P2P digital currency
FeatherCoin is a fork of Litecoin using its latest build.
One of Litecoin’s biggest advantages is the -based hashing algorithm.
This offers a different solution to Bitcoin, while still being able to run
on GPUs. There are many Bitcoin forks using the original hashing algorithm,
but with the of ASIC hardware, we are starting to see how much
trouble they can cause. ASIC mining hardware is expensive, but outperforms
GPU hardware and will eventually make GPU Bitcoin mining redundant. Scrypt
based crypto currency is safe guarded from the effects of ASIC mining.
Feathercoin had an initial reward of coins and will have a total of
336 coins. This makes it four times that of LiteCoin, this is the
same position that LiteCoin was set against BitCoin.
* Default port is 9336
Forwarding this port can help if you have connection problems
* Default RPC port is 9337
This is the port is point your miners towards if solo mining
* 1 minute block target
* difficulty retarget in every block
* 9% maximum change on difficulty retarget
* Block reward halves every 2100000 blocks (currently 80 FTC)
* NeoScrypt hashing algorithm (from block 432000 on)
