rewrite bitcoin, make it super-pluggable, very easy to do and hack everything at every level, and very configurable

All files in this repository fall under the license specified in LICENSE
Right now, the project is licensed under the AGPL but we're still working
on a different license and plan to relicense the project at a later date.

You will need:

  - g++ 4.6
  - cppdb
  - boost

Build cppdb using the instructions on their site.

  $ svn co cppdb-trunk
  $ cd cppdb-trunk
  $ mkdir build
  $ cd build
  $ cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/home/smf/libbitcoin/usr/ .. -DPQ_BACKEND_INTERNAL=1
  $ make
  # make install

Edit the Makefile CFLAGS and LIBS variables to get the project to compile.
Import the database too.

  $ psql bitcoin < bitcoin.sql

A good place to start is to run:

  $ make net
  $ ./bin/tests/nettest

This is still a work in progress.
