Maricoin dresses long this New Year’s Eve. The first LGTB + cryptocurrency starts its deployment with a pilot project that, due to restrictions due to the emergence of infections by omicron, finally It will be limited to the Madrid neighborhood of Chueca. Other iconic centers of the community, such as Barcelona, Ibiza and Maspalomas (Gran Canaria), have to wait.
The cancellation of the traditional macro parties To welcome the New Year, he has forced maricoin promoters to redesign their premiere. Finally, the pilot project to assess the usefulness of the cryptocurrency and introduce the latest improvements before its official launch to the general public. It will be limited to 100 users and a dozen businesses of Chueca.
Although the businessmen behind the parties canceled by the omicron advance continue to support the project and promise to accept maricoins as soon as they can recover their activity, this New Year’s Eve they will not be part of this essay. A proof that It will last, at least, until the day of Kings and that seeks to achieve usability improvements.
Among the businesses that will finally accept maricoins from tonight are the Café de la Luz, Cutxi bar, discos, bars, restaurants and hotels of Chueca. In addition, of course, hairdressers of the chain Juan por Dios, whose founder Juan Belmonte is the main creator of this cryptocurrency for the LGTB community.
The CEO of the project, Paco Alvarez, explains to EL ESPAÑOL-Invertia that the objective is “to reach 1,000 transactions so that the system can be tested in a diverse and transgenerational audience“For this, they will equip a hundred initial users of digital wallets with 500 maricoins, equivalent to 10 euros depending on the starting value that has been established for the cryptocurrency: $ 0.025.
“Now, more than bugs technological by barrage of concurrent transactions what would be in the macro parties, what we will be able to see is the real usability of the maricoins, which is much better, “explains Álvarez. Of course, without renouncing that once the large concentrations of the group return, tests can be carried out along these lines.
Despite this script change regarding the premiere, the roadmap established for the maricoin remains unchanged. So much so that through the booking form for these tokens they have already registered until today more than 8,600 applications for a combined balance of 4.71 million euros. The goal is in the coming weeks the numbers are around 10,000 maricoiners and exceed 5 million euros.

The rest, until the list closes at 10,000 applications, will receive a bonus of 3 to 2 maricoins.
The creators of this new cryptocurrency, which replicas begin to appear with less defined projects such as Chuecoin, defend its usefulness to strengthen the LGTB community around the world since 20% of maricoins will be in the hands of the associations of the group that want to join the project, which may get interest through staking, which consists of keeping cryptos in your portfolio without spending them or converting them to another currency.
