HowTo maxcoin.conf

The maxcoin.conf should have the following

# Run on the test network instead of the real maxcoin network.
testnet=1
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
# Listen for RPC connections on this TCP port.
rpcport=8080
# Mining is initially enabled.
gen=1

Verify connected peers

curl --user maxcoinrpc --data-binary '{"jsonrpc": "1.0", "id": "curltest", "method": "getpeerinfo", "params": []}' -H 'content-type: text/plain;' http://127.0.0.1:8080/

ToDo / Future Development

Build a Maxcoin a Testnet (Option 1).

  1. Clone the maxcoin01-testnet and maxcoin02-testnet
  2. Build the Testnet genesis block, also set it to run only testnet [1]
  3. Verify it connects the peers also with the public dnsseed.decentralizeduser.com(must suport main and testnet)
  4. Enable mining on bouth nodes
  5. Enable the block explorer
  6. Create a faucet site?

Fork the bitcoin-testnet-box (Option 2)

Another way to work with maxcoin development and testing is to create a fork of the bitcoin-testnet-box

Extra Info

It seems that teh code includes an already generated genesis block:

We might consider rebuild another genesis block and update this lines at the code, plus adding also the dnsseed and/or some nodes -p1r0
