- Algorithm: Scrypt is used to encrypt the network’s transactions and ensure it’s an integrity.
- Confirmations: Confirmations come in at an average of every 40 seconds.
- Reward: Rewards started at 20 and have since gone down to 15. Rewards encourage miners to support the network long term and are payments for their processing power. The rewards halve every 3 years and give DGC the same increasing rarity that currencies/commodities such as Gold and silver possess.
- Maximum coins: ~145,500,000 coins will be minted. That is enough to ensure enough supply for circulation especially when each coin is divisible up to 8 decimal places.
