Talking about online privacy is a tricky subject. For years, we have been persuaded to believe that we are in control of our data. However, the harsh truth is that everything is screened.  The Great Deception About Citizens’ Data Privacy You may think that some laws protect your privacy, right?  If you are referring to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), in effect since 2018 in Europe, we have bad news for you. Said law is focused on data security but not on privacy. That is, as long as companies comply with strict security guidelines, they can use your personal data.  If you live in the United States, the situation […]

You read it right. Bitcoin has a rival, Pirate Chain, the most secure privacy-focused blockchain that ensures your financial freedom. No, it’s not clickbait. This article will explain why Bitcoin cannot give you the financial freedom many preach. So if you are a bitcoiner, you have been warned. We’ll dare to say what nobody from the king of cryptocurrencies wants to hear. Jokes aside, the traditional financial system is not at its best. Inflation, recession, debt, and the possible advent of a new “cold war” are working against the supremacy of the US dollar as the dominant currency (and other government currencies too). And yes, digital currencies can also act […]

security code audit arrr

As promised, the Pirate Chain team has secured a code security review by an external third party. Reviews are part of the development process and occur occasionally to ensure that all parts of the code are scrutinized as much as possible. Why Are Code Audits Important? Making sure that the code functions as it should and has no security holes are critical development stages for any piece of software or hardware. Likewise, with blockchain it is important to have thorough reviews to ensure that hacks and double-spend attacks are impossible to achieve. So how many levels of audits does technology such as Pirate Chain undergo? The list is fairly long […]

Wallet Encryption

The Pirate Chain development team led by Forge has been working hard the past 6 months to release the newest version of the Treasure Chest full node wallet aka v.5.3.0. What’s New The full node wallet now has the following features: Full Wallet Encryption Every record stored in the wallet.dat for Pirate Chain can be fully encrypted. The current standard inherited from upstream bitcoin/zcash is to just encrypt the spending keys while using the full viewing key and incoming viewing keys as indexes for various objects. This protects your coins from being spent if your wallet.dat is compromised, but not your privacy. While wallet encryption isn’t officially supported by zcash, […]


What is wARRR? wARRR is a tokenized version of ARRR on Binance Smart Chain (BSC) – and potentially other platforms in the future. wARRR allows users to exit transparent platforms and make their funds private by sending their wARRR through a bridge and converting it to ARRR (also known as unwrapping). Users convert their ARRR to wARRR via the bridge, and can then trade on Pancakeswap, as well as provide liquidity to the wARRR/BNB pair. If a user provides liquidity, then can then stake it to receive rewards over time from the transaction fees that occur. There is a 1% transaction fee that happens when a user buys/sells/transacts with wARRR, […]

A total of 5% of the ARRR supply is being made available with another 10% reserved in case of demand […]


Everything in this world that is scarce, by definition, can have a price put on it. The air we breathe has no price because it is superabundant — but given the right conditions, it can be transformed into the most valuable commodity (many who have walked the plank found this out the hard way). And so it is with bits, bits that become “information objects which are provably costly to create” once you attach proof of work (PoW) to them (Finney, 2007). Everything that is scarce is subject to the laws of supply and demand. If supply is increasing faster than demand, you get falling prices (e.g., fiat shitcoins). The […]
