The cloud mining company Genesis Mining is going to be adding a new alternative crypto coin to the list of coins you can mine with the cloud hashrate you can purchase from them. After a survey among the company’s customers to see what are the most wanted coins to be added, the list was shortened to just 4 crypto coins – Ziftrcoin (ZRC), Peercoin (PPC), Primecoin (XPM) and Zetacoin (ZET). Out of these four two are using SHA-256 – Zetacoin and Peercoin, so you should be able to mine them directly and the two others – Ziftrcoin and Primecoin are using different algorithms, so you will be able to get paid in them if any of them gets chosen as the new addition.

So we come to the point where you can vote in a poll to choose the coin you want from the four top choices and get the chance to win some cloud mining hashrate. Three people from all who vote will be getting 500 GHS lifetime cloud mining hashrate each at the service (the winner will be picked randomly). All you have to do is cast your vote in the special poll at the official Facebook page of Genesis Mining and you have until Friday May 22, 2015 at 11 pm CET to do so.

Initial coin mining is 160 million coins, thereafter a yearly inflation of 1 million coins. Zetacoin is 20x Faster than Bitcoin, making it one of the fastest for transactions among digital currency and thus perfect for real-world commerce and trade.

  • SHA-256 Algorithm
  • Based on latest Bitcoin 0.8.99 source
  • Block target: 30 seconds (20x Bitcoin)
  • Difficulty retargets every 4 blocks based on last 90 blocks (Quick difficulty readjustment)
  • Block reward: 1000 ZET, halving every 80640 blocks (about 1 month), not dropping below 1 ZET (inflationary)
  • Total coin supply: 160 million ZET + small yearly inflation
  • 160 million coins will be mined in around first year
  • Thereafter around 1 million per year (inflationary). This small inflation is a better incentive to keep the network hashing than purely transaction fees.
