PengolinCoin is a Proof of Stake (PoS), open source, decentralized blockchain-based cryptocurrency focused on achieving fast transactions, an active and involved community, real-world utilization, network scalability, and fungibility.

PengolinCoin’s roots are derived from the cryptocurrency, Dash.
Dash is a fork of Bitcoin, and through it, PengolinCoin retains the valuable features of Bitcoin such as its distributed, decentralized, immutable ledger, and its network of nodes.
PengolinCoin also retains the valuable features of Dash, such as its instantsend technology and its use of Masternodes. Masternodes are a crucial part of the network and provide maximum uptime and service. What distinguishes PengolinCoin from others is that it not only uses Masternodes, but it also uses the PIVX Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus algorithm technology.
PengolinCoin uses two different staking systems to run its network- hot staking and masternodes. Rewards are given to PengolinCoin users that choose to maintain a balance of at least one PengolinCoin in their wallets or by storing 100,000 PengolinCoins and running a masternode.
PengolinCoin’s goal is to be accessible to everyone, everywhere.
This is why we develop the most useful and accessible applications and means of communication.

The PengolinCoin (PGO) community remains at the center of the PengolinCoin project and it is the source for new ideas and new challenges.
It is made up of cryptocurrency enthusiasts from all different places and walks of life. The PengolinCoin Team always strives to maintain trust and transparency with it’s community.
A portion of PengolinCoin’s profits will go to save the endangered Pangolin. We will continue to support our partnered charity, the Pangolin Crisis Fund and continue to fundraise and support them.
PGO is eco-friendly as it does not require a lot of energy or any traditional computationally demanding computer equipment to run its network.
PGO can be hot staked by simply installing the core desktop wallet, depositing at least one coin into the wallet, and unlocking the wallet in Staking Only mode. Deposited coins will start to stake after 21 confirmations. With hot staking, the wallet needs to be kept online and running in order for staking to function. Cold staking is already set up in the wallet and will be available in the near future.
You can build a masternode (100,000 PGOs required) that is controlled via your local wallet. Your local wallet is not required to be kept open, and you can store it as a cold wallet while still collecting masternode payments.
There are many ways to set up a masternode, but you'll find a secure way to do it in the official PGO Masternode Tutorial.You can also participate in a shared masternode by visiting one of PGOs partners. A list of partners can be found in PGOs Discord server. If you need any additional help, feel free to join PGO Discord and ask for a help in #support channel.

News & Updates

The Swap Is Over! PengolinCoin (PGO) Is Now Proof of Stake (PoS)!
Greetings fellow Pengolonians! As you may or may not know PengolinCoin has moved from a Proof of Work (PoW) consensus to a Proof of Stake Consensus (PoS). We made this decision for several reasons. First, our original code was old and out dated. We needed to update the code and this could have taken months. Second, PengolinCoin was being dominated by FPGA’s and ASIC miners which leads to decentralization and coin dumping. Finally, we were lucky enough to find and add Alonewolf to the team. Alonewolf is a PIVX blockchain expert and educated us on the advantages of this blockchain and Proof of Stake. The best part is that Alonewolf could complete the new code in a week. The new PengolinCoin code will set the project up for a successful future... [Read more]
