pNut, a small coin for small people.

Live stats: -- rebuilding, not available yet --

wut ?

pNut is one of the rares coin based on Primecoin (XPM). The XPM particularity is to have a no hashcash Proof-of-work system.
You don't mine this coin by hashes, but through a scientist algorithm about resolving Cunningham chains. The mining is from your CPU.
At the moment no ASIC/GPU/ect can mine pNut.

nPut is for small peoples !

You can mine it with your desktop, from a VPS, or a laptop, ... and still compete.
Of course you produce more, if your CPU is powerful, or if you have many VPS running.

For more detail about the pNut algorithm, please read the magnificent Primecoin paper.

The coin is premined about 1000 on block 1, just for the work I did and I will do. The mining start right now from block 2 !

pNut is wonderful,
