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.

A Ravencoin post on Medium from November 2017 references Game of Thrones when introducing this experimental currency:

“In the fictional world of Westeros, ravens are used as messengers who carry statements of truth. Ravencoin is a use case specific blockchain designed to carry statements of truth about who owns what assets”

Launched on January 3rd, 2018, the ninth anniversary of bitcoin’s launch, Ravencoin is an open-source project designed to enable instant payments to anyone around the world. The aim of the project is to create a blockchain optimized specifically for the transfer of assets such as tokens from one holder to another.
Ravencoin is a protocol based on a fork of the Bitcoin code which adds features specifically focused on allowing tokens to be issued on the Ravencoin blockchain. These tokens can have whatever properties the issue of the token decides - so they can be limited in quantity, named and be issued as securities or as collectibles. You can make your own security token within minutes and have it trade worldwide.

The X16R algorithm intends to solve the centralization of mining seen on the Bitcoin blockchain caused by the introduction of expensive and highly efficient Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) hardware. By randomizing the o rder of 16 different hashing algorithms, Raven makes ASICs difficult to develop, allowing room for anyone to be able to mine the Raven network without the disadvantage of competing with ASIC hardware. The Raven team has also committed to change the hashing algorithms if a Raven ASIC miner is ever developed.

Block reward of 5,000 RVN instead of 50 BTC.
Block time of 1 minute instead of 10.
Total coin supply of 21 Billion instead of 21 million.
