Ombre is a cryptonote currency with solid strong security,
privacy and untraceability features. Our mission is to enhance
the cryptonote protocol to provide a fast, secure and user friendly coin.
- Fast transactions
A 60 second block time increases transaction speed, without comprimising security.
- High level of privacy
An enforced ring-mixin size of 10 ensures safety from blockchain analysis.
- Transparent funding
An innovative developer funding system is build in the blockchain and ensures
long-term active development without requiring trust from the community.
We do not have a premine. Instead we have a project development
reward that causes coins to unlock with every block that is
found. The algorithm will start with unlocking 6% of the block
reward but gradually reduces to 0% in the next 10 years. In
total a maximum of 2% of the total coin supply will be unlocked
Q2: Android wallet
We will release an Android wallet which will use remote wallet
nodes to scan the blockchain for transactions.
One problem with existing Android wallets for cryptonote coins is that
they use close to 1GB of data (Sumokoin) to scan the blockchain. we will
solve this by allowing the Android wallet to send the wallet's viewkey to
the remote wallet node. With this approach the transaction scanning can
be done server side and this will significantly increase the performance
of the wallet.
All wallet connections will be SSL encrypted and official wallet nodes will be provided.
Q2: Blockchain protocol optimisations
The blockchain network communication is not optimized and, for example,
doesn't even use compression on large data exchanges. We will add
compression and will look into modernizing the RPC protocols.
Q2: Cryptonote PoW update
ASIC devices are available now for cryptonote. We will update
the PoW algorithm and make it incompatible with these ASICs.
