Block generation through proof-of-burn. Even a Raspberry Pi can mine competitively, fast hardware offers no advantage.

Slimcoin is sufficiently different as to prompt conjecture that is was created by a long-standing member of the “cryptoscenti”. The Dcrypt hashing algorithm uses SHA2-256 as the main hashing algo but in such a way that makes it extremely ASIC/FPGA resistant. Built upon Bitcoin and Peercoin but unique in the fact that it is more energy-efficient, as both proof-of-burn and proof-of-stake blocks require minimal energy consumption. Proof-of-burn is made to be the energy efficient counterpart to proof-of-work with the added benefit of a much easier set-up and maintenance. Proof-of-burn eliminates the need for powerful hardware thus eliding the need for an ASIC implementation, making Slimcoin even more ASIC-proof.

The codebase has recently been updated to use later version of the Peercoin code.
