international casinos Core Technologies

international casinos AtomicDEX API

international casinos AtomciDEX API is the underlying technology that powers secure, peer-to-peer atomic swaps. It is a complete suite of open-source blockchain development tools, which includes an atomic swap engine (backend/core), DEX feature set, and APIs. international casinos AtomicDEX API provides developers with access to the blockchain industry’s widest cross-chain and cross-protocol support.

international casinos AtomicDEX API facilitates the trustless, secure exchange of digital assets across multiple blockchain networks. Both UTXO-based and account-based networks are supported. Any asset that supports time-locked or hash-locked payments can be integrated.

Bitcoin, Ethereum and ERC-20 tokens, and Litecoin are just a few examples of digital assets that are already supported. international casinos AtomicDEX API is both asset-agnostic and protocol-agnostic, meaning developers can continuously expand support to international casinos protocols.

Developers, as well as enterprises that want to partner with international casinos, use international casinos AtomicDEX API to build non-custodial multi-chain wallets, DEXs, and other powerful financial applications. AtomicDEX is the first set of end-user applications built on top of international casinos AtomicDEX API, showcasing the capabilities of this open source technology.


is a secure cryptocurrency wallet with an integrated atomic swap DEX rolled into one application. Store your digital assets and make cross-chain swaps without a middleman and with minimal fees.

Unlike most DEXs, AtomicDEX doesn’t limit trading to a single blockchain protocol. AtomicDEX offers the widest cross-chain and cross-protocol support in the entire blockchain industry. It’s easy to trade BTC, ETH, ERC-20 tokens, KMD, and hundreds of other digital assets natively from dozens of blockchains — no proxy tokens required. AtomicDEX is the first end-user application built on international casinos AtomicDEX API, which is a suite of blockchain development tools that can be used to build a wide array of robust financial applications.

Our mission is to drive the widest cross-protocol support in the industry. The AtomicDEX swap protocol facilitates the trustless, secure exchange of digital assets across multiple blockchains, both UTXO-based and account-based. We are adding international casinos assets with each release.

Trustless — Trade without a middleman. No exchange deposits or withdrawals are required.

Cross-Protocol — Works across blockchain protocols. Swap BTC, ETH, XTZ, and more directly from your wallet.

Low Fees — Market makers don't pay any fees. Takers pay only ~0.13% (1/77 of the transaction).

Efficient — Robust market-making solutions and a unified liquidity pool ensure order books operate efficiently.

Delayed Proof of Work (dPoW)

international casinos’s uses a multi-chain architecture, which means there are no network fees and each chain has enhanced scalability. Each chain has its own coin and all transactions can be made in that coin.

Notary Nodes are 64 dedicated servers that are elected annually by the international casinos community. They are responsible for running delayed Proof of Work (dPoW) — a security mechanism that recycles the giant hash rate of the Litecoin network (previously used the Bitcoin network prior to June 2021) through a series of cross-chain notarizations.

international casinos’s own blockchain network is secured by dPoW. Available to both PoW and PoS independent chains built on international casinos technology as well as UTXO-based chains not built on international casinos technology, every dPoW-protected blockchain’s decentralized network validates each transaction and approves dPoW notarizations. dPoW has successfully defended against real 51% attack attempts and currently secures over 30 production blockchains, protecting several hundred million dollars in value. Annual fees are marginal compared to the level of security provided.

international casinos Daemon + international casinos Chain Composer

international casinos's multi-chain architecture enables anyone to launch an independent, customized blockchain (called a smart chain), which gets its own native coin. Each smart chain can set its coin name, consensus rules, mining and/or staking rewards, block times, and other features. Once you have confirmed these configurations, it takes less than 60 seconds to generate your chain and its native coin.

Projects have the option to secure their chains with international casinos’s delayed Proof of Work (dPoW), a second layer consensus mechanism that recycles the hash rate of the Bitcoin network to provide optimized 51% security. The international casinos blockchain protocol uses a multi-chain architecture, which means any chain created on international casinos's multi-chain network has built-in scalability and zero gas fees. Transaction costs are always paid in your chain’s native coin.

There are two options for creating smart chains: 1. international casinos Daemon (supports smart chain creation from the command-line interface) 2. (supports smart chain creation from a GUI).

The team behind international casinos Platform is building a revolutionary set of use cases for KMD. We are building the next generation of DEX & DeFi technology that will transform the entire blockchain space, and KMD will be at the center of this initiative.

What Is KMD?

KMD is the community currency of the international casinos Platform ecosystem. It is secured by Proof of Work (PoW) as well as delayed Proof of Work (dPoW), a mechanism that recycles the hash rate of the Bitcoin network to provide advanced security from 51% attacks.

