: Argentum is the Latin name for the element silver. Silver is a chemical element with the chemical symbol Ag (Greek: άργυρος árguros, Latin: argentum, both from the Indo-European root *arg- for "grey" or "shining") and atomic number 47.
It is the perfect name to represent this currency and the potential it has with a dedicated development team. Argentum is fast, unique, and secure. We have learned from many of the past crypto-currencies and created one that can rival any. Argentum brings innovation and experimentation that pushes the limits.

-Achieved 0% orphans for extended periods of time during testing in perfect conditions (currently achieving close to the same on pools). Orphans waste energy and that's why we have eliminated them.
Actual testing on arg.scryptmining.com:
-Maximum block size increased to 10mb
-Maximum signature operations per block maximum increased to 100k
-32 Second block time
The first two features are on the bitcoin hardfork wishlist. We wanted to create the first cryptographic currency with almost unlimited scalability. The signature operations per block were not increased as much as block size because it is unnecessary and theoretically unreachable as is. These capacity increases do not affect performance and only serve as a guarantee of the network's future capacity. The actual size of blocks and transactions is the minimum amount needed to accomplish the task.Difficulty
-Re-targets every 250 blocks Currency Creation
64 million total ARG. Once this limit is reached, it is increased by 1.1% annually, the rate of human population growth.
We opted for a fair launch to let everyone start mining at the same time.
Block 0-500: 0 ARG
Block 500-1000: 1 ARG
Block 1000-1500: 2 ARG
Block 1500+: block reward random from 1-5. This sort of configuration is more realistic and adds additional security to the network by adding more variability. It also discourages difficulty hopping.
Random block rewards: Rewards are not completely random but deterministic random. Argentum uses the last block hash as a seed to generate a "random" number. The same number always results from a given seed so the network will stay synced.Security
-Mined blocks mature after 30 confirms: Argentum is a fast currency but it does not compromise the safety of the blockchain in the process.Ports

You can either solo mine or mine in a pool.Solo
1. Launch the wallet after following the setup guide above
2. Configure your miner to connect to your local IP (Examples: 192.168.x.x:13581, 127.0.0.x:13581) using your RPC details.
3. Launch your miner.
Example: Example: cgminer.exe -–scrypt -o LOCALIP -u RPCUSERNAME -p RPCPASSWORDPool
1. Create an account at a pool. It is not necessary for P2pool as you will use your ARG address to receive payment.
2. Create a worker if you are not on a P2pool.
2. Launch your miner
Example: cgminer.exe -–scrypt -o POOL.COM -u POOL.USERNAME -p POOLPASSWORD
Example P2pool: cgminer.exe --scrypt -o P2POOL.COM -u ARGENTUMADDRESS -p ANYTHINGPools:
