What makes Burst unique?

Burst was created in August 2014 as a Nxt fork – it has been working and battle-tested for years. It is the first and currently only cryptocurrency using the Proof-of-Capacity consensus algorithm, a modified PoW mined with HDD space, making it much more energy efficient and green than Proof-of-Work, yet fairer and more decentralized than Proof-of-Stake. It was the first ever cryptocurrency to implement working, turing-complete smart contracts, and to perform Atomic Cross-Chain Transactions (ACCT).

On December 27th 2017, the PoC Consortium developers released a white paper titled The Burst Dymaxion, describing the implementation of a tangle-based lightning network, making Burst a truly scalable, energy efficient and anonymous cryptocurrency. In 2018 the Dymaxion will allow to open payment channels in the form of Tangles on top of the Burst blockchain. The white paper also describes a PoC3 consensus protocol that will allow the Burst blockchain to take over a custodian role in globally distributed redundant storage.
