ALERT: New Bitcoin scam wallet added to Apple Store. Please report if you can to help prevent theft for the community (details inside)


Unfortunately it seems like another scam wallet has been added to the Apple Store, this time it's based on Mycelium's code. I've helped expose nearly 25 scam wallets on iOS (which have all been taken down). They all share similar characteristics, and the big giveaway for this one which many of those scams shared is it's copyright is "Wallet".

Stay away from this wallet and report it!

Technical details of premining

I’m just kind of an enthusiastic beginner in this topic. I have created an altcoin using one of the many public available sources (cryptonote in this case). I want now to create a new coin with premine. After I read a lots of comments I still don’t get the exact point which would I need to modify in the code to have my coins premined.

What I have in my mind (correct me if I’m wrong): There is a two-step compilation. First is without genesis block, this is actually for generating the genesis block. Second is the final with genesis block included in the config.

So my idea is to include the premined coins’ transaction in the genesis block in first run. Is this a good way doing it?

If yes, I assume Currency.cpp needs to be modified. Here is I’m a bit stuck, how can I manually ‘mine’ 10% of my total coins? Should I modify baseReward to totalcoins * 10% in the first compilation?
