What is Hshare?
Hshare (HSR) is the pre-launch token for the Hcash cross-platform cryptocurrency. Hcash, short for Hypercash, is a novel blockchain developed with the goal of creating a bridge between blockchain-based (BTC, ETH) and blockless (BYTE, IOTA) systems. While many other second and third generation coins are sophisticated enough to allow for communication with other blockchains, Hcash aims to be the first to allow for transactions of value from block-based to blockless cryptocurrencies. As a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO), Hcash is self-regulatory and can operate under the control of a set of business rules without the need for human intervention.
History of Hshare
The Hcash development team consists of 3 individuals with backgrounds in finance and computer science. Additionally, Hcash employs an Advisory Board and Research Committee to help guide the project towards its goals. Hcash originated out of the desire to not only make improvements upon existing blockchain models but also create a “new standard of value.” Its ambitiousness paid off as Hshare obtained a billion-dollar market capitalization only a month after the conclusion of its ICO in July 2017. The main chain for the Hcash platform is set to be released in mid February 2018.
How Hshare Works
The Hcash blockchain is a hybrid PoW / PoS model. It is a sidechain which is compatible with both blockchains and blockless cryptocurrencies. The Hcash platform enables cross-chain communication which could not ordinarily take place due to the differing nature of cryptocurrency systems. This means users will be able to send and receive a wide variety of cryptocurrencies directly through the Hcash blockchain.
There are two distinct address types in Hcash: white (public) and black (private). These can be converted back and forth between public and private by the wallet owner. White addresses are the designated format for all funds and transactions related to the Hcash platform. Coins mined via either PoW or PoS are distributed to black addresses.
Hshare will be exchangeable for Hcash after the launch of the platform, at a 1:1 ratio. 10 months after launch, technical means will be used to destroy all Hshare tokens. The system-native Hcash coins will have the same total supply of Hshare tokens (84 million) but will contain the advanced functionalities outlined in the coin’s whitepaper.
Hshare represents an investment in a unique, first-of-its-kind blockchain which is a hybrid of successful components from several cryptocurrencies. In addition to providing basic transaction functions, Hshare can be used in a wide variety of other applications. Some qualities and benefits unique to Hcash include:
- Dual sidechain system allows unrestricted flow of information and value between all cryptos
- Protection of privacy with Zero Knowledge Proof technology
- Uses a hybrid POW + POS open-governance model to provide robust network security
- DAO governance system allows for real-time dynamic voting
- Quantum resistant
- Unlimited transfers
