|CryptoCoin.com: Peercoin (PPC)
Peercoin (PPC) is a decentralised open-source cryptocurrency forked from Bitcoin in 2012. Peercoin's major distinguishing feature, compared to Bitcoin and most other cryptocurrencies, is that it uses a hybrid proof-of-stake/proof-of-work system as its consensus mechanism, thus reducing the risk of certain network vulnerabilities. Other characteristics include increased energy efficiency during the mining process, no hard limit on the total number of coins issued, a 1% annual inflation, and fixed protocol-defined transaction (at 0.01 PPC) fees which are destroyed to offset the inflation rate and to self-regulate transaction "spam" by eliminating low-value payments.
