About BytecoinMake a Suggestion
Bytecoin (BCN) is the first cryptocurrency based on the CryptoNote technology and launched in July 2012 with an open source code designed for anonymous cash settlement. BCN protects the user's privacy with impassive and anonymous transactions. This is a completely independent currency, developing separately from Bitcoin and its forks. The basis for the creation of Bytecoin was the unique CryptoNote technology.
Since the launch, several improvements have been made, including multi-valued transactions and several security updates. In 2013, the original implementation of CryptoNote Java was rewritten using C++. On March 31, 2015, Bytecoin developers announced their roadmap for several future releases.
Bytecoin blockchain contains additional information not directly related to remittances: several blocks include the geographical coordinates of universities, educational institutions among other buildings. Blocks created since August 11, 2012, contain quotes from Cyphernomicon, Neuromancer William Gibson, and other authors.
