DigiByte, what is that ?
DigiByte is a crypto-currency linked to a blockchain decentralized. It allows transactions to be fast and secure. Its creator, Jared Tate, had the ambition to launch a virtual currency a lot faster than the Bitcoin and reach a larger community.
The technology DigiShield and MultiShield
For mining, the network DigiByte has implemented shortly after its creation, the technology DigiShield. It allows you to adjust the complexity of the mining, every minute. The purpose of this process is to avoid pools of miners can undermine the DGB in too great a quantity, because of the difficulty of calculation is too low. Other crypto-currencies have then decided to add this feature. Today, it is the process MultiShield which replaces DigiShield. MultiShied is a more advanced version that allows you to act on the 5 algorithms mining of the network DigiByte. This new technology ensures greater security on the network, in order to prevent any hackages.

The network DigiByte offers other interesting features such as a wallet built to keep the chips DGB and the ability to create decentralized applications.
