Ellaism - A stable network with no premine and no dev fees

  • Average block time: 14 seconds.
  • Expected block time: 10-19 seconds (inclusive).
  • Coin generation: 5 Ella per block with 20% reward reduction happens every 10 million blocks.
  • Network ID is 0x40.
  • Replay protection enabled by default, and chain ID is 0x40.
  • No difficulty bomb.
  • Most other parameters are the same as Ethereum.

This is an Ethereum network as specified in the yellow paper[1], with Homestead[2], EIP150[3], EIP155[4], EIP160[5], ECIP1017[6]
applied from block 0.
The era for ECIP1017 is changed to 10 million. Chain id and network id are both 0x40. Difficulty bomb is diffused from block 0.

Genesis block contains 0 coins (hence no premine). The initial difficulty in genesis block is changed to 0x40000000, its extra data field is
0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000, and its initial nonce is 0x0000000000000040.
