Welcome to lipcoinj
The lipcoinj library is a lightweight wrapper library around the bitcoinj Java library, enabling support for Lipcoin (pull requests for support for other altcoins would be welcomed).
To get started, it is best to have the latest JDK and Maven installed. The HEAD of the
master branch contains the latest development code.
You should be familiar with bitcoinj first, as this library simply adds minor
changes to extend bitcoinj. Generally using lipcoinj is equivalent to using
bitcoinj, except with different network parameters (reflecting Lipcoin consensus
in place of Bitcoin).
Be aware however that altcoin blocks have their own class, AltcoinBlock, which adds support for features such as AuxPoW.
