I would kindly ask you to take a more careful look to all the info and am sure you will find some answers. There’s much more to discover in FairCoop but I don’t think its appropriate to analyse the whole project, or FairCoin development, in this thread. Just a couple of things you mention that I feel should be explained better.
Transactions are validated every 3’ exactly and the amount of transactions per block is currently 3000, meaning around 16 transactions per second. But also it is clearly mentioned that "FairCoin is the only blockchain which can adjust such a limit, which is always a compromise between speed and storage consumption"
Also, the transaction fee right now is around 0.0025€… also programmed as an adjustable parameter in the blockchain.
There is a live link to the white paper at the FAQ page you were looking into. But also a dedicated entry to our Main menu there.
Please let me know if there is one elsewhere that doesn’t work. There have been revisions of course but you can follow more in Github
Actually we are collaborating with Triodos to facilitate our exchanges to fiat when merchants need it
Not at all. We operate an official gateway https://getfaircoin.net/about/ to buy/sell FairCoin at the official price (not the market one) which is agreed by consensus on the open global assemblies we hold every month. We see crypto markets as a deficit we cannot avoid right now, but at the same time we try to build an economy free of such speculative powers.
We never claimed to be the fastest nor the strongest on the field right now, but a fair and inclusive alternative currency aiming for the 99% of the people around the world. We are pretty far from that goal for sure, but our path is clear and is against the (euro)banking system and fiat controlled economies that support the 1% right now. The vision of FairCoop goes even deeper to empowering communities to break free from such centralised currencies and make the transition to a truly democratic and free economy.
Hope I’ve been helpful in clarifying some aspects of our project and you are all welcome of course to join the FairCoop Forum or our other channels for more detailed info.
