Note: Complete, no need for more pledges.
As was stated in this thread, Peercoin is losing its primary market Bittrex. The Peercoin Foundation has recently been in contact with several exchanges in an attempt to find a replacement that is liquid.
We have reached a deal with one of the exchanges. We are not able to say which one it is, because the service agreement forbids it. But it is one of the few that has been talked about on Peercoin’s Telegram/Discord recently.
We will need the community’s help though to make it happen. We are raising for $60k, to meet the Listing Fee.
The Peercoin Foundation can pay for half of this. What we require is for the community to raise the other half:
- $30k in USDC
If we can spread the cost over 30 people, it should only cost about 1000 USDC per person, and even less if spread over more people.
If you would like to make a pledge to donate because you don’t have the funds yet, please make a post below stating the amount you’d like to pledge.
If you are ready to donate right now, please make your donation to the Peercoin Foundation’s ETH address below. We prefer that Ethereum-based USDC is donated.
You can verify this address on the Peercoin Foundation website here: https://www.peercoin.net/foundation PPC and BTC donation addresses are also listed at that link, but once again, we prefer to receive USDC for this to make things simpler for us.
DO NOT send Polygon-based USDC. The foundation DOES NOT have a Polygon donation address. If you do this, the coins you sent will be lost and we cannot recover them. Yes, someone already made this mistake, so we’re putting this warning up.
NOTE: Unfortunately, USA customers cannot be serviced at this exchange. Don’t let this change your mind though. Every exchange we’ve contacted refuses to service USA customers, so there aren’t many options to choose from right now.
This is of course because the SEC has been cracking down on exchanges that were allowing USA customers to trade unregistered securities. It seems most exchanges would rather abandon the USA right now than delist unregistered securities.
Even if you are located in the USA though and can’t take advantage of this new exchange, it would benefit Peercoin if you help us fundraise. You will be helping the rest of the world find a new place to trade, which should support the price and allow PPC to become more liquid.
