If you have some experience with cryptocurrency mining and want specific details of the coin they follow here.  In a few days I will have a much more detailed essay available here on why I designed this coin specifically with these parameters and plans for the future of Cinnamon Coin.

  • Scrypt Proof of Stake
  • 5 Minute Block Target
  • Linear Diff Retarget
  • Block reward < 300 = 1 Coin to mitigate premine/insta-mine
  • 1% proof of stake after 60 days of coin age
  • 64 Coins Per Block, Halving every 2 years
  • ~27,000,000 Million Proof of Work Coins over 14 years
  • .01 Set Tx Fee
  • 40 Confirms for Minted Coins to be spendable
  • POW mining for 14 years
  • 3 block transaction confirmation

Sample conf file for solo mining since no pools are available yet:









  • Start upCinnamonCoin-qt, wait for it to load, then exit.
  • Put cinnamoncoin.conf (see sample file above) in your c:/users/**yourcomputername**/appdata/roaming/cinnamoncoin
  • Restart cinnamoncoin-qt, and you should connect and sync.
  • For solo mining, launch cgminer or whatever mining program you like and begin mining.
  • cgminer ex: cgminer.exe –scrypt -o localhost:**** -u **yourusername** -p **password** (without **)
  • Do not name the file cinnamoncoin.conf.txt or it will not work.

This is experimental software.

Keep an eye on this website since I have many things to add in the near future.
