About Mintcoin

MintCoin is an innovative, secure and energy efficient pure PoS coin. After an initial phase of 5 weeks as a PoW/PoS hybrid, the coin has been transfered to a pure PoS coin, where the generation of new coins and the maintenance of the network are done through minting instead of mining.

MintCoin also adopt a variable PoS rate, which gives the highest payout at 20% the first year, then decrease 5% per year until the 4th year it reaches annual interest rate of 5%, then it will remain at this rate.

MintCoin will have a total of 70 billion coins.

PoS will start after at least 20 days of holding of the coins in the wallet. With PoS, the coin is more resilient to 51% attack. Most coins will be generated through PoS, thus it is a coin that will save a lot of energy compared to other coins.

A word from the Mintcoin team:

As an investor I've always seen potential in MINT, the PoS and the great name make a promising duo. Now I'm glad to be part of the MintCoin community team. Working on a new web design was a pleasure to do, now I'll be keeping an eye on as many other aspects as possible. Marketing and ensuring a smooth transition to full PoS are two priorities. I look forward to helping this coin grow to it's full potential.

I work in banking and I am doing too many things to list. What matters is that I know what drives people. When I established the team on February 16, I knew I would make it something good, by my! not that good! I even mentioned it during my viva for memoir. The mintcoin team is a testimonial to how far a bunch of motivated people can go. And mintcoin itself is the evidence that people want something fair. Fair to the planet, fair for the long term and fair for a very wide audience.

What is PoS?

PoS: Proof of Stake.

what is the line Stake in wallet?

It is for the PoS blocks. Once a PoS block generated, some of your coins plus the generated interests will be moved to stake, it is like immature for PoW. It will take 50 confirmations to mature, after mature the coins plus interests will be added back to your balance.

what does that mean in the wallet : Minting suspended due to locked wallet?

This says you can not do mining due to wallet encrypted.
you need to unlock the wallet in order to mine (for example for PoS blocks):
mintcoin-qt -server
mintcoind walletpassphrase <unlock_duration_in_seconds> true

Do I have to let my wallet open to get PoS coins?

PoS will be generated after at least 20 days holding of the coins in your wallet. You dont need to keep the wallet open all the time. The coin-days accumulated in your wallet will not be lost. The next time when you open the wallet client, the internal miner will start automatically and if the coin holding period meet certain requirements the pos blocks will be generated based on the coin-days in your wallet.

How often do I have to open the wallet in order to get PoS coins?

See above. You dont need to open wallet all the time, your coin-days accumulated in the wallet will not be lost.
