PROJECT OVERVIEW.

Signatum is a revolutionary, privacy oriented crypto-coin designed to be easily integrated into payment platforms, exchanges, and marketplaces.

It was introduced with the SkunkHash Raptor algorithm to enable strong ASIC-resistance during the proof of work phase and encourage fairness for miners and investors alike by driving broad coin distribution and ownership.

Signatum then switched to a full Proof of Stake system where 5% of staked coins are accumulated annually with payouts occurring every 5 minutes.

 

 

BACKGROUND.

Signatum SIGTThe internet is a continuously evolving community. Today’s innovations become yesterday’s history. The right to anonymous internet access is regularly challenged and is necessary to protect. The Signatum project offers full anonymity to users as a free selected service by offering completely anonymous nodes that do not track or forward origin IP addresses while utilizing TOR exit nodes to protect themselves.

 

 

USE CASES.

  • A marketplace that will enable people and companies to sell products and services around the world using Signatum as a currency.
  • Crowdfunding Platform. Signatum aims to create a fair and balanced crowdfunding platform, where investors and entrepreneurs can raise funds for their projects, communicate business objectives and provide updates on project status.
  • Exchange. A dedicated Signatum exchange will be created where users can buy and sell Signatum.
  • Payments. Through the SignatumPay feature and Signatum Web Wallet, SIGT is easily accessible for transactions from anywhere in the world.

SIMILAR PROJECTS.

Verge.

Verge is a decentralized currency designed for users who value privacy. It improves upon the original Bitcoin blockchain by using multiple anonymity-centric networks such as Tor and I2P. The IP addresses of the users are obfuscated and the transactions are completely untraceable. It utilizes multi-algorithm mining support to improve security and provide equal distribution of coins to miners.

Transaction speeds are ultra-fast compared to other coins. Simple Payment Verification (SPV) technology allows average transaction confirmation times to drop to ~5 seconds.

Torcoin.

TorCoin is a new cryptocurrency which has roots in the TOR network, well-known for its anonymity. This new, anonymous cryptocurrency uses the X11 proof-of-work consensus which enables miners to support the TorCoin network.

As TOR is fully integrated with TorCoin, potential attackers are not able to find out who is using the currency, and there is no way for TorCoin users to know the physical location of another user’s node. The network always re-routes user’s connection to other TorCoin nodes that run TOR.

The developers intend to use a proof-of-work algorithm, and then after two years, to switch to proof-of-stake, when there should be a small number of coins issued annually. Staking would be 5% per year. Proof-of-stake is a system that can prevent centralized mining tools which could undermine bitcoin with a 51% attack.
