Estimated reading time: < 1 min

Summary

Evan Duffield, the Darkcoin cryptocurrency’s primary developer (later Dash), created the X11 algorithm in 2014. Initially, he set himself the job of creating an algorithm that would protect cryptocurrencies from specialized ASIC mining instruments.

X11 is the name of the chained Proof-of-work (PoW) algorithm implemented in Dash (started as “Xcoin” in January 2014). It was partly influenced by Quark’s chained-hashing strategy, adding further “depth” and complexity by raising the amount of hashes, yet it differs from Quark in that hashes rounds are a priori determined rather than randomly selected.
