Token Description & Project Background

Ravencoin is a digital peer-to-peer transaction network.

The Ravencoin network was built upon a fork of the Bitcoin network, thus providing it with the decentralized security of Bitcoin’s algorithms.

The RVN token was designed as an internal currency for the Ravencoin blockchain, facilitating transfers. RVN  launched in 2018 with no public sale or set allocations.

Ravencoin has introduced four new primary capabilities to the code: a modified issuance schedule (with a block reward of 5,000 RVN); a block time reduced to one minute; a coin supply capped at 21 billion (a thousand times that of Bitcoin); and the mining algorithm KAWPOW (a combination of the formerly named X16R and X16RV2 algorithms) that intends to mitigate the mining centralization associated with ASIC hardware. Additionally, the use of KAWPOW algorithms enhances the security of the network as it is resistant to ASIC hardware.

Acting as a competitor to the likes of Ethereum and Solana, the Ravencoin network seeks to streamline asset transfer and simplify token issuance (for which the Bitcoin network is not ideal).

On the Ravencoin network, projects and developers can create tokens that represent anything they want tokenized, for example NFTs, stock shares. The possibilities are supposedly endless.

Ravencoin was led by Bruce Fenton, Tron Black (Lead Developer) and Jeremy Anderson (Developer with the support of ~430 Bitcoin developers.
