Paycoin Core integration/staging tree

Build Status

What is Paycoin?

Paycoin is an experimental new digital currency that enables instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. Paycoin uses a proof-of-stake method in order for the Paycoin blockchain network to achieve distributed consensus. Paycoin Core is the name of open source software which enables the use of this currency.

For more information, as well as an immediately useable, binary version of the Paycoin Core software, see


Paycoin Core is released under the terms of the MIT license. See COPYING for more information or see

Development process

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 Paycoin 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 TalkXPY forum

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/ or are controversial.

The 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 Paycoin.


Changes to translations as well as new translations can be submitted to Paycoin Core's Transifex page.

Translations are periodically pulled from Transifex and merged into the git repository. See the translation process for details on how this works.

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