Feathercoin is a cryptocurrency that came online in 2013. Originally, it was a litecoin clone with only a few differences. However, throughout its lifespan, Feathercoin has implemented its own innovative ideas as well.
There are different ways to get Feathercoins. Users can obtain parts through mining using their hardware power and free software. Or they can buy Feathercoins on online exchangers. In addition, there is a special online service where users can buy and sell goods and services in Feathercoins.
Due to the fact that denominated cryptocurrency is cheaper than fiduciary money in terms of fees, traders can sell their products at lower prices and thus attract more customers.
Payments are processed almost momentarily. Using Feathercoin is easy and absolutely safe. Your private data remains anonymous.

Feathercoin experienced 51% of attacks where the attackers managed to get authentic orphan blocks and get their own mined blocks accepted by the network. This is very frustrating for minors and exposes users to the risk of reverse transactions. Bitcoin includes a checkpoint system to solve this problem, where some blocks can be hard-coded in the client so that your client connects only to the blockchain with these blocks.
New developments around Feathercoin include the United Open Currency Solutions Group (UNOCS), an advocacy group created in collaboration with WorldCoin and PhenixCoin, an attack-proofing system known as "advanced checkpointing" and an e-commerce platform named E-bay. Feathercoin now has the sixth largest market capitalization of all cryptocurrencies, placing it above Novacoin, Primecoin and Devcoin.
