The new Forum is currently being designed and setup ...

GraniteCoin will be undergoing a new name change ... GraniteCoin will be simply Granite ...

This name change comes at a time where we are moving forward with the plans that have been requiring change for some time now ...

... it is to reflect the simplicity of the way things are done ...
... it is to reflect the solid foundation we have been working hard to establish ...
... it is to reflect the stablility and continuity that the coin and its infrastructure represents ...

--- simple - solid - stable ---

FAQ

What is X11 Algorithm?

X11 is the name of the chained proof-of-work (PoW) algorithm that was introduced in Darkcoin. It was probably inspired by the chained-hashing approach of Quark, adding further “depth” and complexity by increasing the number of hashes, yet it differs from Quark in that the rounds of hashes are determined a priori instead of having some hashes being randomly picked.

The X11 algorithm uses multiple rounds of 11 different hashes (blake, bmw, groestl, jh, keccak, skein, luffa, cubehash, shavite, simd, echo) thus making it one of the safest and more sophisticated cryptographic hashes in use by modern cryptocurrencies. (Courtesy : wiki.darkcoin.eu )


What is DigiShield?

DigiShield re-targets a coin’s difficulty to protect against multi-pools and an over-inflation of easily mined new coins. DigiShield was originally developed for DigiByte, but has since been implemented into more coins. DigiShield re-targets a coin’s difficulty between every block or in the case of Granite, every 120 seconds. ( Courtesy : DigiByte )

GRN has been around for a while. Looks like they are trying to revive community interest.

Post by: chrysophylax on July 31, 2014, 04:24:35 PM
exactly ...

yes and yes ...

This is a takeover of the coin - NOT a restart ... a revival if you will ...

So for those that recognize GRN - it is still the same coin but 'under new management' ...

While it is still the same coin that many have grown to appreciate - it is the backend and wallet that we want to re-stabalize and the trading of GRN as a 'currency' as the aim so far ...

The re-development and continuous growth of GRN will come in time ...

It is a simple coin - POW only - and is a perfect candidate for hardcore miners ...

More to come soon :)

This market is in danger of de-listing due to low trade volume and lack of user interest. It may be removed on Aug 1st unless the average trade volume for the last 7 days exceeds 0.1 BTC

https://bittrex.com/Market/?MarketName=BTC-GRN

Thats correct - hence the changeover of the coin AND the remarketing of it ...

There are quite a few changes that are happening on the backend - and we are trying stop the delisting from happening ...

We obviously need the community behind us - but will try and get as much done as we can ... this all takes time though - which means that we can only do so much with the little amount of time we have for now ...

If we all start trading the GRN coins we have - this will alleviate ANY issue in the future ...

This is obvious - but time will tell what we can do ...

We need the community behind us - as well as ideas other than what we have planned ...

Progress will happen - but it is a slow progress ...

One of the simplest of coins - for the Hardcore Miner ...

Post by: chrysophylax on August 02, 2014, 06:42:45 AM
5 hours and no block found!
on dedicated pool

Yeah - thats due to the small amount of hash rate we have ...

I have split my miners between dedicatedpool and coinking ...

The mining I do on dedicated are coins I want to wallet and keep and trade later - whereas the mining I do on coinking is the mining I want converted to btc ...

Its costing a bit to get the coin back on track - and develop - and I just need all the money I can get ;) hehehe ...

I am so glad that you are supporting GRN with mining - the hardcore miners are what keep ALL of this alive ...

its going to take a little more work - but the blocks will come when the difficulty adjusts and we get the miners all back in ...

When mining on coinking - GRN gets converted (if you set it to convert of course) through bittrex - which in turn increases trade volume - which is one of the reasons I have moved most of the farm there ...

Once bittrex is stabalized - then we can concentrate on mining anywhere - and the more miners we get to come in ... thus the more blocks found :)

Ill move the farm to mine on dedicated this afternoon (Adelaide Australia time - GMT+0930) so that we can at least get that pools numbers up also (probably in the next hour) ...

I hope this makes sense ...

I can even show you how to get it setup for just the way I set it up if you like ... maybe a small tutorial in the next week if anyone is interested ...

I suppose we could - and have traded for ourselves as well - conversion into btc and back again - making that little bit more GRN ;) ...

But the real reason we dont go all out and trade hard (and this is also endorsed by bittrex bill) is that we want the market to grow as organically as possible AND have miners as well as investors wanting to trade GRN and make it a viable option for trade ...

The support of mining farms and traders are what we look forward to ... people like you :)

After all - this coin was designed with a long PoW ... a coin made for Hardcore Miners and Traders alike ...

and we appreciate ALL the help we can get :)

Not a launch at all ... In fact - the launch itself was incredible - was about two months ago ...

No - this is a new thread about the same coin GRN - but with a different management/ownership ...

the last owner did a great job - but couldnt continue investing so much time for the development and upkeep ...

So (with a great deal of his help) organized the transfer of ownership of the coin and took over it ...

Im now organizing a team to restart the development and remarket GRN to get it back on the market ... Its a good solid mining coin ...

of course - any help with this venture will be very much appreciated ...

So this is a new thread about the continuation of GRN - especially now that I have the time (and some money) to invest into it ...

Come and join in mining and trading GRN - we welcome ALL ...

And now there is no exchange.

Well - After SOOO much 'pleading' with bittrex-bill to allow me some form of extension regarding GRN and my taking over the coin only a few days ago ... the response was simple on his part ... the previous owner got some extensions - now you are the new owner - you get no more extensions REGARDLESS of whether you are only new to the ownership of the coin OR the development ...

hmmm ... sounds to me that there is no more leway than what would benefit bittrex and NOT the traders ... maybe Im completely wrong ...

In anycase ... we are STILL going forward with the development of the coin - STILL going ahead with the plans and arrangements - STILL going ahead with the ideas to implement with the wallet - block explorer - website ...

After all - this IS a miners coin that is used well for trading as well ... now we just need another platform for trading ...

Stay tuned - Although I am disappointed that bittrex-bill still delisted it after I have only had GRN a few days under my wing - we will try and get GRN listed elsewhere so that we can continue trading it ...

Mining however is still a viable option - until we can get back onto another exchange ...

we are not losing hope ...

Hi all,

After an entire days work getting the servers up and running - and setting the systems to acknowledge the servers - the seednodes are now up and active ...

This time we have setup 3 Servers so that ANY or ALL the seednodes may be used in the config file ...

The main page is now updated with the seednode details and soon we will put up the steps detailing the process of getting your wallet sync active and running - if you dont already know how to get it done ...

That too will be on the main page under the seednode info ...

Happy syncing AND mining ... Soon - we hope to have GRN back on an exchange so we can start trading it once again ...

Hi mate,

Syncing was the main issue BUT getting the servers active and updated was the main problem ...

Thankfully - building/working/servicing/roll-out of server systems and networks was something that Ive been doing my whole life (Im a network Infrastructure Consultant - big fancy name for Big Tech Head) and all I had to do was apply my expertise in the coin arena ...

That was difficult for me but we pulled through ... :)

I saw your message and will pm you a little later ... Will have a good look then also ...

Tanx,

All good on sync and initial mine "network diff to 25", no new blocks.  Wasting time?

No - never wasting time ...

Due to the fact that this is NOT a new coin - and we have been mining heavily - the difficulty will change according to the network mining/hashrate ...

So as far as the mining is concerned - the more that are mining - the higher the difficulty ... which means that the pool you are mining from has to have a good hashrate to find any blocks to process ...

If the total network hashrate is small at the moment so its a relatively easier to mine ... I have seen it at above 1GH (when it was first launched) and that was really difficult to mine when the 'big hashers' came out to play ...

I mine in a couple of places also ... where are you mining at the moment?

Hi rockyram,

it probably would be better to transfer your GRN back to your wallet as we are no longer on bittrex ...

bittrex bill said that he would look at our coin a little later on - and we are working very hard to get the wallet and website - as well as HUGE interest - back into the mining and trading of the coin AND get the interest back into bittrex also ... they are a good exchange and have been good to us ...

in the meantime - a new trading platform has added GRN to the list of coins in the exchange ...

this is a new exchange and so we are going to start trading there within the next day or so ... I will update the main page with the exchange details in the next 24hours ...

the exchange is BreakNeck Trade and GRN is here http://www.breakneck.trade/index.php?x=GRN ...

we hope this will be a long term commitment and valuable trading experience for everyone that ALREADY own some GRN and those that WANT to own some GRN ...

so come and trade along with us ... and help this platform get up off the ground ...

ive been assured by the owner that BreakNeck Trade is aimed at being here for the very long term ...

we all hope this will benefit all involved ...

as with any coin - we need to work closely with ANY exchange that takes on GRN to make is a viable asset to the exchange AND to anyone that own some GRN ...

good luck ...

ive just moved my miners off - but i can move them back on dedicated pool if you like so we have a better chance at getting it?

i dont have a dev controlling this coin anymore - so there should not be ANY intervention by anything but the miners ... which actually didnt happen the first time by the looks of things anyway ...

there just seemed to be so much hype about it all ...

i recognize your name :) ... would you rather i put most of my miners back on dedicatedpool and see if we can hit the block?

no ... not at all ...

ive taken over the coin and have not assigned a dev to redevelop the coin yet ...

that will happen soon enough - but for now - its for mining and getting the backend setup - which ive almost completed ...

ive just put the miners back on dedicatedpool - so the blocks should be coming in ... hope we hit block 20000 ...

we can see what is happening through the block explorer anyway ...

here - http://grn.blockexplorer.cc/ ... the other one seems to be down at the moment ...

anyway - happy mining guys ... in the last 5 mins - 6 blocks found and counting ...

from what i can gather - there are coinking miners and dedicatedpool miners with some miners from elsewhere - i cant seem to locate ... so its picking up :)

ill help all i can ...

mine mine mine - and good luck to you all ... :)

hi hai3131,

i see your miners all on here ...

we missed the block ... it was hit on another pool ...

here is the block explorer result - http://grn.blockexplorer.cc/block/0000000010af8cf83fa1c578007ae0820f58b85c9c433c6b76dcc8fdb1b7e081 ...

the wallet - GLZVn5xUYSNtZYBpfawC1SVntbuBSLA7Jv - is the address of the coinking.io pool ... checking the blocks there shows that the user 'mitci' has hit that block ...

here is the address for the coinking block hit - https://coinking.io/coin.php?coin=granitecoin ...

congrats mitci ... hai3131 and i were mining hard to get that block ...

next block - here we come ....

Just up, morning, i can't believe we miss that block.
Keep 25k grn for bounty if you want this coin up again. I just want mine #20k block 4 fun not 4 grn coin.
Now i must move my hash, i need to pay my electric bill in next three day :D
If you have some nice step with grn, i will back soon. Good luck.

all good ... its interesting that we are now on track with NO intervention but the miners ... which makes it a good thing ... :)

maybe we can mine together sometime - create a force of mining with a few others maybe :)

i do the same thing though ... i mine here a couple of days a week and the rest is to pay bills via coinking for auto convert ...

im glad you take things easy - mining for fun ...

thats what all this is about - and when you can make a little bit of cash in the process - thats even better ... ;)

enjoy ...

hi cryptocoinrank.com ...

tanx so much for the update of the details - much appreciated ...

the twitter account is @chrysophylax69 ... ill be using that more often from now ...

along with a new facebook page - we should be up and running ...

as for the logo - NICE :)

great concept and what i was looking for - without even speaking with you ... hehehe ...

im just wondering whether the two may be mixed - with a shadow of a big X in the background ... or would that be too much?

mixed - as in the outer brushed metal with the second inner graphics ...

anyway - maybe a poll to decide?

if you provide your wallet address - 1000GRN will be deposited just for your effort for each of the images ... thats 2000GRN so far ... :)

i really appreciate it ...

they are both very nice ...

now that you have worked on the latter - the metal borders and the metal 'G' are perfect ...

the contrast would be great (in my opinion) with the very first one that you created (granite color and texture) ...

using those with the granite/center/gear of the first i believe would be outstanding ... the logo could scale down or up in resolution and would be perfect for the new wallet and granitecoin itself ...

what do you think?

granitecoin is now LIVE on bleutrade ...

for all those that have grn - come trade ...
for all those that want grn - come trade ...
for all those that mine grn - come trade ...

the opportunity for grn is still HUGE ... there are still many coins left to mint in the network and so many more opportunities to use/trade grn ...

so mine or trade or both ... everyone is welcome ...

see you at bleutrade ... https://bleutrade.com/exchange/GRN/BTC ...

hi all ...

some progress has been made towards the mining and further stability of the coin ...

permanent miners have been implemented - which means that grn will ALWAYS be mined and minted ( for as long as there are coins of course ) ...

bleutrade ( https://bleutrade.com/exchange/GRN/BTC ) has had little trade - but its nice to see that movement is still happening ... slowly but surely is the best way ...

other minng sites have been identified and i have been checking them out ... with both the farm and by watching others mine ...

a major update to the OP is coming soon - as there have been changes that not many know have happened ...

the next intention is to get the website up and running - no matter how basic it may be ...

if there is any help anyone can put forward - it would be very much appreciated - as im a network/infrastructure guy and not a web designer ... :)

and tanx for all those that havent just turned their back on this - and have actually helped out so far ... you interest and help is invaluable - even if its just a matter of mining grn ...

more updates soon ...

hi greatorchid ... and welcome ... :)

the wallet wont sync due to the change in seednodes ... you can however change where the wallet initially looks for the seednodes ...

the seednodes are only a 'kickstart' more than anything - just to get the wallet active and start syncing ... after the initial data that the wallet needs to start - the seednodes are not 'needed' as such - unless you start a new wallet again ...

i will put together a 'howto' soon - but for now just follow these instructions ...

if you can follow the next steps - you should have your wallet running ...

1 - if you download the wallet and you have already got coins in the wallet then you NEED to save the 'wallet.dat' file from the previous folder located in the folder that you had run the granitecoin wallet from ... then replace the wallet.dat file of the new wallet with the old wallet.dat ...

if you dont have coins in the wallet - dont worry about saving your old 'wallet.dat' file - as the new one will be fine for the new wallet ...

once you have done that - you need to locate the folder that the granitecoin database/blockchain are held ...

- in windows these files are held in \Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\GraniteCoin\

then you need to create the 'granitecoin.conf' file and copy the following into the file -

rpcuser=username
rpcpassword=password
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
rpcport=21776
port=21777
gen=0
server=1
addnode=54.79.112.101
addnode=54.79.125.5
addnode=54.79.71.67

save that file and make sure it is actually 'granitecoin.conf' and NOT 'granitecoin.conf.txt' as windows settings hide the .txt extension by default ( which you can change in the folder settings in the control panel )...

once you have done that - run the granitecoin wallet again and wait for the sync to finish - this should take about an hour or less depending on the internet speed you have ...

2 - if you have followed the previous steps AND you are using the original wallet.dat file - then the blockchain will be downlaoded and you will receive your coins as an update while the wallet finishes its sync ...

3 - the previous steps will fix this issue ... the 'granitecoin.conf' file NEEDS the updated addnode=xxx parameters ...

i hope this helps - and is clear for you to follow ...

btw - im currently mining on coinking ( https://coinking.io/coin.php?coin=granitecoin ) as the guys on coinking have made huge improvements to the site and the stratum/management system - which makes for a better seamless mining experience ... at times i mine at zpool ( http://www.zpool.co/pool/grn/x11 ) and dedicatedpool ( http://grn.v2.dedicatedpool.com/index.php ) and coinmine ( http://www.coinmine.pw/poolinfo.php?coinid=86 ) if i just want a non-exchangeable pure granitecoin mining experience and just want to hold grn in my wallet ... but mainly its coinking now as its as easy as setting the workers to mine what coin anytime ( and from anywhere ) via the worker page ...

also - a BIG YAY for grn - we are on bleutrade :) (https://bleutrade.com/exchange/GRN/BTC ) ... so you can start trading as soon as you get your wallet running ...

let me know if you still run into issues ...

but most of all - have fun ...

The value of this coin seemed to fall off the table yesterday from 200 Satoshi down to 3 (that's what buyers are offering). What is happening with this, the website is dead, is this coin still alive? I know you can mine, but what's the point at 3?

hi allknowingeye ...

i see whats happening too ... its typical of a buy out to go at the lowest rate ...

if you notice the market history - its all been small sums ... 10 and 20 with the occasional 1000 or more ...

most coins go through a similar thing if people just want to dump the coins - which is fine if thats good for them ...

notice also that the buy order is set at 1 sat? and the lowest sell order is set at 100 sat ... seems to me a similar pattern that happened a while back ...

only 1 grn needs to be purchased from the sell order at 100sat to bring the 'value' back up to 100sat ( instead of the 3sat that it is at the moment ) ...

i am happy to purchase quite a few myself at a much higher rate - but anyone selling their grn as a dump will bring the price down to what it is now ...

its not an issue unless the nothing is done about it ... but i believe the market will pick up again ... ;)

i see you mine quite a bit on coinking ... i have also noticed that a few of the other sites ( dedicatedpool - zpool - coinmine ) have also had miners ...

thats a great thing to see - but dumping the coins wont do much in the way of price if thats all they are intending on doing ...

keep at it - have a great deal of fun while your at it - and let the market do what it does ... all will be well ... im a firm believer in stability by longevity ...

too many coins come and stay a very short time - then fall off by the way side ... grn has been here for a while and will continue as long as it can ...

lets watch what happens in the following weeks ...

yes - there is a huge chasm between them ...

the volume is quite small - and so the value is negligible currently ...

but as with any coin - its only as valuable as what people are willing to pay for it ... grn fluctuates tremendously - though like you said - volume is small ...

its a coin that i took over not very long ago - a learning project to be precise - in order for me to learn more about crypto and become a lot more proficient with coins in general ...

im happy and still smiling ... as this whole endeavor is an experience i dont get all that often ...

im a network and infrastructure consultant by trade - a businessman/entrepreneur in life - and now a miner and mining farm developer/builder ... nice big names ... :)

simply - an IT dude ... so its never been about the money for me - there is a huge amount of other coins that mine and convert easily to btc/usd/etc ... hence why i continue with this - and continue i will ... my learning experience wont stop here at grn ... this is the beginning ...

for as long as we can mine and trade grn - ill keep it alive as best i can ... i want ALL to have fun doing it ... no matter who you are ...

grn is a miners coin ... simple in design and structure - solid in algo - stable in mining and difficulty ...

its what attracted me to granitecoin in the first place - its simplicity ... no promises ... just a simple coin ...

trade WILL pick up - and eventually ( when i can devote much more resources and time to it ) - grn will be a worthy candidate for more than just trade ...

but until then - we will keep going and learning and putting as much effort into this as possible ...

if there is anything that you ( or anyone else ) is willing/can do - then lets do it ... always open to constructive suggestion and criticism ...

i appreciate all the help i can get ( obviously - hehehe ) - have had much - and never turn my back on any given ... but still have fun in the process ... thats really the goal - in anything any of us do ... at least for me anyway ... :)

your criticisms and suggestions are always taken on board ... and thats what makes this 'crypto-scene' as good as it is ... the brutal honesty ...

happy mining and trading mate ... smile heaps ...

hi all ...

hope today is a fantastic day for everyone ...

im working on getting a linux edition of the wallet running - as i have had many requests for it - and people are having a lot of trouble compiling the wallet under linux in general ...

depending on which version of linux you have will determine what is needed to get the wallet running ... so if any of you have a linux compiled version that is working - please let me know ...

i use fedora 20 - and in the past most have given up trying to compile it due to the restrictions that fedora and most redhat based systems have ...

after much research and internet trawling - the issue seems to be the openssl compilation ( specifically regarding secp256k1 curve ) that fedora ( and redhat based systems) distributes is the 'hobbled' version which is - simply put - the openssl version WITHOUT the secp256k1 coding ... this presents a big issue as secp256k1 is what satoshi initially used for the bitcoin wallet ( keys ) and so is inherent in just about every other derivative coin based on the bitcoin code - including granitecoin ...

this becomes a problem for the redhat based systems - as once the wallet is compiled - it doesnt actually run and drops in error due to the secp256k1 coding it CANT find in the openssl distribution ...

so i can try and use my limited and very rusty skills to compile ( more like 'hack' ) a qt version together - but will probably need some help along the way ...

this will be based on fedora 20 - but should work on most with the right versions of fedora and openssl ... but really - there are no promises or warranties ...

tanx to bitcointalk member newar ( https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=59184 ) for the point in the right direction yesterday ... it was a great help ...

im hacking away at it now ... ;)

so if anyone would like to help out by ideas or testing or just plain feedback - please let me know here or via pm - it will be appreciated ( which means give me your grn wallet address - hehehe ) ...

tanx ...

hi all ...

just a notice to let you all know that mining has been switched off at coinmine ( http://www.coinmine.pw/poolinfo.php?coinid=86 ) ...

mining is still active at coinking ( https://coinking.io/dashboard.php?view=granitecoin ) and zpool ( http://www.zpool.co/pool/grn/x11 ) with dedicatedpool ( http://grn.v2.dedicatedpool.com ) having connection issues through their servers (and as yet have not repaired ) ...

so if you are still mining grn - the two active ones are still coinking and zpool ...

we are looking at various other strategies to keep a more permanent pool open thats actually owned by us - the granitiers ;)

though that is further down the track - we are open to all options and ideas ( and help if you have the skills or resources ) ...

the above pools are VERY proficient with what they do and have been VERY helpful in maintaining service to grn ... many tanx ...

keep mining and trading ... and smiling much ...

i have successfully compiled the linux wallet for grn under fedora 20 x64 ... but not without some major hacking ...

if you are interested in testing the linux wallet ( which is GraniteCoin-qt ) then please let me know here - or pm me ...

the wallet seems stable but only if you patch the openssl installation OR create a separate installation ( and version ) of openssl ...

ill supply the details of what needs to be done in a fedora 20 ( and fedora 19/18 installs x64 as far as i know - still testing ) and most rhel based systems ...

What's so different about this coin now from before that warranted the creation of an entirely new thread?

my apologies for the time taken to respond - but that unfortunately is where life steps in :)

you are right majeis ... most of the thread has been in response to the redo of the logo and not much else ...

even the logo istself is at a standstill as the design volunteer is dealing with illness and cannot continue redesigning ...

i took over the management/responsibility of the coin after the original owner could not continue due to lack of time ( amongst other things ) and still had control over most of the back end and domain ...

he was very helpful in the transfer and very patient as well - as i took it entirely on the basis that it was a project ( and massive learning curve ) to the crypto world ...

hence the start of a new thread - a new direction - a new idea base ... but mostly of a foundation for the development of granitecoin ...

this was what ( i believe ) justified a new thread ... apart from a new direction for the coin ... my belief is also that grn is a good base for a better cryptocurrency ...

i am not the developer ... i believe that the original developer did a great job ... in fact - i have been in negotiations with a few developers and for one reason or another - negotiations fall through ... so as far as features and implementation of ideas and productive growth is concerned - they are all still 'on the drawing board' ... and as of late - not much has happened with the redevelopment due to lack of help and support ...

interest is still there in granitecoin ( and before you say it - no not just by me hehehe ) - and i did not 'take it on' just to 'let it go' when the going gets tough - or in this case - when the going gets slow ... :)

so here we are ... i am doing what i can with the little time i have and the ( even less ) help that im given to keep grn going ...

why dont i give up ( as ive been told many a time to - or to start my own coin based on the ideas i have for grn ) ? ... because its a good basic coin which can be built upon - with the right tools and the right people behind it ... i have the most of the ideas and infrastructure - i have the help from those that do volunteer their time to test and question and input ( which im very thankful for ) - i have the commitment ... what i dont have is the last piece of the puzzle ... a good developer ...

apart from all that - its a project that i knew would be a hard slog - and not one i intend on letting go anytime soon ... no matter how small or large it may get - unless something catastrophic occurs of course ...

grn is a basic miners coin - its long PoW period attests to that ... it provides no promises for anonymity ( or ANY promises for that matter ) or false ideals to misdirect peoples interest as most other 'scam' coins have done ... this is not the intent at all ... its simple - it can be used for trade or collection or payment without the hype of massive amounts of promises that most PoW/PoS or hybrid coins have ... and as far as i ( along with those that are still behind grn ) am concerned - it will be around for a long time to come - or as long as i can maintain it ... ;)

so in answer to your question - what so different? ... nothing at the moment - until i get a reliable and solid team together ...

besides - you need to have fun doing this 'crypto thing' as well as make money if the chance comes about ... who knows what the future holds for any of these cryptocurrencies ... may as well enjoy them while they all still exist ... and ride the wave if they succeed ... with a big smile :D

i really appreciate your questions - and input ...

How is this coin coming along? I am mining it with a 3MH/s Rig over @ coinking.io

This coin is very profitable over other x11 coins. Hope to see a price increase and work being done to this coin! Keep up the great work!!

tanx Luckylui ...

im hoping that some more progress will be happening soon ...

i too mine at coinking.io ( as well as zpool.co ) for grn ... the guys at coinking.io are an awesome bunch - very helpful in every way ...

since ive taken the responsibility/management of the coin from the previous owner - its been a bit of a uphill climb to find a good team to work with me to implement the ideas for the coin ...

but as they say - good things take time ... i am always looking and negotiating with developers and backend coders to implement and improve granitecoin with the vision that it will be useful - as well as profitable ...

apart from that - its a simple solid coin that allows a lengthy mining schedule ( hence the long PoW ) which gives us the time for improvement as we go along ... it also allows for those who already carry grn to cash in on the higher rate of return as we get things moving ...

help is always welcomed ... even if all you can do is get others in and spread the word to others and continue interest in granitecoin ...

oh - and also to mine and have a lot of fun doing so ...

we might be slow - but we will get there in the end ... :)

so tanx again for your support ...

i know mate ...

i can only work as much as i can to get things happening ... :)

but the appreciation is there for those that are supporting this coin ... it wont be forgotten ...

if we can get a few more people that can code ( for development of grn ) and design websites and can build a pool specifically for grn - then we will have what we need to maintain a healthy community driven coin ...

good things take time ... and time is what we have ...

bonus block of 100000grn coming soon ...

many tanx BitcoinNational ...

there are changes happening - and no promises of grandeur ...

just a simple solid and stable coin that can be mined and will continue onwards ...

the changes are going to be cosmetic for now - ie logo / website / pool ... then a good look at what improvements can be done ...

its all happening slowly - with no promises of anonymity or super-powers like most of the other coins ... which is how the best things progress ... :)

tanx again and have a great mining and trading experience ... and please spread the word ... ;)

Mining at Coinking! Let's do it :)
I wish a android apk was available.. :(

i just responded to another question on cryptobucket.com ...

i thought it was relevant and so will repost here ...

