What is AIRcoin?
AIRcoin is a version of Bitcoin using scrypt as a proof-of-work algorithm, supported by the Allied Investors Association. Based off of Litecoin, this coin is differentiated by the economic conceptual innovations and insights behind its development. It is, at its core, an economic experiment, but also a vital exploration of real-world financial institution integration into the crypto currency community. To the inception of an idea. The an inquiry for backing of face-to-name banks, wealthy individuals, has already been sought after by our team, and the responses were quite surprising to say the least.
Coins are denoted by the ticker AIR or /A.

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 AIRcoin 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 with one of the Allied Investors Association founders, or start a discussion on the AIRcoin forum.
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
master branch is regularly built and tested, but is not guaranteed to be
completely stable. [Tags]
(https://github.com/Allied-Investors-Association/AIRcoin/tags) are created
regularly to indicate new official, stable release versions of AIRcoin.
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.
Developers are strongly encouraged to write unit tests for new code, and to submit new unit tests for old code.
Unit tests for the core code are in
src/test/. To compile and run them:
cd src; make -f makefile.unix test
Unit tests for the GUI code are in
src/qt/test/. To compile and run them:
qmake AIRCOIN_QT_TEST=1 -o Makefile.test bitcoin-qt.pro make -f Makefile.test ./AIRcoin-qt_test
