Where we've been:
Amazon is 22 years old, eBay is 21. The online services we use are increasingly demanding more of our personal data, a disturbing trend. Corporate entities such as Google and Facebook have grown to extraordinary sizes solely by monetizing on user data. These entities are charged with keeping said data secure and, in the case of social and economic interactions, safeguarding the privacy. This approach of centralized security models is not applicable to the new generation of technologies such as Bitcoin.

Where we're going:
Satoshi Nakamoto had initially created a marketplace which was included in the official Bitcoin codebase but was stripped out later on. The concept of a decentralized marketplace in itself is not novel, there have been a small set of academic constructions and even serious attempts at creating them. (OpenBazaar, BitMarkets, Beaver, DropZone) They either propose solutions that scale extremely well and neglect the privacy implications, or they propose very privacy conscious solutions that do not scale well. Privacy and efficiency are often at odds with each other.

[align=center]"to hide the signal you must generate noise". -Ido Kaiser[/align]

Tor exemplifies this well, the traffic is pushed through various nodes with several layers of encryption before arriving at its destination, it is deliberately inefficient but the privacy provided by the trade off is well worth it. And then there's governance and how do you attach a self-governance mechanism on a decentralized network? The issue of governance on decentralized models is already starting to become a hot button for blockchain platforms.


How we get there:
Particl is an open source, decentralized privacy platform built for global person to person eCommerce. The native marketplace, currency tokens and suite of encrypted communication tools offer unfettered access between buyers and sellers worldwide or just down the street.

You can buy or sell anything, similar to eBay, Etsy or Amazon, except that all the transaction data, payments and conversations happen over a self-governed, distributed network instead of a central server. Think of it as going to a local market to buy something you need, from the person who is actually selling it, without a third person's permission, "service" or fee required for the sale to happen.

PART is the native 2-token currency in Particl. Users have a choice when sending money on the distributed ledger. Pseudo-anonymous transactions use a public token and truly-anonymous transactions use a private token.

Particl will be currency agnostic, meaning it will support the use of many cryptocurrencies with the intent of being an inclusive platform. A decentralized privacy platform focused on free markets cannot be limited by its own built-in token system. Our goal is to lower barriers of entry and reduce friction in online shopping, allowing for easier adoption by buyers and vendors anywhere in the world.

The very nature of a free-market built on a distributed network immediately brings up the question of governance. To get right to the point, Particl is being built with protection to ensure the market does not become an ultimate version of silk road. Our main focus is researching self-governance models that can be adapted to a decentralized network. The self-governance model for Particl will have two components to it:

* Platform Governance. Protection against illegal goods. "How do we protect the platform?"
* Privacy Governance. Providing user privacy. "How do we protect the users?"

What technology is Particl built with?
Particl is based on the latest and market-leading Bitcoin codebase. We are currently adding the privacy functionality from ShadowCash onto the Bitcoin Core 13.2 codebase but with .14 released in March it is highly likely that by the time we create the Particl genesis block we will be on Bitcoin Core .14 codebase.

Will there be a token exchange for PART?
A seed round is scheduled to start March 18th, 2017 and last 4 weeks. During this time existing ShadowCash token holders can exchange SDC for PART.

To participate in the Particl token exchange, you must have ShadowCash (SDC) tokens.

Reminder: Create your Particl Wallet



As we prepare for the Particl platform launch we want to ensure the smoothest launch possible and we want to say Thank You to everyone who has already prepared their first Particl wallet following our quick 10 minute guide.

This is extremely important as your PART tokens will automatically be distributed to these addresses when mainnet launches. To date, 77% of our funding contributors have set their receiving address up which is fantastic! We're hoping to have >90% of you set this up before we launch so it reduces the extra load on the team to manually distribute tokens after launch.

Still need to set up wallet? START HERE:

___
Particl Foundation is Approved
The Swiss Foundation Supervisory Authority has approved the legal structure of the Particl Foundation and its funding structure.


___

The foundation and its board will strictly function as an entity with the mission of providing funding and support for the Particl ecosystem, the continued development of the Particl network and academic, non-profit & for-profit development of enhancements for the Particl platform and privacy domain. The foundation will not govern nor make choices for the network itself, as the network will be governed in a decentralized manner by the native voting system directed by the network token holders themselves.
___
This long-awaited regulatory approval means the team is finalizing preparations for Mainnet launch, PART distribution and Proof of Stake network stability/security measures.

Particl Launch Update: July 17th, 2017

Today is a good day!

Particl Blockchain is LIVE thanks to all involved, especially to our contributors.



Getting started:


1 First, head over to our Github for the official wallet releases.

Please only use these official compiles, don’t use any other source for your wallet releases or click on links quoted in forums. This is an easy attack vector for nefarious individuals to prey on the less experienced user.
