How is zippcoin different?

favicon
There is no cost to start experimenting with virtual currency – you begin receiving a weekly virtual currency allowance as soon as you open your account.
(Sign up for as many accounts as you like, but only one allowance account is allowed per person.  The zippcoin system currently uses personal Facebook and Twitter accounts to authenticate users as individuals.)
favicon
There are no anonymous users. There is no mystery who owns an account or what someone is doing with it.
Zippcoin is transparent – all account balances and transaction histories are completely visible to others.
You can see every account, who has what, and how zippcoin is spent.
favicon
No special software to download – you access your account using any browser on any modern device.
favicon
No problem if you lose your password, or your personal device.  Your account is 100% cloud-based, so passwords can be reset and you can use any phone, tablet or laptop to access your account.
favicon
No need to do your own backups – your account is 100% cloud-based, backups are automatic.
favicon
No need to ask another for a long wallet address (and/or their complex public key) – you can send zippcoin to anyone using an email address, a Twitter address, or send to your Facebook friends. Even if they don’t have an account yet.
favicon
No need for special mining software or special mining rigs to earn more coin – everyone in the world receives a weekly allowance.
(Zippcoin currently uses Facebook and Twitter to authentication users as individuals.)
favicon
No need to wait for transactions to confirm – it typically only takes one second to complete a transaction.
