What is Peercoin (PPC)

One of the oldest cryptocurrencies besides Bitcoin, Peercoin is prominently remembered as the original pioneer of the proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus, which has become prevalent among many emerging cryptocurrency networks.

Peercoin is a public blockchain network that was created in 2012, and focuses on building a robust alternative to Bitcoin’s energy-intensive PoW consensus, with some unique characteristics like on-chain voting and the inclusion of PoW mining for more equal distribution of tokens.

Peercoin (PPC) features

Peercoin is the original PoS cryptocurrency, and enables any node to participate in the staking process with its native PPC coin. However, Peercoin utilizes a hybrid PoS/PoW mechanism for the network, with PoS operating as the security and voting component, and PoW mining used to more fairly distribute PPC coins to users.

Stakers in the network can participate in the governance of the network through on-chain voting that determines the direction of the protocol.

Voting is carried out through a process called “Proof-of-Stake Minting,” and is correlated to the stake of PPC that users hold. Voting through this mechanism makes protocol changes more dynamic than off-chain governance procedures, such as those conducted with Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Peercoin is built with modularity in mind, comprised of a “trustless” base layer that confers a secure foundation that enables layered solutions to be built atop of it.

The hybrid consensus design is primarily crafted to enforce balance the distribution and security of the network over time. Miners mine PPC coins, which are then sold on exchanges for profit, purchased by stakers, who subsequently use them to mint blocks via the PoS block minting process. Miners enable a continual distribution of PPC coins to PoS minters in a more egalitarian fashion.

PPC coins are perpetually inflated at a rate of 1 percent annually, but notably, are only distributed to stakeholders that participate in the minting process.
