Decentralized cryptocurrency exchange XBTS.io is set to offer its users the ability to buy, sell, and earn Coin Hours on its DEX beginning July 29, 12:00 UTC. Skycoin automatically generates a parallel currency called Coin Hours (SCH) at the rate of one Coin Hour generated per hour, per Skycoin. While Skycoin has been tradable on major exchanges for many years, XBTS represents the first time Coin Hours have been made available to trade on an exchange as a separate and distinct crypto asset. XBTS DEX is a BitShares-based decentralized exchange, which means that Coin Hours will have 45 trading pairs the moment it is listed. What are Coin Hours? Skycoin is a deflationary currency, with a total supply ultimately capped at 100 million coins. Coin Hours, on the other hand, were designed to be an inflationary currency with inbuilt deflationary control mechanisms, encouraging users to spend and trade Coin Hours instead of Skycoin. In short, Coin Hours are: - A commodity currency backed by the digital asset of bandwidth on the Skywire meshnet. - The basis of the first bandwidth market in history. - A form of interest on your investment in Skycoin. - A way to keep your transactions free - An anti-spam mechanism which prevents people from attacking the network with many tiny transactions.

Skycoin Launches Skywire Mainnet The Skycoin Project has announced the launch of the Skywire Mainnet, the foundation for Skycoin’s vision of a truly secure and decentralized Internet. Skywire was conceived as an answer to the myriad shortcomings of our current Internet, including privacy failures, censorship, net neutrality concerns, and economic limitations. Skywire is intended to become a scalable peer-to-peer wireless mesh network, where all traffic is anonymous and end-to-end encrypted. The software-defined network (SDN) consists of Skyminers — custom-built hardware devices that serve as nodes providing processing power, bandwidth, and storage space for the Skywire network. Node operators on the network are rewarded for their service through cryptocurrency micropayments executed on Skycoin’s third-generation blockchain. In addition to providing an easy way for Skyminer owners to monitor and administer their respective nodes from anywhere in the world, the Mainnet provides a platform for developers to build and deploy decentralized apps onto the Skywire network. The addition of small antennas to Skyminers will allow operators to become literal Internet Service Providers to their communities, connecting to other nodes and building a resilient mesh network to which anyone may safely connect via WiFi.