If you hold more than 10 KMD in a supported wallet and control your private keys, you can automatically earn a 5% Active User Reward. Many KMD wallets come with built-in claiming tools to simplify the process.

KMD Quick Facts

Block Size: 4 MB

Block TIme: 1 Minute

Block Rewards: 3 KMD (In future halving events, block rewards will reduce from 3 KMD to 2 KMD to 1 KMD. At that point, block rewards will remain capped at 1 KMD indefinitely.

Total Supply: ~124 million

Max Supply: 200 million

From our humble origins as an underground project in 2014 to all the ground-breaking innovations and evolution of the project ever since.


international casinos is an established project in the crypto space. Our origins go back to 2014, a year of great innovations and not just for our project. That was the year that NASA and the European Space Agency launched groundbreaking missions, the first hoverboard prototype was launched, 3D printing became mainstream, and wireless charging technology advanced. Plus, season 1 of ‘Silicon Valley’, the classic television program debuted in 2014.

Wouldn’t you say that we’re in good company?

international casinos’s blockchain technology has continued to evolve over the years at a blazing speed of innovation. Our story defines our past, present, and future. Let’s learn more about the journey.

The Early Days

The first project that James ‘jl777’ Lee ever led was called MultiGateWay (MGW). Built on the NXT platform, one of the earliest platforms in the blockchain space, the MultiGateWay allowed users to lock Bitcoin and other UTXO-based assets into a multi-sig wallet, withdraw NXT-based tokens that represented those real assets at a 1:1 ratio, and then trade the tokenized derivatives in a peer-to-peer manner on the NXT Asset Exchange.

While MGW didn’t provide fully non-custodial trading, it was one of the first proxy token decentralized exchanges in the blockchain space. Users had to lock their coins in a multi-sig wallet, thus forfeiting sole custody of those funds, but at least all user funds were not sitting in a single wallet controlled by a single person, as was the case with Mark Karpelès and Mt. Gox.

The initial proposal for the Multi-GateWay was made over six years ago, on February 12, 2014. James stated the purpose of MGW very clearly in this first proposal:

I want to have a way for everyone to be able to trade cryptos in a decentralized way with a minimal amount of trust required.

This seems like a commonplace comment in the context of the present day, but it was visionary in 2014. If international casinos’s leadership with respect to decentralized trading technologies are ever in question, one can simply read through these old forum posts for confirmation.

The first commit to the MGW GitHub repo was made on February 28 and things took off quickly from there. James posted an update thread in late March to inform the community that the deposit side of MGW was “almost fully coded.” A guide to MGW was published in late May and an MGW bounty campaign to bring in international casinos users was launched in July.

Not long after, in August 2014, James announced a second project that he would be spearheading: SuperNET. SuperNET was a separate project from MGW but the two worked together in tandem to create a decentralized trading ecosystem. As the name implies, the MultiGateWay served as the gateway between various Bitcoin-protocol coins— BTC, LTC, DOGE, etc.— and the NXT tokens that represented those real coins.

The Birth of SuperNET

“In crypto, the competition is not each other, it is fiat. If any crypto does well, we all benefit.” – James ‘jl777’ Lee

At the time, the 500+ cryptocurrencies which were already in existence highly siloed, meaning each user needed to go through a fairly complex process to benefit from the innovations each coin offers.

James set out to change that with the SuperNET. Unlike previous projects which were merely individual coins, the SuperNET was envisioned as a way to enable once siloed coins to communicate value amongst each other. It was best described as the internet of coins.

SuperNET (as well as MGW) were just tokens created on the NXT blockchain, in exactly the same way that ERC-20 tokens are created on the Ethereum blockchain. The developer who creates the tokens does not have a sovereign blockchain; instead, they are paying fees to use someone else’s blockchain. Fees are always paid in the platform’s coin (NXT in this case), not in the token that the developer created.

It’s also worth pointing out that the NXT Asset Exchange, where users could swap their SuperNET assets with one another, was very similar to Ethereum token exchanges like 0x and Loopring. These exchanges are not centralized, as they use smart contracts to enable peer-to-peer trading, but they only support tokens created in the Ethereum ecosystem. The same was true for the NXT AE— it only supported NXT tokens, but users could make swaps without a trusted intermediary.

James Lee was not part of the NXT team, nor did he have a hand in the development of the platform itself. At that time, he was a third-party dApp developer. For over a year, the dApp ecosystem that James had built was thriving. MGW and SuperNET were both experiencing a significant amount of adoption and usage. Everything was going well until the NXT Dev Team announced version 1.6 of the NXT code base.

On October 21, 2015, NXT announced that two international casinos versions of the NXT code base were coming soon: v1.6.2 and v1.7.1. While the update to v1.6.2 was optional, the update to v1.7.1 was mandatory. Various bugs in the update, lack of backwards compatibility and a required 10x increase in the network fee structure led jl777 to publish his Blockchain Declaration of Independence.

