The Korecoin team is hard at work developing their Æther Kripton OS. As we learned previously, the operating system itself has been tested through an emulator and is running smoothly. We have received some more details about the OS itself, and the efforts being made by the team in order to attract more mobile developers.

One of the things everyone should be aware of is the fact Æther Kripton OS is not an Android fork. It’s a new mobile operating system which, at this time, contains over 8,000 lines of written code. Just try to picture the amount of hours required in order to code such a massive project, and you will see why it has taken a while before the Korecoin team revealed any information.

Having a mobile OS is one thing, but you need applications to make it usable. There are several test applications being written as we speak, and the team keeps looking for more mobile developers who want to create applications for Æther Kripton OS. This is achieved by posting a listing on several forums, including the well known XDA Developers Forums ; with a request to list the thread amongst the other main OS Threads.

Some of the applications currently being tested through the emulator include the Korecoin wallet, an address book, a call function, a search function and a messages application. All of these programs run smoothly on Æther Kripton OS in this environment, thus creating a solid foundation of usability for this operating system.

To get the app coders on their way , the team is currently compiling the essential API’s, including documentation; as well as a simple SDK. The Æther team expects to meet their projected Dec 12th release , and they will then reach out to even more coder forums.

We are also told the Æther Kripton OS will go where no Operating System has gone before, so we await the details that will further explain that statement. Check out the screenshot and GIF : http://i.imgur.com/j6L0Nrb.gif to see these test applications that run in their secure sandboxed environment:

BitStars_Newsletter_newgames-550x353Bitstars.net announced today that its players will have the possibility to deposit and play with the Euro currency as well as the already existing bitcoin crypto currency.

Commenting on this latest breakthrough, Nikolica Vadaski, head of Bitstars Casino said ‘’ With this hybrid option players have the option to use their Bitstars wallet to store bitcoins and real money at the same time while alternating between currencies as they please. They will still enjoy all the benefits of the welcome package. In fact, a player can make a first deposit in bitcoins and receive his first deposit bonus in bitcoins, but then he can choose to make his second deposit in Euro as well as receiving the second deposit bonus in Euro too.’’

From today players can enjoy over 500 new real money casino games from well renowned game providers including big names like Microgaming, Next Gen, Leanders and the latest addition BetSoft.

Betsoft is a provider that designs games with the most important thing in mind, the player’s fun factor. Betsoft features a big collection of over 150 unique and diverse games some including true cinematic 3D video slots. Mark Allison, Commercial Director at BetSoftGaming said: “One of our core values at BetSoft is using the newest technologies to provide an exceptional iGaming experience. Bitstars’ incorporation of the crypto currency Bitcoin is a great reflection of that value. Now more players than ever will have access to the best true 3D games in the market, and we are pleased to be partnering with them in this endeavour.”

The casino brand Bistars has taken the world by storm. After a period of time only accepting bitcoins it has now opened its doors to all those customers who want to join premium fun and entertainment but were not that familiar with the bitcoin currency. This means that Bitstars has once again raised the bar in the iGaming industry as it becomes the only Casino of its kind where players can visit and choose between depositing AND playing with either Euro or bitcoins.

Real money deposits can be made using credit card, bank account or several choices of money wallets that are available such as Skrill.

The addition of multiple providers will also continue to add to the fun and excitement that the bitstars players already enjoy from other game providers like Amatic & Softswiss. Lets not forget the enjoyable Live Casino by Ezugi where players can dig into Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat and even Lottery. While visiting they can also start to get accustomed to the benefits and options the bitcoin has to offer.

The fact that it is now possible to wager for real money or crypto currency, definitely makes Bitstars stand out as the first Casino of its kind. Players have a buffet of options be it choice of games or type of currency. Whatever they choose they have it right here under one roof. This is surely a unique trend setter.

This latest addition will also bring with it another huge change as apart from the addition of over 500 new games, Bitstars.net is now operated by Nabelse Holdings Limited and all its game content is licensed through the Softswiss NV license registered and holding e-gaming license 8048/JAZ2014-012 in Curacao, with T&C also governed by the same laws applicable in Curacao.

