Lakran

Lakran is a decentralized blockchain application based on the CryptoNight algorithm

 Lakran is an open-source, 100% community-sponsored cryptocurrency project. It is based on the CryptoNote protocol and uses the CryptoNight-Lite algorithm, and features anonymity, data protection , and untraceable payments using ring signatures . Lakran also offers unlinkable transactions with random data by the sender, making it blockchain analysis resistant . 



Lakran is also ASIC-resistant, meaning that it can only be mined by CPUs and GPUs.

Features

Blockchain algorithm: POW

PoW algorithm: CryptoNight-Lite

Max supply: ~18.4 million

Block reward: Smoothly varying using the formula (M−A) / (218) / (1012) where M = 264 −1 and A = supply mined to date.

Block time: 120 seconds

Difficulty: Retargets at every block



Lakran prunes to allow the blockchain to stay small and not outgrow devices with limited storage. This also improves anonymity by reducing age-based attacks.

Syncing

Lakran uses a 4-minute blocktime. Coupled with a lighter PoW, sync times on lower end devices can be improved.

Transfers

Lakran has the option for traceable transfers, similarly to Zcash. These are a faster lower-fee option for non-sensitive payments, like transferring to/from exchanges.

Adaptive difficulty

Lakran readjusts the difficulty with every block to react to hashrate changes. In addition, Lakran's emission curve is smooth which prevents mining reward drops.

Hash code optimization

The CryptoNight-Lite algorithm uses half as much memory and fewer hash rounds than CryptoNight, making it more efficient.

Adaptable restrictions

The number of blocks in the blockchain chain, the complexity of mining, the maximum number of coins issued depend on the needs of the system and its users. These variables are automatically regulated by specially created algorithms, not developers.

Double Spend Protection

In a system protected by CryptoNote algorithms, each transaction is accompanied by a unique key. And it's impossible to use the same key twice. This protects against dishonest users or random system errors. The identity of the user who wanted to spend "double waste" is not disclosed, but the transfer is canceled.
