Over the next few weeks AppleByte will be changing its name to ArtByte.


We feel the new name better describes our worldwide purpose, and in fact we bought the domain names for ArtByte when we launched AppleByte.

AppleByte is headquartered in NYC. The name AppleByte was a play on the old saying, "Come to New York and take a bite out of the Big Apple". However, AppleByte has grown considerably and has artists around the world, with a social media following of over 78,000 users. Outside the US, the meaning of the name AppleByte is not as clear.

The trading symbol "ABY" will remain the same.





"If you love me, ArtByte me!"
                                                                                         - Artists around the world





A new cryptocurrency to support artists of all types (musicians, actors, film makers, dancers, painters, sculptors, photographers, models, etc.)



AppleByte launched in New York City on May 1, 2014!

Our Launch Plan & Philosophy

Dev Team was paid in Bitcoin (funded through our Crowd Funding Campaign), not premine. You can verify that here: Indiegogo Campaign

We want to encourage the user community (defined as the artists & art lovers of NYC, as well as the miners) by giving them the opportunity to mine, before the whales jump in.

Therefore we are only releasing the MAC & Windows wallets at launch. The source code will not be released for 6 - 12 months, as the vast majority of the whales run linux.

We will have one official pool server.

The wallet has a built-in tab for solo & pool mining.

The difference in AppleBytes and other coins supporting the arts is our focus on getting the coins in the hands of the users in one specific market, NYC. NY has the greatest concentration of artists of all types of any city in the world.

For decades now, artists have come to NY, in hopes of taking a bite out of the "Big Apple" NYC. That's why our focus is on getting the word out in the community before releasing coins to the miners and speculators. In addition to technical talent, our development team includes artists from all fields who live and work in NY. We will literally be attending live events all over the city, giving AppleByte wallets to musicians, painters, actors, photographers, etc.

To be successful a coin needs a real community, in addition to the roles (very valid roles) that the miners and speculators play. Without the community, or next gen technical improvements, a coin becomes just another pump and dump scheme.
