Cool, I've never seen  two SOA before, but I don't  believe it will harm
anything.

> biocoin.com.            IN    A    69.60.117.0

Are you sure this is your real  IP address? .0 is very, very rarely used
as an IP address assigned to a host...

> www.biocoin.com.    IN    CNAME    biocoin.com.

No need for  CNAMEs in this case, just  use an A, it will  result in one
less lookup.

> mail.biocoin.com.       IN      MX    1 biocoin.com.

This is backwards... shouldn't it look like:

biocoin.com.	IN	MX	1	mail.biocoin.com.
mail.biocoin.com.	IN	A	ip.address
