What is a Proof of Trust consensus mechanism?

COTI’s Proof of Trust consensus mechanism is rather unique. It’s a combination of Trustchain (a DAG-based data structure) and Proof of Work. In the PoT system, validators are selected based on their trust score, which is calculated by their historical behaviour and payment statistics. The higher the trust score, the faster the transaction and the lower the fees.

How many COTI coins are there?

COTI has a maximum supply of 2,000,000,000. Roughly 60% of the maximum supply is currently circulating at the time of writing.
