DungeonCoin uses a consensus protocol called Proof-of-Mapmaking (PoMking). This allows the nodes of the DungeonCoin network to agree on the state of all information recorded on the DungeonCoin blockchain and prevents certain kinds of economic attacks.
This mechanism that allows the decentralised* DungeonCoin network to come to consensus, or agree on protocols like account balances and the order of transactions. This prevents users from "double spending" their coins and ensures that the DungeonCoin chain is tremendously difficult to attack, manipulate or understand.
Proof-of-Mapmaking is the underlying algorithm that sets the difficulty and rules for the maps miners create. Mining itself happens by making maps in the Battlemap Editor. The difficulty is defined by the usage of certain assets, tools and aesthetic procedures. Lesser used tools and assets generate the most coins until the usage averages. Assets can be also owned in form of non-fungible tokens which don't count to the mining algorithm but bring other benefits.
