NewEnglandcoin is a clone of Bitcoin using scrypt as a proof-of-work algorithm with enhanced features to protect against 51% attack and decentralize on mining to allow diversified mining rigs across CPUs, GPUs, ASICs and Android phones.
Mining Algorithm: Scrypt with RandomSpike. RandomSpike is 3rd generation of Dynamic Difficulty (DynDiff) algorithm on top of scrypt.
1 minute block targets base difficulty reset: every 1440 blocks subsidy halves in 2.1m blocks (~ 2 to 4 years) 84,000,000,000 total maximum NENG 20000 NENG per block Pre-mine: 1% - reserved for dev fund ICO: None RPCPort: 6376 Port: 6377
NewEnglandcoin has dogecoin like supply at 84 billion maximum NENG. This huge supply insures that NENG is suitable for retail transactions and daily use. The inflation schedule of NengEnglandcoin is actually identical to that of Litecoin. Bitcoin and Litecoin are already proven to be great long term store of value. The Litecoin-like NENG inflation schedule will make NewEnglandcoin ideal for long term investment appreciation as the supply is limited and capped at a fixed number Bitcoin Fork - Suitable for Home Hobbyists
NewEnglandcoin core wallet continues to maintain version tag of "Satoshi v0.8.7.5" because NewEnglandcoin is very much an exact clone of bitcoin plus some mining feature changes with DynDiff algorithm. NewEnglandcoin is very suitable as lite version of bitcoin for educational purpose on desktop mining, full node running and bitcoin programming using bitcoin-json APIs.
The NewEnglandcoin (NENG) mining algorithm original upgrade ideas were mainly designed for decentralization of mining rigs on scrypt, which is same algo as litecoin/dogecoin. The way it is going now is that NENG is very suitable for bitcoin/litecoin/dogecoin hobbyists who can not , will not spend huge money to run noisy ASIC/GPU mining equipments, but still want to mine NENG at home with quiet simple CPU/GPU or with a cheap ASIC like FutureBit Moonlander 2 USB or Apollo pod on solo mining setup to obtain very decent profitable results. NENG allows bitcoin litecoin hobbyists to experience full node running, solo mining, CPU/GPU/ASIC for a fun experience at home at cheap cost without breaking bank on equipment or electricity.

Because of dynamic difficulty algorithm on top of scrypt, NewEnglandcoin is CPU Minable. Users can easily set up full node for mining at Home PC or Mac using our dedicated cheetah software.
Research on the first forked 50 blocks on v1.2.0 core confirmed that ASIC/GPU miners mined 66% of 50 blocks, CPU miners mined the remaining 34%.
NENG v1.4.0 release enabled CPU mining inside android phones. Youtube Video Tutorial

NewEnglandcoin is a decentralized coin just like bitcoin. There is no boss on NewEnglandcoin. Nobody nor the dev owns NENG.
We know a coin is worth nothing if there is no backing from community. Therefore, we as dev do not intend to make decision on this coin solely by ourselves. It is our expectation that NewEnglandcoin community will make majority of decisions on direction of this coin from now on. We as dev merely view our-self as coin creater and technical support of this coin while providing NENG a permanent home at ShorelineCrypto Exchange. Twitter Airdrop

Due to DynDiff Algo on top of Scrypt, solo mining is recommended for ASIC/GPU miners. Further more, even for mining pools, small mining pool will generate better performance than big NENG mining pool because of new algo v1.2.x post hard fork.
The set up configuration of NENG for scrypt pool mining is same as a typical normal scrypt coin. In other word, DynDiff on Scrypt algo is backward compatible with Scrypt algo. Because ASIC/GPU miners rely on CPU miners for smooth blockchain movement, checkout bottom of "Latest News" section for A WARNING to All ASIC miners before you decide to dump big ASIC hash rate into NENG mining.
(1) Original DynDiff Warning: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5027091.msg48324708#msg48324708
(2) New Warning on RandomSpike Spike difficulty (244k) introduced in RandomSpike served as roadblocks to instant mining and provide security against 51% attack risk. However, this spike difficulty like a roadblock that makes big ASIC mining less profitable. In case of spike block to be mined, the spike difficulty immediately serve as base difficulty, which will block GPU/ASIC miners effectively and leave CPU cheetah solo miners dominating mining almost 100% until next base difficulty reset.

