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.
200,000,000 max molecules will be created
Default RPC Port: 18474

How To Mine
To mine with the wallet, you can either add a line to molecule.conf:
Alternatively, open the debug console (Help -> Debug Window) and type setgenerate true
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.
