Technology Deep Dive: Inside Verus

We are an open-source platform available to anyone. We supply tools for individuals and organizations to build equitable frameworks for social and economic change.

The initial Verus release was pre-announced on Bitcointalk with zero premine, and team members mined and staked along with everyone else to generate coins. The Verus developers donated their early mining and staking proceeds to a community foundation, which has also been supported with other community donations in order to support the ongoing growth and project development by core developers and the community for years to come.
