Peercoin's original and noteworthy innovation is the proof-of-stake/proof-of-work hybrid system. Like other cryptocurrencies, initial coins can be mined through the more commonly used proof-of-work hashing process. However unlike other coins, as the hashing difficulty increases over time, users continue to be rewarded with coins generated by the additional proof-of-stake algorithm. Anyone holding 1% of the currency will be compensated with 1% of all proof-of-stake coin blocks. In addition to increased security and improved energy efficiency, the hybrid proof-of-work+proof-of-stake algorithm combats the deflationary tendencies that cryptocurrencies can suffer because of their hard mintage caps.

Donate to the Peercoin Forum

The Peercoin Forum is a website meant to host free discussion of Peercoin and related topics. It is operated as a service to the community, and all profit is reinvested into the forum or various development projects voted by forum members. The forum was started in 2012 by Fuzzybear for the benefit of the coin, the community and as respect for Sunny King, the original creator of Peercoin, and his desire to remain anonymous. It is now managed by Fuzzybear, Sentinelrv, super3, JustaBitofTime, MeBeingAwesome. Donated funds are managed by Fuzzybear.

Peercointalk offers a number of side services as well that run off the same server. All are open source projects that have been adapted by Fuzzybear or others and will remain as tools for the community to use. Services that currently exist are:
