Learn about what makes Aegeus coin different
Aegeus is one of the first proof of stake cryptocurrencies to be based on the *0.10 version 0.10 or higher Bitcoin codebase. This PoS structure does away with coin age. To enable you to make the most of your staking, you must keep your Aegeus wallet open at all times. Having your wallet online at all times will result in more available nodes, thus strengthening the network. With a stronger network, rewards will be distributed fairly across the network and will be removed for inconsistent network users.
Aegeus offers SwiftX transactions that are confirmed and spendable within seconds, guaranteed by the network of masternodes. There is no need to wait for multiple confirmations in order to be confident in the validity of the transaction. SwiftX not only delivers lightning transactions but also peace of mind to both sender and recipient. SwiftX is highly sought after in established currencies due to their close backing with the masternode network which makes it more stable and consistent for network users.
Aegeus Masternodes are incentivized nodes that receive rewards based on their availability and their ability to offer network services in a decentralized and trust-less manner. 50,000 collateral is required in setting up an Aegeus masternode. Masternode owners are also afforded the ability to vote on budget and developmental proposals. Masternode owners make up the backbone of the Aegeus network. Aegeus offer a 10/10 masternode/staking block reward.
Aegeus is creating a private storage network using a custom fork of IPFS. This will enable data availability while at the same time reward those who are running storage nodes considerably for their reliability. Aegeus will take user-provided data, encrypt it with the intended party's key and securely push it onto the storage network using reference locations. Data can be text, image or video based. Sending and storing data this way becomes cheaper, more efficient and highly secure.
Distributing highly sensitive data through centralised means can be very risky. Harnessing the power of P2P, and highly secure Aegeus custom algorithms alleviates this concern. If you or a company wishes to send large amounts of sensitive data to users, not only will you save on costs but you'll also ensure peace of mind via secure delivery and efficiency. User control is of vital importance in today's data world. Aegeus gives data control and ownership back to the user.
Aegeus will utilize IPFS to securely share data with access only granted to the intended party. IPFS or Interplanetary File System, is a distributed file system that seeks to connect all computing devices with the same system of files. Rather than referring to pictures, articles and video objects via their server location, IPFS refers to everything using the hash on the file. So if you want something, IPFS will ask the entire network for a particular file relating to a specific hash.

Encrypt your wallet using the instructions in the wallets sections. Unlock your wallet and tick the box which says For anonymization and staking only. B: Click on Tools, click Open Wallet Configuration File and type staking=1. Save the file, close and restart your wallet. Q13: Do I need to keep my wallet open in order to stake?
AEG is a Proof of Stake (POS) cryptocurrency. Users can mint AEG coins as a reward for participating and supporting the network. AEG is a valuable coin among its many other benefits. The more substantial your stake is, the more likely you will receive rewards consistently.
You can enable staking in your wallet with any amount of coins available, there is no minimum limit. The more coins you have, the more likely you are to receive a staking reward. We would suggest at least 3000+ AEG.
