Komodo Platform will help the cryptocurrency space develop and flourish by providing security to third party blockchains, power applications with privacy features, and provide the means to achieve price stability in peer-to-peer payment services.
Anonymous transactions will be encrypted on the blockchain with zero knowledge proofs. No one can find out who sent a transaction, the value of the transaction, or to whom it was sent. The transaction metadata is encrypted and zero-knowledge proof construction, called a zk-SNARK, is used to prove that no double-spending is taking place.
Komodo blockchain achieves Bitcoin level security through an innovation called ‘delayed Proof of Work’ (dPoW). Komodo Platform notarizes its blockhashes into the Bitcoin blockchain. In addition, Komodo Platform can provide the same security layer to any other third-party blockchain. In that case, the notarizations are done to the Komodo blockchain.
Komodo coins can be converted into 32 different Komodo Currencies. These currencies are pegged to local fiat currencies, and thus maintain a stable value. Each currency has its own blockchain, and in that respect behaves just like any other cryptocurrency. The Komodo Currencies are easy to integrate into the existing blockchain infrastructure, and they offer a stepping stone into the world of cryptocurrency.

“Few days ago i did a security audit and source-code review for James and the superNET-org and we discussed many topics and potential enhancements in the general field of crypto-security. I proposed a novel solution which we are now working on. I do not want to reveal more more than is necessary. So far we are the first and only project to use this technique with cryptocurrencies. It will ease the usage and provide top level security for the average user with no IT-knowledge.”
