Kaspa is currently the fastest proof-of-work, mineable coin in existence while still remaining decentralized. The blockDAG architecture with rapid block rates allows more mining decentralization and enables effective solo-mining at lower hashrates. Fair-launched in November of 2021 with no pre-mine, zero pre-sales, and no coin allocations, Kaspa is 100% decentralized, open-source, and community managed. Total supply of Kaspa is 28.7 Billion coins with an emission schedule that halves once per year via smooth monthly reductions by a factor of (1/2)^(1/12).
Kaspa mining is based on kHeavyHash, a modified form of the the “optical-miner” ready HeavyHash algorithm. kHeavyhash utilizes matrix multiplication that is framed into 2 keccacs. kHeavyHash is energy efficient, core dominant and can be successfully mined by GPU, FPGAs and future specialized mining equipment.

What makes DAGs incredibly fast is the ability to parallelize: since blocks made in parallel are all considered valid (unlike in blockchains where all but one of them will be eventually orphaned), increasing parallel block rates does not harm security, thus removing a...
