The Crypto Trinity

Bitcoin Rhodium was introduced to a market environment that lacked the appeal for investors looking for a long-term investment in crypto securities. Ever since Bitcoin Rhodium has met every objective to effectively fulfil this role, one that no single cryptocurrency has managed to subsume so far.

Bitcoin Rhodium’s inherent qualities naturally discern it from the plethora of altcoins available on the market that lack any viable use case. But more importantly, they are the bases to a natural convergence with Bitcoin and Litecoin. The three coins (XRC, BTC, LTC) form an efficient ecosystem that can facilitate users/investors with different needs and preferences.

Where LTC has traditionally provided its users with primarily transactional properties and BTC still fails to find its appeal for traditional investors, Bitcoin Rhodium emerges as the natural complement to meet the demand for long-term security investments, investment diversification, a coin that is tightly held and transparent towards its users. For these reasons Bitcoin Rhodium represents the final piece of the puzzle, the Crypto Trinity, whose efficient co-existence satisfies the complete spectrum of investors and their diverse needs.

P2P Bitcoin Rhodium-METALS Market

In order to stimulate investment, strengthen Bitcoin Rhodium’s use case and promote crypto acceptability we are working on an application that will bridge the gap between crypto and traditional investments. It will facilitate P2P exchange among XRC, BTC, LTC and precious metal investors through decentralized and efficient matching of supply and demand with no intermediaries.

Strong Hands programme - Hold & Get Rewarded

The Bitcoin Rhodium Strong Hands programme is an innovative use case feature, which rewards proactive holders and stimulates new investment. Every 3 months you can earn a piece of 8036 XRC distributed through rewards for every programme cycle.

How to participate

All Bitcoin Rhodium holders can participate and their wallet addresses will be included automatically. Thus, no specific actions need to be taken by the users to enroll in the programme cycles. An automatic snapshot of the individual balances will take place at the beginning and the end of every 3-month cycle (note that the closing snapshot for one cycle is also the opening snapshot for another cycle). Rewards will be then automatically transferred to the addresses that managed to avoid any negative balance movement.

Who is eligible

Every 3 months, rewards are disbursed among the addresses, which successfully complete the 3-month cycle without any negative movement (any outgoing transfer from the respective address automatically disqualifies its for the reward). For a given period, only addresses with no outgoing transactions will be rewarded. The reward payment will be based on the address’s initial balance for the period, regardless of wether any additional XRC were added to it. The XRC added to it, if any, does count for the following period’s initial value. Read the examples below.

Timing

Over the span of 8 years rewards will be disbursed every 3 months (32 Strong Hands cycles in total) within a window of 2 weeks after the end of each cycle. The first cycle #1 was launched by an automatic snapshot on 01/01/2019 (January 1, 2019) and ended on 04/01/2019 (April 1, 2019). The following cycle is scheduled for the period between 04/01/2019 (April 1, 2019) and 07/01/2019 (July 1, 2019).

Next snapshot (XRC balance qualified for rewards) : 07/07/2019 (July 7, 2019)

Special Grace Period will be granted for moving funds to hardware wallets: 07/01/2019 (July 1, 2019) - 07/07/2019 (July 7, 2019)

Funding

The rewards are covered from the 257,143 XRC (out of 840,000 XRC) unclaimed during the two airdrops. The first reward period after 01/01/2019 (January 1, 2019) will distribute 8036 XRC. The 210,000 pre-mined XRC (dedicated to marketing and project development) is excluded from the programme and hence will not be subject to any of the programme rewards.

Examples

A: 1/1: 100 XRC, 4/1: 100 XRC without negative movements. Rewarded on 100 XRC
B: 1/1: 100 XRC, 4/1: 120 XRC without negative movement (receive 20 during period): Rewarded on 100 XRC
C: 1/1: 100 XRC, 4/1: 150 XRC transfered out 20 (left empty), transfered in 30 during quarter” No reward
D: 1/1: 0 XRC, 4/1: 100 XRC transfered in 100 XRC: No reward
E: 1/1: 100 XRC, 4/1 100 XRC transfered out 20 on 2/5 and transfered in 100 on 2/10: No reward
An address with zero balance on 1/1 gets no reward no matter what
