Roadmaps

Always pushing the boundaries of innovation

Since our inception in 2016 and through some tumultuous years, the ALIAS team has delivered cutting edge privacy technology. ALIAS was the first cryptocurrency to introduce “anonymous staking” using “ring-signature” technology. The team has innovated, optimised and delivered excellent privacy software, but we will not stop there. We are always seeking to improve and innovate and build a superior user experience over all platforms. We present the roadmap for the next 1-2  years and our past work from 2016.

2020 and Beyond

Privacy Improvements

TRANSACTIONS / WALLET

  • Increase decoy sizes and reduce proof size to optimise anonymity and efficiency.

NETWORK SECURITY

  • Update Tor on a regular basis
  • Integrate further Tor pluggable transports. We endeavour to offer a range of “plugins” to make ALIAS useful to anyone who might be in a Tor blocked country anywhere on earth.
  • Dandelion ++ will further enhance network security by adding another protocol that will hide the origin of a transaction making it even more difficult to analyse the network.

They will strive to spread the ALIAS vision, make sure ALIAS reach more potential users, investors and merchants. We are aiming to recruit 20 ALIAS Ambassadors by the end of 2020.

        We know that most users, experienced and newbies alike are worried about losing access to their funds. We are actively seeking solutions to this and aim to offer a “key storage service” to anyone who would need an extra safeguard.

      • Effective support system

        We recognise that users from time to time will face issues around setting up or solving issues running the software. We will establish a secure and effective support system, ensuring that you will get help quickly and with confidence.

      • Comprehensive tutorials

        We will produce a set of tutorials for all aspects of ALIAS.
