Is Superior Coin Really Superior?
It’s a fascinating story, how a coin was developed, nearly destroyed then overcoming all obstacles got listed on several exchanges.
I’m not sure when Superior Coin was first thought of, I don’t suppose anyone really does. It’s one of those things that sit around in the back of the mind as something you ‘might’ look at seriously, one day.
Whenever it started, it wasn’t at that time called Superior. The brilliant mind behind Superior is Nathan Senn who is, like most dedicated programmers is often more comfortable in front of a computer screen than with people, unless he knows them well.
He began by offering his ‘coin’ still in development to a social and market place platform similar to Empire Kred to use as ‘native money’ to interact within the Crowdify site.
It evolved from there to a stand alone coin based on the Monero blockchain. The founder of Crowdify and Mr Senn parted ways with quite a lot of acrimony, especially from the Crowdify side. Many tales were told, the majority of which were either outright lies or ‘canted’ to show Mr Senn in a bad light.
Naturally, this caused a deep split within the community who supported the coin. It had been decided prior to the split that the coin would be called Superior and its ticker would be SUP.
After the split, some wanted to change the name, some because they wanted to distance the coin from Crowdify, some because they thought the name a little arrogant.
Mr Senn stood firm, he had he said, nothing to be ashamed of and publicly stated that his coin was no longer associated with Crowdify. His decision seems prophetic.
Many people of the Crowdify side of the split, posted derogatory comments and tried very hard to ensure the coin never took off.
The supporters however rallied and showed their superior mettle as they answered lies with truth, refused to allow any negativity to take root and worked unceasingly on perfecting the coin.
During this time, Crowdify and its adherents continued to try and destroy the coin, ridiculous threats were made, talk of the FBI in many countries knocking on doors of those who did little more than continue to support Mr Senn. The majority by doing nothing more than following his efforts and reading posts.
The FBI is coming to arrest you.
Yes, this ridiculous threat was made. To clarify once and for all. The FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) does not have jurisdiction on foreign soil unless a special exception has been made. To quote their own website;
What authority do FBI special agents have to make arrests in the United States, its territories, or on foreign soil?
In the U.S. and its territories, FBI special agents may make arrests for any federal offense committed in their presence or when they have reasonable grounds to believe that the person to be arrested has committed, or is committing, a felony violation of U.S. laws. On foreign soil, FBI special agents generally do not have authority to make arrests except in certain cases where, with the consent of the host country, Congress has granted the FBI extraterritorial jurisdiction.
For anyone to make claims that the FBI was going to arrest people as far apart as South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Wales, Finland and Honduras is and will always be, ridiculous.
To the Moon and Beyond
Despite all efforts to the contrary (we don’t have time and space to go into all the things said and threatened here) even trying to frighten and bully people, Superior coin has prevailed and is now being traded on exchanges. A testament to the tremendous efforts and basic decency of those in the core team who continue to work to get this coin mainstream.
Will they succeed? They have a superior team, a superior coin and a SUP ticker. Against all odds, they’re listed on 3 open exchanges, you can mine the coin, use it on Kryptonoa to pay for goods and services.
They’ve done their part, it’s now down to you to spread the word, to join the crusade and take SUP to the moon and beyond. Finally, when you see posts about ‘The Death of Superior Coin’ whether on Twitter, Facebook or anywhere else, you can point people here to see that Superior Coin is not only alive, but kicking.
