# I still don't understand how you earn coins

XchaosX
I am not sure how you earn coins I know what they are used for but how do you earn them I know I posted a couple of topics one day and I had some but how do you get more.

You get points when you post, and at the end of the day if you've reached over 45 points, the extra are converted into coins through some equation I haven't looked into then your points are reset to 45.
basically If you've got over 45 points each day you post then you will get coins

If you pass 45 points, next points are added to the coin (ex. 47=45 point+2coin).

I dunno if I would put it that way, almost looks like you would earn a lot of coins or I am just reading it wrong LOL. The way I would put it is:
47-45(turnover amount)=2 coins

Not quite. The amount earned is 2^0.6. I think you should read this post. It got everything that you need to know about coins.

What the other have said is correct. If you post 10 posts worth 5 points each, you would get about 2.3 coins (points-1)^0.6. The reason the points are reduced by 1 before coin valuation is because of the daily hosting usage (except if you do not yet have hosting account).

wich mean if you already have 45 all beind that will be converted in coins once the system updates
great so is simple to earn coins

what are coins used for? If you end up down to a zero balance on the points, will the coins then kick in to cover after the points are used up?

Coins are used to purchase domain name coupon code.
The transformation is one way, only points can be transfer to coins.

Perhaps one should qualify points with "only points in excess of 45 points in one day can be transferred to coins". Then also check out Bondings' official blog posts on coins:
