    As a pilot project, I’m cloning the latest version of Litecoin.
    Several Reasons:

    I think it’s an awesome idea to work on Litecoin code base.
    How easy do you think it can be to change algo from PoW to shadowcash/blackcoin PoS? As far as I know there is still no PoS coins with SegWit.

    I want the new PRA coin to have Segwit related BIPs activated from the start. Because we can 😉

    As to pulling PoS functionality in, I have no idea. Personally would like to start with plugging in something much simpler, like a variant of Scrypt, and then say X11.

    And before that, a better difficulty adjustment, like Zcash type adjustment every block, or one of the recent Kimoto variants. For the moment just shortened the adjustment period to like an hour, from two weeks 🙂

    At the moment working on getting the current Litecoin codebase (0.13.2.1 – BTW Bitcoin already has 0.14) with such mods to mine. The Genesis block generation seems fine, but the cpuminer does not play.

    I was hoping you would do this project with LiteCoin code base. Seems good for my interests. Thank you.

    The Litecoin folks made the effort to catch-up with the Bitcoin 0.14 codebase, with all of the improvements, patches, optimization. In my mind it’s the codebase to clone, going forward.

    Always good to stand on the shoulders of giants.

    I have adapted some older (HP T5740) 32 bit Thin Clients to run Bitcoin Core as full nodes. Have four of them running now. Is there any chance to have the PRA full node s/w complied as 32 bit for linux? These thin clients take about 25 watts power and just do the job for hardly any outlay. I can offer to convert these over to contribute to the PRA P2P network. They are running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

    Can you post a status update of the project?
    I love to help out but I don’t have a clue where your stuck atm.
