Gaming Cryptocurrency HYPER’s Monthly Counter-Strike Competition An Exclusive Interview With The HYPER Dev

rotating transparent HYPER

What do you plan on achieving with the HYPER Monthly Counter-Strike Blitz?

The HYPER Monthly Counter-Strike Blitz is a way for anyone to play Counter-Strike on the HYPER Counter-Strike and HYPER Counter-Strike Global Offensive servers and compete to win a HYPER prize at the end of each month. Currently players earn cryptocurrency HYPER and points for fragging other players on the servers, and this monthly blitz is designed to give players a long term goal to aim for. The players ranked 1st on each server after 28 days will win 2000 HYPER, the 2nd ranked player 1000 HYPER and the 3rd ranked player on each server 500 HYPER. Players can register to play and see the current high scores at http://hyper.microngaming.com/hlstats.php

History of development?

The HYPER Counter-Strike servers were launched less than a month after HYPER itself was announced, and started as a part of the HYPER ecosystem where players could play to win HYPER by fragging players, spend HYPER on weapon upgrades and bet on the outcome of Counter-Strike matches (this feature is available now). Our HYPER Counter-Strike server developer Ignatius has many ideas for further development of HYPER game servers. He originally envisioned HYPER would sponsor huge Counter-Strike tournaments that would attract the biggest players in Counter-Strike online. With the rapidly increasing popularity of HYPER due to the new website at http://hypercrypto.com and the media attention we have been receiving on Yahoo Finance, Bitcoinist and from big crypto journalists like David Seaman, and more – HYPER will soon be in a position to sponsor premium Counter-Strike tournaments and attract the biggest names in the industry.

How do you believe the Counter-Strike Blitz will impact HYPER?

The HYPER Counter-Strike Blitz is a way for HYPER to give back to the online gaming community at large, as well as to spread the word about HYPER to as many gamers and Counter-Strike players as possible. The Counter-Strike Blitz will definitely help spread the word about HYPER to many more people contributing to the longevity of the coin. Most importantly it’s also great fun 🙂 We also have many more HYPER game servers and game projects on the way that I can’t officially announce yet, The HYPER Counter-Strike Blitz is designed to be one part of HYPER becoming the definitive online gaming cryptocurrency with a huge ecosystem within the next 6 months or so.

Where can people go to get involved in the HYPER Counter-Strike Monthly Blitz?

The official announcement was made on the Bitcoin forum at: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=624651.msg7966466#msg7966466 to get involved players simply log in to the HYPER CS or CS: GO servers. Details (including the player high score list) are available at: http://hyper.microngaming.com/hlstats.php

If anyone needs help they can drop into the official HYPER forums at http://hypercrypto.com/forum or the bitcointalk thread at: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=624651.0

We will be updating the official HYPER website at http://hypercrypto.com with more information regarding the HYPER Monthly Counter-Strike Blitz shortly. For now we are hoping people will get involved and have fun! If you are a game developer please get in touch and we can potentially sponsor you to develop your game idea if you incorporate HYPER. The key focus of all our future development plans is to ensure HYPER has a diverse and unprecedented ecosystem that provides many unique opportunities for gaming, trading and profit.

Cloakcoin Promises The Holy Grail of Cryptocurrency: Trustless Anonymity

CLoak Logo

 

Cryptocurrency enables users to wrest control of their money away from banks and governments, but without privacy features governments will often use their power to punish people who use currencies they do not approve of. Unfortunately, the crypto-community has thus far been unable to produce a viable system to give users complete privacy—until now. Cloakcoin, a new currency, has burst onto the scene with a promise to achieve the Holy Grail of cryptocurrency: complete trustless anonymity. To avoid the mishaps of its predecessors, Cloakcoin will implement a comprehensive privacy system consisting of anonymous transactions, stealth addresses, a secure multi-currency wallet with a built-in currency exchange, and a decentralized marketplace.

