The Rapture Project was created by a small team that shared a vision — that the blockchain could be utilized for true good in the world. That a system of currency could benefit not only those who use it, but also those in need.
The blockchain has rapidly emerged as one of the most revolutionary technologies, having the potential to change the world of finance and currency as we know it. Some of the greatest strengths of the blockchain are speed, security, transparency, and decentralization.
Rapture aims to bring this powerful technology to the mainstream, and more specifically, to charities, non-profits and humanitarian organizations worldwide.
Digital currency, or specifically cryptographic currency, is similar to traditional fiat currency but it exists purely in a digital form. It’s main advantages are that it allows for instantaneous, extremely low cost transactions. It is also borderless and does not accrue foreign transaction fees. The blockchain is a highly secure digital ledger that contains all transactions and amounts for the entire history of the currency. Crypto-currencies also have inherent features such as a pre-defined rate of production and maximum supply, which helps control inflation and prevents the currency from being generated in vast amounts out of thin air.
Rapture are created using a fixed schedule and rate. All Rapture are generated through a process known as proof-of-work, where powerful computers process complex algorithms in order to “mint” Rapture. The hardware, infrastructure, and energy cost involved in the creation of each Rapture are one component of it’s value. Like growing crops and other commodities, Rapture takes resources to generate. Rapture’s algorithms constantly adjust to the amount of computer processing being used to mint, so doubling the amount of processing power will not create twice the amount of Rapture. Unlike central banks that simply enter digits into a computer to create more currency out of thin air (leading to hyperinflation), this is not possible with Rapture.
Rapture is not intended to be a replacement for traditional fiat currency, but can be embraced as an alternative that doesn’t make big banks richer and doesn’t help fund endless wars. The corruption, greed, and hidden forces that use fiat to further their agendas have no place in Rapture. Digital currency such as Rapture, can be thought of as a complementary currency, or a community currency – of which there are many different kinds in use. Wikipedia has an excellent overview of other complementary currencies.
