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 rounds of hashing through six different algorithm digests as follows:

  • Blake
  • BMW
  • Groestl or Skein
  • Groestl
  • Jh
  • Blake or BMW
  • Sha-3 (Keccak)
  • Skein
  • Sha-3 (Keccak) or Jh
