Created in 2013 FTC is one of the oldest and most reliable cryptocoins. Since start as Litecoin clone FTC came a long way. It utilize unique ASIC resistant algorithm allowing normal people to still mine with CPU's and GPU's. Compared to BTC Feathercoin is offering faster and more scalable transactions while being more decentralized. Swift, secure and reasonably distributed network is backbone of Feathercoin. On top of secure hobbyist network we are building advanced functionality as anonymous transactions, user friendly multisig, comments ín blockchain, 3rd party integration as in wallet plugins and more. FTC is one of the most secure cryptocoin and safe store of value due to well ballanced emission model and long term development support. FTC is designed to bypass traditional banking system and eventually replace paper money in near future.

The warning is that not many other have downloaded the file. I'm sure someone else can come on and independently confirm this to be malware free.

How to mine it?

What port?

locate appdata/roaming/featerhcoin..

create feathercoin.conf

Add this info
server=1
daemon=1
rpcuser=miner
rpcpassword=SetSomeRandomPassword
rpcport=9337
port=9336

If you are going to mine with more miners on your network you need to add rpcallowip=*.*.*.*

If you got a Radeon 7970 you can use this cgminer command:
cgminer --scrypt -u miner -p SetSomeRandomPassword -o 127.0.0.1:8100 --worksize 256 -g 2 -I 13 --lookup-gap 2 --gpu-engine 1000 --gpu-memclock 1400 --shaders 2048

u should tell in advance.... so people can get ready no just the freaks that keep reading it all the day.

I could start mining it as crazy, so it would become a premined coin

I am releasing FeatherCoin now. I have been working on this for a while and now want to give it go in the big bad world.

This coin is a fork of Litecoin diving back to its 0.6.3 build. I am a supporter of Litecoin and will be following Coblee’s releases. The Litecoin team is working on a newer release and this project will move with them.

The joys of a Litecoin fork, are that we get to use Scrypt and follow a release designed for specifically for it.  There are a lot of Bitcoin forks but with the advent of ASIC miners we are starting to see how much havoc they can cause. To give us GPU miners shelter we need Scrypt based coins, as, in my opinion, Litecoin is currently the only valid one. Litecoin being as mature as it is makes it hard to join in the fun so let’s start with a new coin that follows Litecoin’s tradition.

FeatherCoin has a block reward of 200 and will have a total of 336 million coins. This makes it four times that of LiteCoin, this is the same position that LiteCoin was set against BitCoin. There is no private preming of this coin.

This coin is in beta like all this cryptocoins.

GUI Version for Windows - http://www.feathercoin.com/FeatherCoin.zip
Windows Daemon - http://www.feathercoin.com/feathercoind.zip
Source Code - http://www.feathercoin.com/feathercoin-0.6.3.zip

There is a website to come and I will get this on to GitHub. I will update this post with some more technical details tomorrow. It has been a long day so I'll leave you to test this over night. markm, if nothing else I hope that you find this coin useful one day. Smoovious, just start mining.


What is the point of having so many coins? That seems to make it much more worthless. Why not have less coins than Litecoin?

  • It allows the inventor and his friends to premine it overnight
  • ?

I think it might have something to do with so many blocks being mined so quickly (I've mined 8 blocks in four minutes (well, four and a half)), that it is finding blocks that are rejected as other blocks already propagated over the network, invalidating the work done by your GPUs. Not for sure though :)

Also, mine shows 8 transactions and 8 blocks in cgminer, but no "transactions" under the transactions tab. I guess I must just wait :P

anyone with sucsessful mining? i have 106 stale/invalid and 1 accepted, in client say 1 transaction but no coins?


Title: Re: FeatherCoin - New Litecoin based coin
Post by: northcape on April 16, 2013, 10:41:38 PM
i get only stales?

I get 99.9985% rejects (literally — 3 accepted shares out of 2000, the rest was rejected). Wallet shows 3 transactions in the overview, but no coins and no transactions in the actual tab.

cgminer showed a difficulty of 16 earlier, now its down to 15. Go figure. I’m going back to PPC and take this as an example of how to not launch an altcoin.

Very interesting how there’s zero information on how to mine it...

I wasn't going to say anything... but mining this coin is like mining every other coin.
It's SOP.

Plus what you said:
 made a list of the advantages that this currency has to offer:

?
?
?

Umm... there was no premine... anyone who knows how to solo mine would have been mining it right away.
I have mined quite a few blocks since I read the initial forum post.

Highly competitive at this time... the chain went from just a few hundred to almost 3k blocks in the last hour!

Well then disregard my posting. I’m just getting rejects and no blocks. I assume the difficulty is so low that whoever has the lowest latency to the network gets his block accepted first, and the ones with higher latency just get nothing but rejects.
(please correct me if I’m wrong?)

"Generated coins must mature 120 blocks before they can be spent. When you generated this block, it was broadcast to the network to be added to the block chain. If it fails to get into the chain, its state will change to "not accepted" and it won't be spendable. This may occasionally happen if another node generates a block within a few seconds of yours."

Not unusual since this coin was just launched and a lot of people have jumped on it.

The build problem is in util.h and can be fixed by

sed -i -e 's/pthread2/pthread/g' util.h

For some reason someone hacked it to use pthread2 instead of the normal pthread used by litecoin.

Not sure it is even close to >50%

Getmininginfo in console shows current hashrate is "networkhashps" : 1892145

Even if these coins end up worthless, it has been fun just to try to mine them. My first few blocks were rejected though. Finally getting some coins now.

Agreed

I haven't tried to solo mine (or use anything but guiminer) before so setting that up was a learning experience :P

The build problem is in util.h and can be fixed by

sed -i -e 's/pthread2/pthread/g' util.h

For some reason someone hacked it to use pthread2 instead of the normal pthread used by litecoin.

I imagine the early miners of Bitcoin, Litecoin, P2PCoin, Terracoin all probably thought the same thing!   8)

That something i put up there.. standard port is most likely 9336

for the solo mining part, the important port is the rpcport. you can remove the port= if you want to use standard port.

I think the intent was to create a LTC clone... in doing so, the starting difficulty parameter was not changed.
Unfortunately, when LTC was launched there was no GPU mining available.

but i think client is a little buggy, it count transactions but no coins?

Blocks that increase the transaction counter but showing up nowhere else are probably blocks getting orphaned (not accepted into the chain).   You can see if this is happening by opening the console window (Help/Debug Window/Console) and using the "listtransactions" command.  Any transaction that shows up as category "orphan" is, unfortunately, an orphaned block that results in no coins for you.

True there is a certain amount of "linking" that can be done via posting an addy, but you would keep ur anonymity by using a new addy for every transaction as that part of the anonymity combined with you can find out possibly the ip that the transaction was relayed from, and as these early days only a few points of connection on the map, by me posting and addy see what information you can find out about me :)

Yea no hard feelings at all and not meaning it as a threat or me getting up on my high heals about it at all.  I to think like you and want to know what is the best way to use the cryptocurrency and how potential flaws can be averted, if there is a loophole or vulnerability then it WILL be exploited, I feel it is important to iron out such bugs early on. So yeah i totally get where u coming from, and that the kinda best answer i have so far as to the posting of addys on forums, if you don't want to link your accounts across other forums and parts of the internet then yeah the different addy for every transaction, but i believe a determined person could piece together a certain amount of information even then.

Important to raise concerns and ask questions, hence my desire for these thngs to be tested

The build problem is in util.h and can be fixed by

sed -i -e 's/pthread2/pthread/g' util.h

For some reason someone hacked it to use pthread2 instead of the normal pthread used by litecoin.

Thanks for that.

For My 7970 cards:
cgminer --scrypt -u user -p pass -o http://host:port --worksize 256 -g 2 -I 13 --lookup-gap 2 --gpu-engine 1000 --gpu-memclock 1400 --shaders 2048

Cpuminer:
./minerd --algo=scrypt -o http://host:port -u user -p pass

Make sure your running with scrypt

I updated cgminer from github but it claims there are no such commands as --auto-fan, gpu-engine, and gpu-memclock, how come your version does not refuse to accept those? My README and SCRYPT-README seem to think they exist but cgminer --help does not list them at all. Nor auto-gpu either.

If you are behind a firewall, you normally are limited to 8 ( it looks like the author raised it to 16) unless you open the P2P port in your firewall.

Code:
static const int MAX_OUTBOUND_CONNECTIONS = 16;

Really not needed, without digging to far into the code I believe it is 9336 according to the debug log. Personally I do not think it is wise to poke holes in your firewall if you are using the daemon for personal use and not running a service.

Actually it's just upnp.  But, I'm behind a modem and a router so I need port forwarding on one then upnp works on the other.

Upnp is still poking a hole in your firewall, you are allowing unsolicited connections through the firewall on that port. It does not matter if it is done manually or through Upnp, the effect is the same.

Edit: Also it does not matter if you are behind a modem/router (as almost everybody is), you can still connect to other nodes if your node solicits the connection first.

Wow did not mean for this to turn into a firewall lesson, anyway its your network, run it the way you want. I just like people to be aware of what open a port (however way it is done) allows unsolicited traffic through the firewall..  :)

Unfortunately I was at work and didn't see it until about 2 hours ago. I've got 2.1Mh/s, so I think I'm doing ok.  ;D

When I saw it I started solo mining and the block count was like 300 or so.
Now it's over 8,000   :)

22401 now...

I am running three rigs at about 800 k/h each.

In reality I am taking it easy because I just plugged in the scrypt config from memory without switching the rigs to windows.

If I really wanted to hit it hard, I would get my lazy butt downstairs and switch the rigs to the windows (scrypt coin setup)

I am also running a private pushpool to reduce greatly on the stale blocks

Hey if all the GPU miners abandon it like they did so many other chains (including BBQcoin for many months) that will be great, this will be yet another chain that CPU miners can quietly mine month after month maybe before the GPU bullies catch on again and come back like happened with BBQcoin and may yet happen with GeistGeld, Tenebrix, I0coin and so on...

It is really nice to have coins most people ignore, as that gives all those people who keep complaining about GPUs and FPGAs and ASICs something they can mine, often for many months at a stretch. In a few years such coins will have huge population of holders who mined with with just their CPUs over the years quietly, under the radar...

Would folks be willing to trade feather coin Lite coin for  some  of my BBQ coin?

BBQ coin is already worth at least 1000 per bit coin,and according to BBQ coin it's going to be on two exchanges very quickly.

I got 11k BBQ coin,or 11bit coin worth.


I'll do 250 BBQ per 1000 FC ;)

I see what you are poking at

While what you say is true for the long term investor, people new to crypto currencies do not want to wait for months or years to have anything of value. The idea of a CPU coin is to let the average person in on crypto coins, without using the expensive methods available to buy in today or invest in hardware and have the specialized knowledge to use it.

I really do see your point though about all the abandoned coins, I just think we are talking about different goals... :D

Anyway,

I am going to shut down my rigs for now and give others a chance. It is always fun to mine a new chain, but it is time to let other have some fun  :D

Well, this coin's definitely got a lot of start up attention compared to the other alt coins... In one day we have over 7 day's worth of PPC's thread in comments, 4 days worth of LTC's, 15 days worth over FRC, etc. So from what I get from that, I think this is the most fairly distributed coin so far :) Anyways I love the feather as opposed to a letter on the logo, so I'd hope for FTC to become mainstream.

Ok, I have to say something here because this is a pet peeve of mine:

DO NOT USE rpcallowip=*

Using that setting with a complete wildcard allows anybody/anything that can get to the daemon to issue rpc commands to it.

Restrict it down like:

rpcallowip=192.168.1.*

This will only allow hosts on the 192.168.1.0/24 (The most common home network) to issue rpc commands to that daemon.

Basically only use the wild card for your hosts and not network portion of your sub net mask.

for cgminer:   -s 1 --expiry 1 --queue 0     and knock your intensity down one or two

Since new blocks come every few seconds, you need to keep the latency low. Low expiry, low scan time, no queue work, and you need the intensity low enough so that things respond quickly on your computer.

Man, taking into account the ridiculous number of rejects I think I actually do better mining BBQcoins.  For that matter I'm not sure we need yet another scrypt coin, what exactly is the point other than racking up a hilarious # of coins early on?
Of course both coins are pretty much equally worthless but still.

For people with issues getting tons of orphaned blocks, just forward port 9336 to your computer running the client.

Here's a brief explanation as to why this works:
Orphaned blocks are caused by you mining a block, when someone beat you to it. Bummer!
The faster you can get the new blocks, the less likely you are to be trying to mine a block that has already been mined, right?!? Well, if you don't port forward, you will get around 16 max connections. If you port forward, you can see upwards of 50 or 100 connections. The more people you are connected to, the faster you will receive blocks, as the more routes a block has to get to you. Imagine a hermit who only talks to his mother, and she only talks to the postman. The postman talks to everyone. By the time news gets from Jeremy to the postman to the recluse's mother to the recluse, it's old news. But if the hermit talked to the postman directly, he would get news much quicker.

Sorry, I'm tired. Hope that makes sense, I'm off. Night! :)

Or, if you're the postman you'll be able to tell a lot of people right from the beginning.  And you have a greater chance of talking to another postman.

got 10600 FC overnight, last block i found was at 04:04 GMT+1

testing it with cudaminer now (scrypt based cuz it gives me double the rate of cgminer), let's see if we can find anything :)

I'm afraid I can not support coins that simply move some zeros around and clone an existing coin.  Without some compelling technical improvement on LTC (and which they refused to adopt after petitioning) I can't really see this as anything but a "me too" coin.  Also I see no indication of a committed development team that will support this for the long term and as such is a waste of time.

How one can see when blocks are orphaned?

