Ercoin 0.1.0

Posted on March 28, 2019

Ercoin 0.1.0 has been released. The test network is scheduled to launch at 6 P.M. UTC on Friday, 29 March.

As the version number suggests, this is not a stable release, which means that we are not in production yet. The process of achieving version 1.0 and starting the main network will consist of several areas of activity, including:

  • finding bugs on the test network and improving the code;
  • working towards adoption by exchanges;
  • improving documentation;
  • marketing.

When a satisfactory level in these areas is achieved, it is planned to announce Initial Burn Offering (IBO) — initial set of ercoins is going to be distributed proportionally to the amount of blackcoins burnt in some time window.

Update (29 March):

Version 0.1.1 has been released which updates the entropy library. Launch of the test network will happen using a newly-generated genesis data which uses real entropy instead of the dummy one.
