Nearly 50% of Pinkcoin’s Staked Blocks Contain Side-Staked Donation Outputs, Plus More Exciting Network Statistics

To Celebrate, PINK kicks off the New Year with a Digital Arts / Meme Contest worth over 100k PINK in prizes

That’s right you heard clearly. Nearly half of the PINK network’s active staking community is utilizing the most altruistic technology known to crypto: Side-Staking. If you missed all the Side-Staking hype have no fear; it’s the simple and beautiful concept of donating your staking rewards automatically to 1, 10, or even 100 other PINK wallets of choice, all free of transaction fees. Every donation is voluntary and simplified for even first-day crypto users to easily fine tune their staked rewards to share with others. Utilizing Side-Staking features, any PINK wallet holder can donate an adjustable percentage of their staked returns to their entire family, friends, or even a noble stranger.

Courtesy of the legendary wizard of the ages, the honorable pink-town hero, Astrych, several key PINK network statistics have been mapped out for the Pink Community to explore and enjoy. Below, the total percentage of staked returns which contain blocks with Side-Stake transactions has been charted out. Pinkcoin has currently surpassed 40% of staked blocks containing donations for other PINK users, and is currently making a run to surpass 50%, a new all time record! Bears bring out the cares in these parts.

As you may remember, last fall came the debut of the much anticipated FPoS 2.0 update, which aimed to free up more PoS rewards for moderate wallet holders while cutting back on the computing power necessary for larger staking balances. To accomplish this, FPoS 2.0 requires 100k PINK coin blocks to participate; rewards are 50% larger as well as more frequently rewarded during FPoS hours. To offset the imbalance, FPoS 2.0 is only active for 4 hours each day. Below is a chart which compares the average PoS difficulty with the average FPoS 2.0 difficulty. The results show that a heavy influx of husky PINK users have begun solely targeting FPoS 2.0 stakes; difficulty has increased steadily over the past 100 days, and continues to climb. The more that coin blocks on the network are combined into 100k chunks to target FPoS 2.0 rewards, the more the overall coin weight that had been competing with sub-100k balances is reset, allowing more opportunities for PoS rewards to be earned by moderate holders. As demonstrated by the chart below, PoS difficulty has continued to lower over the past 100 days, steadily freeing up more PoS rewards exclusively for moderate PINK wallets.

Zooming out all the way, using the chart below, we can see that although the average difficulty of FPoS has increased since the FPoS 2.0 update in Oct ’18, the average FPoS difficulty since it’s debut in April ’17 has been significantly reduced. For huskier wallet balances, FPoS 2.0 is freeing up a magnitude of computing power that is now no longer necessary.

Even more cool statistics and charts can be found by visiting the wizards lab on GitHub. Huge shout-out to Astrych for making these statistics easy to read and readily available for the Pink Community!

The Great Pink Buffalo Holds PINK Fundraiser in Support of Sophie Cornellier

Sophie
A few days ago, on Pinkcoin’s official discord channel, a community member came forward with a noble question for the community:
“A friend of mine (Sophie Cornellier) was recently diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer, she’s a Canadian citizen but she’s living in Puerto Rico on a sailboat. As everybody knows, treatments for cancer in the US are ridiculously expensive 6 treatments would be around 76,000 USD. Since she has been out of Canada for more than 6 month, she is not admissible for free healthcare, and furthermore, she can’t get out of Puerto Rico because of her state of health. So she’s stuck having to pay for her treatments out of her own pocket. Some friends created a GoFundMe page for her, but then I remembered about Pinkcoin, and was wondering if there’s anything this community can do to help.” -CryptoSailor
We here at Pinkcoin say there is definitely something we can do to help. As such, The Great Pink Buffalo will be hosting a PINK donation address for Sophie Cornellier. For the next 3 weeks donations will be collected, and at the end of the first donation drive the donated coins will be purchased OTC and converted into funds to be sent to Sophie’s GoFundMe page. As Sophie will be needing ongoing treatments for up to a year, the donation address will be live during that timeframe and any donations sent will be immediately forwarded to accounts set-up by Sophie to receive them. As of today Sophie’s GoFundMe page has raised 1/10th of the total needed for her to
31394864_15318416960_rreceive life saving treatments for her cancer. Lets show her that great PINK generosity that makes difficult obstacles to overcome, completely disappear. If you’d like to participate and change somebody’s life for the better today, Send PINK donations or set your Pinkcoin desktop wallets to side-stake to:
(even the smallest donation, or just a tiny fraction of your side-stakes–any amount–will help Sophie reach her goals of putting cancer behind her)

More details on Sophie Cornellier’s unfortunate predicament can be found via her GoFundMe page (translated from French):

Sophie’s Fight Against the Crab

Sophie Cornellier, “aka captain of S/V Mångata”, received a first diagnosis of breast cancer less than a month ago. At first, she’s been told that it was stage 2, possibly 3. We can’t waste any time, it must be investigated: biopsy, MRI, markers…

Sophie, a warrior, decided to go for the bi-lateral mastectomy. She don’t want to take any chance. Lets remove that crab! The tattoo that will cover the scars is already chosen.

