What is LimeCoin?
LimeCoin is a cryptocurrency based in DarkCoin using X11 as a proof-of-work algorithm.
- Super secure hashing algorithm: 11 rounds of scientific hashing functions (blake, bmw, groestl, jh, keccak, skein, luffa, cubehash, shavite, simd, echo)
- GPU/CPU only mining
- Block generation: 10 minutes
- Difficulty Retargets every 18 block using Dark Gravity Wave
- Est. ~5,2M Coins in 2015, ~10,4M in 2016.
- Anonymous blockchain using DarkSend technology
- Block Reward: 100 Coins
- Premine: 2%
For more information, as well as an immediately useable, binary version of the LimeCoin client sofware, see http://www.LimeCoin.org
Benefits of Using LimeCoin
X11 - Originally from Darkcoin and created by Evan Duffield. X11 uses the following for complex hashing: blake, bmw, groestl, jh, keccak, skein, luffa, cubehash, shavite, simd and echo.
Energy Saving - Since X11 is much less strenuous on graphics cards, it runs a lot cooler and saves a lot on electricity costs. This is an extremely important factor, the X11 algo can run coolly without any added external cooling and hence allowing for more underclocking and undervolting. It’s a win-win situation!
There is GPU mining software available for X11 which makes it a suitable hashing solution.
QR Code - LimeCoin has built in QR code support so you can generate QR codes from within the software.
DNS Seed Node - This is used by nodes to find others on the network meaning that when you turn Limecoin on it connects to he DNS Seed node to find other Hirocoin clients without any manual effort.

Developers work in their own trees, then submit pull requests when they think their feature or bug fix is ready.
If it is a simple/trivial/non-controversial change, then one of the limecoin development team members simply pulls it.
If it is a more complicated or potentially controversial change, then the patch submitter will be asked to start a discussion (if they haven't already) on the mailing list.
The patch will be accepted if there is broad consensus that it is a good thing.
Developers should expect to rework and resubmit patches if the code doesn't
match the project's coding conventions (see
doc/coding.txt) or are
master branch is regularly built and tested, but is not guaranteed to be
completely stable. Tags are created
regularly to indicate new official, stable release versions of limecoin.
Testing and code review is the bottleneck for development; we get more pull requests than we can review and test. Please be patient and help out, and remember this is a security-critical project where any mistake might cost people lots of money.
Developers are strongly encouraged to write unit tests for new code, and to submit new unit tests for old code.
Unit tests for the core code are in
src/test/. To compile and run them:
cd src; make -f makefile.unix test
Unit tests for the GUI code are in
src/qt/test/. To compile and run them:
qmake BITCOIN_QT_TEST=1 -o Makefile.test bitcoin-qt.pro make -f Makefile.test ./limecoin-qt_test
