After tough enough was closed system Liberty Reserve, some programmers and webmasters had the idea to create their most secure and anonymous payment system. Among these people was our spokesman Andrei today (under the pseudonym Pirat). His system called PiratCoin, of which the creator can tell us a lot of interesting things.
Editorial: Welcome! We sincerely very pleased that you have agreed to answer all the questions, because our readers will be very interested to learn more about your system. We know that you are the founder and leader of the project. Tell our readers how it all began? How did the idea to create a system, which were the prerequisites?
Pirat: Hello! The idea of the project originated immediately after the death of "Liberty Reserve", in May 2013, after the loss of finance, and my comrades. Then it was decided to personally monitor the finances by opening its currency! Above the title and appearance have conducted a number of nights, and eventually the project was born.
Editorial: It's not the first time I hear that closing Liberty Reserve prompts to create a new system. Liberty officially closed because of money laundering that you think about this?
Pirat: Reading materials of the case, I discovered a few things. Partner Arthur in 2009 said that in "Liberty" are only scammers and other gray mass, what Arthur himself said: "Let him alone Bin Laden will change!". It was one of the causes of ill-closing. Speaking honestly, I understand that "Liberty Reserve" 50 percent consisted of money laundering, but there is another side of the coin! At the same time, "Liberty" is always responsible for his words, and was not indiscriminate blocking of accounts, which allow themselves to PerfectMoney!
Editorial: By the way, I remember that one of the systems, which appeared immediately after the closing of Liberty, was a system MeraPay.
Pirat: I would add that there were many platezhek, one of them - AsianReserve. And besides, many more closed.
Editorial: Anonymity - your horse. But at the same time, now with the anonymity and freedom associated Bitcoin. What is your opinion about what you think and kriptovalyute general about this philosophy, the idea of?
Pirat: The idea is ingenious. I will say that Bitcoin was launched together with the "Perfect Money", and it is clear that both systems have achieved success! The idea of Bitcoin so ingenious that only heavy clip from the authorities all over the world dropped to the lowest rate. Without sanctions Bitcoin price would be equal to 10 thousand dollars for 1 BTC.
Editorial: Do you think that the authorities are afraid of imposing sanctions?
Pirat: Authorities fear, do not need any more swift translations. But this is just one of the reasons. After all, the authorities are afraid not so much Bitcoins as technology, in which he carries himself - kriptovalyuty technology. Detsenentralizatsiya - the payments of the new generation. If you give them the strength and the will, they can capture the hearts of the people due to the openness and transparency.
Editorial: Is there a future kriptovalyut, or perhaps in the future they will have a different shape?
Pirat: In business, as in war, you can lose at the last moment! My predictions about the Bitcoin has not come true, I'm not anticipating such attacks authorities, who are attracted to the fact that the price slipped! Also we got a vulnerability in Bitcoins same "monster» - Mt. Gox - reported that they received on February 10-11 uncommitted transactions and not withdrawn any time Bitcoins! I think it will go a serious struggle for countering the use of monetary aggregates in the world, not just in specific countries! We have a future kriptovalyut and electronic wallets too. Will they be banned as marijuana, with their active circulation, or become legal as gold, - I can not judge, but clearly the market waiting for the change, but in what direction - time will tell.
Editorial: Let's go back to your system. In any payment system security - this is one of the most important factors. Is it possible in your case to say that complete anonymity synonymous with security?
Pirat: Anonymity really our rolls, namely: 1) we do not store IP-addresses, 2) no one, respectively, do not hand over the report, 3) system was created by people for people, and if the data received during registration, you were not lost or stolen, access to your funds is not possible! Of course, where the pros and cons there. Password recovery in case of loss is only available on request to the administrator!
Editorial: Yes, it's very interesting. It's nice that the user need not worry about their funds. Speaking of users. Can you tell us how many you have now?
Pirat: We are constantly monitoring the influx of users to the system. And if you analyze all the data, now comes to us every day around 90 new customers. In total, the system registered more than 11,700 people. This is from September 2013.
Editorial: That is to say that the official launch of the system in September?
Pirat: Yes, or to be more precise, the system was officially launched on Friday, September 13, 2013.
Editorial: What motivates you more enthusiasm or still just a commercial interest?
Pirat: Me driven to victory, because, as any webmaster, first of all I'm interested in the success of the project in 2014, the Pirates have already earned commissions on more than $ 2000. And it confirms that the bright intentions will always thank financially.
Editorial: This is good. I ask to talk a bit, what is the key success. How did a relatively short period of time to attract users? Tell us what is necessary to do and how many?
Pirat: First, was originally there is good communication with the future users of the system. Also been divided client across various sectors, all of which were made by hand pirates who, of course, can be displayed on WebMoney and Bitcoin! At first people did not believe that someone can give 1-3-5-7-10 and even $ 20, but gradually handing over distribution attracted people! But other than that, we understand that the development of the payment system with no shops that accept the currency, it is impossible to us and joined the first store. This VPN-service with offline Bitcointalk! More - more. The main breakthrough, of course, given the investment funds that take the pirates, now there are seven. Of course, have to do a lot, and stay on our laurels, we are not going to!
