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.
