An Open Source Bitcoin Exchange

Copyright © 2013 Buttercoin Developers

What is Buttercoin?

Following the events of April 2013 in which Bitcoin value dropped dramatically as a result of the short comings of existing exchanges it was decided that there should be a community driven and open source exchange. As such Buttercoin was born out of neccesity for this. Buttercoin allows the decentralisation of exchange between Bitcoin and other currencies.

Development process

Developers work in their own trees, then submit pull requests when they are sure their feature or bug fix is ready.

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 or are controversial.

The master branch is regularly built and tested, but is not guaranteed to be completely stable.

This is an open project and all are encouraged to contribute.


Automated Testing

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 test/.
