Step by Step Guide to Starting Smart Mining of ViaBTC

Step by Step Guide to Starting Smart Mining of ViaBTC
In order to help our miners to get the best possible profits, now we present you the step by step guide to starting Smart Mining of ViaBTC. No time for hesitation, try Smart Mining now!
Smart mining consists of two different mining modes, namely as “Manual Switch” and “Auto Switch”.
Auto Switch provides an automated way of profitable mining using the designated algorithm to monitor the real-time status of possible returns. In comparison to manual switch, it’s more flexible and easier to keep tracking of your mining returns.
1.
Enable Auto Switch
It now supports BTC、BCH and BSV, besides, your assets in your account can also be converted into BTC on an hourly basis automatically.
Before enabling auto switch mode, you’re required to configure smart mining URL: stratum+tcp://bitcoin.viabtc.com:3333;
Enable Manual Switch
This supports Bitcoin pool (BTC, BCH, BSV, FCH) and Ethereum pool (ETH, ETC).
One-click switch address is different from the stratum URL for a specified coin. Details for one-click switch URL are listed as following: BTC/BCH/BSV/FCH: stratum+tcp://bitcoin.viabtc.com:3333 ETH/ETC: stratum+tcp://ethereum.viabtc.com:3333 Noted: Port 25 or 443 is available as an alternative option.
2.
Go to www.viabtc.com then click [Settings] from the drop-down menu on your right hand side.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the unique feature of Auto Switch compares to Manual Switch? It’s more flexible and easy to set up, SHA-256 mining algorithm compatible.
How long will it take to be activated after enabling Auto Switch? Once Auto Switch is on, system will monitor the possible return rate of all compatible coins using a designated algorithm and switch to the one with higher profits, you may go to the Pool panel for more accurate mining status.
Why I can’t see my earnings increased after enabling Auto Switch mode? Auto Switch mode demands high-efficiency when it switch between the current mined coins to the new one with possible high returns, specified using designated algorithm and current difficulty, thus it’s not a guarantee pass for high returns when “Auto Switch” is on.
Is there any requirements of MIN. limit of hashrate before enabling Auto Switch? There is no minimum limit of hashrate in your account before enabling Auto Switch in your account.
Which type of coins are supported in Auto Switch mode? Currently all types of coins in Bitcoin Pool are supported in Auto Switch mode, including BTC, BCH and BSV.
When will the mining rewards distributed to my account? Rewards distribution are varies for different mining modes, and distribution time remained unchanged compares to the one in Manual Switch mode.
Can I use part of hashrate to mine a designated coin after enabling Auto Switch? After enabling Auto Switch, hashrate connecting to your account will switch from one to the other automatically using a designated algorithm.
Will I receive hashrate fluctuation notification after enabling Auto Switch? You’re required to set hashrate fluctuation notification for all compatible coins by the time enabling Auto Switch, more detailed guideline can be found here.
How to check your current mining preference?
Go to www.viabtc.com first then enter [Pool] panel to check your current mining preference.
When should I change my mining preference?
It is recommended to use profit calculator to get a general idea of the theoretical earnings outcome when selecting mining preference.

AsicBoost and the strange case of CVE-2017-9230

About CVEs

In the public interest of tracking and remedying cybersecurity vulnerabilities quickly, a public database was created in 2000: the CVE List [1].
CVE stands for Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures. Its database records, known as CVEs, track and record publicly known cybersecurity vulnerabilities. Each recorded vulnerability has a unique ID and lifecycle where it follows certain states.

The AsicBoost controversy

In April 2017, Greg Maxwell published an email [2] on the bitcoin-dev mailing list which described AsicBoost - a patented optimization to the algorithm used in Bitcoin mining - as an attack on the Bitcoin protocol.
There was much contention [3] about whether AsicBoost constituted some kind of harmful exploit, or whether it was merely a technological innovation which enabled more efficient mining hardware (ASICs).
There were allegations, widely reported in media, that the patent served the interest of Bitmain [4]. The purported benefits of exploiting this patent as alleged by Core developers were contemporaneously disputed by other miners [5].

CVE-2017-9230 raised against AsicBoost

On 18 May 2017, Cameron Garnham posted to the bitcoin-dev list [6], urging for getting a CVE assigned to the perceived vulnerability.
On 24 May 2017, this CVE was created as CVE-2017-9230 [7]. It was simultaneously published under Bugtraq ID 'BID 98657' at [8].
The justification in the CVE stated that the AsicBoost method
'violates the security assumptions of (1) the choice of input, outside of the dedicated nonce area, fed into the Proof-of-Work function should not change its difficulty to evaluate and (2) every Proof-of-Work function execution should be independent.'
It seemed a plausible enough reasoning for the CVE to be assigned. It was entered in the list of Bitcoin-related CVE's at [9]. Detailed information on this particular CVE is still missing/incomplete on the wiki page, a year after the CVE was raised.

What happened since the CVE was raised

If you've followed along, you've learned that the CVE was raised to counter the exploitation of the AsicBoost method by miners.
Since then, however, a Core developer, BtcDrak, has been involved in the founding of a mining company, Halong Mining. Several online sources state his (part?) ownership of this company.
BtcDrak has put forward a proposal [10] which would enable the use of AsicBoost within the Bitcoin Core software (the dominant client software on the BTC network).
This proposal appears to directly contradict the CVE claims of how AsicBoost violates "security assumptions" of Bitcoin, and indeed does not address how it mitigates them, nor is CVE-2017-9230 referenced in any of its related documentation.
While the proposal's specification [11] and implementation [12] have not yet been formally accepted, the situation is that Halong has shipped mining equipment which is now actively employing AsicBoost [13,14] on the Bitcoin (BTC) network. There is even a website showing the blocks where AsicBoost was used [15].

Conflict of interest

There a clear conflict of interest in the actions of the Core developer BtcDrak. His actions as a Core developer appear to be furthering his company's interests and competitive advantage in the mining industry by exploiting a vulnerability of which he must have been keenly aware, having participated on the same bitcoin-dev mailing list where it was discussed.
The CVE was vociferously used to paint Bitmain as culpable for delaying Segwit (Bitmain was accused of using AsicBoost and blocking Segwit activation for their own profit motive - claims that Bitmain has publicly denied strongly and which were never substantiated).
One might have expected a similar outcry against Halong's proven and announced use of AsicBoost, but the parties that had previously condemned Bitmain remained mostly silent. Only an anonymous non-developer, Cobra-Bitcoin, co-owner of the bitcoin.org domain, spoke out on the Github pull request in [11], and Core developer Luke-jr spoke out against the use of the proposal on the Bitcoin network while consensus had not been reached on it [16].
Subsequent discussion on the bitcoin-dev list on this topic since March has been minimal and only concerned with technicalities of stratum protocol changes.

The bigger elephant in the room

It seems logical that either AsicBoost constitutes an exploitable weakness, and thus merits a CVE and measures taken to prevent its use on the Bitcoin network entirely.
Or it is not a problem and the CVE should be invalidated.
The Bitcoin Core project should use its consensus processes to arrive at a coherent decision.

Other problems raised by the use of overt AsicBoost

The Halong implementation uses version rolling of the nversion bits of the header. It reserves a subset of those bits for overt AsicBoost.
These bits are no longer available to BIP9, but there was no update of BIP9 proposed to address this impact.
This is a question of sensible procedures being followed (or not). The author did not find any review comment mentioning the lack of BIP9 specification update, which suggest a lack of thorough review on a proposal which dates back several months.
A minor issue is that the Core implementation warns when a certain proportion of unrecognized version bits are detected. This behavior can be triggered by the AsicBoost method used on the network.

Just read these two sentences and you'll understand why a SegWit Coin is not a Bitcoin: Satoshi: "We define an electronic coin as a chain of digital signatures." // Core: "Segregating the signature data allows nodes to avoid downloading it in the first place, saving resources."

