What is Marscoin?
Currently, there are two attempts underway to establish the first human base on Mars. While technologically not impossible funding such a project (estimated at 6-20 billion) is a major obstacle. If you share our dream of making that first giant step for mankind a reality, then Marscoin might be something for you.
Simply by using Marscoin, a bitcoin alternative, you will automatically participate in serious boostraping efforts to colonize Mars.
We donated 350,000 Marscoins toMarsOne, a non-profit that attempts to build the first colony on Mars. With your help – by adopting Marscoin – we will be able to help fund mankinds first colony on Mars simply by kickstarting the financial system of the future Mars colony!
In addition, once the colony is set up MarsOne or a Mars colonist could take Marscoin to Mars and install it. That means that your Marscoins would continue to be yours on Mars, forever.Because Marscoin is a deflationary currency like Bitcoin your initial sum of Marscoins will grow in relation to the economy on Mars. You would participate in the wealth generation of an entire planet!Release date: January 27th, 2014
