Bitcoin’s business rules and energy requirements create an over-reliance on fossil fuels; Lynx does the opposite and strives to solve this problem. For cryptocurrency to be considered a secure platform for exchange in today’s global marketplace, it must be created with global sustainability in mind.
Globally Sustainable Network
Unlike Bitcoin, the Lynx code discourages high-volume mining rigs because the code purposefully lacks incentives to mine it for profit. As a result, the entire Lynx network is designed to operate on a collaboration of low power devices that anyone can run, resulting in a collective global mining cost of only dollars a day.
December 24th, 2013: the original developers released Kittehcoin (MEOW). It was initially met with enthusiasm in the crypto community, but because of a design flaw in the code and a lack of continual development and deliverable solutions, the project remained dormant for years.
December 24th, 2017: the new developers release Lynx — the upgrade and evolution of Kittehcoin. They successfully (hard) forked Litecoin and ported the Kittehcoin blockchain history to it. Now, Lynx has all the benefits of Litecoin with the full transaction history of Kittehcoin. This fixes the design flaw, benefits the existing Kittehcoin holders, and implements all of the security features of Litecoin.

Easy to Use
1. Ecofriendly mining
Unlike other coins, Lynx discourages mining for profit. The energy costs are too high and it creates an over-reliance on fossil fuels. Lynx is committed to creating global solutions and maintaining a small carbon footprint. Instead of encouraging high-volume mining rigs, our easy-to-use tools support a low-cost, low-impact, broad miner base.
2. EASY TO USE TOOLS
Decentralized mining coupled with our embedded, strategic business rules are designed to discourage high volatility and stabilize the market price. In lieu of high-volume mining, our tools allow users to create and maintain Lynx nodes that confirm transactions with a built-in lightweight miner. See the “downloads” page for more information.
3. DESKTOP WALLET
The updated desktop wallet for Windows, Mac, and Linux allows users to import their old Kittehcoin holdings. It also allows them to send and receive Lynx. See the “downloads” page for more information.
Lynx is a downstream of Litecoin which means that, like Litecoin, we’ll have low transaction costs and fast transaction speeds. Our downstream position also ensures that Lynx contains the most up-to-date security features of Litecoin. Why did we choose Litecoin? Their team is small and nimble like us, and they implement technological improvements quickly and with little drama or fan-fare. (Unlike other coins and teams which we will not name. Cough cough.)
5. APP INTEGRATION
To get ahead in today’s global market, companies need cryptocurrency integration in their software applications and devices. Seamless integration enhances the customer experience and gives companies a competitive, global advantage. To assist with this, we provide concierge-level customer service for our business clients and integrated applications.
6. MOBILE WALLET
Over the next year, we’ll release additional information about our interactive mobile wallet. Our goal is to innovate traditional wallet designs to put your funds at your fingertips, where you need it, and when you need it. We’ve partnered with global experts to ensure our product is inclusive and accessible for diverse users.
