Please go to the Breakout Chain Thread HereBrief Backstory
The thread below is the thread for a coin called "Brocoin" commissioned by "Breakout Coin", a coin company. Brocoin was never implemented, due to lack of funds. The original developer , Jay Berg, was a hired consultant, and we were not able to keep him full-time. Jay moved on to a new exciting project, Protoblock.com.
The Breakout Coin project hired a new developer, James Stroud, who completed a ground breaking coin, called "Breakout Chain", with help from, and features inspired by Jay's "Bergstake". Breakout Chain not only has a innovative staking mechanism, but is also a Proof-of-Work chain with many novel existing and planned features. Breakout Chain's features are designed to complement Breakout Coin's business model of seeding mass adoption by providing promotional funds to promising businesses.

Revolutionizing Cryptocurrency and Online Gaming
Breakout Coin (BRO) puts the power in usersí hands, enabling ìperson-to-personî transactions without middlemen such as banks or credit cards. There is no five day processing wait, your account canít be frozen, and the digital coins can be sent virtually instantly with zero or low fees to Argentina, China, or wherever you want. Sending a BRO is simple and just like sending an email. BRO is Proof-of-Bergstake (PoB). PoB is a new and innovative solution to eliminate energy waste prevalent with current PoW mining.Proof-of-Bergstake
There will be a one-to-one ratio of Bergstake for all ìvirginî coins. This will mark the first time a real distributed consensus has been reached via Proof-of-Stake, thanks to Bergstake.ìPerpetual Virtual Mining Rigî
The more Bergstake you possess, the better your chances of signing the block and earning the block reward. Odds of earning the block reward for each block is tied to the proportion of Bergstake.
Total Supply ~ 19.5M BRO
Block Time Target: 3 minutes
PoB Block Reward: 1 million coins annually ~5.71 BRO block reward
Proof-of-Bergstake to Solve Known Problems
Bergstake represents the right to sign blocks in cryptocurrency blockchains. For keeping the network safe, block signers receive reward, which can be transaction fees and/or new coins. Bergstake is different from classic coin-stake ñ it lasts forever and itís not transferable. The concept is a modified ìProof-of-Skillî, first described in the Satoshi Fantasy whitepaper by Jay Berg. While each coin is crafted, whether itís in the pre-mine giveaway or Proof-of-Work stage, the holder of those new coins automatically receives an equivalent amount of Bergstake. Even if the new coins are transferred away, the Bergstake remains. All Bergstake are recorded in the blockchain and owners maintain their private keys.
Proof-of-Bergstake is better understood as an alternative distributed consensus mechanism to the Bitcoin Proof-of-Work mining process. Bergstake solves known issues found in Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchains. Bergstake blockchains also have knowledge of alternative forks. This enables someone to present a ìProof-of-Double-Miningî which will destroy the Bergstake as well as its potential block reward. The threat of losing Bergstake and recent virgin coins is incentive to mine only the ìrealî blockchain. This core feature neutralizes the ìnothing-at-stakeî weakness found in PoS blockchains.
The algorithm that selects the next block-signer can be gamed in other PoS blockchains. The strategy is known as ìstake-grindingî or ìcostless simulationî, and it entails a nefarious type of ìminingî of block data intended just to generate a hash, which allows the signing of the next block. Since Bergstake is recognized in advance, a block-signer assignment algorithm that moderates grinding can be employed. A technique used frequently involves the use of the hash of two prior signers in order to select another signer; another technique entails the selection of N signers based on a pseudo-random number and a current signer.

Your final score is the sum of your Teamís Playersí points at the end of the game period.
The cryptocurrency that changed the most in its group and in your anticipated direction earns five points; the second most earns three points, and the third earns two points. You will have picked three cryptos up and three down in each of five groups. †A perfect score would be (5+3+2) x 2 * 5 = 100 points. The lowest number of points would be zero. The game prize will †be shared across the Top 10 gamers.
The monitored cryptocurrency stats are equivalent to player stats in Fantasy Sports. To assure timeliness and transparency, data will be updated every 5 minutes and consistent with most coinmarketcap.com conventions.
