"Bean Cash is Bitcoin's Big Little Brother - Fast..Simple..Secure..More Than a Digital Currency!"
What Is Bean Cash?
Bean Cash (Ticker: BEAN) is a re-brand of BitBean (Ticker: BitBean). Bean Cash brings forward BitBean's legacy, of a lightening-fast, rock-solid network, with a mature blockchain--that is nearly 3 years old! 3 years is a long time in the "crypto-currency" space! In this time, BitBean has not had a hardfork or transaction roll-back. Bean Core will continue to move development forward with Bean Cash, while working to maintain the integrity of the blockchain. As core developers of Bean Cash, Bean Core sees its role as a steward. The very first purchaser of BitBean that may have transfered their BitBean to a Digital Cash (a "paper wallet"), should be able to redeem those tokens 90 years later, as "Bean Cash". If this is possible in 90 years, then Bean Core and developers of Bean Cash, will have filled the mission: "To be an enduring digital currency, with high integrity, a store of value and a means of exchange of value in every day transactions -- that stands the test of time!"
Bean Cash is a digital currency and network, designed for scalability, speed, and lightening fast transactions! It features an innovative Proof of Bean (PoB) algorithm that more closely resembles traditional Proof of Work (PoW) crypto currencies. Bean Cash is the first digital currency to implement 20MB blocks, based off Gavin Andersen's proposals to fix Bitcoin's scalability limitations. Bean Cash is designed from the ground-up to be a transaction-centric and superior form of currency, for exchange of value in on-line purchases (idealy suited for microtransactions) and purchases with traditional brick-and-mortar merchants.
In it's mission to be a transaction-centric currency, a digital currency with real use. One of the main goals for Bean Cash is solving the "last mile" issue in the digital currency space. Instramental in this objective will be working with companies that are willing to implement Bean Cash at the Point of Sale/Service. Bean Cash is designed to support a network with over 1,300 TPS (Transactions Per Second), effecively being able to compete with companies such as PayPal.
As developers of Bean Cash, we are not looking to re-impliment a transaction system, based on the "Check/Cheque" model (et al. Bitcoin), where a merchant approves a transaction based on simple verification, and settlement happens much latter. That kind of model does not provide any more value than existing, charge back prone, credit cards.
Rather than use archaic models of the past, Bean Cash will allow merchants to verify, validate and settle transactions in near real time (a minute or less on average for a single confirmation transaction.) This is magnitudes faster than Bitcoin (10-30 times, or substantually more if transactions are back-logged), while providing no risk, with transactions being posted in near real time to the Bean Cash blockchain. This provides real value by allowing merchants to reduce risk, fraud, and costs as their percentage of Bean Cash transactions increases in their business. Fundamently, a zero confirmation transaction does not help to solve a real-world problem, as merchants still bear risk as with existing traditional payment methods (checks/cheques/Credit-Debit cards).
