What are the key advantages of Lucent?
Lucent is a cutting edge cryptocurrency, with key features that are not available in many other cryptocurrencies. Lucent is a hybrid with darksend technology and limitless masternodes.
Is there a public repository of code relating to the Lucent Blockchain?
Yes! We have several projects in our public repo on github: https://github.com/LucentCoin/Lucent
Currently, there is no active restriction by any government that will have an immediate effect on Lucent, especially due to the decentralized nature of the project.
Additionally, Lucent is a coin which is integrated into the blockchain and developed as an open source project. No singular group will be responsible for the use of the app, removing any previously applicable jurisdiction.
What functionality is already implemented into Lucent?
At launch, or shortly thereafter, Lucent coins and masternodes will be available for purchase. Lucent masternodes will be available for a collateral of 16,000 Lucent Coins. Lucent Coin also provides darksend technology that can be used on the tor network for greater privacy options. A masternode is very similar to a bitcoin miner, without the massive environmental costs associated with running physical miners. Instead of requiring computers to solve complex mathematical problems in order to participate in the mining rewards of blockchain technology, a "stake" of coins is put up as collateral for a server to be able to participate on the blockchain. This way, anyone can participate in mining by purchasing a masternode. By activating a masternode, the user is helping to strengthen and further decentralize the network. In exchange for running a masternode, the user is also part of a rewards system and will gain a percentage of the coins mined on their block.
Lucent�s decentralized blockchain provides for a unanimity based advancement of current Masternode technology that is used to secure the network. Familiar frameworks will increase accessibility for developers with little or no blockchain experience. Using obfuscation, anonymous and private transactions can be securely made using coin mixing technology.
Is there a Lucent wallet?
Yes. We have C++ QT, Linux, and Mac wallets all released. You can check out the public repo for our any of our wallets on: https://github.com/LucentCoin/Lucent/releases
When is Lucent going public?
We already have. If you are reading this then you can now join the community on discord (https://discord.gg/dbVuJEE) and follow our Twitter (https://twitter.com/Lucent_Systems) for updates. We have released the wallets and are in the process of creating further framework for the community as we develop.
What is Lucent Blockchain?
The first developer of the coin �Radiant� left their community. One of the co-founders for Lucent was in the Radiant community when this happened. With the help of another Developer, and a friend, the idea of Lucent was formed. Our goal was to help the community try to recover loss and to keep faith in alternative cryptocurrency projects. Coinsmarkets, the exchange that had listed Radiant, then disappeared.
This left all coin holders of Coinsmarkets and Radiant, empty handed and in an unfair position. As we furthered progress of our first Lucent wallet, our developer had never built a wallet or blockchain. Everyone was strapped for time and funding. With some problems in the wallet keeping us from launching, the developer left. When the developer left, a large part of the community left.
After finding another developer and a complete rebrand of Lucent, we are confident of the release and future success of Lucent. As a result of the rebrand and release of Lucent, the remaining core team members, new developer, consultants, and organizations, we are excited to finish the Lucent core promises.
What is Darksend Technology?
Darksend gives you true financial privacy by obscuring the origins of your funds. All the Lucent in your wallet is comprised of different "inputs" which you can think of as separate, discrete (and discreet), coins. Darksend uses an innovative process to mix your coins with the inputs of two other people, without having your coins ever leave your wallet. You retain complete control of your money at all times.
What are the future plans for Lucent?
Our future plans will be better explained with the release of our new roadmap, which is scheduled for May 2019. It will include our plans to establish ourselves as a true cryptocurrency which maintains the privacy of its holders, to be used in everyday transactions. We are working diligently to create the type of commerce that Satoshi would use daily. BTC is a store of value, while Lucent strives to be an everyday use currency. Our chain will be secured from the masternodes, which will then classify Lucent as a true Hybrid.
We recommend you take a look at this alternative cryptocurrency project, with which many of the great people from the original community are still here and part of Lucent today. We will continue to work hard, make progress, and collaborate with brilliant minds for future growth and longevity.
