Using the latest in robust and proven internet technologies, we can overcome the scaling challenges of bitcoin and traditional cryptocurrencies.
We have evolved the core architecture of cryptocurrency to realize efficiency gains not possible in Bitcoin and other cryptos!
The following are some features enabled by our architecture:
Ultra Fast Confirmation Times
Typically under 500ms, never exceeding 30 seconds even with network at massive scale. Compare this to Bitcoin confirmation times of multiple hours, or even Litecoin confirmation times taking several minutes!
Real-time Payments With Minuscule Fees
Our ultra fast confirmation times enable real-time processing for merchants and buyers, enabling micro transactions at scale.
Unique Ultramine Proxy Agent (UPA) architecture that cuts end-user electricity costs for all miners and does not rise in cost or difficulty as the network scales.
Mining on Mobile Devices
UPA enables mobile users to mine on the go, from anywhere in the world! This makes Altacoin a true globally cryptocurrency that ANYONE can participate in!
Finally, the long-requested feature for cryptocurrency is possible. Using our network’s unique method of encoding transactions, mistakenly-sent or fraudulently acquired funds can be returned to the rightful owner.
Inexpensive Hardware Wallets For All Users
Users can elect to store their funds and private keys in a cloud-based hardware wallet and use web-standard authentication protocols for access at no additional cost.
After many months of work, we believe we are almost ready to launch. Please help spread the word by tweeting or sharing this page. We want to distribute our mining as broadly as possible before launch so that the early adopter base is large, so we can avoid coins being concentrated in only a few peoples’ hands.
We are looking for experienced crypto programmers and designers to join the effort. If you want to help, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to contribute monetarily to this effort, you can send crypto to the following addresses:
Litecoin: MVmFG1BXhJpKQt44KkQXF3Gkd792pbrKes (see here if the LTC address doesn’t work for you)
We will try to contact anyone who sends funds first when we release our miner for download!
Altacoin is not just going to the moon, we're going to Mars!
We have leapfrogged the scalability challenges inherent to bitcoin and other traditional cryptocurrencies by designing several novel new architectures:
