Bitcoin is the first successful internet money based on peer-to-peer technology; whereby no central bank or authority is involved in the transaction and production of the Bitcoin currency. It was created by an anonymous individual/group under the name, Satoshi Nakamoto. The source code is available publicly as an open source project, anybody can look at it and be part of the developmental process. Bitcoin is changing the way we see money as we speak. The idea was to produce a means of exchange, independent of any central authority, that could be transferred electronically in a secure, verifiable and immutable way. It is a decentralized peer-to-peer internet currency making mobile payment easy, very low transaction fees, protects your identity, and it works anywhere all the time with no central authority and banks. Bitcoin is design to have only 21 million BTC ever created, thus making it a deflationary currency. Bitcoin uses the SHA-256 hashing algorithm with an average transaction confirmation time of 10 minutes. Miners today are mining Bitcoin using ASIC chip dedicated to only mining Bitcoin, and the hash rate has shot up to peta hashes. Being the first successful online cryptography currency, Bitcoin has inspired other alternative currencies such as Litecoin, Peercoin, Primecoin, and so on. The cryptocurrency then took off with the innovation of the turing-complete smart contract by Ethereum which led to the development of other amazing projects such as EOS, Tron, and even crypto-collectibles such as CryptoKitties.
V.SYSTEMS is a blockchain infrastructure provider with a focus on database and cloud services. Powered by the Supernode Proof-of-Stake (SPoS) consensus algorithm, each supernode is elected in a decentralized network according to Proof-of-Stake (PoS) principles, providing high performance minting, transaction processing and smart contract functions. VSYS is the native currency for the V.SYSTEMS blockchain platform with a multitude of uses including transactions, staking and minting on the network. V.SYSTEMS aims to deliver decentralized cloud database technology with high scalability, durability and performance. With Sunny King as the lead architect, V.SYSTEMS has already designed and implemented SPoS Consensus, a super efficient distributed consensus algorithm with the highest resistance to 51% attacks. The network plans to operate as a cloud platform based on modular systems that can support efficient and agile development of a vast variety of applications including but not limited to finance (DeFi), entertainment, social network and many more.
