Introduction to Terracoin, masternodes and Terracoin Services

  1. What is Terracoin?
    • Terracoin is a digital currency comparable to Bitcoin
    • In digital currencies, coins can be transferred securely and irreversible from one digital wallet to annother wallet
    • There is no bank or other central authory involved in the transfer of coins. Therefore payments can not be stopped and coins can not be frozen.
    • Terracoin can be transferred anonymously. Payments are confirmed to the recipient within 1 minute. With Bitcoin, payments can be traced and it takes 30 minutes to confirm a payment.
    • The Bitcoin project has no funding. With Terracoin, 10% of the coins are directed to development and marketing. Currently 1140 masternode owners vote, to which project the funds should go each month. You see, the distribution of the funds is decentralized, so it can not be taken down.
