Block Rewards

Our block reward model uses an innovative approach - block rewards starts small but increases with time.

At the beginning, every block-chain has a small number of transactions per day and the block data is still a small file, but with time the network will grow and the data size will go up. The mining effort will be bigger and more miners will be needed to keep it running sound and safe.

Conceal has a very unique block reward scheme that increases to a max block reward, instead of decreasing as in most other PoW coins. With this simple and logical approach we avoided the unfair enrichment of early miners during the initial stages of the project where mining difficulty is low and successfully reached one of the lowest coin emission curves throughout the crypto space without affecting mining profit. Conceal.Network miners get 100% of the PoW mining fees.

To fairly reward the mining effort we will start with 5 CCX per block and increase it by 0.25 CCX every month until we reach 15 CCX per block (max reward in 3 1/2 years time).

Custom PoW Algorithm - Cryptonight Conceal

Miners are so important to us that we invested a considerable amount of time and resources developing the best mining algo possible — Cryptonight Conceal (CN Conceal).

CN Conceal is a variant of the original Cryptonight mining algorithm and is designed to achieve maximum PoW hash function for egalitarian CPU & GPU mining and ASIC/FPGA resistance. Conceal is the most energy efficient of the FPGA-Resistant algos. It uses a scratchpad of 2MB with Floating Point Math (FPM) that makes programmed FPGAs inefficient. The FPGAs don’t have any advantage over high-end GPUs. Another main advantage of CN Conceal is the performance efficiency across multiple generations of GPUs. It is extremely efficient on all GCN architectures from multiple cards across the last 8 years. All these qualities allow CN Conceal to be one of the most decentralized mining algos in the entire crypto space.
