Title: Difficulty estimation website up for main forks.
Post by: Sp0tter on September 05, 2011, 07:55:49 AM
Hello,  

I have created http://allchains.info which contains  block information taken from all fork chains,  current bid/ask prices taken from exchanges, profit/break-even points of forks compared to mining bitcoin at current difficulties, total speed of each chain, and what the next difficulty will be (and when it will change).

Let me know if you think of something else you would like to see there.  I hope that it is useful.  I will be on top of any new forks that come out and have their information up on day one.

News
2013-04-06 : Fixed the chain size data.

Please provide feedback here or in irc if you have comments on my current work in progress or other ideas.

SolidCoin difficulty is incorrect.

Your website shows 8336 and says that the next update is in 0d 1hr 49m 59s and should be approximately 4547 at that time.

Currently SolidCoin.exe getdifficulty returns 4730.80785762

Up to now I've not noticed any inaccuracies and think that this one page has tons of useful info.  :)

"We are currently aware of an issue with the host that your Linode resides on. This issue requires a reboot to resolve. We do apologize for any inconvenience this issue may cause. Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns."

Apparently they had to reboot last night.  Today I will create the watchdog scripts and save/restore state so this wont affect things in the future.  If there is a problem like that, always check the update time at the top to make sure the information is current.

Looks like it's back up!

Edit: I didn't see the TINY red message at the top.  The site looks like it was built for 640x480 or mobile devices.  I recommend building it for modern equipment, ie. 1024 wide at the minimum, with larger fonts.  That tiny red text gets lost on 1920 wide screens :)

Thank you sir.  They are greatly appreciated.

Please post any ideas you have.  I will be expanding.  So far the ideas on the table are: create a profit trend graph for each fork to see how it stacks up to btc over time... and  create an aggregated small font market that shows buy/sell data for all forks on one page.

The difficulty was lagging behind because of one accidentally deleted line in my script.  I consolidated all 5 chain's difficulty scripts into one to make it easier to manage.  Sorry, its fixed now and should work properly.  If you let me know if something is off in irc I will immediately check into it.

After reading about GeistGeld,  I definitely do not want to run that on my main server.  I can look into running it in a vm at home and auto uploading stats.  I will read about it more first.  Thanks for the heads up.  Typically I only want to track coins that have an exchange available but maybe I can make a second page to give stats on this type of fork.

Hello,  

I have created http://allchains.info which contains  block information taken from the 5 clients (btc, nmc, ixc, i0c, sc), current bid/ask prices taken from exchanges, profit/break-even points of forks compared to mining bitcoin at current difficulties, total speed of each chain, and what the next difficulty will be (and when it will change).

Let me know if you think of something else you would like to see there.  I hope that it is useful.  I will be on top of any new forks that come out and have their information up on day one.


Current Work in Progress - Updated 9-11-2011
1. Provide an RSS feed to push out changes when a fork becomes the most profitable. (Created, determining what information will be most useful to push.)
2. Start logging data for future graphs (fork profit compared to btc over time..)
3. Determine what types of graphs will be useful to each audience.
4. Create a 'mobile' version for each fork that gives the data in a concise list for people who have cheap crappy cell phones (like me) that have no resolution.

Please provide feedback here or in irc if you have comments on my current work in progress or other ideas.

Very helpful site.

Cool cool, glad it gets some use.  Do you have any suggestions for more info you would like to see?   I am thinking about adding total chain speed over the last "n" blocks instead of the current which is the total speed for the cycle.

I'll donate some BTC if you keep ixc until the end of the month when my exchange closes completely. It's useful to see the hashrate to diagnose issues with withdrawals not going through.

Well your title and domain is all chains so you would think all the chains are there by that and I fail to see how a couple of rows extra are going to leave you cramped for space on the page, its your site but I would say leave them there for complete picture of the chains out there at the moment. And why no Fairbrix?
Each running daemon takes quite a bit of memory. The more chains the site supports the more memory it'd need. The bitcoin daemon on one of my sites is 1GB of memory. The namecoin daemon is 400MB. I can't imagine how cramped it must be on allchains.info fitting all those chains.

