Fair distribution

Widest ever initial distribution pays over 30 years of blockchain history

World Record Initial Distribution

This currency launches with the widest ever initial coin distribution - provably. On any mature and well-used blockchain, a large amount of economic trickle-down occurs; coins are dispersed very widely. A snapshot of such a blockchain's chainstate can capture several years of coin dissemination.

This is what makes a chainstate-based initial offering so attractive as a fair means to freely distribute a new coin.

Wanting to go further, we are combining chainstates of four mature, respected coins to capture over 30 years of cumulative blockchain history. Over 30 million individual addresses from Bitcoin, Litecoin Cash, Dash and Doge will all automatically receive a proportional amount of Ring.

1. CPU Mining with Minotaur

Minotaur, our brand new hashing algorithm, allows you to mine with your CPU, right from within the wallet (or by using an external mining program). Minotaur is designed to be tortuous for graphics cards, FPGAs and ASICs. It's also designed to make core count more important than core performance, harkening back to Satoshi's "one core, one vote" ideal.

The algorithm dynamically configures a labyrinth of 21 interconnected nodes, each representing a different hash algorithm from a pool of sixteen types. The algorithm continues to morph as the hapless minotaur moves from node to node; he only learns which node he must visit next upon completion of the hashing task at the current node.

Litecoin Cash Hive

2. Hive Mining

Hive Mining technology, developed on Litecoin Cash by the same dev team, now meets a worldwide audience. Hive brings an additional and extremely energy-efficient mining dimension to the blockchain.

On-chain agents (dwarves) are created who mine on your behalf, eliminating the need for specialized hardware. Anything from a Raspberry Pi to your normal desktop PC is fine.

Through Ring, we are now able to offer Hive Mining to anyone who already holds one of our claim coins. Become a Dwarf master and earn coins while securing the blockchain!

3. Proof of Play

We have developed an extensible framework allowing gameplay to generate blocks and secure the blockchain.

This means users can play games right within the wallet in order to earn rewards, but it's no "play a game and we'll toss you a coin" gimmick. The user's gameplay is directly used to generate a normal transaction-containing block which secures the network.

While our initial launch will feature one in-wallet game (a 2d tile-placement game), we plan to add more games over time, as well as allow third-party game developers to implement their own games or integrate with existing titles.

Proof-of-play mining gives a zero-investment way for new users to start to earn Ring even if they are not holding any of the claimable coins.

The Rialto

Coming soon:
The rialto

Can you really trust the companies offering supposedly fully encrypted chat? They may say the encryption is end to end. They may say they have no mandated backdoor.

We believe people have a higher level of trust in the encryption protecting their cryptocurrencies than in the offerings from any of these companies.

Shortly, Ring will introduce The Rialto. Shakespeare's Rialto was a street in Venice where merchants would meet and discretely conduct their business. Ours is a completely decentralised chat platform with integrated low-friction payment system, all powered by the same encryption you trust every day to protect your coins.
