Nimiq was the first cryptocurrency that could be mined with just one click in a web browser. Now, Nimiq plans to migrate from Proof-of-Work to Proof-of-Stake to significantly improve the scalability of the network. Albatross, Nimiq’s PoS consensus algorithm, is currently being tested and capable of performing close to the theoretical maximum for a single chain.
Nimiq wants the benefits of staking NIM to be open to all, tech-savvy and regular users alike. In time for the switch to PoS, a user friendly interface will allow everyone to participate directly from their browser and effectively earn NIM while helping the network.
Empower and incentivize every owner of NIM to contribute to the network and profit from it.