Satoshi Nakamoto created a monetary revolution when he launched Bitcoin in 2009. Bitcoin was the first digital currency to offer trustless peer-to-peer transactions. This increased privacy by eliminating the need to know the identity of the person you were transacting with. However, Bitcoin and most other cryptocurrencies operate on a public ledger, which means that although wallet address are not connected to specific identities, a careful observer can follow the money trail and figure out who the addresses belong to.

The Problem with CoinJoin

Centralized deep web markets are risky at best, but even if they presented no security risks they only offer anonymity for purchases made in their marketplace. Thus, they are not a viable option for the majority of people who want to send or receive money anonymously. To meet this remaining demand, several cryptocurrency developers have attempted to design wallets and coins that offer completely anonymous transactions. Darkcoin, SharedCoin, and DarkWallet are several prominent examples.

Darkcoin, etc. attempt to achieve anonymity by implementing CoinJoin, a coin-mixing protocol. Unfortunately, CoinJoin is not as secure as most people believed. For one thing, CoinJoin centralizes the anonymization process by using nodes to mix transactions. As the Cloakcoin whitepaper explains, this system contains inherent flaws.
Those nodes may be altruistic or evil, they may log and capture de-anonymizing information, they may be controlled by adversarial entities, or they may simply be poorly maintained by inexperienced operators.

Thus, CoinJoin kills the trustless nature of cryptocurrency by forcing you to trust the node operators tasked with mixing your coins.

However, the problems with CoinJoin do not stop there. Recently, security expert and Anonymous Bitcoin author Kristov Atlas conducted a comprehensive study of the CoinJoin-based SharedCoin. Using CoinJoinSudoku, an analysis tool he designed, Atlas was able to identify relationships between transaction participants. Atlas’ research demonstrates that anyone with the proper tools and expertise can spy on Bitcoin transactions made through the SharedCoin wallet.

Atlas concluded that SharedCoin offered “only limited privacy to users due to weaknesses in its design.” Following Atlas’ study, SharedCoin conceded in a blog post that their service was not designed for complete anonymity.

If you want to truly hide transactions, SharedCoin and other implementations of CoinJoin are not for you – they are neither sufficient nor convenient. SharedCoin provides a basic level of enhanced privacy transaction but doesn’t guarantee anonymity nor was it intended to.

Atlas plans to release the source code for CoinJoinSudoku so others can adapt it to test the security of other CoinJoin-based applications such as DarkWallet and Darkcoin. If SharedCoin is correct, then these CoinJoin-based systems will fail the anonymity test as well.

How is Cloakcoin Different?

Cloakcoin is a new coin ecosystem designed to replace deep web marketplaces and CoinJoin applications. Cloakcoin is superior to previous attempts at anonymity because it offers comprehensive, trustless decentralized anonymity to cryptocurrency users. The three-pronged Cloakcoin ecosystem includes anonymous transactions using Proof of Stake Anonymity (CloakSend 2.0), a secure wallet with a built-in currency exchange, and a decentralized marketplace.

Anonymous Transactions

To avoid CoinJoin’s security holes, Cloakcoin created CloakSend, a transaction system that uses Proof of Stake Anonymity (PoSA) to enable trustless anonymous transactions. CloakSend uses a two-phase anonymization process. As the whitepaper explains it:

At the time that transactions are created, the wallet will go through a process of “electing” an anonymization service providing node to start transaction processing. The election process is a process of random selection from the pool of available anonymizing wallets. The transaction output is paired with the encoded destination and the raw transaction package is passed to the elected node…

The node will earn a fee for this service, and then redeem the input by recursing back to the election process, to elect a node for Phase 2. The node then constructs an anonymizing transaction package and broadcasts it to the elected Phase 2 node. Again in the Phase 2 pass the originator and recipient are not recorded; instead, the transaction occurs between the Phase 1 and Phase 2 nodes.

 

Although the PoSA process adds a minor amount of latency to the system, it succeeds in achieving trustless decentralized anonymization for CloakSend transactions. In addition, Stealth addresses will allow for increased anonymity on the blockchain.

