Confidently Transact with the Highest Degree of Anonymity
Ryo was conceived with the highest levels of privacy in mind. From day one, Ring Confidential Transactions (RingCT) with minimum ringsize (mixin) of 12 were implemented to conceal every transaction. Ryo Blockchain analysis is impractical. Have piece of mind knowing that what you choose to do with your money is your business, not anyone else's.
As privacy is the core foundation of Ryo, sending and receiving addresses are encrypted and transaction amounts are obfuscated by default. Disposable ghost addresses conceal your real Ryo address from senders, allowing for truly anonymous and untraceable transactions.
Ryo adds privacy to the core of Satoshi's vision of a decentralized, trustless cryptocurrency. Many other cryptocurrencies fell prey to centralization caused by ASICS. Ryo will - as it has in the past - not allow this type of centralization to occur on its network through continued development of Ryo and its Cryptonight-Heavy algorithm.
Ryo is truly fungible because of its built-in privacy features. Just like cash, nobody knows who had possesion of any particluar coin before them. Even better than cash, nobody knows the identity of who they're sending their coins to. It is extremely unlikely that Ryo will ever be blacklisted by any third party due to any association in prior transactions.
Ryo allows you to use a new ghost address for every transaction you receive. Never receive coins with the same address twice, even further reducing the astronomically tiny chance of you and your transactions to be traced.

Whitepaper & Academic Study
Ryo, as a fork from Monero which itself was initially based on the CryptoNote protocol, inherits all whitepapers and academic studies from CryptoNote and Monero Research Lab. Additionally, Ryo has pioneered technologies such as Cryptonight-Heavy, which have been used by numerous other Monero forks.
- Cryptonote Heavy Design
- The CryptoNote Whitepaper
- Initial Review of the CryptoNote Whitepaper
- MRL-0001: A Note on Chain Reactions in Traceability in CryptoNote 2.0
- MRL-0002: Counterfeiting via Merkle Tree Exploits within Virtual Currencies Employing the CryptoNote Protocol
- MRL-0003: Monero is Not That Mysterious
- MRL-0004: Improving Obfuscation in the CryptoNote Protocol
- MRL-0005: Ring Signature Confidential Transactions
Hardfork release to implement new difficulty adjustment algorithm to deal with flash-hashrate surges.
Sumokoin GUI wallet released which will end up being forked by many other cryptonote-based coins.
Sumokoin Easy Miner
Intuitive, easy-to-use GUI miner for Sumokoin and many other cryptonote-based coins
Subaddresses support to improve coin privacy, also known as "Ghost" addresses.
This is a roadmap suggested by our developers but can be changed to reflect new project targets and the developer's vision. Implementation timelines are not fixed and subjected to actual development resources.

Credit is due to the Monero Project. Without it Ryo would not be possible. Monero is a great project, but the Ryo Team believes we can create a more secure cryptocurrency by enabling higher mixins from the start and implementing features such as bulletproofs at a much earlier block height than our predecessor.
Credit is also due to Nicolas van Saberhagen and the CryptoNote team for their original work on the cryptonote whitepaper, as well as the Bytecoin project for creating the first CryptoNote-based coin.
Ryo is primarily a technology focused project, thus we do not spend large amounts of funds for marketing purposes. The founders believe that users looking for a higher level of privacy will seek out and find us. We encourage the community to speak about Ryo in their community.
