A new proud member of the Blake 256 Ecosystem ---NO PREMINE ---- SPECIAL FAIR LAUNCH ---
THE FIRST TWO THOUSAND BLOCKS PAY LESS THAN 1/2 OF ONE COIN TO RAMP UP MINING !!!!
Lithium is forked from Bitcoin reference wallet 0.8.5 more specific-- from Blake Coin + Photon
Lithium is in part based from Photon the first Blake 256 merge mined coin.
Blake-256(optimized) faster than scrypt and faster than sha256 in C (asm is still faster for sha256d)
The algorithm was written as a candidate for sha3, Based on round one candidate code from the sphlib 2.1 and
reduced the compression function to 8.
Tweaks Removed some of the double hashing from the wallet as it is wasteful on compute,
No changes to the ecdsa public/private function as that has proven to be secure so far on bitcoin.
What is Lithium ?
A Blake 256 coin based on Photon but with smaller block awards that will decrease over time.
The Max Lithium to be produced are 25,228,800
The block time is 3 minutes and difficulty can retarget a maximium of 10% every 20 blocks
(5% max until block3500) 48 Lithium are awarded for each block (NOTE -- BLOCKS 1 THROUGH 1999 AWARD ONLY .48 LITHIUM)
In about 1 year from launch time the award will reduce to 24 Lithium
This reduction will cut in half each year until all Lithium have been produced.
After year five instead of cutting in half from 1.5 to .75 the award changes to 1 LIT per block.
Ubuntu 12.04 dependancies that are used on the Linux build machine:

No .conf file should be necessary to get started: The client will connect to the network when startedMining is available through the public merged pools

If you are currently registered to mine other blake 256 coins you only need to add Lithium to your account
If you are new to the blake 256 merge mining eco system it currently allows the mining of seven coins at one time
with the same hash power. Each coin is a bit different and there are exact details on the links below to the
pools operated for merged mining. (Note, this is not switching coins --- you mine all at the same time)
Chiguireitor's Anon Merge Pool http://nomp.universalmolecule.co.ve/
BlueDragon747's EU Merged Mining Pool http://eu3.blakecoin.com/
BlueDragon747's New York Merged Mining Pool http://ny2.blakecoin.com/
BlueDragon747's Los Angeles Merged Mining Pool http://la1.blakecoin.com/
BlueDragon747's Chicago Merged Mining Pool http://cg1.blakecoin.com/
Additional Technical Details more nodes if necessary
If you want to solo mine vs. merge mine all 7 coins you must set your rpc port to 8984 (not advised)
