Get started

The easiest way to get started with Duino-Coin is to download the latest release for your OS.

After downloading the release, unzip it and launch the desired program.
There are no dependencies required.

If you need help, you can take a look at the official getting started guides located on the official website.
FAQ and troubleshooting help can be found in the Wikis.

Manual installation


sudo apt update
sudo apt install python3 python3-pip git python3-pil python3-pil.imagetk -y # Install dependencies
git clone # Clone Duino-Coin repository
cd duino-coin
python3 -m pip install -r requirements.txt # Install pip dependencies

After doing this, you are good to go with launching the software (e.g. python3


  1. Download and install Python 3 (make sure you add Python and Pip to your PATH)
  2. Download the Duino-Coin repository
  3. Extract the zip archive you've downloaded and open the folder in command prompt
  4. In command prompt type py -m pip install -r requirements.txt to install required pip dependencies

After doing this, you are good to go with launching the software (just double click on desired .py files or type py in the command prompt).

Duino-Coin is a hybrid currency, meaning that it can be converted to wDUCO which is DUCO wrapped on the Tron network (as a token). Currently there aren't many uses for it, other than just storing funds in external wallet or exchanging wDUCO to another token on JustSwap. Tutorial on using wDUCO is available in the wDUCO wiki.

Terms of service

  1. Duino-Coins ("DUCOs") are earned by miners with a process called mining.
  2. Mining is described as using DUCO-S1 algorithm (explained in the Duino-Coin Whitepaper), in which finding a correct result to a mathematical problem gives the miner a reward.
  3. Mining can be officially done using CPUs, AVR boards (e.g. Arduino boards), Single-board computers (e.g. Raspberry Pi boards), ESP32/8266 boards with the usage of official miners (other officially allowed miners are described in the upper part of README).
  4. Mining on GPUs, FPGAs and other high-efficiency hardware is allowed, but using only the EXTREME mining difficulty.
  5. Any users using miners on difficulty not suited for their hardware (see the difficulty list) will be automatically throttled and/or blocked.
  6. Any users spotted using inappropriate and/or overpowered hardware will be banned manually or automatically from the network without prior notice.
  7. Banning involves blocking the user from accessing his coins along with the removal of an account.
  8. Only coins earned legally are eligible for the exchange.
  9. Users spotted using a VPN (or similar) with malicious intents (e.g. bypassing limits) may be banned without prior notice.
  10. Multiple accounts used to bypass limits may be banned without prior notice.
  11. Accounts may be suspended temporarily to investigate ("investigations") ToS violations ("violation" or "abuse").
  12. An exchange request made to the offical DUCO-Exchange ("the offical exchange") may be delayed and/or declined during investigations.
  13. Exchange requests made to the offical exchange may be declined due to ToS violations and/or low funding.
  14. Mining with free cloud hosting services (or free VPS services - e.g., GitHub Actions, etc.) is not allowed.
  15. A user's DUCOs may be burnt if a violation can be proven.
  16. These terms of service can change at any time without prior notice.
  17. Every user using Duino-Coin agrees to comply with the above rules.

Privacy policy

  1. On the master server we only store usernames, hashed passwords (with the help of bcrypt) and e-mails of users as their account data.
  2. E-mails are not publicly available and are only used for contacting user when needed, confirming exchanges on the DUCO-Exchange and receiving an occasional newsletter (planned for the future).
  3. Balances, transactions and mining-related data is publicly available in the public JSON APIs.
  4. The privacy policy may be changed in the future with a prior notification.
