WTF Is Burstcoin (in 1 minute)
What is Burstcoin?
Burstcoin is a digital crypto-currency based on the blockchain technology that is similar to the more well known, Bitcoin. The primary difference setting Burst apart from all other digital currencies is that it is mined by your hard drive space. Essentially, users download the existing Burst ‘ledger’ and run a program to verify the data over and over to ensure nothing has changed.
Mining Burst on your hard drive allows for much lower electricity costs compared to most other crypto currencies. This not only allows you to save on a bit of money, but it is also much better for the environment.
Burstcoin has actually been around for a while, however it is just recently started to gain more traction as the crypto community as a whole grows bigger. Burst contains all the features you would expect to find with most recent blockchain projects including Smart Contracts, Asset/Token issuance, a built in marketplace and more.
