The developers Meeh and BroTroxer pre-mined 120 blocks at 4.2 ANC per block as a test run before releasing publicly Anoncoin. Additionally there was a difficulty bug that led to the insta-mine of another 880 Blocks. In total, 4,200 coins were minted in a very short time period. At todays price, this would correspond to less than 6 BTC (~2400 USD).
These premined coins were redistributed to the community in the form of giveaways and faucet donations:
- 53 addresses were sent 21 coins each Giveaway Link for a total of 1113 ANC.
- 150 addresses were sent 4.2 coins each Giveaway link for a total of 630 ANC.
- 30 addresses were sent 17.5 coins each Giveaway Link for a total of 530 ANC
- 120 addresses were sent 4.2 coins Giveaway Link for a total of 504 ANC.
- Several thousand ANC were donated to community members for specific tasks, as well as to the official Anoncoin faucet (cached).
