HTML Transitioning to HTML5
By Adrian Todd Staples

“20 years from now you will be disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the one’s you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain 

Recently in my quest for crypto knowledge, I have come across some changes on the horizon... Change is SCARY, big change even more so. However, with out change and innovation we would be stuck in a boring, dark, and quiet world. Lets start with something I learned in school. 

Change is a pretty phreakin big deal! When you start doing things one way for so long, it becomes habit. The bigger the change the harder we fight against it.

Big changes are happening in the HTMLCoin camp! Change is healthy and creates the best chances for growth, when done properly. As you are probably well aware there is a major transition happening. Old htmlcoin will be no longer, we must make room in our hearts and minds for the new and improved HTML5! Its announcement may be a bit scary at first but lets see if we can break it down a bit. The new plan includes a change to an X11POW algorithm, re-targeting protection on the dark side, and a changeover hosted by Bluetrade (for now, more to come). 

Also in the official Ann HTML is providing a plan that will, in my opinion, set our mind at ease looking forward. The changes will allow for faster wallet sync, a resource page for any unanswered questions and a wonderful team that is willing to do what it takes to see this coin succeed. Looking farther into the future plans as things progress, should you feel the need to help out the cause... we are looking to expand via mobile wallets on both Android and IOS, more merchants to add to list of supporters, more point-of-sale options, more exchange sites, and a new mining pool. 

So many coins have fallen through the cracks due to lack of community support. Dedicated team members are hard at work to make this a success. Please stay with us in this scary transition, and remember that without change growth is not possible.
