The Digital Currency with BAWs

Bawbeecoin is a digital currency based on Bitcoin and inspired by the 2014 Scottish Independence Referendum and it's currency woes.

Get Some BAWs

BAW's are generated by 'mining' - the process of validating and securing transactions across the Bawbeecoin network and being rewarded with Bawbeecoins. Mining requires a reasonable amount of technical knowledge but if you know what you are doing Bawbeecoins can be mined in exactly the same way as Litecoin. Here is the basic specification for miners:

  • Scrypt Algorithm
  • Limited supply - a tight fisted 2,100,000 coins only
  • Reward: 2 BAWs / Block
  • Block generation: 2 minutes
  • Halves: Every 2 years
  • Difficulty re-target: Each Block (using KGW)

Is This for Real?

BAW's, BAWBags and Bawbees, is this some kind of a joke? Bawbeecoin is simply an experiment to demonstrate the ease by which a new open source, fair and secure financial system can be created and that money no longer needs to be controlled and manipulated by politics and vested interests.

Bawbeecoin is real - the software, the currency and the infrastructure are real. BAW's, much like regular fiat currency, has value so long as people have faith in it.

If you are skeptical about Bawbeecoin then please try the original Bitcoin or an established alternative like Litecoin.
