About Zetacoin - Our History, Development, Vision & Mission

  • Zetacoin (ZET) was introduced as a truly innovative cryptocurrency, based on Bitcoin and designed to combine transaction speed and ease-of-use
  • Zetacoin is a transparent, open-source network, in operation since August 3, 2013 and created by a team of anonymous developers
  • The original “Legacy Zetacoin” blockchain was based on SHA256 and featured ultra-fast block times, resulting in significant inefficiencies. The project was abandoned in 2018 with a small group of enthusiasts and hobbyists maintaining it.
  • In late 2021, a team lead by EWMCI embarked on a long-awaited transformation of Zetacoin, with successful transition to a Scrypt-based, hybrid Proof-of-Work (PoW) and Proof-of-Stake (PoS) code that addresses the inefficiencies of the original chain.
  • The original maximum supply limit of 160 million Zetacoins was reached some time ago, with ongoing SHA256 mining resulting in an oversupply of coins (currently >175 million). The new codebase addresses this important issue by drastically reducing new annual coin supply to <50,000 ZET
  • Since 2018, Zetacoin is a member of the EWMCI Crypto Ecosystem – A global cryptocurrency platform that focuses on development, infrastructure, and use cases for participating core projects (more info at ewmci.info )
  • Zetacoin is also included in EWMCI Bronze , Stock-to-Flow Stars (due to the recent decrease in new emission) and EWX-18 indices
