Skycoin (SKY) Foundations for the new internet.
What is Skycoin?
Skycoin is designed to implement Satoshi's original vision and fix the problems with Bitcoin.
Revolutionary new consensus algorithms
Satoshi originally intended the control of the Bitcoin network to be decentralized over hundreds of thousands of computers. Today, the Bitcoin network is completely controlled by three mining pools. Bitcoin is no longer decentralized. Skycoin's consensus algorithm is designed to achieve true decentralization of blockchain consensus.
Visit GitHub to follow or contribute to Skycoin’s continued development and deployment. We will be opening bounties for bug fixes, design and development in the coming months.
Launch of the first downloadable network node, users will be able to earn coins for powering the network.
The launch of our first applications on the Skywire Network: a decentralised, Redditesque, social media platform and VPN service
