Announcement and Release

CHNCoin was announced and released on May 1, 2013, by bitcointalk forum member CHNCoin. The name likely stands for ChinaCoin, as the initial announcement was made in the Chinese language sub-forum on bitcointalk, followed by an English announcement in the Alternate cryptocurrencies sub-forum approximately 4 hours later. Nothing is known at the moment as to the true identity of the creator of CHNCoin. It is likely that he had created a new forum account to mask his forum identity. CHNCoin mentioned in his Chinese announcement thread that only the first 10 blocks were pre-mined.
