Solaris is releasing its Zerocoin protocol on April 18 as the blockchain's 259300th block is activated. The project is a decentralized open source cryptocurrency focused on privacy, innovation and the advancement of technology. With the Zerocoin protocol release, zXLR transactions are automatically enabled. The protocol is going to provide full privacy to the users. The trick is that the protocol converts publicly available transaction details into anonymous: anytime the user wants to spend funds, they appear as a new coin without a spending history.

Solaris is a self-funded, self-governed, private, instant and secure cryptocurrency. At the moment of publication, the market parameters of Solaris are as follows
