Postmining is a term for a new form of scam that Devs are now pulling.

Devs that realize some members are reading their code during their launch are now adding hidden blocks with extra coins in wallet code upon updates.

When the update syncs, the Dev has new coins that he then dumps on the altcoin exchanges.

This new scam means that a huge dump of hidden coins can happen long after the launch.
