GoCoin Project Updates
« on: August 05, 2014, 12:16:05 pm »

For those who remember about Nxt integration with GoCoin and are looking for it in mid-August:

I have received a note from Eric of GoCoin updating us as to the status of the project. It seems the activity and projects that are filling up their plate have made the anticipated integration goal of mid-August unrealistic.

He says that GoCoin is not at a point where they can add alt-coins at least until the beginning end of September and they will have to step on the brakes slightly.

We've been trying to schedule a time for Nxt to introduce some developers to them and that has been unsuccessful. After a missed appointment last evening, Eric suggests that we try to reschedule for the week of the 18th.

So, I will be suggesting a few times for that meeting and will keep you all posted with the outcome. I'm readjusting my thinking for the long haul.

I understand GoCoin is a payment processor. Does Coinomat or Moneypayment fulfill this role? I don't know much about either. Nxt > Fiat can also be done on CCEDK.com I suppose, though not automatically I don't think.

Maybe we can technically can do the same.

But the marketing of GoCoin is always welcome. They are making it possible to be able to pay in Merchants easily. We can profit from that.

Well, we are all a little disappointed that the integration didn't happen quickly, right?

We should take every opportunity to get NXT included in every payment system possible.  So, yes, Gocoin is still relevant, but they aren't the only kid on the block to play with.

Have you all seen this?

https://www.coinpayments.net/supported-coins

Has anyone had any experience with them?

Why don't we talk about this more? I posted everywhere about it on February 21. They've had NXT on their platform for 6 months. So, why are we still saying we are waiting for a payment processor to become successful with merchants?

"CoinPayments is the first payment processor to support ‪#‎NXT‬ a ‪#‎cryptocurrency‬ not descended from ‪#‎Bitcoin‬ codebase. http://bit.ly/1dcT9qU"

So, when Gocoin does include NXT what will be the outcome? Will we say "oh, that's nice" and talk about it for one day and start finding other reasons why merchants aren't accepting NXT?

I think we're missing something here...

I was able to integrate into a wordpress directory theme without issue. You could also integrate into a Shopping Cart Theme as well http://www.premiumpress.com/shoptheme/.

What is the progress about GoCoin and NXT?

PayPal has announced partnerships with the three largest payment processors in the bitcoin space: BitPay, Coinbase and GoCoin.

Well, since Cointropolis set it up, I'm assuming it was all bullshit.

Hmmm. I don't really have an update for you. I backed out of the communications when they weren't going anywhere and let others handle it better. That was many weeks (months?) ago.

I do have an opinion to share. I do not believe it was a scam and I do believe the arrangement was entered into by both GoCoin and Cointropolis  with good intentions.

During my communications with both parties I came to the conclusion that enthusiasm might have caused some of the subsequent problems. Cointropolis came crashing down after a huge success and hasn't mustered any more forward momentum after their losses in many areas. GoCoin overextended (IMHO) their reach and couldn't manage all of the technical aspects of their commitment. They also became enamored with other lucrative ideas and those interests seemed to be taking a higher priority during the time I was communicating with them. After a few blow-offs of scheduled conference calls where I had a dev lined up and staying up way past his bedtime, I made the decision that I might not be the best person to pull this off and left the responsibility with others who were participating with me.

I was also very frustrated that GoCoin asked for a sizable amount of money to "help" with the big project of integration. I declined because IMO it was an agreed upon and done deal. Indeed they got quite a boost from Nxt on stage at PayExpo! I was subsequently approached by at least two other NXTers who excitedly told me that GoCoin was ready to move forward if we would just pay to help the process. I explained my position and that I had a dev lined up ready to donate his time and had been rebuffed. As far as I can tell nothing ever came of those situations. I believe we are still on their agenda - just a very, very low priority.

My further opinion is that we as a community should definitely view the situation with Cointropolis as a very unfortunate and costly loss. But we are compounding that loss when we label it and tout it as a scam when we have no proof. By extension, we label our arrangement with GoCoin as a scam. Instead one party is just not following through with a commitment or honoring their word. We have enough legitimate scams. Let's just see this as bad business and move on :)

There are so many exciting things to focus on!

Would this help encourage them instead of them feeling like they have to learn a new API?
