Did you know that Blazecoin has its own social network? It is called "The Station"

http://station.blazeco.in/WPStudio

You can read a little bit about it before signing up. http://station.blazeco.in/about.php

Integrated web wallets, tipping accounts, and a growing social network to help support the Blazecoin community.

 

You can still get all the news and important bits of information here on CryptoCoinTalk... but if you want to talk more fire stuff, this is a great way to do it.

I was contacted out-of-the-blue by a new exchange letting me know they had already listed Blazecoin.  I hadn't heard of this exchange before and I think its really new.  But wanted to let you all know as soon as I could.

Already trading at 400 satoshi ... pretty cool

 

Congrats.  Looks like the coin is catching on fire!  Of course, this is a controlled burn.   :)

Just pushed a post on the trust factor in crypto currency over on the Blazecoin website.

http://blazeco.in/news/#news4

This is the precursor post that will lead into my next post where we can talk more about why Blazecoin was created, what is the purpose of the volunteer fire department matching grant fund, how it will work, and what sort of incentives are being prepared to be rolled out to early adopters of the Blazecoin.

Let me know what you think of the post.  Do you agree with it?  Do you think we need more transparency?  More anonymity?

I thought I would take a moment to take a look back at what has gone on behind the scenes of the Blazecoin development cycle.


  • Blazecoin launched very smoothly with initial miners gobbling up the first 100 blocks (which only had 13 coins in each). This was our attempt at making an even start for those that were available at the time of launch. As news spread people joined in and after the first 100 blocks were found, the block rewards returned to the current reward size of 413 coins per block.
  • Blazecoin launched will a full featured website with everything needed to explain the inner workings of the coin.
  • Windows, Mac, and Linux (github) wallets were available at launch.
  • Multiple seed nodes were available at launch to make it as easy and fast as possible for people to join in the mining.
  • An official mining pool was release on launch (http://mining.coreco.in) and will remain open and available for the life of the coin. 4 other pools joined the launch.
  • A Blazecoin dice game was available at launch for any miners who were looking to have a little fun with their newly mined coins.
  • Twitter (main communication), Facebook, Google+, and a Reddit (/r/blazecoin) all were ready for launch
  • A Blazecoin-PHP library was available on launch for anyone looking to build and integrate Blazecoin into web application was available in github. Some of the capabilities were demonstrated on the Blazecoin API sitethat keeps track of hashrate, difficulty, current block number and more.
  • A full Blazecoin Block Explorer and a more Block Crawler were both available on launch.
  • A day after launch the ability to print out Blazecoin Paper Wallets was made available.
  • A day after the launch an entire social network for Blazecoin sprung up at station.blazeco.in that offered a simply way of sharing things that were going on in the Blazecoin community and to tip each other.
  • Less than three days after launch Blazecoin was listed on two different exchanges Cryptoine & Coin-Swap (BLZ-BTC - BLZ-DOGE)
  • The Blazecoin IRC #blazecoin channel has its own IRC tipping bot, so if you need a quick wallet just join the IRC chat room and ask the @firealarm what about your Blazecoin address. (You can simply type !help)

 


I'd have to say its been a pretty busy few days. But we've got a ton of things in the works for the coin which I'm listing a roadmap in the next post.

In the last post we took a look back on the first week of Blazecoin. In this post I wanted to talk about what steps are next for Blazecoin. Some of these steps are almost done and some are currently in the works. Let us know if there are things you would like to see happening with the coin either on Twitter or over on IRC.


  • New designs coming for the Paper Wallet Generator
  • Rebuild of this news area
  • Additional mining pools being added. We are specifically seeking out pools in certain locations to make sure all Blazecoin users can find a pool with a low ping rate to connect
  • Rebuild of the QT wallet with additional features and capabilities
  • Getting listed on larger exchanges. This will happen once the "noise buzz" raises to a higher level.
  • Expanding the Blazecoin API to integrate into several shopping cart systems to make it easier for merchants to accept Blazecoin
  • Releasing a "Mining for Beginners" and "Crypto/Digital Currency for Beginners" sections to the Blazeco.in Site. We will also be releasing these as ebooks on the Kindle and for download.
  • We have several press interviews (radio/tv) scheduled for the North Dakota region. Why North Dakota? Because there are several volunteer fire departments that are struggling to keep up with the oil boom and Blazecoin is going to be supporting a fund drive for some of the stations. This will help drive traffic and new users to Blazecoin as well as oil money donations to the project.
  • Android wallet version to "mobilize" the transfer of Blazecoins
  • In the coming days I will be announcing a unique new interest-building investment plan with Blazecoin that will benefit the early adopter miners who are joining the community during these early stages.

Several of these features will require updates to the source code as we proceed down the development roadmap. So please pay attention to the Twitter accountOfficial Site, and/or the IRC #blazecoin room so that you will have the latest information as soon as possible.

I've got the new code up and running on some of my linux boxes...  Today I should have the Mac and Windows builds.  But just to tease you a bit, here's a quick look at the new wallet.  (Special thanks to the hard work of the Worldcoin team for developing a much better looking wallet that Blazecoin was able to utilize.)  Lots of good stuff in this update.

I had one question... which logo is the official logo?  I see two logos being used.  The one circle logo and the fire logo.  Personally, I like the fire logo better, but for marketing purposes it might be best to go with one logo to keep things simple for people... just my opinion.

Good question... eventually it will migrate to only the "fire logo"... but because part of the coin's purpose is to reach out to people who are unfamiliar with crypto-digital currency.  I felt we needed a "coin feel" (with a phoenix rising from the 'fire ashes').  In future promotions and moving forward (and a really cool fire-proof cold storage wallet that is coming soon) the logo will be focused on the flaming shield logo.
