Viacoin is an open source crypto-currency created in 2014, derived from the Bitcoin protocol that supports embedded consensus with an extended OP_RETURN of 120 byte. Viacoin features Scrypt Merged mining, also called Auxiliary proof of work or AuxPoW, and 25x faster transactions than Bitcoin. Viacoin mining reward halving takes place every 6 months and has a total supply of 23,000,000 coins. The inflation rate of Viacoin is low due to minimal mining reward. As the block reward of Viacoin is low, miners are given incentive to mine Viacoin through Merged mining (AuxPoW).
