Skycoin is the Most Advanced Blockchain Application Platform in the World

Created by the original developers of Bitcoin and Ethereum, Skycoin is the new fast, free, secure, scalable, eco-friendly, private and programmable cryptocurrency built to power Skywire, the new Internet.

What is Skycoin?

A currency for digital bandwidth, backed by the new internet. Fast transactions, no transaction fees, Skycoin is a third-generation cryptocurrency supporting a new free and open internet.

Skycoin is the cryptocurrency of Skywire. That means Skycoin has a practical application more than simply acting as another digital currency. The way Skycoin works is this: When you pass something along the Skywire network, you earn Skycoin. When you need to access the bandwidth yourself, pay via Skycoin. It only takes seconds to send and receive, with thousands of transactions per second.

What is Skywire?

Skywire’s goal is to make corporate internet service providers a thing of the past by giving the internet back to the people with its revolutionary privacy protocol. Peer-to-peer technology with a grassroots ethos, Skywire’s new networking protocol promotes net neutrality and sharing without blocking, slowdowns or censorship.
