What is Spartancoin?

Spartancoin is a version os Litecoin using scrypt as a proof-of-work algorithm.

  • 2 minute block targets
  • subsidy halves in 400,000 blocks
  • ~50 billions total coins
  • 150,000 coins per block
  • Difficulty Retarget: Every block using Kimoto's gravity well.

For more information, as well as an immediately useable, binary version of the Spartancoin client sofware, 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 Spartancoin development team members simply pulls it.

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 Spartancoin.


FreeBSD 12.0 - x86_64: Spartancoin Qt Window - spartancoin-qt Spartancoin Daemon - spartancoind

GUI wallet Windows 32 = Spartancoin-Qt.exe daemon win32 = spartancoind.exe

Ubuntu 13.2 - 64 bit: daemon Ubuntu = spartancoind QT wallet 64bit =startancoin-qt


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.