Disclosure: Dev Team Came from ShorelineCrypto, a US based Informatics Service Business offering Fee for service for Coin Creation, Coin Exchange Listing, Blockchain Consulting, etc.
This thread is an update to my first Reddcoin staking tutorial
that was written 7 months ago. The reason for the update
My Reddcoin Core software crashed and became unusable. My Raspberry Pi 3B would lag and freeze, I couldn't stake anymore.
Instead of just redoing everything the same way, I wanted to see if I could improve on 3 points:
- Use an OS that was lighter
- Update the Reddcoin Core software (220.127.116.11 => 18.104.22.168)
- Make improvements to the configuration.
If you would like to tip me
- OS: using Lubuntu instead of Ubuntu MATE. Lubuntu uses less resources (130 MB RAM vs. 190 MB RAM on initial boot).
- Reddcoin Core: v22.214.171.124-a8767ba-beta instead of v126.96.36.199-92768f9-beta.
- Swap: using a swap partiton instead of a swap file. Also adjusting the swap size: from 1 GB to 2 GB, after reading the comments to my previous tutorial.
- All data to USB: Blockchain data and the swap are now stored on the USB drive, instead of the SD card.
- Private keys: added instructions on how to backup the private keys of your Reddcoin addresses!
Writing a tutorial like this takes time and effort; tips are appreciated. My Reddcoin address: RqvdnNX5MTam855Y2Vudv7yVgtXdcYaQAW
- Hardware: Raspberry Pi 3 Model B.
- OS: Lubuntu 16.04.2 (Xenial).
- Storage space: I am using an 8 GB microSD card for the OS, and a 128 GB USB drive for data. Minimums I would recommend: 8GB SD card and 32 GB USB drive.
- Reddcoin Core client version: v188.8.131.52-a8767ba-beta (most recent version at this moment). ↳ Screenshot
- You need software to write the OS to the SD card. I use Etcher. Download Etcher: https://etcher.io/.
- Run Etcher.
- Select image: select the lubuntu-16.04.2-desktop-armhf-raspberry-pi.img.xz file.
- Select drive: select your microSD card.
- Plug the SD card into your Raspberry Pi and power it up.
- Lubuntu should boot up.
- Set up Lubuntu, connect to the internet (wired or wireless). ↳ As username, I chose "rpi3b". You will see this username throughout this whole tutorial.
- Make sure date and time are correct ([Menu] > System Tools > Time and Date). ↳ Click on Unlock to make changes. I personally change Configuration to "Keep synchronized with Internet servers". ↳ Screenshot
- Reboot ([Menu] > Logout > Reboot). I am connected to wifi, but have issues getting wifi to work on initial boot. A reboot solves this issue.
- Make sure system is up-to-date, install never versions.
- Open LXTerminal ([Menu] > System Tools > LXTerminal). ↳ Screenshot
- Enter the following in LXTerminal: sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade ↳ Screenshot
- You will be asked if you really want to continue. Enter Y (yes).
- Updates are being installed! Wait until it's finished.
- Install programs that will be used in this tutorial.
- GParted: to partition the USB drive.
- Htop: to see the amount of memory (RAM) and swap that is in use.
- Enter the following in LXTerminal to install these 2 programs. sudo apt install gparted && sudo apt install htop ↳ Screenshot
- Create 2 partitions on the USB drive: 1) Swap partition 2) data partition (for the Reddcoin blockchain) The swap partition is necessary: The Reddcoin wallet can be memory intensive. To prevent any crashes or freezes, add 2 GB of 'virtual' memory by creating a swap partition.
- Important: Backup your USB drive if needed. The USB drive will be formatted, so the data on the USB drive will be wiped.
- Please use the USB drive solely for this purpose, do not combine it with other stuff.
- Keep your USB drive plugged in, do not (randomly) plug it out.
- Plug your USB drive in.