Just read these two sentences and you'll understand why a SegWit Coin is not a Bitcoin: Satoshi: "We define an electronic coin as a chain of digital signatures." // Core: "Segregating the signature data allows nodes to avoid downloading it in the first place, saving resources."
This isn't me making this argument.
This is Core itself openly confessing that SegWit is not Bitcoin.
Because Core itself admits that "SegWit allows avoiding downloading the signatures" - which is the total opposite of when Satoshi said that the signatures are what defines Bitcoin.
So you can't have it both ways.
So, the difference between Bitcoin and SegWit could not be more extreme. After all, the only reason Bitcoin is secure is because it's based on cryptographic signatures. That's the security that has made the value of a bitcoin go from less than 0.01 USD to over 2500 USD in 8 years. And that's the same security which Core's alt-coin called SegWit allows you to "avoid dowloading" (and avoid validating). This is Core's words - not mine.
So SegWit is not Bitcoin. SegWit is an alt-coin. With less security than Bitcoin.
The two definitions below define totally different coins - one more secure, one less secure:
"We define an electronic coin as a chain of digital signatures."
~ Satoshi Nakamoto, the Bitcoin whitepaper
"Segregating the signature data allows nodes to avoid downloading it in the first place, saving resources."
~ Core
https://bitcoincore.org/en/2016/01/26/segwit-benefits/
https://archive.fo/f9Qgh
https://archive.fo/8AFon#selection-905.0-905.176
There is nothing more to debate.
  • SegWit Coin is not Bitcoin. (Because - as Core open and proudly confesses - Segwit "allow nodes to avoid downloading" the signatures - which are the very definition of a coin.)
  • Bitcoin Cash is Bitcoin. (Because Bitcoin Cash changes absolutely nothing about Bitcoin transactions - it just allows including more of them in a block - and this is also exactly the way Satoshi designed Bitcoin.)
The only people who don't understand these simple facts are lemmings who have been brainwashed by reading the subreddit r\bitcoin - which deletes posts quoting their enemy Satoshi Nakamoto:
CENSORED (twice!) on r\bitcoin in 2016: "The existing Visa credit card network processes about 15 million Internet purchases per day worldwide. Bitcoin can already scale much larger than that with existing hardware for a fraction of the cost. It never really hits a scale ceiling." - Satoshi Nakomoto
https://np.reddit.com/btc/comments/6l7ax9/censored_twice_on_rbitcoin_in_2016_the_existing/
The moderators of r\bitcoin have now removed a post which was just quotes by Satoshi Nakamoto.
https://www.reddit.com/btc/comments/49l4uh/the_moderators_of_rbitcoin_have_now_removed_a/
So you can take your pick.
  • You can either listen to Satoshi and use Bitcoin - now called Bitcoin Cash.
  • Or you can listen to Core and r\bitcoin and use SegWit coin - an alt-coin developed by Core, which (as they openly admit) "allows nodes to avoid downloading" - and avoid validating - the cryptographic signatures which are the only thing providing the security of Bitcoin.
I'm not the only one making these arguments.
Peter Rizun and Peter Todd are also saying the same thing: that SegWit provides less security than Bitcoin - precisely because (as Core admits) SegWit "allows nodes to avoid downloading" the signature data.
Those alarms sounded by Peter Rizun and Peter Todd were cited by a Bitcrust dev in an important article discussing the incorrectly designed incentives (and decreased security - and ultimately decreased value) of SegWit Coins versus plain old Bitcoins:
The dangerously shifted incentives of SegWit
https://bitcrust.org/blog-incentive-shift-segwit
UPDATE:
OK, lots of people have been attempting to write rebuttals here, talking about (SegWit) "full nodes" not validating blocks.
But that's not the danger being discussed here.
The danger is being discussed here is about (SegWit) miners not validating full blocks.
So I think I need to quote this excerpt from Peter Todd's message - which is hard to find in the OP, because to get to it, first you have to click on the link to the article by the Bitcrust dev at the bottom of the OP, titled "The dangerously shifted incentives of SegWit".
In his message, Peter Todd is making a very important warning about the dangers of "validationless mining" enabled by SegWit:
https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/pipermail/bitcoin-dev/2015-Decembe012103.html
Segregated witnesses and validationless mining
With segregated witnesses the information required to update the UTXO set state is now separate from the information required to prove that the new state is valid. We can fully expect miners to take advantage of this to reduce latency and thus improve their profitability.
We can expect block relaying with segregated witnesses to separate block propagation into four different parts, from fastest to propagate to slowest:
1) Stratum/getblocktemplate - status quo between semi-trusting miners
2) Block header - bare minimum information needed to build upon a block. Not much trust required as creating an invalid header is expensive.
3) Block w/o witness data - significant bandwidth savings, (~75%) and allows next miner to include transactions as normal. Again, not much trust required as creating an invalid header is expensive.
4) Witness data - proves that block is actually valid.
The problem is [with SegWit] #4 is optional: the only case where not having the witness data matters is when an invalid block is created, which is a very rare event. It's also difficult to test in production, as creating invalid blocks is extremely expensive - it would be surprising if an anyone had ever deliberately created an invalid block meeting the current difficulty target in the past year or two.
The nightmare scenario - never tested code never works
The obvious implementation of highly optimised mining with segregated witnesses will have the main codepath that creates blocks do no validation at all; if the current ecosystem's validationless mining is any indication the actual code doing this will be proprietary codebases written on a budget with little testing, and lots of bugs. At best the codepaths that actually do validation will be rarely, if ever, tested in production.
Secondly, as the UTXO set can be updated without the witness data, it would not be surprising if at least some of the wallet ecosystem skips witness validation.
With that in mind, what happens in the event of a validation failure? Mining could continue indefinitely on an invalid chain, producing blocks that in isolation appear totally normal and contain apparently valid transactions.

Got a 0 on an assignment about Bitcoin for it not being "age appropriate!"

Hello people of Reddit. I'm an 8th grade student of a Cyber School. I am very familiar with Bitcoin. I maintain my parents' 2 KnCMiner Jupiters. I have also traded it at an exchange. I'd say I'm pretty familiar with the coin.
In my English class, about 2 weeks ago, I was told to make a "how-to" document on something I know how to do. So, I made it on Bitcoin mining. I spent a few hours working on it, making sure it was the best thing I had ever worked on. Finally, I submitted it. Then, I checked the grade the next day.
After a document is submitted, it will say "0%" next to it, until it's graded. So, I when I saw this, I thought, "oh well. Still hasn't been graded." But I clicked on it just to make sure it wasn't actually a 0. Well, it was. I was so confused. I wondered if I submitted the wrong document. Now, you can see what the teacher said about the document. She said it was not "age appropriate!" I then got mad. As I read on, she said, for an 8th grade student, I should write about "cleaning my room" or "washing the car." Well, then i got EXTREMELY mad. Something I had worked so hard on, given a 0% because I had not written about something a 3rd grader knows how to do.
Then came yesterday. We had to write a follow-up assignment on the topic we wrote about. So, I headed the document stating the truth that many kids my age mine Bitcoin with their computers, and that many of my friends want to know how to also. I submitted the document and waited. So, went back to check the grade and said "0%." I think you already know what's going to happen next. I checked it and, big surprise, I got a 0. This time, it was a bit different. She said she understands how I "feel" that it's age appropriate. Then she said what I got very, very, angry at. She stated that if I write about abortion, drugs, sexuality, or any other non age appropriate topic, that it will be automatically given a 0% grade. So, yeah. Bitcoin's like killing babies and being gay, I guess?
Tell me what you guys think about this. If you want, you can vote this up to spread the word. But thanks for reading this guys. :)
EDIT:
So, you guys wanted to see the document. Well, here it is:
How to Mine Bitcoin
Short on money? Want to make some extra dough for the holiday season? Try Bitcoin! Bitcoin is an online digital currency. Right now, 1 Bitcoin is worth $640! But, did you know that you can create these coins, and help the network at the same time? This is a process called “mining,” and you can do it too! You're only going to need a few things for this. Firstly, I recommend not trying to mine with your home computer. You need a somewhat expensive machine called an ASIC. ASIC stands for application specific integrated circuit. This is just fancy talk for a very power computer that can only mine Bitcoin. Now, these range anywhere from $15 to $25,000, but I have a recommendation for you. It's called a KnCMiner Jupiter, and it's very fast. They're only $5K, which may seem expensive at first, but you can mine about half a Bitcoin PER DAY! That's over $300! You're also going to need a power supply. I recommend a Cooler Master V850. That's what I use. Next, you need an Ethernet cable, plugged into the router and miner. Finally you need a Bitcoin wallet. It can be on your computer or from blockchain.info. Get your address, beginning with a 1, ready! Now comes mining. First, find the miner's IP address. Go to your router's homepage – which is normally 192.168.1.1 – and look for something like “Connected Devices.” Then, it should be labeled “Jupiter” and then some numbers. Then go to the address that it says it is. This may be 192.168.1.145, or something like that. Now, it will say to log in. Log in with the username and password “admin.” This should bring a page up with numbers. You're done with that. Now, go to the mining tab. For the pool, use “mining.stratum.eligius.st:3334” without the quotes. Then, for the user, put your Bitcoin address. For the password field, put a simple “x.” It can be anything, but x is simple to remember. The pool could go down at any time, so be prepared! Get an account at btcguild.com, and make a worker. It shows this on the site. Then connect the miner using the stratum address. Also, be prepared for your earnings to slowly go down. There is a new difficulty every week, which it means it's harder to get a coin. But, don't worry! The price is going up. 2 years ago, it was worth $6! It's gone up over 100x since then! Also, that's the other thing. The price may crash. If it does, don't fret! The price will be back up over that in no time! One more thing before this ends. Bitcoin is NOT illegal. Nor is mining. The US government actually has no problem if you use Bitcoin, as long as you use it legally. There are multiple sites that you can buy contraband, like drugs and guns. Stay away from these sites! In conclusion, Bitcoin is an amazing thing. I mine it myself with a KnCMiner Jupiter. There may be some risks, but they're like any job. I've actually paid off the miner in less than 1 month! So, Bitcoin can really help our economy. It can help the WORLD economy! 
Also, thanks guys for all the support! :)

Your Profitability Graph will have spikes

There are two reasons that your profitability graph is so uneven:
I want to talk about the second reason. In fact, the second reason by itself is enough to make your profitability graph uneven.
I'm sure that I am repeating what many of you already know or have seen discussed here before. What helped me was to put some numbers to it. Maybe this will help someone else.
When your miner runs it is calculating hashes and checking for a valid share. When it finds one it sends it to the stratum server and gets paid. (I am making a simplifying assumption that every share you send to the stratum server is a valid share). This is how NH pays sellers. It is what they advertise on their page for sellers "Earn Bitcoins for every share" and it is how they explain it on their help pages. This is also how most everyone on this sub talks about it.
In this example, I'm going to talk about flipping coins or rolling dice instead of hashing. The main idea is the same - you are doing something where the outcome of each action (coin flip, roll of the dice or hash calculation) does not depend on what happened previously.

Flipping a coin

You get a job at the coin-flipping factory. Your job is to flip a coin. Your boss will pay you $1 every time the coin lands on heads (you get paid nothing if it lands on tails). You flip the coin at the steady rate of 3 flips per minute. So you expect to get paid, on average, $1.50 per minute. What do your per minute earnings look like at 3 flips per minute?
As expected, you made $1.50 per minute on average (0.125 * 0 + 0.375 * 1 + 0.375 * 2 + 0.125 * 3). A graph of 60 minutes of your payment history might look like:
6 +-+--------+-----------+-----------+-----------+-----------+---------+-+ | + + + + + + | | 5 +-+ +-+ | | | | 4 +-+ +-+ | | | | 3 +-+ : : : :: : : :: :: +-+ | :: : :: : : :: :: : : :: | | : : : : : : : : : :: : : :: | 2 +-::: : : : :: : : ::: : : : : : :: : : : :: : +-+ | : : : : : :::: : : : : : : :: :: : : :: : | | : :: :: : :: : : : : : : : :: : :::: : : | 1 +-: :: : ::::::: : : : : :: :: : : :: : : : : : +-+ |: :: :: : : :: :: : : :: : : : | |: +: : +: + :: : : + : + :: + 0 +-+--------+-----------+-----------+-----------+-----------+---------+-+ 10 20 30 40 50 60 
You were flipping the coin at a steady rate of 3 flips per minute and you got paid what you expected at an average rate of $1.50 per minute. The graph is still uneven.

