Time to get some more articles posted today, even though I don’t exactly have tons of time these days, but we’ll see how far we can get. The ShadowCoin developer has introduced himself to the cryptocurrency community, so let’s start with that!
As a lot of people still keep a close eye on what ShadowCoin is doing, the developer decided to step up and reveal some bits of information about himself. The SDC developer is the same person (together with his team) who built the encrypted messaging platform for CinniCoin.
The decision to create ShadowCoin was made because the team would have the freedom to implement their innovations as they saw best, and not rely on approval from a third party. If you feel like you can bring more to the table, creating your own altcoin is an interesting choice.
Even though the CinniCoin Encrypted Messaging platform was built by the same people who bring you ShadowCoin, they do want to stress a lot of improvements have been made to the EM system, compared to the one CinniCoin is using :
“Here is a list of improvements that ShadowChat EM has over the EM system we developed for Cinni:
Instant Messaging UI
Single Database – uses levelDB instead of berkeleyDB
BBCode (coming soon) and rich text display”
The ShadowCoin lead developer is called Rynomster, whose name might ring a bell for some people.
