Peercoin & Proof-of-Stake: 10th Anniversary Contest

Peercoin & Proof-of-Stake: 10th Anniversary Contest

Launched in 2012, Peercoin, the first and oldest Proof-of-Stake blockchain, is the original pioneer of sustainable, green blockchain technology. For the first time, Peercoin replaced energy intensive mining with a consensus protocol based on time scarcity, giving all coin owners the power to produce new blocks.

August 19, 2022 marks the 10th anniversary of both the Peercoin blockchain, and Proof-of-Stake consensus. Over the past decade, Peercoin has proven that it is possible for a blockchain to be secured without dependence on energy consumption from mining. 10 years of stable, sustainable operation (with no downtime) is a testament to the quality of the network, consensus protocol, community, team and overall vision.

To celebrate our first decade of successful operation, we’re holding a contest with 8,000 coins as prizes donated by the Peercoin Foundation.

Why Own Peercoin (PPC)? It's Built to Last!

Peercoin is one of the original crypto projects, built with long term sustainability in mind. Ongoing development has maintained and improved the protocol since 2012, while other projects have faltered.

As the first proof-of-stake protocol, Peercoin is a green and sustainable network with many advantages:

  • Efficient, resource-light network security
  • Decentralized and democratized user governance
  • Fair distribution (proof-of-stake for security; proof-of-work for distribution)
  • A reliable, time-tested store of value
Earn Minting Rewards: By joining Peercoin’s 10th anniversary contest, you have the opportunity to win peercoins. By running a minting node with these coins, you can get rewarded for participating in the minting process and producing blocks:

In short, owning peercoins makes you a part of one of crypto’s longest-running projects, and gives you a chance to participate in a global consensus process with opportunity for block rewards. With plenty of room for growth, a sustainable network, governance/reward opportunities, and a coin whose value has stood the test of time, you would be wise to join Peercoin’s 10th Anniversary Contest and start minting!