Roll a die

You get bored of flipping coins and get a job at the dice-rolling factory. Your job is to roll a 4-sided die. Your boss will pay you $1 every time you roll a 1 or a 2 (you get paid nothing if you roll a 3 or a 4). Every time you roll a 1 or 2 you call your boss and tell him that you succeeded. You roll the die at a steady pace of 3 rolls per minute. So you expect to get paid, on average, $1.50 per minute. Turns out this job pays exactly the same as the coin flipping job.

Increase difficulty

Now your boss comes in and says that you are calling him too often. He is going to give you a more difficult task. (This is equivalent to NH increasing the stratum difficulty.) Now your job is to roll the 4-sided die, but you only get paid when you roll a 1. Since this task is twice as difficult your boss is now going to pay you twice as much for each successful roll. Every time you roll a 1, you will get paid $2. If you roll a 2, 3, or 4 you get paid nothing. You are rolling 3 times per minute, what do your per minute payments look like:
The difficulty increased, but so did the pay per successful roll. On average, you still made $1.50 per minute (0.421875 * 0 + 0.421875 * 2 + 0.140625 * 4 + 0.015625 * 6). A graph of 60 minutes of your payment history might look like:
6 +-+---------+-----------+-----------+----------+-----------+---------+-+ + + + : + + + + | : | 5 +-+ :: +-+ | :: | | :: | 4 +- : : : : :: : : : :-+ | : : : : : : : : : : : | | : : : : : : : : : : :: | 3 +-+ : : : : : : : : : ::-+ |: : :: :: : : : : : :: :: :: | |: : :: :: : : : : : :: :: : : | 2 +-+ : : ::: :::: : : : : : : : :::: ::: : : : : : :-+ | : : ::: :: : : : : : : : : : : : : : :| | : : : :: :: : : : : : : : : : :: : : : :| 1 +-+ ::: : : : : : ::: ::: : : : :: : : : +-+ | : : : : : : : : : : : :: : : : : :: :| + : :: +: : +: : : + : ::+ : : : + : :: :+ 0 +-+---------+-----------+-----------+----------+-----------+---------+-+ 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 
This graph looks more uneven than the previous. You get paid zero more often. The maximum you got paid in your best minute is also higher. In the end it evens out and you are still getting paid $1.50 per minute on average.

Conclusion

(edits: spelling, formatting, removed extra line from 2nd graph)

EasyMine: WTF Happened?

UPDATE: VTC mining on Easymine back to normal, payouts have resumed. Zero fees for the rest of the month.
Here's a more detailed response to https://old.reddit.com/vertcoin/comments/96z77t/psa_easy_mine_problem/ - bear with me and put on your nerd hat for a few mins.
The stratum server for all EasyMine pools is node-merged-pool - a merge mining fork of node-stratum-pool. See my repo here @ https://github.com/nzsquirrell/node-merged-pool
This is what miners connect to for work and to submit valid shares on the search for blocks. The information that is exchanged in hex digits, and the data coming back from the miner includes the time, the job, ExtraNonce2 and nonce (see https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Stratum_mining_protocol#mining.submit). All of these fields are used to notify the server of valid work exceeding a specific difficulty.
Hex digits are not case-sensitive. So 'FF00AA11' is the same as 'ff00aa11'. Both equate to decimal 4278233617. So for the purposes of construction a block header, it doesn't matter if the hex digits are uppercase, lowercase, or a mixture of both - it all works out the same, and produces the same hash. Hold this thought.
The stratum server knows what shares each miner has submitted, it keeps a track of all of the data in an array. It checks every time that work is submitted that the same work hasn't been submitted before whilst searching for the next block. If it was submitted, then the new submission is rejected as duplicate work.
Now, where this has all gone wrong is that the way the data is stored in this array was a string containing the four fields mentioned above. Strings are case-sensitive and when making comparisons 'FF00AA11' != 'ff00aa11', as well as 'ff00aA11' and 'ff00AA11' and so on.... This allowed our attacker to submit the same work many many times, altering only the case of the hex digits (he was doing it to the nonce, but the other fields are also susceptible to the attack), so the logic to check for duplicate work wasn't firing, the shares were valid (as they produced a valid hash above difficulty), and our attacker was faking most of his hash-rate. A lot. A shit-ton of it.
I have fixed this in my fork of node-stratum-pool - the fix is very easy, we just make all the characters lower case before testing for duplicate shares. See https://github.com/nzsquirrell/node-merged-pool/commit/9d068535d042516835f565a859852c7cf715da98 for my fix.
My big concern is that the other forks I've seen for node-stratum-pool are susceptible to the attack, and quite possibly other pool software is too possibly even p2pool? I've not looked. If someone can check and let me know and I'll update this. p2pool has been confirmed as resilient to this type of attack.
So, Who-The-F&*k did this. This is what I have so far:
He's used the following VTC and NIX addresses:
I've seen connections coming in from the following IP addresses:
He is still attacking EasyMine, but it's not having any effect now. Actually the server keeps banning him now as it's detecting that he's submitting too many invalid shares. Take that.
The path forward
I have a big mess to clean up, he's made off with about 652 VTC and about 3576 NIX, essentially stolen from you miners. I will see what I can do to recover some of this (not all of it has been paid to him yet), but there is going to be a substantial shortfall. Mr Attacker, feel free to PM me and we can arrange a settlement :)
Payouts on both the VTC & NIX pools are suspended until i can clean this up, I hope this won't take more than a couple of days.
Thanks.

Peter Todd warning on "SegWit Validationless Mining": "The nightmare scenario: Highly optimised mining with SegWit will create blocks that do no validation at all. Mining could continue indefinitely on an invalid chain, producing blocks that appear totally normal and contain apparently valid txns."

In this message (posted in December 2015), Peter Todd makes an extremely alarming warning about the dangers of "validationless mining" enabled by SegWit, concluding: "Mining could continue indefinitely on an invalid chain, producing blocks that in isolation appear totally normal and contain apparently valid transactions."
He goes on to suggest a possible fix for this, involving looking at the previous block. But I'm not sure if this fix ever got implemented.
https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/pipermail/bitcoin-dev/2015-Decembe012103.html
Segregated witnesses and validationless mining
With segregated witnesses the information required to update the UTXO set state is now separate from the information required to prove that the new state is valid. We can fully expect miners to take advantage of this to reduce latency and thus improve their profitability.
We can expect block relaying with segregated witnesses to separate block propagation into four different parts, from fastest to propagate to slowest:
1) Stratum/getblocktemplate - status quo between semi-trusting miners
2) Block header - bare minimum information needed to build upon a block. Not much trust required as creating an invalid header is expensive.
3) Block w/o witness data - significant bandwidth savings, (~75%) and allows next miner to include transactions as normal. Again, not much trust required as creating an invalid header is expensive.
4) Witness data - proves that block is actually valid.
The problem is [with SegWit] #4 is optional: the only case where not having the witness data matters is when an invalid block is created, which is a very rare event. It's also difficult to test in production, as creating invalid blocks is extremely expensive - it would be surprising if an anyone had ever deliberately created an invalid block meeting the current difficulty target in the past year or two.
The nightmare scenario - never tested code never works
The obvious implementation of highly optimised mining with segregated witnesses will have the main codepath that creates blocks do no validation at all; if the current ecosystem's validationless mining is any indication the actual code doing this will be proprietary codebases written on a budget with little testing, and lots of bugs. At best the codepaths that actually do validation will be rarely, if ever, tested in production.
Secondly, as the UTXO set can be updated without the witness data, it would not be surprising if at least some of the wallet ecosystem skips witness validation.
With that in mind, what happens in the event of a validation failure? Mining could continue indefinitely on an invalid chain, producing blocks that in isolation appear totally normal and contain apparently valid transactions.

Crypto Mining for Beginners. Is it really worth it?

Crypto Mining for Beginners. Is it really worth it?

Image from blokt.com
Mining cryptocoins is an arms race that rewards early adopters. You might have heard of Bitcoin, the first decentralized cryptocurrency that was released in early 2009. Similar digital currencies have crept into the worldwide market since then, including a spin-off from Bitcoin called Bitcoin Cash. You can get in on the cryptocurrency rush if you take the time to learn the basics properly.

Which Alt-Coins Should Be Mined?


Image from btcwarp.com
If you had started mining Bitcoins back in 2009, you could have earned thousands of dollars by now. At the same time, there are plenty of ways you could have lost money, too. Bitcoins are not a good choice for beginning miners who work on a small scale. The current up-front investment and maintenance costs, not to mention the sheer mathematical difficulty of the process, just doesn't make it profitable for consumer-level hardware. Now, Bitcoin mining is reserved for large-scale operations only.
Litecoins, Dogecoins, and Feathercoins, on the other hand, are three Scrypt-based cryptocurrencies that are the best cost-benefit for beginners.
Dogecoins and Feathercoins would yield slightly less profit with the same mining hardware but are becoming more popular daily. Peercoins, too, can also be a reasonably decent return on your investment of time and energy.
As more people join the cryptocoin rush, your choice could get more difficult to mine because more expensive hardware will be required to discover coins. You will be forced to either invest heavily if you want to stay mining that coin, or you will want to take your earnings and switch to an easier cryptocoin. Understanding the top 3 bitcoin mining methods is probably where you need to begin; this article focuses on mining "scrypt" coins.
Also, be sure you are in a country where bitcoins and bitcoin mining is legal.

Is It Worth It to Mine Cryptocoins?

As a hobby venture, yes, cryptocoin mining can generate a small income of perhaps a dollar or two per day. In particular, the digital currencies mentioned above are very accessible for regular people to mine, and a person can recoup $1000 in hardware costs in about 18-24 months.
As a second income, no, cryptocoin mining is not a reliable way to make substantial money for most people. The profit from mining cryptocoins only becomes significant when someone is willing to invest $3000-$5000 in up-front hardware costs, at which time you could potentially earn $50 per day or more.

