Сryptocurrency development analysis


This document is not entirely complete. It contains a functional specification of most parts of the core blockchain logic of Cardano. As it is currently implemented. The main purpose of this document is to serve as a source for property tests, with the purpose of avoiding regression on future refactors.

I have spent very little time caring about formatting and such. If there are formatting constraints that you would like to see being applied before next release, don’t hesitate to say in the comments. Or directly at [CDEC-163](https://iohk.myjetbrains.com/youtrack/issue/CDEC-223).

## Type of change

— [~] 🐞 Bug fix (non-breaking change which fixes an issue)
— [~] 🛠 New feature (non-breaking change which adds functionality)
— [~] ⚠️ Breaking change (fix or feature that would cause existing functionality to change)
— [~] 🏭 Refactoring that does not change existing functionality but does improve things like code readability, structure etc
— [~] 🔨 New or improved tests for existing code
— [~] ⛑ git-flow chore (backport, hotfix, etc)

## Developer checklist

— [~] I have read the [style guide](https://github.com/input-output-hk/cardano-sl/blob/develop/docs/style-guide.md) document, and my code follows the code style of this project.
— [~] If my code deals with exceptions, it follows the [guidelines](https://github.com/input-output-hk/cardano-sl/blob/develop/docs/exceptions.md).
— [~] I have updated any documentation accordingly, if needed. Documentation changes can be reflected in opening a PR on [cardanodocs.com](https://github.com/input-output-hk/cardanodocs.com), amending the inline [Haddock](https://www.haskell.org/haddock/) comments, any relevant README file or one of the document listed in the [docs](https://github.com/input-output-hk/cardano-sl/tree/develop/docs) directory.

## Testing checklist

— [~] I have added tests to cover my changes.
— [~] All new and existing tests passed.
