Not quite there yet.  I've been following some instructions and i am having a slight complication.  When i get back to the dev machine I'll post what I've done so far.

I will NEVER ask for any kind of funds up front in a buy/sale of anything on bitcointalk.

But you have a working root and genesis block?

No... I was making fun of myself for misspelling genesis block as "Genesis Bock"

Ok, so I cloned this archive and compiled the headless version:
https://github.com/sacarlson/MultiCoin


I then manually created the ./.bitcoin directory -- and placed this config file in there:
I copied this from the archive and made slight changes -- this is for testing purposes only:


bitcoin.conf

# this is an example config for freecoin that you would edit and run to create a new block chain to create new currencies.
# you will need to read the document create_new_genisis_block.txt for more details on the subject.
# this file is also the only other document to see some of the added control values I added to Freecoin.

#AddressVerson=244

#check_block is a block to verify the integrity up to this block number used with check_hash if not set it's not checked

gennewblock=1




I then followed the instructions here:
https://github.com/sacarlson/MultiCoin/blob/master/create_new_genisis_block.txt

When I launched bitcoind program... here is what I see so far:

Bitcoin version 0.3.23-beta
Default data directory /root/.bitcoin
Bound to port 18333
Loading addresses...
dbenv.open strLogDir=/root/.bitcoin/testnet/database strErrorFile=/root/.bitcoin/testnet/db.log
Loaded 0 addresses
 addresses                96ms
Loading block index...
testnet mode active
hashGenesisBlock custom configured by -genesisblock in bitcoin.conf
hashGenesisBlock is now 000000017135cc76e65e8f292020ab2fc92e969e65c145ecf6e8510e5d7a31f5
creating new genesis block I hope
 pszTimestamp = >"14/Apr/13 Noobs have finally gained control of new Alt-Coin Creation."<
block.nTime custom configured by -block_nTime in bitcoin.conf
block.nNonce custom configured by -block_nNonce in bitcoin.conf
block.nTime = 1365952543
block.nBits = 487063544
block.nBits hex = 1d07fff8
block.nNonce = 0


I looks like it's trying to generate the genesis block!!


Now... I have to mention this is for a SHA256 derivative... and not scrypt.
Will this method work with a scrypt based branch?  Unknown at the moment.

Right now I am just trying to create 'any' genesis block and work outfrom there.
More soon!!

I will NEVER ask for any kind of funds up front in a buy/sale of anything on bitcointalk.

Try with "-debug"?

This is exactly what is supposed to happen.
Continuing with the documentation and 'starting' of a test coin!

Based on this post... I am supposed to add the following lines to the bitcoin.conf file:

block_hashMerkleRoot = 0x666c22e24d9395358ed9042332278eb35554ec53c0c1ca37cb1eb81
genesisblock = 0x000000017135cc76e65e8f292020ab2fc92e969e65c145ecf6e8510e5d7a31f
block_nTime = 1365952543
block_nNonce = 595298775


As you can see I just added 0x to the front of each number to signify this is a hex number.
Per the instructions, re-launch the compiled binary with these lines -- and wait.

Right now -- I am waiting.
I am curious to see what will happen once the process completes a second time.

Have you guys taken a look at this proposal:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=176556.0

The proposal is for Litecoin, but since you guys have a new blockchain(s) in the works, someone might want to try their hand at implementing this as a new coin.

As we are newbies, you can't possible expect us to do something like that now, do you?

Interesting ideas.
Something to look at once we get comfortable with how this process works and the codes bases (bitcoin and litecoin)!

I am playing with litecoin fork Smiley I have simple replaced some digits in hashGenesisBlock compiled and run, however when I start daemon it says main.cpp:2061: bool LoadBlockIndex(bool): Assertion `block.GetHash() == hashGenesisBlock' failed.

I think idea to beef up scrypt to make it cpu coin is fun Smiley

I think if you guys can mint a genesis block, you can probably figure that proposal out as well!