-------

at the moment there is a VERY good chance of hitting the block with only a few miners ...

there are only 3 places so far that are public ( and one private that i know of ) that mine GRN ... they are - https://coinking.io/dashboard/granitecoin/ - http://www.zpool.co/pool/grn/x11/ - http://www.7000pool.com/getting_started/ ...

all are easy to setup - coinking is the only one that needs the registration - but is the most comprehensive pool as far as functionality and stats ...

you can check where we are at with the block explorers - http://grn.blockexplorer.cc/chain/GraniteCoin/ - http://cryptobe.com/chain/GraniteCoin/ ...

i mine at all three depending on which site my proxy changes to ...

so i hope this time i get to share in this block - as i missed the last one ... :|

-------

so lets hope we hit it in the next few days ... :)

as for android - what are you looking for in an app for android devices ... ?

hi AikaPool ...

tanx for setting up your GRN pool ...

what i normally do is test the pool for stability and usage initially and if it mines well and i dont get any major issues with it - ill add it to the OP ...

looks like you have setup an MPOS pool ... i like MPOS :) hehehe ...

ill test the pool tomorrow morning ( its very late night adelaide australia time ) and add it to the list of recommended pools ...

as we continue to grow - we need to have some solid pools we can rely on ... :)

please send me your GRN address so that i can deposit some GRN as a thankyou / bounty ...

hi AikaPool ...

i have had a look at the pool and tested mining there ...

it all seems ok except for just one small issue ... when the difficulty changes as the mining happens - a lot of the times the proxies ( that i run all my miners from ) disconnect and have issues reconnecting again ...

this seems to happen only when the difficulty changes for the miners - i couldnt see it happen any other time ...

other than that - its an MPOS pool - its clean and easy to navigate and i LURVE the 'funds' feature on the top toolbar ...

ill add the pool to the OP ...

hahaha - yup ...

coinking and aikapool are the two places i have been mining and they are working well ...

zpool and 7000pool were quite reliable also - but just dont know what is happening as there have not been any communication from either ...

this is one of the reasons we are considering a grn owned pool that will NOT go down ...

for that we just need a dev that can setup a pool for a modest fee and relinquish control over it - under www.granitecoinx.com when it comes up early in the new year ...

but admittedly - coinking have been a strong pool with good service and a strong backing of a userbase ... and not just for grn - but all coins they carry ...

 :o  change the pool quickly

we need to ... and it wasnt really quick ... has been about a week now since its been down and no contact at all ...

the OP needs to be as up to date as possible - its only fair ...

we do appreciate that pool operators have setup granitecoin pools to start with - but we also appreciate that if it isnt being profitable for them - that they will also shutdown these pools at their discretion ... and rightly so ...

which is a good thing for the pool operators but a bad thing for granitecoin - which is why we need more permanent pools up - no matter how small or large the mining ... one of our own that will stay up ... ;)

the new year 2015 will have lots to uncover - and plans are starting to take shape ...

all good things take time ... and we have plenty of time on our hands ... we are in no rush ...

SIMPLE - SOLID - STABLE ... and now patient ... hehehe ...

have a good day Haslett5236 ...

hi all ...

we hope mining and trading has been good ...

working on the backend of granitecoin has been challenging but fruitful ...

we are working at a slow pace - but a steady one - and the new year will bring about more changes ...

one of the simpler but still challenging changes is the grn logo ...

the prerequisite has been put forward as it being simple - bold - and recognizable - without being over the top in the design department ...

cryptocoinrank did some ( in my opinion ) superb designs for grn ... these types of designs are awesome for a website and look really professional ... unfortunately he could not continue with the design work ...

but a simple logo for the coin itself - wallet and the like - i believe is needed ...

i put it out there for help with this and bct user Lucas1981 ( a graphic designer in his own right ) was kind enough to work with me on the logo ... the current logo is what we have to show today - posted here ...

your criticisms on the logo ITSELF would be very much appreciated ... constructive criticisms please ...

there following link connects to the two albums that are as their titles say ...

granitecoin work in progress ... and granitecoin proposed new logo ...

http://chrysophylax69.imgur.com/

https://www.dropbox.com/s/c2nplc7kk953mvn/granitecoin_RGB_www_version_small_400px%20400px_transparent%20background.png?dl=0

the proposed new logo ... its bright - its simple - its scalable ( which is a huge bonus - to recognise it even in little button format ) - and its incredibly easy to spot ... ;)

we would appreciate your feedback here or on pm please ...

in a weeks time - we will make a decision as to what will be done - especially with your criticisms in mind ...

next will be the website ... www.granitecoinx.com ...

hi all ...

hope everyone had a great christmas and new years ...

its been a bit of hit n miss with everything since just before christmas day till now with regards to moving forward with granitecoin ...

its now down to the real hard work ...

the first shipment of 750ti cards are now in ... the farm is getting built with much more on the way ...

the logo and website are still being looked at ... and will be underway soon ... still no concrete decisions as to which way we are going to go with it - but we have a much clearer picture of which road we are taking ...

2015 will have a few changes for us ... it will take time - as we dont rush anything - but we will update in the coming weeks the immediate plans ...

firstly though - the mining farm AND the logo AND the website ...

the farm itself is linux based and will be completely converted / built with nvidia 750ti oc cards running ccminer ... more specs to come ...

got a bit of work to finish here ... and its a long road on a hardware and software level ...

the bonus block is only about 8000 blocks away ... its the second last bonus block to be on the grn network - so mine mine mine ...

but most of all - have heaps of fun ...

will keep you all updated in the coming weeks with the progress of the farm - the logo - the website ...

Can't believe Granite is still around. Are you adding any new features? Any roadmap?


still around - yes ...

plan on getting anything new - yes ... albiet slowly ... like i have been doing ...

the transfer of the coin was a lengthy one ...

and as of yet - still dgont have the original accounts - even though the original owner was very helpful in the transition those many months ago ...

this meant the setup of new servers / new seednodes / new domain and so on ...

this now means that this year - there will be small changes ( such as logo - website - faucets - to name a few ) then the bigger changes will be faced - such as improving the wallet and coin facilities / adoption ...

this will take time ( and money unfortunately for me :P ) to get the ideas from mind to paper to text to dev ...

BUT - this also means that as a miners coins ( the original intent for grn hence the very long PoW ) we will be mining it for a long time to come ...

there is help being given along the way - but mostly its a slow development and a long road ahead ...

for now though - as i have stated earlier - its just a matter of getting the smaller things sorted and finalized - then the bigger things ...

we will still be here ... price has more than quadrupled from the tiny amounts that we were ( even though its still pretty small at the moment - its a lot better than what it had been for a while ) - and so growing as organically as possible is the main deal here ... we will always have our ups and downs - but will remain steadfast in keeping on going ...

features of the wallet are planned - for the functionality and use ( trade price / richlist / web-attached details / mining pools to name a few ) - and try and give it a better look and feel ... but that is a little down the road ...

we are discussing with various avenues and people to have granitecoin revamped - but again - that our main focus is organic growth ... we want to be around for the long haul ...

no promises - no fairytales ... just a coin that everyone can buy / sell / trade / use ...

and obviously mine ... ;)

facebook is now active - just setup a few days ago ...
twitter has been active - but on my account only now ...
cryptobucket.com - where updates and i can be found ...
and of course here ...

most things that can be granitecoin owned - will be ... eg - our own mining portal - our own mining farm ( in the process of being built now ) - our own faucets and our own giveaways / competitions / sales - all in our own website ...

op is always being updated and as things happen - gets refreshed ...

ok guys and gals ...

we are opening the granitepool to the public for testing ...

private testing was only done by admin and myself - and all seems well for #grn ...

now for the rest of the miners - beginners and veterans alike - as the pool seems stable enough to handle a lot more ...

there WILL be changes yet to be made - but we will finalize all of those in the coming week - we hope ;) hehehe ...

MPOS pool so sign up - add workers - start mining ...

url - http://grn-pool.granitecoinx.com/ ...
miners - stratum+tcp://grn-pool.granitecoinx.com:3333/ ... port will probably change ...

most instructions are on the 'home' and 'help' menu - but will continuously be updated ...

happy mining #granitecoin ...

those ARE the seednodes to kickstart the sync ...

you only one to work ( and all three are actually working - i just checked the servers that run these ) and you wont need them again after that ...

do you have the granitecoin.conf in the right place? ...

we found that seems to be the number one issue ... second comes the firewall restrictions ...

when its all done properly - the sync should only take a minute before it starts ( unless you have a VERY slow cinternet connection ) and the rest will comes through at the speed that your internet connection can handle ...

let us know if you still have this issue ...

our pool had come across a few backend issues a few hours ago also - these have now been fixed ...

mining was not affected - payouts and backend of pool was ... all good now :) ...

tanx mik57 ...

we are doing what we can to keep granitecoin going and to drum up more interest in it once again ...

we now have our own pool - and can see you mining on it :) ...

the port of the pool will change soon ( probably to port 3337 permanently ) - as will some of the other components of the pool to bring it inline with all the things that we have brought ( and are bringing ) into #grn ... all under the one roof ... all owned and run by #granitecoin and the community that it has ...

its slow progress - but we will keep moving forward ...

apart from our own mining pool - there are other things we have been looking at - and are getting done in the background ...

these things include the new logo - and other superficial things - but alongside that is the website and the implementation of many features for the website and wallet ...

the op is always being updated - so keep a watch on this thread ...

tanx again ...

btw - the next bonus block is a little way off ( at block 150,000 from what we can see ) but will be 100,000 #grn when it hits ...

so keep mining - smiling - and keep an eye out for the changes coming this year ...

grn-pool.granitecoinx.com - our very own #granitecoin pool - has gained traction and is starting to be recognized ...

more miners means more blocks hit - which in turn means more #grn to be distributed ...

one more bonus block of 100,000 grn is going to be hit on block 150,000 ... this will be a nice event as it will signal the last of the bonus blocks ...

some changes are going to happen with the pool - then the website will be started work on - then the integration of both the pool and website ...

faucet - logo - wallet and a few other things including promotion will soon be at hand ...

working slow - but as steady as we can with the few resources we have to get it all done ...

will keep you all up to date on progress as we go along ...

we are still in the process of compiling all the details and data to put not only here in the op - but also in the website and wallet ...

it wont be just a 'links' page / option - it will be more of a tutorial to mine and sync wallets and so forth ...

ill spend an entire day or weekend soon to get everything up to date ...

we use ccminer sph-mod for the farm machines also ...

do you overclock your 750ti? ...

our farm ones hit about the 2800 MH mark on stock clocks - i dont oc these cards ( as i dont know how to with linux ) ...

ok - so assuming you are using windows to run the miner :) ...

i think if stock hits 2800MH and oc hits 3300MH - wouldnt there be some more movement with optimization? ...

time will tell i guess :) ...

ill have updates in the next week with the op and mining pool ...

a few more changes will happen before the port change for the pool ...

Hey Granite Guys

I've been mining some different altcoins for a while and started granite as well.
But I've noticed there nothing you can really do with the coins you mine and I'm going to be hopefully offering a solution.

Before I do I wanted to get a feel from you guys about having an online store/marketplace where you could spend granite coins and other altcoins for real stuff.

Nothing crazy or far out I plan to offer small things like USB sticks and other services (maybe customized USB sticks?) where you can pay with your coin instead of your cash.

Please give me your thoughts and feedback on this as I am launching a site soon and want to see if anyone is onboard with this.

tanx for the message ...

this is one of the ideas we have been working on inthe backend ... a storefront with REAL 'stuff' ...

we have looked at a few - like openbazaar and such - but have yet to find a developer to help with it without it costing an arm a leg and the first born ...

we are looking at keeping things 'in house' under the one roof - fully operated by granitecoin ...

hi all ...

a few changes have happened since the last post and we are hoping to have everything underway with the changes planned for grn-pool.granitecoinx.com within the next couple of days ...

that is - by the 16th march 2015 at 00:00 GMT +0930 - the port change will be the first to take effect and will be permanent there after ...

the port will change from 3333 to 7000 ... so please make sure that your workers are changed also ...

the other changes to the pool will be shortly after the pool change and will be updated not only here on the OP ( https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=718939 ) but also twitter - cryptobucket - and facebook ...

we hope you enjoy your mining at granitecoin pool ...

any suggestions to improve are most welcome ... post here or pm me ...

tanx ...

OK!

But, it is not enough to mine GRN and bleutrade exchanges...

Must make it more popular GRN. I hope...

which is why ideas and help would be most welcome ...

so far - its been off our own back and our own expense - which is fine in the short term - but as you mentioned its about making it more popular ...

though not only more popular - but useful in lots more ways - as well as trading ...

it will get there - the ideas are still coming to be realized one by one ...

#crysx

A suggestion: Give aways on Facebook or twitter, use the fb ad section to announce it and target it to crypto enthusiast, they'll bite!!! it'll cost some, but not much, there won't be much competition on most crypto phrases.

appreciate the advice ...

fb was the last of the sites to be setup and only have 15 likes on there at the moment - so a marketing effort will need to be done ...

just thought i would share musings that seem to fall by the wayside on many occasion ...

food for thought - points for discussion - words off my chest ...

either way - just needed to share - as im interested in what people think of such things - hence why i bring them up ...

anyway - below is a cut n paste ... and link ...

Local Dark Markets!

http://cointelegraph.com/news/113837/local-dark-market-build-proposal-on-bitcoin-blockchain-circulates-on-satoshis-mailing-list


WTF!

Dark Markets on the bitcoin blockchain? Now your payment can be tracked, and the location of illegal deals will be put on the blockchain.

This really is nonsense, but its a sense of how much demand there is for decentralised services. 

edit

Open Bazaar on ServiceNodes, anyone?

we have been looking at openbazaar for a long time now ...

on SN? ... sounds good Wink ...

but how? ...

#crysx

At this point, from my part, development of service node applications and use cases is going to start being a little more reserved. I've heard rumors that xyz project is looking to do things very similar to what I've seen discussed here.

We'll have to figure out a way to resolve this issue. I don't like being guarded, but SPR could go from being worth $20k market cap to $20m market cap in the next 12-18 months, but not if we spill the beans before we have the chance to make hey.

being open sourced and open to the public - it wouldnt make much of a difference if it was guarded or not mate ...

knowing that 'this coin' or 'that coin' is the 'first' to come out with it means nothing in the long term ... only quality of product ...

ideas cannot be secretive here UNLESS we have a closed environment - which is impossible in this space ...

i have mentioned many many many times of a 'team' that is actually HEADED by a member that is considered ( and probably voted in ) as the one that spearheads this development - only to have this 'corporate style' of teamwork thrown back at me for the mere mention of it ...

ideas will NEVER be secure unless you have a team of dedicated devs and marketers and enthusiasts that not only work together - but also run under ONE 'law' ( for lack of a better word ) ...

the most successful 'teams' in the world work this way as do corporates and non-profit organizations alike ... leaders are just that - LEADERS ...

if spr is going to go anywhere with these 'plans' and ideas - it needs to follow an IDEAL then be directed by ONE team spearheaded by ONE LEADER backed by community ideas ...

but who am i to know any of this stuff? ... as far as anyone is concerned here - all this will fall on deaf ears mostly - AND spr will only fumble its way through ... which is quite sad - as this 'other' coin you are talking about is a well oiled machine running in almost exactly this way ...

guess who is going to come out ( and still is so far ) on top? ...

all you have been talking is just pool, pool set-up, mining, logo .. nothing that adds value. the coin is better dead.

all you have been talking is just pool, pool set-up, mining, logo .. nothing that adds value. the coin is better dead.

the coin is EXACTLY what it set out to be ...

a MINING coin - hence the long PoW ...

after taking over the coin - initially for the benefit of learning more about the network itself - the coin functionality - the pools - the websites - and many other reasons - it has pretty much done what it has intended on doing ... and did it VERY well ...

it is NOT about all the garbage that 99% of coins out there promise and dont deliver ... granitecoin set out to be a solid stable mining coin ...

its done its job ... add value to it? ... well - that is entirely up to what the coin can be used for ... which is predominantly ( dare i say it again ) mining - as well as trading - as well as anything else that ANYONE wants to use it for ...

xtrm - the only other coins that i can see out there that have delivered on any of 'their' promises are few and far between ... they are continuously being worked on by their OWN developers and as such continue to grow - and rightly so ... kudos to those coins - i own many of them as i am a miner and continue to mine all sorts of coins - including granitecoin ...

granitecoin did only what it set out to do ... simple ...

all i am doing ( apart from the continuous learning curve i have with crypto in general ) is building the externals around this BASIC SIMPLE MINERS coin ...

tanx for your input ...

you only need one seednode to be working to start the wallet off anyway and the wallet does the rest - searching for others on the network ...

dropping the fees altogether and rewarding the blockfinder an extra 7 grn for every block found - just to name two ...

it should start to sync almost immediately ( give or take a minute ) as it sees the seednodes ...

where have you placed the granitecoin.conf? ...

is it windows you are using? ...

if so - are you sure that windows hasnt got the file as granitecoin.conf.txt - as windows usually does unless you 'show file extensions' in the folder settings ...

if worse comes to worse - assign a seednode manually through the wallet console ...

there are many active connections ...

do you have a firewall blocking the port? ... that seems to be the second biggest issue - with windows mainly ...

look here - https://chainz.cryptoid.info/grn/#!network - and click on 'nodes' which will show you some of the active connections that the explorer has seen recently ... add them and wait a minute of two ... ( btw - all the addresses starting with 54.xxx are the seednode addresses - which shows they are active ) ...

or try manual input for a seednode to start the sync off ...

in the wallet ...

- click 'help' ...
- click 'debug window'
- click 'console' tab ...
- input the command in the commandline section ... addnode xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx add ...

this will tell the wallet to look at that node to see if its active and get info from it if its available ...

see if this helps ...

dont forget to back up your wallet.dat ( via the wallet 'backup' or from the directory itself ) so that yu dont lose any coins that have been sent to that address ...

is there a working wallet for this coin?

of course there is - look in the op ... the links are still valid ...

the only wallet that needs to be compiled is the linux wallet ... windows and osx are there and functional ...

unless of course you would like to compile the wallet yourself for windows and osx :) ...

#crysx




hmm mines saying no block source available....(out of sync) for the windows wallet

is it a newly installed wallet? ...

the original hard coded seednodes are all gone ( from the original owner ) so the wallet needs to have a look at the current seednodes ...

do you have the granitecoin.conf file in the right place? ...

windows is a fidly os - so be careful when creating a conf file ... in the op is a downloadable one - the one i use ...

let us know how you fare with it ...

#crysx
yeah i downloaded wallet and config file from the op....
rpcuser=chrysophylax
rpcpassword=x
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
rpcport=21776
port=21777
gen=0
server=1
addnode=seednode1.granitecoinx.com
addnode=seednode2.granitecoinx.com
addnode=seednode3.granitecoinx.com

all good :) ...

dont forget to change the rpcuser and password to whatever you want ...

we just reset those seednodes not long ago as we had to reset the servers they are on ... all works as far as we can see ...

you only need one seednode to be working to start the wallet off anyway and the wallet does the rest - searching for others on the network ...

if you have any issues - let us know ...

btw - send us your grn address for this new wallet and we will gift you some grn - as a token of good will and good mining ...

:) ...

btw - next week we will be changing a few things on our pool ...

dropping the fees altogether and rewarding the blockfinder an extra 7 grn for every block found - just to name two ...

we will be updating the op when this happens ...

njoi ...

#crysx
hmm still cant get it to sync for some reason....& that sounds good hopefully it can get some traction!



btw- i like free gifts!! lol :D GXxHteoBTjpG5amwqcoCf3gBjEF78eKEab

kool - free gift of 7000grn coming your way ...

it should start to sync almost immediately ( give or take a minute ) as it sees the seednodes ...

where have you placed the granitecoin.conf? ...

is it windows you are using? ...

if so - are you sure that windows hasnt got the file as granitecoin.conf.txt - as windows usually does unless you 'show file extensions' in the folder settings ...

if worse comes to worse - assign a seednode manually through the wallet console ...

like i mentioned earlier - it only needs one to start - then its off on its own :) ...

#crysx
ok i'll keep messing with it lol
& yes its windows 8.1
---still no luck :/ saying no block source available
sooo i'm thinking there arent any active connections?

there are many active connections ...

do you have a firewall blocking the port? ... that seems to be the second biggest issue - with windows mainly ...

look here - https://chainz.cryptoid.info/grn/#!network - and click on 'nodes' which will show you some of the active connections that the explorer has seen recently ... add them and wait a minute of two ... ( btw - all the addresses starting with 54.xxx are the seednode addresses - which shows they are active ) ...

awesome everything works now that its synced! had to add one of the nodes through the console now it works fine :)

thats great fastlan ... there must have been an error somewhere along the line with regards to placing ( or creating ) the granitecoin.conf file ...

So do you have any plans on the marketing part, to get some more attraction?

well - there are many parts to this equation that are laid down but havent been actioned ... yet ...

there is only so much that can be done with so little resources ... so we get as much done as possible - in the amount of time we have ...

and when i say 'we' - i mean the others i recruit to 'get things done' ... as well as the work that i can do ...

marketing is such a broad term - and there needs to be someone ( or a team ) that can be commissioned to help with this ...

plans - yes - there are many plans for the use and distribution and improvement of the circulation of granitecoin ...

ideas and mechanisms that ARE actually working ( in the background for now ) that are showing up slowly in time ...

there is only so much i can do alone ...

the 'help' to visualize and translate these ideas and plans into a workable system is always a paid effort - all from my own pocket so far ...

this is not a complaint - far from it ... im just saying that there is such a slow movement due to my lack of real 'funds' to accelerate the marketing - the production - the development - and the growth of ( not only ) the coin - but also the surrounding support structure for it ...

such is the way of this industry though ... but there is time - and i have patience ... :) ...

as has been commented earlier about it all just talk of logo and pool etc ... what we need to understand is that when the coin was originally developed - it had successfully attained what it was designed for in the first place AND it was dropped only a few weeks after - and NOTHING was left of it except ONE pool and no infrastructure to keep it going ... the original owner eventually gave up due to the negative crap that was thrown at him and the little time he had to deal with it all ...

thats where i came in ... and since i had been mining granitecoin since ( almost ) from the beginning of its existence - i thought maybe there is an opportunity to learn a great deal more about 'it all' ... ie - the whole crypto world ...

so here we are over a year later ... new seednode servers - new pools - our own pool ( yes - grn-pool.granitcoinx.com IS granitecoins pool ) - a new logo that is yet to be decided - a new website under construction - a new exchange ( bleutrade - as bittrex dropped granitecoin due to low volume ) - a new system of propagating granitecoin to be useable not just mineable ...

so in a word - yes :) ( after writing that novel above ) ... there indeed ARE plans to market it ... we just need to get the right team to do that ... and the cash for the 'help' ;) ...

but definitely not before we have ALL the groundwork set in stone first ... which means ALL of the infrastructure that we can manage - will be under granitecoins OWN infrastructure AND control - so that ther pools and servers and the like cant just 'shutdown' when they feel like and drop granitecoin at a whim ...

btw - did the 7000grn come through for you?

i think it may - or it may be a huge dumping situation when the major holders see it ...

either way - it will be nice ...

bleutrade has always been good - though quite low volume - but always good ...

would be really nice to get on both exchanges - and even get back on bittrex also ...

in any case - good news is always better than bad news ...

we will be working a great deal more in the coming months when its a full time thing for me ...

the roadmap will be a little way off ( not too far away ) - but will be here when we can put all these backend things we are working on to rest ...

its all very slow - but we hope that we can bring something to the table this year ...

the cryptsy votes have come a long way and we are thankful that are so many that support us here ...

even though you all dont comment much here - we know you are out there watching :) ... and we are appreciative of it ...

hi all ...

another bitcointalk thread has been created for #granitecoin in spanish - for all you spanish linguists in our midst ...

tanx to freemind1 ( https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=199420 ) and his work ...

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1025293.0

please take a look - and as i am not of spanish speaking origin - if there is anything that anyone can see as something that freemind1 needs to look at and / or change - please contact here and we can get it organized ...

updates here will be replicated as speedy as possible with our new spanish thread ...

dont forget to vote for #grn on cryptsy voting page ( https://www.cryptsy.com/coinvotes/ ) to help get us on there ... in the meantime - bleutrade is doing a great job ( https://bleutrade.com/exchange/GRN/BTC/ ) ...

its all in the op - which is going to be updated again soon with more ...

keep mining - trading - and have lots of fun doing it ...

Native here. Perfect translation.

On a side note i'm keeping an eye on this one. I don't know exactly why but i can see some potential in this project. Granted, this won't be the next BTC but i'm grabbing some GRN just in case. You never know, and scrypt mining is booooring (i never have to service the RasPi and ASICs). GPU mining is so much more fun, although i sold most of my gear almost a year ago.

hi didimidi ...

tanx for your vote of confidence with the spanish bct thread ... we are quite happy with it and happy with what freemind1 has done ... glad to see you are also ...

tanx also for the huge vote of confidence for granitecoin itself ... we work on it all the time - with slow but very steady progress ...

we see that you have been mining on our pool also ... any feedback you may have ( as with anyone else ) is important to us ... changes are still taking place in the backend of the pool - so feedback is pivotal ...

changes such as zero mining fees very soon - change in rates of donations to the pool if the miner feels philanthropic - bonus granitecoin rewards based on finding blocks as an addition to what you are rewarded from the block - and a few others such as a donation mining system ...

personally - ive been mining granitecoin just after it was first introduced - literally from the beginning ... i was so impressed with how good it performed as a mineable coin - and traded well - that when the original dev and the original owner needed to release it ( due to the amount of time - effort - and money involved in running it - as well as a huge drop in interest after massive dumps were made when #granitecoin was on bittrex at the time ) - i jumped at the chance ...

so here we are ... progress slow but on par with what granitecoin was originally was designed for ... simple - solid - stable ... a miners coin in its truest sense ...

so all the seednodes were setup on stable and reliable servers ... block explorers ( 3 of them at the moment - each with its unique features from basic to feature rich ) ... just recently organized our own pool based on mpos - which as explained earlier we are improving as best we can ... domains setup and ready to take on the website - which is still a little bit off - but is in the works ... the change of logo and graphics - which will include wallet and promotional material ... and a vast number of other things like faucets - giveaways - promotional setups - competitions ...

our focus at the moment is to get the donation / mining system up and running next ... this simply means that if you want to donate to help everything granitecoin grow - then there will a number of ways of doing it ... from direct deposits in #grn and #btc to pointing your miners at the server for a little while to help us with earning a few coins of your choosing or ours ( currently testing with x11 only - but that can and probably will change to other algos if this form of donation mining is stable ) ...

we will be putting all this info in the op soon enough - and sooner than later i will be devoting more and more time - until i can devote full time to this project ...

again - all this is a very slow process and as such ( and as always ) no promises are made - especially marketing hype promises to increase volume or value of the coin ...

we just believe in steady work to improve and set each stage in concrete so we can move to the next ...

ultimately - we want nothing more than to continuously learn - consistently grow and stay stable as well as become a usable and tradeable coin ...

ultimately - to have a LOT of fun doing it all ...

btw - let me know what your #grn address is and ill deposit a small tanx ...

:) ...

hi all ...

the farm will be down for maintenance for a little while ...

those who mine via Mintsy - and hire our farm out for mining - will still have the use of the AMD side of the farm via Mintsy ...

the nvidia farm is undergoing a minor maintenance period currently and will be back online this weekend ...

the nvidia side WILL however undergo a MAJOR overhaul and rebuild in order for the further expansion of the farm ...

more details will be posted as they happen ...

This coin looks great, it just lacks a good community. I wonder how we can get peoples attention.
I really like the pure POW on X11. POS is bad because the coins are generated for free, using hardly any electricity like mining on POW.

