Coino, a new crypto-currency hosted by a marketing agency in Germany, has entered the payments market.
It seems Coino is well positioned to become a dominant Internet currency. The currency is available to anyone in the world and is not yet tied to any particular exchange. In terms of transaction speed, Coino offers 25 seconds block time and two confirmations, which rivals any other cryptocurrency in the world today. Complete technical specifications on the currency can be found here.
Ultimately, value is what drives an Internet currency either to the top of the pile or to the slagheap of history. Coino’s developers understand this and have made a robust investment in long-term, dedicated support. The platform claims its goal is to see Coino reach a highly competitive value on the cryptocurrency exchanges as quickly as possible.
The democratic, decentralized nature of Internet currencies has made them enormously popular in tech circles, but the general public is beginning to take an interest as well. Coino looks to ride this second wave of adoption. Those interested in tracking developments with Coino can follow the cryptocurrency on Facebook and Twitter.
