X15 algorithm – mining

X15 is a hashing algorithm which utilizes 15 different hash functions what makes X15 algorithm very resistant to attacks. The principle of work is based on the classic X11 and won’t cause any difficulties to the users who mined cryptocurrency on X11 or X13. There have been included BLAKE, BMW, Groestl, JH, Keccak, Skein, Luffa, Cubehash, Shavite, Simd, Echo, Hamsi, Fugue, Shabal and Whirlpool.


X15 Algorithm Review

Security is one of the largest advantages of this algorithm. Even if the invaders hack one of 15 hash functions, developers simply define this issue and improve that function to make it more resistant. To hack the entire system, invaders have to pass through all 15 functions. It is almost impossible.
