So ive forked the code but seems to be connected to the old coin stuff.

What I am looking to do is fork their code and create my own coin! I know that I need to make a node but I can't find any process that shows me how to create my own coin.

Please help

  • I remember reading something about this a while ago (for a different altcoin), and it said you need at least 2 nodes configured to communicate with each other. Maybe that helps? It may differ depending on which altcoin codebase you start with though. Oct 31, 2017 at 19:57
  • Yes that def pointed me into the right direction! Anyone know how to setup checkpoint to send a certain amount of the moneysupply to certain addresses as soon as I run the node? Nov 1, 2017 at 13:57

you may want to disable dns seeds

use connect=<ip_of_other_node>

instead addnode=<ip_of_other_node> in you coin.conf file.

  • did you manage to get it working ?
