About:

In 2017, our team upgraded and rebranded an existing coin (Kittehcoin/MEOW) as Lynx. How? We successfully forked Litecoin and ported the Kittehcoin blockchain history to it. This gives Lynx all the benefits and up-to-date security features of Litecoin with the full transaction history of Kittehcoin. These upgrades fixed the flaws in the original coin and revived its community of users. It’s cryptocurrency from the past; redesigned for the future.  

Why did we fix an old coin? Rather than start from scratch and drift alone at sea, we thought it would be more interesting to support an existing and established community. We figured: why build an audience from scratch when one already exists?

What problem does Lynx solve? Unlike many other coins, Lynx is eco-friendly and requires miniscule energy consumption (and technical expertise) to mine the coin. At Lynx, we believe that for cryptocurrency to be considered a secure, financial solution for today’s global marketplace, it must be created with global sustainability in mind. The energy costs of high-volume mining rigs are too demanding and they create an over-reliance on fossil fuels. Lynx business rules discourage high-volume mining rigs because our code purposefully lacks incentives to mine it for profit. Here are some of the business rules that help us achieve this goal:
 
1. The mining reward takes one week to “mature.”
2. The individual mining reward is only 1 Lynx (+ fees).
3. The cost of a transaction is 0.0001 Lynx/kb.

We designed Lynx to have minimal environmental impact because we’re committed to creating global solutions and maintaining a small carbon footprint. Lynx business rules encourage the use of low-cost computing (like a Raspberry Pi which only consumes less than 3 watts of electricity) to mine the coin. As a result, the electrical cost to maintain the Lynx network is a fraction of a fraction which results in a low environmental impact. The emphasis on low-cost computing also creates a decentralized, broad miner base which also strengthens the stability and security of the currency.

What makes Lynx cryptocurrency unique?

In addition to fixing an old coin (Kittehcoin) and making it eco-friendly, Lynx was designed with techies (high-end developers and programming experts) and non-techies in mind. In fact, we know there are more non-techies in the world than technical experts (!), and we wanted to provide them with an opportunity to get involved in Lynx behind-the-scenes. Our goal is to build an inclusive community that welcomes everyone to participate in the project. It’s one of the reasons we resurrected an old coin instead of building a new one from scratch. Our philosophy is a rising tide lifts all boats; the more people share the same goal, the better it is for everyone involved.

The “Lynx Cryptocurrency Installer” mines Lynx, securely confirms global transactions (yes, it’s a full node) --  and the best part? Anyone can set it up because it runs on a Raspberry Pi.

Congrats on this project! It's great to see Kittehcoin get fixed and running with a purpose. Can't wait to fire up my Raspberry Pi!

what's the purpose again of this coin? yes, you revived it from kittehcoin, but this one is for trading only from what i deduced? and the billion supply, this will be very cheap.

what's the purpose again of this coin?

There is a case use built into the brandname.

Website crossLYNX.
Basically paid adverting or linkback placements.
(payment automated per click) maybe.  else just placement fee.

@aL33CtWW


How did you solve the "creating something from nothing" dilemma?

and how much is pre-mined? and how much of the mined coins are in the hands of the people behind lynx?

to me a macOS wallet is always a good sign for a cryptocurrency. A developer with any modicum of skill should be able to release a macOS GUI binary. So many shitcoins just give you a mega.nz download link for a Windows binary and that's it.

If you wanted to be eco-friendly, why not Proof of Stake (PoS) or different algorithm like scryt-n, neoscrypt, or other ASIC-resistant algorithms? Kind of seems rigged at this point to have 1 LYNX mined when there was a hard fork from Kitteh where the mining reward scheme was completely different.

Who'd want to mine 1 LYNX at a time? Even if you mined all blocks in a day, 2880 blocks, even at $0.01 a LYNX, that's $28.80. The mining incentives are just all wrong and completely skewed towards someone who owned KittehCoins.

as much as i would love to herd kittehs with raspberry pi's, i fear i must agree with the above assessment.

that being said, i am sure lots of users will run ur iso in the wild, if only to mine with a rpi. therefore i wish you the best of luck!


You should watch the interview from about a week or so ago. Dev team has more plans than just raspi mining for mining's sake. Not sure any of it will come true, but he's delivered everything promised so far.

Our development team has no part in a premine. If the original dev team did one in 2013, we weren't part of it. It is likely that address belongs to the exchange Cryptopia. -ben

Sun, The objective was to take the economics of the mining for profit concept and turn it on it's head. No one that mines this coin will make money (at least with the current valuations on the street). If the miner is interested in mining for profit, lots of of other coins are great candidates for this. The competition for more hashing power begins and an economically inefficient project unfolds. Our concept is to make it so easy for holders and interested parties to participate in this coin, and at such a low cost, that the barrier to entry would be the lowest that we could find in this space. Instead of feeding a few pigs in a sty, we are feeding bees in a hive. This provides a far more stable platform to build upon. This is the concept at least. It is often forgot in this space that no relationship exists between mining hash power and the ability for the average block time to be met - as long as the hashing power is somewhere between zero and infinity. For a long term sustainable emerging coin concept like ours, our bet is to be closer to zero then infinity. -ben

Total supply: 92 million
Launched 5 days, the current coin is 77 million?
What is that?

I like this approach. Good luck to all  Smiley

25 billion to 90 billion. The hard fork from kitteh coin (meow) means all previous owners of the coin got airdrop. So, I imagine 77/90 billion is same as previous circulating supply.

I reread reward so it seems reward is 1 lynx per Kb. So you cap it at 10. Got it.

Script allows asic miners. Is your structure enough to stop asic mining? Multi pool.us has 2gh/s. Your raspberry pi can't mine rewards, just distribute the block chain.

So you suggest we should buy on exchange as the way to get coins?

Can we buy hosting on your site with lynx?

"Can we buy hosting on your site with lynx?"

Ha, That is a great question and one that none of my customers have asked me yet. I suppose yes, you could! I'd be open to it. We have many customers that pay for a year in advance for 13 months of service. We provide that discount as a reward for the advance payment. IT is non-refundable though, but we have a great reputation and I'm happy to provide references. If this is of interest to you, let me know via DM. https://deliverypath.com