I have always been impressed with the idea of Bitcoin and I have persistently been tracking its progress since 2011. Still, being a supporter of one great idea doesn’t get in a way of being a sucker for exploring uncharted territories and I still continue investigating the market and keep track of new perspective digital currencies. That is probably why I’ve got involved with NXT and Ripple and some other cryptocoins called Next Generation.

But however novel and different the concepts of those coins are from Bitcoin still them being non-mineable simply doesn’t jibe with my understanding of how coin should work.

It was around the middle of 2013 that I first stumbled upon CryptoNote technology. Right about that time Gregory Maxwell described his concept of user privacy protection tech called “CoinJoin” and I got interested if anyone else was working on the same issue. Back then the notion of anonymous transactions was not as hyped as it is now and Google search would give me all sorts of anonymity related results but not what I was looking for. It took me awhile before I was able to find the bits of information about CryptoNote and its first implementation, Bytecoin.

Prior to the release of Bitcoin there were a number of ecash technologies starting with the issuer based ecash protocols of David Chaum and Stefan Brands, and moving on to Adam Back’s hashcash, Wei Dai’s b-money and Nick Szabo’s bit-gold. However beautiful these precursor technologies were, they had one thing in common. They lacked the user privacy protection, namely the anonymity feature. And it seems that what everyone was missing had already been up and running in Bytecoin.

The heart of the CryptoNote protocol, which is what Bytecoin relies so heavily on, is its ring signature technology. This scheme makes it possible to sign a message on behalf of a group and while the fact of a transaction taking place is clear, nobody is able to pinpoint the transfer to a specific individual. The CryptoNote protocol also makes it possible for transactions to be untraceable. Payments are split up between multiple one-time addresses that can only be received by the person who has the correct public key. So to estimate the amount of a transaction is virtually impossible.
As opposed to other noteworthy currencies such as NXT and Ripple, Bytecoin has the advantage of a mineable currency. And Bytecoin mining principle is diferrent from the Bitcoin’s one we got used to. The award for each next block is a bit less compared to the previous one. This stepless decrease in award forms a smooth award curve and does not suffer from 50% sharp declines as Bitcoin does.

Another feature that deserves looking into is PoW algorithm CryptoNight. It is memory bound and designed to be suitable for ordinary PC CPUs. Currently no special purpose devices for mining are available. Therefore, CryptoNight can only be CPU/GPU-mined for a few years to come. Although CPU-mining has one potential disadvantage, namely botnets, while looking at the BCN hashrate/difficulty charts I couldn’t find any significant spikes that would indicate presence of botnets.

All that is known about the origin of CryptoNote protocol is that it was developed in 2012 by the members of the community comprised of cryptologists, mathematicians, economists and programmers. As for Bytecoin, it was officially launched on July 4th 2012 and the embryo of its user base that was formed in scientific circles gradually transformed into a more diverse pool of users.

Having followed the development of BTC and BCN for a long time I couldn’t help but wonder if there were any similarities between two. Driven by curiosity I’ve conducted a cursory analysis aiming at uncovering any underlying resemblance. The charts below represent a comparative analysis of transaction history of Bitcoin and Bytecoin in which I have found somewhat interesting characteristics:

Bytecoin

The initial bulk of BCN transactions is riddled with abnormalities. It is likely that the very first of them were created deliberately to increase the number of outputs needed in order to enable the anonymity feature in future transactions. Also, growth in transactions volume on initial stages is equally slow on both charts. In case with Bitcoin it could be explained by novelty of the technology i.e. while thousands were aware of the new cryptocurrency only a few dared to become early adopters. The spikes that are clearly visible on both charts (S1, S2 and S3) appear right before the surge in transactions volume and apparently coincide with influx of new users. Trying to draw a parallel between hashrates of BCN and BTC I’ve faced an insurmountable problem since hashrate fluctuation in Bitcoin can be explained by introduction of ASICs and hashrate of CPU-mineable Bytecoin can only be affected by a change in number of users. All in all, BTC and BCN are alike in many ways while differences between them are strictly conceptual.

