1. Cryptocurrency and Blockchain – Vision

Creating a new cryptocurrency is like launching a startup; it requires vision and planning. To craft your coin’s purpose, think about the problems it will solve and how it benefits people. For example, if you aim to combat environmental pollution through tree planting, your coin can represent tree ownership, and fruit proceeds go to coin owners. When people want to sell a tree, they sell the coin. Prior to coin development, understand blockchain basics, and pay attention to calculations, hardware, and coin components. Explore these concepts further through optional videos. Your vision is the foundation for building your mineable cryptocurrency.

2. Plan Your Cryptocurrency

Once you have a clear vision for your cryptocurrency, it’s time to create a plan. Planning your cryptocurrency means deciding how it will work. Think about Bitcoin, for instance. It has specific rules like a maximum of 21 million coins, mining rewards, halving every 4 years, and its symbol, BTC. Similarly, Litecoin and Ethereum have their own rules. Just like these coins, you’ll need to figure out the rules and details for your cryptocurrency. This plan will include things like how many coins there will be, how people can earn them, and what your cryptocurrency will be called.

The parameters you must consider when developing your mineable coin are listed below.

  1. Name of Coin
  2. Symbol of Coin
  3. Public Address of Cryptocurrency Starting Letter
  4. Max coins of your own Cryptocurrency
  5. Mining Rewards to the miner of your coin
  6. Halving Intervals
  7. Block Interval Time
  8. Pre-Mined Percentage of Cryptocurrency for Founders

3. Taking care of Source Code

Blockchain is like a computer program, and it comes with its own code. The cool thing is that many blockchain platforms, like Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, and others, share their code on a website called GitHub. You can think of it as a big library for computer code.

When you want to make your own mineable cryptocurrency, you have to decide what kind of computer code it will use. For example, Bitcoin uses a code called SHA256, and Litecoin uses one called Scrypt.

Instead of creating all the code from scratch, it’s often smarter and faster to take the code from GitHub and change it to make your own cryptocurrency. It’s a bit like using a recipe to make a delicious meal but adding your own special ingredients to make it unique. You can get the code and resources you need from a specific website to help you create your cryptocurrency.

4. Generating Genesis Block of your mineable cryptocurrency

Every Blockchain Application’s genesis block is the first blockchain. And your cryptocurrency is nothing more than a blockchain app.

When creating the Genesis block for Bitcoin, we must generate three Genesis blocks.

There are three Genesis Blocks.

  1. Main Net
  2. Test Net
  3. Net Regression Test

These three genesis blocks can be created with C++ source code. You can also use an existing Python script to build this genesis block.

However, constructing the above three Genesis blocks in C++ and Python script may take a significant amount of time and resources. We designed a little web application to simplify the process of constructing three genesis blocks.

Please use this URL to visit this web application and produce a Genesis block for your Mineable Cryptocurrency.

5. Coding – How to create a Mineable Cryptocurrency

Coding is a tricky part of making your own mineable cryptocurrency. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Get the Base Code: First, you need to get the starting code from Litecoin or Bitcoin. Think of this code as the foundation of your cryptocurrency project.
  2. Modify the Code: Next, you have to change this code to make it your own. You’ll give your coin a unique name, a symbol, decide how many coins there will be, and make some other important updates. This makes your coin different from others.
  3. Replace Litecoin or Bitcoin: You’ll replace the old coin’s name (Litecoin or Bitcoin) with the name of your cryptocurrency, so it’s all about your new coin.

I can’t explain every single detail here, but there’s a course on Udemy that can help you with all the steps to create your own cryptocurrency. It’s like a guide that walks you through the process step by step.

6. Building your own Cryptocurrency

Creating your own mineable cryptocurrency involves a few technical steps. First, you compile the coin using a program called a C++ compiler. Then, you make a special file that can run on computers using Windows or Linux.

To do this, you need to install some necessary tools on your computer. After that, you follow a set of specific commands. These commands are pretty much the same for Bitcoin and Litecoin.

You can find all the commands you need to create your cryptocurrency on a website link.

But before you get started, it’s crucial to set up your computer as a Linux server or use a Linux computer. This is important for the process to work correctly. It’s like preparing the kitchen before you start cooking a meal.

Setting up the server for creating the Cryptocurrency

To create and run a mineable cryptocurrency, it’s best to use a special type of computer called an Ubuntu server, specifically Ubuntu 18.04. You can think of this server as a workspace where you build and run your cryptocurrency.

You can get an Ubuntu server from places like Amazon AWS, Google Cloud, or Digital Ocean. Setting up the server might be a bit tricky at first, but once it’s ready, the process of building your coin becomes much faster and easier.

To work on your server, you can use tools like WinSCP and Putty. These tools help you connect to your server and do your cryptocurrency work.

