Who are we?
 
ILCoin is a modern alternative to Bitcoin developed by R&G GmbH, using SHA-256 encryption technology. ILCoin is not dependent on the present banking system. It has its own independent value. There are 2.5 billion ILCoin available. Over 80 000 people use ILCoin; mostly residing in Asian countries such as Vietnam and S. Korea. We are looking to expand this audience greatly.

ILCoin Official Website: https://ilcoincrypto.com/

What makes us different?

In a market saturated with forgotten altcoins, ILCoin is always upgrading its source code with the latest technologies and developments to offer users the newest, most secure version of software possible.

The SHA-256 Smart Contract system is in development and will be released sometime in 2018.
 
Our Blockchain and Consensus Model

ILCoin Blockchain Explorer: https://ilcoinexplorer.com
Average Block Time: 6 – 15 minutes
We have enough hashing power to make block time much less, but as we will now explain, we choose not to forge blocks necessarily.

ILCoin uses Proof-of-Work consensus, however, we do not open our doors to let anyone mine. Why? By refuting other miners, we eliminate many of the negative aspects of the normal POW model.

  • Cost Effective – Our closed mining network is what allows ILCoin to ease off of the processing power if few transactions are being made and to amp it up in times of high traffic. More power means more blocks being processed in less time. Even during times of low traffic, our transaction processing time doesn’t average more than 15 minutes.
  • Cost Stability – For that same reason, we do not greedily burn through our mining equipment trying to compete for new blocks and their rewards. Then, take those block rewards and sell them to the highest bidder trying to gain back the money we spent on electricity and equipment maintenance.
  • 51% of What? – One of the biggest debilities of Proof-of-Work is considered the 51% attack. If there are no competing miners, there is no one who can corrupt the Blockchain by using more processing power. Developing and maintaining a cryptocurrency requires a huge investment of time and money. By centralizing the mining, there isn’t a distributed consensus, but to falsify any aspect of a block would be to harm ourselves, our coin, and our investment.
  • Security – One of the biggest disputes of POW vs. POS involves the security of the cryptocurrency. As mentioned above, without a 51% attack, there isn’t a risk of any entity inserting incorrect information into our data.
  • Green POW – As mentioned, we only process transactions with as much mining power as is necessary. This severely lessens our environmental footprint versus other Proof-of-Work communities. We have also been researching the best forms of solar and wind energy for implement in our mining installation and lessen our footprint further.

As you can see, ILCoin uses a Proof-of-Work consensus algorithm but by restricting mining nodes, we make our cryptocurrency secure, cost effective, and stable. In doing so, we are able to take many of the positive aspects of Proof-of-Stake and apply them to our system of forging blocks.

Thanks to the centralized nature of ILCoin mining, developmental work on the blockchain, the wallet and the explorer is a continuous effort kept under tight control. We will be the first blockchain with SHA-256 technology to be able to create Smart Contracts. The ILCoin development team has successfully increased the block size to 200 MB making it possible to execute an almost infinite number of transactions in seconds with virtually no costs or fees. The system is already capable of handling up to 5.9 million transactions per second, and it is compatible with today’s crypto platforms.

ILCoin’s Blockchain is completely anonymous. If you know the wallet address, you can view the transactions. However, if you do not, you cannot simply peruse around and see what transactions and quantities go where.

Our Wallets

ILCoin can be safely stored in wallets built for the cloud, Android, OSX and PC and it can be transferred directly to anyone instantly at virtually no cost - without banks, without chargebacks.

The Goal for ILCoin

In an ever-increasing market of cryptocurrencies, what sets the different cryptocurrencies apart (disregarding sales marketing) is the amount of development that goes into each technology. The majority of cryptocurrencies are next-to-forgotten when it comes to developmental and technological improvements. ILCoin is one of the minority of cryptocurrencies that continually improve upon the technology.

ILCoin is being developed into a globally recognised cryptocurrency which will be accepted by tens of thousands of merchants - product and service providers - in different regions and countries at an international level. As ILCoin is supported by a fast-growing number of customers, merchants and investors, its price on open exchanges is set to grow significantly.

We have the goal of making ILCoin available all over the world through ATM services. Our intention is to allow small and medium business to trade easily and cost-effectively using our cryptocurrency. The vision is to make ILCoin available to everyone in the world so that they can enjoy privacy and profit from economic opportunities. The foundations of this new economic community have been laid.

