Other Details


Digitalcoin can be used by any entity or individual. It is a decentralized project and so has no one that controls it. The project direction is decided by the community and users.
Unlike other forms of payment, Digitalcoin is not controlled by any single authority. No one can freeze your funds, impose a waiting period, or charge you arbitrary fees. Transactions are instant, cost almost no fees, and are irreversible.
