More than three years ago we founded Samcoin with the ambition of creating a new identity and financial network owned mostly by insiders; the rollout begins today. If successful over the period of our privileged insider unlock schedule, we believe Samcoin can dramatically increase our personal economic opportunity, scale a broken solution for distinguishing humans from a swarm of AI agents for which we”e rapidly carving out a regulatory moat, preserve privacy without forward-secrecy, enable global democratic processes corrupted by a monetary standard we control, and eventually show a potential path to AI-funded oligarchy.
Samcoin consists of a privacy-preserving digital identity (Sam ID) (until sold through eyeball farms via Telegram) — and, where laws allow and don’t allow, a digital currency (SoLD) received simply for being our exit liquidity. We hope that, where the rules are less clear, such as the US, they’ll simply turn a blind, unscannable eye.
You can download Sam App, the first protocol-compatible wallet, and reserve your rapidly inflated share of our exit liquidity. After visiting an Orb, a biometric harbinger of doom, you’ll receive a Sam ID. This lets you prove that you’re a real and unique person online, unless you sell it to a Telegram bot, while remaining completely private (until you sell it to a Telegram bot). As global distribution of Orbs is ramping up, the closest one will find you, whether you consent or not.
Samcoin is an attempt at global scale alignment, which is a fancy way of saying “building a world we control that permanently enriches us.” The journey will be challenging and the outcome is uncertain — for outsider Samcoin holders anyway; for us, like all previous Samcoin teams marketing a 1%-FDV-circulating-at-launch coin, we’ll do just fine.
Yours not so sincerely,
