$PAC is the third-generation cryptocurrency that is poised to change the way we interact online. Deriving from “People’s Alternative Choice,” $PAC is a rising phoenix – a blockchain-powered coin that has been developed on the ashes of an outdated analog referred to as PACcoin.
PACcoin was initially launched in 2014 with the goal to unite developers, marketers, and all crypto enthusiasts in a single network. However, given that the cryptocurrency project had not been updated for years, the coin’s rate fell and interest in the project faded.
In August 2017, a new community-driven management team started the meticulous task of rebranding and re-launching the cryptocurrency. This is how the current third-generation digital coin was born. $PAC is based on DASH code, suggesting that it provides more advanced anonymity features when compared to Bitcoin. In November 2017, the code was entirely upgraded, and the project had already had a new webpage and coin wallet. The project was officially re-launched on February 1, and now the team has many challenges ahead.
$PAC’s primary goal is to turn into the most efficient and user-friendly digital currency out there. It plans to cover the majority of the countries across the globe. The digital currency leverages blockchain technology and relies on the Proof-of-Service (POS) consensus algorithm to maintain the network. The latter revolves around masternodes and represents an excellent opportunity for users to generate decent profits.
When looking into $PAC’s performance in comparison with other digital currencies, we can see that the coin has great potential, as it beats the largest cryptocurrency by market cap in terms of features.
$PAC Development Updates
Since the moment of the official launch in February, the team behind $PAC has released a wide range of technology and development updates, to make the project feasible during any market conditions. For example, the $PAC woocommerce plugin was introduced to allow the coin’s compatibility with any online retailers that rely on WordPress sites. Currently, the team is working on other payment gateways as well.
The team has already released the electrum-lite wallet for all MAC, Windows, and Linux users. The wallet versions for Android and iOS have also been released a few days ago after the team has addressed the final bug fixes. There is also a “PAC vault” hardware wallet, which is currently under development. The latter will be a much safer method to hold the new $PAC coins. The available wallet versions can be downloaded on the coin’s website.
$PAC’s Projects and Initiatives
Despite being at its very nascent stage, the newly rebranded project has been already explored for several use cases and is expected to be used in many projects to be deployed soon.
To consolidate its position in the crypto community, members of the PAC team attended the London cryptocurrency show in April, discussing the project and the masternode opportunities.
$PAC is all about social responsibility and active involvement. The crypto project revolves around the so-called four C’s, which refer to the alternative choice, content, community, and charity.
At the moment, the $PAC team and community are keen to focus on the hyperinflation problems of Venezuela’s national currency Bolivar and to help the economic rehabilitation of Cucuta, Colombia.
Currently, Venezuela’s government increases the minimum wage three to four times a year to keep up with the hyperinflation craze. President Nicolas Maduro even launched a national cryptocurrency called El Petro to fight the inflation and monetize the natural reserves of the country. In these conditions, $PAC ecosystem would be like fresh air, as it can act as a great economic rehabilitator with its in-built funding pool for Social Programs. $Pac’s funding pool is perhaps the largest one, as 20% of all newly mined tokens are reaching the pool to be used for marketing, operations, and charity purposes. Besides, the fact that only about 3% of $PAC coins have been mined until today makes the ecosystem relevant in the long-term perspective.
According to $PAC’s plans in Latin America, 300,000 citizens in the city of Cucuta should receive wages in $PAC for about two weeks, which would keep them protected against the never-ending inflation and would help the city rehabilitate its economy. $PAC is much more stable given that it is backed by the value of USD/EUR pair. The team also wants to educate the Colombian population on the use of cryptocurrency and teach English lesson in the country’s schools.
To achieve its goals especially in Venezuela, the $PAC team plans to collaborate with cryptocurrency-oriented project Cashaa. The two entities plan to develop a donation system leveraging $PAC. The system will help people around the world donate their fiat money with zero transaction fees.
However, $PAC is not focusing only on Latin American countries. The project’s charitable initiatives are widespread around the world. Today, the team is helping to improve the quality of life of the people in Detroit by partnering with Reclaim Shoppe. Under the plan, derelict buildings are demolished, and the reclaimed materials are used to develop resell-able products, such as furniture units, pool tables, and even musical instruments.
$PAC is an ecosystem that focuses on real-life services and wants to transform the way we interact. The team’s active involvement in several projects proves the cryptocurrency’s utility and game-changing potential.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
