I learned incidentally that making an altcoin is easier than people think it is, and decided "You know what the world needs? More useless cryptocurrencies!"
What it does
Makes more cryptocurrencies.
How I built it
Made a new cryptocurrency. Then made a script to make cryptocurrencies.
Challenges I ran into
Mining a genesis block takes a very long time, and often fails for no reason.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Made 3 cryptocurrencies over the course of development.
What I learned
Mining crypto in a VM is the worst idea ever.
Also, what the difference between a wallet and a public key is.
What's next for CoinCoin
More reliability. Also generate a readme and logo.
Also, we need to integrate it with the blockchain somehow.
