Forked from Bitcoin reference wallet 0.8.6

Blakecoin Wallet

https://www.blakecoin.org

Blake-256(optimized) is faster than Scrypt, SHA-256D, Keccak, Groestl

The algorithm was written as a candidate for sha3, Based on round one candidate code from the sphlib 2.1 and reduced rounds to 8.

Tweaks Removed some of the double hashing from the wallet as it is wasteful on compute, No changes to the ecdsa public/private function as that has proven to be secure so far on bitcoin.

What is Blakecoin?

Blakecoin is an experimental new digital currency that enables instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. Blakecoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority: managing transactions and issuing money are carried out collectively by the network.

Ubuntu 12.04 dependancies that are used on the Linux build machine:

git-core build-essential libssl-dev libboost-all-dev libdb5.1-dev libdb5.1++-dev libgtk2.0-dev libminiupnpc-dev qt4-qmake mingw32 synaptic qt-sdk qt4-dev-tools libqt4-dev libqt4-core libqt4-gui libdb++-dev
