LEOcoin (LEO)



What is LEOcoin?
Technical information about LEOcoin
LEOcoin (LEO) is a peer-to-peer digital currency and open source software project. LEOcoin creation and transfer is based on an open source protocol and is not managed by any central authority.

LEOcoin is an altered version of Litecoin and for two years used scrypt-Jane as a proof-of-work (POW) and proof-of-stake (POS) algorithm with a modified nFactor. In July 2016 LEOcoin switched to a sole proof-of-stake procedure. Under PoS users are asked to prove ownership of a certain stack of LEOcoins. This makes the LEOcoin network more secure and over time creates new LEOcoin without consuming large amounts of energy.

The LEOcoin source code on GitHub mentions following properties:

•   LEOcoin algorithm: scrypt-Jane
•   Maximum number of LEOcoins: 1 Billion LEO
•   Premined LEO Company Stock: 50 Million LEO (5%)
•   Block Time: variable
•   Minimum Stack age: 24 hours
•   Maximum Stack age: 5 years
•   Difficulty: Retarget every block
•   No block Halving Rate
•   Block Award: stake interest
•   First block: 15th of June 2014 (15:23:02)
•   Switch to PoS: block 1071500 on 1st of  July 2016 (13:43:03)

PoS operates based on variation difficulty – coins are generated based on age and number of coins in respective wallet so previous PoW (Proof-of-Work) block size of 20 LEOcoin is no longer applicable, block time of 1 minute remained unchanged.
