How To Make A Cryptocurrency?

Step 1. Choose a Consensus Mechanism

Consensus mechanisms are the protocols that consider a particular transaction legitimate and add to the block.

Step 2. Pick a Blockchain Platform.

The correct choice of blockchain platform for your business depends on the consensus mechanism you’ve selected. (I’ll mention the top blockchain platforms below for you to choose from)

Step 3. Design The Nodes

You have to decide the workings and functionality of your blockchain and design the nodes accordingly. For instance, will the permissions be private or public? The hosting will be on the cloud or on-premises, or both? What would be the required hardware details for the execution?

Step 4. Establish Blockchain’s Internal Architecture

Be sure about all the aspects before the launch as you won’t be able to change several parameters of the blockchain after it’s launched and running. The decisions could be as simple as what address format your blockchain will follow to providing exchanges between different cryptocurrencies without a 3rd party intermediary.

Step 5. Integrate APIs

Some platforms don’t provide pre-built APIs so make sure yours does. If it doesn’t still no need to worry, there are several 3rd party blockchain API providers like ChromaWay, Gem, Colu, Bitcore, BlockCypher, and Tierion.

Step 6: Design The Interface

Building a world-class cryptocurrency is of no use if your interface is not good. You need to make sure that the web, FTP servers, and external databases are of most recent and the front-end and back-end programming is done with the future upgrades in mind.

Step 7. Make Your Cryptocurrency Legal

Make sure that your cryptocurrency is prepared and abiding by the soon to become laws of international cryptocurrency regulations. This way your work is preserved and no sudden surprises can ruin your efforts in creating a new cryptocurrency.
