It seems to me that every new coin introduced, they list source code in Github. Is that customary in the industry?

  • Could you please point me to a guide on how did you create it? I have gone through the one on bitcointalk but its very outdated – Eliahu Horwitz Jul 25 '17 at 19:26

Most users are not going to trust a closed-source altcoin, so you should make its code available to the public. This board also doesn't support closed-source cryptocurrencies.

GitHub provides free hosting for open-source projects and has become a standard in the open source community so (primary opinion-based statement follows) it's probably a good idea to put your code there.