SMART CONTRACTS

With the closing of 2017 and a successful ICO under our belts, we begin development on the SHA-256 Smart Contract System that will be in place before the closing of 2018. Let us take a brief moment to describe in a simple way how Smart Contracts work:

The term "smart" describes the ability of an electronically signed agreement (contract) to execute itself once the predetermined requirements have been fulfilled. Two parties agree to a task to be completed and an amount of cryptocurrency to be interchanged once that task is done; these are the requirements of the electronic agreement. Automatically, an amount of cryptocurrency is transferred and the Smart Contract fulfils itself. There can be other factors that come into play when designing Smart Contracts such as multiple requirements, multiple payments to be sent at intervals, time limits, etc. It sounds simple but coding for Smart Contracts is intensive.

Smart Contracts may be programmed to be used with many situations including: Property, Financial Services, Credit Enforcement, Copywrite Prevention, and much more!

THE EVER-CHANGING PRICE

Cryptocurrency prices go up because more people want to buy than sell.  When this happens, they begin to bid higher prices than the cryptocurrency has been currently trading.  On the other side of the same coin (pun intended), cryptocurrency prices go down because more people want to sell than buy.  In order to quickly sell their shares, they are willing to accept a lower price. The same holds true for any commodity of anything valuable since the dawn of trading and is how our stock market has functioned since its inception years and years ago.

With cryptocurrency, almost everything rises and falls like the tide. But what is pulling the tide? Bitcoin (BTC) is the enormous gravitational force behind the ebb and flow. When it pulls upward, most all of the cryptocurrencies (including our beloved ILCoin) get pulled up with it. And when it pushes down, most also get drug down with it.

WHAT IS A CRYPTOCURRENCY?

Cryptocurrency is money 2.0; or rather a form of digital fiat currency. Why is it like fiat currency? It has no physical value itself; it just represents a value. Even fiat currency has more of a physical value than cryptocurrency. Did you know if you added up all the value of every U.S. penny together, it costs more to produce and use them than all of their value put together? What determines the value of a cryptocurrency (or any fiat currency, for that matter)? Supply and demand… it is worth what people are willing to pay for it.

So why use cryptocurrency and not a traditional, physical fiat currency? It has many advantages over traditional money. To name a few:  there are no central banks determining its value and controlling the flow of its creation; countries are not involved in determining a cryptocurrency value so one nation’s economy cannot affect it dramatically; it has the lowest transfer fees which are unaffected by country borders or distance.

There are even many more advantages to having and using cryptocurrency. Like it or not, cryptocurrency is the future of money. What is the disadvantage? Cryptocurrency is still in its early stages of use and, therefore, is not accepted everywhere. I bet you would be hard-pressed to find someone who hasn’t heard of a US Dollar. But to find someone who hasn’t heard of Bitcoin or ILCoin, you need only ask around on your neighbourhood block.

IS BITCOIN A SCAM?

At the time of writing this article, http://www.debate.org shows 54% of people say “yes” Bitcoin is a scam.

Imagine for a moment that the government issued a voucher that had a defined value; a fiat currency, if you will. Then, after a time, the government says they do not recognize that fiat currency as having value and anything of value that you were to have traded to obtain the voucher will have been lost. Have you tried entering a bank recently and putting a fistful of fifty-five-dollar Continentals (1) into your bank account?

Now let us consider Bitcoin. No one person controls Bitcoin; it is owned by countless people across a great number of countries. For it to become a scam, each person in every participating country who owns Bitcoin would have to agree that it holds no value; thereby losing all money they invested in Bitcoin. The major difference between the government example and Bitcoin being that the government can control the value of the voucher completely by issuing no money to investors. As long as there is a demand for Bitcoin, there will be value.

WHAT MAKES A CRYPTOCURRENCY GOOD?

There is essentially one difference that makes a cryptocurrency stand out among the rest: development. This holds true for every cryptocurrency since the original Bitcoin. Bitcoin is the only different, successful cryptocurrency because it was developed by the community that believed in it and its potential. Remember in 2010 when the first pizza purchased with cryptocurrency was bought for 10 000 Bitcoin? That was a major turning point for Bitcoin because everyone who, before that purchase, only saw Bitcoin as being ones and zeros on a computer screen now realized that cryptocurrency could be used. But it didn’t get to the point of being able to purchase a pizza overnight. It had a whole community of loyal developers who believed in Bitcoin working to make it become something!

