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

Social platform for petitions Change.org announced the launch of a screensaver that mines Monero on users' computers. All tokens will be transferred to the charity fund of Change.org. This is reported by Coindesk.

This initiative was launched in partnership with the marketing agency Tracelocke Brazil.

Representatives of Change.org report that the screensaver will consume resources only when users do not use the computer. According to their calculations, if 10 thousand computers will run the screensaver for 12 hours a day, the charity fund will be transferred $ 10 thousand monthly.

At the moment the program is available only for Windows users and the platform did not report on the release plans for the version for macOS.

Note that at the end of April, a similar action was launched by the Australian unit of the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund; (UNICEF). The website "Page of Hope" mines Monero cryptocurrency.
