Komodo (cryptocurrency)

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Komodo (KMD) is a cryptocurrency and platform, facilitating atomic swaps (cryptocurrency exchange without third-party involvement).[1]


A atomic swap was achieved in December 2017 between the Komodo and the Bitcoin fork Bitcoin Cash (BCH) cryptocurrency, using BarterDEX, a decentralized cryptocurrency exchange supporting atomic swaps.[1][2]

Komodo partnered with Monaize in 2017, for blockchain e-banking and the development of a decentralized initial coin offering (DICO).[3][4]


KMD coin has emerged from a fork of Zcash privacy coin and consequently inherited some of its privacy features[5]. Komodo platform privacy features include Zcash's untraceable zk-SNARK addresses, and its native Jumblr anonymizer mechanism[6][7]. Komodo team developed a consensus algorithm called Delayed Proof of Work (dPOW) which is an improved version of Bitcoin's proof-of-work system. This algorithm adds another layer of security by notarizing the blocks[8].
