Skeincoin Core integration/staging tree

What is Skeincoin?

Skeincoin is an experimental new digital currency that enables instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. Skeincoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority: managing transactions and issuing money are carried out collectively by the network. Skeincoin Core is the name of open source software which enables the use of this currency.

For more information, as well as an immediately useable, binary version of the Skeincoin Core software, see


Skeincoin Core 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 Skeincoin 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 (if they haven't already) on the mailing list

The developer mailing list should be used to discuss complicated or controversial changes before working on a patch set.

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 Skeincoin.


Testing and code review is the bottleneck for development; we get more pull requests than we can review and test on short notice. Please be patient and help out by testing other people's pull requests, 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 can be compiled and run (assuming they weren't disabled in configure) with: make check

There are also regression and integration tests of the RPC interface, written in Python, that are run automatically on the build server. These tests can be run (if the test dependencies are installed) with: qa/pull-tester/

You can’t perform that action at this time.
