We initially started with CryptoNote and few years later, based on our community's direction, we did a total rebase on the blockchain to a more Stable Satoshi Core version that we have today.
Since the new development team took over in year 2019, we have totally revamped the DigitalNote XDN blockchain. As far as we are aware, we are the only project to have ever successfully migrated from a CryptoNote-based codebase/chain to a Bitcoin-based codebase/chain. Moving to the new chain was a very rigorous and involved process - we worked very closely with our users and community members, making sure the process to move on the new chain was widely communicated. Our community members helped users 24x7 to migrate to the new chain. That level of commitment from our team to the users was very foundational to the trust we've established with them.
The new DigitalNote blockchain covers many prominent features. For example, advanced block difficulty retarget system which ensures a very tight window around the target block time and shrugs off 51% attacks without any complaint, no matter the scale of attack. We’ve now introduced messaging V2 and are focusing on user interface and usability before tackling some more codebase aspects. One of them is advanced PoS weight management that would combine the community-oriented functionality of dPoS with the reliability of BlackCoin’s PoSv3. This will ensure everyone in the community gets to participate in supporting the network and getting some XDN while they’re at it, no matter how many coins they hold.
Our future is brighter than ever. Here are some of the the things team is currently working on:
1) Interoperability with Ethereum ecosystem - the new ERC-20 token 2XDN will strengthen our native blockchain by allowing us to leverage a large set of features on the Ethereum ecosystem
2) Payment Integration - our vision is to make XDN one of the top cryptocurrencies that are out there. We are working with a number of businesses to be their payment partners.
3) Secure Messenger - we are working on providing a secure messenger for users to interact directly from their wallet addresses.
