About StrongHands™

(SHND) is based on Sprouts(SPRTS) which in turn is based on Peercoin(PPC).
Looking at the repositories of both currencies on GitHub you can see that the codes are almost the same.

SHND is a currency that unites Proof-of-Stake (PoS) and Proof-of-Work (PoW) technologies, unlike Bitcoin (BTC), which is just PoW

Proof-of-stake (PoS) is a type of algorithm by which a cryptocurrency blockchain network aims to achieve distributed consensus. In PoS-based cryptocurrencies the creator of the next block is chosen via various combinations of random selection.

A proof-of-work (POW) system (or protocol, or function) is an economic measure to deter denial of service attacks and other service abuses such as spam on a network by requiring some work from the service requester, usually meaning processing time.


This video about PPC helps you understand in a didactic way the advantages of PoS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7tra0vmparI

Since SHND is practically equal to PPC, reading the PPC white paper will certainly help you understand its technology. This is the link to the whitepaper: https://peercoin.net/assets/paper/peercoin-paper.pdf

The difference between PPC and SHND is that SHND offers 100% reward every 30 days of participation; PPC offers 1% annually. We believe that is the reason for the huge amount of SHND coins (according to the Cryptobe website, over 10.6 trillion), against the approximately 24.5 million PPC currently in circulation, according to the CoinMarketCap website.

  1. Go to: C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Roaming\StrongHands
  2. Create a file named “StrongHands.conf”. (It has to be a .conf file, not .txt)
  3. Put the following lines into it and restart the wallet:addnode=

If that does not work, download the StrongHands.conf.