I find this launch a good chance to learn how coins work in practice :)

When low diff, many solo miners and someone say with large gpu farm, what are the causes for blocks been orphaned? Seems block is solved and solo miner dont know about it? Or software notifies all miners and each get new block?

Also from the probability theory point of view what are the chances of solo miner to get the block when large pool are in play? How does some party control of say 5% of hash power influences chance of block discovery? :D And anyone made pool for this coin? :P I wanted to try to see how it works however a bit sleepy :)

let it run overnight: 346 rejected blocks, 3 blocks accepted from which 3 are orphans @ 260 khash. So in total I got 0 FC.

Is this just bad luck? I entered around block 3000 and it has been running since. Just didn't setup the portforwarding.

To many miners now, we are too far behind to get a block or enough blocks to make it worthwhile, some people already have 10,000+ FC

The only solution for our low hashrates would be a pool.

I have now changed the source code to fix this error and have uploaded the code. Hope you are having fun with the coin.

You can still solo mine easily. There are four times as many FeatherCoins as LiteCoins so you'll still be able to get 10,000FC together.

There are a lot of altcoins out there but only a few of them are Scrypt based.

As far as I know these are the only Scrypt based coins.

Litecoin
Feathercoin
Novacoin
Mincoin

I've been waiting for another Scrypt based coin but none have come forward. I am a big altcoin fan and look forward to any additions to the altcoin family. I imagine a lot of people simply see altcoins as a threat to whatever altcoin they support. As no coin was forthcoming and the scrypt coins that came out did not appeal.

Novacoin I decided not to per sue as there was a private premine and the whole 110k NVC donation to BTC-e put me off.

Mincoin only has a a block reward of 2 and has a cap of 10 million coins. This would make it rarer than LTC which I do not think is sensible unless you want to try and become the new Litecoin.

So yes, another altcoin. This one is the light version of Litecoin, making it as light as a feather :)

There is BQC, also scrypt and still a little bit easier to solo mine, lower diff as FC but also lower Block reward. And diff rose dramatically the last days!

If you are launching cpuminer from command-line or batch, just add that flag to the launch options so it would read:

You haven't found any blocks yet. Coins will appear in your wallet under "Immature" once you see "ACCEPTED" on your miner output.

At he top of your miner screen you should see an "A:" and an "R:" the "A:" is the number of accpeted blocks since yo opened the miner. "R:" is your rejected blocks.

When your "A:" has a non-zero value, there will be coins in your wallet under immature. After 120 blocks are confirmed, the balance will move from immature to your final balance.

The difficulty has gone up quite a bit, I was getting new blocks every couple minutes last night. Now, it's taking 20-30 minutes to just SUBMIT a "share" (block). Remember this is solo mining, not pool mining.

My current session has been running for about 2 hours and this is what I have

gpu 0: ~460kh/s - Accepted: 3, Rejected: 3
gpu 1: ~353kh/s - Accepted: 4, Rejected: 1

So if you have decent kh/s, just be patient. give it a few hours and see what you get.

Sorry, my mistake, cpuminer does not support the -E flag, I believe it only supports the --scantime flag

Try:

Code:
minerd.exe --algo scrypt --url 127.0.0.1:port --userpass username:password --scantime 6

As far as why your block count is lower, I am unsure as I have not experienced this problem.

I am unsure as to why your found blocks are not placing coins in your wallet (unless the blockchain is not fully downloaded which may be the case as indicated by your incorrect block count).

Restart your client with -rescan, let the blockchan download entirely and then try mining again....

I haven't built this specific client in Linux, but 9 out of 10 clients you can build by going into the "src" directory and doing:

Code:
make -f makefile.unix feathercoind USE_UPNP=

There is indeed a "src" directory.

It is located in ~/FeatherCoin/src

go to that directory.

Do:

Code:
make -f makefile.unix feathercoind USE_UPNP=

and mine away...

The difficulty has gone up quite a bit, I was getting new blocks every couple minutes last night. Now, it's taking 20-30 minutes to just SUBMIT a "share" (block). Remember this is solo mining, not pool mining.

My current session has been running for about 2 hours and this is what I have

gpu 0: ~460kh/s - Accepted: 3, Rejected: 3
gpu 1: ~353kh/s - Accepted: 4, Rejected: 1

So if you have decent kh/s, just be patient. give it a few hours and see what you get.

After a reboot and 3 hours I have,

gpu 0: ~453kh/s - Accepted: 0, Rejected: 0
gpu 1: ~453kh/s - Accepted: 0, Rejected: 0

Lol

For the record, I had no success with cgminer. I am using Reaper via GUI miner. Don't know if that make a difference.

Yep.  Great coin to mine.  Slightly lower difficulty than this one now.  Strong rumors of BQC hitting a couple of very popular exchanges as well.  I've been mining it hard in anticipation of that.

What kind of access do you need, OS, etc? I'll set one up for you to work your magic.

My preference is for Debian with no gnome.

I will need root or superuser access with an open SSH port (it won't be open long, just until I set-up iptables).

All pools come with: long-polling support, security (apache, iptables, fail2ban and more) and free tech support for the life of the pool.

Pricing is as follows:

1. 10 BTC for pool with long-polling and no GUI
2. 40 BTC for pool with long-polling and GUI
3. 50 BTC for pool with long-polling, stratum and GUI

I did a poor job of modifying p2pool but it seems to work, I got a block to pay out to my address anyway.

cgminer --scrypt  -o stratum+tcp://fpool1.zapto.org:19327 -s 1 --expiry 1 --queue 0 -u PUT_YOUR_FC_ADDR_HERE -p x (and other tuning stuff)

No GUI but you can go here http://fpool1.zapto.org:19327/static/  and on the bottom make sure your address shows up for a payout after you earn some shares. If you have a payout and you notice a new block is found (in the table) and you didn't get paid, then let me know / disconnect. I haven't tested it out enough yet.

I think his point is that it's not fair to those of us who aren't available to stalk the forums all day long. A true "no pre-mine" is when a coin is announced days, weeks or months in advance (not minutes in advance) so everyone has a TRUE equal opportunity at being an "early adopter".

Maybe in the newbies section...

I think it's generally assumed that if you are forking your own coin you have most likely been around long enough to see enough complaints about coins which are mined with little to no announcement in advance and should theoretically know and comprehend the true definition of the phrase "no pre-mine".

Anyone can post detailed how to compile cpooler cpu miner? I want to experiment with some prototype coins hence the request :)

Also I am happy to provide server with fat internet pipe in usa datacentre for the pool for this coin for say 1,2 day, in exchange for chance to understand how pools work ;) I am going to exercise if someone wants me to setup up pool server with putty access let me know :)

Probably, but it's seeing 50% DOA so the pool's net rate is a block every 15 minutes. If nothing pays in the next 10 I'll close it for troubleshooting and send some payments to the shares I see.

How can you claim there was no pre-mine when you haven't announced your coin before starting it ?

And no, announcing it 5 min before launch does not count.

Why not?  
I was in the forum at the right time.
when i started there was like 300 blocks.

Nobody told me... i was paying attention.

I think his point is that it's not fair to those of us who aren't available to stalk the forums all day long. A true "no pre-mine" is when a coin is announced days, weeks or months in advance (not minutes in advance) so everyone has a TRUE equal opportunity at being an "early adopter".

I'm not complaining since I could care less about his "nothing new / me too coin" ... but, You must usually allow a week or more to allow people to review the code or understand the concept.

In this case it was needed to start it fast because there was really nothing worthy to spend time understanding.

Here is an example of a coin that was released with no pre-mine.

I did a poor job of modifying p2pool but it seems to work, I got a block to pay out to my address anyway.

cgminer --scrypt  -o stratum+tcp://fpool1.zapto.org:19327 -s 1 --expiry 1 --queue 0 -u PUT_YOUR_FC_ADDR_HERE -p x (and other tuning stuff)

No GUI but you can go here http://fpool1.zapto.org:19327/static/  and on the bottom make sure your address shows up for a payout after you earn some shares. If you have a payout and you notice a new block is found (in the table) and you didn't get paid, then let me know / disconnect. I haven't tested it out enough yet.

Here are some instructions for creating one’s own private pushpool for any of the scrypt coins (the examples will be for feather coin)
Pushpool and pool software in general, is really designed around Linux and as such the instructions are for Linux,

1.   Download  (Git clone) Art Forz branch of Pushpool.
 https://github.com/ArtForz/pushpool

2.   Run the “autogen.sh” and then run “./configure”. Take note of the dependencies it finds missing and install those dependencies. Continue to run configure until all Dependencies are met.

From the ReadME:

Code:
Dependencies:
libmysql++-dev
libevent
libmemcached
pthreads
zlib
jansson
OpenSSL's libcrypto
libcurl
(The postgressql   C libraries, I do not remember the name off  hand)

3.   Run the make command. The pushpoold executable should now be available.

4.   Set up a database. You can download a SQL template from:
 https://github.com/simplecoin/simplecoin/tree/master/sql (https://github.com/simplecoin/simplecoin/tree/master/sql)
Using mysql :
Code:

mysql -u root -p
<enter password at prompt>
create database pool (or whatever you want to name it);
When successful , quit mysql
To import the database : mysql -u root -p  pool < simplecoin-v5.sql
Enter password again and if you receive no error you should be ok.
Restart mysql prompt (mysql  -u root –p)
Use pool;  (or whatever you named the database)
INSERT INTO pool_worker (username ,password)  VALUES(<”any username you want”>,<”whatever password you want”>);
Note your username and password in the values section needs to be in quotes.

Example: INSERT INTO pool_worker (username ,password)  VALUES("iamuser", ”iampassword”);

 For more  information on using the mysql command line visit: http://www.pantz.org/software/mysql/mysqlcommands.html
You should get an ok, then exit mysql

Create your server.json file:
Example:
Code:
{
# network ports
"listen" : [
# binary protocol (default), port 8336
{ "port" : 8336 },

# HTTP JSON-RPC protocol, port 8337
{ "port" : 8337, "protocol" : "http-json" },

# HTTP JSON-RPC protocol, port 8339,
# with trusted proxy appserver.example.com forwarding
# requests to us
{ "port" : 8339, "protocol" : "http-json",
 "proxy" : "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" },

# binary protocol, localhost-only port 8338
{ "host" : "127.0.0.1", "port" : 8338, "protocol" : "binary" }
],

# database settings
"database" : {
"engine" : "mysql",

# 'host' defaults to localhost, if not specified
#"host" : "mysql.example.com",

# 'port' uses proper default port for the DB engine,
# if not specified
#"port" : 12121,

"name" : "pool",
"username" : "root",
"password" : “<Mysql database password>",

"stmt.pwdb" :
 "SELECT password FROM pool_worker WHERE username = ?",
                "stmt.sharelog":"INSERT INTO shares (rem_host, username, our_result, upstream_result, reason, solution) VALUES (?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?)"

},

# cache settings
"memcached" : {
"servers" : [
{ "host" : "127.0.0.1", "port" : 11211 }
]
},

"pid" : "/tmp/pushpoold.pid",

# overrides local hostname detection
#"forcehost" : "localhost.localdomain",

"log.requests" : "/tmp/request.log",
"log.shares" : "/tmp/shares.log",

# the server assumes longpolling (w/ SIGUSR1 called for each blk)
"longpoll.disable" : false,

# length of time to cache username/password credentials, in seconds
"auth.cred_cache.expire" : 75,

# RPC settings
"rpc.url" : "http://127.0.0.1:yyyy/",
"rpc.user" : "<rpc username in your coins .conf file>",
"rpc.pass" : "<password in your coins .conf file>",

# rewrite returned 'target' to given number of zero bits, 32 equals difficulty-1
#"rpc.target.bits" : 32,

# how long before work expires?
"work.expire" : 120,

# allow clients to update the ntime field of their work
"roll.ntime.disable" : false
}


Some notes: Although I used the mysql root account to access the database, it can be a security risk if you network is exposed to the public (not such a large deal for a home network). One can set a user account and give it permission to access the pool database if desired.
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx = what the IP address of the computer (server) you are running the pool .
yyyy =  The rpc port the coin daemon is listening to (either you set (which I normally do) or the default)
I also comment out the Difficulty statement as there is no need to difficulty change on a solo pool since you are not paying out shares. This means the pool difficulty will equal the real difficulty.
I have also removed the share logs statement as there is no need to keep logs in a solo pool.

Next we are going to set-up a little script for tripping long polls:

I name mine blocknotify.sh:

Code:
#!/usr/bin/env python

import sys
import os

os.system("killall -s SIGUSR1 pushpoold")
Place it in your pushpool directory, and chmod  +x  blocknotify.sh   to make it executable.
Also place a copy of your coin daemon in your Pushpool directory, and when it comes time to start it, start it from there. This saves some hassle.

In your coins.conf file (feathercoin.conf) add the line:

Code:
blocknotify="<complete path to pushpool> /blocknotify.sh"

Example: blocknotify="/home/robert/pushpool/blocknotify.sh"
Ok, you should be all set up.

1.   Start your daemon (if using the command line version you will see a bunch of “cannot fins pushpoold.pid” type errors ,ignore them as you do not have Pushpool running yet.
The daemon is tripping the blocknotify script as it catches up and the script cannot find the Pushpool PID. This is harmless.

2.   Start Pushpool:
./pushpoold  –E  –F  --debug=2

The switches are optional, but I highly recommend them.

3.   You should see something like:
Code:
2013-04-17 19:41:5.676817] Debug output enabled
[2013-04-17 19:41:5.681610] Listening on host :: port 8336
[2013-04-17 19:41:5.681763] Listening on host :: port 8337
[2013-04-17 19:41:5.681842] Listening on host :: port 8339
[2013-04-17 19:41:5.681901] Listening on host 127.0.0.1 port 8338
[2013-04-17 19:41:5.686288] initialized

4 . Point your miners to the server @ port 8339 and you should be mining away using long poll.

