Since this Altcoin only offers 1 coin per block, Cryptominers will have to mine hard to get their fair share of the booty.

Currently Arkenstone (ARS) has a couple of mining pools on the hook for the launch. Configuration information for solo mining is also available.

Configurations that aren’t available include a website, a Block Explorer, Exchanges and Wallets.

The ‘dev’ is making no great claims for charity, innovation, giveaways or promotions, so consider this one bland.

If you would like jump on ship Arkenstone, it’s scheduled for launch tomorrow at  17:00:00 UTC - or 12 noon EST.

Be sure to let us know if it was smooth sailing…
