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.

PiggyCoin added to POSWallet

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

PiggyCoin was added to the online staking wallet POSWallet.com! You can upload your PIGGYs and other proof-of-stake coins there and leave them working to make interest for you while you enjoy an iced truffle drink.

They also have a faucet (= free coins) and block explorer. Check them out!

Like an exchange, be careful about leaving many PIGGY there for a long period of time. The PIGGYs in your own PiggyBank are the only ones that you truly control.

Cointopay payment processor

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

PiggyCoin has been added to the payment processor Cointopay! This will make it easier for shopping websites to accept PIGGY ;8]

If you already have an account on Cointopay, you should enable PIGGY in the Account section (wallet preferences) to see PiggyCoin in more places of the site.

And thanks to Cointopay, you can now use your PiggyCoins to buy products such as hot sauces on Pexpeppers.com!

General News Update: 1st-4th Jan 2015

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

Staking fix

Good news! We have identified the specific source of the bug that led to a lower-than-expected interest rate, and so we are preparing for a hard fork to fix it.

It seems few people want the interest rate to be 15%, so we’ll be ‘fixing’ it to a lower amount. Have your say on what you think the interest rate should be by voting here if you can: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=715699.0, or by just replying to this post. Also let us know if there’s anything else about the staking you think should be changed.


Paper wallets

As previously mentioned, a paper wallet generator is available here: https://www.piggy-coin.com/PiggyPaperWallet/

It’s useful for gifting or storing PiggyCoins. Notice that there are two PiggyCoin designs available.

It takes a long time to import private keys with the ‘newpiggycoin v1.0.0.0’ wallet, so you might want to upgrade to a newer wallet in that case.


Android wallet

The external dev who did the web wallet is the same one who will do the Android wallet. He’s been busy with paid work though, but will get round to doing our Android wallet pro-bono eventually.

There should be no changes required to the web or Android wallets for the hard fork, as these are not staking wallets.


Piggy power

LitePaid.com, a cryptocurrency payment processor, has indicated to us that they are open to the possibility of accepting PiggyCoin. This would allow online shops to accept PiggyCoin using an automated system. Please Tweet at them to let them know you want this! https://twitter.com/litepaid

We already have a retailer lined up who will accept PiggyCoins if we get on LitePaid!


Still seeking workers

It seems likely that the price will be higher following a successful hard fork (and there’s no real reason it wouldn’t be successful). We have a professional dev already, neurocis, but he would like to be more devoted to his EasySend-on-the-Blockchain project.

The price is still low, so we think this would still be a great time for another dev to buy in, to have skin in the game to make it worth his while to work on the project. Core devvery would be great — We’d like to have a Gitian compilation system — or someone who would make a Reddit tipbot. But really, any help would be good.


The PiggyCoin Foundation

The price is still too low to be worth converting the PiggyCoins to Bitcoins right now. They will eventually be converted and donated to 88bikes.



The PiggyFacts faucet has run low on PiggyCoins. If you would like to donate, there’s information on how to do here: http://piggyfacts.com/donate.php



All 1% (5 million PiggyCoins) of the pre-mine is still available, and in the possession of the PiggyTeam. We’re hesitant to use it on anything at the moment as the price is so low.

Happy New Year,
The PiggyTeam