Bytecoin has been making a significant progress over the last two years, and it has one important feature to offer that Bitcoin unfortunately can’t match. Simply put, Bytecoin offers robust user privacy protection. Development of a user-friendly interface is something that most of the community members are looking forward to and that is what BCN developers’ team should focus on in the nearest future. It is also expected that BCN ecosystem will include versatile merchant solutions and payment systems. One more reason why Bytecoin stands out from the other cryptocurrencies on the market is because it has been around for over two years, which is almost a lifetime for the most of the coins.

It’s been exciting to follow the progression of Bytecoin since it is one of the most mysterious coins to have ever appeared in the crypto realm. I realize that my brief article only slightly opened that veil of secrecy that mysteriously covers this currency. I myself still have no clear image and I guess only a dozen people really has. And I continue following further development of Bytecoin since I know that it’s only the top of an iceberg.

SCOTCOIN 2EDITOR UPDATE – THE MIGRATION DATE WAS MOVED TO 1/12/2014.

16th November 2014 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Today, the Scotcoin Project announced that they are to phase out the existing ‘standalone’ SHA256 Scotcoin network and fully migrate to the Counterparty.io solution, as a Digital Asset, utilizing the Bitcoin network infrastructure.

Derek Nisbet, Founder of Scotcoin said “Following on from the successful launch and subsequent roll out of Scotcoin directly to the Scottish people, and with the ongoing interest in developing further solutions for Scotcoin, we faced a real issue with respect to maintaining the integrity of the existing network, as Scotcoin was built on it’s own blockchain.

Thanks to the fantastic innovations this year by Counterparty.io, we can now seize the opportunity to add SCOTCOIN as a digital asset into the Counterparty solution, and back this up with the power and robustness of the Bitcoin network.

This will allow Scotcoin to grow in so many new ways, which are becoming possible via Counterparty & Bitcoin including Multi Sig, Smart Contracts and so much more, as well as offering everyone involved with the Scotcoin community, complete piece of mind that the underlying network will remain robust, plus they will now hold a true digital asset, 100% confirmed and contained, within the Bitcoin Blockchain”.

SCOTCOIN 2.0 has a fixed supply of 1,000,000,000 Scotcoins and will be offered via Counterparty’s Counterwallet technology, as well as being immediately listed on their decentralized exchange and directly traded against XCP (Counterparty’s own crypto).

For everyone that holds existing Scotcoins, these will be swapped to Scotcoin 2.0 on a one to one ratio upto 31st December 2014.  More information on the migration will be issued next week via their Facebook Page with support being offered in their Facebook Group.

SecuraCoin Rectangle LogoToronto, Canada: August 21, 2014 – SecuraCoin has launched the world’s first physical retail bitcoin trade network specializing in servicing money service businesses (MSBs) and other brick and mortar stores.  Providing top-level compliance training and software solutions to their Agents, SecuraCoin launched on August 20th with an initial network of locations focusing on the Greater Toronto Area in Canada.

SecuraCoin, which provides its Agents the ability to Buy, Sell, Accept and BitZipp bitcoin (send to SMS or E-Mail addresses worldwide), will shortly be expanding its service offerings to include an online buy & sell service, integrated mobile applications as well as grow its retail Agent network outside of the Toronto area.

Offering in-person instant digital currency services and catering to both new users and veteran traders, SecuraCoin is taking the initiative of not only providing educational material for its beginner end user clients, but also stating it will be offering new digital currency retail services based on block chain technology that it is developing.

Not only is SecuraCoin providing services to its own Agents, it is also signing on independent service providers (ISPs) that will benefit from SecuraCoin’s digital currency management system, compliance training and integrated advertising methods in jurisdictions that it currently does not operate in.  These ISPs will have to register as money service businesses in their own local areas, and provide financial relationships themselves, but will operate under the operational oversight and branding of SecuraCoin.

Existing retailers interested in offering SecuraCoin services are urged to register to become an Agent or ISP at their earliest possible time as the typical turnaround and training period can vary according to the individual needs and AML compliance knowledge level of the applicant.  Currently, SecuraCoin has the ability to service both Canadian and U.S retailers as Agents, but will shortly be expanding into the European market as well.

