What is Nimiq? Nimiq is a browser-based Blockchain designed for simplicity. Nimiq’s reason for existence is to bring the benefits ofShow more [+] blockchain technology to the mainstream. To achieve that purpose Nimiq has been built from the ground up to address and break the barriers to entry that inhibit the mainstream adoption of blockchain technologies. Nimiq is encompassed by a strong philanthropic mindset, it will always remain open-source and community-driven.
The project combines state-of-the-art blockchain research and web technology.
Nano clients synchronize in seconds. Nimiq is browser-based and installation-free.
NIM is the token of the Nimiq Mainnet Blockchain. A total of 2.52 billion NIM were created in the Genesis Block during the Launch of the Mainnet. The minimum unit of NIM is called a satoshi and 100,000 satoshis equal 1 NIM. After the Launch of the Mainnet, NIM are rewarded to miners.
Been mining with browser on PhilPool for a few hours now. My mining rate is really slow, like 0.2/block, but I still havent seen any Nimiq in my wallet. I've seen that many blocks have been completed, so there should be something there...
One simple and effective thing that will help a lot to promote Nimiq is creating its own browser. I think this is a natural development for the project - a browser for Nimiq is an equivalent of a wallet for other coins.
And it will definitely create some buzz both in crypto world and outside and will make the coin much better recognizable.
Also it opens an opportunity for add-ons which can be built into the browser to create Nimiq infrastructure/ecosystem.
Imagine if you as a website owner can accept payments simply telling your users to use a specific browser. Tips, paywalls, e-commerce, money transfers as easy as it can be.
I think it is a great idea, developers should consider.
