Eggcoin - a cryptocurrency! Mine coins, and make transactions!

Profile icon
generationXcode

This is a cryptocurrency. Fork the code and follow the readme :

When first using this software you MUST:

  • delete blockchain.json in the root directory
  • go to personal_data.json and change details accordingly
  • run program once, after the terminal says Quit server with CONTROL C, click on the stop button and run once again.
  • if you dont do the above steps, your peer will not be added to the network and your coins won't be recognised by everyone.

what is a cryptocurrency?

  • honestly, I have like no clue. It is a bunch of coins that you give to someone else. It is like actual currency, except you dont need a bank or anything to make transactions. Think of cryptocurrency like digital cash (not the number on bank screen, actual physical notes and stuff).
  • Lets say you want to buy some eggs. You go to the store and give them some cash. The cashier checks whether the notes you give him/her are fake or real. If they are real, the transaction is accepted and you get the eggs.
  • wait no. that isnt what a cryptocurrency is. I forgot what I was typing out. A better analogy would be if you want some eggs, you give the cash to the cashier, everyone alive gets a copy of that note, everyone alive checks whether that note is real or fake. If the majority think it is real, you get the eggs. Now this note giving is a "transaction". To protect these transactions from being tampered with, we have blocks to keep these transactions in. Each time you mine a block, you do some work to secure it (this is called mining). If someone else wanted to tamper with a transaction in that block, they would have to do the work again, and since all the blocks after it are linked to that block, the person would then have to redo the work for every single block after that.

how do i mine?

  • just follow the instructions I gave at the top and run the program, open the link and click on the mine link. The mining can take very long.

how do I make a transaction?

  • click on the make transaction link and you will be greeted by a form. ask your friend for their public key. They will give you two parts of the key. Place the long part in the first public key input and the short part in the second. In the amount section, place a whole number of coins you want to give the person.

how do i find my public key?

  • bruh. Just click on the link to get it.

other stuff

  • you guys tell me what to write here

stop

spam

mining

If you all are having issues with forking, please contact me, I'll fix it all for you.

troubleshooting

  • issue solution number 1 - anything isnt working? just stop the repl and restart
  • if it takes too long to start, it is because there are too many peers. easy fix - delete all peers except eggcoin.generationxcode.repl.co in peers.json. Easier fix, contact me and add me to the multiplayer repl
  • if it says lol die, it is completely normal

announcements

  • if u want version 2, please say so.
  • I am sorry for the bad styling
  • want me to explain in depth how to make a cryptocurrency?
  • I made the difficulty low, so it uses less resources and no actual money stuffs here pls
  • can you all try not to mess with it?
  • if you find the server randomly crashing, it's me. You all do all sorts of stuff to mess it up, i have to try and fix the code. This is the result of that salvaging
  • I'm sleeping now, so any errors ocurring are all your fault and i'll fix them when i get up. Not that the system is perfectly working without all your mixing in it
  • if you have ideas about design in css or anything, contribute PLEASE https://github.com/generationzcode/socoolblockchain
  • if you want to run this and use my coins and play around with my node, use this link - https://replit.com/@generationXcode/Eggcoin
    I want to see the run metrics
  • https://replit.com/talk/learn/How-I-made-a-cryptocurrency-Eggcoin-and-how-you-can-part-1/140217 is the tutorial where you can learn more about how to make a blockchain.
  • ok version 2 wont have any protocol changes, I would have to force everyone to follow them, I'll make a few more pages to show the blockchain and mining process and then I'm done with the project, unless a security issue occurs.
  • great job guys, now we have too many peers. the program is running real slow. I'll update the protocols later.
  • btw keep a backup of your keys from keys.json. If the keys reset (ur balance becomes 0, u can paste the old keys back
  • great job whoever you are for RUINING the blockchain
  • large issue guys. Our cryptocurrency servers dont have enough memory to handle really large files so we need a solution for this fast. The coin will otherwise fail. Log your answers in comments section mine is ijson
  • i will fix this after im done with my physics practice paper. Then I will fix the network
  • high probability of blockchain not working. currently trying to make version 2, that is better than this one. use, but it might not work.
  • you people have spent all my eggcoin. try to mine some.
  • I am rich. make me richer by mining for me

I have fixed this to a point at which it is usable. Please have fun. If you run into any errors, dont hesitate to make issues on github like many are right now and CONTRIBUTE. GUYS YOU HAVE TO CONTRIBUTE

  • @Peiprjs
    @7ih
    @kudoslin
    thanks for contributing to this project

if you operate a node, please keep pulling from the version control.

20 comments that i should remake it and i will. It will be better then. This was my first ever blockchain so it isnt very good.

version 2 was made and u all got to see it. there was a small problem however, that has been fixed. Please go on and spend all your money for stupid things now

Oh, that's actually interesting. I decided to get into the crypto field not so long ago, it's been about a year, and this Cryptocurrency software development company helps me develop a crypto project that I've been thinking about for a while. I have high hopes for it, and I'm sure it'll turn out to be profitable for me.

crypto mining is against the Replit Tos

@programmeruser
I'm pretty sure that only applies to like, mining Bitcoin and stuff on Replit machines.

@Whippingdot
. even uses vsCode when atom.io is clearly superior.

Profile icon
Whippingdot

no atom.io is worse cause it has a smaller community, meaning less extensions. Also you can't customize the top bar in atom meaning you are stuck with the white menu of all the options (I am talking about how electron puts that bar at the top on windows). In VSCode you can move that bar around. VSCode is clearly [email protected]

It is? I didn't know, and where does it say that? Just wondering.

I don't want to get super involved on this conversations, but atom.io is amazing.

I am just now trying to make a rate prediction map for eggcoin and as I see it is quite promising cryptocurrency. As a trader I try it in addition to the usual bitcoin, recently I read here https://cryptoboarding.com/ an article for beginners traders and learned a lot even for myself, though I have a lot of experience. Because this market moves too fast and you constantly need to learn something new for yourself.

@TimothyChris
Hi timothy. I actually made this for educational purposes only. I appreciate the enthusiasm but eggcoin was my first ever cryptocurrency. Its poorly designed, not scaled and buggy. I wouldnt recommend spending any time figuring it out for monetary benefit or the hope it'll get popular. I assure you, it will not. Thank you for the comment!
