What is Masscoin?

Masscoin is a lite customized version of Litecoin using scrypt as a proof-of-work algorithm.

  • 15 sec block targets

  • subsidy halves in 4204800 blocks (~2 years)

  • 270,000,000 total coins

  • Reward is 32 coins per block

  • 5760 blocks to retarget difficulty

For more information, as well as an immediately useable, binary version of the Masscoin client sofware, see


Masscoin is released under the terms of the MIT license. See COPYING for more information or see

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 Masscoin development team members simply pulls it.

If it is a more complicated or potentially controversial change, then the patch submitter will be asked to start a discussion with the devs and community.

The patch will be accepted if there is broad consensus that it is a good thing. Developers should expect to rework and resubmit patches if the code doesn't match the project's coding conventions (see doc/coding.txt) or are controversial.

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 Masscoin.


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
make -f Makefile.test

Installing masscoin in ubuntu system

1)Download masscoind (executable) from
2)Through terminal go to source destination and type
./masscoind -daemon
(Your will get a error message) 3)Now go to root and type following command cd .masscoin
vim masscoin.conf
rpcpassword= password

4)Now repeat step 2 to get daemon active

note * make sure port no 2333 is is not busy if not then add following line in masscoin.conf to initiate daemon of your desired port rpcport=XXXX

Installing masscoin in windows system

1)Download masscoind (executable) from
2)Install the instance through setup file inside out folder
And your masscoin instance runs in your system after sucessful installation

Minning masscoin in using GPU

1)Download CGminer(preferable v3.7.2)
2)Goto source file using terminal and type following command

./cgminer --scrypt -o -u username -p paswrd --intensity d
Note: Port should same where daemon is running

Minning masscoin in using CPU(not recommended)

1)Daemon should still be active 2)Type following command ./masscoind setgenerate true

log Alert

User will get to see the log on root
cd .masscoin
tailf debug.log
