AEON isn’t just a currency.
It’s a lifestyle.
AEON is based on the CryptoNote protocol and was the first Cryptocurrency to use the #KangarooTwelve (K12) algorithm with 1MB scratchpad (Half that of CN based coins like Monero).
It was forked from Monero back on 6.6.2014 at 6:00 PM UTC, with no premine or instamine. It has no dev tax. 100% of funding is by voluntary community donations which have created a dev fund of almost 1 million USD (as of May 2018 prices).
- Unlinkable transactions with random data by the sender
- Untraceable payments uses ring signature
- Lightweight software using LMDB
- Blockchain analysis resistant
- CPU/GPU mining, ASIC-resistant
Modifications to the codebase are recommended and invited to any members of the public. Anyone can make a pull request on GitHub with modifications they see fit to the AEON codebase.
There is much in store for the future of AEON. Public input and Pull Requests for the code along with new features or adjoining software is recommended.
Aeon is looking to implement #RingCT and Bulletproofs once the code review is finalized by the Monero team later this year. This will also allow AEON to enable multi-signature wallets. After this release, AEON will truely become untraceable along with MONERO for those using mixin 3 or higher. AEON may also merge and release the final code for #LEDGER support if time permits allowing users to cold store their currency if they desire.
