Some of you might not know what PKT is. Don’t worry because I’m going to start by explaining it.

What Is PKT and Why should you Mine It?

PKT is a cryptocurrency that operates using its own blockchain. The basis for its blockchain is based on the Bitcoin codebase. It utilizes the unused bandwidth of its users and rewards them for sharing it in the form of PKT cash.

The main goal of PKT is to decentralize somehow the overall ISP industry. Doing so grants the users the ability to become their own internet providers. It uses the Cjdns technology for this purpose.

The overall limit of PKT is 6 billion, and the circulating amount right now is over 3.5 billion. The overall potential of this coin is very high because without even having a proper investor, PKT is thriving.

Once this coin starts taking off, this coin can become very beneficial. Not to mention, mining is straightforward because (as mentioned before) it only uses the unused bandwidth of your internet.
