RavenCoin Change of Algorithm


From the Ravencoin dev team

”The Ravencoin Dev team has now confirmed the algorithm changes. We will be moving from X16R to X16RV2 on Tuesday Oct 01 2019 16:00:00 UTC

We are adding the algorithm Tiger into three seperate parts of the current X16R algo. The Tiger hash is performed before the algorithms Luffa512, Keccak512, and SHA512.

We will be releasing a new build this week or at the beginning of the next (2.5.0) that will have the algorithm switch in it. The new build will also be fixing some bugs, and adding some improvments into the Ravencoin Core Client.

We are recommending that all users/nodes update to 2.5.0 as soon as it comes out.

We will make an announcement when 2.5.0 is released”

We was a big fan of RavenCoin so we will keep an eye out for software as it comes out