Set Reosonable Expectations

If your objective is to earn substantial money as a second income, then you are better off purchasing cryptocoins with cash instead of mining them, and then tucking them away in the hopes that they will jump in value like gold or silver bullion. If your objective is to make a few digital bucks and spend them somehow, then you just might have a slow way to do that with mining.
Smart miners need to keep electricity costs to under $0.11 per kilowatt-hour; mining with 4 GPU video cards can net you around $8.00 to $10.00 per day (depending upon the cryptocurrency you choose), or around $250-$300 per month.
The two catches are:
1) The up-front investment in purchasing 4 ASIC processors or 4 AMD Radeon graphic processing units
2) The market value of cryptocoins
Now, there is a small chance that your chosen digital currency will jump in value alongside Bitcoin at some point. Then, possibly, you could find yourself sitting on thousands of dollars in cryptocoins. The emphasis here is on "small chance," with small meaning "slightly better than winning the lottery."
If you do decide to try cryptocoin mining, definitely do so as a hobby with a very small income return. Think of it as "gathering gold dust" instead of collecting actual gold nuggets. And always, always, do your research to avoid a scam currency.

How Cryptocoin Mining Works

Let's focus on mining scrypt coins, namely Litecoins, Dogecoins, or Feathercoins. The whole focus of mining is to accomplish three things:
- Provide bookkeeping services to the coin network. Mining is essentially 24/7 computer accounting called "verifying transactions."
- Get paid a small reward for your accounting services by receiving fractions of coins every couple of days.
- Keep your personal costs down, including electricity and hardware.

The Laundry List: What You Will Need to Mine Cryptocoins


https://preview.redd.it/gx65tcz0ncg31.jpg?width=1280&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=f99b79d0ff96fe7d529dc20d52964b46306fb070
You will need ten things to mine Litecoins, Dogecoins, and/or Feathercoins.
1) A free private database called a coin wallet. This is a password-protected container that stores your earnings and keeps a network-wide ledger of transactions.
2) A free mining software package, like this one from AMD, typically made up of cgminer and stratum.
3) A membership in an online mining pool, which is a community of miners who combine their computers to increase profitability and income stability.
4) Membership at an online currency exchange, where you can exchange your virtual coins for conventional cash, and vice versa.
5) A reliable full-time internet connection, ideally 2 megabits per second or faster speed.
6) A hardware setup location in your basement or other cool and air-conditioned space.
7) A desktop or custom-built computer designed for mining. Yes, you may use your current computer to start, but you won't be able to use the computer while the miner is running. A separate dedicated computer is ideal. Do not use a laptop, gaming console or handheld device to mine. These devices just are not effective enough to generate income.
8) An ATI graphics processing unit (GPU) or a specialized processing device called a mining ASIC chip. The cost will be anywhere from $90 used to $3000 new for each GPU or ASIC chip. The GPU or ASIC will be the workhorse of providing the accounting services and mining work.
10) A house fan to blow cool air across your mining computer. Mining generates substantial heat, and cooling the hardware is critical for your success.
11) You absolutely need a strong appetite of personal curiosity for reading and constant learning, as there are ongoing technology changes and new techniques for optimizing coin mining results. The most successful coin miners spend hours every week studying the best ways to adjust and improve their coin mining performance.

ShionCoin Console Basics

The following is a brief overview of the commands provided by the "shc" utility console program.
The utility program "shc" communication with the server (shcoind) are restricted to the local host that the service is running. You must use the stratum API in order to access the server from a remote machine.
A sub-set of all the commands are provided here. This guide attempts to concentrate on commonly used commands that are useful. Run "shc help" for a full list of commands. Run "shc help " for details about running that particular command.
You can enter an interactive mode by running "shc --prompt".
Run the daemon with "shcoind --debug" in order to print additional information to the log file (on linux, "/valib/share/shcoind.log") for diagnostic purposes.
ShionCoin "pub-key" coin addresses typically starts with "S" or "R". A "script address" will start with "1" and a seg-wit address will start with "3". Coin addresses are verified when entered on the command-line in order to ensure that the address is prudent in respect to the coin interface.
All fees for extended transactions, such as creating context and aliases, are either stored (for update purposes) in a local extended account and/or are provided as mining fees. You can use the "wallet.donate" command to intentionally create a transaction which includes a specified mining reward value.

Wallet Commands

The wallet commands provides capabilities to transfer funds and manage accounts. Each account can contain several coin addresses and has a counter-part "extended account" that is not visible.
Wallet Info: wallet.info
Display statistical and runtime information on wallet operations.
shc wallet.info { "version": 3010000, "walletversion": 60000, "balance": 658, "keypoololdest": 1517000561, "keypoolsize": 101 }
Create Coin Address: wallet.new
The "wallet.new" command is used to create a normal (non seg-wit) coin address and associate it with an account name. Coin addresses may be automatically generated for accounts, for example in order to return "change" in a fund transfer transaction. All change is directly returned to the associated account.
shc wallet.new test S2fzfzf1SStvaMzjGpCtYKxY3t8PXus9Ci
List Accounts: wallet.list
The "wallet.list" command provides a balance of all accounts in the coin wallet.
shc wallet.list { "": 0, "bank": 658, "system": 0 }
Three accounts are created by default. The "" account receives coinbase rewards which are then distributed to users based on their stratum stats. The "bank" account is a 0.1% cut of the rewards received from the stratum mining pool. The "system" account is currently reserved for a cpu-miner which attempts a single mining operation each time new task work is assigned to miners. The frequency of how often this occurs is based on tracking the "luck" of past attempts.
List Coin Addresses: wallet.listaddr
The "wallet.listaddr" command will list all of the coin addresses associated with an account.
shc wallet.listaddr test ["S2fzfzf1SStvaMzjGpCtYKxY3t8PXus9Ci"]
Create Transaction: wallet.send
The "wallet.send" command is the primary method of sending funds.
All ShionCoin transactions are sent with at least the 0.0001 SHC minimum fee. Providing the minimum fee is provided, any fee can is permitted and affects the priority of the transaction.
shc wallet.send bank S2fzfzf1SStvaMzjGpCtYKxY3t8PXus9Ci 10 307711dace8c0583b744af8acd1df2073e36b0c7a54b8830a15ae146f8c22ddb
Test Create Transaction: wallet.tsend
You can "test send" a transaction in order to determine the aproximate fee and size that would result.
shc wallet.tsend bank SLbnKamvSx8FhaBNpHUwffFDLZ16J8phdX 10 { "amount": 10, "tx-amount": 98.999900, "size": 300, "virt-size": 226, "fee": 0.000100, "inputs": 1, "priority": 1085539000000 }
Create Batch Transaction(s): wallet.bsend
The "wallet.bsend" command allows you to transfer funds that are more complicated than would be permitted in a single transaction. Multiple transactions will be created, as neccessary, in order to send the specified coin value. The total value commited to be sent may be lower than the value requested under certain circumstances.
Create Certified Transaction: wallet.csend
The "wallet.csend" associated a pre-created certificate with the coin transfer. The certificate may be used to associate with the certificate, or provide a method to identity the source of the funds.
shc wallet.csend bank SLbnKamvSx8FhaBNpHUwffFDLZ16J8phdX 10
Create Stamp Transaction: wallet.stamp
The "wallet.stamp" command allows you to create a short message (up to 135 characters), or reference a geodetic location, to associate with a local coin address. The stamp transaction is the exclusive method of claiming spring matix location coins. Creating a stamp in the format "geo:," will result in a single SHC coin, once processed on the network, being rewarded for all locations not yet discovered in the spring matrix. A minimum transaction fee (0.0001) is applied for each stamp transaction created.
Use the "ctx.findloc" command in order to search for locations active in the sprint matrix.
Validate Address: wallet.donate
Donated coins are added to the upcoming block reward. Donations may be optionally associated with a certificate. The maximum donation value in a single transaction is 500 coins.

Create String Context: ctx.findloc
Search for a location by it's name or with geodetic cordinates.
The "ctx.findloc" will scan an area and attempt to find a location within it. This area includes a span of about 100 sq. miles. The closest location with the smallest precision found will be returned. In addition, geodetic information provided by the share library is also utilized.
shc ctx.findloc "geo:46.9,114.2" { "name": "missoula, mt", "summary": "Montana", "zone": "America/Denver", "code": "MUNI", "country": "US", "geo": "46.94000,114.04000", "type": "Municipal Zone", "springable": "false" } shc ctx.findloc "Missoula, MT" { "name": "missoula, mt", "summary": "Montana", "zone": "America/Denver", "code": "MUNI", "country": "US", "geo": "46.94000,114.04000", "type": "Municipal Zone", "springable": "false" }
Note: The "springable" value denotes whether the geodetic location can be claimed in the SHC spring matrix (see "wallet.stamp").
Create String Context: ctx.getloc
Print detailed information about a particular location by it's name or geodetic cordinates.
The "ctx.getloc" command requires specific cordinates to be specified when a latitude and longitude is specified.
ctx.getloc "Missoula Creek" ctx.getloc geo:46.9846,114.1213
Note: The "springable" value denotes whether the geodetic location can be claimed in the SHC spring matrix (see "wallet.stamp").
Create String Context: ctx.setstr
Create a text format context value. This establishes a simple name=value relationship.
Context names are stored as hash keys. Therefore, the string name of the context key must be known before-hand in order to perform the lookup. A small label is also provided as part of the context record which includes a snippet (or all of) the context name.
Context records are signed against the coin address that paid to generate the transaction. Context transaction typically cost about 25 SHC or less to create. A context will expire two years after the date at which it is either created or updated. The owner can update a context by creating a new one with the same name as a pre-existing one. The "context hash" that identifies a context is also the key hash of it's label. The context is shown as part of the transaction details.
shc ctx.setstr test "test name" "test value" { "version": 3, "label": "ab5b128ce3674f81f0271efbbbb191fed56e9a80 test name (1zgfTHd5BQA)", "expire": "Mar 23 08:28:39 2020", "flags": 10244, "signature": "e0539d3ecb54c5c0a29ccd69f0b03dfdfb58bc24", "hash": "ab5b128ce3674f81f0271efbbbb191fed56e9a80", "valuesize": 10, "valuecrc": "1zgfTHd5BQA", "tx": "0dbf21191091e33ad7be3b1ce1983ffffdbedeb804e3ce934021f0fad038d50e" }
Create Geodetic Context: ctx.setloc
The "ctx.setloc" command creates contextual information about a specific place.
The command includes information about a location zipcode, name, and description. In addition, an optional place type code, country code, and web-url can be specified.
The place type corrosponds to one of the codes returned from the "ctx.loctypes" command.
This command has two different modes. One corrosponds to giving a name to a particular geodetic latitude and longitude corindate, and the other includes providing details about that particular location. A single location (as specified by latitude and longitude) may have multiple names, but it limited to a single set of details. Although some common places may be reserved from use (such as common city names), the application of detailed information to a geodetic location comes on a first-come-first-serve basis. Note that context information expires after two years.
The size of the area being referenced is dependent on the place type specified. For example, "AREA" spans roughly 30 sq. miles, while "SPOT" only spans 8 sq. feet. This precision is used in relation to geodetic lookups performed.
shc ctx.setloc test geo:46.9846,114.1213 "Bitterroot Creek" STM US shc ctx.setloc test "Missoula Creek" geo:46.9846,114.1213
Create Identity Context: ctx.setid
Create a binary context from the raw command-line argument specified.
Create Binary Context (raw): ctx.setbin
Create a binary context from the raw command-line argument specified.
Create Binary Context (file): ctx.setfile
Create a binary context from the absolute path specified.
Print Location Types: ctx.loctypes
Print out all suported location type codes for use with the "ctx.setloc" command.
[{ "name": "AREA", "desc": "General Area", "prec": 1 }, { "name": "MT", "desc": "Mountain", "prec": 1 }, .. }

