- 1772 coins per block
- subsidy is halved every 131072nd block (every 40 weeks) until a permanent floor of 27 coins is reached, which should happen circa 4.5 years after launch
- no hard limit on total amount of coins; effective amount of coins in circulation should stabilize around 696 million
- initial network difficulty of 0.125, and 2 blocks pre-mined as a measure towards reducing risk of instantaneous forking
- 3.14 minute block target
- employs the Kimoto Gravity Well to adjust network difficulty in order to avoid pool-hopping side effects