Each fork takes ~184 to 240 meg of ram on the server.  If nobody is using it, and there are no pools, and no exchanges... I don't really consider it a fork anymore...   I see your point though.  I will look into hosting the clients on other machines and sending in remote updates to get back to "all chains" if others share your opinion.  Right now i think I should optimize resources to what people use most.

Thanks for the input.

You could probably reduce memory usage a bit by using a dynamically linked version of multicoin for those chain it can support. You probably could also reduce memory usage a decent amount by changing bdb flags at the expensive of speed, which for this use would not matter too much.

Sp0tter, thanks for adding Litecoin. One suggestion I have is can you add the difficulty column in the second table? Not sure why it's in the market table. That way coins without an exchange will also show current difficulty.


Title: Re: Difficulty estimation website up for all forks.
Post by: grod on October 13, 2011, 06:44:59 AM
Badass.  Already estimated this from the litecoind getinfo, but nice to see it chart form.  In another 4-5 hours we should see a truer picture of the real litecoin hash rate.  Wouldn't be surprised to see it pass tenebrix at that point.

As long as no exchange shows up for at least a week or two it's looking pretty darn good!  Some pool love soon would be awesome though.

If difficulty (ever) goes down, people jump on it again.
And it's still trading (very low) at BTC-E.com.

There were 12 trades today alone already.

I think you should put it back up it trades at btc-e and it also has blocks found,

http://blockexplorer.sytes.net/chain/Fairbrix (http://blockexplorer.sytes.net/chain/Fairbrix)

I don't care about it, but I do follow all the chains daily on your site.  The difficulty/hashes is low because it is cpu mined.

I think what you mean is the  target block time *times* blocks per cycle?  No chain actually changes based on the physical time only, it always changes on the block count, then adjusts diff hoping next time that will happen after   target block time *times* blocks per cycle?.  Sure, if i can make a space I will add that :)   Thank you for your suggestion.

The reason to drop anything, is to free resources.  For each chain running that's less ram available for running other chains, and reading in giant log files for graphs, etc...    if trades pick up on btc-e, i will add it back.  For now I am going to try keeping it off for a week.  As far as I know, the maintainer Colbee has moved to LTC, so it's really just a loose chain in the wild, similar to i0c which is unsupported.

@Sp0tter,

Why don't you drop SC they way CH dropped you out of IRC night?


 I maintain some SC stats for people who enjoy them, not going to drop them just because i'm banned from #solidcoin.   :)     If  SC is still going in 2 weeks,  I will set up the diff estimates for it.

Target block time (blocks/hr) would be great too!  I was under the impression that some chains had absolute time schedules between retargets (ie. retarget at n blocks OR xx:xx:xx since last retarget).  I stand corrected if that's not the case :)

My understanding of the way it does merged mining make me believe that the Eligius pool is mining NMCs at the same hash rate as it is mining BTCs.
It might be the same for other pools that do merged mining.
If that is correct, the hash rate table should reflect that.

I dropped coins that are dead and nobody, including me, are interested in (IXC, FBX), or coins that have unstable bitcoind's (SC, creating a zombie per minute when polled often).   I look forward to the next chain to surface  :)

If there was a huge interest, I could put ixc/fbx back on... but out of the 300-400 people using allchains daily, I think that ixc was just clutter to them.  I'm not looking to battle with SC's instability, mandatory updates, and crazy reward scheme.. with unpredictable even block times, etc....

You should rename it to MostPopularChains.info then :)  BTW, I believe Doublec is actively working on Ixcoin, with the timetravel fix at block 140K and merged-mining implemented 5K blocks later.

I0coin is what I'm actively working on. Ixcoin I provided patches for the timetravel fix and the merged-mining implementation for the coin maintainer (switching on at 40,000 and 45,000 respectively). So far he's done nothing with them so I guess those won't be the actual switchover block times.

Difficulty for ixcoin has jumped from around 600 to 12,000+ in the last few days. I assume a large pool has started merged mining them. Anyone know which one?

