Is the SmartChain Open Source?
No, for now it is a closed source project. Perhaps sometime in the future, the source will be published, but there are no current plans to release the source.
What platforms are supported?
The Radium Coin wallet is supported for Windows, Linux, and Mac.
The Radium SmartChain is supported for Windows. A version compatible with Mono is being planned, but is not currently a priority.
When will Radium be added to XYZ Exchange?
Nearly every respectable exchange does not comment on new coin additions. The development team does not know in advance of any exchange additions.
Is Radium Proof of Stake?
Can Radium run on a Raspberry Pi?
Radium is an open source Proof Of Stake coin, and should compile and run on a Raspberry Pi.
Was there a Premine/Instamine for the Radium Coin?
No. The coin was launched in May 2015. There was an approximately 2 week Scrypt Proof of Work period, followed by decreasing PoS rewards. The PoS reward has recently declined to 0.75 coins per block plus Spread Fees.
Will it become too expensive to use the Radium SmartChain if the price of Radium goes up?
No. If/When this becomes an issue, there is code in place to adjust the cost per operation, if need be.
Do you use OP_RETURN to encode the data?
No. The current protocol encodes the data into fake public keys.
Is there a list of fixed seeds or DNS seeds for the Radium wallet?
Yes! we have both some fixed nodes (Radium nodes that are usually on and available to connect to) and some DNS seeds (nameservers that provide a dynamic list of known nodes)
