Spectrecoin (XSPEC) is a privacy focused cryptocurrency that uses ring signatures and stealth addresses, via stealth addresses, to anonymize transactions. The project, launched in 2016, is a not-for-profit entity based in United Kingdom. The project is overseen by the Spectrecoin Development Fund, which has four members. Current board member Eirik Korsell is the project’s founder.

Research and development in the privacy token space has been growing, as it is coming to be learnt that Bitcoin is not as private as initially believed. Spectrecoin (XSPEC) is one of many privacy tokens in the market, many of which use other privacy preserving solutions to hide sender and recipient identities, and transaction amounts. As is increasingly the case with privacy focused networks, Spectre allows users to make both public and private transactions.

Spectrecoin (XSPEC) achieves privacy through its use of ring signatures, which pools transactions together to obfuscate the origin, and stealth addresses, which are essentially disposable addresses. Spectrecoin is much newer among them and attempts to justify its worth through its energy efficient consensus algorithm, among other features.

The consensus algorithm is a key aspect of the project. This “Proof-of-Anonymous Stake” algorithm lets users remain fully anonymous while staking coins. The network also has TOR+OBFS4 integration, adding a further layer of privacy by routing traffic across the TOR network. One other noteworthy feature is that the network a dual coin system, one each for private and public transactions. XSPEC is the public token, while SPECTRE is the private one.

Medium to long term plans for Spectrecoin (XSPEC) include Android wallet development, cold staking and improvements to privacy.
