COINPAYMENTS.NET???


  • Regular Member

    Accepting FTC for goods. Why does coinpayments.net not have FTC listed or even on the vote list. For a veteran coin, you’d think this would be a more widely accepted coin. It’s fast, low fee’s, and lots available out there. What’s the dealio? Is there another alternative to coinpayments.net? Thanks guys! FTC for LIFE.



  • not a site i’m familiar with but they do offer a way to get feathercoin listed. https://www.coinpayments.net/addcoin if however they dont see enough traffic then it will be delisted. I really have no idea right now if feathercoin would do enough traffic.

    @j_scheibel maybe we as a collective can change that?? lets see if we can get everyone on this forum and more to vote?



  • I went ahead and put in the request. i mean that’s easy enough to do.


  • Regular Member

    @j_scheibel yeah, i tried, i guess you beat me to the punch. lol.


  • Moderators

    I think the reason is this
    a coin needs a monthly volume of $5000 or more, otherwise it is delisted unless someone pays for the listing…

    Honestly I doubt, that the Feathers will generate the required volume, having in mind, that the site seems to be US focused, while the majority of Feather users are located in Europe.


  • Moderators

    I’ve not much trading experience but have looked at Feathercoin on Cryptopia, $5000 (per day) is relatively small amount of Feathercoin trading. Feathercoin is as well known in the USA as Europe so that shouldn’t be an issue.

    I think it is a misnomer that being on more exchanges spreads the buyers, traders on exchanges look for good coins, so it widens Feathercoins base. It is much cheaper and quicker to move FTC around exchanges than Bitcoin for instance.

    Getting a new coin on an exchange is the make or break, so getting FTC on more exchanges is one thing the “normal member” can do to improve FTC standing.

    The down side to having more exchanges is that they are noted on the exchange list page and members inform them when software updates are needed. (exchanges run of block, so can cause themselves fork chains if the stay on a wrong version) i.e. they need to be communicated with, which is work.

    If I understood right, coinpayments is not a normal exchange, but more a service to accept several coins for paiments to the connected shops and paying the shop owner in just one currency. I didn’t check whether it’s one coin or fiat.

    rstood right, coinpayments is not a normal exchange, but more a service to accept several coins

    Yeah, thats what I’ve been searching for, sort of like a payment button. I’d like to start taking payments with feathercoin via online source with a payment button. like a plugin? or html code? i did find www.gourl.io but i’m not willing to pay wordpress a fee as of yet. i’d like to be able to test, and without wordpress there is zero testing i can do. I’m almost willing to set a bounty to figure this out for ease of use. Being able to accept payments in FTC will not only increase traffic to FTC, but make humans more aware of the uses and speed it has. Thanks guys!

    Well, there is some open source software doing that, but unfortunately for Bitcoin only.
    I’m not sure how much work it would be to adapt that software to feathercoin: http://github.com/bitpay


  • Regular Member

    @wellenreiter Yep! I’ve seen that one. Perhaps we can get a coder on this and reconfigure for FTC?



  • @addamnorth Getting the code changes is only the start, more importantly the company would have to deploy the changed version. Would they be willing to do so?

    Re : customisation for Coinpayments.net

    Can I encourage anyone to have a go at this project? It’s a really good student project, even if you couldn’t finish you’d learn loads.

    Usually (these projects) is a matter of reconfiguring a few variables, we could even set up a FTC chat group so Admin could answer any questions without embarrassment (of where to look for information / what to learn).

    It really would be little harder than setting up and building a miner from Github.

    @wrapper yes yes yes please! that is an amazing idea. Accepting payments in button form would tremendously help this community. Even if it were proprietary to just FTC. Coinpayments.net takes a portion of payment, I mean its a genius idea. Its like they are the paypal button of all coins. FTC needs that chance. This is a great thread. And I’m hoping one of you genius’ figures this out. lol.



  • So all we need to do is vote here with our coins?

    https://www.coinpayments.net/vote

    Feathercoin is currently ranked 13th (amongst many others); to get to 100% all we need is a total of 1 BTC.



  • @rogerdarin said in COINPAYMENTS.NET???:

    to get to 100% all we need is a total of 1 BTC.

    Easily doable as community. Lets get it started!
    Take my first coins! More to follow



  • “To be eligible a coin must (1) be based on and/or provide a compatible interface to one of our existing coin types (ie. forks of Bitcoin, Ether, etc.) and (2) be in the top 200 of CoinMarketCap.com. It is up to the person who requests the coin to make sure it meets these requirements, if a coin is found not to meet them no refunds of any vote(s) will be given and the funds will be donated to charity as with eligible votes.”

    Currently ftc wouldn’t be listed even if we reach the goal. We need to be in the top 200 on cmc. Otherwise yes it’s easy to reach 1 btc if everyone worked together.

    You are right. But I am very confident that we will get there soon 😉

    It’s not much of a stretch, given we’re only about 20% price increase away from that barrier…let’s start voting 🙂
