TurtleCoin is fast, easy-to-use and private PoW
cryptocurrency with 13 350 busy turtles
focused on the network adoption.
$TRTL has a noticable green brand, slow supply emission curve
and has the same Units of Account as US Dollar
- only 100 divisible units (shells) per coin. 🐢

The StoryLast updated: 15th Jan 2019
7
How it started:One chilly December night, RockSteady and Bebop were having a beer too many while discussing the madness around fake, flimsy ICOs with no product. Bebop surmised that it just wouldn't be possible to put out a real project nowadays without a serious team, doing serious marketing, and bringing in serious funding.

RockSteady leaned in closely, stroked his beard intently, and had only one response..

"Hold my beer."
Just a perfect story.

VisionTo build an open-source, decentralised, distributed, entrepreneurial and fair TRTL Network where TurtleCoin is just its first application and $TRTL its currency.

Mining economics

33
Total Supply by 2112:1 000 000 000 000 $TRTLhttps://turtlecoin.supply/

35
BTC vs TRTL after 10 years:While Bitcoin has emitted 83.2% of its supply on 13th Jan 2019, TurtleCoin will still have emitted only 27% by 2028.https://www.bitcoinblockhalf.com/

Turtle values
69
- Slow & steadySlow and steady (hard but gradual work) every day wins the race.
70
- Inclusive communityCore devs are always available to answer questions and discuss. Everyone is accessible, welcoming and helps the new guys first!
71
- Education
72
- Build sth. of valueModifing the algorithm, building projects, helping adoption... - do something that adds value.
73
- TransparencyEverything is openly discussed on Discord and open-source developed on GitHub; no private messages between members - many have them disabled completely + Regular weekly Developers updates by blogs and interviews.
74
- FairnessFair launch; 1 node 1 vote vision; can redeem yourself from Exile (don't want to get there!)
75
- Learn from mistakes"We don't need to be first - but let's at least not repeat mistakes others have made before us."
76
- Contribution"Everyone is welcome to contribute to the ecosystem, regardless of skills or knowledge (or lack thereof), and we are ready to help people do so."
77
- EntrepreneurshipBuild an app, payment service or any kind of honest business on top of TRTL Netwok. We'll give you support you need.
78
- Decentralised & distributedOne of the TurtleCoin's core values to be as decentralised and fairly distributed as possible.
79
- PrivacyWhat good is a privacy if it's not integrated at the core protocol layer?
80
- FunWhat sense does it make for the community to show up every day they don't have fun?
81
- SpeedThe most precious resource in this universe is time, let's not waste it. Although you can.
82
- No market talk! (in Discord)No offence, but we aren't here for traders and rent-seekers who don't add value. Moon-talk another coin. We're here for nerds and our users.
83
Support the fork!Contrarian to other projects, TurtleCoin community belives that supporting forks from us is a good thing. It already has started and likely will continue paying technological contributions back upstream while also groiwing the community of developers and contributors familiar with TurtleCoin codebase and values.
