Ravencoin (RVN) Information{coin_name} ({symbol}) Information

Ravencoin is a peer-to-peer blockchain, handling the efficient creation and transfer of assets from one party to another.

Ravencoin is a digital peer to peer network that aims to implement a use case specific blockchain, designed to efficiently handle one specific function: the transfer of assets from one party to another. Built on a fork of the Bitcoin code, Ravencoin was launched January 3rd, 2018, and is a truly open source project (no ICO or masternodes). It focuses on building a useful technology, with a strong and growing community.

Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers

Where's the whitepaper?
A paper describing the intention for Ravencoin is available on the site here other papers are also linked here:
What's the max supply?
21 billion
When will RVN be on more / better exchanges?
RVN is listed on multiple exchanges. There's an exchange liaison group on discord with a number of people talking to exchanges and software and hardware wallets. The group has a working document Exchanges and an Exchange FAQ on this wiki.
Which pool is best?
All the Pools are pretty good, and as with most things tech, they all have issues from time to time. On average you'll get a larger share of fewer blocks with the smaller pools and a smaller share of more blocks with the larger pools. There are support channels for most of the pools on Discord. The pools can be compared here. Mining on a big pool will give you many tiny payouts, vs mining on a small pool will give you fewer large payouts. Over time it will average out and you will earn the same amount of coins. A good recommendation when choosing a pool is any pool not in the top 3 highest hashrate, but any other pool with at least around 0,5% of network hash rate so the pool will hit some blocks each day. Or if we want to help build up a tiny pool, go for an even smaller one. The reason we want to not go for the pools with the highest hashrate is to spread the hash and secure our network.
Why is the difficulty going up / down?
The network tries to maintain 1 block being solved per minute over 2016 blocks before retargeting difficulty. If miners have found more than 1 block per minute during the previous 2016 blocks the network difficulty will go up to bring the average block time back to 1 per minute. If miners are solving blocks slower the opposite will happen.
What's the roadmap for Ravencoin? All papers are linked to from The Development section also summarizes all roadmap phases.
Any ICO/Premine/Masternodes?
No. Ravencoin had a fair launch, open source project focused on building good code with a good use-case. It was announced on twitter and discussed at several meetups months prior to launch. There's a timeline of some of these events here Further points about the launch where made on Telegram on the 6th May 2018
The devs should do <insert topic here> / Why aren't the devs doing <insert topic here>?
This is an open source project. You can do whatever you want with it. The devs are focused on the code development inline with the roadmap. Members of the community can build tools and websites around the coin that they think could be useful.
What's the halving rate?
The same as bitcoin so every 4 years or so. 2100000 blocks (1block / min * 60mins * 24hrs * 365 days * 4yrs) Please check this link:
Can I mine with my CPU / CPU or GPU mining which is better?
CPU mining is not worthwhile anymore. You can mine with your CPU using the wallet (setgenerate true -1 to use all your CPUs, however you are extremely unlikely to mine a block). The network hash rate is very large so a single CPU isn't going to contribute much.

Crypto projects that promise financial returns are often lying. Given the choice of an uncomfortable truth or a comforting lie, many will choose the lie. Strong, security focused projects don’t make return promises, they are realistic and focus on risks and how to limit them.

@Ravencoin you don't own this project, these tweets are not your responsibility. This is a forward statement negatively affecting my portfolio. Are you shorting $RVN? Do you ever make positive forward statements regarding the future potential rise in $RVN value? No? Why not?…

As interest increases in crypto projects increases, remain cautious. The industry is speculative and very risky. Ravencoin is speculative from an investment standpoint. You could lose all you invest. The project could fail or even if it works not have economic value. Careful!
