youre not explain youre project and youre coin dev
wait about youre project and detail coin
I want to try out all the major steps for putting together and running a cryptocoin
, including developer and bug bounties, a tiny ICO
, strive for some kind of a plausible business model, pull together a community with some semblance of governance. Seems only right to get working both Windows and Linux versions of nodes, wallets, and GPU miners. Set up a mining pool and a block explorer, place the coin on exchanges and maybe even do some trading or market making. Should I even care about airdrops, faucets, dice, miner bounties?
I'm a software developer professionally, and so my first inclination was to fork a codebase and do some serious work. But for this project I want to stay away from the familiar and instead focus on things I've never done before. Learn from it, document the steps and experiences, maybe work out some tutorials. So, no original coding from me on this project, though I'll build from source and validate all the software pieces before releasing them.
As to the kind of coin I want, would rather not simply clone Bitcoin
, which I'm planning to do some work with for real. Also, skip coins that are established, but are kinda "one off" or "proprietary" in their approaches, like Monero
is totally interesting and is way too complicated for this effort.
Most of what I know about altcoins comes from listening to the Blockchain Dynamics podcast http://www.blockchaindynamics.net/
They have a forum on Cryptopia: https://www.cryptopia.co.nz/Forum/Thread/634
The hosts sneer at coins that are "another Scrypt coin or a Kryptonite clone" and chuckle at what comes out of "walletbuilder". And they praise some as "a good miner coin". Since I'm not sure what they actually mean by all that, I'll ask them.
I don't understand the whole PoS thing, unlike the Bitcoin or Ethereum PoW. And not sure I really want to learn the staking tricks at this point, even though the Ethereum crowd claims to wanna switch to PoS. What does that leave as possibilities?
