GOSTCoin Core

GOSTCoin (GST) is a digital currency based on blockchain technology. It allows instant payments worldwide with focus on privacy and security of its users.

Why GOSTCoin?

GOSTCoin uses Soviet and Russian government standard cryptography: GOST R 34.10-2012 for signature and GOST R 34.11-2012 for hash. More info about crypto.

GOSTCoin is using Invisible Internet (I2P) as a secure network layer.

GOSTCoin needs I2P router

Install and run i2pd.

Enable SAM API in i2pd. Edit in i2pd.conf:

enabled = true

and restart i2pd. Local TCP port 7656 should be available.
