Checkcoin (CKC) is an interesting alternative crypto currency that wants to tie things to real life experiences, and the developers want to do that by combining geolocations with augmented reality and mobile software users that are able to to create, find and reward each other by discovering great places all over the world. You can think about CKC more in the line of Foursquare meeting crypto currency, and if the developers do manage to realize what they have announced as plans this can turn out to be quite an interesting thing. With that said however we do warn you that this alternative crypto currency that uses X11 algorithm and that you can already mine with GPUs and trade on few of the popular crypto currency exchanges is still far from what it should do, but it does have the potential. So you might want to take a look at Checkcoin (CKC) and although we see potential in it you should be warned that we still need to see a lot of development around the announced plans for the coin. We’ve already seen a lot of alternative crypto coins getting announced with big plans and then turning out to be scams or not fulfilling their promises and quickly dying after that.

The Bitcoin Difficulty has just gone to 2,621,404,453 up from 2,193,847,870 or with other words we have an increase of 19.49%. It is interesting to note that the increase of difficulty this time is the lowest in terms of percentage than the increase of the previous five times. So less than 200% is not bad at all for the moment, giving us some more time before the Terahash ASICs start appearing on the market and the difficulty starting to grow at a much higher pace. Luckily we’ll probably have another difficulty increase before users start receiving their pre-ordered THS ASIC devices and we are probably looking at another 20-25% for the next difficulty increase.
