HistoryEdit

Htmlcoin was created in early 2014 by Amando Boncales while he was a doctoral student at Northern Illinois University. He was inspired by his belief that blockchain technology developed to serve and help people can, and will, make a difference. He launched Htmlcoin on March 8th of that year as a scrypt alternative crypto coin similar to Litecoin. It began trading actively on many exchanges soon after its launch.

Htmlcoin suffered a 51% attack in June 2017, which forced Boncales and the coin’s key developers to meet to devise a new plan of action for the coin’s continuance. The formalization of the Htmlcoin Foundation and a strengthened and renewed commitment to the ongoing development of Htmlcoin emerged from out of these talks as well as a plan to shift the Htmlcoin coin into something more than just a coin. Htmlcoin was to become a smart contract blockchain platform. A new algorithm for the coin was chosen, intense development took place, and a coin swap was initiated on November 20, 2017 in conjunction with the release of the new Htmlcoin blockchain platform.

Technical featuresEdit

Htmlcoin is a secure blockchain based on Bitcoin Core that integrates Ethereum based smart contracts. It implements an extendable design that can add more virtual machines (VM) than many other blockchain platforms. Enabled through an Account Abstraction Layer, the Htmlcoin platform allows an account-based VM to function on a Bitcoin UTXO based blockchain.

It has been developed, supported, and promoted by the Htmlcoin Foundation, which not only designed a blockchain platform based on the best characteristics of Bitcoin and Ethereum, but expanded it to include the positive attributes of network technology stacks from the likes of QTUM and ARK. Essentially, Htmlcoin is a hybrid of some of the best and most innovative technologies of the crypto world.
