DigitalNote (XDN) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency launched as "duckNote" in May 2014 and renamed to DarkNote in September 2014 and again to DigitalNote in June 2015. It was originally forked from Bytecoin. DigitalNote's main focus is on privacy and anonymity of transactions; this is achieved thanks to a technology called CryptoNote. CryptoNote's two main features are "ring signatures" (where several users sign a payment message, making it impossible to determine who exactly received the payment) and "unlinkable transactions" (thanks to automatic generation of unique single-use private keys). Besides serving as a payment network, DigitalNote also provides an ability to send encrypted messages to anyone in the world. Original announcement.
