DigitalCoin (DGC) Multi-algorithm, Improved Blockchain Storage

DigitalCoin (DGC)




Digitalcoin (DGC) is an established cryptographic currency with a transparent history. The Digitalcoin Developer Network and its committed team ensures network stability and health through evolving policies, best practices and open-ended testing. To date, DGC remains one of the most fair, and well distributed forks of the original Bitcoin software.

Digitalcoin is an open-source cryptocurrency focused on transparency and reliability. No pre-mine or insta-mine, and block rewards are scaled over the next decades to help foster an honest economy. A dedicated development provides client maintenance to ensure future relevance.

Founded in 2013Digitalcoin is a proven method of transferring value with transaction confirmations in less than a minute.

With Scrypt, Sha256, and x11 algorithms available for mining, DGC can maximize hash power from the most powerful hardware available.

Network Parameters
• No pre-mine or ICO. Started with ascending rewards to make early mining fair.
• Algorithm – Blocks are hashed using Scrypt, x11, or SHA256 algorithms.
• Confirmations – Confirmations average 40 seconds.
• Difficulty – Re-targets every block.
• Mining Reward – 5 per block found. Rewards halve every three years.
• Maximum coins – The total supply of Digitalcoin will be approximately 48,166,000.

Network Enhancements
• Algorithm Control – If the last three blocks were discovered by the same algorithm, the fourth block will be rejected until it’s found by one of the other two algorithms. This prevents directed attacks on the network from any single algorithm.


Digitalcoin Core v5

What is Digitalcoin?

Digitalcoin is an experimental new digital currency that enables anonymous, instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. Digitalcoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority: managing transactions and issuing money are carried out collectively by the network. Digitalcoin Core is the name of the open source software which enables the use of this currency.

For more information, as well as an immediately useable, binary version of the Digitalcoin Core software, see https://www.digitalcoin.tech.

How to build Digitacoin V5 from source on Ubuntu (16.04 is recommended, desktop or server, as you want) :

sudo apt-get install -y git

git clone https://github.com/lomtax/digitalcoin.git

cd digitalcoin

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install -y build-essential libtool autotools-dev autoconf pkg-config libssl-dev automake

sudo apt-get install -y libboost-all-dev libdb4.8-dev libdb4.8++-dev libprotobuf-dev protobuf-compiler libevent-dev libminiupnpc-dev libqrencode-dev

sudo apt-get install -y libqt5gui5 libqt5core5a libqt5dbus5 qttools5-dev qttools5-dev-tools


./configure --enable-upnp-default --with-miniupnpc

sudo make install

Development Process

The master branch is meant to be stable. Development is normally done in separate branches. Tags are created to indicate new official, stable release versions of Digitalcoin Core.

The contribution workflow is described in CONTRIBUTING.md.


Testing and code review is the bottleneck for development; we get more pull requests than we can review and test on short notice. Please be patient and help out by testing other people's pull requests, and remember this is a security-critical project where any mistake might cost people lots of money.

Automated Testing

Developers are strongly encouraged to write unit tests for new code, and to submit new unit tests for old code. Unit tests can be compiled and run (assuming they weren't disabled in configure) with: make check

There are also regression and integration tests of the RPC interface, written in Python, that are run automatically on the build server. These tests can be run (if the test dependencies are installed) with: qa/pull-tester/rpc-tests.py

The Travis CI system makes sure that every pull request is built for Windows and Linux, OS X, and that unit and sanity tests are automatically run.

Manual Quality Assurance (QA) Testing

Changes should be tested by somebody other than the developer who wrote the code. This is especially important for large or high-risk changes. It is useful to add a test plan to the pull request description if testing the changes is not straightforward.


Changes to translations as well as new translations can be submitted to Digitalcoin Core's Transifex page.

Translations are periodically pulled from Transifex and merged into the git repository. See the translation process for details on how this works.

Important: We do not accept translation changes as GitHub pull requests because the next pull from Transifex would automatically overwrite them again.

Translators should also follow the forum.