Address Alias Commands

Alias Info: alias.info
Print the current fee to create an alias transaction and the total number of alias records in the system.
shc alias.info { "fee": 31.250000, "total": 1 }
Create Address Alias: alias.pubaddr
Create a persistent public association with a name and a coin address. Once confirmed, the coin address can be referenced as "@" in command-line operations.
When a coin address is specified the alias label will be published onto the block chain in reference. If the alias label already exists, then a transfer will occur providing you are the original owner.
A coin address will be automatically created if none is specified. Only "pub-key" coin addresses are currently supported. An alias will expire after 12 years.
An alias cost around 30 SHC to create and will decrease over time.
shc alias.pubaddr test S2fzfzf1SStvaMzjGpCtYKxY3t8PXus9Ci { .. "alias": { "version": 1, "label": "test", "expire": "Mar 21 09:37:40 2030", "type": 30, "addr": "S2fzfzf1SStvaMzjGpCtYKxY3t8PXus9Ci", "type-name": "pubkey" } }

shc cert.list test { "test certificate": "8069f1bbfb435cfa1efdb454684446528343b809" }
Certificate Info: cert.new
The "cert.new" command is used to create a new certificate on the block-chain. The certificate than may be used to derive other certificates or dispense licences. The certificate may have an optional fee specified that will be required to derive or license it.
A certificate can either be designated for issueing other certificates or granting licenses, but not both. Either form of the certificate may be used in order to donate or send a certified coin transfer.
A certificate is signed against a private key that is generated from the associated extended account coin address. You may optionally specify a hexadecimal seed to use for generating the private key. The certificate's private key is not stored in a database or a transaction, and requires the original coin address to be present in the local wallet to be determined. The public key is provided as part of the certificate transaction, and can be used in order to verify the integrity of the associated signature.
The average fee for registering a new certificate is initially about 15 SHC and will decrease over time. The details of the certificate are visible in the underlying transaction that it was generated in.
The frame-work of the certificate is designed to be compatible with the x509 format. See the "shcert" share library utility program for more information on exporting x509 certificate created on the ShionCoin block-chain. Certificates may also be used to provide licensing authentication to run or provide features to programs using the share library "esig" functionality (see the "shesig_verify()" function).
Note that the certificate may contain identifying information such as the originating coin address and, when available, the geodetic location.
shc cert.new test "test certificate" { "version": 1, "flag": 17, "txid": "18d0a73c96af3dd211f27e4ada898e13b4cf25223da2591289edb8a1e86f1129", ..

Certificate Info: cert.derive
Derive a certificate from another certificate. You can optionally specify a fee to be associated with the new certificate, and a fee may be required if one is associated with the parent certificate.
Certificate Info: cert.license
Generate a license from a certificate. A license represents authorization to use a particular product and typically requires a fee to be paid. You can optionally specify a hexadecimal seed to be used when creating the certificate's private key.
Certificate Info: cert.export
Exports the private key information from the extended account that is used to claim ownership over a particular certificate.
Ownership and management of a certificate depends on having specific coin address key(s) in the coin wallet. Exporting a certificate provides JSON formatted content which can be used with "wallet.import" command to attain ownership of a certificate.

EOT - Encryption of things

 **EOT - Encryption of things** 
There is a huge surge in devices attached to the internet, known as the Internet of Things, and it is estimated that over 80 Billion devices will be connected to the internet by 2025, from industrial machines to devices in our home. The constant hacking and cyber attacks have increased not only the demand but the necessity of secure solutions. Our privacy and digital footprint are at risk.
[b]Some examples where encryption plays a role:
[b]Secure messaging - To make messages truly secure we need a process whereby a cryptography can be applied to encrypt transaction.
[b]Secure calling - Secure calling is a process whereby the caller and the recipient of the call are identified and linked via a blockchain enabled cryptocurrency transfer, again creating public and private encryption keys making the call truly private.
[b]Secure media storage - To safely and securely store media a process is required where 1.) Access to the media is encrypted via public and private keys of the person wanting to store the media. 2.) The media itself needs to be encrypted with a set of encryption keys and 3.) Media storage costs need to be paid via cryptocurrency
[b]Secure browsing - To browse the internet securely we need to create a process of verification whereby nodes on the blockchain can verify websites as “safe”. Furthermore, the entire process needs to be encrypted as well.
[b]Verification - This is one of the most important uses of a blockchain, we can verify websites as in the example above but also various other things such as identity, title and ownership, date stamps and source of products as with the verification of the source of agricultural or other products. These are just a few examples. All of this data needs to be encrypted as well.
[b]“Smart home” security - Wi-Fi is often used for remote monitoring and control. Home devices, when remotely monitored and controlled via the Internet, are an important constituent of the Internet of Things - all needing encryption, otherwise, hackers paradise.
[b]EOT in the future - The examples we mentioned above are only “scratching the surface” of where these technologies are applicable and who knows what will be invented in future. Google, Apple and Uber are all testing cars that drive themselves. A major issue with this technology is again the security aspect and the need to protect against hacking and who want’s to get into a spaceship to Mars that might be hacked or hijacked by ransomware?
So the future for the [b]“Encryption of Things” – EOT, looks very interesting indeed and the role of crypto currencies in this will be major.

[quote author=Story777 link=topic=2091616.msg21890405#msg21890405 date=1505551168]
You have been keeping a great secret.
I've been doing a bit of research with the technology behind this coin. It looks like ALOT of research has gone into this tech, since about 2004 and shortly after a patent for this P2P system was quickly issued.
Bitvault (https://swissbankinyourpocket.com/product/bitvault/) who are using the worlds first blockchain phone as a secure communication device and ultimately taking [font=Verdana][b]encryption[/b][/font] to the Internet Of Things (IoT) keeping our personal and business data secure. All this is done using [b]EOT coin [/b](Encryption of Things).
In todays world insecure devices are rampant. Here are a couple of links about the CIA being able to use insecure devices to 'cause accidents' http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/cyber-life/sd-me-wikileaks-cia-20170307-story.html and https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/innovations/wp/2017/03/08/what-we-know-about-car-hacking-the-cia-and-those-wikileaks-claims/
It's scary to think a legal entity could posses such power over life. Just the mere fact alone the governing authority can request phone records (e.g. txt msgs, voice msgs or eavesdropping) proves most if not all telecommunication companies do not encrypt, otherwise whats the point on requesting the information!? (legal or not).
Commercially sensitive information needs to be protected and most importantly in my opinion our [font=Verdana][b]rights[/b][/font] and the privacy of all citizens of the human race need to be protected.
From my understanding BitVault is a platform for reference data. This would be data that is stored for compliance reasons such as e-mails, invoicing systems and check imaging (e.g. high quality imaging for x-rays, MRI scans etc) and a prototype was developed in 2004. This would means massive amount of data storage is required with fail-safe systems so a authorised user could access this information very very quickly.
Three goals were needed to be achieved: Low cost, high reliability/availability and simplicity. This is the birth of Bitvault via EOT.
Bitvault ultimately stores immutable objects with each new version being updated and identified with a 160-bit key.
System stability is very important and must be immune to failure sequences. Parallel repair via indexing is one of the many strengths Bitvault has been able to demonstrate.
BitVault is a back-end system that uses [u][b]Applications[/b][/u] to catalog object ID's. Using a catalog utility and indexing within an application prevented scalability bottlenecking under heavy loads.
Fast forward 3 years to 2007 a very important decision was to [u][b]decentralise[/b][/u] BitVaults system. This in my opinion is one of the fundamental principles of cryptocurrency - [u][b]No one entity or person has any control of the data stored and only the authorised user can access this info[/b][/u]. Ultimate Security and thus personal safety (see above articles CIA hacks). BitVault using applications have been able to use provable communication and data storage with ease of retrieval with vital security measures.
BitVault is not alone in researching solutions for security for the IoT, such as Venti and the like are making progress, however, BitVault is 'head and shoulders' above the few competitors and are already offering practical working solutions on the market with huge scalability that is cost effective.
Well Done BitVault, well done EOT your secret is out and let the world embrace.

