We are in need of head developer to co-operate with for a TBA altcoin. Before proceeding there are many questions to be answered privately or publicly here, the best answer(s) are tipped.

My first question is, are there people willing to implement and support a variant of Primecoin for compensation paid in BTC (or partially the new coin, if you wish)? If it is not clear up to this point, simple copy-paste will not suffice.

Second, is it difficult to add a mixture of scrypt PoS and PoW to such a variant? I'm not very educated in PoS but am imagining it could be used to [benevolently] protect the issuer's interest as it will necessarily control a large share of the coinbase.

Scrypt is a proof of work algorithm. So, if you use scrypt, you're not using the Cunningham chain that are associated with primecoin. Neither of which is proof of stake (that's a comleely different beast)

Back to the drawing board?

Scrypt is a proof of work algorithm.
Pardon my vague use of terms, the intent was to clarify whether a proof of stake can be combined with the Cunningham proof of work algorithm in a single coin.
