Bata (BTA), or Barter and Trade Alternative, describes itself as a cryptocurrency that was developed to replace trade dollars in traditional barter systems. Bata aims to change the way people trade by introducing barter on the Blockchain. The vision of the project is to introduce a new trading system (called the Barterchain) that aims to create new jobs and help break the current debt-based monetary system. The team claims that BATA has the following features: Dynamic Blocks: Based on block height and difficulty (means no cheap blocks) Instamina Protection: Instamina protection will activate after 5 blocks are mined from a single algorithm in a short period of time. Deadlock Protection: Difficulty is reduced even when no new blocks are found, new blocks are mined much faster even after a very high hash rate period. Block Processing Control – The team says it has full control over block processing with no wallet updates required.
