  • What are the technical details I need to know about Syscoin?

    There are many ways to develop using Syscoin, including:

    • Leverage Syscoin decentralised marketplace features like offerings, escrow, certificates and encrypted messaging. The core library is written in Node.js (link to github).
    • Use your own asset/token. Syscoin lets you spawn your own customisable blockchain with parameters like interest bearing, supply, fungibility, and information colouring per token.
    • Let users interact with Syscoin through a web interface. Pangolin offers developers the ability to create a secure gateway between the end-user and Syscoin blockchain. It prevents the exposure of private-keys when interacting with a web-client. Use it to facilitate payment services, asset integration, or other needs.
    • Get access to API-endpoints. Use the Syscoin core library or SYSIO to request all kinds of information on Syscoin. It may involve Masternodes, products, information, or blockchain statistics.
