MERIT - A cryptocurrency focused on growth and ease-of-use.

Merit aims to be the world’s friendliest digital currency, making it effortless to pay friends, buy goods, and manage your wealth.

Check out the 45-second Merit explainer video!

Merit is a new cryptocurrency that is purpose-built to be used daily by technical and non-technical users alike. Merit believes that a truly human-centered cryptocurrency must be built on three pillars: safety, simplicity, and community. Each of Merit’s innovative features is driven by one of these core principles.

What makes Merit different? Growth mining (through Proof-Of-Growth), a focus on community stewardship, and a much simpler user experience. Because Merit is invite-only, the blockchain keeps track of how impactful each member has been in growing the community.  In addition to rewarding classic security miners, Merit rewards users who increase the network’s reach, use, and diversity.  We believe that adoption is key to the longevity, viability, and security of any cryptocurrency, and made growth a core design-principle of Merit.  


Features

Growth Mining:
Merit’s innovative approach to Proof-of-Growth makes mining a cryptocurrency drastically more approachable to the broader population.  Growth Mining rewards users based on their impact in growing the Merit community.  These rewards help democratize the distribution of Merit and reward activities that are just as valuable to the security and longevity of Merit as traditional security mining.

Cuckoo Cycle POW:
Merit splits block rewards 50/50 between classic PoW security mining and PoG growth mining.  Merit's PoW algorithm is the memory-bound, graph-theoretic, Cuckoo Cycle created by John Tromp.  The memory-bound approach has a number of interesting advantages, such as lower power-consumption, heat-dissipation, and deep ASIC-resistance.

Aliases:
Merit’s invite-dynamics allow users to create an alias that is stored on the blockchain.  Instead of sending to 34-character hexadecimal addresses, you can send Merit to @adil.  It’s as easy to send Merit as it is to send a DM.  

Escrow:
The robust MeritLink protocol allows users to send Merit via SMS or email to users who do not even have a Merit Wallet yet.  If the recipient doesn’t have a wallet, the MRT is stored in escrow on the blockchain for them to access once they are a member of the community.  Further, MeritMoney transactions can have expiration dates and an optional password to make them even more secure. This gives users the peace-of-mind of knowing that they send their Merit to the right person and that only that person will be able to unlock the money. And it is easily re-claimed when the expiration date is reached.

One-Click Mining:
Security mining shouldn’t be restricted to technically advanced users.  We built one-click mining directly into our lightwallets so that anyone who joins Merit can help secure the network.  The Merit desktop lightwallet even automatically detects the GPUs on your machine and lets you select which ones to mine with.

Invites:
Merit is an invite-only network, which drives security and stewardship advantages.  This invite-only dynamic enforces referential integrity for Proof-of-Growth, and also helps to make Merit indestructible.  Merit does this without promoting spammy behavior because Merit Invite Tokens are scarce, so users are best served by being thoughtful about who they bring into the network.  Get An Invite

Cancellable Transactions:
The robust MeritMoney protocol also solves one of the most widespread problems in the history of commerce: human error. Accidentally send the wrong amount of Merit to someone?  Or accidentally key in the wrong address? These are everyday occurrences for most of us and, and are handled elegantly with Merit.  Merit’s escrow links can be cancelled up until the point where the transaction has been accepted by the recipient.

Indestructible:
You cannot burn or destroy Merit by sending it to an address that does not belong to another user.  Because Proof-of-Growth Aliases, and Invite Tokens, an address must be beaconed to the network and must receive an invite token before becoming fully valid.  This empowers peers on the network to refuse any transaction that is sent to an address that does not actually belong to someone.

Vaults:
Merit vaults add multiple layers of protection without sacrificing decentralization or forcing a user to understand and use cold storage.  Vaults utilize purpose-specific keys, whitelists and rate-limiting to help keep your MRT safe.  These features are enforced at the protocol-level, not by a central party.  Soon, Vaults will even include decentralized key recovery through Merit’s upcoming Guardian feature.


Further advantages and features can be found on the Why Merit section of the website.

Invite/Growth Rewards re-distribution Policy


Incoming Growth Rewards to @icemining wallet, are evenly distributed to the miners automatically.

Regarding invite distribution, we have decided to keep 10% of them for new miners. Invites can be requested from @icemining account's to help build the icemining network and in turn gain more growth rewards which will then be distributed to the miners.  We will also use these invites for random giveaways and/or promotions on the pool once we have resources to do so.

The remaining 90% will be dispersed to miners in the following way:
70% of the remaining invites will be distributed on a weekly basis to miners who have been active throughout that week, and proportional to the amount of shares they have submitted to the pool.
30% of the remaining invites will be equally distributed on a weekly basis across all miners who were active throughout that week respectively.

We have decided that if we were to distribute invites based solely on shares submitted, the largest miners would receive most of the invites, but in order to ensure smaller miners can also receive invites each week - we will distribute these evenly.

Merit is very nice to be with. The invite system can sound like ponzi, but it has good fundamentals to keep community under control and people helping each other. Their software is awesome and proof of growth is very engaging to get. I'd suggest to try it out before jumping to conclusions as it happened on reddit. If you want you can use my alias https://wallet.merit.me/?invite=boozee, PM me to get any help and invites for your friend to try it too. Have a nice, meritful day BCT!

posting in first page of historically epic thread -  reserved

Some mining info:


official miner
https://github.com/meritlabs/merit-miner/releases
A bit buggy but they are working on it


unoffical miner
https://github.com/zjazz/zjazz_cuda_miner/releases
This is the "optimized" miner allows you to leverage your CPU. I strongly recommend you use the readme and familiarize yourself with the various parameters.


Pools:
http://pool.merit.me
http://parachute.merit.me
http://icemining.ca  (I've been running here for 7+ days stable 0 downtime)


A lot of miners are using this loop:
(pool.merit.me and parachute.merit.me only)
Code:
:loop
start merit.exe --url stratum+tcp://pool.merit.me:3333 --address xxxxxx --gpu 0 --cores 0
timeout /t 1800
taskkill /f /im merit.exe
goto loop


Or for Yimp Pools you can't use the "alias" you must use the full length address. Here is an example of a bat with the optimized miner running on Yimp, with the "fastest" parameter.
Code:
zjazz.exe -a cuckoo -o stratum+tcp://eu.icemining.ca:3333  -u MUkd3GdqNCCsaHmCSAeNRnAaAGi7M4v7Xo -p c=MERIT -g 2





A few notes:
No AMD, for now. If your mining rigs have slightly upgraded CPU's such as an i3 or higher, you'll get the best bang for your buck. Big rigs 6+ card systems don't do as well as smaller ones.

This project truly has one of the best teams in this overcrowded space
of projects trying to get  rich quick and scam their users by not truly
offering anything of value.  They are just sounds in an echo chamber.

Merit and this team is truly a breath of fresh air.  But please, DO NOT
take my word for it.  Join the community, engage with the members
on discord and simply just use Merit and its software (Market, mobile
wallets, desktop wallet with one-click mining, etc) and see for yourself.

If you have been in this space long enough, you can easily see where this
project shines and does things differently.  And even if you’re new to this
whole crypto thing, even better, it was designed with you in mind!



✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅

If you need an invite, use code: “Tommy” or the link below:

https://wallet.merit.me/?invite=tommy


I will accept you ONLY if you PM me your alias or wallet address, for verification.

I airdrop MRT and invites to active community members. 2️⃣0️⃣ invites available
