Like many crypto-currencies, Viacoin seeks to offer secure peer-to-peer transactions.
However, Viacoin distinguishes itself by offering users a 24 second block time, minimal transaction fees, and a strong network hashrate. These features were developed to make Viacoin a good option for fast and secure transactions.
VIA operates in a similar fashion to Bitcoin but achieves rapid transaction speeds by integrating into decentralized asset transactions using blockchain technology. The hashtime lock, an important feature of this coin, allows users to make secure transactions between two parties without the risk of a third party intervening. Further, Viacoin users are able to secure a transaction for a given period of time which, allows users to make changes to a transaction while ensuring security.
