Meet Photon (PHO) - Photon is a unique coin - some key features include:
The most exciting uses for Photon are in-game transactions and the noteworthy in-game mining capability which happens simultaneously while you play. These features make PHO unique.
To see the in-game transactions in operation see our feature game Counter Strike - Global Offensive (CS:GO) mod - see full details below.
In the future you will also see Photon implemented in the BlakeZone: a Post-Apocalyptic Survival MMOFPS game, that is currently in beta testing. BlakeZone is set up within the Blake Community. It is a non-fiat based game as BlakeZone uses cryptographic coins only.
Photon was created with the fast and light Blake-256 algorithm.
Blake-256 (optimized) is faster than Scrypt, SHA-256D and Keccak.
The algorithm was written as a candidate for SHA-3, based on round one candidate code from the Sphlib 2.1 library and reduced the round function to 8 rounds.
The family of coins merge mined simultaneously are PHO, Blakecoin, BlakeBitcoin, Electron, UniversalMolecule and Lithium.
Managing transactions and issuing of coins are carried by the network and with very low, stable fees.
The fees are related to the size of transaction in KB (data size) and most small transactions are free and even on a bigger transaction fees are a small fraction of the overall amount.
Much like Satoshi Nakamoto has maintained his anonymity, developers Cinnamon_Carter and BlueDragon747, although deeply dedicated to supporting Photon, have chosen to maintain their anonymity and privacy, as well. So much so, in the wake of the wave of suspicious actors now permeating crypto, they have defended their right to avoid the spotlight and focus on what they enjoy most: developing wonderful technologies and releasing them to the world.
Continues on next slide...
This lack of promotion led some to question whether or not Photon was dead. It most certainly was not, as both developers have actively supported Photon quietly for years, which became abundantly clear as a community of Photon advocates began to form in December 2017. It can be said a rediscovery phase is now well under-way as the community grows in response to the impressive features of Photon that are once again coming to light.
