    NeuCoin was a Paris-based cryptocurrency announced in February 2015 by Daniel Kaufman.[1] It is a fork from Peercoin[2] and is thus a proof-of-stake (POS) coin that pays interest as it is staked. Neucoin was pitched to investors as a solution developed for the market of micropayments.[3] NeuCoin raised $1.25 million from venture capital and angel funds.[1][4] The project further raised 4,012 Bitcoin from retail investors in an ICO.[5][6]

    The NeuCoin team consisted of Daniel Kaufman, Johan Sandstorm, Ophélie Pubellier, Scott Walker, and Sandrine Ayral.[7]

    The currency was launched on September 23, 2015. The currency had a team of ten founders of backgrounds in various industries, as well as a million dollars in investment from angel investors.[8] In December 2015, NeuCoin launched a tipping platform on the internet radio service Jango and a Facebook game called Solitaire Racer. In September 2016, NeuCoin launched a second Facebook game called SongQuest.

    On 25 November 2016, NeuCoin announced that its Foundation would "cease supporting NeuCoin services, destroy its remaining coins and dissolve itself". The money raised from retail investors was not returned.[9][10]
