The Sumokoin project has been around for more than 3 years now, offering the superior privacy features from the Monero pizza with a few extra Sumo slices of pepperoni and cheese to beef up that taste of privacy.
After the former article from December 2019 (https://cryptohuff.com/cryptocurrency/sumokoin-privacy-without-compromise/) things have not been quiet on the front of this cryptonote. After concentrating on Asian markets to broaden the horizon of SUMOKOIN, the numbers of Exchanges that support SUMOKOIN has risen 50% in the last 6 months.
New users mean new requests, a web wallet feature stood out firmly above all others and this is no small thing with privacy-oriented cryptocurrencies in the cryptonote section. After consideration and studies among other currencies, some pearls were found out there and carefully adopted into a SUMOKOIN webwallet which treasures all of the privacy demands.
Because privacy and security is – and will be – always the primary pillar on which SUMOKOIN stands.
While Monero went on to RandomX as a new PoW, SUMOKOIN decided to stick with the current algo. Although a switch to a new PoW (RandomX) has been tested and approved, the CN/R PoW still had a lot of potential being a mixed CPU and GPU minable coin. This has been proven by a firm and steady hashrate increase since this decision, where we could see an upcoming of popularity of SUMOKOIN in Asia due to new upcoming Asian pools who now make up for 30% of the total hashrate.
The successful development in the web wallet gave incentives for another feature on the user wish list, a mobile wallet. The devs were already testing different Android wallets and after a period of internal testing with a select group of SUMOKOIN users the Android wallet was ready to become live, it was named The Great Wall with a big fat Sumo wink to the lively Asian community.
A nifty feature that turns up new in cryptonote currencies is Dandelion++, in which SUMOKOIN was one of the first cryptonote coins to integrate this gem. Without getting into details too much, it hides the possibility of linking the IP address used in transactions. Because this fits the ‘Vision of Sumoshi’ perfectly it is already fully on the master branch.
For who wants to know the details of this feature, Monero Outreach did a full story it.
The future, what will it bring!?
