Privacy-Focused Marketplace & Decentralized Application Platform
The case for privacy
Over last 25 years, the internet has shown us that the only way to secure data is to not collect and store it in the first place.
At Particl, we’re building an open-source and decentralized privacy platform built on the blockchain specifically designed to work with any cryptocurrency.
It allows decentralized applications (Dapps) of all sorts to be built within a secure, highly-scalable environment and be integrated directly into Particl Desktop. All the fees generated by the platform are paid to the coin holders who are securing the network. Particl's vision is to foster a new decentralized, private and trustless economy supported by its platform and native currency PART.
We believe a trustless, private economy can be built without middlemen
Latest Bitcoin Codebase
PART is a privacy coin built from the Bitcoin Core codebase and is always updated to its latest version (currently 0.15.1). Capitalizing on the latest Bitcoin codebase not only allows the Particl platform to benefit from both Bitcoin’s stability and security, but also enables developers to leverage and easily fork any product, service and technology development from the Bitcoin developer community.
Particl Cold Staking
Particl Cold Staking is enabled by smart-contract functionality and lets users securely delegate staking powers to “staking nodes” which contain no coin. The purpose of these “staking nodes” is to provide a dedicated resource connected to the Particl blockchain and stake on behalf of another wallet without being able to spend its coins. In other words, it allows users to stake offline coins.
Particl's decentralized marketplace is built with privacy at its core and offers a low-cost, secure and scalable e-commerce experience. Designed to work with almost any coin, it uses several privacy-enhancing features such as default private transactions, encrypted data, secure messaging, IP address anonymization, metadata stripping, private listings and more. It is exclusively governed by the Particl community which also earns all the fees generated by the marketplace.
Particl is designed so that users can easily use and build decentralized applications that can then be integrated directly into Particl Desktop. These applications foster the decentralized, private and trustless Particl economy and are built using privacy native privacy smart-contracts.
PART can be sent as three different privacy states, each with their own degree of privacy and cost: Public, Blind, Anon. Each state has a purpose within our privacy platform and also provides the user full control of the linkability and traceability of their transactions. Particl is the first coin in history to deploy these privacy protocols on a Bitcoin Core codebase.
In the spirit of connecting many different crypto communities together, the Particl platform is designed in such a way that it can accept almost any currency using atomic swaps and third-party integrations. However, as the platform (marketplace, extended messaging, future Dapps, etc) requires PART to function in a private way (CT and RingCT), all incoming currency transactions are automatically converted into PART.
The swiss-army knife of cryptocurrencies
PART is a multi-purpose utility coin which has many uses within the Particl economy. It can be used as a privacy coin, but most importantly is required to use the Particl platform's features and decentralized applications such as the marketplace, voting and messaging, only to name a few. The PART coin is also used to secure the Particl network through Particl Proof-of-Stake and gives stakers a minimum yearly staking interest of 5%.Learn more about PART
