I have some experiments I want to do for creating my own coin. I've seen stuff like coingen.io but I want to do it myself. I also will be messing with other things like the hashing algorithm. Are there any resources out there that gives a bit of guidance through this process? The best I've got so far is taking the dogecoin(or any other altcoin) first commit and comparing to the litecoin source. But this didn't produce very good results for me
I recently heard of www.coingen.io which enables to create your own crypto currency within minutes for minimum fee. (For minimum fee regarding the the you will be spending creating your own coin c. 50 USD)
I would like also to inform you that if you are seeing any investment/profit potential that we already have more than 100 so called altcoins which are all almost the same with minumum differences.
If you are a bit programming skilled the complete guide is on bitcointalk forum.

It's worth mentioning for anyone who isn't aware that the Bitcoin client at https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin is open source and available for download for those who wish to create their own cryptocurrency, subject of course to the conditions of the license.
You can create your own digital coin with www.bitclone.net platform. I have recently launched this project and currently looking for people to try it.
Try cryptonotestarter.org. If you are not familiar with CryptoNote platform, it allows for creation of completely anonymous cryptocurrencies (not Bitcoin forks). So far there are about 10 cryptocoins that were created with this technology. Bytecoin (BCN) was the first one launched in 2012 with a few forks spinning off within last two years. CryptoNoteStarter is a useful tool if you want to create your own CryptoNote-based coin. The interface is pretty simple, it looks like step-by-step guide that walks you through the stages of development.
