Ravencoin is a Proof of Work cryptocurrency forked from the Bitcoin codebase.Ravencoin is designed to assist in the creation and transfer of digital assets. Unlike Bitcoin, which requires a second layer to issue tokens, Ravencoin has asset issuance built into the protocol level. Unlike Ethereum, which requires the creation of complicated smart contracts to issue tokens, Ravencoin allows even a novice user to create a variety of asset types in just minutes, using a simple, graphical user interface. One of the most significant things about RVN is that administrator of an asset can use the Ravencoin network to send messages to the holders of their token, and even pay out rewards/dividends in Ravencoin or the asset of their choosing. The applications of these features are unlimited, but some common examples include tokenizing securities, land rights, artwork, antiques/collectors items, commodities, contracts, etc.
