What is I0coin?
I0C (logo by Lightlord), our favourite non-premined, fully decentralised, merged minable altcoin is back. I0coin used to require a lot of memory, about 8.2GB. The updated version only uses about 250MB (fully synced). The problem was fixed by moving data from memory storage to disk storage (this data was almost never used, it just took up space). Technical details are in the git log.
Merged minable means you can mine this coin for free while mining BTC. The new release is compatible with the old one, users using the old crashy and memory-hungry client will see the same blockchain as users of the new client.Release date: August 27th, 2013
