Early this year he created Darkcoin – believed to be the first true anonymous, secure and untraceable crypto currency. Unlike Bitcoin and Bitcoin-based alt-coins which have transparent electronic transactions, Darkcoin can be equated with online cash due to its private/anonymous transactions that resemble the anonymity of private cash transactions.
