Emercoin is an emerging leader in secure, distributed blockchain business services. With many companies using Emercoin technology, there is a core Emercoin team that maintains and develops services for the public Emercoin Blockchain, which uses the Emercoin cryptocurrency (EMC) to perform a variety of services.
Offering some of the most innovative, real-world solutions, the Emercoin Blockchain is the premier public blockchain for secure, decentralized business operations.
* Having a wallet physically installed on your device is the most secure option. By using online wallets you are entrusting your cryptographic keys to a third party, with all the possible consequences.
Once installed, it will take some time for the wallet to download the current version of the Emercoin blockchain. After that, you are good to go sending, receiving, or mining cryptocurrency with your wallet.
Once you have installed the wallet, you can purchase Emercoins on several cryptocurrency exchanges, most notably:
So how do you exactly buy cryptocoins on an exchange? The easiest way is to place a “market” order, meaning that you will buy EMC for USD at the lowest rate currently offered by sellers.
All cryptocurrency exchanges charge a small fee on the deal amount, varying from 0.10 to 0.25%. You can compare those here.
If you don’t want to mess with exchanges, you can use Indacoin, a web service that sells cryptocurrency for fiat money. This will cost more in commissions, but will save your time and anonymity.
Just like with any cryptocurrency, you can earn coins by generating new blockchain blocks. This can be done either through merged mining with Bitcoin, or through minting blocks in Emercoin’s own blockchain.
In the latter case, you get a guaranteed 6% per annum return on the staked EMC amount.
