Firstly I want to congratulate the people behind all of this for making AUR a reality. Secondly, I must also express my excitement when I heard that this cryptocurrency was made for Iceland.
I'm an Icelander who studies abroad, so I didn't know about this until way too late. I was actually reading about Bitcoin and its potential as an alternate currency to fiat currency when I discovered AuroraCoin, and man did I get excited!
My question to all of you is this:
How can regular people, with no computer science/technical background help?
I really want this project of yours to work and I'm wondering how we can help.
Sæll/hi Jón and welcome.
I like you, perhaps don't have the right technical background for crypto, I'm a engineer not a programmer. On the other hand I have extensive experience from the banking sector and do what I can to reply to posts about Auroracoin and talk to people about how Auroracoin is perhaps the best solution to the currency controls and the inflation in Iceland. I also try to link my banking experience, i.e. trading on the Icelandic stock exchange to Auroracoin by investing in a ISK/AUR exchange with two other here on auroraspjall.
Soon we will need some people to do translation work, become beta-testers (if you have Icelandic kennitala and a bank account in Iceland).
Later you can help us promote Auroracoin, create games or activities where Auroracoin in involved, perhaps mix Auroracoin with something you are involved in now.
When the new exchange is up and running you can become a market maker by buying and selling to minimize the spread on the market. Buy stuff from merchants that accept Auroracoin, go the extra mile and trade with them, then buy the AUR again on the exchange.
If you are a good with words, pick your field and start spamming questions and answers on the forums and if you are up to it write articles and get them into the local papers.
Then when the exchange is up and running try to get as many merchants to accept Auroracoin.
