Celebrate DGB Genesis Block Day: 5 years old!
On January 10th, Digibyte launched; not with an ICO but a headline, “USA Today: 10/Jan/2014, Target: Data stolen from up to 110M customers.” From that confirmed block, DigiByte began its mission to focus on cybersecurity, speed, and decentralization.
How will you celebrate with DigiByte? I’ve given a few possibilities below; but I know there are many more, please add suggestions in the comments.
Let’s get to the celebrations!
Live Stream: Put on your party hat and join Digibyte Founder, Jared Tate and DigiByte Ambassador, Josiah Spackman with a Live Stream Countdown starting Noon (11 PST) on January 10th. They will be discussing the past 5 years as well as give a glimpse of the future plans for DigiByte. You can even post your live questions. Subscribe to Josiah’s Youtube channel to be notified when the live stream starts. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0LyKbC_naDVJJ-FtSVo5eA
Mine DigiByte on your gaming computer with DigiByte One Click Miner. DigiByte has 5 mining algorithms available. Two of the mining algorithms, skein and groestl are good for GPU’s. DigiByte has a lot of guides for mining, but this particular method is a great way to get started using your PC with the one click miner. https://www.minedigibyte.com/.
Run a Node: This is the real way you can join the DigiByte party! By running a node, you help make the network stronger and more decentralized. The DigiByte team has started the Dowload.Run.Done.- #ProofOfNode campaign. https://digibyte.io/digibyte-wallet-downloads.
After you are set up, don’t forget to share a pic of your rig to show the world what decentralization is all about! https://twitter.com/DigiByteCoin/status/1081297970228805644

While there are many ways to celebrate DigiByte this week, they all have a common thread. Each app, game, contest, and github code started with a person passionate about DigiByte. That dedication is the thread that binds our DigiByte community to continue to push ourselves and each other to Do Good – Do Well.
Congratulations DigiByte on your 5th Anniversary. You have stood the test of time and the best is yet to come!
