IOHK session RS|COIN: Cryptocurrency with central bank regulations: the RSCoin framework.
IACR Summer School on Blockchain Technologies - Corfu, Greece 2016
RSCoin is an extensible minimalistic cryptographic currency developed in IOHK. It is centralised with blockchain generated in a distributed fashion. Right now it supports multiple asset tracking with coloured coins and multisig addresses. It's extremely simple to deploy RSCoin network on EC2 instances with Nixops.
Work on adding cold storage functionality and many other features is in progress.
