Up next on the “coins-i-really-want-to-inform-you-guys-about” , is a relatively new (relaunched) Crypto called BoostCoin, or BOST. Not sure where that second O went, but that’s how it goes I guess? Either way, time to dig in!
You may have noticed I mentioned BoostCoin has been relaunched. The original launch of BoostCoin was on May 9th, but the relaunch took place on May 19th. On the 19th, there was a V2 of the client released.
BoostCoin was actually the first X13 Proof-of-Work/Proof-of-Stake hybrid Crypto that ever saw the light of day. Looking back now, I don’t think any of us can recall who was first, as we’ve seen quite a few imitators come along lately.
The Proof-of-Work phase of BoostCoin ended quite some time ago , and during that period, 11,7 million coins have been generated. Per block, 15 coins were sent to the BoostCoin Foundation for long-term support .
As BoostCoin is currently in its Proof-of-Stake phase, coin holders are earning 10% annual stake. In total, there will be roughly 40 million BOST in existence, but there is no actual hard supply cap.
BoostCoin also has a 1% pre-mine, of which most coins have been used to repay people who lost their BOST because of the relaunch. A very nice gesture from the development team, and something we don’t see very often in the world of Crypto.
Even though the mining phase of BoostCoin is officially over, that doesn’t mean you can’t “mine” BOST anymore. Thanks to the fine people over at CoinKing, there is a BOST multipool. For more information, click here.
BoostCoin can be found on plenty of exchanges, as it can be traded against Bitcoin on BitTrex, BleuTrade, Poloniex, AllCrypt, CoinNext and BTC38. More exchanges are expected to come soon, so we’ll keep an eye out for updates.
