Whitecoin Swap Q&A

1. What is Whitecoin?

Whitecoin is a community-based decentralization project with more than five years of history. The project was launched in early 2014. The main members of the original development team are from the Netherlands, Germany, Finland, Australia and other countries.The newly upgraded Whitecoin will adopt RPOS mechanism to realize the functions such as cross-chain asset management, cross-chain transfer and exchange, and cross-chain value transfer. The upgraded Whitecoin public chain provides three main functions: cross-chain assets management, smart contracts, decentralized exchanges, and one core feature: innovative community governance mechanisms. Upgraded Whitecoin is an innovative cross-chain project, which has fully realized the function of cross-chain asset management. It is also the largest cross-chain public chain in the world. It has set a perfect benchmark and demonstration for breaking the barriers among various public chains.

2. Why does Whitecoin need to be upgraded to a cross-chain project?

In July 2019, Whitecoin was temporarily delisted on Bittrex for its non-active community and the lack of a full-time development team. Bittrex expectation was that the Whitecoin community will make significant changes within a window of three to six months. The Whitecoin team also believe we require reinvigoration to move forward, with the fast changing pace of cryptocurrency it is not feasible for a part time volunteer group to be competitive with highly funded teams backed by ICO capital. Fully appreciating the importance of Bittrex through Whitecoin's historical development, the Whitecoin community decided to upgrade the blockchain after two major meetings in July 2019. The plan includes 2 aspects to satisfy Bittrex’s requirement. First, we need full time developers and second, we need to upgrade the whole blockchain and wallet, which can make this project more powerful and meaningful. The new blockchain was upgraded from POS 3.0 to RPOS-based cross-chain giving Whitecoin a much greater use case, an inherent connectability to the rest of the cryptosphere and flexibility to develop in to the future. Thanks to the donation of some big holders of Whitecoin, we already finished the above mentioned task, and have about 20 full time staff (including the technical and marketing staff). We will continue to develop the smart contract system and more applications on the Whitecoin blockchain.

3. The direction of the developing new WhiteCoin community

First, the development team of the new Whitecoin need to be maintained, we have to pay all the members every month and we will also release the financial report monthly.

In order to meet Bittrex’s requirement and Whitecoin’ s long-term developingl plan, Whitecoin team has set up a technical development team with more than 20 members, working full-time on projects including back-end development, front-end development, APP development, testing and so on. The development languages include JAVA, C++, Kotlin, Python and so on. The nationality of the team members ranges from Netherlands, Germany, Japan, the United States, Australia, China, Japan and other countries. At the same time we will also recruit the part-time staff from all over the world to for marketing and promoting.

Secondly, the ecological system of the new Whitecoin needs financial support. Besides the fund support to the full-time R&D team, there are more third-party teams that have to be funded, which can carry out secondary developments on Whitecoin blockchain in the future. The developments of this project include but are not limited to wallet, DAPP ecology, smart contracts and more cross-link asset access.

Finally, the marketing job needs the financial support. We will invest more resources in order to build media cooperation, achieve a positive influence in the block chain world. We plan to get listed on a range of exchanges and plan to hold events and meetups in Germany, Switzerland, Malta, Turkey, Japan, Korean, Vietnam, Thailand and China ,for building a global block-chain project.

The construction cost of the new WhiteCoin community will be obtained through donation. The 15 wallfacers of the community have also promised to donate on a monthly basis to support the operation of the new WhiteCoin community.

4. What is the Whitecoin Foundation?

Whitecoin are registering a foundation in Singapore, and the Foundation will be responsible for project development costs, global marketing expenses, and ecological construction costs.

The Foundation will build a solid ground for all Whitecoin community expenses, completely overturn the past which there was no resources to sustain the community activities.

5. What is the true value of the Whitecoin in the future?

We compare Whitecoin to the other cross chain project, everyone can find there is a huge potential here.

Coin supply
1.1 billons
500 Millions
50 Millons

Benchmarking against other cross-chain projects in the current market, Whitecoin marketing cap is relatively low, and it is only about 1/10-1/20 of the others, which means it is a low risk investment.

6. What is the distribution mechanism of current Whitecoin?

The total amount of Whitecoin is 1 billion, 75% will be converted to old whitecoin holders, 20% will be allocated to miners, and 5% will be held by Whitecoin Foundation.

7. What is the mining mechanism of the new Whitecoin?

The distribution mechanism of new Whitecoin mining is as follows:

Block Height
Number of Blocks
Block Rewards
Total Rewards

Whitecoin’ s new mainchain was launched on September 21, 2019. At present, all miners are official nodes. After the swap opened, all Whitecoin holders can register as miners or mortgage to the official miners for mining. The official miner node will gradually withdraw after the real miners come on board. All the mining profits of the official miners will be locked in Whitecoin Foundation and returned to the community later.

8. What is Whitecoin's eco-plan?

Whitecoin is committed to supporting the ecological development of DeFi. And the Whitecoin Foundation will offer a special fund of $2 million to support the high-quality DeFi projects. Whitecoin DeFi covers fields including Swap, stablecoins, lending, oracles, insurance.
