YoCoin: Now an Ethereum Based Cryptocurrency




YoCoin touted as the currency for millennials, is now making use of the Ethereum network for transactional and storage purposes.

YoCoin, a decentralized cryptocurrency that launched in July, is based on a Scrypt mining algorithm that allows it to be more accessible than Bitcoin.

YoCoin revealed in a press release that they have now enabled smart contracts that deliver a wide range of applications. Essentially, this will remove the middle man from most cases such as contracts and bonds, stock exchanges, financial record keeping, and more.

YoCoin is touted as the currency for millennials. It makes use of the Ethereum network for transactional and storage purposes. It connects Ethereum with increased security and reliability, and integrates Distributed Autonomous Applications that run without human intervention. Users may also swap their old YoCoins for the newer version.

Read the full press release below:

August 23, 2016, Bangkok, Thailand – The peer to peer digital currency, YoCoin is now an Ethereum based asset. With this latest development, one of the world’s fastest growing cryptocurrency now has smart contract applications as well.

Formerly based on the Scrypt mining algorithm, YoCoin now enables smart contracts with a wide range of applications. With YoCoin, contracts and bonds can be executed without the involvement of lawyers; stock exchanges can operate without central clearing houses; financial records can be verified without auditors and tamper-proof voting systems can be automated to ensure one person gets to vote only once.

Since its initial launch, the main target audience of YoCoin was the younger millennial crowd. But now, the digital currency considers itself as a premier internet currency with a much broader vision. In addition to being the digital currency for millennials, it also encourages the development and integration of Distributed Autonomous Applications that are capable of running without any human intervention.

“Our initial implementation of YoCoin was great, but we wanted to take it much further,”

Says the Chief Operating Officer of YoCoin, Dave Wilson. Dave continues,

“The new version of YoCoin provides a backbone for smart contracts, asset trading, real estate transactions, escrow services, income distribution systems, and an unlimited number of other uses that can all run as programmed without any downtime, censorship, fraud or third party interference,”

YoCoin uses the Ethereum network for transactions and storage purposes. It is revolutionizing the digital economy by harnessing the power of an already established blockchain for increased security and reliability.

Owners of the older version of YoCoin can now swap their coins for new ones at a 1:1 ratio. The new YoCoin cryptocurrency is also available for anyone interested in buying the asset.
