sudo apt install python3 python3-pip git python3-pil python3-pil.imagetk -y # Install dependencies
git clone # Clone Duino-Coin repository
cd duino-coin
python3 -m pip install -r requirements.txt # Install pip dependencies

After doing this, you are good to go with launching the software (e.g. python3

Windows (manual installation)

  1. Download and install Python 3 (make sure you add Python and Pip to your PATH)
  2. Download the Duino-Coin repository
  3. Extract the zip archive you've downloaded and open the folder in command prompt
  4. In command prompt type py -m pip install -r requirements.txt to install required pip dependencies

After doing this, you are good to go with launching the software (just double click on desired .py files or type py in the command prompt).

Raspberry Pi (automatic installation)

sudo chmod a+x

DUCO, wDUCO, bscDUCO, maticDUCO & celoDUCO

Duino-Coin is a hybrid currency providing support both to centralized and decentralized ways of storing funds. Duino-Coins can be converted to wDUCO, bscDUCO or others which are the same Duino-Coins but "wrapped" (stored) on other networks as tokens. An example tutorial on using wDUCO is available in the wDUCO wiki. Coins can be wrapped directly from your web Wallet - click the Wrap Coins button to start.

Community-made softwares

Please note that these softwares are not developed by us and we do not give any guarantees that use of them will not result in an account getting banned. Treat them as a curiosity.

Terms of service

  1. Duino-Coins ("DUCOs") are earned by miners with a process called mining.
  2. Mining is described as using DUCO-S1 algorithm (as explained in the Duino-Coin Whitepaper), in which finding a correct result to a mathematical problem gives the miner a reward.
  3. Mining can be officially done using CPUs, AVR boards (e.g. Arduino boards), Single-board computers (e.g. Raspberry Pi boards), ESP32/8266 boards with the usage of official miners (other officially allowed miners are described in the upper part of README).
  4. All miners need to use the difficulty tier made and suitable for them.
  5. Mining on GPUs, FPGAs and other high-efficiency hardware is allowed, but using only the EXTREME mining difficulty.
  6. Any users using miners on difficulty not suited for their hardware (see the difficulty list) will be automatically throttled by being moved to correct difficulty tier.
  7. Any user that keeps trying to use lower difficulty than it's suited for may get temporarily blocked or permanently banned.
  8. Banning involves blocking the user from accessing his coins along with the removal of an account.
  9. Only coins earned legally are eligible for the exchange.
  10. Accounts may be suspended temporarily to investigate ("investigations") ToS violations ("violation" or "abuse").
  11. An exchange request made to the official DUCO-Exchange ("the official exchange") may be delayed and/or declined during investigations.
  12. Exchange requests made to the official exchange may be declined due to ToS violations and/or low funding.
  13. Mining with free cloud hosting services (or free VPS services - e.g., GitHub Actions, etc.) is not allowed as it's unfair for others.
  14. A user's DUCOs may be burnt if a violation can be proven.
  15. These terms of service can change at any time without prior notice.
  16. Having alt accounts without a rational reason (e.g. for multi-mining) are not allowed - multiple accounts used on a single computer/network will be blocked, unless whitelisted.
  17. Sending transactions that promote other services or advertise something in any form is not allowed.
  18. Sending a lot of transactions in a short amount of time can trigger the Kolka system which will rate limit and/or block the user.
  19. Community-made softwares need to comply with the rules (terms of service, difficulty tiers, etc.) - abusing the system will lead to blocking of the software and/or the user(s).
  20. Accounts proven to be misleading in name or usage (impersonation, fake bots, etc.) are not allowed.
  21. Sending an offensive and/or unrelated verification picture and/or description will lead to immediate blocking of the account.
  22. Every Duino-Coin user agrees to comply with the above rules. Improper behavior will lead to blocking of the account.

Privacy policy

  1. On the master server we only store usernames, hashed passwords (with the help of bcrypt), account creation dates, last login times and e-mails of users as their data.
  2. E-mails are not publicly available and are only used for contacting user when needed, confirming exchanges on the DUCO-Exchange and receiving an occasional newsletter (planned for the future).
  3. Balances, transactions and mining-related data is publicly available in the JSON APIs.
  4. The privacy policy may be changed in the future, although users will receive a notification prior to the changes.
