I found this video a while ago thought I would share it here.

Truly amazing..... and I am not a lawyer but I cannot find fault with anything said here

White Paper  


    Photon is a Cryptocurrency using the Blake 256 Algorithm.  It is a new project designed to function well now and with future technology in mind.  Photon is the second coin to use this unique design (modeled after Blake Coin) and may be mergemined in a pool with Blake Coin or other Blake 256 coins in the future.
    
    Currently almost every Cryptocurrency that exists cannot be merge mined in the same way Namecoin and others are with Bitcoin.  Coin developers are working against each other instead of together right now. Photon is an attempt to change that.  If you are digging in a mine for gold you would not leave silver, tin or other things of value around; you would take them all.
    
    This is why Photon was created with the fast & light Blake 256 algorithm.  This is the future.  Scrypt coins cannot be merge mined. Most Sha-256D coins cannot be either.  I could not have completed this project without the input of Bluedragon747, the creator of Blake Coin. Many thanks.
    
    Photon can be mined by most people with a CPU or GPU.  Below is information on how to mine Photon with some FPGA boards (ASIC's for Bitcoin cannot be used to mine photon.)
    
    Unlike Scrypt-1024 and other variations it is possible to mine Photon with ASIC technology designed to solve Blake 256
    although none currently exist or are in development to my knowledge. The memory limitations of making ASIC's for
    Scrypt 1024 are not a problem with this 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.

    
    

   
    Advantages
    
    Design
     simplicity of the algorithm
     interface for hashing with a salt
    
    Performance
     fast in both software and hardware
     parallelism and throughput/area trade-off for hardware implementation
     simple speed/confidence trade-off with the tunable number of rounds
    
    Security
     based on an intensively analyzed component (ChaCha)
     resistant to generic second-preimage attacks
     resistant to side-channel attacks
     resistant to length-extension
    
    Why Photon using the Blake-256 algorithm beats others in the long run
    
     The Blake-256 algorithm hash rate is just under 3x faster on the GPU and just over 2x on the FPGA compared with Bitcoin
     The reward for mining Photon does Not decrease over time, instead it increases with block height and difficulty
     There are no restrictions on any platform as Photon does not include artificial *Security* or *Resistance* that reduce mining hash rate and power efficiency
      
    
   
    SPECIFICATIONS
    
     Coin Type: Blake-256
     Block Reward: 32768  + inflation (square root of (difficulty * block height))
     No reduction of block reward
     Cap in place to reduce difficulty jumps upward.
     Block Target Time: 3 minutes
     Retarget: 20 blocks
     Total Coins: 90,000,000,000 (Yes, 90 Billion coins --- Photons are plentiful in the universe)
     Block Maturity: 120

     Remember, this is experimental software. It has been tested, but like all new technology, tests may not reveal everything.  Photon was designed to be innovative and cutting edge today and help lead new trends in Cryptocurrency.
    
    Photon was built and tested by @Cinnamon_Carter with vital input from BlueDragon747 creator of BlakeCoin and the 'Father' of this project !
    
    Photon is not part of any other similar projects that may be in development by others using the Blake-256 algorithm design by BlueDragon747.