I have had a response in Slack and it has satisfied my questions. Thank-you.
For everyone information here it is:
The currency was created with 200 Million EOT total supply on 7 July 2017 [ we showed it to the community a London Fintech week with the demonstration of the BitVault - fintechweek.com ]
100 Million was pre-mined and another 100 Million are currently being mined, 1 block every 90 seconds @ 100 coins per block.
So the pre-mined coins were listed on waves as a token so that it can create a market for the coins while we are working to get listed on other exchanges.
The 100 Million coins listed were distributed in several ways. Firstly, this was not an ICO because our business is already funded via private capital. We wanted to get the currency distributed a widely as possible. So most of the initial coins were given away to a number of interested parties. We distributed this to our whole development team, business partners, employees as well as to the waves and other communities. So we did not sell all these coins for the current price, most of it was given away for free to people that have an interest in our products and business. The price now is formed by whoever owns these coins.
The tokens on the exchange is really a representation of the currency and as such has value because it can be interchanged, just like Bitcoin and Ethereum are on the waves exchange. This whole process is explained on page 4 of the waves whitepaper, I think they call it an asset-to-asset exchange which makes it possible to list any asset that exist on waves. Unfortunately waves only has gateways currently for Bitcoin, Ethereum, Waves, Euro and USD, so we have to develop our own gateway, which will be available on Nov 1.
So to clarify 100,000,000 tokens costing $190M were not sold. It is a combination of airdrops, private sales and sales on the exchange.
Some EOT coins are needed because: "A lot of EOT will be distributed through our devices. For example our encrypted routers are pre-loaded with EOT, so we need that stock and it will be distributed that way".
And with the response to tokens on the Waves Exchange "This is how Bitcoin works on waves: - They created 21 Million BTC Tokens.. When you deposit Bitcoin into waves account, you receive an equal amount of tokens which you can either trade or even sent via the waves blockchain to another user.. Once you withdraw your tokens are exchanged for BTC and you receive it back into your BTC wallet.. Exactly the same for USD or EUR - You don't send Euro's to another client on waves if you transfer - you send a token that represents EUR -- This works exactly the w0083".
These are the answers I was looking for and make a lot of sense now. This is indeed an exciting project. :)
It's time to trade....
Now I have one question left....
Is there anyone using NiceHash to mine this coin?? I keep being disconnected because of the difficulty being too low. Can any one help?
[quote author=Shews link=topic=2091616.msg22876983#msg22876983 date=1507755312] EOT (coin) is now tradable on the CryptoBridge Decentralised Exchange, you can sign up below.
Please note this is for the EOT COIN ONLY, do not send tokens to this dex. This is a secure means to trade with the backend being on a blockchain. It is still in beta stage but has been working flawlessly so far. If you'd like more info I will post their website link is below.
https://wallet.crypto-bridge.org/?r=388691
You can sign up with a local wallet mode, meaning you are the only one with access to your keys, this is most secure. There is also the option to sign up with and account if you require access to you funds on the go.

EMC2 FORK - Dev Update

https://twitter.com/einsteiniumcoin/status/1098320099600228352 From Matija Mitic, core EMC2 dev:
'After almost a year of, on and off, work on FORKING EMC2 into GPU friendly chain, Ethash Algo combined with Einsteinium Core is now stable project. Major vulnerabilities and minor bugs are removed and wallet is proved to be resistant on malicious attacks related with algo change.
Team was analyzing different possible solutions for mining pool implementation. Combination of well proved algo such as Ethash and stable, long term project such as EMC2, involved some new implementation difficulties. Einsteinium is Bitcoin like project that uses different block structure unlike Ethereum. New attributes are added to original block structure in order to support Ethash algo. In similar way, existing Ethereum Stratum pool is modified to work with EMC2 RPC API and vice versa. New stratum pool proved proof of concept and support multiple types of workers that use Ethminer, but still requires testing with various ranges of hash power with coin difficulty monitoring.
Adding new attributes into original block structure requires EMC2 chain replication in order to keep funds to original users wallets. Team is now working on this delicate piece of code that will converts original EMC2 chain into new one, that will be used for new coin.
Analysis of the previous problems with Wormhole feature, shows it’s main disadvantages which is the main reason why this feature was excluded from EMC2. But Wormhole was a very strong idea of rewarding loyal miners which should not be excluded. With Komodo support, already tested dPoW and some changes into block reward implementation, great Wormhole will be back again! Developers are now working on new implementation which will combine good old features with some major improvements.
At the end of preparing new coin, it’s needed to perform some regular fork changes into wallet implementations that will make new coin unique in a crypto world, regardless of some major and already unique changes described here.'
Full EMC2 FORK 'Blue Paper' and Timelines to be released on March 14th, Einstein's birthday.

SOLO Mining setup instructions. CCminer Nevermore and QT / CLI wallet.

First, I do not solo mine myself, so I can not confirm if this setup pays. I do not have the hash to even consider trying. I can confirm ccminer gets work from the wallet and cards get hot. Enjoy!
 
EDIT: Setup tested on coin with lower difficulty. I got paid.
 
 
 
rpcuser=user rpcpassword=pass rpcbind=192.168.1.100:8766 rpcallowip=192.168.1.1/24 server=1 
 
Replace user, pass and ips to match your setup. You can make up your own usepass. You need to use the same ones when configuring ccminer. 192.168.1.100 needs to be changed to the IP of the machine running the wallet. This setup allows connections from all ips in the range 192.168.1.X
 
 
:mine ccminer.exe -a x16r -o http://192.168.1.100:8766 -u user -p pass -i 21 --no-longpoll --no-getwork --no-stratum --coinbase-addr=YOUR_RVN_ADDRESS_HERE ping -n 30 127.0.0.1 goto :mine 
 
Replace user, pass and IP to match your setup. The IP is to the machine running the wallet and the usepass are the ones you set in the first config file. And don't forget to add your RVN-address.

Bitcoin Private mining pool https://www.bitpoolmining.com

Bitcoin Private mining pool https://www.bitpoolmining.com
 
Hello fellow BTCP nerds. We are a group of 4 software developers that are all miners. We decided to use our development background to start a pool and slowly add features that we wanted to see in other pools. Any feedback or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We have also built an open source GPU mining/monitoring software app that we call BPM that is also BTCP compatible https://bitpoolmining.com/bpm. Our goal has been to build cool software and to help the community whenever we can. We set out to build software for 'one click mining' that can help ease setup for BTCP mining for new/small miners and also provide tools powerful enough for mining farms.

ANON Development Update (Feb 26th 2019)

ANON Development Update (Feb 26th 2019)
https://medium.com/@nytmarecrypto/anon-development-update-feb-26th-2019-657228e477d
In the spirit of continued transparency, the ANON community admin and Development teams have begun regularly cadenced conference calls to stay abreast of development news, address questions and share community feedback. This consistent feedback loop aims to provide an aggregate platform for 2-way communication with the community. Meetings will spotlight current development focus, next tasks in queue, technical updates, Q&A, and community feedback.

Notes / Recap January & February 2019 Deliverables, Tasks, Open Issues

What is the current status of the zk-SNARKs vulnerability fix?Significant progress has been made on the zk-SNARKs vulnerability fix and the upgrade is pacing to deliver on schedule prior to the end of March. The majority of the required code has now been incorporated. With many libraries changed, the next week will primarily focus on smoothing out errors in compiling. Once smoothed out, the upgrade will then enter the testing phase. You can read more about our plan to address and timeline here.
Will the vulnerability fix have any impact on the planned blockheight or spork activations scheduled?No, the fix has no impact on activations such as Superblocks go live or Development Fund reward split allocation. However, spork timing may be altered as required by network circumstances. i.e. the reward split change activation was delayed as we worked to get miner configuration corrected.
How is ANON pacing with the development roadmap?The team has over delivered and is pacing ahead of schedule on the development roadmap.
In January the team delivered all components of PHASE 1, and was also able to incorporate SPORKS ahead of schedule. ( a March / PHASE 2 component )
  • Masternode Collateral Change
  • New Reward Block Split
  • Superblocks code
  • Governance Changes
  • Sporks * (delivered ahead of schedule)
PHASE 2 components scheduled for MARCH are on pace with Sporks already completed and Superblock control and distribution ready to go live at block 43800. With the urgency of the zk-SNARKs vulnerability taking precedence — Sapling components have swapped places with Masternode+for the period, essentially pulling the update earlier. This will leave fleshing out what remains of Sapling and Masternode+ for the focus of the two months in PHASE 3.

