Hexx coin is a privacy focused digital currency with stable client and ongoing development. Hexxcoin implements Zerocoin protocol to ensure anonymity for coin users. Hexxcoin users may convert non-anonymous coins into anonymous ones, which can be sent to other users of the Hexxcoin network, and these transactions cannot be traced by any third party.
According to the white paper of Hexx coin, it will be used to "extend" the functionality of other cryptocurrencies with a low markup - this type of solution is also called merging or co-forking. Reportedly Hexx coin plans to merge Bitcoin blockchain with Zero protocol, creating completely new coin BitcoinZeroX (BTCZ) in the third quarter of 2018.
Every Hexx coin and Bitcoin holder will receive BitcoinZeroX at 1:1 ratio. BitcoinZeroX will not have developer fund and will be completely independent from Hexx coin, while the development of Hexx coin will continue. The BitcoinZeroX project will be an independent initiative from Hexx coin and will require its own dedicated whitepaper which will reportedly be released shortly.
The team of Hexx coin stated that future announcements regarding the fork will be made soon, and we will do our best to inform the readers of any upcoming news.
