Yes, SCR will be able to be traded at exchanges for other cryptocurrencies.
Scorum Coin (SCR) tokens is a liquid cryptocurrency which can be bought or sold at cryptocurrency exchanges or transferred to other users. These tokens will be available for purchase during the Token Crowdsale. Scorum Power (SP) is an internal token that is used as a mechanism to protect the platform from fraudulent registrations and is also needed to enable technical interactions between the system’s users. SP value is directly proportional to SCR (at 1:1 ratio).
No, a finite amount of SCR and SP tokens will be issued.
No, but you can sign blocks and get rewarded. We’ve set aside a 480K SP pool to be distributed among witnesses (delegates signing blocks) and will further reward them with 5% of SCR generated from advertising profit. The Scorum blockchain uses a Delegated Proof of Stake consensus so all the tokens will be mined and distributed in the genesis block. Block production synchronization among delegates (witnesses) is carried out according to the NTP protocol which is being used successfully in other blockchain systems (Steemit and Bitshares).
