The COSINE-100 experiment searches for dark-matter interactions using an array of scintillating NaI(Tl) crystals, that serve both as a WIMP-interaction target and detector, in the low-background environment of the Yangyang underground laboratory. The main goal is to check the annual modulation signal observed by DAMA/LIBRA in an NaI(Tl) crystal array. The experiment has been running for more than 1.5 years stably and several analyses were performed based on the current energy threshold of ~2 keV with a background rate of roughly 3 counts/day/kg/keV in the energy region between 2 and 6 keV. The performance of the detector and recent results will be presented.
