[MIC] Explainations about MICoin
May 23, 2014, 11:26:42 pm

Also I am the guy behind MIC or MICoin : https://nxtforum.org/assets-board/%28ann%29%28micoin%29the-most-interesting-coin-in-the-world-pure-90-pom/msg26643/#msg26643

I think that I should explain myself and explain "What is this most interesting coin in the world".

What is MIC ?

It's a good question but there is as many answers as NXTers.
For some, it's only a faucet, a solution to have easy NXT.
For other, it's only a funny thing.

For me, it's the first project of "Plaisir & Valeur d'histoire" in relation with Nxt. It's collective Artwork, it's an experience.
I don't want to explain in the detail my vision of this creation. I think every body should find their own signification.
I can give keys : it speak about the "valuation of cryptocurrencies", about "my vision of the culture of NXT", about "the value of culture", and a lot of things. And it's speak about me, and about every meme creators.

I'm not a developer. I don't have any skills to help for the development of Nxt. It hurts me, I feel helpless. I'm not a trader (What the fuck is all this Asset of jl777) and I don't understand the technical issues of every thing. But I have skills.
I think since January how to help Nxt with my own skills. I'm an intellectual guy, historian and a little bit "artist". And I find how to help Nxt : I can help to build the NXT culture, our own culture. We need a soul, we need to build our own value.

We are decentralised, I don't want to give my value to the community. I want to do that a collective Artwork, MIC is the first decentralise Artwork of our community.



What is the future of MIC ?

First of all, the project MIC is only at the beginning. I launch it one week ago. I should distribute 9881 new stakes. I want to see 9881 and more new memes. MIC is not my possession, it's the salary of every "LOLers" of MICoin.
The project and the credibility of MIC should be true only when I distribute all the coins.



But MIC is not only a joke or an weird Artwork. It's a currency too. MIC can be "the Most Interesting Coin in the world" but it could be the "Monnaie Internationale pour la Culture" (Yes, it's in french, and? ;)). That means "International Currency for the Culture". But you can give the name as you want.

To build a real currency for the culture, I couldn't only say "Hey look, it's the currency for the culture. Are you ok ? And you can mine it, and I would be rich while I premined it."
MIC is based on a cultural object, an artwork. The distribution is fair and will be fair in the future. It could be a tool to help our culture to grow.



What is the value of the culture? Good question, I have no answer. In my opinion, the culture don't make real value, it gives meaning to human activities. We want to build "the nxt future" but we should have sense. Nxt community shouldn't be a empty tin, but a real human project.



But MIC has at the moment a real value. Some crazy guys post memes, some other more crazy buy MIC on the Asset Exchange. The value is incredibly high.
In my opinion, this means that the project MICoin as a value for the community. It's the first step. Now we should continue.

Ok but what's n(e)xt ?

MIC is not a decentralised project. There is not really planed next step. Everybody can take care about MIC, if nobody take care... It was only a Nxt adventure without tomorrow. It's not only my project, it's the project of everybody. You can do what you want with your MIC...

But I take care personally on MIC. If you want to help, there is some easy solutions :

1) First, you can post your memes on the last "blockchain" of MIC: https://nxtforum.org/assets-board/%28ann%29%28micoin%29the-most-interesting-coin-in-the-world-pure-90-pom/

I really like to see new memes every days. Continue, please!

2) You can buy the MIC on the asset exchange. The prices and the amount are not very important. It's a sign that you give a value of MIC.

Thanks to jl777, the bigger stakeholder of MIC!

3) You can use MIC for your own creative project. Ask for MIC donations. Bid MIC for the artists. You can ask a part of payments in MIC for your business.

In my part, from now, "Plaisir & Valeur d'histoire" sell every services or production in the cryptoworld in NXT or PVhistoire + 10 MIC.

4) You can help me with donation. If you like my project(s) or if you want to give some

You can donate MIC, NXT or other Assets to this particular account:
- Plaisir & Valeur d'histoire : NXT-E6NX-A5T6-85HM-94MCS (you can buy some PVhistoire Assets too. 1 PVhistoire = 1 CHF to buy service or products)
- PVH Culture Foundation : NXT-969E-APWA-MU85-8Z8AQ

The MIC genesis account is only a genesis account.



What is the difference between the both account?

The "Plaisir & Valeur d'histoire" is my business account. If you give there, you help me directly. It's means you help me to live (I like to eat every days) and you help me to develop the activities of my professional activities with Nxt.
If I receive enough, I can make new cultural projects and Artworks in relation with NXT like MICoin. I have already some ideas...

The "PVH Culture Foundation" is a fund to help the creation in general. It's strictly not for my own projects. I want to organise some art competitions, open to everybody. I want to give a Prize for that.
I want to experiment innovative solutions for the cultural funding in the new world of Nxt. For example, I want to organise votes with the MIC asset.



Why is that "PVH Culture Foundation" and not "NXT Culture Fund" ?

