3 years of ARRR

3 Years Of Financial Freedom Ahoy Pirates! Time flies when you’re surrounded by hearty mates and good times. Hard to believe that it’s been 3 years in a blink of an eye. We celebrate Pirate’s 3rd Birthday today! We started out returning the power of privacy to the users, empowering them with the option to opt out when they choose. Over this time, we strengthened Pirate Chain with dPoW, and reduced the risk of user data leakage at access points by building in Tor compatibility and created a privacy-focused bootable operating system, Ghostship. We’ve built the world’s first fully private economy centered around Pirate Chain. The ARRRmada today is over […]

Privacy matters

Freedom Fest 2021 Our lovely team of scallywags and deckhands has put together an overview video of the best moments at the Freedom Fest event in South Dakota in 2021. Pirate Chain (ARRR), the most anonymous cryptocurrency took part with an amazing team spreading the word about the importance of privacy and blockchain for our financial future. We met many like-minded individuals and found the event to be a great success in raising awareness for the ARRR cryptocurrency and the project overall.

Pirate Life Casino

The Community From the developers to the social media ARRRmy and the various Fleets, everyone is coming together, from different angles, to realise a vision of freedom and self-sustainability for all. It is the effort of  community members working tirelessly in every direction to make a safer and more private financial future happen that […]

You have probably noticed that the exchange wallets are very slow, even as your own ARRR wallet is basically instant. Is this due to poor exchanges, the ARRR wallet or something else? We have been hard at work to solve this problem and the first thing to notice, was that no other blockchain is doing anywhere close to the amount of zaddr transactions as ARRR. The fundamental reason of why the exchange wallets slow down is due to how zk-SNARKs are processed. The following is not a 100% technically accurate description, it has been simplified to be able to explain more clearly the fundamental issue. The ARRR network can be […]