SecuraCoin is a fully registered and AML compliant money service business and bases its model on the training and oversight of its Agent network which will operate under its MSB registration where available.  There are currently three types of retailers it provides services through: existing MSB Agents and Retail Service Businesses (RSBs) who do not currently operate in financial services, as well as Individual Service Providers.  RSBs will be trained by SecuraCoin to offer its services with much lower transaction values and limited options, but after a period of testing and operation, may apply for promotion to become MSB licensed operators offering all levels of SecuraCoin services.

The team behind SecuraCoin comes from varied entrepreneurial experiences including franchise development, print and web media, financial services, B2B/B2C brand development and brings its experience in retail business growth and marketing to the bitcoin industry. Its goal is to increase consumer awareness and knowledge of the advantages of digital currency technologies, make these services more accessible and help businesses integrate these services into their workflows as well.

SecuraCoin has multiple strategic relationships in place inside and outside the digital currency industry, including well known trading platform Buttercoin and others, giving it the ability to execute and scale on its service offerings quickly and efficiently.

Combining both a physical retail trade network and an online service will allow SecuraCoin to bring much needed mainstream accessibility and exposure of the quickly expanding bitcoin space to users from all walks of life.  Stay tuned for more exciting updates!

Today, The Scotcoin Project launched their ScotShop, a new initiative designed to encourage and enable musicians, artists, writers and other creatives to sell their digital work for download, payable, exclusively with Scotcoin.

The first product to be listed will be the latest album from one of the foremost Scottish music producers over the last 20 years, Chris Cowie ft Rai, entitled ‘Blip’, selling for Ⓢ1,000.

Derek Nisbet, Founder of Scotcoin said “We are extremely excited to launch the ScotShop and already have a lot of material from some fantastic artists, which will be added in the coming weeks.  But, we are especially grateful to Chris Cowie, a 20 year veteran of the music scene, to allow his new album to be exclusively sold in Scotcoin for 6 months, before he passes it on to a major music label.  We do hope this will encourage others to contact us and get there material listed here.  This will really help to build up ScotShop, and will provide those artists with some great exposure to new audiences in Scotland and around the world.”.

Chris Cowie, added “I really believe in decentralized crypto-currencies and with the advent of Scotcoin, this felt like the right thing to do for me. If this small gesture helps spread the word about Scotcoin, and crypto currencies in general, I will be happy. Hopefully by me doing this it will also encourage others to get involved.”

ABOUT THE ALBUM

BLIP was brought about by Cowie’s subterranean interest to make a full vocal album and Skotarczyk’s need to make an original album similar to Kings Of Convenience – DJ Kicks. Cowie,
Raihaving always been drawn to less obvious hit records like Human Leagues – The Lebanon or Killing Joke – Love Like Blood, saw this potential in Rai, who’s natural style is a less obvious degree of indie pop. The entire process required both Cowie and Rai to completely destroy habitual approaches to music. Breaking the mould and rebuilding from scratch brought some uncomfortable moments and much personal reflection. But determination prevailed and eventually they let the songs speak for themselves. By listening to the muses, the art then dictated the artists and BLIP took on a personality all it’s own.

Rather than strive for hits, they focused on the subtleties of what makes an album great. Because of this, there is much to peel back for the listener. While BLIP does have the traditional structure of a synth pop album and hints at an 80′s influence, it is far from typical. It’s message, though deliberate, is open to interpretation and will lead the listener to the cutting-edge of musical exploration.

SCOTCOIN 2As founder of this project, I wanted to comment on what I perceive to be misinformation being portrayed right now by the mainstream media and affiliated ‘political’ parties on such an important issue – please bare with me – This is a one time post – thanks….

The ‘point’ of money, or currency in the ‘Scottish Debate’ was always going to raise its ugly head in this discussion, prior to this ‘manufactured’ scenario in September – and I would like to contribute my 5 cents, not for any political or other reason, other than a concerned Scot, that has worked in the financial community for 15 years+ Nothing more! The potential outcome on ‘Scottish Money’ has always been apparent to me – it’s either backed by …..

1) The privately owned ‘Bank of England”, or
2) backed by the same ‘lot’, just it’s Brussels/Frankfurt, and its named the Euro – either way its a lose/lose with regards to progression for a, so called, ‘Independent Nation’.

