NeuCoin: What's it all about?

Just wanted to open the floor for discussion about the upcoming currency NeuCoin.

In a time where many are uncertain about the future of Reddcoin, I think this can be a useful and healthy discussion. Let’s just try to keep it cordial, shall we? :wink:

Some things that come to my mind:

What’s NeuCoin’s appeal?
Is it really just another alt-coin?
Why are there so many investors?
What’s it doing that Reddcoin isn’t doing?
Is the technology any better?
Does the package in which the technology’s presented make it more desirable?
Could the mainstream favor it?

I want to know what the supposed plot twist on the creator/investors is that was alluded to LINK

Is the twist?

I think it’s fairly rude to promote/discuss another coin on these or any other coin forum and would not be surprised if it gets deleted

Chinese traveling company is rather good, I believe. But if you have chosen the specific country or place, it is necessary to work with the reliable one. For instance, I am happy to be with https://www.russiadiscovery.com/regions/baikal/ in almost all my travleing to Europe. Isnt’ it great to find the quality agent?
