Using the bitcoin blockchain to ensure the safety of altcoins, the VeriBlock project announced the launch of the main network. This is reported in a press release.

According to the developers, the VeriBlock technology allows networks of other cryptocurrencies to use the bitcoin blockchain to counter the “51% attacks”. The project is confident that this approach not only ensures the security of less popular networks, but also allows their developers to focus on innovation and functionality.

According to analysts of The Block, 25–45% of bitcoin transactions fall on VeriBlock. The VeriBlock network uses a consensus algorithm called Proof-of-Proof (PoP). The project seeks to ensure the safety of other blockchains by loading a snapshot of the altcoin registry into the BTC blockchain, using the OP_RETURN function and other methods to embed network state data.

The project’s website states that PoP allows altcoin networks to use the most protected Bitcoin blockchain with its Proof-of-Work algorithm.
