Bitcoin is the first successful internet money based on peer-to-peer technology; whereby no central bank or authority is involved in the transaction and production of the Bitcoin currency. It was created by an anonymous individual/group under the name, Satoshi Nakamoto. The source code is available publicly as an open source project, anybody can look at it and be part of the developmental process. Bitcoin is changing the way we see money as we speak. The idea was to produce a means of exchange, independent of any central authority, that could be transferred electronically in a secure, verifiable and immutable way. It is a decentralized peer-to-peer internet currency making mobile payment easy, very low transaction fees, protects your identity, and it works anywhere all the time with no central authority and banks. Bitcoin is design to have only 21 million BTC ever created, thus making it a deflationary currency. Bitcoin uses the SHA-256 hashing algorithm with an average transaction confirmation time of 10 minutes. Miners today are mining Bitcoin using ASIC chip dedicated to only mining Bitcoin, and the hash rate has shot up to peta hashes. Being the first successful online cryptography currency, Bitcoin has inspired other alternative currencies such as Litecoin, Peercoin, Primecoin, and so on. The cryptocurrency then took off with the innovation of the turing-complete smart contract by Ethereum which led to the development of other amazing projects such as EOS, Tron, and even crypto-collectibles such as CryptoKitties.
PacCoin (PAC), or the People’s Alternative Choice Coin, is a lesser-known coin that’s been sitting since 2015. It experienced rapid inflation during 2017, which might be attributed to generous mining rewards. At the start of 2018, PAC had become one of the cheapest cryptocurrency coins out there, with a relatively large total supply of roughly 3.5 trillion coins and a planned cap of 100 trillion. It has a devoted community that hopes to see their holdings come to fruition and make them rich, believing in its future as an “Internet penny” that lends itself to micro-transactions. PACcoins started to trade at 0.0000$ as of only a couple of days ago. Later on, the coin gained some on its price with a couple of increases that helped the price jump from non-existent to existent. After the latest decrease that made the price drop for over –9%. This decrease led to the current price of 0.000031$, which is still better than having the coin traded at 0$. For now, it remains uncertain what will happen with PACcoin and how well this coin will perform after being re-launched three weeks from now. For now, we strongly advise to give this token a thought and consider investing – the price is still too low, so even if the coin drops again, you won’t be losing much money.
