What is this?

Bitcoin Cash is still a mysterious black box to most people and companies that would potentially want to use it, or build applications with.

Flowee has been built to help you use Bitcoin Cash. Bring you a platform to stand on when you simply use or when you build with Bitcoin Cash.

The codebase is derived from the one that originally was created by Satoshi Nakamoto, the inventor of Bitcoin. This way you know you won't get compatibility issues. Flowee is adjusted for greatly increased speed and reliability as well as for scaling up to much larger blocks than the competition.

sudo apt install cmake libssl-dev libboost-all-dev qt6-tools-dev-tools qt6-tools-dev
