PrimeCoin Crypto Currency

PrimeCoin is an experimental cryptocurrency that introduces the first
scientific computing proof-of-work to cryptocurrency technology. PrimeCoin's
proof-of-work is an innovative design based on searching for prime number
chains, providing potential scientific value in addition to minting and
security for the network. Similar to BitCoin, PrimeCoin enables instant payments
to anyone, anywhere in the world. It also uses peer-to-peer technology to 
operate with no central authority: managing transactions and issuing money are 
carried out collectively by the network. PrimeCoin is also the name of the open
source software which enables the use of this currency.

This is the high performance version of Sunny King's PrimeCoin tree.
