Bean Cash (Ticker: BEAN) is a re-brand of the digital currency and network, previously known as BitBean (Ticker: BITB). The BitBean block chain and network began nearly 3 years ago on February 13th., 2015. It was the first 'crypto-currency' to implement a maximum of 20MB block sizes, based on Gavin Andersen's proposals to fix Bitcoin's scalability limitations. BitBean was also the first 'crypto-currency' to pioneer the use of static block rewards in a Proof of Bean (PoB) system -- which now makes energy wasting PoW (Proof of Work) systems, inefficient, expensive and archaic!
Bean Cash builds upon Satoshi's vision for a ""Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System"", as laid out in the Bitcoin whitepaper. When studying the history of Satoshi and Bitcoin, we can discover that it was always Satoshi's intention to lift the block size limit above 1MB in order to scale on-chain as needed -- to meet the demands of adoption. In keeping with Satoshi's vision, BitBean started nearly 3 years ago already with 20MB maximum block sizes. This is 20 times bigger than Bitcoin Segwit's (Ticker: BTC) maximum block size. Combined with a target block time of 60 seconds, Bean Cash is already positioned, to handle over 1,300 transactions per second, allowing it to compete with comparable payment systems such as Paypal. BitBean's Proof of Stake is different from other PoS crypto currencies. BitBean requires 6 hours for beans to mature before they are eligible to stake a block. In addition, unlike other PoS crypto currencies, BitBean creates new blocks using a similar approach as PoW crypto currencies. Blocks which are found are static blocks similar to PoW. Each PoS block reward is 1,000 virtual beans. This is a much better form of proof of stake than determining rewards based on a percentage basis. Crypto currencies are supposed to be a payment system. BitBean's PoS encourages people to actually process transactions instead of hoarding their coins. Hoarding coins and only processing transactions rarely to collect an interest payment, does not make for a good payment transaction network.
