Breakout Chain: True First Class Multicurrencies with a System for Mass Adoption.Breakout Gaming is a company distinct from Breakout Services, Limitada, the enitity conducting this coin sale.
All Breakout Gaming channels and games will be properly licensed and deployed only in legal to play markets.
Breakout Gaming will use IP blocking, gaming collusion detection, KYC verification,
and other measures to ensure full compliance with all U.S. gaming regulations.OVERVIEWBreakout Chain
is a global payment system with minute transaction fees. It allows users to send money anywhere in the world instantly and directly to a recipient, without any middlemen. Carried on a single distributed ledger, known as a blockchain, exist several currencies with different uses.
At the heart of the Breakout Chain
„Multicurrency" system is the currency Breakout Coin
(ticker: BRK). It is the Breakout Chain
currency designated for payments, issuances of colored coins, pegged currencies, and used to fuel our smart contract system.
One use case for Breakout Coin
is planned by Breakout Gaming (www.breakoutenterprise.com
), a company specializing in online gaming. To promote adoption of Breakout Coin
, we will loan 7,000,000 BRK to Breakout Gaming in 35 monthly disbursements of 200,000 BRK each, at 0.5% yearly interest compounded quarterly.
Repayment will be calculated in BRK so that all BRK principal must be repaid with interest. Part of the loan agreement is that these coins must be used for promotional giveaways only and can not be sold by Breakout Gaming. To the extent allowed by law, additional requirements are that Breakout Gaming must allow buy-ins using BRK, must allow users to cash out in BRK, must denominate ingame chips in BRK, and must fully cover player liability by holdings in BRK.
The repayment period starts one year after disbursement and continues for one year. Each disbursement will be locked in blockchain escrow using the deferred availabilty function called CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY. This marketing escrow ensures that no coins will be available until the time of disbursement. Upon repayment, the principal of each payment will be locked in multi-signature escrow using at least one professional and trusted signatory service.
After repayment from Breakout Gaming, the 7,000,000 BRK will then be available for new loans to promote adoption of Breakout Coin
. All adoption loans will have extended disbursement schedules, and coins will be locked using CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY to defer disbursement. This system establishes a highly controlled pool of funds that can be used in perpetuity to promote Breakout Coin
by essentially providing low interest marketing funds to businesses. The marketing escrow and repayment conditions ensure that the BRK supply in circulation is stable and virtually eliminates sell pressure related to promotional giveaways.
Alongside Breakout Coin is another currency called Breakout Stake
(BRX). Breakout Stake
owners have the right to validate blocks of Breakout Chain
ledger entries. For each block, the validator is permitted to claim a reward for performing the validation.DISTRIBUTIONBreakout Coin
and Breakout Stake

(symbol: BRK) puts the power in user's hands, enabling persontoperson transactions without middlemen, like banks and credit cards have. Users don't need to wait five days for processing, their accounts can't be frozen and the digital coins can be sent virtually instantly with very low fees to Argentina, China, or wherever users want. Sending Breakout Coin
is no more complicated than sending an email.Breakout Chain
is dedicated to advancing the cutting edge of cryptocurrency, using an innovative Multicurrency blockchain invented by James Stroud. Even though the technical side of Breakout Chain
may seem complicated, our website will make Breakout Chain
use simple for anyone with an internet connection.
Because Breakout Chain
uses a decentralized ledger to store transactions, no banks, governments, or other central authority controls any aspect of the payment system. The Breakout Chain
payment system is completely transparent, allowing anyone in the world to fully audit every transaction that has ever been processed by the payment system. Breakout Chain
employs advanced technological safeguards to ensure that every transaction is balanced so that no individual can spend money that isn't theirs or spend any money twice.

The Breakout Chain
payment system is unique in that it supports several first class currencies, each with different properties. This type of currency system is brand new and is termed a „Multicurrency". Every first class currency has the full support of bitcoin technology, unlike token systems such as NXT and Counterparty. For example, any currency on the Breakout Chain
blockchain can be sent to a bitcoin-type multi-signature. Unlike simple Counterparty multi-signatures, for comparison,
multi-signatures do not require cumbersome setup and can have elaborate spending conditions. Multicurrency systems have many other advantages over token systems, such as full support of stealth addresses for every currency on the blockchain.
