About Veles

Veles Core is innovative cryptocurrency supporting multiple PoW algorithms, with unique dynamic block reward system. Main goal of the project is to implement decentralised VPN solution to protect privacy and anonymity of Internet users around the globe.

Development Process

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 Veles Core.

The contribution workflow is described in and useful hints for developers can be found in doc/

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

Build Instructions and Notes

  1. Clone the repository and checkout to latest stable release Tag using following commands. (Alternatively you can download and extract the latest source tarball manually from Releases page on our GitHub.)

    git clone
    cd veles
    git checkout `git tag | sort -V | grep -v "\-rc" | tail -1`
  2. Build Veles Core: Configure and build the headless Veles Core binaries as well as the GUI (if Qt is found). You can disable the GUI build by passing --without-gui to configure.

  3. It is recommended to build and run the unit tests:

    make check
