How to buy Reddcoin

Recommended Posts

In this tutorial we will demonstrate how to buy Reddcoin using shapeshift.


What is Reddcoin?

Reddcoin is the social currency that enriches people’s social lives and makes digital currency easy for the general public. Reddcoin achieves this by integrating a digital currency platform seamlessly with all major social networks to make the process of sending and receiving money fun and rewarding for everyone.


What is PoSV?

Proof of Stake Velocity (PoSV) is proposed as an alternative to Proof of Work (PoW) and Proof of Stake (PoS) to secure the peer-to-peer network and confirm transactions of Reddcoin. PoSV is designed to encourage both ownership (Stake) and activity (Velocity) which directly correspond to the two main functions of Reddcoin as a real currency: store of value and medium of exchange


In its most basic form, we can think of PoSV simply as compounding interest. It was designed to offer 5 - 6% interest, compounding every time you stake (produce new coins).
