PIVX (or Private Instant Verified Transaction) is a privacy-centric Proof-of-Stake cryptocurrency forked from DASH. It is built to ensure your store of value, transactional security, privacy and fungibility. The PIVX ecosystem has a very interesting blend of governance. Like DASH it has masternodes but it also implements Proof of Stake

Launched on Feb 1st, 2016 under the name of Darknet (DNET), after developments and increased community involvement, it was decided to professionally rebrand and officially change the name to PIVX to more accurately reflect the underpinnings of the community ideals and ideologies being hard-coded into the cryptocurrency.

The main goal is to achieve near instant private transactions and a governance that helps sustain the network for the benefit of all of the users involved.

While it is well on its way to achieving this, some of the features are under development and should appear in the near future.
