|CryptoCoin.com: Blakecoin (BLC)
Blakecoin (BLC) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Bitcoin in October 2013. It was the first cryptocoin project to employ BLAKE-256 (a candidate for the US National Institute of Standards and Technology hash function competition to become the new SHA-3 standard) as its hashing algorithm. BLAKE-256 is reportedly faster than the SHA-256 algorithm used by Bitcoin. It also employs a custom asymmetrical difficulty re-target algorithm. The reward for mining Blakecoin is set to 25 blakecoins plus inflation which is calculated as square root of (difficulty * block height). Original announcement.
