Description of the project

⠀Minima is:

  • A cooperative distributed PoW network without miners, immune to the attributes of a centralized, miner-centric paid system.
  • Fully decentralized cryptosystem of collaborating users, without any centralized points of failure, capable of supporting the largest network of full nodes that have ever been assembled;
  • Compact blockchain capable of running on a smartphone.
  • Stable, open, global and censorship resistant P2P network with an embedded base-level blockchain for secure payments, token processing and contracts.
  • Scalable, programmable, without any storage required, quantum-safe, evidence-based, Tx-PoW cascading chain.

Phases of the Testnet

⠀At this stage, the following phases are known:

  • July 28 - Stimulating Testnet Launch;
  • 2nd quarter 2022 - launch of the main network.


⠀1 Minima token for Node Running will be credited daily in the IncentiveCash application. Additional tokens can be obtained for finding different bugs.