Coins in POS are not generated for free, one pc use 100W-150W of power. Btw provides peer for connection.
small reward for that is pos award.

tanx mate ...

i took over the coin a while back - and if you read earlier posts - ive explained my reasons and why progress is slow ...

i liked the coins so much ( yes - because it has a long PoW - and because we are miners here ) that i made a deal with the original owner ( who commissioned another dev to create and maintain the coin - but fell through ) ...

the issue was that the original owner really had no intention to keep on with it - so he didnt allow the transfer of the domains and accounts and all the other stuff that come with it ... he was a great help initially - but then like most people just faded into obscurity - and i havent had contact with him since then ...

which is why it was a HUGE learning curve for me ... the seednodes and servers and vps systems and pools and the coins itself - i had to learn the hard way and from scratch - and that takes time ... in my case - a LOT of time :P ... hehehe ...

but granitecoin succeeded in doing what it was meant to do ... to become a 'miners' coins - a simple - solid - stable coin that cane be mined by anyone ...

when i talk about 'we' - i mean the people that have actually 'helped' me with this - not those that got paid to setup the components that make up the structure of the coin now ... people like nonce and joblo - just to name two ... there are a few others - even with just advice - that have helped ...

everything else was paid for out of my own pocket - and still is ... vps servers and maintenance and mining all cost :) ... but im happy with that ...

i want the coin to be able to be used - not just for mining and trading - but for purchases of products and services ... at least here in australia for now ...

but more than all of this ... its ALL about FUN ... i know that sounds corny - but really thats what it is for me ... for others its something completely different ...

if i didnt enjoy doing this - i wouldnt be doing it ... and as of next week - im full time with it ... the coin - the infrastructure - the farm - the lot ...

the community is very small - only a few people judging by the wallets in existence to date ...

i have been mining granitecoin almost since day one ... so have accumulated and given away so much ... our pool is the project that ive been improving as much as i can - with the little time ive had - but again - as of next week - that will change ...

so in essence - its the community that will make the coin the usable currency that it potentially can be ...

now we are getting more and more affiliates as well as doing deals with other companies and coins to 'get it out there' - but dont push too hard .. as we want it to grow organically and not in a marketed 'pump n dump' way ... which is ( im pleased to say ) doing just that ...

we just need some good devs and good marketers and some good graphic / web designers ... no massive plans - just a good rate of growth and a good steady flow ... thats what makes this a solid coin ( and community ) ...

apart from that - im always here - and will always be here in the best capacity i can be ...

if help can be attained - great ... if we need to pay for services - great ... no matter what - if something needs to be done - we will find a way of doing it :) ...

the bigger and better the community - the more ways we can help also ... especially those that help here and in other places / coins ... like devs ( sp - djm34 - wolf - tsiv - tpruvot - etc ) - like other coins ( spr - mtr - and so forth ) ...

it will happen - it just takes time and patience and money - and the right people in the community ... :) ...

as for the PoW mining - it all takes power - but totally agree about the cost involved ... PoS is simply the cost of the machine - where PoW is the cost of the machine AND the extra miners ( whether they be video cards or asic or others ) ...

we have a very long PoW - due to its initial creation - as a miners coin ... so it keeps miners quite busy - and at the current state of the mining - is very easy to mine with low diff and not many larger players on the network mining it ... though there are quite a few smaller players mining and collecting - it doesnt take much to accumulate a fair few coins currently ... that changes of course - as the mining gets more intensive ...

help is always welcomed - as is advice and donations :) ...

either way - its a LOT of fun ...

agreed - it all uses some power ...

but what i think e1ghtSpace was actually meaning was that its necessarily 'free' - but that PoS costs are almost negligable 'compared' to say a 6 card gpu miner ...

its all good tho ...

im in the same boat also - i like mining - and x11 - and mining x11 :) ...

there are a few updates that i need to post in the next couple of days ...

a few changes - some small changes - some bigger ones - ALL to improve the coin and network and provide more resources for the community ...

hi all ...

a major issue with internet providers caused a huge setback for the farm and the accessibility for updates and to further our work ...

this seems to have been resolved and we are back on track ...

the farm is active and mining - but testing the waters at the moment as we dont want the stability of the internet connection to fail once again ...

i personally am on 'this' now full time ...

available here via pm - on email and on irc ( #granitecoin ) ... its all in the op ...

the farm will be redirected in the next few days across to minsty once again ...

so if you want to rent the portions of the farm - it will be available as long as the internet connections hold out ...

updates will be forthcoming as to what we have next in line - but the very first thing is to finalize the updates to the pool ... more on that when it happens this week ...

hi all ...

a few updates if i may :) ...


the farm ...

the farm is FINALLY in full-swing again and back on track with mintsy - mining away currently and available for rental via x11 ...

the farm is broken into 3 parts - so that mining different coins ( or the same using the different parts ) can be achieved at the same time ...

our internal mining stratums have been setup - to help facilitate the farm to mine where we point the stratums to ...

these stratums are for our own mining system - they are not the donation ones ... yet ;) ...

so if you are looking at renting the portions of the farm through mintsy - please get in and start mining ... the only thing that you really shouldnt piont the farm to is - yaamp and nicehash via mintsy ...

these two pools are the ones that we know of so far ...

the reason is the extranonce2 size for both those pools is not compatible with the mintsy stratums ... this is what i understand from mintsy tech support ...

mintsy tech support have also told us they are working on a 'fix' ( or a workaround ) for this issue - but we have yet to see any stats show up on the either yaamp or nicehash from the tests we have recently made mining to these pools through mintsy ...

we encourage you to use the farm ... whether you are interested in mining x11 coins in general - or mining granitecoin on our pool ...

we will be looking at other algorithms to base these rentals on - but our main focus for the moment was to just get everything running normally again ...

we have made a part of the farm unavailable ( chrysophylax.imhotep00 ) due to a maintenance issue with one of the systems ( miner ) within that section of the farm ...

the psu on that system needs replacement due to an internal short ( and subsequently a warranty claim ) and will be back online within the next 24hours while we wait for the delivery of a new psu ...

until then - the other two parts of the farm is available and active ...


the vps systems / servers ...

the company responsible for the provision of the servers have been in touch - and will hear from them again shortly regarding the new vps's ...

which means we will have our donation links setup soon ... and hopefully have the other servers setup for the donation links to the devs also ...

all those updates will be available here in the new donation thread - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1089744 ...

please do give generously to the awesome devs - whether direct btc or mining - when the servers come online ...


the granitecoin ...

we are also moving along nicely with granitecoin - and mining granitecoin will become more and more extensive for the farm also ...

we are slowly ( too damn slow for my liking ) getting the smaller more trivial pieces of the puzzle together for the wallet - and will have all these implemented as soon as we can ...


the granitecoin pool ...

the pool is currently being tested for the reward system we would like to implement - and seems to be going ok so far ...

this means that for every block that a miner hits - the miner will be rewarded a further 7 coins on top of the share of mined coins ... every single block - every single time ...

the pool will also be redirected to the new dns address very shortly ...

the new - grn-pool.granitecoin.com ...
the old - grn-pool.granitecoinx.com ...

we will keep them working in unison for a short period of time until the we phase the older 'x' domain out ...

true to a degree: I've been minting a PoS coin for months on my nas which consumes 5/10W, and the first coins with minting smartphone wallets are becoming common.
there are problems with PoS, but not power consumption ;-)

the plans for the pool and the new developments that have occurred have opened new opportunities ... stay tuned ...

here is the update on the donation servers - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1089744.msg11725010#msg11725010 ...

and granitecoin is only about 800,000grn away from hitting the 20million granitecoin distribution milestone ...

happy days ...

#crysx

Thanks for the update and great to see you're still working on this so hard! :)

much appreciated for the support ...

its a long hard slog to get it where we want - and time is limited to the projects at hand - especially for me ... but we are moving forward ...

donating hash to projects was a huge pastime of mine anyhow - used to be the largest hasher for seti ( seti@home ) in australia ...

so the network and the machines and all our computers are familiar with long hours and 24hr work ...

its just my older body that is the one thats requiring more rest lately ;) ... hehehe ...

more coming in the way of support and facilities for granitecoin ... it just takes a little time ...

tanx ...

welcome and enjoy :) ...

there are a few updates that need to be done on the op - which i will get organized shortly ...

one of the main changes is the registration ( and take back ) of the granitecoin domain - granitecoin.com ...

this has allowed us to change the redirection of the seednodes and the automatic seeding of the wallet ...

now the seednodes ( actually one seednode for now ) that is hardcoded in the wallet will automatically start the sync process and there is no need to add them in the .conf file ...

this also means that granitecoinx.com is no longer needed to be used ...

a few other things related to this - like grn-pool.granitecoin.com - is now the main address for the official granitecoin pool ...

lots more coming ... and will be updated as they are about to come to fruition ...

we are still in the continuing process of working on the backend plans for granitecoin - and will have a full update on that soon ...

for now ... the donation site :) ...

Hi #crysx !

What news? I'm back, I keep a lot of hope in GRN  8)

hi mik57 ...

i see you on the pool mining :) ... http://grn-pool.granitecoin.com/ ...

tanx for your support ...

a few things still in the process at the moment ...

a few of the servers are not co-operating with us and needed a full rebuild ... in the process of that as we speak ...

finishing off the some of the work today for the donation servers and links for devs - added a few more and testing now ...

will be notifying here -  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1089744 ...

the farm is still undergoing a makeover - and its not going to get any easier ... still a long way to go with that one ... the partner that was helping me with the design and implementation and build of the new frames is now no longer able to - and has left ... so the majority of that design and production is on my own shoulders also ... including the actual miners themselves ( both hardware and software ) ...

a few personal issue have arisen - which has slowed my time to commit to 'here' ... but hopefully that will be all fixed soon and i hope i can commit much more time to getting all this done ...

when the new servers are up - we will have a multi-mining pool that we can call our own also that will work in tangent to the mpos pool we currently have running ( as noted earlier ) ... since yaamp open sourced the pool code - we have been striving to get a few other things in place to get a mining pool up and running ... tanx to yaamp for that one ... that is only a little way off and will be in testing soon ...

our electrical issues have only been 'patched' and not completely fixed - so there is a real delay in that area ... which means the farm will not always be available through mintsy - or nicehash - to be continually rented ... its sporadic at the moment - but when all the backend issues are completed - we can focus on the rest of things i have mentioned above - and other developments like the market ...

all in all - its time that is on our side ... so we will make use of that precious commodity ...

Thank you for news...!

I hope that GRN will eventually grow.

I just undermine occasionally on your pool when there are no crowds...

How did you cards to get to +130 000 kh/s with 1 worker ?  :P

I just undermine occasionally on your pool when there are no crowds...

How did you cards to get to +130 000 kh/s with 1 worker ?  :P

no problem mik57 ...

there are a couple of ways this can be done ...

- set your workers with the same workername and same password to the same pool ... this is very innefficient and can be cumbersome for the pool - which will probably block the ip for a short while ... dont go this way ...
- set the workers each with individual names and passwords and point them to a third-party ( like mintsy ) - and create a single worker through them - then mine using that one worker ... thats one way we do it ...
- set the workers each with individual names and passwords and point them to a stratum proxy ( like slush or stratehm proxies ) and get the proxy to mine as one entity ... this is the other way we do it ...

the mintsy way of mining is the preferred way - as the miner can also be available for rent via mintsy ...

our farm is setup through mintsy in just that way - where we can allocate the farm as a whole - or segments of the farm to be available for rent at a specified price ... or make the farm unavailable if we want to mine certain pools / coins and dont want to be interrupted by being rented out ...

check it out if you like - https://www.mintsy.co/ ...

the only real drawback of using mintsy ( apart from issues that arise as its still in beta test ) is that you cannot use mintsy to mine through nicehash or yaamp type of pools ... the mintsy stratum and the nicehash / yaamp stratums are incompatible with the extranonce2 bit in the stratum protocol ...

but most other pools are completely fine ...

the other really great option is to have the 'worker' that you set on mintsy mine various pools that you setup in a round-robin style of mining ... upto 5 pools can be set that way - as long as they are the same algorithm ... thefarm is usually set to x11 mining so we have a huge variety of choice as to where we mine and how much hashrate we can throw into one or more pools ...

thats whay you see at times on the granitecoin pool - we will have 130MH or 250MH or a bit more - mining away granitecoin ...

Post by: chrysophylax on August 10, 2015, 02:00:00 AM
Your pool is down ?

no mik57 ... the pool is still running smoothly ...

are you using the old granitecoinx domain? ...

the pool is using its own domain now - not the one that was put up temporarily ( which was the granitecoinx ) ... just drop the 'x' in the domain url of your miner ... all other details are exactly the same ...

i thought that was updated on the op? ...

ive been very ill the last couple of days - and still am very ill at the moment ... ive only just popped in for a few minutes ...

if the op is still not updated with the new details - ill get to it when im back on track in a couple of days ...

apologies for the inconvenience - if that is the case ...

over the next few weeks - we will have a few changes finalized as well ... including the changes to the current mpos pool - a new multipool ( when the servers are stable ) - website - and a few others ...

updates will follow as we get them done ...

edit - i just checked and none of the changes that were supposed to have been done last week are there ... so ill get the changes organized as soon as i possibly can ...

our apologies for the messup here ...

we are no longer using the granitecoinx.com domain - only the granitecoin.com domain ... so anything you have ( including the seednodes ) that have granitecoinx.com - please change to granitecoin.com ...

OK chrysophylax....I'm finally here to take a look at GraniteCoin. Seems a pretty straight forward x11 algo. So, convince me what is special about it. Without me going in and checking and 'cuz you probably know, where does it lie in it's blockchain? Big question: What pool of 'HONEST' ops would you recommend for mining? Is it worth the ROI to mine /w just 3Mh or am I better buying on the exchanges? Oh...that's a good one too; what exchanges is GRN listed on?

I think you get my meanings here. Not belittling, I'd just like to know why GRN would be a good move? You've seen me on a number of different threads and know I have my hands in a little of everything. Who are the big holders and how much do they have? What can I get from GRN? ETC, etc,etc....fill me in.

Thanks much for your time and any replies!!

Happy mining or trading.   ;D

yay capnbdl ...

its an honor to have you here also ...

my sincerest of apologies that i have not responded any sooner - but i was very ill ( and still am very ill - but much more functional than i was ) and could not leave the house - let alone get into the office and do any work at all ...

you bring to the table some very good questions and a couple have been answered in earlier posts - but ill try and briefly re-iterate so i dont bore the hell out of you with explanations ... also - i have not taken ANY of this as belittling or an attack in anyway ... they are valid honest questions ...

so - whats so special about granitecoin? ... well - simply put - it achieved what it set out to do ( unlike so many coins out there today ) ... be a miners coin - hence the very long PoW - which can be accessible to the mining community at large and the general user / trader at the same time ... no false promises of anything that cannot be delivered ... just a simple solid stable coin that can be mined and traded and used ...

i am unsure if you know the history here - but i took over the coin itself - not designed or coded it ... i wasnt the dev of the coin ...

to cut a long story extremely short - the original owner commissioned a coin dev to design the coin using a mining algorithm that was favorable to miners AND extensive to the mining community ... x11 won hands down back then - which is why it is a straight forward x11 algo with nothing more than that implemented ( holding true to the 'miners coin' tribute ) ...

so to that end - it succeeded in what it set out to do ...

the issue was - that something happened in the background with the dev and the owner - and nothing more was developed for the coin ... as with most 'new' coins - naysayers and a great deal of 'FUD' was thrown around the place ... which caused a great deal of grief for the owner of the coin at the time ... apart from the fact the he had other things on his agenda - and personal dealings he had to take care of ... so i stepped forward - with no idea what i was getting myself into - to take 'ownership' of the network and design ...

now - i had been mining this coin from ( almost ) the very beginning ... after all - im a miner ;) ...

what i didnt realize was that the original owner didnt agree to - was the release of the domain and the servers ( seednodes ) and website - amongst other things ... this left me with the 'official' takeover - but not much else ... not even the contacts for the coin dev or any passwords for access to any of the servers ... he was very helpful at the time of the transition and helped organize a few things to ease the transition - but left me with starting so many things from scratch and no accessibility to the accounts that he held ...

so i went at it just the same ...

i setup seednode servers - i setup a search for a new logo - i setup ( and got a lot of help from ) arrangements with great community members utilizing their skills in various ways - like a mining pool - i organized ( and was very thankful that they took it on ) an exchange adoption ... what i also found was that unless it was under the 'control' of granitecoin itself - it would not survive at all - let alone grow ...

so here we are - slowly and organically growing ...

we now have the domain ( www.granitecoin.com ) back in our control - we have our own mining pool based on mpos ( grn-pool.granitecoin.com ) - we have been trading for quite sometime ( since bittrex dropped us ) on bleutrade ( https://bleutrade.com/exchange/GRN/BTC ) and they have been great ... i have been in conversations with logo and website developers and am currently in talks with a coin developer that is looking into the code ... alongside the plans for the market system and a new multipool setup ( which i am currently seeking a dev for the yaamp clone install ( i need two installations currently ) - of which have had no success as yet ) - the back end is growing considerably ...

since the bronchial illness of three weeks now ( and still continuing ) - i have done almost nothing with the setup - with the discussions / negotiations - with the other projects ( like the donation mining links for devs ) ... but i will be back on track this week - hopefully tomorrow - in getting all of the components finalized ...

not forgetting i am a miner ;) ... and own a farm of considerable growing potential ... thefarm will tie into this all of this also - but i wont be publishing what or how until the very last component of this puzzle is put into place ...

it is still quite a bit down the track - but i am doing a great deal of this on my own - with help here and there ( with payment of course to those that i need to commission the jobs i cant do ) from those that can help and can do their respective jobs ...

this weeks plan ... to have the OP updated - to have the donation mining links up and running and published ( https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1089744 ) - to have started the new search for a good logo designer - to further discussions with the coin dev for the ideas that i would like implemented in the wallet and the backend - and find a good web dev to setup ( initially ) a basic web site ...

as for the facts and figures - well one of the better places to find most of those is at fairglu cryptoid - https://chainz.cryptoid.info/grn/ ...

the major holders of the granitecoin are all there in the richlist - and i have asked fairglu to tag those that i know of ... the major holder of the coin WAS me - as im still mining this coin and always will and have never dumped the coin ( or any coin that i mine for that matter ) - but i have donated almost all of my funds to the granitecoin pool due to a change in the mining of the pool that i will implement very soon ... zero fees for mining at the pool - with a few structural changes to the pool itself - and the major change of a reward of 7 granitecoin bonus ( ongoing and not changing ) for the finder of every block that is mined on grn-pool ... this may be increased to 70 coins as an initial bonus and lowered later on a specific date - but that is yet to be decided ...

the other major holders are coinking ( mining pool ) and aikapool ( mining pool ) and bleutrade ( exchange ) wallets - but they could be almost anyone involved in the holding of those coins ...

the most recent addition of granitecoin to their arsenal of mining x11 coins is http://hashpower.co/ ... that addition was done only a few weeks ago ...

i couldnt tell you any of the others ... i just dont know ... although i still hold and add grn to my personal wallet also - which is in the top ten richlist ...

i am unsure if that answers all of your questions - but it is a rundown of the brief history and continuing development ( albeit very slow development ) of granitecoin ...

i believe that granitecoin still has a long way to go - and still has a lot of maturity to take on ... but i also believe its not just the coin or tech that is behind the 'value' of any coin - its also ( and predominantly ) its usefulness ... if it has no use - it is a coin that is just there for the sake of being ... that is something i have no intention of letting happen to granitecoin ...

but of course - there is the community and the steady growing interest in granitecoin that makes it a solid stable yet simple coin to mine trade and use ...

if you need help - there are always ways of contact ... from here ( bct ) to twitter ( my account as the original owner still has the original granitecoin account ) to facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/granitecoin ) to irc on #granitecoin ...

i can start you off with some grn if you pm me your wallet address ... its easy to install - and now that we have the www.granitecoin.com domain back in our ownership - you will not need the .conf file unless you want to solomine ... the hardcoded seednodes of the wallet will work automatically as long as you have full internet connectivity and no firewall blocking the ports ...

have fun - and let me know if i can help with anything at all mate ...

hi all ...

a copy and paste from the donation link site - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1089744.0 ...

-------

ive recovered after 3 courses of antibiotics - just finishing yesterday ...

its now monday and im on track again ...

quite a few developments and a lot happening ...

the donation servers are all functional - all active - all ready ...

now to publish the details and organize the final tweaks to the systems ...

i have been in talks with the coin core dev for granitecoin - and the logo / web dev for the new logo and graphics including the website for granitecoin ...

all of these things will be all tied in with the donation links - and thefarm has a role to play in all this also ... which means the two multipools are what i want to be working on next ...

all happening this week - and with a little luck and some damn hard work - we can have everything started this week - and fully functional by next week ...

ill copy the body of this to the granitecoin thread also ... and when the donation links are published - will copy it into the cccminer-spmod thread and the sgminer-dev thread ...

so good to be back online again ...

-------

further to this - i will be updating the OP to the current events and current details ... this will mean that by the end of the week - we should be back on the wagon and heading for the horizon ;) ...

a few ideas for the new wallet has come into play as well - but the details of this will only be implemented once the code has been 'cleaned up' and brought to todays level ...

so structurally it will be recoded - and asthetically it will have some modifications ...

this will also bring about the new logo - and the new website ... which will be in its basic form for the time being - but will continually take form into a full comprehensive site ...

any changes that will happen - will be done at the steady pace that the devs and i can operate ... so if you are reading this - and have supported us thus far - we have some good things happening in the next few weeks ... and some great things getting done in the next few months ...

the integration of thefarm into the equation will make for a seamless expreience once its all finished ...

im certainly going full steam ahead with the devs and designers and partners in this enterprise - and as we establish one piece at a time of this amazing and changing puzzle - we will bring you the news when it comes about ...

njoi the mining - njoi the trading - njoi the fun ...

Hi Crysx, your pool is down ?

it was - yes ...

for some reason the server it was sitting on slowed down to a snails pace ... its a vps on a damn good service and has a good uptime rate - so i dont know what it was that caused it ...

but ive reset and restarted the pool and stratum and all is well now mate ...

happy mining ...

btw - quite a few things happening recently in the backend - which will be public very soon ...

ill update in a day or so - when i can get each component working and active ...

hi all ...

an issue arose with the aws systems that are the home of the mining pool and stratum proxies ...

it killed mining for many hours - and as i worked through the night and morning to fix ALL the issues - it is back on line and running well ...

we are keeping an eye on it to make sure that if there is any issues over the next few days - we can and will rectify it ...

as for the progress of the backend ... well - its moving along very well - and actually quicker than we expected ... a few more adjustments and additions and we will have it all ready ...

the OP will be completely updated so that it reflects all the changes we have made ... there are too many corrections that are required in the OP and ill make sure its my job to have it up to date by the weeks end ...

as usual - ill update you all very soon ...

mine - trade - have fun ...

hi all ...

3 new servers have been commissioned and these will act as the new nodes for the grn network and backbone ...

the nodes will be built next week and commissioned when the blockchain syncs to each and every node ...

these nodes will also be the forerunner for the changes to the grn code - and will house the newest daemons and features ...

we are building a MORE solid network backbone to compliment the stable coin system we have running today ...

there will be no interruption that anyone will see / feel within the network as the changeover all passive and decentralized - as it should be :) ...

back with more updates in a few days ...

hi all ...

just updated the OP with some new inshights and details ...

more will come - and next week will be the start of something very new for us ...

the implementation ( and ultimately integration ) of a few components of theplan is coming along as expected - and we have good news to publish ...

the section - thenew - theold - thecurrent - contains the current status of granite and will be updated accordingly as the news breaks ...

we are working hard to bring the components online and active when they become available ...

for now - its all in the basics ... the logo and the graphics and the website ... simple and clean and usable ...

the website is the one stop where all the components will come together as they are brought online ...

it will change and morph into what will become the granite base or home ...

finalizing the donations link servers to get oline and will update the OP there also within the next 24hours - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1089744 ...

ill be back with more soon ...

hi all ...

just finished updating the OP once again as we have just finalized the basis of our website - and published it for the world to see and access ...

as per the OP ( yes - cut n paste ) ...

-------

TheSite has been Completed - Published - and is currently Active ... Please take a look and let us know what you think ...

... www.granitecoin.com ...

We want to make TheSite the hub of all that is Granite ... This is the basis with which we will build the entire Granite EcoSystem ...
Some of the links redirect back to TheSite ( like the exchanges links except for Bleutrade ) as we have yet to enter those markets yet ...
So we will be building TheSite up organically - like we have been doing with Granite since the early days ...
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated ...

-------

this will be built upon as we move towards completeing the other segments of the granite ecosystem - and are happy so far of the achievements ...

we will have a 'credits' list of those that have worked and built and designed - and in doing so - will have acknowledged their input into this project ... we are thankful of the work that has been put in - and it couldnt be done without their skillset ...

i personally hope that you like the new logo - the new website - the new feel ...

still much more to come and much much MUCH more to do ... we have only scratched the surface ...

tanx guys ...

its awesome work by an awesome author ...

the credits will be listed in the op when i get the chance next week to update ...

i must say - im happy with it ... and we are looking at a few additions and changes shortly ... life has to take place first - which is well worth the effort ...

as for the current update - i have FINALLY finished the full installation of the linux daemons for granite ...

thenodes are all in place - are running smooth - and are syncing perfectly ...

thenodes are a permanent fixture ( as were the others ) but unlike the windows based wallet ones that have been running - these are rock solid linux based granite daemons ...

the old windows based ones were problematic and always required a reboot more often than not ... we dont have that issue now ... ;) ...

the additions to the GraniteCoin.conf file for the nodes are still the same as before - but now will require VERY little maintenance - if any for a long time ...

addnode=seeednode1.granitecoin.com
addnode=seeednode2.granitecoin.com
addnode=seeednode3.granitecoin.com

they are now fully operational and active ...

the first - seednode1.granitecoin.com - is hardcoded in the wallet itself ... so there is no real need to add these to the .conf file ... but when the wallet gets a revamp - all three seednodes will be hardcoded to allow for a quicker and simpler sync operation ... especially for those that dont like to mess around with .conf files ...

thenodes ... simple - solid - stable ...

much like the namesake ;) ...

more shortly ...

hi all ...

if i read this correctly - does this not mean that there is ONE more bonus block of 100000 GRN to be hit soon? ...

