After receiving a few requests to do an article about Electric (VOLT), and the fact it was on our to-do list anyway, now is a good time as any to do so.
Electric (VOLT) is a modern currency for an electronic age. A nice slogan, as all things we do lately are done electronically anyway.
Electric is a Scrypt coin, with a total VOLTage (see what I did there?) of 10 billion. Difficulty re-targets every 4 hours, and block rewards decrease every 100,000 blocks.
Despite the fact that Electric has been around for a full month by now, not too many people have paid attention to it, which strikes me as very odd.
Yes, Electric has a pre-mine , but which cryptocurrency doesn’t, these days? Honestly, we have come to a point in time and space where pre-mines really shouldn’t bother people anymore….Unless it’s 90% pre-mined of course.
I’m currently mining Electric and getting quite some VOLT , even with my measly 630 khash/second. And my card is underVOLTed too, so I guess it’s just destiny?!
