OKCash started out in 2014 as Pimpcash and was rebranded in February 2015 to OKCash by the lead developer who calls himself OKToshi.
He has a lot of experience in software development, he created ROKOS, a Linux-based OS for IoT devices like Raspberry Pi, which, incidentally, comes with a built-in wallet for OKCash as well as some other cryptocurrencies.
OKCash prides on being open-source and completely decentralized, and absolutely anyone can contribute to the OKCash code. It has a huge community of creative developers meeting together to help develop the currency.
OKCash was one of the earlier coins to use the Proof-of-stake technology, which requires much less energy to mine than Proof-of-work coins.
During the first 15 days after its launch, it was based on a Proof-of-work system, and the mining lasted for this period without halving, so it was fair for all miners, even if they started mining late. It became fully Proof-of-Stake after this period, fulfilling its goal of hybrid initial distribution.
The circulating supply of OKCash is about 74.088 million OK coins, less than 75 % of the total 105 million coins. It has a market cap of 4.94 million USD with an individual price of about $ 0.0666 USD, as of July 2018.
The main mission of the Okcash project is to empower its users while being both energy-friendly and sustainable.
They evolve with positive innovations, and decentralization to give the power to the user and help move crypto forward. The OK movement mission is to help change the world with positive innovation.
