Company Description

Ethereum is a blockchain-based computing platform and operating system whose core innovation is enabling smart contracts. Ethereum's smart contract functionality, and versatile scripting language, have made it the most popular network for creating decentralized applications. What makes Ethereum different from Bitcoin is that its primary purpose is to serve as a general purpose blockchain for creating DApps, and not as a payment network. Ethereum was created by Vitalik Buterin. It was launched in July 2015 and has become one of the most important blockchain platforms in the industry. Ether is the native currency of the Ethereum blockchain and can can be used as a transfer of value, as well as a form of compensation for mining. The Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) executes scripts using a network of public nodes. "Gas" is used as an internal transaction pricing mechanism that decides how resources are used on the network.


FairCoin is based on an innovative blockchain technology, which has been changed in July 2017 from a 'Proof-of-Stake' protocol to a 'Proof-of-Cooperation' (PoC) mechanism. Our currency not only requires less energy and enables faster transactions, but also introduces a certain level of trust and democratic values even on the technical level. Here you find the White Paper and more information about PoC and our FairChains project.

With the support of FairCoop, FairCoin implements fair value exchange on a global level. Our innovative Proof-of-Cooperation (PoC) blockchain mechanism is the unique consensus algorithm developed for FairCoin. It requires much less energy than other blockchains but also enables faster transactions. We are proud that FairCoin now is the the most ecological and resilient cryptocurrency.
