Intro

The LivenCoin (LVN) Initial Coin Offering (ICO) is moving along. Right now, Liven is tidying up shop, closing out final private-sale requests and preparing for the public-sale of LVN tokens.

This means opening up contributions to a wider global audience, which we’re pretty excited about and thoroughly preparing for.

Whilst this is happening, Liven’s network continues to grow, new team members are brought in, and the national Liven team meet at the new Melbourne office to undergo a fast-paced organisational structure audit - headed by the new Chief of Product, Shahrooz Chowdhury.

LivenCoin (LVN) live Reward Protocol MVP is built on in-house Ethereum node

This month, Liven built their own in-house Ethereum node and have a live version of the Reward Protocol on an Ethereum test-net.

The Reward Protocol is LivenCoin’s unique token economic model designed by CSO Dr. David Ballerini. This protocol manages the inflow and outflow of LVN rewards given per transaction in the network, and determines the value of LVN tokens relevant to the network’s activity.

The Reward Protocol is detailed in section 5 of the Liven Whitepaper. Soon, we will be releasing a series of content explaining the Reward Protocol in plain old English.

Thanks for reading! If you have any questions or want to open up a dialogue about the project our social channels below and conversation can be had in our Telegram group.
