The new ProgPoW algorithm enables GPU mining of maximum efficiency, making it economically impractical to upgrade to ASICs.
ASIC resistant ProgPoW empowers fair coin distribution, without being consolidated by the government or huge corporations.
Echostake's superior anonymity improves upon Monero's RingCT technology as well as Zcoin's exposing balances.
A new block is mined approx. every 60 seconds providing throughput of 4000 transactions per minute.
Receive protocol rewards through a variety of methods: PoW, PoS, as well as Masternode rewards.
|Block Time||60 second|
|Circulation (1 year)||1,309,357,760 ECHO|
|Total Supply||2,171,597,760 ECHO|
|PoW Period||84 Days (0–120,960 block)|
|PoS Period||1680 Days (120,961–2,540,000 block)|
|Masternode Collateral||250 000 ECHO|
Fair distribution of ECHOs is achieved with ASIC resistant ProgPoW technology which was built specifically for GPUs of AMD and Nvidia for maximum performance utilization.
Maximum efficiency of GPU usage discourages mining with ASICs, as there is no increase in productivity.
ECHO fair distribution is complemented with centralization-proof, energy efficient consensus with masternode staking.
PoS removes economies of scale from participation, while facilitating direct, private, instant transactions.
