Meowcoin is a blockchain built on the KaWPOW algorithm and aims to integrate blockchain technology in the animal sector while securing decentralization of the network with the help of miners through Proof-of-Work. Meowcoin donates part of the block reward to animal shelters, benefitting the wider animal sector through philanthropic means.

A full node keeps track of the blockchain while the miners validate the blocks. The network requires both to run. By running a full node, you are helping secure the network. Best of all, running a node requires minimal hardware and can run on an existing computer or a miner.
