What is Biton?
Biton using scrypt as a proof-of-work algorithm.
- 60 second block targets
- subsidy halves in 1000k blocks (~2 years)
- ~184 million total coins
The rest is the same as Biton.
- 120 coins per block
- 5 blocks to retarget difficulty
For more information, as well as an immediately useable, binary version of the Biton client sofware, see http://www.biton.pw.

Developers work in their own trees, then submit pull requests when they think their feature or bug fix is ready.
If it is a simple/trivial/non-controversial change, then one of the Biton development team members simply pulls it.
If it is a more complicated or potentially controversial change, then the patch submitter will be asked to start a discussion with the devs and community.
The patch will be accepted if there is broad consensus that it is a good thing.
Developers should expect to rework and resubmit patches if the code doesn't
match the project's coding conventions (see
doc/coding.txt) or are
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 Biton.
Testing and code review is the bottleneck for development; we get more pull requests than we can review and test. Please be patient and help out, and remember this is a security-critical project where any mistake might cost people lots of money.
Developers are strongly encouraged to write unit tests for new code, and to submit new unit tests for old code.
Unit tests for the core code are in
src/test/. To compile and run them:
cd src; make -f makefile.unix test
Unit tests for the GUI code are in
src/qt/test/. To compile and run them:
qmake BITON_QT_TEST=1 -o Makefile.test biton-qt.pro make -f Makefile.test ./biton-qt_test apt-get install build-essential libssl-dev libdb-dev libdb++-dev libboost-all-dev git libssl1.0.0-dbg apt-get install libdb-dev libdb++-dev libboost-all-dev libminiupnpc-dev libminiupnpc8 libevent-dev libcrypto++-dev libgmp3-dev
