Can you add support for another cryptocurrency?

< Back to Help

Overview

We want to add support for as many cryptocurrencies as we can to Openclerk (the underlying open source project), with priority on cryptocurrencies that are in highest demand. The requirements for supporting any cryptocurrency are:

  • There needs to be a stable, public explorer API to query for exact account balances with a given number of transactions.
  • This explorer API should also be able to list the current block number, and list recent transactions in a standard format.
  • For example, a port of Abe is usually sufficient.

Cryptocurrencies that do not have a suitable explorer API yet at the time of writing:
  • Smartcoin

Currently CryptFolio supports the Bitcoin, Litecoin, Namecoin, Peercoin, Feathercoin, Primecoin, Novacoin, Terracoin, Dogecoin, Megacoin, Ripple, Digitalcoin, Worldcoin, Ixcoin, Vertcoin, Netcoin, Blackcoin, HoboNickels, Darkcoin, Vericoin, Nxt, Reddcoin, Viacoin, NuBits, NuShares, and StorjCoin new cryptocurrencies.

In the future, CryptFolio will host cryptocurrency explorer instances locally, removing these requirements and making it possible to add almost any cryptocurrency; please donate or purchase a premium account to support this upcoming feature.
