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.
UPDATE 3/9/18: LYNX is available on Cryptopia.
UPDATE 1/28/18: Lynx (LYNX) was supposed to be listed on Cryptopia by January 1, 2018 but (after we submitted our registration and made the announcement about our upcoming listing), they announced they were “permanently closing the LTC basemarkets on cryptopia.co.nz… Cryptopia will be standing up new sister sites such as ltc.cryptopia.co.nz to handle base markets dedicated to LTC on their own trade engine and database to allow them to continue to trade, and allowing cryptopia.co.nz to resume registrations.” That’s why LYNX isn’t available on that exchange… yet. As far as we know (based on our last correspondence with them), once the new sister site is up and running, Cryptopia will swap any MEOW balances left on the exchange for 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.
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.

Currently the Lynx network occupies port 22566.
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.
