About RavenCoin

RavenCoin is an open source project built on a fork of the bitcoin code. RavenCoin aims to implement a blockchain which is optimized specifically for the use case of transferring assets such as tokens from one holder to another.

To avoid centralized ASIC mining of RavenCoin the developers created a new algorithm, x16r. This algorithm is unique because the order of the 16 hashing algorithms is constantly changed based on the hash of the previous block. This randomness of hashing algorithms makes it reasonably resistant to ASIC development. A more detailed explanation of the algorithm can be found here

RavenCoin was launched on the 3rd of January 2018. A fair launch with no pre-mine. Announced on twitter:
