TurtleCoin is moving to Chukwa Algo (CPU only!)

Tuesday, August 13, 2019 | TurtleCoin

The v0.18.0 release of the core TurtleCoin suite activates a network upgrade at block 1,800,000  (~16days) that implements block major version 6. Block major version 6 changes the Proof-of-Work (PoW) algorithm to Chukwa. 

Chukwa is actually Argon2.

What is Argon2?

- Memory hard algorithm
- Source code is GPL-3.0 compatible
- Easily integrated into the core code, pools, etc
- Argon2 is the memory hard winner of the 2015 Password Hashing Competition (PHC).
- Only one known cryptocurrency project Aquachain uses Argon2id
