Welcome to the HYCON source code repository! Our goal at HYCON is to enable a faster and more scalable blockchain for many different use cases.
We have a lot of exciting developments coming up, and we'll have our timeline added to Issues in the near future.
For more information about HYCON, visit the website at https://hycon.io or read the whitepaper in one of the following languages:
Full node on the main Hycon network
If you would like the entire Hycon blockchain locally and want to interact with the network (create wallets and transfer funds), you can sync quickly to the current state of the network after deploying a Hycon node. There are two methods to do so: using the latest release or clone the repository. We highly recommend using a release if you do not plan on developing
We aim to create a release periodically with improvements to node and the network. You can find our latest releases in the Releases section.
Downloading and unzipping the archived file will allow you to run the full node and mine on your system. For more information, check out the Wiki article here. We currently support Ubuntu, MacOS X, and Windows operating systems.
Clone and Deploy
- Clone the repository or pull the latest commit
- Ensure that you have
$ npm ito install the required node dependencies
$ npm run hyconto start your node and sync with the network
If you only want to interact with the network (create wallets and transfer funds), you can download any of the following applications to create or recover your wallet.
Hycon Pocket (Mobile App)
The documentation for all of the api routes available on a hycon node can be found at docs.hycon.io.
HYCON currently uses the ASIC-resistant
cryptonight-v7 proof-of-work algorithm. We have made some adjustments to xmrig to ensure that the GPU miner runs smoothly with the HYCON node. For your ease of use, binary releases have been created for each variant.
Please check out the repository that is relevant to your system to begin mining:
Credits to xmrig for the development of their cryptonight miner.
