Korvan is an experimental digital currency forked from Bitcoin 0.16.2 that enables instant payments to
anyone, anywhere in the world. Korvan Network uses peer-to-peer technology to operate
with no central authority: managing transactions and issuing money are carried
out collectively by the network. Korvan is the name of open source
software which enables the use of this currency.

The project name is a play on the archaic word korva meaning edge - referring to the focus we have on developing cutting edge technology and to be the most efficient cryptocurrency for on-chain utilities in the blockchain sector. Korvan will start life as a proof-of-work only blockchain til our titan release is completed which is a currently in active development shortly have launch you can track our progress on branch proof-of-stake note all updates will be released in a easy to understand format bi-weekly. Currently the team consit of Simon a university graduate in computer science looking to change how business is done on the blockchain and Zack a self-taught developer fulent in many programming languages seeking to build disruptive technology. Interested in running a pool or other services built on Korvan feel free to join us on discord to discuss partnerships. A small coin sale [32 Masternodes] on discord will take place to jump start project growth, any unsold coins will be burned. These funds will cover exchange listing fees, design cost, marketing, and roadmap development. Each feature in our roadmap will have it's own whitepaper followed by the Korvan purplepaper currently being refined.

Korvan is second blockchain to use Balloon a hashing function that demonstrates memory-hardness while also using a small memory-footprint to verify proofs, this makes it possible for low-memory devices to run full network nodes. Balloon supports both CPU and GPU mining, balloon could be considered a modular proof-of-work algorithm based around how easy it is to introduce different inputs length, memory cost and mixing parameters so we can prevent asic and fpga mining. Special thanks to barrystyle for porting balloon for proof of work use. Balloon hash whitepaper:https://eprint.iacr.org/2016/027.pdf

Just updated the ann with more info on covering masternodes, block reward will be 10 KVN after the instant mine protection period ends on block 10K. During this period blocks will start around 0.0002 and increase each block.

Full BIP 39 and BIP44 with the ability to use your existing hardware seed phrase to generate Korvan addresses and privkeys.
This is to make recovering funds easier for the end user. Will cover mainly twitter to start, more to come on our identities soon.
But currently I am open for voice chat if anyone would like!

What is Algo Balloon? How to mine this coin. Can any one tell me which miner software should use to mine this coin. Most of the MN coins are trash, they are creating for money once their bags filled will stop project, I hope this project can't do that.

Hello just updated the ann with details on Balloon hash, you'll be able to mine with cpu and nvidia gpu when we launch. Yes we understand that, we only plan to raise the initial funds to speedup project growth to be able go head-to-head with similar projects backed by millions of investor dollars. I am open to chat if anyone has anymore questions!

 korvan network is a big project. There should be a larger work team to develop this token. ico needs to scale to make us more twork istrustworthy about it.

Correct funding will allow for us to expand our current goals and hire more developers as we progress the current titan roadmap, which we believe will put Korvan in the media spotlight as kChains and kWeb overtake other systems created by various parties focused around similar technology.

A small section about the proof of work algorithm that simply covers technical facts nothing to be upset over it can be rewritten. We respect your work on balloon good luck with deft. Also I have a few questions in regards to balloon if you'd like to join our discord one day cheers!

Edit: Just rewrote it and gave you a special thanks for the work on balloon proof of work.
