Darkcoin : Peer to Peer Crypto Currency with Anonymous Blockchain Transactions and an Improved Proof of Work System

  title={Darkcoin : Peer to Peer Crypto Currency with Anonymous Blockchain Transactions and an Improved Proof of Work System},
  author={Evan Duffield and Kyle Hagan}
Darkcoin is the first privacy centric cryptographic currency based on Satoshi Nakamoto's Bitcoin. DarkSend, a technology for sending anonymous block transactions is incorporated directly into the client using extensions to the core protocol. An improved proof­of­work using a chain of hashing algorithms replaces the SHA256 algorithm and will result in a slower encroachment of more advanced mining technologies (such as ASIC devices). DarkGravityWave is implemented to provide quick response to… 
Ring Confidential Transactions
A new type of ring signature, A Multilayered Linkable Spontaneous Anonymous Group signature is described which allows one to include a Pedersen Commitment in a ring signature and results in a digital currency with hidden amounts, origins and destinations of transactions with reasonable efficiency and verifiable, trustless coin generation.
A Survey on Anonymity and Privacy in Bitcoin-Like Digital Cash Systems
This survey presents guidelines for designing an anonymity/privacy improvement and discusses future research directions, and examines the studies in the literature/Web in two major categories: analyses of anonymity and privacy in Bitcoin and extensions and alternatives to Bitcoin, which improve anonymity and Privacy.
SPPBPS: A Secure Privacy-Preservation Bilinear Pairing Scheme for Bitcoin Cryptocurrency
It is proved that the proposed secure privacy-preservation scheme based on bilinear pairing and other cryptographic primitives is robust and can be implemented to preserve users and transaction privacy in the Bitcoin system by theoretical analysis and evaluation.
Block Chain: Review and Application
Blockchain technology has been referred to as a digital currency platform since the emergence of Bitcoin, the primary and the largest of the cryptocurrencies. Formerly, it's used for the
A Comprehensive Study of Blockchain Services: Future of Cryptography
The various cryptographic attacks in Blockchain and the various security services offered in Blockchain are reviewed to discuss how both technologies can be integrated to provide the best of the security to the data.
A critical review of blockchain and its current applications
This paper thoroughly review state-of-the-art blockchain-related applications emerged in the literature and a number of published works were carefully included based on their contributions to the blockchain's body of knowledge.
CoinShuffle: Practical Decentralized Coin Mixing for Bitcoin
CoinShuffle is a completely decentralized Bitcoin mixing protocol that allows users to utilize Bitcoin in a truly anonymous manner and it does not require any trusted, accountable or untrusted third party and it is perfectly compatible with the current Bitcoin system.

  • 2018
Compared to Bitcoin-derived blockchain, ETTF shows better performance on throughput, latency, and capacity in E-commerce and is efficient because the number of messages it requires is nearly linear in the network size.
Bitcoin: Technology, Economics and Business Ethics
This paper attempts to model the volatility of bitcoin using 5 variants of the GARCH model namely: GARCH( 1,1), EGARCH(1,1) IGARCH(2,2) TGARCH(3,3) and GJR-GARCH(4,4) and results indicate that the TGARCH (1-1) model best fits the volatility price for the data.
Bitcoin and Beyond: A Technical Survey on Decentralized Digital Currencies
This survey unroll and structure the manyfold results and research directions of Bitcoin, and deduce the fundamental structures and insights at the core of the Bitcoin protocol and its applications.


Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System
This work proposes a solution to the double-spending problem using a peer-to-peer network, where the network timestamps transactions by hashing them into an ongoing chain of hash-based proof-of-work, forming a record that cannot be changed without redoing the proof- of-work.
Mixcoin: Anonymity for Bitcoin with Accountable Mixes
It is demonstrated that incentives of mixes and clients can be aligned to ensure that rational mixes will not steal, and the scheme offers similar anonymity to traditional communication mixes against active attackers.
An ECC-Based Blind Signature Scheme
An ECC-based blind signature scheme that possesses both the above properties is proposed in this paper, and is based on the integer factorization problems, discrete logarithm problems, or the quadratic residues.
