Check-Coin Now support Dimecoin

Dimecoin

 
Dimecoin is a decentralized digital currency that was officially launched on December 23, 2013. This makes it a legacy coin that was introduced in the beginning of cryptocurrency.
However, in the beginning of January 2018, a new team took over this abandoned project backed purely by a community of volunteers with the slogan “For the community. By the community.” A redesigned logo and a fresh new website were launched to the public on January 18, 2018, promoting this takeover with more updated information and a roadmap.
Dimecoin’s vision is to be the leader in micro-transactions in the world of digital currency. More on this once they release their white paper.
Quoted from their website “Dimecoin is a community-driven coin “By the Community, For the Community” is our standard. Dimecoin will be implemented in real-world use for micro-transactions, with fast transactions up to 10 seconds per transaction with multi-layered encryption. Many other features are in the works and community will be regularly updated as progression continues.”
