Gcoin Gaining Mainstream Adoption
What is GCoin?By: S. Gupta (+ developer updates below)
GCoin is aiming to be included on the list as one of the first digital currencies to go mainstream.
The developers behind this have tried to look at some of the drawbacks and criticisms of other cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and tried to better them.
What Makes GCoin Different?The barrier to entry into the system for some of the currencies is quite high. Bitcoin for example requires a complex and expensive machine to mine Bitcoin.
In the case of GCoin, even a modest machine can be used to mine it so almost anyone who is interested can join in and start earning GCoin.
How Many GCoins Will Be Available?All the cryptocurrency algorithms come with a built in limit to the maximum number that can be produced. One of the disadvantages (or advantages – depending on your perspective) of these currencies is that they don’t have many coins in circulation and can be extremely volatile in price because of it. Bitcoin for example has seen valuations double and then promptly halve again in a matter of a few days.
GCoin has looked to fight this inherent volatility by increasing the number of currency in circulation. A total of 200 billion GCoins can enter into circulation before it hits the maximum limit.
If everything works out then the large distribution of GCoin will insulate it from volatility, increasing both investor and consumer confidence in the currency.
Where Can You Spend/Use GCoins?This is one area that the GCoin foundation is working on at full pace to get the acceptance level of its currency on par with Bitcoin and then look to surpass it. There are casino games like Slots that can be played with GCoin currently (see below) with an app and wallet available in the Google Play store.
Bitcoin has led the path in becoming a credible currency and one that is accepted across a wide variety of companies and countries. Being accepted as valid tender by companies like Dell, Overstock.com and other corporations has added a lot to its credibility as well as the cryptocurrency movement as a whole.
Alternative currencies may have a tough road ahead of them and the only way to win this race is to provide a compelling, safe, widely distributed and readily accepted option, and Gcoin is striving to make a difference in the competitive realm of cryptocurrency. Visit the main Gcoin Website.