Secure Wallet With Built-In Currency Exchange

To increase user convenience, Cloakcoin also offers a secure wallet with a built-in currency exchange. Using the CloakTrade tab in the official Cloakcoin wallet, users can easily buy and sell Cloakcoins through the Bittrex exchange via an API code. This greatly simplifies the trading process for both new and experienced users.

 

CLoak BTC CLoak Market

 

However, storing coins on centralized exchanges is risky, so the CloakTrade developers are actively working on updates that will greatly increase CloakTrade security. These updates will integrate a multi-currency wallet into CloakTrade (beginning with Cloakcoin and Bitcoin) and establish a decentralized trustless exchange where you can buy and sell Cloakcoins from within your wallet. This update will enhance the security of your investment because your Cloakcoins will never remain on a centralized exchange, where they would be vulnerable to attacks from nefarious individuals.

Decentralized Marketplace

CloakTrade and CloakSend already give Cloakcoin a leg up over competing cryptocurrencies; however, Cloakcoin is about to release a feature that will settle the anonymity debate forever once the beta opens in about two weeks. Cloakcoin’s anonymous ecosystem will soon culminate in OneMarket, a self-regulated, trustless decentralized marketplace where users can buy and sell goods anonymously using Cloakcoins.

 

OnemarketCLoak One Market

 

OneMarket offers a decentralized alternative to popular online shopping websites like eBay and Amazon, as well as deep web marketplaces such as Silk Road and Agora. Like eBay and Amazon, you will be able to open your own storefront on OneMarket and sell your products to other OneMarket users. And as on deep web marketplaces, you will be able to buy and sell with complete anonymity.

However, OneMarket offers the added benefit of decentralization. OneMarket will not be stored on a third-party company server; it will utilize the Cloakcoin blockchain to host all the information necessary to operate the marketplace. Storing OneMarket on the blockchain makes it virtually unhackable because there is no single server for an attacker (including a government agency) to target. If the government managed to seize a computer running a node, it would not matter since every other computer with an open Cloakcoin wallet node would still be transmitting the OneMarket data through the Cloakcoin network. Moreover, payments will process through a trustless escrow system, ensuring that no third-party payment processor ever has full control of your coins.

You might be thinking OneMarket sounds a lot like OpenBazaar, the Bitcoin-based decentralized marketplace. Indeed, Cloakcoin’s OneMarket will operate quite similarly to OpenBazaar. OpenBazaar has the initial advantage of catering to the large Bitcoin community. However, OneMarket has the long-term advantage of existing in the Cloakcoin anonymous ecosystem. While OpenBazaar can offer a decentralized, anonymous marketplace, it cannot compensate for the lack of anonymity elsewhere in the Bitcoin ecosystem. People truly concerned about their privacy will gravitate to OneMarket.

Get Started With Cloakcoin

Cloakcoin is the clear monetary choice for the privacy conscious. No other currency can offer anything close to Cloakcoin’s comprehensive anonymization ecosystem. From its unique Proof of Stake Anonymity transaction system to its secure wallet that lets you buy Cloakcoins to OneMarket, Cloakcoin never ceases to protect your privacy. Cloakcoin truly has achieved the Holy Grail of anonymity.

Cryptocurrency URO Completes World’s First Commodity Order Using A Commodity Backed Cryptocurrency

25,000 Urocoins Exchanged for 25,000 Metric Tons of Urea Fertilizer 2 — Thousands USD in Fees Saved

Sydney, Australia (July, 2014) — Green Earth Systems Limited, Hong Kong (GES HK), a global broker of urea fertilizer, has completed the first ever trade of urea fertilizer in exchange for Urocoin (URO). The Urocoin, created and maintained by URO Foundation, is a commodity-backed encrypted digital currency based on Bitcoin technology, also referred to as a “cryptocommodity.”

