What is Lynx?

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.

What is the goal of Lynx?

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.

Why did you name it Lynx?

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.

Is Lynx an ICO?

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.

How does the hard fork affect users?

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.

What is the Max supply?

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.
