What Is HCash (HC)?
HCash (HC) is a plug-and-play blockchain that can attach to other blockchains for trades, data exchange, and more. It delivers end-to-end (E2E) encryption using zero-hash proofs, and the mainnet has been live since 2017. The dual-layer platform uses smart contracts and cryptocurrency to execute and tokenize onchain transactions. This sidechain solution can be the glue to hold all other blockchains together.
Who Is HCash?
Originally called HyperCash, the platform is maintained and operated by the HCASH Foundation. CEO Adam Geri, COO Andrew Wasylewicz, and Chief Scientist Dr. Joseph Liu lead the development team.
Use Cases of HCash
HCash uses two chains – HyperCash (HC) and HyperExchange (HX). The HX chain is used to integrate other chains into the HC ecosystem. This makes it a great blockchain for OTC trades, crypto exchanges, and anyone needing to connect large volumes of data through a sidechain solution.
How to Mine HC and HX
HCash uses a hybrid Proof-of-Work (PoW) and Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus. PoW miners produce blocks verified by PoS miners to balance voting power and network ownership.
