Why DigiByte? (Feb 2020 edition)

Banner picture so it shows on the main page…

1/ What got me in to DGB: Philanthropy

We have a generous community. We’re not the biggest (though we’re possibly the loudest) but many members are quite generous. I’m reminded of the story of the Widow’s Might, with some of our members having very little but giving so generously out of that. We also have some people who have the capacity to fund larger sums, and I’m grateful for all of it that the community gives.

2/ MultiShield: MultiAlgo DigiShield

I had been looking in to Dogecoin at the time in early 2014 and at the time the DigiByte developers had just implemented DigiShield. Continuing on from #1 above, they were also helped the Dogecoin developers to implement it a short while after, keeping Dogecoin alive when it was struggling with a stalling blockchain due to insanely large difficulty swings.

3/ Forward-thinking nature

DigiByte isn’t JUST about sending value from me to you. I mean sure, it excels at that better than most others, but that’s not all you can do with a blockchain.

  • ProgPoW algorithm replacement for GPU-focused mining
  • RandomX algorithm replacement for CPU-focused mining
  • and Schnorr Signatures for a number of reasons (See the video)!

In closing

These aren’t all of the reasons why you should be bullish on DigiByte
