Bitcoin and litecoin wallet

I have started an effort to port Litecoin and Bitcoin QT wallet to Haiku. I think it is possible. I just have to first compile the perquisites, as some of them don't have Haiku patches or the versions that exist are outdated.

For now I have found that Boost library, Miniupnpc and db-4.8 are compiling but I have to write patches for some of them. Next step should be the QT interface.

This is really exciting, since my c++ is really rusty, so I am refreshing my memory and learning a few new things in the process.

If this works out and I have some free time during June, I will try to help with the port of QTWebKit 2.3

Hi,

can you provide a link to Miniupnpc binaries for Haiku (including header files) or a patch to properly build Miniupnpc on Haiku? :-)

Thank you!

Glad someone else has investigate bitcoin on Haiku OS. I've only just begun looking.

Incidentally, Bitcoin-QT--which used to call itself "Bitcoin" (confusing the newbies!)--is now calling itself "Bitcoin Core".

Also, if you're still interested in Haiku, you might want to install one of the latest nightly images. They have a lot of improvements that aren't in the Alpha 4.
