Ravencoin (RVN) Will Be Moving From X16R to X16RV2 Algorithm on Tuesday Oct 01 2019 16:00:00 UTC

The Ravencoin Dev team has now confirmed the upcoming algorithm changes to the new X16Rv2 algorithm planned to happen on Tuesday October 1st 2019 at 16:00:00 UTC. The new X16Rv2 will have the algorithm Tiger into three separate parts of the current X16R algo with the Tiger hash performed before the algorithms Luffa512, Keccak512, and SHA512. A new build should be made available this week or at the beginning of the next (version 2.5.0) that will have the algorithm switch in it. The new build will also be fixing some bugs, and adding some improvements into the Ravencoin Core Client. It is recommended that all users/nodes update to 2.5.0 as soon as it becomes available even though there is more than a month before the algorithm switch. Meanwhile GPU miners interested in continuing to mine RVN with the new X16Rv2 algorithm should monitor heir favorite mining software as support for the new algo is being announced in upcoming updates…
