Bitcoin Needs an Upgrade

Mining Bitcoin is a massive waste of energy and other resources. It’s indisputable.

In a time when countries are bringing more and more reactors online in order to meet their growing energy needs, we have a morale obligation to do everything in our power to find more efficient ways to do business.

Sure, I’ve seen all sorts of arguments about how the banking industry uses X amount of energy, how "miners" are becoming more efficient.. People that I respect, pioneers in this industry, are buying into, and propagating this narrative.

Don't get me wrong. I love…


As you may already know, we issued a new FarmBook (FRMBK) token on the Binance Smartchain (BSC), on April 9th, 2021. It is now time for existing FRMBK holders to swap their FRMBK tokens from our old (NXT-based) blockchain to BSC. All existing FRMBK collectors are entitled to receive new FRMBK tokens at the rate of 1 FRMBK(new) for every 200 FRMBK(old), as previously announced here.

To initiate a FRMBK token swap from the old web wallet to the Binance Smartchain:

  1. Create a wallet on the Binance Smartchain (BSC). This may be accomplished by adding our custom token to TrustWallet

As many of you already know, we launched a new blockchain earlier this year. This resulted in a more than 5X reduction in the Action Coin supply; from 10 billion ACTN to 1.799 billion ACTN.

These changes have resulted in a mandatory coin swap, with 1 new ACTN being provided in exchange for 5 of the old ACTN. Third party apps, exchanges and wallets that have integrated with us (the ones that we’re aware of anyways), have been notified so that they may facilitate the Action Coin swap for each of their users.

STEX Exchange was the first organization to…

An Open Letter To The Action Coin Community

Dear Action Coiners,

My vision for Action Coin has always been, and continues to be about utility; to make ACTN an instrument to be used for the promotion of small businesses, to create meaningful local jobs, to reward our users for interacting with us, and for telling other people about us.

In 2017/2018 (it seems like such a long time ago), I honestly expected the Action Coin project to take on a life of it’s own, and to perform much better than it has thus far.. With vendors literally lining up to…


Bitcoin Technology

I am convinced that the technology behind Bitcoin and consequently, Action Coin, is a gift that has the potential to seriously disrupt some of the control that evil has over our beautiful planet. This technology could, in theory, end poverty. Open your mind.

It is Time for Action!

Make it your mission to to teach at least one fellow human about blockchain technology, and cryptocurrencies, everyday! Share some ACTN with them (if you don’t have any, reach out to our Telegram community and somebody will send you some). …


The latest version of our Android app is now available for download in APK format. It features an updated design and detailed transaction history.

Action Coin for Android

PLEASE NOTE: If you have the old version of our app installed on your mobile device, you will need to remove it prior to installing the new version. You must backup your private key/mnemonic phrase before doing so!! Failure to backup your private key will result in the permanent loss of any ACTN associated with that key. …
