Privacy: A Key Ingredient for Freedom
We believe privacy is a fundamental right. Epic is designed to be a currency for everyone, and combines the privacy-protecting MimbleWimble protocol with sound economics and fair distribution.
Tiered Consensus and Emission
The security of ASICs with the accessibility of CPU and GPU mining.
Epic can be CPU, GPU, and ASIC-mined. Block rewards are distributed according to a schedule that balances wide distribution with long-term security.
Protocol Level Privacy
Confidentiality is the only option.
With public blockchains, transaction metadata can be used to deanonymize users and their activities. MimbleWimble fragments transactions using the CoinJoin method, protecting your privacy without the need for a trusted third party.
No risk of “tainted” money.
Thanks to its privacy features, Epic is completely fungible, which means you don’t have to worry about what kind of activities your coins were involved in before you got them. Each coin is identical to every other coin.
Light and Efficient Blockchain
Faster and more scalable, with improved anonymity.
The process known as “Cut-Through” automatically removes old and unneeded transaction data, reducing blockchain size by almost 90%.
High throughput while being secure and decentralized.
With MimbleWimble, Epic can handle up to 20 transactions per second. Layer 2 solutions similar to the Lightning Network are planned, which will further enhance throughput while maintaining decentralization.
