Dimecoin uses the Quark algorithm for securing the blockchain.
Quark is a super secure algorithm with 9 rounds of hashing from 6 unique hashing functions. The multiple hash provides an extra layer of security.
The algorithm derived from 9 rounds of hashing through six different algorithm digests as follows:
- Groestl or Skein
- Blake or BMW
- Sha-3 (Keccak)
- Sha-3 (Keccak) or Jh