The reason going through this to use long poll, is that long poll will switch your miners almost instantly when a new block is on the network.

With getwork, what you are using when connecting your miners to the daemon, your mining software checks for new blocks at certain intervals.

If a new block comes on the network just after your miner does a getwork, your miner will be working on a stale block until it checks again.

I know there will be many questions, but a review of this thread first, can help answer many of them:

If on windows go to appdata roaming feathercoin and make a feathercoin.conf with this in it and restart your client if your on linux then hopefully you know where to put the feathercoin.conf.

Code:
rpcuser=user
rpcpassword=password
server=1
daemon=1
rpcport=8100
rpcport=8101

Also make sure port 9336 is open on your firewall or router.

[PRIVATE PUSHPOOL SETUP GUIDE]

Thanks for the write up, Dreamwatcher!  I'll have to give this a try.

I can see how this would be useful during the initial stages of a new alt coin if the initial difficulty is low and blocks are flying by at amazing speed. 

Out of curiosity, how much of a performance gain would using a private pushpool offer when mining an established scrypt coin like Litecoin, versus mining straight through the litecoin daemon?  Just a ballpark figure if you have any sense of it.

I have read many different values:

To me it appears to average out at about 3-5%, depending on how many miners you have connecting to the pool. Each miner adds to the chance of working on a stale block when the block changes before the miners getwork.

Any tweak suggestions? It is connected and mining, supposedly.

I am currently testing the mine with pooler's cpuminer
heres my batch:
minerd --url http://fpool1.zapto.org:19327 --userpass [feathercoin address]:x

Any tweak suggestions? It is connected and mining, supposedly.

If you have more than 1 cpu core use "--threads" and set to the number of cores you have. For example, I have 2 core so I use "--threads 2"

There needs to be a pool that's not P2Pool.

Also, what's the going rate for BTC/FC and LTC/FC?

if you know how to set up a different pool I am all ears.

Joined the pool with ~200Kh/s desktop background humming :)

FC account: 6hcayowvVpo7XKWLDXbrDoRkFjNS7tMBYU

The pool is working? Im confused, can you post the link?

Pool is working great

cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://fpool1.zapto.org:19327 -u YourFCAddress -p x -s 1 --expiry 1 --queue 0 --expiry 1 -I 13

Stats you can check out here http://fpool1.zapto.org:19327/static/

Hopefully siteowner will share his p2pool mod with the rest of us :)

will try it now, someone using it with guiminer scrypt? cgminer doesnt work well with my cards?

http://fpool1.zapto.org:19327/static/   it says litecoin?

I love how the feathercoin wallet says the difficulty is 1, but cgminer says 65k.  Geez, this coin should be worth .50 usd already at that rate.

Wow!  My scryptminer gui seems to be getting a much better hashrate.  The integrated CPU miner must be crap.

LOL, it is scrypt difficulty of 1 which displays as 65k in cgminer, it is working the way it should. Litecoin does the same.

From the cgminer FAQ:

Code:
Q: Why do the scrypt diffs not match with the current difficulty target?
A: The current scrypt block difficulty is expressed in terms of how many
multiples of the BTC difficulty it currently is (eg 28) whereas the shares of
"difficulty 1" are actually 65536 times smaller than the BTC ones. The diff
expressed by cgminer is as multiples of difficulty 1 shares.

in cgminer use the "--expire 5" setting, this forces the miner to get new information from the client far more often.. 5 seconds vs 60 or so by default.

More coins means 1 of 2 things.

1) Survival of the fittest, each new coin has to improve on the previous or be different somehow or there is not point, this a a very good thing, proven by nature.
2) Alt-coins in general become so bloated that it becomes a joke.

For some reason I can't the wallet to connect, I tried redownloading it, opening and closing it a few times like was said to do below, still no luck.
I cannot get connections on the Feathercoin client..

Mine did that once I just had to restart the client a couple times.

If on windows go to appdata roaming feathercoin and make a feathercoin.conf with this in it and restart your client if your on linux then hopefully you know where to put the feathercoin.conf.

Code:
rpcuser=user
rpcpassword=password
server=1

rpcport=8100
rpcport=8101

Also make sure port 9336 is open on your firewall or router.

You can also use LP but stratum works best since new blocks come so frequently.

I didn't properly fix P2Pool, I just changed a few things so it'd run with feathercoind since it's a fork of litecoind:
Modify bitcoin\networks.py , line 91 (the litecoin settings) to ADDRESS_VERSION=14, and change the P2P_Port and RPC_Port to match litecoind/feathercoind configs
networks.py line 60 : PERSIST=False,  also changed some of the ports
BOOTSTRAP_ADDRS=''.split(' ') , SHARE_PERIOD=30  to help with stales, and since the other settings weren't changed, I don't want to broadcast to other peers, it's not setup for that

Put a litecoin.conf in the place it normally goes with the same settings as feathercoin.conf

C:\Python27\python.exe run_p2pool.py --bitcoind-rpc-port 8100 --bitcoind-p2p-port 9336 --net litecoin -w 19327


is someone calculate earnings with the pool? i find a block in a 1hr approximately solo mining, and here in 40 mins i earned like 10coins?

It's based on a ~24 hour round, so your share should stay in there for a while. I tried reducing this to 1 hour but I wasn't successful, so I've been donating FC to the pool users. So you should get (after 1 hour of mining) the same coins you would have gotten in 1 hour but spread out over 24 hours.

I tried tweaking these settings
CHAIN_LENGTH=24*60*60//10, # shares
REAL_CHAIN_LENGTH=24*60*60//10, # shares
TARGET_LOOKBEHIND=200, # shares
SPREAD=120, # blocks

but no blocks were being found after I changed them.



Title: Re: FeatherCoin - New Litecoin based coin
Post by: chriswen on April 17, 2013, 11:09:28 PM
With regular p2pool I think the rounds are based off of 24 hours or 3 blocks.

Ok, the daemon is up and running, Hopefully it will be caught up soon. I have put no restrictions on the number of connections, so it can act as a good goto node.

I donated some coins to the pool users for helping me test and when we weren't getting blocks cause of my mistakes (~3.5k total), but hopefully it works fine now.

Also, I shortened the share window to ~1 hour so it will re-balance faster with new hashers coming online.

Local rate: 22.6MH/s (4.9% DOA) , getting a block every 4 minutes or so now and my feathercoind is much better connected than in the past with 38-67 peers.

Just setuped a quick and dirty explorer for the feathercoin. Might need some config changes.

I'm giving about 1% of the pool's hash rate at the moment (i know it's not huge). An hour ago I got a share every couple of minutes (while giving 2% of pool's hash rate). Now I get maybe a share every 30 minutes. Why such a big difference?

Does this work from the qt client? I had about 700 accepted shares over the last few hours and so far no payout... Do the blocks take a really long time to confirm?

I do not see my payout address on the list yet but im sure it takes a few minutes.

Interesting coin, and I always enjoy trying out new coins. I tried soloing a bit today but haven't made anything. Switched over to P2Pool with my address: 6xZTLduXBihmFPWG9TLYzjEPp6QgDVgoeY woohoo! :)

I can't seem to get stratum to work, but long polling seems fine for now.

EDIT: I don't know if anybody in particular sent me anything, but I just received a fair amount from someone. Whoever you are, thank you for the generosity!

Careful with that. I have been working with mmcFE (from the original greedi git) and it is not as simple as it appears to alter it serve a new coin. I have never got it to my satisfaction, or working perfectly with coins other then it was designed for. However, others have.. :)

There are many hard coded values that need to be changed, especially when it comes to share counting and reward calculation.

I am not saying you are not capable of altering it, after all PHP is not one of my primary languages. I am just warning you that it is more complex then it appears.

I wish you the best of luck, and hope you have a successful pool   :)

CGminer shows 65k.

Litecoin is currently 323, feathercoin is currently 1 (multiply by 65k to get the CGminer number, which is 20m something for LTC)

Running good so far. It's nice to see so many shares vs how it was with the p2p. I know the payout is very similar, but you know, instant gratification.

Yeah it's nice for the low kh/s to have less variance. I tested "diff 3" with 12 kh/s and it seemed to give a reasonable rate of shares without flooding 1.7 MH/s . The only thing I don't like about pushpool is that the server has a wallet that it pays from. I'd much rather have the payout go like P2Pool with the transactions tied to the block rather than holding the whole block reward locally and paying out from there.

How is your stale rate?

My 900 kh/s isn't getting it anymore. We need a p2pool soon.
After restarting a few times to make sure things weren't hung up, I'm getting a block on average every 30 minutes with ~850kh/s

That's pretty good. I just keep on getting "New block detected on network" now.

Haha, ya... I start reading the thread and think "Man it's early still!" and go about setting up the client and miner..

then fast forward to the end of the thread.. dismayed.

even when I'm quick, Im too slow lol. it's one of those days, everything is out to get me.

oh well, at least I know how to solo mine now. yay. *bangs head into wall*

How does the coins transfer to my wallet? When I open up FeathercoinQT I'm still at balance 0  ???



Lol no man, AFAIK, thats all those guys with 27 HD7999X milk crates stacked in the basement under the UberAircon running at 5000000Mh/s and getting coins every .0005 seconds.  Blocks found on the network, as opposed to ones you've found.

I'm seeing the same as you, and I know my miserable 5850 alone is just drowning in a world without pools..

Hey all,

So I thought I would see if the modified version of Stratum would work out of the box with FeatherCoin and have set up a test pool site today. Please feel free to jump on and mine some FC. Any blocks found will be paid out.

Stratum: currently working and 1 block found already

Connection details:  stratum+tcp://mine.altpool.com:3333/

Pushpool: currently not working, hope to have this running in the next 24 hours.

Hrmm, well I've got cgminer running on the new pool @ http://fpool1.zapto.org:28339  and getting accepted shares left right and centre. :)

Worrying however is I'm getting a fair number of hardware errors and I'm not pushing my card that hard, certainly not as hard as I have. Unless I've suddenly buggered it.. Now that would fit in with the day I'm having aha.. *touches wood*

I can push the card to 370+- Kh/s with an intensity of 16-17 on ltc, but it's struggling at 320Kh/s on 11, atm. I'm just hoping that means that it's failing with so many quick hashs.. or .. yeah I have no idea what I'm talking about..  the voodoo is working but the spells don't make sense.

What intensity should it be for a hd5850 sapphire / andor clock/core speeds? 915/1100 works fine for ltc, and 930/400 works fine for btc... any lower on the memory and I get a skyshow in my monitor.

But the main thing is, on the pool website, I am not seeing anything change for my worker - it's hash rate is there, the pool stats, block stats are changing, but I'm not seeing anything from the rounds I assume I'm participating in.

Your Current Hashrate
360 KH/s

Paid Shares [All submitted shares from previous rounds which are already accounted and paid for.]
Your Valid: 0
Invalid: 0

Unpaid Shares [Submitted shares between the last 120 confirms block until now.]
Your Valid: 1531
Pool Valid: 153332

Round Shares [Submitted shares since last found block (ie. round shares)]
Pool Valid: 10331

Round Estimate
1.97700406 FTC

Account Balance
0 FTC

am I just missing something, or is something missing... someone throw me an intelligence potion please..

Oo

Round Estimate
1.97700406 FTC  that's your current round info :)

as far as the vid card settings, i'm not an owner of an ATI card so it might be different, but with my Nvidia card i too struggle with intensity settings on cgminer, sometimes 11 works, sometimes it crashes within 30 seconds.

I'ld give cudaminer a try if i were you, see what rates you get there :)

Having this same problem. Will tip feathercoin to whoever helps get it working.

Round Estimate
1.97700406 FTC  that's your current round info :)

as far as the vid card settings, i'm not an owner of an ATI card so it might be different, but with my Nvidia card i too struggle with intensity settings on cgminer, sometimes 11 works, sometimes it crashes within 30 seconds.

I'ld give cudaminer a try if i were you, see what rates you get there :)

Hmm, not sure about cuda, isn't that specifically for nvidia chipsets? I think I tried it on the spare pc in the living room which has an nvidia card, and was getting 1-2kh/s which made me realise that turning the pc on to test it was costing more than any amount returned from mining with it ;)

Not that this factors into why Im doing all this.

I have no idea what it was, perhaps I'd started it in a funky state, but I stopped the miner entirely, rechecked the configs, changed them back to what I had originally - with shaders @ 5760, I'd read that it could be a problem somewhere - and now it's running @350+-Kh/s with 0 HW errors. I can tell it's back to normal as typing is like using a tablet. Intensity at 16 currently.

6.3FTC in the round estimate now. I think I worked out what I was misinterpreting on the pool server.   a 24hr estimate of 1,291.484 ? ha.. when I see it I'll believe it. And even then what really is a ftc worth )

Somehow through all the confusion, there are tiny little slithers of sense being made. One day I'll know something else ! That is a nice concept :

Cheers for the advice tho!

execute your normal cgminer command line, and add --fix-protocol in the end, that should remove those messages.

It is, however, an indication that you are connected to the pool. A few posts ago, there was a new port for the pool, fpool1.zapto.org:28339 , but you have to register on the website to get an account, perhaps that'll give more results? :)

I can confirm that the stats are working. Little slow but working now and the web interface is actually pretty informative. The hash rate of the pool is only 380 Khashes/s at the moment so join us and give some power :)

you're getting those messages because your miner is only talking the stratum protocol which the pool doesn't support (yet?). disable it and you're good to go.

Strange issue. I turned on cgminer on a machine that I get ~800khs with when mining litecoin. Attempting to mine feathercoin I am getting less than 30. Anyone else having this problem, or can anybody provide some insight?

