FLASH is a new kind of online network that connects people with websites they enjoy and products they love by using the latest crypto coin technology.
FLASH members earn rewards when they participate with publishers, merchants, and advertisers. It’s easy and free to join the FLASH network by getting a FLASH wallet.
As members collect FLASH coins they can use an exchange to trade them for bitcoins. Once they have bitcoins, they can convert them into cash or spend them with the over 40 million merchants that accept VISA/MC or using a bitpay VISA card.
Members earn FLASHcoins by participating with online partners. Advertisers and merchants who would like to get larger volumes of FLASHcoins for their projects can purchase them on an exchange, or directly from the FLASHcoin.io web site.
Built on the strong foundation of technology pioneered by the Bitcoin community, we’ve optimized FLASH to set a new standard in fast performance and ease of use. FLASH will open new doors for applications created by independent developers using the blockchain.
Our community of developers, websites, and users are united in one goal: take the power of crypto coins mainstream by making them easy to use with social media, websites, blogs and ecommerce sites. The immediate settlement and accounting function of the FLASHcoins can be invaluable for your projects, including:
Advertising and promotion
Registration and activation for products/services
Social media incentives and rewards
Rewards for content posting
Online advertising and lead generation
Secure messaging and email
And many more...
There are many ways to get Flash coins:
Open a new account
Refer a friend to the Flashcoin community
Build an application
Have members send you coins to use the application you developed.
You can trade your FLASHcoins with friends, spend them with participating merchants, and in the future, you will be able to exchange them for other crypto coins. FLASH is an easy and low-risk introduction to crypto currency that costs nothing. We’ve made cryptocoins as easy as email.

FLASH is a great way for innovative advertisers to connect with micro-influencers, find and retain customers, and complete transactions.
The dream of every marketer is to know exactly where and how their budgets are spent, as well as to close sales and make them viral. When you reward members with FLASH coins, you establish the path for a future relationship and have the ability to track your new connection. It starts with your creativity and our unique FLASH technology.
Standard IAB FLASHcoin advertising units deliver messages and reward coins to the member. They can be placed directly on sites or delivered through ad networks on regular pages and even to people using ad blockers.
The FLASH wallet works conveniently as a browser plugin. The viewer can see their potential payment before the advertisement begins, and can skip the advertisement if they’d like at no cost to the advertiser. Advertisers only pay for completed impressions.
Digital coins are an increasingly essential and necessary form of trade. Led by bitcoin, the community has millions of users and will become the majority of online consumers in the very near future. Wallet interaction will be a standard feature of every web site. Since FLASHcoins can be exchanged for bitcoins at any time, there are immediate benefits and utility to earning them.
With FLASH coin advertising, we help advertisers monetize a publisher’s ad blocker traffic and reach a high value market that’s challenging to reach:

Increase loyalty and customer communications to drive more sales.
The biggest problem with loyalty programs is that customers rarely value them due to their limited utility. There are thousands of incompatible loyalty programs. With FLASH’s loyalty program, your customer can use it on any website interchangeably and convert their FLASHcoins into bitcoins. FLASHcoins can be used for discounting, couponing, referral marketing and advertising. Your customers can earn FLASHcoins when they spend money on your website as well as earn FLASHcoins for their next purchase. If you would like to add FLASH to your site today, please contact email@example.com
FLASH is a high speed, pre-mined private blockchain designed for use in accounting, loyalty, and security applications. It is legally compliant so you don’t have to spend time dealing with regulators and various agencies. We’ve reserved a portion of the pre-mined FLASHcoins to reward our valued developers. Qualified developers will receive free coins for testing and to help get started. FLASH supports split payments to collect fees in real time as people use your application.
We built the high-performance blockchain to completely confirm every transaction in under 2 seconds. We’ve load tested FLASH to up to 25,000 transactions per second. That’s about 50% of the peak load of the leading credit card system. Once the transaction is confirmed, you can immediately resend the FLASHcoin. Try that with the other blockchains! You can see the code on github here:
We made FLASH cloud-based and secure with a powerful API so you can focus on building your application, not running a blockchain or dealing with legal compliance. Send an email to developer at flashcoin.io today for more information.
Flashcoin Crowdsale Finale announcement
The FLASHcoin crowdsale on Bittrex was unsuccessful due to the missed target of 200 BTC that we were looking to raise. Towards the ending weeks of the crowdsale, we did secure a couple of interested parties to push the crowdsale over the finish line, as most of you who participated are aware, BTC prices have skyrocketed in the months since we have started the crowdsale, after numerous discussions with the community and the FLASHcoin team, we decided it's in the best interest of everyone who participated in the crowdsale to receive a full refund of their BTC in the form of buy wall buyback that Bittrex is working on to initiate soon.
