The first decentralized cryptocurrency ever to be created as a gift for someone’s birthday. At 1457344680 unix time is my girlfriend’s 25th birthday (her name is Neva if that isn’t obvious) and since she is abroad at the moment I figured this is the best gift I can give her remotely. Who wouldn’t want a global decentralized peer to peer network cryptocurrency platform named after them as a birthday gift, right? Don’t worry, I will also give her a less geeky gift when she comes back Smiley
Code: const char* pszTimestamp = “Happy 25th birthday Neva!!!”; genesis.nTime = 1457344680;
The coin was successfully launched on March 7th, 9:58AM (GMT) and is available for mining (for the next 14years) and staking since day one.
Gender: F Meaning of Neva: “white snow” Origin of Neva: Spanish
What is the purpose of this coin?
0% PoS, fixed block rewards ensure predictable supply increase.
Unlike most of PoW/PoS Hybrids, this one will have a very long PoW phase. The network will stop accepting PoW blocks in approximately 14 years. The goal is to gain a mining chance, even to people that stumble upon it years later in the future.
Gain some interest from the female half of the population (starting with Neva). Lets be honest the cryptocurrency community is still a sausage fest Smiley
Blake2s mining algorithm.
Blake2s PoS block hashing - friendly to low end hardware. Raspberry-Pi nodes…etc.
Slow emmision. The PoW and PoS reward is 5 NEVAs. The reward will halve for both at block height 2628000. That is approximately 7 years until the first halving. After the second halving at block height 5256000 the PoW phase will be over, continued only by PoS with 1.25 NEVA reward, which will halve again in 2628000 blocks…etc.
The low reward and long PoW phase is meant to avoid the insta-mine by handful of people.