Code:
int64 static GetBlockValue(int nHeight, int64 nFees)
{
    int64 nSubsidy = 100 * COIN;

    if (nHeight == 1)
    {
       nSubsidy = 650000 * COIN;
    }
    else if (nHeight == 1500) //bonus block reward nHeight
    {
        int64 nSubsidy = 100000 * COIN;
        return nSubsidy + nFees;
    }
    else if (nHeight == 5000) //bonus block reward nHeight
    {
        int64 nSubsidy = 100000 * COIN;
        return nSubsidy + nFees;
    }
    else if (nHeight == 10000) //bonus block reward nHeight
    {
        int64 nSubsidy = 100000 * COIN;
        return nSubsidy + nFees;
    }
    else if (nHeight == 20000) //bonus block reward nHeight
    {
        int64 nSubsidy = 100000 * COIN;
        return nSubsidy + nFees;
    }
    else if (nHeight == 40000) //bonus block reward nHeight
    {
        int64 nSubsidy = 100000 * COIN;
        return nSubsidy + nFees;
    }
    else if (nHeight == 60000) //bonus block reward nHeight
    {
        int64 nSubsidy = 100000 * COIN;
        return nSubsidy + nFees;
    }
    else if (nHeight == 80000) //bonus block reward nHeight
    {
        int64 nSubsidy = 100000 * COIN;
        return nSubsidy + nFees;
    }
    else if (nHeight == 100000) //bonus block reward nHeight
    {
        int64 nSubsidy = 100000 * COIN;
        return nSubsidy + nFees;
    }
    else if (nHeight == 150000) //bonus block reward nHeight
    {
        int64 nSubsidy = 100000 * COIN;
        return nSubsidy + nFees;
    }
    else if (nHeight == 262799) //bonus block reward nHeight
    {
        int64 nSubsidy = 100000 * COIN;
        return nSubsidy + nFees;
    }

    // Subsidy is cut in half every xxxx blocks
    nSubsidy >>= (nHeight / 262800);

    return nSubsidy + nFees;
}

we are on block 213682 currently as i write this ( https://chainz.cryptoid.info/grn/ ) ... so if that is correct - we will have another chance of a massive bonus ONE MORE TIME - at block 262799 ...

coin reward halving will happen ONE block after that bonus ( block 262800 ) ... which means a 50GRN per block reward instead of the 100GRN currently ...

i see trading has increased - and hope that will continue ... many many tanx to all those that have taken a refreshed interest in granite ...

i am working alongside some very creative and very skilled and talented people in their respective fields within the crypto industry now - and will be working harder than ever to make granite a solid ecossytem and not 'just a coin' - so that granite can be used and traded - as well mined stored ...

working with the donation links for the developers ( https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1089744 ) will be an integration i am looking forward to - as well as the integration of the new pool ... but that is a little later ...

ill alert with updates on here ( bct ) - twitter ( chrysophylax69 ) - facebook ( granitecoin ) - irc ( #granitecoin ) - and thesite ( when the blog / forum section is up and running ) ...

lets smash this last bonus block to pieces and get all that reward ...

but most all - have fun ...

hi ...

there is a list of coins that you can see in the crypto sphere and only a few of them have not been deserted ...

i have been working the backend ( infrastructure ) of granitecoin for about one and a half years ... stabalizing - solidifying - simplifying ...

there have been a lot of coins come and go - a lot of coin devs disappear - a lot of existing 'tech updates' that seem to be the next best thing and become just another fad to get you mining the 'new' coin and fade away ...

i have been with granitecoin from the beginning mining - and then with the advent of overtaking the coin - have been working in the background to get ALL the things that require a solid and stable network to continue running - and running well ...

if you want me to convince you that this is the next BIG coin - and the next BIG thing - with the next BIG tech - i simply cant ...

the coin was designed from the begining for mining and miners - with trading the secondary level ... it succeeded damn well at that - and still is - and when the original dev and original owner left it - i stepped in ...

a name change to 'granite' has now taken place - although the domain and code still refer to it as 'granitecoin' ... that is of no consequence and will be an ongoing thing ...

we now have ownership of almost ALL the infrastructure behind granite ( which we didnt when the takeover was done ) ...

thedomain - ours ...
thesite - ours ...
thepool - ours ...
theservers - ours ...
thenodes - ours ...
thecontrol - ours ...

almost all of the components that make up the 'coin' is ours ... so we do not rely on any other entity who may 'go down' and fall over that can adversely affect the network ...

ive been slowly but surely making the infrastructure ready and hardened it so that there will be minimal issues ( if there any at all ) when the growth becomes apparent with the network ...

the servers are active - the nodes active and permanent ( with more and more nodes being added monthly ) - thepool active and running and mining well ...

thesite is active and in the process of being updated already - only a week after its release ... the op about to be updated with the latest changes that have been made - including the translations of the op to greek and mandarin ( chinese - for those that rae uninitiated ) - for our greek and chinese miners and interested parties - with more translations coming on line soon ... looking for an italian and arabic translation service and will be update in the op when they get done ...

the wallet has now been updated to the latest v1.0.1 - which are small cosmetic changes for the time being ( like logo and checkpoint code ) before the full redevelopment of the wallet takes place - these will also be compiled for download soon ... though you have the opportunity to do that yourself if you are capable of doing so - as the latest code is in the git now ( https://github.com/chrysophylax69/granitecoin ) ...

the new logo and graphics - completed ...

the planning and design of the new multipools are underway ...

themarket - planned and in the process of construction ... a few more details need to be addressed before work can begin ...

im in no position to promise anything - nor to pretend there is a roadmap or create one that i will not follow - nor in a position to make you believe that things WILL happen if there is no intention to ... like many many MANY other coins out there that continue to do so ...

i will just DO ... the plans for the coin are small ... the plans for the coins infrastructure have been moving along and mostly completed - and are much larger ... the plans for the coins ecosystem is huge - and on its way ...

there will be no fake assumptions about where granite is heading ... it will just happen as it has been for the last ( almost ) two years since i have taken over - simply and organically in its own time ... and there is no intention to stop - let alone disappear and leave granite ... its a long term project - and im determined to see it through - regardless of how many other coins are out there ...

this will be a slow integration of the components that are currently being developed for granite ... which also includes theafrm ... its growth - its optimization - its use within the granite netwrok and integration within the granite infrastructure ...

invest in granite? ... i hope you do ... but do as you will ... i am fulltime into this as of a few months ago - and have been with granite for almost 2 years ...

if there is anything you can rely on - its the fact i will not give up until i see these things through for granite ...

im a miner at my core - and this is what started me ...

its not just about money - or investment - but also about the satisfaction of pulling together components to make this an ecosystem that runs seamlessly together ...

an ecosystem and coin that can be USED rather than just mined or traded ... all will be revealed in time ... and as ive said earlier - we would rather SHOW the reults - no matter how small - than just write about them in a roadmap ( even though i must admit - a roadmap would be nice ) ...

you make up your own mind with whether you should invest in granite or not ... all i can tell you is im here - and here to stay for the long haul ...

I having problems to synchronize my Granitecoin wallet. Is there a list of working nodes somewhere?

what is the issue tyz? ...

within a few seconds of the wallet being active - the sync should start ...

there is one hardcoded node within the wallet itself ( which will change to three in the next revision ) - and ( some just recently ) about another 16 nodes up and running and online currently ...

if its a windows wallet - then you will find the most common is firewall port restriction issues and / or modem / router restrictions ...

ive just started two new wallets - and they both started syncing almost immediately ... both linux and windows - without a .conf file ...

let me know ...

edit - there is a complete list of CURRENT nodes available here - https://chainz.cryptoid.info/grn/#!network/ ... just click node list next to the wallet version and the list will be shown ...

Thanks for taking time to answer, and a fulfilled answer on top of it. :) Investing isnt all about money, and im not in it for a quick profit, if it was so i would just jump on all the PnD groups coin pumping to earn som quick btc. Mined this coin a little from the start and was kinda suprised (and happy) to see it was still alive and kicking. Nice homepage btw. :)  anyway thanks for the fast and informative answer will dig in it some more but looks promising. :)

you are welcome ...

and tanx for the kudos ...

i was one of the first to mine the coin too - and when FUD almost killed the coin - i was very disappointed to see it all go down the way it did ...

im still mining this coin - and with the infrastructure being built and strengthened further - it will not be a short term effort on my part ... in fact - almost ALL funds and setup is coming out of my own pocket ...

apart from the time and effort ive put in - there are some very talented people working alongside me now ... and with the small version bump - comes the beginning of the new ideas i want implemented in the wallet as well as the website and the infrastructure that will make the granite ecosystem ...

working towards a better system of use for granite is ultimately what the end goal is going to be ...

the donation project is taking shape and becoming a component of the overall structure that granite will integrate into ... the donation thread is here - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1089744 ...

the issue with all this is simple - time ... i cannot alot a time frame for all this to happen due to the nature of the crypto environment ... but doing it alone - and enlisting the help of those whose talents are commissioned for granite - means that the ideas will become a reality soon enough ...

keep checking in - as changes have already started ... and will continue :) ...

tanx again ...

glad to hear ...

all the nodes are currently being updated to the latest build - v1.0.1 granitecoind ...

they will be offline for about an hour - before they come back on line with v1.0.1 ...

only a few small changes were done with the wallet - but that is an ongoing development - which is also v1.0.1 now ...

keeping at it ... ;) ...

ive setup a poll posing the question -

if you were able to mine granite using any number of algorithms - not just x11 - which ones would they be? ...

ill keep the poll going for a couple of weeks - while we are in the process of setting up the new base for the new pool ...

your input would be VERY much appreciated ...

Hi everyone !

I voted Quark !

I also like Qubit or Neoscrypt

Because I mine with nvidia cards... 5 X 950GTX + 11 X 750TI

THANKS

Yeah,

Well...I woulda voted a nVidia compat algo, but I have a coulpla scrypt miners that leave me to mine something else /w the Vid, so...there ya go. Up to the group!! Ya know what I voted for...

Later-

Post by: chrysophylax on September 24, 2015, 01:25:47 AM
i agree with you both ...

we have both amd and nvidia cards in thefarm - and most times split the mining to the algo most proficient for the cards ...

but x11 and quark have always been two of my fav algos ...

there are many other algos out there - but i highly doubt it will be beneficial to put the work into the code to be able to mine something that most wont even look at ...

we are looking at a great many options and i personally think that the most popular algos - as well some of the less popular ones - really need to be considered for addition ...

but there are more ways than just coding algos to be able to accomplish this - so work has already begun to cater for the change ... if any change is needed at all ;) ...

tanx for the input ... it really is appreciated ...

Title: Re: Granite | Simple Solid Stable | GRN
Post by: chrysophylax on September 25, 2015, 04:28:53 AM
hi all ...

thefarm will be getting an overhaul very shortly ...

the amd cards are ALL ( thats 26 of them ) going in for maintenance - and ONE nvidia card is going also ...

this shows the difference in reliability in cards from the same manufacturer - gigabyte ...

the amd crads hash VERY hard - especially when being used with the optimized bins and miners that are around ( like wolf0 bins and djm34 lyra2rev2 miner ) ...

unfortunately - this raises some very big questions about what to do with the cards when they all come back from warranty repair ... and these questions are raised for two reasons ...

1 - reliability and longevity ...
2 - miner / optimization availability ...

firstly - reliability has been quite questionable with the amd cards over the period of time we have been mining ... they seem to last about the 3 month period before a warranty repair is required ... nvidia cards have been hashing now for more than 7 months and only one card has failed so far ...

secondly - miner / optimization availability ... amd cards have had some good turns with hashrates and optimization for the miners and kernels have been forthcoming ... but more often that not - optimized miners are MOSTLY private - cost a great deal to purchase most times - and are MOSTLY unavailable to the general public ... withnvidia - the tables are similar except for the fact that the majority of miners and optimizations - including the progressive enhancements to the code by many of the community members seem to outweigh amd buy a huge amount ... even the private miners are not that 'pricey' if one was to purchase the private miners ...

if we were to collate the pros and cons of whether we should keep the amd side of thefarm or the nvidia side of thefarm - the nvidia seem to be winning on both counts ... and that is not even including other factors - like the power consumption rates and systems build tech ...

we want thefram to become a long term facility for both granite and the donation system( as well as other coins ) - all integrated into the same web facility ( which we are working on currently ) ...

so there are quite big questions to be pondered here ... and decisions that need to be made ...

after the pull of the amd side of thefarm for repair - there is also a 6 week wait for gigabyte to get anything done ... that is the experience we have had so far here in australia ...

ho hum ... that is the realities of corporate dealings ...

thefarm has been pulled off the rental market - so that this maintenance ( and subsequent rebuild ) can take place ...

tanx ...

I don't have as many cards as you, but had a bunch of amd cards (sold most of them) but none of them ever failed. Nor did the nvidia ones.
What's failing for me are ssd disks and, mostly, network equipment... a lot of routers, wifi cards, etc.
Just my experience :-)

I don't have as many cards as you, but had a bunch of amd cards (sold most of them) but none of them ever failed. Nor did the nvidia ones.
What's failing for me are ssd disks and, mostly, network equipment... a lot of routers, wifi cards, etc.
Just my experience :-)

BTW great work with all the "ecosystem", keep it going!

tanx pallas ...

im actually migrating the servers now instead of next week ... the new servers are quick - which will make for a good response to the miners ...

the next stage is the stratum proxy upgrade ... that is the one thing that will take a whole weekend to do ... so starting on that tomorrow ...

the granite ecosystem has started - and will keep it going and improving as best i can ...

most of the network equipment i have on occasion fail - but not often ... im a network and infrastructure consultant - so i source the best i can get for the infrastructure ... though recently ive opted for netgear products becuase they are cheap ( er ) than the cisco and highend server components ... spending most of the money on thefarm and the vps systems and servers ...

the amd cards have been a huge disappointment to me - as i REALLY like amd ... gigabyte especially - but those cards have just fallen over way too many times ... some cards are dead - but thats not the problem ... most cards die when they have someone like me hammering them ...

its the fan systems they have for cooling the cards that gigabyte designed - its crap ...

this leads to the cards overheating and making the enitre fan system unstable - and ultimately non functional ... some fans work - some dont ...

and come the warranty claims ... an eternity before we get them back ... missing 6-8 weeks of mining due to it ...

anyway ... i have sourced the gigabyte 980ti g1 cards for the new system ... they are about $1100.00AUD each ... quite expensive ...

for a single machine - 6 are required with two decent psu's ... corsair make a 1200w one that is platinum rated - AX1200i ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7SdDL-A28Sg ) ... depending on how much power each card draws will determine whether two psu like this are necessary ... it will mean that this machien will be almost $10000.00AUD when its finished - but hash fast like a cheetah with the raw power of a lion ...

im unsure what to do with the amds when they get back - so when i send them off on monday - i will have some time to think it over ... they will more than likely be sold - but - may be kept operational as a different part of thefarm for one of the operations i have in mind with the integration of the multipools and donation links ;) ...

i really appreciate the positive feedback - especially from one of the devs like you who have continued to work with other devs - and the communtiy as a whole ...

hi all ...

we are currently testing the new forum that has been setup for the granite site / coin / development ...

the donation by mining ( dbm ) thread will also be included there and will post here from time to time with the updates ...

we want to make it an enjoyable time in the forum ... so being a test forum currently - it will go through changes as we get to make them ...

the test site is here - http://granitecoin.com/forum ... but when in full working order and out of test - it will be here - grn-forum.granitecoin.com ...

please have a look and register and have a look around ... it is currently bare until we start getting some flow in there - but we will continue with posts and updates regarding granite on there ...

your constructive feedback is always welcome - and encouraged ...

help us make the granite forum a part of the granite ecosystem we are building - with all that is granite AND crypto ...

tanx ...

hi all ...

first ...

donation access have been slightly changed so that when you do mine for the devs and look at the nicehash link - you will not be confused by whether you are mining the right link ...

when the stratum proxies are active - under the nicehash graph is the worker for the dev selected WITH their name now ... so if you scroll down below the graph on the nicehash page - you will see the name of the dev and the current hashrate that is being pushed through that link ...

for example ... if you are mining scrypt for doantion to wolf0 - and check the nicehash site - you will see his name under the graph ...

https://www.nicehash.com/?p=miners&addr=1Jp2R7dF9gYr872FkXiap2MaYaHNEfwWhZ&a=0&l=0 ...


second ...

some of the servers have been changed over to the newer systems and has been completed a week ago ...

the whitelist for the servers on nicehash needed to be changed - and a request sent to nicehash support ... unfortunately ( by a mistake on my part ) the whitelist was not complete ... which means there are a couple of servers ( including ace / crysx - so im not exclusive to this ) that are now not functional on the nicehash system ...

these are ...

- donate-ace.granitecoin.com / donate-crysx.granitecoin.com ( same server ) ...
- donate-pallas.granitecoin.com ...

sorry pallas ... you are stuck with me on this one ...

nicehash support have been emailed with all the correct details - and i await their reply ...


third ...

two new servers have been commissioned and are active - but are awaiting confirmation from nicehash that they also will be added to the nicehash whitelist ...

these are ...

- donate-tnelson ...
- donate-stratehm ...

the op and the devs details willl be updated shortly ...


fourth ...

due to the massive attacks we have recently ( killing two of our servers ) - we have been looking at various ways to combat such issues as ddos attacks ...

as of 12 hours ago - we are now running ALL our servers and systems including the website through cloudflare ...

as we grow - and the systems become more complex and more accessible - we will expand the security further ...


fifth ...

slack channel #granite ...

our new slack channel is now open - and i will be frequenting the channel often ...

pm me the email addresses of those who want to be a part of the discussions ...


sixth ...

thefarm is undergoing changes ... big ones ...

- new cooling for thefarm ...
- new design for thefarm ...
- splitting of thefarm ... amd / nvidia ...
- new and improved premises for thefarm ...
- new systems in place for thefarm ...

all these things and a few more are being implemented currently ...

the amd section of thefarm has been separated - will now be private - and will be taken off the rental systems ... it is now being used exclusively inetrnally and for the development of 'bigger and better things' ...

the nvidia section of thefarm will continue the way it has been going - with the exception of a few upgrades ... i am working on a design for a frame to contain the machine that will house and protect the new gpus ... this design will encompass the requirement for the gpus that use more power than that of the gigabyte 750ti oc lp cards we are currently using in thefarm ... yes - i am talking about housing the gigabyte 980ti g1 gpus - 6 at a time - with room for upgradability ... which will allow for other larger cards to be slot right in also ...

this is a longer term project - but will be the one that replaces all the machines in thefarm eventually ... it is being designed from the ground up - to be modular AND easy to connect - install - and move ...

plug the network cable and power cables - setup where to mine - and start mining ... simple - solid - stable ...


more updates soon ...

ill be copying this same message on the dbm thread - as ive melded the updates together ...

have fun mining ...

has cuda 7.5 finally caught up to cuda 6.5 speeds? i thought 6.5 was most efficient in mining.

the first of the systems are completing now ...

compiling ccminer-spmod ( which we currently use for the nvidia branch of thefarm ) has compiled flawlessly ...

the performance seems to be slightly better than the c6.5 compiles - in that - they have 'slightly' better numbers at the miner side ...

the rest of the machines are yet to finalize the full upgrade to f22x64 - which will then be upgraded to c7.5 ... so the testing will be ongoing for the rest of the day when it is completed ...

so far though - the results look quite promising AND the compilations are not broken ... ie - there seem to be no 'cpu validation errors' compiling with c7.5 as opposed to compiling with c7.0.28 - which was broken in more ways that just 'cpu validation errors' ... that version gave poor hashrates and the majority of algos just refused to work properly - being erroneous in many different ways ...

an example - using thefarm gigabyte 750ti oc lp cards ... test machine ( 6 x gigabyte 750ti oc lp - stock with NO oc - as that is how we test ALL the units ) using ccminer-spmod v70 compiled in f20x64c6.5 gave an average hashrate of 34700KH ... f22x64c7.5 is giving an average hashrate of ( and this is current as of writing ) 34770KH ... as seen below ...

i must admit - that the test machine surprised me - as i did not expect that it would perform so well ... as c7.0 was a broken release ...

when the devs release code specific to c7.5 - i believe it will be a far better performance level that what we are seeing at the moment ... especially when you consider that nvidia themselves have resolved a great many issues within the compilation sphere of cuda 7.5 ...

so in answer to your question - yes ... i believe that c7.5 has not only caught up to c6.5 hashing speeds - but if this test is anything to go by - has surpassed them ... and that is still using the current code optimizations that are intended for c6.5 that the devs release - as far as i know ...

which is why after 12 hours of testing - thefarm is being fully upgraded to take advantage of not only the optimizations - but also the current compilation advances ...

and in fedora 22 x64 - it seems to work flawlessly ...

btw - the amd branch of thefarm is no longer being used publicly for rental ... it is now exclusively internal - and for the projects that are assigned to it by the dev involved ...

the amd branch is also currently being updated to f22x64 with catalyst v15.7 and sgminer 5.1.1-19-g8bf1-dirty ( modified sgminer-dev git - for use with the specialized / optimized binaries ) ...

the amd branch is a little more complex to upgrade incomparison to nvidia - as amd are notorious for a slow ( if ever ) release of linux drivers ... as such - the install needs to be 'hacked' into existence using kde instead of gnome as well as an earlier version of x11 ( the xorg version - not the algo ) and the earlier version of the catalyst driver - not the latest ...

that being said - the full upgrade should be finished by tonight - and hopefully fully functional by tomorrow ( sunday ) morning ... when i will hopefully get some sleep ;) ...

???  :o

i can set a test now for that on the machine that was mining purely x11 ...

f22x64c7.0.28 was hashing at approx 13100KH ...

this machine is now on c7.5 - so will test that over the next hour ( which seems to be the most reliable timeframe for the miner to settle ) ... it will be using ccminer-spmod v70 ( as it was prior ) ...

back with a the results ...

i couldnt tell you what the results were with x11 on c6.5 - as i wasnt running x11 with c6.5 - but i can say that the hashrate was around the 2800KH per card on the gigabyte 750ti oc lp ...

back in an about an hour with the result ...

as you can see - c7.5 is running stable with slightly better than f20x64c6.5 performance ... but not by very much ...

hi all ...

thefarm has been successfully upgraded to fedora 22 x 64 and cuda 7.5 ...

one machine has issues - but is currently manually running ... a full reinstall may be necesary on that system ...

the amdbranch of thefarm is almost completely upgraded to fedora 22 x64 and catalyst 15.7 ( fglrx 15.20 ) using kde ...

ill start posting to the granite forum ( currently still testing at http://granitecoin.com/forum/ ) very shortly so that we can keep focussed on 'all things granite' ...

Any updates ? ::)

certainly ...

ive been inundated with the physical side of the rebuild ...

the cooling / airconditioning issues have become worse and thefarm has needed to be pulled down for the time being ... ducting and industrial fans are currently being installed and certain machines are being replaced ...

the internet will be down for another few days ( as this is the first time its been up in 3days ) and i will personally be away on 'personal business' for at least a week after that ...

so there have been many things happening in the background - and i will have a full update when i get back ( in the next week or two ) ...

granite itself is being rebuilt - from the pool to the wallet to the other components of the ecosystem - so there will be changes in the coming weeks and months ...

thefarm will continue to be rebuilt on a physical level - and when that is finished - will be integrated as part of the granite ecosystem as a permanent granite mining system ...

part granite - part alts - ALL coin ;) ...

need to go off line for a few more days now ... but will be be back online after that - and i will popping in from time to time to checkup on what is happening while im away over the coming weeks ...

mine - trade - and have a lot of fun ...

would like to let you all know that i will be away for at least a week starting tomorrow ...

personal business is what is taking me away - an if all goes well - will be back in about a weeks time ... if things dont go well - i will be there longer ...

leaving here with my partner at 0500 tomorrow morning and driving for approximately 16.5hours to get to our destination ...

if you have any questions - or help - please post them or send them via the other methods as i will be checking in from time to time when i have internet connectivity ...

as i have stated - it may be a prolonged stay - but we are hoping that it wont be and thing swill go well ...

there is a lot of work being done - and i will be sure to get back into it as soon as i get back and keep you all updated ...

until then - mine - trade - and have a lot of fun doing it ...

hi all ...

there will be a small outage to all the donation servers and granite website within the next hour for a short period of time ...

in fact - anything associated with the granitecoin.com domain will be affected for that period of time ...

this is due to a server relocation / migration for the domains - and all associated services ...

please bear with us as our isp starts and finalizes this process ...

down time can be estimated at 30mins-60mins - but may possibly be more due to the unforseen issues ...

we appreciate your patience as we make this a better ecosystem for granite - and donation systems alike ...

tanx fastlan ...

a few changes will be coming with those also - if we can get it finished ...

a new wallet is being released this weekend also ... some code change and irc integration to the official granite irc channel ( ##granite ) built into the wallet ...

testing has proven it works well for standard irc - BUT - the responses of the irc bot dont seem to come through and we are working on that ...

ie - you will see the command ( eg - !balance ) within the wallet irc client - but not the out put the bot within irc sends ...

we are working on getting a multi algo pool running ( yaamp or yiimp clone ) - but that seems to be slowed quite a bit ...

although a multi-algo granite mining system is on the cards and being investigated ...

with this type of pool - a single grn address is used and you mine with what ever available algo is on the pool at the time ... so far - the three big algos ( sha256 - scrypt - x11 ) are the base algos - but we are looking at a few others ... hence the poll at the top of the thread ... looks like quark and lyra2v2 is next on the list ...

unlike the current pool we have - which is based on mpos ( more of a single coin pool - grn-pool.granitecoin.com ) - this pool is more than likely going to be based on unomp ...

ya that sounds like some good motives to me! myself i like the lyra2rev2 , just wish the vertcoin devs had as much motivation as you! lol

good job on the pool/website

tanx fastlan ...

a few changes will be coming with those also - if we can get it finished ...

a new wallet is being released this weekend also ... some code change and irc integration to the official granite irc channel ( ##granite ) built into the wallet ...

testing has proven it works well for standard irc - BUT - the responses of the irc bot dont seem to come through and we are working on that ...

ie - you will see the command ( eg - !balance ) within the wallet irc client - but not the out put the bot within irc sends ...

we are working on getting a multi algo pool running ( yaamp or yiimp clone ) - but that seems to be slowed quite a bit ...

although a multi-algo granite mining system is on the cards and being investigated ...

with this type of pool - a single grn address is used and you mine with what ever available algo is on the pool at the time ... so far - the three big algos ( sha256 - scrypt - x11 ) are the base algos - but we are looking at a few others ... hence the poll at the top of the thread ... looks like quark and lyra2v2 is next on the list ...

unlike the current pool we have - which is based on mpos ( more of a single coin pool - grn-pool.granitecoin.com ) - this pool is more than likely going to be based on unomp ...

#crysx

ya that sounds like some good motives to me! myself i like the lyra2rev2 , just wish the vertcoin devs had as much motivation as you! lol

hehehe ...

i think its all about not losing faith in yourself - and not losing focus ...

it WILL happen - its just a matter of consistent persistence ...

especially if you believe in it with all you have - like i do with granite and the ecosystem im building around it - then it WILL get somewhere ...

even if it takes longer than you exepct ...

tanx for your support and input - its very much appreciated ...

new wallet will be released this weekend as testing is now finished ...

hi all ...

we have been working towards a release of the new wallet with irc integration to the official granite channel ( ##grante ) - and will have that release tomorrow ( sunday ) for windows only for the time being ...

there is no osx version as yet - and are working towards getting a reliable source to keep the osx versions compiled and published ...

the linux version can be built for you if requested - but will be a static build which i can supply within an hour of request ... otherwise - the git has the updated code for you to compile a dynamic build ( or static if you know how ) for your linux distribution ...

if you have any questions - please ask ... ill help with anything i can - especially if its getting a successful build ...

which leads me to the newest update of the change in code ... there are now three seednodes hardcoded into the wallet ... this means that the permanent nodes that are available currently - will be accessible from all the newest wallets ...

