Privacy Policy for My New PiggyBank on the Google Play Store

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

Privacy Policy
This app merely acts as an interface to the Online PiggyBank which you can find at https://piggybank.piggy-coin.com.

No personally-identifying information is requested nor collected. The camera is used to scan QR codes as a fast way of inputting PiggyCoin addresses. The QR code is calculated on your device from the photo taken, so the photo is not sent anywhere.

coinwallet.co online wallet and Twitter tipbot

Posted by | News | No Comments

We now have a very nice staking online wallet/bank and Twitter tipbot from coinwallet.co! Here it is: https://www.coinwallet.co/en/currency/PIGGY

They also have a function where you can pay to e-mail addresses!

As coinwallet.co themselves tell users, please don’t keep all your PIGGY there if you have a lot. — Store the majority of your coins in your own Paper or Desktop PiggyBank, where you have direct control over the private keys.

Donation made to 88bikes

Posted by | News | No Comments

The amount raised by the PiggyCoin Foundation for the charity 88bikes has finally been donated to them! Thanks to PIGGY fan Solita in the US for helping out in getting to them. (It’s a US-headquartered charity.) And thanks of course to everyone who donated ;8]

It was 1,500,000 PIGGY that was raised. This was sold on Poloniex at 16 satoshis per PIGGY, netting a little over 0.24 BTC. This was recently converted to about 65 US dollars, and then Solita added a bit to take it up to 70 USD. :8]

Desktop PiggyBank v1.2.2.1 ‘Hey Mac-arena’ released

Posted by | News | No Comments

Desktop PiggyBank v1.2.2.1 Codename ‘Hey Mac-arena’ has been released. (Or rather, it was released about a week ago; sorry for being slow to post the news.)

The main change is user-interface fixes for MacOS. Also there are some minor technical updates such as a new checkpoint.

You can find the new PiggyBanks here.

v1.2.2.0 ‘Operation Sever-Chain’ users — upgrading is entirely optional.
v1.2.1.1 ‘Maintenance Release’ users — upgrading is recommended but not compulsory.
v1.2.0.0 Original ‘PiggyStakes’ and lower — upgrading is compulsory.

Swap period ending

Posted by | News | No Comments


Premine status: 4,688,000 (of 5,000,000) PIGGY still remaining.

MystPhysX requested an alternative reward instead of his bounty. This request was granted and so the premine remains unchanged.


The PiggyTeam is holding ~27,000,000 PIGGY in reserve for owners of PIG (Old PoW PiggyCoin) to claim. We call these the ‘unswapped coins’. If you are a PIG holder and wish to claim your share of these, sign a message in your PIG wallet (File / Sign Message…) using each address that contains any PIG. The message should say:

I, <social media name> on <bitcointalk, reddit, or whatever>, writing this on <date, 2015> wish to claim New PiggyCoin in exchange for these Old PiggyCoin. Please send the PIGGY to the address <Your New PiggyCoin address beginning with 'p'>. Thanks neurocis!

Send these messages and signatures (i.e. the text of each message AND each signature), carefully labelling the PIG address from which they came, to info@piggy-coin.com.

It has been over a year since New PiggyCoin’s beginning, so the swap opportunity has gone on for far longer than planned. While we are glad to have new PIGGY users from people who swap their PIG, going forwards we’d rather have neurocis concentrating on development.

For this and other reasons, the opportunity to swap coins will finish 3 weeks from now, on 12th July 2015.

Future use of the unclaimed unswapped coins

In related news, we PiggyTeam would like to claim those unswapped coins for future development, with the community’s permission.

I believe that most people want services around the coin — open-source web and mobile PiggyBanks, tipbots, teaching materials, tutorial videos, ongoing translations of everything… — so we need to pay people or set bounties to make those things happen. Perhaps when PiggyCoin’s bigger, those things would be more likely to happen without this kind of financial inducement, but for now, we need to bootstrap the coin by developing the services around it.

The PiggyCoin desktop piggybanks do have multisignature capabilities built-in, though they’re not user-friendly. So we could give multisig keys to some portion of these coins to community members, with the corresponding multisig keys in the PiggyTeam’s hands, so that we could not move them without community members’ permission. Then they should only release the next portion of the coins if the previous portion has been spent and accounted-for satisfactorily.

The alternative to this plan, is of course, to destroy the coins by sending them to an unrecoverable address (pTheresNoChanceWeHaveThePrivateKeyForThis…).

How can you, the PiggyCoin holder, indicate your preference? Well, you can tell us on Reddit or BitcoinTalk, or by PM, by e-mail, whatever. It doesn’t seem practical to vote on this using wallet signatures as some people have their piggycoins in multiple addresses, but you can do that if you want — Sign a message telling us your preference. (Of course, the views of big holders of PiggyCoin should have more weight, especially as it’s not practical to sell all those coins right now.)

A note about our exchanges

Posted by | News | No Comments

PiggyCoin is listed at Poloniex and Cryptopia.  At these places, you can buy PiggyCoin with Bitcoin.

Poloniex have recently introduced a policy where they need to know your name and country, for you to make any withdrawals, up to USD 2000 per day.  There is not yet any requirement to upload scans of your ID cards.

PiggyCoin is also traded at Cryptopia.  They are running a promotion where there are no trade fees for the month of June.  There are some ‘adult’ coins listed there, and some NSFW gifs in the pop-out chatbox, so be aware if browsing with youngsters!
