DESCRIPTION

When something is truly free, it has no bounds. It can go anywhere it pleases and will stop at nothing to fight for its liberty.
If challenged, the free shall not be barred for the need, or denied the means to defend itself from tyrants to the end.

You can mine this digital asset with the wallet and just a cpu! Just download and open the console and enter "setgenerate true".

The asset is designed to have a max supply of 26,910,720 units that can be broken down to one-hundred-million of each unit and is immutable. Unlike, centralized fractional banking reserves that prints fiat with no financial backing, or standards.

Throughout history, this system has caused war, recessions, hyper-inflation, market manipulation, and quantitative easing to fix its inconsistencies, by printing fiat out of thin air.

The asset has a 144 year mining life, and will be able to be mined by anyone with a regular home computer like the beginning days of Bitcoin. This was before its algorithm was manipulated by special hashing systems [ASIC/FPGA/GPU's], and is now being dictated by its market price in order to run. These types of systems use substantial amounts of energy, and also cost in the thousands to purchase.

In recent times, several significant drops in its market value (per unit) has dictated the cost to operate these systems, and inhibits investment (mining) by being too expensive to operate. Which defeats the purpose of being a decentralized financial payment system, and it is imperative that a blockchain is mined for it to work. Additionally, when a halving occurs, the market value (per asset) has to increase in value in order to gain a return for its operating costs. Moreover, these systems have an unfair advantage over CPU's, and its core principle of being a large peer to peer network is greatly reduced.

The main consensus for IsotopeC, is to assure that these systems are challenged by the algorithm implemented through periodic algorithmic change from time to time. This is to attain the ability for mining only by CPU's for its consensus, market fairness and power efficiency.

It's purpose is to establish a private trust-less payment system and the ability to send payments instantly to anyone in the world, without any central authority for its users.
Every transaction written to the ledger is public and is fully visible in the IsotopeC blockchain.

IsotopeC is strictly a grassroots asset with no ICO, or funding. It was fairly launched with no business structure, and its miner consensus determines its direction. There was no pre-mine and there will never be any airdrops, or faucets.

It was designed to be free from tyranny, and will be the bastion of crypto freedom.

Note: IsotopeC was launched with no ICO, and exchanges are able to list IsotopeC without the need for permission.

IsotopeC has no funding for pre-listing, post listing, or any reoccurring fee's, and is held harmless of any expenses occurred that lists IsotopeC for trade and/or purchase.

The business model for an exchange charges fee's to those that use their services.

OPTIONS

--cpu-mining

After installing the IsotopeC QT wallet. You can set the wallet to mine after it has synchronized with the IsotopeC blockchain.
Cpu mining was always a big part of the beginning days of crypto, when all it took was a CPU running a node/daemon to help support the network.
The main consensus of the IsotopeC blockchain, is to stick to this principle.

--wallet-miner

IsotopeC Miner

* Go to Help -> Debug window -> Console
* Enter: "setgenerate true" in the terminal without the quotations.
* Your systems CPU fan will speed up and your wallet will then start to mine.
* Continue using the computer and minimize the wallet or set it to start up in the background after your system boots.
Type -> "help" in the console to see more commands.

Customize: Use "setgenerate true 4" without the quotations and "4" being the amount of cores in your computer. By default, if no # is specified. The amount of cores used by the wallet miner will be -1 core of the total cpu cores in your system to allow continued use of your computer, while you mine IsotopeC.

--dark-gravity-wave

Dark Gravity Wave is an open source mining difficulty re-adjustment algorithm that was deployed to assist with difficulty on the IsotopeC blockchain.
Stock configuration for IsotopeC DGW is set to re-target every 10 to 12 blocks. DGW uses multiple exponential moving averages with a simple moving average to achieve the smoother difficulty re-target mechanism and is immune to issues like multipools.
As it calculates difficulty every single block, the DGW chain becomes more secure and block times are much more consistent; despite large fluctuations in mining power.
Apart from controlled difficulty some other benefits of Dark Gravity Wave are security, faster transactions, and its reliability.

Current Version: DarkGravity v3

DarkGravity v3, GeertJohan's version

--yespower-algo

Yespower is a proof-of-work (PoW) focused fork of yescrypt, which in turn builds upon scrypt.
While yescrypt is a password-based key derivation function (KDF) and password hashing scheme, and thus is meant for processing passwords.
Yespower is also meant for processing trial inputs such as block headers (including nonces) in PoW-based blockchains.
Designed by Openwall / Solar Designer

Current version: Yespower 1.0.1

--gpu-resistant

--future-development

The idea of incorporating one payment channel into a protocol, is not what the developer foresees as a good idea. It is this notion why the developer decided to look at a point in time and a version of Bitcoin core that was free of any side chains being built into its core.
The developer foresees an industry for off chain entities to exist that users can choose from, and not be forced to use just one.
Satoshi Nakamoto said it best... "Piling every proof-of-work quorum system in the world into one dataset doesn't scale." – December 10, 2010

Although, the developer believes that payment channels are a great idea to speed things up on a blockchain and are made by very talented and gifted people. It's just that it's the developers belief that it should be a market on its own and with competition. That's if, a user chooses to use a side chain and not be left with no choice at all.

This area has caused much contentious debate in the crypto world and now that a side chain payment channel is fully immersed into the Bitcoin protocol. It's just a matter of time that its users will feel its control and eventually realize how incrementalism is used to bring on radical change away from what was originally intended.
By then, it will be too late. As it is now the case and completely a part of its core. Its users will then understand that it should of been left alone as a protocol.

The area of interest for IsotopeC starts with sun-setting Segregated Witness and replacing ECDSA with Schnorr Signatures into the Script Opcodes. As IsotopeC scales, its block size will be increased in accordance to transaction demand and miner input. In addition to incorporating side-chains and connecting other blockchains.

--no-premine

IsotopeC has no premine from the genesis block and the genesis is not spendable.

--no-ico

There will be no Initial Coin Offering for IsotopeC. History has shown that the vast majority of ICO's bring on fraud and trouble for the community. Some have success. But, most end up screwing over its investors and the virtue signaling that these con artists represent, are purporting a good cause or claim that something is being donated. It's just not in the developers interest to sell the asset that way. Just live free and mine!

--no-faucets

There will be no faucets for IsotopeC. This is because the developer believes that faucets reduce an assets capacity and inhibits its growth. The purpose is to create a payment system that is easy for anyone to mine and use.

--no-airdrops

There will be no Airdrops from IsotopeC. This is similar to how the developer views faucets.
