Build Status

What is BitCore?

Established on 24th of April 2017, BitCore from the community for the community. BitCore has one of the lowest transaction fees on the market while possibly providing the best on-chain scaling solution in the entire crypto-sphere. Take a look at our comparison chart.

BitCore BTX preserves and implements Bitcoin features such as SegWit, which enables advanced scaling technologies like Lightning Network. Significant differences at launch time included:

  • Unique wallet addresses (prefixes of 2 and S and btx (BIP 173 bench32)
  • Command Fork System
  • Masternode System Dash Core
  • 2,100 BTX for one Masternode
  • 220 Byte Datacarriersize (OP_RETURN)
  • Hashalgorythm Timetravel10
  • Bitcore Diffshield
  • Travis CI support

For more information, as well as an immediately useable, binary version of the BitCore software, see https://bitcore.cc.

Claiming for Bitcoin holders

Claiming for the first snapshot (Bitcoin block #463604) ended 30th of October 2017. We made a new snapshot of the Bitcoin network on 2nd of November 2017 (Bitcoin block #492820). These ~5 million addresses are able to claim BitCore BTX for free, right now! Read how to here.

Development Process

The master branch is regularly built and tested, but is not guaranteed to be completely stable. Releases are created regularly to indicate new official, stable release versions of BitCore.

The contribution workflow is described in CONTRIBUTING.md.

Testing

Testing and code review is the bottleneck for development; we get more pull requests than we can review and test on short notice. Please be patient and help out by testing other people's pull requests, and remember this is a security-critical project where any mistake might cost people lots of money.

Automated Testing

Developers are strongly encouraged to write unit tests for new code, and to submit new unit tests for old code. Unit tests can be compiled and run (assuming they weren't disabled in configure) with: make check. Further details on running and extending unit tests can be found in /src/test/README.md.

There are also regression and integration tests, written in Python, that are run automatically on the build server. These tests can be run (if the test dependencies are installed) with: test/functional/test_runner.py

The Travis CI system makes sure that every pull request is built for Windows, Linux, and OS X, and that unit/sanity tests are run automatically.

License

BitCore is released under the terms of the MIT license. See COPYING for more information or see https://opensource.org/licenses/MIT.

Important: We do not accept translation changes as GitHub pull requests because the next pull from Transifex would automatically overwrite them again.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