- seednode1.granitecoin.com ...
- seednode2.granitecoin.com ...
- seednode3.granitecoin.com ...

since we have been building and stabilizing the backend - we really didnt have any issues with syncing since the permanent seednodes have been up and running stable ... but in order to alleviate any situations where syncing and connectivity may become an issue ( as i have seen with a few other coins ) - the three permanent seednodes have been hardcoded into the wallets ...

the links will be updated tomorrow for you to download the new wallets ...

so please do upgrade to the new wallet and join in the chat and local updates on the official granite irc channel - all through your wallet ...

we are now working on the official granite forum also - and will start to publish the updates more on the official granite forum - than here ...

more to come soon ...

hi all ...

the new wallet is available for download from the link below - or grab it from the link in the op which is being updated now ...

as has mentioned int he previous post - this is a windows release and it would be appreciated if you could test the irc functionality within the wallet ...

we do know of one issue that we are looking into - and that is the bot results are not displaying in the wallet circ client ... working on locating where the issue is and resolving it ... apart from that issue - all seems to be functional so far ...

other additions are hyperlinks to other areas of the granite ecosystem - like the website - twitter - as well as current and ( hopefully ) future exchanges ...

enjoy this release - as there is more to come ...

tanx thefix ...

there will be a few smaller changes - then a major change ... not only to the wallet - but the entire system ...

if all things work as well as id like them to - we will have a very functional wallet and coin that can be useful in more ways than just mining and trade ...

thefarm will be part of it also ... but that will be much farther down the track ...

im glad it works well for you also - as i have both linux native and windows native running on the same linux machine ( fedora 23 x64 ) ...

discussions tomorrow - and next week regarding what the inclusions are going to be for the next update ...

tanx again for testing this out ...

come join us on our official irc channel - ##granite ( double hash ) ...

we are always raining grn on the channel and discussing many things crypto related ...

soon to have theforum full operational too ...

hope to see you ( and all ) there ...

that would be nice ...

they have a voting section we are actually on ... but time has run away from me once again ...

in the next few minutes ill be posting the next set of changes to granitepool - that is in preparation for the next step of the evolution of the granite ecosystem ...

you support is very much appreciated - as is all the support that is given from all around the world ...

hi all ...

if you are a regular user of granitepool - you may see some cosmetic changes made to it ...

today was the first day of the changes - and hopefully for the life of the pool ... at least - thats what we are aiming at ...

this is all happening for one main reason ... a new pool ...

a new pool that has better features and has a more rich backend with a solid foundation to build on ... more on that when its done and open for testing ...

for the moment - some of the changes that have been sorted have been a few in the front end - and mostly in the backend and configuration of granitepool ...

below is a list of the items that have been changed ...


frontend / cosmetic ...

- name changed from GraniteCoin to granite in pool header ...
- logo replaced in the welcome screen when clicking the 'home' menu ...
- the instructions in the 'getting started' page are now corrected with the right domain ( it was granitecoinx.com - now granitecoin.com ) ...
- the dashboard now has the exchange grn / btc ticker totem - even though it doesnt seem to function for the moment - but its there and will be fixed as soon as we can figure what is happening with the bleutrade api ...
- pool frontend should load and refresh a lot faster now - with a longer time for page to stay up ... that is the result of one of the backend changes ...


system / admin ...

- the wallet daemon has been compiled and updated to the latest v1.0.2.0 ...
- blockchain data and info being extracted from the granited daemon and from https://chainz.cryptoid.info/grn/ ...
- coins have been allocated in the wallet for cold storage - as too many users are using the pool as an online wallet ... which is fine for the time being - but all users will be required to move their funds off the pool in the next couple of weeks ... the amount held in the pools cold wallet is a cool 7million grn ;) ... so we urge you all to withraw your coins as soon as you can ... we dont want to be holding this much for much longer ...
- the refresh for the site is now at 5second intervals for the statistics and data - eg hashrates ... 5minutes for the average share statistics ...
- graphing days are kept to 25days - block statistics at 70days ...
- hashrate modifiers now showing in MH/s not KH/s ...
- google analytics has now been activated for the pool ...
- date settings changed to australian standard - day / month / year / hour / minute / seconds ...
- irc channel for support updated to the official irc channel - ##granite ( grnbot is back in that channel also ) ...


backend / technical ...

- naming conventions have all been standardized to 'granite' and not 'GraniteCoin' in the pool ...
- payout amounts are at 7 minimum and 7000 maximum ...
- minimum manual payment has been lowered to 0.7grn ...
- minimum donation has been lowered to 0.7% ...
- transaction fees for both manual and auto have been lifted to 0.07grn from the previous 0.01grn ... this is to cover ALL transactions - no matter how big or small ...
- BONUS REWARDS have now been set - and are active as of this post ... explained below in more detail ...
- payout transaction limits have been increased to 700 transactions for both manual and automatic transactions per run ... the limit is set so the RPC wont get overloaded ...
- round purging has been set to 70000 with a 7second sleep - to allow a reduction in the load of the database ...
- archiving settings have changed to 25 maximum rounds and a period of 60 * 52 ( 52days ) ...
- ZERO POOL FEES - pool fees have been terminated altogether ...
- cookies duration have been set to 21607seconds - which allows uninterrupted pool monitoring without being logged out ...
- system load setting has been set to 7.0 ... this means that some api calls will be disabled if the load gets above this - to allow smoother operation of granitepool ...


------- ------- -------


BONUS REWARDS ...

the bonus rewards works two ways - 'block finder bonus' and 'pool finder bonus' ...

the 'block finder bonus' ( your worker bonus ) is set at 7% of the amount of grn that a block pays ... when a worker finds a block - the block bonus is paid to THAT worker ( which at the current rate at time of posting - 100grn / block means an EXTRA 7grn for every block your miner finds ) ...

the 'pool finder bonus' is a similar bonus that gets paid at the same 7% for THE WHOLE POOL - split over the workers at the time ... this bonus is in addition to the 'block finder bonus' ...

so when you mine and check in the 'transactions' menu - under 'my account' - you wont see any more of these ---

406301 2015-12-04 08:05:07 Fee Unconfirmed 245631 0.43087971 ( not long before posting ) ...

and more of these ---

406368 2015-12-04 10:26:07 Bonus Unconfirmed 245676 7.00000000 ( my worker found a block ) ...
406374 2015-12-04 10:26:07 Bonus Unconfirmed 245676 2.63947078 ( extra bonus across the pool workers ) ...

so where is all this extra grn coming from to pay for the bonus reward payments? ... from the pool fund itself - NOT from the block reward ...

bonus grn coming from our pockets ... its just a way of giving back to the miners - for mining at our very own granitepool ...

below is an official explanation from the MPOS documentation - in verbatim ... for the technically inclined of course ...


-------

Block Bonus

Payout a block bonus to block finders, this bonus is paid by the pool operator, it is not deducted from the block payout! 0 = disabled

Default Values:
block_bonus  =  0  


block_bonus
This bonus is paid by the pool operator, not from the block!

---

Pool Bonus

Payout a general bonus to all your miners. By default, this is based on their payouts and will pay out an additional percentage to their income. This will be covered from your liquid assets! As a payout time, you can either chose payout or block. Block will payout the same percentage based on the block value to all miners! So setting this to 1% on a 50 block reward pays 5 coins per user from your liquid assets! Payout based bonuses only pay a bonus total to the block values percentage.

Default Values:

pool_bonus       =  0  
pool_bonus_type  =  payout

-------


these system settings and changes from the frontend to the backend have been initiated implemented and finalized - so that we can prepare for the new granitepool that is about to be built ... in fact - the new granitepool is one of the new pools to built - but more on that when it comes to public testing ...

the new granitepool may look very similar - but will have some features and code changes to make it a more versatile pool for the admin - and the user / miner alike ...

this is still very much the prelude of a much bigger system for granite - and the integration of each component into it ... from wallet to pool to donation systems to theforum to thefarm ... its all here for the setup and infrastructure to build a bigger and better granite ecosystem ...

so spread the word to come and mine here at granitepool ... http://grn-pool.granitecoin.com/ ...

your comments and feedback are always encouraged and very welcome ... the more miners - the more blocks - the more bonus ... and much more to come ...

granite ...

hi all ...

the ticker has been fixed and is currently working away without any issue ...

the ticker shows the price of grn / btc pair at the last price from bleutrade - where grn is exchanged ...

tanx for the coding skills and effort of an irc veteran - the one known as xisi - this ticker was fixed in a matter of minutes ...

mine well everyone ... there is much more to come ...

Hi granite-ites, just voted on the multi algo question and wanted to leave my two cents..

I always thought it would be good to have a coin that could be mined with both types of ASICs as well as FPGA, GPU and CPU. You pretty much have it covered with x11/sCrypt/Sha256d. So whats left is choosing a CPU algo that doesn't have any gpu miners built for it or one that would be difficult for gpu miners to be created. Momentum may be a possibility. Modified primecoin is another one. What would be perfect is to come up with a new algo that relies on CPU instructions to work. Something that uses only say SSE2 or AVX2. Its beyond my understanding so I can't say if this will work or if it is even possible.

Its beyond my understanding so I can't say if this will work or if it is even possible.



this is a method we have looked at for a while now ...

being a miner - i understand the importance of such a decision and the weight it has on mining in general ...

the consideration is threefold ...

first - there is the idea ( which you have made also ) in creating a 'left field' out of the provision of gpu style algo and run with that ...

second - the idea that we stick with the algo we have ( which is a rock solid algo - especially for gpu ) - or if we are to change to another algo - change to one that is just as popular ... like quark or lyra2v2 or neoscrypt ...

third - dont change at all ( which is more towards where im leaning ) and instead - create a multipool that allows the mining and conversion of algos for granite ... which covers the majors you have mentioned AND allows us to mine in various other algos and still maintain a good stance with with crypto coins in the market as well as ours ...

there are issues with all these points - which we wont go too in depth with ... but for the most part - the first two require a great deal of coding and hardforking the coin / wallet ... this is obviously not a major issue - as many coins fork and do so quite smooth - even our mothercoin bitcoin ...

hardforking may happen anyway as part of the growth of the code - and some of the features we are looking at implementing within the framework of the granite code may require it as part of the progression ... so we are definitely looking at these concepts ...

the third concept means that we will involve a number of other coins into the mix - but on a pool basis ... this in itself is a lot of work - but for the most part - is the 'easier' way to go by means of coding ... its still a feat by any means to run a large exchange multipool ... but it also means that we require the skillset of devs that have had experience in this method ( in fact - experience with multipools period ) and require their on-going assistance ...

the only issue that i see with this is simply that most exchanged multipools mine certain coins and dump the mined coins as immediate sell orders on the exchanges ... that is NOT what we are about - and certainly NOT what i personally think is a good thing for the crypto community as a whole ... ive been mining for too long in this industry to know that ... the plus side is that we can start really getting involved with other coins - which is a great thing to do ... im involved with a few coins now - and will continue to grow the help and friendships that come of such alliances ... especially if they involve generous companies like crypto cloud hosting and the project they have been working on ...

the lean towards a multipool with a single granite payout via exchanged coins is because it is better to have a number of coins being EXCHANGED and TRADED rather than dumped onto exchanges for another coin ...

so the search for a dev ( or team ) that can do such a thing - that allows the conversion of coins on a TRADED basis - is what we would be looking for if we moved in that direction ... the big bonus to that is - that the dev involved would get continuous work AND we can add algos as time progresses ...

in any case - ive been looking at a number of ways - and the addition of cpu / asic / fpga centric algos is a very good suggestion ...

tanx for you input ...

have you seen the majority of the coins on there? ...

want to talk about lack of volume :) ... hehehe ...

of course - you are correct in that the volume for grn is not there yet ... but im working so much and so hard to get things moving pallas ...

its a matter of time - effort - and commitment to sticking with the plans i have for the granite ecosystem - not just the coin ...

lets hope that all can be done in the next few months into the new year - as i will be non-stop to make sure that this is given every chance to succeed ...

if we remain on bleutrade - so be it ... its been a good platform for us - and they have supported us in everyway ...

i say you've brought it a long way already! you've done alot with little help

i appreciate your kind sentiments fastlan ...

there is still much to be done - even with the all the things that has been finished ... much of the basis of granite have shown their face - and have born fruit ...

but there are many plans the have only just started - and many many more that have yet to be initiated ...

i will be the first to admit - that had it not been for the help from people ( like pallas ) - even if it was just advice - then granite would still be a fair way back along the path of development ...

there is still much to be done as mentioned - and some changes have taken place over the course of the last few months ... from the granite coin - to the granite infrastructure - to the granite development and community ( the granite ecosystem ) - the foundation is becoming set in concrete as we work towards building the entire ecosystem around the infrastructure we are building currently ...

i have recently ( as recent as yesterday ) changed some of the code that granite lives off ... its been more maintenance and cleanup more that coding itself ... but there are changes that differ from the way granite used to function ... this has happened in the way of fixing of some code - cleanup of unneeded parts - and starting the change of naming convention ...

compiled versions will now be compiled with the naming convention 'granite' and not 'GraniteCoin' ... character coding has been changed so that both qt4 and qt5 can be compiled with the same name and without errors like it had only yesterday ...

so - the output will be as follows in a linux system - with windows having an .exe extension ...

- qt4 : granite-qt ...
- qt5 : granite-qt ...
- daemon : granited ...

these changed are only the first step - as the GraniteCoin name is an instric part of the code currently ... this means that the home folder will still be called GraniteCoin and the configuration file still GraniteCoin.conf ... the complete overhaul of the code will take place as changes happen and testing occurs - so there wont be any requirement for a forced upgrade to the wallet or daemons just yet ... the one other change is the versioning for the peers - where it will also read as granite ...

ie - getpeerinfo will show this -

"subver" : "/granite:1.0.2/",

instead of this -

"subver" : "/GraniteCoin:1.0.2/",

here is the test systems showing on the network on chainz - https://chainz.cryptoid.info/grn/#!network ... you will have to actually click on the network tab - as bitcointalk doesnt launch the whole url ...

its all happening slowly as we progress through it all ... name convention is obviously only the very tip and start of the trail down the iceberg ... but it is necessary to make the code simple and stable - to make granite solid and uniform in more than just name ...

thefarm ( nvidia ) and farmamd ( amd ) are also undergoing an huge revamp ... although thefarm will be the entity which exists with granite currently - farmamd has become exclusive to development and testing for the developer that has worked in tandem with me on many things farmwise ... wolf0 ...

this does NOT mean that wolf0 is working exclusively with us - but farmamd is now a separate entity to the ecosystem - and is exclusively for the use of wolf0 ... unless things change and agreements finalize - this situation will remain steadfast ...

thefarm however is forming into a nice modular part of granite ... it will be updated - optimized - enhanced - and integrated into the ecosystems so that the entire ecosystem can benefit from it ... this includes the devs and community also ...

graniteforum is also getting a boost in use ... i shall be updating more on theforum than i will on bitcointalk for all things granite ... with the prospect of moving all updates and discussion items there eventually ... http://granitecoin.com/forum/ ...

dbm - the donation mining system - will also be getting a revamp and will become an integral part of granite when its time comes ... this is an important part of the ecosystems - as it gives back to the devs of the community when miners donate their mining hash ... so miners - please donate some hash power to the benefit of the devs of your choice ... https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1089744 ...

i will be unavailable for the next few days for any work on the systems - but i will be online when i can with skype and theforum ... irc will be inaccessible to me during that period of time ...

the current code is in git - so please be my guest to clone and compile and test the newer code ... just make sure to backup your wallet and conf file - and always have the previous stable version of the wallet at hand ...

tanx again ...

hi all ...

wishing you a very happy christmas and a great new year ...

ill be away for a few days - until the new year - and will start work again on granite - its infrastructure - and the entire ecosystem when i get back ...

so many things happening next year ... some already underway - some just starting - some planned ... all will start to take shape ( and some released ) in the coming months ...

i have been helping a few other coins out ( as some of you have already seen ) in certain areas - which has taken some of my time ( for example - mtr - bst - drz ) - but have always been working on granite ... the continuous work on granite will NOT change - this is my baby :) ...

our small community of investors and traders - miners and followers - will see things start to take shape in ways that will pave the way to make some of the ideas we have into a reality we can see and feel ...

the end of january will see the solid establishment of the granite team ... people that have helped out and continued with the work for granite - who have now committed more time for the evolution of the ecosystem ... its a small team so far - but names will be published as the core team - and also those that give their time and effort to help with the growth of the granite ecosystem by designing / developing / improving the components they are specialists in ... contractors and team members alike ...

the granite forum is now the home of not only updates - but also releases - and the website will have a full update shortly ... bct will obviously be frequented often - but the majority of the news will be on our forum ... same with giveaways - competitions - community involvement ( some of which are forbidden bitcointalk ) ... we would like to see you there - and involved ...

have an awesome christmas and new year - and will see you on the other side ;) ...

tanx mik57 ...

lots happening next year ... including expansion into bigger and better premises after march 2016 ...

I hope 2016 will be a great year for granitecoin, i think we need some exposition out of the bitcointalk, go beyond than techno enthusiast, to the mainstream market

thats one of the things we are working ... an idea i had a while ago - which will be worked on heavily in the next couple of months ... this will be the prelude of themarket - and all it has to offer ...

until then - njoi the time you have until work starts heavily again ... ill be back full time in the second week of january 2016 - ie after jan7 2016 ...

will check back intermittently before then ...

@ #crysx :

I must have missed something ...

what is the "bonus" on your official pool ?  :P

Thank u in advance.

the bonus is the mining bonus given to any miner that hits a block ... as well as an overall mining bonus for every block that grn-pool hits for ALL miners as a share to ALL miners ...

these bonus amounts are 7grn for the miner for EVERY block that they hit - and another 7grn total distributed to ALL miners on the pool for helping hit that block that grn-pool hit and is shared / split amongst all the miners ...

so 7grn to the miner + part of 7grn to the total pool + NO fees on ANY of the services provided by the pool = a few bonuses every single time a block gets hit on grn-pool ( even if its not you that hits the block ) ... and NONE of the bonuses come from the block rewards - the bonuses come from the POOL reserves ( when we did charge 1% fees - and any of the donations that the miners donate ) ...

the reason i had this changed to this model from the fee model is two fold ...

first - to entice more miners to the pool itself - with zero fees + bonus block rewards + bonus pool rewards ...
second - to allow a 'fair' way of distributing the coins that are available from mining with us on our official pool ...

the pool now relies on donations from the mining ONLY - and not any fees ... i think thats the best way to work with mining as ALL miners ( as you know im one of them ) have enough fees and costs attached to mining in the 'real' world - without having to be slugged again from the coins they are supporting by mining them in the first place ...

part of the plans that are in place ( and some have already started ) that will be implemented in 2016 for granite is based on this same structure and philosophy ...

if fees can be cut down to bare minimum - they will be ...
if fees can be placed strategically for the benefit of the miner - they will be ...
if fees can be cut out altogether for the miner and the user alike - they definitely will be ...

a comment i responded to on another thread i frequent ( and a good one at that ) hints on just the 'skim of the surface' of what plans are in place for granite ... this is the thread comment ( but i will copy below ) ... https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=864994.msg13377588#msg13377588 ...


-------


Which altcoins have the most nodes?

I saw this article which looks into concerns about the number of bitcoin nodes and got to wondering how many nodes the various altcoins have?
http://bitcoinist.net/btcc-deploys-full-bitcoin-nodes-to-keep-network-secure/

granite has 23 nodes currently on the latest compile of granite ( 1.0.2.0 ) - 16 of which are granite owned - operated - and maintained ... with another 9 on the previous versions ...

so far - the node list has grown quite rapidly these last few months and we hope will continue to do so - due to the major change we will be undertaking in 2016 and the granitenode system we will be implementing ...

once this system is in place - the nodes will carry a certain number of granite coins as a minimum to become a full granitenode ( a masternode with PoS earnings ) and continue to accrue coins via the node ... a simple system to incentivize granitenode adoption - but also a way to help make it easier to make the consensus rules for the network ...

ultimately its about stabilizing the network - but it is also about allowing the creation of an application layer for future apps to 'sit' and function on ...

a lot for the future of granite - but all will be revealed on both bct thread and the granite forum thread - alongside the projects that will be integrated into the granite ecosystem ...

bct thread - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=718939 ...
granite thread - http://granitecoin.com/forum/index.php?topic=15962 ...
associated grn project - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1089744 ...

we hope that the nodes will reach 700 and more by the end of 2016 ...

#crysx


-------

so the bonus grn that is given - is given as a tanx for the use of ( and subsequently the support of ) the official granite pool - http://grn-pool.granitecoin.com/ - AND also as a tanx for supporting the network by using your valuable resources as a miner to mine here as well ...

i havent finished building the infrastructure for granite yet - and the ecosystem is growing slowly but surely ... which is the best way to be in my opinion ... grow organically and implement the features that benefit those that are involved with granite ... ie - the miners - the traders - the users ... and that includes me also - as ive been a miner of granite since ( almost ) the very beginning - so i KNOW what miners and traders go through ...

yup - ive written another novel as a response to you mate ... hehehe ...

ill be back on deck after the first week of january ( jan7 ) full time again ... the next few months after that will be some very very hard work ...

hi all ...

have a happy new year - and may 2016 be a very fruitful and eventful one that brings smiles and lots of laughter ...

we all have bad times - we all have good times ... we all have seen others hurt - and laugh - and cry ... we have all felt these emotions and gone through the thick and thin of life in general ... we are all a part of this great thing called life - and we are all players in the game of it ...

life is sweet and warm if you let it be - life is bitter and cold if you let it be ...

i live by a few sayings - but one that i live by that is truer than all ... a saying by henry ford ( if i remember correctly ) ...

'whether you think you can , or you think you cant - you are right!' ...

lets be the ones that bring 2016 into the light of life - and think that we CAN much much more often than thinking we cant ...

so much planned - so much in store - so much to be done ... and we CAN ... we just need to find the way to ...

as long as we THINK - we do ... we are right ... negative or positive - we are right ...

njoi your night - day - and all that comes forth from the coming days and year - and the years that come thereafter ...

think well - think positive - think imaginative ... it will happen ...

happy 2016 all ...

I would like to personally express my sincere gratitude to granite and crysx for helping the newly launched x15 pow/pos coin, evergreencoin (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1272091.0) with the donation of 3 seed nodes.

In a time when it is common place to see coins spreading hate for eachother, I do find it inspiring to see such generosity coming from another coin. I do agree with crysx in his mentality of a joint effort in crypto and do think we will reach our common goals much easier united rather than divided. I do eagerly await the opportunity to repay this favor.

If you have not yet heard of EverGreenCoin, please visit our thread linked above or see our website (http://evergreencoin.org) to learn more if you wish. EGC is a coin that is supporting our planet's environment. Through renewable energy mining operations, reforestation, and wildlife rehabilitation, we think we can put the 'eco' in economics. We have very ambitious ideas and soon will be announcing partnerships that will facilitate these ideas. You, reading this as a granite community member, can feel very welcome to the EGC community as this generosity will not go forgotten by the EverGreenCoin team or community. Again, thank you kindly.

Granite and evergreen. Crypto united for our common goals. Sounds... peaceful.

hi all ...

so many things have been happening and so much going on - all tied in with what has been planned ...

i will respond in full very shortly to the wonderful comments ( and promotion ) that evergreencoin posted above - and also bring an update to what has been happenning and what has already been brought out to enhance the granite ecosystem ...

for the time being though - it looks like we will have ONE more chance to earn ourselves some hefty grn - due to the last bonus block that is about to hit ...

block number 262799 will contain the very last of the 100,000grn as a it remains as the very last bonus block in the blockchain ...

its almost upon us - and those who hit the block will share in the granite riches it will bring ...

the code ( below ) also shows that the very NEXT block 262800 is the halving block ... so from there on until the next halving - there will be 50grn as a block reward - not 100grn ...

-------

    else if (nHeight == 100000) //bonus block reward nHeight
    {
        int64 nSubsidy = 100000 * COIN;
        return nSubsidy + nFees;
    }
    else if (nHeight == 150000) //bonus block reward nHeight
    {
        int64 nSubsidy = 100000 * COIN;
        return nSubsidy + nFees;
    }
    else if (nHeight == 262799) //bonus block reward nHeight
    {
        int64 nSubsidy = 100000 * COIN;
        return nSubsidy + nFees;
    }

    // Subsidy is cut in half every xxxx blocks
    nSubsidy >>= (nHeight / 262800);

    return nSubsidy + nFees;
}

-------

so get mining if you want a share in the 100kgrn block - or the whole lot if you are solo mining and are lucky enough to hit the block yourself ...

dont forget that if you mine on the official granite pool - there are no fees and more bonuses ontop of the coin you mine ...

more updates soon ...

keep mining - smile lots - and have fun ...

Title: Re: Granite | Simple Solid Stable | GRN
Post by: chrysophylax on January 20, 2016, 03:17:16 AM

 Hi all, as the great reward is almost upon us I have a question. I'm not quite a fool, but I'm not wise in the ways of crypto and hashing either. I've been mining GRN with just my CPU and cgminger. It's really just a hit and miss deal from what I can tell. I get about one share at 55kh every three blocks or so. I really would like to work on the reward block, so can y'all offer any advise to improve my hashing before then? Thanks in advance.

I think you must buy several gpus. You can't compete with your cpu.

I think you must buy several gpus. You can't compete with your cpu.

as with most 'large' size aglos that are mined - x11 is usually the domain of gpu mining - and above ( there is rumour - though no real proof as yet of asics ) ...

you can continue to mine with cpu - but as logocreator mentioned - it will be difficult for a cpu to mine and make any real gains ...

the bonus block will hit somewhere - as there are those mining on the official pool ( including myself on http://grn-pool.granitecoin.com/ ) as well as other pools available like yiimp - and aikapool - and coinking to name a couple ...

steakcloud have implemented the mining via algo system - and i wanted to announce that once all testing was done - but i may as well now ...

http://pool.steakcloud.com/ will mine any algo they have available - and you can payout in granite if you have asics or gpu miners for the sha256 - scrypt - x11 algos ...

though form of mining will NOT hit the bonus block - as it does not mine directly ... it mines other coins in their algo list - and is traded to payout in granite ... this is a good thing for the granite ecosystem - as it means trading becomes more frequent and allows more people to access granite via other means of mining other than just mining x11 algo ...

as for you situation ... have a look at various cpu miners ( like the one i 'supposed' to be helping with - but keep running out of time ) that optimize the cpu mining as much as they can - but with the advent of gpu / asic mining - cpu mining x11 will yield the least coin for you processing power ...

if you have video cards available for mining - whether nvidia or amd - then we can talk a different lingo altogether ...

pm me your address and ill start you off with some grn that i can donate to you ...

have a great time mining ...

remember that grn-pool has NO fees - block finder BONUS - and pool BONUS as well ... so whenever anyone finds blocks on there - you will take a share of it also ... all paid through the pool fund ...

if you need links to a few of the miners - let us know which you will be mining with - and we can point you to some and help as best we can with them ...

my apologies for the lack of updates and lack of time - as im moving twice in the span of 8 weeks - starting yesterday ... so very little time to do much at all ...

but ill be back when ive settled at least a little in the next two weeks ...

i hope this helps ...

not far off from the bonus block ... someone is bound to hit it somewhere ... pool and solominer alike have good chances ...

