Argentum (ARG)

Features

Argentum uses six cryptographic algorithms;
Scrypt with AUXPOW support (Merged Mining)
SHA256D with AUXPOW support (Merged Mining)
Lyra2REv2 (GPU)
Myriad-Groestl (GPU/ASIC)
Argon2d (CPU)
Yescrypt (CPU/GPU)
Max block size 10mb
3 ARG per block
Production: Blocks are discovered every 45 seconds and transactions are fully confirmed every 4.5 minutes. 64 Million total Argentums will be mined. Once this limit is reached, it is increased by 1.1% annually, the rate of human population growth.
Security: Mined blocks mature after 100 confirmations

Argentum was created mid 2013 with the following criteria:

Argentum is fast, unique, and secure. We have learned from many of the past crypto-currencies and created one that can rival any. Argentum brings innovation and experimentation by combining interesting aspects of other crypto-currencies and adding unique features.
Argentum is designed to gain value over time and to be a rare commodity that is easily and quickly transferable. The innovation doesn’t end there, Argentum is the first crypto-currency to increase transaction processing capabilities over those of bitcoin. With the Bank of Argentum, the ARG/DGC exchange, and other commodity related services on the way, there is a bright future for this coin.
Argentum is secure, rare, and unique. The combination of all its characteristics provide a:
Longterm stable investment
Growth potential based on services
Diversification into less risky crypto-currency
Secure quasi-instantaneous transaction processing

What is Argentum?

Argentum is an experimental digital currency that enables instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. Argentum uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority: managing transactions and issuing money are carried out collectively by the network. Argentum is the name of open source software which enables the use of this currency.

License

Argentum is a fork of Bitcoin Core and inherits the terms of the MIT license. See COPYING for more information or see https://opensource.org/licenses/MIT.

Development Process

The master branch is occasionally built and tested, but is not guaranteed to be completely stable. Tags are created regularly to indicate new official, stable release versions of Argentum.

The contribution workflow is described in CONTRIBUTING.md.

Building

See files in the doc directory for generic build instructions for Windows, OSX and Unix.