On creating Scotcoin, I didn’t set out to ‘conquer’ the country – moreso, I just needed to prove how very easy it was to create a monetary system that ‘could’ work and be based on a finite economy (Ⓢ1BN).

To which, businesses and consumers, would know their inflationary/deflationary cost and could deal with this aspect so much easier than the mess of the current global financial ‘money printing’ ‘Keynesian economics’ based system.

Basically, create No Debt Issuance (Only Ⓢ Credit), Therefore, Create No Interest on Debt (Usury) = No Problem!. If a Scottish currency could be issued as credit, work in tandem with an ‘e-Currency’ and be backed with something Tangible (i.e. Silver coinage), then there is a real opportunity to create an economy, that is, not only investable, but also, able to flourish and grow, to become a leading nation, acquiring outward investment based on the monetary stability of the currency, and acceptability in the global FX markets.

In summary – A ‘Scotcoin’ (or similar crypto currency) backed by a tangible asset (like Silver/Oil/Agriculture), with monetary policy being issued in a form of Credit (Not Debt/Usury) from the Government (and not a private banking cartel) could transform Scotland “Overnight”.

I hope we all can see this… Thank you for reading.

BitStars_Newsletter_MegaWin_v2A Bitstar has been born as a lucky bitstars.net player sets a new record for the bitcoin casino, walking away with a mega win of 66.96 BTC on Sunday the 3rd of August at around 10:30 pm.

Monday, August 05, 2014 – A prize won on one of Amatic’s new releases Eye of Ra on bitstars.net has been officially recognized as the largest payout to date in this ever-growing bitcoin casino.

The casino’s record prize of 66.96 BTC – equivalent to $40,000 – was won by a lucky player who was trying his luck on some of the new games released just a few days earlier. In what would probably prove to be the spin of his life, he managed to turn a 0.03 BTC stake into a 66.96 BTC win on the slot Eye of Ra.

Eye of Ra is a new 5 reel multi game with a new exciting reel layout (3-4-5-4-3) that increases your chances to win while making it easy to follow all 720 ways to win. With a bit of luck the game brings about lots of bonus spins and it also pays out on any position from left to right.

The Head of Bitstars, Nikolica Vadaski commented, “It’s great for Bitstars.net to bring forward such happy moments but even better to be acknowledged for such a juicy payout. We work extremely hard to deliver online entertainment with big payouts and the fastest withdrawals. It’s a tremendous accolade for the site and we’re proud to be part of this ever growing bitcoin casino”.

We caught up with the winner Jon about this fantastic win and asked him a few questions. Here is what he thought.

He said “I could not believe what was happening, as soon as it happened I got extremely excited and realized I would have a problem sleeping that night. All I could think about was what I was going to do with the money’’

How did you come about this win, what exactly happened?

I was playing Eye of Ra, got bonus spins and all of a sudden all the wilds lined up including two bonus ones. I saw 180,000 X 600, 4500 X 800. I was making sure my math was correct, thought I was jumping up and down for maybe 6 BTC.

How did you feel as soon as you realized how much you had won?

I felt great, especially with the fact that although bitstars are relatively new, they were very quick and professional in the way they effected my pay-out. They really made me feel like a VIP player.

How did you get to know about bitstars?

Bitstars came across my radar in trying to find the best Slots, which in fact I have done successfully! This casino is a sure winner.

What is your favourite game?

cryptoCryptoNote was designed as a useful tool to help people separate themselves from the current financial system of total control and surveillance. The ultimate goal of the CryptoNote platform is the widespread recognition of the technology through the development and marketing support of those willing to take on the current financial system. Obviously, Bitcoin is leading the market at the moment; however CryptnoNote, along with the other innovative platforms such as Ripple and NXT, are pushing hard to be acknowledged as new generation solutions. The recently announced CryptoNoteStarter is yet another step on the way to making the CryptoNote technology universally accepted. To launch new CryptoNote-based coins, CryptoNoteStarter will help you through the necessary stages of development. The interface is implemented as a step-by-step guide, starting with preps and finishing off with a block genesis. For more details, please visit https://cryptonotestarter.org

Among the notable cryptocoins created with CryptoNote technology, Bytecoin (BCN) stands out as the first attempt at making anonymous transactions not just a marketing hype but a genuine and usable feature. With its launch in 2012, Bytecoin has been gaining recognition within crypto-community while taking the CryptoNote technology to a whole new level.

