Unscheduled power outage.
posted 24/12/2019 12:13:58 by phoenixx

It appears there was a sneaky unscheduled power outage recently - which wouldnt have been an issue - but it occured in the wee hours of the night so nobody noticed until today. As a result the pool may have been offline for a day or so.

IP Changed.

To Minimise mining downtime, make sure you are using mars.our-game.net   for your miners host address, as our IP was changed last friday and would have interrupted any miners.

Due to an issue with the contact form on this pool not working - I have created a forum here:

If you have any issues or simply questions.  Post on there, and I should eventually get to it.


Marscoin Delisted from Polonex
posted 05/06/2016 21:48:23 by phoenixx

Since Marscoin is not particularly active at the moment, (most Mars missions are not scheduled until 2017 to 2020) and there is not a lot of urgency in its trading, Poloniex has removed the marscoin market.  They have stated that once it becomes popular again, we are welcome to request that they list it again.

Geezup was the staff member who proposed its removal. Thanks for your patience Poloniex.

Why use Marscoin?

Is this coin a scam?
No they are registered under corporate law in Florida as a not-for-profit. It would be a criminal code violation to do anything illegal.

A summary of their corporate record is available here:

  • http://www.corporationwiki.com/p/2fcw4i/the-marscoin-foundation-inc

  • http://www.bizapedia.com/fl/THE-MARSCOIN-FOUNDATION-INC.html

 Marscoin's purpose is to facilitate a functional economic and research credit system for the coming Mars colony and research missions. Of which there are several!
For example, to allow universities to lease rovers on Mars, to reward research performed on Mars, and to allow Mars Colonists to sell/purchase/trade items on Earth.


Any sort of legitimate space type article to give it credibility?
Heaps actually, eg. http://www.spacebulletin.co.uk/2014/08/marscoin-help-finance-mars-one-for-free.html

It has also been mentioned in interviews of Mars One finalists.

Working Faucet?
Links removed due to my suspicion they are fake faucets.
