info_outline What is Ravencoin



Short Description

What is Ravencoin? To us, the RVN community, it's a new open-source project intended to see if a use case specific blockchain designed to be focused on the transfer of assets can develop technology which provides security or functional advantages for certain projects. Specifically working on things like RSK, which will allow Solidity to work on this chain, will be huge for Ravencoin in the future. RVN was launched January 3rd, 2018 with very little info regarding the future of the project. Since then, several community members have learned that there is an active development team on this coin, and the super clean wallet client and lightning fast network are only the beginning

The RVN team is launching their coin in the spirit of Bitcoin, code first. We hope to keep you updated in this thread as to work being done on RVN, as that information becomes available to us. But you don't need to wait for us or take our word for it. Ravencoin is open source and ANYONE is free to contribute to the project, please, join the team in GitHub!

Ravencoin was launched in the interest of fair distribution. There is no ICO, no pre-mine, and you can mine RVN on readily available consumer-grade hardware! Several of us have been mining this coin since launch, and can attest that you can still currently hit blocks solo mining with your CPU through the wallet client, how long this will last, we can not say (Update: as of this writing February 2018, 6 RVN pools exist, solo mining has officially become difficult). We have learned, however, that the team is very dedicated to making RVN an ASIC resistant project now and into the future. We believe in RVN as a project and aim to help the project grow, and we're happy to have you join us!.

You can create your own cryptocurrency or other digital asset in five minutes using the Ravencoin protocol. Try it. 107 favorite
There are no compliance functions built in to the code of Ravencoin. This is by design. No protocol can ever comply with all global regulations in real time. Better to have a censorship resistant base layer that allows users to build & customize 2nd layer solutions as they wish. 97 favorite

Because Ravencoin is decentralized and open source it does not have the profit metric pressures of funded projects. This means this protocol does not have traditional “competitors”. It is free for anyone to use and we all benefit from its successes, mistakes, growth and learning. 122 favorite
