Hey all, I've been a casual follower of the Bitcoin space since around 2012 but really got into it around 2013 when Counterwallet was released, since then I've been very interested in Bitcoin 2.0 and have since acquired an EARLY token, and various orher things.

I am a hobbyist author, however, most of my writing is either lost to the ages or on NationStates (A nation building game) as Role Plays. So I thought I'd consider making more writing and publicizing it, but where, and how was the main question.

I mulled it over for a while, and had DeviantART earmarked for a while, but was wondering how to monetize it, while also fostering a thriving and happy community. I've always believed in Creative Commons and copyleft, as well as giving a share of my earnings back to the community, and wasn't sure how, until it hit me. Counterparty has dividend features, and can be used as a currency!

So I decided to issue 1 billion JaroknCoin (JRKC), and sign up for DeviantART under the name Jarokn. I have used this nickname since I was about 12 in various places, most since long forgotten. I know that not many others use it, although it is taken on Facebook and Twitter, but I can use something else on those, and I already do.

So, anyway, rather than attempting to explain it all here, I made two posts on DeviantART. One for my commission and request rules and prices, and one for JaroknCoin itself. The links are at the bottom of this post.

For those wanting a quick summary, basically, the tokens are used to buy commissions and receive a distributed 10% share of every commission purchase. Eventually, I want to have an access token here for a forum and society.

I hope this has interested you enough, I hope to do some giveaways soon, and I also have a 1,000 JaroknCoin bonus for those that watch my profile and comment their XCP address on the About JaroknCoin post. Also, if you mention Let's Talk Bitcoin, I'll give you an extra 1,000 JaroknCoins with your watchers bonus. :)

Anyway, I'm in the process of working on some writing examples, in the meantime, I have links.

    Another thing too, I'm not quite sure how to distribute most of it early, I sill hold all 1 billion, and I want to give the away, without compromising the integrity of the coin, or giving too many to early adopters. If you want to suggest increases to the bonus and/or give suggestions for distribution, go right ahead. :)

    I mean, the conversion is 100,000 JRKC per XCP, as it's base, maybe I could give out a massive amount for the first few and slowly lessen it for the next few. I'll need help as to how much and such, but I'm pretty excited.

    Sorry for the bump again, but I've figured out a way to get 250 million off my chest!

    I've started an Early Bird Giveaway at http://jarokn.deviantart.com/journal/JaroknCoin-Early-Bird-Giveaway-492314817

    Basically, the earlier you are to comment your address on a post, the more you get. This will devalue the JaroknCoin economy for a while, but I think it's the best way to distribute coins in a linear fashion while rewarding the early birds.

    As I'm giving away so much, I'm raising the base commission price to 1 million JRKC per XCP, although the higher teir discounts for JRKC still apply.

    Happy giveaway!

    Just a couple of questions

    Do you say how many in total you'll be issuing and would you trade in exchange for LTBCOIN ?

    It's locked at 1 billion JRKC. I am considering exchanging for LTBCOIN, but at the moment while this is in its teething stages, I feel it'd be simple to work with XCP and JRKC.

    Not to say you can't make me an offer, I would most likely make a negotiation and go with that route. I'd most likely have LTBCOIN as an exclusive for the LTB community however, as it doesn't see much use outside that.

    Yes, I thought you might like LTBCOIN to go towards a token society forum, let me think on it. perhaps later we can negotiate Good luck with the coin and thanks!

    No problem! I could certainly trade you some JRKC for LTBc for that purpose. Just let me do some calculations and I'll get back to you.

    Unfortunately, it's only on the Distributed Exchange of counterparty.

    You can commission short stories, poems and stuff from http://jarokn.deviantart.com for JRKC. I also plan to open a small store for my other projects, like my video games and music.

    I got bored waiting for comments, so I mocked up a litttle logo for JaroknCoin.

    I don't think you should design it yourself, perhaps you could put a bounty on it
