The above mentioned hard fork addresses the issue of hyper inflation, as the extended time of 1200% can make even the smallest amount insanely large. The fork will reduce inflation, but will keep coin supply the same. PoS rewards will be reduced from 1200% to 250,000 coins/block, and PoW rewards will also be increased to match PoS, so as initially to 500,000 coins/block, then to 250,000 coins/block. This should help to increase network security by attracting miners.

At the moment of press, these are main parameters of StrongHands:

  • Average Price $0,000001
  • 24h Volume $83 026
