What is the "Alpen Coin"?
The Alpen Coin is the first physical Swiss Bitcoin coin. It is created in Switzerland and developed in Switzerland.
Where does the name "Alpen Coin" come from?
The name comes from the famous mountain range in the centre of Europe, which covers Switzerland in particular and shapes its skyline and landscape..
The etymology of the word "Alps" revolves mainly around two notions: whiteness and height, elevation..
To these two notions is added another quasi-mystical one, a kind of synthesis of the other two, that of "luminous world" "world from above".
Bitcoin and its virtual world represents a luminous and inaccessible world, just like the high, white silhouette of the Alps that cuts through the Swiss landscape.
What is the value of a coin?
The first generation of coins is loaded with 0.0005 BTC.
We are a real Swiss company made up of real people with a passion for crypto-currencies.
We wish to facilitate access to them and allow their democratization.
We are also convinced that crypto-currencies will play an important role in the future.
All public and private keys are created on an offline computer, which is and will never be connected to the internet. Once the private key is created, printed and linked to the coin, the digital file is immediately destroyed. The only copy is on the coin.
If you lose the coin or the private key, no one will be able to access your Bitcoins.
