VaporCoin is a simple blockchain transaction ledger implementation, built in Swift using Vapor.
Functional, simple and easy to understand implementation that favors learning over robust security and usability. This is not intended to be an 'altcoin'
- Block time 60 seconds
- 6000 transactions per block (Effective 100 txns/s rate)
- Block difficulty updated every 60 blocks (hourly)
- Block reward 50 full units/block (1 unit = 100 000 000 sub-units)
- Block reward halved every 4 years (2 102 400 blocks at 525 600 blocks per year)
- Total amount of full units will be roughly ~209 829 375
- Simplified Bitcoin-style transactions, UTXO (No scripting capability)
- ECDSA signatures
Proof of Work (PoW) algorithm:
- Simplified Bitcoin-style. Single SHA256 hash of block header
- Previous hash
- Merkle root of transactions in block
- UNIX timestamp
- Target difficulty
- Nonce (32 bit)
- JSON WebSocket p2p communication / Incomplete
- Peer discovery
- Locally hosted web interface to send and receive transactions, change settings and monitor blockchain status.
- Fractional difficulty adjustment (Using BigInt)
- Database logic
- Proper node syncing
- UTXO Transactions
- Establish consensus
brew install vapor/tap/vapor In project root directory: vapor update vapor build vapor run If you are using Xcode, make sure to select `My Mac` as target, and select the `Run` scheme.
To mine a block, you can lower the diffBits amount in Droplet+Setup.swift line 17:
let miner = Miner(coinbase: "coinbaseAddressNotImplementedYet", diffBits: 20, threadCount: 4)
