At the inception of VegasCoin the idea was to both put the power of money in the people’s hands just like bitcoin and many other alternative crypto currencies do, but also to give Las Vegas a new promotional tool for business and tourism.

As a local currency dedicated to Las Vegas, VegasCoin provides a platform to help keep money cycling inside the city.  Similar in ambition to AuroraCoin, a crypto currency created for the people of Iceland, VegasCoin seeks to gain acceptance in the local Vegas market while being traded on the larger international market.  In this capacity it is a great vehicle for promoting Tourism in Nevada.  Although the number of people who participate in Crypro Currency exchanges is relatively small, participants are international in scope and their numbers are rapidly growing.  Even if one does not buy and sell VegasCoin on an exchange its there and people see it.  It would be like having a Vegas Dollar appear on the Forex exchange.  That’s free advertising!  And where are you going to spend your VegasCoins?  One might start in the one city that they are accepted.  See how this could potentially boost tourism?


VegasCoin is not saturated and never will be.  We chose to use almost the same algorithm as litecoin whose total run equals 84,000,000 coins to our 100,000,000 coins. As of this writing this on March 7th 2014, VegasCoin is trading between $0.05 and $0.30 per coin, is listed on two exchanges, and provides a faster more secure system protocol than even bitcoin has.


If I have lost you dear reader I must apologize.  This letter is prefaced on the idea that you have some knowledge of what crypto currency and bitcoin even are.  If you do not I encourage some research and I have provided some links at the footer to get you started.  Without going into all the heady details I will explain it like this.  Crypto currency functions like digital cash without any or at extremely low transaction fees, VegasCoin functions in this capacity.

Our mission since day one has been to get VegasCoin created then accepted by local businesses that can then benefit from Vegascoin’s growth in popularity.  At this juncture we are in negotiation with a limo company, nightclub, and advertising company.  Future plans include meetings with Las Vegas casino & hotel Marketing Directors, Presidents, and Owners.


In closing, it took just under 25 days to create VegasCoin, the VegasCoin.co website, wallet, and get listed two major crypto currency exchanges.  Point being that VegasCoin is in its infancy but is moving very rapidly and people are getting excited.  Most who hear about the coin, instantly say what a great name!  The Las Vegas brand is already world famous and is overdue for its own currency.  Technology moves at a pace that will make your head spin, but those who do not adopt and change risk being left behind.  You don’t want to be the last fast food joint to put in a drive through window.

That would be me :)



Vegascoin It's not "Our Pool" just a company that worked with us to help launch it today, they are upgrading the server. It should be fixed soon, along with 2 other pool locations tomorrow.


They are building one, I also Own WeMineCoin.com but it's in no way tied to VegasCoin.  But this is my very first pool, I am trying... but learning a lot as I go.  Turns out my VPS couldn't take it, so now I just upgraded to the dedicated server.  http://VGC.WeMineCoin.com should run smooth now.


So what is it. did you Brian make the coin and are trying to make a pool company or did you just want a pool company so you made a coin that you could launch exclusively in your pool.?

I mean it is all ok But say what it is don't try to hide behind double talk..


|I think it is a good name dont get me wrong but you have to admit the way it was launched kind of gave you some exclusive control of the initial launch of the coin so you could instamine it instead of the heavy miners get a piece of the action until difficulty got high enough..

We have been mining many scrypt coins for the past months, about 5 months ago we built our first rigs and have been doing so.  Upon mining we noticed the pools can play a huge factor, so we " Hoped " to build a fast easy pool to help launch the coin.  I have an investor how paid for the development of WeMineCoin, and that is another side gig I am working with him on.  But I must admit we did not anticipate the amount of server load that the pool would be taking, it crashed the stratum server many times and forced us to think about closing the pool until we could upgrade it.  But we found a nice temp solution that restarted the pool every 5 minutes, not an ideal solution but a quick fix for the night.


Please understand, this is our very first coin and our very first pool.  Also we are working with everyone to try our best to release this as fair as possible, with no premine and yes some facebook fans (3 people) where able to help us test the pool and coin for small bugs before hand ( half a day or less ).  I hope you can understand our pain in trying to make everyone happy, but we are trying our best.  Also I have an offer up for anyone who can compile the windows wallet for me .1 BTC, you can find all the info on https://github.com/vegascoin.


Any other suggestions or questions, feel free and myself or Sven my server admin can address them right away.


Thank you
