A new POW algorithm
NERVA utilizes the brand new and exclusive Cryptonight Adaptive algorithm (v3). This makes NERVA the only solo CPU mined cryptonight coin in circulation.
NERVA believes facing the issues in crypto are far more important than the personal wealth of individuals. There was no ICO, just a fair launch for those who want to help faced those issues and provide a brighter future for crypto
No need to run separate GPU mining rigs or other specialized hardware. Mine coins on your current computer, or even that old laptop in the garage.
1 minute block times with low confirmation count means your funds are at their destination sooner. Combine with that low fees and a stable blockchain and you can send and recieve NERVA quickly and cost effectively.
Based on the Monero and Masari projects, NERVA combines cryptonote's first class privacy and fungability with solo CPU mining. You never have to share your address to participate with NERVA.
Solo CPU mining means everyone with a computer has a chance to mine blocks. No need for expensive mining equipment or software that might be covertly mining to someone elses account. You help secure the network and get the entire reward if you find a block.
1 Crypto for everyone
Crypto should be for everyone, not just those who can afford the hardware to mine it. NERVA allows you to mine on the computer you're using to read this website, or even dust off that old laptop in the garage. Because if crypto is going to be our future, then we all need to be able to be a part of it. Read More
2 On the cutting edge
NERVA is widely known as an experimental coin. But that's just cause we're doing things a bit differently. With a custom Proof of Work algorithm, the focus on solo CPU mining and the accelerated emission curve, NERVA is changing the way people think about cryptocurrencies and how they are mined and traded.

3 A simple use case
Our use case is simple. To provide a stable blockchain with fast, low fee transfers usable by anyone with a straightforward, no nonsense interface. To provide the tools and resources to assist developers to integrate NERVA into their systems and use NERVA as an alternate payment method.
Nerva is super easy to mine. No extra software or looking up pools. Just download the software and go

What's with the name?
NERVA stands for Nuclear Engine for Rocket Vehicle Application. It was a part of a wider research project conducted by NASA in the 1950's and 60's to produce a nuclear powered rocket engine to power manned missions beyond the moon. NERVA never flew. Those vaguely familiar with crypto will see the irony in this.
Is there a pre-mine?
Yes. 180,000 coins were pre-mined for this project. This equates to approximately 0.97% of the total supply. This is to finance the infrastructure to run the network for the years to come.
What's the max supply?
There will be around 18.5 million coins issued before "tail emission" occurs, which is a small 1% annual inflation to keep miners incentivized, replace lost coins and provide future liquidity.
What pools are out there?
Short answer, None. NERVA is intended to be a solo mined, with CPU only.
What about GPU mining?
Please read our statement aboveCryptoNote and RingCT protocols. A whitepaper regarding the Cryptonight Adaptive algorithm is in the works and will be published in due course.
