Changes to the referral and support programs

Thoughts on Decentralization

The JSEcoin system is currently fully centralized. We run a series of servers behind a load balancer. The Bitcoin network is decentralized meaning that there is no central authority or point of access. Anyone can run a node/server and this will connect to all the other nodes in a p2p network. Control over the system…
