Smartcash: What Is It and How to Mine It?
With the emergence of new cryptocurrencies, it is interesting to investigate other digital coins apart from Bitcoin. For example, SmartCash is becoming a popular digital currency with a reliable concept and a promising future. Let’s look into what is it and how to get some!
What is Smartcash?
SmartCash is a digital currency created by the same-name company. The coin is relatively new: it was released in July 2017 and by May 2018, the total supply is more than 1,5 billion. SmartCash is driven by the community. It powers and governs it which means that funds are focused on community projects and aims.
Why investing in Smartcash?
SmartCash looks promising: it is user friendly, supported by a decentralized helpful community.
The company which has launched this cryptocurrency has a SmartHive team which is responsible for making sure the coin grows ad develops, while stabilization of the price is ensured by the special SmartRewards mechanism. The mechanism watches SmartCash wallets which hold more than 1000 coins and pays them for each holding period which equals 30 days.
What is attracting investors a lot in SMART is that the community takes the first place which helps to avoid community dispute issues. With the highest priority put on the platform and its community rather than just on making money, SmartCash’ self-organization model may bring the great future for the coin.
Overall, the coin appears to be worth investing into, and worth trying to mine. Here is how you can do it.
