Improvements include triple algorithm Proof of Work with Multishield difficulty adjustment, Masternodes, Private Send, Community Fund Governance, and future plans for Simple Tokens based loosely on the Color Coins protocol.

What is Pyrk?

Built for the community, we've taken some of the best features of the top utility coins to create a new coin which launched on May 12th 2020 (Bitcoin halving day). There is no pre-mine, there is no ICO. When we launch, it will be from the first block so everybody has a fair chance of mining.

  • NO premine, NO Hidden Blocks, Fair Launch
  • Triple Algorithm Proof of Work
  • Initial block reward 100 Pyrk
  • 20% Reward Reduction every 200,000 Blocks
  • Block Time: 90 Seconds
  • Max Circulation: 100M Pyrk
  • Multishield Difficulty Adjustment
  • Private Send Transactions
  • Masternodes (Initial collateral 1000 Pyrk)
  • Community Fund (Up to 10% of Monthly Mining Reward)
  • Community Fund distribution voted on by Masternodes
  • Pyrk Whitepaper / Pyrk Tokens Draft

  • Proof Of Work

    Instead of trying to create a new Algorithm and avoid ASIC mining, we welcome ASIC mining on 3 of the top Algorithms: SHA256, Scrypt, and X11.


    Run a masternode to help secure the network, assist in private send transactions, and vote on community projects.

    Private Send

    Anonymize your sensitive transactions using the Private Send feature.

    Community Fund

    Up to 10% of monthly block rewards are reserved for approved Community Fund projects which help to boost the Pyrk Ecosystem.

    Who created Pyrk?

    Pyrk was designed and commissioned by Michael Osullivan (lead developer at the exchange It was coded by a couple of well known cryptocurrency developers who have worked on big projects in the past. You can see exactly who is involved on our Github repo. We have the entire history of all changes made to our codebase.

    The governance and direction of Pyrk will NOT be decided solely by it's developers, instead any major action will be voted on by the community using the build in governance tools. In order to have a great community coin, the community must be engaged in it's development as much as possible.

    Core team members may change from time to time as they are elected to their positions.

    This asset has NO ICO and NO Premine, which means that there are no coins to giveaway for bounties or airdrops. We will, however, be making proposals for a bounty program when the community fund starts.
