Sumokoin is forked from the source code of Monero cryptocurreny, one of the most innovative digital coins which is well-known for security, privacy, untraceability and active development, therefore, naturally inheriting all of those great features, yet without the burden of its past
Sumokoin is one of a few rare cryptocurrencies with true fungibility - the feature makes digital currency act like physical cash i.e. no other people can find where the money comes from and how many have been transferred.
Sumokoin is created with high level of privacy in mind, setting Ring Confidential Transactions (RingCT) with minimum ringsize (mixin) of 12
to conceal sources/amounts transferred and make it high resistance to blockchain-analysis attacks
Sumokoin utilizes the power of a distributed peer-to-peer consensus network, every transaction is cryptographically secured. Individual accounts have a 26 word mnemonic seed displayed when created, which can be written down to back up the account and account files are encrypted with a passphrase to ensure they are worthless if stolen.
* 98% of premined coins were locked in escrowed wallets, details at announcement thread
** For curiosity, please consult this script which emulates the algorithm of Sumokoin's block-reward emission
*** Calendar months for block reward changes are estimated (based on difficult target x heights) and, therefore, would be a bit different in practice. Block reward for each turn is also not a fixed number yet not expected to change much (if any)
