VF Cash is a mineable cryptocurrency built from the ground up featuring cutting edge cryptography and the world's first Proof-of-Key algorithm. Lightweight, secure, and fast, you can use VF Cash to safely and effortlessly send any amount of value, whether it is a micro payment for an IoT device or vast sums transferred between institutions. Transactions are instant and there are no transaction fees.
Run `vfc mine` and earn some VFC to register your node on the network
Make sure you run compile.sh as root e.g. sudo ./compile.sh
If you are behind a router make sure you have UDP port 8787 forwarded to the correct local IP address on your network.
If you are in China you will find that you may have your internet connection dropped periodically due to the use of UDP.
Please ensure you have an IPv4 address, otherwise use a VPN with IPv4 Port Forwarding like airvpn.org this is also a good option for users in China who get disconnected a lot due to the UDP protocol, AirVPN can force all traffic to arrive via a TCP tunnel.
You do not need to run a local node to mine and automatically claim the reward to your rewards address, although I highly suggest your run a node anyway, as nodes receive additional reward payments.
Your data directory is located at ~/.vfc/ you can change this by setting the Environment Variable VFCDIR to a custom directory path. You're reward address private key is located in ~/.vfc/private.key this is all you need to backup.
Rewards are automatically paid into your rewards address vfc rewards. ~/.vfc/private.key
If some rewards fail to transfer, you can manually transfer funds as all mined keys are saved to ~/.vfc/minted.priv you can view them with the command cat ~/.vfc/minted.priv
Once you are up and running, you just need to run the command vfc help and explore.

What is VF Cash?
VF Cash is a Cryptocurrency project that started on the 23rd of April 2019. It has no Proof-of-Work (POW) rather it has a finders-keeps distribution system similar to mining and a transaction rate limit per address / public key of three seconds for the confirmation period. This prevents the sender of the transaction from making any further transactions during this period. The chain is unordered (DAG), and the networking uses UDP. The Digital Signature algorithm uses secp256r1.
Divisible to three decimal places, minable, free transactions, written in C, compiled with GCC, 256-bit key length, Transactions are 76.16% smaller than an average Bitcoin-Core transaction, relating to total blockchain size.
Transactions are free, there is no charge for making a transaction on the network. However transactions do create inflation of the currency which is partly paid back to the node operators as rewards.
