Nodes form the RChain peer-to-peer network. The network layer is the lowest level component in the architecture that will eventually support RChain’s large-scale blockchain operations.
RNode v0.6 is the version that will support the launch of the RChain test net. This release introduces features that support the RChain genesis block creation and approval process, the RChain name registry, and client API's to retrieve data from the blockchain. This release also includes improvements to the communications module and bug fixes improving consensus functionality and RNode operator usability.RNode user guide

Rholang is a new language for writing smart contracts that run on the RChain virtual machine. Developers can write and run Rholang in RNode, the node of the RChain blockchain. Rholang can also be run using community-developed tools. See below for more information and links to these tools.Rholang Tutorial Rholang specification Clarifications on pattern-matching
RSpace is a Scala library that has been designed to provide a disk-based tuple space that both meets the persistence needs of RChain’s Rholang project and offers a novel storage model for developers to use in their own projects.
