What is Pyro?
Pyro is new digital cryptocurrency based on improved Dash blockchain.
Established on a Proof of Work and Masternode system, this means everyone can participate in Pyro's growth, to make Pyro more decentralized without a monopoly.
Pyro self-reliant open source currency, that has undisputed benefits and will be used in our and community future projects, that help keep integrity and the stability of network.
Pyro has integrated Difficulty Retargeting Using Dark Gravity Wave, transaction Anonymity Using PrivateSend, Masternodes that help keep integrity and stability of network.

The first project of the Pyro team is to introduce a crowdfunding platform, which will enable individuals to find backers for their projects and ideas.
Pyro will be used as payment method to back their projects, so investors that wish to participate in crowdfunding will get sweet rewards, based at the discretion of the project or idea creator, This will help ensure the stability and growth of Pyro.

Many people asking our vision of the project, here is our answer:

Pyro first solution will be like Kickstarter on blockchain at first, Fast and simple, friendly UI. No banking systems, fees, credit cards. Anyone who chooses can participate in any idea or project of their choosing.
You will be able to come to the platform and see all available projects and ideas pick the one that you would like to be a backer of and participate, it will be up to the creator on how they wish to reward you much like kickstarter does.
This will be the first part of the Pyro ecosystem, then the second part of the ecosystem will be an exchange system. The idea is not just another coin, that why its not called Pyro coin we are not aiming to just put out another coin. We feel that there is not a need for more coins but second generation blockchain projects. We aim to build an entire ecosystem of useful coins and projects.
As we build this idea together with the community moving forward we will strive for openness and transparency for backers and government agencies and the community at large. Also we are offering master nodes only to help with the funding we need to move the project forward, we are looking to do more than just make wild promises we are building an entire ecosystem.
We are Pyro.

Greetings community first we want to thank you for your continue support for our project, we would like to take some time and give you a quick update on what’s happening and what we have accomplished so far.
We have the new MAC wallet online, also we have successfully completed our first master-node auction, with that said we have contacted Graviex for our first exchange listing, we also plan to either list with crypto-bridge or BTC-ALPHA, we are waiting for the Graviex listing and are preparing for the masternodesonline listing, also we have decided to sell 9 MN's from auction at fixed a price of 0.5 btc. If you are interesting please contact @THE 39625B58.
We are also finishing up the final touches to our website.


Ticker: PYRO
Algorithm: Lyra2Z
Blocktime: 120 seconds (2 minutes)
Block Reward: 8 PYRO, decreasing by 16% every year
MN Reward starts from 1500 block
Masternode Reward: 50%
Required 1000 PYRO for Masternode
Premine 200,000 (~1.6%)
Estimate Supply ~12,000,000
Default port 9669
Difficulty Retargeting: Each block

Reward distribution:

Amount nSubsidy = 8 * COIN;

if (nPrevHeight >= 1 && nPrevHeight < 200){
nSubsidy = 1 * COIN;
}else if (nPrevHeight >= 200 && nPrevHeight < 400){
nSubsidy = 2 * COIN;
}else if (nPrevHeight >= 400 && nPrevHeight < 600){
nSubsidy = 4 * COIN;
}else if (nPrevHeight >= 600 && nPrevHeight < 800){
nSubsidy = 6 * COIN;

Block 1 - 200 1 Pyro
Block 201 - 400 2 Pyro
Block 401 - 600 4 Pyro
Block 601 - 800 6 Pyro
Block 801 - till the end 8 Pyro
Block 1500 MN payment start 50%

How to mine Pyro on a mining pool ?

1. Create a wallet address
You'll need a wallet to receive the Pyro coins mined. It is better to download the official wallet according to your Operating System. There is another crappy quick and dirty method that we don't recommend: create a wallet address on an exchange but many exchange diagree and may lost some coins.


Please refer to the official bitcointalk thread:

[nVidia] 2. Miner for nVidia cards (lyra2z)
For nVidia cards, we suggest you CCminer :

For AMD cards, see here below.

Remark: some anti-virus and anti-malware may detect the miner as a virus. It is due to the fact that miners were integrated in malwares and virusses so some anti-virus detect the miner as a potentially dangerous component. We use these binaries since years: we've never encounter problems because we avoid to download any binaries and always use the offial binary release on bitcointalk or github.

[nVidia] 3. Configure ccminer batch file and launch it
3.1 Create a new launch file ("mine PYRO on unimining.bat" using notepad or notepad++ under windows) and paste the following command into it:
ccminer-x64 -a lyra2z -o stratum+tcp:// -u donate -p c=PYRO
Please note the following arguments to the miner ccminer (64 bits version for my OS):
-a lyra2z : set the algorithm
-o stratum+tcp:// : set the mining pool URL and stratum port
-u donate : wallet address used as username. Please remove donate and write your own address created at step 1
-p c=PYRO : optional (password) parameters. -p is used to give the password related to the username. As mining is anonymous, the password is used to pass optional arguments. c=PYRO is used to force YiiMP to mine Pyro coins (PYRO is the symbol defined on the pool for Pyro) : YiiMP should detect the crypto-currency mined according to the wallet address but as coins are forks of other coins (and some don't adapt address' code), it doesn't always work as expected. So we recommand to always set the coin with at least the optional parameter c (ex: c=PYRO).. stats is used to perform a benchmark of your GPU (first GPU on multi-GPU) on the 50st share. To add several parameter, seperate them by commas, e.g. -p c=PYRO,stats to set the coin as Pyro coin and perform benchmark
--cpu-priority=3 : parameter used to set the cpu priority.
3.2 Launch the *.bat file and check wallets' page after 5 to 10 minutes.

[AMD] 2. Miner for AMD cards (lyra2z)
For AMD cards, you can download test different AMD miners that are compatible with lyra2z algo:

Please take care of your AMD graphic cards drivers.

For mining lyra2z with AMD cards, you should use the same stratum URL and Stratum port as described here above for nVidia cards.

3.3. Launch the *.bat file and check wallets' page after 5 to 10 minutes.
