Catalyst is a decentralized blockchain infrastructure powered by a privacy-focused community, utilizing fully open source code.
Catalyst had no ICO and no premine. All development is funded or carried out by the community.
Catalyst has utilized it's privacy protocols from it's launch, making it one of the most private blockchains in existence. This makes it hyper-resistant to transaction analysis. Especially important in today's data-breach prone world.
When you create a Catalyst wallet, you are provided with a private key, and with this key, no one except you has access to your funds.
Catalyst prides itself on not only being computationally decentralized, but also geographically decentralized, allowing you to securely transact with anyone in the world in seconds.
Catalyst is owned by its community, and anyone with internet access can take part in the network.
Catalyst uses ring signatures and one-time addresses for truly anonymous payments
Catalyst's transactions can't be linked between the sender and the recipient
Catalyst follows Satoshi Nakamoto's original vision of decentralized, trustless cryptocurrency, i.e. a secure digital cash operated by a network of users. Transactions are confirmed by distributed consensus, and then recorded on the blockchain immutably. Third parties do not need to be trusted to keep your money safe.
Unlike Bitcoin, Catalyst is fungible. Just like cash, all coins are equal, changeable. It is extremely unlikely that a coin will ever be blacklisted by any party due to its association in previous transactions.
Catalyst will allow data encapsulation with fee's upon request for said data.
There is no central authority controlling Catalyst, it is developed and maintained by the community
