The latest innovation in Green Stable Coin Technology, producing the perfect ecosystem for secure, transparent, and scalable cryptocurrency use.Read our short paper
Bitcoin Air prides itself on it’s community driven growth and communication. We begin by building our businesses culture around Security, Transparency, and Scalability, and proceed to scale up our goals to the communities needs and requests. Bitcoin Air focuses on being the first suitable alternative to Bitcoin, by providing both an environmentally friendly consensus method, and backing our stable side-chain with Carbon Credits to aid in producing Green Initiatives through day to day business and consumer interaction.
Bitcoin Air seeks to provide a global solution to many of the key issues faced with traditional emissions, banking and financial systems. By combining the feature rich and populated base of Bitcoin, with the environmental and user-friendly consensus method of Peercoin, we produce the perfect dual-chain Blockchain that has ability to maintain both stable and volatile value. Bitcoin Air goes one step further to implement Atomic Swap to remove the need for exchanges and centralized trade forces. Bitcoin Air focuses on bringing real-world change to the greater population by providing the first Carbon Credit Asset Backed currency that will in the end produce clean air initiatives and aid in reducing the Human Carbon Footprint by carefully regulating and producing new Emission Reducing Programs and Technologies.
The power of the Blockchain is endless and Bitcoin Air plans to implement this scalability to our payment solutions. We will make things like Segregated Witness, Lightning Network, and Atomic Swap primary features to our Blockchain to ensure that scalability and security are not something we will lack. Through the use of our dual-chain blockchain, Bitcoin Air produces the first step towards creating a merchant and consumer friendly financial system that can not only promote positive change financially, but also environmentally by producing Swap and Spend fees that go directly to creating clean air initiative programs and technologies that reduce the Human Carbon Footprint, and in the long run, reduce the cost of manufacturing and producing goods!
By combining both the feature-rich, and populated base of Bitcoin with the Hybrid PoS/PoW source of Peercoin, along with a dual-chain Blockchain developed with Carbon Credit Asset Backing. Bitcoin Air will offer not only the most secure value preserving method for cryptocurrency, but also the most innovative and useful currency of its time through the implementation of Segregated Witness, Atomic Swap, Lightning Network, and Hybrid Dynamic Proof of Stake/Proof of Work Consensus.
Using the Bitcoin Air Applications will be a breeze. We are dedicated to creating a simple, jet-stream merchant and consumer payments system for the everyday individual. This means that anybody can access and store their funds securely using any available application. Send, Spend, Withdraw, Deposit, or Store your funds all from the comfort of your easy to use mobile application.
Bitcoin Air implements Hybrid Dynamic Proof of Stake/Proof of Work consensus to stop the potential replay attacks, double spending, and 51% attacks that could happen within the blockchain, while maintaining user privacy and security, Bitcoin Air maintains the side chain reserve system through trust-less consensus and irreversible mint/burn protocols that ensure no fowl play can take place.
Bitcoin Air has one goal to unify the world through safe, secure, and transparent payments. Decentralizing the overall power of value and returning it to the people through the Blockchain.
Bitcoin Air’s mission is to design and produce the first viable attempt at tackling the key issues associated with cryptocurrency, small business and environmental risks at hand today. By producing the first Carbon Credit Asset-Backed Dual-Chain Blockchain, Bitcoin Air leads the way in pioneering the adoptability, scalability, and overall benefits of using the Blockchain. Combining this technology with Green Initiatives and a viable means of Asset-Backing, Bitcoin Air creates the first Living Ecosystem dedicated to reducing the Human Footprint, lowering the cost of living, and increasing the overall quality of life.
Bitcoin Air values transparency, security, integrity, and power to the people. We feel any and all decisions guiding a communities path should be up to the people themselves. The only thing we should ever ensure is the security and well-being of our community. This in turn brings us to our value of integrity. Ensuring that we are transparent with you all and maintain the same truths to ourselves as we do you our people. Bitcoin Air also thrives on the idea that the world can pursue a clean means of growth without destroying the lives of others and the ground under our feet. We at Bitcoin Air strive to produce a truly positive force in Crypto Space that can change things for the good of our future generations.
What are the specifications of the upcoming fork?
Bitcoin Air will be airdropping coins to everyone who holds Bitcoin and Peercoin during the time of the snapshot. The specifications to follow are below:
What is Bitcoin Air?
Bitcoin Air is a bilateral dual-chain blockchain developed to deliver a means of indirect carbon emission reductions through decentralized, trust-less merchant/consumer interactions. Bitcoin Air plans to reduce carbon emissions through the development of a dual chain volatile/stable coin pair dedicated to creating the most versatile and scalable solution for merchant and consumer use. Merchants will be able to transact in cryptocurrency without the worry of profit loss due to fraud or technical issues within their conventional credit card processing equipment. Consumers will be able to transact in a multitude of ways including in person, over the web, or via AirCash Physical Currency!
How does an airdrop/fork work?
An airdrop is a fairly simple process where the development team handles most of the difficult tasks and makes it as easy as “sweeping” your private key when the wallet is released. The process begins by you sending out all of your balance in the private key you held through the snapshot, to a safe and separate wallet address. You will then continue to take the empty private key address, and import it into the Bitcoin Air Wallet. This will conduct a sweep for the correct balance ratio at the time of the snapshot, and it will add it to your balance immediately!
What coins will you be forking?
Bitcoin Air is a bilateral merge fork between Bitcoin ($BTC) and Peercoin ($PPC). We are currently discussing if we would like to include Bitcoin Cash into the Airdrop as well!
Where do I need to store my coins before the snapshot?
Currently, we are in discussion with several exchanges in regards to them supporting our upcoming airdrop. For now, please just ensure that you hold all Peercoin or Bitcoin OFF-EXCHANGE to ensure that you receive our airdrop if exchanges do not support it! (IMPORTANT: If an exchange decides not to support the airdrop, the holders on that exchange will NEVER receive Bitcoin Air!)
Are you associated with Peercoin?
We are in no way associated with the Peercoin Foundation, Peercoin Development Team, or Peercoin Community Team. We are our own separately funded and developed team that is pursuing completely separate use cases.
Which coin will be available on exchanges? USDAP or XAP?
There are 3 ways you can get USDAP: 1. Be a merchant that accepts Bitcoin Air via payment protocol, and it will automatically be converted into USDAP when a payment is accepted to avoid volatility. 2. Burn your Bitcoin Air and mint USDAP within the wallet, which you can then burn back and mint into Bitcoin Air. You can also convert it into AirCash. 3. Receive AirCash ($USDAP) in person from another person and sweep it into your wallet. USDAP will not be sendable to each person. It will only be able to be minted/burned and then able to be exchanged via a paper fiat code called AirCash that can be swept into your wallet balance. It will not be available for purchase on exchanges
When is the fork date?
The official snapshot date will take place on Thanksgiving Day, November 22nd, 2018.
Who is creating this fork?
The Bitcoin Air team is a wide spread culturally diverse development team dedicated to providing a ground breaking product through Non-ICO, Non-VC funding directly from private partners all who are dedicated to the community and people alike. The team section can be found in our navigation and will highlight the teams placements and qualifications alike!
