1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [ANN] Ravencoin [RVN] PoW GPU Mining | Asset Transfer Blockchain (Updated ANN) on: April 02, 2018, 03:49:23 AM

UPDATE: Raven has recently updated and forked as of October 1st, 2019.  Please ensure your client is updated to v2.5 or greater otherwise your wallet may be looking at the wrong chain.
Ravencoin was officially launched on January 3rd 2018 with the vision of becoming a community coin, meaning anyone is able to contribute and add to the project.  It is not owned by one individual or a team of developers. As such, while I am posting this announcement with updated information, I am not the founder nor a developer, just a volunteer that is looking to help inform the public.  This is a new open-source project that anyone can contribute towards with the goal of utilizing the blockchain to facilitate the transfer of assets.  

Most people have a hard time conceptualizing what "assets" are so I'll do my best to try to give examples of assets: Assets can come in a variety of types, such as financial instruments such as security tokens/stocks/bonds/deeds/etc as well as gaming items (ex. a sword)/conventional asset management/managing  distributions for co-ops/digital art.  There are a lot of real-world applications that this blockchain is intended to disrupt and improve. Ravencoin is intended to be the rails to these assets and will power the transfer of assets through raven's decentralized trust-less network, which is why there was no premine/developer reward/etc and was launched fairly to instill trust in the network.

The core developers are currently focused on building the asset layer which will allow Ravencoin to facilitate the transfer of assets.  There is a hard-fork planned for the network to implement this additional asset layer in around October/November 2018 time frame.  This hard-fork will not create multiple coins as it will be an upgrade and the balance that you currently have will be transferred over to the new chain.  No additional coins will be given out from the fork.  

The Ravencoin protocol will support RSK / solidity but ALSO have a native capability built in which makes it easier for many use cases. Additional capabilities will include messaging and dividends. More information to come soon on this matter. Ravencoin will eventually support new token launches and facilitate exchanging/transferring tokens, its unclear at this point what the primary use of those tokens will be, but it can be a wide array of purposes.

Project Info:
Ravencoin was launched in the interest of fair distribution. Miners from all around the world have added to the network to create one of the strongest decentralized networks in existence.  There is no ICO, no pre-mine, no masternodes, or any other gimmicky feature, and you can mine RVN using AMD or NVIDIA GPUs. Raven is focused on maintaining a decentralized network and the core developers have expressed their intent to change the algorithm should an ASIC ever be launched on Raven's network.
