Phoenixcoin(PXC) a Digital P2P Cryptocurrency

9 posts in this topic

Hello guys,

Let me introduce myself first. My name is Nawazish. I am a team member of a cryptocurrency called Phoenixcoin (PXC). 

 

 


 

Introduction to Phoenixcoin(PXC):

 

Phoenixcoin is an open source decentralised P2P cryptocurrency. It was released in May of 2013 as a further development of Litecoin, a popular fork of Bitcoin. Phoenixcoin together with Feathercoin and Worldcoin founded the UNOCS (United Open Currency Solutions), an alliance aimed at joint development and promotion of these cryptocurencies. Unfortunately, the alliance fell apart by September of 2013 due to many development and management related mistakes. The lead developer, project supervisor and community manager quit soon after the UNOCS collapse. The new lead developer is John Doering aka Ghostlander who pushes Phoenixcoin forward with a high level of transparency and community involvement.

Phoenixcoin is a digital currency for everyone. No need to buy very expensive hardware to generate (mine) it. Popular computer video cards and even processors do the job just fine. Only 9% of the total coin supply have been produced by this moment. In general, Phoenixcoin is an easy, fast and reliable way to send money worldwide.

Introduction to Cryptocurrencies/Cryptocoins:

Cryptocurrencies use peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority or banks; managing transactions and the issuing of coins is carried out collectively by the network. Almost all of the crypotcurrencies are open-source; Their design is public, nobody owns or controls coins and everyone can take part. Through many of their unique properties, Cryptocoins allow exciting uses that could not be covered by any previous payment systems.

Some of the great features of them are,

1. Instant Peer to Peer Transfer

2. Worldwide transfer with in minutes.

3. Very low transaction fees.


How Phoenixcoin/Cryptocurrencies work?

1.Wallet:

As a new user, you can get started with Phoenixcoin without understanding the technical details. Once you have installed a phoenixcoin wallet on your computer, it will generate your first Phoenixcoin address and you can create more whenever you need one. You can disclose your addresses to your friends so that they can pay you or vice versa. In fact, this is pretty similar to how email works, except that Phoenixcoin addresses should only be used once but it's on the user if he wants to keep using the old address or not.

2.Blockchain:

The block chain is a shared public ledger on which the entire Phoenixcoin network relies. All confirmed transactions are included in the block chain. This way, Phoenixcoin wallets can calculate their spendable balance and new transactions. The integrity and the chronological order of the block chain are enforced with cryptography. http://explorer.phoenixcoin.org/ allows you to navigate the Phoenixcoin's blockchain.

3.Transactions/Private keys:

A transaction is a transfer of value between Phoenixcoin wallets that gets included in the block chain. Phoenixcoin wallets keep a secret piece of data called a private key or seed, which is used to sign transactions, providing a mathematical proof that they have come from the owner of the wallet. The signature also prevents the transaction from being altered by anybody once it has been issued. All transactions are broadcast between users and usually begin to be confirmed by the network in the following 2 minutes, through a process called mining. All the transaction are irreversible and can't be undone.

4.Mining/Transaction Processing:

Mining is a distributed consensus system that is used to confirm waiting transactions by including them in the block chain. It is the process of making computer hardware do mathematical calculations for the Bitcoin network to confirm transactions and increase security. It enforces a chronological order in the block chain, protects the neutrality of the network, and allows different computers to agree on the state of the system. To be confirmed, transactions must be packed in a block that fits very strict cryptographic rules that will be verified by the network. These rules prevent previous blocks from being modified because doing so would invalidate all following blocks. Mining also creates the equivalent of a competitive lottery that prevents any individual from easily adding new blocks consecutively in the block chain. This way, no individuals can control what is included in the block chain or replace parts of the block chain to roll back their own spends. As a reward miners can collect transaction fees for the transactions they confirm, along with newly created Phoenixcoins. Mining is a specialized and competitive market where the rewards are divided up according to how much calculation is done.

5.Trading/Exchanges:

Trading is the process of selling and buying your coins. Trading can be done on Cryptocoin Exchanges where people can buy and sell. currently https://www.cryptsy.com/ & https://www.coinex.pw are the two Exchanges that offer variety of Cryptocoins to be Exchanged against Bitcoin(BTC) & Litecoin(LTC). Once you get Bitcoin or Litecoin you can then trade them to USD or EUR using https://btc-e.com/ or https://crypto-trade.com/

In Short Trading is the life of these coins because this is the reason they even exist and have some value.
To see the average trading value of various coins see this site. http://coinmarketcap.com/

6.Pricing and Market Behaviour:

The Market behaviour is directly proportional to the developement of the coin. If the coin developers keep developing new services for it people start investing in the coin thus making the price rise. But when there is no or slow developement with no big goals people start moving away and selling there coins that makes the prices to sink down. In short prices completely depend on the interest of people.

Moving you to our Your Announcements forum -- this does not belong in our off-topic forum.

 

 

Why would anyone want to use your product rather than any of the numerous alternatives?  You mention that your product is "a further development of Litecoin", but what do you actually offer that isn't already provided by Litecoin (which itself appears to offer little advantage over any other bitcoin implementation)?

Why should we care about this?  Why would it be important for this to be done, and given your participation in the previous failed attempt why should we trust you with it (or to properly manage your actual product) in future?

Well thanks for moving this to a relevant section. The point behind all of these new cryptocurrencies is to make a more better, fast, and reliable currency then bitcoin or litecoin. But many people these days make cryptocurrencies because they lost the chance to get Bitcoin or Litecoin in there early days so to make some money they are trying to re-write the history. And many of those got successful in that. The biggest example for that is Megacoin(MEC) that reached to a level of 1$ starting from 1 cent in a five months time frame. Feathercoin and Worldcoin also reached 50 cents But PXC didn't do that because last developers abandoned the project.

 

The last failed attempt was made by the Developers who had only one goal and that was to scam people. And they got Successful in there goal aswell. They left PXC alone after that but Ghost lander who also contributed in another successful cryptocurrency known as Feathercoin(FTC) took the charge and made this coin even more stable and stronger then before. This is one of the most stable cryptocurrency now that you will ever encounter. There are many more features that are gonna be added in the next wallet release for PXC but only those people who understand cryptos can know there importance. And we are now working on taking this coin to next level by developing an online multiplayer game for it that will integerate cryptocurrencies as an ingame credit.

 

Well I have posted an ad for our game development in classifieds if any one wants to know about it plz refer here  http://www.gamedev.net/classifieds/item/2739-phoenixcoinpxc-innovative-game-development-need-a-team/

Uhm, at 11uBTC/PXC you're going to have a tough call, but with that difficulty and since I'm playing with CL lately, I might give this coin a shot... even tough given  avatar for your phoenix... taken out from an RPG? ... this looks very much like a jokecoin to me. So it will be competing with DOGE in my house ;P

Isn't 90secs a bit tough to network propagation?

After reading your post you seem to be much of a newbie in crypto world. Phoenixcoin is almost a year older then Doge so it would be foolish to compare it with Doge. Phoenixcoin is also at the lowest level of it's price (Thanks to the big dumpers). A month back it was over 10 cents so it is the best time to Mine or buy it. Now If we talk about avatar then I can honestly say that there is nothing new in it. We need to make a good looking avatar. We are currently focusing on big things so we don't have time to concentrate on these little things. After all it's not a pump & dump.

 

90 Secs are more then Enough for network propagation. I can proudly say that this is the most Stable coin in the cryptocoins world. This coins also has the capability to tackle sites like coinchoose or Coinwarz.

 

Sorry if my words were a little harsh in the start.wink.png
