our new difficulty algorithm is now  available for testing under our
dev-0.1.3 branch.

testnet supports this update since block 5182, a windows build for the
development branch was also published at our sourceforge mirror:

changelog summary (again, just for testnet right now):
 [testnet] diff,adjustment: EMA retargetting.

- Exponential Moving Average diff computation, over the last 2160
   blocks duration (roughly 3 days worth of blocks).
 - active on testnet since block 5182, not enabled on livenet yet.
 - testnet will eventually allow diff=1 mining, when last block was
   found more than 10 mins ago ; livenet will divide diff by two under
   same circumstances.
 - will probably be activated on livenet in a short future according to

see commit for
further informations.

Note that testnet is the only network concerned right now, you have to
start your client with the "-testnet" parameter if you want to
participate in tests.

current dataset gathered during our tests looks quite promising,
although the extremely low difficulty do not represent the livenet

In order to get make the blockchain usable again, we may publish this
update with a short-term mandatory block update ; we'll announce the
update here when satisfied with testnet gathered datasets and ready to

If you are not running windows but unix/linux, proceed as follows:

mkdir -p ~/currencies
cd ~/currencies
git clone git://
cd terracoin
git checkout dev-0.1.3

then build as usual.
cd terracoin/src && nice make -f makefile.unix -j 4 # for the daemon
cd terracoin && qmake && nice make -j 4  # for qt-client

thanks again for your patience.

more or less retired.
