Pakcoin Crypto Currency Mania Hits Pakistan

Although it's still early days for Pakistan to fully embrace crypto currency, one major player has recently come to light as Pakistani merchants begin accepting Pakcoin as a form of payment.

Rawalpindi, Pakistan - October 13, 2017 /PressCable/ —

Only recently have crypto currencies such as Bitcoin become more popular in Pakistan, following a period of uncertainty and controversy about its true potential as a secure currency. Digital currency popularity has made a sharp increase this year, with investors flocking with confidence to speculate on this relatively volatile currency. Technology enthusiasts have also begun importing specialized hardware to mine Bitcoins, a process by which transactions can be verified and added to the block chain, which is how new bitcoins are released.

With so much being said about crypto currencies internationally, Pakistan is now also catching on to this new technology. One of the very few Pakistani ventures in crypto currency that have come to light is Pakcoin, a digital currency with a very special focus on Pakistani consumers and businesses. Pakcoin was launched nearly 2 years ago, but it didn’t really come to public attention until a hospital in Pakistan began accepting it as an accepted form of payment.

Infact, the Abid hospital was the first private hospital to accept crypto currency earlier this year throughout the whole of Asia. Following its initial success, other commercial retailers have announced the introduction of Pakcoin as a form of payment, and is currently being used by customers to pay for their purchases. Mr. Abu Shaheer, the founder of Pakcoin, recently commented in an interview that he had been working on a number of computer projects for over 15 years, while describing himself as a computer geek. He added: “Crypto currencies have been around for a number of years, though I only truly realized their true potential back in 2013.”

The man behind Pakistan´s leading crypto currency stated that the inspiration behind Pakcoin came from Auroracoin, an Icelandic based digital currency, which he came across in 2014. He added: “With Pakistan being the fourth largest global freelancer market, I knew our country would soon need its own digital currency, so I proceeded to put my Pakcoin project into action.”

According to Pakcoin’s founder, the crypto currency is based on Litecoin, described as a peer-to-peer digital currency enabling instant, low cost payments to anybody in the world. He added: “Just like Litecoin, Pakcoin is an open source worldwide payment network, and completely decentralized from any central authority. The digital network is completely secured by mathematics and empowers people to have complete control over their own finances.” He also said that their main focus today was to make the crypto currency a lot more adaptable in a real life scenario, similar to POS payments and merchant apps.

Mr. Shaheer also mentioned that they planned to make Pakcoin an acceptable form of payment online and in local stores all over Pakistan, but that it would take some time to put into action. He added: “We plan on educating a large segment of the Pakistani population as well as government officials who are all still unaware about the benefits of crypto currencies. Despite the work and effort needed to make Pakcoin a household name, I am very hopeful about the future of Pakcoin as Pakistan´s leading crypto currency.”

In order to raise awareness about the Pakcoin crypto in Pakistan, 50 PAK are available for free to the first 150,000 Pakistanis who claim them. More Pakistan crypto currency information and the latest news about Pakcoin can be found on their official website, www.pakcoin.io

BERLIN — Bayern Munich took advantage of Borussia Dortmund's faltering campaign to move level on points with the Bundesliga leader on Saturday.

Dortmund still leads on goal difference after nine rounds but the pressure is building after its fourth game without a win from five matches across all competitions. Nuri Sahin scored inside the first 20 minutes and Maximilian Philipp put Dortmund in a comfortable position on a counterattack before the hour mark. It...

Chen holds on to win Rostelecom gold

Oct 21, 2017

MOSCOW — Nathan Chen's technique trumped Yuzuru Hanyu's superiority in program components to win the men's event at the Rostelecom Cup, the first leg of this year's six Grand Prix figure skating competitions. Chen, the US national champion, reeled off four quads including a spectacular opening quad Lutz-triple toe opening combination and a quad-double-double cascade in the second half of the free skate Saturday. Hanyu did three quads, but won the free skate segment with a six-point advantage on components. However, Chen was far ahead after Friday's short program and the 2014 Olympic gold medalist's win in the free skate...

Oct 21, 2017

NEW ORLEANS — As quickly as Golden State's Klay Thompson pulled up for his seventh 3-pointer of the night, the Pelicans' packed, home-opening crowd stopped chanting, "Defense," and started looking for the nearest exits. Thompson scored 31 points, Stephen Curry added 28 and the Golden State Warriors easily erased a 15-point first-half deficit en route to a 128-120 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday night. "I felt like I was in the zone," Thompson said. "If I went out there and shot some more jumpers, I'd probably make some more. I was just getting great looks tonight." Kevin...

Puerto Rican MLB players bond over hurricane _ and WhatsApp

Oct 21, 2017

NEW YORK — When the Houston Astros' owner offered Carlos Beltran charter aircrafts to send relief aid to Puerto Rico and evacuate cancer patients from the island after Hurricane Maria, the Puerto Rican slugger quickly thought about "the chat group." He wanted to send word to other Puerto Rican teammates and coaches with the Astros, as well as friends from other teams, that one of the airplanes was available to pick up family members who couldn't return to the mainland because of the lack of commercial flights. The "chat" Beltran was referring to was the WhatsApp group that All-Star catcher...
