    Feathercoin Official Weekly Update #25

    Tuesday 25th March 2014


    The Heroes

    Feathercoin Key Stats

    343 days since genesis block creation
    Approx. 37,500,000 of Feathercoins created
    Approx. 16.36 days behind target generation rate

    Today’s news is brought to you by the heroes. The ones who stick by you through thick and thin, who know how to say ‘no’ to the time wasters because they already said YES to something more important. The people whose values are clear and who turn up everyday hungrier than the day before.

    I’m a big fan of Authentic Enthusiasm. It’s about reaching a point in your life where you just understand what makes you unique, you finally realise what it is you are here to learn and have to give. It stands opposed to False Enthusiasm, which is an ego driven excitement. It’s getting caught up in general mood and being carried away by it rather than responding authentically and giving out what is uniquely yours.

    When we first get excited about an idea it’s very hard to know whether the idea will still excite us tomorrow or next week. It’s hard to know whether we will be able to keep our energy levels up during the dip. I can’t lie, I don’t have a conclusive answer on how to tell the difference so instead I prefer to keep on learning from the experts who don’t need words to say everything that needs to be said…


    _by @uncle_muddy_It’s been just over 4 weeks in the making, and all started in Kevlar’s post Open Source ATM But its finally finished, or at least this iteration is!

    54c2dd32-8d1a-49a8-ab26-d90046ff0281_zps 7400bd6f-fdba-4312-9028-7e8ee4a30d5f_zps
    Excuse the photos, but I only have a phone camera here at the moment. The full write up of the finished version available in the Technical Development section of the forum, including all of the information you need to be able to make one of these devices yourself.

    The ATM will be making its first appearance at the Oxford Blue this Saturday March 29th 3pm onwards, so bring your £1 coins and watch it in action.

    One Year Anniversary / Birthday.

    _by @Ruthie_I want to draw your attention towards our one year anniversary, we want your ideas, how do you think we should celebrate?
    Its coming up in April, which isn’t that long away, we are having a meet up at The Oxford Blue on April 26th, but want everyone to celebrate together Calem has started a thread for a Global Celebration have your say https://forum.feathercoin.com/index.php?/topic/6628-global-one-year-birthday-meetup/


    _by @Rusty Nash CEO & Co-Founder_Our mission is to increase liquidity, stability and validity to cryptocurrencies by allowing people to spend them as they normally as they can spend fiat. Whilst retailers are still a bit wary of accepting bitcoin, let alone other digital currencies, we are bridging the gap for holders of currencies to spend where they want to. Currently you can spend via pock.io at a plethora of retailers:

    • Amazon.co.uk
    • ASDA (in-store only)
    • asos
    • Burton Menswear
    • Debenhams
    • Dorothy Perkins
    • Evans
    • Google Play
    • Over 750 pubs across the UK via the Great British Pub Card
    • Miss Selfridge
    • Mothercare
    • New Look
    • Playstation - prepaid cards and PS+ subscriptions
    • Spotify Premium
    • Starbucks
    • Ticketmaster
    • Topman
    • Topshop
    • Xbox - prepaid and Xbox Live Gold subscriptions

    We have also just gotten approval to sell Marks & Spencers gift cards (online and instore) bringing another option for the community to grab groceries (as with all the other goodies that M&S sell). We also have very exciting plans for the near future, but you’ll have to follow us on Twitter (@pockiouk) to keep abreast of the features and retailers we will be rolling out. Without saying too much, we have some innovations which should allow an even easier way to spend cryptos as you normally would spend fiat!

    MinerX is an automated MiningTool for newbies. Its Java based and its combinated with CgMiner and CudaMiner, enabling simple setup of mining using both AMD and nVidia cards.

    Ready for release under the Alpha testing phase, this simple to use tool should get you up and mining within a couple of minutes. Development work on the project is on-going so let me know if you have any feedback.

    I’m still looking for graphics to improve the user interface, so if your a budding designer theres a 100FTC bounty up for grabs donated by myself and Ruthie should your design be chosen.

    Once your up and running the hashes go towards http://mine-ftc.co.uk:19327/static/index.html so all the time your mining your giving a little back to the community and helping us reach our fund-raising goal for Prostate Cancer UK.

    All the information can be found here.

    Tech Dev

    _by @Ruthie_Well I know for sure that the Technical Development area is busy as I have barely spoken to Bush in a while, as you know I let the Dev’s get on with what they do but I think they should get a mention for working hard in the background : so thank you, ghostlander, Wellenreiter, wrapper and Bushstar and to all those that have input in the Tech Dev area.


    _by Chris_Living life authentically and working towards truth isn’t easy and it’s not something that can easily be put in to words. Over the months I have tried to shape this newsletter in to a platform for those who are authentic, resilient and who push themselves in to new areas of learning and talents. It isn’t really the money we want anyway, it’s each other. And the people who will shape the future will be the heroes, the ones with grit, who turn their whole lives in to works of art, the ones who never stop learning.

    You can find the last official newsletter here: Become Who You Want To Be. Today special thanks go to @Uncle_Muddy @Ruthie @Chekaz and @ChrisJ for their contributions to this newsletter.

    You can follow us on Twitter, Facebook or come on to the forum to stay up to date.

    Thank-you for your time.

We must be sure to film it being used and broadcast it on our youtube channel and live stream.

    Thank you Rusty at pock.io for supporting Feathercoin 🙂 I’m gonna get Bush to get me some gift cards 🙂

    Return of the hero, I think it’s time to rebuild the price.

    I just sent pock.io a message asking what the procedure is for merchants to sign up. My company The Hut Group runs Myprotein, Lookfantastic, Zavvi and many other sites.

    If pock.io take crypto and buy gift vouchers from merchants then there’s no risk for merchants, but pock will have to take on the financial risk.
