Aquachain is an alt-ether, launched with no funding or pre-mine. Block number 1 was
mined March 03, 2018, and we switched from "ethash" to "argon2id" at block
22800. The platform has scheduled maintenance hardforks in case changes are
needed, and a hard fork constitution which prevents manipulation of the economy
during these upgrades.
AQUA is the native currency of the Aquachain system. Anyone in the world can
deploy "smart contracts" on the Aquachain today, using AQUA as "fuel" in the
platform. The economy is inflated by 1 coin every block (target: 240 seconds).
AQUA is not an ERC-20 token, and should not be confused with other projects
with similar names that are raising money from ICO and pre-sales. Aquachain
core developers are able to raise funds via the Aquachain Foundation which exists
for this exact purpose.
Apart from the "official" console wallet, there are multiple GUI wallets
available, such as MyCrypto, MyEtherWallet, Metamask, and a few wallets created
by the Aquachain team (aquachain-kv and aquachain-tk)
The Aquachain Foundation, whos mission is to advance the Aquachain platform for
the good of society by way of development and promotion, runs a simple yet
informative portal at https://aquacha.in, there you will find HTTP access to
'/supply', '/status/miners' and more described at the front page.
From the AQUA> console, try the 'help' command. Type help and press ENTER.
Before starting aquachain, get help for an aquachain sub-command, for example
aquachain.exe help account
Get help with aquachain command line flags: aquachain.exe -h

Relevant command line flags not present in ethereum base:
-allowip flag, defaults to 127.0.0.1/20, is comma separated CIDR subnets, no spaces.
-nokeys flag, disables all keystore watching/activity, no signing via RPC, great if you send raw signed transactions only.
Optionally, You are able to set static and trusted nodes via a .toml config
file, and use the -conf flag with the path to the file. This allows your node
to stay up to date but without connecting to the discovery network.
