About DGB

DigiByte (DGB) is a global blockchain with a focus on cybersecurity for digital payments and decentralized applications.

DigiByte considers itself a faster and more secure alternative to Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. DigiByte blocks are mined every fifteen seconds, compared to the Bitcoin blockchain, which produces blocks every ten minutes.

Different than centralized algorithm blockchains, DigiByte uses five secure and advanced cryptographic mining algorithms to prevent malicious attacks. By creating and implementing DigiShield and MultiShield, DigiByte says it has the most advanced difficulty stability of any blockchain in the world today.

History
