ASHEVILLE, NC, April 15, 2019 — The historic gold rush in the Western Hills of North Carolina back in the early 1800s set the region ablaze with mining action. With a very real problem of transporting the gold to be minted in Philadelphia, innovative miner Christopher Benchtler came up with a solution by opening his own mint. At one point, these coins were the only currency accepted by most barterers in the area.
Just as these gold coins quickly became the preferred method of payment for goods and services 220 years ago, a modern day digital currency called GoldCoin (GLC) is situated to put Asheville at the epicenter of ‘gold’ bartering once again. Taking the helm by connecting with residents, business owners and visitors throughout the community, Asheville has welcomed this growing cryptocurrency’s friendly mascot, Mr. GoldCoin with open arms.
And why wouldn’t they? Asheville is Mr. GoldCoin’s new adoptive home and he LOVES meeting new folks and making new friends. He has been popping up all around town and has even summited Stone Mountain in Georgia with followers on a recent ‘Mr. GoldCoin Fan Appreciation Day.’ Mr. GoldCoin aspires to bring information to the community concerning the benefits of spending digital currency in lieu of cash or credit cards controlled and monitored by governmental and financial institutions.
“I’m Mr. GoldCoin, and I am digital gold! My dream is for you to be able to spend me instead of dollars when you are shopping in Asheville, NC. GoldCoin is tomorrows Bitcoin.”—Mr. GoldCoin
GoldCoin (GLC) stands out from BitCoin in that the entire community maintains and creates this form of electronic currency, so this platform offers both stability and security. As an often forgotten birthplace of the American Gold Rush, Asheville is on track to make a resurgence as one of the primary communities to predominantly embrace digital funds exchanges in today’s modern world.
In the near future, the people of Asheville and worldwide will be spending GoldCoin rather than dollars when they shop while seeing their coins grow! Get on board with GoldCoin now with their simple wallet set-up process, and be prepared for the future in more ways than one. And of course, if you happen to see Mr. GoldCoin about town, be sure to get a photograph with him and share your experience on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram!
