Big Update - New Wallets



BLAZECOIN (BLZ)
 
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.

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 site that 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 the official site 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 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.