While a number of technologies offer an anonymous transactions feature, only a handful of them are actually capable of concealing the parties involved in a transaction. The most prominent of all is CoinJoin. The idea is that several users wanting to send funds co-ordinate their intentions by collating the inputs to their transactions so that a “master transaction” can be built. However, CoinJoin is incapable by design of offering 100% anonymity due the fact that Master Nodes (coordinators for the currency’s payment system) can be compromised by someone with sufficient determination and resources.

CryptoNote, on the other hand, has a proven case of being able to provide untraceable and absolutely anonymous transactions. The centerpiece of the CryptoNote protocol is its ring signature technology. This scheme makes it possible to sign a message on behalf of a group and while it’s clear that a transaction is taking place, nobody will be able to pinpoint the transfer to a specific individual. The CryptoNote protocol also makes it possible for transactions to be untraceable. Payments are split up between multiple one-time addresses that can only be received by the person who has the correct public key. In other words, whoever happens to be watching won’t be able to determine the amount of a transaction.

Many things have been said about the analysis of the Bitcoin’s blockchain. The money flow, wallet balances, the identities of the owners and many other things can be determined easily through this method. The ability to conduct such analysis is due to the fact that all of the transfers between addresses are transparent i.e. every input in a transaction refers to a unique output. Moreover, users often re-use their old addresses, which simplifies the analysis even more. CryptoNote however is designed to mitigate the risks associated with key re-usage and one-input-to-one-output tracing. Every address for a payment is a unique one-time key, derived from both the sender’s and the recipient’s data. Blockchain analysis for CryptoNote-based coins would be confronted with a number of hurdles, since one time addresses with mixed keys in ring signatures would lead them nowhere.

Simply put, CryptoNote offers completely anonymous financial transactions. Those looking to keep regulators’ prying eyes out of their businesses will likely turn to existing CryptoNote-based currencies, or use CryptoNoteStarter to launch their own.

Asmoney.com_-300x122AsMoney is the newest and unique digital currency system that has hit the online market and can be used as payment processor for Litecoin and Bitcoin because it’s an E-currecny system based on cryptocurrencies.

AsMoney is a Trademark that belongs to AMN Technologies Company. It was registered in England at 2013. Gintatus Vileita, the CEO of the company, said:

” We’re planning to create three main features that make easy access to Bitcoin , while payments are still private and anonymous. this three features are : 1) Web based access to make transactions with every device without downloading gigs of blocks 2) A secure and free payment gateway to automatically accept payments online. 3) A programming interface to automate the process of sending and receiving payments with access to payment resources programmatically.”

In recent years, many users are inclined to use cryptocurrencies against e-currency because the source of money is not specified in traditional E-currencies. If a user wants to convert his/her electronic money into paper money, he/she will have to sell his/her balance to someone or make a withdrawal via bank wire transfer. Although, Currency Exchanges are willing to buy e-currencies but governments can easily track money transfers due to their traditional nature, which caused the shutdown of Liberty Reserve system and enormous loss of money in this system in 2013.

On the other hand, it is required to have a Wallet service provider or pay large costs for services like merchant for online sale, mass payment and support in cryptocurrency systems. Whereas, AsMoney provides its users with all of the services of E-currency systems for free, while it can also be transferred from / transferred to cryptocurrencies.

Through AsMoney, people are offered with simpler ways of sending money with no need to share any pertinent financial information. It also offers a remarkable flexibility to pay with the use of their account balances, Litcoin, Bitcoin or any promotional financing.

execoinExecoin (http://execoin.net), the fast ASIC-resistant crypto currency, proudly presents the first open-source Electrum wallet with stealth addresses technology! After months of intensive development, the Execoin team has released its own open-source implementation of stealth addresses technology based on the Electrum-EXE wallet (http://electrum-exe.org/stealth). Unlike proprietary closed-source stealth payment solutions currently available on the market, the Electrum-EXE code can be audited in order to make sure that there are no security vulnerabilities or intentional backdoors . Integration of Electrum wallet and stealth payments provides unique features and offers more security, reliability, and convenience for payment transactions. Electrum-EXE wallet now heads the line of Execoin’s SPV wallets (Exelite and Android mobile wallet) and will be a base for a newer mobile Android wallet with stealth transactions support.

