Ion sources:

We forked from PIVX and integrated ION's specific features into the PivX codebase.

By doing so, we connect to an enthusiastic and active community - leaving behind old Ion code that inherits from less actively developed and maintained code. Our main sources are now derived from:

pivx dash bitcoin