On July 10, Rivaa Exports Ltd. purchased 25,000 metric tons of urea fertilizer, estimated at 7 million USD, from Green Earth Systems, Hong Kong (GES, HK) slated for resale to Indian Potash Limited (IPL), India’s largest government fertilizer body for urea importation. The initial transaction, originally attempted in January 2014, was delayed for months due to banking compliance issues between Rivaa’s local banks and GES HK’s international banks. The use of Urocoin eliminated these issues and resulted in the completion of the transaction within days, thereby saving tens of thousands of dollars in fees.

“With no setup or banking fees and interest charges, RIVAA and GES, HK are saving close to $300,000 USD on this transaction alone,” said Mr. Nilesh Nair, CEO of GES, HK.
To date, four major commodity suppliers have pledged to accept Urocoin as payment for urea:

1. Green Earth Systems Limited (GES, HK)
2. Urea Trading India
3. Crown Team Corporation, HK
4. CCL Pillay Group, SA

Urea is the world’s most widely used fertilizer and is responsible for more than 50% of world food production. Urocoin is an alternative payment method for urea purchases, which offers a number of advantages over purchases using traditional financial instruments:

  • Prevents fraud
  • Eliminates traditional fees and bank charges
  • Eliminates transaction delays
  • Stabilizes price volatility

For more details regarding the advantages of Urocoin transactions, please see this GES HK press release.

About The Uro Foundation:

The Uro Foundation oversees the long-term development and growth of Urocoin. The foundation has partnered with leading members of the global urea trading industry, all of whom have agreed to abide by the principles set forth in the URO protocol, a document open for industry ratification since June 2014.

On Open Transactions, Cryptocurrency MMOs, Game Incubator Funds, Trading, Gaming, Staking And Investing Crypto – An Interview With The HYPER Dev.

HYPER animated banner

Today Bitcoin PR Buzz presents an interview with the developer of HYPER where you can learn the number of online games HYPER has already sponsored and will continue to sponsor over the coming years, about the Open Transactions project that inspired HYPER, and the views and direction that HYPER is headed.

 1. What is HYPER?

Essentially, HYPER is a low energy cryptocurrency designed for use in online games, MMOs, virtual worlds and more. The currency is currently used in Counter-Strike, Minecraft, and Zandagort – a space-based strategy MMO game server we are running where an in-game free market trading platform for HYPER is being currently developed.

The HYPER team is also developing an original space-based strategy MMO game that will utilize HYPER as the in-game currency. HYPER is also low energy as it is now a 100% proof of stake coin. People who hold HYPER in their wallet support the network by keeping their wallet open – anyone with HYPER in their wallet will start minting new coins with their laptop as a reward for supporting the network. It is accessible, low energy,  and there will be no unsustainable ASIC mining races as we are seeing now across the board with many other cryptocurrencies.

2. Why did you choose the name of HYPER?

I wanted a name that conveyed a sense of high value, evoked thoughts of online gaming, and that also sounded suitably futuristic. Originally I was actually going to call HYPER Hypergold, but when I googled it someone had a trademark on this in the US, and I didn’t want to go down that road (just think of Coinye and what happened to the Dev team there with the Kanye West lawsuits).

So I settled for HYPER, which has turned out well as HYPER really does sound like a fuel for faster than light spaceships (which is what HYPER really is), and I also think HYPER is the first crypto to have the ticker and the name of the currency as the same word.

3. Why did you make HYPER?

I’ve always loved 4X space strategy games like Masters of Orion II, Galactic Civilizations, Alpha Centauri, and Endless Space. So I was intrigued and inspired when about a year ago I discovered an Open Transactions project Galactic Milieu that has been developed as a side project by MarkM from bitcointalk. The idea with Galactic Milieu is that people can make contracts with each other in Bitcoin and Devcoin, in a galactic context and between different galactic civilisations. The only problem with Galactic Milieu is that it is not very accessible.

