A dual-chain ecosystem
- A parallel, dual-chain ecosystem
The HCASH network has two chains running laterally, with each serving different functions within the ecosystem. These two chains serve to provide us with an interlinked, bifocal dual-token, dual-chain ecosystem that will help us solve interconnection, privacy and security issues prevalent in the current blockchain ecosystem.
The HCASH ecosystem will consist of two chains that include the HyperCash (HC) main chain and the HyperExchange (HX) chain that is derived from the main chain, but will work towards bridging communication between blockchains including BTC, ETH and others, and non-blockchains such as DAGs
We believe that a community-driven autonomous governance model can adequately fulfill the needs of the HCASH community, ensuring the efficiency of decision-making, and creating a more sustainable and inclusive development environment.
Under the hybrid Pow + PoS consensus mechanism, all PoW-generated blocks must be verified by PoS miners in order to join the blockchain. Having both miners and stakeholders participating in block production eliminates the possibility of hashpower monopoly to a great extent, while ensuring the security of the network.
HCASH implements post-quantum lattice RingCT protocols, and improves and optimises zk-snarks, providing clients who use our platform with more effective options for safeguarding their privacy in the future.
HCASH supports multiple post quantum signature schemes, and is compatible with traditional ECDSA signatures, providing a high-level security protection scheme for users in a future quantum computing environment.
