The DERO Project has written a unique new blockchain technology that is based on the Dag and CryptoNote protocol with double spend protection. Dero's goal is to create a unique state of the art blockchain technology with enhanced reliability, privacy, security, usability, and portability by bringing together some of the best proven technologies like the CryptoNote protocol and smart contracts, thereby allowing for the creation of truly private smart contracts.
The Dero development team has implemented complete SSL across the Dero network which is a first on any blockchain. This encrypts the entirety of our network traffic, which greatly reduces our attack surface, while simultaneously preventing ISPs or other users from analyzing Dero’s network traffic.
First blockchain to have: DeroDAG + Cryptonote + Bulletproofs + Complete SSL + POW .
Blocktime 12 secs + Confirmation times 2 mins.
Traditional 51% attacks are not possible on DERO network.
Dero is one of the very few blockchains built from scratch:

Exchanges & Stats:
Premine total: 2 million Dero( ~10% of total supply)
Dero has no ICO, or community funding of any kind. A premine was deemed to be necessary for the long term development and success of the project.
Premine coins are not locked atm as DERO Atlantis network runs 10 times faster than original network. DERO Atlantis network has 12 seconds block-time compared to 2 mins original.
Original Plan to lock premine was based on structure mentioned in https://github.com/deroproject/documentation/blob/master/WhitePaper.md But due to numerous innovations in DERO blockchain expect minor changes in premine structure for the betterment and further advancement of DERO Project.
