Latest Version: 0.13.3.7 is released ! Aug 6 2017
Note: The roadmap has been completed. Segwit is activated. A new roadmap will be published soon.Styx will be pushed to the new roadmap

2017/2018 whitepaper: https://github.com/viacoin/documents/raw/master/whitepapers/Viacoin_whitepaper.pdf





Specifications:
Name: Viacoin
Symbol: VIA
Algorithm: Scrypt (POW)
Block time: 24 seconds (25x faster than Bitcoin)
Difficulty retarget: AntiGravityWave (every block)
Total supply: 23,000,000
Circulating Supply March 2017: 22,487,679

Auxpow/Merged mined with Litecoin
Merged mining allows a miner to mine for more than one block chain at the same time. The benefit is that every hash the miner does contributes to the total hash rate of both (all) currencies, and as a result they are all more secure.

Bitcoin magazine interview



Explaining it like you are 5

SegWit / Segregated Witness
Every transaction has certain information. Details of the exchange, signatures & an ID number.
SegWit separates the signatures from the transaction and into a parallel space.
  
Transaction malleability? Who cares?
Transaction malleability refers to a trick that allows an attacker to refer to a transaction but creates a different valid ID#.
Segwit solves this and will enable new means of protection against similar attacks.

Softfork: Old nodes will still see it all as valid.  Meaning the update won't break any older versions.
New dog, new tricks: Separating the signatures gives more freedom for scripting, customization and new layers of functionality.

Libsecp256K1
Wait Lib what?: Everything important in concurrency has to be signed & verified using Math. That Math can be s-l-o-w.
Libsecp256K1 is an update in how to use Math to get an increase in the speed up to 4.9x of verifying transactions and blocks.

Version Bits, Weak Blocks & More
Versionbits: Allow simultaneous Soft Fork changes to be implemented 29 at a time, up from the current limit of 1 !

Weak blocks: Allow miners & nodes to rebuild found blocks from locally storage transaction data rather then having to download full blocks.
A possible 90% or more reduction in peak bandwidth requirements for full node operations.


The Lightning Network
The Lightning Network takes this idea of payment channels to the next level by creating a general network
which anyone can use to make off-blockchain transactions.
Confidential transactions: Mask the transaction amount is a possibility. This is a great privacy improvement.
Tons of other benefits like reduced UTXO, to keep it simple, it requires less resource to run a wallet/node.


“What the Lightning Network is creating [is] a system where you can
create a payment channel on a general network, and by participating on this network, you can send bitcoin off-chain to anyone — and it never hits
the blockchain until you close out the channel.”

Another way of looking at this is to think about the relationship between users who have payment channels open with each other.
“Through somebody else, you can reach anybody else. So, maybe it’s Alice, Bob, Carol, and Dave — Alice has a relationship with Bob, Bob has a relationship with Carol, [and] Carol has a relationship with Dave. Alice can send money to Dave through Bob and Carol.”
Source Lightening Network explanation: http://coinjournal.net/a-simple-explanation-of-the-lightning-network/


Acinq graphical explorer for Bitcoin Lightning Network


Atomic cross chain Trading:
Is another possibility. 2 traders can trade As example Litecoin, Viacoin, Groestl or Syscoin with each other or against bitcoin.
You can see it as Shapeshift, only you won't be charged a ridiculous fee & it's decentralized!

Thank you for opening a new announcement. I think it's an important step for people to understand that the development team has totally changed.

As far as I know, Romano is a very competent developer and is already over delivering on fixes and features. He also helps other coins developers on fixing issues in their own coins.
I have myself downloaded and tested the Viacoin Core 0.13.2.1 wallet and node (still in development), and it seems to work really well. I can't wait for the segwit release.  Smiley

I'm a long term Viacoin investor and believer (I invested in the initial ICO in early 2014), and I strongly believe that it is currently greatly undervalued at a $1M market cap. I am buying more coins under 5k satoshis.

Ramano - Well done

I am always given more confidence from the persistently consistent updates of the epic progress resulting directly from your hard work!

I am sure that this is just the beginning and that there is much much more to come.

No hype like that first dev. Nothing but solid, steady developments coming from Romano. I definitely encourage people to take a look at this coin if they haven't already (or if they did back in the day but haven't since the new dev).

Romano clearly cares about the coin!