What were the final results of the Coin Burn?At the end of January 2019, ANON hit the long anticipated blockheight of 37,000. This marked the end of the ANON claim period from BTC and ZCL holdings. Since September 10th 2018 — the following were transmuted into ANON:
5,012,100.034231079 BTC1,733,174.679775752 ZCL-T (transparent)8,633.47816196002 ZCL-Z (shielded)
A grand total of 6,753,908.19216905 ANON were distributed to the holders of Bitcoin and ZClassic. From the ANON blockheight of 37,000 onwards, no further claims may be made. Combined with ANON mined post fork, the total circulating supply of ANON is 7.97M (at the time of writing). The current supply is live on the ANON block explorer.
Since the remaining ANON was left unclaimed, approximately 24 million were forever ‘burned’ (removed).
This leaves ANON’s MAX Supply at 20,228,644. It is important to note that this is the upper potential level, and may not be reached due to further burning of unused Superblock rewards.
7.97M ANON Circulating Supply (at time of writing)20.2M ANON Max Supply (upper limit)
Was the blockchain stoppage on Feb 14th avoidable?No — The Superblock allocation activation at Blockheight # 39420 created some nuance that needed to be adjusted by the miners. This was an unforeseen issue that was not apparent until the Superblock allocation went live. It was promptly identified, clarified, and the chain moved again.
What were the blockchain issues that occurred earlier in the month?Two weeks prior to the Block 37,000 changes, ANON developers released ANON v2.0.0. On the 5th of February, ANON began experiencing blockchain issues. It was observed that after block 37,000, blocks were being mined without issuing payments to Masternodes.
This was an issue the team expected, and were prepared to issue a SPORK (SPORK_8_MASTERNODE_PAYMENT_ENFORCEMENT) to combat this. The function of the spork was to ENFORCE masternode payments, and effectively BAN the miner from the network. Unfortunately, when the ANON core team issued the SPORK, they discovered that nodes on the network were not enforcing the payment check.
To bring the network back to normal operation, ANON v2.1.0 was released, and all relevant groups (such as Exchanges, Wallets, Mining Pools etc.) were advised of the update. In some cases, nodes remained on the wrong chain, and the development team subsequently issued ANON v2.1.1 on the 7th of February. Once the updates were applied and hash put back into the network, the ANON blockchain resumed normal functionality.
Has ANON worked to refine the process for the mining community?Yes — The ANON development team completed work ahead of the Block 41,000 implementation of the development fund reward split activation. As most pools utilize “s-nomp”, the team had issued a pull request on GITHUB to ensure that the transition occurs as seamlessly as possible. The pull request has been merged. The spork activation occurred with network monitoring in place, and the development fund allocation is now live.
What is the status of the Co-Pay Wallet?An updated BETA release is scheduled to release for testing internally next week. The wallet now has full functionality of Z transactions, full node capability and Governance and Masternode visibility tools (not creation). An updated release with full Masternode and Governance controls within the wallet are in scope for a MAAPR release once focus can shift away from the priority zk-SNARKS vulnerability fix. The team is currently working to resolve a user experience issue on Windows where unpacking in a directory path with a space in it is causing problems.
What are the statuses of our existing Exchanges? At the time of writing, Cryptopia have yet to issue a formal statement regarding the path forward towards either re-opening, or releasing ANON held. It is our understanding that the ANON held there remains in their wallet and was not compromised. Recent posts on their socials indicate they are working to clarify solvency and the way forward.
Trade Satoshi has placed the ANON wallet “under maintenance” prior to the coin burn and maintained that the update was in progress with the wallet team for weeks through multiple contacts. After the Zcash exploit came to light we received further clarification that the wallet would now remain closed until the vulnerability was addressed by the ANON team. They were notified that the fix is in progress and our ETA.
IDAX continues to be an exchange available to those wishing to trade ANON. Recently IDAX had published noticed that ANON had been scheduled for delisting. After further discussion the exchange has opted to retain ANON for the time being, but expressed their desire to see increased trading volume.
Safe Trade has has done exceedingly well throughout, updating within hours of new code being released, and keeping the community informed. They are establishing themselves as a very responsive and reputable exchange of choice. Currently, they are maintaining manual deposits of ANON until more is known about the Zcash exploit fixes to be made.
What is the status of the Coinone Exchange Listing?It has been confirmed that the exchange does not currently, nor ever did, have ANON slotted for new listing. Unfortunately, the Coinone listing negotiation was falsified by bad actors. Though diligence was taken to verify sources; the scammers had a convincing and sophisticated network to falsify their credibility. This combined with intentional obfuscation under the guise of a language barrier proved to be a challenge to detect. A total of 1.5 BTC was paid for listing, which is now unrecoverable. Though regrettable — key learnings from this experience have been gleaned and adopted to help navigate future negotiations and further mitigate risk.
Are there plans for additional exchanges?The team has made initial contact and submitted application for a select group of exchanges believed to be adequate for the project’s needs. Some of these suggestions have come directly from the community. As responses are received, we will juxtapose these opportunities with the market conditions and evaluate the best course of action. We want to ensure ANON has the liquidity necessary for trading, accumulation and wider exposure. We also want to ensure care is taken so that the existing exchange volume is augmented and not further partitioned.
Can CoinMarketCap be updated to reflect the correct circulating supply?We have submitted the information and API feeds for CMC to update our supply metrics. However, the closure of Cryptopia and maintenance of Trade Satoshi have presented obstacles for the update to circulating supply to occur. Daily volume on tracked exchanges ( SafeTrade is not tracked at this time ) have been insufficient for CMC to derive meaningful market capitalization.
Furthermore, there is a required minimum of 3 active exchanges to give the price metrics the weight and spread to be a true representation of the market. When exchange liquidity resumes, be it by re-opening or new sources, we will revisit and have updated.
What is the SUPERBLOCK funding mechanism?With the activation at blockheight 39420, 2.5 ANON (5% of the block reward) will not be mined with each block. A larger “Superblock” will generate at the end of each period containing this withheld ANON to be automatically distributed to passing proposals for the cycle ( > 25% absolute YES ). The first Superblock will generate beginning block 43,800. Subsequent superblocks will generate every 4380 blocks (approx. 30 days).
When will Governance control of SUPERBLOCKS go live?Direct governance control of Superblock funding is scheduled to go live after block 43800.
When will the Development Fund portion (10%) of the reward split go live? The development fund reward split activation occurred via Spork at block 41000.
Community Request — Can the ANON Block Explorer be updated to reflect the block finding pool? The ANON Block Explorer API has been updated to reflect the “MINED BY” party. This was a request made by the mining community and relayed to the development team.
Community Request — Can the ANON Block Explorer be updated to reflect the CIRC and MAX supply? This has been completed and can be viewed on the Block Explorer “Status” page. https://explorer.anonfork.io/insight/status
Community Request — Can the Masternode treasury funding be moved to a public address? The masternode treasury funding is now located on a public wallet: https://explorer.anonfork.io/insight/address/AnbBKBUXh7GTx7DpHMydoa5EDQdn4Jp4rUB
Community Question - Why was the genesis block so small?At the time of the fork, ANON had switched to a new equihash algorithm that was much harder to find a solution for. Subsequently the developers decreased the difficulty on the genesis block to minimize the time it would take.
Community Question — Was ANON susceptible to the BTCP Hack exploit?ANON was not affected by the issue that caused the BTCP hack. Although our code did present the same vulnerability — it was only actionable during a brief period when the set of airdrop blocks were initially mined. We are well beyond that point in time. The vulnerability was never exploited and it cannot be actioned now. Likewise, our mining of the airdrop UTXO was done internally in a closed circle that did not invite external miners. In the case of BTCP, external miners inserted additional records in the UTXO when the commit went through. We have run a script to analyze ANON’s UTXOs and have confirmed that no additional UTXOs were added.
Will the team implement any measures to address the current hashrate?A proprietary official ANON mining pool is currently in development / testing. More details to come in the near future.
Can the official ANON website be updated / redesigned? A full update to the ANON website has been in progress and will work to incorporate more of our available assets and resources. Anticipated release in early MARCH.
Will the white paper be updated to reflect the many changes since being written? A white paper refresh has been completed and is undergoing additional rounds of edits. Anticipated release in conjunction with the website in early MARCH.
Will there be another ANON bounty program?Current resources are deployed on the vulnerability fix, exchange liquidity and development pathing. If another bounty were to occur it would be when resolution to these issues come into focus.
What is the status of Bounty 2.0 distribution?Bounty 2.0 ended December 30th 2018. Due to the Cryptopia hack, we asked for wallet verification from all participants before sending ANON earned. Delayed distribution began Jan 20th 2019. Verification and distribution will remain an open process through March 30th 2019, allowing participants 10 weeks to follow instructions to confirm details and receive their ANON.
On March 31st 2019 all unverified wallets and unclaimed ANON will be forfeited.
Current Bounty 2.0 Distribution:
  • 61% of all earning wallets have been paid
  • 90% of all ANON earned has been sent

Doge miners beware of your hashpower being redirected/hijacked, ongoing attack.

I was mining Doge on multipool.us today and noticed one of my miners not reporting any hashrate on the pool's site. Looking at CGminer I noticed the stratum address changed from multipools to an IP, 190.97.165.179 and network difficulty switched to 1024. Restarting the miner made it connect normally again.
Long story short; searching around on bitcoin talk I found a thread with many others mining other pools and wafflepool complaining of being hijacked. It seems someone has found a way to exploit the client.reconnect stratum functionality to force cgminer clients to reconnect to the above IP and steal your hash time. Its not clear how they are managing to force pool stratums to do that but it sure is working.
Kalroth provided a quick fix for cgminer that allows you to ignore reconnect from stratum, likewise I would block that IP on your firewalls just in case.

Hope this helps some other fellow shibes.

About Dorfcoin

Let's get the technicals out of the way:
Name- Dorfcoin
Symbol- DORF
Algorithm- Scrypt (POW)
Block Target- 2.5 minutes
Total Coins- 84 million
Mining Reward- 20 coins per block (Halving at 210000 Blocks)
Retarget Difficulty- 2016 Blocks
Infrastructure- Lite version of Bitcoin
Premine- 5% (To cover server fees, bounties, and unforeseen expenses)
F.A.Q.
Who are we and why are we doing this?
We are a duo (I'm Andrew, Community Manager and she is Priya, Programmer) and I friggen love DF (She doesn't play anything other than Minecraft and Stardew Valley). Since Priya is having trouble finding work in programming and I'm doing nothing but playing DF and trading Crypto, I came up with the idea of mixing all these things together. And so, Dorfcoin was made!
Our plan. Like any good fortress, we set out a basic blueprint of where to take this cryptocurrency.
  1. Build wallet and miner for Linux- Completed!
  2. Create wallet for Windows- Completed!
  3. Create a miner for Windows- Completed!
  4. Create a wallet and miner for Android
  5. Have our coin listed on a Trade Depot (Exchange)
  6. Offer real products in exchange for Dorfcoin (Silver and Copper Ingots to start)
  7. Officially support a GPU miner for Linux/Windows/Mac- Windows Completed!
  8. Create a wallet and miner for iOS
  9. Create a casino minigame for Dorfcoin (on Windows, Linux, Android, and iOS)
  10. Rebuild wallet with built in CPU and GPU Solo/Pool mining with user friendliness in mind for Linux, Windows, and Mac
How can I make money off this?
By mining! No longer must you send Dorf miners to certain death to accumulate wealth. Simply download a Linux Wallet from here or a Windows Wallet from here.
For solo CPU Mining-
In your wallet, go to Help -> Debug Window -> Console and type in setgenerate true -(# of threads you want your processor to use). It should look like this, without the quotations; "setgenerate true -3" for 3 threads. Give it about 30 minutes to sync with our network and you'll begin mining!
For solo GPU Mining-
Download this package and follow the readme.
You may want to encrypt your wallet for safety, but be sure to write down the password should you do so- WE HAVE NO WAY OF RECOVERING YOUR PASSWORD IF YOU LOSE IT. There have been horror stories of bitcoin millionaires who can't access their fortune because they lost their wallet's password. You don't want to become one of these people.
Pool mining-
Throw this onto the config file of any stratum pool miner-
-o stratum+tcp://miningpool.thruhere.net:5516 -u Your wallet address here -p x
What makes us different?
We want to make cryptocurrency more accessible. And not just by adoption, but in mining as well. This is why we will make an app to mine Dorfcoin, though it cannot compete with a dedicated rig, pool mining with your phone will get people directly involved with Dorfcoin.
What are your thoughts on elves?
They're wusses. What do you mean they won't trade with me anymore? That wooden sculpture came from dead wood off my starting wagon- I didn't even murder any trees! (Yet).
More will be added as questions come up.

