How to Build Privacy Coins, Apps and Projects on Incognito

Welcome to the Builders Category! Jump to:

Anyone can participate, everyone can join, no one can ever restrict or control Incognito. Incognito is and will always be 100% open-source.

Issue your own privacy coins

Incognito is the first platform for privacy coins. While other project focus on creating privacy for one token, Incognito lets anyone create a privacy coin. There are two types of Privacy Coins on Incognito:

1. Incognito Native Coins

This option creates a totally new Privacy Coin from scratch on Incognito. Anyone can do it, and it only takes a few seconds:

  • On the main wallet screen, click ‘Issue a Privacy Coin’
  • Fill-in the Name, Ticker, Total Supply, and other Information
  • The creator of a custom Privacy Coin can edit the description and other information at any time. Make sure to backup your private key if you want to edit this information later!
  • What to go further? Apply for a verified tag for your custom Privacy Coin!

2. Shielded / Ported Coins

  • On the main wallet screen, click ‘Add coins to your list’
  • At the bottom of the screen, click ‘Issue your own privacy coin’
  • Under ‘Select a token type’, click the network of the coin you’d like to shield. Currently ERC20 and BEP2 networks are supported.
  • Enter the Origin Symbol for the original coin.
  • After you’ve added your coin, select it from the main wallet screen and click ‘Deposit’ to shield your public coins.
  • Shielded coins receive a verified badge automatically

Build your own Privacy DApps (pApps)

You can use Incognito SDK to add built-in privacy to your DApps!

Get funding for your project

DAO Grants provide funding to developers to want to create new pApps. DAO Grants are used to fund apps that…

  • Increase the number of users and transactions on Incognito.
  • Take special advantage of Incognito’s privacy features.
  • Can be deployed quickly.
  • Also, we really like open source projects.

Anyone can apply, and applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. Apply now.
