Peercoin: the low energy Bitcoin beater? [infographic]

Peercoin, previously known as PPCoin, was born with the dream of improving the system previously established by Bitcoin.

“Usually known as PPCoin” isn’t accurate anymore. This coin is now mostly known as “Peercoin” after a consensually-agreed, recent re-branding effort. The Peercoin community is politely hoping and requesting the name “PPCoin” isn’t used going forward to lessen confusion.

You could though, have correctly stated, “Previously known as PPCoin” or “Once known as PPCoin”.