Ethereum (ETH) is another great example. You could read the changelog for a very long time to see all of the development that has gone into building the cryptocurrency into what it has become today and, at the time of writing this article, Ethereum (ETH) is worth $750 each.

WHAT HAPPENED TO e-GOLD?

e-Gold (1), and their competition e-Bullion, were digital currencies operating out of the USA before Bitcoin was created. They were processing more than $2 Billion USD (each!) worth of spends annually before their demise. So how did Bitcoin succeed as a cryptocurrency where e-Gold failed?
Money is power. It always has been. The great rulers of the past knew this and, therefore, controlled the money. They only gave permission to themselves to mint the money, gave wages to insert the money into society, then charged taxes to recover the money back into the royal coffers; thereby, maintaining the power and the control of availability of money. When the USA government saw another entity controlling the power of their kingdom, it was time to cut the head off of the snake. E-Gold had four easily-identifiable leaders; it was just a question of finding a believable, legal way to enact a coup.

The USA Patriot Act gave them the answer they were looking for. It required e-Gold to have a state money transmitter license to continue operations. E-Gold did not fit under this new statute. The US government then stretched the definition even further to include any system that allows transfer of any kind of value from one person to another, not merely national currency or cash. Then, they “proceeded to prosecute the USA-based gold systems, e-gold (and later e-Bullion) under the USA Patriot Act for not having money transmitter licenses, even though these companies had previously been cooperating with regulatory authorities.” (1)

And, thus, the head was severed from the body in one fell swoop of USA’s sword. But Bitcoin isn’t a snake; it is a Hydra. Everyone who has a Satoshi or more is the owner of Bitcoin. Where one head is cut off, two more grow back in its place. More and more Hydra are born with the passing of time; ILCoin is one of them. Bitcoin (and all other cryptocurrencies, such as ILCoin) is giving power to people.

Satoshi Nakamoto, wherever you are, remain anonymous. The governments keep their swords sharpened…

DE/CENTRALIZATION

“Decentralization is the process of distributing or dispersing functions, powers, people or things away from a central location or authority.” (1)

Centralization is specified in three different ways: Architecturally, Politically, and Logically.

- Architecturally: How much of a physical network can be inoperable at the same time yet the network still functions

- Politically: How many people control the physical network

- Logically: If both the physical network and the people controlling the network are cut in half, will the system still function correctly

Cryptocurrencies, and the Blockchains they operate on, are Architecturally and Politically Decentralized because they don’t need more than one computer to maintain the registry and more than one person to operate that computer. The Bitcoin network is made up of hundreds of thousands of computers run by individuals all over the world. At the time of this article, there have more than 10 million users according to Coinbase.com. You can cut the number of people and computers in half until only one of each remain and the system can rebuild itself as soon as more are reconnected. The Blockchains synchronize in a harmony of Logical Centralization; they share the same rules set and the system behalves like a single computer.

ILCoin is a centralized/decentralized hybrid combining elements from both to create a unique system that:

  • -Eliminates 51% attack risk (Centralized)
  • -Fixes scalability issues (Centralized)
  • -Keeps transaction fees / energy cost low (Centralized)
  • -Anyone can download and check the block history (Decentralized)
  • -Provides a multiple node system, increasing stability (Decentralized)
  • -Offers complete anonymity (Decentralized)
  • -Is without national borders (Decentralized)

WHAT IS A BLOCKCHAIN?

The easiest way to describe a Blockchain is to imagine an open ledger (also called a distributed ledger technology). Everyone can view all of the transactions made on the network which the Blockchain resides. As more and more transactions are completed, Blocks are added in a chronological order (chained) as records of those transactions. “Currently, the technology is primarily used to verify transactions, within digital currencies though it is possible to digitize, code and insert practically any document into the blockchain. Doing so creates an indelible record that cannot be changed; furthermore, the record’s authenticity can be verified by the entire community using the blockchain instead of a single centralized authority.” (1)

Actually, the Blockchain is the invention of the 21st century with the most potential thus far. It could be applied with slight differences to be applied to voting systems, registrations, medical and legal records, or ownership certificates for valuables. It is the system on which ILCoin’s Smart Contracts will be built. It will provide an open, transparent way for all parties involved in a Smart Contract’s signing to see the conditions become fulfilled and the contract realized.