- GParted will be used to create the partititons. Start GParted via LXTerminal: sudo gparted ↳ Screenshot
- In GParted, switch from your SD card (default) to your USB drive. ↳ Screenshot ↳ Screenshot
- You will now see the all the partition on USB drive. Delete every partition (right mouse click). If you can't select Delete, do an Unmount first. ↳ Screenshot ↳ Screenshot
- After deleting all partition, you will only see 'unallocated' space on your USB drive. ↳ Screenshot
- Create the first partition: the swap partition. Right click on the blank space, select New and enter the following:
- New size (MiB): 2048
- File System: linux-swap
- Click on Add. ↳ Screenshot
- Create the second partition: the data (blockchain) partition. Richt click, select New and enter:
- File system: ext4
- Label: usb
- Click on Add. ↳ Screenshot
- Apply the changes. Click on the check mark or select Edit > Apply All Operations. ↳ Screenshot ↳ Screenshot
- Important: The name of the swap partition is needed later, so please write it down. Mine is /dev/sda1 (first partition on first drive (drive 'a')). ↳ Screenshot
- Reboot. After the reboot, the data partition you just created should be visible on your desktop. ↳ Screenshot
- The swap partition is created, so now we can enable and use it.
- The swap in use can be monitored with the program Htop. Open Htop ([Menu] > System Tools > Htop) to see the 'Swp' (swap) in use. ↳ Screenshot By default, swap is not used, so 0K. ↳ Screenshot You can leave Htop open.
- To enable the swap partition, open LXTerminal and enter the following commands: (Assuming /dev/sda1 is your swap partition.)
- You've enabled the swap partition. Switch back to Htop and check the 'Swp' (swap) value. It should read '2.0G'. ↳ Screenshot
- To make sure the swap file is persistent (so it survives a reboot), you have to add a line to the /etc/fstab file.
- In LXTerminal, enter the following command to open the file in Leafpad (text editor): sudo leafpad /etc/fstab ↳ Screenshot
- In Leafpad, add this text in a new line: /dev/sda1 swap swap defaults 0 0 ↳ Screenshot (I've added spaces to vertically align the text.)
- Save and close the file.
- Reboot your Pi.
- To see if the swap partition is in use after a reboot, open Htop ([Menu] > System Tools > htop) and check the 'Swp' (swap) value. It should read '2.0G'. ↳ Screenshot
- So, the swap partition is enabled and in use, and the data partition is prepared. We now can install the necessary software for the Reddcoin wallet; enter the following commands into LXTerminal:
- sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install git build-essential libqt4-dev libprotobuf-dev protobuf-compiler libtool autotools-dev autoconf libssl-dev libboost-all-dev wget pkg-config ↳ Screenshot
- sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin ↳ Screenshot
- sudo apt-get update
- sudo apt-get install db4.8 ↳ Screenshot ↳ Screenshot
- sudo apt-get install libminiupnpc-dev ↳ Screenshot
- sudo apt-get install libqrencode-dev ↳ Screenshot
- Reboot your Raspberry Pi.
- After the reboot, open LXTerminal again. Download, unpack, configure, build and install Berkeley DB.
- Set the working directory to your USB drive: cd /media/rpi3b/usb (rpi3b is the username I chose; if you have a different username, change it to yours.) ↳ Screenshot
- sudo wget http://download.oracle.com/berkeley-db/db-4.8.30.NC.tar.gz ↳ Screenshot ↳ Screenshot
- sudo tar xfvz db-4.8.30.NC.tar.gz ↳ Screenshot
- cd db-4.8.30.NC
- cd build_unix
- sudo ../dist/configure --enable-cxx
- sudo make This took about 10 minutes for me.
- sudo make install
- Set BerkeleyDB variables (in LXTerminal):
- export CPATH="/uslocal/BerkeleyDB.4.8/include" ↳ Screenshot
- export LIBRARY_PATH="/uslocal/BerkeleyDB.4.8/lib" ↳ Screenshot
- sudo leafpad /etc/ld.so.conf.d/daemon-libs.conf ↳ Screenshot
- Add this line in Leadpad: /uslocal/BerkeleyDB.4.8/lib/ ↳ Screenshot
- Save and close the file.
- Back in LXTerminal: sudo ldconfig ↳ Screenshot
- Download the source of the Reddcoin wallet and build it.
- Set the working directory to your USB drive: cd /media/rpi3b/usb (rpi3b is the username I chose; if you have a different username, change it to yours.)
- Download Reddcoin Core source files: sudo wget https://github.com/reddcoin-project/reddcoin/archive/arm_support_v2.zip ↳ Screenshot ↳ Screenshot
- Unzip the file: sudo unzip arm_support_v2.zip ↳ Screenshot
- rename the folder from ''unzip arm_support_v2'' to ''reddcoin'' (easier to use when needed) sudo mv reddcoin-arm_support_v2/ reddcoin/ ↳ Screenshot
- cd reddcoin ↳ Screenshot
- sudo ./autogen.sh ↳ Screenshot
- sudo ./configure --disable-tests --enable-sse2=no ↳ Screenshot
- sudo make ↳ Screenshot ↳ Screenshot ↳ Screenshot (This will take some time; with me it took just over 1 hour.)
