IMPORTANT

This is an old project and isn't being actively maintained. Some of the libraries have since been deprecated and this may cause some of the dependencies to fail. We're not providing any support for this project anymore.

Coin Exchange Backend

Introduction

The platform acts as cryptocurrency exchange server to be used for retail and institutional trading. It can be accessed by any front end or mobile service comsuming the provided REST API.

Context

The product serves as platform for trading different digital currencies. Currently following trading currencies are supported out of the box.

  • Bitcoin
  • Litecoin

The platform will mostly be a self contained product with not much integration required with external system(s). However, the billing module will have to support some different mechanisms for depositing and withdrawing money into user accounts that may include:

  • Bitcoin deposit / withdrawal
  • Litecon deposit / withdrawal

Problem Statement

Cryptocurrency market has been on rise in the recent years and has become a popular financial entity. The crypto market is decentralized it's not being controlled by any single authority offering more control to the users. Some of the cryptocurrencies can also be used by setting a fixed supply cap making them more imune to inflation. This makes the cryptocurrency market highly profitable.

Solution

To gain profit from cryptocurrency market apart from investing in trading cryptocurrencies itself one can take advantage from market liquidity by creating their own cryptocurrency exchange. Creating a cryptocurrency exchange offers the advantage of being a part of the cyrpto market itself and one can take advantage of the transaction fees to generate revenue.

  2. MySql Settings:
  3. username = root,
  4. host = localhost,
  5. port = 3306.

MySQL Connector for .NET:

Download and install the MySQL connector for .NET from here: http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/net/

Bitcoin:

Download and install bitcoin core from bitcoin website.

If you want to run bitcoin in testnet, edit the configuration file named bitcoin.conf located in %appdata% under bitcoin directory and add the following propteris:

  • testnet=1
  • server=1
  • rpcport=[Same as the value provided in Web.config file]
  • rpcuser=[Same as the value provided in Web.config file]
  • rpcpassword=[Same as the value provided in Web.config file]

Litecoin:

Similar to Bitcoin download and install litecoin core from litecoin website.

If you want to run bitcoin in testnet, edit the configuration file named litecoin.conf located in %appdata% under litecoin directory and add the following propteris:

  • testnet=1
  • server=1
  • rpcport=[Same as the value provided in Web.config file]
  • rpcuser=[Same as the value provided in Web.config file]
  • rpcpassword=[Same as the value provided in Web.config file]

Once done, go to the litecoin installaion directory and perform the following tasks:

  • Copy the executable file and make a shortcut on the desktop.
  • Right click the shortcut and go to properties and in the shortcut tab edit the target location by adding -testnet at the of the existing value after which your target location will look something like this: "C:\Program Files\Litecoin\litecoin-qt.exe" -testnet