“The first blockchain was conceptualized in 2008 by an anonymous person or group known as Satoshi Nakamoto.” (2)

CRYPTOCURRENCY ANONYMITY

Using cryptocurrency can be completely anonymous. There are many services, including ILCoin, that do not require any information from the user to create a wallet and to begin trading. Many cryptocurrency exchanges only require an email and a wallet number to begin trading. If you were to look on a cryptocurrency’s Blockchain, you can see the transactions within each block. Each transaction has a lot of information regarding its involvement within the block it was processed, however none of this information is directly pertaining to the sender or the receiver of a transaction except the wallet addresses (sender and receiver) and the amount sent. Unless someone knows you are the owner of a particular address, it is anyone’s guess as to who the address belongs.

How then, can you keep your transactions private once someone knows your address? The number of addresses you can create is practically infinite (296 possible combinations). You could, if you wished, create a new wallet number for each and every transaction. Or, a simpler method would be to create a wallet for each person with whom you do transactions and/or business. Some wallets, such as the ILCoin QT Wallet or the Bitcoin Armory Wallet can create a new address for you automatically each time you receive or send a transaction.

There is a new technology called “bulletproofs” being released that can be implemented into the Blockchain’s code that allows all normal Blockchain information to be viewed except for the amounts being transferred.

ILCoin’s Blockchain is completely anonymous. If you know the wallet address, you can view the transactions. However, if you do not, you can not simply peruse around and see what transactions and quantities go where. Is the anonymity of your addresses compromised? Simply create a new one!

WHAT IS MINING?

Every day ILCoin employees grab their hardhats, shovels and pickaxes to trudge off into the underbelly of the economic world to haul out carts full of precious ILCoins. But where, exactly, do these ILCoin come from?

Imagine you have an onion with many, many layers. As you peel off the layers, they get harder and harder to peel off. Once you peel off all of the layers, the only layers of that particular onion that will ever exist are already in circulation among the hungry populace. As there are many mouths to feed and the more people that like the taste of your onion, the more valuable each layer will become.

A cryptocurrency’s algorithm is the onion. Peeling off the layers is the mining process which forges the blocks; extracting new coins and allowing transaction processing. Once all of the coins are mined, no more coins may be produced and the computers that once mined simply produce “phantom” blocks with just the transactions but without new coins. The more well developed a cryptocurrency becomes, the sweeter the taste its coins will have.

This is why ILCoin dedicates as much effort as is possible into its development. We want our onion to be your favourite food. But like all cryptocurrencies, you should be patient with sharing that onion; it only gets more delicious over time like a fine wine.

PROOF OF WHAT?

-Proof-of-Work (POW) – Decentralized. Requires many physical computers and a lot of processing power to decipher the encrypted block to forge the Blockchain. Arguably less corruptible.

-Proof-of-Stake (POS) – “Centralized.” Requires much less resources since you only need to own the coins to ‘stake’ your mine. More price stability due to miners not selling coins. Arguably more secure.

ILCoin uses Proof-of-Work consensus, however, we do not open our doors to let anyone mine. Why? By refuting other miners, we eliminate many of the negative aspects of the normal PoW model.

  • -Cost Effective – Our closed mining network is what allows ILCoin to ease off of the processing power if few transactions are being made and to amp it up in times of high traffic. More power means more blocks being processed in less time. Even during times of low traffic, our transaction processing time doesn’t average more than 15 minutes.
  • -Cost Stability – For that same reason, we do not greedily burn through our mining equipment trying to compete for new blocks and their rewards. Then, take those block rewards and sell them to the highest bidder trying to gain back the money we spent on electricity and equipment maintenance.
  • -51% of What? – One of the biggest debilities of Proof-of-Work is considered the 51% attack. If there are no competing miners, there is no one who can corrupt the Blockchain by using more processing power. Developing and maintaining a cryptocurrency requires a huge investment of time and money. By centralizing the mining, there isn’t a distributed consensus, but to falsify any aspect of a block would be to harm ourselves, our coin, and our investment.
  • -Security – One of the biggest disputes of POW vs. POS involves the security of the cryptocurrency. As mentioned above, without a 51% attack, there isn’t a risk of any entity inserting incorrect information into our data.