If you want a step-by-step guide on how to set up servers on AWS, Google Cloud, and Digital Ocean, as well as how to use WinSCP and Putty, you can check out the URL for more details. It’s like having a manual to guide you through the process.

7. Cryptocurrency Explorer

You’ve put in a lot of effort: you’ve modified the cryptocurrency code, set up a server, and built your coin. Now, it’s time to create a cryptocurrency explorer.

Think of the explorer as the friendly face of your cryptocurrency. It’s like a tool that shows all the transactions to the public, and it tells everyone how certain those transactions are. This makes your cryptocurrency more transparent and trustworthy.

To set up a cryptocurrency explorer, you need a computer program called Node.js and some special parts that work with Node.js. You can find different explorers for different cryptocurrencies and methods on a website called GitHub.

No matter which explorer you choose, you’ll need Node.js and another program called MongoDB to make it run. These tools help your explorer do its job.

8. Mining and Mining Pool of your Own Cryptocurrency

In creating a mineable cryptocurrency, mining plays a vital role. As your cryptocurrency grows, the process becomes more challenging with each new block. The increased challenge means you need more computing power to mine new coins.

That’s where setting up a mining pool comes in handy. It’s like sending out invitations to miners. They join your pool to work together, using their combined computing power to mine coins more efficiently. Think of it as teamwork that helps you keep your cryptocurrency running smoothly.

There are two type of mining in cryptocurrency world.

  1. Solo mining
  2. Mining Pool

Solo Mining: Solo mining is like going on a treasure hunt by yourself. It’s good when a new cryptocurrency is just starting, and not many people are mining it yet. Or, you might have super-powerful hardware that’s great at finding coins on its own. When you solo mine, your mining hardware connects directly to the cryptocurrency’s system.

Mining Pool: Mining pool is teamwork. When lots of miners join together, it’s like a group treasure hunt. This is helpful when the cryptocurrency is tough to mine because many miners work together, making it easier to find coins. When a coin is found, everyone in the pool gets a share of the reward based on how much work they did.

Cryptocurrency Mining Client: No matter if you’re solo mining or in a pool, you’ll need a special tool called a mining client. It’s like a magic wand that helps you find coins. You can use a GPU miner or CPU miner, depending on your hardware. There are different mining clients for different jobs. The video will show you how to set up a simple CPU miner for mineable cryptocurrencies. It’s like having the right tool for your treasure hunt!

9. Cryptocurrency Desktop Wallet

Cryptocurrencies are usually made to work with a kind of computer system called Linux. There are special tools called “daemon” and “cli” that let you do different things with the cryptocurrency, like making a new address, checking how much you have, and sending coins to others. But not everyone has a Linux computer.

So, to make it easier for everyone, there’s something called a desktop wallet. It’s like a simple program you can put on your regular computer. With a desktop wallet, you don’t have to type in tricky commands. You can do things like receive money, send money, or make new addresses just by clicking your mouse. It’s a user-friendly way to deal with cryptocurrency.

Building Desktop Wallet for Your Mineable Cryptocurrency

To build a desktop wallet for mine-able cryptocurrency, cross-compiling is required.

Cross-compiling means creating an exe for windows application in the Linux environment.

Below are commands to build desktop wallet for mine-able cryptocurrency

#installing pre requisite
sudo apt install build-essential libtool autotools-dev automake pkg-config bsdmainutils curl git
#installing gc++ compiler
sudo apt install g++-mingw-w64-x86-64
#configuring the posfix
sudo update-alternatives --config x86_64-w64-mingw32-g++

After following the above step please run the bash file to create your desktop wallet. This process is long and may take 50-80 minutes depending upon the server configuration.

Bash file can be downloaded from this URL: Bash File to Create Desktop wallet

Above Bash file contains all the commands to create your desktop wallet for your own mine-able cryptocurrency.

10. Coin API

Most people use mobile phones and the internet. While desktop wallets are useful, they come with their own risks like computer problems or damage.

To reduce the risk of losing your coins due to computer issues, we have mobile and web wallets. These are like apps or websites that make it easy to use your cryptocurrency. You can even exchange coins easily.

Mobile and web wallets rely on something called a “Coin API” to work. Think of it as a special language that helps your wallet understand the cryptocurrency.

To make all of this happen, we need a “business layer” created by computer experts using languages like PHP, NodeJs, Java, or .Net. This layer connects the mobile and web wallets to the Coin API. The wallets act like friendly faces that you use to work with your cryptocurrency.

Mobile and Web Wallet should have the following minimum basic features to make it Usable.

  1. User can create a new address
  2. Cryptocurrency can be transferred from one address to another address.
  3. Display balance available in all the addresses owned by User
  4. At least a basic authentication system to validate the user.
  5. Option to restore the wallet address from the key phrases if any.
