Ravencoin is a crypto currency that was created to transfer assets efficiently between peers, originally developed using Bitcoin's hard fork code. It was produced as an alternative to the Bitcoin blockchain and ERC-20 protocols. Ravencoin is named George RR. The famous novel series written by Martin is from the mailbirds of Westeros, a fictional continent in the Game Of Thrones series The Dance of Ice and Fire series. Ravencoin's short name is RVN and its maximum supply is set at 21 billion.
The release date of Ravencoin is set as October 31, 2017. The date of the release of mining activities was started on January 3, 2018, to refer to Bitcoin, to coincide with the 9th anniversary of the emergence of Bitcoin. Ravencoin was developed in a gradual process. The development of the platform and the x16r mining algorithm are currently in progress. Thanks to this new algorithm, it is aimed to eliminate the dominance of mining pools and the use of ASIC mining devices. In short, you don't have to use ASIC devices for RVN mining.
