Are Cryptocurrency Simulators Allowed?
AmazingMech2418 (1102)

So, I came up with an idea recently of basically a cryptocurrency simulator, but I'm not sure if it would be allowed on

I know blockchain on would get kind of tricky with size limits, but I think it still should be possible, but the initial version likely wouldn't have these because of the size limits and I might later try to make a blockchain version...

However, I wasn't exactly sure if it was allowed to have a virtual currency made for experimentation purposes on The entire goal is to simulate an anarcho-capitalist economy on for experimentation, but this would require transactions to be made, including paying in the cryptocurrency for code help for example. Of course the cryptocurrency would not correlate to actual dollar amounts, but I'm still not sure if this is technically allowed.

So, would this be allowed?

If your app isnt cryptomining, and if you are only using this for testing purposes I think it should be fine. (Note any sort of cryptomining isnt allowed)

@novaflippers It would allow a form of mining within the cryptocurrency, but no real currency with any dollar amount would be mined or incorporated into the system.

@AmazingMech2418 as long as it keeps resources low, you and replit should have a great time

@Coder100 Okay. Thank you! :D To help conserve resources, I'll probably instead of switching completely to blockchain, just have a separate blockchain version for other testing purposes (such as the cybersecurity of blockchain).

No, this should be strictly denied by Replit's rules and CoC, regardless of whether or not the cryptocurrency is virtual or not, or if it is worth real human currency or not.

Just give up and kill the project before it's too late. /s
