BitcoinDark is a cryptocurrency platform that aims to resolve issues such as costly transactions and the control and privacy of money. The BitcoinDark client includes a built-in asset exchange called InstantDEX. This exchange also includes a Pegged Asset Exchange (PAX), allowing its users to trade in cryptocurrencies, fiat currencies, gold, silver, ETFs and even traditional stocks. No brokers or middlemen are needed, since everything is stored on your own computer and only you can control it. BitcoinDark (BTCD) is the token that powers the entire platform. However, the developers have announced that they will be moving over to Komodo and BTCD tokens can now be traded for KMD tokens. BTCD will slowly be shut down in favour of Komodo, which will serve as its successor.
