The Obsidian vision is about unrivalled private communication through the combination of a secure messenger application with the Obsidian ODN cryptographic coin enabling a decentralised communication network. Such a platform will enforce resilience against attacks on its communication network through a community of decentralised nodes, hosted by anyone, participants receiving Obsidian ODN coins in return.
The Obsidian ODN coin is a Bitcoin-derived cryptocurrency for popular use in payments. It uses the more energy efficient SHA-512 hash algorithm to optimize for use on mobile devices and improved quantum computing resilience. It uses the Proof-of-Stake consensus strategy and pays a block reward of 20 ODN, which is equivalent to an interest rate of about 10%.
In addition to that, Obsidian ODN is the currency that powers the Obsidian Secure Anonymous Messenger platform, which allows for sending end-to-end encrypted messages, media, and files.
