Bitcoin, IrishCoin, Brexit

Bitcoin, IrishCoin, Brexit

By | Uncategorized

The bitcoin bounce is in with current speculation at a short term high of $14,000. The longterm speculation from well-known btc pundits like Tone Vays and Richard Heart have a price range of 45 to 100K in about one to two years. Alts have been suffering massively with all the focus on btc but we in IrishCoin believe alts will recover in increments with btc prices in excess of 15K. Leading the way will be litecoin and dogecoin both Scrypt coins like IrishCoin. In the short term, we face some cliff edge economic issues in Ireland with brexit which now seems to have legs with the new UK administration. A cliff-edge Brexit regardless of its outcome will have an immediate impact on Irish business and by default hedging of savings into Gold, btc and other instruments. Investors in the crypto markets could use IRL at low prices to ride any momentum which may occur before October 31st.  Of course, all this is purely speculative but IRL is best-suited towards amateur investors looking for low price access to the market where btc is prohibitively expensive in a volatile Brexit situation. Any uptick in prices would be a boon for IRL we could then reinvest in the network. Here’s hoping!

Talk soon, Daithi, IRL team.


Symantec update

November update.

By | Uncategorized

The crypto scene has been going through one of many corrections in the past few weeks and for those of us who have been involved since the early days, this correction is one of many to come.  Regardless, the use and potential use of crypto now and in the future will drive prices and development to new levels not just on price, but in parts of our lives we could never imagine. IrishCoin was conceived as a go-to token for the Irish tourism industry and although we had some successful pilot programs and now some real-time adoption, crypto use to the general public is a harder nut to crack. The IrishCoin community consisting of miners, buyers, sellers (yes we need them too :D) and developers have kept the idea of an Irish crypto token alive since 2014. With an Irish diaspora worldwide of over 80 million, IRL has some tremendous potential going forward. The fact IrishCoin has survived through thick and thin since it’s 2014 inception is a legacy which drives both speculators and enthusiasts alike. As we go through this current correction there is now more potential for adoption on multiplatform mobile wallets like coinomi etc as the cost of entry will have significantly dropped. This is now our current plan. QT updates will follow also.

On another note: Our advert campaign on Irish radio stations (link here) is reaching in excess of 24,000 listeners per day. The Irish community at home and abroad hears our advert in Irish shops, pubs, and restaurants across the globe.

IrishCoin Internet Radio Advert Campaign begins again.

By | Uncategorized

We’ve always found internet radio advertising to be a great way to promote IRL to people who are not too informed on the crypto scene. Irish media like liveIreland, IrishAmericanNews, and IrishPub Radio fit the bill when it comes to promoting Irishcoin to the Irish diaspora at home and abroad.  From this weekend our partners at liveIreland Radio starts our pre-Christmas campaign followed by IMR radio and some Irish blog promotions as well. (more on this later) Along with our cointopay POS rollout, we hope to inform Irish audiences of the potential discounts and purchases available from IRL outlets.

Irish Cryptocurrency giveaway for St Patricks Day

By | Uncategorized
IrishCoin and the all-new CryptoCafe on Aungier Street in Dublin will be giving away €5 worth of IrishCoin (IRL) to the first 20 customers for every purchase of coffee in store. Just call in and ask for your IRL on the day! Slainte!
Nash Basel proprieter of the CryptoCafe in Dublin


The IrishCoin team will be rolling out it’s updated digital wallets in April so you can buy Coffee in IRL at the CryptoCafe and other outlets in Dublin.
CryptoCafe was opened in Dublin by Crypto investor and enthusiast Nash Basel as a new way of selling coffee via digital currencies.  The concept has taken off especially from a marketing perspective and the store emulates this with screens showing the latest crypto prices via coinmarketcap. The gourmet coffee and in-house bakes are exceptionally and good and seem to be giving Starbucks across the road a run for their money, or crypto as the case may be.
IrishCoin a well-established cryptocurrency since 2014 has been trading on the crest of the recent crypto boom and subsequent correction for over 4 years. As recently as 14 January 2018, the coin’s value grew by over 3,000% in an overnight trading with 2 million dollars worth of coins traded in 24 hours.  Its popularity has partly come from the exponential demand for cryptocurrencies and partly from its solid foundation when compared to most other coins that are just out to make money for their developers. This is also expected to boost the coin’s reception in the Irish tourism industry especially considering that it is offering incentives such as discounts for users. For more information visit the IrishCoin website (Update coming on the 17th) twitter:
CryptoCafe is located on Dublin’s Aungier Street straight across from the historical Whitefriars St Church.
