GhostCoin (GHC)

GhostCoin is an innovative, secure and energy efficient PoW/PoS coin. It uses a faster PoW distribution mechanism to distribute the initial coins, then after 8 weeks the coin is basically transferred to a pure PoS coin, where the generation of the coin is mainly through the PoS interests.

GhostCoin also adopt a variable PoS rate, which gives the highest payout at 20% the first year, then increase 5% every 2 years until the 7th year it reaches annual interest rate of 5%, then it will remain at this rate.

Because after 8 weeks it is basically a pure PoS coin, it does not need to be intensively mined, as the PoW payout will remain the minimum. Most coins will be generated through PoS, thus it is a coin that will save a lot of energy compared to other coins.

GhostCoin will have a total of 750 million coins. Initially each block will deliver 1000 to 9000 coins randomly. The PoW payout will be halved each week (7 days). After 8 weeks, the PoW payout will be fixed at 1 coin per block.

PoS will start after at least 20 days of holding of the coins in the wallet. With PoS, the coin is more resilient to 51% attack.

Other Specifications: - 30 seconds block target - 1000 - 9000 coins per block initially - PoW payout will be halved every week for the first 5 weeks - After 8 weeks, the PoW payout will be fixed at 1 coin per block - Difficulty retargets every block - PoS variable interests: - 1st year: 20% - 2nd year: 25% - 3rd year: 30% - 4th and subsequent years: 5% - Total coins will be 750 million - 4 confirmations for transaction, thus fast 2 mins confirmation for transdactions - 50 confirmations for minted blocks - 1% premine for bounties, giveaways, development, support and maintenance, new feature developments etc.
