      History of Achain(ACT)

      Achain like all other cryptocurrencies is based on the model of the first actual cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. However, before Bitcoin’s and Achain’s time , cryptocurrencies were much more different, relying instead on a centralized power structure rather than the decentralized governance we see today. If it weren’t for the works of cryptographers such as David Chaum, Wei Dai, Nick Szabo and Hal Finney, who established some of the ground concepts for modern cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Achain would not exist today. However, the most important reason why Achain was made possible is thanks to a person or a group of people under the alias Satoshi Nakamoto. He took the concepts that cryptographers before him established and managed to create an actual peer-to-peer electronic money system that couldn’t be counterfeited. If Satoshi Nakamoto didn’t create Bitcoin, it is hard to say if Achain or most cryptocurrencies would exist today.

      Achain is a cryptocurrency with the symbol ACT and it’s price ticker on our website is 0.01. Its current price is 0.01 and the total change over the past 24 hours is 0.00. Achain boasts a volume of 14,719,021.83 in the past 24 across your selected exchanges.

      Achain Characteristics

      Cryptocurrencies like Achain use strong cryptographic protocols, or very complex computer code to secure transfers of information, in order to create a safe system that is notoriously difficult to crack. The programmer of digital currencies such as Achain base these protocols on complex mathematic and computer engineering fundamentals, creating a structure that makes it impossible to replicate funds for Achain and also hides the identities of the parties involved on any transaction on Achain network , unless the participants freely disclose their information.

      Achain Operates on a Blockchain

      Achain, like most cryptocurrencies operates on a blockchain, a new and disruptive technology that offers benefits for storing, securing and transferring information that was not otherwise possible before its inception. The idea of blockchain was first discovered in 1991 by Stuart Haber and W. Scott Stornetta, however it was not until an anonymous person or group under the alias of Satoshi Nakamoto that created the first functional blockchain (Bitcoin’s blockchain) and improved on the ideas of Haber and Scornetta to create a truly functional distributed ledger.

      You can imagine the blockchain that Achain is based on as a giant, distributed database where every transaction’s information is recorded and then spread on a massive network of connected nodes or computers. The information for transaction of Achain is then multiplied and stored on each individual node, so in order to change it you would have to access he majority of the Achain’s nodes at the same time, which has so far proven to be impossible.

      The advantages that Achain runs on a blockchain are that it is very cost effective to run, compared to other centralized resources, due to the cost of operating being split amongst all the network participants.

      No one can alter the defining characteristics that govern Achain base, unless certain conditions are met and changes are implemented by the developer team or a network wide consensus is reached for the changes to be applied.

      One disadvantage of operating on a blockchain is that generally, transactions with Achain are final, meaning that is very unlikely that a transaction can be rolled back if a mistake occurs. Be careful when transacting cryptocurrencies such as Achain and make sure you double check all the details of the transaction before submitting it.

      Achain also boasts a higher degree of safety, as the mechanisms of the blockchain are incredibly hard to crack

      Achain Advantages

      Decentralized Point of Control

      Achain (ACT) is defined by a decentralized governance system, which does not rely on a single point of control to manage transactions on the network in the same way a bank would. Because of this Achain’s network features a distinct advantage that makes it very difficult to counterfeit or imitate. Another advantage of being decentralized is that any attacks on Achain’s network will have to be in multiple places at the same, whereas a bank or any centralized system will have an host of servers in one place.

      Cost Efficient

      Generally speaking, auditing records is a time consuming and expensive process, whereas for Achain which stores all its records on the blockchain, this can be done with minimal effort and in a much shorter time.

      Establishing a Digital Identity

      You can create your own identity on the Achain blockchain, which can be though of as an account of sorts. Whenever you open an “account” on the Achain blockchain, you will be given a private key, which lets you interact with the blockchain, and a public key, which let others identify and interact with you.

      Immutable

      Since all information that is transmitted on the Achain blockchain is stored and secured on a wide network of computers or nodes, you can always be sure that the information presented is valid and has not been tampered with.

      Achain Supply Details

      Achain is distinguished from traditional fiat currencies due to way the supply works for most cryptocurrencies. It cannot be printed like governments do with fiat, due to the maximum supply being 1000000000 and this dictated by the base code that the Achain network runs on. No more than 1000000000 will ever exist unless major changes to the code are applied. Another interesting fact about Achain’s supply is there can be two other types of supply aside from the maximum supply. One is the total supply which indicates the amount of coins there are currently in existence. For Achain the total supply is 1000000000. This is the sum of all Achain units that have been mined or created since the network’s creation. . The other one is the circulating supply which for Achain is 945999998. This can be different that the total supply due factors such as funds being locked in escrow, coins being locked in masternodes.

      How to Store Achain

      There are a few way to store your Achains , and they all involve a certain types of both physical and electronic wallets. Regardless of what kind of wallet you will use, in order to access your Achain funds you will need to have a private key and a public key. With the private key, you can access your funds and send them to whoever you like, just as long as it is an address that Achain is compatible with. Never ever disclose your Achain private key or also called private address, as this will give anyone who has it full control over your wallet. The other type of key is the public key or address, which is used for other people to send Achain to your wallet, and this one can be freely disclosed but it can be used to identify you if a name is ever associated with your public address.

      Achain Paper Wallet

      The only physical and non-electronic way to store your Achain is through a paper wallet, and this is possibly the safest way to protect your Achains. Simply write the private and public keys of your Achain wallet on a sheet of paper, however you will need access to an electronic device should you choose to send or move your Achain funds to another address. The risk here is losing or damaging the sheet of paper with your Achain public key.

      Achain Hardware Wallet

      You can store Achain on a device like a Trezor or USB drive. You are able to make online transactions by plugging them into any any net enabled device to send Achain to another address. Usually the hardware device that you store your Achain on is offline which is a great security advantage. Please conduct proper research before purchasing any hardware wallet to store Achain funds on as many are outdated or of poor quality.

      Achain Desktop Wallet

      Desktop wallets are a convenient and easy way to store your Achain coins. Find a reliable wallet software that support Achain install it on your PC and that’s pretty much it. It can be dangerous if any virus infects your PC or if any physical damage comes to it, which can result in the loss of all your Achain funds.

      Achain Online Wallet

      For online wallets, they operate in the cloud and your private and public keys for your Achain funds are stored in the cloud as well. Very handy if you plan to access it from multiple devices but they also put your Achain at great risk due to security breaches in the cloud storage which is not that unheard of.

      Achain Mobile Wallet

      The most easy-to-use method of storing Achain is on a mobile wallet. It is a simple smartphone application where you set up an account and you can use it to send Achain by scanning a QR code or even use it to pay in any shops that accept Achain. However, your Achain funds can be lost if your phone is damaged or if its security is breached.

      Achain Summary

      Achain’s network can be defined as a payment system, with accounts, transactions and balances. You can store Achain on one of the wallet types mentioned above and it will act as your own personal bank account that you are responsible of maintaining and keeping your private keys secure. Achain as a cryptocurrency allows you to make secure transactions and you can always check the transaction details by checking the Achain public ledger, if applicable. This revolutionary method of being your own bank assured that Achain and other cryptocurrencies will play a vital role in the way we conduct transactions and how we define currencies in the future.
