Komodo is cryptocurrency with private transactions utilizing delayed proof of work consensus

Komodo (KMD) is a decentralized, open source end-to-end blockchain and cryptocurrency platform designed for developers of any industry to complete transactions while maintaining anonymity. The Komodo platform was forked from Zcash in 2014 by an anonymous group lead by someone under the pseudonym JL777. Komodo was the first cryptocurrency to use a delayed Proof-of-Work (dPoW) consensus mechanism. Solution providers working with Komodo include ChainZilla, Chainmakers, and RedFox Labs. Posrtfolio products and services offered by Komodo include: a Smart Chain composer, security services, a decentralized exchange that supports atomic swaps, and white-label wallets.



The Komodo platform uses blockchain technology that aids the flexible, secure, interoperable, and scalable creation of blockchain-based business solutions. Users of the Komodo platform are encouraged to use a multi-coin cryptocurrency wallet, called Agama, that allows users to collect Komodo (KMD) active user rewards. 

Antara Smart Chain Composer

In July 2019 Komodo launched a blockchain tool for launching and deploying custom Smart Chains called the Antara Smart Chain Composer that works with Amazon Web Services.
