Feathercoin's goal is to allow users to make P2P payments that are settled and confirmed quickly.
Feathercoin is a PoW coin with a fast block processing time. The project was developed with the goal of creating a user friendly coin with fast transaction times and low fees. The Feathercoin network features Automatic Checkpointing (ACP), which is used to prevent 51% attacks. ACP creates a new checkpoint every 5 blocks, protecting the history of the Feathercoin blockchain.
