Garlicoin (GRLC) brands itself as the “friendly, decentralized cryptocurrency you’ve never heard of.” On Dec. 25, 2017, the idea behind Garlicoin was first sprouted in Reddit by user “u/DigitalizedOrange,” with the vision to create a revolutionary meme cryptocurrency. Less than a month later, on Jan. 21, 2018, Garlicoin mainnet officially launched.
The meme crypto focused on three main features: cheap and fast transactions — block times are 40 seconds; low barrier to entry — anyone with a GPU or CPU can mine due to its ASIC-resistant proof-of-work (PoW) algorithm; massive focus on growing the Garlicoin community. The capped total maximum supply of Garlicoin is 69 million. Garlicoin’s official website features animated garlic avatars and other creatures in a fun and colorful (yellow) background. Users looking to start buying Garlicoin or explore its ecosystem can take a look at its resources page, which includes the Garlicoin wiki, wallets, exchanges, pools, faucets and more. Furthermore, users can create web payments using GRLC tokens and earn small amounts of GRLC tokens from the crypto faucets every 8 hour.
