What is Germanycoin?
Germanycoin is a lite version of Bitcoin using scrypt as a proof-of-work algorithm.
- 1 minute block targets
- Block reward decreasing 1 coin every 40 days
- 42 million total coins, 50% of which are premined to give away to Germans
- 25 coins per block
- Retarget every block (Kimoto's gravity well)
For more information, as well as an immediately useable, binary version of the Germanycoin client sofware, see http://www.germanycoin.net.

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 Germanycoin development team members simply pulls it.
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 Germanycoin.
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 BITCOIN_QT_TEST=1 -o Makefile.test bitcoin-qt.pro make -f Makefile.test ./germanycoin-qt_test
