Peercoin in Go, donations accepted here.

Ppcsuite needs funding to implement Peercoin v0.5 protocol update !

ppcsuite : a peercoin port of the btcsuite tools written in Go


  • Facilitate Peercoin integration into the Open Transactions (OT) project (main goal).
  • Allow Counterparty financial platform to be easily ported to Peercoin.
  • Also facilitate Peercoin integration with other exchanges or payment processors.

Project phases (draft)

  • Having ppcd running ok (mining optional) (being tested)
  • Having ppcwallet running ok (work in progress)
  • Having minting enabled in ppcwallet (work in progress)

Advantages of Go language over C/C++

  • Integrated test infrastructure
  • Platform independent code
  • Simpler parallelism and excellent support for concurrency
  • No active memory management which leads to eliminating an entire class of the most common security vulnerabilities like buffer overflows
  • Built-in profiling and documentation facilities
  • Significantly faster compilation times
  • Standard formatting