For the past year the idea stuck with me, and I really wanted to develop a more accessible space-based strategy MMO where players could trade cryptocurrencies with each other for other in-game assets and resources the players have earned from their ever growing galactic empires. Creating a new cryptocurrency that could also sponsor the development of the MMO, as well as being the primary in-game currency, made sense to me. To create new and emergent trading opportunities, I also decided an in-game securities platform would be a profitable, fun and interesting idea. So it was in that moment of inspiration and connecting disparate ideas that HYPER was born, and it was in May this year I decided to take action and launch HYPER.

It just seemed natural to me to also go one step further and embed HYPER in a diverse ecosystem of as many different online games, services and MMOs as possible, which is starting to take shape now.

4. History of Development?

Although I have been mulling over the details of HYPER and the cryptocurrency space MMO for over a year, HYPER was launched with very little fanfare on May 25th 2014, on the bitcointalk forums. Looking back a pre ANN would have been much better for the coin, but this is my first coin and hindsight always makes things easier.

Since being launched 6 weeks ago the progress HYPER has made in terms of its projects and ecosystem is quite astounding. There are 4 online game servers that use HYPER as a currency, and the core HYPER MMO development team now has about 10 team members including authors, artists, coders, gamers, a project manager, sound designers and more.

Overall the community support and the number of people who have volunteered their time to help move the project forward has been phenomenal. Key contributors are also paid in HYPER for their work, and anyone is welcome to come and get involved.

We even have a Hungarian developer who is working on adding HYPER to the in-game free market trading platform in the space-based strategy MMO Zandagort we are running.

5. What makes HYPER different?

The vast majority of cryptocurrencies have very limited ecosystems and are for speculation only. HYPER is unique in that the coin is embedded in a complex and growing ecosystem of gamers, traders and stakers.

The biggest reason HYPER is different is that the currency is sponsoring the development of a space strategy MMO game that will utilize HYPER as the main in-game currency. Players will be able to trade HYPER for other in-game resources and currencies on an in-built free market exchange platform. Our Zandagort server will actually have this feature within a month or so, which will actually be a first for any cryptocurrency and any space-based MMO game.

We also have 4 game servers that currently use HYPER, with plans for many more games in the works and on the way.

6. Many cryptocurrencies now tout a stabilization fund, but fail to actually keep a stable price. How would you say your stabilization fund is holding up?

We actually haven’t launched the HYPER Market Stabilization Fund yet for a number of reasons. The biggest one being that many involved in HYPER actually would prefer the funds are used directly to work on the core HYPER MMO. Some people have also made the similar argument that Market Stabilization Funds simply do not work.

So we are still deciding if we should go ahead with the Market Stabilization Fund due to criticisms such as these. When appropriate I always try and take on board feedback from those who are deeply invested and involved in HYPER. We are also in the process of having the HYPER website redesigned and we will most likely remove the section on the Market Stabilization Fund while the community comes to a decision.

7. Current Status?

HYPER is a 100% proof of stake coin, which means that the network does not use huge amounts of energy mining as with proof of work cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. Anyone can keep their HYPER in their wallet on a desktop computer and be rewarded HYPER for helping to support the network. The current interest rate is 5% monthly paid daily to stakers.

This will last for 5 years before HYPER shifts to 10% annual interest paid daily. Counter-intuitively, many people hold on to their staking coins so that they can stake even more, so proof of stake coins like HYPER tend to have relatively stable and growing exchange rates compared to other cryptocurrencies (especially compared to pure PoW cryptocurrencies).

The funds will be used for further HYPER development so HYPER can continue to grow an unprecedented ecosystem of HYPER games and HYPER game servers. Bringing value to everyone involved in HYPER.

9. Future Development plans?

There are so many future plans for HYPER development it’s hard to know what to mention first. A key priority is the launch of the alpha of the core HYPER MMO, which is tentatively scheduled for June 2015.

Ultimately, if HYPER reaches a high enough market cap, a company will be founded as a legal structure for the management of the HYPER MMO. There is no ETA on this possibility, and it will be announced publicly if we move forward with founding a HYPER company.

