Hard Drive Mining

Unlike other cryptocurrency, Burstcoin (also called Burst) is a digital cryptocurrency and payment system based on the blockchain technology that are mined using an algorithm called proof-of-capacity (PoC) in which miners use computer storage instead of the more common energy-expensive method proof-of-work (PoW) which involves permanent computational operations. The main difference between Proof of Work and Burst’s Proof of Capacity is that instead of needing ever more expensive, power hungry processors and graphic cards, it uses inexpensive, low-power hard drives. Plus, Proof of Capacity is inherently more secure, and trimmed versions of the blockchain are easier and more secure as well. The energy requirement for Burstcoin mining is minimal compared to most other cryptocurrencies, making Burstcoin one of the most energy efficient within the field of proof-based cryptocurrencies.