As you can see, ILCoin uses a Proof-of-Work consensus algorithm but by restricting mining nodes, we make our cryptocurrency secure, cost effective, and stable. In doing so, we are able to take many of the positive aspects of Proof-of-Stake and apply them to our system of forging blocks.

SEGWIT AND THE LIGHTNING NETWORK

To understand what SegWit (Segregated Witness) does, you first have to understand the scaling problem of Bitcoin and potentially all cryptocurrencies based off of Bitcoin technology. The scaling problem is explained simply as: Bitcoin wasn’t designed for so many transactions per minute.

Each transaction consists of important data such as: the sender, the recipient, the amount of Bitcoins being transferred, etc. That data takes some space, which is quite insignificant when talking about a single transaction; however, it adds up when there are hundreds of transactions taking place every minute. The signing of a transaction essentially confirms that the person sending an amount has that amount to send and is, indeed, the person who owns that quantity of cryptocurrency.

The SegWit solution has two parts:

  • -It allows for more SegWit transactions per block because it removes (segregates) the signatures from the block and places it separately following each block
  • -It enables the use of a “Lightning Network”

The Lightning Network is a second layer to run on top of the base blockchain layer, hypothetically resolving the scaling problem by enabling virtually unlimited numbers of instant, low-fee transactions to occur "off chain" on a separate channel. Then, once the channel is closed, the final status of the transactions that occurred through the channel is written on the Blockchain.

As of the writing of this article, the Lightning Network is not in use, but is in developmental stages being tested on the Bitcoin’s Test Network.

There was a “SegWit2x” proposed that would have also increased the size of the blocks on the Blockchain to 2MB; further allowing for more transactions to be processed on each block. It did not receive the voting consensus needed to pass.

FORKING CRYPTO

Forks occur regularly within cryptocurrency and their Blockchains, and there are two main types of forks: hard fork and soft fork. But what causes a fork and what is it?

When the Blockchain is forging blocks and it finds two blocks that have different information, the Blockchain always chooses the block with the most sequential blocks chained behind it as the correct one; this is where the Blockchain forks. Most forks that occur on the Blockchain are automatically solved in this way. Transactions that occurred on the blocks attached to the shorter chain are dropped off. These transactions are usually stuck at “processing” or “waiting for confirmations” for a few days and then the funds are normally recalculated to their sender’s amount. These are called Orphan Transactions.

A hard fork occurs when a different rule set for a Blockchain is implemented. This has inadvertently created new cryptocurrencies as not all of the users of a cryptocurrency have to be in accordance with this new rule set. Examples of this are Bitcoin Classic (BCH) which forked in 01 August 2017, and Bitcoin Gold (BTG) which forked 24 October 2017. The resulting cryptocurrencies are completely legitimate in their own right; they just follow a different rule set and, because of it, have their own consensual Blockchain network for verifying transactions made by the subsequent cryptocurrency. Essentially, everyone who wishes to change to the new rule set (miners, users, and merchants) will have to upgrade to the new code.

With a soft fork, only the miners have to upgrade to the new code. If they do not, and they have less than 51% of the hashing power to create new blocks, they would eventually be overtaken by the chain fork created under the new rule set standard.

SECURITY

For as long as someone has wanted to hide something (and/or someone) and/or safeguard something (and/or someone), there have been security measures created and constantly improved upon to complete this task. Hiding, guarding, placing behind obstruction, and other methods have been solutions to security both in our daily lives and on our computers. For example, you might hide a file inside of a hidden archive. You could guard information using an antivirus or could keep your information behind obstructions such as firewalls.

Knowing what security is in place would help facilitate an entry to such defences. If you know a house has a fence two meters tall, three guard Dobermans, an alarm system with an average police response time of seven minutes, and a heavy grade safe with the information inside, you could better prepare for the task of obtaining access to such a place. The same holds true for internet security. If access to something restricted was well encrypted, it could take a very, very long time to secure an asset by brute force (the act by which a computer guesses all possible combinations until the correct one is achieved). However, if the combination of characters, symbols, numbers, and letters was known (even without knowing which ones they were) the process to brute force the encryption could be relatively quick. It would be much easier to access a restricted asset if you knew the password had 15 letters, 4 numbers, and 2 characters.

