Our Vision

At Conceal, we believe that access to knowledge is what truly allows great ideas to flourish and diverse communities to grow.

We believe that Conceal is what the community decides it to be and that decisions on how to grow the protocol should involve everyone.

We also believe that anyone who wants to contribute should have the right to do so regardless of their technical talent, stake in the ecosystem, or social status. This is why we made the choice to let the community be in control of the platform we provide.

Features

Banking: Deposits & Investments

Deposits form the backbone of the Conceal ecosystem, providing users with an egalitarian form of staking that earns interests on locked deposits. Conceal Investments provide higher interest returns for longer term holders.

Encrypted Messenger

A true decentralized, anonymous, untraceable, and end-to-end encrypted messaging service that operates on the blockchain while allowing messages that self-destruct. Future releases will include web and mobile messaging applications.

Technology

Private

The transactions in the Conceal Network use a minimum level of ring signatures to obfuscate the origins and destinations of all transactions, ensuring they are untraceable and unlinkable.

Decentralized

Conceal’s blockchain uses the Proof-of-Work algorithm for its distributed peer-to-peer consensus network to maintain the integrity of the blockchain and ensure its immutability.

Fungible

Conceal is truly privacy protected at the protocol level and unlike some other cryptocurrencies adding transparency is not optional. Funds on the blockchain cannot be discriminated against under any circumstance.

Low Fees

Conceal’s blockchain platform removes intermediaries and operates on low transaction fees to minimize transaction costs. Transaction costs are kept low with a static fee per transaction, not by block size.

Those who have no idea about mining can easily start mining by watching this video.

Method 1: Run guided_setup.bat file and answer questions:

Configuration name: conceal-herominers
Do you want to use multi algorithm mining? n or y (optional)
Enter algorithm 0 name: cryptonight_gpu
Address and port of mining pool: conceal.herominers.com:10361
Wallet address: YOUR_CONCEAL_WALLET_ADDRESS
Password: YOUR_WORKER_NAME
Do you want to use your CPU for mining algorithm 0 ? n or y (optional)
Do you want to enable logging? n or y (optional)
Do you want to enable compute mode? y or n (optional)

Method 2: Create conceal-herominers.bat file and copy / paste example below.

setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100	
setx GPU_MAX_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_MAX_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_ENABLE_LARGE_ALLOCATION 100
setx GPU_MAX_WORKGROUP_SIZE 1024
@echo off
cd %~dp0
cls
SRBMiner-MULTI.exe --algorithm cryptonight_gpu --pool conceal.herominers.com:10361 --wallet YOUR_CONCEAL_WALLET_ADDRESS --password YOUR_WORKER_NAME
pause

Create conceal-herominers.bat file and copy / paste example below.

set GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT=100
@echo off
title Conceal (CCX) HeroMiners Pool
CryptoDredge.exe -o stratum+tcp://conceal.herominers.com:10361 -u YOUR_CONCEAL_WALLET_ADDRESS -p YOUR_WORKER_NAME -a cngpu
pause

Method 1: Run xmr-stak.exe and answer questions:

Use simple setup method? (Y/n) y
Please enter the currency that you want to mine: ryo
Pool address: conceal.herominers.com:10361
Username (wallet address or pool login): YOUR_CONCEAL_WALLET_ADDRESS (can be ADDRESS+PAYMENTID or ADDRESS.DIFF or ADDRESS+PAYMENTID.DIFF)
Password: YOUR_WORKER_NAME
Does this pool port support TLS/SSL? Use no if unknown. (y/N) n

Method 2: Example pools.txt

"pool_list" :
[
{"pool_address" : "conceal.herominers.com:10361", "wallet_address" : "YOUR_CONCEAL_WALLET_ADDRESS", "rig_id" : "", "pool_password" : "YOUR_WORKER_NAME", "use_nicehash" : false, "use_tls" : false, "tls_fingerprint" : "", "pool_weight" : 100 },
],
"currency" : "ryo",

Happy Mining.
