Description of Bitcoin Atom (BCA)

Bitcoin Atom Origin

Bitcoin Atom Release Date: April 20, 2018. 

BCA is a fork of the Bitcoin Blockchain with SegWit Capabilities. The BCA team is developing a hybrid consensus model as well as on-chain atomic swap technology. The most attractive feature of the coin is the creation of a decentralized asset exchange that takes advantage of hash time-locked contracts, also known as HTLC’s. These contracts all for P2P exchange operations to be carried out without middlemen. The BCA team is anonymous. 

Bitcoin Atom Functionality

The hybrid consensus model employed by BCA is a mixture of PoS (Proof of Stake) and PoW (Proof of Work). The purpose of utilizing a hybrid consensus mechanism is to promote better stability, scalability, and to lessen the control of cryptocurrency miners. The BCA network is 51% attack tolerant. 

The most interesting aspect of BCA, is the capability to handle atomic swaps. From where BCA most likely derives the ‘Atom’ part of its name. Atomic swaps function on smart contracts, and allow for the totally trustless exchange of digital assets. They allow for two parties to take part in a trade without involving a middleman, such as an exchange. This eliminates counterparty risks and the possibility of exchanges mishandling user assets. The project will support cross chain swaps. Which will allow for cryptocurrencies that are built on varying Blockchains to be exchanged for one another. User will be able to submit orders directly through their BCA node.
