Well, the swamp of altcoins is getting bigger and bigger. New coins are released by the dozens it seems. However, Particle is not a brand new coin, as it has been around for nearly three weeks now. So what is Particle exactly?
Particle is a CPU-only coin, based on Quark (a pure coincidence that we have multiple articles in a row about Quark clones, must mean they have a good source to work with!).
– There will be 1,000,000,000 Particles in total, when all coins are mined in approximately ten years.
– Difficulty retargets every eight blocks, which translates roughly to every two minutes.
– After block 10,000, the block rewards will halve every 2,500 blocks
– No pre-mine! This might be the first decent Quark clone that doesn’t have a pre-mine.
