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.

License

Germanycoin is released under the terms of the MIT license. See COPYING for more information or see http://opensource.org/licenses/MIT.

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 Germanycoin development team members simply pulls it.

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 Germanycoin.

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
./germanycoin-qt_test
