While working on the update, we considered doing a swap to an X11 PoW / PoS coin.
Obviously there are advantages and disadvantages.
I think an X11 coin would attract more people from the community at large. We'd also be able to use a newer client with more features vs. integrating items into the existing client - which isn't great TBH.
If we did this we'd probably adjust the staking percentage. The adjustment could be discussed.
What does the community think about a swap to a new chain?
This is just an idea. We wanted to get feedback from the community as to what they thought.
