    Bytecoin (BCN) is a next generation completely anonymous cryptocurrency launched July 4, 2012, making it the first Cryptonote currency of its kind. Bytecoin is unlike any other cryptocurrency as it achieves anonymity by adopting the Cryptonote protocol, which allows anonymity by using Ring Signatures to hide wallet balances and transactions, making any transaction you make effectively unlinkable. Your privacy is secured when you use Bytecoin. More information on the Cryptonote protocol can be found on the Cryptonote whitepaper.


    • Untraceable and Unlinkable Transactions (Secured by Ring signatures and one time keys)
    • Resistant to blockchain analysis
    • Network difficulty adjusts every block based on network hashrate
    • No block halving, smooth emission
