WOODCOIN  木币
A sustainable public digital currency built for longevity





Have you ever wondered what will happen when the "halving" or geometric series emission coins like BTC, LTC, BCH, XMR and others reach a very low coinbase reward?  Without a substantial coinbase reward it becomes harder to provide the necessary security.  

One solution to this problem is to replace the geometric series emission schedule with a harmonic series emission schedule.  This produces a logarithmically growing money supply which while still "capped" (at ~28 million) maintains substantial reserve in coinbase, with which to pay out to miners far into the future.    

It also features improved cryptography both in proof of work function and in digital signature keypairs.

With two minute blocks, LOG is a long-term public ledger for you to do with as you please.



中文

-----



No premine, no checkpoints, no supernodes, no presale
No changes to emission algorithm.  
No airdrop.

PAPER WALLETS
(and wallet manipluation)
http://logaddress.org





FIRSTS

1) First pure skein coin.

Are you going to argue with Bruce Schneier?  I didn't think so.  The NSA didn't choose this hash for SHA3, so unless it's a double fakeout you should be safe.  Skein is a great hash function and runs really fast on a CPU.  ASICs will grow on trees.  Double skein is the woodcutting algo, consisting of two skein512 hashes of the block header and nothing else.  

2) First Logarithmic release coin.
Many coins follow a hard reward reduction curve: a geometric series.  Instead we use a harmonic series as it is gentler to the ear and actually works long term without infinite inflation or death by fees.  The result is a logarithmically increasing supply of logs.  

supply = 1000000* ( log(nHeight) + gamma )   -  forest

   where gamma = euler-mascheroni constant
              forest  =  5187377.51763962

This is a long term release plan.  
Money supply limit: 27625814.3 LOG  
However these coins will not all be released until after the Julian calendar year 300 million.
Half the coins will be released in roughly the year 2305.  
For more information on how a logarithmic release schedule works please see the whitepaper.  

The supply is entirely specified by this code:  

Code:
CAmount GetBlockSubsidy(int nHeight, const Consensus::Params& consensusParams)
{
    int64_t nSubsidy = 1000000 * COIN;
    if (nHeight<100) return 1*COIN;
    else return nSubsidy/nHeight;
}

If you are using a coin without looking at the code that governs the release schedule, one might ask - why bother with public coin at all?  This is the monetary policy and it is verifiably capped (non-inflationary) and long lived (substantial block reward incentivising miners without high fee for a long time).  


3) First prime256v1 ECDSA curve coin.

Well, we don't have any demonstrable break for secp256k1 (as used by bitcoin, litecoin, and many others), but a few bits of extra cryptographic security is a good thing.  This is the ANSI X9 standard curve published for financial institutions, with the most usage time under its belt, and we use it for digitally signing your logs and creating your woodcoin addresses.  Many people call it more secure than secp256k1, for a review take a look http://woodcoin.info/2016/05/12/secp256k1-vs-p256/ here.

By Satoshi and Satoshi lite.  

FOREST

The steepest part of the logarithmic curve is the very start.  The rewards of the first 100 blocks were therefore set to zero to avoid these high rewards.  These blocks would have yielded more than five million LOG, so these form an old growth forest that will never be chopped.  The ents are safe here.  The money supply formula above therefore needs to have this forest subtracted.  The trees are our friends and guardians, treat them with respect!  The trees of the world will be more honored and respected as we move into a post-fiat world.  This coin is made with respect for the trees as our family.  In addtition to the first hundred blocks, other donations to the forest have been accepted at this address:

WeHonorTheForestsAndTheTrees4pPXTQ

These LOG are effectively removed from the money supply.

DEPENDENCIES
This should build as bitcoin does:

sudo apt-get install git build-essential libboost-all-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libdb5.1-dev libdb5.1++-dev qt-sdk libminiupnpc-dev
git clone https://github.com/funkshelper/woodcoin.git

TO MAKE WOODCOIND (command line chopper)

cd woodcoin
make -f makefile.unix
./woodcoind &
(now you need to create ~/.woodcoin/woodcoin.conf as instructed)
./woodcoind &
./woodcoind setgenerate true

TO MAKE WOODCOIN-QT (gui chopper)

cd woodcoin
qmake
make
./Woodcoin-qt

Soundtrack is lower priority on the devlist now, sorry.  
I don't want to give too many hints but think Zhou Tonged meets Monty Python Wink

I'm shure that also www.betasharex.com is going to add you Wink

Contacting them now via ticket to add WoodCoin! It could be a great opportunity to let everybody knows about woodcoin and woodchopping! Tongue

We like it! Nice to see another coin with our lineage marks in its code. Your GUI mining bits are out-dated for QRK based coins, we would suggest you check out this commit:

https://github.com/MaxGuevara/quark/commit/2895bdb66730be86f08d741e1555fb1c68a1ed47

For a better/cleaner way of doing the GUI mining.

For those interested, here's a Windows build:



https://mega.co.nz/#!jcE30BKC!tIyT-GLa8kJn26-19LqubfoRo9pS8kw8COZYExsopDg

Its clean aside from having the "setgenerate" command which flags as a "Bitcoin Miner:"
