Buying MinexCoin is fairly simple, because you can trade fiat currency directly with MNX on an exchange.

MinexCoin launched its protocol with the hope of restricting the high pricing swings often seen in the cryptocurrency markets. The developers claim that their blockchain technology has the potential to limit the volatility levels of its MNX coin by either:

  • Increasing or reducing its supply.
  • Adjusting the interest rates it pays to those holding MNX.

Which wallets can I use to hold MinexCoin (MNX)?

As MNX was not built on top of the Ethereum blockchain, it is not compatible with the more commonly utilized ERC20 standard. Instead, you will need to download the bespoke wallet from MinexCoin for Windows, Linux and Mac OS.

While a mobile app for Android is available, developers expect to release an iOS version in early 2018.

How MinexCoin (MNX) works

Launched in 2017, MinexCoin aims to design a cryptocurrency with the capacity to avoid market volatility. By installing supply-and-demand regulations on top of the bitcoin protocol, MinexCoin’s developers claim that have the required framework to keep MNX stable.

MinexCoin users can benefit from:

  • Central bank ideology. To stabilise MNX, MinexCoin’s developers have designed an economic strategy similar to that of a central bank. According to MNX’s white paper, the network limits the MNX exchange rate at 5% of the previous day’s closing price, either altering the interest rates it pays out to MNX savers or intervening by purchasing or selling coins.
  • Autonomous algorithm. MinexBank is the technology that supports MNX’s stability mechanism. Developers claim that MNX holders can access e-commerce, currency exchange and investment services through the MinexBank client. By ensuring that liquidity levels are high, MinexCoin argues it can limit volatility of the coin.
  • Savings account. Users can temporarily freeze their MNX coins in return for fixed interest payments in the form of MNX.
  • MinexMarket. After MinexMarket’s release later in 2018, the MInexCoin community will be able to buy and sell goods and services in return for MNX. Developers are also planning to release a debit card to ease the stability of the trading platform.

Real-world applications for MinexCoin (MNX)

MNX holders can use the services of the MinexMarket by buying and selling products or earn coins through a MinexBank savings account. Users can also send and receive coins wallet-to-wallet.

Because the MNX coin operates through the bitcoin client, its transactions are validated through the proof-of-work consensus model. This means each transaction is independently verified on the blockchain ledger.

What to consider if buying MinexCoin (MNX)

Cryptocurrency markets are highly speculative, and so you should conduct your own research before purchasing MNX. There’s no guarantee that MinexCoin’s antivolatility model will protect your purchase.

Other factors to consider before purchasing MinexCoin include:

  • Technical specifications. According to MinexCoin’s white paper, the total supply of MNX is capped at 19 million coins. The block time target is pitched at three minutes, and through the proof-of-work consensus model, miners can potentially earn 2.5 MNX per block reward. This is further supported by the Equihash algorithm protocol.
  • The MinexCoin team. CEO and founder Boris Shulyaev claims to have a plethora of experience related to blockchain technology, including owning one of the largest mining farms in Europe. The management team is supported by advisers that include the Kiev National Polytechnic Institute and Kiev National Economic University.
  • Future developments. According to its annual targets published in February 2018, the MinexCoin team plans to launch its decentralised MinexExchange and debit card capabilities in early 2018, releasing the MinexMarket platform later in the year.
  • Market Forces. Ultimately, much like any commodity you can buy, sell or exchange, market forces will determine MNX swings. It remains to be seen how effective the MinexBank intervention strategy will be in response to high trading volumes on third-party exchanges.