Hi,
I have two amd64 compilation enviroments which have been capable to compile all the wallets this far but I'm facing connection issues in the wallet. Tried this with another computer and got stuck with same issue :/
Code:

error: couldn't connect to server

My config path is

Is the configuration file kind of correct? Removed the user credentials from the paste.

Tried also adding nodes on run but no success.
Might it be use of BDB5.3 cause that I'm unable to get connections when I compile latest source from dev's github? I've tried to compile with all USE_UPNP= modes 1,0,-.
I'm compiling granited amd64 and it drops some DB related errors, but bypasses them. The daemon itself initializes itself making wallet file and folders to datadir.
Some coins do have autotools so at configuration part before making I could put a --with-incompatible-bdb -parameter to get rid of BDB related errors in compilation, I tried to do own configure file with autotools but the configurations does not work out of the box and takes some time to finish it as a working one.
Any other solutions than using autotools? I'd like to compile my own wallets. The reason on Linux is because there's BDB and GLIBC library version differences and some wallets which are compiled as static and used in system which have other version of BDB than the wallet is compiled with and because of that the risk of wallet getting corrupt at random point is very high. I've faced it one time on production use and that made me learn. Also, on Windows especially because there is much trojans and similar in those. Third reason is I'd like to choose the version of OpenSSL because some wallets might have bugs.

Thanks in advance

hi bawaler ...

tanx for letting us know ...

the latest build is compiling but failing to run - as i have experienced this currently with a number of coins that ive been 'helping' with - and it seems now granite is affected by it ...

the latest update to boost and openssl and bdb as a combination are causing a database issue with the creation of the peers.dat file ... and even if you get to that level of file creation - the daemon ( or wallet ) crashes and goes no further ...

the debug.log will show exactly that issue ( tail -f ~/<user>/.GraniteCoin/debug.log ) - and we are working on it at the moment ... there seem to be a few changes that have been made to the updates of both boost and bdb in the latest versions which are causing this ... and we are trying to locate the affected areas in the granite code ...

again - this issue has been now seen in a few other coins also - and fixes have been looked at and we are working on getting the fix into the current code of granite at the moment ...

there is only a few blocks left to the last bonus block - where 100krgn will be minted in this one block - so if you are mining and hit the block on any of the pools - they can hold the coins until we can organize a fix ...

what linux are you using? ... maybe i can send you a precompiled wallet or daemon for the time being ... as this issue is a very recent one ( and one we were not expecting ) a workaround / fix will help - but we are already looking at a full rebase ( and have been planning on it for the last two months now ) to advance the codebase for granite for its future growth ...

i cannot see you have done wrong in your setup - in fact its a good setup :) ...

the only nodes you require are the three seednodes normally ( if you have the older version of the wallet - the seednodes are now hardcoded into the current codebase ) - they are currently running and fully functional ( and fast ) ...

tanx for bringing this to our attention - and we will come back with a fix soon ...

let me know if i can help you further ... as i do have other versions compiled ( ubuntu daemon - fedora 23 x64 qt5 wallet - centos 7 x64 static daemon ) that ARE functional at the moment ...

the debug.log will show exactly that issue ( tail -f ~/<user>/.GraniteCoin/debug.log ) - and we are working on it at the moment ... there seem to be a few changes that have been made to the updates of both boost and bdb in the latest versions which are causing this ... and we are trying to locate the affected areas in the granite code ...

again - this issue has been now seen in a few other coins also - and fixes have been looked at and we are working on getting the fix into the current code of granite at the moment ...

there is only a few blocks left to the last bonus block - where 100krgn will be minted in this one block - so if you are mining and hit the block on any of the pools - they can hold the coins until we can organize a fix ...

what linux are you using? ... maybe i can send you a precompiled wallet or daemon for the time being ... as this issue is a very recent one ( and one we were not expecting ) a workaround / fix will help - but we are already looking at a full rebase ( and have been planning on it for the last two months now ) to advance the codebase for granite for its future growth ...

i cannot see you have done wrong in your setup - in fact its a good setup :) ...

the only nodes you require are the three seednodes normally ( if you have the older version of the wallet - the seednodes are now hardcoded into the current codebase ) - they are currently running and fully functional ( and fast ) ...

tanx for bringing this to our attention - and we will come back with a fix soon ...

let me know if i can help you further ... as i do have other versions compiled ( ubuntu daemon - fedora 23 x64 qt5 wallet - centos 7 x64 static daemon ) that ARE functional at the moment ...

Thanks for a explanation,
I'll try to contact you at IRC soon, I'm running Debian 9 "stretch" x86_64, my BerkeleyDB is 5.3 and GLIBCXX version (libstdc++) is 3.4.21. At leats GLIBCXX version need to match, but it will run if the binary is compiled with BDB4.8/5.1, there's just the wallet file corruption risk around :/

yup - that confirms that its the older codebase ...

ill find a fix for it soon - in the middle of moving at the moment ...

since the updates - ive not been able to compile on fedora 23 x64 - and can only use the previous compile ...

will look at what can be fixed in it and come up with a solution very soon ...

Hi all, as the great reward is almost upon us I have a question. I'm not quite a fool, but I'm not wise in the ways of crypto and hashing either. I've been mining GRN with just my CPU and cgminger. It's really just a hit and miss deal from what I can tell. I get about one share at 55kh every three blocks or so. I really would like to work on the reward block, so can y'all offer any advise to improve my hashing before then? Thanks in advance.
I think you must buy several gpus. You can't compete with your cpu.

CPU mining with cgminer? I don't know what CPU you have but the best x11 CPU miner is this one https://github.com/elmad/darkcoin-cpuminer-1.3-avx-aes/releases

many tanx to yaamp and the wonderful work he has done with the new exchange ... and many tanx also for the addition of granite to safecex also ...

i have had little time to update here - but will do in the very near future ...

there have been a few changes - including safecex - that have happened with granite and some of these changes will be published fully - with the op updated to reflect the same ...

we have been on the voting list for cryptopia for a while ( as with ccex and a few others - including the ill fated cryptsy ) - but have not been pushing the marketing side very much ...

the reason for this is the complete rebase of granite - and what it will morph into ... as well as another addition to the granite family which is under negotiation currently ...

the website is actually being currently revamped and completely changed on a structural level - with a few features we think will bring a great deal of use from it - including the integration of the official granite pool WITHIN the website itself - not just a hyperlink to the pool ...

a lot has been happening on the personal side of life also - and those are slowly being resolved also ...

good things take time - and granite will show that for the moment - time will be good to granite also ...

ill be back and more indepth soon ...

tanx guys ...

tanx for your kind words and for the interest you are showing ...

its a pleasure to know that solid members of the crypto community have such good things to say ...

there is a lot going on in the background - and as i dont publish too much about ifs maybes and 'roadmap' - it does look like the project is at a little standstill ... it was for a couple of weeks through christmas and new years and january - as i had to personally do a smaller move and preparing for a much larger move in 4weeks time ...

but i can assure you i am now not the only one working in the background on granite ... in fact there are three of us that are firmly planted in getting a lot done - with others that are contracted in to do their part ...

there is a compilation issue currently that has stumped me i have to admit - and that will be fixed shortly as soon as i can find why granite daemon suddenly crashes after compilation ... this doesnt happen for all compiles - just a few select ones ...

we know bdb and boost have been updated in most os systems - and gcc has had an upgrade as well ... so we are looking into the code to see what it is that could be clashing with the new updates ...

apart from that - the new website is finished at its base - has most of the items in place - and will be published when they are all done ... ( if you would like a sneak preview and test of the site - please pm ... only a few will be able to at any one time for the moment ) ...

the new layout is better than the old ...
the new structure will mean a much easier process for updates and addons ...
theforum will start to be used more often as means of communication ...
the integration ( not a hyperlink to another site ) of the official granite pool inside the website means access to mining without leaving the site ...
the new shopping module added and working well ...
the shopping system requires a backend payment processor for granite and btc and aud - as well as the currently available usd and eu ...

the rebase of the granite code to a granitenode ( masternode / PoS ) system is heavily debated ... and may go ahead of schedule if it can be decided as to how much benefit we will be able to retain from such a system ... especially with the current issue of compilation - the rebase is being considered even more intently ...

options and inclusions for integration into the wallet - including bleutrade and safecex trading ( as we are now on two exchanges currently ) are currently being setup ... as well as a few other ideas and integration which are just on paper at the moment ( so id rather not say anything about them until i can be sure we can get them done ) ... hence why there is no 'roadmap' or promises ... just 'stuff getting done' ..

thefarm will also play a part in the granite ecosystem - which means mining will become a major part of granite ... after all i started as a miner first and foremost - and this is a miners coin ...

thefarm will also play a large part in the granitefund ... a place where btc and granite can be help for expenses and purchases ... whether they be to pay devs or contractors or marketing or otherwise ...

we are now mined on a few different pools currently ( such as hashpower - yiimp to name a couple ) with a few waiting for the code fix to compile ( zpool - miningpoolhub to name a couple also ) ...

and if you have other miners that you want to set to mining other than a gpu ( such as an asic or fpga that does sha256 and scrypt ) the steakcloud has implemented granite as a payout coin - using any of the three big algos they have currently avalable - sha256 scrypt x11 ... http://pool.steakcloud.com/ ...

there are discussions for another coin to join the ecosystem - but negotiations are only just being done ... this is ongoing for the moment and will be finalized when we can agree on the terms - and it seems its going well for the time being ...

as for co-operation between crypto - im an advocate of that premise in a massive way ... currently working alongside the dev of droidz to fix the issue droidz have just had - supporting and helping evergreencoin ( evergreencoindev - steven saxton ) in backend infrastructure with seednodes - as with mastertradercoin ( mastertrader777 ) and bitstone ( bitstonedev ) in the same ... their core seednodes are also part of our granite infrastructure ( and some have hardcoded our seednodes into the core code ) as granite continues to support more in the future using its infrastructure ...

it makes me a very happy man to have the likes of respectable community members such as yourselves and others as my peers ... during the course of this year - we will bring out all that we have been working on in stages ... stages of completion - as soon as its complete - its published :) ... as no part of the development relies on any other except for the core daemon ...

once again - tanx for the positive feedback ...

hi all ...

tanx again for your kind words ...

i really do appreciate them ... and you say these things even though i can be abrupt and forward - which is sometimes construed as being rude ...

an update to the compilation issue ...

this seems to have been fixed - and is currently being tested in the granite test server - which will then roll out to the production environment soon after ...

so far so good ...

ive built two daemons with differing settings ( early and later boost versions and early and later bdb versions using openssl 1.0.2f with both ) and all seems well ...

i compile static builds for the daemons - under centos 7 x64 - as all the vps systems and servers are based on centos 7 x64 ... this 'should mean - that other os systems like ubuntu - should not have any issues building dynamically ...

the two pools that have been waiting for the fix will now be notified for addition - miningpoolhub ( https://miningpoolhub.com/index.php ) and zpool ( http://www.zpool.ca/ ) - and the current pools and exchanges will be notified over the course of the next few days of the fix also ( yiimp - hashpower - coinking - and steakcloud ) ... though there really is no need to upgrade and rebuild as a mandatory upgrade - unless you want the current code fixes with it also ...

the official seednodes are all uptodate and ready to take on the blockchain servicing - so that too should give you immediate and very quick blockchain sync ...

further ...

tanx to our new honorary granite team member soopy452000 - the fix was implemented a few hours ago ...

soopy and i have been working closely together on a few matters - especially granite ( and currently droidz ) - and has been instrumental in the redevelopment and updates in the core of granite ...

an update will be forthcoming - as will the op update ( which needs a full redesign - getting too messy ) - explaining all that needs to be updated ...

tanx for you patience ...

any ideas on how to increase market value for granite?

yes - many ideas fastlan ...

but due to my work in the background on granite ( and other coins currently ) i have not published a few things that are being done right now ...

as always - i dont like the 'talk' and would rather the 'do' and then 'show' ...

the drawback of this is that many people dont realize that granite is in progression and will be for the next year ... moving forward all the time ...

your ideas and the communities ideas are ALWAYS welcome ...

many changes are coming - they will just take a little bit of time ... but i can guarantee that this year - a lot of changes and plans that have been on the drawing board have now been implemented ...

i just hope i can get the op redone in a better fashion - so its more readable and not so messy ... and will continue to update as changes come in ... progression is slow but very steady ... which has always been the core of the stability of the granite ecosystem ... organic growth ...

jonesd - are you still interested in helping with the new op? ...

tanx for the addition into zpool crackfoo ...

it is much appreciated ...

i am in the process of a full takeover of a coin that has tech im interested in - which im planning to compliment the granite portfolio ...

this coin will be part of the granite family - though when the takeover is finalized - will be worked from the ground up to become a part of the granite ecosystem ...

negotiations will be finalized this week im hoping ... when this does so - would you be interested in adding this coin to zpool also? ...

its x11 based as well ... and so far - is a PoW coin ...

more details coming shortly ...

I do not know to what degree or how long ago but, judging by the poll question, "if you were able to mine granite using any number of algorithms - not just x11 - which ones would they be?", I would say they have been considering.

Perhaps the x11 asic's (http://cryptomining-blog.com/tag/x11-asic/) that are coming to the market might give this more urgency than before. Maybe a longer standing community member or surly a dev has more and/or better insight to this than I. I am sure they will chime in and shed some better light on the question.

Just put in a request to have this coin added to 1ex.trade, hopefully they can squeeze it in with V2 next month.

You too can send a request  8)

have you ever thought about changing algos?

yes fastlan ...

the consideration has been out there for a while now - long before the public announcement of the asic x11 miners ...

initially - i leaned towards quark ... and the poll on this thread backed that ...

BUT - as quark is another algo that will be on the list for asics ( which is fine - but not quite yet ) - discussions have been put forward about what algo would be a good algo to mine for granite as was lyra2v2 ...

also taking into account that this 'other coin' that we are adopting is also a PoW x11 coin ... which we may change algo also ...

discussions on the official irc channel #granite - are always taking place ... but the discussions that have been had about the algo - and wolf sharing his experience and advice also on the matter - as well as his thoughts - it seems the best thing is to consider using and algo that can be pursued by fpga and asic in the future - but not right this minute ...

this is why i suggested a 'new' algo - or at least a change of an existing one ...

any ideas and advice and thoughts would be great ... as there is nothing set in concrete ...

for the time being - if you do have an asic or fpga that mines sha256 or scrypt ( or anything that mines x11 ) - head on over to steakcloud ( http://pool.steakcloud.com/ ) and mine granite on there using those algos ...

just use a 7 infront of your grn address as the username and use any password ( the 7 is required to denote grn and NOT confuse the pool with any other coin ) - and point the miner to the relevant address / port located here - http://pool.steakcloud.com/getting_started ...

easy ...

so it has mate ...

and tanx for supporting the granite community by mining and joining ...

there really isnt a great deal of urgency - though it has accelerated the think tanks somewhat ...

there is much to be said about help coming from all corners of the crypto world - so much tanx for your input ...

great suggestion ...

i looked at this algo a while back - as its a twist on quark ( and as most know that quark is one of my fav algos alongside x11 ... if you didnt know - you do now :P ) ...

the only positive i would see to go to a non standard algo ( apart from being 'different' ) - is that people could mine it without issue ...

so a miner would have to be available for both nvidia and amd ...

with thefarm running ccminer-spmod and ccminer-tpruvot and farmamd running sgminer-wolf ( mainly ) - we would have to make sure that it would be an algo that could be adopted and implemented easily with those miners ...

apart from that - its a good call ...

tanx ...

Is the other coin being added to the 'ecosystem' An already existing one?  

yup ...

the takeover will be finalized next week when the dev gets back from holidays ...

its an existing coin - 'dead' in respects to the activity - but has tech that ive been looking at that will supplement the granite ecosystem ...

when the takeover is finalized - ill publish what it is ...

funnily enough - the dev is australian also - and an awesome bloke ... ;) ...

i currently have a few ideas for it - and how i wanted to work it with the changes to be made to it ...

but that wont happen until the new website is in place ( which is almost finished ) for granite - and some other smaller loose ends tied ...

granite is the main focus as always - but i feel this other coin has a place beside it also ... ive been working on another coin ( call it coin2 for now ) for quite a while - but that is a sticky situation with the others involved - so that will take it time until a full takeover can be done on that one ... im not holding my breath on coin2 though - as its dev is an absolute ass who has driven the coin to oblivion ... but it too has soem tech im interested in ...

anyway - LOTS happening with granite ... not just the coin ;) ...

ive been planning on using theforum more often also - and i think now is the time to start really getting the granite forum some good use ...

I have an outstanding Idea for a coin/app that would fit right into Australia, US, UK as a saleable system to a certain industry

It's not one that is listed on exchanges but uses the blockchain wallet tech, on an in-house private blockchain...

Just have to register it's name did the copyright shit by emailing the plans to myself, just haven't had time to develop idea. find people to handle the tech side.

having said that everyone has a great coin Idea.. lol

well ...

coin1 - the takeover coin ... that is sitting doing nothing at the moment - so i hope the takeover will be finalized next week so that i can start work on it ...

coin2 - is on exchanges and is trading still - but has a dev that has head so far up his backside that he doesnt know a good thing when its in front of him ... he has tried to kill the coin twice - and now has caused a LOT of issues by dumping coin - AND - running off with the communitys btc invested in it ... and ive found he has done this with a few coins now - so he is up by at least 250btc of community invested funds ... and thats of the coins i know of ...

putting it plainly - the dev of coin2 is an absolute bumhole ...

and im actually being nice about him ...

but i cant do too much about coin2 unless i have some backing - and there is no one that will ( help me ) back a coin that i dont have full control over ... which is what im working on now ...

History

The Free State Project was founded in 2001 by Jason Sorens, then a Ph.D. student at Yale University. Sorens published an article in The Libertarian Enterprise highlighting the failure of libertarians to elect any candidate to federal office and outlining his ideas for a secessionist movement, calling people to respond to him with interest. Sorens has stated that the movement continues an American tradition of political migration, which includes groups such as Mormon settlers in Utah, and Amish religious communities, as well as "Jamestown Seventy", an earlier effort to influence the politics of a particular state through deliberate migration.


The flag of the Free State Project, a modified Gadsden flag
The organization began without a specific state in mind. A systematic review started by narrowing potential states to those with a population of less than 1.5 million, and those where the combined spending in 2000 by the Democratic and Republican parties was less than $5.2 million, the total national spending by the Libertarian Party in that year. Hawaii and Rhode Island were eliminated from this list because of their propensity for centralized government.

State selection
In September 2003 the state vote was held. Participants voted using the Condorcet method to choose the state. New Hampshire was the winner, with Wyoming coming in second by a 57% to 43% margin. Alaska, Delaware, Idaho, Maine, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Vermont were also on the list.

New Hampshire was chosen because the perceived individualist culture of the state was thought to resonate well with libertarian ideals. The Free State Project, however, has drawn criticism from some New Hampshire residents concerned about population pressure and opposition to increased taxation. Some Republicans, on the other hand, have responded more favorably to the project, because of their espoused agreement on small government.

you mean because we share the same name - granite? ...

so they would possibly use granite as a donation coin? ...

Just stopping for a quick hello.. Chrysophylax is a awesome dev and he's got my support with granite ;)

tanx for your kind words ...

in fact - i cannot believe all the nice sentiments you all have given ... not only to myself - but to the project and the small steps we are taking to getting granite to the level that it deserves to be ...

the help that has been given - from ideas to actual coding - have been a HUGE help also ... and for that i give tanx also ...

tomorrow - i will put together an update that will explain and also inform you of some of the things that have been moving - and going on in the background ...

i have been busy with much more than just 'some things' - both with granite and other coins ( just finalized droidz swap with the awesome dev soopy - alongside the 'foundation' of the droidz project greedyjohn ) - and so am a little flustered with all the happenings of the crypto scene ... but i have also had MANY things going on in my personal life as will be explained tomorrow ...

so bed time for now - and tomorrow a new start ...

nite all ...

Post by: chrysophylax on March 18, 2016, 04:09:51 AM
hi all ...

an update is long over due - and as some of you have noticed - i have been around but not so much in the area that i really need to be ... here - on my own projects ...

we have been busy here at granite though - so much so that a complete update will bore you to tears ... so im thinking that a list of some of the things we have been working on will suffice - with a full update a little later ... or a complete overhaul of the op so that an update wont be necessary and all the information you will require will be there at a glance ...

the main issue i have at the moment is time - as im moving for the second time ( moving this week ) then in a little over a week time - thefarm will be dismantled and moved also ... though the issue is that i have no idea where its going to go ... we havent found a place for thefarm to live yet ... im way too picky with it currently - as the next move we make for the farm will be a longer term one ... and it may not necessarily be here in australia ... hence the delay ...

so here a small list of the things that have taken me away from this thread all this time ...


personal ( crysx ) ...

- physical move 2weeks ago to the office ...
- physical move in 2weeks to house ( personal - on 28th march 2016 ) ...
- physical preparation for the abovementioned AND preparation for thefarm dismantling and packing ...
- selling of excess furniture and equipment ...
- selling of car ...
- packing of excess equipment and stock ...
- rebuild of systems and network since power outage - then power spike right after - killing some of the systems and forcing rebuild of a few miners and main server ...
- back up of data - then replacement of parts - with backup recopied currently in progress ...


granite ( chrysophylax - skaia - soopy - others ( contracted ) ) ...

- clean up of code for recompile ( complete rebuild of leveldb ) ...
- setup and compiled 4 new nodes - making a total of 7 FULL seednodes ...
- hardcoded all 7 seednodes in wallet / code ...
- recompiled all seednodes to the latest code to activate 7 full seednode lookup ( dns lookup - not just ip ) ...
- purchased new equipment for the server ( larger hdd's - external backup storage - and more ) - for backing up all granite wallets - config - blockchains - system data ( including other coin wallets - more about that later ) ...
- support for other crypto currencies that i ( crysx ) have not only been interested in - but also invested - by means of seednodes and buy support and code changes to the coins ...
- deal done with isp for upcoming project and permanent vps systems for granite infrastructure ... want to set up a node? ... will be dead simple when this is sorted ...
- attending ( if only on face value as we will not be personally attending unfortunately ) the coinfestuk symposium with details and giveaways and more ...
- the takeover of a coin that will be integrated into the granite ecosystem is being finalized in the next week ... we prefer not to really say 'takeover' but rather 'adopt' ... details will be published when its integrated and completely 'adopted' ...


still to be done ...

- finalizing the naming convention of granite ( completely off the 'GraniteCoin' name ) within the code structure ...
- the merger of the dbm system ( donation by mining - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1089744 ) into the granite ecosystem is underway ...
- complete rebase of wallet and features ...
- produce latest wallets ( windows - osx - linux ) and start on android and ios wallets ...
- introducing the donation system through the exchange pool for multi algo mining to granite for payment to devs using granite ( grn ) ...
- setup devs granite donation wallets ...
- setup of granitefund ...
- complete new op - with lanuages ( currently we have greek - spanish - chinese - which all need to be updated now ) to be published ...
- finalizing look and structure of the new website and features ... this includes the integration of the official granite pool - the integration of bleutrade exchange ( https://bleutrade.com/exchange/GRN/BTC/ ) - the integration of safecex exchange ( https://safecex.com/market?q=GRN/BTC/ ) - WITHIN the website itself ...
- the shopping system is currently working but is disabled until we can finalize the backend payment processor for grn / usd / eu / aud currencies ... yes - you do not see btc here - yet ... one step at a time ;) ...


we are also sourcing various stock items and products for the shopping system from previous and current providers and suppliers we used to deal with ... for those of you that didnt know - my partner and i have been in the retail industry ( her focussed on general retail and fashion - me focused on IT and gaming and wholesale computer products ) for many years and had a small chain of retail stores in sydney a few years ago ... this means i still have a great many contacts in the various industries including ( but not limited to ) computers - computer components - computer / communications cabling and connectors - clothing ( kids and adult ) - jewelery ( non gem-stone ) - interior furnishings / beautification such as wall hangings and paintings - and so much more ...

there is so much more to add here that its impossible to conjure a list of the total amount of things that have been worked on ... not to mention the outdated op ... i really would like to simplify that - if anyone can lend a hand ( @jonesd - does you offer still stand? )...

i do need to make mention that thefarm is getting a complete overhaul - which includes a new place of residence for it ... not only to cater for its future growth - but also to allow a better setting and premises for thefarm to work in ...

thefarm mining systems themselves are being rebuilt again - with better / faster components ...
thefarm software management system is currently getting a complete overhaul ...
thefarm structure is completely changing in the sense that thefarm will soon be running as a grid network - which will simply be called 'thegrid' ...

thegrid will comprise of a mastersystem ( granite masternode ) for control and rollout of all the slavesystems ( granite mining systems ) ...
thegrid structure will allow for ONE compile of ONE miner rolled out to ALL slaves at the same time ...
thegrid structure will allow for the complete rebuild of one or many slaves at the same time - from OS to mining software - and mining within 7minutes from barebones ...
thegrid will be able to add or remove miners at will - and the granite masternode system can support upto 254 slaves under its control ...
thegrid slaves each currently consist of 6 x gigabyte 750ti oc lp cards - but will be upgraded to gigabyte 980ti extreme cards shortly ...

thegrid is the infrastructure and control system for thefarm ...

now we just need a place to put it all - and we have been on the lookout for a small enclosed warehouse just for that purpose ... still yet to find a suitable premises - but will be up and running as soon as one is found ...

ill be offline for the length of time it takes to move personally and get the internet connection running in the new premises my partner and i will call 'home' for the next year or so ...

so please be patient with the knowledge that there has always been constant work in the background ... with successes ( as well as some failures ) that keep granite the solid and stable ecosystem it has become ... with all the infrastructure and ongoing developments currently being taken on ... as complex as they may sound - this complexity in the backend will make granite a simple coin and simple 'tool' to use for the everyday in the 'frontend' on computer or mobile device ...

we have been hard at work with little rest - to bring together an ecosystem that will be easy to use and functional with as little fuss as possible ... simple ...

simple - solid - stable ...

granite ...

there are a few more details ive left out - some of which really have no context here as they are just planned and not actually 'in process of production' ... where as what has been listed are items that have already completed AND items already underway / under development ... id rather 'show' and deliver than 'roadmap' and promise ...

if you want a preview of the website in its current state - i can supply you personally the url - but it is not to be shared freely ... just so you get an idea of what work has been put in to 'just' the website - let alone the rest of the infrastructure and wallet ...

the naming convention ... the coin was taken over a while back and was called 'GraniteCoin' and had all the conditions of that name in all the segments of the code ... the name 'granite' ( notice no CAPS as well ) has been the name for a while now - but portions of the code have not been changed - such as the 'GraniteCoin.conf' file for example ... the new code will reflect all these changes and will require the .conf ( if the .conf is needed for those who want to solo mine or setup a node ) to be changed to granite.conf ... currently - even with the major name change - the old naming convention of GraniteCoin is still required - which also includes the subdirectories involved - for example ~/.GraniteCoin/GraniteCoin.conf ( in linux ) ... this will all change very soon ... though we cant do too much in the way of the domain - as my mate cannot register 'granite.com' as it has not been ( and probably will not be ) available for quite sometime ... so we will be sticking with granitecoin.com for the foreseeable future ...

as for the aussiecentric market ... this is where the the shopping system becomes a twofold system ...

first - it will be based here in adelaide for the time being but - depending on success - will have the main headquarters in sydney ( as im from sydney originally - and my mate there can handle all that side of the setup for me ( as he already handles all the domains currently anyway ) ) ...

second - being based here in adelaide is quite limiting ... if you know anything about adelaide - you will know what im talking about - so i wont go into detail ... lets just accept that this little sleepy town of drivers that have no idea of road rules and are at least 40years behind the rest of australia in technology - is exactly what i have described - quite limiting ... just to clarify - its a beautiful place to see and visit with very nice people - but dont expect anything to happen in any hurry here - actually to happen ever ;) ... so insofaras relocation to sydney - this will open up the granite shopping system to a much better and open shipping channel - and allow for us to re-open the supplier channels we once had ... making granite shopping more of a worldwide enterprise ...

such products as food and gemstones and metals ( especially precious gemstones and precious metals ) are a system unto their own ... we need to look very intricately at the licensing and laws that surround such sales - and being in australia - you would know that this government we have is very strict on what we are 'allowed' to do and what we are not 'allowed' to do ... so it may be an avenue we can take - but for the moment - its not one we are willing to 'risk' unless the system was based in a country that had more relaxed laws ... australian charges / fees are one of the highest in the world for electricity and water and most utilities - so i am not expecting it would be any different when it comes to the fees of other items ...

as for buying granite - bleutrade have always been good with us ... though recently they have just been ignoring our requests to change the name and upgrade the daemon to the latest ... safecex seems to have some people dropping their grn coins for sale - and is run by yaamp ( the dev of the previous yaamp mining pool ) ... im keeping an eye out for some cheap buys also - as i never have enough in my bag ...

the op - well what can i say ... i need help with it :) ...

and as ive mentioned earlier ... 2016 is the year granite will grow and evolve - with changes constantly happening ...

tanx for keeping tabs on granite ...

second - being based here in adelaide is quite limiting ... if you know anything about adelaide - you will know what im talking about - so i wont go into detail ... lets just accept that this little sleepy town of drivers that have no idea of road rules and are at least 40years behind the rest of australia in technology - is exactly what i have described - quite limiting ... just to clarify - its a beautiful place to see and visit with very nice people - but dont expect anything to happen in any hurry here - actually to happen ever ;) ... so insofaras relocation to sydney - this will open up the granite shopping system to a much better and open shipping channel - and allow for us to re-open the supplier channels we once had ... making granite shopping more of a worldwide enterprise ...

such products as food and gemstones and metals ( especially precious gemstones and precious metals ) are a system unto their own ... we need to look very intricately at the licensing and laws that surround such sales - and being in australia - you would know that this government we have is very strict on what we are 'allowed' to do and what we are not 'allowed' to do ... so it may be an avenue we can take - but for the moment - its not one we are willing to 'risk' unless the system was based in a country that had more relaxed laws ... australian charges / fees are one of the highest in the world for electricity and water and most utilities - so i am not expecting it would be any different when it comes to the fees of other items ...

as for buying granite - bleutrade have always been good with us ... though recently they have just been ignoring our requests to change the name and upgrade the daemon to the latest ... safecex seems to have some people dropping their grn coins for sale - and is run by yaamp ( the dev of the previous yaamp mining pool ) ... im keeping an eye out for some cheap buys also - as i never have enough in my bag ...

the op - well what can i say ... i need help with it :) ...

and as ive mentioned earlier ... 2016 is the year granite will grow and evolve - with changes constantly happening ...

tanx for keeping tabs on granite ...