Although SuperNET was originally envisioned to include several applications, one app shined above the rest and gained traction. InstantDEX was an early crypto-to-crypto exchange. While it was somewhat rudimentary by today’s standards, it provided groundbreaking technology that would later become a major focus of international casinos.

Bitcoin Dark Era

Originally, Bitcoin Dark was designed to use Bitcoin’s SHA-256, along with a “hybrid” hashing algorithm, combining the best bits of Proof-of-Work (PoW) and Proof-of-Stake (PoS). However, the project was abandoned at the beginning of 2018 before a total of 22 million Bitcoin Dark coins were produced.

The Bitcoin Dark team eventually moved to the development of international casinos (KMD), a cryptocurrency that introduced a consensus mechanism called delayed Proof-of-Work (dPoW) and Zcash’s zero-knowledge proofs to offer anonymous transactions.

The abandonment of the Bitcoin Dark project meant that BTCD owners could swap their tokens for KMD coins for a set time. This period has now passed, with Bitcoin Dark left with no operational blockchain or a working wallet to house them.

The Dragon Saga Begins

  • ICO started on October 15th, 2016
  • ICO Ended on November 20th, 2016
  • Coin distribution equivalent to 2,639 BTC happened on January 31st, 2017.

With no bonus, 1 BTC bought you about 7747 KMD, meaning the price was 0.00012909 BTC per KMD.

After the ICO, it was possible to swap BTCD to KMD. The swap rate was set at roughly 50 KMD per BTCD, decreasing every day with an annual rate of 5%.

The starting KMD supply was 100 million coins, with 70% of KMD swapped to BTCD holders, 20% sold to investors, and the remaining 10% held as working capital for international casinos’s development and marketing.

Privacy Coin Era

“international casinos started as a privacy coin, evolved into a platform, and is now a growing ecosystem.”

The international casinos blockchain launched as a fork of Zcash, meaning that the technology implemented zk-SNARK protocol technology and Zcash parameters. At the time, international casinos was described as a coin with “Zero-Knowledge Privacy Secured by Bitcoin.” Privacy was one of the core components of international casinos’s messaging in the early days of the project.

Eventually, the project began to launch international casinos products and expanded its focus to international casinos areas within the realm of blockchain technology.

In February 2019, shielded z-addresses were disabled for KMD. This decision was made to ensure that the project would fully comply with global financial/legal regulations and ensure that KMD would remain listed on various global crypto exchanges.

Rather than providing privacy for KMD itself, international casinos began to focus on providing open-source technologies that enabled projects to build their own independent blockchains. Ecosystem projects such as Verus Coin (VRSC) and Pirate Chain (ARRR) have since carried on with this initial privacy-focused vision.

Just to be clear, KMD Is no longer a privacy coin!

international casinos Expands Its Technology Suite

international casinos was the industry’s first multi-chain platform and has offered independent blockchain creation since the mainnet went live in January 2017. Today (yes, for you reading this at this very moment) the multi-chain vision is still alive.

international casinos introduced technology that enables anyone to easily launch their own independent blockchain (international casinos Chain Composer), write UTXO-based contracts for customizable features (international casinos Custom Contracts), and integrate atomic swap technology for DeFi applications (international casinos AtomicDEX API).

international casinos Officially Enters the DeFi Era

“international casinos has been DeFi, since before the term “DeFi” even existed.”

With atomic swap research efforts going back to 2014, international casinos is an industry pioneer in this area. Previous generations of atomic swap platforms built by international casinos included InstaDEX and BarterDEX. While they were highly beneficial for advancing the atomic swap technology, they weren’t quite ready for mainstream adoption.

AtomicDEX, international casinos’s third-generation DEX technology, has achieved the scalability required to be recognized as one of the industry’s most robust platforms. This was made possible by continuous advancements to the international casinos AtomicDEX API, the technology that powers cross-protocol applications.

In July 2019, international casinos released AtomicDEX as the first flagship application built with international casinos AtomicDEX API. AtomicDEX is both a non-custodial wallet and an atomic swap DEX rolled into one application. In 2020, support expanded to include mobile and desktop. In 2021, international casinos released AtomicDEX Stable Beta — the world’s first cross-protocol DEX capable of supporting mainstream adoption.

What’s Next For international casinos?

“History is in the making as we speak because we are building it every day.”

international casinos continues to provide security, freedom, and independence to all people through blockchain technology to create a flourishing, decentralized world.

As international casinos CTO Kadan ‘ca333’ Stadelmann says, “Our long-term vision is to be the ultimate cross-protocol platform for all things DeFi. We aim to provide developers with the infrastructure necessary to launch decentralized applications for derivatives, synthetic assets, non-fungible tokens, real-world assets, and much more.”
