Title: [ANN] Blazecoin **BLZ** - Big Update - New Wallets - Not your mom's wallet
Post by: wpstudio on May 28, 2014, 03:43:25 PM
Big Update - New Wallets

Blazecoin is a mined and traded digital currency backed by the Blazecoin foundation that supports volunteer fire departments around the world.
BlazeCoin has an exciting future ahead of it. But before I go into the coin, let me tell you a little story. Did you know that a large majority of the fire departments in the United States and around the world are volunteer based. Some of those fire departments raise their operating expenses through bingo, door-to-door fundraising, "fill the boot" campaigns, and other creative ventures. But many fire departments are unable to raise the necessary funds due to zoning regulations and other roadblocks.
The average ambulance/medic unit starts at about $150,000 USD and goes up from there. The average fire engine starts at $400,000 and goes up... many times 3 to 4 times that cost. The Blazecoin foundation, which stands behind the Blazecoin, seeks to raise funds to assist these fire departments through grants for equipment and training opportunities. Blazecoin's launch included a premine of 1% which will be used for "matching-funds" during the fund drives.
Over the next few days, we will be opening up much more of the plan for Blazecoin. Blazecoin officially launched on May 23rd with a direct mailing to the International Fire Chief Association mailing list and was joined at launch with a number of local firefighters and volunteers.
So where does this 413 block reward come from? For many years, one of our developers worked as a volunteer firefighter out of station 413. This number is meaningful to him as a firefighter and we thought this would be the perfect way to honor fellow firefighters and volunteers who risk their lives on a daily basis to save others.

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

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.

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 (

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 account (, Official Site (, and/or the IRC #blazecoin room ( so that you will have the latest information as soon as possible.  We have a number of additional features, enhancements, and projects that are unannounced at this time but when we get closer to release we will make sure everyone knows.
