Argentum integration/staging tree

Build Status

What is Argentum?

Argentum is an experimental digital currency that enables instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. Argentum uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority: managing transactions and issuing money are carried out collectively by the network. Argentum is the name of open source software which enables the use of this currency.


Argentum is a fork of Bitcoin Core and inherits the terms of the MIT license. See COPYING for more information or see

Development Process

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

The contribution workflow is described in


See files in the doc directory for generic build instructions for Windows, OSX and Unix.
