Who are the DigiByte Awareness Team (DGBAT)?

DGBAT is a community-driven outreach initiative founded in May 2018. It evolved out of the initial efforts of known community member Dereck de Mezquita.  We aim to promote the DigiByte blockchain through education, outreach and marketing campaigns. We are proud to be part of the amazing DigiByte community and believe that the transformative nature of the DigiByte blockchain, when harnessed correctly by the right people, can contribute to a better world.

We are led by a 15-member team, whose members in turn manage teams across social media, outreach, education, developers and writers.


Brief History of the DigiByte Blockchain

Jared Tate founded the DigiByte blockchain in 2014. Like Bitcoin and Litecoin (which it was modeled after), DigiByte is a UTXO blockchain.  A common misconception is that DigiByte was ‘forked’ off Bitcoin or Litecoin but that is untrue. It was created from scratch with its own source code. Its features include faster block times, increased security with 5 mining algorithms and lower transaction fees. Today, there are over 200,000 nodes in over 80 countries and counting. You can read more about DigiByte here.
