Why Tidecoin?

Tidecoin is an upgrade of Bitcoin by replacing ecdsa cryptography signature algorithm with Post-Quantum security ones. The cryptography used by Tidecoin is falcon-512 which is one of NIST(National Institute of Standards and Technology)'s finalists for Post-Quantum security standards. This will make Tidecoin to keep on ensuring its security characteristics even faced with quantum computers.

Introduction

Every one can use a personal computer to mine Tidecoin. Even possable use mobile devices for mining, as the powerful soc is popular. Just download the wallet and enter a command to mine. The PoW algorithm Tidecoin use is yespower. This algorithm in particular is designed to be CPU-friendly, GPU-unfriendly.

Currently the wallet spports windows and linux version. When the wallet is open, it will connect to the network and synchronize with the latest block.

Mining with full node

Before mining, use getnewaddress command to get a new Tidecoin address. Then use generatetoaddress to start mining. example:

  • getnewaddress "mywallet", will return something like:
  • TXH4f22sfdM7Udert3tvJHPqWpkNp5datA

    then use followings to mine blocks.

  • generatetoaddress 1 TXH4f22sfdM7Udert3tvJHPqWpkNp5datA 100000
  • Mining with pool

    Download mining software:

    cpuminer(linux version )

    cpuminer(windows version )

    Then run:

    cpuminer -a yespower -o stratum+tcp://185.207.207.168:3008 -u TXH4f22sfdM7Udert3tvJHPqWpkNp5datA
