Miners and Mining in Bitcoin terms is synonymous with Farmers and Farming in HDDcoin terms.
Farming HDDcoin does not consume significant amounts of electricity, and utilizes hard drive space, instead of specialized computing hardware that most Proof of Work (PoW) consensus blockchains have come to demand. Moreover, since electrical energy costs for running hard drives is very minimal, due to this low cost of entry, HDDcoin will remain more decentralized and fair, and thus more secure than any Proof of Stake cryptocurrency.
HDDcoin uses the same plot format as Chia™ who pioneered the Proof of Space Time consensus, allowing you to farm plots created for Chia™ or other blockchains using the same plot format for the HDDcoin blockchain.
Plots are storage space allocated on your Hard Disk Drives for farming.
Sharing the same plots to secure multiple Proof of Space Time blockchains is called co-farming and is another way that HDDcoin is eco-friendly, there is no need to generate plots for HDDcoin specifically, your existing Chia™ work right out of the box.
