What is SlimCoin?
SlimCoin (abbreviated SLM), is the first known cryptocurrency designed as a combined proof-of-stake/proof-of-work system that can be mined using a special "Dcrypt" algorithm. SlimCoin is build upon Bitcoin and PeerCoin, but unique in the fact that it is more energy efficiency, as proof-of-stake blocks require minimal energy consumption. The Dcrypt algorithm is extremely anti-asic and currently can only be mined with a CPU. It is made so mining with hardware will be inefficient, given the intensity of this algorithm, thus forcing the users to mine through the proof-of-stake. Thus, with SlimCoin energy consumption would decrease over time as proof-of-work blocks become less rewarding and coin generation becomes increasingly based on proof-of-stake block generation.
- Client and Source:
- Developers work in their own forks, 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 development team members simply pulls it.
- If it is a more complicated or potentially controversial change, then the change may be discussed in the pull request, or the requester may be asked to start a discussion SlimCoin Talk for a broader community discussion.
- 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 they don't match the project's coding conventions (see coding.txt) or are controversial.
- From time to time a pull request will become outdated. If this occurs, and the pull is no longer automatically mergeable; a comment on the pull will be used to issue a warning of closure. Pull requests closed in this manner will have their corresponding issue labeled 'stagnant'.
