What is ECHO?

ECHO, a privacy-focused universal coin with instant, direct and private transactions for everyone.

GPU efficient mining algorithm

The new ProgPoW algorithm enables GPU mining of maximum efficiency, making it economically impractical to upgrade to ASICs.

Truly decentralized

ASIC resistant ProgPoW empowers fair coin distribution, without being consolidated by the government or huge corporations.

Privacy-focused

Echostake's superior anonymity improves upon Monero's RingCT technology as well as Zcoin's exposing balances.

Instant transactions

A new block is mined approx. every 60 seconds providing throughput of 4000 transactions per minute.

Transparent rules and operations

All code is open-source and soon will be available on Github for review and audit. Support is available through Discord.

Progressive rewards

Receive protocol rewards through a variety of methods: PoW, PoS, as well as Masternode rewards.

Fair distribution, effective consensus

Echostake represents a new digital currency, bound to introduce an innovative mining mechanism, alongside an improved method of sending and receiving coins.

Phase 1

ProgPoW, fairly distributed ECHO

Fair distribution of ECHOs is achieved with ASIC resistant ProgPoW technology which was built specifically for GPUs of AMD and Nvidia for maximum performance utilization.

Maximum efficiency of GPU usage discourages mining with ASICs, as there is no increase in productivity.

Phase 2

PoS, the intelligent consensus

ECHO fair distribution is complemented with centralization-proof, energy efficient consensus with masternode staking.

PoS removes economies of scale from participation, while facilitating direct, private, instant transactions.
