A Week-Old Cryptocurrency Wants to Capture the Wasted Energy of Bitcoin’s Algorithm


Great article :slight_smile: thank you for the link… Wonder if there is a way to alter the primecoin code so that it can get the really big digit prime numbers…hmmm now u got me thinking :stuck_out_tongue:

Good publicity, can’t complain about that!

I think the client could probably be altered to find incredibly long primes. The only problem is it could be weeks, months, or even years until a block is solved using consumer CPUs :o
