RingCT (Ring Confidential Transactions) technology hides the sender and recipient data, as well as amounts, for all transactions in blockchain. This technology allows full confidentiality for each member of the network.
POS-algorithm allows any member of the network to participate in the process of generating new blocks and validating transactions to receive rewards. For hot staking, the user needs to keep their wallet online, while cold staking allows funds to be offline while a remote node stakes for you.
Bitcoin Confidential is the only Bitcoin code based 100% anonymous spending cryptocurrency. This makes it easier to adopt in exchanges and 3rd parties than cryptonote based coins.
Bitcoin Confidential creates a new class of privacy coins, allowing all coins to be fungible and any member of the network to keep their privacy. Unlike other privacy coins with limited privacy features, Bitcoin Confidential has 100% anonymous transactions. Bitcoin Confidential has privacy enabled all the way from the first block. Compared with coins like Dash, Zcash, Komodo, Pivx, and Zcoin, all of which have privacy as an optional feature, it isn’t trivial to reject transactions that are private.
