David Chaum, the inventor of digital cash and father of online anonymity in the 80s and 90s has launched the long-awaited alpha version of the xx network for the Elixxir project, led by the renowned cryptographer.
Maintained by a team of nodes run by independent operators, the xx network public alpha represents the first public demonstration of cMix, the pioneering transaction network that shreds metadata and provides unprecedented consumer privacy and security.
“It’s great to see Elixxir is available publicly for high volume testing. I’m a supporter. Some things about my life are confidential, that’s why I’m looking forward to using their privacy protecting platform,” said Roger Ver, Executive Chairman of Bitcoin.com.
“We’ve worked very hard over many years to design and develop the Elixxir privacy-protecting platform and now users can access the platform for private communication. It’s one thing to talk about and describe such a platform, it’s quite another to make it available for use on a smartphone. I’m very proud of our team for getting this done,” said Chaum.
In the weeks ahead users will have a chance to test the xx network public alpha for themselves. Currently, select partners are testing the public alpha. The public alpha will immediately be capable of processing 500 transactions per second and is expected to scale within weeks to 2,500-5,000 transactions per second.
The xx network public alpha nodes are run by a cross-section of elite node operators around the world. Operators include Bitcoin.com, Chainzilla, Everstake, Incrypt, Iqlusion, and Simply VC. Hand-picked by Elixxir, these node operators will contribute their expertise and feedback to inform the xx network decentralized beta later this year.
Elixxir is a privacy-protecting transaction platform. xx network nodes protect privacy by running the Elixxir mix software that obscures metadata generated by a user’s daily activities. The platform will support secure messaging, payments, and decentralized application (dApp) data transfer. Elixxir is capable of supporting high volumes with extremely fast processing to support global consumer adoption of the decentralized blockchain.
The xx collective is the global community supporting David Chaum’s projects and includes over 3000 community members who have joined to secure early access to the Elixxir Alpha Messenger and other xx network information and features. The xx collective app is available on iOS and Android to support participation in the Elixxir privacy-protecting platform and the Praxxis blockchain on the way to MainNet.
