Apparently there is some minor controversy going around where DarkCoin is concerned. There are rumours going around about a hidden pre-mine in some of the blocks viewable on both block explorers. Let’s see what is really going on.
I usually don’t like to give much credibility to rumours, but that doesn’t mean I mind checking up on them and see if they hold any merit. Luckily, or unfortunately depending on how you look at it, I can’t find anything wrong at this point in time.
The blocks people are talking about are numbers 4,137 and 24,138. While it is true that both blocks seem to hold a lot more value than they normally should, that doesn’t mean anything malicious has been going on either.
As you can see when looking up both blocks on either of the two DarkCoin block explorers, they also hold a lot more transactions than most blocks. It’s a very odd thought to see this is a hidden pre-mine by any means.
DarkCoin has always been known for its transparency, from day one, so it would truly shock me if there would be a hidden pre-mine at all. I do appreciate people showing legitimate concern for these things, but there is nothing to worry about folks.
I also found two sources in regards to DarkCoin which have been rather helpful when looking into this matter more :
We will keep you updated on the situation in case we would receive more updates.
