Bitcoin Minting Protocol

Upvotes 12 PH Page >

Background

ColoredCoins started in 2013 as method to push metadata to the Bitcoin blockchain, and evolved over the years to a vibrant ecosystem for digital currencies.

As the open source community continues to develop, a consortium of stake-holders has formed with the realization that the blockchain movement will transform the way we do business in the future and that this revolution, much like the internet, will happen after standards will form around every layer of the stack.

The ColoredCoins project taps into the biggest and the most successful crypto-currency ecosystem in the world, Bitcoin, and creates a blockchain agnostic framework for digital-currencies that will apply those best practices to traditional finance.

Our Partners
  • Issuance dasboard

    We created an easy to use open source issuance dashboard that allows issuers to manage the currency distribution in the system

  • Wallet

    A fundamental part of a functioning economy is the mobile wallet, we provide a ColoredCoins aware Copay wallet

  • An open source block explorer allows public access to the blockchain and provide infomation to about currency distribution, transactions and holders of the currencies.

Digital Currency Layer

  • API's

    All our tools are wrapped around a powerful and easy to use API/SDK that is available together with our ColoredCoins node

  • Identity

    A key part of an open source banking infrastructure is a friendly way allowing consumers to identify themselves and provide tools for client side private key management - Our stack is agnostic to digital identity protocols and looking forward to work with partners on promoting a future of digital KYC

  • Payment channels

    A digital currency platform has to provide an architecture that can scale and outperform existing players. We released a demo implementation of a Lightning network payment hub that potentially allows us to achieve industry leading scalability

Blockchain Agnostic

  • Bitcoin

    The Bitcoin blockchain is the biggest and the most battle tested blockchain in the world. It has also the most mature eco-system for digital currencies, this is the reason all of our tools and protocols are Bitcoin blockchain based. By paying miner fees we allow users to "rent" security services for their assets from the Bitcoin blockchain.

  • Multichain

    While our infrastructure is Bitcoin based most of our code can easily run on a "private" blockchain by deploying it on private bitcoin based ledgers like Multichain

  • Hyperledger

    Hyperledger is an open source community that is comprised out of 100+ global enterprises and managed under the Linux foundation to build the standard for business transactions over the internet. ColoredCoins has joined the Hyperledger project as an associate open source community to promote interoperability between our eco-systems.

Ethereum

Ethereum

Ethereum is becoming the industry standard for smart contacts technology, it's also one of the only blockchain technogies that has adoption both by permission-less ledger advocates and by institutional and corporate entities. This puts Ethereum in a very relevant position as a bridge between ecosystems - as such it is researched by our team to understand how to add support for it. More info about Ethereum>
