Zetacoin Core integration/staging tree

What is Zetacoin?

Zetacoin is an experimental new digital currency that enables instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. Zetacoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority: managing transactions and issuing money are carried out collectively by the network. Zetacoin Core is the name of open source software which enables the use of this currency.

For more information, as well as an immediately useable, binary version of the Zetacoin Core software, see


Zetacoin Core is released under the terms of the MIT license. See COPYING for more information or 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 Zetacoin 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/ 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 Zetacoin.


Automated Testing

Developers are strongly encouraged to write unit tests for new code, and to submit new unit tests for old code. Unit tests can be compiled and run (assuming they weren't disabled in configure) with: make check

Manual Quality Assurance (QA) Testing

Large changes should have a test plan, and should be tested by somebody other than the developer who wrote the code. See for how to create a test plan.
