What is Ravencoin and the RVN Token?

Written By Ivan on Tech

May 08, 2021

Taking the best bits from the biggest blockchain in the industry, the Ravencoin fork also includes some upgrades to the challenges that have faced Bitcoin since its launch. The project has many similarities with the big orange coin, including having a Ravencoin halving event. But there are some key differences. Ravencoin is a decentralized peer-to-peer network that aims to make transacting any kind of asset - physical or virtual - across geographic borders seamless. Ravencoin has a truly decentralized ethos, featuring an ASIC-resistant mining algorithm to ensure token distribution is fair when users mine Ravencoin (RVN). Further, there was no pre-mine, pre-sale, or RVN token distribution to founders or the team at the time of launch. Moreover, transacting and storing the native RVN coin could not be easier thanks to the availability of the Ravencoin Wallet. 

In this article, we are going to dive deep into the Ravencoin fundamentals and explore the differences and similarities...

What is QuickSwap and the QUICK Token?

Written By Ivan on Tech

May 05, 2021

Decentralized finance (DeFi) has seen phenomenal growth in just a few years. The rise of the automated market maker (AMM) model has enabled DeFi to thrive. However, this has come at a cost. The congestion of Ethereum has caused gas fees to soar, causing many projects to look elsewhere for launching a blockchain project. Polygon, or the Matic Network as it was formerly known, is one of many layer-2 scaling solutions helping to scale the world’s most programmable blockchain. Created to expedite the process of building decentralized applications (dApps) and getting them to market, Polygon is host to several new blockchain projects, including QuickSwap. Powered by the QuickSwap token (QUICK), and the Dragon’s Quick token (dQUICK), QuickSwap works much like popular AMM Uniswap. However, there are some key differences. If you're wondering, “what is QuickSwap?” and, “what is the QUICK token used for?”, then you’re about to find out!
