Basecoin

DISCLAIMER: Basecoin is not associated with Coinbase.com, an excellent Bitcoin/Ethereum service.

Basecoin is an ABCI application designed to be used with the Tendermint consensus engine to form a Proof-of-Stake cryptocurrency. It also provides a general purpose framework for extending the feature-set of the cryptocurrency by implementing plugins.

Basecoin serves as a reference implementation for how we build ABCI applications in Go, and is the framework in which we implement the Cosmos Hub. It's easy to use, and doesn't require any forking - just implement your plugin, import the basecoin libraries, and away you go with a full-stack blockchain and command line tool for transacting.

WARNING: Currently uses plain-text private keys for transactions and is otherwise not production ready.

Prerequisites

Install and setup Golang.

Installation
