Cryptocurrencies are complicated, and it’s NavCoin’s mission to change that. As a community we are striving to make NavCoin the most usable cryptocurrency on the planet.
NavCoin’s project roadmap contintues that journey. Together we are laying the foundation for NavCoin to be an industry-leading cryptocurrency, by building better money.
Using a combination of lightning network transactions and exchange integrations, NavChange is a Valence powered application which facilitates instant exchange between NAV and other currencies.
A payment gateway powered by Valence, which enables users to spend NAV at any business which accepts any currency supported by NavChange.
Allowing for NAV, which are stored offline, to sign staking inputs will greatly increase the security of funds used for staking.

Valence is a Blockchain Application Platform proposed by the NavCoin Core Team which is planned to run parallel to NavCoin. It allows developers to easily integrate the best parts of blockchain into their apps and websites.
You shouldn’t need to have a PhD in Economics and Math just to deploy blockchain applications.
Forming the backbone of the network, Valence Masternodes ensure reliable, fast, and scalable infrastructure to route private application data and seed selective blockchains.
Encrypted Communication Protocol
Valence offers a range of public, private and permissioned blockchain storage options. Valence’s ECP combined with the Masternode Network provides its highest level of privacy for apps and users.
App Store & Console
The decentralised and autonomous registration of Valence applications will take place on the blockchain and be accessible through the Valence App Store.
This smart contract-driven crowdfunding platform is designed to protect the funders of Valence Applications by allocating governance of raised funds to the parties who put the funds forward.
These features are just the beginning of the the Valence Roadmap. NavCore will be adding all the major Valence projects to this list soon.
