Molecule (MOL) Released

We are pleased to announce the release of Molecule on 14 December 2013.

Molecule is a CPU minable alt coin based on Quark, which was in turn based on SifCoin.  The coin uses a combination of algorithms that makes it resistant to GPU and ASIC mining.

The purpose of creating this coin was both for my own edification to learn about creating one, as well as to provide a coin with economics/coin design that I think works and provides a broader opportunity for folks to mine some coin.

Molecule will be backed by promotion and publicity efforts, with the intention of spreading awareness and growing a community.  Branding, Awareness, Community, and Marketing is what I believe will differentiate molecules from other coins.

How To Mine
Wallet
To mine with the wallet, you can either add a line to molecule.conf:

Code:
gen=1

Alternatively, open the debug console (Help -> Debug Window) and type setgenerate true

Miner
To mine with a miner you need to ensure your molecule.conf file has settings for RPC, and then point your miner at the local rpc server.  molecule.conf should be placed either in %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Molecule on Windows or ~/.molecule/molecule.conf on Linux.

Example molecule.conf:

Code:
listen=1
maxconnections=80
gen=0
genproclimit=-1
rpcuser=myuser
rpcpassword=mypassword
server=1
rpcport=11875

Example minerd command line:

Code:
minerd64_sse4.exe -q -a quark --url http://127.0.0.1:11875 -u myuser -p mypassword

 

Really excited to release this and hope you all have fun!  Looks like a few have already discovered it and are collecting Molecules.  Download the wallet and get some Molecules for yourself today while the difficulty is low!
