What is Motocoin?
Motocoin is a cryptocurrency utilizing an innovative proof-of-play scheme where coins can only be mined through manual human work - playing a 2D motorbike simulation game, which is different from Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies that use a proof-of-work scheme where miners must perform difficult computations and then use proof of that work to secure coin transactions and get their reward.
- No need for expensive mining hardware. All you need to mine is an average computer and some skills at computer games.
- No energy is wasted on pointless mining computations.
- It is more secure as it is almost impossible to perform a 51% attack and it would be very expensive to hire enough people, considering that most skilled players would rather mine Motocoin than destroy it.
- A new block is generated every 1 minute.
- The initial reward is 20 motocoins per block.
- The block reward gets halved every 1'000'000 blocks (every two years), but it will never be less than 0.4 motocoins per block.
- Difficulty is adjusted every 2000 blocks.
- ≈40 million coins are to be generated during the first 12 years and ≈200'000 coins per year after.
- The 3 developers of Motocoin were each rewarded 150K motocoins, which ensured them a strong reason to support Motocoin. Portions of these coins will be used for bounties and giveaways.
