Particl was launched in July 2017 and is a privacy-focused and censorship-resistant e-commerce platform. The ecosystem currently includes the PART privacy coin and the Particl Marketplace app. Particl Coin (PART) is a digital currency with privacy and data protection features. These include confidential transactions with Bulletproof, RingCT and Stealth addresses. The Particl blockchain, which is always updated to the latest Bitcoin Core code base, uses Particl Proof of Stake (PPoS), with cold staking enabled, to protect transactions. PARTS acts as a settlement layer for all transactions made on the Particl Market and enable its privacy capabilities. All payments, in fiat or digital currency, are automatically converted into PARTS with the aim of giving users true privacy and freedom. Particl Marketplace is a multi-vendor marketplace with no middleman, no commission, almost no commission and no login requirements. It allows anyone to create and join countless marketplaces and storefronts. Its goal is to preserve user privacy at all times, make sellers earn more money per sale and still be able to price their products more reasonably, and protect supply chains and their private interests. Market transactions are secured by an autonomous two-party escrow system that aims to force parties to be honest with each other.
