More in-depth review of the project

The native currency behind Komodo is the Komodo coin (KMD). Komodo platform relies on Zcash, a zero-knowledge proof protocol that allows a user to very some information without revealing anything more to ensure privacy and control over any transactions.

Maintaining a secure environment for Komodo users, Delayed Proof of Work consensus protocol is being used a little differently than dPOW of Bitcoin. This mechanism adds notarization on the network and ensures the stability and integrity of the blockchain.

Additionally, Komodo is becoming so much more of an ecosystem and a development platform rather than being a cryptocurrency that ensures private transactions and security. In relation to this is the established services of Komodo such as BarterDex, a decentralized exchange that is powered by the novel tech of atomic swaps, dICO, a decentralized version of ICO, and the likes.

Future plans

  • Komodo is innovating its core vision for better performance, eradicating bugs, and focusing more on fixing its security risks.

  • Rewriting dPoW for more efficient and effective performance. This design is to look forward to for its cheaper notarization costs.

  • June 2020: The scheduled release for dApps using the existing Antara Modules making Komodo perform faster and easier.

  • DataP2P a new file sharing protocol that is capable of handling a large number of transactions and messages per second.
