Despite the unstable market situation, cryptocurrencies are steadily making their way to the public. Not only people now know what cryptocurrencies are, they are also starting to use them for a wide variety of real-life applications.
However, with adoption come regulations. Most big cryptocurrencies are already being regulated in one country or another. I’m not going to delve into the moral part of the matter, however I do believe that we all have the right to keep our possessions private, if we chose to do so. Here’s where Veil can help.
1 What is Veil?
Veil is a very promising cryptocurrency that combines the latest and most efficient privacy protocols and technologies to ensure the privacy of their users. While anonymous transactions are not something new, Veil has features that Monero, Dash and other similar coins don’t have.
Fairly new, Veil had a fair start: it had no ICO and no premine. It is being developed by Veil Labs – a team of 23 specialists and 3 advisers, partnered with several academic institutions. Their main focus is to work on the technological basis that allows cryptocurrencies to have better anonymity, performance and scalability.
Veil is the cryptocurrency that enjoys the innovations introduced by Veil Labs, as well as the means to found the project – a share of every emitted Veil token goes to Veil Labs. Funds that go to Veil Labs will not stake, meaning those funds will not disadvantage those staking in the network.
So far, Veil combines the best security features from Monero, Zerocoin and others, together with a very user-friendly experience and features such as transaction pruning and seed recovery. Plus, it already has some unique advantages over similar coins. Here’s what Veil has got so far:
Veil is based on the most secure blockchain software, the Bitcoin version 0.17.1
Veil’s cryptography-based privacy protocol is Zerocoin (zero-knowledge proofs), allowing Veil transactions to be anonymous.
Extract the archive and go to “bin” folder, then start “veil-qt.exe“, this will take time for a full synchronization.. however you can click on HIDE button (bottom right)
Now we will have to generate a mining address, to do that go to “settings” -> “Advanced Settings” -> “Console” and write “getnewminingaddress“. This will generate a new address that is meant for mining only.

Veil is a very promising project that might be of great help for those of us who look to have better privacy and safety. So far, Veil Labs has been doing things the right way. They are not rushing things. Instead, they are building a solid foundation to be able to further research and develop cryptography and blockchain technologies.
From the perspective of a GPU miner, Veil can be pretty interesting because it is ASIC resistant, for now anyway. Plus, it’s always a good idea to invest your hashing power in coins that have a future and Veil seems to have the potential to become the next big thing, or at least to have a long life.