The most important currencies in the Breakout Chain
ledger are Breakout Coin
, Breakout Stake
, and Sister Coin
. The properties of each currency of the Breakout Coin
Multicurrency payment system influences the ways in which the currencies are used.Blockchain Security
While Breakout Coin
is the currency for Breakout Gaming, Breakout Stake
and Sister Coin
serve to secure the ledger through a combined Proof-of-Stake (PoS) and Proof-of-Work (PoW) model. The PoS system uses Breakout Stake
as the stake, minting Breakout Coin
. This means that the Breakout Stake
money supply will never increase, whereas the Breakout Coin
money supply increases at a rate of approximately 5% per year. Breakout Chain's
PoW system produces Sister Coin
as an incentive to miners.
This hybrid PoW/PoS system, where different security mechanisms produce different coins, is unique among cryptocurrencies.Other Novel TechnologyBreakout Coin
introduces several novel technologies to cryptocurrencies. These include atomic currencies, delegated fees, fee scavenging, arbitrary staking relationships, and immaleable transactions.
- Atomic currencies
are currencies distinguished by the fact that they are indivisible beyond whole units. For example, Breakout Chain has a deck of 53 collectible playing cards. Each card is actually an atomic currency with a money supply of 1, making each card a true "colored coin", which is a unit of currency that has a unique, traceable identity. Because these deck cards are atomic, they can not be split, similar to real cards. Atomic currencies need not have money supplies of 1. In fact, Breakout Chain has a currency called Atomic that has a money supply of 10,000,000,000.
- Delegated fees
are necessary to send currencies from which it is not sensible to take fees directly. Good examples are the 53 playing cards. It is obvious that since each card is indivisible, taking a fee denominated in the card means taking the whole card as a fee, making it impossible to send a card. To send cards, therefore, fees are collected inSister Coin. Other currencies that are divisible (e.g. Breakout Coin and Sister Coin) or have large enough money supplies (e.g. Atomic) do not use delegated fees.
- Fee scavenging
is a system whereby fees may be collected in a block later than that in which the corresponding transaction was included. Because PoS stake earns interest, it does not allow stakeholders to take fees paid by the sender. These fees do not simply
disappear. They remain unclaimed until a block is solved by PoW, allowing for the PoW block finder to claim the fee. Delegated fees provide more incentive for PoW miners because they can mine any number of fee currencies at a time.
- Immaleable transactions
are transactions wherein the transaction ID (TxID) of a transaction can not be changed without invalidating the transaction. Bitcoin has been plagued with problems related to its transaction malleability. For example, the MtGOX collapse was attributed in part (even if disingenuously) to malleability. More recently, numerous denial of service attacks have flooded the bitcoin network with transactions that differ only in their txid, causing extraordinary stress on the network. In Breakout Chain, transactions are rendered immaleable by calculating the TxID from all of the transaction details excluding the signatures, then enforcing that the spender must also sign the TxID. If any entity tries to modify the TxID, it will invalidate the signature and propagation of the modified transaction through the network will stop abruptly.
One of the innovations of Breakout Chain
is what could be termed a "first class colored coin". Colored coins are single coins that can be distinguished from any other coin. They might be compared, for example, to notes of sovereign currencies (a.k.a fiat notes) that have serial numbers printed on them. Colored coins are an essential feature for a complete cryptocurrency because a colored coin can be associated with a unique, real world object, such as a land title or automobile.
As a proof of concept for Breakout Chain
colored coins, a deck of 53 unique playing cards was created. These cards were given to testnet participants based on a provably fair lottery. Each card can be sent to anyone using a standard Breakout Chain
payment, held in multi-signature escrow, or even sent using stealth addresses.Exchange Friendliness
Every currency on the Breakout Chain
blockchain will be easy for exchanges to add. For each currency that an exchange supports, it will need one instance of the wallet that is subscribed to unique ports. Exchange setup will consist of a single extra line in the configuration file: "defaultcurrency=TICKER" where "TICKER" is the ticker symbol for the currency they wish to control with the client.
Great pains have been taken to ensure "sideways compatibility", so that exchanges and other third-party service providers do not need to retool their workflows. This means that Breakout Chain
will be plug-and-play for all practical purposes, with the exception of the "defaultcurrency" setting in the conf file.Coin stats
