Title: SCGuild - SolidCoin Fork of BTC Guild
Post by: eleuthria on August 21, 2011, 04:49:57 PM
SolidCoin pooling is up from BTC Guild:  http://sc.btcguild.com (http://sc.btcguild.com)

Currently still has the I0C branding, being removed over the next few minutes.

Pool is now obviously Solidcoin (all i0c references removed).

If we reach the 100 GH/s required for the bounty, I'll be taking 1000 coins out of the 2500 bounty and selecting 10 round IDs at random (future rounds) to allocate a bonus 100 SC block reward among the miners.

If we reach the 100 GH/s

I think you mean when ... you can actually watch the pool hash rate increase in increments hah

FYI:  I strongly recommend CG Miner for mining in general, but even moreso for BTC forks at low difficulties.  CGMiner is the king of fast long poll handling, with the lowest reject rates BY FAR.

I think so as well.

when I0coin had it;s interesting release.. i used guiminer for it and wasnt gettting anyluck.. had one share and saw the post about the guy using cgiminer and thought it was doing better for him. Less than 5 minutes after i switched, i had about 8 shares. Now of course this can be explained by the radical difficulty changes.,

so last night i had a 5770 and a 5830 mining solidcoins. the rates were 210mh and 320mh.. the 5770 using cgminer and the 5830 on guiminer and the 5770 got more coins at the end of the night.. i cant see that happening on a stable coin and they are at two different locations so maybe something happened at night that i just dont see.

Now this is just another data point and in now way was it good testing condition but I am pretty sold.

No, but you can see the list of blocks getting the bonus on the front page.  The bonuses appear once the randomly selected round has been completed.  If it later becomes orphaned I'll add a new round into the list to award the bonus.

Title: Re: SCGuild - SolidCoin Fork of BTC Guild
Post by: eleuthria on August 25, 2011, 03:20:26 PM
You're going to have high stale rates on SC Guild.  We're a massive pool and the SC network difficulty is not high enough for the 3 minute target time yet.  Stales hit when new blocks are found, because long polls are not instant no matter what server you use.

Your stale rates on SC, once the difficulty is roughly equal to actual hash speed, will be 3.3x what you get on BTC because SC is designed to produce 3.3x as many blocks in the same time frame.


The confirmation bug was fixed this morning.  I was trying to reduce server load but not polling so many transactions at once from listtransactions, and ended up setting the value slightly too low, meaning it wasn't seeing updated confirmations on blocks that were more than 60 transactions deep.

I'll try and fix issues like this with the coming versions by implementing improved functions you can use for such things. There is a *LOT* of room for optimization and ease of use for developers.

What is your hashrate? When did you start mining?  SC mining is 2.5 times more profitable than BTC for me.  Should be the same for you.

SC does not have a estimated rewards. they have a 24 Hour Rewards   (rewards that you got in the last full 24).

A second server has been added to SC Guild to assist with the load.  Miners do not have to change any of their settings.  You may see a few more rejects than usual once your client recognizes the new DNS settings, at which point reject rates should be reduced a little.  A third server is being added to the cluster as soon as the ISP provisions the extra server clusters for SC and BTC Guild.

"Since Reset" stats will be added back to SC Guild this weekend, since SolidCoin is showing enough staying power to warrant a few extra features/stats.

By the way, I eventually managed to get the site to send me a password reset e-mail and reset my password... but I had to edit the URL in the e-mail because it sent me to the main BTCGuild site rather than SCGuild.

Edit: Also, glad to hear the reset stats button will be making an appearance. I'm testing pointing my slow FPGA miner (now with long polling!) at SC Guild and it would've come in handy, though I guess I could've created a new worker...

Post by: eleuthria on September 01, 2011, 08:41:31 PM
SC Guild is just going to run its course.  No new features are going to be added/copied from the main BTC Guild frontend.  I'm done dealing with forkcoins until one of them can prove itself as having any practical use outside of screwing up the hash rates of the BTC network.

Since this isn't I0C which actually stopped working, I have no plans of shutting off SC Guild as long as it can produce $25/mo to cover the two pool servers [and I'd just shut off one pool server rather than the whole SC Guild until it fails to produce $15/mo].


Regarding rejected shares:  This morning I updated to the most recent solidcoind for 64-bit linux.  If the stale rates are still high, there's nothing more I can do about it.  It's using a mostly stock pushpool configuration, but it was receiving a lot of duplicate work from solidcoind itself.


Title: Re: SCGuild - SolidCoin Fork of BTC Guild
Post by: navigator on September 01, 2011, 09:00:27 PM
Gotcha, it's not really a problem.

I0C is actually doing well without your big pool in the way lol no offense(BTC Guild is my favorite pool anyway). For the last day or so it has remained more profitable than solidcoin but I don't think many people are noticing. The fluctuating low difficulty and 120 block adjust is nice.

