BitcoinEuro

This repository is the source code of the Bitcoin Euro project website (ready on 1 April 2018)

What is Bitcoin Euro?

Bitcoin Euro is a decentralized cryptocurrency that builds on the latest version of Bitcoin, with added features and functionality. Bitcoin Euro was created to make online payments easy to do, at low cost, and all the while making sure to protect your privacy. On top of a solid foundation, Bitcoin Euro supports SegWit functionality, and easy to use wallets which are packed with advanced privacy features..

For more information, as well as an immediately useable, binary version of the BitcoinEuro Core software, see https://bitcoineuro.io/download, or read the original whitepaper.

License

BitcoinEuro Core 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 BitcoinEuro Core.

The contribution workflow is described in CONTRIBUTING.md.

Testing

Testing and code review is the bottleneck for development; we get more pull requests than we can review and test on short notice. Please be patient and help out by testing other people's pull requests, and remember this is a security-critical project where any mistake might cost people lots of money.

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 OS X, 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.
