Frequently Asked Questions

点点币的初始发布是公平的吗?

是的. Sunny King在发布之前提前9天进行了公告,在启动之前没有任何区块被预挖。论坛中一位用户写道:“[Sunny King]在预先承诺的发布时间(UTC 18:00之前的5分钟)在另一个帖子中发布了源代码链接。当我获得源代码并编译好开始运行时,只生成了5个区块,并没有任何预挖“。

检查点的目的是什么?

自0.2版本开始,中心化广播的检查点已经不再是协议的一个关键部分。其目的是在初始成长阶段用来防御网络的安全风险,同时帮助确保网络平稳的升级。中心化的检查点现在已经逐步弱化,并且最终将去除,以获得类似于比特币一样的去中心化程度。检查点的存在仅仅是作为安全的手段,如果某些破坏性的东西发生,我们使用检查点来作为备份。

What is minting? And how can I start minting peercoin?

Minting (as opposed to mining!) is the term given to Proof-of-stake block generation in Peercoin, that is securing the network. This earns you 1% annual interest. Coins are first eligible to mint 30 days after they have been transferred. If you want to mint, you have to put some of your peercoins at stake in your wallet. Read this guide, if you want to know how to do it and how it works.

You can calculate how much you will earn minting with this PoS-calculator.

点点币是通胀的吗?

点点币的货币供应量由以下几部分决定:

  • 工作量证明挖矿(增加货币供应量)
  • 交易数量(每笔交易使供应量降低0.01PPC)
  • 股权证明挖矿(以每年1% 的速率增加供应量)

幸好有持续不断增加的挖矿者的参与,点点币的通胀速率在2014年上半年一致性的维持在5%以下。按照现有的这种接受程度,通胀率还将随时间继续下降,这使得点点币相比其他加密学货币来说具有更低的通胀率,并且更具有可持续性发展。

1% 的挖矿奖励对所有用户是公平的吗?

是的. 随着挖矿过程的进行,整个货币供应量增加,所有参与挖矿的点点币持有者保持其相对的市场份额。尽管较大的持有者可以获得更多数量的点点币,但是从百分比来将,他们相对于其他的挖矿者并不能获取更多。

点点币是一种投机拉高出货的币种吗?

点点币带来了创新的功能,拥有活跃的开发者以及巨大的社区参与。到2014年8月1日,点点币已具有近两年的历史,其实质超过2000万美元。

Where and how can I buy peercoin?

There are many exchanges, where you can buy peercoins with fiat money (dollar, euro, …) or in exchange to other cryptocurrencies (bitcoin, …). See this list of exchanges.

In Europe and Russia currently most people recommend using LiteBit.eu and The Rock Trading. Former btc-e.com isn’t active anymore, it was replaced by wex.nz.

Where is the roadmap?

The newest roadmap was released on 2017-12-02.

You might also be interested to look at the RFCs in our Github repository, which shows ideas that we are thinking about to implement and things we are working on, but without any schedule.

How can I install a Peercoin wallet?

You can download and install a wallet client software on your computer or telephone.

We strongly discourage the use of web-wallets.

Who are the richest peercoin owners? Is there a richlist? What about the wealth distribution?

You can find it here. As with many other coins the richest peercoin owners are exchanges.

Where is my peercoin? What happens to my transaction? Where can I check the status of the blockchain?

You can search for a specific address, a block number, a transaction ID and tags in one of those Peercoin Blockchain Explorers. There you can also find price charts, statistics about energy consumption and the status of soft-forks.

I have more questions, how can I get in contact with other Peercoin users, developers etc.? Where is the forum? Is there a chat?

Write us in the Peercoin forum or chat with us on Discord.

You may also ask questions in our Peercoin reddit channel, retweet and respond to our official Peercoin twitter account.
