It’s due time to take a look at what KeyCoin has been up to over the past few days, as they have posted multiple developer updates. The anonymity feature has been reviewed, KeyOS is mentioned and lots more! Fasten your seatbelts folks, it’ll be a wild ride.
Let’s start things off with the review of KeyCoin’s anonymous transaction system. As this was requested by the community, user AtcSecure on the BitcoinTalk forums has taken a closer look at the code, and shared his findings with all of us. In order to properly anonymize transactions, the KeyCoin code allows for each transaction to take multiple passes through the cluster. As the entire protocol, including these enhancements, is fully encrypted, there is no way to gain any information by sniffing the network.

Two days ago, the KeyCoin team did a small recap of their accomplishments so far, and what they have planned for the future. Some very interesting projects are lined up for KeyCoin and its community, and you can find more information about them by clicking here. A preview clip of the custom made information video about KeyCoin has also been shared, which you can find here. The full video should be available at some point tomorrow.
Yesterday, a small update in regards to KeyOS was posted by the KeyCoin developers. A beta will be made available soon, which can be run on VirtualBox. No further details were revealed at that time, but I’m sure we’ll find out more over the coming days and weeks.
KeyCoin’s anonymity feature currently only works for Windows users. The developers are currently building the Mac OS X and Debian/Ubuntu Linux client, which should be available within the next 24-36 hours. Decentralized transaction anonymity is still a long term goal for this altcoin.
