You know you love that title, don’t give me that evil look.
A few days ago, DuckDuckCoin was released, a new cryptocurrency themed after….ducks and anything duck-related really, like eggs, and …more ducks.
Either way, DuckDuckCoin has seen it’s share of quacktacular problems already, when their “Genesis Egg” got eggnapped.
However, the eggnapper contacted the DuckDuckCoin team soon after, saying he wanted to keep the amount of DUCK he had pre-mined before returning the egg to it’s nest.
Eventually, the situation got resolved, without any shooting. A bounty and some Bitcoins were paid to the eggnapper. No duck(ling)s were hurt during this process.
We can safely call this “The biggest failed pre-mine in history” by now. I’m still not sure whether or not this was all done as a marketing effort or not.
As far as the technical specs of DuckDuckCoin go : Scrypt, very low block reward, only 121 coins total.
To me personally it doesn’t look that interesting at all, but I’ve been wrong before, so maybe I’ll just sit back and shut the quack up.
