I guess I should be clear about what a premined coin is.  Premined coins are those above normal within the Genesis block itself.  This chain will not feature such a Genesis block.

By almost everyone else's definition of premined coins is coins that are mined before the client is released to the public. Ixcoin's creator premined 580k coins before releasing ixcoin. Lolcust just happened to come up with a way to put all the premined coins in the genesis block so as to not bloat the chain unnecessarily.

So just say fairbrix will have 3775 premined coins as oppose to tenebrix's 7.7 mil. Nothing wrong with that.
1282  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Coming Soon - Fairbrix on: September 30, 2011, 10:32:17 PM
I love it, "No premined coins except the 3775 I'm premining!".

If you really want to call it fairbrix and claim no premined coins, then you need to donate those premined coins to a faucet or something.

And do you really need to premine to lock in the genesis block? The genesis block can be locked in by itself in the config and no one can mess with it without forking another chain. So what's the reason the premine 150 blocks other than just to keep those coins to yourself?

does not look so profitable to mine at the current price on https://btc-e.com/tbx_exchanger

Profitable compared to what? lol

I've built a mac os binary. It works for me. I can upload it somewhere if you want. Where's a good place to upload binary files?

Well, here it is: http://www.mediafire.com/?po39vc1x87tb3br

I guess you just have to trust that I didn't put any malware in it. Smiley

Nope, difficulty works as in bitcoin, so at 20kH/s and difficulty 0.015625 you'd expect to find a block every 2^32 * 0.015625 / 20000 seconds on average (= ~56 minutes).

Yup, you're right. I just miscalculated.
1287  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANNOUNCE] New alternate cryptocurrency - Geist Geld on: September 29, 2011, 06:43:12 PM
where can i check the total network hash?

1 block every 3 seconds seems..crazy.

It usually is 1 block every 15 but someone dumped a load of hashes on it it must be. Will take 20 s or so to adjust.

Trying to send GG
I get this error: {"code":-4,"message":"Error: Transaction creation failed  "}
4 times, same error. Restarted client, nothing.

Is there a transactions size limit or something? Sending 10k GG in one go didn't work out but when I split the transaction into 2x5K it works.



So you can't send more than 5000 ? Odd, I'll look into that.
Correct
Did some more testing and it seems limit is at 6000

Look at how large this transaction is:

Since all your coins are probably generated in 7 coin blocks, spending 10k coins will require a transaction with 1429 addresses at once. That's probably too large of a transaction.

How much harder is mining Tenebrix versus mining Bitcoin? By my calculation, I should get about 1000 as many TBX than I'm getting right now given my hashrate and the current difficulty. ArtForz, can you comment?
Very roughly a factor of 1000.
PhenomII hexcore here gets ~20Mh/s for BTC, ~20kh/s TBX.

Ok, but is the same factor applied to the expected time to find a block?
Let say the difficulty is 0.015625 and you are mining at 1 kh/s, how long does it take to find a block on average? In other words, how many hashes do you need to find a block on average?

Anyone comparing me to this young adult is pretty silly no? Sure I may have a bigger ego than most but I know what I'm doing, SC2.0 will prove this.

I don't really see what is wrong with lolcust experimenting with this stuff but I do have an issue with him "premining" 7 million coins and not making much reference to it, hoping exchanges will start up and then he can cash out. It seems dishonest to me.

SolidCoin on the other hand, I personally have 10000 coins all up, most of them donated. There is currently 2500 left in the bounty wallet, with over 33000 sent out to hundreds of individuals. doublec has twice as much SolidCoin than me. I know someone else who has 38000 (which is the largest individual holding I'm aware of). So I am working for essentially nothing because I believe in a working online currency not because it will make me personally wealthy. I don't need any more money in my life to be happy, I have a family and software businesses already running generating income. Any dishonest activity on my part threatens all that, so I'd have to be quite stupid to risk it trying to scam people out of their investments with a new currency.

Anyone that has come to know me over the last few months will vouch for this. That said I know my personality isn't the most likeable out there but it's hard to change such things. And I eventually won't be the face of SolidCoin so that should ease some people who care about that.

CoinHunter, great post. I always knew that you are genuinely trying to create a good currency and I knew you weren't in it to get rich. And you have put in a lot of effort in SolidCoin and you did bring in some innovation unlike ixcoin/i0coin. You just need to be a bit more humble (like this post). Like you said, unfortunately, you can't easily change your personality. I'm looking forward to see what you have in store for us in SC 2.0.