These alt currency's pulling bitcoin difficulty down is exciting. They have basically stretched out bitcoin's profitability. Also, being profitable consistently for 2016 blocks has its advantages. Since solidcoin and others change difficulty so fast they will always have wild fluctuations in hash rate.

It's a problem in solidcoind, not pushpool, the database, or the servers.  I've used two different pre-compiled binaries from the website, and also compiling it straight from the source.  The only thing left I can think of is seeing how easily I can implement JoelKatz's patches into solidcoind.

Due to licensing changes in SolidCoin, the arrogance of the developer, and his complete lack of respect to developers of the project he based his entire project on, SC Guild will be going offline on September 11th (one week from this notice). Any developer of a massive online platform should welcome bug reports and fix them, not cry and complain when someone uses them to prove the point that the developer refused to acknowledge.

The pool will keep functioning until September 7th, to give users time to change their miners. Payouts will stop being available at noon on September 11th (PDT).

Better sell your coins before the difficulty drops so far mining will become so easy your coins "value" will be inflated away.

If I do a mass payout, most people will never see their coins either way.  Most accounts have no wallet at all.  Most of the ones that do use SC Exchange (Bitparking) wallets, which are no longer being supported by doublec.

eleuthria, have you even tried to discuss the issues you have with the solidcoin guy before you decided to shut down your exchange?

i bet quite a few people have lost a fair bit of money. Why don't you let it up to the people if they want to mine SC or not?

Thanks to this drama, Bitcoin itself has probably felt quite an aftershock as well.

solidcoin -> bitcoin -> USD, thus driving the price down.

Since you knew when you were going to shut down the exchange, you would have sold your holdings just before the crash, thank you very much.

Yeah, since CoinHunter's arrogance means massive amounts of diskspace needed to sync the block chain, it's a lot harder to run it on an old spare computer. I don't have any willingness to trust running it on a machine with a Bitcoin wallet given CoinHunter's arrogance and intentional spreading of misinformation about the competitor whos code he depended on to make his own "product." Especially after his dick move of specifically stating in the "new license" that Bitcoin isn't allowed any bug fixes or improvements he makes. Even ixcoins isn't that blatantly pathetic.

eleuthria, I guess you're not denying then that you sold off most of your solid coins before you released your announcement.

Btw. wolftaur, the damage has been done, no point in ranting further about CoinHunter's moral qualities.

In an ideal world, bit parking, btc guild and the solidcoin guy should have had discussions before any stupid moves occur. Lucky for me that I just started mining solid coins today, haha.

In my opinion, crypto currencies can only survive with a certain degree of stability.

Actually, I sold the majority of my coins back when they were actually worth something (~0.02).  But I don't deny that I sold the rest of my coins after posting my announcement.  Not that it mattered, the price tanked when doublec closed bitparking, not as a result of me cashing out.

Discussions wouldn't have helped. When I was first talking to CoinHunter we got along just fine. He even gave me a bunch of solid coins just for the hell of it. After ArtForz spotted a few vulnerabilities I basically went to CoinHunter in private and asked if he'd have wanted me to help him go over them and see if they were exploitable.

He pretty much just flipped out on me. He couldn't handle the idea that someone thought he might have made a mistake in his work.

If doublec and/or Eleuthria stated they tried talking to him and got nowhere, my own personal experience would tell me to believe them and ignore any claim CoinHunter made to the contrary.

In all fairness, I doubt there are many that could. I think any fork that is just under the control of one person is automatically suspect. Almost any real FOSS project needs multiple people who all have equal authority and control. Especially here. If a huge part of the premise is decentralization, how is there validity in centralizing so much with one sole person with no checks and balances internal to the project itself?

I can't speak for doublec, but I haven't made much contact with RealSolid in the past.  My impression was he hated me and BTC Guild ever since I made the original BTC Guild fork for I0Coins.  I gave SC support at first, thinking we may have had a sub-BTC type fork for small transactions with fast confirms.  At first I didn't think much about how the ArtForz issue was handled, but the logs of the chat between RealSolid and gavinanderson put me over the edge.

You don't base something off the work of others, then start going off about how bad their work was, how much better yours is, then refuse to help them when you find an issue.  If you're so damn good, make your own BTC-clone currency from scratch [without looking at the BTC code while you do it].

Agreed 100%. And as a software developer I have to admit I find the license change to be incredibly offensive, especially how he specifically referred to the Bitcoin project as not allowed to take any benefit. I had issues with some of CoinHunter's behavior for a good while but it really took that to get me to be vocal about it. Along with his conversation with gavin.

I think you taking down the pool is completely justified, and I give you credit for doing it now over SolidCoin's clear lack of commitment to open source or fairness, rather than doing it earlier over his opinions and public behavior.