This happens to me from time to time as well, and I'm not sure of the exact problem. I'll get 290Kh/s out of Litecoin..and if I stop and restart it sometimes it goes down to 20Kh/s. If I switch to another alt coin, it stays around that 20Kh/s until I reboot my PC. After that, mining Litecoin (or any other alt on first run) goes at the normal 290.

Hmm...

Enable UPNP in the FeatherCoin client and your router, or forward port 9336 to the computer running the FeatherCoin QT client, and configure your firewall to let the client listen on that port.

Are the confirmations faster than Litecoin? Does it have any other unique characteristics from Litecoin apart from a larger coin size?

Trying to decide whether this is worth dedicating any mining resources to.

I'm on a University network, so port forwarding is out of the question. UPnP is enabled in the client and opening the port through the firewall has done nothing. Also, running as admin hasn't helped. As a point of reference, my litecoin-qt and bitcoin-qt work just fine.

I get problems accessing certain sites such as youtube when on the campus ethernet and noticed that having both enabled tends to prevent it from happening.

I've got another test up here http://fpool1.zapto.org:15005/
Longpolling with share difficulty of 3, but I haven't gotten a block yet to test (best share 16.7k / 65.5k )


Running good so far. It's nice to see so many shares vs how it was with the p2p. I know the payout is very similar, but you know, instant gratification.

Yeah it's nice for the low kh/s to have less variance. I tested "diff 3" with 12 kh/s and it seemed to give a reasonable rate of shares without flooding 1.7 MH/s . The only thing I don't like about pushpool is that the server has a wallet that it pays from. I'd much rather have the payout go like P2Pool with the transactions tied to the block rather than holding the whole block reward locally and paying out from there.

How is your stale rate?

Sorry for the delay, but I let it run overnight. My stale rate is very very low. 32k accepted, ~150 rejected @220kh/s.

Since payouts on found blocks do not commence until the found block gets 100 confirmations.. you will see that delay in payments.

This is where you decide that you'll either stick with the new coin and hope/think it will go somewhere, or jump ship back to btc/ltc to make some moolah that's readily available now.

I'm not entirely sure what you are asking, but you can run the FC client on one machine, and then point all of your CPU/GPUs to that local computer, connecting with cgminer or something to 192.168.*.* (whatever your IP is), and mine that way.

The diff is up to 230k.  For a script coin, this is difficult.  It's right up with litecoin now.

It's so far away in terms of difficulty from litecoin at this time.

Has no one noticed since it started, it's been jumping x4 each retarget? This is the lowest difficulty jump yet at only x3.5... not to mention it's scrypt difficulty is only 3.5 as opposed to litecoin which is 364... so it's x100 away from litecoin still. Besides, difficulty is a good sign of a surviving coin, it's difficulty won't go up unless people support it (unless it's prone to asic, which it's not at the moment).

Have you defined the path to your Berkeley DB folder?

You will need to do the same for Boost and OpenSSL.

1) So I'm trying to mine at this pool: stratum+tcp://mine.altpool.com:3333
And I'm getting this constantly so it's not accepting any shares:
Code:
stratum from pool 0 requested work restart
stratum from pool 0 requested work restart
stratum from pool 0 requested work restart
stratum from pool 0 requested work restart
stratum from pool 0 requested work restart

I've tried using the --fix-protocol command for cgminer, but all it does is increase my hash rate :D But it doesn't stop that message. So I'm still getting no shares.

2) When mining at other FC pools, I don't seem to be getting very many shares either. There are a couple of people that got roughly 200FC in 12 hours with 100khash. I've got 1000khash and I left it for 3 hours and only managed to get 26FC.

If anyone can help with either of these problems that would be great!

I'm almost always pro alt coins, but mincoin was a disaster.  Terrible launch idea.  I see no adoption future for it at all.  The only people that have any interest in it now, are those that mined it the first day.

Feathercoin's launch was better, although I still would prefer an "announcement" period before the official launch.

I'd like to solo-mine FeatherCoins, but my hashrate is very low. So I thought, if it's possible, I'd try to solo-pool mine it - I mean to create my own pool of clients to add their hashrates. Is there a simple way to do it? If so, how? Can I use pooler's CPU miner?

Seriously guys, how can I create my own mini-pool? Not sure if worth to bother after the difficulty jump, though...

I'm not entirely sure what you are asking, but you can run the FC client on one machine, and then point all of your CPU/GPUs to that local computer, connecting with cgminer or something to 192.168.*.* (whatever your IP is), and mine that way. Is that what you mean? You'd be solo-"pool" mining yourself?

Exactly. What I tried, that I started feathercoin-qt like this:

./feathercoin-qt -listen -rpcuser=faszom -rpcpassword=faszom -rpcallowip=127.0.0.1

I'm really not sure if I really need all these parameters, I just kept trying and added more parameters as I was trying without success.

Then I started CPUminer like this:

minerd --userpass faszom:faszom --url http://127.0.0.1:9336

Then I get this output from minerd:

Code:
[2013-04-18 20:59:22] 2 miner threads started, using 'scrypt' algorithm.

Simultenously, this appears in the debug.log of feathercoin-qt:

Code:
accepted connection 127.0.0.1:56132


PROCESSMESSAGE MESSAGESTART NOT FOUND

First I was trying to connect different machines, but when it didn't work, I thought to experiment on localhost first to shoot out possible network or IP blacklisting problems.

It must be something obvious... It looks like if they weren't talking the same protocol - but then how do I point a miner to my client?

You get paid after the block gets 120 confirmations. And with the difficulty increase that just happened, blocks will be coming a bit slower as some people drop back to litecoin/other alt coins.

Isn't Litecoin only at 337k?  Doesn't seem that far away given the rate FC reached 230k.

Is this drastic difficulty increase in response to a drastic increase in miners?  Or is the difficulty scaling more nuanced?

Re: FC difficulty...  am I misreading cgminer then? 
  • The Feather wallet says difficulty 3.5

Someone explained it in an earlier post how cgminer is based on bitcoin difficulty or something. Anyways, just pultiply the wallet difficulyt by 65k and you'll roughly get the cgminer diff.

Actually the 230k is the number of difficult 1 shares you need in average to find a block.
The scrypt difficulty works like this: A block with difficulty 1 needs 65536 diff. 1 shares.
Since the diff is 3.5 at the moment you get 3.5 * 65536 = 230k.

And on a side note: One diff 1 share needs 65536 hashes.

the pools are PPLNS, and it takes about that long to begin getting blocks to mature.

wait another 1-2 hours and you should see your balance increase at the proper rate.

For example:

- Setting up a FeatherCoin.org site
- Setting up the first exchange
- Making a Logo and some other graphics
- Setting up a faucet
- Setting up some FC related websites (simple versions of Satoshi Dice etc)
- Anything else worthwhile

This coin has massive interest, and very good fundamentals as an alt coin being based on LTC for fast confirms and transactions, and is ASIC proof.

Litecoin's little brother :)

I was thinking, right now litecoin's difficulty is about 104x harder than feathercoin for mining.  also you get 4x as many feathercoins when you mine (200 vs. litecoin's 50 per block)  so a rough valuation of 1 ltc= 416  FC?

Oh.. what is the maximum Feathercoins that will be ever created?  is it 4x84= 336mill?

Yup 336m... and 1ltc=416fc is kind of vague, because we can technically achieve a difficulty 4x higher than litecoins but still have less total fc if that amount of hashing power was to ever jump in at one time lol. Current prices in the forums are actually around 50-100fc per 1 ltc

To keep FeatherCoin hashrates segregated, and to dust off my VPS, I have brought up a pool.

http://feathercoin.is-a-geek.com (http://feathercoin.is-a-geek.com)

It is a 0% Fee PPLNS pool.

Pushpool backend with mmcFE front end. A Few parts of the front end are not working (hashrates, global stats, etc.) But the nuts and bolts appear to be going fine.

Feel free to jump on if you want.

Well, yes, I do feel FC is more valuable right now than that figure, 416LTC, due to demand and speculation as to where it may go in the future.  Its at least a low figure to gauge from at this moment.

Who here has a load of FC and wants to sponsor some bounties?

For example:

- Setting up a FeatherCoin.org site
- Setting up the first exchange
- Making a Logo and some other graphics
- Setting up a faucet
- Setting up some FC related websites (simple versions of Satoshi Dice etc)
- Anything else worthwhile

This coin has massive interest, and very good fundamentals as an alt coin being based on LTC for fast confirms and transactions, and is ASIC proof.

Litecoin's little brother :)

We should make it happen!

I have a VPS, I could put up the sites (or help with them) but I have no FC because I don't have a mining rig :/

I used the exact same settings as I do for litecoin mining, just pointed the miner at the FC Simple Pool.

Did I miss something? Any help is appreciated!

Check the Confirmations. You get paid when they are complete. It can take some time as they need 120 each.

I thought the same thing last night, but then all came good.

Having some issues with more than I though in the pool: http://feathercoin.is-a-geek.com


I have turned off the pool for now, and once all shares are confirmed tomorrow (after I get some sleep) I will manually pay out the correct amount after calculating it.

Please make sure to have a payout address in the system or pm my your username on the site and payout address.

I will payout per share, as opposed to PPLNS method simply because the back-end accounting is not working.

if you are running on windows, close you miner and open up a cmd window and run this "setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100"
It'll say success.. then close that window.  Now open up and run cgminer.   try setting your thread-concurrency to 4X the shaders.  You still may have some trouble going above I13.. but it'll help.  I trying to improve mine too and thats what i've come accross so far.

Seems connecting is very erratic, and then I'm getting rejected errors, and I've even rebooted to ensure it's not something to do with the miner.

You can use the command below to make cgminer switch automatic between pushpool and p2pool. You can even add a third if needed

cgminer --scrypt -o http://fpool1.zapto.org:28339 -u username.1 -p x -o stratum+tcp://fpool1.zapto.org:19327 -u YourFcAddress -p x -s 1 --expiry 1 --queue 0 -I 13

Ahha ;) for how long.. I'll leave it going I guess, it's a little slower than before but better than nothing.

I was wondering When does the difficulty change ?
How can I know it ? What is the next difficulty estimate ?

I'm running two 7970's with CGMiner to mine FC.

When I'm at I=12 I average around 230k/s

As soon as I up the Intensity, I get a ton of hardware errors.

here's what I'm starting CGMiner with:

cgminer --crypt  -o stratum+tcp://mine.altpool.com:3333/ -s 1 --expiry 1 --queue 0 -u user -p x --shaders 2048 --intensity 13 --fix-protocol --thread-concurrency 4800

Any help/advice would be appreciated. Still getting the hang of tweaking my settings.

I had a simmiliar issue, try adding more gpu threads by putting " -g 2" or" -g 3"

It changes every 2016 blocks, so what you can do, is find out what the next 2016 increment block is, which in this case is 16,128. Then just see how many blocks pass in say, an hour and just estimate how many hours it'll get to 16,128 with the number you got. FYI hovering the mouse over the check mark on the bottom right of your feathercoin-qt client gets you the current block.


On another note, I've been doing solo mining, but lately (the last day or so) every few hours or less my feathercoin-qt.exe would stop responding randomly and then I'd have to be on to restart it so my miners can resume mining. Any clue why it does this? It only occurs if I'm solo mining, if I'm mining in a pool it doesn't seem to do it.

it is, if i'ld mine LTC in a pool with my current hashrate, or i mine FC, i get about 4.03 times as many FC as LTC :)

Can you mine with the built-in mining in the windows client ? Or do you need to set up external mining software ?

My address is 6zG3pZ53WguJXnV5ZgFiA3NQb19VaszXcy if someone is feeling generous, send me some coins please to see if it's working right.

Hmm, I keep seeing

 Pool 0 communication failure, caching submissions

in my cgminer window, for http://fpool1.zapto.org:28339 ?

Seems to have just started appearing within the last 30 mins or so..

is that normal? I am seeing with this : Pool 0 share became stale while retrying submit, discarding

 ??? ???


Yea there seems to be issues now... it was smooth a few hours ago.. rough now.. i get the same thing.

Running smoothly again


I have a lot of stale (30%) and I keep seeing  Pool 0 stale share detected, submitting as user requested

Am I the only one ?

I got also around 30% stale on this pool with 7950's, had to switch it on http://mine.altpool.com/ stratum and so far I have around 2% stale.

But my minor miner under 100khash have around 5% stale max for  http://fpool1.zapto.org

Remember that zapto.org runs both pushpool and p2pool.

The p2pool works great for me.

Having some issues with more than I though in the pool: http://feathercoin.is-a-geek.com


I have turned off the pool for now, and once all shares are confirmed tomorrow (after I get some sleep) I will manually pay out the correct amount after calculating it.

Please make sure to have a payout address in the system or pm my your username on the site and payout address.

I will payout per share, as opposed to PPLNS method simply because the back-end accounting is not working.

Payouts made. Still missing a few Wallet ID's, but all the rest have bee sent. See txid: ad957d09b9102f84bac70f1cf89c236496dffa84a826487c48fbfd572fcb42fc

Received them, thanks p33t! Let us know if you get the pool running again. I tried paul21's pool earlier but I'm only getting half or less of my hashing power due to all the stales :(

I didn't get the exact times since I've only gotten two transactions and I haven't been able to track them start from finish, but from the looks of it the FC tx times definitely seem faster than LTC. It's also been posted on the main List of Cryptocurrencies that it's 4x faster.

As for the pool stales I think it's from an overburdening of the servers?

No, this is a more abundant version of LiteCoin. I'm not sure how well the network would handle four more times the amount of blocks in a single period. I think something along those lines have been tried before with some issues.

Many thanks for the official reply.

The cryptocurrency list states: FC FeatherCoin- yet another LTC clone. 4 times more coins, 4 times faster. Is it ok if I post in that topic alerting the author that it's 4 times more coins but not 4 times faster? Or..?