If anything, such a large size is indicative of lack of intent to selloff
seriously, if I wanted to sell-off I would have privately mined a few hundred thousands using a subtler trick that I could actually expect to be "hidden until too late".
Selling off several millions is just plain unpossible

I don't understand this argument. You don't have to sell off several million at once. You can sell off a thousand each day for the next 20 years! Why even bother with a laundering service. There's really no incentive for you to do that when you can have a steady income for the next 20 years.
1293  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANNOUNCE] Tenebrix, a CPU-friendly, GPU-hostile cryptocurrency on: September 27, 2011, 11:51:01 PM
The problem with ix wasn't that he had a premined fukton, the problem was that he tried to "bribe" Gavin with them IIRC. That was not nice.

You got it wrong. The problem was not the bribe. It was the premined coins. That's why i0coin was created in the first place! The "0" in i0coin stands for 0 coins premined. i0coin == ixcoin with 0 coins premined. Who wants to create t0nebrix? Smiley
1294  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANNOUNCE] Tenebrix, a CPU-friendly, GPU-hostile cryptocurrency on: September 27, 2011, 11:43:16 PM
Given that there are 7,700,000 premined coins in this chain and the target is 7200 coins per day (25 coins per block * 12 blocks/hr * 24 hours=7200 coins)...and 7,700,00 / 7200 = 1069 days until the network catches up to the number of premined coins....hmmm 3 years.

Well, I just got bored of arguing with a bunch of dudes in PM about how much should I premine and decided to use same number (as a matter of fact, same string) I used for Geist

GeistGeld creates 40320 coins every day. It will take 7.7MM / 40320 = 191 days for the network to catch up.
Ixcoin creates 13824 coins every day. It will take 580K / 13824 = 42 days for the network to catch up.

3 years is a ridiculously long time. You probably should have listened to people's advice to not premine this many coins. It's hard for people to take this coin seriously if it takes 3 years before you have less than 50% of the total coins.

You can tell some trolls have a heated opinion of solidcoin, you have to wonder why they waste so much time attacking it. Think people who attack other chains due to hurt feelings have your wallet in mind?

ThomasV no one is forcing you to mine solidcoin and you can put coinhunter on ignore and quit telling us how much you hate solidcoin. Why not ignore?

and no one forced you to lose money, I did nothing but gain money. I did have a few coins on mooncoin when it went bust and coinhunter is HELPING ME get them back. Did galvin get the guys coins back who lost 25k to hackers? did they get peoples coins back who lost them at mybitcoin? how about the bitomat loss? Nope? well at least they are going to give back the BTC lost by people who had BTC at mooncoin?

NOPE.. odd

Is Bitcoin a centralized currency such that Gavin calls all the shots and can rewrite the chain / dispense BTC as he pleases? I think not.

Precisely the reason to stay far away from SC/CH.

+1

joulesbeef, you are pretty misguided to think that what CoinHunter is doing with SC 2.0 is the right thing for a decentralized currency. Why does he have the power to shutdown the currency? Why does he get to decide who's solidcoins get transferred to the SC 2.0 and who's doesn't? Sure mooncoin might be a scam, but why does CoinHunter get to be judge, jury, and executioner?

What's more ridiculous is he posted on the solidcoin forums asking people for deposit address that they used for mooncoin. So does he plan to revert those deposits just based on one person's claim? What if I sent you a ton of solidcoins (to buy something) and then posted that deposit address on that forum post? CoinHunter would have no idea that the deposit address belongs to mooncoin or not. If he reverts that transaction in SC 2.0, I just double spent those coins. Will he then fix that in SC 3.0?

This whole thing is ridiculous.

So uh, we found a couple blocks...  Grin

There is no better feeling in the world than waking up and seeing a result like that.

My morning wood lasted until like 12PM today, it was fantastic AND awkward.

Buffer went from 60 to almost 700. That's crazy.

I don't get it. Is this a joke? How would one exchange their old solidcoins for bitcoins? Who would buy these solidcoins that will soon become worthless? And how would they then convert their solidcoins to the new 2.0 solidcoins. This makes no sense whatsoever.
