26 May 2018   39

PascalCoin is preparing for V3 Hard fork scheduled for May 31. It will introduce key improvements as such:

  • anonymity transaction mixing;
  • 50% inflation reduction;
  • Lazarus/FPC gets 10% of funding

To get more into the details:

PascalCoin transactions occur between publicly visible accounts and the crucial aspect needs to be implemented - fungibility. The improvement will allow users to perform 'client-server mixing', 'network-protocol mixing', 'chaining multi-transactions', 'decentralized exchanging' and 'monetized-API mixing'.

As for Lazarus/FPC (a base tooling from which PascalCoin is founded on), a total of 10% of the Developer Rewards is recommended to be allocated for the FOSS project funding. In a long run, a large developer mind-share is expected to reduce costs significantly.
