Common questions from telegram
Are we doing an ICO
When will MainNet be available
TODO (don't commit to an exact date)
Is miner CPU or GPU
Right now it is CPU only. We will create a GPU miner for MainNet
What algorithm do you use?
vBlake, which is a custom version of BLAKE2b we created.
Is it ASIC resistant?
Is is not ASIC resistant, but we are ok with this (there are not any ASICs yet since it's a new algorithm)
How to get started
Where to get software
Download the software on github: https://github.com/VeriBlock/nodecore-releases (this has a readme)
Can I mine the coin now?
Yes, but it is for testnet only. Mainnet will have a new genesis block. The coins on testnet are for testing purposes only, and will not transfer to mainnet.
Troubleshooting when running software
NodeCore.bat is doing nothing
Ensure that Java is installed (Uses Java 1.8, the code used lambda functions)
Set the environmental variables.
