Many people in the cryptocurrency world are always looking for the next big thing. Whereas most altcoin developers will look at implementing new features, Korecoin is looking to build its very own smartphone, called KorePhone. That is not what this article is about however, but we do have some details on Korecoin 3.0!
The name of the upcoming Korecoin client release is called “Korecoin 3.0 – The Evolution”. A very ambitious name might I add, especially considering all of the non-client developmental projects that are currently in development, such as the KorePhone and KoreSurf.
“The Evolution” is an aptly chose name though, as the entire blockchain will start over in Korecoin 3.0. Have no fear, your coins will not be lost, as they will be swapped to the new blockchain through some internal process.
All current KORE balance addresses will be added to block 1 of the new Korecoin blockchain, but the amount of coins will not be swapped on a 1:1 ratio. The Korecoin developer hopes Kore3 will start at a much higher price compared to now, and the coin swap will be based on the coin’s value at that time. While this is a bit foggy for now, I’m sure more information will be released over the coming weeks and months.
Don’t be mistaken by thinking this is just a regular wallet update, as Korecoin 3.0 aims to be a real secure and anonymous environment. The wallet will still be a part of that environment, but it will offer lots more than just the ability to send and receive KORE.
Speaking of the wallet, we will see an entirely new layout once Korecoin 3.0 is released. Furthermore, stealth addresses and voice calls will be supported through VoIP, by making use of a telco gateway. Video support may be included as well, but that has not yet been confirmed by the developer.
On top of that, Korecoin 3.0 will feature an embedded secure browser which routes internet traffic over the Tor protocol. Secure communication will be available as well, as users can send and receive emails in their client through the Tor network. It will be possible to register your very own “@korecoin.org” email address.
Last but not least, the Korecoin 3.0 client will include a new tab pointing to an anonymous (decentralized?) marketplace, which will also run through the Tor protocol. Further details on this marketplace will be announced as we get closer to the client release date.
The KORE developer has plenty more ideas which he didn’t disclose at this point in time, and for which we don’t blame him. He did say that completion of all of the aforementioned features will take upto six months, so expect more information along the way.
