Litecoin - Global Decentralized Currency

  •        164

Litecoin is an experimental digital currency that enables instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. Litecoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority: managing transactions and issuing money are carried out collectively by the network. Litecoin Core is the name of open source software which enables the use of this currency.

The Litecoin blockchain is capable of handling higher transaction volume than its counterpart - Bitcoin. Due to more frequent block generation, the network supports more transactions without a need to modify the software in the future.

naivecoin - A cryptocurrency implementation in less than 1500 lines of code

  •    Javascript

Cryptocurrencies and smart-contracts on top of a blockchain aren't the most trivial concepts to understand, things like wallets, addresses, block proof-of-work, transactions and their signatures, make more sense when they are in a broad context. Inspired by naivechain, this project is an attempt to provide as concise and simple an implementation of a cryptocurrency as possible. From Wikipedia : A cryptocurrency (or crypto currency) is a digital asset designed to work as a medium of exchange using cryptography to secure the transactions and to control the creation of additional units of the currency.

crypto-arbitrage - Automatic Trading Bot using Triangular or Exchange Arbitrages

  •    Python

This is an automatic trading bot using Triangular or Exchange Arbitrages. It reguarly checks and detects arbitrage opportunities, and place orders when a profit can be made. This works on any cryptocurrency pairs with minor configuration. Started with $1000 in October 2017, there were some times that this made about $40/day for a few weeks with Triangular Arbitrage on Bittrex, but as the market is getting very unstable, the profit is hard to outrun the high price fluctuation. Triangular: python main.py -m triangular Exchange: python main.py -m exchange Mock mode is enabled by default, which does not place any order and just check and show any arbitrage opportunities. To turn off mock mode and run in production, add the argument -p.
