Popular Coin (POP)
A successful new self-sustaining economic ecosystem that is centered around artistic expression and community rewards can pave the way for more self-sustaining economic ecosystems in the future. Social media and viral trending is currently being used by most platforms to extract user data for profits and the users are not rewarded for their participation. It is time that the wealth is put back into the hands of the users. Not only with their user activity data but with their having to deal with advertisements, users are extracted of all their value while using the platforms that offer no compensation for participation. On top of all of that there is a banking system that is based on fractional reserve lending which holds the interest of the banks over the interest of the consumers creating trillions of dollars in debt rendering most national currencies loosing value. The usage of crypto currencies is trending, more and more people are looking to the new form of processing transactions and holding wealth. We are lucky enough to have the great opportunity of being in the spot light of Popular Culture, living in a time with an overloading amount of new people getting into the world of crypto currencies. Crypto currency interest is surging and the time to buy is now. As more users bring their money into the markets certainly the value of the currencies will grow. And why can’t things just be fun, where we are all benefiting from everything we do? Wouldn’t it be great if everyone could come together over a project that has the potential of benefiting everyone in the world? Madonna herself, the Queen of POP said it best when she said “I stand for freedom of expression, doing what you believe in, and going after your dreams.” and “I am my own experiment. I am my own work of art.” Now this is certainly something to strive for, giving people a freedom of expression and apparatus to make it happen.
The need to facilitate digital web transactions is growing every day. All across the world people and businesses are turning toward the web for solutions to process transactions. The problem with most internet transactions today is that they rely on a third party to process the transactions. What would be a more productive way of sending funds is a way to make an online transaction peer-to-peer (person to person). To get away from relying on banks to process transactions as a third party, according to Satoshi Nakamoto creator of Bitcoin, “A purely peer-to-peer version of electronic cash would allow online payments to be sent directly from one party to another without going through a financial institution” (2009). What makes Popular Coin even better than just a peer-to-peer method of exchange is that POP is open source for programmers to build on and upgrade by submitting their changes through the Popular Coin github repository. Along with that, anyone can view and verify the source code to see how it is functioning which ensures that there are no loopholes or backdoors. Being peer-to-peer and mineable also eliminates the need for high transaction fees and the Popular Coin blockchain will continue to process transactions with zero fees where third party payment processors require fees to fund the overhead costs of a server and network.
The blockchain technology developed by Satoshi Nakamoto and adopted by Popular Coin has pioneered and paved the way for encrypted peer-to-peer transactions. With currency miners connecting to the network and processing the transactions no third central party is needed leaving Popular Coin freely available to use via the global internet structure for super-fast peer-to-peer transactions. Bitcoin technology has disrupted the current financial systems and proved itself as a currency and a great way to store value. The Popular Coin digital wallet can be installed on any operating system and serves as place to safely store POP value. The wallet can be easily secured by encrypted password or passphrase and if used correctly is very safe.
With the U.S. dollar and many national currencies declining in value the products that people pay for are becoming relatively more and more expensive. As Bill Still explains in his documentary The Money Masters, “The central bank scam is really a hidden tax. The nation sells bonds to central bank to pay for things it does not have the political will to pay for. But the bonds are purchased with the money that the central bank creates out of nothing. More money in circulation makes your money worth less. The government gets as much money as it needs and the people pay for it in inflation.” (1996). Popular Coin lays outside of this inflation. Like Gold and other precious metals, there is only a set number of Popular Coins that will be ever be generated and extra Popular Coins cannot be created “out of nothing”.
Crypto Currencies are breaking through and becoming a well known and trusted source of investment and trade. Max Keiser was recently quoted saying “The cryptocurrency market cap will top the trillion dollar level and hit multi-trillion levels because it has this amazing quantum effect, pulling all the fiat money into the Bitcoin black hole store of value.” (2018). With the world of crypto currencies booming with new interest and involvement the time is just right to make the move. The world and Popular Culture is ready for crypto currencies to be accepted as main stream.
