Hobonickels is one of the older crypto running from 2013. Back in time this was a hit reaching 75000sat per HBN but due to crisis in crypto and lack of developement during 2015 and 16 it went down to 40sat. Currently it is back again being devd by legendary Tranz and so far he made great changes and succeded his hardfork proposal. Currently coin is POS minting ~30% yearly which went down from 100%. And block is generated every ~2min from 30s. Still super fast and wallet run much smoother. POW is planned to be turned off by next year 2018 ~October. This coin is conservatively developed where stability and security is priority 1. There are many many years ahead for this coin in good shape and probably get even better with every new version on the roadmap.
