What It Is: -A digital currency -A means to store value -A fast method to send and receive money -Transparent and open source -Anonymous
Transaction Specifications: -Irreversible value transfer -Transactions are sent instantly and are confirmed in minutes -Double spending prevented by the blockchain -Miners process transactions and create new currency through mining -Transactions can be received at any time
Technical Specifications: Algorithm: Scrypt Block Time: 20 seconds - Enough time to minimize orphans but still provide almost instant transactions. Difficulty: Starts at 0.00024414 – Retargets every 6 hours – It will take 6-8 difficulty adjustments (or ~13000 blocks) to reach desired difficulty of 1. It retargets quickly to adjust to the environment, so stability should not be much of an issue. Miners should also find the system adjusts fast enough to be up to date, but not so fast as to make the environment unpredictable and unstable. Reward: 20 coins per block, halved every 3 years – Consistent rewards encourage miners to support the network long term. Loyalty is rewarded. This also reduces volatility by setting the foundation on a stable path. Due to the fair launch policy, block rewards will grow in value until they reach the 20 coins per block reward. More details below. Maximum coins: 200,000,000
