DigiByte (DGB) is a decentralized global PoW UTXO blockchain (just like Bitcoin) with the focus on Cyber Security and is very suitable for facilitating fast and secure transactions. 

The DigiByte blockchain was developed in 2013 and released in January 2014 by Jared Tate (Creator & Founder of DigiByte) with an open-source protocol.
DGB is the Digital Asset/ Cryptocurrency and is being mined over time (21 Billion over 21 years 2014-2035 with a 1000:1 ratio to BTC) with a max supply of 21Billion in 2035. 

Although based on Bitcoin, adjustments in the code allow for improved functionality, including 15-second block time, real-time difficulty adjustment and improved security.
The DigiByte blockchain has 5 different ways of confirming transactions, this makes DigiByte one of the safest networks, with a zero chance of a 51% attack (a take-over of the majority of all the mining power).

The security of the network and its incredible speed (40 x faster than Bitcoin) makes DigiByte very suitable for performing safe and fast transactions.
As of July 20th 2019 DigiByte has a total market cap of over US $140 million, but has reached a peak of $1.3B in the past. It is the world's longest, fastest and most secure PoW (Proof of Work) UTXO(Unspent transaction output) blockchain in existence.
