Bitcoin Interest ("BCI") is a competitive staking cryptocurrency focusing on three key areas Technology, Community, and Savings. Our blockchain has new integrated savings technology that allows our users to safely park their coins and earn interest payments without ever moving coins from their wallets.
Unlike other interest payment platforms that require you to send your coins to them, Bitcoin Interest is the first fully decentralized interest payments platform that will never ask you to send your coins anywhere! With our advanced interest technology you can hold your coins in your own wallet and receive interest payments with absolutely no risk to you. You'll never be required to trust your coin holdings with anyone again!
Bitcoin Interest is built using the latest technology, focusing on speedy frictionless transactions. Bitcoin Interest can handle many transactions per second while reducing the bottlenecks and lag of the legacy version of Bitcoin.
Our community recognizes that to have a viable and robust ecosystem that the miners must be treated with fairness and respect. Bitcoin Interest is an enhanced Proof of Work ("PoW") Equihash algorithm and will start off with a much lower mining difficulty than Bitcoin allowing the miners in our community to benefit from higher rewards. By utilizing GPU mining, we will see a more decentralized network as we will not be excluding any of the smaller miners. Bitcoin Interest wants to minimize the advantage that specialized hardware miners (such as ASICs) have over commodity hardware setups.
Our advanced savings technology allows our coin holders to safely park their coin holdings in their own wallets. Users can earn weekly or monthly interest payments in the form of Bitcoin Interest ("BCI") coins with absolutely no risk of losing their BCI coin holdings.
Bitcoin Interest has a well-rounded team; Our Engineers have deep knowledge of Cryptography and Decentralized Systems. We do not Control Bitcoin Interest, nor do we control the mining or distribution of Bitcoin Interest. Our community contributes to the decentralization, helping to protect it from failure. We launched Bitcoin Interest to help the community of miners and coin holders alike, as they are the ones that continue to drive this industry towards success.

Yes. Bitcoin Interest is the continuation of the Bitcoin project as peer-to-peer digital cash. It is a fork of the Bitcoin blockchain ledger with upgraded consensus rules that allow the user to earn income from their parked coins.
If you held Bitcoin at the time Bitcoin Interest was created you received a 1 to 1 swap from Bitcoin to Bitcoin Interest. This means that Bitcoin holders at block 505083 now have the same amount of Bitcoin Interest as they had in Bitcoin. If your Bitcoins are stored by a third party then you must inquire with them about your Bitcoin Interest coins.
Any transactions after block 505083 ledger split are completely separate between Bitcoin and Bitcoin Interest. This means any Bitcoin acquired after the split does not include any Bitcoin Interest, and any Bitcoin Interest does not include any Bitcoin.
You must first register for an account on the Bitcoin Interest website. You can park your coins by choosing an interest pool cycle of either Weekly or Monthly. If you happen to join the interest pool round after it has started you will only be eligible to receive interest for the remaining days. If you move your parked BCI coins out of your wallet before the interest pool round has ended, you will not receive your interest payment.
Yes, your parked BCI coins are safe. You can park your BCI coins from your desktop wallet and our system will check your assigned BCI address to make sure your parked balance has not changed. Bitcoin Interest will never hold or control your BCI coins, you are always in full control of your holdings!
Bitcoin Interest addresses will start with either the letters i or A to clearly distinguish from Bitcoin addresses which start with 1 and 3. This will prevent people from mistakenly sending to incorrect addresses.
The legacy Bitcoin code gives you no rewards for holding your coins while most financial options offer you the opportunity to generate interest on your savings. Bitcoin Interest was created to provide you with a safe, decentrilized and profitable alternative for storing your wealth.

To claim your BCI coins after the fork, insert your BTC private key into your BCI wallet. Another option would be to transfer your BTC to an exchange that will be supporting the Bitcoin Interest fork at launch and simply hold your BTC there. They should credit your account automatically after the fork. Please contact the exchange to ensure they will be supporting the BCI fork.
