What is Auroracoin?

Auroracoin is a cryptocurrency for Iceland started on 24th January 2014.

It was originally based on Litecoin and later in 2016 incorporated the multi-algorithm PoW approach of DigiByte.

There was a 50% premine for distribution to Icelandic residents in 2014-2015 using national identification.

Roughly half of the airdrop coins were claimed with the other half verifiably destroyed.

License

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

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 Auroracoin.

The contribution workflow is described in CONTRIBUTING.md and useful hints for developers can be found in doc/developer-notes.md.

Testing

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 macOS, and that unit/sanity tests are run automatically.

Manual Quality Assurance (QA) Testing

Changes should be tested by somebody other than the developer who wrote the code. This is especially important for large or high-risk changes. It is useful to add a test plan to the pull request description if testing the changes is not straightforward.

Developers

Developers are encouraged to create tools for Auroracoin to support the adoption of Auroracoin.

Such software, e.g. for payments, will help Icelanders start using the currency in their daily lives.