WOW, that is epic!!

An Aussie centric marketplace would be great!!

I would buy or sell silver on it!!

What does

- finalizing the naming convention of granite ( completely off the 'GraniteCoin' name ) within the code structure ...

Mean?

To much to take in, but to me it just says to buy!!

If only I could get people to sell on Bleu :-[


there are a few more details ive left out - some of which really have no context here as they are just planned and not actually 'in process of production' ... where as what has been listed are items that have already completed AND items already underway / under development ... id rather 'show' and deliver than 'roadmap' and promise ...

if you want a preview of the website in its current state - i can supply you personally the url - but it is not to be shared freely ... just so you get an idea of what work has been put in to 'just' the website - let alone the rest of the infrastructure and wallet ...

the naming convention ... the coin was taken over a while back and was called 'GraniteCoin' and had all the conditions of that name in all the segments of the code ... the name 'granite' ( notice no CAPS as well ) has been the name for a while now - but portions of the code have not been changed - such as the 'GraniteCoin.conf' file for example ... the new code will reflect all these changes and will require the .conf ( if the .conf is needed for those who want to solo mine or setup a node ) to be changed to granite.conf ... currently - even with the major name change - the old naming convention of GraniteCoin is still required - which also includes the subdirectories involved - for example ~/.GraniteCoin/GraniteCoin.conf ( in linux ) ... this will all change very soon ... though we cant do too much in the way of the domain - as my mate cannot register 'granite.com' as it has not been ( and probably will not be ) available for quite sometime ... so we will be sticking with granitecoin.com for the foreseeable future ...

as for the aussiecentric market ... this is where the the shopping system becomes a twofold system ...

first - it will be based here in adelaide for the time being but - depending on success - will have the main headquarters in sydney ( as im from sydney originally - and my mate there can handle all that side of the setup for me ( as he already handles all the domains currently anyway ) ) ...

what was that? ... crapala... i mean ... slowalaid... i mean ... o never mind ...

neodium magnets are the old school tech for the old meters ... adelaide isnt THAT far behind - they know how to get their money ... this government have upgraded all the meters to the new system ... all electronic - all untouchable unless you know someone in parliament ;) ...

and even if you knew how to 'tesla' the system - there would be no way you would let anyone know about it - unless you want to be 'disappeared' by the corporations ...

ill pm you the link for the new website - and be sure to checkout the 'more' menu item ;) ... the shopping system is disabled even on the dev version of the website ...

the granite site will go live next week anyway - but what you will see is pretty much what it will be ... with different links and item changes of course ...

as for buying - well thats entirely up to you ... who knows ... im all about the ecosystem - and price will follow if its something that is usable for the people ...

im off for two days now - starting this move - so will be back on sunday night and back here monday morning stuck into work again ...

Hi,

I've set up a pool for GRN.
No registration required.
I've confirmed that payouts works, please be patient to wait for block maturing.

http://louhimo.club/ (http://louhimo.club/)

To start mining:

Connection address: stratum+tcp://louhimo.club:8011
Username: Your GRN wallet address
Password: anything, or if want to set difficulty manually, use d=0.008 as a worker password for example.

Happy mining!

glad to see you are around aika ...

i messaged you a very long time ago ( a couple of times ) for the change of logo and change of name for your pool also ...

so that would be appreciated if you would get that sorted ... ive always mined at your pools - since the very beginning of granite ...

the seednodes are all dns based now ( or you can extract their ip if you like ) ... in order to cope with the demand that is about to happen - ive added another for FULL seednodes making a 7 FULL seednodes hardcoded in the latest daemon ... so if you want to recompile the latest daemon from git - it will have all seednodes hardcoded for you - without the need to add to the .conf ... and its only a daemon change with no need to download the blockchain again - unless you wanted a clean download of the blockchain as it should only take a couple of hours for a 'standard' wallet to download ... it may be a whole day or longer if you are refreshing the wallet of a long term pool like your pool or ours though ...

official granite git here - https://github.com/chrysophylax69/granite ...

but below is all you need to add to the conf if thats the way you want to go ...

Code:
addnode=seednode1.granitecoin.com
addnode=seednode2.granitecoin.com
addnode=seednode3.granitecoin.com
addnode=seednode4.granitecoin.com
addnode=seednode5.granitecoin.com
addnode=seednode6.granitecoin.com
addnode=seednode7.granitecoin.com

now some of you will see that the block chain has been at a standstill also ...

there is ONE reason why - multipool ... someone threw a little over 3.04gh ( yes - thats GIGAHASH ) of x11 hashpower at the network pushing the difficulty skyhigh ... this continued for a few hours ... which means that the small amount hashrate that it was ( about 52mh at the time ) will take a while before it can move the blockchain once again ... the last block was hit about two hours ago - but that seemed to drive the diff from 999 to 1332 currently ...

being digishield - the network it will adjust difficulty the very next block it hits ... but at this difficulty - it may take a while unless some more major hash comes into the next work ...

so keep mining - at the network will stabilize until the next wave ...

apart from that - someone has purchased about 8.8btc worth of granite on safecex pushing the price on that exchange to over 40ksat ... thats just nuts ... due to bleutrade being down at the time - there was no other place to purchase grn - so i guess there wasnt much choice for those that wanted to buy ...

ive come back from two days to start the move ... will be here the rest of the week organizing for the completion of the move on the 28th of march 2016 ( next monday ) ... it will take me about a week to settle - then i will be working again on a regular and stable level here ...

there is so much to do the next 7 days - so i wont be online too much - but will pop in where i can ...

aika - please update to the latest daemon and logo and name change ... its stops confusion with the pools and allows me to update the op ( when it it gets done ) with the pools that are correct with all info ...

much appreciated ...

Changed!  ;)

Why such big difficulty?

tanx ...

read back a few posts and it will explain the reason ...

but basically - someone with big hash ( or a multipool with big hash ) decided it was a good thing to mine with over 3gh - when the network was at less than 100mh ... this pushed the diff through the roof to a max of 1332 ( though it stayed at 999 for a while ) ...

while at the same time a massive purchase of granite was made on safecex ( due to bleutrade being offline at the time - so safecex was the only exchange with granite ) of 8.8btc - pushing the price through the roof also - to over 40ksat ...

so its still settling at the moment with the 'normal' hashrate that the network 'normally' has ...

its taken a little over 48hours at the moment to get to here - so if this happens again - we will be looking at changing the difficulty algorithm ( when the rebase is done ) from digishield to something else ( maybe kimoto gravity well ( kgw) ) - along with the algorithm if that is deemed to be a good thing also ... this will mean it will require a hardfork - but for the better ...

the ideas are still being thrown around - and im in the middle of a move which wont be finalized till the 28th of this month ... so a week to settle after that and ill be back on track with granite ( and the other coin thats been almost finalized ) ... hopefully news on that thread will come first before here - as to which coin that is ...

its funny that you also have a pool for 'that' coin also ( hint hint ) ... ;) ...

tanx again aika ...

hi all ...

the finalization of the adoption of the 'other' coin has come around - and we are in the process of building the infratsructure within the granite ecosystem for it ...

the coin is an australian born and developed coin - ozziecoin ...

initially a good reception with some great ideas - the developer now has focused on many other things in life and cannot continue with the development ... and so we have negotiated to adopt ozziecoin and make it part of the family - and help resurrect activity as well as trading ( which is currently on yobit ) and development in the very near future ...

the post and my addition to the post on the ozziecoin thread is here - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=578881.msg14278878#msg14278878 ...

we will be putting things on hold for a very short time - as i cant do much at the moment with grn or ozc currently - due to the process of moving / relocation personally and for thefarm ... but in the coming weeks i shall be back working diligently on the development of both coins ( alongside skaia and soopy - and others involved ) and we will complete the adoption of ozziecoin and start the redevelopment ... as well as the rebuild and structure and development of thefarm ( and thegrid ) ...

ozziecoin will remain as it is for the time being - with plans for ozziecoins future being formulated and developed in the coming weeks ... while ozc has been sitting for trade on yobit for some time - we hope thats its future development will stimulate trade - and for those that have been mining ( and holding ) ozc all this time - keeps the coins handy as we will be working bringing the coin back in the coming weeks ...

all in all - a huge tanx for the dev of ozziecoin for the huge amount of help he has already given ...

now for the move - then to settle down - then the REAL work on both granite and ozziecoin to start ...

i cant wait ;) ...

it's funny you say that because after you said that new coin was on Aika pool
I looked through them to suss it out and looked at OZC 
 ???  ???  ???
is this really the one with 4 pages of BCT in 2 years?
And no comments for over 6 months?

Why not just create one from scratch?

are your marbles missing?

or am I missing something  :o

no - no marbles missing - or you missing anything ...

i liked the coin from the beginning - but it had a few things i was interested in also ... namely the database and the tech that underlies the code ...

its an early adoption of the blackcoin code from what i can see ... but i will look more in depth when i settle down in the new place ...

it is easy to start a new coin - i agree - but why would i if there is a coin that has 'some' history and a database to match ...

the original dev has had NO time for the development OR the maintenance of the thread or the coin or the infrastructure ... so its no issue to adopt it and take it under our wing to redevelop ...

there are a number of ideas that i have for ozc - its just a matter of changing it to do what needs to be done - so that it can compliment granite - and work in tandem ...

a little patience - and you will see ... i dont things off the cuff ... there is always a good reason ...

I believe you, should be good to see, did the distribution go to plan?

Edit. I have done more reading on it does have some good features.

Shame about the premine (despite it's use)

User database is valuable, (fools)

seems to be a good response on price as well.  ;D


Also Granite Blockchain appears to be down, No block explorer found when I am trying to sync.

Also Granite Blockchain appears to be down, No block explorer found when I am trying to sync.

ozziecoin does have some good features - and we will be looking more into what can be done with not only the coins - but the database - the further distribution - and the mining ... after all - it can still be mined easily and ozc is like granite in algo using x11 ...

that may change in the future - but for the time being - its all about stability for the coin and rebuilding the ecosystem - before any form of work for rebuild and / or rebranding is to take place ... if at all ...

as for the granite blockchain - its fully functional mate ... hasnt gone down at all - and ALL seednodes ( from 1- 7 ) are all fully functional and have been since updatying a few weeks ago ...

which wallet are you using? ... if its from the op - its the older one ( yes - the op is out of date and will be updated in the coming weeks also ) ...

if it is the older - then you will need to add the seednodes into the GraniteCoin.conf ( also using the older name currently ) in the windows or linux hidden directories ...

Code:
addnode=seednode1.granitecoin.com
addnode=seednode2.granitecoin.com
addnode=seednode3.granitecoin.com
addnode=seednode4.granitecoin.com
addnode=seednode5.granitecoin.com
addnode=seednode6.granitecoin.com
addnode=seednode7.granitecoin.com

if you have compiled the wallet from the current git - there will be no need to add these seeds to the .conf - as they are all hardcoded in the new wallet ...

we will be bringing out the windows wallets and osx wallets as soon as they are compiled from the new code ...

let me know how it goes ...

btw - ill be away for another two days ( moving more 'stuff' to the new place ) and will be back either tomorrow afternoon or friday ... as of 28th of march - ill be offline for a few days while the move gets finalized on the 28th and unpacking ( yay - fun - NOT! ) and settling in gets underway ...

the hunt for a new place for thefarm will be started after that - as well as work on the coins ...

i have 30 new packing boxes being delivered and arriving in the next 30mins - so a lot of physical work with this move unfortunately ...

back in a couple of days at most ...

hi all ...

chrysophylax here ...

im messaging from this 'newbie' account 'crysx' because i have tried to log in to bct from the new premises - and failed miserably ...

due to my computer being a linux machine AND being fully encrypted AND having a password wallet that is fully encrypted - i only ever really need to know a few passwrds ( 16 in all ) ... one of the passwords ( and details as i later found out - due to the questions that bct ask for verification ) i did not alott to memory were those conatined in the personal encrypted wallet ... one of those was bitcointalk password and details ...

yesterday - i tried to log in unsucessfully with the wrong password ... the password is 3 years old - which as long as ive had the chrysophylax profile ... it also has made more than 3000posts and is a hero member - about to go to legendary in the coming weeks / months ... now before any of you carryo on about changing passwords regularly and all that - i agree and am totally devoted to changing 'simplistic' passwords ... not ones that require brute force with decryption algorithms and a farm of hash to crack the passwords ... so to move on with the story ...

more than all that - the chrysophylax profile is also is the authority profile for the granite thread AND the dbm thread ( the two projects i currenty have ) and was about to take control of the other coin we have just adopted - ozziecoin ...

when the unsuccessful attempt to log in was tried three times - i attempted to change passwords via email ...

the email was sent from bct to my email address - and i followed the instructions to the 'change password' link - only to have them as a private question - which i have forgotten the answer to also ...

i didnt think that was much of an issue - except that as soon as the submit button was clicked - i receieved the following message ...

Code:
An Error Has Occurred!

Sorry chrysophylax, you are banned from using this forum!
For security, your account has been locked. Email acctcomp15@theymos.e4ward.com

now this shows three things ...

1 - the security measures that bct have in place are brief and not very descriptive ...
2 - the security measures that bct have in place are active ...
3 - the security measures that bct have in place work ...

now i proceeded to send an email to the above email address to theymos - and will see what happens in the following couple of days ... being an easter weekend - i would assume this may take a little more time so ill leave it till mid to end of next week ...

if i havent received a response by then - ill message mprep and see what suggestion he / she will advise of what can be done ...

a three year hero profile like mine should NEVER be allowed to go to waste ( as i know many of you have had profiles lost that are much older than that again ) - and there should be various countermeasures to allow the official owner of the account to prove themselves ( like knowing or remebering the last private messages before the lockout - which in my case was the 23rd march 2016 ) ...

but again - we will see what happens with the responses i get ...

i will keep you all informed of what happnes with this through this profile ive now started ( which is the short version of my name anyway ) ...

as for the update so far ...

the move is being finalized on the 28th march 2016 ( a couple of days away ) which means i will be on and offline here for the next few days - only to be completely offline for a few days while i set up house in the new premises ... this means that i will be only messaging when necessary - and any of those of you that needed my attention before this happened via pm ( there were about 7 pms in all - i only got to answer one ) will need to send a pm to this current profile - until i can resolve this issue with theymos ( and mprep if possible ) - to get back into my official profile ...

thefarm will be down and will not be back in to production until another residence for it can be found - and am currently in the process of looking for a small warehouse for its growth and redesign and development ... that will happen end of next week when i have personally settled into my ( partner and i ) new residence ...

i will be posting this message in all three forums that are granite based - AND - the mining forums i usually frequent ( like spmod and tpruvot thread ) ...

much appreciated for all your support thus far - and hope to be back online soon with my proper profile ...

tanx capnbdl ...

and you have been a long term supporter - as have others ...

this will also mean that all the pms that you and all the others have sent will be inlimbo until i can get full access again ...

which in turn also means i will probably have to restart these threads ...

and being a newbie with this account - its 360seconds between messages - and 90 seconds between searches ... thats a LONG time between messages ...

so they make it very difficult to work on here as a newbie account ...

ive messaged theymos - and will message mprep next week ... i can prove many times over the this is my account - its just based on one damned question - which i forgot the answer to ...

in any case - patience ... as packing is taking the majority of my time at the moment anyhow ...

Ahhh you'll get your account back... sorry to hear that stuff happened... been there too.
Good luck with Granite.  :)

tanx tbear ...

only i could do something as stupid as that ...

anyway - ill start work on granite again at the end of next week ... as well as ozc - when i get the ozziecoin servers restarted and running in our infrastructure ...

looks more like a full rebase with change of algo - and a few features to boot when all that happens ...

it will require a hardfork - but will be well worth it for the future developmetn of granite ( and will probably rebase ozziecoin also - as that is based on x11 PoW also ) ...

i hope i get the account back sooner than later though - the restrictions on this newbie account is too much ...

hi all ...

a few changes in between unpacking and sorting ...

1 - the code for ozc has been migrated to my git and has had a couple of changes made to it ... alongside granite - ozc now has a total of ( the same ) 7 seednodes for sync and blockchain distribution ... these are full nodes - which are a service to the entire ozc network ... these seednodes have also been hardcoded and recompiled in each of the seeds - which means the new code also has all 7 seeds ...

the git here for granite - https://github.com/chrysophylax69/granite/ ...
the git here for ozc - https://github.com/chrysophylax69/ozziecoin/ ...

so those that are savvy with linux can compile immediately - and those that have windows experience compiling can setup up their own wallets from this new git ... for those that cant compile - no issues ... over the coming weeks - we will be organizing new wallets for you to download at your leisure ... you will also find that there is no hesitation with sync using these new wallets - which makes for an easier sync as you dont have to fiddle with the .conf files - unless you require it for a specific purpose ( like setting up your own node ) ...

2 - the block explorer that we have been testing and using for a few weeks now is available for public use ... tanx to fairglu for his expertise and dedication to his work ... we are now on cryptoid for our block explorers ...

granite - https://chainz.cryptoid.info/grn/ ...
ozziecoin - https://chainz.cryptoid.info/ozc/ ...

with ozc now being part of the granite ecosystem - over the coming months we will be making many changes ... not only to ozc - but also to the entire granite system itself ...

we already have plans underway to have all of the projects under one umbrella - and will be setting that side of the 'mother' site up over the coming weeks and months ...

so far - we currently have the following that we have been working on and will amalgamate into the one website for easier use ...

- granite project ( grn - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=718939 ) ...
- ozziecoin project ( ozc - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=578881 ) ...
- donation by mining project ( dbm - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1089744 ) ...
- granite shopping system ( which we will be setting up as a standalone - which accepts grn ozc btc aud usd eu ) ... grn aud and eu is working currently and we are working towards the other currencies ...
- thefarm ( utilizing thegrid ) which complements our projects through mining ...
- the new website ( granite currently - but will change to the new umbrella soon ) which will incorporate all of the above projects ...

a lot in store - and a lot more planned ...

but as with any of you that know how i work - it wont be just 'roadmaps' and 'pretty pictures' with promises of things happening 'tomorrow' or 'next week' ... we mean business and would rather bring the finished products rather than just 'talk' about them ... that can take time - and will certainly take an large effort on our part ... so be patient and always come back to see how the projects are progressing ...

ill publish this post to the other threads in a few minutes ( as this newbie profile is quite limiting ) ...

wow - 2mgrn ... thats a tidy sum ...

lets see how this pans out ...

also keep your eye out for safecex and the trades there ... there seem to be some arbitrage opportunities hovering between the two exchanges with granite ...

bleutrade - https://bleutrade.com/exchange/GRN/BTC ...
safecex - https://safecex.com/market?q=GRN/BTC ...

i trade on both - and find that both are very good ... though safecex is very quick compared to bleutrade ...

no worries george5 ...

i am only starting to settle in - so im not on here ( or working ) as much as id like to be ... but in a few weeks that will change ...

as for coinmarketcap ...

im unsure if it was them that refused to have anyone on there unless they were on bittrex / cryptsy / poloniex ... i could be wrong - but im sure that was the prerequisite at one stage for them ...

granite WAS on bittrex a long time ago - and at that time it was still known as GraniteCoin ... so the remnants of that on coinmarketcap is still there - but no updates have been done on their end ...

coinmarketcap - http://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/granitecoin/ ...

the charts still seem to be accurate to an extent - but because they havent refreshed to the latest daemon or have the latest links to all the components for granite - a lot of these links dont work or are redirected to the wrong place ...

i have contacted a few of the marketcap places in the last year - and due to granite being a low volume coin ( much less than what it is now ) - the marketcap places were not interested in updating ...

i will have a hunt around for others ... and possibly be able to get some that still have the stats for granite ( most will still be GraniteCoin unfortunately ) - but i cant see any real success in it due to the restrictions a lot of these places have on the coin to be listed ...

i would be more than happy to supply any of these marketcap sites the details they require - if im asked to ...

the op is outdated and i have yet to hear from the people at bct about getting my profile back - so its a 'wait and see' scenario here ... if i cant get my profile back - i cant change the threads - and i cant continue with these updates on here ...

the granite forum is being redone - and will be a source of information very soon as well ... so what cannot be found here - will be found there ...

tanx ...

tanx so much for that miningpoolhub ...

its awesome to see granite on a well established and solid pool like yours ...

would it be too much to ask to get a brief description on how to mine - or at least a link - for those that are not familiar with the pool? ... as you have various ways of mining - from directly mining grn with x11 to mining with other algos and have grn as a payout coin - etc ... that would be very much appreciated ...

i can no longer change the op at all without my profile - and the bct people have not been in touch - so i dunno where to go from here with regards to adding you to the op ...

but it is very good news - and tanx ... now to work on ozziecoin and see if we can do the same there ;) ...

tanx again mate ...

You should be spamming BCT staff.. they can't miss 3 emails a day. Also isn't theymos on Reddit banning everyone that disagrees with him?

hi thoth ...

ive just got a couple of messages from one of the admins here - and he said he will do all he can on his end - but he cannot unlock or unban ... only the higher level mods can do that ( theymos badbear ) ...

he also said that badbear is awol at the moment ( everyone is hoping he will be back soon ) and theymos has a HUGE amount of unlocks / unbans / bans to get through - and that 'i wouldnt hold my breath' ...

but he still said he will chat to theymos and cross my fingers ...

so as it stands - it looks more negative than positive - which is quite frustrating and upsetting ...

ill be starting a new thread here - under the new umbrella name that im going to be holding grn and ozc - but ill also be 'redoing' the granite forum to the new name ( umbrella business ) and releasing it completely to the public so that we dont have these sorts of issues again ... its sad that a HUGE forum like this has these sorts of issues falling on ONE persons shoulders ( theymos ) who is THAT frustrated with all the mails and crap thrown around here and at him - that he is banning people on opposition to him ... that much control should only ever be in the hands of people that can handle such things - and theymos is OBVIOUSLY capable of handling his share - but not the entirety of requests and issues that are placed on his shoulders ... i DO sympathize with him - but dont agree on how this is handled ...

the ONE admin that got back to me ( yes - just ONE from the 5 i emailed ) responded within a few minutes of sending the email 2days ago ... and he is the one without the power to do much else but inform me of his lack of authority to proceed with anything ...

he DID however whitelist this newbie account which allows a 'little' more freedom here on the forum ... so kudos to that and him ...

im also starting a new time management system for myself - as things have been way too hectic and my personal life is almost in complete tatters due the move and the move and relocation and updates to teh systems and relocation of thefarm and ... well - you get my drift ;) ...

weekends for me will be off from here - unless urgent things need to be taken care of ... which means saturdays for me are getting things done in the background - sundays are for my partner and i ... weekdays are work - no matter how many hours i put in ...

ill be updating here and in the other threads with the address of the new thread on bct ... then the new forum address next week ...

this is NOT to compete against bct ( i dont know that could ever really happen with ANY other forum ) - but the new forum WILL allow a much more efficient way of updating ... apart from that - another user and i are the admins of theforum - and we can be a little more efficient at getting things done ...

im off for the next two days to try and organize my life from the boxes and unpacking and to try and start getting settled properly ... i may even take the week off from here to get it all done ...

thoth - if you have time to speak to whomever you were saying can write up a good op for the new thread - i would be interested ... though i have no btc or cash currently ( wiped out from the move ) - a deal can be struck if they are capable of making a presentable op for me ...

if interested - ill be available to read later - or on skype ( preferably ) ...

hope to hear from you there ...

tanx ...

Actually this forum has reached it's climax I think,
If a new slick one was designed that could port over peoples threads and Accounts but be more user friendly and faster I think it would be a winner.

