LEARNCOIN [LEARN] - The coin that helps you learn to make your own cryptocurrency!

The coin that teaches you about creating your own cryptocurrency
I decided to create this coin for 2 reasons:
1. to show people how easy it is to create your own coin which can teach you a lot about command line interface, simple coding, git and just generally get into programming the easy way
2. to show people that they shouldn't necessarily buy into (or invest their mining power!) into any old coin that comes along, because as you'll see it's really not that hard, and why should you give money to some guy who spent like 4-5 hours doing some copying and pasting and tells you what he's "created" is the best coin there has ever been.

I don't expect this coin to be a huge hit, in fact it's probably full of bugs that will almost immediately break it if anyone starts mining.

What you will get out of this coin is the chance to follow along with me as I build the coin (I'm committing my whole day off today to doing this so I  hope you enjoy it)

Key Info / What you'll get:
A series of youtube videos that shows you every step of the way how to (poorly) "make" your own cryptocurrency.
A "dev" who wants to learn / be criticized along the way
A fair release. This is a scrypt coin and I've only got a single r9 280x so my premine will suck Cheesy so ASICs feel free to jump on board. Who knows, it might even fork and I won't know how to fix it! How fun!
How I created the first pool which will be avaialble at launch (without a domain, because I'm too poor to buy one)

Coin Specs
Algo: Scrypt (cloned from Litecoin)
Block Reward: 50 LERNS
Block Time: 30s
Retarget: 5 minutes (10 blocks)
Total coins 84000000
Confirmations 20

I intentionally left them all unchanged to show the simplest and quickest way to do it.
I think there are plenty of guides around on how to do that Cheesy

Include those guides then into this! Make the guides deep as possible, from basic - to experimental, include PoS coin etc...you can do this!  Smiley

I actually support the idea of this cooin.. You know what. You've done a good job on this.

Teaching more people to make coins might actually help. But then again it might actually just spawn a whole shitload of new clone coins with nothing to offer either.. really hard to say. I for one like learning though.. And still think this is a decent idea educating people.. Maybe some actaully learn.

I agree, it would give us new altcoins, still main thing in forking bitcoin client is learning lots new including learning how bitcoin works, understanding the protocol itself.

Update:
Somehow, the network hashrate is 20MH/s and nothing has broken.
This is surprising!

Also, hopefully this serves as a PSA to *NOT* buy into shitty altcoins.

Maybe once I make ONE MILLION DOLLARS in IPO I'll release a professional(ish) coin Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