Btw I am not bashing the coin, I am creating a topic to buy some later... just want to know the actual facts.

The current pools have not been up long and considering this is a new coin we can expect some teething problems. Ideally I'd like to see this coin on Coinotron but we are still in the early stages.

Out of interest what pool were you using?

400+ KH/S overnight and not a single share registered. Double checked all info and now the pool is down. All I got was 100+ 'we found a block' emails but no payout or share.

I was having trouble getting a connection started with the same pool last night. I don't know if they were having too many connections at once or what. I tried a couple more times and it eventually connected and stayed connected all night. I've been paid out multiple times since and the stats update as they should online.

No offence but I'm presuming user error.

Conflicting user info seems to be the case. Pool is down on some ports, has faulty info and no one knows for sure what info to use. Seems it 'might' be working now on a different port, with unregistered info. Hah

I'm calling scam (not just useless coin) on this entire 'operation'. Pools don't pay out, obvious 'pre mining' for a small group of early adopters and NO early adoption of coin except for forum sales.

Have you tried the FC Simple Pool?  I have been using it for 30 hours and have received multiple payouts.  Point your cgminer here:  http://fpool1.zapto.org:28339

I don't think it's a scam. There is no premine, and pools used to pay regular yesterday. Altpool is still working and accepting my shares, though website is under maintance now.

Depends heavily on what you call premine. First 5 miners threw something like 5MH @ mining and scraped together millions of coins in hours at ultra low difficulty. Launching an altcoin with 200 block reward and early miners finding 1000s of blocks an hour qualifies as premine to me.

i'ld call it "being at the right place at the right time" :)

besides, when i started solomining, i threw 8 khash/sec at it, got 50 blocks in 12 hours, since then, 1114 FC from pooled mining.

There's less than 4 million coins... so you're saying 5 people have all coins? lol if you want to call something a premine look at Mincoin that has 2mnc/block but gave people 500/block the first days worth of blocks, 100/block the 2nd day and 50/block the 3rd

Nothing. You might not hit a block (share while solo mining) for a day at that hash rate.

Where are you getting that figure of 5GH from?

Anyway I see your point. There was significant hash power quite early on, but it seems to be from a lot of people picking up this coin and not just from some major miners. I actually think we have had a fairly decent early distribution of coins as so many people got in early. I hope that these people now stick around to help build this coin.

Hey you never know.

Even if you announce it ahead of time those mining corps will be waiting with their large rigs, and even more concerning is the fact that it gives people the time to organise attacks on the coin in advance like poor BBQCoin. PPCoin announced a week ahead of time and ended up getting 2 million coins mined in a day. There are arguments for and against announcing new coins. Mincoin took things to an interesting new level :)

Are there any other pools than AltPool and FCPool? AltPool is down, and I submitted hundreds of shares to FCPool, and it never registered a single share on my account.

Altpool Front end is down, however it's still accepting shares and paying(which does take forever with 120 confirms and the server getting hammered)

Same problem here. Went to put up ~4 mh/s on the network. All settings perfect, hundreds of shares submitted, pool showing 2, at a speed of 1 kh/s. Tried both pushpull and longpool versions stated earlier. altpool is down (cant register). There's some issue here, as the same settings mining LTC are perfectly fine.

I'm calling scam (not just useless coin) on this entire 'operation'. Pools don't pay out, obvious 'pre mining' for a small group of early adopters and NO early adoption of coin except for forum sales.

Have you tried the FC Simple Pool?  I have been using it for 30 hours and have received multiple payouts.  Point your cgminer here:  http://fpool1.zapto.org:28339

I don't think it's a scam. There is no premine, and pools used to pay regular yesterday. Altpool is still working and accepting my shares, though website is under maintance now.

Depends heavily on what you call premine. First 5 miners threw something like 5MH @ mining and scraped together millions of coins in hours at ultra low difficulty. Launching an altcoin with 200 block reward and early miners finding 1000s of blocks an hour qualifies as premine to me.

There's less than 4 million coins... so you're saying 5 people have all coins? lol if you want to call something a premine look at Mincoin that has 2mnc/block but gave people 500/block the first days worth of blocks, 100/block the 2nd day and 50/block the 3rd

Did I ever say 5 people have 'all coin' or are you just mentally challenged?

I agree that this coin was a bit unfair. Why was there no notice given? If there's no warning or notice at least make the starting difficulty a little bit higher

Just a friendly heads-up: I did register initially at AltPool, and they were great. It took a bit of time to get my PPLNS to get rolling due to confirmations, but once I got it... It was amazing.

Yeah, i'm very familiar with mining and the different reward systems. Since altpool is down for registration, and the other pool is performing horribly (literally counting 1 out of every 500+ shares - not stales, just not showing up on pool site), i'm dead in the water at the moment.

Having some issues with more than I though in the pool: http://feathercoin.is-a-geek.com


I have turned off the pool for now, and once all shares are confirmed tomorrow (after I get some sleep) I will manually pay out the correct amount after calculating it.

Please make sure to have a payout address in the system or pm my your username on the site and payout address.

I will payout per share, as opposed to PPLNS method simply because the back-end accounting is not working.

Payouts made. Still missing a few Wallet ID's, but all the rest have bee sent. See txid: ad957d09b9102f84bac70f1cf89c236496dffa84a826487c48fbfd572fcb42fc



Received them, thanks p33t! Let us know if you get the pool running again. I tried paul21's pool earlier but I'm only getting half or less of my hashing power due to all the stales :(

It is back up now. I have fixed everything except accurate khash/sec (I think). It is correct proportionality, but I cannot seem to nail down how to keep it within 1/5-2x the actual rate...

Only thing I was unable to test was account payouts. Hopefully they work this time. If not, I will manually be paying out again.

PLEASE NOTE: In doing this rewrite, I had to wipe the database. Signup should be working, as well as the password recovery feature.

Started moving some hashrate your way. Your pool is working perfectly for me in comparison to the others. Will move over 1mh/s at a time.

EDIT: i notice my est. payout is a bit nuts  428,398.057 /day. I'm guessing theres something wrong with the calc on the pool site? Also, my hashrate is not going above 440, even though im throwing well over double that at the network.


Title: Re: FeatherCoin - New Litecoin based coin
Post by: thep33t on April 19, 2013, 09:17:28 PM

Well if 5 people mined "millions" of coins within the first few hours, then yes I would be assuming that by 4 days later, with only 3.5 million coins, that that you would be suggesting that.

My stale rate mining litecoin with a pool is ~1% with the same cgminer gpu config.
I added  --expiry 1 --queue 0, as suggested to another member.
I fowarded port 9336, and have 11 active connections currently.
I currently am solo mining, and have 1 accepts and 5 rejects in a time frame of ~3 hours.

I find it highly likely that a small group of people sit on maybe 2 million coins when they started hashing with several MH when difficulty was 0.0000X , don't forget that difficulty at that level goes up exponentially with fast hardware and only hours after the first several thousand blocks have been mined diff would be 100s of times higher.

If you think that they will become rich now, go and take 20'000 $ out of your pocket, buy mining hardware and get a hashrate of 30 mHash and you will have your million coin too very soon.

Maybe a little under 1.5 million is believable. I started mining it 6 hours in and we were only on like block 6000 or so. But I see where you're coming from. Either way, the release is still better than some other coins around :)

This is a p2pool block: http://cryptocoinexplorer.com:5750/block/ca2ae3c71d20dab9c2fb2e08d2a5e083440472b7a22dd5f2f046976269f08c39

"networkhashps" : 270156152 270MH/s


So basically useless to try to mine with over 250 MH/S online after 3 days vs. scrypt based altcurrency. Gotcha!

Added a new P2Pool server for FeatherCoin

[ANN][P2Pool][FeatherCoin] pool.feathercoin.cc - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=180983 (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=180983)

Fire the cannons!
Just put up 1mh/s here as well. It's having the same issues as the other new pools though, 0 blocks being found. Theres a block being generated right now every 30 seconds on average, why are none of the pools solving these blocks?

http://cryptocoinexplorer.com:5750/chain/Feathercoin

Also wondering where these blocks are 'going' to be honest..

Most likely not, but let's figure this out.

1 MH/s is 1/250~ of the network.

50 blocks/hour approx are found currently

so roughly 1200 a day for 240000 coins

240000/250 = 960 coins/day

OK, Newb question...

On the feathercoin.is-a.geek.com site, there's a section that says  Estimated Per Payout

What does that mean? Is that the total FC I've collected so far? Or is it a multiplier for the shares that I have gathered??

Understood, why am i then over an hour into mining there and my reward showing only 0.5 FC? is it because of the 100k pplns? because, at this rate, im looking at 12 fc/day, which is nowhere near correct.

It's partly from that, and partly from the fact that it takes over an hour to get any blocks to confirm. Your steady state earnings should be  Rounds/Hour * Round Estimate

So 1 MH/s should be something like 1.2-1.5 estimate, and currently 30 blocks/hour puts it at 30-45 FC/hour

You can also go to the transaction log and click unconfirmed to see some estimates for unpaid blocks. It's a lengthy query though, so expect to wait for it to load.

Exactly. What I tried, that I started feathercoin-qt like this:

./feathercoin-qt -listen -rpcuser=faszom -rpcpassword=faszom -rpcallowip=127.0.0.1

I'm really not sure if I really need all these parameters, I just kept trying and added more parameters as I was trying without success.

Then I started CPUminer like this:

minerd --userpass faszom:faszom --url http://127.0.0.1:9336

Then I get this output from minerd:

Code:
[2013-04-18 20:59:22] 2 miner threads started, using 'scrypt' algorithm.

[2013-04-18 21:00:52] json_rpc_call failed, retry after 30 seconds

Simultenously, this appears in the debug.log of feathercoin-qt:

Code:
accepted connection 127.0.0.1:56132


PROCESSMESSAGE MESSAGESTART NOT FOUND


This is an indication that you're trying to talk to the coin daemon on the wrong port.

Your "minerd --userpass faszom:faszom --url http://127.0.0.1:9336"
says you want to talk on the port 9336.

However you don't start the daemon with --rpcport=9336.
"./feathercoin-qt -listen -rpcuser=faszom -rpcpassword=faszom -rpcallowip=127.0.0.1"
according to you.

Try adding "--rpcport=9336" to that.


I'd run ./feathercoind and not ./feathercoin-qt, but I guess that the options are the same.

Could it be that the donation is % based, and the pool pplns? Hence, the longer you mine, the closer you get to your maximum payout, and thus your donation amounts increase along with this.

It's working for me: http://fc.dontmine.me/statsAuth

Though my reported hash rate is bouncing around a lot... ranging by as much as 50% at times.  I'm guessing thats due to FC blocks coming so fast and furious.  Once the difficulty goes up blocks will come more slowly and things will stabilize.

Look under transactions and on the upper right of the list you'll see unconfirmed. Click on that and scroll of to the bottom and you'll see the total you have unconfirmed. I actually just found that out myself lol, that's what I was looking.

I don't care.  Why would you ask a question where a statement of fact would be more appropriate?  My donation % on FC Simple Pool is 0%, but yet an increasing amount is being "donated" with no statement anywhere as to where this is coming from, why or at what rate.  Maybe it is Bullshit pool, not Bullshit coin, but I've wasted all the time I intend to on this.

I've run it between 0 and 1%, usually 0.2% but it gets rounded a little bit so your net was 0.45%.

If you don't like it go somewhere else; it costs me time and money (and FC when I make a mistake) to run the pool for a coin that can't pay the bills. It's just for personal enjoyment, no need to get so tense about it.

Were you looking for a free pool?  Servers do cost money and I believe a 2% fee is very reasonable.

The only thing I can think of is placing the fee in the 'About' area also?

Using the currently most popular Bitcoin pool as as example, going to www.btcguid.com includes text that is very clear on what to pool fees are:
Quote
BTC Guild offers two methods for miners to receive payments. Pay-per-Share (PPS) provides miners with the lowest variance of any pool payment system, at a 5% fee, and Pay-per-Last-N-Shares (PPLNS), at a 3% fee, which has some variance, but also includes block transaction fees.

Once I saw that there was a fee being subtracted from my mining, I really did try to go through the different pages of the pool to find an explanation and could not find one.  I certainly understand a pool does have costs associated to it.  With such a new coin, and the pool as well, I was too quick to come to a point of judgement (shame on me) but I do suggest that stating any and all fees early and often is always a good approach.  The fees you ARE charging do appear to be more than reasonable, given the circumstances.

A 0.2% fee is very low. Cryptocurrency fees are a common thing, so one should expect it. It being on every page you visit, IMHO, is more than enough to justify the miniscule fee.

Hey guys,

I'm trying to solo mine FC.

I've setup my feathercoin.conf file per guides, lauched feathercoin-qt as a server.

I run my cgminer with http://127.0.0.1:8100 with correct -u and -p, hashing at a reasonable rate.

Cgminer shows:

Probing for alive pool
No suitable long-poll found for http://127.0.0.1:8100
New block detected on network (and on and on)

My questions are:

*  Am I now solo mining?
* Do I need to see the "pool 0 alive http://127.0.0.1:8100" in cgminer or doesn't that matter when solo mining?
* Do I need to click on the "start mining" button in the feathercoin-qt mining window? Or can I ignore that completely and just launch cgminer?

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: My feathercoin.conf file contains:

server=1
daemon=1
rpcuser=miner
rpcpassword=12345
rpcport=8100

You are correctly solo mining. The difficulty is high enough that it may take a long time to solve a block. I would suggest joining the pool linked in below to mine.

http://fc.dontmine.me/

Ignore the mining tab in the GUI and use cgminer.


