Peercoin is a distributed peer-to-peer digital currency that can be transferred instantly and securely between any two people in the world.
It’s like electronic cash that you can use to pay friends or merchants.
What are Peercoins?
Peercoins are the unit of currency of the Peercoin system.
A commonly used shorthand for this is “PPC” to refer to a price or amount (e.g. “100 PPC”). here are such things as physical Peercoins, but ultimately, a Peercoin is just a number associated with a Peercoin Address.
A physical Peercoin is simply an object, such as a coin, with the number carefully embedded inside.
