We all know that currently there are a lot of Scrypt coins, whether Scrypt-salsa, or Scrypt-jane. It almost seems no one is paying attention to the "foundation" SHA256 coin anymore. (Of course, except Bitcoin itself)
People may say that's because the raising of ASICs, any new SHA256 coin, which doesn't not have enough networking hashrate, can be easily 51%ed. Thanks to the invention of Proof of Stake, that it not true anymore.Bountycoin brings popular cryptocoin techinques to the SHA256 world.Features:

$$$ Bounties $$$
A good coin is a coin that everyone helps, either mine/use it, or help it's development. BountyCoin has 0.5% premine, which seems "extraterrestrial" in a currently "0 premined" world. But this will be used as the following bounties (which are a lot!), to encourage and reward who helps BountyCoin's development.
Whoever wishes to claim these bounties, please reply to this post and PM me with your result and BountyCoin address. The coin will be send after result checked out.
