Rosecoin [ROC] is an open source, global payment network developed by Rocheston that is fully decentralized without any central authorities. It is a blockchain based рееr-tо-рееr сrурtосurrеnсу аnd open ѕоurсе software project released under MIT lісеnѕеѕ. The Rosecoin Network aims to process a block every 2.5 minutes, rather than Bitcoin's 10 minutes. This allows Rosecoin to confirm transactions much faster than Bitcoin.

Rosecoin uses scrypt in its proof-of-work algorithm, a sequential memory-hard function requiring asymptotically more memory than an algorithm which is not memory-hard.
