      About CloakCoin

      iming to provide complete anonymity and privacy of transactions on the network, Cloakcoin was one of the first cryptocurrencies to realise the “privacy” goal.It is a platform which enables users to participate in private, secure, completely decentralised and untraceable digital monetary transactions with a peer-to-peer network.Cloakcoin uses an off-blockchain mixing protocol called Enigma in conjunction with Cloakshield, its security infrastructure. The Enigma system allows every coin-holder (called a “Cloaker”) to act as a “mixer node” which ensures anonymity.Cloakshield uses ECDH (Elliptical Curve Diffie-Hellman)[2], an anonymous key agreement protocol which ensures security and end-to-end encrypted transactions on the Cloak network.

      History of CloakCoin(CLOAK)

      CloakCoin like all other cryptocurrencies is based on the model of the first actual cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. However, before Bitcoin’s and CloakCoin’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 CloakCoin would not exist today. However, the most important reason why CloakCoin 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 CloakCoin or most cryptocurrencies would exist today.

      CloakCoin is a cryptocurrency with the symbol CLOAK and it’s price ticker on our website is 0.00. Its current price is 0.00 and the total change over the past 24 hours is 0.00. CloakCoin boasts a volume of 16,849.72 in the past 24 across your selected exchanges.

      CloakCoin Characteristics

      Cryptocurrencies like CloakCoin 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 CloakCoin base these protocols on complex mathematic and computer engineering fundamentals, creating a structure that makes it impossible to replicate funds for CloakCoin and also hides the identities of the parties involved on any transaction on CloakCoin network , unless the participants freely disclose their information.

      CloakCoin Operates on a Blockchain

      CloakCoin, 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 CloakCoin 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 CloakCoin is then multiplied and stored on each individual node, so in order to change it you would have to access he majority of the CloakCoin’s nodes at the same time, which has so far proven to be impossible.

      The advantages that CloakCoin 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 CloakCoin 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 CloakCoin 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 CloakCoin and make sure you double check all the details of the transaction before submitting it.

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

      CloakCoin Advantages

      Decentralized Point of Control

      CloakCoin (CLOAK) 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 CloakCoin’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 CloakCoin’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 CloakCoin 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 CloakCoin blockchain, which can be though of as an account of sorts. Whenever you open an “account” on the CloakCoin 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 CloakCoin 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.

      CloakCoin Supply Details

      CloakCoin is distinguished from traditional fiat currencies due to way the supply works for most cryptocurrencies. Another interesting fact about CloakCoin’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 CloakCoin the total supply is 5394672. This is the sum of all CloakCoin units that have been mined or created since the network’s creation. . The other one is the circulating supply which for CloakCoin is 5394672. This can be different that the total supply due factors such as funds being locked in escrow, coins being locked in masternodes.
