BlackCoin features the following specifications:

- The probability to sign a block and the block reward does not depend on coinage (anymore).
- Recommended confirmations: 10, maturity: 500
- Minimum transaction fee: 0.0001 BLK
- Defined block time target: 64 seconds
- Max reorganization depth: 500 blocks
- Inflation: about 0.95%.
- PoS block reward: 1.5 BLK + fees
