(A Funkenstein the Dwarf Presentation)
While many dwarfs were content to toil in the mines I have always felt affinity for the forest.
Now you can chop logs.
The Woodcoin chain is a log structured database.
The money supply is logarithmic.
The unit is log.
RPC Port = 9338
P2P Ports = 8338 (testnet 18338)
In Wallet woodcutting = Console, "setgenerate true"
120 Second Block Target, Diff Retarget every 1 hour
30 Confirms for spendable-coins
Block reward = Harmonic Series
1000000/nHeight logs (after first 100 blocks which form unspendable forest of 5187377 logs)
Money Supply = 1000000*(log(nHeight) + gamma) gamma=Euler-Mascheroni constant
New ECDSA curve: X9_62_prime256v1
Algo = Pure Skein (double skein) Bruce Schneier is a lumberjack and NSA didn't choose this algo.
Some binaries are stored at https://github.com/paulmadore/woodcoin-dot-org/blob/master/bins. We try to keep Woodcoin accessible to all.
============================================= Build Instructions
TYou will need these dependencies or equivalent:
sudo apt-get install git build-essential libboost-all-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libdb5.1-dev libdb5.1++-dev qt-sdk libminiupnpc-dev libqrencode-dev
Get the source with this command:
To build woodcoin-qt issue “qmake” and then “make“. qt4 is required, on some systems you may need to issue “export QT_SELECT=qt4” to ensure the proper version is used.
To build woodcoind by itself navigate to /src/ and issue make -f makefile.unix.
To start woodcutting with woodcoind, simply launch it like this:
./woodcoind setgenerate true
For the graphical client, simply go into the debug window (under Help) and type:
v1.0 - Baruk Khazad! Woodcutting for the masses.
v1.1 - Hard fork to litecoin branch. Block 3002.
v1.2 - Add paper wallet and QR code functionality.