The surgery was planned for July 11th or 13th.

Monday July 10th, she met with the oncologist. News was not good. Impossible to go to surgery now.

The diagnosis is more precise. It is HER2 positive breast cancer. It is very aggressive, fast spreading and the possibility that there is cancer cells spreading in all her body is highly considered. Many tumors have appeared in the last weeks. The axilla nods are affected, the mass in her left breast is big, the right breast have at least 3 sites that will need to be followed every 4-6 months… It will take chemotherapy, something she did not want at first. The regimen that is proposed is the most up-to-date, the most effective treatment. It is called TCHP. It involves 6 cycles of injections in a Mediport that brings the meds directly into her hearth. After, depending on the response of the tumor, surgery might be possible.

The cost for the pre-adjuvant treatment, as it is called, is 76K$US.

Sophie is from Québec. She is born in Québec, grew up there, studied, worked, she pays her taxes, her 2 kids are born there. So… Why on hearth she doesn’t come to Québec to be treated, where it would be free? Why does she stay in San Juan, Puerto Rico, where the medical fees are so high?

The reason is that Sophie left the province of Québec for more than 183 days in a row and she is not outside the province to study, work or to do an internship. She is not anymore admissible to the provincial medical insurance (RAMQ) for now and the delay to be admissible is 3 months following her return. But, even before she comes back, she needs to find an oncologist that will accept to take her as a patient, will made all the recommendations to the RAMQ and will accept to follow the regiment that is already in place with the team in Puerto Rico. All this has to be done fast and most of all, we can not skip a cycle. Every treatment must be administered every 21 days. During that 3 months, she will have to cover the fees anyway.

And by the way, it is a misconception to think that the fees in Puerto Rico are more expensive, on the contrary, they are similar to the costs that are charged in Quebec for the same treatment.

But the main reason is that her condition doesn’t allow her to travel right now. It is simple, her oncologist won’t let her travel outside the territory of Puerto Rico in her actual condition.

Our only solution is to pay the fees on American soil. No other choice.

Sophie has a very good mood. She believes in her chance to be cured, even if this crab is going fast. She will go faster, she’s a fighter. The team who took her in charge is amazing and they are trying to help her as much as they can. She’s having great friends surrounding her and helping her. As a good fighter and warrior, she will defeat this crab.

After the 6 treatments, there should be surgery, followed by herceptin to complete a full year of treatment. All this together will bring the bill higher…

We would like to get 50K$ to start. We don’t ask that all the fees be covered, but it is impossible to pay the total amount without loosing everything.

That’s why this Go Fund Me page has been created.

It can be 5$, 10$ or 500$, all your donations are welcome. Together, we can reach and even surpass the goal and help save her life.

Thanks for acting quickly… Faster than the spreading of the crabs in her body. And please, share this page in all your network and on social medias. Sophie would help if it was you… those who know her, know that…

>> UPDATE <<

As of August 16th, 11,093 PINK has been raised and $100 CAD has been sent. The Great Pink Buffalo will continue accepting donations for 3 more weeks and will send out more CAD at that time.

If that wasn’t enough more altruistic news is coming up: the Humanitarian Pool has begun side-staking to The Connected Foundation!

1_3huNY7fcd-HcglYyos8Pww

The Connected Foundation is a U.S. based 501C3 not-for-profit public charity whose mission is to connect and develop people and communities through innovative psychological services, financial and technical literacy programs and community partnerships with likeminded individuals and companies in an effort to level the playing field in order to change the world. – Connected Foundation

PINK’s very own superstar, Elypse, sat down to talk with Connected Foundation to ask how they and Pinkcoin can work together to better this world, and this is what they had to say:

1. What change will your project achieve with this partnership with Pink? -Elypse

The partnership between Connected Foundation and Pinkcoin will help fund the implementation of Connected Foundation’s FIN-TECH-LIT program. The FIN-TECH-LIT program teaches technical and financial literacy to the most in need kids. The comprehensive program will teach the basics of money, such as how to create a bank account, and the more complex concepts of investing, and using cryptocurrency. The FIN-TECH-LIT program is designed to teach these kids about money and technology so they can create financial freedom for themselves, their families and their communities. -Connected Foundation

2. Where will this project take place? -Elypse

The Connected Foundation’s FIN-TECH-LIT pilot program will begin this summer at the Cardozo Educational Campus, located in Washington, D.C., and will be expanding to other area schools in the fall. The FIN-TECH-LIT program will provide the necessary hardware to each kid, and give him or her the educational tools needed to take control of their financial future. The long-term goal for the Connected Foundation is to bring its FIN-TECH-LIT program to every community in the country. -Connected Foundation

Welcome to the Pinkcoin Family and we look forward to growing with your organization as it strives to help people and bring a positive impact to many lives. -Elypse

As of today, a game-changing haul of over 440,000 PINK, valued at upwards of $5,000, has been rewarded to a wallet owned and operated by Connected Foundation. In support of PINK’s latest long lasting partnership, the Humanitarian Pool will continue side-staking rewards to the Connected Foundation indefinitely.
