MegaCoin (MEC)

Megacoin (MEC) is a Litecoin-based cryptocurrency that aims to provide quick and easy transfer of coins wherever you are in the world as long as there is Internet connection. … Moreover, you can instantly fill your Megacoin Wallet with free coins when you make the most of the available Megacoin Faucet.



Not minted or endorsed by any nation, but by users across the globe. Anywhere there is internet, you can send or receive Megacoins. Even in outer space. There are very little rules for Megacoin. To prevent inflation only a limited supply of 42 million Megacoins will ever exist. Megacoins are mined by users at a set rate for decades into the future. You can get Megacoins for free by mining or trading for them on an exchange.


No need for Wiring or Carrying Cash across borders. You can send Megacoin to your relatives or business partners to the other side of the world. No hoops to jump through, no questioning. Just hit send.
Unlike Banks which can require a Credit Check or Social Security Number, Megacoin doesn’t ask for anything except a smile. A Megacoin account is completely free & with low transaction fees. Transactions are complete within seconds, worldwide!
Megacoin has a class of decentralized workers called miners to keep the Paymentsystem secure. Specialized Cloud Computers run encryption software to distribute Megacoin and verify all transactions on the payment network. Megacoin is absolutely secure against forgery. Everyone can become a miner, it´s very easy to buy or rent hardware and join a miningpool.
Megacoin is open source software and released under the terms of the MIT Licence. The global network uses peer-to-peer technology and consists of dozens strategic nodes all over the world. Megacoin is global, it faces no boundaries and connects people even from the most faraway places on earth.

Megacoin Core integration/staging tree


What is Megacoin?

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

For more information, as well as an immediately useable, binary version of the Megacoin Core software, see http://www.megacoin.eu/


Megacoin Core is released under the terms of the MIT license. See COPYING for more information or see http://opensource.org/licenses/MIT.

Development process

Developers work in their own trees, then submit pull requests when they think their feature or bug fix is ready.

If it is a simple/trivial/non-controversial change, then one of the Megacoin development team members simply pulls it.

If it is a more complicated or potentially controversial change, then the patch submitter will be asked to start a discussion (if they haven't already) on the mailing list.

The patch will be accepted if there is broad consensus that it is a good thing. Developers should expect to rework and resubmit patches if the code doesn't match the project's coding conventions (see doc/coding.md) or are controversial.

The master-0.10 branch is regularly built and tested, but is not guaranteed to be completely stable. Tags are created regularly to indicate new official, stable release versions of Megacoin.


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.

Manual Quality Assurance (QA) Testing

Large changes should have a test plan, and should be tested by somebody other than the developer who wrote the code. See https://github.com/bitcoin/QA/ for how to create a test plan.


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

We only accept translation fixes that are submitted through Bitcoin Core's Transifex page. Translations are converted to Megacoin periodically.

Development tips and tricks

compiling for debugging

Run configure with the --enable-debug option, then make. Or run configure with CXXFLAGS="-g -ggdb -O0" or whatever debug flags you need.


If the code is behaving strangely, take a look in the debug.log file in the data directory; error and debugging messages are written there.

The -debug=... command-line option controls debugging; running with just -debug will turn on all categories (and give you a very large debug.log file).

The Qt code routes qDebug() output to debug.log under category "qt": run with -debug=qt to see it.

testnet and regtest modes

Run with the -testnet option to run with "play megacoins" on the test network, if you are testing multi-machine code that needs to operate across the internet.

If you are testing something that can run on one machine, run with the -regtest option. In regression test mode, blocks can be created on-demand; see qa/rpc-tests/ for tests that run in -regtest mode.


Megacoin Core is a multithreaded application, and deadlocks or other multithreading bugs can be very difficult to track down. Compiling with -DDEBUG_LOCKORDER (configure CXXFLAGS="-DDEBUG_LOCKORDER -g") inserts run-time checks to keep track of which locks are held, and adds warnings to the debug.log file if inconsistencies are detected.
