“Ask me for anything but time!”
There has been a fair amount of quiet from the Raptoreum team on exactly what has been going on with the different development streams. This has been due to the team discovering several bugs in our codebase which are currently in the process of being upstreamed.
I would like to lift the skirt just a little bit, for a flash of a nice pink ankle, of what has been going on in other areas of development.
Yeah I’m good, feels like my skull’s on fire, but I’m good.
July has been busy and there has been a lot going on, here is the lowdown!

Counterfeiting and fake products in various forms are becoming a more and more commonplace issue in the 21st century. In many cases, regular consumers are unable to tell the difference between a real product or a knock off from elsewhere.
I have touched briefly on this issue before in our Medium article on gem certification. Obviously, solutions suited to guaranteeing the authenticity of gemstones are a somewhat expensive proposition for more mass-produced items such as branded clothes, bags etc.

Have had a few people asking about the lottery so figured I would whip up this quick guide. The Raptoreum Lotto Pick 4 contest is a way for testnet contributors to earn real RTM before mainnet launch. You are not sent any RTM right now as there is none. Instead you are issued an IOU asset on the Ravencoin blockchain that is an official IOU saying we owe you X amount of RTM. These coins to be paid out within two weeks of mainnet launch.
Life is a grindstone. Whether it grinds us down or polishes us up depends on us.
The last few weeks have been pretty quiet but things have been busy behind the scenes as usual, we have had our noses to the grindstone!
We get a lot of questions on what makes us different from Ethereum and Ravencoin as we are a code fork of Ravencoin and will be adding smart contracts. First, I will list the differences between Raptoreum and Ravencoin both technology wise and for the overall project.
Note: This is meant to be a quick, simple, easy to digest comparison. Going in depth is beyond the scope of a single article. If you want more in depth details on Raptoreum and what it can do and offer please check the following;

The weekly update has been MIA for a bit, mainly do to me being busy, sidetracked, etc. DuckAvenger pitched in and gave me a little kick, and here we are. Thanks buddy!

Running a small business frequently feels like a constant uphill struggle. This is something we at the Raptoreum project understand and can relate to, seeing as our entire core team is made up of current or former small business owners.
There are tools that level the playing field to some extent, social network engineering, viral marketing etc.
Very few tools allow small businesses to provide their customers with say full product traceability or product stories that will help in social network engineering and the viral marketing of…
We welcome everybody to help us in testing Raptoreum and our new algorithm GhostRider. The more people who actively test the wallet and mining the stronger Raptoreum becomes. Helping with testing is very easy and much appreciated! At this time only CPU mining is available, but a GPU miner is in the works and I will update this once it is available.
Actively mining gives you a chance to win real RTM to be paid out shortly after mainnet launch, an excellent way to earn yourself an early bag of RTM! (more coming on this shortly)
