Examining the world of cryptocurrencies, you will notice how 2013 has given birth to a great number of new coins. Many are just based on a meme, a momentary trend, or just having a nice name. Actually, 2014 will see new coins every day and the progressive death of many of them, simply for one reason: a peer to peer coin bases its existence on mining, able to guarantee the continuity of the coin, and credibility, in other words the ability to bring innovative features to the market.
It’s interesting to notice how the major coins have passed the test of time. Among these iXcoin, also known as IXC, born in 2011, clone of Bitcoin, has raised in 6 months from 1 to 11 USD cent. However, it’s still a ridiculous price for it. The reason? This coin has continued to be steadily mined for more then two years, but its creator decided not to advertise it too much, letting many investors out of the game.
Things have changed during the last months. iXcoin is now closely mirroring Bitcoin updates. It has a new developing team (Frictionlesscoin, also known for developing NEX). New features, like colored coins, are going to be added within a few months. Even Ghash.io / Cex.io has shown an interest in it accepting iXcoin as payment for their mining, evaluating in this days the possibility to start the trading of iXcoin with zero fee on CEX.io. iXcoin home page: www.ixcoin.co
