Bitnewcoin integration/staging tree

What is Bitnewcoin?

Bitnewcoin is a lite version of Bitcoin using scrypt as a proof-of-work algorithm.

  • 2.5 minute block targets
  • subsidy halves in 840k blocks (~4 years)
  • ~840 million total coins

The rest is the same as Bitcoin.

  • 50 coins per block
  • 2022 blocks to retarget difficulty

For more information, as well as an immediately useable, binary version of the Bitnewcoin client sofware, see http://www.bitnewcoin.com.

Begin build for ubuntu

Dependencies:

apt-get update && apt-get install git build-essential -y && apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys C70EF1F0305A1ADB9986DBD8D46F45428842CE5E &&
echo "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/bitcoin/bitcoin/ubuntu xenial main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/bitcoin.list && apt-get update && apt-get install libssl-dev libdb4.8-dev libdb4.8++-dev libboost-all-dev libminiupnpc-dev libzmq3-dev libqt5gui5 libqt5core5a libqt5dbus5 qttools5-dev qttools5-dev-tools libprotobuf-dev protobuf-compiler -y

Build daemon

cd src/

make -f makefile.unix

Done, it should generate the bitnewcoind file inside the src/ folder

qmake && make

Once you have done this, you can use your wallet, just use the following command:

./bitnewcoin-qt

Development process

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 Bitnewcoin 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 controversial.

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 Bitnewcoin.

Testing

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.

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 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 BITCOIN_QT_TEST=1 -o Makefile.test bitcoin-qt.pro
make -f Makefile.test
./bitnewcoin-qt_test
