Time to look at some more new coins, as people keep sending in requests, and we try to oblige. Xanon (X Anon) was only ninja launched 2 days ago, but it seems they have gotten a big amount of attention already. Are you curious?
There are quite a few things about Xanon that might either upset you, or make you cheer. From what I can see, this is done by design, so we’ll have to wait and see how it all plays out. Let’s start with some general good facts.
For starters, Xanon is one of those rare breed digital currencies which do not have an IPO nor a pre-mine. There is also no “when you mine a block a certain percentage gets sent to the developer fund” BS going on. No unpleasant surprises so far!
Xanon will have an estimated coin supply of, and you are not reading this wrong, 1,555,200,000 XAN. A total of 10,080 blocks will be mined over the span of seven days. Staking interest is earned at a rate of 1% per annum.
For full disclosure, I have copied Xanon’s technical specifications below :

Further development plans for Xanon will be unveiled once the Proof-of-Work stage has ended. It is unclear what we can expect at the moment, but apparently multiple whitepapers will be published. We will keep an eye out for updates.
