However, one of the main difficulties faced by cryptocurrencies are the entry barriers to operate in this market. Despite the immense value attributed to the security and resilience of networks such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, contradictorily almost all of the trading of its assets still depends on centralized services, subject to all the flaws and problems that crypto-coins were created to solve.

From the conception of Bitcoin until the year 2018, there are more than 30 cases of hacked Crypto Exchanges, totaling more than a billion dollars in total losses, without considering the negative impact of this incidents on the public perception and the demand for cryptocurrencies.

Bizanc Network


Value transfer is the basic functionality of all cryptocurrencies, allowing users to move units of value between accounts. In Bizanc users can transfer any asset present in their wallets, such as the native currency BIZ, Bitcoin, Ether and Ethereum Tokens, or native Tokens generated in the Bizanc network.

In the Exchange environment, it is possible for the user to perform market operations, buy and sell orders, and order cancellations. Token generation transactions allow users to establish a unique ticker name and symbol on the network, total stock of Tokens, and public keys that are allowed to manage the Token.

The atomic swap structure enables you to establish an account with a pre-allocated amount of an asset, and other users can deposit assets into this account and convert them to a pre-determined rate. This functionality exists to facilitate the distribution of assets and the organization of ICOs (Initial Coin Offering).

All operations are transmitted by the users to the network of nodes, which propagates the operation until its eventual mining. A fee is charged on the operation, and brokerage on executed market orders.

The Bizanc platform has its native currency, BIZ. BIZ serve as an award to miners who succeed in mining a block, and as a basis in asset pricing and intermediation between market operations. Intermediating between BIZ and currency pairs in the Exchange environment enables the functionality of pathfinding. Pathfinding allows orders to be matched indirectly, in separate order books. For example, supposing Alice wants to buy ETH by paying on BTC and Bob wants to sell OMG and buy BTC, by the time Carol sends an order to buy OMG by paying in ETH, the platform is able to automatically marry Carol’s order with Bob, and of Bob with Alice. This operation takes place atomically; or it runs at all ends, or does not occur, freeing participants from the counterparty risk.




With these functionalities, Bizanc aims to provide superior usability and significantly enhance the liquidity of the cryptocurrencies market. Following the Bitcoin model — the first and most well-established crypto-model — the Bizanc network adopts a proof-of-work (PoW) consensus algorithm. In a PoW scheme, mining nodes must generate a cryptographic proof of computational capacity spent through a hashing algorithm to generate a valid transaction block that can be transmitted and assimilated by the rest of the network. In the Bizanc network, mining nodes are rewarded with an amount in native BIZ currency for each mined block.

Decentralized Exchange

This arrangement allows the Exchange operation to be open and transparent. Membership is free, any user can devote computing power to the mining function and ensure the integrity of the network. All transactions — whether transferring securities, trading, or deposits and withdrawals of assets — are permanently registered and accessible at Blockchain. It is also possible to verify the total volume of assets within the network, even those stored in account and not actively traded. The matching of orders occurs in a distributed way, by all the mining nodes. These characteristics make frauds and bad practices possible in centralized services become unfeasible, such as falsification of trading volume or selective match of orders.

Emission of tokens

A Token generation request is sent to the network, specifying parameters such as Token name and ticker symbol, supply and other public keys allowed to manage the Token. Nodes confirm that the name and ticker are unique, not conflicting with existing Tokens, and the request is mined and Tokens are generated. A specific fee is charged to avoid network spam or malicious Token generation. Each Token is identified by a unique hash.

Atomic Swap


This paper introduces the proposal of a Decentralized Exchange, describes its functionalities and possible advantages compared to available centralized services. It is proposed a platform in Blockchain that allows, in addition to exchange of values, asset trading and generation of Tokens natively. It also outlines platform applications and attracts them to its adoption.