Beyond the MMO, we have plans for HYPER to be added to many more online games and servers; there is enough HYPER to continue paying substantial bounties to developers who add HYPER into their online game worlds and servers. Increasing the HYPER functionality on existing HYPER game servers will also be a priority, such as the HYPER free market trading platform we are currently adding to the space strategy MMO game Zandagort we are running.

The HYPER website is currently being redesigned and we have plans to start regular HYPER Counter Strike tournaments, where big HYPER prizes will be offered, and entrance fees will be paid in HYPER. We are also in touch with a number of game developers and server admins who will be launching more game servers that integrate HYPER in the near future.

Future plans for the HYPER cryptocurrency wallet itself include built in irc chat, market data, decentralized HYPER exchange, and the main HYPER MMO itself being integrated into the HYPER wallet when it is launched.

Through giving HYPER bounties to server admins and online game developers, we aim to eventually have hundreds of online games and servers that utilize HYPER as the in-game currency. The key focus of all our future development plans is to ensure HYPER has a diverse and unprecedented ecosystem that provides many unique opportunities for gaming, trading and profit.

Progressive Cryptocurrency Global Denomination Launches Innovative Crypto Social Media Network CryptoConnecta.com With Android App

GDN Logo

New cryptocurrency Global Denomination (GDN) implements hashing algorithm X11, fast transaction times of target 1 minute blocks, DigiShield software and instant payments worldwide. Since launching in April Global Denomination has been accepted on six exchanges including Poloniex and Bittrex and voting is ongoing for Global Denomination to become listed on exchanges such as Mintpal and Cryptsy. Global Denomination has just launched their latest ground breaking project CryptoConnecta.com: a social media platform that strives to unite all crypto currency forums into one central hub. Crypto Connecta is complete with forum, live chat functions, social network, and a news centre. The game changing platform is now available as an android app on Google Play.

21 million GDN will be produced the first year with a total of 56 million coins. Global Denomination uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority or banks; managing transactions and the issuing of GDN is carried out collectively by the network with very low fees. GDNs´ global network provides extremely fast transaction confirmations averaging 1 minute. Instant worldwide transactions require only 6 confirmations across 6 blocks. Global Denomination also offers a 40 GDN block reward, with rewards maturing every fifth block.
Buying, selling and trading GDN is already available on Poloniex, Bittrex CryptoKopen, Europex, Swaphole and Allcrypt.

Global Denomination implements an energy efficient combination of the X11 algorithm and DigiShield software. The X11 hashing algorithm enables long and profitable CPU and GPU mining and ensures ASIC resistance so that mining will always be possible for regular computers. DigiShield offers protection against multi-pools and inflation as it re-targets the difficulty of a coin, the same software is used by the popular cryptocurrency Dogecoin.

Global Denomination has its own forum and encourages a democratic GDN community by allowing followers to vote on decisions that are in the best interests of the coin. The forum is open for GDN users, traders and miners to talk to each other; interact with the open development team and vote in polls for future developments of GDN.

Global Denomination is proud to present their latest project, social media platform, Crypto Connecta. Featuring a live forum, social network and news centre. Crypto Connecta is now available as an android app on Google Play. Crypto Connecta was generously sponsored by Global Denomination sister site Crypto-Auctions.com

Crypto Connecta aims to bring together all crypto currency communities in one place as a central meeting ground for the latest Crypto Currency news and discussions.

“We believe that majority of crypto currency developers, users, miners and traders should be working together for the greater good of the global crypto currency community. As for now each crypto currency has its own community that are working independently of one another. To assist in bringing together all crypto currency communities in one place we have been working tirelessly on the development of Crypto Connecta, a central hub for all Crypto Currency news and discussions. With this project we are encouraging collaborations between development teams from similar crypto currencies. We value the privacy of all members thus the only requirements for registration is an email address and a name so even anonymous coin users can get involved.” The Crypto Connecta Development Team

Crypto Connecta implements the latest technology such as SSL Encryption, live chat rooms for topical discussions, constantly updated live prices of all major cryptocurrencies in the activity stream and a responsive site for easy access via mobile phones; with extra features like a dedicated mobile menu for efficient use of the forum functions. Crypto Connecta will continuously feature guest news desk authors from established crypto currency news outlets.

