We receive questions via the ‘Contact Us’ form from time to time, but this site has gone largely unmaintained following the FlapX swap. We (jade13cat and hanzou) aren’t heavily involved in these coins at this time, but will try to do a better job of avoiding stale links on this site going forward.
As always, continue to ask questions on Discord, the ##flappycoin IRC channel or FlappyCoin Telegram
What Is FlappyCoin?
Flappycoin is peer-to-peer, decentralized cryptocurrency modeled after the extensively popular mobile phone game, “Flappy Bird.” Our currency has been resurrected by a group of dedicated developers, with full intent to restore Flappycoin to its former glory. Join the Flappycoin movement by becoming apart of our Community.
Your Second Chance To Board The Rocket!
Why Flappy Bird?
This lovable creature first stole our hearts when it hit the global app stores. Millions flocked to the platform, intent upon tapping endlessly; avoiding various pipes and earning highly respected scores. Even years after the game had been pulled, Flappy Bird remained an important reminder of how a simple idea can foster an ever-growing global community.
What is Proof-of-Work?
Flappycoin sprung onto the crypto scene in 2014 as one of the popular proof-of-work (PoW) coins mined using the Scrypt algorithm. This allowed gamers to put their GPUs to good use and mine coins, securing our network with fast transactions at a block time of one minute. Check out our pool mining page and relive that experience. Flappycoin is tailored to use the Kimoto Gravity Well (KGW) difficulty-retargeting algorithm originally invented for Megacoin.
What about Proof-of-Stake?
We’re seeing tremendous interest from the community in proof-of-stake (PoS). For the future we’re considering PoS that rewards Flappycoin owners for actively participating in securing our blockchain network. Your wallet would have to remain open allowing it to communicate with others’, continuously confirming authenticity of all transactions on the network. Read more about the technicalities here. Initial directions has have suggested instituting a swap to an entirely new PoS-based Flappycoin, although other options are on the table too. Either way, now is the time to get your wallets full of the PoW Flappycoin and involve yourself with the community!