Also, big thanks to Sp0tter for allchains.info. The site has all the info I care about nicely collected on a single page. Bravo!

Please re-list Eligius, it is still a significant chunk of the network's hashing power.

There is no point in penalizing the whole bitcoin and namecoin communities and Eligius' miners by withholding information just because of what Luke-jr did without anybody's permission, and especially without Eligius' miners' permission.

Major Update!

New scripts in place.  I patched all 8 clients to output directly to the scripts so I no longer have to poll getinfo on the clients.   So after 2016 blocks, all chains should be exactly accurate for diff estimates and chain speed.  (No longer errors due to polling timestamps.)

I will be adding solidcoin back to the page.  I had removed it primarily because it locked up with frequent polling, which is no longer necessary  (not because its super-silly and centralized).

Note: gg estimates are still useless because of its tiny target and cycle length.

There is something weird going on with BTC:

A few hours ago it was rather in the +10%, as far as I remember.

Right, there was also a big giant header at the top of the page that said there will be errors during the update.  And now that header says allow 2016 blocks to pass and then accuracy will be Sp0t on.

See how it says it has measured  %0.10 of blocks?  That means its basing that estimate off only   0.1 * 2016 completed blocks which means nothing.  After a full cycle, it will equal to the elapsed blocks / 2016.

Ah, well I didn't see the first one then (it's gone now), that's why.

Yeah that's the part I never understood, only about 40% blocks left but only 0.10% measured. That used to happen all the time, even before the update. Well, anyway, no issue then I guess, I thought maybe there was a bug or something...

This one shows -19.35%.  A few minutes earlier it was +38%...

I do not use last block or a rolling average.  I use the exact calcluation since last diff change.  So if you notice that 0.25% in your LTC row that is saying that the measurement at that moment is only based off 0.25 * 2016 blocks.  The estimate gets more accurate as more blocks are found.  The result is that toward the end it should be more accurate than someone using a rolling block window,

Thanks for the feedback.

Your new software on LTC isn't updating.

Yep, will look into it when I am able.   Before, I had patched the *coind files to output the blocks as they are found to a file which my allchains scripts monitor and update from.  I changed it so that it launches a python script which directly connects to the running allchains scripts.   Anyway.. the point is that eventually there will be a version that auto updates as blocks are found instead of the 2 minute interval... and that I will be able to use the same .patch on all the block chains... and more easily add support new coins.

I want it to be configurable, so a classic allchains for people who don't want more coins, then maybe allchains.info?doge=1?trc=1   or something in the link to choose what coins you want displayed.

Hi Sp0tter,
   I am new to cryptocurrency and because they are fascinating, I was trying to understand how they work: How is the total network hashrate calculated? Or this info is stored on the network somewhere (i think not in blockchains but between peers?) . What I initially thought it should be is to 'reverse' it from the difficulty value but some instances shown me that it might not be true?

  Perhaps you can enlightment me?

alexrossi, look at the Measured column.  You will see that because of the work I am doing right now on the server that only a block or two have been measured (a fast block apparently).  It will average out in a few blocks but will not be truely stable for a day or so as I continue to refine how it works.  The goal is to make is easier to add new coins.

Ready to add some more scrypt coins.  Any suggestions of the most popular?  Is there even value in listing coins that do a diff adjust every block, or is the block number/current diff something you would just view elsewhere anyway?

Taking suggestions, under active development now.  Thanks :)



edit:
I was thinking of a matrix of coins on the left and exchanges across the top and fill in all the prices and compare profit percentage to litecoin.

Also thinking that maybe only the total hashrate of the coin is interesting and the hash rate of pools should just go away completly.

The DOGE difficulty and estimated % change are off.
Diff is stuck at 890.21 on the page, and the estimated change incorrectly shows about -75%.
It might have to do with the recent hard fork that DOGE had.

Missing my favorite site.....when it will come back?

Hey, sorry, I have a lot going on right now.  Changing jobs, residence, VPS hosts, etc..  I will post here when everything is back online.  I do not plan to leave it to die or anything :)