- sudo make install ↳ Screenshot ↳ Screenshot
- Speed up synchronizing with the Reddcoin blockchain by bootstrapping.
- Set the working directory to your USB drive: cd /media/rpi3b/usb (rpi3b is the username I chose; if you have a different username, change it to yours.)
- Download the bootstrap file (1.45 GB): sudo wget https://github.com/reddcoin-project/reddcoin/releases/download/v184.108.40.206/bootstrap.dat.xz ↳ Screenshot ↳ Screenshot
- Unpack the file (large file, takes around 15 minutes to unpack): sudo xz -d bootstrap.dat.xz ↳ Screenshot
- After a successful unpack, your will find the file bootstrap.dat in your USB root folder. ↳ Screenshot
- On the first run of the Reddcoin Core client, it will ask for a data directory to store the blockchain and wallet data.
- Start the Reddcoin Core client: sudo /media/rpi3b/usb/reddcoin/src/qt/reddcoin-qt ↳ Screenshot
- The welcome screen will appear and ask you about the data directory. I suggest a new folder on your USB drive, I picked blockchain. The directory will be created with all the necessary files. ↳ Screenshot
- Select Use a custom data directory. ↳ Screenshot
- Click on the three dots (...) on the right. ↳ Screenshot
- Click on Create Folder at the upper right corner. Type and enter in the folder name. (In my case: blockchain.) Click on Open. ↳ Screenshot ↳ Screenshot ↳ Screenshot
- After selecting the directory, the Reddcoin Core client will start. Wait till it's fully loaded and close it.
- Move the bootstrap.dat file to your data directory you selected in the previous step. By doing this, Reddcoin Core will use the bootstrap.dat file to import the blockchain, which speeds up syncing. sudo mv bootstrap.dat /media/rpi3b/usb/blockchain/ (Assuming blockchain as data directory.) ↳ Screenshot
- The Reddcoin Core client set up is completed, but you still have to sync fully with the blockchain before you can send, receive and stake.
- Launch the Reddcoin Core client again: sudo /media/rpi3b/usb/reddcoin/src/qt/reddcoin-qt ↳ Screenshot ↳ Screenshot
- Keep the client running until it's fully synchronized. It will use the bootstrap file first, and download the rest of the blockchain to complete the sync. This can take some time (it took 2 days for me). Syncing the blockchain uses a lot of resources, so the software may react slow.
- You can see the progress in the debug window (Help > Debug window). ↳ Screenshot
- When the synchronization is completed, the red (out of sync) will disappear on the Overview screen! ↳ Screenshot
- When synchronization is complete, you can start staking your Reddcoins.
- For staking, your wallet needs to be encrypted: Settings > Encrypt... Do not forget your password! ↳ Screenshot ↳ Screenshot ↳ Screenshot ↳ Screenshot ↳ Screenshot
- Your wallet will be encrypted, and the Reddcoin Core client will be closed. Launch the Reddcore Client again. sudo /media/usb/reddcoin/src/qt/reddcoin-qt
- To start stake, you need to unlock your wallet (by entering your password).
- Settings > Unlock Wallet... ↳ Screenshot
- Make sure "For staking only" is checked before clicking OK. ↳ Screenshot
- You can only stake with Reddcoins that have matured: coins have to be at least 8 hours in your wallet to mature.
- The grey arrow at the bottom should be green when staking. Hover over that icon to see the progress of staking. ↳ Screenshot
This video shows how long it takes to start Reddcoin Core. TL;DR:
- [01:11] Reddcoin Core started (sudo password entered).
- [01:13] Message shown on screen: Loading block index...
- [10:14] Message shown on screen: Verifying blocks...
- [10:18] Message shown on screen: Loading wallet...
- [12:49] Message shown on screen: Done loading
- [13:13] Reddcoin Core ready to use.
Backup your wallet to prevent losing the RDDs in your wallet! There are two methods to backup, do both
. Make new backups if you create a new receiving address!
- Method 1: Backup your wallet.dat. Open Reddcoin Core. Use the menu to backup: File > Backup Wallet... ↳ Screenshot
Boot with only 1 USB drive plugged in:
- Method 2: Backup your private keys. In case you lose your wallet.dat backup, you still can import your private keys later when needed.
