Vertcoin Core integration/staging tree
What is Vertcoin?
Vertcoin is a fork of Bitcoin that is designed to resist the monopolisation of mining power.
- 2.5 minute block targets
- subsidy halves in 840k blocks (~4 years)
- ~84 million total coins
- 50 coins per block (25 after block 840,000)
- Difficulty retargeting every block to recover from large hashrate swings
- Lyra2REv2 proof of work algorithm for ASIC resistance
For more information, as well as an immediately useable, binary version of the Vertcoin client software, see http://www.vertcoin.org.
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 Vertcoin Core.
Developers work on their own forks and submit pull requests in order to merge
master. Due to the relatively small size of the development team,
developers also commit directly to the repo often. Anyone is allowed to contribute
though and useful pull requests will almost always be accepted given various
obvious stipulations regarding stability etc.
Vertcoin currently relies on Bitcoin Core for its testcases, and few of them are known to work, though the software is based on fully test conforming upstream Bitcoin Core versions. We would be grateful to those who can help port the existing Bitcoin Core test cases to Vertcoin such that they can be used to assure correctness.
Changes to translations as well as new translations can be submitted to as pull requests to this repo or to upstream Bitcoin Core.
