About the Technology category

Technical topics including scalability, consensus, distributed ledger technology, and development of Qbix Platform and Intercoin technology.

Intercoin Technology is essentially based around four things:

  1. The Qbix Platform which helps communities to build and deploy social apps, and add payments to them similarly to WeChat, Facebook and iMessage, but in a completely open source manner.

  2. Kademlia, a network addressing technique pioneered in 2002 and used in projects from BitTorrent to SAFE Network. It enables partitioning (sharding) the network by community and even by individual token, by helping select a group of validators to watch and approve transactions for each token.

  3. Intercoin Consensus which is a way for Validators and Watchers to maintain consensus about transactions on each token, and gossip claims of any violations or conflicts among one another.

  4. Intercoin’s own innovations in technology and governance such as the Permissionless Timestamping Network as well as Coin Denominations and Change, which prevents endless growth of UTXOs.

Feel free to compare and contrast Intercoin with other projects, and ask about how it works. But please, search for answers in existing questions and threads before you post the same question again.
