The Walrus Association of America is proud to announce the creation and birth of our very own cryptocurrency, Walruscoin! After much time spent attempting to produce a valid MerkleRoot hash, the genesis block was mined at precisely 1400237336 (that’s Friday, 16 May 2014 10:48:56 GMT for those of you who can’t read Epoch time). While the *nix daemons were built quickly and easily, it was another 3 days before a usable OSX Qt client was built and 7 days before Walruscoin-qt for Windoze was “finalized”.1
The wallet art was done by our very own answers and prominently features the profile of a glorious walrus. While the source code and client are not being released to the public at this time, you may contact us for a copy if you are interested.

1 I say “finalized” because it’s hugely unstable and crashes if you so much as think something it doesn’t like.