Title: Re: FeatherCoin - New Litecoin based coin
Post by: trinsic on April 20, 2013, 12:07:25 PM
That's how solo mining works, you don't get shares you get entire blocks and you simply have to wait till you solve a block with no indication of when.

* If cgminer connects then you've basically answered your question as to if you're mining. cgminer wont do anything otherwise.
* If it's dead it wont mine.
* No, that's for CPU mining, just launch cgminer.

New block being detected is normal. The only other command you'll see is an accepted/rejected of the block.

You are correctly solo mining. The difficulty is high enough that it may take a long time to solve a block. I would suggest joining the pool linked in below to mine.

http://fc.dontmine.me/

Ignore the mining tab in the GUI and use cgminer.

Quick question on the pool - on the manual cash out option, it says it charges a 0.1 ltc fee. I'm guess typo? :D

Yes it is, it's 0.1 FC :-)

I found same amount it's charged by other FC pools. I also found same fee applies in case of very low amount payment from my wallet to another one. (0.03 FC). It says the 0.1 will go to nodes confirming transactions.

cgminer uses a factor of 65536 * difficulty, i.e. 7.7 * 65536 = 509k

cgminer uses a factor of 65536 * difficulty, i.e. 7.7 * 65536 = 509k

But will cgminer ever report a found block back to the network then?
 
I thought it only reports it to the network if it's difficulty is higher than the requested difficulty (which is 509k), no?

Also cgminer always reports "Best share: 0". Isn't that supposed to increase once cgminer is running (a long time)?

I have asked Coinotron to add FC but he says that supporting this coin right now would require a lot of work. I completely understand what he is saying, as he already has his hands full. I am still working on changing his mind and I am sure we will see FC on Coinotron eventually.

Altpool.com still seems to have some issues but all coins mined are being honoured. Payments have to be done manually at the moment. I have asked viperaus to update me when he gets the site fully functional again so I can add it to the first post.

Yep, same with sending from your own wallet I think, I sent some ltc to btc-e to test how things work, and it ripped .2 (iirc) of a ltc off me for the pleasure. The litecoin wallet that is.

There is a miner in the one pool with over 36,000 khs  and about 10 miners ther with 10,000+

Indeed, I noticed them appear about the same time the pool started to have connection problems and wouldn't let me connect.

Feels a bit like I was walking in a park picking berries off a tree when along comes a bulldozer and clears up all the trees. lol

I have been using Cpuminer; and with a 64 bit Win 7 getting 16+ KHashes/s (the continuous PC uses 32 bit and generates 12-13 KHash/s). I am also using Altpool; as it seems to be giving me 4-5 times payout than any other!!

I actually just use the 'wallet miner'; but in this case I tried command also; exactly the same as given in support. Its weird because its connecting with all other pools.

Anyways, don't sweat; - its 5-6 kHash/s only.

1 share every 30 mins isn't right at all, i get like 30 an hour using my CPU at 22 khash/sec....

Solomining is about finding blocks, not shares :) so if you didn't get any coins, that mining was for nothing....

you are using cgminer, correct?

I've had much better success using the cudaMiner here on the forums (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=167229.0), been using it for the last week or so and its only been getting better the last two revisions added 2% more khash/s each, i'm now up too 117 kh/s with 1.25% rejected compared too the 40-50kh/s i get with cgminer, on my aging GTX460. I seen there was someone else with a 520 GTX getting 20kh/s you should be getting the same since the GT610 is just a rebrand of the GT520.

Post by: MarKusRomanus on April 21, 2013, 02:32:03 AM
What kind of hashing power are you talking about?  The short answer is no.  You can always try to luck out on solo mining at a low hash rate.

After some time, and you'll keep getting paid for a few hours after you stopped mining. That's because of pplns system. Keep mining and your income will go up.

The network is up to 400 MH/s , 3.8% of litecoin

Please spread out on different pools to avoid too much hashrate on a single one.

All I know about are

Paul21, you've been a straight up guy from the start. Thanks for going that extra mile to show you aren't trying to be shady.

Indeed +1

Sorted out any probs I had as soon as I mentioned them, and even requesting people try to keep taking their money out rather than leave it on the server wallet, can't expect anything more and yet there's then some!

Hey, nice!

I got a few donations when I woke up today, thanks you guys!

So far I'm at :

Estimated Per Payout
0.174838 FC

Account Balance
0.541821 FC

at the is-a-geek pool with ~7Kh/s for 10 hours


56FC in donations, though :)

That means, officially, my first 1+ crypto coins EVAR!!!

I'll always remember feathercoin fondly, if only for that. In the meantime it looks like people have hopped on most of the obvious things for setting up a little ecosystem (so to speak) for this. I've got some weak PHP skills and a shared server (or two ) available.  Any ideas for fun things to do?

Since I actually have some I would love to see this go somewhere even if I missed the real 'gold rush' ...

Daemon and QT client are separate builds.

Easiest way to compile the QT version is to use QT creator to compile it using the feathercoin-qt.pro file

This goes for any of the coins daemons/clients one compiles themselves.

Let's see what the next 24 hours brings.

I find it a combination of being able to use the pc and living with a lower hash rate, or stripping back the services and desktop and letting it go at full throttle... I have to stop it pretty much if I want to watch anything on the web tho lol.

It would be entirely different if I had a dedicated rig for it. Set and forget, but this way feels more of an achievement when I see an amount.

Haha 10 fc every 3 hours or so at the current difficulty, if I'm using the PC. Almost IS work :)

Yargh!! Just noticed the difficulty has doubled again.

Haha. sleep, you foul sneaking thief of time you !!!

Get a 79xx amd cards in your computer, and you mine at full speed + use the computer.

Nvidia cards is much slower and its also makes it hard to use the computer :)

I've got an HD5850 oc/d to 950/1175 (it fails after a time at 1200) and with intensity 18 I get about 400khashs/s and I'm also running poolers cpu miner pulling about 20khash/s on 4cores with my q6600. But that renders the desktop sluggish and unresponsive as heck.

If I drop the intensity to 13-14 it's barely noticeable. But then I get 200khash/s or less if something takes over the video on the main screen.

I've got 2 monitors, main one on the hd5850 and the secondary (15 inch for notifications etc) on the onboard intel gpu.

My cgminer startup is

cgminer.exe --scrypt -o http://fc.dontmine.me:28339/ -u [MyLogin] -p x --expiry 1 -s 1 --queue 0 --shaders 1440 -I 14 -g 1 -w 256 --thread-concurrency 5600

but this has been constantly changing as I was trying to sort out the best settings not really know how they affect the rates. I start it at I:14 and then in the miner change it via gpu settings.

Does that seem about right, or do you think there is anything that should be changed?

At this I seem to get the best hash rate from DontMineMe, and I don't really know about the expirey and queue, which Paul has said on is website can be changed now, but I changed them and noticed no difference.

?!

I can't complain. It was on a whim a few years back I got AMD over Nvidia, and there have been times I kicked myself for it. but not at this point. THe gaming has pretty much ceased and to see it working and getting reasonable rates by comparison to other hd5850 set ups is ok.

I couldn't afford a 79xx range card at the moment, but there is always a reason to find justification should this one blow up from being caned. It will be where I put my money for sure!

I can still get 120 or so coins a day if I prioritise my use. ;)

eta -

Well I just found out I had an old version of sapphire trixx installed, which was fooling me to thinking I was altering the vdcc. checked cgminer and it was still at the defaults.. so I upgraded trixx and then when I go to set the old settings, bam. lock up. haha.

urgh.. so if I push the voltage up slightly then set my clock/mem to the same settings, it reboots. Crap!

Which means I've been increasing things to get minimal improvements, when I get the same from marginal increases. temps <68 now where I was hovering under 80 to be safe... ohh glad I found that out as it's better to be pulling 320khsash/s at 68c than 85c with desktop use. But now I also feel back to square one in what settings I thought I had sorted. Bit like tuning a bike while drunk, you don't really know till you're going at 120kph down the freeway if the engine will rattle out and you'll fall off. oO

stoopid amd lol

either that or the trixx utility has gone awry and making things up as it goes. I know amd removed the oc support and I need the dlls to affect the changes, but I'd have no idea where to look to get updated unsupported files from amd, the leaders in "Not touching my stuff!" guys!

Received a few PMs for CPU mining; so will just post here.

My two Core i3s have churned out some 20 FCs over the last 36 hours. I think the difficulty is supposed to increase soon so get in while you can.

I have been using Win 7 with AltPool, CPU Miner and Stratum. If you need help setting up the proxy go here https://give-me-ltc.com/faq#proxy
I am just using the wallet client to mine.

Happy mining :)

EDIT: Head over to grab the 5 FC giveaway. Also, if you are on BTC-e JustABitOfThough is giving out 20 FCs if you ask nicely.

It is more abundant than Litecoin as it has four many coins. This is to make it compliment Litecoin and not directly compete with it like Litecoin does to Bitcoin. This is not a choice between Litecoin and FeatherCoin as you can have both. Currently I hold Bitcoin, Litecoin and Feathercoin. That is what everyones portfolio should look like :)

I am busy building services for FeatherCoin right now and will return afterwards to the codebase to continue working on the clients. Right now I am working full time on FeatherCoin.

Having more coins doesn't really make any difference.
This seems worthless and a waste of time. Like keeping in your wallet not only money but also plain rocks and bullets. :D

Somehow i get a feeling that there ar more and more clone coins coming. Feathercoin's succes might be that it's an early clone.

But remember that you need to do some Vetting (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vetting) of each one if you going to send the money first.

Some alternatives are to send half first, less to loose ;)

Hey Guys - which pool is recommended to mine from?

Currently mining on mine.altpool.com - but the hashrate is only 50Mh/s atm, wondered if it's worth switching to fc.dontmine.me ? I have an account there and I know they have over half the network hashrate - will i actually gain anything by moving to a more popular pool?

Thanks

No I wouldn't switch.  The amount of FC you get won't change.  If you did switch the only advantage might be that you get your payouts a minute faster after you build them up (It is a PPLNS pool afterall).  But FC needs decentralization as much as possible in this early stage.  Even the guy that runs dontmine.me is recommending no one else mine at his pool right now for the sake of the coin. 

In short:  No reason to switch, and it benefits the coin to stay where you are.

But to be honest: the fc.dontmine.me-pool is working very good, has accurate stats and an actual fee of 0.2%, which is 10 times lower than the mine.altpool.com-pool has. Even if you add a donation of 1% of your income, its stil much "cheaper" to mine there.

That's true but altpool has stratum support and % of stales is <0.5%. Consider it calculating profits.

As I continue to give out coins to users at BTC-E, I noticed a bit of resistance I'd like to be able to overcome on a consistent basis. Here are the tough questions:

- Why bother with Feathercoin?
- Will Feathercoin include any different features to distinguish itself from Litecoin?
- Feathercoin is just a coin that is for people that missed the boat with Litecoin, right?
- We don't need another crypto coin, right? Too many, it confuses the public.
- Feathercoins difficulty is already too high!
- The developers just a few variables and called it a new coin


It would be nice if we had a website that addresses those issues. We could keep a consistent message and point users to the link.

The people on BTC-e want to trade. Put FeatherCoin on an exchange and they'll be interested in it. Until then you'll have a tough job convincing any of them. We have come along way in less than a week but we have much further to go.

We're certainly aligned about 90%, which is great! I agree the people at BTC-e certainly want to trade. However, bring up a coin such as NVC and you'll immediately hear 'Russian Scam Coin'. Bring up NMC and you'll hear how worthless it is because x,y,z.  As a new coin, ** I ** feel we need to be proactive. We have answers that address any type of FUD readily available.

Now, let's fast forward to other areas to spread Feathercoin.  Whether it's a bitcoin forum or a YouTube reply, I'd like to see us actively protecting the coin. Too much misinformation out there, imho, we should seek to professionally address and entice those to join us on this journey.

The traction we have gained so far has been incredible.

I'm also being realistic. This coin is never going to overtake Litecoin in market value. But that doesn't mean there isn't a place for it, as shown by the huge growth in network hash rate. All those Bitcoin miners are looking for another coin to mine and Feathercoin is looking quite attractive.

I'm also noticing much more in the way of bounties and 'community drive' than most other alt currencies...

Ive seen some people trading big amounts of FC and LTC payin around 12 - 15 LCT per 1000 FC.

Im asking myself why do people do that? I mean if you compare the difficulty, 374.94602749 (Litecoin) to 14.27208129 (FC) and keep in mind that the FC-blocks are 200 and not 50 coins worth, 1000 FC should be worth around 9.5 LC right now (14.27208129 / 374.94602749 / 4) = 9.51 LTC per 1000 FC

Or is my calculation wrong? Right now, there seems to be no reason to keep any miners on LTC.

Does anyone know if the Scrypt parameters of this coin are more memory intensive? That was the "error" ArtForz made at the beginning of Litecoin, the parameters weren't high enough and LTC is not GPU-hostile.

Because if the Scrypt parameters were adjusted and this coin is really GPU-hostile (at least more than LTC), THAT could be interesting...

Currently I hold Bitcoin, Litecoin and Feathercoin. That is what everyones portfolio should look like :)

haha, mine needs a little work, the FC is decently padded out, but ltc & btc are scarce.

btc and ltc only trickle in, but give me relatively the same real dollar value amount in comparison. Unsure what fc will ultimately be, so I'm focusing on that myself. It's hard to consider which one to stick my card at.

I am reminded of an old tactic they taught you when playing Privateer. Stick to the one ship, and take it out. Don't go after too many at once, or you'll end up not getting any.

Is there a stratum-mining-proxy for FC?
I tried to use https://github.com/CryptoManiac/stratum-mining-proxy but it failed, with the following error:

INFO proxy jobs.extranonce2_padding # Extranonce size mismatch. Please report this error to pool operator!

