I had the chance to conduct a small written interview with Patrick Nosker, one of the three VeriCoin developers. All questions below were asked by the VeriCoin community.
Patrick, can you provide us and the community with more information about VeriBank and how the development is going so far?
PN – Unfortunately VeriBank is not our project so we cannot comment on it.
Will there be an updated Developer Road Map in the near future? Or do you have something entirely different in mind to keep us updates in regards to the future of VeriCoin?
PN – We are working on a new decentralized anon system, a new wallet UI, and working to gain real-world usage of VRC. There is no concrete road map.
How is the marketing & work undertaken for marketing adoption by vendors directly (so not through VeriBit) going? Are you seeing much resistance, or are the merchants fairly cooperative?
PN – We’re working on a project called “VeriLeader” which is a group of regional team leaders to help us promote VeriCoin.
Besides VeriBit, are any other unique implementations or integrations with (existing) payment systems planned?
PN – Unfortunately we can’t comment on this right now beyond “yes.”
Recently, we saw a new project being launched, called Vericoin Radio. Is it a success so far, or do you think it’s too early to tell?
PN – I really like listening to it, but we don’t have stats/known what’s going on behind the scenes.
How was the North American Bitcoin Conference for you guys? Did you meet a lot of VeriCoin enthusiasts? Tell us a bit more about your experience.
PN – It was great. Yes, we met many fans. We met with some incubator project teams as well as groups interested in accepting VeriCoin and investors.
One of the main worries in the VeriCoin community at the moment is “Why coin value go down? Why no going up?” Do you have any explanation for this phenomenon?
PN – Unregulated markets like crypto allow for insane gains/losses in short time. That’s just the way crypto is. We can only hope that the investors that see the real potential in VeriCoin are able to get in.
Where is Joel?
PN – That question is only for him to comment on.
We at CryptoArticles.com (Jean-Pierre Buntinx & Serge Schouterden) would like to thank Patrick Nosker for taking the time to conduct this written interview with us.