What’s next for FLASHcoin? We made a very important decision that we think will benefit not only all of our FLASHPRE donors, but we think will also serve the community into the future.
|Category||FLASH Quantity (millions)||Percentage||MEGAFLASH Quantity|
|End User Fund||450,000||50%||0|
|Total Available Supply||900,000||100%||300,000|
The ENTIRE SUPPLY of MEGA and FLASH coins will be distributed to the participants of this FINALE (FLASHFIN) sale and our valued FLASHPRE donors.
All Bittrex participants with the failed crowdsale are being refunded in full including transaction fees. FLASHPRE will be getting a 25% bonus and whatever shows up by January 21st for the FLASHFIN will be the last and final chance to get FLASH or MEGA.
Why are we doing this? We watched our friends over at Monero and think they have done many things right. We’ve been very impressed with their community Now, the difference is FLASH is not mineable, the entire supply of 900,000 Million FLASHcoins is already existing and secured by Election Consensus. By distributing all the coins to the people who care enough to donate their hard earned BTC, we think they will be in good hands because they will be the people who help to sponsor developers and projects for FLASH. There won’t be any excess supply overhang, since every coin that will ever exist will be out in the field with the people who count. They will determine who gets coins and rewarded for development. We also expect to have FLASH and MEGA up on an exchange in Canada in the very near future.
We will give everyone an open and the only chance to get in on the FLASH project, we will create a proxy token on Counterparty called FLASHFIN, there will be 45 billion of these and for 0.01 btc you will get 2.25 million FLASHFIN.
Here’s how we will distribute the remaining coins (300,000 MEGA and about 850 billion FLASH), the terms will be:
1. FLASHPRE donors will get a 25% bonus over the FLASHFIN participants as a benefit for being early.
2. The sale will begin on Saturday January 14th at NOON Montreal time and conclude on Saturday January 21st at NOON Montreal time.
3. Sorry, no US or Quebec based residents may participate, we will check IP’s.
4. BTC will be sent to the swapbot and you will receive FLASHFIN counterparty tokens.
5. Final allocation of all the MEGA and FLASH coins will be determined based on 25% bonus on the 101.22344444 btc received in the FLASHPRE sale. Coins donated through FLASHFIN will be added to the FLASHPRE totals. ALL REMAINING MEGA AND FLASH coins will be distributed to FLASHPRE and FLASHFIN donors within 14 days of completion of the FIN crowdsale.
6. No refunds.
We created 900 billion FLASHcoins
Why did we make so many?
FLASHcoins are for everybody, all 7 billion of us.
We wanted Flash to have a number of characteristics:
1. Give the FLASHcoins to users and developers, not miners (since we’re pre-mined).
2. FLASHcoins can circulate widely because they are easy to get in small amounts
3. They will become valuable because they are useful in large amounts for advertising, marketing and other utilities. You buy a large amount through the exchange, which creates a real sustainable model.
4. FLASHcoins will be mostly distributed within about two years, mainly to the users and developers. Help grow the network and earn more FLASHcoins.
5. The FLASHcoin supply is limited. When they are gone, transaction fees will apply (just like bitcoin). Right now we’re saying the FLASHcoins have no value, but that could change in the future.
WHY SHOULD I BUY FLASHCOINS IN THE CROWDSALE?
This is the best way to support our project so FLASH does not have to take outside money with a lot of strings attached. When the community supports FLASH, everyone benefits. Large volumes of coins for your project or just to keep for a rainy day can be found in the crowdsale and eventually on the Bittrex exchange.
CAN I DO ANY MINING? HOW CAN I EARN FREE COINS?
FLASH does the mining for you in a more efficient and fast way. This saves a lot of electricity, and we think it’s better for the environment. Our Whitepaper goes through some of the technical details. We decided to reward people who build the FLASH network, the developers and users. There are a lot of ways to earn rewards using FLASH, such as inviting new users, creating an application that uses FLASH, etc.
DO I HAVE TO STORE MY COINS IN THE FLASH ONLINE WALLET?
Yes. This is a permissioned private blockchain and storing your coins in the FLASH wallet makes it easier for beginning users. We don’t actually store your key, we regenerate it from your password when you login. You also have a way to recover your password. We think these are key features to make crypto more user friendly.
WHAT CAN I DO WITH FLASH?
Beyond sending and receiving FLASHcoins, you can develop applications, participate in rewarding activities and make donations. The possible uses for FLASH are only limited by our members’ creativity.
