CACHeCoin is an ASIC proof cryptographic currency similar to Bitcoin and Litecoin, which implements not only a proof-of-work (PoW) system but also a low energy proof-of-stake (PoS) algorithm to secure the network. CACHeCoin was released without any premine; early miners are therefore well-rewarded.
CACHeCoin gives users many options to choose the preferred mining strategy and can be energy efficiently staked using PoS, or mined with hashing power for those who prefer mining pools. CACHeCoin is compatible with all mining pools that support the Scrypt-Jane algorithm. CACHe is accessible for mining by the small scale miner as it is ASIC resistant, which prevents large million dollar investors from monopolizing the coin. CACHe also adjusts difficulty by implementing a logarithmic adjustment algorithm.
CACHeCoin utilizes PoS minting which generates more CACHeCoins for holders, when coins are retained in a wallet for at least 7 days. CACHeCoins´ PoS block require 520 confirmations; once the confirmations are made the staked coins become available again in the wallet. PoS is not very CPU intensive, requires no special programs and once coins have been in a CACHe wallet for at least 7 days new coins will be minted automatically. It is possible to exclude coins from PoS minting easily by using the Reservebalance setting.
With the launch of CACHeCoin a new Bitcoin alternative for the small scale miner has entered the crypto space. With versatile mining options like proof-of-Stake and Proof-of-Work together with its ASIC resistant features and no premined coins; CACHe may be a prosperous option for small scale miners and proof-of-stakers who like to be rewarded for simply holding coins in their wallet.

The fact that the emerging world of cryptocurrency is overwhelmingly dominated by men has never been in dispute. As of April 2014, surveys show that currently the male to female ratio is 19:1, or 95% (male) to 5% (female). This troubling gender imbalance has been voiced by women’s advocates and discussed in different Bitcoin forums; but until now a highly focused and dedicated effort to change the playing field has been lacking.
Developed and fully funded by the same team who created DNotes, Cryptomoms.com officially launched today in the Mid-West, USA; aiming to bridge the gender gap as clearly articulated in their mission statement:
“Cryptomoms.com is a digital community center with a dedicated mission to encourage and assist women to participate in the emerging world of crypto currency overwhelmingly dominated by men. We begin by creating a culture of mutual respect for women with genuine efforts to help them acquire the basic knowledge about digital currency along with many earning opportunities. We will relentlessly pursue to accomplish our mission through multiple campaigns and outreach projects and invite the participation of our industry peers and advocates to join force with us. We will set very specific quantifiable goals and sponsor creditable surveys to measure our achievement against those goals. For the common good of our industry we are committed to make a difference.”
The Cryptomoms forum is already buzzing with great enthusiasm and excitement. In a matter of days one can feel that a new culture is born. There is a great a sense of a family atmosphere, where everyone is genuinely excited to welcome new members, helping, teaching and inspiring each other.
While both men and women are welcome, there is a sense that there is some kind of super “girl power” taking charge that could change the male dominated world of cryptocurrency forever.
The official launch of Cryptomoms.com will begin with a huge give away of up to 3 million DNotes. Participants who register and participate in the forum will be sent 250 DNotes to their wallet address. In anticipation that many will be new to the digital currency world Cryptomoms supporters will be on stand by to help. The site is already fully loaded with instructions and tutorial videos. For beginners, it is also recommended that they simply open an account with an exchange where DNotes is currently listed which includes Allcoin and Poloniex.
A spokesman from DNotes commented that for digital currency to become truly mainstream the huge gender imbalance must be corrected, as women control more than 50% of consumer purchasing power. He elaborated that DNotes is positioned as a serious digital currency, with a strong commitment to generating trust and support for its stake holders. In a never ending journey to build asset value for their stake holders: Cryptomoms.com is the first of many ambitious web properties planned by the Dnotes team.

