What is Ren Protocol (REN)?

Ren or REN (REN/USDT – Trade it here) is a protocol that supports digital assets transfer among different blockchains and creates Ethereum-based tokens. The Ren Virtual Machine (RenVM) powers the protocol. The RenVM is supported by a decentralized network called “Darknodes”. To earn fees from processes, these machines provide the virtual machine with computational power and storage space, facilitating transactions across blockchains. This article will explain more about the features of this protocol plus a step-by-step REN buying instruction.

Core Features of Ren Protocol

  • DarkNodes. Its mission is to maintain the RenVM. Anyone can operate a DarkNode as long as they store a sufficient quantity of REN tokens in smart contracts. By providing the network with bandwidth, processing power, and storage space, DarkNodes support the RenVM and enable users to transfer cryptocurrency assets between blockchains.
  • RenBridges. In terms of the swapping process, RenVM accepts tokens from one blockchain and generates new tokens on another through RenBridge to exchange assets between blockchains. For instance, a user send BTC to the RenVM, and the RenVM will issue “renBTC”, a new Ethereum-based currency that reflects the original Bitcoins (1:1 value). Whenever the user would like to get their BTC back, the transaction can bee undone since the RenVM stores the initial funds.
