and the windows qt wallet  works fine but i think it use a bit to much memory  (2.4gb)  others good wallets  use less than 1gb, bitcoin qt for example use less than 200mb

Firstly, that's a lie. Bitcoin doesn't use only 200MB.
Secondly, Bitcoin has only half a million blocks. DigiByte has over 9 million. You can see more about this here: https://github.com/digibyte/digibyte/issues/144

Thanks for the reminder...

Hi there, just wanted to find out if you had upgraded your pool to 7.17.2 specifically?
We have the upgrade coming out shortly, don't want anybody to be left behind Smiley

noob question to be sure : if we just hodl, we can do this upgrade whenever we want right ?

Yes, you can continue to receive on existing addresses etc, but, your wallet won't update and show your balance (Only DigiByte Blockchain Explorers will). You'll need to update before sending.

If you've got your wallet.dat backed up and in cold storage, say for a decade down the track, then don't worry about it, you're fine, just use the latest when you *do* decide to restore it.

Which FPGA miner do you recommend after  forking Odocrypt algo?

We have some of this information on the Wiki, about getting started, hardware, some FAQ as well:

Also, when upgrading, you can now run all 5x algorithms from a single digibyted instance, simply by updating the pool software to pass the algo every time getblocktemplate is called.
If no changes are made, existing software will still function the same with algo= being passed in digibyte.conf

But, running 1x larger server that doesn't keep having issues seems better than running 5x smaller servers Wink

Hi TheBlocksFactory operators,

The DigiByte community is thrilled to inform you of the release of 7.17.2, ready for immediate installation. We have our mandatory protocol upgrade to Odocrypt (Replacing Myr-Gr) scheduled for Block 9,100,000 at which time you need to be running DigiByte Core 7.17.2 to ensure you are not left behind. This is expected to be reached approx July 19th 2019

This version also includes the Dandelion++ implementation enabled by default, though this can be disabled by launching using -disabledandelion=1

You can compile the latest version if you would like: https://github.com/digibyte/digibyte/tree/7.17.2
The upgrade should install over the top of 6.17.x with no changes to RPC calls etc made since

Alternatively if you want quick access to the binaries, you can get these from https://github.com/digibyte/digibyte/releases

In order to ensure the whole network is ready for the upgrade, can you please send me back a confirmation once you have completed the upgrade, so we can check you off at our Wiki, as we want to ensure we have reached out to all Exchanges and Pool operators where possible.

Sincerely

DigiByte Team

I think Digibyte is not good coin as it has outdated technology behind it Sad

Ummm w0t? I'd love to know what outdated technology DigiByte uses?

A few things to consider:
1) DigiByte is only going to be PoW. Jared has made infographics stating just how much better it is, and he's not the kind of man to do an about-face. Just go to the DigiByte website, under Blockchain, you'll see "Where does DigiByte fit into the blockchain industry?". So it's not about to become some hybrid with PoS.

2) adding a cap to GPU mining etc would only encourage botnets. Look at VertCoin and why they did their latest algo change.

3) It's not ASICs driving price down, as mentioned the trading volume vs new DigiByte mined, that just doesn't make any sense. People are emotional, as you can see by a large number of the recent posts here. People want news, they wanna be cuddled and wrapped in cotton wool and told "Yeah, good job about your investment, you keep hanging onto those coins!". People forget that the tech is still insanely solid, the dev committed, the vision is there, and the price will eventually follow suit. A wise person with a long term vision would see now is definitely the time to double down on your holdings.

4) Everything takes time, and developers who can assist are more welcome to jump on Telegram and say hi and lend a hand.

5) Algos are already being investigated. Anybody who's been around for more than 5 minutes knows that security and distribution are at the heart of DigiByte. GPU mining will definitely be on the cards, hopefully for a few algos, and CPU mining is being looked at also. PoW though, no staking. Any suggestions or constructive feedback is most welcome, though again Telegram seems to be the place this is being discussed more. We've seen discussions oddly enough in the Marketing channel, as well as the mining channel a few times. Please join us there and say hi.

6) Groestl mining isn't profitable for GPUs, but Skein still isn't too bad. The Baikal miners are definitely better off mining Groestl based coins, as they're roughly 5* the hash power of a GTX1080Ti on Skein, but like 15* the power on Groestl. A bunch of people I know who were mining DigiByte on Groestl are just switching to Skein and that's been fine. Others are mining something else and simply exchanging for DigiByte through Bittrex, Shapeshift, you have a myriad of options (Haha, just not Myriad-Groestl, I made a funny...).

Keep in mind the sky isn't falling, Algo swapping was on the cards for a while now BUT it's a big change and we need to make sure that we choose a good set of Algos so we don't have to fork again a few months down the track. Just look at the DigiByte website, under Roadmap, it's been there a while now and the team are well aware of it.

So hang in there. Mining may be a bit interesting for a couple of months, but, with over 100,000 downloads of the DigiByte Core Wallet since the latest version in April (I think it was April?), Shows there's a LOT of people out there interested in, and using DigiByte. The project isn't about to be abandoned, it's chugging along at a steady pace.

And as always come say hi in Telegram, and if you've got algo suggestions we'd love to hear your reasoning behind suggesting them, along with reasons why they'd be ASIC resistant, and be good for helping spread the security of the DigiByte network.

DGB-Skein pool still down, some 24+ hours and counting
Website is up, but, cannot connect the Miner

could someone with a 1060 test something for me?
What Sol/w do you get with 50% TDP, +200 Core Clock & -500 Memory Clock?

Crashes.
Set the Mem to 0 though and it's fine, 222 Sol/s (So 50% TDP and +200 Core) - https://imgur.com/a/h2T3a

I'm having an issue with the DGB-Skein difficulty. It's show up, and so even though I specify username.workername_diff0.256 it's been ignoring my specifying the difficulty. I get some of them going up to Diff 5, which is ridiculous and I'm getting up to 35% rejected as a result.

I have GTX1060's so I need to set the difficulty lower so that I don't end up with stupidly high invalids like this. Previously it's worked fine and I've sat around 2-3%. What's going wrong with the server to make this now ignored / overridden?

Try 0.8 for your difficulty Smiley, let me know how that goes
Yeah the diff is being ignored unfortunately. Have tried diff of 1, 0.256, 0.8, none are staying and the difficulty is causing HUGE problems for the hashrate.

Changing to the MiningField servers and immediately I'm at 98.5% accepted, without changing anything on my side except the URL Sad

I'm willing to mine spreadcoin but the only miner I found is the one published in the thread. it's from 2015 and doesn't support CUDA 8. do u mine with it? It get me 2-3 mh/s on a single GTX 1060. I don't know if that is okay? what do u guys expect for such a card per day? and is there any new miners out there?

My 1060's are getting approx 4100KH/s:

Using this one:
https://github.com/tsiv/spreadminer/releases

I was getting a bunch of "does not validate on CPU!" and it was being caused by both my mild overclock that I'd had from DigiByte-Skein, and, also with my 6th 1060 in the machine. I had to set "-d 0,1,2,3,4" and the it worked with just 5 of my GPU's, the 6th would cause immediate issues.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: How do you use this dual PSU with both molex and sata connector? on: July 10, 2017, 01:43:12 PM
You can connect the SATA to the primary PSU. Alternatively you can use your own molex connection.
The secondary PSU gets connected to the 24-pin, and this way when the primary starts up, it also triggers the secondary.

Easier to just loop pins 3 & 4 in my opinion, if you have a spare molex or sata power cable, just chop that about 3cm long and strip 3-4mm off the each end. As long as the PSU has power from the wall, it'll remain on.