What is needed is a way to bring everyone together and connect the world of Popular Culture with the world of crypto currencies. Popular Coin is the best and most obvious choice because it is the coin that is built for the challenge. Crypto currency is something that is exciting to be a part of and Popular Coin takes can take this excitement to its fullest extent.
What makes something Popular? Well part if it is what people personally get out of something that makes it Popular. Maybe they like the way it sounds or looks, maybe people agree with what it is saying, maybe it literally gives a reward, either way people are getting something out of it. If they weren’t getting anything out of it, people wouldn’t give it any attention at all. What if there was an app that actually rewarded and paid people for their social media activity? How Popular would something like that be?
Social media platforms like facebook, twitter, Instagram, and telegram have become a key component to everyday life for Popular Culture. People spread memes, communicate messages and participate all within their personal groups on social media. According to an article published on Social Media Today “Teens now spend up to nine hours a day on social platforms, while 30% of all time spent online is now allocated to social media interaction. And the majority of that time is on mobile – 60% of social media time spent is facilitated by a mobile device.” (2017). What if during all that time spent they were actually being paid? That is what happens with the new form of PoP payout in Popular Coin via a wallet application that also functions as a social media platform and payment gateway.
Once people get involved and start learning about Popular Coin they are hooked! Popular Coin being user designed gives users the ability add input into webfront development, marketing advice like helping with @popularcoin twitter posts, and even working on the source code and providing suggestions to developers for improvements. Raising the value Popular Coin is a team effort and the users are a great source of added value. Users are encouraged to take ownership of Popular Coin and use it to market and promote in their own personal way.
Popular Coin (POP):
Popular Coin – trading ticker (POP), is a scrypt algorithm alternative crypto currency based from the open source of Litecoin and Bitcoin with a faster block speed and more mining rewards with multiple reward epic POP blocks.
The goal of Popular Coin is to ride the tidal wave of popular culture and teach the fundamentals of crypto currencies. Popular Coin’s scrypt algorithm based off the source of Litecoin allows for POP to be mined with the graphics card on your computer. The Development of Popular Coin is based on a play to the socially imprinted words POP and Popular. Popular Coin has 51 second block spacing and 99 coins rewarded per block with extra bonus POP mining rewards.
Popular Coin promises to remain simple to use and easy to learn. Anyone can easily pick up and understand the Popular Coin technology by visiting the website and using the applications. The Popular Coin wallet will continue to be developed with simple functions so that it is not to overwhelm new users.
Popular Coin is intended for entertainment and learning. First and fore most Popular Coin is intended to be fun! Like Popular Coin’s inferred name “POP COIN” how much fun is that? POP’s purpose in fun is to bring people together to learn and communicate regarding this new way of holding wealth. Popular Coin can teach the fundamentals of crypto currencies to new users and help them understand blockchain technology in a way that is fun and exciting.
What is the Magic Behind Popular Coin? What makes Popular Coin Different? Just like popular culture, Popular Coin (POP) will always be changing and redefining itself. Popular Coin is owned by the users and the users are what gives Popular Coin its value. If the users decide that Popular Coin needs a new development or accommodate a new feature, the code can be rewritten, putting Popular Coin far ahead of the competition. This ability to modify and adapt is a core focus of Popular Coin which will lead to even more innovations in the future and even those that have not yet been thought up.
Popular Coin (POP) is dedicated to providing low to none transaction fee forever. Even when the value of Popular Coin reaches the point where the transaction fees become even slightly expensive the code will be rewritten to lower the cost of transactions to the users.
The only way that Popular Coins are generated is by Mining them. The way that Popular Coin transactions are processed is by miners connecting their computers with the network and processing the transaction data. When they process the transaction data every 51 seconds a block of information is generated and the person whos computer processes the ending part of the code gets 99 coins (or the x reward). The block of data generated is closed and added to the Popular Coin blockchain which is a complete catalogue of every Popular Coin transaction that has taken place that is open for anyone to view and verify transactions.

