Digging deeper

Revolutionary new consensus algorithm

Satoshi originally intended 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.

We built Skycoin to compete with credit cards and services like AliPay/Apple Pay. Transactions happen in seconds, not minutes.


Skycoin makes it impossible to trace transactions by mixing transactions from multiple wallets to increase privacy using the CoinJoin protocol.


Skycoin is more secure because it does not rely upon the good will of miners, it cannot be 51% attacked.
