After being around in the Cryptocurrency world for a few years, I’m becoming a man who’s hard to impress when it comes to new altcoins being launched. The fact that we’ve been swamped with new coins left and right, with horrible names and no long-term support, isn’t helping either. But every once in a while, something catches my attention…
EarthCoin. A scrypt coin based on Litecoin. Block rewards will decrease, but also increase. Wait, what, increase? Indeed. Every 3 months, the block rewards will go up, or go down. A three-month period, looks familiar? It’s called “seasons”, you know, like we have here on Earth? (Clever, isn’t it?)
“Every 14 days there will be one day with X2 payout, and every 31 days there will be one day with X5 payout.” Maybe not the most innovative of all coins, but I like it, and by the looks of it, a few thousand people seem to like it with me.
Rumor has it that EarthCoin will be added to Cryptsy in the coming days. Even though you can argue that pretty much ANY coin makes its way to Cryptsy at some point, it’s still important to have a well-known exchange listing your crypto coin.
EarthCoin could , in our book, be the dark horse of the altcoin race in 2014. As we have several established coins fighting for power and popularity with various plots and schemes, EarthCoin might just bypass them all because it is….well….all about us!
