info_outline What is Bytecoin



Bytecoin Short Description

Bytecoin is an open-sourced, private and untraceable cryptocurrency that was started in 2012. Bytecoin is the first coin that implemented CryptoNote technology as a default aspect to build a project. Launched in 2012, Bytecoin was widely spread in the Dark Net as one of the popular available methods for payment. The main thing that separates Bytecoin from most of the other coins is total anonymity - as soon as your transaction appears on a blockchain, your address can’t be viewed by anyone. Bytecoin is the forefather of all of the anonymous cryptocurrencies based on CryptoNote technology.

Here’s a list of the tech features and specifications Bytecoin has:. Ring Signatures. A Ring signature is a special type of digital signature that can be created by someone from a group of users, but it is unknown who exactly the signer is. Imagine a letter that is signed by a group of 10 people. You know that one of them signed the letter, but there’s no way to identify who it actually was (you may only guess). This introduces the untraceability property, which means that for any Bytecoin payment there is a number of equal probable senders.

Unlinkable Transactions. Unlinkable transactions make the Bytecoin blockchain resistant to being scanned, which means it’s possible to see the details of a user’s transaction, but no one will know the sender or the recipient. Stealth Addresses. With stealth addresses it’s not possible to know the sender and the recipient because of the outputs associated with certain addresses, moreover, it’s impossible to know who belongs to a certain output. The complexity of the features above makes Bytecoin absolutely unique..

Bytecoin Competitors

  • 1.) Electroneum

    Electroneum is a new cryptocurrency, made mainly for your mobile, making it easy for you to send, receive and securely trade digital money on your smartphone.

  • 2.) Lethean

    Lethean is the fuel and operating currency for our peer-to-peer (P2P) decentralized VPN. It is based on the CryptoNote technology and uses the exclusive CryptoNight algorithm. Following development and integration of VPN capabilities into the wallet (see roadmap below), the Intense wallet will allow any network user to act as a VPN exit node in exchange for Lethean. In order to act as a node, staking of Lethean in the wallet will be required, fostering currency utilization and network growth. This establishes a novel approach to staking and creates a hybrid proof-of-work/proof-of-stake (PoW/PoS) purpose for Intense. Beyond VPN technology, we want Lethean to be useable by more than crypto enthusiasts! We aim for Intense to become a coin brand that can be utilized, adapted & traded without entry barriers. Imagine your parents or non techy friends are using Intense for the daily shopping rounds as it is just that simple to use without the technical hick hack around it. Our goal is for Intense to be a crypto brand that can be utilized for exchange of various goods and services with minimal barriers. We want to re-brand crypto from a privilege for technophiles to a method of compensation accessible by everyday people.
