Intercoin Technology is essentially based around four things:
The Qbix Platform which helps communities to build and deploy social apps, and add payments to them similarly to WeChat, Facebook and iMessage, but in a completely open source manner.
Kademlia, a network addressing technique pioneered in 2002 and used in projects from BitTorrent to SAFE Network. It enables partitioning (sharding) the network by community and even by individual token, by helping select a group of validators to watch and approve transactions for each token.
XRP Ledger Consensus Process which is a way for validators to maintain consensus about transactions, and gossip any violations or forks among one another.
