What is Coin Core

Coin Core is a highly configurable middleware application for creating and managing virtual currency economies. It can be used to:

  • Issue a variety of virtual assets for use as currencies, electronic money, or loyalty/reward points
  • Freely configure coin transaction types to provide the functionality required by your business model, such as charge, payment, and refund
  • Allow third parties to issue their own coins within your coin economy
  • View and query transaction history by date, account, and type

Coin Core is a part of the Core series of applications in the Orb DLT product family. Other Core series applications provide functionality for use by Coin Core or provide insight into activities within a coin economy.

  • Account Core enables the creation of accounts for use with Coin Core.
  • Audit Core is a standalone audit service that can be used to generate tamper evidence for virtually any kind of data. It can be run by the coin issuer or, more ideally, by third parties.
