How to buy Beam (BEAM)
Anonymous digital currencies have been on the market for several years now, but they have a significant drawback, namely, the heavyweight of the blockchain. They also do not respect the principles of confidentiality, as the blockchains contain information about user transactions.
Beam (BEAM) is a new financial instrument in the market, founded in 2019. This digital currency shows the rules of anonymity differently.
It is an innovative project the main goal of which is to create a financially independent platform through a confidential MimbleWimble protocol-based data exchange service.
The creators of the platform expect Beam to become an effective tool for everyday use in the future. Specialists have already highlighted several advantages:
- An anonymous platform, which is also scalable and energy-efficient.
- Multi-tasking system and ability to function in different areas.
- User-friendly and instant money transfer system.
- Efficient decentralization, providing a large set of devices for mining.
- Functions in the Opt-in Auditability system, which involves auditing, and Atomic swap (which involves atomic swaps).
- Online and offline transaction execution.
Beam is a native blockchain token, which is a means of accumulating and issuing data from users in the global network.
The technology was named after a famous series of books about Harry Potter. The meaning is also taken from there: The MimbleWimble spell deprives a man of his intelligible speech. Platform blockchains are also deprived of the ability to publish data on any customer transactions.
MimbleWimble started to be developed in spring 2018, the Israeli company Beam Development Limited was going to implement the program in a short time. But in the end, the project was launched only on January 3, 2019. This is the first working version of MimbleWimble, which was implemented. Then Grin, the digital currency, was launched. It started to be developed a year earlier, but the launch was two weeks later than the launch of Beam.
Beam platform was founded as a classic non-ICO startup, which excluded the initial publication of coins. Initially, the platform received cash resources from investors who joined the system in a closed round.
Compared to the competitive Grin platform, the Beam blockchain never managed to reach the leading positions among the trading platforms.
