List of Safecoin Platform Technologies
- Delayed Proof of Work (dPoW) - Additional security layer and Safecoins own consensus algorithm.
- zk-SNARKs - Safecoin Platform's privacy technology for shielded transactions
- Tokens/Assets Technology - create "colored coins" on the Safecoin Platform and use them as a layer for securites
- Reward API - Safecoin CC technology for securities
- CC - Crypto Conditions to realize "smart contract" logic on top of the Safecoin Platform
- Jumblr - Decentralized tumbler for SAFE and other cryptocurrencies
- Assetchains - Create your own Blockchain that inherits all Safecoin Platform functionalities and blockchain interoperability
- Pegged Assets - Chains that maintain a peg to fiat currencies (SafeCash in progress)
- Peerchains - Scalability solution where sibling chains form a network of blockchains
- Max Supply: 36.2 million SAFE.
- Block Time: 1M 2s
- Block Reward: See schedule
- Mining Algorithm: Equihash 144_5 (Zhash)
About this Project
Safecoin is a fork of the Komodo and Zcash projects, although we have incorporated significant changes including TLS Encryption from Horizen and Equihash 144_5, in collaboration with BTCZ. Safecoin was launched as a pure Proof of Work coin, and has never had any ICO or Sale of any kind. We are an Open Source, Peer to Peer project and we support and contribute to likewise initiatives. Same Zcash is based on Bitcoin's code, with difference Zcash intends to offer a far higher standard of privacy through a sophisticated zero-knowledge proving scheme that preserves confidentiality of transaction metadata. Technical details are available in our Protocol Specification.
#The following packages are needed: sudo apt-get install build-essential pkg-config libc6-dev m4 g++-multilib autoconf libtool ncurses-dev unzip git python python-zmq zlib1g-dev wget libcurl4-gnutls-dev bsdmainutils automake curl
This software is based on zcash and considered experimental and is continously undergoing heavy development.
The dev branch is considered the bleeding edge codebase while the master-branch is considered tested (unit tests, runtime tests, functionality). At no point of time do the Safecoin Platform developers take any responsbility for any damage out of the usage of this software. Safecoin builds for all operating systems out of the same codebase. Follow the OS specific instructions from below.
git clone https://github.com/fair-exchange/safecoin --branch master --single-branch cd safecoin ./zcutil/fetch-params.sh # -j8 = using 8 threads for the compilation - replace 8 with number of threads you want to use ./zcutil/build.sh -j8 #This can take some time.
Ensure you have brew and the command line tools installed (comes automatically with XCode) and run:
brew update && brew install gcc@6 git clone https://github.com/fair-exchange/safecoin --branch master --single-branch cd safecoin ./zcutil/fetch-params.sh # -j8 = using 8 threads for the compilation - replace 8 with number of threads you want to use ./zcutil/build-mac.sh -j8 #This can take some time.
Use a debian cross-compilation setup with mingw for windows and run:
git clone https://github.com/fair-exchange/safecoin --branch master --single-branch cd safecoin ./zcutil/fetch-params.sh # -j8 = using 8 threads for the compilation - replace 8 with number of threads you want to use ./zcutil/build-win.sh -j8 #This can take some time.
safecoin is experimental and a work-in-progress. Use at your own risk.
To reset the Safecoin blockchain change into the ~/.safecoin data directory and delete the corresponding files by running
rm -rf blocks chainstate debug.log safecoinstate db.log
Create a safecoin.conf file:
mkdir ~/.safecoin cd ~/.safecoin touch safecoin.conf #Add the following lines to the safecoin.conf file: rpcuser=yourrpcusername rpcpassword=yoursecurerpcpassword rpcbind=127.0.0.1 txindex=1 addnode=dnsseedua.local.support addnode=dnsseed.ipv6admin.com addnode=dnsseed.fair.exchange addnode=explorer.safecoin.org addnode=18.104.22.168 addnode=22.214.171.124 addnode=126.96.36.199 addnode=node.safc.cc
Create your own Blockchain based on Safecoin
Safecoin allows anyone to create a runtime fork which represents an independent Blockchain. Below are the detailed instructions: Setup two independent servers with at least 1 server having a static IP and build safecoind on those servers.
On server 1 (with static IP) run:
./safecoind -ac_name=name_of_your_chain -ac_supply=100000 -bind=ip_of_server_1 &
On server 2 run:
./safecoind -ac_name=name_of_your_chain -ac_supply=100000 -addnode=ip_of_server_1 -gen &
Safecoin is based on Zcash which is unfinished and highly experimental. Use at your own risk.

NOTE TO EXCHANGES: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1605144.msg17732151#msg17732151 There is a small chance that an outbound transaction will give an error due to mismatched values in wallet calculations. There is a -exchange option that you can run safecoind with, but make sure to have the entire transaction history under the same -exchange mode. Otherwise you will get wallet conflicts.
To change modes:
a) backup all privkeys (launch safecoind with
b) start a totally new sync including
wallet.dat, launch with same
c) stop it before it gets too far and import all the privkeys from a) using
safecoin-cli importwallet filename
d) resume sync till it gets to chaintip
./safecoind -exportdir=/tmp & ./safecoin-cli dumpwallet example ./safecoin-cli stop mv ~/.safecoin ~/.safecoin.old && mkdir ~/.safecoin && cp ~/.safecoin.old/safecoin.conf ~/.safecoin.old/peers.dat ~/.safecoin ./safecoind -exchange -exportdir=/tmp & ./safecoin-cli importwallet /tmp/example
