A list of commonly asked question.
history and monetary policy
Peseta was launched the 6th January, 2014. For the curious ones here you can see the first block of the Peseta blockchain:
Peseta was born because of the interest of the spanish society to see what once was our beloved currency.
The total amount of Peseta that will issued is because of the exchange rate Peseta/Euro had that was 166,386.
The objective is to avoid an excessive inflation and to help the coin grow in value.
Pesetas has a similar monetary policy similar to Bitcoin. A bigger amount of coins issued in the beginning to promote the adoption and it’s starts slowly decreasing until 2029 when all the Pesetas are issued.
Details of the emission:
From block 0 to 525.599: 166,386 Pesetas/block.
From block 525.600 to 554.999: 83,193 Pesetas/block.
From block 550.000 to 1.051.199: 50 Pesetas/block.
From block 1.051.200 to 1.576.799: 25 Pesetas/block.
From block 1.576.800 to 2.627.999: 10 Pesetas/block.
From block 2.628.000 to 8.409.599: 5 Pesetas/block.
From block 8.409.600 no more Pesetas are issued.
Yes, and is because transactions are made between particulars without intermediaries and almost any commission.
It means you can make 10,000 transactions with a total 0,28€. Or 0,000028€ per transaction.
The math was made in December 2017.

Same as Bitcoin, transactions are pseudo-anonymous. This means every transaction is public but without the identity of the person attached to the transaction.
Spanish population wants to see Peseta back and that’s clearly an advantage but it’s also 10 times faster and can transmit 10 times more transactions than Bitcoin.
Peseta is not related in any manner with the Spanish government.
We do expect that as the adoption from the Spanish population starts growing, government starts allowing people to pay taxes and other services in Peseta.
