Head Start On Building Participation Score.

Participation score keeps nodes in the registry, and is used to proportionally distribute the new coins created at each new block (higher the participation score, higher is the share of coins rewarded). Accounts that are in the Genesis Block of ZooBC start with a higher participation score compared to the one that a new node has when it first joins the registry. While this is necessary to assure a valid startup of the blockchain, it comes back as an incredible financial advantage to the accounts that join from day zero.
