Sponsor a Keepod Kid Campaign Launches!

Sponsor a Keepod Kid

Sponsor a Keepod Kid Campaign

It is with great honor to announce the partnership of Keepod, Bitcoin, Mintcoin, XCurrency, Viacoin and W2Coin in joint efforts hosted by Mintcoin Fund to raise $5275 which will be used to bring computer access to 500 students while educating the public on what crypto currency is and how it is used.

Keepod.org (recently featured on BBC News) offers a technology which allows people to have their own personal computer settings stored in a small device which they can take and use anywhere in the world there is a computer with internet access.

With this program we will not only be sponsoring the keepod devices, but we will sponsor volunteers to refurbish and donate older computers, community training for continual support with the device, optimization of all computers to ensure a pleasant experience and online safety for the children.

Our goal is to sponsor 500 kids!

The cost to sponsor one child is just $10.55

How it Works:

By joining community efforts in this campaign Mintcoin will have the opportunity to work with other developers sharing the common  goal of increasing the awareness of crypto currencies and how they are used for thousands of people who have never heard of crypto currency before.

Each crypto community has selected a donation address for their team and is being supplied with marketing materials to assist in their communities promotion of the campaign. At the end of each week they will be responsible for changing donations into Bitcoin and submitting their communities donations to the Mintcoin Fund Moolah Storefront.

Once we receive each communities donations we will be issuing a press release announcing donations and contributions to the campaign. 

Volunteers Needed!

If you are interested in donating articles, press releases or social assets to this cause please join our team here.  All communities welcome to participate!

Let’s Talk about New York’s Bit License for a Minute

I have had several people reach out to me in the New York Bit Licenses proposal discussing the importance of addressing this and vocalizing our concerns on the subject matter so here I go.

One of my first courses in computer science was an introductory to the history of the internet.

One of the things that made the internet such a success is the governments decision to allow the internet to grow with minimal regulations on taxation while they had an opportunity to sit back and watch the internet take on its own life and develop into what it is today.

Sure in the beginning there were many “shady” happenings online but our community adapted. We implemented spam control, safe internet training materials, anti-virus, security measurements and worked together as a community to grow the internet to what it is today.

Now here we are as history repeats itself with another new technology called crypto currency and New York legislation is trying to implement regulations that will most definitely hinder New York’s participation in our growing community.

I believe it is the entire crypto communities duty to stand up and voice our concerns as one singular voice against this throughout social networks.

We need our voices to be heard loud and clear on this matter.

So I ask you. My fellow community members to make sure to interact, like, share and discuss the Bit license proposal at every given opportunity. Write, post. whatever you can do.

Keepod.org Campaign Team Members Needed!

Keepod.org Crypto Charity Campaign

Mintcoin is currently looking for a few crypto communities to work together to fund a Keepod.org project which will recycle old computers and bring internet access to 500 children who would not otherwise have these opportunities.

We believe that this initiative will help us bring positive attention to crypto currencies in general while contributing to something that will change these children’s lives. The total amount needed for donations will be $5,275.

We have chosen to open communications to PinkCoin, Viacoin and XCurrency communities for a partnership in this campaign.

If the communities agree we would like to work with you on the following initiatives (all of which are co-branded with contributing communities)

Keepod will assist our efforts by promoting our marketing materials across their channels as well as updating their website with our short donation message.

At the end of the campaign we will need to transfer all of the funds into a paypal payment.

The planned implementation date is February of 2015 (which happens to be Mintcoin’s Birthday)

We will be kicking off the campaign September 1st 2014

If your community is interested in participating please let me know as soon as possible so we can include you in the new Trello Project for this campaign.

The objective is to combine our developers, marketers and communities to ensure we meet these goals while educating the general public on crypto currency.

Campaign Objective:

This project will give children the opportunity to use a computer, providing them with basic computer skills and, by the time they became 12 years of age, learn about being safe while on the internet and to use it as a fun and effective tool. To reach these goals, enough computers for all children were required and for this a system was needed that would achieve with little maintenance. Learn More

This includes:

  • 500 Keepod Devices
  • 20 Keepod Ready Computers

Mintcoin PoS Rewards are a Crypto version of Dividends

The information provided below is opinion only and should not be considered factual without further independent research by the readers.

What is PoS (Proof of Stake)?

Proof-of-stake is a method of securing a cryptocurrency network through requesting users to show ownership of a certain amount of currency. It is different from proof-of-work systems that run hashing algorithms to validate electronic transactions. It is most commonly used as a supplement to proof-of-work in Peercoin[1] and a few other electronic currencies.” (including Mintcoin) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proof-of-stake

PoS Rewards are Similar to Dividends

A distribution of a portion of a company’s earnings, decided by the board of directors, to a class of its shareholders. The dividend is most often quoted in terms of the dollar amount each share receives (dividends per share). It can also be quoted in terms of a percent of the current market price, referred to as dividend yield.” http://www.investopedia.com/terms/d/dividend.asp

Reward Payment Cycle

It takes 20 days for your investment to mature.

What does Investment Maturity Mean?

The period of time for which a financial instrument remains outstanding. Maturity refers to a finite time period at the end of which the financial instrument will cease to exist and the principal is repaid with interest. The term is most commonly used in the context of fixed income investments, such as bonds and deposits.  http://www.investopedia.com/terms/m/maturity.asp