The culture more than every thing can't be centralized. I'm only Ludom, one poor guy. I don't want to trust every thing and I don't represent the NXT community. If you like my work to build a "Nxt culture" support me, if you have different ideas create your own "Foundation", if you don't care...



If you have question, I answer with pleasure here.
Soon, I will explain a second time everything on my website.

In conclusion, I want to promote three great cultural project on Nxt :

It is very important to have at least 2 cultural historians in the Nxt community. Remember, the Florence was not a city of the traders, it was a place of the culture.

Very interesting initiative to support an art environment in NXT. I will add to this with some artworks when I find the time.
My brain is kinda ticking the last days about how I could use my skills to help the Nxt community.... I find it very tough. The overlap with art/painting doesn't seem to be big. I wouldn't have come up with so cool ideas (The NXTdrop asset is also a great one).
If you need something for any specific idea, feel free to contact me. here is my website with my work.

I really like your project and ideas. Maybe we should go a step further and support via MIC and your asset and other assets (like NXTdrop) artists that create new content. I really like the memes on memegenerator but I think it's more interesting to see new memes created by the NXTCommunity. That would also attract people from reddit, 4chan and Co.  Thus we could combine the technical advances of NXT with the creativity of the Doge community and other communitys as well.

It's a good Idea but I don't know how to transform MIC to do that.

Can you explain more concretely your idea ?

I thought we could create a fund for artists and if they create new content they get paid for that from that fund. of course the community should decide how much of the fund goes to whom. Or maybe the other way around: Artists offer their skills (photoshop, photography etc.) for MIC. Probably it's also a good idea to create NXT fund for artists that put a little more effort to create content. Creating a meme is one thing but doing (professional) videos, music or paintings is probably a little harder and it would be motivating to get 'serious' money for that. Just thoughts...

Ok, I like the Idea. It could be some bounties for new memes. I think about that.

It's a great Idea !

The interest of MIC in the community is down. The number of Meme goes down on the "Topic blockchain".

I make the MIC transfers regularly, 177 transfers (15753k MIC)

Is there some interest on the project in the community ? If yes, could you explain how should continue MIC?

Should I change the rules?

Should I shut down the project?

I can continue the distribution, it's a pleasure for me. But if there is not interest from the NXT community, it's a wast of time.

I need your support, really!

I launch today a new thematic : The future is MIC. Post your memes if you want.

I think the idea is cool - and should keep going :D Then again, no other reply.... hm. I can't be the only one though.

There are some issues with how it currently works. Maybe if fixing some it'll pick up steam.

No.1 problem right now: The thread is very hidden - I never look into that board. I think people should see it, and also, people want that their memes are seen (the coins are a secondary motivator).
Maybe ask permission to put the Meme thread in the General board. I think it would make more sense anyways than having memes in the Asset corner.

2ndly: You should think about ways to make the community take part more. So that it's not only you chipping out the coins. Since I got some coins from you (even bought some) I could give them also... but I didn't really see a reason (since you give them out anyways).
I don't have a specific idea - but some rule that would encourage others to spend, would be great.

  2-b: Users using them to tip would also raise utility. With the current setup the coins are pretty useless for the receiver. The lose value over time, since why should one buy them? Maybe there could be additional benefits of having them?
  2-c: It is also not that easy to tip, since one has to start the client for this small transaction. A MI-tippbot would be really useful...

3rd issue: Also with no solution, but I'm not sure the "I dish out the same amount for any pic" really makes sense. OK, art is hard to judge :D but it kinda takes away a competition effect. And it allows anyone just to write "poop" on a meme and just get coins. Feels not right.
Also btw: Random rewards create more endorphins in the receivers brain :D

Lastly: I'm not such a fan of the topics. They don't leave much time ... maybe if they would be pre-announced weekly topics?
Then again, how I personally went anyways: Just did my thing and hoped you give coins for it :)

Definitely should keep it going though. I love that the Nxt community has such an project.
Hope more people chime in with opinions and suggestions.

I think you are doing a great job, but it keeps hard to make a group of people enthusiastic all the time. There will be periods of less interest, that's inevitable. Would be nice if you created a Twitteraccount and posted all the memes there. It would attrack people to nxtforum.org too.  :D

Maybe we can give you a childboard here: https://nxtforum.org/nxt-projects/. So you can post different topic for the different theme's. For example a new theme every month. I can discuss this in the moderator team.

Thanks guys for your ideas and support.

@farl4bit: The private section for MIC on the forum is a great idea. If it is possible, I take that and organise this section for the "meme visibility" and to launch some promotion projects.

This days, I don't have full of time for MIC. I continue the distribution.
But in some days, I want to launch some Projects with MIC.

First of all, a Meme competition is planed with public vote. The reward should be in NXT. And the vote use MIC: every transfers to an account count as a vote (one MIC, one vote), and you vote in the message of the transfer.

And then, with MIC recolted, we can organize other competitions!

About Twitter and social media, it's a good idea but I don't use personally this tools... But if some body want to twit the meme or create a MIC twitter account, no problem for me.
