Mission Statement: To build a truly decentralized grid platform that caters to the privacy of its users. The Problem: A growing need for computing power without the crutch of centralization and the breach of users' privacy. Issues defined: 1) Computing power is the basis for all modern human activity. 2) Computational ability is reaching a ceiling. 3) Access to powerful computers has always been under the purview of governments or the richest of technology companies. 4) The centralized cloud computing market is dominated by a select few entities. 5) None of the current distributed computing platforms are addressing user privacy effectively. The solution: A full-scale transition to distributed systems that cater to privacy has finally become a viable option;
Colossusˣᵗ (ticker: COLX) is a community- orientated, energy efficient coin with a strong focus on decentralization, privacy, and real-world implementation. It utilizes an energy efficient Proof of Stake 3.0 protocol and a second-tier Masternode network for inclusive community-based governance along with a blockchain based self-funding treasury system ensuring its sustainability. In order to reach this level of usability, COLX is continually evolving. The goal of COLX is to be an advanced digital currency that is fast, secure, decentralized, private, and connects all of its users for a greater purpose as part of the Colossus Grid. Colossus Grid is an ambitious project that aims to reward individuals for voluntary grid contributions. With this, Colossusˣᵗ seeks to compete in the global market for distributed computing power and decentralized storage all while riding on the backbone of a world class privacy blockchain.

ColossusXT is an open source, community driven, environmentally conscious cryptocurrency and an alternative to bitcoin that features better anonymity. It allows people to store and invest their wealth in a non-government controlled currency and make almost instantaneous and completely anonymous transfers with close to zero fees. Colossuscoin was founded as an long-standing, energy-efficient and environmentally friendly digital cryptocurrency and this concept is being continued.
Non-Mandatory Update to COLX Core Version 1.1.1
COLX Core v1.1.1 is a non-mandatory update to address bugs and introduce minor enhancements that do not require a network change.
This new minor version release includes various bug fixes and improvements.
A privacy-centric, energy-efficient, decentralized, open-source, peer-to-peer (P2P) digital currency with instant and anonymous transactions.
A two tier network based on the popular Bitcoin core software, utilises Masternodes and Proof of Stake 3.0 protocol for securing its network which gives it unmatched stability and easy accessibility.
Full privacy is secured by technology making transactions and user personally identifiable information (PII) untraceable. Anonymous transactions are achieved by using the ZeroCoin protocol, and privacy of PII is obtained through ARMIS. ARMIS creates a private overlay network across the internet which strengthens a user’s privacy. This protected network allows users to hide their geographical location by obfuscating their ip address, replacing them with encrypted identities.
