What is Discreet?
Discreet is a game-changing cryptocurrency with a sharp focus on total privacy and blistering speed.
Privacy is a human right and we've built a crypto that protects that right with the unbreakable power of cryptography. And we made it very fast.
Discreet has the distinct advantage of leveraging a decade of innovation in blockchain technology to create something truly compelling and unique.
The Discreet project is the result of years of research and development, and incorporates the most cutting-edge innovations of those fields into one incredibly powerful platform.

Discover the innovations in Discreet
Contrary to popular belief, most cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum are not anonymous.

Anyone who is able to connect your real-life identity to your wallet address will know exactly how much currency you own, and a perfect record of every time you’ve ever spent it.
Discreet, by contrast, was designed to be fully anonymous, and is many times more private than other leading privacy coins you may have heard of, like Monero.

Let’s talk about speed.

Bitcoin can process 5 transactions per second, and Ethereum isn’t much better.
Because Discreet is built on a DAG rather than a blockchain, it’s theoretically able to process up to 100,000 transactions per second. That outperforms traditional financial tools like credit cards in terms of speed and scalability.

Cryptocurrency fees, particularly with Ethereum, can get very high, and increase according to the traffic on the network.
With Discreet, users never have to worry about fees because they are always negligible, regardless of traffic volume.
Discreet is also a programmable platform, like Ethereum.
This means you can build any decentralized application that you can conceive of, and deploy it on a fast, private, and secure network.
