NovaExchange is closing down. Please withdraw your coins by March 2018.
Kindly note “Novaexchange” will have new owners and management effective April 2018, with major upgrades to the exchange to better handle scaling, stability and security.
For better management and security of customer funds we have decided to close down Novaexchange so that the users can withdraw all their funds with no participation/responsibility of action of the new management.

The majority of coins are being delisted from PoSWallet, both the exchange and the staking wallet. They are apparently changing to focus on fewer coins, though will re-add some delisted coins back later.
PiggyCoin is being delisted on 6th June. Please withdraw your coins from there immediately, to another exchange such as Cryptopia, or to your personal PiggyBank.
(POSW is a coin made to support PoSWallet.com.)
Unfortunately the NovaExchange.com PIGGY basemarkets (where you could buy many altcoins using your PIGGY) are closing due to low volume! Please close any open orders you have on the PIGGY basemarkets there in case it doesn’t happen automatically. Note that you can still buy and sell PIGGY using Bitcoins, Litecoins, etc.
Coinomi mobile wallet addition
We just need two servers to make this happen. 4 GB RAM each would probably be enough. Mo is contributing 6 EUR/month for a Scaleway VPS and neurocis is looking into having the other one on his property. Please contact neurocis if you want to contribute towards a second Scaleway VPS as that might be quicker to set up.
Call for PiggyCoin educational materials
We recently got an e-mail from a homeschooling group asking for cryptocurrency educational resources. Aside from Mo’s crossword, there aren’t really any educational materials out there for PIGGY. Doesn’t anyone want to make some? There is money to pay bounties…
PiggyCoin was added to the online staking wallet POSWallet.com! You can upload your PIGGYs and other proof-of-stake coins there and leave them working to make interest for you while you enjoy an iced truffle drink.
They also have a faucet (= free coins) and block explorer. Check them out!
Like an exchange, be careful about leaving many PIGGY there for a long period of time. The PIGGYs in your own PiggyBank are the only ones that you truly control.
PiggyCoin was added to some more exchanges recently:
NovaExchange, based in Sweden apparently, has been going for a while:
and they even have some PIGGY basemarkets! Examples:
TradeSatoshi, a new exchange with a London, England, mailing address, are in beta until December.
Crypto-Trade, not sure where they’re based, even have some fiat deposit options! Their user interface could use some work though.
Note: Please don’t keep too much money on an exchange in case it gets hacked or the exchange owner runs away! Be sure to use 2FA/MFA if possible!
Novaexchange is a young-ish exchange based in Sweden. They’ve added PIGGY!
Over the next few days they will be having occasional giveaways of PIGGY in the Trollbox. Novaexchange users who are also BitcoinGarden forum users can also take advantage of giveaways on the BitcoinGarden forum by registering here:
Vote for PIGGY on Livecoin, another exchange for the purposes of less centralisation! https://www.livecoin.net/voting/index?vote=Piggycoin
You can vote for free once a month, but you have to have an active account. They consider an account to be active if any money has ever been sent there, even as little as 5 DOGE perhaps.
It’s not necessary to outright win the vote as they pick coins to list from the top 3 or so.
Just a reminder: We do have an IRC (chat) channel, #piggy, which we gather on quite regularly. If you don’t like “traditional” IRC (and I don’t) you can connect via a bridge like matrix/vector chat at this link:
One benefit of this “bridge” method is you can lurk in the channel from multiple devices, there’s web and mobile clients, and history is searchable.

We’ve been delisted from Poloniex :8[ Please withdraw your coins from there at your earliest convenience.
We are still listed on Cryptopia.co.nz, and we’ve recently been added to a new exchange, CoinExchange.io :8] However, please do not use an exchange as your main PiggyBank — If you have a significant amount of coins, withdraw them to a Desktop PiggyBank (wallet) and be sure to make a backup of your wallet.dat file!
