Feathercoin is giving away $1000 worth of feathercoins as a thank you to its forum community of 1000.
The announcement from the Oxford-based, open-source currency, comes after a period of intense interest in Feathercoin and many other digital currencies.
"Feathercoin is making a big splash as it receives attention from hundreds of volunteers around the world who donate time and resources to the currency," said lead developer Peter Bushnell. "The official Feathercoin forum has exceeded 1,000 members and is preparing for an aggressive push into mainstream markets. In celebration the community is giving away over $1,000 in Feathercoins to say thank you for the active participation.
“Having an active community around Feathercoin was one of my primary goals. I did not expect the sudden adoption of Feathercoin which has brought us all together so rapidly. I believed when I launched the coin we would build up a community of supporters who would help further the project.”
The feathercoin community has created a range of content that includes tutorials, animations, jingles, technical guides, videos, and starter kits, Bushnell said. Developers have released updated versions of the client including additional features to enhance and differentiate it from Bitcoin,
Bushnell added: “The future is incredibly exciting. This coin gained more attention after launch than any other digital currency before it; many people sought to obtain Feathercoin and continue to do so, and as a result we have a very large base of users who are keen for an opportunity to spend their brand new hard earned currency. Now that Feathercoin can be traded on several markets its value is assured, and mass adoption can really blossom.”