New Cryptocurrency Einsteinium Supports Ground Breaking Scientific Research – Funding the Future With The Future of Currency
Dedicated to raising funding for cutting edge scientific research worldwide, The Einsteinium Foundation has just released an unprecedented digital currency: Einsteinium (EMC2). With EMC2 the Foundation aims to finance important world changing scientific research worldwide, with projects receiving monthly donations – determined by a community based voting system. EMC2, similar to Bitcoin, is an emerging scrypt based cryptocurrency with no premine, based on a proof-of-work algorithm.
The Einsteinium Foundation pledged their first financial contribution on the 29th of March to an important scientific research program: Walter Moss, a post-doctoral researcher in the lab of Prof. Joan A. Steitz at Yale University, received 526314.56 EMC2 (approx. $1,000 in USD) for his work researching if viral molecular structures can cause cancer. The Einsteinium Foundation will deliver the funds to Walter Moss via crowd funding site Experiment.com; more information on his important work can be seen at https://experiment.com/projects/can-viral-molecular-structures-cause-cancer. To help Walter Moss reach his funding goal, the Foundation also raised an additional 300 000 EMC2 – approximately $600 USD.
Each month, scientific research programs and science education programs are nominated worldwide by EMC2 users – the EMC2 community then votes online at Einsteinium.org. The Einsteinium Foundation is currently seeking more world changing scientific projects to sponsor: nominations can be submitted at http://einsteinium.org/submit-a-project/ . To be eligible for funding the scientific project must be pushing humanity’s understanding forward and helping us build a better, safer future.
EMC2 automatically donates 2% of every block mined to the Foundation Fund to be used for donations. The mining of Einsteinium is divided into Epochs: each Epoch mines 36000 blocks of coins and is targeted to last approximately 25 days. Every 25 days, at the end of each Epoch, a new ground breaking scientific cause is selected to receive Einsteinium Foundation funding.
Like Bitcoin, Litecoin and Dogecoin, Einsteinium is a distributed peer-2-peer digital currency released without any premine. EMC2 implements the primary innovation of Wormhole Mechanics. To reward long term miners each Wormhole Event occurs randomly during each epoch and is 180 blocks long; with a reward of 2970 EMC2 per block.
With the unprecedented launch of EMC2, The Einsteinium Foundation will continue to offer support to ground breaking scientific projects across the globe. With Einsteinium’s innovation of Wormhole Mechanics, and its unique mission to raise funding for cutting edge scientific research worldwide with every block mined; EMC2 really is “Funding the Future with the Future of Currency”.

The development of a custom coded Devcoin forum and rapid growth in the community of Devcoiners mark Devcoin maturing to its next phase of adoption, and solidifying its already firm position as a cryptocurrency that is built to last.
Devcoin sets itself apart from many other alternative cryptocurrencies with its unique world changing mission: to make the world a better place by rewarding open source development in every field, especially technology, but also including marketing and art. Devcoin is also unique in that the bulk of its block generation reward does not go to miners but to people worldwide involved in open source work.
The Devtome project’s stable of writers has seen massive growth in the past few weeks as word is getting out that writers can get paid for their creative work much faster than through many traditional publication routes. The writers joining the community are successful business owners, established writers and bloggers, and even high school and college students. These new writers are eager to contribute to Devcoin’s growth and development while reaping the rewards that come from publishing their open source content on Devtome. The quality of writing has also seen big improvements as many of the writers who joined earlier have become article administrators and have made it their mission to weed out poor quality work while helping competent writers to further improve their work.
The increase in the number of writers forming the Devtome community, along with the higher standards for content, has added some healthy competition for the shares making up the monthly 180 million Devcoin generation reward. This pool is divided up among an ever increasing pool of writers. The anticipation of higher future value means more writers are choosing to hang onto, rather than immediately sell, their earnings. For those who do want to sell, there are investors who believe they are buying at a bargain. When investors buy and hold Devcoins they are supporting the overall goals of the Devcoin project which include plans to sponsor the development of an open source spaceship.
The Devcoin community now has a new home in Coinzen, a forum custom designed for Devcoin but with potential to also become a home for other alt coin communities. Coinzen has a few custom coded features which give forum posters greater control over their threads, such as the ability to moderate threads they started and add other users to their buddy lists.
In a world where a new alt coin is announced every day and where the majority will fail, Devcoin is one of the few which has stood the test of time. With the DVC/BTC market on Cryptsy launching last month, the massive growth of the Devtome writer community, the creation of the Coinzen forum, and its ongoing unique and world changing mission – Devcoin is the alt coin which just might one day literally go to the moon, through eventually sponsoring the development of an open source spacecraft.

- 10 minutes block target.
- 50 000 DVC per block reward, to ensure there is no deflation this block reward never decreases. 5000 DVC goes to miners (who can merge mine DVC for free when they are mining Bitcoin), and 45 000 DVC goes to the open source developers and projects on the receiver files.
*Past earnings do not guarantee future results when contributing to the Devcoin project. This Press Release is for informational purposes only and should not be taken as investment advice. Please consult with your financial advisor before investing in DVC or any other digital currency.
