Process of creating Ontology coin
Unlike cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and Ethereum which are released through the mining process using power supply and internet using the proof-of-work consensus, for Ontology coin, that is not the case. Instead, Ontology coin was created to become proof of stake coin. During its launch part of the 1,000,000,000 ontology coins were distributed to several ontology community members as well as partners and cofounders while unknown remaining amount will be distributed later to its community member. Unlike in other crypto staking, where the same coin is being rewarded to users for using them to secure the network, for Ontology, that is not the case. There are two coins in ontology ecosystem, the Ontology coin and the ontology Gas coin. Ontology coin is the native coin of ontology network and is the one that is used to secure the ontology network while Ontology Gas coin is the utility coin for ontology network thus is used to pay for service offered by Ontology network. Therefore, Users can stake their ontology coin as solo staker or they can decide to lock them in a node thus they will be used to secure the ontology network as well as to validate transactions taking place at the Ontology blockchain network thus in return they receive reward in form of ontology Gas coin being generated or the one being used to pay for transaction cost . The more your staking the the reward you will receive. To become a staker, you need to have atleast 500 Ontology coin in your staking wallet while to become a node you need to have a 24 hour internet connection as well as a minimum of 200,000 ontology coins.