Editorial: What attracted you serious investors, then, of course, a lot. Very pleased that Russia has a system and the people who allow secure payments.
Pirat: Russia - the land of talent, no doubt! Promotion payment system hands of its owner seems insane! Are all used to say: "We are in Panama, we are in Europe." We, we, we! Continuous MMM! In our case, we came a touch of irony to the project! Everyone understands that the share of humor at the same time indicates the seriousness of what is happening! I did not know the best way to make people trust me money but to show that the pirates themselves may entrust money to put on the account and withdraw! Then like a mirror: if you are smiling, and then you smile.
Editorial: This is brilliant, and like all brilliant - just. By the way, do you plan to make the system more complex, for example, create new services in the system PiratCoin?
Pirat: Yes, and the main goal at the moment - is the addition of new ways to output to countries such as Ukraine, China and India. Finding the mechanism of transfer on the cards for these countries, we can say with confidence about the growing popularity of the pirates, but we look around! Also, the system we have our own prepaid cards available at piratprepaid.com! Speaking of the "chips" of protection and improvement of the functional, the procedure itself and the refactoring engine update on new technologies for our plan to be held in 3-4 months, to reach 25,000 customers! And it is this: 1) password recovery by email with an additional level of protection, 2) SMS password to login, 3) the system mini-credits in your account, and 4) the ability to create prepaid-card pirates and transmit it as a gift or exchange (issuing cards with balance).
Prepaid-Card is a two pairs of numbers and letters that have a pirates "dry." Everything is simple! For example, you have purchased or have changed the map of the pirates. There are two pairs of numbers. Pirates on the site you specify the amount that must be removed from the card and wallet pirates, where she put it - voila! That is to say, coins PiratCoin in solid form. In the future, prepaid-card could be distributed worldwide.
Editorial: Yes, really ambitious goals. It's no secret that the Russian authorities actively oppose Bitcoin, and other altkoinov kriptovalyut. How do they explain the cause - the fight against terrorism and money laundering. Whether there is the fear that because of the fact that your system offers anonymous payments on you can also make pressure?
Pirat: Yes, of course I was very upset that day when a law on the persecution of Bitcoins. But calmed down when I realized two things: 1) my credo - no retreat, no surrender, 2) I know that, for example, the owner has PerfectMoney Russian passport and lives in Russia. In addition, we actively go beyond Russia and have already a lot of clients from Vietnam, Poland, Ukraine, and India. We plan to further develop this area. Of course, we warned about the risks of all. Pirates concerned as well as Bitcoin or PerfectMoney in Russia! I want to add that I support the reputation of a reliable person who wants to remain anonymous. And seeing the confidence of the users, I will do everything to continue to "pluck a standing ovation" for ingenuity and reliable service.
Revision: But I have one burning question. Even before the New Year, I deposited the bill PiratCoins purse WebMoney. Everything went instantly. However, in deriving back (with Pirate on the VM) had to wait a few days. Do you plan to accelerate the process of withdrawal from the system?
Pirat: Yes, this question was supposed to be, because it disturbs everyone! Indeed input of money in Pirates automatic, but output delays! Delay at the beginning of course, there are big: users sometimes had to wait a week! Now applications perform from 1 to 24 hours. The output looks like this: once a day (in the afternoon) collect applications, where there are the same purses, combine and send a request. The amount of claims paid always, though there is a slight delay. Now we derive every 24 hours, but soon concluded accelerate to every 12 hours.
Editorial: It's good, because then there is nothing to worry. As I understand, the system is no commissions?
Pirat: Commission to enter the system at the moment is 1 percent, a maximum of $ 5. At the conclusion of the system commission is not charged.
Issue: I want to know that "behind the scenes". Tell us about your team.
Pirat: So far we have only three. Among them I - administrator, webmaster, principal owner and chief ideological rolled into one. Also, our team has the developer - a genius programmer who graduated from the MSTU. Bauman. The Third Man - my deputy, who is responsible for communication with the part of customers. In principle, each of us doing a lot of work.
Editorial: Tell me, to whom is largely oriented system: for a simple user, or still have a goal to attract business?
Pirat: We will do everything to increase the coverage! First of all I would like to see the hosts in the ranks of their customers and the company by type and WMmail CoinAd! Also there is a great desire to enter foreign markets by micro-payments, because pence saves!
Editorial: A general wondering how you image appeared pirates who got the system?
Pirat: The image of pirates originated long before my eyes, but not obviously! Worldwide pirate movement is gaining momentum! As an ambitious and purposeful company we decided to give a powerful and terrible name of your project. Therefore, we are confident that the system will PiratCoin conquer greater heights.
