Anime community dedicated project AnimeCoin is going to fork its original ANI token into ANIME on May 30. Along with the fork there will be an air-drop of the new tokens to all owners of the original ANI. Initially, the ANI coin served as a mere currency for the anime community, artists and collectors of anime art. Now, the technology allows extended functionality be built in at the protocol level and revolutionize the way digital anime art is created and collected.
The new ANIME will feature:
built on top of a fork of the latest version of Zcash
provides stability to the PoW backbone
2.5 minute block time and a larger block size
these will mitigate some of the scaling issues due to the growth of Bitcoin use
shielded transactions with Z-SNARK
will ensure the security of sender and receiver
ensure the fairness and transparency of the initial coin distribution
Air-drop rate is set at 1.0 ANI = 5.14 ANIME. More detailed explanation of the fork process can be found here.
