Argentum

A Modern Digital Currency Reborn

New Website, a work in progress.


Argentum [ARG]

Argentum is the Latin name for the element silver. It is the perfect name to represent this currency and the potential it has with a dedicated development team. Argentum is a fast, unique, anonymous and secure way to make transactions of any size at any time. We didn't settle for making just another digital currency; instead, we decided to push the limits of what is technologically possible.


Technical

General

Scrypt
Optimized client

Blocks

Block size increased to 10mb
Signature operations per block maximum increased to 100k
32 Second block time

The first two features are on the bitcoin hardfork wishlist. We wanted to create the first cryptographic currency with almost unlimited scalability. The signature operations per block were not increased as much as block size because it is unnecessary and theoretically unreachable as is.

Difficulty

Dark Gravity Wave adjustment.

Currency Creation

64 million total ARG. Once this limit is reached, it is increased by 1.1% annually, the rate of human population growth.

Launch

Historically launched by AlphaC on 11 June 2013 and Continued by Baritus. There seems indication form the original BitCoinTalk threads that there may have been a premin of 200k ARG.

Relaunch

Relaunched on 10 April 2016 after the the fall of Cryptsy.

Security

Mined blocks mature after 30 confirms: Argentum is a fast currency but it does not compromise the safety of the blockchain in the process.
