PointCoin is a tool to get university level students interacting and mining with a block chain based digital currency.
Classes using PointCoin:
Why did you name it PointCoin?
For every block the student mines they earn a single point on their assignment.
100 blocks = 100 percent!
What are the differences between Bitcoin and PointCoin?
PointCoin's block reward is a constant 10 points per block. A block difficulty retarget is every 24 blocks, which is every four hours. PointCoin addresses start with a P. Finally PointCoin's default port is 22228 and every PointCoin wire message starts with
0xbaceface instead of Bitcoin's
0xd9b4bef9. For a documented list of changes from bitcoinj to pointcoinj, please refer to [Changes to bitcoinj](Changes to bitcoinj)
