This template delivers the Gameunits network to your VM in about 20 minutes. Everything you need to get started using the Gameunits blockchain from the command line is included. You may build from source. Once installed, 'gameunitsd' will begin syncing the public gaming blockchain. You may then connect via SSH to the VM and launch 'gameunitsd' to interface with the blockchain.


What is Gameunits?

Gameunits is a peer-to-peer digital gaming currency with a distributed, decentralized public ledger, that unlike traditional banking systems, are viewable and easily audited by the people. The ability to manage transactions and issue additional Gameunits is all handled by the network of users utilizing Gameunits . Because the Gameunits network is run by the people, holders of Gameunits receive a 2-25% yearly interest through a process called staking.