I know Crytpocointalk does it for threads but it's complete rubbish...

The advertising revenue could be huge.

i use skype because if its centralization server ... i have it on all my devices and all the conversations can be had on all devices at any time i need it ...

so i could be shopping for a new video card for thefarm for example - and still be able to converse ...

jonesd mentioned a while back with help for such matters as the op - but that was a while back and he obviously is flat out also ...

eitherway - im easy ... hope to chat soon ...

I just see about security issues when skype drops off P2P

Editing an OP is easy stuff,  and you have good branding ready to go.

theforum WILL happen ...

it exists now but as a granite forum only in its current state - http://granitecoin.com/forum/ ...

but it does have some bugs with the theme used and its very granite-centric ... so it will be revamped ... hopefully with the theme bugfixes if there are any ...

bct is huge - and well know - so a contender to port over accounts wont happen - 'they' wont allow it ...

but if the communities are willing to move to other forums - then great ... if not - then great ...

what i see for me is a chance to NEVER lose my account no matter what happens - or how stupid i was forgetting my password ... and with a much more efficient way of dealing with this all - than waiting WEEKS before ANYONE looks at the issue - only to be told that i shouldnt hold my breath because - which means that chances of anything happening is so slim that i may as well consider my 'proper' account lost ... which just goes to prove that we all really should stop calling these account 'ours' or 'my' accounts ... they are not ... they can be taken from us ANYTIME with the flick of finger on a keyboard ...

now to get the 'account they bct allowed me to use' ;) ...

will see what they come up with and how long it takes ... i DO want it back - its just frustrating starting all over again with a newbie account when the main account i had was almost legendary and took three years to setup - with almost ALL of those that i deal with regularly on here recognizing that account ...

whats the use if i cant get it back .. its not like it was hacked - that i can understand ... but even in that case - there still should be options that dont mean a loss of account ...

just popping in to let you know that my team and i are working behind the scenes for the changes that are coming ...

granite and ozzicoin will be part of a larger group - and will become 'sister coins' in their development and changes that are coming for the both of them ...

the other projects are being moved under the one group also - and all this is happening currently ... it just takes time ...

its an exciting one ...

time is always the issue ( and this time location and money ) - so will get things moving as soon as i can sort a few things out on my end ...

a new thread is being written currently - though i may just start a basic text one in the next couple of days - as i am useless with making the op 'pretty' ...

it will be here initially until we can get 'theforum' redone ... then im moving it all there ...

Hi Crysx !

Good news ! I'm waiting your changes.

Thk u

tanx mik57 ...

there are a number of beckend changes happening currently - which will make the frontend changes easier AND the development as well ...

granite and ozziecoin will be incorporated under the new umbrella soon - along with the rest of the projects ...

im still currently VERY ill and need rest every couple of hours ...

so it looks like im going to be useless to everyone until i can get rid of this sickness ive contracted ( a viral infection ) from my grandsons - bless em ... both my partner and i have been infected with it - so it will be the rest of this week before we can overcome this ... meanwhile - we are still building the backend to the specs i would like to see in the infrastructure ... so that is coming along slowly but surely ...

we will need to decide what we will be doing with ozziecoin also - so discussions need to take place soon over that ... mainly over the premine and the amount of coins in the network ... we have taken on a coin that curently has a huge base of minted coins ( a massive premine ) and another huge sum of coins still being minted as PoW progresses ... so a lot to chat about ...

i want to create a list of items that i would like to see happen in the coming weeks and months - but one of the main ones is the search ( which is currently underway ) for an investor / investors / crowdfund to get thefarm back on line and thegrid ( which thefarm operates ontop of ) progress with development ...

so far - there is one investor interested - but will not invest the funds we require for the full redevlopment ... this will set back that newly designed cooling system im developing for the gpu farm ...

bct mods still had nothing about my chrysophylax account - and ive lost faith in their ability to do anything about it ... especially when there is such negative feedback from many who have lost their accounts - and the mods of this forum have done nothing at all about it ... im experienceing the same thing ... so theymos is a ficticious character in the story of bct ... seems to be that way ...

theforum in its new incarnation will NOT have that issue - and i certainly will never lose my account due to the non-action taken due to the 'dont care' attitude of these mods here on this forum ...

satoshi would be disgusted in them ...

but - we will keep moving forward ...

more news soon ...

yup ...

its happening everywhere mate ...

i remeber the last time i was in newcastle - they had two planes go overhead in the space of 2hours or so ...

adelaide is almost a daily occurrence ... the chemicals they are dispersing through the air is questionable - but the government has always said that they are not harmful to the health - and have no REAL explanation as to WHY these things continue to happen ... though i honestly believe its because they cannot admit that they are experimenting ...

my sickness is a virus i caught off the grandikids - so i doubt its attributed to the chemicals the government is polluting the air with ... but who knows ...

all i can do is try and get better sooner so that i can work again on all this ...

btw - domains are all registered ( from what my firend has told me ) for the new system / site - now its up to me to get everything else sorted ... he will be taking care of the business side of things - while i take care of this side ...

i have also spoken with soopy regarding the dev work needed for grn and ozc - and we are nutting out a few things now ... i think there will be some massive changes happening very shortly - and i may need to reshuffle what needs to be done ...

skaia is working on some of the backend components - including internal trading bots and the ozc vps systems ...

will update more later ...

i have also spoken wioth soopy regarding the dev work needed for grn and ozc - and we are nutting out a few things now ... i think there will be some massive changes happening very shortly - and i may need to reshuffle what needs to be done ...

skaia is working on some of the backend components - including internal trading bots and the ozc vps systems ...

will update more later ...

hi all ...

so many things happening - so ill just let you all know that granite is now on the vote list for cryptopia ...

so anyone that has vote access to cryptopia - or btc spare - or dot spare - please go in and vote as we would really like to be online there ...

trading on cryptopia is great also ...

though you cant autosell any mining coins on there - the devs are working on these features in the future ...

https://www.cryptopia.co.nz/Vote ...

go to the site and help us get in ...

if we do - then we will be on bleutrade as well as safecex ( which is down at the moment ) and cryptopia ...

btw - if our total votes on cryptopia gets to more than 2million - we are in anyway ... so please help getting granite in ...

the rest of the updates will be in the next post ... as we will be moving away from this thread if i cant get my chrysophylax profile back ...

hi all ...

the official granite pool is down - at no fault of our own ...

here is the official aws post below ...

-------

[RESOLVED] Connectivity Issues in AP-SOUTHEAST-2
On June 4th at 10:25 PM PDT a significant number of EC2 instances and EBS volumes within a single Availability Zone in the AP-SOUTHEAST-2 Region experienced a loss of power. Beginning at this same time, EC2 API calls in the AP-SOUTHEAST-2 Region experienced increased error rates and latencies as well as delays in propagation of instance state data in the affected Availability Zone. Instances and volumes in the other Availability Zones in the AP-SOUTHEAST-2 Region were unaffected. At 11:46 PM PDT, power was restored to the facility and instances and volumes started to recover. At 1:00 AM PDT, 80% of the affected instances and volumes had been recovered by our automated systems. At 2:45 AM PDT the increased error rates and latencies for the EC2 APIs and the delayed propagation of instance state data were fully resolved. A couple of unexpected issues prevented our automated systems from recovering the remaining instances and volumes. The team was able to fix these issues, and by 8:00 AM PDT, all but a small number of instances and volumes were recovered. Since 8:00 AM PDT our teams have been working to recover these remaining instances and volumes. Most of these instances are hosted on hardware which was adversely affected by the loss of power. While we will continue to work to recover any affected instances or volumes, we recommend replacing any remaining affected instances or volumes if possible. Please see http://aws.amazon.com/instance-help for assistance working with non-responding instances.

-------

what this has done is crash the instance itself - and they have yet to recover the this instance - even though they have fixed their power and production issues ...

this has left us with a predicament that we are trying to resolve currently ...

we are trying to recreate a new instance - based on the last automatic backup of the previous instance ...

this may not work as the backup was made based on the corrupt instance that is what the granite pool is at the moment - a mess ...

we will rebuild a new instance - and currently the new daemon and blockchain are syncing in an effort to retrieve as much transactions as we can ... but this also means that the mpos database may have corrupted also - and as such - transactions could be lost in the process ...

there is no simple solution for this except to restore from an old backup that seems to be still working ( september 2015 ) - and hope that the system can rebuild itself from there ...

we have made quite a few changes since that working backup - with regards to the bonuses for miners and the pool and the settings of the pool ... if the back up works and gets back up and running - we will set the changes back on the pool - and will make sure an alternative measure is taken if indeed this happens again with aws ...

three new pools will be built - each with a different focus - which will happen when the redevelopment of granite starts again in a week or so ... this does not mean they will all be mpos based - but it does mean will have a gamut of pools to work with - regardless of whether this happens again or not ...

support from aws is VERY limited - without paying a large sum of money to get the support - even though its THEIR issue that caused this problem ... so we will work around this within the coming months ...

im still in search of a pool dev to join our ranks - so that these pools will be serviced and maintained and improved - inhouse and on a regular basis ...

a new thread seems imminent - as there doesnt seem to be any way of getting the 'chrysophylax' profile back ...

we do apologize for the hold up - and we will get the pool back up as soon as humanly possible ...

in the meantime - please use the other existing pools to mine granite ( and ozziecoin with some ) ... aikapool - ispace - steakcloud - miningpoolhub - yiimp - zpool ...

if i have left any pools out - ill ammend this post - with links also ... right now - back to the damage control of the pool ...

much appreciated ...

hi all ...

it seems that the restore of the production system for aws was a success - and they managed to get the instance running again ...

well done - and many tanx - aws ...

a new daemon with the latest code has been recompiled and started on the server - so the long process of the blockchain resync has begun ...

being a pool wallet - there are many thousands of transactions that need to be processed within the wallet - and we expect this process to take the better part of 7hours ... this can be seen via the block update on the pool ( current block window - http://grn-pool.granitecoin.com/ ) and when it gets to the latest block shown on the explorer ( https://chainz.cryptoid.info/grn/ ) - the pool will be back in action ...

stratum will be activated in a few minutes ...

if there are any issues that anyone encounters after the sync has finished - please post here and let us know ...

much appreciated for the patience while this issue was being resolved ...

hi all ...

doing some backend work on the infrastructure - we would like to invite all those who want to mine to test the new inhouse pools we have for our coin projects ...

the pool site is part of the new umbrella that will incorporate all the projects we currently have - and are working on and more will be added when we can ...

website menu ...

Code:
http://pool.granitecoin.com/ ...

so if there are those wishing to mine grn ozc don - please give the new pools a test and see how they perform ...

this is only one part of the infrastructure we are designing and developing for the entire ecosystem - but it is an integral one ...

details below ...

Code:
pool menu - http://pool.granitecoin.com/ ...
pool type - mpos ...
pool algorithms - x11 and scrypt ...
pool ports - 7000 ( grn - x11 ) 7001 ( ozc - x11 ) 7200 ( don - scrypt ) ...
pool fee - 0.7% ...
miner donation - starting at 0.7% but entirely at miners discretion ...

commandline address ...

Code:
grn - stratum+tcp://pool.granitecoin.com:7000/ -a x11 ...
ozc - stratum+tcp://pool.granitecoin.com:7001/ -a x11 ...
don - stratum+tcp://pool.granitecoin.com:7200/ -a scrypt ...


and as we have now been signed on as the official pool for goldblocks - it will be added to the official list of pools we have ...

as the mining demand for goldblocks has been overwhelming - there are two stratum ports for mining ... low difficulty stratum and high difficulty stratum ... for those mining using nicehash or miningrigrentals or any other high hash rental site - please use the hidiff stratum ... all others mining with gpu or asic with a lower hashrate - please use the low diff stratum ...

Code:
gb lodiff stratum setup - stratum+tcp://goldblocks.granitecoin.com:8000/ -a x11 ...
gb hidiff stratum setup - stratum+tcp://goldblocks.granitecoin.com:8500/ -a x11 ...

these commands obviously do not include any / all of the settings you would have to mine - so add accordingly to the miner that you use ... such as intensity settings and the like ...

this is the beta site - and as such the pools are in beta until we can test them all fully to make sure that they are responsive - stable - and always available ...

so far though - with the current state of test - all have been working well ...

as always - let us know if there are any issues - and we will attend to them as soon as humanly possible ... either here in the thread - or on irc on channel #digitaldzyne ... at least for the time being until we can organize a permanent place ( with the website being designed currently ) ...

happy mining ...

that would seem like the best way to go - but its considered spamming the threads - and get in real dire straights because of it ...

im starting a new thread soon here ... it seems though - im waiting on people for the details and graphics and such - and end up delaying everything i do ... which shows as if its me that delaying it all ...

so i will start the new thread - so that there is no procrastination on my end and deal with the changes as they come ...

there are many many changes about to happen - and i need to coordinate them efficiently enough to have them work properly together effectively ...

we have been trying to get a more 'appropriate' name for the new umbrella - but digital dzyne seems to be the one that has all its options open - with regards to domains and business registrations and the like ...

thefarm is also delayed AGAIN ... which is really starting to upset me ... as im itching to get stuck into the rebuild of it and get hashing once again ...

either way - ill publish here the new thread when i can at least get some sort of coherent op done for it ...

or just do it and build on it when i can ...

heh i really need to make mine look more orderly :p

id say so - yes ...

there was a guy that started to create sigs for us - but i just didnt have the complete setup nor the btc to get it organized ...

he is a good sig maker - and has been waiting for me ... so when all this is put together - ill have him setup a good one for all levels of bct and our forum ...

we have been searching for a good name for the umbrella - as digital dzyne IS the name ive gone with but seems to be a little misleading to what we do as a team who develop not only coins - but the entire ecosystem ...

but almost all the names we have been throwing around - especially ones that have been catchy - have all been registered and setup on domains - with some also registered business names ...

we need one that is unique - yet catchy - and still explains the what we do as a team - AND - is available to be registered both on domains and as a business name ... at least here in australia anyway ...

so much to do yet though - as ive started on the op as well - but under the name of 'digital dzyne' ... and its 'my' way of op - so its not very professional looking at all ...

but we do need to get it all started here - so we can really get things together ...

sigs are part of that - and so are the wallets - and redevelopment of the code for the coins and other projects we have ...

slowly but surely ... we will get there ...

btw - the pools are down for a few hours more - until can get the dash daemon compiled - to see if the dash pool will be fully functioning and solid - and whether i can get it running in the first place :) ...

so bear with us while this is happening ...

doing deals like that would be a huge thing - and very welcome indeed ...

there will many things that can be done with the coins - but moreso - the ecosystem when its finished ...

to get in on those sorts of deals - we would need to show a huge change in what we are doing ... and as such - takes a lot of time ...

ive been working on the infrastructure for a long time now - and perfecting the base that all this will be built on ...

i now have a team ( 'theteam' ) that has all the skills to take our projects to the next level ... so WE can move everything forward ... and i mean everything ...

this means we will be taking a very different approach as to how this is done - and a different approach to the changes required to do them ...

which ever way we go ( and yes - there IS a plan that we are perfecting currently ) - it will be for the communities of the projects we have as a whole ...

this means a major overhaul ...

thefarm is ONE of those 'modules' that require attention now ...

always good to hear the thoughts and ideas of the community ...

it needs to be something that encompasses what we do ( as 'theteam' ) with development and collaboration - as well as mining - infrastructure and support for the ecosystem thats being built ...

and also needs to be able to be registered in many domains as well ... as it will be starting under a small business name - that will be incorporated at a later date ...

so the umbrella name has to cover all these factors and a couple more - like it needs to be easy to pronounce and reproduce ...both verbally and visually ...

a 'roll-off-the-tongue' description of what we are and what we do ... or as close as we can get to it ...

tanx for the ideas ...

im off tomorrow to finish the rest of the rebuild for thefarm - though the server will be its priority - so ill be away for a few days ...

though ill still be in touch via skype - my focus will be to get as much done as possible in the short period of time i have to finalize this - so i wont be online for too many hours at a time ... especially once we get all of thefarm running and fully accessible ...

some updates are occurring as we speak with granite - and the ecosystem is currently being built one module at a time ...

the new chain works industries ( cwi ) logo - graphics - website - and support infrastructure is also currently being built ... this includes ALL the seednodes and vps systems and servers and infrastructure - all dedicated and running through the new domain name http://chainworksindustries.com/ which is not currently active - but will be soon ...

the new cwi website will not only be the portal for all the projects we have running - but also the base for the information - stats - knowledgebase - and integrations of the entire cwi ecosystem ... as such - the site will be built incrementally as time goes on - but will have the basic features in full view - when the website is published on the domain in the coming weeks ...

granite itself will receive a massive upgrade in the longer term - but in the very near future will have all the smaller updates being applied as they get developed into the wallet and the code ... so a few updates will happen as shortly as a week or two away - and will continue to fix and add - to make the migration to the new code and new full redevelopment of granite as smooth as possible ...

all this will be revealed in detail as time allows - and incrementally as the new thread for cwi is created starting next week ...

an enormous amount of time and effort and money has gone into this - especially the infrastructure - to bring a system that is not only solid and stable - but simple to use also ...

we have already started work on the designs and systems to make this happen ... so time will show those results - and the projects we have like this one - will become integrated and work seamlessly together in a single simple system ...

from mining to buying - these projects will be units working in symbiosis - and as such will all become part of a larger ecosystem that works and performs as a single unit ... the result will become a seamless integration of different projects - in the one simple to use system which includes the granite wallet ...

now to focus on thefarm infrastructure and finalize the first stage of this mining system - so that it can become a massive unit of measure against any gpu ( possibly others down the road ) mining system in the world ... thats our plan anyway ...

dbm ( donate by mining ) and ozziecoin ( ozc ) - even though will have their own upgrades individually soon - are a part of the ecosystem ... and as such - will play an integral part ...

chain work industries - the story begins ...

not at all mate ...

a lot of mails that ive received have been people who have invested for the very long term ...

now that im in queensland on a fulltime contract / work - i will be settling in a over the next few weeks - with a new wallet ( currently still testing ) and a new outlook and direction that we will be going - not just for granite - but for chainworks industries as a whole which includes ozziecoin - thefarm - thegrid - and our other projects ...

in the gold coast at the moment - with a move to brisbane in the next 4-6weeks ...

im keeping my bag for the time being as well ... no selling for me - just accumulation for the last few years now ...

all posts for updates will be done of the cwi thread when im setup ...

hi all ...

a note to inform the community that the new granite wallet will be released very shortly ...

testing has conclusively proven that the backend code has been improved and reliable - and will be updated to github very soon ...

they are mainly technical changes - and mainly to prepare the codebase for a complete change ...

the windows and osx wallets will be prepared soon - and the links will be posted here when they are ready ...

the major change in this wallet version is the location of the wallet files - as the codebase has been changed to the standard naming convention .of 'granite' and lowercase ...

which also means that the wallet location will change from .GraniteCoin to .granite ...

this will be an easy conversion - and steps to do so will accompany the release of the wallet ... as will details of the other changes to this version of granite ...

the release will happen within the next week ...

and LOTS more coming in the near future ... especially the full rebase of granite on the new code - which we have decided will more than likely be based on the new dash code - with prepararions for some of our changes to boot ...

the new cwi website will begin in the following week also ... we have been very busy preparing all the backend - for the web designer to create the front end to ...

closure of THIS official granite pool ( http://grn-pool.granitecoin.com ) - to make way for the new official pools ( http://pool.chainworksindustries.com ) ...


hi all ...

this pool will soon be closing as the official granite pool by friday 6th january 2017 - and will be replaced by the pool that we have been alpha testing for the past few months as the official pool in the CWI pool system ...

this closure is part of the restructure for ChainWorks Industries - and will become part of the CWI pool framework as well as the CWI ecosystem ...

we believe this is a necessary step towards the growth of the infrastructure for granite - and being part of a larger system will enhance the facilities that are available to us in such a company ...

please stop mining here and withdraw all the coins by the end of december - as the windup in the first week of january will mean you cannot access the pool or its facilities ...

the official granite pool has been operating for years now - as a service for the granite community - and has been proud to do so ...

we want to continue this legacy of service - and joining the CWI framework is a step in the right direction ...

please setup a new account at http://pool.granitecoin.com/ and start mining there asap ...

the url WILL change when it is all signed over to ChainWorks Industries - but there will be ample time to change the address for the miners to the new address of http://pool.chainworksindustries.com/ ...

all notifications will be made in the new thread on bitcointalk ( https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1563601 ) - and the new CWI forum when it is up also ...

we are thankful that we have such a committed community - and look forward to servicing you in the future with much bigger and better facilities ...

tanx,

hi mate ...

glad to see you back :) ...

what are you trying to do? ... mine with sgminer50? ...

btw - the cwi thread is where i am mostly answering questions and updating ... soon - when the cwi thread is updated properly - all these threads will be locked ...

if you are testing the miner - the 'old' official pool will be shut down very soon ... and the new pools will have the official granite pool running there instead ... so please re-register there - as that will soon be updated with the new stratums that has been worked on also ...

let me know mate - so we can figure out what it is you are having issues with ... as for sync - the latest core code has 25cwi seednodes hardcoded and is available in my git ... the only thing is - i have not released the windows and osx wallets as yet ... so sync will not be an issue ... the difference between the old wallets and new core code - is that all reference to the old 'GraniteCoin' name has changed to 'granite' ... so the folder names have changed also ... the new directory name is now 'granite' so any windows wallet folders and .conf files need to be renamed to from 'GraniteCoin' to 'granite' ... everything else remains the same ...

a full update will be made soon on the cwi thread about all this ...

I'm using the miner on the pool named granite - alpha centos 7 x64.
Anyway, im probably going to stop mining anyway, the difficulty is too high. It looks like you were the only miner for quite a while. :)

hi mate ...

yup - thats the new pool - which will replace the old 'official' pool ...

there seems to be no issues with teh pool at all - and i was the only miner on there for the testing period ...

the high diff and heavy mining is coming from zpool again - as crackers reinstated granite and ozziecoin back on the pool ... so with gigahashes being thrown periodically at it - the diff will constantly fluctuate ...

tarithel is still mining at the old 'official' pool - and is constantly hashing at about 200mh ... that pool will close in the coming weeks ...

the new stratum has been built - and with these new pools - will be tested extensively ... the new cwi pools will be the official pools for our coins ... when the new stratum that has been built for cwi is implemented - all the pools will be designated as 'beta' and change colour to the 'beta' colour ( cyan / light blue ) ...

sgimner50 should work well - but the diff is a bit high for a single gpu card now ... and with the new release of the windows / osx wallets - will probably climb even more if people start using the asics to mine x11 ...

pm your address and ill donate a few coins to you mate ...

thats the google checking system that is doing that ...

i will look into the site - but the granite site is going to be a part of the cwi-site ... so it will eventually be pulled down ...

we will have a look at what is causing this - and possibly blow away the entire site and rebuilt it with the ( semi ) built new site ... which will be integrated into the cwi-site when its built ...

Is there a windows wallet download? Because I'd rather not keep my coins on an exchange. :)

morning mate ...

not for the current git - but only the one before ...

we are trying to get the download backend sorted - as dropbox continues to lock out users due to 'too many requests' ... what a load of crap ...

ill supply you the previous windows wallet ( this core does not have ALL the 25seednodes hardcoded ) if you want it ...

btw - this thread will soon be locked - as all the projects will be posted on the cwi thread ...

Dropbox has dropped the box?

in a sense - yup ...

we are looking at a mega account ... but need to transfer ALL the files from dropbox to mega if it works - which takes time ...

maybe just get the downloadables into mega for the time being - and then create a business account with them later ...

You should have a look at the "release" section on github,
easy to put all release versions of wallets on there .

https://github.com/chrysophylax69/granite/releases

tanx mate ...

i have been - and will do just that ...

the old granite site ( http://granitecoin.com/ ) has not bee updated for a while - and as such has not been looked at for that period of time also ...

all systems will be pushed through http://chainworksindustries.com/ eventually anyway ...

we do have a new website for granite - in the same sort of theme that the old one is - but have not pushed it to the public site ... now it seems we dont have too much of a choice unless we want these warning issues ...

wallets will be pushed to the releases section for now - as we have the new windows / osx wallets created and ready for full publication ...

the cwi-thread will have all the details soon ...

its my workload that is slowing all of this down currently ... but im hoping that this week we can push it all out ... including the 7 new pools for the cwi-pool system ...

again - all updates will be on that thread - ill be locking this thread soon ...

i havent received any pm yet ...

@mmo_online_1981 - we have the latest windows and osx compiled wallets but have yet to publish them due to the update of the op ... and since we are moving this thread to the cwi-thread - we will be updating ALL the details there ... including the links to the wallets ...

these are official wallets - and are fully tested ... if there is ANY hint that they have any form of infection from places like virustotal - its because of the solo-mining code that is in the wallet and are completely FALSE POSITIVES ... thats If there is any ...

do NOT accept wallets from ANYWHERE ELSE - or from any one else ... we cannot guarantee any of those wallets are clean ...

this week - we are finalizing the updates to the cwi-pool system - and will be releasing the pools as full production ... after 7 weeks of testing - they have passed every test - even while the improvement of the cwi-stratum was taking place and being rewritten ...

ill publish the wallets soon - but if you give me a pm - ill send you a private link for the time being ...

there are instructions that you need to follow if you already have an older wallet - as directories and files have changed due to the standardized naming convention we are using now ...

hi all ...

a few changes about to be made ... and will happen step by step as we move over the next few weeks ...

new windows and osx wallets have been compiled - and we are looking at a more permanent way of distributing them - as dropbox is just being completely stupid ...

denying connection to the wallet shared links with an error 'too many connections' for the shared links we provide ...

disgusting for a company that alludes people into thinking they are a great storage platform - even when we ( cwi ) have a paid membership ...

we are looking at producing the wallets and distributing them through the cwi-git when we get the git all in order with all the code we need to upload ...

hi all ...

just to remind the community that we do have an official pool for granite and ozziecoin ( our own cwi-coins ) ...

these pools are part of the cwi-poolsystem - and as such are backed by cwi as well as the cwi-infrastructure ...

if you would like to directly mine to the pools - just setup an account - setup miners - and start your miners ...

the cwi-stratum is a unique custom stratum built for a solid mining experience - and we are making it better and better as time and development goes on ...


the main mining page ...

http://pool.chainworksindustries.com/ ...


the direct links to grn and ozc respectively ...

http://pool.chainworksindustries.com/grn/ ...
http://pool.chainworksindustries.com/ozc/ ...


both these pools are x11 - so its only a matter of ports that need to be changed - or set in your scripts ...

you will also find that in the title menu - the full details of the pool is present ...

ie ...

- pool name ... the name of the coin that the pool mines ...
- pool port ... the port that you set for the miner to mine this particular pool ...
- pool designation ... the stage at which the pool is currently at ( alpha - beta - production ) ...
- pull down menu for the other pools available to mine ...

there are a number of other pools that can mined via the cwi-poolsystem and the dropdown menu is an easy method of going to the pool of choice ... remember also - being an sso cwi-poolsystem - once an account is setup - it is the same account ( and miners ) used for all the pools in this sso server ...

and as always - we are more than happy to help anywhere we can ...
