Numus Crypto Coin


Numus is a new PoW/PoS Hybrid cryptocurrency that is based on the Skein algorithm during the hybrid PoW/PoS stage of the coin.
Our focus is the continuous improvement of Numus' eco-system and additional coin features.

Roadmap - Active

3 months plans:

  • Additional exchange listing
  • We already sent requests to Bleutrade and SouthXchange awaiting their response.
  • Reward plan rework
  • Emission of new generated coin will be reduced dramatically, it may affect masternodes ROI, but will increase coin value.
  • Limit total Amount of coins
  • Currently max coin amount is very high, so now we have much better vision how coin should "grow up" , so decision about maximum coin amount will be made. Will be announced together with new reward plan.
  • Internal code improvement
  • Numus are based on not so "fresh" version of bitcoin, so to implement all necessary network feature we need to upgrade core features and code structure. Why we are not used newer codebase? Because current codebase is proved his stability and working excellent without additional hustle. For example masternode owners noticed that Numus nodes are not require famous "Sentinel" , because they are very stable itself. So our focus now is carefully implement really necessary features and fix existing problems.
  • BIP65 (atomic swaps)
  • This is really important feature to allow Numus get listed on true decentralized exchanges. Because currently exchange-market are full of problems - some big exchanges are "flying" too high to reach them, others have non-stop problems. Our vision that in future decentralized exchanges will capture at least half of the market, so Numus should be ready for it. Technically there is a lot of work with implementing actual consensus mechanism to enable BIP65.
  • Wallet redesign
  • Some wallet improvements will be implemented. Just adjusting of current layout, dont expect too much =).
  • DarkSend fix
  • Currently DarkSend module may not work properly, we are starting testing procedure to detect root cause. Most probably that we will remove this functionality from main wallet release until it will be fully tested and fixed. We will keep special "debug" release of wallet with enabled functionality, but you should use it on your own responsibility.
  • Website update
  • Well nothing to say here, redesign + adding more information should be done.
February 2018 - April 2018

Roadmap - Done

Short term plans:

  • Network launching
  • Network was launched successfully, without issues.
  • Website launching
  • Temporary website launched to provide basic information and masternode instructions.
  • 8 nodes auction funding
  • Funding was successful. Funds were raised and Numus was added to Cryptopia. Additionally, Numus was listed on CryptoBridge via an express listing procedure.
  • Bounty campaign
  • Translation and explorer bounties were successful. Extra bounty funds are still available so additional bounties can be paid in the future.
  • Exchange listing (Target exchanges - Coinsmakers, Cryptopia)
  • Done. Coinsmarkets has been experiencing issues, so we applied to Cryptobridge as well.
  • / / listing
  • Done. Numus is listed on all three sites.
  • Coinmarketcap listing
  • Done.
  • Roadmap rework
  • Partially done.
  • Whitepapper
  • Postponed to Q2, 2018.
  • Mac OS wallet
  • Working on this, it will be fixed soon. Waiting on the testing platform.
December 2017 - February 2018

Long term Plans

Currently announced:

  • Coinomi wallet
  • We will begin negotiating with the Coinomi team and work towards meeting the prerequisites to have Numus added to their mobile wallet.
  • Altcoin payment gateway listing
  • We will begin slowly pushing Numus towards payment gateways so that Numus can be used directly for payments. At the start, using Numus for payments may incur higher fees than we would like, but this is common among all crypto currencies being used as payment methods right now. A list of services we plan to use will be announced after we are done negotiating with them.

    Numus is dependent upon libsecp256k1 by sipa, the sources for which can be found here:

    Numus includes an Address Index feature, based on the address index API (searchrawtransactions RPC command) implemented in Bitcoin Core but modified implementation to work with the NMS codebase (PoS coins maintain a txindex by default for instance).

    Initialize the Address Index By Running with -reindexaddr Command Line Argument. It may take 10-15 minutes to build the initial index.

    Masternode configuration is very similiar to other Masternodes coins.

    Masternode system requirement for running demon (Ubuntu):

    sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev software-properties-common libminiupnpc-dev
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install libdb4.8++-dev

    numus.conf (on masternode)

Numus COIN specs

    Current node setup draft:
    Hot/cold setup
    Note - if your vps has less then 2gb of ram you need to configure swap before the compiling:
    sudo fallocate -l 2G /swapfile
    sudo chmod 600 /swapfile
    sudo mkswap /swapfile
    sudo swapon /swapfile
    git clone http://
    echo '/swapfile none swap sw 0 0' | sudo tee -a /etc/fstab

    On the VPS:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install dh-autoreconf build-essential libtool autotools-dev autoconf automake libssl-dev libboost-all-dev libevent-dev pkg-config
    bsdmainutils git libminiupnpc-dev libprotobuf-dev protobuf-compiler libqrencode-dev software-properties-common libgmp3-dev git nano

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install libdb4.8-dev libdb4.8++-dev

    git clone
    cd numuscore/src
    make -f makefile.unix

    On your cold wallet (usually Windows):
    in your qt wallet open HELP->Debug windows -> Console
    put command: masternode genkey
    plus put command: masternode outputs
    save output (first one is your privkey, second one is txhash and txid (number at the end))

    On the VPS:
    (previous command will show message that you need to fill up numus.conf - its ok)

    nano ~/.numus/numus.conf

    paste this (change ip - ip of vps, and yourkey is privkey):

    ./numusd --daemon

    On your cold wallet (usually Windows):
    go to Masternodes -> My Master Nodes tab
    click create
    allias: any name
    address: nodeip:28121
    privkey: mnprivatekey
    txhash: masternodeoutputshash
    output index: yourtxindex (0 or 1)
