BitcoinScrypt aims to decentralize mining by moving from a pure Proof-of-Work consensus algorithm, to a hybrid Proof-of-Stake consensus algorithm. Further, it plans to decentralize Bitcoin-sCrypt coin development by adding CryptoVoter blockchain voting functionality directly to the wallet client to allow for blockchain voting on development issues so that the community can vote on the direction of the coin.
As it was announced on the official website of BitcoinScrypt, it will have a Kimoto Gravity Well hard fork which is scheduled for Feb 19, 2018. All clients are recommended to update to Bitcoin-sCrypt v.1.6.0 before the fork.
