1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Need help setting up a Ethereum stratum mining pool on: April 22, 2021, 09:27:14 PM
Hey, I'm far from having enough hashpower to solomine, I know the math behind the difficulty and my hashrate and the variance that comes with it (it would take many months to find a block solo) but I'd like to setup my own stratum pool for me and a few friends as they are bugging me for it. I know there are "solo pools" but we really can't trust them as much.

I finally have geth synced with --syncmode full and it's done after many days but the whole thing is "only" 729GB (thought it should be like ~2x of that afaik) and I can't solomine due to various errors but that's fine.

I want to build a stratum pool for this.

Does still work or what should I use and what settings to use for geth?

I'm on windows but I can fire up a linux VM if needed. Cheers!
2  Economy / Service Discussion / Looking for a site with past BTC/USD monthly averages on: February 20, 2020, 11:34:13 PM
Hi, I'm not interested in various trading sites with the usual graphs as they usually go in much smaller timescales (weekly at best), I just want an easy peak into the monthly average price of Bitcoin historically, up to present.

Ideally for the last 30 days of rolling average, but I can also do with a monthly average. Is there any such site like that I've missed? Extra bonus points for a public API. Thanks.

Edit: I've only found this, but it's not completely satisfactory:

As much as I'd like to see Homero Joshua Garza to get fucked, repeatedly, against his will, in various ways, it's obvious that there's a new scam disguised going around.

I've got the same email on multiple email accounts, all of them being highly unofficial and scammy.

Title is: "Court Approved Legal Notice about a Class Action Lawsuit Involving GAW Miners, LLC and ZenMiner, LLC"
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / What happened to Veltor? on: April 05, 2018, 08:24:52 AM
Its thread's locked, website empty, git cleaned out, no block explorer, etc.

The only thing I see is that it's still listed on yobit.

What happened to it?

7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Is there a way to set a custom temperature limit on GPU Boost 3.0 cards? on: June 21, 2017, 01:36:20 PM
GPU Boost 3.0 cards ignore manual temperature limits in tools like MSI Afterburner or EVGA Precision.

You can set the temps to let's say 65C but as long as the power is not limited the card will heat up to as much as 80+C (card in question is AORUS 1080 Ti).

Is there any tool that enforces a custom temperature limit and throttles the card based on that for windows?
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Nvidia cards crashing: "GPU is lost" on: June 19, 2017, 10:53:11 AM
I keep getting this on a couple of 1080 Ti's randomly:

Sometimes it happens to only one card, sometimes they all fall together and flatline in MSI Afterburner.

Happens in both 3 and 4 card 10870 Ti rigs on a 1300W EVGA PSU with powered USB risers and even on a rig with only 1 card.

Seem to happen more frequently when the power limit is at 100% instead of around 70-80% but it might just be a coincidence.

The cards are only around 65C.

Any suggestions what could cause this?
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / "Problem Ejecting NVIDIA GeForce GTX..." error message? on: June 07, 2017, 01:34:33 AM
I keep getting this error message randomly when mining on a couple of rigs:

at which point the card crashes and sometimes even the rig crashes.

I get this mostly on a 4 card 1080 Ti rig and a 4 card 1070 rig.

It mostly happens if I OC just a tiny bit (+20-40 Mhz) and if I set the power target close to 100% instead of the usual ~70%.

I'm suspecting it has to be the PSU but it doesn't make sense since they are EVGA SuperNOVA 1300W G2 in both rigs. And I have a rig with 6 x 1070 with the same PSU without any issues. I tried switching around the risers but didn't help.
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Looking for "ccminer/enemy-0.2b" on: May 31, 2017, 01:37:48 PM
I've been seeing a miner mod called "ccminer/enemy-0.2b" on yiimp's benchmark page and this miner seems to be pretty fast in every algo.

Anyone have any info on this fork? PM if you know something.
11  Other / Meta / Browsing logged in is much slower than logged out or with a new account on: February 24, 2017, 08:44:17 PM
I noticed that when I'm logged out the site is much faster at loading pages and I can't figure out why. That way it's near instant while logged in adds an extra 1-3 seconds per pageload.

Clearing cookies didn't help.

I tried with a new account with same settings and that was fast as well so that pretty much excludes my end.

The only difference I can see is that this account is subscribed to 24 pages of threads but that shouldn't affect pageloads, and certainly not this much, right?

I have no idea why it is the case but it's very clearly there; I did a few test with a stopwatch measuring the time it takes to load 10 pages of the same thread one after the other and the difference is always at least double.

Title says it all. I run a lot of wallets and some likes to write gigabytes of data which I want to avoid.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [Virus Warning] Moderated Putincoin and MARV threads on: June 27, 2016, 11:19:17 AM
User hananl1styo created two moderated coin ANN threads with links to weird wallets which are more than likely contain malwares.

He's also deleting comments.

Note, the first and unmoderated Putincoin has a different, likely safe wallet.
14  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Why blocktime decrease instead of blocksize increase is not discussed? on: March 01, 2016, 08:10:19 AM
I mean I know the disadvantages of bigger block sizes but I can't think of any disadvantages to having like 5 minute blocks (with obviously half rewards).

Blockchain bloat is not an issue as it's practically all about block sizes anyway.
And of course Bitcoin is quite slow for today's standard so halving the blocktime would help both with that and the maximum TX per seconds as well.
Add 2MB blocks to the mix and the maximum TX per second is already quadrupled without any major effects that I can think of.

It's obviously not even discussed for a good reason but I'm curious what that reason might be.

17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Pools (Altcoins) / Need help adding lyra2re2 to nomp+mpos pool on: October 01, 2015, 02:12:21 PM
I have a nomp (zone117x) and mpos pool (based on this guide) that I'm trying to add lyra2re2 support but I'm not sure how.

I added a change to algoProperties.js that I found here:

but I'm not sure how to actually add the hashing algo into multihashing and whatever else that would be required to set it up.

It also worth noting the wallet daemon of the coin I want to use doesn't have rpc client functionality (only -cli) so I might also need help with that.

I can offer a small bounty, pm me if you can help.
18  Economy / Service Discussion / cloud mining? on: June 06, 2015, 02:32:48 PM
There are fake tweets at the bottom of the site with pictures of Jimi Hendrix, Steve Jobbs and Adele, is it supposed to be a joke or a poor scam attempt?

Edit: nice, google is blocking it already.
19  Other / Meta / Missing email notifications on: March 19, 2015, 05:00:00 PM
I'm subscribed to a couple of boards like the altcoin announcements section and have email notifications enabled but for some new threads I don't get notifications at all. I'm not sure if maybe these threads were created somewhere else and have been moved or why but sometimes there are no emails whatsoever (not in spam, etc). I'm using gmail.

For example, I haven't received an email about this thread: and this thread while I did receive one about this one:

So why is that?
