Xchange

Trade with confidence!

A peer to peer escrow service that preserves the privacy and freedom of those who want to trade one type of currency for another.

Xchange in-wallet escrow feature removes the human element and makes it possible for users to trade with no third party risk.

Coin: XCG

Overview of the project

The project is created by XCGtech whose main target is to trade with confidence in a secure environment. There are four wallets created: Windows, Mac, Linux, and Github. Recently the team has officially filed an application with the USPTO and now they have a patent pending. They now have intellectual property rights over the peer-to-peer in-wallet escrow service and its back-end technologies.

Project team intends to form a community-based committee that will validate projects’ software at the base level and provide feedback to consumers to help them make more informed decisions.

Technical specifications

Xchange is designed with two custom SPORKs (a mechanism invented by the DASH crypto-currency that is used to safely deploy new features to the network through network-level variables).

The first one, the Escrow SPORK is designed to disable the escrow functionality on client wallets if a critical bug is discovered, the back-end framework requires a major overhaul, or any part of the system is compromised by a malicious actor.

The second one, the Kill Wallet SPORK is designed to disable syncing and cause an error at wallet launch if the client version does not match the SPORK version on the network.

After many months of research, the team chose LWMA (the best algorithm for micro coins because it has the fastest response for a given amount of stability) difficulty re-targeting algorithm, the algorithm is coded by Zawys and was the best fit for this project.

The Masternode system this project uses is entirely different from what other MN coins use. They decided to make the MN as more of an investment system rather than a capital system. It was accomplished by reducing the block rewards and increasing the MN collateral. 50,000 XCG is needed to run a masternode, with this regard it makes it very difficult for someone to easily obtain one.
