Skeincoin

Skeincoin is a cryptocurrency that makes the future of payment systems an everyday reality by providing integrated real-world applications.

Skeincoin uses a new Proof of Work (POW) algorithm that is energy efficient and secure.
The first round of hashing is done using Skein, the second using SHA256 (Skein-SHA2).

Skeincoin, the future of
cryptocurrency
payments, today.

Skeincoin was launched in 2013 by Red kendra, based on the Skein Secure Hashing Algorithm 2, or SHA2, which is used along with SHA256 to serve as a proof of work.  Skeincoins unique selling point is the security and safety. Originaly designed by the United States NSA, the SHA-2 algorithm is even required by law for use in multiple US Government application for the protection of sensitive unclassified information.

Another strong asset to Skeincoin hashing is its versatility; it can be implemented for CPU, GPU, FGPA and ASIC.

Now, after more than 4 years we took on the challenge to revive this sleeping giant. The active dedication of the current team, combined with the advice of some of the original team members, we feel confident we’ve got all the weapons to survive in this difficult market.
