I have managed to build an altcoin (from litecoin source) but my coin requires that I make changes to the way rewards are made. I have been looking at the source code to try to find where block reward is handled and what method does all the work. I did find this (In what line of what file does the block reward depend on?) however this looks to be old as i don't see a main.cpp file in the litecoin source.
does anyone know the modern files/methods that handle this. I already managed to follow the steps for creating my genesis block and everything looks to be working. I'm now in the phase of making changes. I would like to find the method that handles creating a block with a block reward. I will be changing how the block reward is done.
while I see
chainparams.cpp has an ability to change the reward amount. I'm looking for a way to build a new type of reward system so i will need to look at how a coin is made from nothing. My coin will not be minting coins on block creation so i need to change how that method works.
