Netcoin (NET) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency forked from Litecoin and Peercoin in September 2013. Originally it was a pure proof-of-work currency with scrypt as its hashing algorithm, but later the project added a custom proof-of-stake mechanism which it called Personal Investment Rate (PIR). This was meant to increase Netcoin's adoption and savings rate as "stakers" were awarded NET coins based on the number of coins already present in their wallets. As a further incentive to keep the network healthy, Netcoin has implemented what it calls Open Wallet Incentive (OWI), a declining rate of reward for those wallet users who do not stake. Original announcement.
