Farewell to Arscoin

Posted on April 8, 2014


Ars Technica have a fascinating debrief on their deliberately-experimental foray into setting up their own altcoin, including a breakdown of blocks, miners, transactions and running costs.

It’s this kind of ‘documentation’ that shows how powerful open source economics can be – the old hacker approach of playing, learning and sharing, all in order to figure out new, better ways of doing stuff together.

Always worth keeping in mind.
