A group of developers has recently launched a ready-to-move cryptocurrency ecosystem that offers everything from provident investments to decentralized wallet services.
Titled NeuCoin, the new service-cum-altcoin seems like any other cryptocurrency, wishing to dethrone the mighty Bitcoin from its top position. But, as one digs a little deeper, he finds out things that make NeuCoin something more than a value carrying asset.
For instance: the altcoin claims to be a whole ecosystem from day one, offering people an accessible service to obtain and use digital tokens in a homogenous environment. As it openly declares, the coin wants to be taken seriously in terms of adoption, a reason why it has announced a number of distinctive — and never-seen-before — features in its announcement.
The first and the foremost among them is MyNeuCoin, a wallet that is marketed as a fusion of Coinbase and Blockchain.info: meaning it is intuitive like Coinbase but never holds the coins of its users (like Blockchain.info). Not only it disables MyNeuCoin from having any control over the users’ funds, it also enables users to access their coins freely, with a safe yet simple login.
This feature is quickly followed by yet another distinctive service — a method that is hopefully borrowed from the banks’ provident fund schemes, where a user deposits money into his account for a specific time and, in return, receives an additional interest amount upon the withdrawal. NeuCoin literally replicates this feature in its “Growth Accounts” service.
Dan Kaufman, co-founder of the NeuCoin Project had this to say on launch:
After a year and a half of hard work, we’re excited to finally see NeuCoin come alive. We can’t wait for the crypto community to see how this technology can be made easy and fun for regular people – the MyNeuCoin wallet, the Growth Accounts that let everyone be part of mining, and very soon GetNeuCoin that explains crypto to regular people and gives them a few coins for free.
NeuCoin isn’t just another coin – it’s a whole ecosystem of consumer-facing services – all aimed at growth and acquiring lots of mainstream users from outside the crypto world. It’s about reaching new audiences in a fun way and putting crypto in the hands of millions of regular users through games and social media.
Have you used NeuCoin yet? Did you take part in the presale? What have been your experiences so far? We can’t wait to dig a little deeper as things move forward. One thing we can say, however, is that it is projects like this that are going to be what carries cryptocurrency into the mainstream, so well played NeuCoin.
