Thanks, that's what I wanted to know Smiley. I was just worried because the Bitcoin Cash EDA implementation allowed it to be gamed by miners which made the block times fly all over the place.

New release 0.12.0.0 (Sophia)

This is a mandatory software upgrade due to the rebase of the Aeon codebase to the latest master branch of Monero. More info in the release notes at the link below.

*** The mainnet fork date is scheduled on June 3st, 2018 (height 962600) ***

CLI: https://github.com/aeonix/aeon/releases/tag/v0.12.0.0
GUI: https://github.com/aeonix/aeon-gui/releases/tag/v0.12.0.0-aeon

Note: Since the aeon repo has been completely replaced (the old one is no archived as aeon-legacy), if you are using git, you should do a new clone, not pull.

AEON - Mobile-friendly private digital currency

A lightweight CryptoNote digital currency

Secure

Each transaction is secured with robust cryptography and distributed through a global peer-to-peer consensus network.

Private

By default, AEON utilizes a cryptographic system to transfer funds without the identifying information of each user becoming visible on the blockchain.

Untraceable

AEON uses ring signatures to make transactions untraceable, meaning it is very difficult for blockchain analysis to determine if funds have been spent.

How is AEON different from Monero?

Compared to our CryptoNote big brother, here are AEON's main advantages:

  • 1

    Mobile-friendly

    1 MB scratchpad allows AEON to run efficiently on mobile devices alongside regular laptops and desktops.

  • 2

    Different proof-of-work

    AEON's lightweight PoW (CryptoNote-Lite) allows for faster verification of the blockchain.

  • 3

    Blockchain pruning for scalability

    Pruning allows the blockchain to stay small and not outgrow devices with limited storage. This feature also improves anonymity by reducing age-based attacks.

  • 4

    Fast syncing

    Compared to Bitcoin variants, CryptoNote coins typically have higher verification, leading to more orphaned blocks. AEON helps this issue by using a 4-minute blocktime, reducing sync by a factor of four. Coupled with our lighter PoW, sync times on lower end devices can be improved by 10x or more.

  • 5

    Optional lightweight transfers

    As a CryptoNote coin, payments are still anonymous by default. But unlike Monero, AEON also allows for traceable transfers. These are a faster lower-fee option for non-sensitive payments, like transferring to/from exchanges.

Overall, AEON seeks to be a lightweight-Monero, similar to how Litecoin seeks to be a lightweight-Bitcoin. While still drawing from the technical advantages of Monero and CryptoNote, AEON has distinct development goals and an independent community that enable it to thrive as its own currency.
