Coin Summary

Primecoin is an open source P2P cryptocoin which uses finding chains of prime numbers (Cunningham chains) as a proof-of-work system. Primecoin was developed by Sunny King, the developer of PPCoin (Peercoin). Primecoin uses SHA-256 encryption, is widely adopted at many exchanges and some stores, and can be mined using CPUs. A GPU miner is in the works. At the moment, it has claimed sixteen world records for finding Cunningham chains. A Cunningham chain record book is maintained here. This coin is accepted on multiple exchanges and it looks as if it has a bright future.
