In this video, Ben and Mark (@BitSavage) discuss Hybrid Proof of Work. Using Bingo as the metaphor, Ben explains how Lynx business rules discourage mining for profit. HPoW went live on the Lynx mainnet on Feb 17th 2019.
Our first interview with Mark Savage. We discuss Lynx and disuss it’s eco-friendly characteristics.
By default the QT wallet might not connect to the seed nodes properly on first try and you will find your wallet failing to sync it’s block chain with the network. It will appear to be stuck. Here is the fix. read more…
Yes! We understand that not all implementations of Lynx will want the miner to run. Even though it only uses 1% of the CPU, it still may pose a security risk or use more precious server resources than planned. read more…
Since you already know how to set up wifi access on LynxCI, wouldn’t it be helpful to allow your Raspberry Pi running LynxCI to connect to more then one SSID in the event you move it around? This video shows you how. read more…
The following video walks you through the steps to gain access to the debug log and view it stream onto your screen. The the sake of quick access, the Lynx debug log is always located with /root/.lynx/debug.log in LynxCI. read more…
It sure is helpful to know how to edit LynxCI in the event you have some ideas to change settings or want to play. This video shows you how firewall settings are managed on LynxCI and how to change them.
By default, LynxCI requires a physical ethernet connection for network access, but you can configure it work over wifi. Here is how!
It sure is helpful to see what kind of mining activity your LynxCI node is generating. Remember, Lynx mining isn’t profitable, so we aren’t checking to figure out ways to make money with mining Lynx, instead we are verifying that LynxCI is running well. read more…
This video teaches you how to use sudo and su to gain access to the root account on LynxCI.
This video will show you how to do it and then explain why you shouldn’t. read more…
Yes, it is. The following video will show you where the power saving HDMI code is implemented in LynxCI and how to disable it. read more…
For many already comfortable with Linux, this video may seem mundane, but let’s help those who don’t already know. read more…
Lynx cryptocurrency was designed with techies (high-end developers and programming experts) and non-techies in mind. In fact, we know there are more non-techies in the world than technical experts (!), and we wanted to provide them with an opportunity to get involved in Lynx behind-the-scenes. read more…
UPDATE 3/28/18: LYNX is available on Cryptopia.
Lynx is a secure cryptocurrency with fast transaction speeds and low-transaction fees. It’s also eco-friendly & easy-to-use. In 2017, our team upgraded and rebranded an existing coin (MEOW) as Lynx. How? We successfully forked Litecoin and ported the Kittehcoin blockchain history to it. This gives Lynx all the benefits of Litecoin with the full transaction history of Kittehcoin. These upgrades fixed the flaws in the original coin and revived its community of users. It’s cryptocurrency from the past; redesigned for the future.
Our primary goal for Lynx is application integration. To get ahead today, companies need cryptocurrency integration in their software applications and devices. Seamless integration enhances the customer experience and gives companies a competitive, global advantage. (It also stabilizes the currency’s price.) Lynx is a smart choice for application integration because it has low transaction fees and fast confirmation times and that’s critical for today’s fin-tech requirements.
We are phasing out our Telegram channel for Discord. Please join us on Discord.
Lynx is a downstream of Litecoin and an upgrade to Kittehcoin. We chose the name Lynx because Kittehcoin has a loyal fan base and we wanted to embrace that community. It’s also our way of paying homage to the text-only web browser (Lynx) we used back in college in 1994.
Lynx is NOT an ICO. Too many of them are “pump & dump” scams which is why the market for them is decreasing. They’re unreliable.
According to a recent article in Wired magazine;, “Bitcoin emits the equivalent of 17.7 million tons of carbon dioxide every year.” That’s a big problem! At Lynx, we believe that for cryptocurrency to be considered a secure, financial solution for today’s global marketplace, it must be created with global sustainability in mind. read more…
The Lynx wallets will be available by January 1st, 2018 here for MacOS, Windows, and Ubuntu.
MEOW forks on 12/24/17 and becomes Lynx. At the end of 12/24/17, Cryptopia will swap any MEOW balances left on the exchange for LYNX. When they pause the markets/wallets, they’ll leave a note to minimize any confusion. LYNX will be available on Cryptopia by January 1st. At that time, your old MEOW coins will become LYNX.
If your network connection speed is medium to fast, the Lynx wallet syncs quickly. But, if your connection is slower and you want to try and speed things up:
1. Use our bootstrap file. read more…
The max supply is 92 billion. Why 92 billion? It came down to the variable types in C++. The integer data type in C++ that stores that value has a limit of around ~92 billion, so we chose 92 billion. If we went over that limit, it would force us to refactor a lot of code and delay Lynx’s release. We wanted to remove that additional complexity. With Lynx’s low block reward, we have about ~24 years of life left on the coin which allows for (and encourages) long term stability.

Lynx (like Litecoin), uses Scrypt for its proof-of-work algorithm.
You can ignore it. This warning is an artifact of out of date code in the Kittehcoin wallet. The new Lynx wallet available here has this warning removed. We strongly recommend you no longer use the older Kittehcoin wallet as transactions may not get confirmed properly.