Privacy: stealth transactions and Electrum wallet are better together.

What are stealth payments? “Stealth payments” is a technique that protects the privacy of a recipient involved in a transaction. It allows one to accept coins using a public coin address while preventing anyone else from knowing your transaction history. When you receive some coins without using stealth technology all transaction information is open to the public, and everyone can track it in the blockchain. With stealth technology this information is securely protected with a key so that only the person involved in the transaction can view and track it. The Secret key allowing one to see the transaction is not stored on a server. That’s why it is reliable and truly secure. The only information that can be seen in the blockchain without the secret key is the time and amount sent, all other recipients’ details are cloaked.

Execoin’s stealth technology is unique because it is integrated with the new Electrum-EXE wallet to add even more reliability, security and convenience to stealth payments. In addition, Execoin’s Electrum-EXE is the first open-source fully functional wallet with stealth addresses support. While security of using proprietary closed-source stealth payments’ solutions may be questioned, open-source Electrum-EXE wallet with stealth addresses code can be audited anytime.

Why are stealth transactions even better with Electrum-EXE?

Improved reliability. It allows you to restore stealth addresses from a single mnemonic phrase that you can memorize or write on a piece of paper. If you make a mistake, you will never lose your data; your wallet and your coins are securely protected in a way that ordinary wallets simply cannot provide! And you don’t need to perform regular backups of your wallet data!

Amazing speed. Execoin is a fast coin and transactions are performed quickly. However, any wallet client needs a significant amount of time to sync with the blockchain. This time is far shorter for a lightweight wallet like Exelite but it still takes several minutes before it’s ready to use. With Electrum-EXE you can do stealth transactions immediately after launch, no more delays!

Freedom of access. You can access your wallet and make stealth transactions from any computer where Electrum-EXE is installed, since you can safely restore your wallet on any computer using your secret phrase without physically moving your data! This operation is absolutely secure; no private keys are stored on servers.

Highest security level. Electrum-EXE allows you to split your wallet into an offline “cold storage” wallet which contains your private keys and an online “view only” wallet that only contains your public keys. Your Execoins are absolutely protected by your private keys in the offline wallet on a separate computer that never connects to the Internet, and thus are not accessible for hackers’ attacks.

Safety. Your private keys, including stealth ones are protected with a password and cannot be stolen! Your private keys are not shared with the server and a compromised server cannot compromise your wallet.

What advantages does the Execoin stealth technology give to users and merchants?

Electrum-EXE with Stealth allows merchants to keep their privacy while still receiving EXE payments and coin transfers. In addition, it provides the highest level of security and protection from accidental data loss. It’s ready to use immediately after launch, so you don’t need to wait, and can perform stealth payments immediately. Merchants can easily add Execoin support to their payment systems using coinpayments.net or a one-click solution provided by C-CEX. Together with Execoin’s fast transactions, this makes EXE a perfect payment tool for everyday transactions.

Future plans and development of Execoin

The Execoin development team has many goals to improve Execoin and make it even better. We’re constantly working on new features, implementing new technologies, and releasing increasingly more advanced wallet clients. An update is in the works that will completely replace the Kimoto Gravity Well difficulty retarget algorithm. KGW has vulnerability, is too processor-intensive, and slows down the wallets; also there will be measures implemented to make Execoin an even more rare coin, and to balance coin production depending on the net hashrate. Our team is also working on porting CarbonWallet to Execoin.  In addition, we are going to create our own JS wallets for mobile devices (iOS and Android) with stealth transactions support.

Key features

  • Fast transactions
  • Scrypt-ASIC resistance
  • Privacy: first Electrum wallet with Stealth addresses support
  • First open-source wallet with stealth addresses
  • Variety of advanced wallets (Electrum-EXE, Exelite Java wallet, Android wallet)
  • Most coins are already mined (new reward system limits the inflation)
