Disclaimer: These are my opinions and do not reflect the opinions of the TAU foundation. There will be things I say that might bother you. There will be opinions that may not be completely informed. For those of you who know how to issue constructive feedback and share knowledge, I implore you to help educate and lead all of us in thoughtful debate. For the rest, your opinion will be ignored.

At the TAU project, we have been asking one question over and over.

What is wrong with Bitcoin?

I sit in the camp of thinking it is by far and away the best solution humankind has ever come up with for a currency. Wences Casares, CEO of Xapos, does an excellent job of succinctly explaining why here

OK, so what’s wrong with it if you like it so much and what can TAU do better?

TAU is an experimental cryptocurrency that focuses on speed of transactions, the velocity of money, and near zero transaction fees

In subsequent articles, we will discuss each of the items in more detail, and also attempt to address bigger assumptions :

TAU will be announced in the next few days on bitcointalk with our technical whitepaper coming soon after.

We call this an experimental cryptocurrency. We will be imperfect.We were brave enough to make a new consensus mechanism and present it to the world. Even our ideas of initial distribution will be considered extreme (hint:it will be aimed at getting nocoiners involved in the crypto revolution). We ask that you be brave enough to give us your honest constructive feedback and participate in our quest to ask the hard questions and make the hard decisions.

Stay tuned for more and “Stay Active”!