Popular Coin Mining Reward Distribution Calculations:
A message from Joshua Scrypt Regarding Coin Supply:
“Popular Coin was intended to have a large enough supply that there would be plenty of coins to reach out to the largest amount of users yet not too many that would completely flood the market and because there was no premine Popular Coin was immediately very successful expanding its user base. The hopes were that the large amount of coins would reach many people and once fully distributed the value would rise. With the coin supply around 200 times that of Bitcoin once POP caught on it would trade well in the .01$€ to 1$€ range. At this price it is an easy buy in and people can own a good full amount of POP Coins which better facilitates them easily learning the way crypto currencies work. I am confident that once the adoption is large enough to surpass .01$€ that POP will end up and be successful in the 1-10$€ range which would make it perfect for everyday transactions”

User Advertising Participation Preference:
Users will be able to determine the amount of advertisements they receive and the kinds of advertisements they receive.
Difficulty Level (DL): The level at which the user prefers to interact with advertisements
• In the users settings panel they will find the Difficulty Level which is an option to set the amount of advertisement they receive. If the user chooses 100% they will receive the highest amount advertisements and they will also receive the highest amount of payout. If the user decides that they prefer not to see advertisements, they can choose 5% and will receive only 5% of their potential PoP payout.
• The user is given the option of deciding exactly what kinds of advertisements they will be viewing. The user must select at least 3 advertisement categories out of a list of potential advertising groups. If the user prefers sports related ads and they choose the sports related option, then the advertisements they view will be sports related. Another example is a user that would rather view advertisements regarding something that is in their field like science or nutrition, they choose the science or nutrition category and they are able to learn about new products from the chosen field.
How the Numbers Workout:
User POP Score (UPS): Users Personal Aggregated Score Based on the Users Activity and Popularity
Artist POP Score (APS): Artists Personal Aggregated Score Based on the Artists Activity and Popularity
Users Total POP (UTP): Users total POP is determined by multiplying the users Difficulty Level and their User POP Score Score [DL * UPS = UTP]
Artists Total POP (ATP): Users total POP is determined by multiplying the users Difficulty Level and their User POP Score [DL * APS = ATP]
User Cumulative POP (UCP): The sum of all Users Total POP on the POPOLOGY® App
Artist Cumulative POP (ACP): The sum of all Artists Total POP on the POPOLOGY® App
Users Payout Percentage (UPP): The Users Total POP percentage of the User Cumulative POP [UTP / UCP = UPP]
Artists Payout Percentage (APP): The Artists Total POP percentage of the Artist Cumulative POP [ATP / ACP = APP]
Users Daily POP Reward (UDPR): The users Daily POP Payout reward for the day is calculated by multiplying the Users Payout Percentage by the Users Daily POP Total
[UPP * UDPT = UDPR]
Artists Daily POP Reward (ADPR): The artists Daily POP Payout reward for the day is calculated by multiplying the Artists Payout Percentage by the Artists Daily POP Total
[APP * ADPT = ADPR]
At the end of the day all daily POP Rewards are calculated and Popular Coins are distributed to users and artist based on the Payout Percentages via the Popular Coin Blockchain. After the day is over all numbers are reset to O where the whole POPOLOGY® App platform begins another daily cycle.
User Data and More POP Payout:
There is a bonus, users get paid even more POP! POPOLOGY® App users get to decide whether or not their user data is tracked or captured and if it is tracked, the user gets to decide what they do with their data. Yes, that is right, users get to own their personal usage data and can sell their personal user data to the highest bidder.
Companies like facebook, google, yahoo, and bing, and even internet service providers are allowed to collect and then sell everyones user search and activity data. At POPOLOGY® App we think that the people who are participating should be rewarded for their participation and not taken advantage of.
The Popology Foundation Board:
The Popology Foundation is currently accepting applications for 5 board positions. To submit an application, write a detailed letter of why you strongly support the research and study of Popular Culture and what your plans would be to help progress the Popology Foundation. Send applications to firstname.lastname@example.org
