Viacoin is a relatively fast and flexible cryptocurrency that is built on the Bitcoin Core. Viacoin adds a variety of extra features to Bitcoin’s Core code, including faster transaction times through its Proof-of-Publication consensus, micro-transaction support, and a ClearingHouse settlement protocol. The ClearingHouse settlement protocol is decentralized and allows users to issue custom assets, trade peer-to-peer with other users, and perform meta transactions. Viacoin will soon implement a Lightning Network layer that is offchain and allows for instant transactions through payment channels. Built-in Tor support and a transaction trickle feature (which only sends one transaction per address of a wallet) provides a layer of privacy and anonymity for users.
Viacoin (VIA) is the digital asset that can be sent peer-to-peer and used to pay transaction fees.
