Welcome 👋

The official X-Cash blockchain documentation to get started and develop with X-Cash. Learn the basic functions and join the validation of the blockchain as an elected delegate.


The X-Cash Foundation is an open-source, no-ICO blockchain project launched in 2018 developing a privacy centered cryptocurrency inheriting from Monero and bringing new innovation in the privacy coin space.

X-Cash main features are:

  • FlexPrivacy - Private and public transactions on the same blockchain Private by default, X-Cash's FlexPrivacy lets the user decide if he/she wants the transaction to be made public.

  • Delegated-Proof-of-Private-Stake - X-Cash custom consensus designed for privacy coins X-Cash consensus model gets rid of the decentralized yet unsustainable PoW consensus to propose its own variation of a DPoS with DBFT consensus.

  • Sidechains - The next step in blockchain hosting X-Cash will make it easy to create and host your own blockchain, while being able to profit from X-Cash's unique features.

The document was written and aggregated by the X-Cash Foundation, the X-Cash development team and contributors. If you would like to learn more about contributing please the visit our Github organization.
