The NavCoin project: past and future

NavCoin is a community-run network that was started in 2014. It initially used Proof of Work, but quickly made the shift to Proof of Stake. With no ICO or premine, NavCoin has always been self-funded to ensure a fair distribution and that everyone has a chance to get involved. In this talk, Craig MacGregor will present the project, how it has evolved since its creation, what challenges the team has faced and what lies in the road ahead.
