-For node operator: You don’t need to worry that your node domain name starts with “z”, node list order will be randomized everytime user accessing node setting page, so each nodes has a relatively fair chance to be on top of the list.

TurtleCoin Test Suite — It takes a lot of effort to test all of the RPC calls to TurtleCoind and turtle-service each release. As anyone can tell you, give a lazy man a task and he’ll find an easy way to do it. Given this bit of wisdom, check out turtlecoin-test-suite written in Node.js for quick and simple RPC testing for those of us that want to spend more time coding and less time testing. — IBurnMyCD

Name of your TRTL fork — FRED
Github link for your code — https://github.com/fredenrg/FRED
What is special or new about your network?
An increasing population and the industrialization of emerging economies will have a huge impact on future global energy demands and the environment. The FRED Project is aimed at promoting the benefits of alternative energy generation at the consumer level. We believe this will help to reduce the associated environmental impacts of fossil fuel energy generation, and the effects of energy price increases on the consumer due to demand. In addition to promoting consumer energy generation, we are also exploring the possibilities of future alternative and free energy devices. The term “free energy” may sound impossible and some readers may have already run for the hills, but we believe there are devices out there (although not totally free) that have the potential to become mainstream. Why fork TurtleCoin? The reason for choosing TurtleCoin as our base fork was due to the incredible collaboration between the developers and the community. We believe TurtleCoin will be one of the most well developed and feature rich cryptonote coins. We are also looking for contributors of all levels, in all areas of development and promotion. http://fredenergy.org
