Resource Credits (RC)

The RC Plugin defines blockchain resources and limits medium and long-term use through stake-based Resource Credits. The amount of RC an account has is defined based on the amount of VESTS an account has (also see Steem Power). Based on the usage of a particular resource, there will be a market price in RC. This model was introduced in September 25th 2018 through Hardfork 20 - Velocity as an improvement to the bandwidth mechanism of the Steem blockchain.
