ChrisJ from Feathercoin confirmed that BIPS (payment processor) is looking to add alt currencies
I received this email from GoCoin (payment processor)
Thanks for the outreach via GoCoin board member Jon Yantis. We are currently focusing our initial implementation on Bitcoin, however we do plan to expand that as others emerge and liquidity improves.
To help us analyze the opportunity with PPCoin, can you provide me some statistic regarding users, demographic and motivations to use as a transactional currency. For example, what would be some examples sites that you would see the user community rallying behind and using PPCoin to transact?
Thanks for your thoughtful response,
"I do appreciate the green positioning and we want to enable as many payment options as possible for our merchants … We simply need to consider our development priorities !

Hash rate indicates the level of PoW miner investment in Peercoin. Until Peercoin eventually relies primarily on PoS hashing, PoW will be used to bootstrap the coin. This graph indicates that more PoW mining power is being directed at the coin. This is one of the many symptoms that indicate that the user base of Peercoin is expanding (although a portion of the increase certainly comes from increases in mining gear power the past month or two).
Market Cap represents the total monetary investment in Peercoin, given as a function of (price x coin supply). This graph clearly shows that there is a steady stream of real-world money flowing into Peercoin. While Bitcoin has certainly helped Peercoin by raising the market caps of all cryptocurrencies (“A rising tide lifts all ships”), Peercoin has out-paced every other major alt-coin in % growth. We would expect Peercoin to eventually match and surpass Litecoin in the not-too-distant future as its energy-efficiency and security superiority are proven in the marketplace.
