The History of Syscoin

  • 2014

    Syscoin 1.0

    Satoshi Nakamoto's original vision for Bitcoin included a Marketplace embedded directly into the Bitcoin blockchain. The Syscoin founder, Sebastian Schepis, took that vision and built Syscoin 1.0, which included a fully-featured command-line marketplace for buying and selling goods on the blockchain, as well as other new features such as Certificates and Aliases.

    • April 16 2014: Syscoin Project announced
    • Presale launched. 1500 BTC raised, of which 750 was held in escrow and later stolen by Ryan Kennedy (operating as Moolah)
    • August 16, 2014: Syscoin 1.0 launched
    • Bitcoin merge-mining activated for a more stable and secure blockchain [First use of blockchain data as court evidence, in Ryan Kennedy fraud case
    • 2015 2015 Blockmarket Desktop beta version launched.
    • Syscoin becomes "Core" Coin Member of the highly-respected SuperNET organisation (now operating as Komodo)

    Syscoin 3.0

    The 3.0 update was based on feedback from the wide range of companies, organisations, and developers that used previous Syscoin versions for their blockchain applications. In this update, Syscoin became a fully-fledged blockchain development platform. Brand new features included the Z-DAG protocol and Masternodes to facilitate high network throughput (TPS) for assets, Masternode governance, an indexing service, and the Syscoin API 3.0 Asset creation platform.

    • CoinPayments launches CPS Coin on Syscoin Platform and distributes their coin to Syscoin holders via an airdrop
    • Other companies start to build on Syscoin Platform, such as Bitcab and Aibb
    • Syscoin partners with Peer Mountain for regulatory compliant on-chain e-commerce
    • Whiteblock.io releases official Syscoin network throughput results
  • Syscoin 4.0

    Syscoin Platform Tokens are now enabled with a further enhanced Z-DAG - a unique decentralized high-throughput transaction layer which also benefits users with Syscoin’s underlying Bitcoin-compliant security and finality. We implemented the trustless, permissionless Syscoin Bridge to and from Ethereum, capable of first-class integration with other platforms as well. Developers determined more efficient ways to handle non-value transactions such as aliases, marketplace offers, escrow and certificates, leading to a streamlined blockchain. As a whole, this version of Syscoin Platform brings scalability and viability for mass adoption, and opens the way for Syscoin and other platforms to share capabilities through cross-chain architecture that aligns with the ideals of Satoshi Nakamoto. All of this further defines the value proposition of the platform.