Hey folks. CryptoNight currencies have really taken my interest in general and are the reason I initially dipped my toes into cryptocurrency. The public ledger of BitCoin and friends concern me with their information exposure.
I've been watching Monero, AEON, Electroneum, Sumokoin, and others intently. Only recently has Intense Coin come across my radar. Eventually, I'd like to contribute towards one of these currencies in the form of development work.
In the meantime, I'm leveraging my extensive system administrator history to deploy a new pool for Intense Coin. I've noticed how worryingly centralized mining is for Intense Coin at the moment. I have been looking to setup a pool for a CryptoNight coin, and this seems like a perfect fit.
While I know it seems like opening a pool with a temporary 0% fee is the "thing to do", I wanted to start it up with a straight up honest low 0.5% fee that won't change. The only reason I'd ever consider raising this fee is to encourage use of other pools if this pool starts to gain a monopoly in hash rate. I believe this pool is the only pool offering email alerts and xmr-node-proxy support. So, if you've been looking for that, take a look.
While I obviously won't be available 24/7, feel free to hit me up here or in the pool's Discord Server (link on the site) if you run into any issues.

aiostratum-proxy: New, open source, no devfee, modular, multi-algo capable mining proxy software (equihash only, atm)

Built this mining proxy as a deep dive exercise in stratum protocols, miners, and pools, while I was mining Equihash related coins (ZCL, BTCP, ZEC, etc). Learned a lot, thought others could benefit from it, so have released it as open source. Check out the following links for more info:
Others have made claims in the past (I've seen 20% improvement mentioned) that using a proxy stabilizes pool share/hashrates and thus earnings. It certainly should, because when miners crash/restart, the proxy will maintain the connection to the pool (keeping the same difficulty, jobs, etc) for when miners reconnect to the proxy. This should reduce false 'pool hopping' detection in pools in this manner. (I'd love verification of this from pool operators!)
The goal is to have a single performant community-based mining proxy. Coin dev teams (or community members!) could add (or provide specs for) protocol support for new/existing coins. Currently, only Equihash has a protocol module included. Interested in more coin support?
No need to 'fork the project' to add new coin/algo support - 3rd party external modules (just create a compliant Python module) can be loaded via its config file. However, submitting a pull request to add new algo/coin support to aiostratum-proxy is awesome and appreciated.
If you try it out, let me know what you think, and spread the word if you like it.

Beginner's guide to Myriad Mining 4: Raspberry Pi edition

Beginner's guide to Myriad Mining 4: Raspberry Pi edition!
 
Part 1 - Mining Myriad with your Desktop PC (CPU) is here: https://www.reddit.com/myriadcoin/comments/6jj5z5/beginners_guide_to_myriad_mining_using_you
 
Part 2 - Mining Myriad with your NVIDIA GPU is here: https://www.reddit.com/myriadcoin/comments/6jobfa/beginners_guide_to_myriad_mining_part_2_using/
 
Part 3 - Mining Myriad with your AMD GPU is here: https://www.reddit.com/myriadcoin/comments/6lsic9/beginners_guide_to_myriad_mining_part_3_using/
   
Requirements:
 
-A Raspberry Pi
-Keyboard, mouse, network cable
-A PC for the wallet
-SD card (8 GB+)
-Patience
 
I'm personally using a Pi 2, however I'd be interested to know if there are hurdles/hashrate differences with any of the other Pi models.
 
I also have a few Pi heatsinks on order, and it seems you may even be able to overclock your Pi for this - I'll have a look into this and report back if there is any interest in running the Pi mining, overclocked with a heatsink. Commonly these machines are used to control Bitcoin ASICs, so this should be interesting!
 
N.B. Some of the initial steps are similar (or even identical) to the earlier guides. I recommend reading through it from start to finish, even if you think you're far ahead of me - sometimes there's a simple error that can be corrected by making sure all the steps are done in order.
 
  1. Get your wallet: Click on one of the following links https://github.com/myriadteam/myriadcoin/releases/download/v0.11.3.2/myriad-0.11.3.2-win64-setup.exe (or https://github.com/myriadteam/myriadcoin/releases/download/v0.11.3.2/myriad-0.11.3.2-win32-setup.exe if your computer cannot run the first) to download the Myriad official wallet. Install it on your PC, follow the setup instructions, then click "receive". Enter a label and press "request payment". This will be your wallet address for your Pi. If you did this for the CPU, AMD, or NVIDIA mining guides, you can do it again - there's no harm in knowing exactly where the payments are coming from, and there's no limit to how many addresses you can make to request Myriad. I'm talking about "request payment" - you only need one wallet application!
  2. Sign up for an account on a mining pool that takes Myriadcoin - Yescrypt. "Yescrypt" is the code that allows your Pi to search for coins on the network, and should only work with a CPU (central processing unit). The one I've been using for my guides is https://miningpoolhub.com/ . Once you sign up, click "Myriadcoin - Yescrypt pool" on the left, then click on "workers". Add a new worker - I called my first one CPU1, CPU2 etc for each new CPU, then Pi1, Pi2 etc for each Raspberry Pi. Password doesn't matter. In the difficulty box, you can put "sd=0.01" for a Pi 2 - thanks smatdesa , however sometimes just leaving it to auto-adjust can work better.
  3. After this click "wallet" on the left. Enter your "payment address" from step 1 and your PIN, as well as "20" for automatic payout of coins you mine, so you see some coin in your wallet every day or two. Please note, some pools charge a fee for this. 0.1 is the fee for my pool, and I'm happy to pay it to have the coins safely with me, as I don't donate - I have far too few Myriad to do so.
  4. This is where the guide diverges from the previous guides. If you're following along at home, this is a good place to start if you're in a hurry to get mining.
  5. Download Raspbian from this link: https://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspbian_latest and click on "download ZIP under "Raspbian with desktop"(let me know if the link changes!). Whilst this is downloading, grab yourself a copy of 7-zip from www.7-zip.org ( http://www.7-zip.org/a/7z1604-x64.exe for 64-bit and http://www.7-zip.org/a/7z1604.exe for 32-bit ). If you don't know what "32-bit" or "64-bit" means, that's okay - generally, 64-bit should work fine.
  6. So, let's continue getting software ready. Install 7-zip by double-clicking on your downloaded file. Also grab yourself a copy of Etcher - for writing our Raspbian to our Pi SD card from this linK: https://etcher.io/ . Click "download for Windows x64". If this one doesn't work/install, click the little arrow to the right, and click "Etcher for Windows x64 (32-bit) (Installer).
  7. Now, with all of the required software in place to install Raspbian, let's write it to our SD card. Double click your Raspbian-Jessie .zip file, and drag the .img file inside into a foldeonto your desktop. After it extracts, open up your copy of Etcher, and click "select image" - pick the .img you just dropped. Select your SD card be careful here! make sure it's actually your SD card and click Flash.
  8. Start your Pi Once this is done, plonk your SD into your Pi, connect power, keyboard, mouse, and HDMI, and watch the pretty lights flashing! The next step is acquiring the mining software to get your Pi mining. On the desktop, which has a lovely picture of a road and some nature, if that's your thing. But we're here to get mining! Click on the fourth icon from the left (default) - Terminal - a little icon with a window and blue menu bar . You're presented with a CLI (command line interface) in lovely black and green.
 
Type the following into your CLI:
 
git clone https://github.com/tpruvot/cpuminer-multi
 
This should echo the following: "cloning into 'cpuminer-multi'...", and could potentially take a while - on my Pi 2 running Raspbian Jessie, it took me somewhere along the lines of half an hour for this step alone. You should end with "Checking out files: 100%" or something along these lines, and be returned to your blue $ CLI prompt. Next command is as follows:
 
sudo apt-get install automake autoconf pkg-config libcurl4-openssl-dev libjansson-dev libssl-dev libgmp-dev make g++
 
Hit "y" at the prompt to begin installation of the required packages.
 
The **next command happens to be the simple build command:
 
./build.sh
 
All done. Make yourself a cup of tea, and feel excited that your Pi is doing a thing (compiling). The next thing you know, it's all complete, and you're left staring at your lovely blue $ prompt. So let's get it working!
 
cd cpuminer-multi
 
This will get you into your folder. The following command should get you mining happily (yes!):
 
cpuminer -o stratum+tcp://hub.miningpoolhub.com:20577 -a yescrypt -u username.workername -p x -t 4
 
Explanation: We are using cpuminer to connect to the mining pool we joined in step 2. -a yescrypt is the algorithm we are using, username is the user name you joined the pool with, workername is the worker we added, all in step 2. -p is your password (it shouldn't matter - you could potentially put myriad2them00n, but let's not complicate things), and -t 4 is the number of threads - you can experiment with this, depending on your Pi - for my Pi 2, I get the most submitted shares with 4 threads.
 
Mining speed: To give you an idea of my experience: if you lined up 15 of these, all overclocked to 1 GHz, they would produce around the same hashrate as a modern i5 laptop (1.5 kH/s).
 
And that's it!. Shout out to smatdesa, who got me excited about working on this guide! Please post any new configurations, questions or comments below! Happy Myriad mining. And if your 3,166 Raspberry Pis are burning rubber and overflowing your coffers with XMY, or you just like what you see here, I'm humbly accepting: Donations (XMY only please):

Stratum-mining is a pooled mining protocol. It is a replacement for network based pooling servers by allowing clients to generate work. The stratum protocol is described here in full detail. This is a implementation of stratum-mining for most coins. It is compatible with MPOS as it complies with the standards of pushpool. The end goal is to ... The DigiByte difficulty chart provides the current DigiByte difficulty (DGB diff) target as well as a historical data graph visualizing DigiByte mining difficulty chart values with DGB difficulty adjustments (both increases and decreases) defaulted to today with timeline options of 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 3 years, and all time difficulty_1_target can be different for various ways to measure difficulty. Traditionally, it represents a hash where the leading 32 bits are zero and the rest are one (this is known as "pool difficulty" or "pdiff"). The Bitcoin protocol represents targets as a custom floating point type with limited precision; as a result, Bitcoin clients often approximate difficulty based on this (this is ... mining.suggest_difficulty(preferred share difficulty Number) Wird verwendet, um eine Präferenz für den Freigabe-Schwierigkeitsgrad für den Pool anzugeben.
