Dear new/old/or soon to be coin developer,

After about ~70 days of running bittrex.com and being the wallet master (or is it bitch?), I have learned a lot of things from coin developers.  Some are responsible and awesome;  they don't mind educating or helping out even when its not their coin.  Others... are unresponsive and dismissive at best;  but I digress.  What I have learned though is you can do 8 simple things to make your service providers (pool/exchanges) lives a LOT easier.  So without further ado (and really in no particular order)...

1. Do NOT name your coin to something that already exists.  Limecoin, Bitcointalkcoin, Panda, Imperial... I'm looking at you guys.  The dictionary has a lot of other options.
2. Do NOT use a symbol that already exists!  Do your research.  (how many BCC coins are there?)
3. DO have an up-to-date github.  No I will not download your tar.gz off mega-new-files-share.com.
4. DO include exchange/pool friendly options and make sure they WORK!  Respect staking=0 or gen=0 or whatever it is so that your PoS coin doesn't suck up all the resources.
5. DO have an IRC channel.  Most of us service provider types can tell you somethings wrong with your coin before anyone else.
6. DO actually have dev skills; or know someone that does.  Most problems are fixable.
7. DO have an official blockexplorer, and make sure its up to date.
8. DO keep your nodes updated and alive.

For the most part, we are here to provide a service to the community where needed... So... Make our lives easier so we can do more for you! Smiley

Thanks for listening Wink
