Fork It Till You Make It

This is a Bitcoin fork coin generator. Use at your own risk. Please read the Terms of Service and FAQ.


For too long it has been extraordinarily difficult, even for leading developers, to fork the Bitcoin blockchain. The need to change source code and to use a compiler has been an excessive burden. Forkgen was created to allow innovation to break free of the central planning stranglehold of Core. Inspired by successful forks like Bitcoin Gold, Bitcoin Diamond and BCash, and the visionary leadership of Craig Wright, Forkgen is the embodiment of Satoshi’s True Vision™ where if big blocks are good for scaling then many chains are even better.

Base Information

Note: keeping Bitcoin difficulty means you will need a lot of hash power to go beyond the fork point.

Proof Of Work

For Scrypt, the fork will use SHA256d up until the fork point, after which it will switch to using Scrypt.
This value only affects builds with Keep Bitcoin Difficulty set. The lower this value is, the EASIER it is to mine your fork initially. However, once you have enough hash power, this ceases to make a difference.
How much time in seconds should pass between each block, on average. For Bitcoin, this is 600 (i.e. 10 minutes). If blocks are mined faster, the difficulty will increase, and if blocks are mined slower, it will decrease. The lower this value is, the higher the orphan rate (i.e. a mined block is discarded because another block was mined around the same time).
After how many blocks does the network adjust the difficulty target. For Bitcoin this is 2016 blocks (i.e. 2 weeks). The system may experience consensus break-down if this is too low.

Subsidy

This is the STARTING (from genesis block) subsidy (pay-out) for blocks. It drops by half every subsidy interval (see Subsidy Interval below). Depending on what height you fork at, the subsidy may have ALREADY halved by the time your fork forks off. Note that due to limitations with the int64 type, putting a too high value here may cause unexpected behavior. Basically, if somebody ever gets a hold of more than 92233720369 coins at any one time, your fork will probably vomit spectacularly and messily.
Number of blocks before the subsidy is halved. In Bitcoin, this is 210 thousand, which is roughly 4 years of time assuming the average time between blocks is 10 minutes.