Web application firewalls (malicious script protection), access controls (backdoor protection), bot protection (distinguishing bad bots from good, helpful ones), login protections (two-factor authentication), intrusion protection systems (abnormalities with logins), and secure socket layer (encryption between web server and browser) are all crucial in maintaining a website safe. Most professional websites have all of these and an ace or two up their sleeve. A hacker would want to know exactly which of these products are in place and would prefer to know which service provider is being used. One firewall might have a debility another firewall does not.

WHICH CRYPTOCURRENCY SHOULD I INVEST IN?

ILCoin (ILC). Invest in ILCoin.

Thanks for reading.

See you next time.

Ok, ok. In all seriousness, this question deserves a bit more attention. There are several factors that one could look at when judging whether or not to invest in a cryptocurrency; technological advances, market cap, supply and liquidity, network security, usability, ect…

There are so many factors when looking at a cryptocurrency, the answer is always the same assured one:

‘I don’t know. No one knows.’

If you are considering investing into a cryptocurrency, you should look at the factors mentioned above. Look also at the movements (present and upcoming) that a company isn’t just planning on making, but rather movements towards beginning or completing. (*nudge* *wink* Smart Contracts *nudge* *wink*)

At the end of the day, its going to come down to a lot of investigating and a bit of luck.

PAPER WALLETS

The wallet with the most cyber security is a wallet that isn’t even stored on a computer. What makes a wallet a wallet? You need at least two crucial parts:

  • -Public Key: The address of the wallet that allows you to receive cryptocurrency.
  • -Private Key: The secret alphanumeric key that you should never show anyone.

In essence, a ‘paper wallet’ is a back-up of your digital one; thereby allowing you to destroy the digital one without losing any cryptocurrency. Unless something happens to that paper, you should be able to recover your wallet any time using the wallet information on the paper.

Personally, I back up my wallet with many points of information:

  • -Public Key
  • -Private Key
  • -Brain Wallet Hexadecimal
  • -Recovery Phrase
  • -Wallet URL (If Online)

It is important to consider how you are going to handle/store the information as a paper wallet is, quite literally, usually made of paper. It would be wise to place the paper into a plastic bag to protect it from moisture. Another good idea is to store a couple of copies of the information in different places such as a fireproof safe or with a trusted family member. I keep one of my copies hidden inside of an unostentatious book on my bookshelf.

BECOMING PART OF A CRYPTOCURRENCY EXCHANGE

One of the biggest goals of any cryptocurrency worthy of your interest should be to become freely interchangeable between participants of the cryptocurrency’s community. One of the easiest ways to accomplish this is by applying for and becoming part of a cryptocurrency exchange site that is already in existence and operational. This is also a great way to publicize our cryptocurrency as most of these exchange sites already have their own active community. More people who weren’t aware of our cryptocurrency would be able to see it as a potential trading pair. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done. ILCoin is branching out in a big way and I wanted to share with you some of my personal experience with exchange applications.

It is somewhat of an understatement to say there are a LOT of cryptocurrencies circulating; everything from Monkey Project (MONK) to Ammo Reloaded (AMMO) to FuckToken (FUCK) and a whole mass of others. At the time of this article, coinmarketcap.com, alone, has 1400 cryptocurrencies listed. That number increases continually, and every one of those assets are looking for market depth.

This causes exchange sites to become increasingly stricter with which cryptocurrencies they accept. Implementing a cryptocurrency into an exchange takes resources such as time, money, and human effort; all three of which are highly prized in this life. The application process could be anywhere from “Give us a bunch of money and we still won’t guarantee you’ll be added” to “We will perform a complete background investigation and won’t charge you. But if one thing is out of place, forget about it.” Usually, most exchanges fall somewhere in between. That is, if they even respond to your inquiries. With so many inquiries of other cryptocurrencies, many times your inquiries just get lost in the spam folder or among the masses.

While it isn’t easy-going, ILCoin will not give up the struggle to see our cryptocurrency a highly-valued asset in the hearts, minds, and digital wallets of individuals everywhere. We want to see ILCoin in forum publications, chat boxes, exchanges, and eventually ATMs. This year will be a grand year for ILCoin.

You can find ILCoin freely traded in the following places:
