CryptoCoin.com: Darkcoin (DRK)

Darkcoin (DRK)

Last Update: 2015-03-06 01:23 UTC

Darkcoin (DRK) is a decentralised, open-source, digital cryptocurrency project forked from Bitcoin in January 2014. Compared to Bitcoin, Darkcoin offers stronger transaction privacy and anonymity, while its software is more resistant to mining with specialist hardware. Better privacy is achieved through a technology called Darksend, a coin-mixing service that combines identical inputs from multiple users into a single transaction with several outputs which obfuscates the flow of funds. Darkcoin has also developed and implemented a hashing algorithm called X11 which uses a sequence of 11 rounds of hashing for its proof-of-work consensus mechanism. To adjust mining difficulty over time, Darkcoin uses an algorithm called Dark Gravity Wave, also developed in-house. Original announcement.
