Lynx is an eco-friendly cryptocurrency that discourages mining for profit and runs on Raspberry Pi.
Lynx offers a solution to the environmentally unsustainable problem of profit-driven mining, because the code purposefully lacks incentives to mine it for profit. In addition, the entire LYNX network is designed to operate on a collaboration of low power devices (like the Raspberry Pi) that result in a global cost of only dollars a day; this includes mining the coin and confirming transactions. The emphasis on low-cost computing creates a decentralized, broad miner base that strengthens the stability of the cryptocurrency. In addition, to reinforce Lynx’s security, the core team is finalizing development on a modification that makes Lynx immune to a 51% attack.
According to Ben Wilson, the lead developer with over twenty-five years of software development experience, “I love solving problems and current research confirms the energy requirement associated with Proof of Work is a problem. I wanted to create a cryptocurrency that moves in the other direction; toward a carbon neutral footprint. We’re not there yet but we’re close. And the best part is that even non-techies can mine Lynx, so it’s environmentally sustainable and it’s inclusive to anyone who wants to support the project.”
Lynx was designed to have minimal environmental impact because it’s committed to creating global solutions and maintaining a small carbon footprint. The goal is to attract a broad range of collaborators who will directly benefit from the equitable and sustainable approach.

In July 2017, our development team began the work of forking the Kittehcoin project and we’re happy to announce that the resulting project is now named “Lynx.” Why did we name it Lynx?read more
Good news! We successfully forked Litecoin and ported the Kittehcoin blockchain history to it. This gives us all the benefits of Litecoin with the full transaction history of Kittehcoin. So, like we mentioned in a previous post, if you already own Kittehcoin – you automatically own the new, upgraded coin.read more
On a recent Telegram chat, someone criticized the “new” Kittehcoin because the largest current wallets are not (and won’t be) frozen. He/she said: “I won’t invest in this coin if the largest addresses aren’t burned, because it suggests these coins are illegitimate.”*
Below is our response to that criticism.read more
