Why TurtleCoin?

1. Fast Transactions

TurtleCoin is creating blocks every 30 seconds, as opposed to every 10 minutes. Your money travels 20x faster on TurtleCoin than on Bitcoin or BitcoinCash.

2. Privacy

Every transaction is private, by default.

3. Easy To Use

We support almost every OS, even on mobile you can make a secured paper-wallet for free, and get started with TurtleCoin in under 5 minutes.

4. Easy To Mine

TurtleCoin comes with its own basic CPU miner, but you can also use other mining software you're used to if you'd rather use GPU's or mining pools. Check out the mining guide.

5. Community

The TurtleCoin community is very welcoming to all users and developers. You won't get shouted at when things break, and we welcome critiques of our work. Please join us in our Discord Chat.

6. Support

We are growing a community of developers and testers in our GitHub meta-forum. You can help by testing software and submitting bug reports, or even just cheering us on from the sidelines.

The Story

Our Background

Most TurtleCoin Contributors have thick, luscious beards. FACT.

This gives us +10xp Chin Stroke abilities, and enhances our patience and diagnostic skills.

The truth is, most of us are full-time developers on other projects, and this is our way to give back to the community with something fun.

How we started it

One chilly December night, RockSteady and Bebop were having a beer too many while discussing the madness around fake, flimsy ICOs with no product. Bebop surmised that it just wouldn't be possible to put out a real project nowadays without a serious team, doing serious marketing, and bringing in serious funding.

RockSteady leaned in closely, stroked his beard intently, and had only one response..

"Hold my beer."

That night, December 9th, 2017, TurtleCoin was born.


Too many projects are bringing in too much funding despite most having no damn product. We figured, "why not do the whole thing in reverse? Start with a fun project, make it as simple and accessible as possible, and let it grow on its own."

We have a strong belief in our no-funding strategy; if we make a cool product, the value will create itself. If you think we're wrong, we're happy to talk about it.


A wise rat once said, "A turtle only moves forward by sticking his neck out.."

    Hello Turtle

    TurtleCoin was born December 9th, 2017.

    In the beginning, we were command line only, compiled only for Linux, and got banned repeatedly from online forums for hosting flash TRTL giveaways.

    GUI Wallets

    TurtleCoin Community has been hard at work to bring us a diverse graphical experience, as well as refreshing the command line wallet also. From day one, we've been committed to making TurtleCoin easier, and that starts with a good GUI. Take your pick of one of the following wallets:

    Mobius, Fast Blocks No Sync

    A big headache with proof of work is syncing a huge chain, and fast blocks don't usually help that issue. Our goal is producing faster blocks on a shorter chain. This is perhaps the most aggressive goal, and will require the most help to complete.
