XP Coin Swap News

With such a busy end to 2018, it’s been a while since English Teacher Online posted but we’ve saved the best for last to bring you this XP Coin Swap News.

Ratio of the Swap

I’ve just been informed directly by the XP Coin Dev Team that the swap ratio is now set at 200:1 so if you have any of the old tokens you need to make a choice. We’re still waiting to find out which exchanges will be supporting this swap to the new XP Coin blockchain.

After the swap, the old tokens will not be supported by our devs.

The team have considered the swap numbers in relation to the maximum coin cap following a community vote on Discord and many hours of long deliberations. They finally agreed a swap ratio of 150:1 which is going to allow XP Coin to grow at a reasonable rate while ensuring against any one member owning a portion beyond the company itself.

Hard Cap

The community also asked for a “hard-cap” on the coin, with the majority of members believing that crypto-coins with a total cap acquire a better reputation. The new coin will therefore be limited to 120 billion total coins.

Pre-Mine

The team council also determined that an 18% pre-mine would be sufficient for the operations, promotions, and associated costs of running the new XP Coin blockchain.

Master Nodes & Rewards

By popular demand, when XPcoin.io moves to the new blockchain, there will be XP Master Nodes.

The cost of a Master Node is going to be 500,000 “new” XP.

The team took a critical look at the block chain, timing, and associated rewards; and had very intensive discussion that involved looking at various scenarios.

Our team decided to officially set rewards at 10,000 XP for every block at one minute intervals. They are confident that these numbers are in the best interest of XPcoin.io and the community.

Timetable for the Swap

The swap started in mid September 2019 and the team said they would allow sufficient time for all members to swap.

The Future

These were the most critical questions asked by the community and the team is now addressing tasks that rely on those numbers, such as the swap date and span, partners who may want to participate, pools and their contacts, etc.

I will post updates as soon as the XPcoin.io team review and approve more details.

Finally, the Devs and XP team would like to thank you for being a part of the XPcoin.io community. I’m sure we all look forward to these great, new, exciting changes paving the way for a prosperous 2019 and beyond.

Play in the Halloween Haunted House

Halloween or Hallowe’en is a contraction of Hallows’ Evening and is celebrated on the 31st of October every year.

Traditional activities include carving pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns, dressing up in Halloween costumes and going trick or treating.

Halloween is a fun time for telling scary stories, watching horror films and visiting haunted attractions.

This year English Teacher Online invites Rust fanatics to play in the Halloween Haunted House created by Dippy on the XP Coin Rust Server.

What does Trick or Treat Mean?

Trick-or-treating is when children dress up and go house to house, asking for treats such as candy with the question, “Trick or treat?”

The word “trick” implies a “threat” of mischief on the homeowners if no treat is given.

What Costume Can I Wear?

There are many popular Halloween costumes such as vampires, monsters, ghosts, skeletons, witches, and devils.

Nowadays, many younger children prefer to dress up as popular movie characters, superheroes or princesses.

What Games Can I Play?

One common game is apple bobbing in which apples float in a large basin of water and the player must use only their teeth (no hands) to remove an apple from the container.

Another traditional game involves hanging up syrup-coated scones or biscuits on strings. Players must eat the swinging treats, without using their hands, from the string.

Ghost Stories

Telling ghost stories and watching horror films are popular activities at Halloween parties. New horror films are often released just before Halloween to take advantage of the holiday and television specials with a Halloween theme are also very common.

 

So what’s your favourite Halloween activity or costume? Please share your ideas in the comment section and Happy Halloween!

Use XP Coin to Buy English Lessons

With all the recent turbulent fun, English Teacher Online would like to remind holders that you can still use XP Coin to buy English lessons online.

You can pick your lessons from a range of topics or just ask for a ‘free talk’ session on a subject of your choice.

I’ll even write a lesson just for you and post it online so others can share and study it for FREE.

Why Pay For Free Lessons?

You are paying for ‘teacher time’ not the free material.

Every student is advised to look at the study material before each class and come to the lesson with lots of questions.

Teachers help students with pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar. We teach you how to build meaningful sentences that relate to your real life situation.

Each lesson is different because every student is not the same.

How Much Do Lessons Cost?

25-minute lesson is only 400,000 XP

50-minute lesson is only 750,000 XP

5 x 50-minute package is only 3,000,000 XP

Find the live XP Coin exchange rate now. Prices are subject to change.

Why Are Prices So Low?

Large language companies charge over $30 an hour! But you can get massive discounts when you study with independent teachers who have lower overheads working from home.

I want to pass on those discounts to students who pay with XP Coin, the revolutionary cryptocurrency with lower fees than Bitcoin.

We are confident that the XP price will rise in value and that is reflected in our low rates.