- To extract your private keys:
- If you have a passphrase on your wallet, unlock your wallet first. Settings -> Unlock Wallet... (make sure 'For staking only' is not checked) ↳ Screenshot ↳ Screenshot
- Extract your private keys. Debug window -> Console -> dumpprivkey ↳ Screenshot
- You can write down your private key or copy and save it in a document. Make sure you save it somewhere only you can access it.
- To import later: Debug window -> Console -> importprivkey [label] [label] is optional. ↳ Screenshot (without a label) ↳ Screenshot (with a label)
Make sure only the USB drive (with the swap partition and data partition) is plugged in when you boot up your Raspberry Pi. This to make sure the swap partition (/dev/sda1) is recognized correctly. If you boot up with multiple USB drives, Lubuntu might see the USB drive with the swap partition as the second drive (instead of the first drive), and ignore the 2 GB swap partition. If this happens, starting Reddcoin can render the Raspberry Pi unresponsive. Connection issues
If you have issues syncing the blockchain because you have 0 network connections, please follow the instructions in this thread
. Start Reddcoin Core easier
Run a shell script (.sh file), so you can start Reddcoin just by double clicking on an icon on your Desktop.
- Right Click on your Desktop and select Create New -> Empty File. ↳ Screenshot
- Enter a file name, make sure it ends with .sh, and click on OK. I've chosen for Reddcoin.sh. ↳ Screenshot The file will be created on your Desktop. ↳ Screenshot
- Add the command to start Reddcoin to the file.
- Right click on the file, select Leafpad (to open the file in a text editor). ↳ Screenshot
- Add the following to the file and save the file: sudo /media/rpi3b/usb/reddcoin/src/qt/reddcoin-qt ↳ Screenshot
- To be able to execute the shell script (.sh), it has to have 'execute permissions'.
- Right click on the file, and select Properties. ↳ Screenshot
- Click on the Permissions tab.
- For Execute, select Anyone, and click on OK. ↳ Screenshot
- To start Reddcoin Core, double click on the file. A new window will pop-up, asking you what you want. Execute in Terminal is what we want, so you can click on enter. ↳ Screenshot Reddcoin Core will now start. Do not close the Terminal window, you can minimize it if needed.
Adjust minimization options, so you can safely press on the X button (the close/exit button on the upper right corner).
RealVNC VNC Viewer (client) and VNC Connect (server):
- Activate 'Minimize on close'. Settings -> Options... -> Window (tab) -> Minimize on close. ↳ Screenshot Reddcoin will still run when you click on the X button. To close/exit Reddcoin, right click on the Reddcoin icon in the system tray (bottom right corner). ↳ Screenshot
To remote connect to the Raspberry Pi, I use VNC Viewer ad VNC Connect from RealVNC.
Chromium as browser:
- On your Raspberry Pi:
- Download VNC Connect from the RealVNC website: https://www.realvnc.com/en/connect/download/vnc/raspberrypi/.
- After your download is finished, open the file and click Install Package. ↳ Screenshot
- To run the VNC Connect once:
- Open [Menu] > Run, and enter: vncserver-x11 ↳ Screenshot
- To auto run on startup:
- Open Default applications for LXSession ([Menu] > Preferences > Default applications for LXSession). ↳ Screenshot
- In LXSessions configuration, select Autostart in the menu left.
- Under Manual autostarted applications, enter vncserver-x11 and click on + Add. ↳ Screenshot ↳ Screenshot
- Reboot your Raspberry Pi and check if VNC Connect is started automatically after the reboot.
- When VNC Connect is running, you'll see a VNC icon on the right bottom corner. Double click the icon to open VNC Connect and to see the IP address you need to enter to connect to your Raspberry Pi. ↳ Screenshot
The updates break Firefox, the browser crashes when you try to run it. Install another browser, Chromium, to solve this issue.
Updates / Upgrades
- In LXTerminal, enter: sudo apt install chromium-browser ↳ Screenshot
- You can run Chromium via [Menu] > Internet -> Chromium Web Browser ↳ Screenshot
If Software Updater shows up and tells you that there is updated software available, do not install the updates using Software Updater. Use LXTerminal
to update Lubuntu.
- Open LXTerminal and enter this command to update: sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade ↳ Screenshot
