Dashcoin (DSH) is a cryptocurrency started on July 5, 2014. Dashcoin is a fork of Bytecoin and uses the unique algorithm CryptoNight. Our goal with Dashcoin is to create a perfect mirror image of Bytecoin, the first CryptoNote based cryptocurrency, at any given moment of time. Automatically.

Specifications

Algorithm: CryptoNight
Block time: 120 seconds (2 minutes)
Difficulty retargets each block
Block reward decreases each block according to the formula: BaseReward = (MSupply - A)/218, where MSupply = (264 - 1) atomic units and 'A' is amount of already generated coins
One coin is divisible down to 8 decimal places (divisible up to 108)
Total coins: 18 446 744 073 709 551 616 atomic units (= 184.46 billion DSH)



Coin Information

True anonymity & data protection
Untraceable payments use ring signature
Unlinkable transactions with random data by the sender
Blockchain analysis resistant
Only CPU-mining & ASIC-resistant
POW mechanism is a voting system for users


Why mirror image is better than self sustained fork?
The reason is simple - costs. Self sustained forks demand a lot of development time, if you want to build a well maintained cryptocurrency. And if the network grows, the required development time is likely to grow too.
A simpler, and less costly way to maintain a network with high reliability is to create a self mutating copy of it. Mutating copy is a simple copy of the original source, mutating every time the original source mutates.

Even more - such a process can be automated!

Current level of automation:

Source code


What you should expect in near future:


Automatically generated and uploaded binaries for Windows
Automatically generated and uploaded binaries for Mac OS X
Automatically generated and uploaded binaries for Linux
Automatically updated documentation


Targeted synchronization with the latest Bytecoin code and binaries - 1 hour.

Hello and thank you for submitting Dashcoin.

It is an interesting idea that you propose. However, we're unsure whether automatic mutation is viable in case of substantial updates that could require manual review. What if one of the Bytecoin updates leaves Dashcoin non-workable?

What are your plans for Dashcoin?

We plan to build it all around tests. If a test fails it will require manual review. The source code change is the absolute minimum to avoid unexpected problems caused by unnecessary complexity.
