RChain is a blockchain cooperative with the aim of creating a platform that has an industrial scale
utility. The primary feature of RChain is its Rho Virtual Machine that utilizes Turing-complete,
Byzantine fault tolerance, and replication technologies to power its decentralized applications and
smart contracts. There are various instances of the Rho Virtual Machine, each with its own
blockchain network and smart contracts. This structure is known as a sharded network, meaning
that there are essentially many blockchains running parallel to each other to increase performance
and scalability (since new instances can constantly be created to keep up with network traffic).
RChain (RHOC) Ethereum tokens are required to get access to the RChain platform, and will be
redeemable 1-to-1 with REV coins on the RChain blockchain in the future.
