A New Era In Crypto

New Era

Zucoin wallet app on phone - v2.2

A Ground-Up Crypto Rethink

Get more done with a crypto designed for everyday use.

It’s not too far away—we’ll give out access to Zucoin buyers immediately and trickle it out to subscribers of our newsletter.

101: The Basics

There are 3 main parts to Zucoin’s ecosystem.

1:
Token

Zucoin is the default cryptocurrency token on the Splitchain network.

It’s pretty flexible and can be used for all kinds of transactions.

2:
Network

Splitchain is a system network and protocol designed to fix many issues currently present in traditional blockchains (“layer 1’s” as they’re known).

We’ve avoided the “staking” or “layer-2” paths that most of the industry is going towards. We discovered there are many benefits to doing it this way.

3:
Wallet

The Zucoins wallet app is what you use to manage your Zucoins token and the connection to the Splitchain network.

It’s your self-managed hub for everything Zucoin.

What Makes Zucoin Special?

We’ve been working on this for a few years and we think we’ve got something pretty different and special. Here’s a handful of factors that make Zucoins and it’s underlying Splitchain network great.

1:
So, So Different

Zucoins doesn’t behave like any other cryptocurrency because it’s not based on any other system. It’s a clean slate. We don’t even consider it a blockchain. There are no miners or pooled groups of validators. Zucoins runs on Splitchain, a brand new distributed ledger system. And we think there’s nothing out there like it. So much is built into one package. Batteries included.

2:
Flat Histories

No long records of history going back since the beginning of time. That’s what blockchain does and we don’t think it’ll ever really scale the way it should—to stay decentralized. On the Splitchain network, only the last two transactions are cached by default. To keep regulators happy, you can opt-in for more logs as needed for your own network nodes or app.

3:
2FA For Better Safety, Built-In, Less Spam​

Ever sent a package or email to the wrong person? To solve this, Zucoins uses a two-way transaction system. The sender and receiver both confirm a transaction. We’ve completed audits and investigations from Australia’s  Austrac (anti-terrorism and anti-money laundering regulator) and ASIC (securities regulator). Why? Well in part, it’s because every transaction is peer-to-peer. You decide who to accept transactions from. Less spam and less annoyances.

4:
Runs On The Web

The Zucoins wallet app’s designed as a cutting-edge and simple progressive web app (PWA). That means it’ll run almost anywhere the web does. No app stores that could suddenly remove your app or charge high fees. That means we can keep things lean.

5:
Developer Friendly

Both the Zucoins wallet app and the Splitchain network have been designed to be developer friendly. That means there’s no new languages to learn. It’s built on standard and common web technologies. Many platforms require you to learn new languages. Why make things harder than they need to be?

6:
Heavy Lifting In Your Hands

The Zucoins wallet app does much of the heavy lifting in the palm of your hands—in your device that is. The Splitchain network is mainly used to cache results that your device does first. This flips the way blockchain systems work, where you send your info to a pool of validators, who process your transaction for you.

The network caches only your recent transactions in case the person you’re transacting with switches off their phone—the next person can still find that info.

7:
Keeping It Simple​

We’ve spent a lot of time making the entire process, from installing the app, sharing your wallet address, managing on-device contacts, to doing a transaction, all the way down to the nitty-gritty technical stuff as simple as we can think of. The aim is to save time and keep those grey hairs at bay.

8:
Expandable System

It’s a bit too early to talk about it now, but the Zucoins app and the Splitchain network are designed to be extremely flexible. The goal is to supercharge the protocol for developers and users alike, making it adaptable to all kinds of situations.

9:
No Transaction Fees

As the heavily lifting happens on your device, the Splitchain network doesn’t have to do much in comparison. This means the usage cost is pretty low—so low in fact, there’s no default fees built into the network or in the Zucoins app for doing a transaction. $0 transfers, that’s more like it.

10:
No Mining, Way Less Pollution

It’s pretty clear that mining is a race to the cheapest energy, which will be those who are closest to fossil fuel sources for quite some time to come. Staking is a pathway to centralized control, which defeats the whole point of Web3. Instead, Zucoin users validate transactions using a unique truth-searching mechanism, not a mining or validator pool network. It’s far more energy efficient and effective at helping users find proof of transactions on the Splitchain network.

11:
Self-Managed Data

Privacy is rare. The Zucoins wallet app doesn’t sync your entire app usage data with a central company. In fact, almost everything, including your full list of recent transactions, contacts and of course, your wallet encryption keys are stored locally on your device. The only thing you emit to the Splitchain network is a cache of your last transaction’s proof. The Splitchain network cache only keeps the last two transactions so it can give them to other users and determine if what you say you have is real.

12:
Fast 90s Settlement Time

While traditional blockchains sometimes take 40mins+ to settle your transaction behind the scenes, Zucoin transactions happen real-time and settle after 90 seconds. And unlike card payments that can take days to clear, this is really, really quick. Zucoins transfers can happen anywhere in the world too, no borders.

13:
Biiiiiig Numbers

Microtransactions are easy with Zucoins. Unlike other cryptos that struggle with anything more than 8 decimals, Zucoins goes all the way up to 32 (and over 100 has been tested internally). This makes it great for long-term use in tiny, tiny transactions, even if the coin price swings wildly.

How Do I Try Zucoins?

While we finish some important milestones, Zucoins is in limited beta release. The network has been live and operating since Feb 2022, but we’re continuing to focus on decentralization and cross-off pieces. To make this process quicker and smoother, we are prioritizing access to those who purchase Zucoins.

About Me
Rob

I’ve worked alongside the Zucoin and Splitchain project for several years and this place is a chance to share crucial, reliable information, in a different way.

MyZucoins was originally created by Pete, the guy leading the Zucoin Support team, back in 2020 as a place for community news, but to kick things along and take it up a notch, Rob jumped in to help in early 2023.

Rob helped out as an editor to double-check certain details and offer bits of advice.

This eventually lead to Rob joining MyZucoins and chipping out here too—all to help the Zucoin ecosystem grow and build a great community.

A brand new MyZucoins launched in March 2023 and has continued to evolve since, featuring highlights of what Zucoin and its Splitchain network can do.

In Nov 2023, Rob took the reigns and Pete decided to refocus on core Zucoin efforts, which is totally understandable—working on this takes a ton of extra time.

MyZucoins is an independent platform that offers valuable insights and resources to help other Zucoin holders navigate the complexities of cryptocurrencies and more.

We’re committed to highlighting Zucoin and its underpinning Splitchain network through MyZucoins, as we believe decentralization can lead to a fairer and more transparent exchange of value.

We also weren’t satisfied with existing blockchain solutions, hence the involvement with building Splitchain.

MyZucoins will keep the Zucoin community up-to-date with trends and provide insights into the technology behind the Zucoin and Splitchain network.

It’s also a place to experiment with different areas of Zucoin, separate from the official roadmap.

There’ll be tools for developers and businesses to use here too (in the works).

Join us on this journey and say hello!
