Apollo currency is a coin built on the core of the NXT project and distributed through an airdrop to NXT holders. Apollo currency (APL) was established in 14.01.2017 by the Apollo foundation. The main goal of the company is to provide users with “all-in-one” cryptocurrency that will provide as many features as possible. This currency is aimed to reduce the need to use multiple currencies for various activities. While many cryptocurrencies are specifically made to gain some niche users, Apollo aims to become useful for any crypto user. Apollo currency had no ICO but was fully pre-mined.

However, the main development and research focus of the company is on the Apollo blockchain’s privacy and security. The aim of the process is to give Apollo’s customers a way to perform totally untraceable and secure transactions. In the Apollo whitepaper it is said that one of the major threats to the whole industry is a possibility of governmental restrictions and deanonymization of crypto users. Due to this fact, the development team of the project is actively working on making Apollo currency exchange as private as is technically possible in terms of modern computer science.

The chairman of the Apollo foundation is John McAfee - famous as the founder of McAfee antivirus and a number of other successful projects.
