Ravencoin Foundation Update - 2021-05-02
Posted on April 16th, 2021
Ravencoin and NFTs
Ravencoin and NFTs are like peanut butter and jelly. They just go together. We just called them Unique Assets, because the NFT term wasn't around when we built support into Ravencoin. NFT info in IPFS? Yep, a perfect fit. Want to learn more about NFTs on Ravencoin, there's a class by Stibits in Ravencoin Campus tomorrow. See the master calendar: https://email@example.com
Ravencoin and Virtual Reality (VR)
RVN is the perfect peer-to-peer money for virtual reality. Why? Because it is easy to get (tZero, Binance, Binance US, Bittrex, Sequoir, Guardarian, etc). It is easy to hold in wallets like Exodus, Trust Wallet, Stibits. It is quick, easy, and cheap to send any amount of RVN. I'm working with Virbela now to add Ravencoin addresses to user profiles. This would allow a right-click and Pay/Tip to pop up a Ravencoin address QR code. Easy, and simple.
Ravencoin and Coinbase?
This seems like a no-brainer to me. Ravencoin was created and launched without ever selling any RVN. All RVN is mined. The application has been submitted. Coinbase requires Rosetta-API to abstract the differences between different blockchain projects, so we've launched a project to get it working. If you know Go, this is your chance to contribute to the project. https://github.com/ben-abraham/rosetta-ravencoin
New Monthly Ravencoin Foundation Meeting
The first Ravencoin Foundation meeting was very well attended and held on Discord (audio). This meeting clarified the role that the Ravencoin foundation plays. As it says on the website, the Ravencoin Foundation isn't Ravencoin. It exists to help the Ravencoin ecosystem. It was collectively decided to hold the meeting monthly on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 3pm MT (5pm ET). Anyone is welcome to join, and ask questions. This time was chosen to balance between the needs of the US, Europe, and Asia which are all on very different time zones.

Want more info on a Ravencoin Asset Script?
A Special Interest Group (SIG) is a self-assembled group that is working on their own aspects of Ravencoin, including improvements to core, an Electrum wallet for assets, Rosetta-API, and more. Each SIG will have their own meetings, repos, rules, etc. This model will let Ravencoin and its ecosystem grow more quickly, more organically, and more decentralized.
Electrum for Ravencoin (SIG)
A new project has begun for Electrum for RVN with assets, and hardware wallet support.

It's open 24x7, and the Expo Hall is starting to fill up with projects built on Ravencoin. Don't worry, it is free to explore. https://download.ravencoincampus.org
