Exchanges listing Ravencoin
Ravencoin's popularity is also driven by where it can be traded. Typically it is more difficult to get it listed with prime exchanges as they require a certain volume. Therefore the community tries to build the momentum with some smaller exchanges. Sofar the progress in 2018 has been good, but we still need more volunteers to step in to contact exchanges and follow-up. Follow also the progress on Twitter https://twitter.com/ravencoinnews.

This page shall provide information and guidelines on how to bring the Ravencoin to an exchange. It should be noted that the process can require some work, but getting listed in an exchange is an important process to get Ravencoin recognized by a larger public.
In the following a couple of steps which You typically find in an application.
Is Ravencoin a security?
No. Some exchanges require a legal assessment addressing whether RVN is a security under U.S law before accepting an application for listing. An article on this issue has been compiled by @K27#1391 and is available here. This document can be used for exchanges requesting a legal memorandum in the application process.
What is Ravencoin
Ravencoin was first announced in October of 2017 at MIT. In the months leading to the official launch on January 3rd, 2018, Ravencoin gained support at several conferences and colleges. Self-described as "...a use case specific blockchain designed to carry statements of truth about who owns what asset" Ravencoin's naming pays homage to the ravens of the fictional world of Westeros. In the two months after its launch, Ravencoin has seen an exponential groundswell of community support, including the support of the larger mining community. Ravencoin is the first coin to leverage the ASIC resistant x16r algorithm and is a completely Proof of Work(PoW) coin. No ICO was undertaken, and neither was a pre-mine utilized. Ravencoin has attracted many individuals to the community and project due to its fair and grassroots hallmarks of the original Bitcoin launch. Ravencoin differs however from Bitcoin with an increased block reward size, and a faster block time, features which developers have alluded to setting the groundwork for Ethereum style asset transfers and tokens. Overstock.com has been investing time and developers to contribute to the project, and even mining the token.
RVN is a project in development with a dedicated community. In the next phase, it will have a native asset layer built into the protocol to allow people to easily tokenize any asset that can be transferred between parties. In principle, one can tokenize anything, but a main focus and functionality will be the ability to tokenize securities, as the protocol will also be able to pay out dividends.
Some advantages Ravencoin will have to token issuers:
- more secure chain
- more censorship resistant
- more decentralized
- simpler / more elegant
- native in the protocol
- will allow dividends
- will allow messaging
ASIC resistance and a wider and fairer distribution is another advantage of Ravencoin. By this time period in Bitcoin's history, the coin had less than a dozen miners - RVN has thousands. Ravencoin is one of the most widely distributed coins - if not THE most.
Who is the CEO
As RVN is an open source project there is no CEO. Individual persons are presenting and can bring applications forward though.
What is an NDA and can I sign it?
The NDA - a non-disclosure agreement - is an agreement to restrict information from spreading outside the agreeing parties. A company uses NDAs to limit information spreading. Afterall listing on an exchange is a negotiation. The NDA is limiting the information spread around that process. If You sign an NDA, this also means that You need to be cautious what information to be spread also to the community.
Exchange Target List
Below is a table of the top 200+ exchanges by volume (as of April 5, 2018). We will want to use this list as our source of truth for which exchanges have been contacted, which ones we are in active discussions with, which ones we will not be moving forward with (possibly due to fees). Everyone can assign themselves to each exchange. Note that this is not a recommendation for a specific exchange. For the Status column, let's try and be consistent so we all know what it means so let's use the following:
|Blank||No one yet has contacted the exchange|
|Yellow||Exchange contacted, discord handle added, date added|
|Red||Exchange rejected, explanation or response in notes field|
|Blue||Exchange wants to go ahead, but requires, Fee, NDA or legal papers. In this case the fields should be marked|
|Warning||Exchange likely a scam|

We aren't against adding any specific tokens but we are perfecting our service before adding any more. We only just added Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash. Maybe in the future Ravencoin will be available with Coinmama but I wouldn't be able to say if and when that could be. Let me know if you have any questions.
Best regards, Nathan Happiness Hero
