The DigiByte Blockchain is perfectly positioned towards building a secure and decentralized digital future with its unique combination of problem solving experience, pioneering new innovations and resilience through 5 full-time years of development.


Full-time Founder

Jared Tate created and dedicated full-time development towards DigiByte since becoming one of the few blockchain founders who went public in 2014.


Tried & Tested Technology

The DigiByte blockchain has been battle-hardened and tested for over 5 years now, based on the most proven blockchain technology.


Industry Leading Transaction Speeds

With quicker confirmation times, DigiByte transactions are one of the fastest ways to send value using a blockchain.


Not An ICO

DigiByte has never been funded through an ICO, presale or token sale, nor is there a private company controlling the DigiByte Blockchain in line with our vision for a decentralized digital future.


Multi Algorithm Mining

DigiByte was one of the first and currently active blockchains to hard fork from a single mining algorithm to 5 mining algorithms.


Use Cases Nominated in Public Competitions

DigiByte technology has been presented to governments, corporations and banks to emphasize the benefits of a decentralized future.


Manageable Units

While limited in total number, DigiBytes are much more available than other blockchains units. A total of 21 billion DigiByte will be created within 21 years, with each DigiByte being divisible to 8 decimal places.


Early To Implement Industry Critical Features

DigiByte development has shown industry-leading firsts over the last five years including DigiShield, MultiAlgo, MultiShield, SegWit and Odocrypt. This attribute will remain a focus in all future development.


World's Longest Major Blockchain

Growing over 9 million blocks, the DigiByte blockchain has encountered and overcome scalability issues not yet seen by most other major blockchains. These innovations will continue into ongoing development.


Large Community

DigiByte has one of the largest, most engaged and decentralized community in today's blockchain space, adding new users every day.


Successful Trials on Decentralized Exchanges

DigiByte has been successfully traded on decentralized exchanges as a key step towards a decentralized digital future.


More Resistant to Hacking Control

DigiByte security is far more resilient to a 51% attack than other leading blockchains, making it an ideal asset for protecting valuable data.
