Where are my geocoins? Landsharkz is launched!

Do you know what is geocaching? It is an outdoor activity where the members use navigational techniques (ex. GPS) to hide and seek containers (called “geocaches” or “caches”) anywhere in the world. Geocaching is most often described as a “game of high-tech hide and seek”, sharing many aspects with orienteering, treasure-hunting, and waymarking. A geocoin, on the other hand, is a metal or wooden coin minted in similar fashion to a medallion, token coin, military challenge coin or wooden nickel. They are usually trackable on the relevant website using a serial number and website address engraved on the coin. It is a little hard to describe the whole process in two sentences, so we’ll get to the point of this article. We present you Landsharkz, online store where you can purchase Geocaching Supplies and Geocoins.

Integrating something into something is such a loosely term, depending on level of integrations… If you ask me 🙂
