Elephant Developers Make Ethereum Available to the Masses

Reading Time: 2 minutes by on April 26, 2016 Press Releases

Blockchain platform Elephant’s team has been actively working on making Ethereum’s capabilities and functionality available to the masses for nearly six months. Having created a smart contract in Ethereum network, released native tokens elCoin, and developed an exclusive consensus algorithm, which combines PoS and PoT, the team continued working on a wide range of exclusive tools for finance management.

Back at the project’s launch, number of transactions in Ethereum network has grown several-fold. More recently, over the course of Moscow Bitcoin Conference, Elephant was dubbed the biggest Ethereum-based project. The team managed to attract in excess of 40,000 users, which is definitely a solid foundation for global promotion and development of crypto-technologies.

Holder’s Reward (Proof of Stake)

Every 10 days after the network’s launch, the minimum balance of a wallet that had at least one (credit / debit) transaction in 10 days earns N%. The minimum wallet balance in 10 days means the lowest elcoin amount during the 10-day period. Annual interest will be posted every 10 days during 2550 days after the project’s public launch. The annual interest rate varies depending on the project’s age:

  • annual interest rate for the first 90 days: 50%
  • annual interest rate for the subsequent 90 days: 40%
  • annual interest rate for the subsequent 90 days: 30%
  • annual interest rate for the subsequent 90 days: 20%
  • annual interest rate for the subsequent 2190 days: 10%

Auction (Proof of Transaction)

The auction is launched automatically in 300 days after the project’s public launch, with the drawings held every 100001st transaction. The reward is 200 elcoins. Only the wallets that made the last 10 transactions during the period (from the 99991st to the 100000th transaction) are eligible. The winner is the wallet with the largest amount of debit transaction which, however, cannot be lower than 10 elcoins. If several wallets have equal debit transaction amounts and these amounts are the largest, the 200-elcoin reward will be split among them. If the last 10 transactions do not fulfill the eligibility condition (debit transaction amount of at least 10 elcoins), no one claims the reward and the auction countdown starts anew.