Remember that Novacoin is not only scrypt, but a PPC protocol coin, so it would have to be modified further to mine a Litecoin scrypt type coin.


If you are trying to set up a private pool, you really do not need stratum.

I wrote up a quick guide to using FC with pushpool here:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=178286.msg1867412#msg1867412 (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=178286.msg1867412#msg1867412)

If you really want to setup stratum, there is a eloipool fork for scrypt coins at:

Yes a big jump I bet, hashrate is constantly over 600Mhs and growing. We really need more pools for mining feathercoins to spread hashrate: SimplePool is still big, that's why the admin closed registrations.

Me and my CPU have been mining feather coins almost all weekend! Excited to see where this goes... this is my first real experience with crypto-coin mining... cool to see the numbers trickle in. I hear FeatherCoin's hashrate is up to about 600 MH/s... Litecoin is hovering around 11000 MH/s... getting closer to 6% of the Litecoin hash rate. Also, assuming 1 KH/s in litecoin = 1 Mh/s in bitcoin; the litecoin network is up to about 1/12 the hashrate of the bitcoin network... so in total, feathercoin has snapped up around .5% of the total hashing power between litecoins and bitcoins. Is that a correct interpretation?

Anyways.... this is fun!

Guys, got a problem mining FC, im using 2x6970's and normally I can pull 900kh/s with high intensity. With FC mining I cant seem to get good results unless the intensity is around 11-13 which kills my hashrate.
Is this normal ?
I tried a bunch of pools and all had the same issue with a low hashrate being reported on my stats.
I checked the cgminer readme and it says its due to the intensity being too high and the WU: rate proves it - it should be .9 of the hashrate if its running properly.

Been pumping away at pools and got zero coins to show for it...  :'(

No nothing's wrong. Although you should get all your completed transactions about 2 hours after you stop mining. Then you'll have the real amount of coins showing up.

I think Feathercoin should start looking at a legit icon for the coin. The one it has now is nice, but it's stolen.

Unless some jeweler who designed it in 2011 is behind it. oO

Before it really gets to be known for it... that is.

Lol to be fair, that's not the point. I mean, you're talking a cosmetic problem to the design.  My shiney gold $1 AUD coins are rather haphazard when it comes to smooth edges too. ;)

But the FTC-FC is an issue, it's FC. Easily remedied I'm sure.

I'd prefer the second one if asked, over the current design. Which if you look at the original, is a rather blurred down version of jewellers design, which would have hidden such imperfection as jagged circles.

Still, it is the first offer I'm sure, hopefully we can all have input to opt for a unique design.

I am getting the following error message when I try to pool mine.

I am offering a 2,500FC bounty for the best Feathercoin design. I know we have some very competent people here and there is a lot enthusiasm right now so I am you 24 hours to come up with a design. I will then choose the best one objectively before subjectively. After which the graphic will be compiled into the clients.

It must be at least 256x256, be a PNG image, have a transparent background and use antialiasing, so no jagged edges.

Vector graphics will of course be accepted :)

second one with this "F" logo is quite unique and old school looking in a very positive way, i like it. In terms of the coin shape i like the last one with thicker frame, offset, something like btc coin shape.

So ideal connection for me is "F" logo with last coin shape.

I thinkthis really a good idea. Coin design its not hard to make and i think enyone could do this on your own, its not really hard. IMO more variety of designs is better to choose from. People should post their ideas and community can choose the best one.

I think, that second one was better, but in my opinion "F" letter should be looking more "light" like feather or it should be F with smaller feather somewhere.

Keep them coming. I think I will have to shortlist some for the vote. Something to bear in mind is that a good logo for this coin would be one that scales down, and I'm talking down to 16x16 for the system tray icon. It might be worth testing them at that resolution to see how well they fair.

I mainly want this so I can say 'I designed that' when I see this coin up all over the place in the future. I have faith :)

For me good candidate for official coin. Modern, simple design, great
But i dont like the shape, cos its look like a cap from the bottle or something like that.
Overall is very nice. And the best "F" logo of all today.

Like this plus it should look ok as icon too

I have added checkpoint to the code and republished the binaries. I suggest that everyone upgrade their clients and that pool operators grab the source from GitHub and compile new binaries. The checkpoints help protect the chain against 51% attacks.

Edit: You can get the binaries from the first post linked here - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=178286.0

I really like your concept, few changes like more symmetric "F" maybe more vivid, catchy colours and would be great.

If a letter was to be used instead of a feather, I personally like this "F" the best :p but I still want the feather since it makes the logo unique. There should be a poll for feather or letter as the logo.

Not really sure what to think of this newborn, expect that I don't see it hurting anyone!
It seems kinda useless or extremely oversighted in my mind at the moment.
But this is the mantra we have been hearing over every new cryptocoin.
I for one am prone to dreaming that LTC would become the 10pence of BTC's one pound.
And as for now i see no need for a 5 pence coin I don't percieve it being impossible that it might come mighty handy some day, but only time will show.
Also as much as I love scrypt, I would have liked to see a change in algorithm just for the ease of paranoia over many coins falling over one vulnerability.

But overall really interesting to see what'll it be growing into... or what could be it's doom. And it felt kinda great to be solo mining with less than 1MH/s(scrypt) / 1GH/s(sha256). Got lucky too! 720KH/s has given me 3 blocks over the last 24 hours before this post (diff atm: 23.88328949) and the expected time at my rate for one block ~40h. ;D
Well guess it's back to LTC on full steam... or is it... maybe i'll have to wait for 24 blockless hours on feathercoin first. Lady luck might get offended. :D

A PLEASURE!

Litecoin is currently 2 pence to the pound but I'm sure it will make it to 10 pence. Litecoin proves that there is room for more than one coin as long as it is positioned correctly.

Wow these coin designs are looking awesome!

I think a combination of the below 2 designs would be best. It would also be cool to have the Vires In Numeris written on the coin somewhere, and perhaps a map of the world integrated as well :)

I think the modern F and circuit boards of this one:

Combined with the basic coin design of this one (it looks very sturdy and physical - like you can just grab it I like that):

Ignore colour and flare and all the pretty bits that come later when refining the image - these are just design concepts for consideration as a basis for the final design:

Must say that out of all the design concept this satisfies my sense of style the most, maybe 'cause i don't like metallic colors that much in general.
Hope this refines to something else than the spectrum of silver/iron/gold.

Also not so fond of overuse of rounded corners on many of the other designs F-letters.
Even tho' these are also pretty curly... but it's a linear curl, not rounded off!
Maybe this is 'cause it reminds me how THEY round off my fiat money.
The EUR-spinoffs were also amusing for being so close to home, euro being my coin of choice when it comes to shopping necessities like toilet paper, cat food, coffee and cigs.
BTW/FYI even though we use euros in Finland we don't have the 1snt & 2snt coins in use at all, that gets me rounded up.
DISCLAMER: IMHO ::)

If you receive an email from me out of the blue, please don't blow it off as spam! I'm putting together community responses to all the FUD that's being spread about Feathercoin.  Here's the overall strategy:

1.   Collect answers from members of the Feathercoin community
2.   Put it together in a FAQ format (I’d like to have the rough draft done by the weekend)
3.   Post it the alt currencies
4.   Expect our critics to tear it apart
5.   Revise based on any feedback
6.   Post to a webpage
7.   Anytime we see FUD, we can just reference them to the webpage for the truth


If you received a survey, any info would be appreciated. If you haven't received an email and want to help strength Feathercoin, feel free to drop me a pm.

Been working on a pseudo 3D looking version :) (I know, there are those who don't like the shiny coin look - that can be changed easy peasy if required)

I know I've already submitted about 20 designs, but it was a progressive thing and in fairness I actually started before the bounty.

I will submit my final 5 designs tomorrow morning as I've done a couple more this evening but I'm out at the moment.

I reckon I have until around 11am GMT to get my final submissions in. Thanks for all the feedback so far and for the couple of donations I've received for my efforts. It's greatly appreciated and really says a lot about this community.

Tomorrow I dedicate 2 more 2,000khash machines to mining this coin, which I believe will be the #3 behind BTC and LTC.

You can mine with a CPU, but you won't have awesome results. You'll get 4-50 kh/s depending on your processor. Let's just say you can get 12 kh/s, then you would get a couple of coins a day. Probably not really worth it. And within 1-2 weeks you wouldn't even be getting 1FC/day at 12kh/s.

If you really want to mine, even for this you would need to pick up a video card... no need to spend $1000 if you have a motherboard with a free PCI-E slot and decent power supply. Then you get pick up a Radeon 7950 for $300 or less. I'm mining with 2 7950's right now and at current difficulty should be able to get at least 200 coins/day.

I think it would look cool if you were to get rid of the actual "F" and the bottom fin on the left side, and mirror the top two fins I circled where the "F" was. That way it's like two "F's" facing opposite directions but at the same time making for a nice logo.

1050 dropped off at least 20kh/s/card, 1075 seems to do the trick tho. May have dropped off a few, but nothing terrible. I think I actually started w/1075 then changed it for some reason that I can't recall atm.

http://s10.postimg.org/f53a3sxsp/silver_feather.png http://s23.postimg.org/6dp827ed7/bronzeyr.png

I can not do graphics, but I can picture in my head this coin... see on the bottom of the feather there are a few fins that make out an F (forget about the top part of the feather)...
further to this... the top fin and bottom stem of the feather look like arms of a Clock........... the roundness of the coin further signifies a clock... why not make the F out of the feathers and the feathers can be the arms of a clock... the clock indicating speed - speed of feather coin..

Also you can make the numbers for the clock around the edges in binary, separated by a ".".  so like 1.110.11011.11011100. and so on and so on...

anyone want to try to take this image out of my brain and actually try to make something of it? maybe I am thinking too much?

Technically, structurally, all other things totally aside, this is my choice in a round design.

1. Compact, quickly recognizable, F engulfing C = (ownership, compartment, purse, wallet, secure, held, vault, hidden, strong)
2. Works, (structurally mind you), as a desktop icon, program icon, browser tab icon, taskbar icon ... because the structure lends itself to reduction in size and resolution. Functionality and flexibility.
3. Letter "C" inside the "F", again, has compact logo-like characteristics, scans for instant recognition. The "C inside the F" is two letters, and it is not, it is a "thing", a brand, an icon, an image unto itself.
4. It has a machine quality, component quality, things "fit" together, it has balance and strength and complexity, while having a quality where everything known about feathercoin can be instantly resolved and easily attached to the symbol. It's got an "elemental" quality, like AU, or AG.

Technically, structurally, all other things totally aside, this is my choice in a round design.

1. Compact, quickly recognizable, F engulfing C = (ownership, compartment, purse, wallet, secure, held, vault, hidden, strong)

I totally agree on point 1-2-3 ! Reduction in scale and resolution is very important, some of the incredibly nice logo posted here don't scale very well..
I can barely understand half of point 4, probably because I'm not native english speaker :-)

Reduced to 200x200 pixels from the working size at 800x800 pixels, it's complex, and again, just a concept design, it could certainly be simplified and recreated in vector based image software to prep it for reduction for a logo's many demanding uses, I just had that whole "Dream Catcher" kind of thing hit me when looking for feathers, so I decided to make sum art stuff. Litecoin, wow, really popping hard tonight, huge gains today, feathercoin, sneaking up fast.

This is the one I prefer, until now. I do like the feather symbol. The "F" is not so cool on a coin.

My favorite of any I've seen is your bottom left.  Love the design and the color.  Bitcoin uses gold.  Litecoin uses silver.  This represents the copper/bronze ideals of FC.

I like both on the left.

I would strongly reccomend NOT going with a silver or gold color.  You will be hard to distinguish from the established BTC and LTC logos.  The color makes a difference and even a small logo will be recognizable as Feathercoins.

Hi again all. I'm not giving up the fight just yet. Based on a lot of positive feedback on my bronze/copper coin design, I've worked around that and finalised (or finalized if you're West of here) my designs. I now have a total of 11 final entries that I am happy with. I have included the silver ones as Bush seemed to like them, but I actually totally agree with those that say Feathercoin should be a copper colour.

Another note : The copper icons with LESS detail look way better at 16x16.

My favourites are No. 9 and No. 2

No. 9 because it has the feather and some circuitry in the background.
No. 2 because it's kinda retro-futuristic (plus reminds me of WingCommander)

Feathercoin.com needs a rework, currently it doesn't look professional, both text and design.
At least the down arrow should be aligned left, not center.
Look at litecoin.org, terracoin.org or novacoin.org design for comparison.
Maybe you need to create another design contest for feathercoin's main website ?

Cant you combine the semiconductor watermark mith this metallic tecture?

Attentions. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE COIN LOOKS of HIGH CraftManship: Slightly Reflective Mettallic Collor is better: like platinum or shined silver, not like Dull Silver (or of course bronge).

Dont possition the coins value low, let the market decide.

In one month, it's possible that the difficulty may become bigger than 100.

It goes to the miners.  When a block is found it gets added to the reward for finding that block.  So instead of a 200 FC reward, the miners will get a 200.1.

But there are probably more poeple paying that 0.1, so can miners get like 300 FC? And why is this fee necessary?

Basically to stop transaction spam.

If there was no fee, what would stop somebody from trying to clog up the network with thousands of tiny transactions?

The fee comes in after the number/size of transactions hits a certain level in a block.

Hi, I mined feathercoin for a few hours soon after it was released and I think I found 7 blocks. At that time, my wallet showed 7 transactions, but only 400 FC as my balance, I looked at the transaction log and only saw two transactions (200 each from mining). I waited a while and oped my wallet more recently and let it update everything but it still didn't do anything. Does anyone know if this is normal for solo mining or am I doing something wrong?

When BTC is Gold, Litecoin is Silver, Feathercoin should be "bronze to gold".

