Komodo Price Chart and Latest News
Published on Mar 31, 2018
Komodo (KMD) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency launched in September 2016. It has evolved from BitcoinDark (BTCD) and is developed by the same developer ("jl777"), but the underlying software was forked from Zcash and the new cryptocurrency runs on the SuperNET platform, using SuperNET's infrastructure and software applications. Focusing on privacy and anonymity of transactions, Komodo deploys a "delayed proof-of-work" (dPoW) consensus mechanism which relies on pre-voted notary nodes and which is secured by the Bitcoin (BTC) network. It uses Zcash's "zero knowledge proof" to (optionally) make transactions anonymous and untraceable
Komodo cryptocurrency uses blockchain technology just like many of the new cryptos of 2017. However, this platform offers much better security and decentralized hosting of blockchains. Because privacy is such a valued asset here, the team members of the coin use pseudonyms. The enhanced security is achieved using the Bitcoin’s blockchain ‘delayed proof of work’ technology. With this crypto, you get to enjoy multiple wallets and pegged assets. It is an open-source alternative coin and this means that transactions are transparent, private, anonymous and fungible.
Understanding Komodo KMD cryptocurrency

The remaining 100 million coins are mined through the proof-of-work (POW) algorithm.