Cryptocurrency GDN shows itself to be a technically advanced alt coin. GDN may very well have a big impact on the cryptocurrency ecosystem not only for the clever use of the X11 algorithm and DigiShield software, but also for the rapid release of ground breaking projects such as Crypto Connecta. Crypto Connecta is a progressive solution to unite the entire cryptocurrency community; consisting of over 300 alt coins and millions of cryptocurrency users worldwide. Crypto Connecta is the first of many GDN projects that will give back to the wider crypto community – the coin no doubt has a bright future ahead.

Newly Launched Cryptocurrency Cryptographic Coin (CRT) is Completely Anonymous And Features Automatic Interest Payments

 

CRT logo2

 

Cryptographic Coin (CRT) has integrated advanced technology inspired by ZeroCoin, NovaCoin and PeerCoin, as well as a system that deletes all traces after a transaction making transactions completely and fully anonymous. CRTCoin is already accepted on the exchanges Nix-E, UseCryptos and AllCrypt.

The maximum number of Cryptographic Coins to be produced is 100 000 000 (one hundred million). CRT is both proof of work and proof of stake, with approximately an 80% to 20% split depending on network power. The hybrid system of proof-of-stake and proof-of-work production allows miners and stakers to produce coins either by using physical calculations or using cryptocurrency deposits. Users just need to have a certain amount of coins in their account and included purse, which gives a chance for coin production. As for cryptocurrency features, there can be feedback difficulty and rewards (as in PoS, and the PoW) – meaning the unit reward decreases with power increasing.

CRTCoin is the first cryptocurrency that is a balanced instrument and it’s coin production volume should be equal to the amount of destroyed commission with time, and perhaps even exceed it. When mining the award for solving a unit is up to 8 coins.

CRTCoin’s unprecedented mechanism for proof-of-stake is CryptoBank – based the keeping of coins in a common wallet for new block generation. As with hardware mining the distribution of benefit is carried out according to the contribution of each participant.

After users have achieved a balance in the field “mined” of more than 1.01CRT (total for all deposits of their account) automatic payment will be made to the address of e-purse provided during registration. Such payments will be made automatically every time the users balance at Cryptobank is greater than 1.01 CRT.

Mining power indicates the power of mining of users’ deposits. This parameter grows within 30 days from the date of the deposit opening. If users’ withdraw a deposit before 30 days, they get only the principal amount of deposit, and all their further benefits will be revoked and distributed between participants of CryptoBank. If they withdraw a deposit after 30 days, they keep the benefits and their deposit. From the 31st day this device becomes red and sign “extreme” appears, that is an indication that this deposit is now the most effective for mining, as well as that users can now withdraw their funds in full.

CryptoBank is very, very safe. It is built in such a manner that even if your link will be stolen (which is the only way to get to your personal account), the maximum that the attacker can do is to return all deposits to the user’s account, or to make another deposit at the attackers own expense. The security of users’ deposits is maximum and there is no way to drain you of your funds.

CryptoBank works only in the anonymous TPR network, to exclude the possibility of DDOS-attack, and the ability to determine the server location on which the generation of coins is carried out. CRTCoin users must use TOR-browser to access CryptoBank; to ensure CryptoBank’s security is maintained in the TOR network.

With CRT’s truly anonymous cryptocurrency transactions, its innovative proof of stake interest payments made with CryptoBank, and the unpredented integration of ZeroCoin, NovaCoin and PeerCoin technologies: Cryptographic Coin is a true standout in the increasingly crowded cryptocurrency space.
