HushNG Specs


Private messenger for pseudonymous and anonymous communications

Hushlist is a program which allows communicating via the cryptocurrency Hush. You can send messages to around 50 people simultaneously, allowing for encrypted mailing-list style messaging.

Using the zCash protocol, it allows transactions involving shielded addresses in addition to normal transparent Bitcoin addresses. This allows transactions without disclosing sender, receiver, message (or even that a message existed), or financial transaction amount.


Decentralized by Design

Hush is an open source project to its strength, and is motivated solely by the interests and activities of the community at large. It is one of the first coins to be traded on BarterDex and strongly supports decentralized exchanges.



BarterDEX is a decentralized cryptocurrency exchange (1) developed by Komodo, which supports HUSH and many other currencies. It allows you to exchange one cryptocurrency for another, just as you would exchange paper money in a currency exchange in an airport. It does this using a technology called Atomic Swaps. Atomic Swaps allow buyers and sellers to perform exchanges peer to peer (P2P) rather than through a centralized exchange. In the most simple terms, it acts as a sort of escrow.
