TUSC announced today that over the holidays they successfully launched their main net, opened their chain to public block producers, and resumed trading on the Altilly cryptocurrency exchange.
Rob McNealy, TUSC’s Cofounder, said:
“We are excited to finally bring this project home and get launched. Our volunteer team has worked very hard over the past 14 months to make this a reality and I could not be prouder of them. The rollout had some minor UI bugs, which are being corrected, but the core has been functioning flawlessly. I am very excited by how fast our network is; we have three second block times, so confirmation times (authorizations) are just as fast normal credit card processing. The transition to crypto payments should be virtually seamless for both retailers and customers.”
“As gun owners, and ardent defenders of the right to self-defense, we know that the gun industry is constantly under attack. We wanted to create a gun-centric crypto to act as a ‘continuity of business’ payment system for gun retailers. Due to their decentralized nature, blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies simply can’t be shut down by ‘activist’ banks.”
TUSC – The Universal Settlement Coin, is an open source, pure payments cryptocurrency project built on a delegated proof of stake (DPOS) blockchain. TUSC is a decentralized, non-ICO, community project with on-chain governance.
TUSC was purpose-built for retailer adoption using a unique marketing model with an elected and term limited third-party vendor called the Marketing Partner, whose role is to support the onboarding of retailers and promote TUSC through aggressive marketing and sales strategies to vertical markets and industries with recognized problems with existing payment systems.
