Emerald Crypto (EMD) is an innovative new alternative coin based on the Litecoin codebase. It uses proof of work (POW) to create distributed trustless consensus and solve the double-spend problem. There are dedicated seed nodes for syncing into the right blockchain. Emerald Crypto uses 20 second block time for continuous confirmation of the transactions on its blockchain. The mining difficulty is retarget after each block and is calculated by using the Dark Gravity Wave 3 algorithm (DGW3). Emerald Crypto has only 32 million coins. It is an open source project of a crypto currency, that rebranded from Emerald to Emerald Crypto in August 04, 2014.
