Welcome to ChaCha3

A cryptocurrency designed to be fun
Earn credits by discovering and mining asteroids

Start mining

Explore

The interactive explorer shows the positions of the last 200 asteroids discovered and mined within the Solar System. Read the guide to discover and mine one yourself.

Overview

Large supply

Total credit supply of over 2 Septillion, enough to support use throughout the whole system.

Block time

1 minute. A good block time for maintaining security and decentralization of the asteroid mining industry.

Block reward

Initial block reward of 1 Quintillion. Halving every 1 Million blocks (approx. 2 years) as the supply of mineable asteroids become smaller.

Hash algorithm

The BLAKE3 algorithm is new and secure. Without any current GPU and ASICS miner, it presents you with a lot of mining oppurtunities.

Wallet

Wallets are made encrypted and secure by default without requiring hardware wallet.

Ownership

Any asteroid you mine is yours to conquer. Colonize them now to obtain permanent ownership of bigger asteroids while they are available.

Developer Roadmap

Stage 1

The first stage is the development of ChaCha3 Core. The provides all features to run a node to be able to interact and transact on the network. It allows anyone to run a node to support the network or earn credits.

The features in this stage are:

  • Node server
  • Wallets
  • Peer-to-peer communication
  • Asteroid miner
  • Create transactions
  • Chain synchronization
  • Basic CPU miner
  • Interactive shell

Stage 2(current)

The second stage includes adding features to expand the system as well as features to help developers built on top of ChaCha3 nodes.

The features in this stage are:

  • Solar system
  • JSON-RPC and API Authentication
  • Block explorer
  • SDK

Stage 3

The third stage is the development phases to support general adoption and more exciting features to interact with the multi-planetary system.

The features planned for this stage are:

  • Multi-planetary and system support
  • Interactive story-based space game
  • Space item minting
  • Personal inventory
  • Item trading

Launch dates

Start mining

ChaCha3 uses Blake3 as a hashing algorithm that has no ASICS implementation currently. The core node comes with a built-in CPU miner that you can use to get started. There are no optimized miners at the moment for this protocol. View the mining guide to see how.
