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.
