Darkcoin and StartCOIN added to Bittylicious
London, 6th August 2014. Bittylicious, the UK’s premier cryptocurrency vendor, now allows users to buy Darkcoins and StartCOINs quickly and easily.
Bittylicious has added Darkcoin and StartCOIN to its service after a long altcoin assessment process. Both of these coins can immediately be bought by users with UK bank accounts within minutes, and these will shortly be available via Visa and Mastercard credit and debit cards for European citizens.
Darkcoin is an altcoin which, unlike Bitcoin, has comprehensive, in built support for true anonymity. This is done by changes to the Darkcoin client and the infrastructure of the Darkcoin network. Users can choose whether transactions should be public or private with private transactions being automatically split into smaller denominations and pooled with the split-up payments of other users.
StartCOIN is designed as a crowdfunding coin. It is an ambitious project which is designed to be used to pledge support for crowdfunding projects on the StartJOIN site. Rewards are additionally distributed to projects and also to users that choose to support various projects.
In order to make room for these two coins, Bittylicious has removed three altcoins from its lineup. These are Auroracoin, Namecoin and Primecoin. Although Auroracoin unfortunately seems to have failed, Namecoin and Primecoin are still innovative projects, but the volumes and interest from buyers of these coins has made these unsustainable on the Bittylicious platform.
