ArQmA is a completely new and unique RandomARQ blockchain.

How is ArQmA different?

We have no ICO. There is a premine at 15 % which is not ours but for project purposes: exchanges, promotions, bonus blocks, view key available
Our coin will take all the best features from other coins and add extra improvements to make it the most secure coin possible

Based on Monero / Aeon / Cryptonight we find solutions that can take ArQmA to a higher level . Team that has a passion for Crypto and have worked on projects longer than a few years. Our solutions will be available for free, open source, and can be implemented on any coin.

This is not just some ruin of the mill project. Our project is sponsored direclty from our pockets and take it very serious!

Future Plans
Auto learning algo with the ability to find blocks even if pool is smaller than larger pools.
We are hard at work on including ArQmA in every possible way that will help everyone in day to day life, example: mobile payments, transactions, payments at shops, multi-currency transfers ect…

PoS/PoW masternode in the works!