Trusting XP Coin to Pay For My Game Time

It’s been 6 months since English Teacher Online started streaming live on Twitch, trusting XP Coin to pay for my game time in the brutal yet beautiful world that is Rust.

In that time, I’ve attracted nearly 400 followers and spoken with a number of key players. I’ve also been promoted to Content Creator in a number of Discord groups and collaborated with fellow streamers.

Meanwhile XP Coin has been focusing on integration, paying gamers for their time by inviting people like you and me to sign up through their rewards.xpcoin.io website.

My XP Coin Research Story

Since March 2018, I’ve earned over 100,000 XP Coins playing on the XP Coin Rust server. I’ve steadfastly watched a bear market in which the price of XP Coin has fluctuated between $0.0003 and $0.000017 – far below its peak of $0.005, hit during the last cryptocurrency bull run of January 2018.

That’s because I’m a HODL or HOLDER who believes in community and I’ll only cash out a percentage of my earnings when the price is right!

As we wait for another end of year bull run, I thought it would be interesting to calculate just how much money I may have earned so far?

Blog post price of $0.000025 x 100,000 = $2.50

January 2018 peak of $0.005 x 100k = $500

x1000 fantasy bull run projection of 2.5 cents = $2,500

Today’s current price of 1 XP Coin is … 

Why Would There Be Another Bull Run?

Looking at the charts, we can see trends, patterns or opposing forces at work in the market. Each bull run is preceded by a triple or 4 times bear market as spiraling pessimism proves the doubters correct.

But for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, as the saying goes, and the signs suggest that another bull run (optimism) is about to happen just as big institutional money enters the market. And because the XP Coin price is pegged to Bitcoin, we should see at least moderate to substantial gains by late 2018 – early 2019.

I’ve never bought any XP Coin with my own money and always played on their server assuming that I wouldn’t see a dime. Yet at the time of writing this blog I have $2.50 in my XP Coin wallet. Real money for doing what I love doing in my free time, role playing, building, raiding and surviving in the brutal yet beautiful world of Rust.

I also have some XP Coin sitting in a staking pool making more XP Coin!

I don’t know what the price will be in January 2019 but I’m preparing to cash out 20% of my XP Coin next time the bull run’s high. There’s still 3 months to get in the game! 

It’s A No-Brainer

You play Rust anyway and you don’t need to spend a penny. Simply join me on the XP Coin Rust server and earn some XP Coin of your own. See what happens with the next bull run. You could make a dollar, $100 or more.

In 3 months you can decide whether to cash out and exchange your XP for LTC or DOGE – or keep earning, building a nice little college fund or house deposit.

It’s a no-brainer because you’re going to play Rust anyway!

Useful Vocabulary

Bear Market – A condition in which security, stock or cryptocurrency prices fall and widespread pessimism causes the downward spiral to be self-sustaining. Investors anticipate losses as pessimism and selling increases.

Bull Run (Bullrun) – A period of optimism, investor confidence and expectations that strong results should continue. Greed encourages speculators to hold on for impossible profits instead of cashing out before the next inevitable crash.

Rules of Football Comprehension

Football, also known as soccer, is the world’s most popular sport. It’s important for girls and boys to start kicking a ball when they are very young as it helps with their development, and many children dream of playing at the World Cup when they grow up.

Teams

A football match is played by two teams over two 45 minute halves. Each team starts with a goalkeeper and 10 outfield players. Three substitutes are allowed for injuries or tactical changes.

Goals!

The game begins with the toss of a coin and the winning captain decides which goal to defend or to take the first kick off. All players must use their feet head or chest to play the ball. Only the goalkeeper is allowed to use their hands, and only within their goal area which is marked by white lines in a box shape. The aim of the game is to score a goal, which is achieved by kicking or heading the ball into the opposition team’s goal.

Referee and Linesmen

If the ball touches or crosses the side line, it is thrown back in by the team that was not the last to touch the ball. The game is controlled by a central referee, and two linesmen. They award free kicks and penalties when rules are broken. For continual breaking of rules or for a bad foul, the player may be given a yellow card warning. Two yellow cards or a red card means that player is sent off the pitch and the team must play with less people on their side.

Winners

After 90 minutes, the team with the most goals wins. Sometimes, a game will end in a draw, 0-0 or 1-1. League teams get 1 point for a draw or 3 points for a win. In cup competitions, such as the World Cup, draws are often settled by extra time or a penalty shootout.

Reading Comprehension

Now try to answer the questions using full sentences.

1) How long is a standard game of football?

2) Why are substitutes allowed?

3) Which parts of the body can all players use to touch the ball?

4) How does the referee control a game?

5) How are red and yellow cards used?

6) What’s your favourite sport and why?
