Data Governance Framework for Web 3.0 Applications
Band Protocol connects smart contracts with trusted off-chain information, provided through community-curated data providers.
We’re excited to be able to offer support for BAND tokens here on Incognito – the first-ever platform for privacy tokens.
Right now, if you send, receive or store BAND, that’s all entirely visible on the Ethereum Explorer. Anyone can uncover your BAND holdings and activity with a single click. Having the choice of privacy is really important — that’s why we built the Incognito-Ethereum bridge and a super simple mobile interface.
This article will explain how to participate in #sendBANDprivately to earn free, private, BAND. New to sending BAND privately? Check out the walkthrough here.
Incognito is a platform for privacy tokens, powered by its own proof-of-stake sidechain that attaches to any blockchain to confidentially transfer crypto assets. Developers can also easily create their own privacy tokens on Incognito.
Incognito utilizes zero-knowledge proofs optimized for mobile and achieves near-instant transaction speeds through state sharding.

5 February 2020 – It is with pleasure that we announce that Waltonchain’s WTC token is now available in the Incognito Wallet and on the pDEX, the world’s first truly private decentralized exchange.
Waltonchain operates in the supply chain sphere, where traceability of stock and transparency are of the utmost importance. However, the inverse is true when it comes to cryptoassets – details of balances and information related to trades are better off hidden, which is where Incognito comes in.
We’re giving WTC holders the option of a privacy version of their token, known as pWTC, so they can transact and store their assets privately.
To obtain pWTC, users simply need to download the Incognito Wallet, available for both AndroidandiOS. With it, they can deposit their WTC and exchange it for the aforementioned privacy version at a rate of 1:1 – enabling them to store, send and receive tokens under the secure veil of anonymity, so that nobody can track or trace their activity of balances. Furthermore, they can swap it back to WTC whenever they like.
3 January 2020 – Incognito, an open-source project focused on building privacy for the crypto space, has teamed up with the high-throughput, high-security blockchain protocol Zilliqa to deliver reliable privacy solutions for its users, developers and traders. Incognito is a blockchain-agnostic platform that enables complete anonymity for today’s most promising crypto assets.
Binance’s fully regulated USD stablecoin, BUSD, seamlessly integrates crypto into world commerce, loans, payments and more.
Now, BUSD holders can spend their digital dollars on Autonomous, a beloved e-commerce retailer of smart gadgets and workplace products.
It’s classic crypto-commerce… with an important twist.
In conjunction with privacy blockchain Incognito, Autonomous customers will be able to choose privacy BUSD (pBUSD) as a payment option. Any BUSD holder will be able to seamlessly convert their BUSD to pBUSD via the Incognito Wallet, to take advantage of the very first privacy-focused crypto-commerce experience.
December 20, 2019 – Today, Matic and Incognito announce their collaboration to deliver essential functionality for Ethereum – the blockchain that powers a huge majority of all existing use-cases for the technology. Through the use of decentralized sidechains, Matic brings speed and Incognito brings privacy. Both already running on their respective mainnets, these projects demonstrate a shared commitment to increasing real-world viability for blockchain-powered apps and currencies.
The Binance roadmap is one of the most ambitious in the sphere – signaling leaps towards a fully tokenized economy. In the race between blockchain protocols, speed and scalability are crucial parameters by which to measure both real-world applicability and long-term sustainability. Binance Chain scores highly in both.
Privacy will be the third.
Today, Incognito is glad to announce that users will now be able to trade TOMO completely anonymously on the Incognito pDEX. Following on from the announcement earlier this month, the Incognito-Tomochain bridge now allows users to seamlessly convert their TOMO to pTOMO – to take advantage of the first-ever completely private trading experience. The Incognito team is excited to list TOMO by providing liquidity for the first pair pTOMO/pUSDT.
Today, we’re excited to welcome FTM to the Incognito pDEX! All FTM holders will now be able to deposit their coins to receive privacy 1:1 counterparts (pFTM) that are tradable on the world’s first completely anonymous decentralized exchange.
Dec 6, 2019 – Today, Neo and Incognito announced their intention to collaboratively enhance privacy for the growing Neo ecosystem. By building a trustless privacy bridge between the Neo and Incognito blockchains, Neo will soon be able to empower it’s 2,000,000 users with untraceability and enhanced privacy.
In the wake of today’s privacy concerns, e-commerce startup Autonomous is glad to integrate ‘Pay Incognito’ as one of its payment methods. Pay Incognito will kick off from the first day of 2020 for shipping addresses in US.
As a different, privacy-protecting alternative to traditional payment options such as Paypal or Amazon Pay, buyers will be able to purchase smart devices and workspace products completely anonymously with untraceable crypto.
USDC is one of the most successful responses to the concern that for Satoshi’s new electronic payment system to work on a larger scale, transacted currencies need to maintain a stable value. With USDC, you can comfortably make daily purchases with crypto, or accept crypto at your business.
However, any USDC transaction and any USDC holder is completely exposed on a number of public block explorers. Sender and receiver IDs, amounts, balances, timestamps and more — are completely visible to anyone who cares to look:
Stability has been integral to crypto adoption. Privacy is a right for all those that adopt it.
Harmony ONE tokens are now supported on the Incognito Wallet. This will enable users to hold, send and receive their tokens in complete privacy, thanks to a bridge built between Incognito and Ethereum.
Holders of TOMO will now be able to send, receive and store their tokens with total privacy. Incognito is excited to announce that a bridge has been built between TomoChain and the Incognito sidechain, allowing TOMO holders the option of enabling incognito mode for their crypto whenever needed.
“TomoChain is one of the most exciting projects in this space today,” said Duy Huynh, founder of Incognito. “The team and community continually develop and acquire use cases for its technology; with Incognito, they now have an option to enable privacy for not just TOMO, but also TRC20 tokens and dApps created on TomoChain.”
