Sprouts is a decentralized and open-source cryptocurrency blockchain built as a currency to be mined and staked. There is a strong focus on the community, and Sprouts prides itself on being run by the community for the community. The Sprouts blockchain has a hybrid Proof-of-Work and Proof-of-Stake consensus that allows anyone to become a node on its network and help verify transactions. Nodes can choose to either be Proof-of-Work and use computing power or be Proof-of-Stake and stake their coins to confirm blocks. The Proof-of-Stake reward is set at 10% for 5 days, which is relatively high compared to other blockchains which typically set a 5% reward.
Sprouts (SPRTS) coins are the native digital assets of the Sprouts blockchain that can be mined on its hybrid consensus.
