RHOM is a Proof-of-Stake and privacy-focused cryptocurrency based on the Bitcoin codebase. It is always maintained to its latest version for security, usability, and stability purposes.

RHOM is a next-generation privacy coin that leverages a combination of several privacy protocols (CT, RingCT, Bulletproofs, stealth addresses) as well as the Bitcoin codebase to provide unmatched privacy and flexibility.
Because these protocols run on top of the Bitcoin codebase, RHOM is able to be used within smart-contracts and decentralized applications, making them as private as the RHOM currency itself.
|Multi-state privacy||3 optional privacy levels for transactions|
|Public transactions||Bitcoin-like public transactions, auditable on blockchain|
|Blind transactions AKA Confidential Transactions (CT)||Transaction parties are visible on blockchain, but the amount is hidden|
|Private transactions AKA RingCT||Both transaction parties & amounts are hidden on blockchain|
