I read the funding page, and I liked what I read.
However, it states that zcash is just like Bitcoin in the fact that 21 million will be made and that 50 will be made every 10 minutes for the first 4 years.
So then why is the miner reward for the most recent block on zcha.in showing 12.52073058 ZEC being doled out and not 50 ZEC?
Have miners already blown through the entire 4 years worth of 50 ZEC rewards and another 4 years of 25 ZEC rewards?
And where did the extra 0.02073058 ZEC come from? Why is it not an even 12.5 ZEC?
And my final mining related question is why is the difficulty seemingly stagnant according to coinwarz.com's difficulty charts ???
Is there really not that much interest in zcash mining? Or what is going on there?
Bitcoin difficulty has been climbing ever since it was launched. Why is zcash difficulty stagnant?
Thank you for reading.
