The DigiByte Blockchain informationDigiByte
is a truly decentralized UTXO blockchain that was fairly launched on January 10, 2014. DigiByte is also truly permissionless, since there is no central controlling authority.
The DigiByte blockchain is an immutable ledger, a chain of blocks all with verifiable digital signatures since its creation in 2014 and backed by billions of dollars of cryptographic computation. Its blockchain is also fully open-source, released under the MIT license, and completely verifiable by any individual or entity.
DigiByte embraces the Bitcoin core ethos of "Do not trust, verify", in that no entity should ever need be "trusted" in order to send/receive DigiByte (DGB) or to store/retrieve data from the DigiByte blockchain. DigiByte originally utilized the Litecoin code-base, with a completely independent blockchain and a unique Genesis Block. It has undergone several non-contentious soft-forks and hard-forks, none of which culminated in a chain-split, but rather a complete consensus resulting in seamless upgrades of the entire DigiByte network.
