Linda is a cryptocurrency project by a small group of developers, which decided to fork the 8-Bit coin, as they deemed it had worthy features but a flawed execution. Thus, they developed a PoW and PoS hybrid that offers more than 70% of the block reward for stakers. Also, there are Linda masternodes which enable one of the key features in the network – instant transactions. Masternode operators are also part of the governance and treasury system, which allows them to vote for major change proposals and help develop the project further. Further useful additions include how swaps and stealth transactions.
