- Download the Duino-Coin repository
- Extract the zip archive you've downloaded and open the folder in command prompt
- In command prompt type
py -m pip install -r requirements.txtto 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 PC_Miner.py in the command prompt).
Raspberry Pi (automatic installation)

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.
Contributions are what make the open source community such an amazing place to be learn, inspire, and create.

Terms of service
- Duino-Coins ("DUCOs") are earned by miners with a process called mining.
- 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.
- 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).
- All miners need to use the difficulty tier made and suitable for them.
- Mining on GPUs, FPGAs and other high-efficiency hardware is allowed, but using only the
- 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.
- Any user that keeps trying to use lower difficulty than it's suited for may get temporarily blocked or permanently banned.
- Banning involves blocking the user from accessing his coins along with the removal of an account.
- Only coins earned legally are eligible for the exchange.
- Accounts may be suspended temporarily to investigate ("investigations") ToS violations ("violation" or "abuse").
- An exchange request made to the official DUCO-Exchange ("the official exchange") may be delayed and/or declined during investigations.
- Exchange requests made to the official exchange may be declined due to ToS violations and/or low funding.
- Mining with free cloud hosting services (or free VPS services - e.g. Repl.it, GitHub Actions, etc.) is not allowed as it's unfair for others.
- A user's DUCOs may be burnt if a violation can be proven.
- These terms of service can change at any time without prior notice.
- 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.
- Sending transactions that promote other services or advertise something in any form is not allowed.
- 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.
- 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).
- Accounts proven to be misleading in name or usage (impersonation, fake bots, etc.) are not allowed.
- Sending an offensive and/or unrelated verification picture and/or description will lead to immediate blocking of the account.
- Every Duino-Coin user agrees to comply with the above rules. Improper behavior will lead to blocking of the account.
- 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.
- 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).
- Balances, transactions and mining-related data is publicly available in the JSON APIs.
