Australian Litecoiners' Corner
« on: May 04, 2014, 04:27:07 AM »
Here is Australian Litecoiners' Corner!! I answer the phone. I answer emails.

My mob -- IndiaMikeZulu -- doesn't 'fade away' after a little while.

We hope to forge a lasting network of crypto-folk in Australia, where -- we feel -- there is an over-riding need for all crypto folk to co-operate.

We are gleefully struggling with a 'crypto-town project' in Denmark, Western Australia.

Any and all assistance will be gratefully accepted.

It's an almost unique experiment in 'on-da-street crypto development.' Lots of non-Net-centric approaches being trialled.

At the Easter Market, I sold cherry chutney to the wife of the local President of the Chamber of Commerce' -- in Litecoin, which she had never heard of two minutes before. She pushed the 'send' button on my smartphone wallet.

On-da-street crypto development!! I will explain as we go. This morning, I am off to Denmark, Western Australia, to meet with the Small Business Development Office of the Chamber of Commerce, the Manager of the Community Resource Centre, and the owner of a local supermarket.

It looks as though Litecoin will be accepted at the Community Centre, which is a reward for our hard work. Report tomorrow.

I think we have doubled the number of Litecoin accepters in Australia!!

The Denmark Community Resource Centre now accepts Litecoin.

The smaller IGA supermarket in town will run a 'trial": you can pay in Litecoin for an hour on Tuesday evenings -- the quietiest hour of the week.

And I had a long conversation with the Business Facilitation Officer of the Chamber of Commerce. Ya know when someone's questions tell you that they 'get it'?? Well, this gentlemen gets it!!

Some consolidation in the next few weeks.

Mark

Consolidation Phase:

gonna buy chocolates for the checkout operators who will have to use the Litecoin wallets in the supermarket. We just figured out that you can tape a copy of the QR code to the front counter. The device that has the supermarket's Litecoin wallet on it  doesn't need to be on and synched and sitting on the counter. It can be sitting in the boss's desk.

D'uh -- I have so much to learn about the technology of cryptos.

Okay!

What I have in mind is trying to connect city crypto-folk to holidays in the country. We have Bitcoin marked for this project, but just a half a dozen energetic Litecoiners in Oz could change the face of Australian crypto-coining in favour of Litecoin.

Check this out (I hang out with some CGB guys.)

Hey, Cards4coins! Yeh, seems useful. We may use them in the Crypto Town Project forthwith.

Where are you? I sure would like to chat, to exchange some ideas.

My partner says you prypto guys work hard.

I grew up in Inverell.

Will have a think, and post soon.

Cards4coins!

The Denmark Project is moving now to the Bitcoin-brings-in-tourists phase. Our budget is tiny, but there is a Mitre 10 in Denmark. To buy a prypto for Mitre 10, and raffle it for one satoshi would be good marketing.

Have you considered any other mail-products-bought-with-cryptos ventures? We have a Litecoiner definitely interested.

P.s.: Noble Coin is 'Australia-based.' Would you consider accepting Nobles for your cards?

Any Australian Litecoiners wanna be involved, starting mid-Winter, in a trial crypto-for-bullion project?

We are 95% certain to start a 'pilot project' whereby you can buy just one product -- 10-oz bars of silver bullion -- with cryptos. The more people queue to offer support, the more likely that the project will succeed.

It's a five-star Australian company, and the bars are insured in the post.

Well, change is the only constant!! We have a bunch of projects still underway, but we are gonna wind down the Denmark Project a little early. We have learned what we wanted to know. It's hard and expensive work, and we've been a little disappointed because not a single crypto-coiner in Australia offered help.

But we lasted over twenty weeks, and had a good deal of success.
