    Hcash was born to overcome current limits of existing blockchain technology through its ability to link different blockchain systems. In simple terms, it will allow for transactions of both data as well as value (money) to occur between systems that currently cannot readily exchange both with ease. By bridging the limits between different blockchains and securing information through encryption, we believe Hcash brings forth greater room for growth and opportunity.

    Hcash has partnered with Monash University, Hong Kong Polytechnic University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University to develop its technology including Zero Knowledge Proof technology and our Proof of Work and Proof of Stake model. Additionally, Hcash has partnered with four leading quantum computing and cryptography experts who are actively working on implementing quantum resistant technology in Hcash.
