Webcash is an experimental new electronic cash ("e-cash") that enables decentralized and instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. Users send webcash to one another directly on a decentralized peer-to-peer basis by copying-and-pasting their webcash to their recipient. The central server helps webcash wallets detect double-spending and ensure the integrity of the monetary supply according to the supply schedule.
Get webcash by either using the webcash mining protocol (see also the more performant webminer) or have someone send you existing webcash for payment or in trade for goods and services.
The supply schedule calls for 200,000 webcash (currently 3,125 webcash) every 10 seconds halvening every 2 months for 3 years for a total supply of 210,000,000,000 webcash. Note that 5% of mined webcash goes to the webcash server.

This is an experiment and the system may have to be reset.