+1

Man i love feathercoin, so much more fun to solomine vs ltc for the moment.
Gotten 3000FC in 1,5 days.

Good god haha I'm just aiming for 1000 of the buggers, I gotta stop giving them away lol

and just when I think I'll let it run and get that, I look to see the difficulty gone up.

All the clients and source code have been updated to include the new image. There is also a fix for the problem where some clients are unable to find a connect or it takes several hours. Please update your client from the first page.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=178286.0

Can someone explain me more about 0.1 FC transfer fee? When and why do I have to pay it? Where does it go? It can't just vanish, can it?

It goes to the miners.  When a block is found it gets added to the reward for finding that block.  So instead of a 200 FC reward, the miners will get a 200.1.
But there are probably more poeple paying that 0.1, so can miners get like 300 FC? And why is this fee necessary?

One day all the blocks will be found, at that point the incentive for miners, to keep doing what they do, is the transactions fees.

Nice!!

Looks like Feathercoin has been picked up by one of the smaller established exchanges and skipped the propriety exchange step in the life cycle of a cryptocoin.

Good job!!

I am not sure, remember for most of the day the server was offline. When it was brought back up there was some database corruption.

Maybe linked to that.

Is there a patch somewhere for stratum-mining?  I can't find anything.  The guy who runs coinotron sent me some patches he wrote and I was able to get a miner mining but the hashrate was really low and all the shares were being rejected.

I think its better to use the three code abbrevation because ISO 4217 standard uses it for all the official currencies in the world. Forex uses it also for precious metals.

Okay. I've just grabbed from GitHub and everything compiles fine on Debain.

If you let me know your exact distro I will try to recreate the problem?

Yes, that's not normal, you should be getting almost exactly the same hashes as LTC. Restart your miner and try a different pool (preferably one with stratum support).

I'll second on that. I had my cgminer 2.4.11 configurations optimized for 7850 on LTC. I got no reduction on hash-rates or any change on hw-errors. This was true even when comparing between longpoll and stratum. Also the same rates with connecting to feathercoind on localhost. And I changed absolutely nothing else in my configuration than the pool addresses and the standard solo mining lines to
~/.feathercoin/feathercoin.conf  
Code:
server=1
daemon=1
rpcuser=user
rpcpassword=pass
rpcport=8100
port=8101
rcpallowip=127.0.0.1

WRONG.
 I initiated withdraw of coins from Cryptonit last night before I went to bed. 12 hours later, both my LTC and FC withdrawals are STILL "Transaction Awaiting Authorization"

Cryptonit is problematic, and people are going to get screwed because there's problems.
Cryptonit directly uses the bitcoin "move" RPC function to manage his user accounts.

What does this mean for you?

mugen isn't keeping any accounting records of what his customers are doing. So if one of his exchanges has a bug, like his Freicoin exchange did, he cannot determine what amounts all of his accounts should have. Mugen's exchange had this same massive bug where he lost customer funds when the site was in beta. He was advised to implement his exchange using external accounting & logs.

Had mugen built his exchange so that it kept accounting records and logs he wouldn't have had any problems trading Freicoin and other coins. Unfortunately, even if someone wanted to make all of his depositors whole they couldn't do it because he doesn't keep the records necessary to pay people back.

I strongly recommend you stay very far away from cryptonit for ANY coin.

Well... If you wait for that, you can wait till infinity and beyond...

"Transaction Awaiting Authorization" says that you have to authorize your transaction.

Click on "My Account" -> "View Account Balances, Deposit and Withdraw" and click "Waiting Authorization" (just under TRC).

There you can use the 2-step verification you created (did you?) and enter the code to authorize the withdrawal.

I use "Google Authenticator" on my Android phone. Safe and smooth.

That's strange, if you go to your account you can see a full history of all your trades on the site.

CryptoCoin -> Exchange -> Order Details -> Select currency pair -> History

Click on "My Account" -> "View Account Balances, Deposit and Withdraw" and click "Waiting Authorization" (just under TRC).

There you can use the 2-step verification you created (did you?) and enter the code to authorize the withdrawal.

I use "Google Authenticator" on my Android phone. Safe and smooth.

I have just withdrawn some FTC to my wallet and the moment I filled in my google authenticator code and pressed on Confirm transaction I received the FTC in my wallet instantly. Shame to see that people are spreading false lies about this exchange, as it works perfectly, you just got to read what they instruct you to do.

Cheers

I placed a withdrawl, over half an hour ago for +4.83256568 LTC and it still says unconfirmed, and hasn't appeared in my wallet even marked as unconfirmed.

So not everyone is have the same experience as you.

Yes of course.

When I look at the cryptocoin details for the withdrawal, it has replaced the destination address I had put in, with the LTC deposit address on cryptionit so it's probably stuck in some loop. So I have lodged yet another support ticket to mugen.

No because it was two withdrawals 15min apart, and it has aggregated them itself into one. I have never deposited LTC on cryptonit, only FTC, and has the destination wallet open and painstakingly check the digits to make sure I haven't accidentally cut one off either end of the string. Also the transaction should have gone though if the destination address is valid, regardless of if it's the cryptonit deposit address,  and it still hasn't.

You could upgrade to Snow Leopard. Failing that, try and compile from source. You will need to install Macports first and the dependencies, probably waste an hour or two mucking around.

Really sorry Matt but the Mac release is 10.6 or newer. You can still compile the Feathercoin-Qt application yourself.

By the way, Apple only support their current one one prior operating system. You need to be on 10.7 or newer for security updates.

I just flipped about 22K FTC to LTC and withdrew the LTC without a problem.

I know Cryptonit can be kind of flaky at times, but it seems most of the issue are people new to the exchange not familiar with how to two-step withdrawal works.

1st step is to start the withdrawal, which I am sure most you you have already done.

2ND STEP - Authorize the transaction. On your account cryptocoin information screen (where you did step one) there is a category at the bottom of the list called "Waiting authorization". You need to follow that link, and have your google auth (however you set it up) attached to your account.You only need to set it up once.

If you have your google auth set-up you should see your withdrawal along with the box to enter the six digit code your device or computer app. gives you. Enter the numbers, click the button and your withdrawal will be processed.

I know the google auth can be a pain in the butt to set up the first time...Believe me I know   :D

But once it is set up, it is very easy to do withdrawals and very secure.

I did a write up once about setting up a goggle auth for Cryptonit, I will try and dig it up and post a link.

Cryptonit is keeping me away from FTC.  Others above me are having similar issues with GA login not working.  Hopefully support gets back to me on how to fix this issue.  I followed all the on site instructions and have had no success. 


Title: Re: FeatherCoin - New Litecoin based coin
Post by: dreamwatcher on April 29, 2013, 03:13:22 AM
I found it on the Terracoin fourm, here is a cut and paste of it


Quote
I use Jauth:

Jauth is available here:

git://github.com/mclamp/JAuth.git

Within the repository there are both Linux and Windows auto installers.

JAuth_unix_1_0.sh
  
JAuth_windows_1_0.exe

Navigate to the directory where  the repository was extracted too:

Linux users make sure sure JAuth_unix_1_0.sh is executable (chmod +x JAuth_unix_1_0.sh). Run the installer with:   sudo ./JAuth_unix_1_0.sh

Windows users just run the windows executable.

At one point in the install it will ask for the "Authentication secret string" this is the code that the exchange provides.

Go to the GA login section of your exchange account, you will see an option to generate a code. Keep the drop down box set to TOTP and generate a code.

The next screen will have a url like: otpauth://totp/blahblah%40CryptoCoin%20Exchange?secret=1234567890

The "Authentication secret string" are the characters after "secret=".

Please print or write down the code!!

Cut/paste the string into the install program. (Windows - use ctrl-v to paste).

The code needs to be set by checking the box next to "I have successfully scanned the current code" and clicking the code scanned button.

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A COPY OF THE CODE ("Authentication secret string") BEFORE CLICKING THE BUTTON.

The code will never be revealed again which, is not a big deal if you have it written/printed out. You can always reuse the code if the Jauth install fails or you need to reinstall it for whatever reason. You can use the code on multiple computers. The code is basically a "seed" for generating the authentication codes, and can be used with any GA device/program.

Finish the install, and run Jauth whenever you need a code to withdraw. A little window that looks like a clock will appear and give a sequence of 6 numbers.
There is a copy shortcut so one can copy paste the code. For some reason the link does not work on Linux, but then again it is only 6 numbers.

I'm just wondering if anybody else is having issues with p2pool.org and FeatherCoin. I'd been mining for about 50 minutes (~500 KH/s according to cgminer) and I had 20 shares accepted, 1 rejected, and a whole bunch of "Stratum from pool 0 detected new block" and "Stratum from pool 0 requested work restart". According to p2pool.org, I was mining at 0.362 KH/s. I'm not seeing much of a point to mining in a pool with FeatherCoin if I'm effectively running over 1000x faster on my own.

I've copied the cgminer script I use for LTC and only changed the host, username, and password, so there aren't any config issues. Anyone know what's up?

https://cryptonit.net/exchange/ltc/ftc

Everything works fine until now! :)

WRONG.
 I initiated withdraw of coins from Cryptonit last night before I went to bed. 12 hours later, both my LTC and FC withdrawals are STILL "Transaction Awaiting Authorization"


Well... If you wait for that, you can wait till infinity and beyond...

"Transaction Awaiting Authorization" says that you have to authorize your transaction.

Click on "My Account" -> "View Account Balances, Deposit and Withdraw" and click "Waiting Authorization" (just under TRC).

There you can use the 2-step verification you created (did you?) and enter the code to authorize the withdrawal.

I use "Google Authenticator" on my Android phone. Safe and smooth.

I've had to re-create a second account on there, just to have that 'useless' now too, as I can't get this 2 setp auth to work. I was pointed to a step by step guide and it still didn't work. I don't have android phone, so I used the windows client linked to (how to get it alone I dont know, I had to download the thing in an arvhice from the git repository?) and then it's all just trial and error, which doesnt' work when you only get one shot per account.

It asys "Tick this and click continue, you can recreate a new code later." and then there is no option to create a new code. What I'm supposed to do with the code, google has no idea I have no idea. Back and forth.

Now google has more info about me than I ever wanted them to know, and I still cant use the 'withdraw' on this exchange.

Who decided this two step authentication was necessary? Why let google control my authentication. I don't use them if I dont have to, yet it seems it's required to withdraw.

and I can't keep making useless accounts. I don't ave that many email addresses.

Sorry for the quote stack. What do you mean? I'm live with this now, what kind of problems do you have with it?

I was under the impression that it wasn't working correctly based on the author's comments on that page. (under "Current issue details")

Are those issues closed?
Well, the pastebin is from 4-09 and I haven't had any issues in my testing/usage.

Well, not working for me..  I just get the following message nonstop in the logs and hashrates from 8-10 kH/sec with settings that normally get me around 700 on my miner (7970)

I get that too, but the stratum conxn works fine. Where do you see the low hash rate?  in your miner or on your pool's site frontend?

You can get rid of twisted's verbose output by running it as a daemon .. use -y  not -ny flag.

but i switched the name from LTC/FTC to FTC/LTC .. i think this way it is right. cryptonit got it wrong
its the same as LTC/BTC ... the name of the coin with less value is in front to geht the exchange price right.

Okay. I've just grabbed from GitHub and everything compiles fine on Debain.

If you let me know your exact distro I will try to recreate the problem?

This has been tested on Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, Win and Mac.

Could you delete your Feathercoin folder and pull fresh from GitHub and try again?

Okay, I cloned https://github.com/FeatherCoin/FeatherCoin.git

Copied makefile.unix to makefile.fedora17

Added -I../../deps/include to the DEFS and -L../../deps/lib to the LIBS += line so it uses my custom openssl that includes the elliptic curves that Fedora leaves out of their distributed openssl. Added BOOST_LIB_SUFFIX = -mt where the comment indicates.

That is all standard stuff I have to do for every *coin.

Then did

make USE_UPNP= -f makefile.fedora17

It does not get far before producing that error.

Are you maybe not compiling it without UPNP?

On *nix I also disable UPNP. Can you try compiling with just the default packages?

Then again I'd doing the same as you on CentOS with OpenSSL. I also compile the latest boost on that distro too. I use export before running make, so export OPENSSL_INCLUDE_PATH=/path/to/ssl and OPENSSL_LIB_PATH=/path/to/ssl, plus the two exports for the Boost libs. I've got a long list of things to work on today but I will find the time to test FTC on Fedora 17 and get back to you.

I noticed that the make blurbs going by had ABSOLUTE PATHS in them, for some reason they embedded /usr/src/bitcoin/feathercoin-git into all the paths for all their -L and -I stuff.

So, I changed the ../../deps that has always worked with all other coins, including feathercoin itself up until this recent pull, with an absolute path coded into the makefile (a very bad idea as it means other people who try to use makefile.fedora17 will find it does not work unless they place their git clone in the exact same place in the total filesystem as I did) and suddenly it worked.

This is BAD, I think your shell script that makes the build.h header file has been hacked and thereby fucked up, so that suddenly it is putting absolute paths; at least that is the first mechanism that comes to mind for how you manage to go find out where on my filesystem I have chosen to place the git clone and embed that information into the make process, which, did I mention IS BAD.

Please fix this broken behaviour, it is (did I mention?) BAD.

It should be possible for people to put their bitcoin, or altcoins, or cryptocoins, or whatever THEY choose to call it directory anywhere, even in their own home-directrory, put their custom openssl into deps (dependencies) where all the many many many (and growing number) of coins can find it, and go ahead and use existing makefile.fedora15, makefile.fedora16, makefile.fedora17 or whatever according to their version of Fedora. Absolute paths for where the git is cloned into is bad idea.
