Custom Bitcoin?

No specific Bitcoin Bounty has been announced by author. Still, anyone could send Bitcoin Tips to those who provide a good answer.

What is the best way for a curious developer to learn how to create their own version of bitcoin?

Hi Dennis, welcome to BitExperts! The very first step is to get some real bitcoins to play with :) So coins here they come :) On a serious note, I would post some starting points on how to create your own "altcoin" a bit later.

Thanks, Alex. I believe my phone did buzz the moment you sent that tip, however the bitcoins never appeared in my wallet. It would be good if they would show up as pending like the Bitcoin Core app on the desktop does. Also, it's showing up as "Transaction Not Found" on this site.

Hi Dennis,

since you are skilled in C++, it should not be too difficult for you to create your own altcoin by cloning one of the existing coins, since they are all open source projects. I think most altcoins in the early days (2013 was the year of altcoins) were created by cloning Litecoin, but I may be wrong.

Reasonably good introduction:

More detailed guide with some technical discussion Complete Guide on How to Create a New Alt Coin (from 2013):

There is also a whole bunch of threads on forum about altcoins. It was a thing in 2013 / 2014 to pump and dump all these coins.


thanks Alex

some funds for testing :)
