Scotcoin Advisory Panel and Other News

New Social Media Manager at Scotcoin

Scotcoin welcomes onboard Elizabeth Myles-Geddes as Social Media Manager.

Elizabeth has worked in digital marketing for 7 years with clients as diverse as Harvey Nichols, Heriot Watt University and the Google sponsored Start Up Grinds in Edinburgh and Glasgow. She currently runs her own consultancy advising micro businesses on all aspects of their digital strategy and content and in the past 6 months has helped 3 companies increase their revenues by up to 500% She holds an MSc in International Marketing specialising in Digital Marketing from Heriot Watt University and an Executive MBA from Leeds University.

Counterparty and DEX Market

The situation with the Counterparty Dex is the same as it’s always been – any coin on the protocol is beholden to the value of XCP, Counterparty’s token. You may not have picked up but both Bittrex and Poloniex have stopped trading XCP and TUX will cease trading altogether on 7th July. If you have any coin with them GET THEM OUT! As a result, the value has rapidly disappeared towards $0. We are working towards putting Scotcoin onto its own blockchain, but linked to value of over $5billion. We will no longer have a price which is indicated by a third-party digital currency and which is volatile.

Be assured these current XCP changes will have no adverse effect on Scotcoin  longer term. If you have any XCP you would like to sell, the Scotcoin Project will buy them at $2 per XCP which is more than the existing exchange price OR 10% above prevailing.

2018 is going to be an exciting year for cryptocurrency… 2017 saw:

 

  • The first property deal conducted in Scotcoin
  • Scotcoin’s price in pizza established (very important for late night coding!)
  • Creation of a new Scotcoin wallet video
  • Our website had a bit of a facelift
  • Right at the end: We had a successful Proof of Concept delivered.

As part of our ongoing commitment to security, the website recently had an overhaul including some work on the Scotcoin Exchange. You’ll now be able to buy Scotcoin directly from £Sterling.

 

Purchase of Scotcoin IP

The Scotcoin Project (TSP) is pleased to announce today that the Intellectual Property and all economic rights relating to Scotcoin have been bought from Scotcoin founder and first mover Derek Nisbet. The rights have been bought by Scottish businessmen Temple Melville and David Low for an undisclosed sum. The package consists of all rights to the name, use, trademarks and domain names relating to Scotcoin and The Scotcoin Project.
TSP has been granted the rights to develop Scotcoin as the cryptocurrency for Scotland and will be unveiling a number of initiatives over the next twelve months designed to increase the understanding, acceptability and usage of Scotcoin as a store of value and means of payment for an increasing range of goods and services.
Project Director Willie Fleming said “Today marks an important step in the evolution of Scotcoin. We are profoundly grateful to Derek Nisbet and applaud his vision. Now it is our job to carry on the work of making Scotcoin a viable alternative to sterling and educating Scots and the wider world about the advantages of strong cryptography, the blockchain and specifically Scotcoin. The Brexit vote underlines how important cryptocurrencies now are and how essential that we in Scotland have our very own – Scotcoin – to fall back on in times of uncertainty.”
