#rtcoin builds.sr.ht status Build Status codecov

tildecoin is a fun currency simulation concept being written for the tildeverse. rtcoin is the second-generation implementation, meant to improve upon the first. The specifications set forth in the draft RFC for tildecoin, written by ~aewens, will be followed:

This project is in early development. Right now, I'm focusing on rtcoin-server. I'm going to be rewriting it fairly soon, after reexamining how I want to construct this. For example, instead of a threadpool, I'll be accepting connections asynchronously, and will be listening via TCP rather than via domain socket.



If you'd like to help out, the current build dependencies are:

  • libsqlcipher-dev

If you're interested, I'm working on the development plan here: PLAN.md. I'll update this when it's finished.

rtcoin uses a client-server architecture, per the RFC.

Initial work is being done on rtcoin-server, which will handle connections to clients, client authentication, and manage the ledger as a table in a SQLite v3 database. Afterwards, work will move to rtcoin-client, which will be what users interact with to display their balances, transfer tildecoin to other users, etc.



Starting a major overhaul of the existing code very soon. Primary development will be happening at sourcehut instead of GitHub, though the repo will remain mirrored on GitHub.


Minor changes to the dev plan.
