EtherCore is a decentralized open source smart contract platform with its own cryptocurrency (ERE) that is based on ProgPoW algorithm and Ethereum protocol. The main goal of EtherCore is to research and develop a reference implementation of a secure, scalable, and decentralized blockchain ecosystem and application development environment.
EtherCore is a mineable cryptocurrency with ERE ticker. EtherCore is distributed and developed as a self-governed main network.
EtherCore coin (ERE) was initially distributed as an airdrop to the holders of Ethereum. A snapshot was taken at block X and distributed in 1:1 ratio to the new blockchain of EtherCore Network.
In order to claim EtherCore, the funds have to be on the supported wallets or exchanges.
EtherCore mainnet is supported by several wallets:
EtherCore Wallet: The native web-based wallet of EtherCore
MyEtherWallet: A free, client-side open-source web-based wallet for Ethereum-like blockchains
MyCrypto: Web, Windows, OSX and Linux app wallet
Trezor: Hardware based cryptocurrency wallet for storing coins
Ledger: State-of-the-art Hardware Wallet for crypto assets
You can run EtherCore node with the following supported node implementations:
Go-EtherCore: Golang based native EtherCore mainnet node implementation
Parity-Ethereum: Rust based node implementation for Ethereum-like networks
For go-ethercore, start the node with
geth command, for parity-ethereum, start the node with
parity --chain=ethercore command
Yes. Truffle can be used in developing smart contracts on EtherCore with the node running on local or using our public remote node endpoint https://rpc.ethercore.io.
EtherCore uses 30303 (both tcp and udp) for p2p communication between nodes and 8545 / 8546 for RPC / Web socket connection.
Yes, EtherCore coins can be mined via Solo Mining with local EtherCore node or a Mining Pool supporting EtherCore mainnet.
EtherCore uses ProgPoW, an ASIC resistant, GPU friendly programmatic Proof-of-Work mining consensus algorithm for mainnet and Clique / Istanbul BFT Proof-of-Authority consensus algorithm for sidechain implementation.
You can mine EtherCore with a GPU that has at least 2GB of memory using the following miner implementations:
EthCoreMiner: GPU desktop miner for EtherCore ProgPoW mining, supports the latest ProgPoW 0.9.3 implementation.
TT-Miner: Windows and linux miner for multiple GPU mineable coins.
At this moment on phrase 1 of regular halving schedule, EtherCore has 1 ERE of block reward.
EtherCore has implemented a regular halving schedule which is called ECIP-1017, every 100 million blocks the mining reward of EtherCore will be decreased up to 30 percent.
With the help of ProgPoW consensus algorithm EtherCore is considered as an ASIC resistant GPU mineable coin.
EtherCore mainnet block time is ~ 14 seconds and for sidechain implementation 1 second.
