created, but that people would have to blindly trust that this would not be changed, and Pétur said he had significant concerns about how property rights were protected in the medium of exchange. Thus, for example, it has been shown on several occasions regarding the Bitcoin medium that it is unclear how the rights of individuals were protected.
"What is missing is that consumers be warned against this medium of exchange," Pétur said, but after approximately 10 days the creators of auroracoin have stated that they will give all Icelanders a few units of the medium.
The Central Bank of Iceland looks into responses to auroracoin
In the meeting there were among others representatives of the Central Bank of Iceland, and Pétur says that they discussed if this medium of exchange was beyond laws and regulations on the Capital Controls an that the Central Bank of Iceland had been in contact with foreign central banks that have recenly responded to the bitcoin movement. Pétur says that nothing had been decided regarding whether the Central Bank would respond in any way in light of the medium of exchange, but these matters were being looked into.
Pétur says that people have to realize that this is not a recognized currency since no-one backs the medium. When asked, he says that there are examples of currencies that hace not been backed by governments, but that the country has laws regarding currencies and that they do not apply to this medium of exchange.

The best way for tech savvy Icelanders to use their AUR to help their economy is to mine cryptos.

The best thing that Iceland has for producing foreign exchange is their very inexpensive, renewable hydro and geothermally produced electricity. According to this Wikipedia entry:
Iceland’s per capita consumption of electricity was 7 times higher than the EU’s in 2008. The electricity is commercially used in the production of aluminum and other metal alloys that can be exported to gain foreign currency to compensate for the disaster caused by their bankers.
The cost of electricity is the main budget item in a crypto mining operation after the hardware has been acquired. Tech savvy Icelanders are undoubtedly aware of this, and, hopefully, are already starting to take advantage of this.by buying up AUR, converting them to bitcoins, and ordering equipment from the best worldwide sources accepting bitcoins that will ship to Iceland. Hopefully, there are also local tech suppliers accepting AUR that are now bringing in enough inventories of the items to meet the new demand.
Iceland already has a very high per capita Internet use rate, so the country should have a large bandwidth to both the US and Europe. It remains to be seen the extent to which the Airdrop allows the country to become a larger center for crypto mining than it already has.
I am just a newbe, but I have gathered that, if Icelanders begin to dominate AUR trading, then local mining pools will have an advantage because they will get the local trade info quicker than those offshore. Offshore miners should be able to help the local pools by getting the offshore trade info quicker to the main node than otherwise.
Furthermore, if AUR becomes imbedded in the local economy, the local miners will be able to recycle their profits into the local auroracoin economy improving the ecosystem’s efficiency. By mining other altcoins, they will be bringing in badly needed foreign currency using a locally produced valuable commodity that is currently being underutilized. Hopefully the Icelandic politicians are becoming aware of this potential, and will let it develop without interference.
Icelandic based auroracoin mining pools would be best for the coin because they will have a stake in the currency and will have the means to do what it takes to defend it.
Perhaps some Icelanders who have some info on these matters will share with us.

ForeXMinute devotes entire article to Blackcoin.

Edit Blackcoin also got favorable coverage in their regular crypto article.
For some reason I have never been able to post a direct link to ForeXMinute
Is this publication being censored on just blackcoin,or is it restricted non on all of reddit.
I have not had a problem previously posting from there directly on to auroracoin.
